A|«- tt \»/fc«ltKi«f«_____. -Editorial By Alex. M, J3N years ago today this writer came to Arkansas, step- 1 ping into a ring-side seat at the El Dorado oil boom. Youth fresh out of school looks for adventure-^-and since in this civilized day there are no more frontiers he goes to an oil field. N° ° ne has ever written the true -gstory of aA oil field. All the fiction-masters who have tried their hand at it make it sound like a gold camp, or an increditable story of Indian-fighters. All of them failed because they tried to draw a picturesque scene where there was none. The gold camps may have been picturesque. I personally don't know. But the story of an oil field lies in the hearts of the men who go there—and not in the setting. XXX You wouldn't call the City of Hope picturesque. It's a well established community. El Dorado was fully as old as Hope, when the oil boom struck. Some day a discerning writer will tell the story of how the original townsmen met an oil boom that dumped down on them 40,000 people drawn from every state in the union. Some of those visitors weren't very Cities and States Launch Four-Year Utility Regulation Requests for Aid Reach Fact-Finding Tribunal From Cities TO HELP FIX RATES State Bureau Will Lay Rate Facts Before City Councils LITTLE ROCK— (/P)— A four-year experiment in joint municipal-state regulation of public utility rates has been launched with the organiza- ion of the new utility fact- nding tribunal, which soon 11 be ready to consider the fast increasing number of requests from city councils for aid. The membership of the* new tribunal, created by the 1933 legislature, has just been completed by the Arkansas Corporation commission with the appointments of Frank L. Eaton of Little Rock, an accountant, and George L. Hess of El Dorado, an engineer, in addition to P, A. Laslcy, Little Rock attorney, who had been named pre' vlously. Mr. Laslcy has been elected chairman of the tribunal which has not yet selected its staff of technical , workers authorized by the act creating it. It Obtains Data The tribunal -was created for a period of four years. It has no rate-fixing powers and its scope of work is .confined to investigation of utility companies oft all classes for tho purpose of gathering data upon which city <^fl<41s,m5^b-M v ulHMte.Jf»^% The .utility companies operating in the state are required to pay the cost of operating the tribunal through a tax of $2 per $1,000 of their gross earnings and the income tax reports of the utilities are thrown open to the tribunal for inspection to determine whether they are making full payments on their gross earnings. The findings of fact of the tribunal "shall be conclusive on all parties, in 10 absence of fraud, or of error so •oss as to be tantamount to fraud," under provisions of the tribunal act. Provides for Hearing The act further provides that: "Before entering upon an investigation, the tribunal shall notify the utility company, the council of the city or town involved, and the corporation Commission if interested, of the proposed investigation, and they shall have the right to attend and to be heard, and to present such testimony, evidence and facts as they may desire to submit, which shall be preserved as a part of the record, together with all the testimony, evidence and facts procured and considered by the tribunal. "The complete record so made up, with the findings and tho report of the tribunal thereon, shall constitute the sole record on which the council of the city or town or the corporation ommission shall fix and perscribc the rates to be charged by the utility company, and the sole record on which any proceeding in court to challenge , jjthe reasonableness or validity of such f fates shall be determined, unless the parties by agreement stipulate what shall constitute the record." The corporation commission's utility rate-fixing powers apply only to service outside, cities and towns where city councils have no jurisdiction. 'hie three members of the tribunal reccivo a salary of $5,000 a year, each. Numerous requests from councils for aid in efforts to obtain reductions savory. Armed vigilahtcs gathered in front of tho Masonic hall in 1922 and proceeded to run the gamblers out of El Dorado. But they stayed in the county, and it wasn't until the first of 1925 when a reform sheriff was elected that El Dorado really knew whether it was going to be just a boom town or an established city that men could bring their families to. XXX As I look back at it I can sec that the El Dorado development exerted a certain effect on the political history of Arkansas. With its new population and wealth Union county came to hold the balance of power in a tight campaign. The late Thomas C. 