but casualty of the con tinuing battle between Republi can legislators and Gov Herschcl Loveless over state tax policy Democratic G o v Loveless called nine legislative leaders this week lo explore the possibil ity of a compromise program The Governor said he plannedlthe discussions of the committee to send to all members of the and the Governor at times Legislature a number of propos als he offered the meeting as al ternative revenue sources And States Troops Needed Answer to Sen Russell mPresident Eisenhower Saturday indirectly iccused Arkansas Gov Orval aubus of encouraging mobs of extremists to flout the orders of i federal court And the President said it would have been tantamount to acquiescence in anarchy and vould have resulted in dissolu ion of the union if he had not ordered troops into Little Rock o quell violence Eisenhower set forth his views in a telegram to Sen Russell D Ga who had accused the troops sent to Little Rock of high hand ed tactics reminiscent of Hitlers storm troopers On that point the President told Russell in replying to the senators protest I must say that I complete ly fail to comprehend your com parison of our troops to Hitlers storm troopers In one case mili tary power was used to further the ambitions and purposes of a ruthless dictator in the other to preserve the institutions of free government Sharp Criticism In sharp criticism of how the Arkansas state government han dled the situation in Little Rock prior to the callout of federal troops Eisenhower did not men tion Faubus by name But there was no mistaking that the criti cism was directed at the Cover nor The President wrote Russell My conviction is that had the police powers of the state of Ar kansas been utilized not to frus trate the orders of the court but to support them the ensuing vio lence and open disrespect for the law and for the federal judiciary would never have occurred Eisenhower obviously was al luding to the fact that Faubus called out the Arkansas National Guard Sept 2 and used it to pre vent Negro students from attend ing classes at Central High School in Little Rock The gov ernor has contended he ordered the guard out to prevent violence and to preserve law and order Faubus did not call off the guard until ordered to do so by Federal District Judge Ronald Davies Ei senhower federated the guard and also sent army troops into ittle Rock last Tuesday after at the high school on Mon day National Guard Use The President wired Russell further Saturday The Arkansas National Guard could have handled the situation with ease had it been instructed to do so As a matter of fact had the integration of Central High School been psrmitted to take place without the intervention of the National Guard there is lit tle doubt that the process would have gone along quite as smooth ly and quietly as it has in other Arkansas communities When a state by seeking ujr to Loveless said any plan based onjfrustrate the orders of a federal
