16 · Northwest Arktmsot TIMES, Wed., Oct. 16, 1974 FAYETTEVILLE. ARKANSAS . For Board Of Directors Meet The Candidates... Mrs. Christine Bailey, 31, of 8.W. Elm St. is running for position two, representing Ward Two, against three opponents, William (Pat) Walkins, John Todd 'and. Jim Lindsey. Mrs. Bailey and her husband, Jerry, are the parents of two children. She was born in Fayetteville. has a high school education and is the manger of the housewares department at Montgomery Ward. "I'm against a city income tax-," she said, "because in this time of inflation, people are already burdened enough without adding more." ' On'the subject of inflation, Mrs. 'Bailey said "I don't know how the city can combat inflation. No one else seems to be able to. We can keep cutting back and cutting back, but we can only cut so far before citizens begin screaming for the return of much needed services. A line has to be drawn somewhere and something must be done soon." Mrs. Bailey feels that the board is a policy making body only. "A city manager has been trained to run a city. The board members represent the people CHRISTINE BAILEY At The Library and make the city's policy. From there, the city manager and his staff carry out the board's policy." She said she believes that the general street program . should be expanded but that o t h e r programs, such as sanitation and park and recreation, should be left about the same. "We have to s t a r t thinking about alternatives to the city's five-mill voluntary tax now. If that is declared unconstitutional, we will have to find some other way to support our fire department, which is one area we cannot cut back." "I want to be a board member so I can be a part of what happens in this city and a part of the decisions that are made. I live Fayetteville and feel that I can do a good job," she said. ON SPECIAL INTERESTS Mrs. Bailey said she is not a member ot any special intersi 1C wan' the people of ' By ANN JACOBS Many of the library's patrons are 'browsers, but most seem to come with a specific need for information, so for the next few, weeks I'm going to · list some points to help particular interest groups get the most out cf the Fayetteville Public Library. First, students with all ages who need material for a report. Bring pencil and paper, and some change for the photocopy machine (10 cents per page) and the pay phone. Try to give yourself plenty of time, because you may find more than you expected on your topic. Unless it's a joint assignment, you'll accomplish more by yourself than with a tableful ol your buddies. Get as clear a picture as possible of what the teacher wants. If he or fi h e assigns "South America," ask if his' tory, geography, current events or whatever is wanted; and which country (ies). BUY YOURSELF a good desk dictionary of 50,000 to lOO.OOi entries -- smaller ones jus don't do the job. There an other desirable home referenci works (see "Home Referenci Books in Print." which rate them), but a dictionary is i must. -·-· · : · Other basic sources in thi library are general encyclo pedias (expensive for family purchase, and they go out o date in a few years, so usi the library sets, which ari replaced regularly), atlases yearbooks of current event information and encyclopedia on special topics Cart, science r e l i g i o n , etc.). Foreig l a n g u a g e dictionaries a n special English dictionarie (slang, abbreviations, etc.) ar also here. A VERY important eourci much used, is "Reader's Guid to Periodical Literature," ii dexing articles in a couple h u n d r e d magazines. Fo currant events, and arei where knowledge goes quick it of date, as it does in the :iences, magazines a r e the ily satisfactory · source of formation. Some of our very best in- irmation is in the Reference epartment to be instantly vailabte, so it does not check ut. This is one good reason come yourself, prepared to r ork, rather than to send Mom 'ith instructions to " g e t me omething on South America for londay." (Fathers rarely seem be victimized into doing this hore.) Besides, Mom gra- uated from high school a num- er of years ago -- why make er go through it all over gainV A good information s o u r c e lat usually does check out is pamphlet, and there are thou- ands in the Vertical File cabl- ets. We order heavily from the J.S. Government Printing Of- ice and other places e v e r y month, to k e e p these files up to date. EVERYONE KNOWS there's ooks in a library, so I mention hese last. We have books. OK? We have more books on some iubjects than on others, so sometimes we ask you to limit .he number you take at *a time, ;o be fair t° others with the same assignment. If you 1 are totally hung up group, has no pet projects am no axe to grind. "I just wan to work for Fayetteville." "I definitely support the cits manager form of government,' she said, because if we didn' have it wo would have a mayor who could only devote p a r Editor's Note The two articles on this page are in a series on candidates for positions on the Fayetteville Board of Directors. Each candidate has been interviewed on his stands and beliefs on the problems and opportunities facing Fayetteville. Twenty persons have filed for posts on the seven-member Board of Directors. Four successful candidates will represent the city's four wards, while three will be elected at large. Jim Lindsey, 30, who has gained a reputation in college and professional football, is seeking a position on the City Board of Directors. A native of Forrest City, Lindsey has filed for position 2 and he is opposed by Pat Watkins, Jotii Todd and Mrs. Christine Bailey Lindsey, who has made hi home in Fayetteville since he enrolled at the University of Arkansas in 1862, is presently president of Lindsey and Associates, a real estate company. For seven years he played football with the Minnesota Vikings and for five years i n v o l v e d here. The city manager is responsible for carrying out policy and makirfg administrative decisions," he said. Lindsey sees the city manager form of government as a good way to get t h i n g s done. "I think it is an- excellent method to get things done on a very professional basis with someone who has professional training, who can advise and recommend and the city board omposed of seven men, rather han one, can come to a a t i o n a 1 solution with rofessional help," he said. "I feel the park arrangements liat we have are ideal, and hey increase the desirability of lie city. There are other areas hat we coujd embark into thai vould : be good. The city do well to retain. Fayetteville jute," he said. : ' ' "I wouldn't place my qualifications above anyone else's and think that any citizen of ·"ayetteville can handle this job. We have the quality of people icre, both men and \vomen, who could capably handle it. .My nost prominent qualification is ,hat after g o i n g to the University I decided to make Fayclleville my home. I went iO this school and I am proud of that. I am proud of all of Arkansas and if 1 can serve then I want to., I am a|so very sincerely and deeply aware of the preservaton of this area like il is. If anyone checks i n t o the type of developments we have done they w i l l - s a y that"it is much-in that line. In. addition I have an overview of what is going :on :in town and I think time to the job. With a cityk v a s captain of the special manager we have a man who can devote his full attention to the problems of the city and who is trained to do so." on how to write even how to read paper, or an assign- Checkers Champ To Defend Title TALLAHASSEE, Fla. CAP) -- The last time Marion Tinsley lost a game of checkers, Hicii- ard M. Nixon was vice president of the United States and the Milwaukee Braves played in the World Series. "I lost one game since 1950, the first game of the world title match in 1958, but I won the match 9 to 1," said the soft- spoken associate professor ol mathematics at Florida A M University. Tinsley, 47, is a bachelor who enjoys canoeing, tennis and hiking. But his consuming passion in life is a game usually associated with little, boys, bored firemen and old men on park benches. Tinsley said he was the world checkers champion from 1911 to 1958, when he' retired undefeated. teams. He has lived in Fayetteville in the off-seasons during that time and has been here permanently for the past two years. He is married and he and his wife, Nita, have two sons, Lindy and John D a v i d. They live at 1034 Bonnie Lane. He is a member o:f the U n i v e r s i t y Baptist Church where he has held committee positions and is presently chairman of "Ventures For C h r i s t . 1 ' He 'belongs to professional organizations and has done volunteer work for the U n i t e d , Cerebral Palsy Association. Lindsey is against a city in- AGAINST INCOME TAX come tax. "The tax burden npw is too much. I am for limiting expenditures instead of creasing revenues at this point in time. I feel that with the increased money we get from revenue sharing and other things we probably won't have to reduce services," he said. ; Inflation cannot be controlled locally according to Lindsey. "I don't believe that inflation can n its natural'stale, as r ncar as lossible. In the real -estate, f jusiness the greatest compli- ^ ment we get on the town, and ;his part of the country, is that _ it is very beautiful and very desirable place to live, I , am one of those people who are selfish enough to want, to see it stay that way," he said. . Lindsey lias a deep commitment to this area and says his is his reason for seeking the position. "I feel real deep about a lot of things. I feel 'x deep about God, my family, my ^ community and my country. I g" know this sounds naive or trite, £ in comparison to what we hear nowadays, but I do feel very deeply and I feel that serving on the Board is one way I can offer, my feelings. Although am busy I believe that how feel and care is real and inithose areas I can be effective end help coordinate It," he idded. . "My platform is one o balance. You have to maintain some type of balance within a community and you have t grow within, a community. T h e people who are coming here are »oing to niake us -grow. They love what we ha v e and yet within balance it is necessary to maintain a sensibility towards what is ^happening around us. We have to be careful of what kind of industry comes here it .is the r i g h t kind. I have been all over ' t h e c o u n t r y. and frankly we live in the nicest place in it. I am very proud of that and want to keep it that way. I see it to my advantage, and- to very person's advantage to maintain it and to develop it with that perspective.

