To Ask Davis to Tell Home of Informer ¥ LITTLE ROCK (AP) - John u.

JW. C. Struebing, head of the iCriminal Investigation Division iof the State Police, to appear •Monday in Circuit Court. • Davis refused to name his in- jformant when questioned by the j Pulaski County Grand Jury JDec. 5 and spent 24 hours In Ithe county Jail. • Prosecutor Richard B. Adkis;son said Thursday he would ob- iject to the anticipated question jon the grounds that "the/ tfendants are not entitled 5to /name unless they can show'that lit is material to their defense." i The defense contends that the ;arrest warrants were defective {because they didn't name the •informant and that the defend| ants had a right to cross•examine the informant. ! "In my opinion, these defend- iants are entitled to know the •name of the alleged confidential ; informant if there was one be•cause he is in effect the ac• cuser in this matter," Purtle j said. "If the, alleged accuser Is jnot confronted and examined on ithe basis of his knowledge about i the case it would serve as a .'shield to allow anyone to make ja charge through a third party j and thereby escape cross-exam- •inatlon or facing the one he ac- icuses." PLANES (from page one) Chinese border, The debut of the Commtmlsfs' 37mm antiaircraft gun around Khe Sanh was termed serious by one U.S. officer who said: "It's a very good weapon. We want to get them out as soon as we spot them." Field reports say seVefi of the 37mm guns around Khe Sanh are believed to have been de» stroyed, and no planes have been lost to the new antiaircraft weapon yet. But the reports say the guns have opened fire ofl C130 cargo planes making sup' ply drops and on jet fighter* bombers escorting the cargo carriers. U.S. sources said the 37mm guns have an effective range of 8,000 to 10,000 feet add pack "a lot more punch" than the 50-eal< iber machine guns the North Vietnamese have been using against Khe Sanh's only supply route. With an effective range of about 4,500 feel, the machine guns and other automatic weapons have knocked down three Marine jet bombers, two cargo planes and several helicopters. One of the cargo planes carried 49 person.?; all were killed, The 37mm guns also are a threat to U.S. fighter-bombers that have been flying an average of 200 strikes a day against the estimated 20,000 North Vietnamese troops besieging Khe Sanh. ' ".•:< North Vietnamese forces broke the back of the French resistance at Dlen Bien Phu in 1954 after 37mm guns shot down plane after plane trying to parachute .supplies to that beleaguered fortress or bombing in support of the French garrison. The dally shelling of Khe Sanh continued on a reduced scale Thursday, with North Vietnamese gunners landing 110 rounds of artillery, rockets and mortars on the Marine base. But of possibly more significance was a 100-round barrage poured Into two U.S. artillery strongpoints that support Khe Sanh from the east, the Rock Pile and Camp Carroll. AP correspondent Edwin Q. White reported from Da Nang that the shelling was the heaviest at Camp Carroll in some time and could be the beginning of a harassment campaign against the tWo ; bases.

Winthorp Rockefeller and Jefferson County Prosecutor Joe Holmes copies of the State Police report: on an investigation of the unearthing it ot three ', human skeletons at" Cumrnitis'Prison Farm. The grave-diggings on Jan. 29 touched off international publicity about the state's prison system with some persons charging the skeletons were those of murdered inmates. A pathological report, however, Indicated that the three had not died violently. Maj. Bill Struebing of the Criminal Investigation Division led the investigation and at its start said he believed the skeletons had been removed from a pauper graveyard at the prison. Scott, who became director late last month, said he wrote the report himself because he "wanted to be personally informed of the scope and thoroughness of it." Scott said he had no intention of making the details In the report public and that if it was done, it would have to come from either the governor or Holmes. — Hope Star photo Left to right: Mrs. Ann Johnson, Mrs. Diane Johnson, Mrs. Linda Johnson and Mrs. Janice Rowe, all labaratory ray technicians. x Bill Cross, Administrator of Hempstead County Memorial Hospital, informed us recently that the hospital has purchased more new equipment in their continued effort to up-grade the hospital in all departments, thereby increasing patient care.

