The governor-elect, who return- ed from a week-long Florida va- cation Sunday, was to confer with Budget Director Burton Logan to- day. Bellmon told regents for higher education Monday that colleges will receive increased funds dur- ing his increased taxes, Bellmon, meeting with the re- gents for the first time since his election, reminded them that he is opposed to any tax boost. -But he said collections are pushing up- ward from present taxes.

"As a matter of fact, I know we can it's just a matter of how much." His meeting with regents were cordial, even though he said budg- et requests by regents were far above the amount of revenue which can be appropriated and to be trimmed. Dr. E. T. Dunlap, chancellor, said later he believes-Bellmon sin- cerely wants to help colleges, as much as is possible with revenues available. Dunlap said at Bell- mon's request he will meet with the new governor soon to go over the budget request in detail.

State Aims For Clash S> Supreme Court Rules Toddy On Reapportionment OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The state Supreme Court decided Monday to rule on whether the 'constitution- al reapportionment' petition passed or failed Nov. 6, pos- sibly charting a collision course with a federal court. The state court, brushing aside I warnings that it was headed for a showdown with the federal court indicated'it would make; a speedy ruling in the case.

Burkhart Makes Motion The motion before :the federal court was filed by State-Treas- urer William A. BurkhartJ who al: so a member of the apportionment commission created by the peti- if it passed. The commission already has filed an order reapportioning the House and Senate on a popula- tion basis, and Burkhart 'asked the federal court to protect .the order from attacks of opponents. The Supreme Court handed down its ruling after hearing .a full day of arguments on a petition filed by a group of state senators who contend Edmondson did not have the authority to call a special elec- tion on the date of the-general election. Because of this, the sena- tors argue, the petition failed.
