J. W. Fulbright. The senator, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Wednesday he doubted he would support the request. "I voted against even the smaller ones for the last five or six years," Fulbright told a civic club meeting. "And I don't think I'm about to vote for $5 billion additional, not until we get our affairs in order...'' Later, in response to a question about the Mideast, Ful- · bright mentioned the aid re' quest again and said, "I said I would be opposed at this time. I really should reserve my statement because I don't know all the details. "But 1 think it would be premature to commit ourselves in . that fashion until and unless a real political settlement is brought about," the s e n a t o r said. In a prepared s t a t e m e n t He told newsmen that if aid 1 is to be distributed to Arab nations to induce them to make more oil available to the United States he would not favor "an understanding," but would ; want some agreement. Fulbright also mentioned his Democratic primary opponent, Gov. Dale Bumpers, and said that the state's healthy economic position did not come about just during Bumpers' hree years in office. "I want to make it clear that I'm running against Gov. Bumpers and I think he's running against me, regardless of what he says," said Fulbright. Bumpers has said he is running · "for the office," but not against Fulbright. "But he never mentions, as JBU Runner Sets New Mark Roger Vann of John Brown University recently established an Arkansas intercollegiate and overall record in the 26 mile, 385-yard marathon.

Old Bones Found OXFORD, Conn. (AP) -- A county coroner and a Yale University anthropologist will join diggers at a gravel bank today where two human skujls and other bones have been found, state police said.

"He rather ridicules the federal government as being an inefficient program and he recommends that we follow the stabilization plan that was put into this state in 1941 "It is a good objective and many of us have tried to keep our budget in better control, but I would like to say he didn't do all of this by himself," Fillbright said. "And this didn't happen in the last three years." FAlbright said Arkansas had progressed through a state-federal partnership. "I do not criticize the governor because he probably doesn't know about that," Fulbright said.

The election is the only poll that counts, he said. "I lliink it's very unfortunate hat a young man wit'i prom- se-- very lif.t'.e experience, but iromise--is going to bring his olitical fortunes to such a premature end," Fulbright said. OVER-ALL RECORD While voters have disagreed vith some of his actions, such is his criticism of U S! in- /olvment of the Vietnam war. believes his over-all record vill be viewed favorably. He is banking on that, plus eniprity, to hold the line igainst the Bumpers charisma. n fact, a list of "selected legis- ative activities" produced by Fulbright's staff totals 15 pages and covers more than 120 topes. Fulbright long has been a itrong supporter of education programs-- he once was president of the University of Ar- tansas -- and he has been equal- y dutiful in representing Eastern Arkansas farming interests. Rather than the emotional and controversial encounters vith presidents, these "bread and butter" issues are the main terns in his record, he said. "It isn't dramatic," he said. 'Not a word appears on televis- on and rarely anything in the ress. But these are the things think are important-- the continued support in a most non- lewsworthy manner of going to estify and supporting bills anging all through the econo- ny of this country." That he has been witling to (and alone on some issues is leyond dispute. He voted igainst an appropriation to fi- lance the "witch hunt" of Jose- ihy McCarthy. He consistently ipposed federal funding of the lupersonic Tranport, along vith only one other senator. He nettled Presidents Johnson anc Nixon with criticism of U.S. in- 'olvement in the Vietnam var.. In a -prepared statement. Fulbright later said Nixon should ask for a cut, not an increase, n foreign aid.
