War Claims Arkcmtan By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (Af») - The Defense Department released Monday a list of 112 meft, in- eluding one Arkansan, who have been killed in action in Vietnam. The Arkansaft was identified as Marine 1st Lt, Richard J. Glenn, husband of Mrs. Patricia S. G. Glenn, of North Little Rock, The Defense Department also notified Mrs. Laverfie Mitchell of Bald Knob Monday that her son, Marine Pfc, Larry Mitchell, had been killed in action in Vietnam. Suggests Outsiders Be Colled in ByNEILGlLBRlDE AP Labor Writer MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - AFL«CIO President George Meany says voluntary arbitration by "impartial" outsiders might be the answer to the nation's rising rash of strikes by public workers ranging from garbagemen to teachers, State laws forbidding strikes, under which some union leaders have gone to Jail, aren't the answer, said the chief of the 14- million member labor federation. "I think there Is a basic right of an individual to quit his Job If he doesn't like the conditions under which he works and I don't think he should lose that right because he happens to be a civil service worker," Meany told newsmen Monday. "On the other hand, there Is a basic right of the general public to expect service from these workers," Meany said. "I think it might be that you could set up some sort of a system of voluntary arbitration by which the unions would agree that their conditions would be set up, not by some politician holding a public office, but by some system of Impartial people," Meany said. Union organizing of public workers has been one of the most rapid areas of tho labor movement's growth In recent years and has been marked by strikes of policemen, firemen, teachers, welfare workers, garbage collectors and many others. ;-' BIRTH1MY BARGAINS LADIES SHELLS LADIES SWEATERS $122 1 22 % OFF LADIES SPORTSWEAR SHORT SETS CULLOTTES- CAPRI SETS- SUITS-SHIFTS REG, 8,99 LADIES & PETITE DRESSES REG, 12,99 REG, 1,99 OUTING PJ.'s REG, 1,99 HALF SLIPS REG, 7.99 AND M9 •ps $122 PANTY LOUNGING PJ.'s REG, 99?

Rep. Leon Hoisted of North Little Rock made the motion, saying he believed the bill, which would allow the Immediate reappointment of Davis as State Police director, could be approved by the General Assembly before final adjournment of the special session. The bill, drafted by several members of the Pulaski County delegation, would have required the director to be a resident but not a qualified elector. House Bill 49, which has been passed by both houses, requires the director to be a qualified elector. Rep. James Llnder of West Helena, arguing against the motion, said it was "ridiculous" to call the bill out of committee at this late hour because it would be impossible to pass It. "There's no point In bringing it up," Linder said. "Let's leave it In State Agencies where it belongs." Linder is chairman of the committee. •*:.'^9U . . ;• -,'/ *fi'' 'flfl*'''' SenateSpells Out the Poll Closing Low LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ The Arkansas Senate today passed an sent to the House a bill which spells out who can vote at the time the polls close. The bill specifies that all persons In line at the time polls close at 7:30 p.m. shall be allowed to vote. Prevous law failed to spell out that those in line should be permitted to vote. The bill, which passed by a vote of 25-0, kept the polling times as they are at present— 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m u Pictures All Policemen on Tight Rope WASHINGTON (AP) - Atty, Gen. Ramsey Clark pictured the policeman today as "a man on a tight rope" who can cause a riot by overacting or permit one by underacting. "The policeman Is the most important man in the United States today," Clark said, "It is not because he caused, or is responsible for the conditions that exist, but because, like the mountain, he is there," "Performance of the police during this and the next several years will vitally affect the course of this nation, for better or for worse, for decades to come," he added, Clark said, "Riots are as old as mankind, They are the an. {{thesis of humaneness, intelli' gence, faith and charity which are the hope of civilization," But he said people fear riots most of a}} "because our lives have been more comfortable than most, Our fear exsgger* ates what we have experienced and can anticipate,'' 6 Plan on Cre§ fin* Pol« MINNEAPOLIS, Minn, (A?) — Five Americans an4 one Ca* nadian will make mother at? tempt to travel overland to the North Pole, If they succeed they will be the first men to nave reached the Pole by surface since Com» modore Robert E, Peary made it in 1909, TALLAHASSEE, Fla, A statewide walkout by Florida public school teachers that shut more than half a million pupils out of Class Monday went Into its second day today, Spokes* men said 9,000 more teachers will join the 26,000 Who have quit their Jobs. A hearing was set this after* noon before Circuit Judge 1 Ben, C, Willis on the state's request for a permanent injunction to end the walkout, The Florida•' Education Association holds that in resigning their Jobs, teachers are not violating an antistrike law and cannot be ordered to work. Several local school boards went Into county courts seeking Injunctions to halt what they termed Illegal strikes 1ft their counties. The association's dispute with the state is over the public education program. The association says the state has not provided enough money. School officials in the state's 67 counties said 26,005 teachers — out of 60,844— were off the job Monday All classes were canceled In 21 counties. Other boards operated sporadically, some closing high schools while keeping elementary schools open as babysitting facilities. In Daytona Beach, sixth grade girls were assigned to care for first and second graders. There are 1,300,000 pupils in the state's 1,800 schools. In some schools which operated normally, officials said, attendance fell off. School Supt. Floyd Christian and Wade Hopping, an aide to Gov. Claude Kirk, said It was too early to tell If the teachers' walkout would be effective. In a dozen rural counties, notably In the