Jimmie H. Davis said today a televised answer to his recent report to the people was "little more than a fairy tale" containing deliberate inaccuracies. Davis issued a statement on a j speech by Rep. Joe Cooper. De- j Solo Parish, Tuesday night in [ which Cooper called the Davis administration "an endorsement, of I he bad and a deterrent of the good." Cooper spoke for IS lawmakers who disagreed with Davis' report on his administration and state; finances July 31. Davis said the television presentation was "little more than a fairy tale based upon circumstances and situations that simply do not exist. "Some of the information is out of date." he said, "most of it is misleading; the balance of it was invented."

"The statement also was made that during the firsl year of Ihis administration the increase among civil service workers was among the highest in recent history. This is false. "The average increase in civil service employment during the past eight, years has been four per cenl. The increase during lhe first year of this administration was less than that — 3.8 per cent.

In justifying his action in killing the Code of Ethics bill. Cooper said Davis called it "the most sinister piece of legislalion ever introduced." Cooper said every major Louisiana newspaper and many other groups, including the Association of Louisiana Chambers of Commerce and the stale AFL-C10, backed the bill. Turning lo the stale's fiscal situation, "the governor failed to mention lhe ten million dollar surplus left in the stale general fund by the previous administration and the 73 million dollar deficit he created." Cooper attacked passage of $200 million in bond issues, which he said would cost about $12 million in principal and interest payments each year. "This means that there will be 12 million dollars a year less in revenue available to finance the state's recurring operations," he added. "In the midst of this financial crisis," Cooper continued, "the governor had the audacity to begin construction of a million dollar mansion, which includes two bomb shelters and 18 bathrooms."
