E. "The basitTvruUoK?,' A& I SHC It, is -(I that personal bonds should not be ac] ccptqd in Arkansas. Surety bonds should be required—and none of us can imagine a legislature or governor relieving a surety company." There's your answer. It would have saved Bradley county and the Slate of Arkansas ?43,000 in tax funds collecl- cd but lost in the case of former Sheriff Lee, for the relief of whose bondsmen we denounced Governor Futrcll two days ago. XXX Mr. Palmer continues: "I think we should all insist upon a proper study being made- of governmental affairs in every division of Arkansas, and a special session of Ihe legislature should be called to correct conditions." On the editorial page today you will find an editorial Mr. Palmer wrote— and from which I cul off some paragraphs suggesting a special session. I'm not sure thai Ihe people would welcome even the relatively little expense of a special session from which great benefits might be derived. On the other hand, his letter pointing to a worth-while change in the law governing the bonding of county officials is a new and forceful plea for u special session. I give it to you for what it is worlh. The taxpayers turned in $43,000 in Bradley county—and it was lost.

WASHINGTON—(AP) — President Roosevelt Saturday ordered reductions in veterans' allowances totaling approximately 400 million dollars. Using the extraordinary power vested in him by the economy act, I he president shortly after 1:30 o'clock in the afternoon signed an order drafted by Lewis Douglas, director of the budget, and Frank T. Hines, veterans' administrator, who were present at the time.of the president's signature. The reduced rates are' effective July 1. Making public the lowered schedules, the president issued a statement in which he snid he did not want "any veteran to feel that he and his comrades arc being singled out to make sacrifices." "On the contrary," continued Mr. Roosevelt, "I want them to know that the regulations being issued arc ar integral part of our economy program embracing every department and agency of the government, to which every employe is making his or her contribution. "I ask- them to appreciate that not only.does their welfare .but also the welfare of every American citizen, d2- pend upon the maintenance of the credit of the government; and I ask that they also bear in mind that every citizen in every walk of life is being called upon, directly or otherwise, to share in this reduction." Money, Not Weight TOLEDO. — One wouldn't believe I that a woman could lose 153 pounds and still live. Yet Miss Agnes M. Hamilton, of New York, did—in English money.
