The suit grew out of the Arkansas Highway Audit Cornmis- · sion's .recent public . hearings. Testimony was given that B total of -$2,961' collected by Monroe County resident? for improvement of the Indian Bay Road wound up In the campaign fund of Governor ' McMath after the state had improved the road. . A t t o r n e y General Ike .Murry sued Henry Woods, Governor Mc- « Math's eexcutive secretary and campaign manager, and Highway Commissioner .Charlie Adams of Hughes, who received the money. The trial date was fixed at a pre-trial conference befor Pulaski Circuit Judge Guy Arnsler.- At the conference, P. P. George and W. C. Story, Monroe County residents, were eliminated as par- · ties .to the lawsuit on their own motion. Attorneys for Wood and Adams had asked that George and Story , be-included for a proper determination of the case hut agreed today that they were not needed on the pair's own statement that they claimed no interest in the money; ' George and Story had collected , the money for the road improvements. Judge Amsler termed the case an unusual one. He said that usually when funds are paid into · a court--as Adams has done In this instance --" it is "without Brings." Here, however, the defendants are claiming that the ..«tate;is.-not. Entitled .-tb'the. money, M Murry has alleged : Amsler. suggested that the only issue actually' in the 'case is whether the state treasury is entitled to. the..monpy. or whether it belongs, to- Adams."
