Police checked with.the'pawn shop owner and arrested Wilson "I think we are very fortunate in Washington County because we have the juvenile facilities, that we have al present. The three juvenile homes here are excellent. We need improvement but I think this comes from not having enough financial support," he said. In response to questions posed by the audience of some 20 committee members the candidates agreed with the concept of establishment of a holding facility for juveniles which would be between the minimum security of the detention homes and the maximum security of a jail cell. Neither however felt the present county jail was adequate to develop such a station. Both also saw the need for a new jail and Marshall noted that at present there are 33 prisoners awaiting trial in the county jail.

Greenspan, who left his New York consulting firm to succeed Herbert Stein in the key post, is known to favor as little government interference as possible in the economy. "I like his approach," Ford said. "He isjec- ognized as an optimist ..." The President acknowledged the economy is plagued by^severe problems, but added, "we have to be optimistic about what we can do about it ... That attitude is helpful and beneficial as we face some of the problems and hard decisions ahead." A follow-up meeting has been scheduled for New York on Sept. 23, with the economists presenting detailed papers to be submitted to the full summit conference later that week. P r i o r to the initial conference, White House coordinator L. William Seidman and White House Press Secretary Jerald F. terHort said it was unlikely Congress could act this year on any major proposals flowing from the summit.

Dugan said Housing and Urban Development (HUD) officials at the state office in Little Rock are researching the situation to help determine what happens now. City officials reacted more favorably to the announcement. "I don't see how it can do anything but help. I haven't studied all the implications but it certainly should change the picture somewhat." said Don Grimes, Fayetteville city manager. His optimism was echoed by Mayor Russell Purdy. "I have had a ray of hope all along and this action just adds to my hope that we might save the building. The more I thought about it the more I disliked that park arrangement that had been drawn up," he said.
