COURIER NEWS PAGE THRB1 $7.5 Million Borrowed By State Colleges For Additional Housing WASHINGTON (AP) — Arkansas colleges have borrowed more than 1(4 million dollars from Uncle Sam to bulid housing for increasing numbers of students. And the Housing and Home Finance Agency, which handles the college loan program, says the total undoubtedly will increase, since Congress this year provided that loans now can be made also for dining, health and other facilities. Arkansas scholos have received loans as follows: Ouachita Baptist College, two totaling $315.000; Arkansas AM&N. .%—!'a,???: Henderson State Teachers College, 8375,000, and Hendrix College. $300,000.

In amending the program this year, Congress also reduced the interest rate from 3to per cent to 23.', per cent and boosted the maximum loan period from 40 to 50 years. "Don't get thft idea that these colleges are strapped for money and have to come to the govern merit," said a spokesman for the housing agency. "Most colleges borrow money to build dormitories. They now are borrowing from the government because private banks can't match the 2 J /j per cent interest rate." Ford Fund LOUISIANA. Mo.

A. M. Bryant, FBI agent in charge here, identified him as Tilmon B. Benson, 39. Bryant said he was picked up at De Queen, Ark., yesterday. Bryant said Benson is accused of Author Is Fined, Sentenced For His Silence WASHINGTON tf) — Author Harvey O'Connor was fined $500 and given a one-year suspended jail sentence yesterday for refusing to say whether he was a Communist when he wrote books used in U. S. overseas libraries. O'Connor told tJ. S. Dist. Judge Joseph C. McGarraghy he felt "the real reason I am here in court today is because I wrote books." He added that he regards the First Amendment as "the crux of this case." That amendment makes the guarantees at free speech and free press. Before imposing sentence, the judge ruled O'Connor was guilty of contempt of Congress for refusing to tell Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) whether he was a member of the "Communist conspiracy" when he wrote the books later used by the TJ. S. Information Service in libraries abroad. , McCarthy at the time headed the Senate Investigations subcommittee. being one of the two men who held up the Inland Empire Bank at Umatilla. Ore., on last Aug. 22 and escaped with t57,515. He said Benson had lived at Tex- arkanji, Ark.-Tex., and at Grandview, Wash. Benson, whose occupation Bryant did not know, was to be arraigned later today before a U. S. commissioner at Texarkana, Bryant said the U. S. attorney at Portland had filed a complaint against Benson and had requested that bond be fixed at $100,000. The bank was protected by federal deposit insurance, making its robbery a federal offense. Bryant would not say what led the FBI to suspect Benson in the robbery.
