Lawsuit Challenging Prison Printing Work Is Planned LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- A lawsuit challenging the right of a prison-education program to handle some printing or duplicating work for other state agencies is to be filed against the state Correction Department this week. Joe D. Bell, a Little Rock lawyer, confirmed .that a suit was being prepared. State Auditor Jimmie "Red 1 " Jones is delaying payment of $60.000 by stale agencies to Cummins Prison Farm for work done by inmates who are in the prison's graphic arts program -- the first industrial training program undertaken at the prisons. ' The firms' officials contend that the work being done at the prisons is printing rather than duplicating. Howard Pierce, the stale printing clerk, agrees. Correction Commissioner Terrell Don Hutto asked Atty. Gen. Jim Guy Tucker on June 26 for. a legal opinion on the question, but Hutto has received no response. Tucker apparently will not issue an opinion because Hie lawsuit is to be filed. Ed Dermitl, who supervises the graphic arts program at the prison, said Asst. Atty. Gen. Lonnie A. Powers had been to the prisons to study the program to assist him in drafting Officials of printing firms a legal °P'i'"- contend that the work should be done by private concerns because of a constitutional provision saying printing should be done by competitive bidding I don t know what Mr. Tucker did with the opinion," Dermitt said.

Apparently, a lawsuit will settle the dispute, Powers .said. Hutto had asked whether the [Work being done for other state agencies met the guidelines for duplicating rather than printing under Act 100 of 1969. That law made a distinction between printing and duplicating and authorized guidelines under which the duplicating would be performed. Hutlo also asked whether the '1869 law was constitutional. Power said his research, lich he emphasized was pre- minary only, indicated that e law was constitutional and at the work performed by the mates complied with the du- icaling guidelines. P o w e r s said the con- itutionality of the 1969 law as not been directly tested in iurt.

Bill S. Clark of Little Rock, n attorney for the state High- ay Commission, made the atemcnt in oral arguments efore the high court. Clark insisted that the state iw on union dues was per- issive and was approved so lat slate agencies could in- lude the administrative costs f deducting union dues in their iennial budgets to the stale egislature. John T. Lavey, attorney for he Slate Highway Employes 1 1315, told the court that Arkansas Statute 13-349 was not mbiguous when it said "de- uctions from the payrolls of tale employes, both regular nd extra help, shall be permitted only" for certain pur- oses, including "payment of mion dues when requested is vriting by slate employes." The Highway Department de- .ucted union dues for 1,100 un- on members, primarily em- iloyes in the department's naintenance division, from May 15, 1972 until Oct. 13. 1973. The commission said it .topped deductions because it vas an administrative cost, had no benefit to taxpayers or the state's highway program and discriminated against "the great majority" of employes who do not want to be union members. The department does not recognize the union. The union sued to have lha dues checkoff system rein- slated, but Circuit Courl Judge Tom F, Digby of Pulaski Coun'.y ruled for the department. The union appealed. A decision Is expected from the Supreme Court within two weeks. Lavey said he would not be standing before the .Supreme t justices if 'the law said deductions "may be permitted" because that "certainly implies discretion" on the department's part. He pointed out that the law said "shall be permitted" when requested by the em- ploye.' _^ West Memphis Newspaper Sold WEST MEMPHIS, Ark.

Harry K. Brown, formerly of Vest Helena, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court, here l a s t year to a charge that he had ransporled the stolen artifact rom Florida to West Helena. He was fined $2,500 and placed on three years probation. , The 6-foot-talI artifact is a arge limestone tablet. ' The FBI seized the tablet, called a stele, from Brown's residence in early 1972. Since then, it has reposed in storeroom in the basement of the Post Office Building on Capitol Avenue in Little Rock. Consul General Nery Hodolfo Valladares is to take possession of the 300-pound stele late today for shipment back to Guatemala. Mother: As a mother of 2, I'm very concerned about the safety of my children. -Thaf s why when we decided to remodel, we chose electric heating. There's no flame to worry about. No smoke and no soot. Most important, there are no fumes to pollute the air my family breathes. As far as our family's concerned, electric heat is very safe. Engineer: When you take a look at the facts, electric heat is a very efficient use of energy. Here's why. Electricity can be produced by a variety of local natural resources. And once produced, electricity can do thousands of jobs in the home or office. But the primary fuel needed to produce electricity is only applicable to a few jobs. Electricity is versatile. If s a real energy saver and a very economical way to he at your home. Building Contractor: Because I have electric heating in my own home, it's easy to understand why more and more customers ask for it when they get ready to build. Electric heating requires very litlle maintenance. Maybe a filter change every now and then. It takes up a lot less space and there are dozens of types to choose from. Baseboard, furnace and heat pump (which combines both heating and cooling). I really recommend electric heating. Housewife: My husband and I wanted the very best for our family. So when we built our new home, we chose electric heat. It's a much cleaner heat. There's no smoke or soot. It makes house cleaning a lot easier, believe me. You dust less. Clean less. Repaint less. Electric heat actually saves money on cleaning bills. And it's a real energy saver. Accountant: I honestly believe electric heat is the most economical. And these days, getting the most for your money is important to e.very home-owner. Electric heat is usually less expensive to install in a new home and when remodeling, the cost depends on the insulation required and the type o£ system needed. Believe me, electric heat costs a lot less than you've been told. There are many reasons to choose electric heat. But the most important Is wise energy management. We have the electricity you need. For more information, call your nearest SWEPCO office or your local heating contractor.
