(AP) — Arkansas Revenue Commissioner Dean Mortey said today that the state supreme court's ruling upholding constitutionality of the liquor price-fixing act "will contribute to more rigid enforcement of liquor control laws." He said he was pleased with the court's decision. One of the provisions ot the act authorizes the revenue department to employ an additional 20 agents to investgiate alleged violation o[ liquor laws. While not commenting on the price-fixing aspects of the act, Morley said that without the additional agents "we would have inadequate facilities and personnel to enforce the state's liquor laws."

(AP) —The head of the Church of England has advised Anglican churches throughout the world to Ignore visits of the "Red Dean" of Canterbury, Dr. Hewlett Johnson. Mayor John C. Allum said yesterday he wrote recently to Dr. Geoffrey Fisher, Archbishop of Canterbury, asking him to define the position of the Church of England toward the Dean of Canterbury so Hie city authorities would know how the church stood with regard to any visit Dr. Johnson might make here. "My advice to Anglican churches overseas," the archbishop replied, "Is they should completely Ignore a visit of Dean Canterbury. "It Is unfortunately true that Dean Canterbury so conducts himself as to create embarrassment and difficulty wherever he goes, not as Dean Canterbury or as an ecclesiastic, but purely aj an Individual who .desires to declare his belief on cerlain political matters. There Is no obligation on civic authorities to take any notice of him. r.e is completely unrepresentative of the Church of England and this country." Dr. Johnson frequently speaks at Commnnlst-sDonsored peace con- gre.ves outside K n g 1 a n d. The Church of Enelnnd has disavowed pro-Russian sentiments expressed by htm, but It has been explained that he cannot be removed from office ber.iusc he hr>s not made himself liable to charges in either a civil or ecclesiastical court. f-fit in Olive OJ/ Tariff To Increase Size Here DAVIS. Calif. (AP)—Th avrr- ajje olive In California probably will be bigccr If the tariff 071 Imported olive oil Is cut 50 per cent, as expected.
