At the same time, Johnson put Into the Congressional Record a June 25 letter to him from President Elsenhower In which Elsen- hower said he would ask Congress for new legislation if he found present laws Inadequate to deal with the Southwestern drought situation. Court Can't Agree on Articles LITTLE ROCK 1JV-The aistlnc. tion "a" and "the" figured in reversal of a case by the Arkansas Supreme Court today. Two justices dissented. The suit was one in which Saline County Circuit Court jury held that members of the John F. Lydon family from California were not entitled to recover damages fro mHot Springs newspaper editor Robert S. Dean for injuries suffered in a highway collision near Benton. Attorneys for the Lydon family proposed an instruction for the jury saying that if Dean's neglig- ! ence was "a" contributing cause of the accident he could eb held responsible even though the other driver', Lydon, also was negligent. Circuit Judge Ernest Maner changed "a" to "the" at insistence of Dean's lawyer and over objections of the Lydon attorneys. The Supreme Court said this slight modification changed the meaning, making the jury think Dean had to be the only one negligent before a judgment could be returned against him. The majority opinion was written by Associate Justice Paul Ward. Chief Justice Griffin Smith wrote this brief dissent: "I do not attach the 'the' and 'a' the legalistic mischief assessed by the majority. It is my view that such chimerical shadings do not influegnce a jury's verdict," Associate Justice Minor Millwee also dissented but wrote no opinion.
