Faulkner reported to ew Zealanders today that an nvestigation into allegations- lat New Zealand soldiers illed six American GIs in Viet- am was dragging because of a ack of information. . In Saigon, the chief spokes- lan of the South Vietnam goy- rnmcnl, Bui Bao True, said he anonymous allegation, and similar one by a man who aid he served in Vietnam with he Royal Australian Army, vere "an ill-intentioned joke." "We have got no further with the investigation) be- :aiise we do not know where to jegiri."

The petitioners, according to Zealanders who Vietnam are on MRS. EDNA HERRELL Springdale -- Mrs. Edna Herrell. 85, of Route 6. Fayctt viJle, died this morning in th Springdale hospital. Born Oc 31, 1888 in Henderson County, Tex., the daughter of John W. and Mary Frances' Guest, she was a Baptist. Survivors are two daughters, Mrs. Carl Richards of Springdale and Mrs. Walter Hagar of Fayetteville; two sisters, Mrs. Katie Lawrence of V e n t u r a , Calif, and Mrs. Mary E s t i I I of Springdale; five grandchildren: 21 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.

The minister said the government had conducted "the fullest possible inquiry on the facts available to us" for two days. The controversy began after a man called an Auckland radio talk show and said he and .hree other soldiers came upon six Americans more than two years ago as they used truncheons to beat 10 South Vietnamese peasants under interrogation. The New Zealanders killed one of the Americans in an exchange of gunfire, the caller said, then they slaughtered the others to cover up the incident. Australian Sen. George Poyser said an Australian government investigation was started after a man telephoned a Melbourne television reporter with a similar story. Australian government- officials said they doubted the authenticity of the port. The U.S. Embassy in Saigon the brief, cited no statutory authority to allow the claim for s refund and the city is of Hie opin ion that such authority does not exist. The brief slates that "taxes illegally assessed and paid may always, be recovered if the collector .understands from the payer that the taxes are regarded as illegal and that suit will be in stituted to compel the refunding of them." The Washington County tax collector, Sarah Walker, testified previously lhat only about five persons have paid the tax under protesl since she has been collector. Water and Sewer Funds: The petitioners have said lhat water and sewer funds have been misused, the city allowing their use for such projects as the Industrial Park, the Hwy. 16 bypass and off-street parking. Their suit also contends that inadequate surplus reserves are maintained. Pointing out several court opin- Mrs. Carlson was permitted by Ihe court to testify over objection as to her conclusions concerning the maintenance of the required reserves under tho bond ordinances by the city. On cross-examination, her qualifications in the field of accounting and municipal government were attacked and substantially impeached. Further cross-exami nation revealed that Mrs. Carlson had no conception of the amoun of reserves requked by the bond ordinances." The city maintains, through a qualified accountant,'that the required reserves have been maintained. Water System Improvements: Tiie city's brief presents' several precedents to back its claim that expansion of both the inside and outside water and sewer systems are constitutional. In particular, the brief cites statutory authority on expansion of the cily's waler and sewer system into the growth area outside the city' limits by quoting that, "any municipality in the State of Arkansas owning and operating a municipal water- ions, the brief stales lhat "clearly, the use of surplus revenues for any lawful municipal purpose is permitted without regard to whether the disbursement is for water'and sewer related matters. Any permissible municipal purpose may qualify as a recipient of the funds." As regards the maintenance of reserve funds, the cily argues lhat "the only evidence adduced by petitioners concerning the establishment and maintenence ol the appropriale reserves was thai offered through the testimony ol Mrs. T. C. Carlson Jr., wife of the petitioner Carlson (and also a member of the Fayetleville Board of Directors).

(AP) -The first thing deputy Leroy Abreaii saw at the burning Lee farm house was a dog in flames. Inside seven persons were dead, including a mother clutching a baby. "It looked like a torch," Abreau said after spotting the ru ral frame house ablaze at 2:48 a.m. Thursday. It was the second fire at the Lee farm in seven months.

Lending of Credit: The brief states that there has been no showing of .any instance by the petitioners that the city has-lenl its credit within constitutional prohibitions. "Nor is there any proof that the city has become a shareholder in any institution, association, company or corporation. There las been no proof that the city las donated any municipal money or property for private use. "The only proof before the court reveals that the city has undertaken certain public purpose endeavors with public money, all for adequate consideration and all for the benefit of the public." City Records: "The petitioners allude to the record keeping of the'city and state," the brief said, "... (and) that the city should be enjoined to maintain such records in a manner that can be understood by the citizens.

"Unfortunately, the record keeping of the city cannot be of the same nature as that employed at a small country store. It must x geared to the requirements ol financial management of a city the size of Fayetteville; Ark." The brief states that the majority of testimony dealing with record keeping dealt primarily with the inability of T. C. Carlson Jr. to find detail supporting invoices behind payment vouchers.

In summarizing the subject, the city, brief pointed out that "the argument advanced by petitioners is. rhetoric only.
