THURSDAY EVENING, MARCH 27, 1VS2 HHCI RVt CMT» Citizens Of Monroe County Galled By Pulaski Body 'Little. .Rock'-tff^The .Pulaski County Grand Jury, .apparently was looking into the Indian Bay Road case today. Among witnesses subpoenaed to appear at the Grand Jury's investigation of Arkansas ···' highway' operations were F. P. George of Clarenden, W..G; Storey of Man-ell and; Monroe County Judge Paul Daugherty. George and Storey testified at the. "recent Highway Audit Commission hearings that they raised nearly . $3,000 among Monroe . County citizens for improvement of tHe Indian Bay Hoad. But, they said; the money turned up in Governor McMath's campaign fund instead of the state treasury. Atty. Gen.. Ike Murry has filed suit to recover the nipney for the state. Defendants are Highway Commissioner Charlie Adams and Henry Woods, the governor's executive secretary and. campaign manager. The'suit is to be tried April 21.'.Ten witnesses appeared yesterday-at the opening session of the Grand Jury's closed-door probe resulting from recent findings of the.MAC. Fair Matters Considered Identity of some of the witnesses spurred 'speculation that at least four matters discussed by the HAC were under consideration by the jury. These included: 1. A transaction in which Ernest Freshour, Sweet Home . contractor, said he paid ''rental" fees- on trucks he never used to assure Jetting a road contract. '2. : The sale in 1950 of $195,000 worth of vehicles to the Highway Department by H.. T. Crawford without competitive' bids. 3. The stockpiling of crushed robk^in 1950 when two contractors --Fell Vaughan of Little,Rock and Gordon-McNulty of Pine Bluff-allegedly received 80 per, cent of the 3525,000 in ctotract jl'.VV '... .4.

Bridges Terms His Interest In Cose "Official" Washinglon-W)-Senator Styles Bridges (R-NH) testified today he took an interest in a seven · million dollar tax case against a Baltimore liquor dealer because he wanted to encourage -"quick »nd proper action" by the government. ' I n j the witness chair before House tax investigators. Bridges suggested that as a member of Congress he should be interested in.'seeing that the government secured a fair amount of tax and was also fair to the taxpayer. He has nothing but "official interest" in the matter he declared. . -- · y Eight Persons Burn To Death In Pennsylvania · Somerset, Pa.-(/P)-Eight persons --six of them children--burned to death today in a farmhouse at nearby Rockwood in southwestern Pennsylvania.

It' was decided to. adopt such a program at a meeting .of producers, hatcherymeh and feed dealers at the courthouse yesterday, and a committee.-was. appointed to seek ways to raise the necessary fund and to screen applicants for the position. The associate county aj,ent Will serve with County Agent Rose and one assistant county agent. It is planned to raise $2,100 the first year and .$2,400 the .second year to h e l p bay · tne associate agent. The Agricultural Extension Service will provide' funds for the remainder of the salary,' will furnish travel funds and secretarial .help. Office space will be provided in the .county agent's office at the courthouse.. Assistant Extension Service Director Kenneth Bates said today that for some time' interest in the employment of individuals trained for special services has been expressed in several portions of the state. Money already has been raised. in Benton County to provide an associate agent specializing In dairying, and a group of Eastern Arkansas. counties a r e paying all the salary of a specialist in livestock. In the Jones- boro area it is planned to employ a specialist on soils work. . The Extension Service has no particular person in mind for the job in Washington County, Bates said, but hopes to employ a man fully trained and with experience in the poultry industry. He will spend full time in this work, and will be directly under Agent Rose. The group named yesterday will take the- initiative in raising the necessary funds and serv as an advisory committee in selection of the'man foV the .job. R o e and District Agent Clifford'Alston will take part in discussion. Bates-said it would probably be three or