Bowl* Knifr Star For Wtothcr Report See Column at Bottom of This Page MOW, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, JUNE 16, 1961 Cities Ask Gas rRate Increase Be Ruled Out •y JOHN R. STARR LITTLE ROCK (AP)—City Atty. James Spencer of El Dorado today asked the Arkansas Public Service Commission to disallow an Arkansas Louisiana Gas Co. rate increase on ground the firm has made no case for the raise. , Jhe PSC overruled Spencer's mo I'Sfn and continued the rate ca;|-. hearing until July 5, when protesting cities will present testimony against the rate boost. The cities moved to end the case after 15 minutes of cross- examining company witness Norman Clayton of Shrevcport today. "We find nothing in the record to support the company's contention that it is entitled to a rate i|prcase," Spencer said. "The company has not related its request to its overall rate of return." . Commission Chairman Lewis Robinson asked Spencer if the cities were resting their case and got a negative reply. The Commission then overruled the motion and ordered Spencer and City. Ally. George Holmes of Pine Bluff to get their case ready. Robinson reminded Spencer that SJfe commission has hired a rate expert, James Honaker of Frankfort, Ky., to assist the commission in reaching its decision in the case, "The company has made no case," Spencer said. "If a case is made, the commission will make it for them." On April l, while the current series of hearings was under way, jfcckla increased its minimum charge from $1.10 to $1.80 a month in 52 cities on its integrated system. The rate increase, which will yield an estimated $1.2 million a year, is linked with an Arkla proposal to pay about $82,000 a year more in city franchise taxes. The commission, in addition lo setting the July 5 date for city testimony', set July 3 for prescn- (gjtion of Arkla rebuttal testimony and testimony by Honaker. Robinson said Spencer would get a chance to cross-examine Uonakcr on July 13. On July 5. the cities arc expected to present testimony by Alexander E. Wiskup, a Washington, D.C., rate expert they have hired. Both Wiskup and Honaker attended today's session, but did not .J^kc an active part. ^Cross-examination of Clayton, t head of Arkla's rate and regulation department, was principally a review of testimony and cross- examination at three previous hearings.

Young can gel a court order to have the county pay the salary of his son as a temporary deputy sheriff. County Judge Arch Campbell has refused to authorize payment of L. C. Young Jr. though the attorney general's office held that Young could hire his son. Campbell says the law cited by the attorney general's office has been repealed. Sheriff Young plans to file a court suit to get payment, but beginning today he'll pay his son with a personal check. The sheriff presumably would be reimbursed if a court upholds his right to hire the son. If a court holds with Campbell's contention, the sheriff apparently would be out the money. Three local men petitioned Circuit Court for an order making the Hcmpstcacl County Citizens Committee for Better Government a permanent, benevolent, nonprofit corporation. The men arc B. W. Edwards, president of the organization; Talbot Fcild, JJr., vice-president, and James!!. Pilkinton, secretary- treasurer. They will serve as temporary officers until members elect permanent ones. Object of the association is solely to aid and obtain better county government in Hcmpsteacl and encourage citizens of the highest type to seek and hold public offices, the petition said. It also opened membership to anyone interested in better government, and pledged the association to never directly engage in any political activity or to promote the candidacy of any individual and direct its attention solely to aiding and encouraging efficiency and honesty in county government, without regard to any particular office. The petition set up bylaws for the corporation and promised that any funds solicited will be used only fro the promotion of better county government. The citizens committee originated earlier this year. B, W. Edwards has filed three suits against former Judge U. G. Garrett, charging illegal disposal of county property. A fourth suit was filed by Monroe Kent also calling for the return of certain county properly disposed of illegally. A Hcmpstcad County Grand Grand Jury has investigated some 30 witnesses in connection with activities of all county offices as well as other county matters.

West States Count Big Weather Loss By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Western slates counted a heavy toll Friday from weather extremes that ranged from oppressive heat, in the Far West, to rain in New Mexico and flash flooding in some parts of Texas. At least seven deaths were recorded in California from heat prostration Thursday and an eighth person died as a result, of sweltering temperatures in Oregon. Poultry and crop losses in California were expected to exceed $1 million. The weather was regarded as a contributing factor in 17 drowning—most of them in the Pacific Northwest and 111 e Mountain States. A troublesome fire broke out during Southern California's heat wave. The flames fed on rain-shy brush in the San Gabriel Canyon 25 miles east of Los Angeles and were pushed by hot, turbulent winds. At last report, it had covered l,liOO acres. Another fire—in Mini Canyon to the north of Los. Angeles—was contained Thursday after burning 5,000 acres. Rain came to the aid of New Mexico fire crews ending a stubborn, COO-acre blaze in high country east of Tierra Amarilla. Temperatures Thursday included 103 degrees at Portland, 84 in San Francisco, f)3 in Los Angeles and 122 at Palm Desert, Calif, inland California cities almost all hit 100-plus. in contrast to (he hot blasts in the western sections, unseasonably cool weather continued in most of the oaslcrri two-thirds of the nation.

