(AP Tribunal Says State Agencies Can Legally Use Cash Funds Pay Supplements ' Are Ruled Out by Court, However LITTLE ROCK, Oct. 17.— (AP) —- The^ Arkansas Su- _tireme Court held today that JPuse of cash funds by state agencies and institutions is legal. But, the court held that no cash fund may be used to supplement salaries so that an individual receives a compensation greater than that fixed by. the legislature. In an opinion to which, Chief Justice Griffin Smith dissented, the court affirmed'a ruling of pjilaski Chancellor Frank Dodge that expenditures from 'cash funds are constitutional. \K dismissed in this respect' lY'c- appefr*.|>j. i3p* ^Jines A. Gipaon of S dine-County from podges ruling The high court said, however, that the chancellor erred In holding that cash fund re- oerpts could supplpmenf salaries and ordered that he enjoin such payments. The opinion, viitten by Associate Justice Ed p. McPaddm, defined cash funds as those deprived from such sources as student fees sale of farm produce, dormitory charges, etc.,-"either under express legislative permission or under circumstances known to the legislature fcnd not prohibited by it." •> Hlls Pay "Raises" *' n Five Concerts Are Scheduled By Civic Music Group Here Tlie opinion recited that "some legislative appropriation acts for state agencies and Institutions by express language have limited the salaries of various employes to a- niounts not in excess of those expressed. The proof in this case shows that, notwithstanding such restrictive language, seme of the state agencies and institutions have used some of the cash funds to supplement such salaries with the result that some employees are receiving salaries greater than those fixed by the legislatures. Tills is an illegal procedure, and the appellant (Gipson) is entitled to have an injunction against such procedure." The opinion made a distinction in this respect between cash funds ana additional compensation from federal on other sources or from owments or gifts. There's no- ng to prevent an individual receiving additional money from these latter sources, the court said. The high court said there is "only one allegation that anything Is being done In violation of what the legislature has permitted."— use of cash funds for supplementing salaries on which maxlmums have been fixed." In adopting Chancellor Dodge's findings except in this respect, the high court apparently left the state agencies free to psy employes entirely out of cash funds for Jobs Set CASH FUNDS on Past 19 •Mo Wng Five concert performances, including the National Male Chorus were scheduled by the Blytheville civic Music Association, after a membership campaign was completed Saturday night. b Mrs. Wilson Henry, president o the association, said today well ove 800 memberships haci been gran(c< in the association this year, ant that other mailed memberships were still being received. Tile appearance of the concer artist can not be definitely scheduled until dates are cleared through the National Civic Music Service Inc., in New York City,' with which the Blytheville Association is affiliated, but Mrs. Henry said that at least one of the music, activities would be scheduled before Christmas.

Tlie ensemble is the only group which has been re-scheduled, . Other performances to be included in the music program this year are Claramac Turner, mezzo soprno: Dorothy Eustts. pianist Frank Krwiiin, one of the youngest bass baritones included in the national service; and Richard Dyer- Bennett,, a tenor-minstrel. Mr. Dyer-Bennett- appeared in Memphis last week. His performances axe novelties inasmuch as he accompanies himself with a guitar and the program is varied from operatic numbers to folk songs and ballads. Determined by Vole Mrs. Henry said that the program selections were based on ba'lloti cast this year, indicating the membership's choice of entertainment She explained \that most of the entertainment types ranking highest on the ballots had been obtained, with the exception of orchestral presentations and ballels. She pointed out that the limited budget made it impossible to obtain orchestras, and that the ballet could not be presented on the present stage accommodations. iPanlst was the number one choice, while vocal ensembles, tenors, sopranos, an'l violinists followed in popularity. All concerts are to be presented in the American Legion Auditorium. Arrangements are being made to secure a concert-Grand piano from Memphis for the piano concert. Mrs. Henry said that the cost ol securing the Instrument had been Included m the budget. W. H. Walpole, national representative from New York City, left yesterday to organize a similar membreship drive at Helena, after working with the leaders of the Blytheville Association for about two weeks.

Bell and his brother, Ed, 23, were arrested and Chief Deputy Scott Sawford charged them with murder. Th«y face arraignment tomorrow.

Several pcr.wns recently were Indicted on murder charges In the first two deaths. Three trials were held and all were acquitted. For a while it seemed there would be peace on the mountain. A representative of each faction appeared on a nationwide radio broadcast (We The People) last December and proclaimed an end to the fucd. it evidently didn't take.' Parker was the brother of Theodore (Pap) Parker, reportedly the eader of one of the factions, who s now serving ig months In t. Kentucky prison for transporting Illegal whiskey. There are plenty of relatives and friends to take up the battle If they choose. Chief Deputy Swafford said the Bell brothers are thought to be members of the Parker faction, but that he believes Parker's death is more than a family affair and that it Is connected with previous fued activity. .. -.
