Miller I Hits Salary I Supplements By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 'Rep. John Miller of. Melbourne told other members of the Legislative Joint Auditing Committee Saturday that supplementing the salaries of the ^-president of the University of Arkansas and the chancellor of , .the Pine Bluff campus was a circumvention of the law. Miller said both men were .-'paid more than the salaries authorized by the General Assembly through the use of money from the University of Arkansas Foundation by the Board of Trustees. The salary provided by the recurrent appropriation for the _^jmiversity president is about $37,000, but the school has raised it to $45,000 for the new beat Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, 65, chairman of the Ways Means Committee, in the eral election next month. "I'm completely, totally, and gen --,, absolutely optimistic," says Mrs. Petty. ' "I know Mr. Mills is deter' mjned to win, but I Just feel like I'm going to win. I'm so determined, well, if determination, was all there was to it, I definitely would win, fhat's · how determined I feel." She is 30, mother of a 10- year-old girl, Debbie, and lives with her parents in Little Rock. Mrs. Petty's political involvement had been limited to work as a neighborhood volunteer for Winthrop Rockefeller n his 1964 and 1966 gubernatorial campaigns until her 1967 divorce. The were jefore, I would be callous and take all this for granted, but I don't see how -- people spend their time, their energy, their money for you." CAMPAIGNED HARD She more has campaigned vigorously than much Mills, who has hardly put in appearances that could be construed as campaign ventures. In one week, Mrs. Petty made 26 stops in one county alone and met factory shifts around the clock. Her theme has been, "My only special interest is you," and she has hit Mills hard because of illegal corporate donations, ;roups, president, Dr. 'Miller, said. Charles Bishop, zations which operated in 1971 and 1972 before he said he was running ·' for the Democratic presidential nomination.

David Ivey, the secretary Tor Clinton's campaign headquarters, confirmed Sunday night that .194 persons were polled last weekend in the survey, which showed 43.3 per cent favoring Hammerschmidt, per cent for .Clinton and per cent undecided.

"It's a matter of very grave ·"concern to me that the Board =of Trustees can wink at the law and expect other people to abide by the law." Miller said, Fred Vorsanger, · vice president of the university, said the salary supplements came from private gifts to the foundation from persons interested in quality education. He said the General Assembly could avoid the need for salary supplements by raising .the salary appropriation ,. .so that highly qualified people i'iticould be hired. Ozark Society Supports Closed i Road Policy V;;V LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Dr. MiJoe Nix of Arkadelphia, presi- _dent of the Ozark Society, says "....The society supports the U.S. .i Forest Service's policy of clos- "-ing certain roads in the Ozark- *t|St. Francis National Forest for whatever that catch-all thing is," and now she docs not know where her former husband is. But their split meant that she, who had been a housewife, needed to "find a way to bring home the bacon -r- I had a little girl to feed. "So I asked myself: What would I want to do if I could do whatever I wanted to? The answer was politics." - . . .Rockefeller, who died in 1973 after two terms as governor, was. funding his' own political offices apart from the Republican party operation. "I walked in and applied for a job," Mrs. Petty said. "They lired me as a secretary for $300 a week.'"' · ' - · ' · ' : . ROCKEFELLER LIAISON While considerable in-fighting :ook place from time to time in She Rockefeller heirarchy, Mrs. Petty escaped most of the open conflicts and became Rockefeller's liaison, with the federal government. She also assumed liaison duties in connection with his role as GOP national committeeman. She worked herself up the ranks in the Young Republicans organization in Arkansas, became vice chairman of the YFJ N a t i o n a l Federation, , ·. and served as chairman .for the; 2nd District section of the Arkansas that includes supporters. says more than $80,000 was.ille- gally given from corporate assets of dairy groups to "draft Mills" functions. "Wilbur Mills is up to his knees in sour milk," Mrs. Petty said. Mills, announcing in the spring for re-election, implicity acknowledged his opposition by remarking to newsmen, "I 'dp not have milk on the knee." v.'^ resource ·poses. ' Rep. management pur- _._,.. John Paul Ham- "merschmidt, R-Ark.. recently ....requested unsuccessfully that ·'.^'rnore roads in the f o r e s t be : "-"opened. Nix noted Saturday that the '·''"Forest Service had rejected ': ""p r e s s u r e from Hammer- · --schmidt and " o t h e r unin- the /.'^'formed people" to open """roads. Nix said Hammerschmidt \was not fully informed of the 'situation and had requested -,,.(hat the roads be opened due to ',,.,,,pressure from his constituents. , Hammerschmidt had said: .'1'"One of the m o s t persistent '"complaints forwarded to me by citizens of the 3rd Congression- ."^Tal District continues to be their Tdissatisfaclion with the Forest ·""Service policy of closing certain ..roads." The only r o a d s the Forest Service has closed are those -- n o t intended for heavy traffic rj: which might cause erosion or ."'damage-to the forest, Nix said. which is a group some women's lib Mrs. Petty, who has worked with some women's lib groups, has neither pumped up nor played down her efforts with lib organizations. T h o u g h sometimes referred to by the women's liberation prefix, "Ms." rather than "Mrs.," she said she "doesn't get exercised about it one way or another." She seems to enjoy campaigning and greets voters with a bright smile, a warm handshake and a seeming willingness to listen. "I can't tell you what it means to me seeing how people work for a cause they believe in," she said. "It's very humbling, honestly, when you realize that it's you .they believe in". Maybe if I had run for office Judy, pretending a slip-of-the- longue, occasionally refers to trim as as "Wilbur Milk." Cartoonists, taking the theme, have shown a Mills-faced cat licking cream from its whiskers. RAPS TAX SYSTEM "But she also has accused Mills of doing little in the powerful post of Ways and Means chairman to rid the nation of inflation and what she decries as an inequitable tax system that needs reform. . Mills said he is working on tax reform. Mrs. Petty said he says that every election year. · "Let's not be fooled by election-eve rhetoric," she said. 'His record oh tax reform is dismal. Every one of us knows that the cost of government is on the average taxpayer, while the control of government is in the hands of special interests." While she offers much criticism, she has suggested little in the way of definite alternatives. She seems to want voters ; to take her on trust. On tax reform, for example, she says: "I don't have the figures and formula to rewrite the tax code. I Ken Coon for that position. The survey in'dicated'thst 76.2 per cent favored G'o'v. Dale Bumpers,' a". Democrat,vover Republican John Harris- Jones for the United States Senate. Fifty-eight of the 194 persons surveyed were in the 50 65 age group while 38 were over 65.

