Of 275 children in Head Start centers in Bly- ville last year only 12 came from white families. Ninety percent of a community's funds for the pr o j e c t come from the Office of Economic Opportunity, an official branch of the War on Poverty. The community itself is expected to make up the other 10 percent of the funds used. However, this percentage need not be in cash, but may be computed in building space, equipment, and volunteer services. Mississippi County's share ef next year's Head Start expense funds will be $40,000. The entire budget for next year in the county is $400,000.

In Mississippi County, each city or township wishing to participate forms a local action committee. This committee determines policy on a local level.

Johnson has expressed doubts as to whether this hurt him. Rockefeller says he is sure it did. Rockfeller was asked what he will do about the political situation in Conway County, where he lives and where his friends have been involved in a five-year struggle with Sheriff Marlin Hawkins, leader of the Democratic political faction. 'If the evidence that has come to my attention in reference to the 'Conway County affair' is valid, I feel it would be the duty of the governor, be it his home county or not, to cause an investigation to be made," he said.
