(UP) ^-The 'threat tp the' Veterans Vocational Training program in Arkansas apparently ended yesterday When an attorney for radio'com- mentator James MacKrell announced that he has been instructed not to' apodal Mackrell's case against the State Education Department to the Arkansas Supreme Court. After the announcement, made by Attorney John R. Thompson of Little Rock, Education Commissioner Ralph B. Jones said. "Now thai the threat of court action has boon removed we feel that the program can be continued and whatever Is necessary to Veep it going will be done.'!. Earlier this week Jones had told the United Press that he was halting payments to school districts from state funds, pending outcome of MacKrell's suit. The commentator had sought to enjoin the department from using any part of a $700,030 appropriation in paying salaries for on-tlie-job training. Jones had explained that the money was being used as a revolving fund to ic-nnburse local districts, pending a three-to-six months lag in Veterans Administration payments. However, the commissioner said that he believes the Educaiton Department is now in a position to carry on the program from federal funds and said the first reimburse- incni checks fit the 1947-48 fiscal year were moiled out 'today. The checks totaled $350.000 and went to the smaller schools who were in dire G.
