12 Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., Oct. 23, 1974 FAYETTEVILLI, ARKANSAS For Washington County Sheriff Meet The Candidates HERB MARSHALL · Herb M a r s h a l l , 34, '; Republican candidate f o r · Washington County sheriff, has .' accumulated 12 years active . duty in the military and aoout -five years experience with various civilian police agencies. : Marshall was born at Prairie Grove and is a Vietnam veteran. He fought in six major campaigns in Vietnam arid · served as instructor of South (Vietnamese agents in the field of intelligence. ; He received the Air Medal, the Bronze Star for Valor and the' Silver Star for the six- campaign effort. President Johnson awared the . members of Marshall's unit a Presidential Unit Citation for the battle of Khe Sahn. Marshall, presently security supervisor for Wal-Mart Stores, spent one year with the King County Sheriff's office in Seattle, Wash, and two years ·with the Issaquah police near Seattle. H e served with the Washington . County sheriff's office for 14 months in the roles of undercover narcotics agent and criminal investigator. He also spent eight months with ' the Fayetteville police as a dispatcher. SEEKS EXPANSION Marshall seeks expansion Snd better education of the deputy force, believes in broader use of the sheriff's posse as a tax- s a v i n g reinforcement and to local law enforcement, espouses stricter drug control In Washington County. "The sheriff now has an authorized force of 22 people This includes a matron, dis patcher and other Jail help, anc only 15 peopls are left to wort in tha field. Out of the nin units available, only four car are usually open for patrol now due to the fact that deputie are busy with matters :such a serving warrants and trans porting prisoners, 1 ' Marsha' said of the present deput force. "I would like to see ths offic expanded to 35 people with minimum of four criminal In vestigators and 12 field deputie for each shift, Tho rapid in crease of crime, especially i the urban areas of the county, shows that our force is now inadequate. It makes much better sense to prevent crime through proper patroling than to make a long list of arrests." Marshall said that as of Aug. 28, 1974, there were 509 reported felonies in Washington County during the year, whereas for the entire year of 1973 there were only 827 felonies. He believes that the rapid crime increase here and the number ot criminals who are never apprehended are a result of a lack of manpower in the sheriff's office. VOLUNTEER HELP Marshall referred to the use of the Sheriff's Posse as a money-saving extension ot law enforcement here. "There are presently 40 volunteers in the posse. These men are local ranchers and businessmen of high moral andards and they have con ibuted in many ways to o.ui immunity. They are now used search and rescue, traffic ntrol and public events, and County Agent Warns Of (affle Lice * Cattle lice begin building v as soon as the weather coo and by the end of Novembe qattle may be heavily infeset according to Randell Forres county extension agent for agr culture. , Forrest says the two types lice that attack cattle are th bitting and sucking lice. Ther are three kinds of sucking lie and these cause the greate loss to cattle with anemia an respiratory difficulties often d velop as a result of lice infest tions. should be examined outside th should be examined ouside th barn in the light. "Look in tl hair on the dewlap, around th eyes, over the withers an around the tail head," he sai Animals should be sprayed dipped when lice are found. Effective materials accordn to Forrest are Toxaphene, C Ral, Malathion, Marlate, Ko Ian, Delnav and Ciovap. On appiicaton of any of these usually sufficient, but if liv lice are present after two weel 'fe second treatment is recom mended. Dusts and back ru bers are also effective. He r commends that only Co-Ra Diodrin, Ciovap or Marlate b used for lice control on dair cattle. Dance Company To Perform Saturday Members of the University Arkansas Dance Company, an activity within the Departmen of Health, Physical Educatii and Recreation, will present public performance at 5 p.i S a t u r a d y in the Men Gynasium.