Florida, panhandle, teachers almost unanimously rejected the call by the association to leave their jobs. In other areas 60 to 80 per cent of the teachers were off the job. In the Miami area, the Dade County school system—largest in the stae with 217,906 pupils- was closed. Of Dade's 9,430 teachers, 6,204 were staying away from school. , <• .,, ;The association had rejected a public ,0 ,d.u r c a"|t 1 o' n pro gram passed last Friday by a Special session of the legislature just before adjournment. That bill, still awaiting signature or veto by Kirk, provided $254.5 million. But the association said only $116 million of that was nes money for education with the rest providing tax relief to property owners. The association wants a bill providing $267 million in school money, not Including construction. The association says teachers will not return until such a law is passed. McNAMASA from Pago One son's war policy has damaged the conduct of U.S. foreign affairs. McNamara's appearance before the Foreign Relations Committee was expected to focus on two naval engagements In the gulf off North Vietnam In August 1964 Involving U.S. destroyers and enemy torpedo boats. The Incident led to near-unanimous approval of a resolution President Johnson has cited frequently as evidence of congressional support for his war poll- cies, FulbrJght was floor manager for the resolution In the Senate, But he has since become a leading war critic, The first development in Ton. kin Gulf was on Aug, 2, 1964, when the uss Maddox clashed with three torpedo boats, On Aug, 4, the Maddox and USS C, Turner Joy were on patrol in the same area and anoth.. er attack was reported.

"The House of Representa- lives has an opportunity to stand firm and retain a high degree of respectability, together with an improved image that reflects public favor and confidence," Cockrlll said, "It is an experience that should stir the pride of all House members." Wage Bill Is Signed Into Law byWR LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The state's first minimum wage bill, which goes into effect Jan. 1, was signed into law Monday by Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller. The measure sets a minimum wage of $1 per hour on Jan. 1, 1969 with increases to,$1.20 an hour by Jan. 1, 1971. All businesses with five or more em- ployes are covered by the bill. Rockefeller had two similar minimum wage proposals from which to choose and he selected the administration measure. Charles Perrault gave the Mother Goose stories to the world. Compromise Prison Bill Is Passed fiy fet3 SHEARER Associated Press Writer Lift LE ROCK (AP) *. Soth houses of the Arkansas General Assembly passed a compromise prison reform measure Monday and they must come to grips with differing constitutional convention bills if they hope to end a special session today.,. there is a general feeling that adjournment can come on the 12th day of the first of two special sessions planned by Gov* Winthrop Rockefeller* Both houses convened at 10 a»m, The administration's bill set* ting up the procedure for a con* stltutionai. convention passed virtually as it was introduced in the House while the Senate attached some amendments* The major differences are in apportionment —' the House bill based on the 1967 House apportionment and the Senate on the 1965 apportionment— and in the time a document would be sub* mitted to the electorate for approval—a 1069 special election is the House's wish and the 1970 general election is the Sen* ate's* The Senate Monday passed the bill creating a Department of Corrections unamended while • the House attached amend* ments striking the parole eligibility section and assuring that a diagnostic center be constructed on present prison property at some time in the future. Meanwhile Sen. Guy Jones of Conway virtually killed the administration's "Lynn Davis" bill in the Senate when he pushed through a motion to dispose of all business in the call before taking up the Davis bill. This, said opponents of the motion, sounded the death knell for the bill since passage by the Senate would require the House to convene an extra day Just to act on it. In other action Monday, the House defeated a bill establishing salaries for the commissioner of corrections and two secretaries. The main feature opposed in the bill was a section providing that money derived from the sale of manufactured goods at the prison go into a cash tetd spent ottdef the di* faction of the Boafd of COtfec* <i -i j» -*t There could be a 90-day dlf» fersnce In when the Department of Coffecttons is established* the deflate passed the emet* gency clause on its bill but the House felled to pass Its emef* gency clause, meaning if the House measure Is the one eventually passed and signed into law, the department could not be set up until 90 days after final adjournment of the special session. Several senators objected to various sections of the bill but voted for it anyway, Sen, Dan Sprick of Little Rock said the measure "will come back to haunt not only you who vote for it but the administra* lion as well," "We're eloping with a wife we know nothing about and we are marrying a wife we might not be able to divorce," said Sen, Richard Earl Griffin of Crossett as he spoke against the bill. Jones said he was not yielding to pressure from the governor's office but that he had to vote for the bill* He said there is a "newspaper nut at the penitentiary and a publicity paranoid in charge of the State Police, and if Win (Rockefeller) is going to get his name in the paper, the (Arkansas) Gazette will have to put out a third edition," The only House member speaking against the bill was Retn Albert mm tf Stattp'H who said, rr f h« toffitii in oar community are afraid to stay at home at night," He said daughters in three families is his douflty hid teen raped and that nothing had been done about it, "this bill tovites more of ii by laxity," Ha^es said, He especially opposed a work release section which would permit inmates to work outside the prison and draw a salary, "If we're goflna coddle the prisoners down at this farm and tax the people for It, It's time for us to stand up and be count* ed," Hayes said.
