H, Washburn- N OW that beer has come back to our neighboring state of Louisiana a poet has sprung up at Arkana, on the border. He is C. C. Burton, formerly of Hojie, and he writes Ed McCorkle the following outburst in lyrical prose, tinged with a certain sadness: "*""' Funding Operation to Include Paying Off oHVarrants Bond Board Has to Find Something Smaller Than $100 Bond $100,000 PRO VIDEO Main Problem Is Exchange of 146 Millions of Old Bonds LITTLE ROCK—W—The new State Bond Board, composed of Governor Futrell. «ate Treasurer Roy V. Leond and State Comptroller Griffin Smith, took steps Friday to begin refunding Arkansas' state highway debt of 146 millions under provisions of Act 167 of 1933 (the Ellis bill), which authorized issuance of 25-year 3 per cent bonds to be exchanged for all existing bonds issued on account of highway construction. It was indicated that n check of records of the Highway Department, the auditor's office and the treasurer's office will bo made to determine the amount of highway vouchers and warrants outstanding February 1, 1933. The new law provides that such obligations shall be refunded on the same basis ns bonds. The legislature appropriated J100.000 to pay in cash old amounts in excess of the denominations in which the new bonds will be Issued, and provided that . - iiye-iearjhotes shall ;be issued in,payr """ment of interest accruing" 10' May 1 this year, when all the refunding bonds will be dated. Mr. Leonard pointed out that several thousand persons hold highway warrants issued for labor or materials in 1931 and 1932. Hundreds of these warrants call for amounts of less than $100, the smallest denomination in which the new bonds will be issued. The board discussed possibility of financing such small warrants in some JjPi'nnncr that would not require the holder to pay to the state the difference between the amount of the warrant and a bond for $100, but no decision was reached. To Start Exchange Soon. The treasurer wus instructed to prepare the form of the bond, which will he submitted to the board soon after which proposals will be received for printing the bond forms. As soon as bonds are ready, the board will invite holders of nil forms of highway obligations to exchange them. Mr. Leonard has received about $4,000 of direct state highway bonds for refunding and said that several holders of road improvement district bonds, submitted for refunding under the 1932 law, have indicated that they would accept whatever refunding plan the state offered. Governor Futrell said he knew of a block of $40,000 of state highway bonds that will bo offered as soon as the board's plans are completed. Approximately $13,000,000 of road im- irovomuil district bonds were rcfund- V U under Act 15 of 1932 special session before funds for that purpose became depleted. Bonds amounting to about $12,000,000 had been submitted for refunding, but most of them have been returned to the owners. Opposed hy Marketing Firm The Ellis act has been bitterly as- ' sailed by representatives of Halscy,' Etuart and Company, which marketed all of the direct state bonds issued since the beginning of the Martieau road program in 1927. The holders of the $84,000,000 of these direct obligations contended that the state gave them a prior lien on all gasoline tax and motor vehicle license revenues, to the exclusion of holders of other obligations assumed by the state, wh obligations assumed by the state, which included $47,000,000 of old road improvement district bonds taken over in 1U27. Among the holders of I lie direct state bonds arc the states of Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Nevada. Their governors complained to Governor Fulrcil, and an exchange of correspondence has followed. across the state line in Loulsi. u two-room house has been erected. It is R clean little house, and its newness and cosiness makes one think how happy they might bo living there ns newlyweda (A Lltllc Grey Home in the West). "The place Is shaded by large white- oak and hickory trees; the clenned- off place around the house is covered by new spring grass and a few wild violets and sweet-williams; in the trees birds have started new nests, and they sing because they arc happy —there where all Is so peaceful and clean. "Coming out of