Math's outspoken opposition to Dixie Downs drew a scathing attack last night from an attorney for the proposed two million dollar racetrack at West Memphis, State Rep. Glenn Walther of Little -Rock, counsel for Dixie Downs, Inc., asserted that the governor Is "power-drunk and obsessed with the idea of his own Importance" in saying he will not permit the track to operate even if It Is approved Jan, 23 in a Crittenden County special electiqn. "Beyond His Authority" "Anything he may do is beyond the scope of what he'c authorized by the constitution and the legislature to do," Walther said. "The man has no say as to who will have a license or where races will be run," McMath has said he will appoint in February a new state Racing Commission, one that vvili revoke the franchise of Dixie Downs or nuaj operating license.

Plan for Target of Suit DeQueen Men Charge Rediftricting It 'Not Equitable' ROCK _ T^ new pan for restricting Arkansas to give Pulaskl County three state senators Instead of two has been challenged in the Slat* Supreme oourt- Jess Pickens and Glen Oarrison, Dt<Sueen taxpayers, filed suit yesterday, submitting two alternate plans for reducing the number of senatorial districts to 33. Briefs— 5 Hot Springs, Glenwood Firms Charged with OPS Violations Hot • nd by .nd They said the redlstricting plan adopted by the state reapportionment board last month was not equitable. Following a previous suit by two mask! County taxpayers, the Supreme Court said that population shifts since 1940 entitled PulaskI to at least three senators. McMalh Plan Adopted The ^apportionment board, composed of GOV. McMath, Secretary of State C. 0. Hall and Ally. Gen. Ike Murry. then adopted a plan submitted by McMath The suit filed yesterday oontends: 1. District No. 5, outlined by the i ;„•„ new plan as Scot, Polk, Mont-om- L '"' e ery. Sevler and Little Hivcr Counties, would stretch more than 150 miles from its northern to southern borders. District Is Divided 3- District Ko. 5 is divided "for all practical purposes." At its cen- to', the northwest corner of Howard County is less than 10 miles from the Oklahoma border. 3. The board's action in making ihe rcspportionment was not an effort to make equitable apportionment of the districts. 4. Only five ot 34 districts were affected by tlie new plan. In 29 districts, whose inhabitants number from 41.046 to 82.373 for each senator no changes were made. All May Be Forced to Run The political significance of the suit lies in the possibility that all 35 state senators may be forced to run for office this year. If the adopted plan, goes through, 17 sen- itors who were elected for four- year temTS two years ago must run against this year. The other 17 senators are subject to election this vear. regardless of the adoption of the redlstricting plan.
