State Prison
Under Study
In Arkansas
CUMMINS PRISON FARM, Ark.
{A) - Authorities said yesterday
that three skeletons taken from
unmarked graves here would be
sent to the FBI for tests that they
hope will shed some light on
whether the bones came from a
paupers' graveyard or a secret
burial ground for murdered in-
mates.
A, spokesman for Gov. Winth-
rop Rockefeller said no digging
for more bodies would be done
until the pathological tests are
completed at the FBI laboratory
in Washington. He estimated it
would take 10 days to three weeks
for the tests
"We want to see if there is
any evidence that these were
homicides or natural deaths," said
Bob Scott, the governor's prison
adviser.
The skeletons were found Mon-
day after Prison Supt. Thomas O.
Murton ordered an investigation
of long standing rumors among
inmates that convicts in past years
had been murdered and secretly
buried at the farm. One inmate,
Reuben Johnson, 59, says he help-
ed bury 10 or 12 inmates who
were slain.
Maj. W. C. Struebing, head of
the Criminal InvestigationdDivis-
ion of the State Police, declined
comment on the investigation yes-
terday, but reiterated that he
thought the bones were from an
old papuers' cemetery.
He had support from state Rep.
Loid Sadler, a member of the
Prison Board from 1945 to 1949
and again from 1955 to 1965. He
said he knew the prison pasture
where the bones were uncovered
Monday was a graveyard for un-
claimed bodies.
"Everyone in Arkansas of any
age knew those bodies were there,"
Sadler said. "I think it's a crime
and a disgrace for them to dig
thoseabodies up. My personal op-
inion is that it's a publicity
stunt."
Prison officials have not dis-
counted the possibility of it being
a prison cemetery, but Murtpn
said they had not found any
records of it.
W. P. Ball, who retired as state
pardons and paroles director late
last year, termed as "ridiculous"
Johnson's claim that about 20 in-
mates were killed during an es-
cape on Labor Day in 1940..

NEW YORK (P) - Everything'
points to it: Richard M. Nixon:
will announce today his candidacy
for the Republican presidential
nomination, and leave imme-
diately on a campaign swing
through New Hampshire, Wiscon-
sin and Oklahoma.j
The three states afford the first'
tests of the strength of the former1
vice president, leader in all the
polls of GOP voters. He carried all
to John F. Kennedy for the presi-
to oJhn F. Kennedy for the presi-
dency.
New Hampshire's first-in-the-
nation primary is March 12. The
Wisconsin primary follows on
April 2. Oklahoma holds the first
GOP state convention on Feb. 24,
to elect delegates to the August
Miami Beach convention.
A spokesman in Nixon's New
York headquarters said only that'
he will have a statement on his
candidacy, but the campaign
schedule left no doubt about- its
nature.

Nixon holds a news conference
in Manchester, N.H., on Friday.
Nixon's New Hampshire man-
ager, State Rep. David Sterling.
had said he would file the papers
in Concord to put Nixon's name on
the ballot.
The only other major c .ndidate
on the ballot will be Gov. George
Romney of Michigan, who re-
turns to New Hampshire Sunday
for a third campaign swing. There
may be write-in campaigns for
Gov. Ronald Reagan of Califor-
nia and Gov. Nelson A. Rocke-
feller of New York, both noncan-
didates.
Nixon has chartered a jet to
fly him from New Hampshire to;
Wisconsin on Monday, where he
has set up a news conference, tele-
vision interview and dinner speech
in Green Bay. On Tuesday he will
breakfast in Appleton, speak to
Wisconsin State University stu-
dents in Stevens Point, and ad-
dress a Lincoln Day dinner at St.
Mary's School in Fond du Lac.

on a program with former Gov,
Henry Bellmon, chairman of the

based in Washington. Bellmon is'
expected to announce soon as a
candidate for the Oklahoma Sen-
ate seat held by Democrat A. S.
Mike Monroney, and step down as
Nixon chairman. His replacement:
hasn't been decided. Sen. John G.:
Tower (R-Tex.), has been con-]
sidered, and might be co-chairman;
along with the more liberal former
Rep. Robert C. Ellsworth, 41. of
Kansas, now executive director of+

