Faubus gucs irjlo a huddle with key members of Ibn Legislative Council Tuesday to talk about how the council will call signals on the special legislative session on finance. ' A weekend poll showed council members approve of Hie legislature's out-of-session arm taking over the emergency money pro- i blem. But they feel that the j council should put off working i with college needs and concern itself with reallocating money in the unconstitutional omnibus construction act. The council membcTS agreed that they should make a study of the $11.7 million surplus fund anil decide where the money can best j be spent. Pulaskj Rep. Glenn Walther has proposed a tour-point plan for meeting the state's building problems. This includes study of building needs, recommendations on how the legislature should spend the 11.5 million, creating revenues to the construction fund. and shuttling extra horse race rcvneues to the construction fund. lie also suggests u $:JO million construction bond issue if (he college and institutions can prove their need through contractors' estimates, blueprints, etc. He said the bond plan should include "all the safeguards the other one lacked." The Legislative Council may be called into session at the end of this month to begin getting ready recommendations on how the legislature should handle the building and finance problem. Faubus must call a special session, but he has not said when the session will be. The Arkansas Association for Retarded Children has called a meeting for Sunday to discuss the financial situation at the Arkansas Children's Colony, one of the institutions which would have gotten money from both the omnibus law and (he governor's defeated ifGO million bond issue.
