Terrall and his acting governor, S. B. McCall of El Dorado, a few years ago. It was the failure to comply with the law relating to publication of pardon applications and pclilions that tfavo Governor Terral the legal technicality through which he gained a supreme court decision invalidating the 'pardons issued by McCall while Ternil was out of the slate. McCall Seized Power Terral was attending a governors conference in Birmingham, Ala., when he received word that McCall, who as president of the state senate was acting as governor—there was no lieutenant governor in those days— had issued several pardons. The governor caught the next train back to Little Rock and promptly 'lad legal proceedings instituted to knock out the pardons.

X X X Governor Futrell says he is going to enforce the pardon publicity law. • ' I described the law, and how it was heint! evaded, in an editorial immediately after the Ruby Atkins expose, in 'Hie Star of April 25, 1931. "The abuse hits us particularly hard this year," the editorial said. "It was the granting of a furlough to a convicted bank embezzler that set off the explosion. But the injury to the commonwealth appears not in one isolated case, so much, as in the economic loss of court salaries, witness fees and all Ihe tremendous expense behind our judicial procedure, only to have the fiber action of the court nullified by the stroke of a pen at Little Rock." XXX As quoted at that timo, the Arkansas law on pardons provides: Section .'1371 (Crawford & Moses Digest): "In applications for pardons, etc. . . .

While complete unofficial returns were not available to The Star Wednesday owing to so many election officials having been called to circuit court at Washington, the count against the civil service act was approximately ten to-one. • •; • • The unofficial complete tabulation in Ward One showed 124 votes against the act,'to 9 for it—and similar tabulations were rumored from the other three wards. Act 28 set forth that it might be suspended in any first class city.upon petition of the voters to the city council, which would then be compelled to submit the issue to a vole at the general election. The petition and election wsre ; ordered some time ago, and Tuesday the civil service act was voided so far as Hope is concerned, or until a later election.

It had been hidden behind a rural scho.'lhouse, stripped of its wheels, headlights and battery.

Grand Jury Report The grand jury report follows: "To the Honorable Dexter Bush, Judge: "We, the grand jury for the April 1933 term, beg to report that we have examined into all the crimes that have come unto our knowledge and have returned indictments in all cases where we thought the evidence was sufficient. And in doing so we have examined 89 witnesses and returned into court 36 true bills.

Williams "went "before the grand jury and was indicted as one of the actual holdup men in the'robbery. Charley Chapman, leader of the bandits, 'was also indicted. Several threats against .-Williams have been reported. Jt is, believed that friends of Chapman have plotted to put Williams on the spot, since he is due to be a state witness against the other men accused in the robbery. • A reprisal against Williams for the valuable information he is said to have furnished officers came Monday night at Texarkana when a gang of armed men attempted to free prisoners from the Texarkana jail. It is believed by officers the gang was after Williams, who had been transfered Monday to the Hempstead county jail. A fake telephone call to the Texarkana police station saying that a store at Homan, Ark., 10 miles north of Texarkana had been robbed and asking that the sheriff's department be sent there, came from a pay booth at the—Union depot. An alert telephone operator notified the desk ser. geant that the call was from the depot and not from Homan. The desk sergeant returned to his office work. Suddenly realizing that someone was peering through a window at him from a stairway flanking the jail office, he grabbed a revolver, switched off the lights as he ran through the police station in time to fire a volley of shots at four or five men running do\in the jail alley. The men were believed to have had a sedan near the end of the alley and were thought to have escaped in it. The majority of the prisoners in the • jail are federal defendants under sent' ence or -awaiting trial on automobile theft and liquor t'.iarges.

Should a majority of the voters in the state favor repeal of the Eighteenth amendment, then, then the convention delegates—cne from each of the 75 counties—would be instructed to cast the entire vote of the convention for repeal, which is tantamount to a vote for the proposed Twenty-First amendment. Conversely, a majority vote for retention of the Eighteenth amendment The act provides that one may become a candidate for delegation, either for or against erpeal, upon a petition signed by,100 or more qualified voters. There will be only two candidates in each county—one for repeal and one against repeal.

Their only regret was that they were not placed in the Pulaski county jail. The women, Alta Markham, aged 19, Mrs. Essie Giimore, 41, and Mrs. Jewell Burton, 25, probably will be returned to the farm Wednesday. "The only reason we left the farm," Mrs. Burton said "is that federal prisoners there are given much more liberty than we state prisoners. We told the superintendent that we were going to leave if conditions did not change, and we left. The food, lodging and even the work at the farm are all right, but those federal prisoners Eeemed more welcome there than we." The three escaped early Monday night and late Tuesday night hailed a car in \vhich two men were returning to Little Hock. The men stopped their car outside police headquarters and called Night Chief Allen and Lieutenant Adkins. Mrs. Burton and Mrs. Gilmcre said they and Alta Markham spent Monday night and all of Tuesday in woods, afraid to ask for food or drink. Tuesday night, they decided to make their way to Little Rock and surrender at the county jail where ^they hoped to be permitted to complete their terms Gold Embargo to Be Lifted in U. S.

Secretary Woodin, of the Department of the Treasury, is drafting the order which will ease national restriction on gold, it was learned here Wednesday.