On Wednesday he will fly to Ok- write-in campaign going for the

Another Democratic group is
working on a write-in for Sen.
Robert F. Kennedy (D-NY), de-
spite his publicly expressed op-
position.
The Democratic side has four
entries.
Another final day entrant is pe-

years ago.

name also was filed on the final
day as entrant for the Republican
preference roll.
The other entrants are largely
unknowns.
Former Gov. George Wallace of
Alabama, who has been appearing
across the nation as a candidate
for the presidency, also failed to
file in New Hampshire.

Democratic Triumph
The House votes broadening
the bill constitute a triumph for
Rep. Leonor E. Sullivan (D-Mo.),
chairman of a consumer affairs
subcommittee, who insisted on a
farther reaching measure. than
the Senate version.
The House voted 135 to 19 to
include revolving credit in the
disclosure by annual percentage
section.
Johnson's board of Economic
Advisors is expected to release
their annual economic report to-
day. The report will list the
country's growth over the past
year and issue several predictions
for fiscal '69.

(Continued from Page 1)
The faculty are also at odds
with the administration over the
financing of their facilities. It is
estimated that the cost of a fac-
ulty center would be $2-3 million.
Funds for this purpose can be
raised by donation, state appro-
priations, or by users of the fa-
cility.
To date, no donor has contrib-
uted any sizable sum of money
for the construction of such a
center. Although it was included
on the list of priorities of the
$55M program, only $4474 was
contibuted.
Development of Radrick Farms
into a University recreational fa-
cility is a possible solution. This
land was given to the University
by an anonymous donor and is
being used as a golf course. In
1964, Regent Litta Matthaei gave
the University funds for the pur-
chase of 138 acres of land adja-
cent to Radrick Farms. This land
contains a house which could be
used for some faculty functions
until funds are obtained for a
larger building.
State Interests
' UIn view of many urgent needs,
the University is reluctant to ap-
propriate funds for a facility
which would be primarily for fac-
ulty use. It is felt that a request
for state appropriations for such
a purpose would be harmful to
the interests of the University.
University President Robben
Fleming, at a meeting with an ad
hoc committee of SACUA last De-
cember, observed the declining
membership of the University
Club and pointed out, "There are
a great many issues facing the
University on which there are
burning demands. The adminis-
tration should focus on them,
rather than on things in which
nobody is interested."
Faculty members while for the
most part willing to support bet-
ter facilities of some kind, are re-
luctant to pay the initial cost.

Many consider faculty facilities
to be fringe benefits to which
they are entitled.
A spokesman for the ad hoc
committee said, "The committee
is not taking a bargaining posi-
tion seeking common facilities in
lieu of salary increases. Rather,
we would like the administration
to consider and decide what fa-
cilities it thinks would be appro-
priate."

reports drug violations directly to
the city police. McKay, on the
other hand, has referred three of
his six "suspects" to the Univer-
sity'8 Bureau of Psychiatric Serv-
ices.
Another problem which the
housing staff faces is 'detection of
users. As McKay says, "Our staff
is not trained to distinguish mari-
juana, odors from others." And
the possibility of busting into a
suspected room 'is surrounded by
legal questions.
There are other drugs, of
course, in current use on campus.

and use each year near exam
time, and the most recent discov-
ery is amyl nitrite, a non-pre-
scription drug available in many
pharmacies.
An amyl nitrite capsule, called
an "amy" or "popper" in popular
jargon, is legitimately used for
heart patients, and creates a
floating sensation when opened
and sniffed through an empty
Vicks inhaler. But local druggists
have personally clamped down on
distribution.
One druggist put it quite suc-
cinctly. "I began to wonder when
all of a sudden all these kids
claimed they had sick grand-
mothers at home," he said.
