MAGNOLIA FOUNDERS' MONTH Petroleum Contributes to your welfare F 1 JROM Jthe most ragged little urchin to the beautifully gowned "Colonel's Lady", petroleum has contributed trc- rr?ndously in the past 35 years to the welfare of every American—especially to those of us who live in the five Southwestern States. The deluge of petroleum that began with the discovery of oil in Texas at Corsicana in 1896 has changed the whole fiber and destiny of the Southwest. It has speeded the growth of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and New Mexico by at least fifty years. It has given employment, opportunity and wealth directly to hundreds of thousands of Southwestern families—today it directly feeds more than one million Southwestern people.' It has not been long since oil money began to assist in replacing two-room frame schoolhouses with magnificent institutions of learning. Hospitals that rank with the finest in the world have been the gifts of public- spirited citizens whose bleak farms were suddenly transformed into profitable oil fields. In thirty-five years the population of the Southwest has almost trebled. It increased nearly 20% between 1920 and 1930—to a population of more than twelve and one-half millions. Hamlets have grown into great cities almost overnight—and oil is chiefly responsible. In Texas alone, the value of manufactured products has leaped from less than $100,000,000 to more than $1,200,000,000, with petroleum accounting for nearly 40 per cent of the total. In the other Southwestern States the development Has been equally as remarkable. •• Figures anJ statistics arc dry reading. But they are indisputable proof of the part petroleum is playing in the growth of your homeland ... of what petroleum contributes to your welfare/ In 1931 Southwestern landowners and their assignees received around $160,000,000 in royalties, lease bonuses, leases and rentals. Another $440,000,000 at least went for materials, supplies and field service. It is estimated that a total of not less than TWO BILLION DOLLARS a year is paid into the pockets of Southwestern residents directly by petroleum and its products. In 1932—alone— the petroleum industry paid to the States of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and New Mexico more than $65,000,000 in the single item of gasoline taxes. The welfare of all who live here in the great Southwest is united inseparably with the welfare of petroleum—let us all keep this common Welfare constantly in mind. Total tax revenue derived from Petroleum by the five Southwestern States in 19)0 was about $120,000,000. In Texas the oil industry paid 56.8% of the total State revenue from taxation. Oklahoma received 18.37% of its total tax revenue from oil. Salaries, wages and commissions paid to oil industry employes in the Southwest exceeded $330,000,000 in 1930. A like sum was poured back into general business for food, clothing, rent, entertainment, bank deposits, etc., by the families of oil employes. I FAMILIES SUPPORTED?? The U. S. Census for 1930 showed about 250,000 individual] employed by the Southwestern oil industry. Using the national average of 44 persons per family, 1,100,000 people depend upon oil payrolls. I MYAUIES-LEASES-RENTALS Southwestern landowners and their assignee; received $160,000,000 in 1930 from the various oil companies for royalties, leases, lease bonuses and rentals. Railroads operated in the Southwest received approximately $75,000,000 in freight revenue from the oil induitry during 1930. From 1920 to 19)0, the five Southwestern Statej enjoyed 1 population increase of aboul 2,000,000, or 20%, to a total of 12,600,147. Nearly 50% of thil increase occurred in oil-producing counties. Including money paid during 19JO for matetijli, supplies and services, including tcaniins, trucking, contract drilling, gas, water, electricity, the total was $440,000,000.

