Concern Over Bond of a Treasurer LITTLE ROCK (AP)—An ofti- ial of the slate Comptroller's office said today that some discussion had arisen concerning the bond of Ihe county treasurer in Sebastian County because of an j unusual situalion in salary acls lor the coiinly. However, Aubrey McCasland, head of Ihc county division of the Comptroller's office, said he Jid hot anticipate that there would be any difficulty in furnishing an official bond for Loyd Been, (he county's veteran treasurer, who starts on another term Jan. 1. McCaJsland said Ihe county aclually operates under salary schedules fixed by the Legislature, but thai there still is in existence an initiated salary act voted into effect by Sebastian Couny residents in the early 1930s. The legislalive- fixed salaries are much higher than those voted by the people in the depression era of the liOs. This situation might cause legal complications If there should be a Ian suit involving the bond of the treasurer, who»Js ^V" county's disbursing - officer-^ incl under its heaviest surety, McCasland said bonding companies thought the old law should be repealed and that he personally agreed. Ho said he expecled thai a pro/posed repeal would be introduced in Ihe 1939 Legislature. McCasland said a lew other smaller counties had similar situations but that there had ^een no discussion aboul these, The official said the Arkansas Supreme Court has ruled thai the Legislature may repeal an initiated county salary -act bul may not amend it. - Cost of Living Bounces Back to Peak Level WASHINGTON (AP) — Livint? costs In November bounced back to their peak level recorded last July. The government's Index rose two-tenths of 1 per cent between October and November lo 12:i.t) per cent of the ir>47--!9 base. This equals the prior living cost record in July and is about 2 per cent hlphcr than NovembcM- hut year. lEwan Claguo, Labor Department statistics commissioner, said today that greater sales ot HIM model cars at higher prices in November was the major factor in the .new living cost climb. Most other groups of goods and services advanced in price, but food and gasoline prices were lower. Tlie rise in living cosls will mean a onc-ecnt-an-hour pay increase for about one million wiirk- crs in the steel, aluminum and meal packing! industries. These workers have labor con- iracts providing for semiannual wage adjustments based on the government index. Another group of 80,000 workers in scattered industries. Including some municipal transportation systems, will receive varying increases under a quarterly adjustment. The Labor Department said thai In November new cars being sold to the public averaged. 0.4 per cant higher than in October. Tills rise reflected'October discounts on the sale of 1958 models and the November sale of 1059 models. New cars arc selling at 4.2 per cent higher ,prlces now than new cars sold in November I!)!j7, Claguc said the new living cost rise was .not much lo worry over. He said »he government index has actually been stable during tho past six to eight months, without rising or falling much In any single month. The government price expert also said Ihe present price situation is not one lo bother people from a standpoint ot inflationary danger,, Bittr he . said ifj,. is ^something to watch ,. .
