LITTLE EOCK (AP) -^ A rule saying any Little Rock policeman or fireman promolec to the rank of captain or a higher rank must be a rcsiden of the city and remain so while holding the rank was nullifiec in circuit court Monday. The rule had been adopted in September 1972 by the Litll Rock Civil Service Commission Judge Warren E. Wood of Pu laski County issued the rulinf at the end of a 2K-hour trial o a lawsuit filed in January b eight policemen -- two cap tains, five lieutenants and In specter Kennilh Pearson. Ed Daniel, attorney for thi plaintiffs. dropped Pearson from the suit before the tria because, he said, Pearson' name had been put on the sui 3y mistake. Another plaintiff Lt. Leo Harris, retired about a month ago and did not : partic pale in the trial. Testimony from the six remaining plaintiffs indicated that retirement after 20 years' Employment probably would be the course they would follow if tiie rule remained in effect because the incentive of advancement would not exist unless they, moved into the city.

(AP) -- A rescarcli report by the Ar- siis Legislative Council stafl n the legal ramifications ol :ie proposed Equal Right: .mendment to the Unitec states Constitution is biasec and incomplete, an active ERA ipponcnt said Monday. Cliarlolte Felt of New Or- eans, nn Arkansas native, was commenting on a report t h a t Suggests tlial about 50 state aws would be affected by the ratification of the proposed ERA. Mrs. Felt said she had seen he report and that she was amazed that it's considered by Â·uiyone to be an unbiased re- ort." 7 Mrs. Felt contended that far more than 50 Arkansas laws would be jeopardized by ERA ratification, partly because employment laws were interpreted according to guidelines of the federal Labor Department's Citizen's Commission on the Status of Women. Mrs. Fell said the commission was vociferously pro-ERA. "So what you have." she de claved, "is the council using the yardstick of 4he ERA promoters to determine what laws would be affected by the passage of the ERA." She also said every law affected by ERA ratification probably would be tested in the federal courts, "and I don't think anyone wants any more encroachment by the federal courts into state affairs." Mrs. Felt is the wife of Arthur F. Felt, retired editor-in- chief of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
