Noland is running for position three and is opposed by T.C. Carlson. Noland and his wife, Mrs. Eunice Noland, have four children. He was born near Peoria, 111. and has been a member of the board for two years. He is a professor in the Animal Science Department at the University of Arkansas. He holds a Bachelors and a Masters degree from the University of Illinois and a PhD from Cornell University, all in the field of animal nutrition. He is a Methodist and a member of the Lion's Club. Noland feels thÂ»t a city in come tax is rot too feasible at present and might be a detriment to the long term development of the city. "The city can't do too much about inflation," Noland said, "because of the prices we have to pay at our r end. We can, however, continue to be just as efficient as possible in the . operation of the city, making sure that the expenditures we make are necessary. I think our present city manager is very Â·' careful in this respect." As far as possible cuts are concerned, Noland said thai 'Â·Â· "we should look at the tola' budget whenever the possible cuts become necessary." He feels that the board is de ; finitely a policy making body Â· and not an administrative one. Â· "A transportation system i almost non-existent i n N o r t h - west Arkansas," Noland said. : "I think this is one area we Â· really need to look at and ; maybe, it might help solve -. some of our problems, such "Â· traffic and parking. We migh ' experimentally explore the nee : and potential users of a trans '. portation system, such a ,, commuters and retired persons - "Something we definitel '; have to explore are ways t - get rid of our solid waste. Thes . problems have to be resolve " before too much longer and w ; need to get started now." 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. Noland feels he is qualified for the position because he has lived in the city for some 23 years and because he has been serving on the board for the past two years. "I feel I'm con- ersant enough to understand le city's problems. As for a latform, I'm very much inter- sled in seeing an o r d e r l y , alanced growth for the city ad against widespread large cale development when we on't have the wherewithal to upport it." When asked if he had an axe j grind or any pet projects, Poland replied "I don't feel that 'm anything but a citizen of 'ayetteville and can, hopefully, elp solve some of the city's roblems." Noland said he favors the 'resent form of city government. "I feel that this form the city manager type) is so much superior to the mayor- :ouncil form that we were because "being a native here...I didn't like what I saw over the years. The push seems to be for bigger and better and I m not convinced that bigger and better is always best." He said he feels he can lend the city some of the experience he gained while in the military and at the UA. As tor a platform, Carlson said "I'm plugging for priorities." He listed three things which lie felt should be the top priorities for the city, public safels', public utilities (water, sewer and sanitation) and public honesty. He said he is running to represent all citizens and will work to better the situation of retired persons. When asked if he favors the city manager form of government, . he replied "theoretically, the city manager form is the best. But, where any one, or a combination of, city directors step in and disrupt the city manager's activities, this form By THE ASSOCIATED 1'RKSS Today is Thursday, Oct. 17. the 230th day of 197-1.

Me is opposed by aul Noland, an incumbent. Carlson was born in Fayette- lle, spent 30 years in the-U.S. ir Force retired as a Colonel id relumed to Fayetteville -in 71. He has a degree in busi- ESS administration from the Diversity of Arkansas, and ttended several schools while the military. He is a Roman atholic. Carlson feels that a city in-1 ome tax is a source of revenue 'hich is long overdue. "We ave many people who work i the corporate limits of the ity of Fayetleville, but don't ve here. They, by merely eing here, are receiving city ervices. but they don't pay for t. Therefore, I think it's a long verdue tax." He says thai the first step i fighting inflation is to esla.b- sh a list of goals or priorities or the future. "My observation ver the last two years has iceri that this city has never lad clearly slated priorilies. This lack of printed priorities, ilaced where every citizen can ee them, has worked to the wardship of all the citizens. Careful examination of our sys- cm can help cut expenditures. Vith good leadership, estab- ished priorities and gooc organization you can reduce the cost of government." Carlson views the board policy making body. lie believes that a city, il they can afford it, should be a self-contained operation. Carl son pointed out that he believes :he city can save money by hiring its own engineers and mechanics, instead of havinj the work done commercially, a: is now done is some cases. Carlson said he is running fo office for three reasons because he doesn't feel an candidate should run unop posed; lo give his wife anothe vote (Mrs. Pat Carlson running for position six) an won't work. If you have strong city manager and Board of Directors who recognize their role, and these are two big 'ifs', .1 prefer Ihe city manager form. If these two conditions can't be met, there is no choice but to operate under the mayor form." Father Fights Too Much Christmas TUSTIN, Calif.
