The court ruled on an appeal by Robert E. Gray Sr. of Little Rock, who. filed a taxpayers s u i t contesting Uie constitutionality of the law. Gray wauied tlie Supreme Court to declare invalid sections of the law which Chancellor Darrell O. Hickman had upheld. Tiie state Printing Specifications Review Committee had filed a cross-appeal to overturn Hickman's ruling concerning those sections of the act which the chancellor had stricken. Gray contended in his appeal t h a t sections of the law approved by Jlickman were in conflict with Article 10. Section 15 of the state Constitution, which provides that printing shall be done for the slate on a contract basis. · The Supreme Court's unanimous opinion, written by Asso ciate Justice Conley Byrd. said the remainder of the law was compatible with the Constitution, but the court agreed with Hickman in striking sections 3, 6 (d) and portions of 8 and 13. Section 3 established definitions for printing and slatifm- ery. Subsection "((I)" of section 6 provided that printing and stationery then subject to contract but not subject to contrnc under terms of the n e w law would not be contracted in Hie future. Section 13 said state institutions of education and correction would uot be prohibited from bidding on printing contracts. In other cases, the c o u r t : --Ruled in a Crittcndcn County Circuit Court case t h a t a damage suit filed after the three-year statute of limitations could he litigated because the suit hart been filed, although in the wrong court, within the three-year period.

(TIMESphoto hv Floyd Carl Jr.) France Explodes First In Series 0171 Nuclear Tests CANBERRA, Australia (AP) -- France today set off the first explosion in its 1974 nuclear test series in the South Pacific, the Australian government -reported. The prime ministers of Australia and New Zealand protested. The French government refused comment. It never announces the individual tests but said earlier this month this year's series would be the last conducted in the atmosphere. The Australian government said a nuclear device was set off today over the Mururoa Atoll, the French test site about 1,000 miles southeast of Tahiti. Prime Minister Goirgh Whitlam of Australia said the new tests were of deep concern to his government because they would result in radioactive fallout on Australian territory. He said (he French statement that these would be the last atmospheric tests was a step in the right direction, but' that the French government has not given his government "any satisfactory commitment t h a t further atmospheric tests will not be held." New Zealand's Prime Minister Norman E. Kirk said he had told his ambassador Paris to file a strong protest. And Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau of Canada criticized nuclear explosions in the atmosphere, saying in a speech: "There is no need for any coun- Iry to develop a nuclear explosive competence." He apparent!} was referring also to India, which set off its first nuclear blast on May 13 A senior Australian official ;aid intelligence sources in- ormed the government of the onch blast and the report ind been double-checked.
