Ben Laney said yesterday he would not ask the rcsigna- • [ion of any member of the board i of control of the State Hospital for Nervous Diseases unless he "finds something concrete that, would Justify such a demand." Tlie governor described as "honest but, generalized" charges made Saturday by the Pulaski County Grand Jury." He indicated, however, that he will continue his observation of conditions at the institution and will make no board changes unless he finds definite reason for dismissal. In a scathing denunciation, the Brand jury demanded the resignation of two members of the board —The Rev. Mr. Harold Sadler of Risen and L B. White. Benton newspaperman. Lancy said he had no right as governor of the state to overstep provisions of the law which require that no board member shall be dismissed without .cause. He indicated that he would have given the grand Jury's recommendations more consideration if it had Pointed out definite reasons .behind its allegations. The governor said he will appoint in the near future a fifth board meiitber to replace Henry Donham, Little Hock attorney, who resigned t some time ago.
