Francis Cherry's outspoken supporters. Sen. James D. Johnson, 28-year- old Crossett attorney, said todaj that he will Introduce the bill (c limit a candidate campaign expenses to 10 times the annua salary of The governor's office This would restrict expenditures to SIM.000. In comparisot), forrnej Gov. Sid McMath said once tha he spent $225,000 In each of the 1048 and 1950 campaigns. A similar hill has been Intro duced by Sen. Max Howcll Little Rock. However, Howell's bill would apply j o a ii politics! f campaigns. Johnson said he didn't think that this bill could win approval, but that he was sure that one limited to the gubernatorial campaign would pass. "Those other offices haven't been giving us any trouble anyhow," . he said. Johnson said, he was sure that Gov. Cherry • would not oppose his bill since "it's based on his own campaign practices." ' - Would ' Limit Contributions Besides setting the limit on expenditures, Johnson's bill also would limit a contribution to a candidate's campaign to S500; prohibit annonymous contribution!!, and require Hint a strict accounting of all donations be filed with the secretary of state. In the .event the governor's salary Is increased from Its present S10.000 annually. Johnson said he probably would leave the campaign limit at $100,000. Yesterday, the Senate approved unanimously a bill aimed to circumvent the Arkansas Supreme Court's ruling that total charges by finance. companies on retail sales that exceed 10 per cent of the price of the article constitute usury. The as paying a "fair share and more" of state taxes. The Committee recommended adoption of a proposed tax on pipelines carrying oil, gasoline and natural gas on a graduated scale according to mileage and diameter. Attorneys for two pipeline companies spoke against the measure. The Committee also recommended, for passage, a bill which would forbid issuance or renewal of a liquor licence for any wholesaler who has ever,, beeti convicted of a felony. Hep. J. A. Gipson of Saline County, the author, said such a law now applies to retail dealers and he thought the prohibition also should be extended to wholesalers. The House Public Health Committee, with eight of its 11 members absent, listened to violent arguments on a bill to require a phyeibinl examination before 1s'- suance of a marriage license. A delegation of Christian Scientists opposed the bill, sponsored by Rep. Jim ; Coates Jr., of P'llaskl County. The measure^s Conies' third attempt to get the bill on the statute books. A similar measure died in House without a vote in 1951. Coates Introduced it again early in Ihis session, but Rep. James R. Campbell of Garland County succeeded in amending it to meet objections of the religious group, which believes only in faith healing, and rejects medical aid of any kind. Coates told the Committee last night that he had been advised that the Campbell amendment is unconstitutional because it is class legislation in that it exempts a special group from 'provisions of the bill.

The desperate work of piling sandbags against the threat of new spring tides in Holland went on endlessly as rescuers continued to haul survivors from rooftops, attics, dikes and surrounded high spots where they had shivered days and nights in the snow, hail and icy .winds. Offers of aid and expressions of deepest sympathy poured in from the Americas and from neighboring Western European countries.

Mississippi County farmers were told yesterday by Robei 1 Rawlings of the Arkansas Rice Growers Association. In n rice production meeting at*.

These exports figure to remain as good if not better under the new administration, he said, providing the geueral American.-foreign trade picture is not clouded by additional tariffs. Under the proposed "Trade Not Aid" program, rice would coni.inue to prosper, he said. He said this is why rice farmers are Intensely interested in programs would stimulate foreign which trade.
