Mills, D-Ark., faced with possible political repercus- ,sions of the Tidal Basin in- .cident, reported Monday that a re-cfcclion campaign com- "miltcc was being formed in his behalf. - Less than three weks before the general election on Nov. 5. .Mills also reported to the sccre- v tary of state's office that he ; had spent $1,051 -- all his own 'money -- on his re-election campaign against Republican ; "Judy Petty of Little Rock. ·'. Candidates for federal offices had to file reports Monday of their donations and spending .through Oct. 14. .' Mrs. Petty reported that she ihad collected $31,221 in contributions and had spent $23.233. Mills has not had a campaign .committee through which to 'channel donations, and his administrative assistant, Gene Goss, said he had not taken any iconlribulipns. Goss distributed a news release, saying Mills, "in fulfillment of his commitment to Common Cause," was reporting that two organizations were beginning work in his behalf, although neither had been active Oct. 14, the reporting deadline. PAPERS FILED One organization is an arm of the Pulaski County Democratic Committee, which filed papers with the secretary of state's office and the United States House of Representatives Monday saying it would work in Mills' behalf. Goss' statement said the arm of the county committee had collected a few small contributions and had printed and l '3e- gun distribution of bumper stickers. "The other organization is the Wilbur Mills Campaign Committee of which more will be heard later," the statement said. The $1,051 which Mills spent was for filing fees in the Democratic primary and the general election and for an airplane trip from Little Rock to Hot Springs.

John Paul Ham- merschmieU, R-Ark., who is icekitig re-election, reported Monday that he had collected 37,6V1 and had spent $33,809. Ie was unopposed in the Republican primary. Hammerschmidt's Democrat- c opponent, Bill Clinton of Fa- 'elteville, reported lhat he had lollccted 5115,280 and had spent $112,801. Much of that was in primary and a runoff primary, he Democratic preferential Ilinton \vas opposed by three ther candidates in the preferential primary. During the latest reporting period.

He previously LITTLE ROCK CAP) -- A supervisor in the state Social ·Services Division has sent his ·employes a tough note telling them about strict new work rules. The memorandum also tells the employes that their telephone calls at work will be monitored. The division will move its agencies Into the ,Blua Cross and Blue Shield Building In December because of impending construction on the Capitol mall. Charles W. McGlbbony, administrative supervisor of the Crippled Children's Section, sent the memorandum to em- ployes notifying them of regulations about work rules a n d personal conduct. He said Social Services Commissioner James B. Cartwright's office also would be housed in the building and that Carlwright would "personally check each section to see that those who fail to observe the regulations will not be long with us, 'I would be very sorry to lose any employe who fails to observe these rules -- but apparently I have but one alternative -- and 1 like my job," the memorandum said. McGibbony refused to discuss the memorandum of his agen c y ' s operations Monday "That's my business," he said and hung up the telephone. C a r t w r i g h t said smal agencies that were off the Capi tol grounds tended to operate more informally than others and policies must be uniform for everyone when 300 employ- es of different sections were brought together. "Apparently, that is Mr McGibbony's way of managing his employes," Cartwright saic of the memorandum. The memorandum told em ployes to advise their relatives and friends not to lesephone them at work or to come to the office during the day. APL Continues Testimony In Request For Rate Increase LITTLE ROCK (AP) -Reeves E. Ritchie, president of Arkansas Power Light Co., said Monday his firm had not advertised recently 'the fact that it offers different rates for use of electricity in winter and summer. .. The winter rates are lower than summer rates. This, he said, is an effort to improve the utility's load factor. Ritchie was the first witness in the state public Service Commission's public hearing on APL's proposed $38.6 million rate increase. North Little Rock City Attorney Sam Hilburn, one of the lawyers who cross-examined Ritchie, said that encouraging customers to use electricity in the olf-peak winter months would add to the peak demands in the summer months. A person who buys an electric water heater will use it winter and summer, he said. Ritchie said that was true. Psychopathy (CONTINUED I*ROM PAGE FOUR) Ellery Charming, spoke directly to what has become our n a t i o n a l a n d worldwide p r o b l e m -- t h e despair a n d depression that follows the loss of faith: "I do and I must reverence human nature. Neither the smears of a worldly skepticism nor the 'groans of a gloom theology disturbs my faith in its godlike powers and tendencies, f know how it is despised, how it has been oppressed, how civil and religious establishments have for ages conspired to crush it. "I know its history. I shut my eyes to none of its crimes. I understand the proofs by which despotism demonstrates that man is a wild beast, in want of a master, and only safe in chains. But injured, trampled on, and scorned as our nature is, I still turn to it with intense sympathy and strong hope." Ella Potee Winslow but-he said electric heating, for example, wouldn't contribute ti the summer peak. Ritchie questioned whether special rates for the con sumption .of power during off peak hours of the day woult have a significant impact 01 consumption patterns. H(wever, he said, APL was studying other methods to en courage a shift of some peak load demand to off-peak hours. .Ritchie also said APL hac offered off-peak pricing to in dustrial customers and most o them had elected not to take it For a plant to take advantagf of the off-peak rates, he said, i would have to operate arounc the clock or switch from day time to evening production Higher rates in peak hours coujd deprive some consumer, of the use ol cooling equipment he added. APL already is 'collecting the higher rates under bond. I must refund any amount of thi proposed increase that even tually is disallowed by the PSC or the courts.

