(AP Wire- pholo) ESD Employes Said Told To Bill State For Gasoline LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- J. Merle Lemley, who resigned as administrator of the state Employment Security Division last month, told his traveling em- Dloyes last March to put an ex- :ra tankful of gasoline in their cars each week and bill the state for it. This was intended to circumvent the state's 10-cent-a-mile imit on reimbursement for official travel. Lemley no longer is ESD administrator at least partly because of that decision. Henry L. McHenry, who succeeded Lemley Oct. 1 as ESD administrator, notified 63 ESD employes last week that they should reimburse the state for the gasoline because it violated travel regulations. The total amount was $5,064 with the amounts ranging from a few dollars to $180. Employes have, the option of paying the amount they owed in a lump sum or over three months. Lemley resigned after a meeting with Goy. Dale Bumpers, who has said the resignation was voluntary. The gasoline decision reportedly had been brought to,Bumpers' attention after an inquiry into conditions at the ESD and was a factor in the' decision to call in Lemley. THOUGHT INADEQUATE Nick J. Bass, ESD purchasing administrator, said Tuesday that Lemley had decided to take the action because he thought the 10-cent-a-mile reimbursement under regulations then was inadequate to com- pensate employes for their ex penses. "Apparently out of the goot ness of his heart," Bass saic Lemley had said that employe who traveled regularly shoul put a tank of gasoline in thei 3ars each week -- up to 20 ga Ions -- and then attach a vou cher with their regular trave reimbursement vouchers. Th. was in addition to the 10 cent, a mile that the employes go for their travel. Bass said he told Lemley a the time that the step violate regulations, but he said Lemle concluded that he had the au thortiy to do' it. A few employe did not take advantage of th order. , The one-fank-a-weck polic lasted until June, when it wa changed to permit one.tank e\ ery two weeks. The legislator at a special session that mont raised the reimbursement a lowance to 13 cents a mil After that, the ESD employ! were not allowed to charge th state any more for the extr gasoline. At ASU Lecture Series Halfield Has Mixed Feelings On Ford Program Dynamite Blast Rocks Virginia Elementary School CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A dynamite blast damaged a rural elementary school today and another building was slightly damaged by fire in the wake of the jailing of a minis- er protesting against textbooks, state police reported. The West Branch Elementary School in Kanawha County suf- 'ered moderate damage from ;he explosion. The explosive lad been placed at the entrance of the building. No -injuries were reported. ' Pupils from that school were shifted to classes at Chelyan. Midway Elementary School on Campbells Creek was slightly damaged when what state police described as a fire bomb was tossed through a window. The blaze was quickly extinguished. The classroom- schedule was not affected. Schools in the Kanawha County area have been the object of protests' by a group led by the Rev. Ezra Graley, a minister. The group claims a number of text books used in the county's schools are anti- American and un-Chrislian. The explosion and fire at the schools in this mountainous coalfield region came less than 12 hours after Graley was sentenced to 60 days in jail and fined $1,500. Graley was one of 19 persons arrested Monday during picket 1 ing. The sentence will run consecutively with a 30-day sentence earlier given Graley for violation of the same injunction. Too much Industry hus been locating in metropolitan areas, Hatlield said, and the rural areas have not been bencfitting from it. Hatfield said tlie government should reduce spending "and we can." He suggested that over-all bell-tightening by the government would work If each agency and cnch state would not approach the cutback with the idea that that agency or stale is immune from a cutback. Halfield, known for his of forts to abolish the military draft, suggested that some of the cutback could be in the military by, perhaps, reducing the number of overseas military personnel. He said there is too heavy of a ratio of admirals and generals to enlisted men at this point compared with ratio during World War II. '"I do believe in military defense, but you have to have diversified military defense. That's the k e y -- diversification," Hatfield said. Hattield said loo much emphasis has been placed on military and political strength in the world and not enough emphasis on short-and long-range altempts to share world resources. Hatfield indicated that when Americans talk in terms of na- .lonul security, they almost al-. ways think of military defense. Insiend, he indicated, national security' eventually will mcari coexisting-wilh other countries and sharing the world's resources in an -equitable man' ner. . ; Halfield referred to the United States' accelerated use ot natural resources and, stressed that "developing na- lions of the world will not continue to produce the demand we put on them" when they, cannot meet some of their own essential needs. "Two salient factors characterize our society," Hatfield said. ' "One, the' demand tor convcnipnce and, two, 1 the demand for the disposable." These factors have put a major demand on the energy necessary to synthesize goods. Hatfield said. The senator characterized America as having a "throwaway ethic." '·· - ; Hatfield, a senator since 1966, called for a change in. the, American lifestyle that would remove' the emphasis from machines and computers and return it to the human personality. - , ' Springdale Board Reallocates Leftover Revenue Funds SPRINGDALE--In a brief session of the City Council Tuesday night, two resolutions were adopted and the problem ot flooding in the Woodland Heights subdivision was discussed. Aldermen approved a resolution -for the reallpcation of revenue sharing funds left over from the 1973-74 fisccal year. All (he money allotted the police, fire, and recreation divisions in the budget was not spent. The money will be reallocated to the same depirtmcnts but will be used for different purposes. In the fire department, $2,000 will be spent"bri a portable heart monitor-deiibrillator to be used in the recently-purchased intensive care ambulance. The police department will use $2,700 of its money to hire for six months a full-time records clerk. At the end of that time he salary will be included in the regular police budget. Money allotted in the recreation divison last year will be spent on a trampoline and football equipment at the Springdale Youth Center and a pool iable at the Park Street Community Center. A resolution commending D.D. Deaver for his service on the Sliiloli Museum Board was also passed. Deaver, who was HOME Of BETTER VALUES FOR OVER 56 YEARS!