W. W. Ralphe, chief of the construction division of the Little Rock District of the Engineers, said the cofferdams' downstream from Little Roct are all high enough and strong* enough to withstand the high water that is expected to crest in the area over the weekend. It had teen feared that it might be necessary to Good cofferdam-protected work areas at the locks and.dams downstream from Little Rock to relieve the pressure from high water on the outside. Officials said Thursday, however, that this would not have to be done. The construction of Lock and Dam No, 4, two miles downstream from Pine Bluff, and Lock and Dam No. 5, north of the Pine Bluff arsenal, is crucial to the navigation timetable. No, 4 is not scheduled for completion until December and No, 5 Is to be completed In late November or early December, Prolonged inundation of the work area could delay completion past the target dates, Tourism in Arkansas Increasing LITTLE ROCK (AP)- Tow ism In Arkansas increased, 15 per cent during 1967 as com' pared to 1965, according to g report released Thursday by the state Publicity and.

Linda Johnson and Mrs. Janis Rowe, Laboratory and .X-ray Technicians. The equipment shown is an Eastman Kodak automatic processor known as the X-Omat. With this piece of equipment the radiologist or physician will be able to have a completely processed film within five minutes. Previously, to completely process a fllnV'U took. : approximately fifty-five minutes.' 'What does this mean to the patient, radiologist and hospital? It means that in terms of the patient, he benefits in the virtually immediate delivery of dry, ready-to-read films resulting in better care in that there is no more shuffling patients in and out of examining rooms, or waiting for film adequacy checks; and, because of immediate adequacy checks, there are no mo re patient call-backs. There is reduced time under anesthesia, no hall waiting and less time away from the patient's bed. This increased comfort to patients is particularly evident in serial examinations. The radiologist benefits since he has a completely processed film In less than five minutes. A correct diagnosis is much easier to make on a dry film than on a wet reading. This cuts down his and the physician's time In standing around waiting for the films to be processed. This means that more time can be used for the patient and more effective utilization of the X-ray facilities. He will have better control over the X-rays being done under his supervision. He will be able to give the physician his opinion of an X-ray within a matter of minutes whereas It was previously sometime a matter of days before the physician re. celved an opinion from the radiologist. In terms of the hospital, it means greater economy through greater staff efficiency, It also means the examining faculties that seem to shrink day by day under Increasing case loads, can do the job without further ex. pinslon, to some cases hospitals have reported that faster patient service through rapid film access has actually shortened, the patient's stay in the hospital, There is less chance for losingor mlsfttjnf JURIS, gfld (he x.ray room occupancy may be de» greased by as mw<?h as 25 per cent, which means fester and. pett te r service to the patient, The Beard, ol Governors mtborteed Mr f Cross to pu,r« Shase this piece of, equipment from Wnii Tt stover Company, Rock, Arkansas, The list Of the &0jna.t IRd the new of shadow free lights was gppro*iroiiely. $7,?QQ,oo f Two Killed In Car-Train Crash HEBER SPRING^, Ark.

Wll* bur .Mite, D'Afk., Thursday that they did not agree with a resolution adopted earlier in the week by about 80 businessmen. The resolutlefi called for cuts in programs except defense spending and projects under contract, Laman said the resolution does not reflect the opinions of the other residents of Pulaski County, "The majority of us are well pleased with your able and cab- able leadership and in North Little Rock we would not presume to question your ability to know what's the right thing to do nor your courage to do it/' Laman told Mills in a telegram. Laman said the curtailment of federal assisted programs would be "disastrous to our cities in Arkansas." Lloyd Rlnggold, president of the Labor Council, said the group had adopted a resolution urging Mills to support "essential domestic programs." "We believe top priority should be given to the programs that meet the needs of those who are less fortunate/' the council said in its resolution. "This is not the time to retreat, but this is the time to move forward with progressive programs. "Congressman Mills represents not just the Cadillac crowd but also is responsible to the majority of people in his district who are in the low and moderate Income brackets/' the resolution said.

By nUdmorning, up to 14 inches of snow was reported in the Memphis-West Memphis area and snow was falling at the rate of aft inch ah hour. The major snowfall appeared to be east of a line from Blytheville to Brinkley to Dumas to Warren to Arkansas City to Monroe, La.

Additional accumulations of four inches or more were expected today. Dumas was one of the hardest hit by the snow. The city reported 12 Inches on the ground, and the weight of the snow felled small trees and power lines. At least two carports and many aluminum awnings collapsed. Osceola reported 10 inches and minor damage to power lines was reported. Gould and Winchester (Drew County) had 10 inches on the ground this morning. Warren has eight, Blytheville four, Forrest City eight, Helena eight, DeWitt 5 and Arkansas C i t : y seven.