Washington the middle income taxpayer and vote ac- will just go up to with sympathy for cordingly." If is a tribute dustriousness, as to her well in- comment on Mills* handling of the corporate gifts controversy and the more recent Tidal Basin incident, that Mrs. Petty is deemed a possible winner in this race. At the outset, she was considered to be a GOP throwaway Area Man Shows Grand Champion At Dallas Show · BENTONVILLE -- Mike Rakes', of near Behtonvilld exhibited the grand champion cow in the Holslein breed at the Pan American Livestock Exhibition and Southwest ·, Regional Hol- steih Show, at 1 Dallas,' Tex. this past'week.

WASHINGTON (AP} -Drought relief in "parts of the 1 Great Plains and a switch from corn and other crops in some states may boost winter wheat plantings 3 to 5 per cent from last year, says an. .official.of the National Association of .Wheat Growers. "But that doesn't necessarily mean total grain production will go up next year," says Jerry Rces, executive vice president of the association. "It possibly could mean a decline," Rees said there Is..indication that many farmers who had severe corn losses from drought last summer are planting winter wheat this fal. Also, some- sorghum producers in the southwest appear to be doing likewise. Thus, because wheat is lower- yielding than corn and sor- gbums, the net grain output from, those converted acreages could be down sharply. Initially, Rees said in an _ terview, the association lasl August, surveyed members anc found they probably would not increase winter wheat plantings this fall. But effects of the drought became more appareni later and that probably caused much of the switching. Rees said winter wheat seed ing in Oklahoma and Texas ap pears to be up from last year because of improved soil mois lure conditions. Also, he said wheat seems to be popular in eastern Nebraska and parts o Kansas where drought-dam aged corn was cut for silage. But in part of western Kan sas, Colorado and a big section of Washington state, dry weath . USDA said winter wheat lanting for next year's harvest nade "fair progress" last month although heavy rains de- ayed field operations in Texas. "On Oct. 1 in the southern jreat Plains soil moisture sup- plentiful in much of 'ex'as, adequate to surplus in iklahoma, and mostly ade- well ahead ot normal" in Kanas with about 60 per cent of he crop seeded against only 35 )er cent a year ago and 50 per ,ent normally on the date. er has delayed winter whea still time seeding.
