Each team goes into the encounter with a perfect district record of six victories. El Dorado's slate for the season is marred only by a tie with Haynesvlle, La., while the powerful Tigers are undefeated and untied. 'Little Rock, which hasn't been pressed and has scored at least 32 points in each game, reigns as a two or three-touchdown jiavorite to keep its nose clean. The scrap may develop into a duel between El Dorado's ace , back, Ray Parks, the district's ' scoring leader, and the Tigers'' well-balanced backiield including such standouts as All-State Jimmy Albright, Louie Schauffle, Clyde Horton and Gene Hall. The largest crowd ever to see a high school or any rlootball game in. Arkansas — somewhere in.the neighborhood of 14,000 — is antl cipated for the tussle. Were it not for the Little Rock El Dorado extravaganza, the set to tonight (Thurs) • between Catho lie High of Little Rocke and Bau xite in District Eight might create quite a stir. The rockets are the 1/istrict pace-setters, while Bau xite. with only one defeat, still :• in the running going into this one. "In another important game, Marianna, wmch took over lirst place in District Five on a forfeit :.'rom Brinkley last week, gets a tough assignment at Forrest City.

If he agrees, the work can go forward immediately. , A test of whether this method will get around the White House economy stymie already is shaping up. It involves an offer by Cincinnati to advance the government up to $750,000 to finish the last unit in a $8,000,000 flood control project on the Ohio river, known as the Mill Creek dam. There is no federal money available for the work, even under \nc $35,000,000 ceiling boost last week which fixed a new $130.000.000 top for spending on flood control works I this fiscal year. Officials said, however, that the Cincinnati -offer was sent by the army engneer chief to Secretary of War Patterson yesterday with a recommendation tnat it oe accepted. , . . War Department officials said Patterson will ask the budget bureau for a ruling on whether he can accept the Cincinnati offer, indicating he is disposed to do so if I he gets a "yes' answer. Explanation of Initiated Act Number One (Second of three articles) Initiated Act No. 1, the school reorganization net which will be voted upon in the general election Nov. 5, will not in itself abolish any schools. I The Arkansas Education Association has made this plain in answering questions about the proposed act, which will combine into one district within each county all of the present school districts which nave less than J50 enumerates. This school district so formed Shawnee non-district. West Memphis at Earlc. District Four Greenwood at Booneville. Mansfield at Waldron. Dardanelle at Havana. Conway at Atkins. Paris at Morrilton.

England at Wynne (non-district) Gillett at Watson Chapel. District Six Dumas at Crossett . Eudora at Monticello. Portland at Dermott. Lake Village at Warren. District Seven De Queen at Nashville.

If in the opinion of the county board the school needs ot the children ii any portion of the :iewly-crcatct :ounty district can best be scrvec by annexing that territory to an existing district ,it may do so will the consent of that district. If any territory should be an icxed 10 a dstrict in anothe county, the question shall be sub The act makes It clear that any district to which territory is an- ncXcd shall lake over such property and other assets ot the district from which the territory wns taken, nnd such existing contracts nd debts as may be assigned oy ic agency making the annexation. The part to be assigned io the istrlct shall be determined by the atio that the then assessed valua- ion in that part of the territory so aken is to the assessed valuation n the entire district from which he territory was taken," Uic act ays. "Th" abolition of continuance of any school is left ;Cor the elected joard of -the people to decide," he AEA explains. "H is education- illy sound to educate the child a near to his home as -possible. "The important dificrcnce wil be'that,*if the act passes, the smal school will operate as a part of the larger district, and as such will have better supervision, bet tcr equipment and better trained teachers. "Under this plan, when the stu dent goes to junior high or scnio high, the work he nas done na been so coordinated thai'he car , milled to the state Board of Educa take his place children." along with olhc The act docs not endanger local control of the schools, it is pointed out — "it merely broadens die base of local control "to include an rea sufficiently large lo satisfy lie educational needs ot ihe cmi- ren It places the educational wel- are ot the children first, then sets ip a pattern ot local control com- jrehensive enough vo accompllsn his purpose." As for transportation, the state las already established a program inder which it will pay the cost of transportation wherever a child ives more than two miles :.rom | school. In isolated areas, local; schools will be maintained and expanded to satisfy the needs. Several educators navo expressed the opinion that any •hange in transportation costs will be more than equalled by savings made possible by a sensible reorganization. An explanation of how the net will work if it is passed has been offered by the AEA, which explains thai, in me rural scnool districts created by ttic act, these three situations mght preval. 1 The district might have no high school within its boundaries. 2. The district might have one or more high schools which would be proved nigh schools. 3. The district might have one or more high schools when would oc accredited or approved. . One of the following procedures could be employed by the county board: 1.

Where no high school facil- tics nrc available within the districts or where such facilities arc too distant for pupils to attend, the territory not having such facilities could be annexed to a district which could serve the territory, or a high school center could be developed In the district with the enlarged area and enrollment, "The ideal to be reached in this connection." says the AEA, "would be for the reorganization of administrative areas lo be carefully planned ;md effected so that every child would live in a district )argc cno.ugh to provide an accredited high school on an economical bass.

Today, tree- planting projects arc underway in many of those same cities. templted cancellation of projects, but merely deferment of federal expenditures until after this nscal year ends next June 30, so as to hold down the prospective deficit. If cities or states are willing to put up the money this year — and many of them accumulated surpluses while the federal govern mcnt was piling up. a huge debt in wartime — that will satisfy the "economy" angle of Mr. Truman s order .these officials said. They added, however, that the presidential order also had two other purposes: (1) to discourage competition for scarce labor and materials needed ?or housing and (2) to hold down inflationary tendencies. , Because of these aspects, the officials said the cases probably will go before Reconversion Director John R.
