FORT SMITH — Dr. R. E. Crigler, chair­man of the Arkansas Tu­ber­cu­lo­sis San­i­to­rium board, said Tues­day that he would con­tinue to rec­og­nize J. H. My­ers of Black Rock as a Board mem­ber. He said that this meant he could not rec­og­nize John Sorensen of Lit­tle Rock, whom Gov­er­nor Rock­e­feller tried to ap­point to My­ers’ po­si­tion. An at­tor­ney gen­eral’s opin­ion is­sued Mon­day said that the gov­er­nor could not re­move a Board mem­ber by let­ter be­cause statutes pro­vided for ouster for cause only, and af­ter a hear­ing.
