BY BOB IIKOWN I'nilcd Press Staff Correspondent LITTLE ROCK, Ark.. March 15. — Despite the highest appropriations of recent years, Arkansas highways will dctcriorale faster than Ihey can be rebuilt during Ihe next biennitnn, according to W. W. Zass. chief engineer of Ihe Highway Departmen;. "With higher costs o[ labor, materials and equipment, we will not be able to make all of the necessary repairs with the funds which w.j'c appropriated." lie asserted. Expansion 01 the present highway system appears highly iinyroii- nbie, Zass declared. The engineer admitted (lint lie as an individual and a member of Gov. Ben Lancy's Highway Advisory Committee' was -disappointed lhat no long range highway financing plan was introduced in Ihe Slith .General Assembly, Laney refused lo present a program'drawri up by the commiltee that would have increased gasoline and sales : inxes lor highway -purposes. ', "I believe the people .would have paid-'a higher gas tax'without objection," Zass said, "although i did not favor 'the sales levy, :is a mentis of financing highways." •••• SVO.OOU.OOI) Appropriate!! Principal legislative action on highways came in Ihe form ol appropriations lotalino approximately $70,000,000 for the next two years and in efforts ol rural county representatives to change the formula under which they receive state funds. The formula was not chanE- ed. Zass pointed out that Ihe huge Inial appropriation could not be used as a criterion upon which to base expenditures during the next two years. He asserted that about $12,000,000 of the total, incluclins state and federal funds, was in ue- ficiency appropriations for the remainder of this year. Of (he $12.500,00!) a .year In federal money appropriated, the state can expect only $7,500.000 : a yej-.r. The balance, he said, was appropriated to care for a possible increase in federal money during the v.vo year period. County roads In Arkansas were benefittcd by the legisla.urc to tne ' of $2.000.000 immediately with another $2.000.000 a year gunrnn- lecci if highway revenues go nl^-h enough. The firsl fund was appropriated from money already on hand. The second will come only If highway revenues reach $23.050,CCO. At present, estimates on hlsh- wiy revenues ate lhat they "might reach S22.000.000 a year." Conlracl Policy Liberalized Other highway legislation was mager. The General Assembly approved a bill introduced by Hep. Claud Coffcll of Demon County allowin gthe highway commission to authorize contracts up -.o S10- Ofo without taking bids. The present ceiling Is 81,000. Legislation to license trucks and buses on a wcighl basis failed, after being amended until It would have been Ineffective. Anotncr measure wns defeated after being amended to refund laxs on gasoline Used for farm iraclors. The Highway Department failed to introduce a bill lo sel up staggered terms for its commissioners. , So— despite a world O f talk fo Ihe past year and a stnggern., amount of work by Ihe governor's advisory committee—Ihe Highway Department will B o along much as before the lawmakers met. Before it now arc contracts to;nlitif; $12- SOO.OOO, and O n March 28 it will IB others. ng let Weather Big Four Have Informal Chat 11 sola In the Soviet Aviaiion Indusli} U. S.
