For Board Of Directors Meet The Candidates United Fund Campaign Goal 'Within Reach: JACK MONCRIEF Jack Moncrief, 51 who has operated a photography studio in Fayetteville for 17 years, has filed for n position on the Fayetteville City B o a r d of Directors. In his bid for Position 4 he is opposed -by Claude A. (Al) Hughes. A native of Oklahoma City he attended tho University of Tulsa and Cornell University and majored in business. Currently he is president of · Moncrief's Inc. which 'he glarted after 'selling his photographic studio here this ·· past year. Moncrief has been active in civic organizations. .He served as past chairman of the Contact Club' of the Chamber of Commerce, is a past board ttiemeber of the Kiwanis Club and past · president of the FayetloviUe Relief Association. He is still active In the latter association, He also has worked with the U n i t e d Fund Drive a n d prepared slide presentations for several years. He Was a charter member and chairman of the former Committee on Drug Education. (CODE). Moncrief Is against a city Income tax. "I feel. the same as I would about a city sales tax. Inflation is making it extremely difficult for mosi people to get by these days and government, at various levels has taxed us so heavily through visible and invisible taxes it is difficult fpr the average working person to make ends m e e t . I would . certainly b e a g a i n s t a n y additional taxes," he said. The candidate does not fee', that ha is qualified, at this time, to decide on what cuts might b e - m a d e in city services because., of inflation. "Ir essence, I know what I woulc not cut and I feel that prlorites should be placed. City streets need maintenance and improve ment because we have such bat streets. Our streets are old anc continually in need of repair I fee! that the salaries, of city employes have to be niaintaineu and they should be paid a living wage so we can continue the services we have," he said. The board of directors policy making body aecordinf to Moncrief. "I feel the boan should make policy. We havi a first class city manger in Don Grimes and it should be th board's job to advise him and set the policies for him to t'aur out. They should not interferi with his work and make it more difficult for him to do the job we are paying him to do," he laid. "I favor the city manage: form of government, very definitely. I feel it tends to more efficient government am I would not want to go bacl. to the old style of mayor-cnunci where politics entered into i ao highly," he commented. Moncrief docs not have an 1 pre-conceived ideas about ex panding or cutting city services "I don't really know. I wouli have to see what the city lia in mind. I can't make an ofl the-cuff- statement when I hav no background," he said. Moncrief has been requests, to seek the position. "I do fee that bcause I have been small businessman in Fayet teville for 17 years I have a understanding of the problem of the city. I know Just abcu everyone in town and I sub scribe to the values of honest .anc! integrity and would operat ' that way on the city board, realize that these values ma not be current today in a lo of places, but I live by them 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 {he ·problems and opportunities facing Fay^tte- ville. 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. am under no obligation to any 1 roups or 'special interests. I ave no reason to be on .the oard to achieve personal 'gain, nd I don't own any property iat I want re-zoned," Moncrief lated. Moncrief feels that board members should be from vari- .33 geographical areas over the ity and; from different walks t life. "I feel I can represent he average person," he said. Moncrief feels his ability to et things idone is an asset. *'I may not have the influence of nany people, but I know who a talk to and know a lot of eople," ho said. "There are many shades of ray and lifo is not all black nd whits. IE you make t h e rade you have to compromise, ifou give a little here and take little there, ff you don't you re out in tne cold all of the ime. If you insist on a hard ine all of the time, pretty soon o one will talk to you and ompromise is the name of the ;ame.

' · "The federal government has expanded its functions not only ;o the extent of burdening its taxpayers but also to impair its ability to perform primary "unctions such as maintaining a sound monetary system,'* hi said. "Within this first priority o moral values, we- must return to the American traditions o constitutional government, indi vidual freedom and initiative work incentives, moral respon sibility, and, with our return t Hie true traditions of America we will restore a prosperous productive economy."

Jones, a Pine Bluff, banke and lawyer, said Bumpers ha stated that Arkansas -.-didn 1 have any problems. · tha couldn't be cured by money. "All the billions accrued b; the oil-producing countries \vi. not buy for a single one o them a free society or prbvid'. a single Arab with the individ ual freedom which American have so long taken for grantei and are now so near to losing,' Jones said.

This means that next Sunday's puzzle will be worth $270, plus $100 in bonuses. If you haven't worked the puzzle, try it. . . .if you have worked it, try it again. You may be a winner! : Here's the Correct Solution with an explanation of answers to last week's puzzle CLUES ACROSS: 1. WALKING not talking. The clue suits something one can simply indulge in to whatever eextent one cares; WALKING is favored, since talking depends more or less on other people. 7. TOPIC not tonic. The clue has more point in the case of TOPIC, since a tonic is hardly e'xpected'to be very palatable. Also, the phrasing: "a certain bitterness about " suits a sore or touchy TOPIC; a tonic may simply taste bitter in an ordinary', straightforward sense. 8. RUNNING not ruining. When an incompetent Is RUNNING things, there's bound to be trouble (in consequence). The ruining of things, whether or not by an incompetent, is trouble. 9. PATHS not baths. The clue is true of PATHS, which must lead somewhere. Since any size of bath is usable, the idea of a certain necessary length is less apt in the case of baths. Laths not favored, 15. ODD not old. The clue's inclusion of "eventually" has more point for ODD. It's possible at any time that an old b"Hppgooy, be suitable replacement. An ODD (unrrtolch'ed) button has' no evident usefulness, though "eventually" it may suit something you have at that time. · ' 16. MAP not mop. The clue suits something so rarely used that you've forgotten what you've done with it! A MAP, possibly of an area little visited,""Is more apt than a mop, which is normally used regularly. 19. FARCE not force. Since a force may be overwhelmingly strong, the clue is more necessarily true of a FARCE. 22. REGARD not reward. As an answer, "REGARD" makes better use of the clue's phrase: "in general". There simply is little reward for "a writer who doesn't get much work published". .. .i.e., one who, more or less, fails. Such a writer may 'be well REGARDed by some, but not "in general". 23. SAWN not sewn or sown. The clue is more firmly true in the case of SAWN. One can upick and sew anew, or make fresh preparation and sow properly, but SAWING is the sort of thing done once and for aN. CLUES DOWN: 2. ABUSE not amuse. The clue suggests something unworthy to do. To ABUSE people may help certain individuals to "feel important". To amuse /people (as an entertainer) can be quite important. 4. NINE not none. .There Is a certain casualness about the clue's phrase "might happen to," which favors NINE. The number of clues found by the detectives might "happen" fo be NINE; they might, rather, "be able to find none (despite considerable efforts). 5. LOYALTY not royalty. The broad, open nature of the clue favors LOYALTY. Royally is the only really important to the monarchies in question. 10. PREMISES not promises. Promises, if not actual guarantees, offer something more positive than mere "hope". T, ]. W.OpD. not mood. "Certain" workers use WOOD and may well be happier using good WOOD. Practically all workers are influenced by mood. Food not favored, 12. LADY not lads. The clue's word "young" is required for LADY rather than lads. Also, the moderating words: "a bit" favors LADY. (A young LADY is not imagined to extend a man al lennis greatly, as lads may well do.) 17. BREAK not bread. "BREAK" is ths more realistic , consideration. Even for a mere snack, nobo.dy .would take, simply, a little bread. 21. NOW not new. "NOW" is comprehensively ap». It's a question of what styles are being worn at present, whether or not they happen to be newly arrived.