four weeks before it is determined whether the money will be available and the program can be worked out. The committee is composed of Kirk Hale, chairman, Paul Martin, Dick Johnston, all ol Fayetteville, B. F. Moore of Lincoln, Delford Rieff of Prairie Grove, and. John Tyson of Springdale. Bates said that in Bentoi County the money is in hand and has been turned - over to the county treasurer. County Judge B i l l Enfield will release one-twelfth of the amount each month to pay the agent, and Bates said the same system of payment through regularly-elected county officials will be followed all over the state. Dial Phones To Be Put Into Operation Here In November/Latest Equipment Is Used By TED R. WYLIE * To the questions, when will the new telephone building be opened, when will Fayetteville have dial phones?--the answer is,.sometime about the middle of November And when this time com£s, ,no place in Arkansas, or in the whole country for that matter, should have better service, because the new building and equipment to be installed is trie latest available. In.a trip through the building at the'corner of. East and Spring streets yesterday^..! learned something of what t6 expect wheiv.the work is completed and the equipment is instilled and ready --far operation, plin Smiley, oft-Fort Smith, district plant superintendent; Thomas M. Liles,. wire chief; Gene Snipes, plant foreman* and Clyde Shibley, manager, took me through the new Southwestern Bel! Telephone setup. , · Perhaps the most interesting feature of the plant, at least the. most contemporary, will be operator toll dialing which will enable long distance calls to be made by dial. If, for instan'ce, you wish to call Fort Smith, you dial long distance and place your call. The operator here is able to dial the number you want in Fort Smith, Springfield, Mo., Joplin, or Little Rock without going through an operator in one of these cities. Eventually the system will be expanded to include similar service all over the country from Fayetteville, which will be first with this service, in Arkansas. - - · The dial equipment will be housed in a long room on the first floor. Filtered air will be pumped into this room, which is kept as free of dust as possible to protect the delicate equipment. The test board and other equipment are located in another room. Power Unit Installed The new building has three floors: In the basement the cables are brought into the structure, and a diesel-powered emergency power unit is installed which generates current to take care of the lights and power when necessary. It cuts in automatically and can operate as long as necessary: It will be possible 1 to switch'" from the .present building to the new one with little if any time lapse-there will be less than five- minutes lost. Smiley estimates. The heating and ventilating systems are located in the basement. Fire brick walls where needed are part of the new structure. The ventilation system will bring air off the roof for the equipment room. The ceilings are suspended, and are made of acoustical tile. Walls are of haydite, and will be painted attractive green with green trim. In the equipment rooms, both walls and ceilings will be of white enamel. Equipment on the second floor will include a 28-positIon board to handle lor..? distance calls, with a rate and route desk separate. A pneumatic tube system will be used to send the call slips from the long distance operators to the rate desk Immediately after the calls are, placed and completed. Approximately 70 girls will be employed. The-building Includes lounges, kitchenette unit, conference room, tool terminal 'equipment room; «tc. According to contract, work on (he structure Itself will be completed by May, but It will take 20 weeks tn Install the equipment. Fever women will be employed Death Toll In Storm 220 Fatalities In Arkansas 120 .Little: RocMVPtrT.he t o l l of known dead in tornadoes and a flood which hit the South last Friday nas been revised slightly downward. Latest .total for Arkansas was placed.-at 120 by the Red Cross after elimination of duplications and errors on the list of dead. That made 220 the .qverall toll for .

