But he said challenger Walter Reuther must first agree to abide by tho verdict. Reuther, the United Auto Workers president who joined with Meany to found tlio 14-mi'I- lion-member labor federation 1.2 years ago, can have the special convention he demanded "if 'ho puts his gun away," Mea.ny said. Reuther, who for more tha.na year has been attacking the 72- year-old Meany 1 s leadership in the AFL-CIO presidency as "stagnant," "undemocrsitic" and "vegetating," called a meeting today of the Auto Workers Executive Board to cor isider the offer of a special convention. Meany said the AFl>C10's 29-man Executive Counc'11 unanimously agreed to the demand for a special conver ition if Reuther first promises to show up and accept any decisions of the convention. But he said the. council "unanimously rejects 'out olf hand the ultimatum" by Reutlvar that he will pull his 1.5 million Auto Workers out of the federation if he doesn't get the corwantion. Meany said this didn't mean Reuther would have to promise not to secede from 'met AFL-CIO in order to get a sp-acial convention. Reuther indicatf>d earlier he couldn't accept any preconditions to a special c jonv ention. "I pray that tine American labor movement can see the light," said the 6 0-yeur-old, red- haired Reuther. Reuther gave up the presidency of the Congr ess of Industrial Organizations 'in 19155 to nominate Meany, 'president of the American Fed'eratioin of Labor, as head of the mergod 128-union organization, Little Voters But School Plan By THfc ASSOCIATED PRESS While North Little Rock vot« ers elected a Negro to their school board Tuesday, Little Rock voters defeated a three* mill tax Increase proposal that was impart to implement a con* troversial school desegregation plan, John W, Smith, a North Lit* tie Rock contractor, outpolled incumbent Charles Stroud unof« ficially by some 300 voles, Little Rock voters soundly de* feated by a 2«I margin the mill- ag(?

Vietnamese Plan Army of Liberation SAIGON (AP) - The South Vietnamese government's chief spokesman said today that a volunteer "liberation army" is being formed to invade North Vietnam. U.S. officials expressed complete surprise at the report. The spokesman, Director General of Information Nguyen Ngoc Linh, said the invasion army would be made up of Vietnamese who are "sick and tired of those people who want to •liberate* South Vietnam." This was a reference to the Viet Cong, who call themselves the South Vietnamese Liberation Army. Vietnam Press, the government news agency, reported earlier today that authoritative sources had said a "high-ranking member of the vice president's office is forming a Oarch to the North Army." The vice president is Nguyen Cao Ky, the former commander of the air force who was premier for two years before he and President Nguyen Van Thieu were elected last fall. " Many military men. political figures and representatives of groups and religions have been contacted for support for the formation of the army," Vietnam Press said, "Moreover, several retired general officers, of high reputation and with best military records, are actively participating in the formation of the March to the North Army's command staff."

INSURE TO BE SURE ANDERSON-FRAZIER Insurance Agency, Inc. resolutions, did not Rusk's statement. But a separate move in the House to demand a greater congressional role in detefmln* ing war policy was reported gaining strength. Rep, Paul Findley, R»HI,, said one*fourth of the 438 House members have agreed to back a resolution calling for an immediate study of U.S, poltfiy in Asia and added: "It is now elear to me that there is a strong, substantial and bipartisan feeling in the House that no decision to com* mit large numbers of troops to Vietnam, nor any other fundamental decision on war policy, should be made until and unless there is serious consultation with and action by the Con* gross." Later, Rep. Edward P. 80- land, D-Mass,, told his colleagues that 16 House members are sponsoring a resolution saying U.S. troop levels In Vietnam should not be hiked "without the explicit consent of the Congress." Asked how Rusk's testimony had affected his opposition to war policy, Fulbrlght replied.' "It was confirmed— my worst fears." Arkansas Is Digging Out of the Snow Residents in Northwest Arkansas began digging themselves out today from the 14-inch snowfall that brought the area almost to a standstill Tuesday. Many schools in the area were still closed today, but the U.S. Weather Bureau at Little Rock offered some relief in its forecasts. Rising temperatures are forecast for the state through Saturday with a chance of showers developing by Friday night and Saturday. Traffic was able to move in the Sprlngdale-Fayetteville area this morning. ; Road graders have been scraping snow and ice from the streets since Tuesday afternoon. ; One lane of U, S. 71 was reported open this morning, but U. S. 62 east of Rogers remained blocked by snow drifts. The State Police said that at 7 a.m. today all the highways were covered with snow and Ice and that the conditions were "still pretty bad." Classes resumed this morning at the University of Arkansas after a day's suspension. The weight of the snow continued to take its toll by caving in roofs and awanings on stores in Springdale. The roof of the Anderson Box Co, at Springdale caved in this morning, setting off the sprinkler system and fire alarm. The intense 1 o w pressure storm center that brought the heavy snowfall to Northwest Arkansas is now centered over extreme East Pennsylvania and is moving rapidly northeastward, bringing heavy snow to the Eastern Great Lakes Region and most of Now England. Skies will remain clear .to partly cloudy over Arkansas through Thursday. It will be cold again tonight with frost and freezing temperatures like- •** community. VOTE INDICATES (From Page 1) their criticism of th'e President ..in an election year are likely to become bolder in speaking out against him. I/ McCarthy, little known in New Hampshire, could come close to beating the Pfesl« dent, they will feel that there is a strong wind against Johnson's ship on its present course. The squads of.youngsters who joined in rfriglng doorbells, passing out leaflets and doing all of the hard chores of campaigning for McCarthy indicated that there is a reservoir of support available for an antiwar candidate. Candidates who share McCarthy's dissent are likely to try to organize their own youth teams of volunteers, particular* ly if their opponents s u p p o r t Johnson's policies. Sen. Thomas J, Mclntyre, D* ;N.H., who joined Gov. John W. King in sponsoring the write-in for Johnson, insisted that the New Hampshire outcome was not a repudiation of the President's policies. But Mclntyre told a news conference Tuesday night that the result added up to a "frustrated vote over Vietnam." "The people of the State of New Hampshire are saying 'we don't understand, we wonder why we are not doing any better'," he said. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D- N.Y., who shares McCarthy's critical views of war policies, found in the outcome "A strong feeling about the war in Vietnam." In Fresno, Calif., Gov. Ronald Reagan said the Democratic vote indicates widespread dissatisfaction with Johnson. Nixon called the landslide vote he rolled up "the first referendum on Lyndon Johnson" and a "smashing victory" for his own campaign for the GOP presidential nomination. j Although Nixon said the results would force New York Gpy! Nelson A. Rockefeller to .'/get in or get'out-' of the f nomination contest, Rockefeller said tie did not regard the primary as significant because Nixon had no effective opponent on the ballot after Michigan Gov. George Romney withdrew. ly over most of the state. A new low pressure storm center now moving inland on the Pacific coast will bring an Increase in cloudiness to the state by Friday along with the probable showers. • High temperatures Tuesday ranged from 49 at Memphis to 33 at Harrison.

His accountant, John Barnard of Russellville, testified Tues< day that Hawkins had already produced evidence covering all but $5,900 of the total.