Arkansas, motorists can see a quarter of a mile ahead of them the little house, as It is kind of in a curve— Jocks like it is built right across the highway. A sign near the house redds, 'First Chance State Line Beer Garden," and coming out of Louisiana the sign reads 'Last Chance.' "We are wondering if the song birds will move their nests and how soon the violets and sweet-williams will fade and be forgotten." XXX I congratulate Mr. Burton. Whatever the sentiment for beer— may America always remember to stand up for the rights of the songbirds, the violets, and the sweet-wil- liams. XXX Circus parade Friday. One lone elephant. He looked mournful and lost—with ^no other elephant to hold his tail. XXX Folks at the circus were delighted with the trained seal that clapped his hands (fins) in applause of other acts. • A great animal-trainer writing in Collier's magazine last winter told how this new trick was discovered. A seal found it all by himself. He clapped his fins together in "applause" whenever his meal of fish was about to be brought on. So the tircus management arranged to feed iho seals immediately after the last tict—thus this seal always gave the last act n great big "hand." SNOW Runaway Pals of Quarter Century United by Circus After 26 Yeare, Dr. L. M. Lile Finds Other Running Concession on Dill's Lot Dr.FJ.PiGkell Goes Will Be Chief Surgeon of Hospital at Brewton, Near Florida Line Dr. Frank W. Pickcll left for Brewton, Ala., Saturday morning, where he will engage In the practice of medicine and surgery. Ho has accepted charge of the only hospital in that cUy, u place of about 5,000 population in southeast Alabama, about six miles from the Florida state line. It is reported that there are no other operating surgeons in that city. Mrs. Pickcll is now visiting relatives in Baton Hougc, and will join her husband on his trip to Alabama Saturday. Dr. Pickcll was accompanied by his brother-in-law, B. W. Simmons, of Opp, Ala., who had prevailed upon him to come to Brcwlon to practice. Dr. Pickell has been practicing in Hope for the past two years. First with Josephine hospital, and since last November in his own offices in First National Bank building. He and Mrs. Pickell had made many friends in Hope, who wish him success in the new field. Today's Statgraph ONE BROUGHT BACK Country Doctor Retrieved His Son—Other Boy Went On No Hope boys are missing Saturday, a checkup of police and school authorities indicated, although the circus pulled stakes at dawn, and left in high-powered trucks for Arkadelphia. The lure of the Big Top, however, along with n well-developed case of spring fever, coupled with a budding independence of spirit, which might give promise of success in future ycnrs, furnishes a combination that is all but inescapable to one or more youths in any town. They Ran Away Just such an incident in the boy- nood of one of Hope's successful professional men, came to light Friday. He was the son of a country doctor, n a town bf northeast Arkansas. He was 13 years of age; his chum was the older by a year or two. The two boys left home one spring day, as many boys arc wont to do, although they usually come back before they arc missed from the dinner table. There was no circus in that immediate section of the state, but the boys had high hopes of finding one. When the boys didn't siiow up after several' days, the parents asked the help of police In several cities to help locate them. The country doctor pick. ed,.up.the ttailsind^soon overtook his offspring. " **• "No circus career for you, my son," he said. "You're going to be a doctor, just like your dad." The other boy eluded his parents and the police; and throughout all the 26 yqars following that escapade he had never seen his cum—until Friday. After Quarter Century Ewcl Carroll is the name of the older boy. The doctor recognized him on the streets of Hope Friday. They had a long visit after a quarter of a century. Of course the doctor had often wondered what had happened to the other half of that youthful run- a-way team. "I'm running a concession with the circus, Luther," said Caroll, for the junior member wus Dr. L. M. Lilc. "It is one of the largest with thii show. I've been in the concession business for some time now," POEEIGKT TI2ADE • FLUCTUATION?

