The Garcia Vaiseca Newspapers As the Best in the World LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The AfkanSis Supreme Court has been asked by several Little River County farm families to reverse a court decision under which a water district took tracts of their land to build a canal for the new $45-mtilion Nekoosa-Edwards Paper Co. at Ashdown, ' If the farmers are successful in their appeal, it could postpone the opening of the plant, which is scheduled for March 29. The Southwest Arkansas Water District formed by a 1957 act had a seven-mile strip of land between Nekoosa-Edwards and Millwood Reservoir condemned so that a canal could be dug to provide water to the company. The act gave the water district the power of eminent domain, but Eugene B. Hale Jr. of Little Rock, attorney for the 19 landowners, told the high court Monday that the plant March should have negotiated with the farmers on a private basis to buy the strip of land. Hale said In his brief that the water district could condemn land only If It could prove that it was for "public use."

But the very attempts to end the balance-of-payments deficits has caused some of the uncertainty and fears the new programs will fall perhaps force a change In gold policy by the United States. U.S. officials call absurd the belief that the price of gold might be changed. A key element In the administration's program to plug the gold drain is the proposed 10 per, cent surcharge on Individual and corporate income taxes. The extra revenues would allow paring of the U.S. budget deficit. Congress has thus far refused to enact it. Also pending before Congress is an administration bid to lift the 25 per cent gold cover off U.S. currency, a move that would free gold now committed James H.

The drain from the heavy speculative buying which has hit Europe in waves since British devaluation of the pound far outshadows In intensity even the heavy French purchases of several years ago. U.S. officials, who have repeatedly voiced their Insistence that the administration will continue to honor its commitment to buy and sell gold at $35 an ounce, foresee further shock waves until the international money system is reformed.

The enemy sprayed the.4th Infantry Division convoy with bazooka-type rockets and heavy automatic weapons fire and Inflicted "moderate" damage on the vehicles, a command spokesman said. This indicated as many as a third of the trucks might have been damaged or destroyed.
