Nfw Fifing System Isn't Enforceable Except by Politicians LITTLE ROC K'.Ti — Some old political combines were upset when the Arkansas Supreme Court redistricted the state's senatorial districts, but new ones apparently | are In the making.

The County Democratic Committee in each of Use three counties either has agreed to that procedure or had indicated il will do j so. • Filings Follow I'attern So far the filings at the Secretary of Stale's office here have followed that pattern- Sen. J. Lee Be&rden of Blytheville (Mississippi County) has filed for position No. 1; Doug Bradley of Jonesboro (CraigheadJ has. filed for position No. 2, and John S. Mosby of Lepanto (Poinsett) has filed for position No, 3. So far they're the only ones to file. The arrangement is a new variation of the "gentlemen's agreement," long popular in many of the old senatorial districts. Until the Supreme Court ordered the redlstricting, Pulaskl County, as a district within itself, was the only area having more than one senator. But in a number of the multi- county districts, the practice was to rotate the senatorshlp from county to county each term. It would be County A's time to select R senator one term, County B's at the following term four years later and so on. Only candidates from County A County B or County C would run when It was that county's turn, Not EnforcrjtWH Lawyers agree that the arrange' ments—either the old type or the new variation—have no enforce able legal basis but say that P prospective rebel might have hard going against the influence of poll tical leaders in his own county who were parties to the deal Open Hish LTA* .. 4085 4100 4061 .. 4002 4010 3D73 .. 3635 3710 3670 .. 33G2 3074 3G28 Robcrson serves as student director.

Towns nnd cities nil over Ihe country were affected . . . but the consequences of failure hunji wilh particular foreboding over New York and its jam- packed millions. \Vith reservoirs slamiinjf at n third of capndly, the compelling need for additional water resources was suddenly thrtisl upon the attention of the most indifferent citizen. And communities everywhere, whether affected by (he shortage or not, began npiirnisinrr the stains of their water supplies. Tbey found n number of factors which were influencing the picture. Throughout America, two patterns of population movement have been revealed in recent years. People are leaving the rural areas and moving to the cities: people are leaving the cilies and moving to nearby suburbs. The result—a tremendous population growth In nuMropnlilnn areas. In terms of water supply, this means ever-increasinif demand. The country cousins who settle in the city must now be supplied. And BO must the city covisin who becomes a subuvlianile. He moves to the suburbs because he finds there Ihe urban facilities to which he is accustomed in n more attractive setting. Blytheville Water Co.
