Servants Win Righl To Picket Employer LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Servants can picket employers' homes even though it conflicts with the homeowner's traditional right lo privacy, an appellate court says in the case of an ambassador's mansion · where national leaders have been house guests. The decision Involved the Palm Springs mansion of Walter H. Annenberg, U.S. ambassador to Great Britain. Guests there have included President Nixon and Vice President Gerald R. ForJ. The three-judge stale appeals court said in its decision Monday that "when one accepts employment ... in a private home, he does not thereby become some kind of second-class working person." In all, 38 persons are employed on the 350-acre estate. The pickets resulted from a strike by 15 employes, all grecnskeepers for the private, 18 - hole championship g o l f course. The greenskeepers, who belong to AFL-CIO Laborer:; Union Local 1184, nad gone on strike four years ago seeking parity w i t h golf course tenders elsewhere. They said they received $2.50 an hour. $1.25 less than the rate for similar work at other courses.

John Saxton. the commis sion's director, suggested thn he governor's concurrence pro viso be included. He told reporters later that this phrase had not been necessary in the past because the commission knew how previous governors stood on projects jrbrjpsed by the Engineers. The resolution of assurance is required before the En^ii'cers can proceed with the project to niild a dam on the Strawbery River in Sharp County, Saxton aid. If Gov. Dale Bumpers does lot concur, him action would ilock the project, he said. The resolution does not com- nit funds, but says the com- lission feels that when the ,me comes the required ?5 mil- on for recreational aspects ould be raised frorm state and ocal sources. The commission is on record upporting the $43 million Bell 'oley Dam .vhich was author- zed by Congress 40 years ago. Drowning Victims WILLOW SPRINGS. Mo. AP) -- Authorities recovered he bodies of a Corning, Ark., ouple Tuesday in a submerged ar in Mill Stream. The victims were identified as Oliver Schmidt, 62, and his wife, Pearl, 65. The car was located in the stream near the point where it enters the Jacks Fork River in southern Missouri. The couple drowned Sunday when five around the corner, and present Indications are l h a t business and a lot of individual Americans are ^oing 'o w a l k snuick into it. The concussion could be shattering. Business has big capital spending plans on ils book, hoping to enlarge and belter equip its production facilities. Individuals, encouraged by renewed housebuilding, luve buy long-delayed may be able to go activity in plans to homes. Neither ahead with plans, however, because the money might not be there. And nobody needs to be told that n spending plan without money or credit is as impossible of accomplishment as filling a lacerated balloon with air. The demand on the money supply lias been growing for months, and not even historically high interest rates have been able to fact, the cost suppress of money t. In itself might be contributing to he sit- "aion. It goes like this: a company plans to increase its spending on plant and equipment by 13 per cent over 1973. which is in 'act the rate industry as a vhole has set as a goal.

Burns, chairman of he Federal Reserve Goird, vhich controls the money spi- Jot, has been growing increas- ngly disturbed ahout what he considers to be high'v in- lattonary demands for money. He has declared his intention of ·estraining ihat demand. Otherwise, it is the Fed's con- ention, individuals and business will spend to such a cle- ;ree that further inflationary itrains are placed upon the :conomy. Inflation must be lontrolled, Burns asserts, even hough it nains. Countering his position, some nvestors and businessmen ave hollered that monetary iolicy -'-- --. . . mu£h alone cannot accept so of the burden of restraint. They claim that lo limit the money supply could destroy business, wreck the housing market and bring about a stock market collapse. Burns this week stood firm. "We aren't going to sit back and prepare a monetary path to a continuation of rapid inflation, '' he said. "Let there be no mistaking our determination to do this." LITTLE ROCK (AP) - David H.

In the recent Interview, Pryor said he did not mean an in-depth Interview would be needed because of extensive ties to AMPI. but that he meant a discussion of any topic would require more time than he had available on March 16. "I probably should have explained that what I meant was that it would take a forum different from that we had in my den in that hastily set up news conference," Pryor said. "Perhaps it was a poor choice of words, if that's what I said." Pryor declined to discuss any aid he might or might not have received in his 1966 victory in Music Students Get Scholarships Roger Widder, chairman of :hc Department of Music at the University of Arkansas has mnounced that 14 more Arkansas high school seniors have received music scholarships as Jniversity freshmen next fall, Dahlgren Patrick, daughter of 3r. and Mrs, J.
