O Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., Sept. 18, 1974 FAVCTTEVILLE, ARKANSAS Mills Enters Amendments To Program WASHINGTON--Rep. Wilbur .D. Mills (D.Ark.) announced : this week the introduction of '"a bill that would provide signifi- ·_ cant amendments to the 1972 General Revenue Sharing act which now supplies federal fi nancial aid to state, county and city governmental units. : Under the new bill, states · would be removed from the revenue sharing program as of Jan. 1, 1975, and the amended -,.general revenue sharing act ..would be extended for two addi- 1 tional years beyond t h e · scheduled expiration date of '··December, 197b. ;" Mills said that $4.848 billion '.' 'has been received by the state ' governments in the fiscal year 11)74 and that state governments "are now in much belter fiscal condition than U.S. counties and cities. Jt was observed by Mills that, in liscal year 1973, nearly all of the state governments en- 'joyed budget surpuses in con' trast to a scries of heavy _ deficits experienced by federal and city governments. Mills said that in 1974 it appeared that only one state government was in a deficit po- . sition. He wants to shift the revenue funds to those units of government most critically affected'by inflation, unemployment and other serious financial problems. TO DRAW MONEY The bill also will make it possible for cities lo draw ahead of time money lo which they normally would be entitled for the succeeding Iwo years. Mills feels lhat this would enable those governments which face emergency situations to receive immediate financial assistaance. Mills has pointed out that since the General Revenue Sharing Act was passed in 1972, the E'ederal government has taken over from the states an increasing share of the respon- School Board OKs Study For Future A limited study of future problem areas in the Fayetle- ville schools was authorized by [he Fayetteville School Board Tuesday night.

The board also authorized purchase of a 'building to house t h e Northwest Arkansas Learning Resource Center, a four-county program for special education materials and coordination. The building will be constructed by United Built Homes at a cost of approximately $13,500 and will be located on the campus of Asbell School.

A team of medical specialists was reported on standby at the Camp Pendlelon naval hospital near his San Clemente, Catif., home. Julie Nixon Eisenhower said ou Tuesday that the treatment Nixon received at home for the blood clots in his veins has improved his phlebitis and that he will, enter the hospital "to get something checked." She said he mother ha din- dicated that the former president was "irritable" because of the illness, but she labeled as "crazy" reports that his mind was wandering or that he was dangerously depressed about having to resign 'office last month. "Of course, he's not on top of the world," Mrs. Eisenhower said after taping several segments of the NBCTV "Not for Women Only" program in New York.

The new ordinance would permit a sign such as the one requested by the company, but the real issue, Malone said, was whether the differences set out in the ordinance between oti- site and off-sile signs was constitutional. Differences between the two classifications also ara present in Ihe new ordinance. Miilone said he felt the city had a good chance of winning the appeal, based on Ihe idea that Judge Cummings did not consider the entire amount of briefs submitted by both sides. He esliniated lhat the appeal would cost the city between $500 and $1,000. The Board then authorized City Attorney Jim McCord -to pursue Ihe matter on to the higher court.
