TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1947 Medical Center Ruling Affirmed State Officials Get Go-Ahead Signal on Re-locating College LITTLE ROCK, Aik., Dec. 16. *^ (UP)—The Arkansas Supreme court ^ yesterday upheld Hie boards ot the University of Arkansas anrt State Hospital i n their plaits to build a medical center on the hospital grounds In Little Rock. In a unanimous opinion written by Associate Justice J. S. Holt, the court ruled thai the boards have "a broad discretion in tlie discharge of their trusts and usless it is made to appear that their discretion has been abused, their actions cannot be restrained." "We find no abuse of discretion." the opinion added. The court's opinion affirmed Pu- laskl Chancery Court in dismissing a friendly plea for an injunction filed by Edward H. Lindsay, a Little Rock taxpayer. The decision gave 'the boards the green light, on erection of H 42,500.030 memorial hospital and removal of the University of Arkansas Medical School trom Its present East Little Rock location to the hospital grounds. In another ruling, the Supreme Court upheld a 1947 law creating a 12-hour work-week for uniform firemen in Arkansas cities ot the first and second class. Libel Judgment Upheld The action affirmed a Pulnsltl Chancery Court decree granting a restraining order to V. G. Throckmorton, H. E. Adams and C. M. Orif/ln, members of the Little Rock Fire Department. The request lor a restrarning order was aimed at O. L. Nalley, chief of the Little Rock Fire Department. *w Pointing out that the action had V.nothtng to do with salaries or claims for overtime, the Supreme Court said the lawmakers contemplated no purpose other than to limit to 72 hours Hie time a uniform member of the force should be required to be on duty. The Supreme Court also upheld a libel Judgment of $500 against the West Memphis News. The original charges were filed by Crlttenden County Judge Cy H. Bond following a heated political campaign last Summer. Bond had requested $10,000 damages, but was awarded $500 on a change of venue in Craighead County. Today's opinion written by Chier Justice Griffin Smith reviewed all circumstances leading up to the editorial charges made by Paul and John Coughlin, publishers of the paper. Had Charged Corruption The newspaper had charged that Bond "corrupted the county road program to his financial betterment." .Other Items alleged that. Bond was the leader of a, political "gang" whose "shameless Nazi- like violation of civil liberties . . . «.! brought a federal Investigation and jf the conviction of three persons in Crittenden County." In the lower court, John Coughlin had explained that by "corrupt" he meant using the county road fund to Bond's own advantage. He also said that charges of vote- stealing and corruption l n the county were not aimed specifically at Bond, but at a political organization of which Bond was the recognized leader. In upholding the lower court's decision, Justice Smith wrote: "Irrespective of the Impulse to accuse, under our system of government there are excesses beyond which one may not go without assuming the responsibility of compensation." He added that the newspaper made "ordinary implications" which could not be brushed aside with an explanation that no offense was Intended. And finally, the Justice wrote that truth was the only defense for charges and implications that Bond had allowed law violations in Crlttenden County. Z ronce Honors St. Lo Hero BLYTHEVrLLB (ARK.)