T i h e state Accountanc Board, which is composed c. certified public accountants an which licenses accountants overspent its $34,700 appropria tion last year by about $3,000. The state Podiatry Exam ining Board overspent its $351 appropriation by about $60. Both were able to spend more than their · appropriations be cause the fees they chargec produced more money than the appropriations. But, the la\ prohibits spending more than the appropriation regardless o the amount of money on hand. The legislators were review ing budget requests of cash fund agencies Tor the next twi years when they learned of tin overspending. They didn't havi too much to · say about tin Podiatry Examining Board bu apparently thought the aceoun tants should know better. "Didn't you realize you wer violating the law?" Sen. 'Rober Harvey asked the accountants. "They're just CPA's," re marked Rep. Lacy Landers o Benton. A board official said th members had assumed the could spend beyond the appro priation because the mone was available. Hep. John E.

Extortionists Threaten To Blow Ttowers PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- An xtorttonist's threat to sabotage lower transmission towers in he Portland area has the luminum industry worried. A spokesman for the Rey- iclds Metals Co. said Monday hat even short-term simultaneous power blackouts at its luminum plants in Troutdale Ore., and Longview, Wash, could cost the firm $7 million. Reynolds has no way o dumping molten aluminum "rom its potlines in the event o a power loss, the spokesmui said. The metal would solidify and would have to be cleaned out by hand. "If we were to lose power for as much as four hours, those potlines would be down for weeks," he said. Representatives of other key industries in the Portland area said their operations would no bo substantially harmed if a Dower blackout lasted less thai 48 hours. The federal Bonneville Powei Administration, which dis :ribules power throughout thi Northwest, received a written demand .Friday that $1 million bn paid in return for the future safety of its equipment. Tin agency refused to pay the ran som demand. PREVIOUS HITS Eleven of the agency's trans mission lines in .Oregon hav been hit by dynamite blast since, Sept. 26 with damage esti mated at $150,000.

He also outlined · the state Bar Association's activities and planned support of APSLC. Wade, unable to attend last Saturday's meeting of the Rnard of Corrections because of lis father's illness, sent a written motion which called for appointment by the governor of a committee of citizens to inv e s t i g a t e t h e overcrowded conditions in the prison barracks.

The board voted to request a rehearing from the court and tabled Wade's motion. Wade's motion also suggested exploration of alternatives including expansion of present facilities, whether lemporary or permanent; expansion of parole and probation activities; development of half-way houses, and a system of restitution by offender to victim and implementation of the APSLC, and a volunteer program.
