Mr, Feild issued the following statement: "At the present time your representative has pending In the legislative council the following studies: "1.

To determine if safety regulations governing television sets and antennas should be enacted into law by the general assembly; "5. To determine the effect upon hospitals and nursing homes in the state in the care of patients under medicare; "6. To determine the feasibility of establishing a public defender system whereby counsel may be furnished indigents involved in criminal prosecutions; "7. To review and determine adequacies of laws and procedures concerning submission of j'jsroofjtol^assisssnient of personal taxes as a condition for the issuance or renewal of motor vehicle license; "8.

To determine constitutional and statutory changes that may be required by the recent decision of the U. S. Supreme court extending the "one man - one vote" ruling to local units of government. "It Is my hope that from these studies, and the hearings held in connection therewith, meaningful legislation, if found necessary, may be forthcoming in the next regular session of the legislature. "Through your contacts with me, it is apparent that you do not desire an increase in taxes, but Instead a curtailment of expenditures so that our state government will operate within its income, "I pledge you that as your representative I will continue to represent you to the best of my ability and to utilize, in your behalf, the knowledge acquired and experience gained in the legislature through your continued support." , Mills Still Demanding Cutbacks CHICAGO (AP) - Hep. W«. bur P. Mills, D-Ark., reiterated Tuesday his demand that any Income (ax hike be accompanied by a cutback in funds now authorized for future govern* ment spending and not just for the coming year, "It \s not enough to simply postpone expenditures in a giv* en year."

Beirne, While there have been no formal wage negotiations since the strike began in some 40 states, Beirne said Tuesday informal talks with the Bell Telephone System were continuing.

Other Bell System workers average $2.79 per hour. In addition to the installers in most states, another 140,000 Bell operators, linemen, repairmen, clerks and other employes are on strike in 15 states where Bell contracts have also expired.

Pfjfttftd (9 unlit No Comment on Loss of Costly Plane tjy LEWIS M, SIMONS Associated Press Writer SAIGON (AP) - No Fills flew against North Vietnam Tuesday, but a U.S. military spokesman In Saigon implied to* ttigftt that the $6*milllon, swing* wing fighter-bomber has not been grounded again after its third crash in a month. "There has been no change In the status of the Fill," said the spokesman after a day of rumors and inquiries. He would not elaborate.

Normally reports on the days air operations would not be given until Thursday. The third Fill lost on Vietnam duty disappeared Monday night, and North Vietnam claimed today its forces had shot down the plane over Quang Blnh, the province just north of the demilitarized zone.

Its crash was attributed to a capsule of sealing material, mistakenly left by mechanics, that became lodged in the flight controls. The two crew members bailed out and were rescued. Six Fills arrived at Ta Khli air base In Thailand March 17 and went Into combat March 25. They were grounded for 11 days after the crash March 30 and have flown combat missions on about 17 days in all. Two additional Fills were brought in to replace the first two losses.

Rockefeller indicated without being specific that the change of heart over the tax question resulted from the need of an additional $1.75 million to operate the state penitentiary system. Definitely in the revenue picture, the governor said, was a bill to allow the state to collect the stamp tax on real estate transfers, a measure that would provide an estimated $500,000 annually. The same proposal was defeated in the February special session. Rockefeller also said he would "entertain" the idea of including a mixed drink proposal in the special session call if the bill were as good as one introduced in the 1967 regular session. An Association of private club managers says it is drafting such a measure but Rockefeller said he hadn't seen it yet. SAVE IN OUR ANNUAL SPRING . . . LINGERIE SALE HECOMPlETE VARIETY ENDS May 4th.
