Ford Draws Fire for Bond Stand LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Education Commissioner Arch Ford has drawn fire from four present or past officials of the Arkansas Education Association for soliciting teacher support for the proposed construction bond issue. The four teachers said it was not Ford's job to tell teachers how to vote, and one of them, "iss Maxinc Chapman of Fort nith, said he should apologize and resign. They echoed G. F. Castlebcrry of Newport, current AEA president, who had said that Ford had capitulated to political pressure in sending lottos to each stat ctcach- cr asking them to support the bonds. Miss Elizabeth Lee of Helena asked "How can M r.Ford have audacity to recommend thft ie teachers vote for a proposition that will take funds that would otherwise be available to teachers' salaries?" Miss Kay Shaddock of El Dorado said Ford was doing "only what he is told to do by members of the administration." "I have never known a commissioner lo try to tell teachers how to vole in the past," srtid Mrs. W'uth Jennings of Russellvillc.

Stay Granted on Court's Red Ruling WASHINGTON (AP) -Justice Frankfurter of the Supreme Court granted today a stay of effectiveness of the court's decision that he Communist party must rcgis- -cr as a tool of Moscow. The stay was granted after the ?arty filed a petition asking the high court to reconsider Us deci- ion, announced June 3, The court is now in summer adjournment. Its order to lower courts to make the ruling cffec- ive, was scheduled for issuance today. Frankfurter's stay defers it until the justices act on the petition for reconsideration. Thus the June 5 decision likely will remain ineffective until at least Oct. 9. Communist party officials declared after the June 5 decision that they did not plan to register with the Justice Department. Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy said proceedings against the party would be started Aug. 9. Frankfurter's stay also has the effect of deferring this Justice Department action. His deferment was opposed by the Justice Department. Frankfurter was the author of the June 5 decision, It upheld the constitutionality of he 1950 Subversive Acivities Control Act.

Says Public Helps Own Flood Losses HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (APz - A U.S. Engineers official said here Thursday that farmers and businessmen contribute to their own flood losses by overdeveloping the river valleys. Col. Arthur M. Jacoby, Lilllc Rock District Engineer, said the natural tendency is to overtesti- mate the protection afforded by flood control clams. He told the Arkansas-While-Rcd River Inter-agency committee that the flood plain is as much a part of the natural rivers as its bed and banks but that the average person tends (o overlook this. "Instead as tinio moves on," Jacoby said, "more and more industry locales on flood plains where (ransportatirfi is cheaper and large flat areas are available for plant construction," "The modern trend toward large economical housing development naturally seeks the same flat areas, ajiil Die farmer risks more in lowland plantings because the profits are so attractive in flat, diluvial deposits." The Inter-Agency Committee is -•omposeci of -state and federal of- icials from eight states interested n development of the Arkansas. Vhitc and Red Rivers.

Windsor, another mentioned l>y the governor among, those who "want foiTcbile desegregation," said at Little Rock that promoters of the Iwnd plan were trying to cover up an existing $20,31)5,000 surplus in the state treasury. Warren, whose name also was listed, said at Tcxarkana that passage of the bond issue would make i tax increase inevitable. James E. McDaniel of Jones- ioro, an attorney who slumped or Faubus during the governor's a s t gubernatorial campaign, came out aginst the bonds in a 'speech on Memphis television, "1 guarantee Ihat there will have to be an additional tax. to pay off the bonds," McDaniel said. He said that the bonds would be under political control of a board appointed by Faubus. The governor defended that board in his speech. He said the charge against the board "reflect, ed on the honesty and integrity of the board members." They in. eluded slate Treasurer J. Vance Clayton, Auditor Jimmic (Red) Jones, Comptroller L. A. Mas,li« burn, Bank Commissioner ,Diek Simpson, Faubus and Frank A, Sloruy, board secretary. Faubus said Roxzell and yther bond opponents including Puhiskt Rep. J. 11. Collrcll, had drafted and supported another bond ''program which was almost identical to Ilic governor's but which did not pass Die legislature. Faubus sajd his plan was preferable becauso the other made no provision to | safeguard the funds of stuto agencies. After combining his opposition inlo the single category, Faubus said, "You know now with whom you vole if you vote against this program." Faubus said Rozzell was trying to lead the people into the camp of the intearegalionists. Rozzell quick comment after Uic speech.