Admission to the perfo mance is $1. Barbara Jo Bray, assistan professor and program coo dinator, said the ail day wor shop participants will com from throughout the state a well as from Oklahoma an Missouri. ey are really quite an asset the county," Marshall said. "I would make better use ol is posse. Possibly they could atrol recreation spots on eekends and holidays or ac impany deputies on nigh dtrol. These men could be a rect communication betweei e -sheriff's office and the orking men of the cities anc ural areas." Marshall spoke of the county tug traffic in terms of stricte nforcement of the law agains ushers. "During the last threi months, the two largest druf rrests in Arkansas historj ere made in Fayetteville ackling the drug problem b; oing after the user is like ·ying to destroy a snake b: utting of Ithe tail. You havi get the drug pusher to help : drug user. For everj usher, there are a thousanc ictims," he said. He said that federal 'grants irnished by the Law En crcement Assistance Act, ar vailable for construction of ounty narcotics bureau here. BILL MURRAY Democratic sheriff candidate Bill Murray, 28, lias lived in Fayetteville for 23 years. A graduate of Fayetteville High School, he attended the University of Arkansas three years and was graduated from the Arkansas Law · Enforcement Academy at Camden. He has completed courses in drug identification offered by Murray feels that a definite mistake was made when the county remodeled the old jail building instead of constructing u new facility. He cites the m a n y cxapcs from the remodeled building as proof of its inadequate capacity as a criminal holding enclosure. POOR ADMINISTRATION ' Ihere is poor administration at the county jail now and no proper delegation ot authority. I would like to set up a rank of order in the office with the chief deputy as a captain and the three shift commanders as sergeants," he said. 'There would be a sergeant on duty at all times and these people would have the authority to make decisions. The sherifl is only one man and he cannol do the job by himself." "I see the sheriff as an administrator rather than a law enforcer. He delegates authority and oversees proper law en orcement over the entire county." Murray believes that court should reinforce 1 a w enforce ment by stiffening sentence: and limiting probation. "I would like to see at leas .ialf of t h e sentence served Before a criminal is eligible to parole. The penal system mus ic evaluated because it seem: ,vc are not rehabilitating thi the U.S. Justice Department and attended public safety courses at the University of Texas Technological Institute. Murray has also received instruction in criminal procedure from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the University of Arkansas School of Law. He served with the Washing ton county sheriff's office as ; deputy for two years and has since formed an organization providing business and industrial security in Arkansas Oklahoma and Missouri. Murray points to many difficult problems which now exist in the sheriff's office, seek reinforcement of t h e sheiff's effectiveness by ' stiffer cour sentences and probation limits and views the office of sheriff as An administrative rather than a law enforcement job. criminal. Crime does pay o there would not be such a rapi' icrease in crime here. "I feel the more severe th punishment, the more chance we will have of preventin crime. If we build up a ban reputation for law enforcemen here, criminals will know tha Washington County is no plac to be arrested," Murray believes that th salaries of the sheriff and hi deputies should be properly ac justed. SALARIES OUTDATED ".Salaries for the sheriff office are outdated. Suitabl salaries should be worked ou for all elected and appointe officials. Counties should hav the final say-so in adjusting th pay of law enforcement per sonnel within their area. Yo reduce the quality of the indiv dual you can hire when salarie re substandard," he said. "There is a problem now with lisnsc of funds in the feeding rogram because funds alloted o the sheriff are not recorded roperly," Murray continued. "Complete records of all eported incidents should be ept open to the public. T h a t ncludes public funds and office the way in is built be- ccords. This ·hicli confidence ween the public and the sher- ff, and this is also n w a y Murray said that of the 75 ounties in Arkansas, Washing- on County is the 75th in effec- ive law enforcement. "The citizens of the county ire tired of having a part-time iberiff. All complaints to my Dffice will be investigated mmedialely, and the office will staffed 24 hours a day," he las pledged. Farmers Loans Now Available Washington County farmers who ' suffered losses during adverse weather earlier in the year are now eligible for emergency loans .through the Farmers Home Administration (FHA), according to E. Leon Thurman, county supervisor for the local FHA office. Thurman pointed out that farmers suffered damage to apple and grape crops, cattle a n d broilers, f a r m homes, buildings, fences, timber and pastures during excessive rainfall between June 7 and 11. F H A emergency l o a n s , repayable in their entirety at an interest rate of five per-cent, will be made to farmers to cover losses resulting from designated disasters. Applications may be filed at the county office in the new F e d e r a l Building, 35 E. Mountain St., Room 30(5.' Applications for physical losses are authorized until Dec. 9 and for production losses until July 11, 1975, Thurman said.
