AIM Seeks lob of REP. FEILD HOPE, Ark. (AP) - On a January day in 1941, a young lawyer from Hope took his seat in the Arkansas General Assembly as state representative from Hempstead County. Six governors, a world war, the space race and countless thousands of bills later, 55-year- old Rep. Talbot Feild Jr. of Hope is still holding forth as one of the House leaders. Feild holds the distinction of being the only pre-World War n member of the House. Sen.Lee Bearden of Leachville is the only senator to serve prior to the war. Feild who took time out from his legislative career twice—to serve in World War II and later to run for prosecuting attorney — hopes to put a new feather in his cap if all goes well for him in this year's legislative elections. For the First time in his long career in the General Assembly he is a candidate for speaker of the House. The only other announced candidate is Rep. Hays McClerkin of Texarkana. By a quirk of coincidence the two sit side-by-side in the House chamber. Feild who is chairman of the powerful House Rules Committee said he had been persuaded by his colleagues to seek the House speakership. "It has been many years since Hempstead County has had a representative to serve as speaker of the House" he Tuesday, May 1, 1968 declared, "And I feel it would be an honor for my people if I could be elected to this position, So really it is the people running as much as it is me." Feild said he felt his chances are excellent at this stage. A similar statement has been made by McClerkin, The speaker will be elected formally on the opening day of the 1969 General Assembly. A native of Hope, Feild is a graduate of Hope High School and the University of Arkansas' School of Law. He has practiced law at Hope since graduating— except for the time he served as a naval aviator. He got his first taste of politics in 1938 when he ran fourth in the eight-man race for two legislative seats. He came back two years later and triumphed. In 1948 he was unsuccessful in his bid for prosecuting attorney, He was elected to the House in 1952 and has served continuously since the 1953 session. Feild has a total of 20 years in the House and is tied with three other members for seniority. Feild is one of the most active members of the Legislative Council, the off-season arm of the General Assembly. His most recent concern is the U. S. Treasury Department's decision to remove the tax- exempt status of industrial bonds issued by cities and counties. Feild said he — like most legislators — is seriously concerned over Arkansas financial plight. "It is my judgment that a determination should be made — and the expenditure of funds should be reduced proportionate to the budgetary reflections of an impending deficit," he said. "I know the people of my county do not want more taxes. I know they want us to curtail expenditures and have the cost of government stay within the income." He suggested that the Rockefeller administration might try some belt-tightening in order to stabilize the financial situation. House of Burgesses The first representative legislative body in America was the House 'of Burgesses. It met at Jamestown, then the capital of Virginia, on July 30, 1619. 'HOME FURNITURE CO.' A.
