"My reputation for fairness will have to stand on my 40 years of public service," the 72- year-old Illinois Republican replied, Dirksen defended his support of the open-housing proposal, past versions of Which he has vigorously opposed, by saying Negro veterans returning from Vietnam "will be entittttledtobe integrated into the social and economic life of our country." Referring to last summer's riots, he said the problems of the cities can't be solved without fairness in the field of housing. Under the compromise measure, introduced just before the cloture petition, a ban on discrimination in the sale or rental of housing would take effect in three stages and—when fully effective—would cover about 70 per cent of the nation's housing units. : Beginning Jan. 1, 1970, home owners would be barred from discrimination in the sale of their property if they made use of a real-estate broker. They would be exempted from coverage only if they handled the sale themselves. They would lose their exemption if, in sales advertising, they indicated racial or religious discrimination. The first stage of the open- housing provision would take effect' immediately and apply to housing financed with Federal Housting Administration or Veterans Administration guarantees, to public housing and to urban renewal projects. •w m 3 *» yt 17th.

Disappointed Over Real Estate Bill By ED SHEARER Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller, fighting a financial crisis that appears to be the central Issue In the forthcoming gubernatorial cam- palgtij expressed disappointment over defeat of a documentary real estate tax transfer bill during the special session of the legislature. "How we can turn down $500,000 I can't understand," Rockefeller said in reviewing the session that ended last week. The bill was one of only a handful of, the .administration measure's* that "'failed to-pasVin the session. Among the other defeated bills were ones that would have created an Association of Arkansas Counties, authorized the state retirement system to purchase common stocks in corporations and provided for retailers to post bonds when their sales tax remittance was delinquent any two months in a 12-month period. Rockefeller also 'contended that his "Lynn Davis" bill was defeated since the legislature attached an amendment requiring the State Police director to be a qualified elector. Davis, who was ruled ineligible for the post by the state Supreme Court, had registered to vote in Texarkana last July when he signed a sworn affa- davit that he had lived in the city continuously for two years. However, within that two-year period Davis had also signed a sworn affadavit in Wyoming saying he had lived there one year when he registered to vote in that state on May 13, 1966, Rather than face the possibility of further litigation, Davis announced that he was withdrawing from consideration for reappointment. The documentary stamp tax bill was defeated in the House with opponents referring to it as a new state tax, one that would have required the purchase of stamps at 55 cents per $500 value on real estate being transferred. Rockefeller said the tax would have produced $500,000 a year for the state and that the federal government Had removed itself from this particular area so that the state's could get the revenue, The lawmakers may face the same bill again in May when the governor calls a second spe? cial session to act on matters in an attempt to resolve the state's financial crisis. The bill that would have created an Association of Arkansas Counties proved to be one of the most controversial measures acted on during the I34ay session.

Joe Pur- eel! fof not hating rendered an opinion concerning legality of rilds on such clubs as Top of the Rock in Little Rock, Rockefeller said the request was made Feb. 6 by Marrel Hughes, director of the Alco* hotle Beverage Control Board. The question arose when Rockefeller was asked why raids had been conducted In Hot Springs and not In Little Rock on clubs such as the Top of the Rock or the Little Rock Country Club. Raids were conducted on three private clubs In Hot Springs Tuesday night In which liquor was confiscated by State Police and ABC agents. Rockefeller said raids were not being made in Little Rock at this time because the administration was waiting on the opinion. "When the time comes that that ruling is against the Top of the Rock, then the Top of the Rock can be raided, too," he said. However, Hughes later said that the, specific question of PRESS whether private clubs such as country clubs could be raided by the ABC was not specifically placed in his request. Asked when he anticipated the opinion, Rockefeller said, "Have you dealt with the attor- break that budget before it even goes into effect. \ Military spending in the current fiscal year was pegged fast way construction projects the Arkansas Highway Commissioner opened bids on Wednesday.

Purcell, advised of Rockefeller's remarks, said, "It indicates that maybe he (Rockefeller) has decided that our opinions do reflect an interpre- indicates that in the future he will not only give official recognition to them but that he will follow the opinion." Purcell said, that to his knowledge, all officials in the state had through the years followed the opinions rendered by an attorney general, and that Rockefeller was the only one who "chose to disregard the month at $73.7 billion including $5.4 million. $24.5 billion for Vietnam but this Buchanan Bros.

He said there is no reference to alcohol in the law providing for the establishing of private clubs.
