(AP) —\ Hundred*; of Arkansas couples who learned in April that they may not be legally married under state law, may be legally married after all. The qunndry over what the law says, what the Arkansas Supreme Court says it stiys, and what the Social Security Administration says It says was slightly clarified by a statement Wednesday from the Arkansas attorney general. James C. Hale, former slate representative who authored the now-controversial law, disclaimed any designs to stir controversy when he wrote the bill. Many Arkansans have re-married in private ceremonies, Iwo mass weddings arc planned for this weekend, and many other couples simply waited—some angrily. The law, Act 32, of 1MI, reads' in part: "Every male who shall have arrived at the full age of 18 years, and every female who shall have arrived at the lull age of 10 years, shall be capable in law of contracting marriage; if under those ages,' the marriages shall be absolutely ,void." The administration said il would not pay benefits to wlvos oi 1 widows who ware not legally married, ft cited the"1941 law and suijd.muny Arkansans who Iliuught they were married ivall.y weren't Ally. Gen. Bruce Bennett said Wednesday _ that a marriage in which one; or both parties worn under the legal ago would not b« absolutely Void, as the law slates, but coiild be annulled upon petition by one of the parents in court. Jerry Patterson, Bennett's as sistant, said the marriage is legal until one of the marriage partners goes into court and gets it declared void. Both Bennett and Patterson cited a 1944 rilling by the Arkansas Supreme Court in which the court ruled that such a marriage is not a nullity, but is void only from the time it Is so declared by a court of competent jurisdiction." Patrick Heberl, regional attorney for the administration, said in Dallas, Tex., that he had con- ferred with Bennett and was reviewing the question to determine what the administration's policy will be.
