McMath tfef ends .Highway Agency Alter Hearings. Governor's Story Brings Rebuttal By Tractor Dealer Little rtock-Wl-Governnr McMath Saturday took issue w i t h testimony in the Highway Audit Commission's first series of public hearings. The governor defended purchasing procedures of the Highway Department, and said that officials have acted in "absolute good faith" regarding purchases. Purchasing procedures were the chief topic in the three-day hoar- ins, which ended Friday. The Audit Commission was set up by the 1951 General Assembly to in- vestisate Highway Department operations from 1947 through 1951. The governor's statement was mild compared to his pre-hearing statements, including one that the investigation had "degenerated into a political witch hunt." He again contended that witnesses should be cross-examined by attorneys for the Highway Department, citing the testimony of J. A. Riggs, Jr., as an example. ' fiiggs, president of - the .T. A. Riggs Tractor Company. Little Rock, testified that since McMath took office the volume of his busi- ' ness with the state has declined considerably. McMath said cross-examination would have shown that Riggs' f i r m sold $233,661.66 worth of goods to the .ilatc during his first term as governor and did $310,- 1132.63 worth of business with the j state last year. But yesterday, Riggs *aid the governor had made "misleading ! statemfnts." Riggs said his com- ' pany liad done only S62.000 worth j of business with the state during I the entire three years of the governor's administration.

Alfrrcmcnt Signed W i t h i n the past four months, the presidents of six schools of forestry have signed an agreement crealinR a regional program in that field, one of the South's greatest wealths. Execution of the agreement over the cnmine years, said Ivey, may develop within the South the finest forestry education program anywhere--in the world. Under the agreement the six schools will plan together to supplement rind strengthen, rather than duplicate, what others arc doing.. W i t h i n ' t h e past six months, a program aimed at casing the critical need for nurses was start- and through contracts with defense agencies to throw the f u l l weight of the region's scientific resources inio this growing national problem. Such a c t i v i t y , Ivey asserted, "helps the nation and at t h e same time strengthens and n u t n r c s t h e scientific programs at institutions in the region." Of the 850 student places contracted for this current school year. f83 were for w h i t e students and 267 for Negroes. Of the total, 300 contracts were for training in medicine, 265 in veterinary medicine, 250 in dentistry and 35 in social work education.,The states are paying the institutions 51,181,750 for the educational services. Florida tops the states in monetary investment in the program. Florida,'s budget for '51 -'52 is $335,250. Except for 513.000 which goes for administrative service? and operation, the money buys t r a i n i n g that would cost millions of dollars and years of t i m e to duplicate through the establishment of schools at home. Numbfr of Contrasts The institutions providing regional service under contracts arc: A. it M. College of Texas, A l a b a m a Polytechnic Institute. A t l a n t a University. Duke University, Emory University, Florida State U n i v e r - sity, Louisiana State University. Loyola University. Medical College of Virginia, Meharry Medical College. Oklahoma A. and M.