Return of Bar to National Capitol Recalls Old Days Expelled 30 Years Ago, - Liquor .Comes Back to . Liquor Comes Back to Restaurants of Congress THE ORATOR'S OIL Some Drank Right Smart —Others Behaved Like Gentlemen By RODNEY DUTCHER NEA Service Writer (Copyright, 1933, NEA Service, Inc.) WASHINGTON—Ancient memories of the -old Capitol bar floated back as it began to appear that beer again would be served in the house and senate restaurants. But only to a few. The lone member of congress whose service dates back to the days of the bar is Representative Edward W. Pou of North Carolina, 70-year-old chairman if the house rules committee. He came here in 1901. The bar wont out in 1903, Mr. Pou remembers the institution, but he never paid mucii attention to it because he wasn't interested. So one must rely on the memories of a few of the oldest capitol employes. There were judges of good whisky here'in those days. If you wanted a favor from a congressman it was more or less the accepted thing to invite him for a drink. Some members seldom made a speech without first getting slightly "oiled." And all the surviving authorities agree that the choice stock of liquors and wines at the house bar was one of the boasts of our nation's capital. ni'l>^ii^mftfc»te l f drinking •• ception 'and table drinking -the rule. The house bar was in the house restaurant, just under the house chamber and it was operated by three bartenders. It had a brass rail. Some old-timers remember it as running the length of one end of the room and others as a horseshoe mahogany jutting out into it, with about 35 feet of leaning space. But it was so well patronized that anyone who wanted to drink in comfort went off to a table, leaving the bar primarily to those who wanted one or two quick ones. Mark of a Gentleman Business was never dull, as far as anyone can recall. Members, lobbyists and constituents kept a brisk trade going. Night sessions sent large throngs to the ( bar. Rye highballs and gin rickeys were favorites, although there were plenty of beer drinkers and wine drinkers. Whisky sold at 10 cents a glass. The senate never had a real bar, although liquor was served at tables and there was a marble serving table "F. D."

Next to the President and Mrs. Roosevelt stands Vice President John Garner. At the extreme right is Joe Cronin, manager of the Nats. It takes the breath out of a girl tg see all her bubbles burst.

Tennessee Beer Bill Signed; Million Tax NASHVILLE, Tonn.—(#>j—Governor Iill McAlistcr late Friday signed into aw the bill making 3.2 per cent beer cgal in Tennessee on May 1. This is he first modification of the state's bone dry" law since it was enacted n 1909. A tax of $1.20 a barrel is provided and the estimated $1,000,000 annual cvcnuc will be divided one third to he state, one third to the counties qually and one third to the cities on a population basis. The state's share will go for school purposes. where a senator might be served standing if he liked. All the old-timers—including William Tyler Page, now minority clerk, and Joseph J. Sinnott, house chief doorkeeper—insists that few members were ever to be observed in a condition that might be described as "stewed." "Having a few drinks and being able to"'carry your liquor was then considered the mark of a perfect gentleman," Page recalls, "and most representatives were perfect gentlemen." Went Out 30 Years Ago The passing of the bar 30 years ago was bad business all around, according to William A. Hawkins, 68, dean of the house waiters who has served in the restaurant for 48 years. "I remember it just as well as if it were yesterday," the old negro says. "Some of those representatives had to bo pretty well 'oiled' before they could make a speech. They would go onto the floor to make a speech and then hurry back here to get another drink. "The sale of liquor was all that ever made this restaurant pay. "After they stopped us selling liquor we had lo serve it in small coffee cups so the visitors would thing the PlotonlLMnvoy Bared in Mexico Attempt to Wreck Train of Josephus Daniels Foiled—Rail Removed , MEXICO CITY.—(/P)—Police disclosed Saturday that an attempt wSs made Friday to wreck the train on which Josephus Daniels, new United States ambassador, is on his way io the capital.'

