Proclamation In many areas of the United States, respect for constituted authority and the principle of the supremacy of law arebelngheed- lessly challenged. The rights and freedoms which Americans accept as their birthright are made possible only by public acceptance of and obedience to the rule of law. In today's complex society there is a particular need for under standing on the part of every citizen that respect for law is vital to the preservation of individual liberties and a ree and orderly society. The Congress of the United States, and the President by official proclamation, have designated May 1 as Law Day USA, "a special day of celebration by the American people in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States of America; of their rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other as well as with other nations, and for the cultivation of that respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life." It is especially fitting, therefore, that this year we should as citizens reaffirm our faith in the rule of law and in the supremacy of government by law rather . than by men. The theme for this eleventh annual observance of Law Day USA carries a timely message: Only a Lawful Society Can Build A Better Society. It reminds us only through adherence to the processes of law and representative government can our community and nation achieve the goals we seek in social betterment and progress. NOW, THEREFORE, I, Donal Parker, Mayor of Hope, Arkansas, do hereby proclaim Wednesday, May 1, 1968, as Law Day USA in the City of Hope, and call upon all citizens, organizations, churches, and schools to recognize this special day through appropriate programs and ceremonies. Dated at the City of Hope, this 29th day of April, 1968.

Space projects and military research also could be cut back, he said. Senate and House conferees meanwhile were reported pushing slowly toward possible agreement on a bill that would boost income taxes $10 billion while reducing authority for long-range government spending by some $20 billion. At issue is a Senate-passed measure to impose the 10 per cent surcharge and cut spending $6 billion. The conferees reportedly are considering eliminating the surcharge plan in favor of revising tax rates upward. But sources indicated that if this were done the increased tax bite for individuals and corporations would remain about the same as HARRlSBtma, .... , _, Uoyd Long, about 3$, and his wife, Mrs. Eva Long, about 33, who lived near Harrlsburg, were shot and killed Saturday in what Poinsett County Sheriff Ray Holmes called a murder- suicide.
