Our Prescription Prices Are No Secret Faubus Claims No Scandals In Six Terms DEQUEEN T . Ark- (AP) -Former Gov. Orval E. Faubus s'airl here Saturday that at one tjmc lie was the most restigiited man in America, hut .no scandals were discovered 'during his administration, ' "If they had been discovered, ·you would have heard about, ^it," he said. ' No 'Walcrgates' marred his '·administration and none would ·-if he were re-elected governor, 'Faubus said. Faubus, the- former .six-term "governor. LS seeking the Democratic nomination for governor as are Lt. Gov. Bob C. Riley .and David H. Pryor. Faubus said the late Gov. .Winlhrop Rockefeller once said bis investigations had concluded that if Faubus made 'money during his 12 years as governor, the money came from friends, not public funds. Pryor contended Friday night (hat the Faubus a d m i n i s t r a t i o n had "reekert with scandal." He challenged Faubus to announce the "real" reason for his entry i n t o the gubernatorial race. The reason, Faubus said, "is to be of service to the people." ' He said he presumed Pryor was referring lo rumors ( h a t he was paiti to enter the race to have some effect on the U.S. Senate race. On another topic, Faubu.s sairt he saw no reason to object to s p e c i f y i n g K percentage of general revenues to he turned back to the cities and counties. City and county officials pushed through the legislature a bill providing seven per cent of the state's genera', revenues for cities and counties last year, but Bumpers vetoed the bill. Republicans Want Apology From Cooper LITTLE ROCK AP) -- Bob Sc-ott, chairman oT the Pulaski County Republican party, said Saturday t h a t Dr. Grant Cooper should apologize to Arfcnnsans for participating in the disruption of a tribute to the late Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller. Cooper, a self-styled Commu- n i s t , is an assistant history pro fessor at the 1 University of Ar- kansas--LiUlc Rock. Scott said the matter had not been discussed formally, but tie ^doubted that Republicans would Cry to prosecute Cooper or six .other persons who ran into the · t r i b u t e at Robinson Auditorium · Friday night. ' t They shouted. "We accuse /Nelson Rockefeller of murder.' ; The f o r n i f f r New Ynrk gover · nor was the main speaker a ;the ceremony honoring his lat · brother. The experimental materials and procedures in the ne\v basic cchniqucs are based on a new in tier standing of the rola- ion ships between linguistics ·md the reading-learning pro- ess." Dr. Greathouse said. The program was tested in grades 3, 4 and 5 in t h r o e Northwest A r k a n s a s school districts during October, November and December 1973, Dr. Greathouse saitt. Elementary schools in Fort S m i t h , Rogers and Fayellevilel cooperated in the project and testing w-js done by the San Diego Reading Altitude Inventory and the Gates-McGinitie Reading Tests. RESULTS Dr. Greathouse said the testing results were "tremendous and far above expectations." They revealed, he said, "that students involved in the reading project averaged more than a nine-month gain in the three-month period." Dr. Neal, who is educational director of the Tn-pFitient Day Care Treatment Program at the Child Study Ccnt?i, also is using the program successfully with emotionally disturbed children. i Test results also indicated, Dr. Greathouse said, that t h e program could be used with most basal readers; that each child worked at his own level in phonics, comprehension, oral reading and silent reading; that children were able to work up to their ability level quickly; that the students' attitudes oward reading improved; that livers iy of the program irovi rierl more m ot i va t io n to ' h i l d r e n ; that students were ible lo see their own progress. ind the program was conducted vilhoul teacher aides, films, ape recordings or records. "Two other important factors n the program are that only 0 minutes a day were spent n reading instructions and the program coMs per pupil were sept low," Dr. Greathouse said. Plans have lcen completed to conduct a similar program for ·emedial readers in bi g h ichools next fall. Also, a pro;ram for primary grades eing formed for the purpose T improving reading achievement in typical elementary classrooms, he said.
