Rep. Boyce Alford of Pine Bluff presented copies of two agcs of excerpts from the Traveler to members of the Joint Interim Committee ^ublic Health. Welfare m«! Thursday. ' Gilbow, Hughes Sued By Former Counly Employe A $1,200 c i v i l suit against Washington County comptroller Lonnie Gilbow and County road Supt.

Several members of the committee agreed with Alford as he moved that the Legislative Council be asked to direct the proper legislative committee to investigate. M o s t of the excerpts presented were from a column entitled "Stoned" written by Jack Stone, the pen name of Traveler staff member Eddie Eifling. David -Baer of Little Rock, Traveler editor, said he was "rather disturbed" about the attack on the column, saying it was bringing "a rather small part of the paper into focus." Baer said he felt a columnist should "have freedom of expression" adding that if Stone was a newswriter he could understand the concern. Baer, who has been editor since April, is already trouble with the University's Board of Publication over the language used in the newspaper. Baer said he bad been told t complaints continue the board will consider his replacement, which he was not paid. Gulhery claims that he invested 224 hours of his time and labor in the repair work and estimates reasonable compensation for the work at $5 per hour. Guthery said that in lieu of a casli payment form the defendants, he agreed lo accept one Ford tractor. The tractor, Guthery staes, was delivered in July, 1972 by a county truck and employes. The suit also states that Guthery purchased a new radiator, carburetor, starter and battery for the tractor. It alleges that the tractor was taken back by the two defendants in the fall of 1973. after a Grand Jury investigation. Guthery says that Gilbow and Hughes have constantly refused any payment for his services. He now asks that the two men reimburse him $1,200 for his past labor, plus court and attorney cost.