Details of the protest were not made public, but Berlin dispatches indicated that offense wa's taken particularly in connection with an impassioned speech by Austin Chamberlain, former foreign secretary. Chamberlain described Germany's new spirit as, "the worst of the old Prussianism, with added savagery, national pride and an exclusiveness which cannot allow to any fellow- subject not of pure Nordic birth equality of rights or citizenship witli- in the country to which they belong." Dynamite, 3 Men Seized; Foil Plot Train - Wreckers Believed Held After Raid—400 Sticks Dynamite (Continued on page three) What Legislature Did XXX By The Associated Press Editor's Note :— Thin in u series of articles explain'my acts of the 1933 yencral assemply. Aci No. 21 Chancellors were given broad powers to fix the time ot sale of property under foreclosure decrees under Act No. 21 o f!933, which was the administration bill for relief of hard- pressed mortgagees. The act provides that answers to suits of foreclosure shall not be duo until three months after service of summons, and further that decrees of foreclosure shall not be granted except during the first three days of the regular terms of chancery court. In fixing the time of sale under a ,dont of the club, was a feature of'the Kiwanis club meet in the.Ne'wr Capital Hotel dining room Friday night. Dr. 'Pickell left Saturday for Brtwton, Ala.,' where lurwill engage in his profession.' , - * ' \ * „ J. R./Floyd succeeds to-the club presidency. Sid Bundy, 1 A. E. Stonei quist and Charles Dana Gibson were nominated candidates for the place of vi'ce-president, now open. "Hope people may riot fully appreciate their municialy-owned water and light system," said B. M. Simmons, lawyer of Opp, Ala., and brother-in- law of Dr. Fickell. Mr. Simmons told how his city was paying a tax of 7% mills, in place of the 5 mills in Hope, besides heavy occupation taxes for every line of business, and street taxes, which have not been assessed in Hope for the past two years, he pointed out. An auto dealer in his city, pays ?50 a year for the privilege of selling cars, $50 for selling accessories, and $30 extra if he maintains a repair shop or a total of $130. ' A druggist pays $25 to operate his soda fountain $10 city tobacco tax plus an inventory tax. This tax is $20 on the first $500 average inventory, and graduated upward for all mercantile lines. And all'these taxes have been reduced from higher figures last year, "Hope might be paying just such taxes were it not for their city owned utilities," he said. His city owns its own water plant which usually earns around ?4,000 a year. Almost all of the cotton industries brought to south Alabama by the power trust are now bankrupt, Mr. Simmons said. Kiwanis club good-will tours start Kriday night, April 21, at Patmos. where the club will present a program featuring a talk by W. S. Atkins, and an excellent band. John P. Cox has charge of the program and Sid Bundy is to contact community leaders there, working up interest in the event. On successive Friday nic|ts the club will visit Spring Hill Columbus, Ozan and Blevins in rotation. Other communities may be visited later. B. V.

LITTLE ROCK.—With the arrest of three men Friday and the seizure of almost 400 slicks of dynamite and many feet of fuse, as well as a bundle of Communistic and I. W. W. literature. Sheriff Branch announced hat he believes he has one or more- of he men who last summer dynamited trains in Little Rock and North Liltle Rock. Another arrest was expected. The men held are Harry C. Minium, aged 40, North Little Rock; his father, L. C. Minium, 69; and Clarence Malch- ett. 33, North Little Rock. The dynamite was stored in magazines Friday night, Sheriff Branch deciding it would be unsafe to keep it at the courthouse or county jail. The arrests were made by Deputies Connor, Raper and Harris. Sheriff Branch said he received information a week ago that talk was heard of the attempts to wreck the trains last summer, and Thursday mcrning his informant reported that the younger Minium openly had boas'- ed that he had made the attempts and that he had plans for drastic action soon. Some Advertising of Beer Allowed Norwood Rules It May Be Used for Sales Made Across Border LITTLE ROCK— Arkansas newspapers may advertise the fact that 3.2 beer is on sale in nearby states, Attorney General Hal L. Norwood ruled Friday in an opinion lo Prosecuting Attorney kana. Millard Alford of Texar- The only statute on the subject, Mr. Norwood said, prohibits use of printed matter in soliciting orders for sucl' beverages which arc to be shippec into this state or from one point in this ' state to another point in the state. "I is my opinion," he said, "that it is not a violation of law for an Arkansas newspaper to carry advertisements for 3.2 per cent beer, where the beer i§ opt to be sold in Arkansas 01 shipped ituo the state," Inflation Defeat Likely WASHINGTON — (/P)— Defeat 'for $ proposals to expand the currency as 3 part of a farm relief program was pro,, dieted Friday by Democratic leaders as the Inflation issue came squarely,/ ; before the senate for a decision in. connection with the Roose.vety plan to aid agriculture.
