Vanc« Clayton havf been advised bjr th» attorney general to.make no further payment* allocated by the board of fiscal control. However, Attorney General Guy Z. Williams Mid he believed they may pay out public funds under current lump-turn and now non-itemized appropriations. Williams, In an official opinion yesterday, said regardless of any Implication which may be found in a recent Supreme Court ruling, the court has never uld directly that lump .sum appropriation! are void, or that itemizatlon of appropriations is required by the corutitu- tlQn. But, h,e said, as the result of a high court opinion In a suit brought by Radio Evnuglelst James Mackerel!, the authority of the Flsca Control ' Board to allocate funds from emergency appropriations has been left In doubt. Until the courts are presented with an opportunity to clear up the point, Willinms advised the fiscal officials not to dis- bures funds allocated by the fiscal bonrd, The Mackreil suit sought to prevent the fiscal control board from transferring emergency funds to the Legislative Council to pay the salaries of a research director and a secretary. In ruling in favor of Maekrell, the ilgh court stressed the fact that no monies could be paid out except by .pei'iftc appropriation. With the Courts Chancary , Edith Hickerson v*.