While this is not true inflation as we understand tho word, the effect has been to boost American prices. Mr. Roosevelt's iictjon should be regarded, however, as an equalization of the past rather than inflation for the future. You will better understnnd today's happenings if you 1 chanced to reud Caret Gorretl's article "The Economic Drive Against ihc United Stales" in lust week's Saturday Evening Posl. Our leaders' Ihcory is lhat America was coming oul of Ihe depression last summer and fall, when Europe began juggling her currency against our dollar in order to get foreign goods over our tariff wall and so hang on lo the conl-lails of reviving American prosperity. That this prosperity failed to materialize, Mr. Gnrrclt blames on Ihc facl lhal millions of dollars' worlh of foreign goods displaced American-manufactured brands in Ihe domestic market during Iho winler—stealing away our margin of recovery. x;x x I can give you Mr. Garrcll's poinl in Ihis one paragraph: When,Ihc British pound went off Ihc gold-standard il dropped from its normal value of $<f37 in American money o aboul $3.20. A Brilish manufacturer selling shoes at 0150 pound par pair, would get in England Iho cquivalcnl of only ?,'i.20 in American money. Bul if he shipped them to the United stales he would gel,$4.87—or enough more lo pay the freight, the tariff, and allow a handsome profit, Then the Brilish govcrnmenl, Mr. Garrell' lells us, helped ils manufacturers hold this advantage by establishing a %-billion-dollar fund wilh which lo juggle currencies. When Ihc pound Iricd lo climb back up I opar, 54.87, the British sold pounds and bought dollars, making the pound cheaper, tho dollar dearer, and continuing to maintain the foreigner's advantage. Now, what th2 Uniled Stales has done, is lo drop Ihe value of our dollar abroad so lhat the Bril- ish manufacturer . attempting to sell shoes over here will get only the $3.20 he would have, gollen in London. Nalurally he can't, pay the freight and tariff any longer—and the invaders will be lurn^ back.. In 'lociSy*s"^p*apcr > you read '{fiaT'llie Stale Corporation Commission has completed ils fad-finding Iribunal for delermining public utility rates. I do not know Mr. Eaton ,lhe accountanl- mcmbcr, or Mr. Laslcy, Ihe allorney- mcmbcr; but if George L. Hess of El Dorado, the cngincer-mcmbDr, is lypU cal of Ihc olhcr selections, then it is a sound group of investigators. Mr. Hess is a well knov/n evaluation engineer, with wide experience in judging natural gas produclion and Iransmission cosls. He was successfully used by Ihe City of Fort Smith in a fight against a gas company 10 years ago, when I knew Mr. Hess very well, both of us living at El Dorado. Consumers should look lo the Corporation Commission and its fact-finding tribunal for a fair and result-getting survey of public utilily rates in Arkansas. It is a bnllle no one city can successfully atlempl. Bul united as a state, in the Corporalion Commission, we have n chance to meet Ihe interconnected utility concerns on equal ground.

Possessed of ICES that men want than any other area "inhabited by white men, she imagines spies and sees plots. Six British engineers, working in Russia for an atlractivc wage, are "framed" on third-degree evidence of terrorized Russian peasants, and five are eonvicled of damaging the very machinery they wore erecting for the Soviel government. Three of the five are exiled, two sentenced to prison. Brcat Britain, angry, declares an embargo tluil will cosl Russia four-fifths of her trade with thai nation. One doesn't blame the British.

STAUK Associntcd Pnt-ss Staff Writer .... ; LITTLE ROCK—(/I 5 )—The jisigns of an impending special session of the Arkansas legislature this summer or fall are becoming increasingly apparent. The move for legislation to legalize 3.2 per cent beer for revenue, is only one of the things pointing to'a call. ' As much' as Governor Futrell would like to avoid a special' session, developments thai have; followed each 'olhcr' in swift succession since Ihe regular session adjourned on March 9 indicate trie'difficulty'of long delaying a special session/ : The tax situation is the most press, ing problem thai may lead to a call. Governor Futrell himself has told advocates" cf beer legislation that an overhauling of Ihe tax'system is more important at Ihis lime than beer legislation. General Taxes Fnr.Down. The disclosure of "the tremendous drop,in 1932'general real and personal property tax assessments,: upori which COlleMSftns nr^elng Tnftdt* t»&» year,' has atfcerfluated the demand for a special session. •The decrease of assessments lo Ihe loWest level since 1916 was a distincl surprise lo stale tax officials who expected a heavy decline in valuations but not of the proportions thai developed. On Ihc basis of Ihe 1982 assessments, totaling $171,469,866, a decrease of $83,365,118 from the 19,'U figures, Iho ^operation of the stale and counly gov- ' crnmcnls and Ihe school system on sharply reduced budgets will be cx- Ircmely difficult Acl 280 of 1933, which became a law wilhoul Ihe governor's signalure, is generally cxpeclcd lo contribute to the heavy delinquencies in tax payments this year. It extends the period for rcdcmplion of tax-forfeited property from Iwo years lo four years and reduces the penalty for non-payment from 10 per cent to 3 per cent. Some counly lax collectors estimate that collections this year will drop to from 25 to 50 per cent The lax problem has'Drought suggestions from some legislators to Governor Futrell lhal a sales tax be cn- acled. His altitude on this now has nol been disclosed, although at the regular session he was commitled against any new forms of taxation. School Plight Desperate The plight of the common school system presents another serious pr.»b_ lew. Schools in some sections now arc being operalecl on a tuition basis because of fallen revenues and Ihc number is expected to increase greatly the next term. The ways and means commiltee of the Arkansas Educalion Association has charged Iho 1933 legislature with the greatest diversion of school funds to other purposes ever made by an Arkansas legislature, an amount estimated by the committee at $625,000. A sldtemcnt by the committee also asserted thai the abolilion of counly tiupcrinlcndenls and counly boards of education and reorganization of the state department of education "destroyed the system which was the model of Ihc nalion but has substituted therefor the mosl anliqualecl sys- lem in Ihc United Stales." Advocates of bter legalization contend Arkansas is losing a large amount of revenue lo bordering slates which now have beer and that it is taking money out. of the slate for other pur. poses as well. Million From Beer Some of these cslimale lhal a beer tax in Arkansas would produce as much as $1,000,000 u year of new revenue. Governor Futrell says he will not call a special session lo legalize beer in any event unless two-thirds of the members of the legislature agree in advance upon a beer measure and advocates of the legislation now are seeking these pledges. Whatever their success, Ihc governor is nut expected lo call a special cession until after Ihe July 18 referendum on prohibition when the A'r- kansas electors will vole on the qucs- licn of ratijifalion .or rejecticn of the proposed new amendment to the con. stitution of the United States which would repeal he Eighleenlh amendment. Upon the result of lhat referendum may depend the question of a special session. , STEEL BOOI FLAPPER FANNY SAYS: . u. s.

