The possibilities of a grand jury in Pontotoc county have been discussed for several weeks, but until last week no action had been taken toward getting one in this area. A number of copies of the petition were distributed to almost every minister in Pontotoc county and they in turn presented the facts of the present situation to their congregation asking their opinion. Hundreds of persons over the county have placed their names on the petition that asks that a grand jury be called and impaneled for investigation of various situations that might be existing in Pontotoc county.

March 18— izP}—-Speaker Rayburn said today he is hopeful of house passage of legislation extending the draft beyond the May 15 expiration date.

He said the president discussed selective service, appropriations and atomic energy legislation with his congressional “Big Four at their regular Monday meeting. The other members of the quartet are senate majority Leader Barkey (Ky) Senator McKellar (D-Tenn), president pro tempore of the senate and house majority Leader McCormack. WASHINGTON. March 18. ET* —The idea of a six-week compromise extension caught the fancy of some senators todaf as pressure grew for keeping the draft alive. Selective service now is due to expire May 15. The six-week period would carry it to July I. With the senate military com-rnittee set for a full dress review or the subject tomorrow, there were these developments: I. Secretary zens that if they didn’t have an opportunity to sign a petition Sunday that any minister in the county can be contacted and will have a petition that can be signed. To be eligible to place their name on the petition, a person must be a legal resident of the county and must also be a tax payer. When county ministers met last week, various situation and acta were placed before them at which time they decided that now is the time for action to be taken by tho people in this county who feel that various public officials should be investigated.
