The patient, Gary Pllcher of Malvern, had undergone an op. eration at the hospital Sept. 20, 1962, requiring an Inclslononhis leg. About two months after his discharge, he was admitted to a hospital in Malvern because of a fever and reddened throat. He was later discovered to have the bone Infection.

Thomas 0. Murton said Sunday that .great strides had been made at Tucker Prison Farm In the form of an educational program and a training program. Murton was assistant superintendent in charge of Tucker for almost a year before taking over at Cummins Prison.Farm Jan; 1. I ' v; "The prisoners are sane and happy," Murton said of the inmate at Tucker. "They don't look like prisoners out of Tucker. "They din't look like prisoners out of Dachau." Murton made the comments in a filmed television program shown on KARK-TV. Murton said he still didn't : know how many .Inmates were supposed to be at Cummins. Ho said he had finally determined how many Inmates actually were at Cummins and how many listed as having escaped. Three members of the state Prison Board said over the weekend that they supported Murton and his attempts at reform In the prisons. Dr. William Pierce Lytlce of Clarksville, a board member, said he felt that Murton "certainly has the support of the board." Murton said last week in a letter that he intended to resign as superintendent. He later Informed the Inmates at Cummins that he had not resigned. Lytle said Saturday he felt Murton had displayed "creative leadership" during the past year. Dr. W. Payton Kolb of Little Rock, another member of the board, said he voted to make Murton superintendent and "I'm, of course, going to back htm up," Board member Marshall Nell Rush of Pine Bluff said the discovery of three skeletons at Mormon church had public J Cummins had made the people r,.,...—i ... iu.. _i. _nx.

The statements of the two officials moved away from the previously emphatic position of the Defense and State Departments that they were confident the ship had stayed outside the 12- mile line. McNamara touched on the developing dispute with Congress over protecting such ships when he said such incidents as the Pueblo seizure might happen again. He further indicated that if he knew about such a future situation as it developed. He might not send rescue forces. LEGISLATURE (From Page 1) tufe's action in Its regular session last year committed Arkansas "once and for all to a de- pature from the age-old and archaic system of running our penitentiaries." The governor urged the lawmakers to permit the electorate to decide whether to call a constitutional convention rather than having the legislature decide the issue. He also urged that the .General Assembly enact a bill, prepared by the Constitutional Revision Study Commission, that sets up the mechanics of a convention. "Rockefeller also pleaded that the body enact legislation allowing him to reappolnt Lynn A. Davis as State Police director. "When you chaftg^'the^law •-•j<. .1 hardly need to tell "you I will reappolnt Lynn Davis," he said. The governor referred to his inaugural address in which he spoke of an "Era of Excellence." "I have never faltered In my confidence that we in Arkansas can achieve such an era," he said. Rockefeller said the first step had been taken by the creation of three study commissions.' "To walk a mile one must take first steps and I am proud that we have taken the first steps on the road to excellence," the governor said. "In this unfortunate momont when, once again, Arkansas is being subjected to cruel publicity, we can stand with heads high and say with conviction: What you say may be true, but that is of the past." The governor said "Era of Excellence" had been criticized as a "Jest, a Joke and a farce," but that he had not promised "overnight miracles." However, he said, he had promised to approach every task with all his ability. He is doing that, he said. "There Is great leadership in this assembly , , , leadership that is challenged by the po< tential before us," Rockefeller said, "Yet, there may be those of faint heart who relish In an» ticipating disaster and defeat , , , and no doubt they have reference to my defeat, "But growth, prosperity and a. better Arkansas can not flour' ish tn negative thinking," Rockefeller discussed hisrea,' sons {or wanting two special sessions rather than one, ex* plaining that financial matters would be taken up at a session he plans, probably In May, aft* er a thorough study into state spending has been conducted- cjyring the next two or three months. He said the sudden prosperity from the "windfall" double JR. come tax year in 1966 tod led to the current financial crisis facing the state. He saW the 1965 General Assembly created new programs a,nd. expanded existing ones in anticipation of the tax bonanza that cams when a tax withhold- in| law went into effect at the sjjnvfi time taxes for the pre* Yjous year were beinj paid. "The error, if we can call it that, was in failing to plan adequately for the adjustment period that had to follow the one?. tim*» double collection," Rockefeller said. 5 Arkansons KIIMOotstit TVo pefsofts wefe kilted off the Arkansas highways during the weekeM afld five Arkansas residents lost their Jives in traf« fid accidents outside the state* State Police said Mrs, Flor* eftce ShiUh, 6?, of Roland and Ed Marshall were killed in accidents in the state during (he 54-hour period which ended at midnight Sunday, Authorities said Harley Tol* lett, 44, DeQueen; J.
