___SATUnDAY, AUGUST 19, 1959 State Budget System To Oust 'Deadwood' Kt.YTTOCVTT.T K fARK.I LITTLE ROCK, Aug. 19. (AP>A budget sfstem which will enable the Arkansas administration and josuilaltire to put their finsjcr on '<icad\voort" in state jobs 1m been set i]]) bj State Comptroller Lee "Oy Beasley. Tho system has been set up by Beaslry in preparation for budget "quests for the 1951-53 ilscal bien- Mni anrt would give ihe legislative Wmcil and the budget commiltce "s first rea i c i eilr check on t He actual need for certain jobs and po- Eitionj;. It would require each institution j">d department lo set out line-uy- ''inc the complete list of personnel >l requires to operate along with the names of the person.-; filling these regular positions. It would also require each unit to Justify cadi position by pointing; out the actual work each employe Is required lo do. the hours worked the months worked, and the salary cinuvn. Salaries to lie Ojn.ilm-il The le^isJatme would Iv.we for ihe first time a chance to nquarize t-ularies of persons tloin<; idon'.lral j"h; in separate departments. Some ' of the salaries for such Jobs now I vary sharply by departments although the work involved Is the same. It would also eliminate practices by some departments and Dustllu- tions of shoving a budget through listing, for instance, "12 staff members nt a salary of $4,000 each," without au explanation of their duties. Such practices, particularly in the University of Arkansas where large numbers of jobs were listed at "staff members" without explanation, drew sharp fire in the last session of the legislature. Must Justify Kxlslrnce In addition to justifying its personnel, each agency must also justify its own existence and work with a statement of services It renders and. in case of institutions, the number of persons to whom service is rendered. Specifically asks that colleges submit statements concerning enrollment both in regular terms, summer terms and extension courses, 'flu's has always been a subject of considerable argument among schools seeking their appropriations.

It has some reports from the U.N. information center in Moscow. The report-s show that a certain amount of U.N. documents have been distributed there and that the center has had vtsltoi —800 last year. But the U.N. doesn't knnw how the documents got distributed. Doesn't Re.irh Many Herts These fragmentary reports reveal oiils- that the U.N. message lias never been carried to Russia's millions on the same large scale ns it is done In the United States, by schools, colleges, civic clubs, newspapers, radio, and voluntary organizations that work for support of United Nations efforts. A recent Tj.N. document, entitled "Teaching about (he United Nations and the Specialized Agencies," carries 75 pages of reports how the U.N. is brought home to the people In the western countries, ft i.s a report to the economic and social council meeting in Geneva, sicned by Trygve Lie, U.N. secretary-general, ;-nHd', Jaime .Torres Bodel, dl- rcctor-£«ieral of Uncsco.' >0ne paragraph says '•Information ^•the publication of materials on tht United Nations lias been rc- TIMES-United I ress Correspondent Rutherford Pwits uses Ihe quickest meaii^ possible of getting his story out from an advance Air Force base in Korea, lie releases a carrier piseon, owned by a Japanese ncA'_s agency, which will lly to Moj., m j a pa ni trom vvhich lafc % e , T'l { f phoned by 3 direci \»ne to Tokyo, where it is re- 'nvM lo r - Dr. OHie Parker DENTIST .innouncrs Ihe opening of his O f- ticcs in the Inpram Kiiitriing formrrlj occupied by Dr. If, A F^vlor, Office Hours S::!0-5:00 Telephone 2792 Residence Phone 2111 OPEN EVENINGS BY APPOINTMENT ccivcd from White Russia.

No details have beeri given as to the administrative machinery tiirouglt wliicli these are being distributed, but it is assumed Ihnt re- .sponsihilicy lies with the Ministry of Education in each country." No '49 Activity Llslfd Also the report, does nto list any activity during ">49 tn any Iron curtain country, except Czechoslovakia. There it makes a fleeting reference to U.N. reports forming a part of history and civics lessons in the schools. Some up-to-date unofficial figures, however, indicate that about 33.000 U.N booklets and other literature nnd several dozen documentary films were given some distribution In Russia through the U.N information center in Moscow. There are 16 such U.N. information centers tn the world. Most of these centers—not all—are headed by U.N appointees who are. not nationals of the country where they are stationed. The head of the Moscow D.N. Information center Is a Russian Michael s. Vavilov, who used to be head of the Russian Embassy information section in Washington. He was sent to Moscow as acting director when the center opened. ' : Fe«"Know.^f Office ' One former Moscow correspondent (Joseph Newman, of the New York Herald Tribune) now stationed In Berlin reported last June that few Russians know the office exists Lie denied that after he came back from Moscow on his save-the-UN tour of Europe. He said Muscovites saw the bine and white U.N. ring flying over the center at 15 Hohlov- ski Pereulok, Moscow, and that U N officials used the offices on their visits. Lie did not say then, however, how much the Russian people themselves .used the center. New information from Moscow assert.'; that ordinary citizens were among the SOD visitors to the center during 1949 nnd said thai they saw U.N. material there without any prior censorship.