'McRae .was governor when I arrived April 26, 1923, and was close to the hearts of all. In the 1924 campaign, Tom Terral, Jake Wilson and John E. Martineau closed their tours at El Dorado, paying tribute to the voting strength of the new ciCy, Terral being elected. But Governor'Terral failed to-show progress on roads ,of which Union county had none—and that section crushed him in the 1926 campaign, giving Martineau half of ,the 16,000 majority by which he defeated Terral for ' In a way, therefore', the El Dorado oil. boom contributed to the program of public expenditure which began In 1927 and ran up to two years ago— for better or for worse. But there are mistakes in every government. I always will believe Arkansas is better off, regardless of debts, for having had the Martineau highway development. The eastern half of the state had roads ,but was being forced into bankruptcy because of the land taxes them. The Futrcll to Of f er New Program for Arkansas Schools Governor Announces He Will Appoint Commission to Determine Facts PROPOSE QUESTIONS Executive Will Charge Group to Answer Certain Interrogations LITTLE ROCK — (/f) — Governor Futrell revealed Wednesday he favored a new public school system for Arkansas and would appoint soon a commissibn that "will be open to suggestions from every possible side in the formation of the new plan. He said his ideas would be embodied in a statement he Is now preparing, which will probably be released within a few days. "That statement will contain certain interrogatories to the commission," he said, "which I hope will be atwwered n the course of 'its investigation and research into the school question." Although the governor gave no intimation of the makeup of the commission, it is thought probable that the majority will be laymen. His announcement came after conferences with various.school, business and lay leaders. 55 Memberships for Hope Broadway Club Advertising Drive Meets. Quick Response—Motorcade Due,Here Friday The first list of memberships in the Hope club of the Broadway of America association was released Wednesday by Terrell Cornelius, Arkansas director. It shows 55 names, with more to follow as the local committee completes its task of interviewing Hope business houses. Mr. Cornelius renewed his appeal- for cars and local tourists to join the Broadway motorcade when it goes through Hope Friday, April 28, on its way to the annual convention of the' association at El Paso, Texas. ., The convention, May 1 and'2, coin-;, cidcs with the ' Mexican International, Fair across the border from El Paso in Juarez, so that there will be a special inducement to take a vacation; at this time.

XXX I have what I believe is an unusual slant on the small city. Writers rhapodize on "life in a small town." I don't pay much attention to that. I believe men' are carried wherever opportunity takes them. I don't think any of us have much respect for people who go places simply for sentiment's sake. That sounds all right in a book, but it isn't real life. I came from a big city to a small one, because it semed to me that the small-city newspaper field had been overlooked while the boys were all rushing off to the big cities. After ten years I can just about prove I am right. I was in New York City that day in February, 1931, that the New York World suspended, having been sold out. And paraphrasing a classic phrise, I thought, "There, but for the grace of God, I might have been working!" The great cities are full of competent men either jobless or pressed into unhappy circumstances, sSmply because they either haven't had the courage to go elsewhere, or knew not where to go. None but those who have left the big cities for the small ones, really know the opportunity they afford. I cnosider myself fortunate. I think this depression will turn men back to forgotten fields—now that the big cities have let them down. Lafayette County Man Is Wounded Lee Stone Critically Shot —Willie Richey Jailed at Lewisville LEWISVILLE, Ark.—Lee Stone, Lafayette county planter, was in a critical condition with a bullet wound through his chest; and Willie Richey, young farmer, was held in the Lafayette county jail here Tuesday following a shooting near Springbank, 35 miles south of here. Stone was taken to Atlanta, Texas 'or medical treatment. His condition was so grave, that physicians left there .o take him to Dallas it was reported. e was said to be bleeding internally. Richey was arrested at his home not far from the Stone's residence where the shooting occurred. He was taken in custody by Deputy Sheriff W. J. Spence. The shooting was the result of an argument which began when Stone was said to have intervened in a disagreement between his wife and another woman, Sheriff R. II. Duty said officers had learned. Richey told officers that he saw Stone reach toward his pocket, and that then ho drew his pistol and fired once. Richey said that he then ran, and as he fled, he was fired at four times, none of the shots taking effect, it was reported. The shooting took place not far from where Ed Gish was killed a month ago. Gus Denman is awaiting grant jury action on murder charges in connection with the latter affray. 4 Injured as Car Ditched on No. 67 Wrecked by Piece of Wood in Road, Says George Greenlee Four young persons of'-Hope • werte slightly hurt Tuesday night and a fifth escaped injury when an automobile driven by George Greenlee went into a ditch three miles east of Texarkana on the paved highway lead- j|Play to Be Given at Emmet Friday Night "Hinky Doodle Town," a two-act play sponsored by the Emmet Baptist church, will be presented at 7:45 o'clock Friday night in the auditorium of the Emmet High School.

