Former Highway Director J c Baker said today that the stockpiling was requested by a former district engineer named Manlcy who was not otherwise Identified.' Baker Gives Recollection Baker said it was his recollection that the Informal conference was attended by Manlcy, Highway Commissioners Roy Martin of Ft. Smith and Truman Baker ol Searcy by Fell Vaughan, North Little Rock contractor, Henry Woods. Gov. McMath's executive secretary, by himself and possibly others. Testimony was given yesterday that Arkansas stone and Oravel Co., which is owned by Vaughan sold about $245.000 worth of the total 5525,000 of the stockpiled materials. , Baker said the conference followed but was not a part of a regular Highway Commission meeting. Was Action Ratified? He was asked if the action was ratified by the commission. He replied he believed It was, but that commission minutes did not so reflect. Baker was asked If he recalled n memorandum from Chief- Highway Engineer A. E. Johnson questioning advisability of the extensive stockpiling in the Ft. Smith district. Johnson testified- yesterday to such a memorandum, and the document itself was introduced in evidence. Baker said he did'not recall the memorandum and had'been unable to find a copy, but that Jt was entirely possible that Johnson had .discussed the matter with him. ..The former 'director also was questioned about 66 negotiated contracts which the commission was told yesterday had oeen let during the four-year period cmtr- ed by. the audit. Baker said that he was uncertain whether all ,;the 6fi actually 'were negotl a teffrcoXtrn ot s,- • t hjt t r*r.- -.^n tracts which were agreed to by iiic parties without competitive bidding. He said he would have to check the list before making a positive statement, but that he believed many nf the contracts were for supplying gravel on which price quotations had been asked.. ; Contracts Were "Advisable" ^Hc said the negotiated contracts in cases of »«.u m.>vji i n;j-_->.'Cupper Jacoway asked if Baker believed"'that a road repair would constitute a proper emergency often were advisable emergency.
