Also NLR Students File Suit For Reinstatement LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- A suit was filed in U.S. District Court Thursday seeking to reinstate seven black students who were suspended from North Little Ro c k Northeast High School as a result of a racial disturbance there. The suit, filed by attorney John W. Walker of Little Rock, also seeks to dismiss the criminal charges against the seven Thursday, Gary P. Barket, the attorney for one of the white students who was suspended and criminally charged as a result of the incident, filed a suit seeking to get his client reinstated at school. Barket's suit contended that his client, Steve Duncan, was suspended without due process. The suit also contended that Duncan was told that he would remain suspended pending the outcome of criminal proceedings against him Sept. 27 in North Little Hock Municipal Court. Barket asked the court to reinstate Duncan and to prevent school officials from suspending or expelling Duncan without a prior hearing. Walker's suit said several white students attacked one of his clients, Lonnie Lyons, and other black students Sept. 12. "Lyons defended himself and as a result was summarily sus- charged by school officials in Bicentennial Status Ceremony Planned At Game Half-Time Representative John Paul Hammerschmidt failed to cast a single vote in lavor of consumers during the current session of Congress, according to a study issued jointly this week by Arkansas Consumer Citizen Action and the Consumer Federation of America. On 13 votes relating to issues such as real estate settlement costs, the Consumer Protection Agency, oil price rollbacks, and fuel rationing, Hammerschmidt failed to support the consumers' interests, the groups said. Director of the ACR:P1CA. Fred Cowan, deemed Hammerschmidt's voting record "shameful." "We hope that he will no longer be able lo deceive his constituents into thinking he has their interests in mind," Cowan said. C a r o l Tucker Foreman, executive director of Consumer Federation of America, charged that Hammerschmidt and other representatives who had anti-consumer records "eagerly sacrificed the needs of their constituents to satisfy a small number of business barons." Some of the major votes and Hammerschmidt's position, according to the groups' j o i n t report are: -- Hammerschmidt v o t e d against an amendment to roll back the price of domestic crude oil to $5.25 a barrel and to allow prices to rise no more than 35 per. cent above that if Congress felt an increase justified. --Hammerschmidt v o t e d against final passage of the bill to establish an independent Consumer Protection Agency at the federal level to provide representation for consumers before other federal agencies. --Hammerschmidt vo t e c against an amendment to ensure that the four public members of a commodity trading regulatory commission pro posed would be full-lime em ployes. --Hammerschmidt voted to retain provisions of a real estate settlement costs bill that DECA Elects Officers For Year Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Friday, Sept. 20, 1974 FAYETTKVILLI.

The suit added that a large number of black and white students got into fights at a pep .assembly Sept. 14. As a result, "school officials summarily suspended Walker's six other clients -- Carlton Conley, Ronald Parker, David Williams, Tommie Williams. Jerry Laster and Cornelium Allison, the suit said. The school officials did not try to identify all of the parti c i- panls in the fight, the suit alleged. Instead, the suit contended, the school officials "selectively, arbitrarily and discriminatorily" decided that six of Walker's clients and several white students would be sus pended and charged with disturbing the peace, assault and battery or both. Colson Imprisoned In Alabama MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Charles W. Colson, the former presidential aide, has been quietly transferred to a federal prison at Maxwell Air Force about 40,000 people can participate in the designation ceremony. At its Thursday afternoon meeting, the steering committee heard Stan Brown of the University's horticulture department discuss the proposed planting of 200 trees along Hwy. 71 in Fayelteville and Springdale. To be undertaken by Fayetteville and Springdaie, the tree plantings would begin on Hwy. 71 near Sound City and continue north to the Springdaie underpass. Pointing out that highway safety precautions would need lo be observed, Brown said the ,rees would have to be about Base here. Colson, who was a special counsel to former President Kichard M.

No reason was given for his transfer. Tenn. Seeks Damages After Deer Kill MEMPHIS, Tcnn. (AP) -- 'A Georgia research biologist has testified that a herbicide identified as a poison that killed 11 whitetail deer in a wooded section of southwest Memphis contained an inorganic arsenic compound. Dr. Forest E. Kellogg, a research biologist and veterinary pathologist at the University of Georgia, testified Thursday in a circuit court suit that the label on the herbicide warned it was not to be used on farmland but was intended for controling Johnson grass on lawns. The suit, filed by the stale of Tennessee, seeks $53,000 in damages from a Memphis farmer and West Memphis. Ark., cropdusting firm accused of negligence in the 1971 deer kill. Kellogg said an analysis of samples from the carcasses of five dead d e e r showed they died of arsenic poisoning. Defendants in the suit- Charles S. Riggan, owner of the 300-acre field near the Mississippi River where the deer fed and died, and Neil Dickey Inc., the West Memphis crop- dusting firm--claim that customary farming methods were used in readying the tract f o r 'soybean planting. Also, since the trees have to be 30 feet away from traffic, this would put them right on the Arkansas Highway Department's right-of-way fence line. The state highway department, which does not object to the project if safety regulations are observed and the grass around the trees is able to be maintained, would have to allow the planting of trees just inside the :ence line. The trees could not be planted on private property, Brown said. Nor can trees be planted on utility right-of-way. Brown estimated the cost of buying and planting each tree at $50. McKinny said it had been discussed as to whether to let citizens donate the cost of a tree at a later date. The suggestion of installing a plaque explaining why the trees were planted was also raised. Such a plaque might be erected at the entrance to Lake Fayetteville park. At Thursday's session, the group also discussed funding possibilities for other bicentennial programs, restoring the Dickson Street train depot as a bicentennial project, and encouraging the planting of hard maples across-town.
