If approved then, the request would be presented to the convention itself in November. In a statement from the board published in the Aug. 4 issue of the Arkansas Baptist Newsmagazine, J. A. Gilbreath and Rev. S. A. Whitlow said some action is essential because of the growing financial impact of Medicare on the center, which will cause it to lose 'a minimum of $15,000 a year." .Gilbreath is administrator of the medical center and Whitlow is executive secretary of the convention.

ABMC Seeks Cut From Convention LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Officers of the Arkansas Baptist Medical Center have recommended that the state Baptist Convention give up its control of the hospital so it can get federal aid without violating the principle of separation of church and state.

Johnson spent most of Wednesday in his headquarters meeting wiBi supporters, in contrast with his heavy schedule of stump speaking during the first primary campaign. Neither Johnson nor Holt has made anything that could be called a stump speech since the July 26 election, and apparently they have decided to do most of their competing for runoff votes on television and in smoke-filled rooms. Both men have scheduled television addresses tonight. Holt, in a statement released by his headquarters, said he favored helping counties buy voting machines. He said the "confusing and unprecented delay h obtaining a final count" in the July 2t election "has pointed up toe urgent need (or voting machines in the larger precincts ID Arkansas." Holt said If elected he would recommend to the legislature that a state fund be set up to aid in the purchase of voting machines. In another development in the race, Dr. James D. Bales of Harding College at Searcy endorsed Johnson, Johnson's headquarters said Wednesday. In a statement issued to news media, Bales said he was not endorsing Johnson in his official capacity as a professor or theology at Harding, but rather as a citizen of Arkansas. "I appreciate his stand for constitutional government. The nature of some of the opposition is a recommendation of him," Bales said. Bales recently took part in a debate on the theory of evou- tion in Little Rock, speaking against the validity of the theory.