Eugene Newsom Quits State Publicity Job Little Rock-WVEugcne Newsom, veteran Arkansas public relations counselor, has resigned' as publicity director for the Arkansas Resources and Development Commission, and will be succeeded by Mrs. Vlrglnc RoMnson, assistant director since 1840. Newsom did not dlscloic his plans. under the new system, but more mat* employes than used at the present will be needed, Lambert Quits As Chairman 01 RoadCommission Physically, Mentally Discouraged And Tired, He Declares Little Rock-OT-Governor Me- Math met.today with the Arkansas Highway' Commission--minus the man who had 'been its chairman since the McMath administration took over. Saying . in * letter to McMath thoT he was "physically and mentally tired and discouraged," Chairman J, B. Lambert of Helena, resigned last night. Lambert 'said he had been considering the move for 'some time, but didn't want to quit while the Highway Audit Commission was making investigations which resulted recently in a report sharply critical of the Highway Commission, the Highway Department and McMath, McMath's conference with the Highway Commission was closed. The governor requested the meeting to. make "specific recommendations" in connection with HAC's report. The governor. said any recommendations he might make would given in written form to newsmen after the conference. Praises Employes .In his two-page letter, Lambert said, "I personally think the maintenance and construction accomplished during your (McMath's) administration far ex-: ceeds in quality and quantity that of any other administration in the listory of the state." In this connection he lauded the 'overworked, under-paid staff of highway employes." Lambert said he was "personally affected . . ' . by the recriminations and criticisms, ivhether justified or not, which hafc been cast at the commission as a whole . . ." Lambert attended nearly all the HAC public hearings recently. He appeared several times as a voluntary witness.- After-.thifi morning's closed session with McMath, the Highway CommlMlpn .was to meet in-regular sws'ionrtp hear report* on the Highway Department's financial condition. ' . Hugoton, Kan.-WV'The o n l y sensible thing to do was land," said Chief Pilot Jack Stanford, who helped land a flaming air- iner with 50 persons aboard in a wheat field yesterday. Only one passenger was Injured. The Braniff Airlines' DC-4 came down with one of its four engines gone and a wing in flames. The anding was perfect. Minutes after .he 45 passengers anr] five crew members scurried out, flames consumed virtually the entire plane. Neither Stanford nor Co-Pilot John Beaklcy, both of Dallas, Texas, would lake credit for an extraodinary job. They h.,d little !o say. But O. R. Stiles, an Oklahoma -ily lawyer who was a passenger, mi ounvH The collision of a true! arid a .hreshing machine, unlikely as it seems, touched off a damage suit lied yesterday in Circuit Court. John Whitaker of nc;.. Prairie rove said in his suit against Fox DeLuxe Foods, Inc., thai a truck owned by Fox left the road, en- Lered his field and demolished lis thresher on February 19, 1951. He asks $950 damages lor the wrecked machine. The advertisers of some other Fayetteville, probably Fayetteville, Texas, were let down rather heavily yesterday when they pinned .heir faith^on large circulais touting a half-dozen businesses. Mailed to "Box Holder, Fayetteville," hey were missent to Fayrtteville, Ark., where the boxholders may iave a little trouble locating -ordes Motor Company and the Ed Sarrazin Dry Good Store, lor example. That stop sign the Highway Department planted in the middle of Prospccl Street (Highway 45) at the intersection with Mission Slrcet is slowly growing shorter and shorter. Slanding in the dead ccnler of Ihe pavement, as it does,' [he sign is quite frequently flattened by passing automobiles. Each accident snaps a few more inches off the bottom of the post. Maybe one of these days It'll" be low enough to pass under cars. And speaking of slop signs, Ihc word is lhat the Highway Department is more than somewhat opposed to having a stop light installed on the new Highway 71 by-pass through south Fnyetlc- vllle, .The absence of f Iraffic- slopping lighl would make it difficult for school c h i l d r e n - - a n d adults--to cross the pavement. 84-Yeor-Old Triplets Celebrate Birthday Marlboro, Mass.-(/K)-Thrce spry ladler,--possibly the country's oldi est Irlplcls--are observing their 84th birthday today. The former Faith, Hope and Charity Cotighlln ! are identical triplets. All widows, the triplets still are exactly the same height and weigh almost the same. All boast of (oqd teeth. None worries abou! dii-.l?. Their once blonde hair hn turned a uniform gray. Although «n \ , spectacles, their blue «ye* are still bright.