(AIM - A Senate Gives Approval to Highway Bill By JOE MALL WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate has passed the rmilli-bil- lion-dollar highway financing bill after adding an extension of the billboard control bonus plan. Th e measure gives President Kennedy the major share of the revenues he asked for the interstate roads system. The Senate gave its voice vote approval Thursday night, after a nine-hour session. The measure now goes back to the House which has passed Its own version. One major difference between the Senate and House bills: A Senate amendment to continue for two years incentive payments to states to regulate billboards. The bill is a landmark. This is the first lime since the 41,000- mile interstate system of expressways was set up in I'jfifi that financing is provided to cover the entire federal share of the cost. The federal government picks up 90 per cent of the tab. Of the system's estimated cost of $4' billion, Washington pays almost $37 billion. Advocates of continuing the billboard control bonus plan say they have hopes Ihe House will accept it. Rep. George II. Fallon, D-Md., chairman of the House Public Roads subcommittee, said he was prepared to do so. The billboard extension proposal was adopted on a voice vole in the Senate after its supporters beat down, r>5 to .'«!, an attempt to limit it to one year. The bill increases the apportionments of federal funds to Ihe .-v,,. ,...!, twok ui uni injuu i.iauu, states for the interstate system Ro/./ell responded, cannot be paid by $'1.50 billion over the next II years, and provides the extra rev- The apportionments will bo stepped up .starting with the one for fiscal IHG3, scheduled to be > > vsi II inj-,1 |\*L IM A^JOi --»« » iuv.ui t t!MiJ t DV.IIUIHIIUH tU llii Whaley and Joshua Shepherd "jade ncxl month.

Marine Strike Threatens the Entire Nation NFAV FOHK fAPi-A mnrillmo strike spread from port to port I winy and threatened to paralyse most of (hi! mil Inn's 9nO-ship nioreliiml marine unless scltlc- tnenl is quickly reached. More than 110,000 officers nml unlicensed crewmen sailing out of East, West Mini Gulf Coast ports were nffecled. Secretnry of Labor Arlluir J. Goldberg, who was -soul, here Thursday by President Kennedy, planned ne wcfforls today to set- tin Ihe contract, dispute between .shipping companies mid the seven .striking unions. The 70,000 unionists on strike include deck officers, engineer officers, r«dio officers, unlicensed deck mid engine room crewmen find .steward department workers. Members of the .striking unions man the bulk of the passenger .ships, tankers, dry cargo ships iiiul olhcr seagoing craft flying the American flag. Their no-contrncl-no-work strike begun last midnight when contracts expired. Picket lines were wot up at piers in the viist. Port of New Fork and in some other ports. No American-flag luxury liner was docked in New York when the .strike begun. A number of .seagoing unions with mi estimated 10,000 members wore not on' st rike because their contract. 1 -: have not expired. Ships ;il. sen will not be affected until they rcneh American ports. Joseph Cumin, president of the big National Maritime Union, said support of the strike has been pledged by the International Longshoremen's Association, Hie Teamsters Union, union oil workers and central labor councils in 30 ports. A major issue in the dispute is the union demand for a right to orgniii'/.e mid represent the crows of American-owned ships that fly so-called "flags of convent* ence." Most, of these 450 ships are tankers registered under the flags of Liberia, Panama and Honduras. The unions call them "runaway .ships," with lower pay and in« ferior working conditions compared to American-flag ships with union crews. The striking unions are: National M u r i t'i m e Union, which claims ,'i7,000 members, has ;in estimated 22,000 of them actively employed. Seafarers International Union, which claims 70,000 members, with 2:3,000 working. Masters, Mates and Pilots (deck officers)—12,000. Marine Engineers Itenefleial Association (officers)—11,000. American Radio Association (officers)—1,000. Radio Officers Union—500. Staff Officers Union (pursers) —500. The National Maritime Union and the Seafarers International Union are composed of deck uhd engine room crewmen, steward department workers and other unlicensed personnel. The largest, employer group,ill the negotiations is the American Merchant Marine Institute, which claims to represent 23 companies with 33'J ships.

Alford Has His Own School Bill WASHINGTON (AP)—Rep. Dale Alford, D-Ark., has introduced an aid to education bill which he said lacks f e d oral controls over schools included in administration proposals. The Senate has passed the ad? ministration school bill and it now is pending in the House. His bill, Alford said, "would di» reel the U.S. Treasury lo send U check directly to the commission' er of education in each state tq be used either for classroom con« slruclion or teacher salaries, or both." Thus, he said it would "remove all controls by a federal bureai| and would insure thai the state^ w o u I d' retain control pvej' education."
