Dr. George P. Branscum, Little Rock dentist and chairman of the committee, made the offer here yesterday. He said the $1,000 offer would stand until Saturday. The statement issued by Branscum called the $1,000 ofer "a reward" to be paid if Faubus would: 1. Make public' all the applica- L ions he filed with the U. S. Poste Department. 2. Make public the Loyalty Oath he executed as a major in the U S. Army Reserve this year be fore announcing for governor. Branscum, practicing Little Roci dentist sinco 1944, said it woulc be remembered that Faubus as sorted publicly, "on more than on? occasion, in press interviews, in advertisements and on radio . anc television that the FBI has cleare ijjsim after an investigation of h.if connection with Commonwealth College." Defunct Commonwealth College operated at Mcna, Ark. during th 1930s and was declared "Com.mu iiii'.lic" after investigations by state and federal organizations. During tho runoff campaign J which Faubus opposed Coy.-,. Fran cis Cherry, Faubus was accuse! of having taken active part in th ^t&cho'ol's student activities. Faubus denied that he ever'had enrolled at the college'. He said-he had visited on the campus several days after receiving a scholarship offer, but did not remain as a- student. Faubus said that his back ground had been thoroughly...-investigated when he 'served as a major in" the U. S.. Army during World War II and again when he was postmaster at Huntsville. ' A Dr. Brnnscum charged, however, _«Hhat in a telegram from Washing-, "ton last Week, -the ptfpartnien^-of Justice publicly stated that neither the FBI nor any other diviv sion of the Department pf..Justice, had • investigated his (Faubus') Commonwealth College connection and that it never had celared him. "We deduce from that information," Dr, Branscum said, "that Mr. Faubus withheld from the Army, from the Postoffice Depart- ,^ment and from the Civil Service ^'Commission vital data about his record and activities." Branscum, who said he became interested in activities of the Citizens for Clean Elections, Com mitlee because of a .desire to maintain a country for throe growing sons, noted that Faubus had one week in which to "claim his reward." "It gives Mr. Faubus an oppor tunily, if he has the courage to do so, the receive the $1,000 rcwarc and reimburse the Democratic State Committee for a part of the money it is spending on his cam paign," Dr. Branscum said. "Besides the people of Arkan fas are entitled to the truth froir Mr. Faubus before the election.' Faubus, speaking from For Smith in a telephone interview with the Associated Press said: "I see no reason why I shoult play ihe game of Dr. Branscun JiDncl his so-called Citizens' Com i-niUce." The Democratic nominee for go ornor would not state when h would answer the charges but i dicated he would make a state merit soon.