Tables were decorated with red and gold, the ; scciety's colors* and the flowers were red roses. The invocation was given by Mrs. Donna Lorch. and singing was led by Mrs. Emily Marti. ' After dinner, initiation ceremonies were held for two new members, Mrs. Jody Charier, librarian, at the University ot Arkansas, and Mrs. Agnes Walters, Spanish teacher at Woodland Junior Hi'gli School. Tha initiation was conducted by Mrs. Patricia Langslon, president; Mrs. Penny Fox, first vice president; Mrs, Mary Lou Miller, second vice president; Mrs. Grace Lawson, initiation chairman; and Miss Marcella Grider and Mrs. Tiieodora Halin, sponsors.

But the lure of kings, double jumps and the magic phrase "crown me," was too much- to resist. Tinsley came out ot retirement in 1970, winning the national championship that year. He successfully defended his crown this summer at Philadelphia. Tinsley has earned the right to play champion Walter Heller of Gary, Ind., next summer for the world title. He defeated Heller at -Lakeside, Ohio, in 1955 to capture his first world title. : be controlled locally although we all must do our part and help. It is a national problem and I think that we, in Fayetteville, have as 'good an end of it as anywhere in America. We at least have the maintain our a growing, prosperous area. It is definitely a national problem and it must be defeated on a national level," he said. The board of directors serve a dual role of policy making and administrative .responsibilities, according to Lindsey. "I. think, the board is a combination of-policy and administrative!

On the other hand.the board directs the city manager in a great many cases and there is a great degree of judgment and policy IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE ELECT BRUCE CRIDER for COUNTY JUDGE I stand on my record; horn in Greenland, Arkansas; Air Force veteran; owned and operated cattle and poultry farms and Crider Brothers Nursery.
