£Dtai* Brownlft* Observe Health and Safety Industrial Bond Plan Scuttled "."' LITTLE ROCK (AP>-Robert ; Mlllwee, executive director of .the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission, said Tues_day that Arkansas' industrial development bond program has been scuttled. Mlllwee said the Treasury De'. partment's recent reversal of a ' 1954 regulation, which permitted industrial bonds Issued In the' 'name of the states and localities to be exempt from taxation, would kill two programs which Arkansas has used to promote "unparalled" Industrial • growth since 1958. ,' The programs the state has ; been using are Act 9 of 1960, •• which authorizes cities and : counties to issue revenue bonds vto finance construction, and "Amendment 49 of 1958, which *. allows cities and counties to is• sue ad valorem bonds for In.: dustrial purposes. r Mlllwee said that bonds now .up for election would not have • the tax status removed. | The AIDC director said may- f ors and county judges were be• ing asked to enlist support of • Arkansas' congressional delega: tion to get Congress delay ac; tion of the Treasury's action until Congress can act on it. : Mlllwee said Rep. Wilbur : Mills, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, "has done a yoemanllke job In keeping this from happening before." ; Millwee said Gov. Wlnthrop Rockefeller has contacted the • White House "on basically the : same premise that Congress : should draw up necessary legis: lation" to prevent the Treasury's action. "Now the (Johnson) administration has seen fit to try to bypass Congress on the thing and this is the problem," he said. "This sort of takes It out of the • hands of Mr. Mills and Con' gross." State Rep. Talbot Feild of Hope suggested Monday that the second special session of the legislature this spring attempt to find new methods of financing industrial development. A resolution proposing hear* ings on the matter was filed by Feilds with the Arkansas Legislative Council. Felld said the hearings would produce information "concerning the feasibility of security methods of conventional or other types of industrial ing."

The biggest advantage of a vest fs that It gives a fat man a place to put his cigar ashes. One of the first signs of middle age }s that you never buy anything without first complain' ing gbout the price. All children go through aperi- ocj of life when they are secretly a bit ashamed of their parents. And. when they finally clo get around, to telling you how much they appreciate you, they're generally just buttering you up so yoy'Jl act as % free baby sitter for them. A man who has been poor all his life never feels quite as poverty stricken as a guy who has been living jt up on a lush expense account that is su44enly taken away from him.
