Holt photo with Star camera British Party Spiff Over Racial Issue By FRED COLEMAN Associated Press Writer LONDON (AP) - Britain's Conservative party was badly split today following a clash between two of its leaders over the racial question. Edward Heath, the leader of the opposition party, fired outspoken rightwinger Enoch Powell from the party's shadow Cabinet, calling a speech by Powell Saturday "racialist in tone and liable to exacerbate racial tensions.'' Political writers considered Powell's speech a challenge to the more moderate Heath's leadership, forcing the party chief to take strong action or abdicate to the Tory right wing. Powell was the member of the shadow Cabinet for defense and would have taken command of that ministry if the Conservatives ousted the Labor government. Reginald Maudling, the deputy party leader, took over Powell's defense duties while ! ier for-com•• monwealth affairs. Other right-wing Tories denounced Powell's firing. One, John Jennings, called it "a tragedy." Powell's speech and the party split also gave the Laborites valuable ammunition for the House of Commons debate Tuesday on the Labor government's controversial race relations bill. The bill seeks to outlaw racial discrimination in housing, jobs and other fields. The Tories oppose it, claiming it will be unworkable. But they also say they oppose racial discrimination. Powell in his speech said Britain should bar further colored immigrants and pay those now here to return to their native lands. The speech was peppered with such volatile remarks as colored immigration Is "a match on gunpowder" and rivers of blood will eventually flow. Powell stuck by his speech, claiming it was in line with Conservative policy. He had no immediate comment on his dismissal. There are now about one million colored immigrants in Britain, about two per cent of the population, and racial tension has increased in recent years.

The eye-catching colored film illustrated the construction of roads and bridges in the interstate program and the parks and recreation facilities available in the state. Since "there is no end report, this factor in the highway program was also shown. Safety measures taken, the source and distribution of finances, and future needs of the highway department rounded out the filmed program. Of special interest to the local club were scenes of highway construction near Perrytown, Hope, Fulton and Magnolia with emphasis on the 1-30 section near Fulton. The program was arranged by Bob Mattox, who introduced the speaker. Visiting Rotarians were Congressman John Paul Hammerschmidt of Harrison and Washington, D.C., and Al Potts of Staunton, Va. Other^guests^were Roel Gast of Amsterdam, ''The Netherlands, and Cecil Bittle, Jr. of Houma, La., and all were welcomed by Club President Clyde Fouse. He announced that Col.

The convention was held as part of the attempt to qualify formor Alabama Gov. George Wallace as a presidential' candidate in Arkansas this November. It also will permit candidates to file for state and local offices under the American Party banner. Since there is nothing in Arkansas law to prevent one candidate from representing more than one party, it also means that Jim Johnson, the 1966 Democratic gubernatorial nominee, could seek the Democratic nomination again this year and run as a member of the American Party in November, Delegates to the convention were elected by Wallace for President Clubs. Jolmson was the principal architect of the party's constitution, rules and declaration of principles, all of which will be filed with Secretary of State Kelly Bryant.

Emmett Miller and other members of the Association said they were skeptical about the Class 6 permits authorized by the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board which would allow dispensing of mixed drinks In private clubs. Atty. Gen. Joe Purcell has been asked to rule whether the permit adopted by the ABC is legal. Miller said that a former Missouri legislator was working on the bill. Missouri has a open bar law on a local option basis. Miller also urged his group Printed by Offset to continue to fight for mixed drink legislation in Arkansas. He said Little Rock Police Chief R. E. Brians would raid any club that served mixed drinks regardless whether it had a Class 6 permit. "They want to take care of Hie country clubs, the big clubs and leave us out/' Miller said, "and we're not going to stand for it." Says: Cor Plunges Into River, Couple Killed CHEROKEE VILLAGE, Ark. (AP) — A Kansas couple, who had come to Cherokee Village to visit friends, drowned Saturday when their car plunged off a bridge into the South Fork River. Eyewitnesses were quoted as saying that Mrs. Harlan Deavers of Sabeth, Kan., drove the right side of the vehicle off the bridge into two-feet deep water and was carried downstream by the water. Mrs. Deavers' body was discovered Saturday about 250 yards from the bridge. Her husband's body was found Sunday morning about a half mile from the bridge. The car was found Sunday morning 50 yards from Mrs. Deavers' body. Both Deavers and his wife were about 75 years old.

Studied By ROBERT A, HUNT Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Government and private officials are wrestling with the problem of formulating a long-range financing plan for the fledgling Puzlic Broadcasting Corp. Congress authorized the corporation last year in an effort to boost federal support for noncommercial radio and television. Just barely off the ground, it won't be fully functional until the fiscal year beginning July 1. An immediate concern is extension of the $9 million authorized last year to create the corporation, which the Johnson administration wants continued through the coming fiscal period. The Senate already has approved this request for interim financing. The House is scheduled to take it up later this w»ek. But on the horizon rests the issue of finding a way to provide permanent federal funding for public broadcasting. When William D. Carey, assistant Budget Bureau director, appeared before a House Commerce subcommittee last moath be outlined three principal techniques which now appear to be available. They were: —A tax on television and radio sets manufactured—essentially the same proposal advanced by the Carnegie Commission, which orginally developed the concept of a public corporation. The public now spands an estimated $2 billion a year on TV sets. —A n<3W tax on gross revenues of commercial broadcasters, now totaling about $3 billion annually and rising. —Soma plan to make use of general tax revenues. The corporation, which will be run by a 15-member board of directors, is forbidden from operating a network of its own. However, it can subsidize programming and help educational stations form a network for specific programs using existing means of traasmlssion. President Johnson has directed the Budget Bureau, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and the Treasury to work with the corporation's board and congressional committees in coming up with a permanent plan. But Carey said a preference hasn't been found yet for any of the three avenues he outlined— or a combination of them. There also is a pending proposal by the Ford Foundation for a system of domestic com« munication satellites under which some amount of revenues would be made available to Improve public broadcasting programming. And a presidential task force is looking' into the broad field of telecom rnunlca* tions, including a review of use of domestic satellites. In Ids presentation, Carey did raise som? eyebrows by mentioning consultations with appropriate congressional units— an indication that tax questions could be directed to the tax- writing House Ways and Means Committee. But the House Commerce Committee wouldn't De expected to yield any of its jurisdictional domain over general authorizations in the communications field.