BY WILLIS THORNTON NEA Service Writer . NEW YORK—The House of' Morgan has its roots doep in international finance. The first big opportunity of Junis, tho founder, came to him as a partner in a firm engaged in foreign exchange and international security business. He proved his pre-eminence in thai*/ field when, even as the Prussians Ihundcrcd at the gates of Paris and tile Emperor Napoleon III was 3 cap- live, ^Junius boughl an issue of bonds from the refugee French provisional government at 80 and immediately "floated" them at 85.. It was a big profit, but it was a big risk, and Morgan, when Ihose bonds rose shorlly lo par, was regarded as a greal financier by his customers and in fact by all Europe. This European connection was undoubtedly what set John Pierponl Morgan, his ton, on Ihe road upward. Up to thai lime he had been jusl a smart, efficient banker, inclined lo speculate, but a trader, never a mixer in industrial affairs. Ka 111 pant Railroads The Railroad Era was just flowering. Tentacles of trackage were wriggling weslward. It was an era of looss financial morals and reckless buccaneering with money. In the scramble to produce railroads, the American investor paid for those railroads three times over, but at least we got the railroads. If the Morgan operations in railroads into which he now launched Ipave something to ba desired, Ihey were at Irast better than those of some of the men he fought. Gould, Fisk, Vanclerbill, Sage, Huntinglon. Drew, were names connected with manipulation of railroad stocks rather than with developing and running Ihe roads. Il was with Jay Gould and Jim Fisk lhat Morgan ai S2, firsl tangled in a Chenault Is Given U. S. Appointment Arkansas Gazette Writer to Aid With R. F. C.

Ten of their Russian co-defendants were sentenced to terms up to 10 years. One was acquitted. Three judges comprising the court announced the verdict after nine hours and 15 minutes of deliberation. W. H. McDonaia, the only one of the British employes of the MetropoU ilan-Vickers electrical firm lo plead guilty, received a two.year prison sentence. L. C. Thornton, the company's chief construction engineer in Russia, who was described as a military spy by Prosecutor Audrey Bishinsky, was was sentenced to a three-year term. Allan Monkhouse, the Metropolitan Vickers director in Russia; John Cushny, an engineer, and Charles Nordwall were ordered deported within three days. They will not be alldw- ed to return to Soviet Russia wilhin five years. A. W. Gregory, charges against whom were withdrawn by the prosecutor, was acquitted. Y. I. Ziebert, who the prosecutor said had engaged in no serious sabotaging activity, was the only Russian freed of the charges. One Woman Sentenced The only woman defendant Anna Kutuzcva, secretary of Monkhouse, was sentenced to 1V4 years imprison, mcnt. The verdict carried no deaf sentences, the severest punishmc' being the 10-year terms metered c to Vassili Gusev, A. T. Lobanov a L. A. Sukoruchkin, for all of who'i the prosecutor asked "the highest penalty." The Russians who received the heaviest sentences also suffered confiscation of their property. The last procedure of Ihe Irial was a series of final statements from eacp ot the defendants. Perhaps the most dramatic of these came from Monkhouse, who told the court lhat 9 man ot his profession could no more wreck —~»"Tir^fI campaign ne iwa-,i to establish a $mtr level to counteract i The word "inflation".'if ticularly popular in the" vocabulary.
