BJaylbck said Monday that his f|rst 51 weeks as state Welfare Commissioner had not been very satisfying. "I don't really feel any sense of achievement," Blaylock said, '.'other than to say I've tried ifiy best to be fair with the em- ployes, the welfare recipients and the taxpayers. v "The programs were already set up when I took over, the ijjoney was already approprlat- qd and all we could do was try tp-. carry out what the legislature provided for," Blaylock said. -; Blaylock, 50, said however, that he wanted to remain on the fob. 'Blaylock, also said that the job had changed his views somewhat. He said he was a pjretty stern conservative when he took the job that the position had moved him nearer a liberal view. ;,"You ..can't-work,,i^ this 'job, vflttfoiit getting a"feeling 'of deep' sympathy for welfare clients," he said. "These people have no lobby, especially the children, and you get to .feeling responsible for them, "I felt responsible to the taxpayer at first, but now I suppose I feel more responsible to the welfare recipient," he said. Hied Center Must Withhold Union Dues LITTLE ROCK (AP)- Chancellor John T. Jernigan has ruled that the University of Arkansas Medical Center must withhold union dues through payroll deductions for the members of the two unions which work at the Medical Center.

And they heard the Rev, Ralph Abernathy, King's close friend and successor, promise to return to Memphis with Mrs, King to help the garbage strikers whose plight had first drawn King to the city where he became the victim of an assassin. "It was a beautiful march," said a young lady Monday as she returned along streets strewn with posters reading "Honor Dr, King, End Racism." Police estimated 19,000 marchers. Eight abreast, hands often linked, the slow procession wound from the littered streets near Clayborn Temple, deep in the Negro slum area, past the smashed windows of Beale Street, testimony to the violent end of King's last march the week before, and into the modern, marble world of downtown Memphis. Little gasps went up on all sides as the widow, her pretty face framed by a black veil that fell over the shoulders of her simple black dress, joined the front of the march with three of her four children near the midway point. A portion of the 5,000 National Guardsmen quartered here guarded the march route, some in the turrets of M-48 tanks, the first time such vehicles have been used to keep the peace in Memphis. "How many men must die before we can really have a free and true and peaceful society? How long will it take?" asked Mrs. King from the speaker's/ platform at City Hall. "My husband was a loving man, a man who was complete-" ly dedicated to nonviolence," she'-said. "We want to carry oh" the best-we can in the traditions which we feel he would want,us ; to carry on. "We must carry on, because this is the way he would have ' wanted it." Negotiations over the seven- week-old garbage strike, where union recognition is a key factor, were recessed Tuesday to both sides to attend funeral ir ORANGE YELLOW PLATINUM GREEN WHITE BLACK PATENT RED CROSS SHOES Our citilied Red Cross Shoe is tailored for town, sophisticated for showing off after dark with that every special touch of fashion.

"Sonny" Walker, director of the Pulaski County Economic Opportunity Agency, said Monday that words would no longer be enough to prevent racial unrest in Arkansas. "We are not at a point where we will explode without giving us all an opportunity to work it out," Walker said at a news conference. "But I don't know how long this will be. "We cannot any longer make promises that we can't keep," he said. "Wo cannot any longer make promises mat we don't interri to keep. "Little Rock can be a tranquil, stable city," Walker said. "Pulaski County can be a Iran* qull, stable county and Arkansas can be a model for the nation." Walker said Arkansans should take a stand in favor of open housing and urged Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller to declare one week of April or early May as Job Opportunity Week. He said the problem of no recreational facilities in a neighborhood should be solved and that school facilities should be made available for job training program-.
