Senate Approves 14 WR Appointments By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | Jonesboro. The Senate had sent The Arkansas Senate con- • the appointment back to Rocke- firmed H of Gov. Winthrop appointments to and commissions Rockefeller's state boards Thursday, but rejected one, arousing the indignation of the Republican state chairman. Odell Pollard of Searcy said the Senate's refusal to confirm the appointment of Miss Ann Payton of West Memphis to tha state Training School for Girls at Alexander was a "partisan power play" and a slap to the GOP and Rockefeller. • "Miss Payton's qualifications for this appointment are well established, and we can only ask the senators if they refused her appointment simply •because she is a Republican," Pollard said. He was critical of Sen. W. K. Ingram of West Memphis, who opposed, Miss Payton's appointment. Ingram issued a statement saying he had tried to . co-operate with the governor but that co-operation was "a give and take proposition, not a one-way street." The Senate acted in two executive sessions, one of which lasted hours. It delayed confirming the appointment of Joe Brooks of Jonesboro to the board of Arkansas State University at feller earlier in the day, saying there was no vacancy on the board because the board didn't exist. Arkansas State doesn't become a university until July 1. Rockefeller corrected the appointment to make it to the Arkansas State College board and sent it back to the Senate along with the appointment of Edward H. Boyettof Clarksville to the Commerce Commission. Boyett's appointment was confirmed but action was deferred on Brooks. Included among the confirmations was the appointment of John H. Haley of Little Rock to the state Penitentiary Board, rlaley was approved although some dispute arose as to Whether confirmation required a majority vote of the Senate membership, which would have jeen 18 votes, or a majority of Jiose present. It was learned afterward that ialey was confirmed by a vote of 17-16. Sen. W. D. Moore Jr. of El Dorado reportedly was the principal opponent of Haley's ap- jointment.

The House passed a bill designating archaeological research being conducted under the supervision of the University of Arkansas as the Arkansas Archaeological Survey. It is hoped this would broaden the program and encourage all institutions of higher learning in the state to participate. The representatives also approved a measure outlawing debt adjustment companies. They deferred action, however, on a bill by Rep. Gladys Martin Oglesby of Stamps requiring compulsory immunization against smallpox, polio, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough) and measles. The bill has been amended to grant exemptions on religious grounds. Sen. J.

Officials reported the United States has made indirect contact with representatives of the Viet Cong in an effort to provide for the welfare of Americans believed to be held prisoner by Communist forces in South Vietnam.

"None of this trade is in strategic goods," the department said. Sen.

He asked Secretary of the Treasury Henry H. Fowler to review operations of the Foreign Assets Control Office. Armed Services Committee members report targeting and the restrictions imposed on American fliers operating over North Vietnam have been frequent topics of discussion during McNamara's appearances before the panel. "We sat listening to the recitation of the rules and regulations that are imposed on pilots in Vietnam," said Sen. James B. Pearson, R-Kan. Pearson, a World War II flier, said he doubts he could remember all the regulations set for U.S. pilots in Vietnam. Tower said there is near unanimous feeling among members of the Armed Services Committee that the rules should be made less'restrictive.

There was no way of verifying the reports, but observers in Tokyo pointed out that violence in Pinkiang and Shansi was firsl reported in wall posters and then admitted by Mao's news outlets in reports that the army had quelled the uprisings. A (Liberation Army Daily torial said the army's role was to use force if necessary against Mao's foes, then undertake "political work to awaken those who have been hoodwinked' and win them over. Peking took time out from the struggle between Mao and his foes at home to give some attention to a foreign foe of the Chinese Communist party — the Soviet Union. Several thousand Red Guards and workers demonstrated outside the Soviet Embassy, protesting the roughing up in Moscow Wednesday of 69 Chinese students who tried to place a wreath on Stalin's tomb. The Chinese denied a Soviet claim that the students provoked the incident in Moscow's Red Square by shouting anti- Soviet slogans and starting fights. Both the official Peking People's Daily and the Chinese foreign ministry asserted that Soviet leaders were afraid that the Chinese cultural evolution — Mao's purge—would spread into the Soviet Union and "hasten the awakening of the Soviet pe«- ple to rise in rebellion."

(AP) Two bandits may be carrying around some deadly loot — thinking they have a supply of drugs. Druggist Edgar Hoyle said he found two masked men trying t» open a safe in his drug store Thursday. One of the men pointed a gun and ordered him out of the store. Hoyle said the men then scooped about three dozen small bottles from a shelf and fled.