Own Stock Pegged by Cities Service Doherty Poured 128 Millions Into Market, Probe Reveals W AV5HIN QTON.—(#)-Testimony that during the stock market crash of October, 1929, the Cities Service Securities company spent more than 128 million dollars purchasing common stock of its parent, the Cities Service Company, was presented to the Federal Trade Commission Tuesday by Thomas W. Mitchell, the commission's economist-examiner. This sum bought 2,372,101 shares of Citie sService, he said, "but as these amounted only to about two-fifths o the total quantity of that stock thrown into the markets, they were not sufficient to uphold the market price which broke to a low of $20 on October 29." The testimony was given as hear ings opened on the securities com pany, marketing and trading agency set up in 1927 by Henry L. Doherty Co.

He addressed an appeal meeting of the. Salvation Army at the. Bankers Club. "The only known cure that I ever heard for a depression is the assumption on the part of a vast majority of the people that the depression 'Ik F over,»' he-Mid: - „ "I do not want to .be critical, but there has been too great an assumption that the depression can be cured by panaceas and like things. Unfortunately depressions have to run their course like everything else.

Fears had been expressed that the Ottawa pacts, under which Great Britain and its dominions agreed to favor each other in trade, might prevent the breaking down of trade barriers between the United States and its northern neighbor. But Mr. Bennett said flatly that the Ottawa agreements do not stand in the way of nebotiating trade treaties with the United States. "I stated in the House of Commons two days ago," said Mr. Bennett, "that I stood ready to discuss any proposals looking for freer trade relations between Canada and the United States. I repeat that stand now." CHICAGO.—(£>)—William Harridge president of the American league, indefinitely suspended' Buddy Myer Washington infielder, Ben Chapman Yankee outfielder, and Earl Whitehill ,also of the Senators, Wednesday for their participation in a fight which caused the Senator-Yankee game ai Washington Tuesday to break up in a riot. The bad blood existing between the two clubs since the Bill Dickey-Car Reynolds incident of 1932, broke ou again after Lou Gehrig had singled to center and Ben Chapman to right sending Gehrig to third, Tony Lazzer forced out Chapman, Cronin to Myer with 'Gehrig scoring. Chapman, whom Myer contendec spiked him Monday, slid into seconc spikes up, knocking Myer down. The second-sacker kicked at Chapman, who scrambled to his feet. They swung fists toe to. toe as umpires raced toward them and players poured down the dugouts. Amid the howling of bel* ligerent fans, Myer and Chapman were separated and expelled from the game. Players milled around the field for five minutes before play was resumed. Then, as Chapman started for the showers, by way of the Washington dugout, Earl Whitehill, Senator hurler, passed some remark about the fight. Chapmen let fly a right which closed Whitehall's eye, and followed his lead with his left. Again the players swarmed from the dugouts, and this time fans leaped from the stands, intent upon mobbing the Yankee left fielder. A police riot squad arrived in time to clear the field before greater damage was done. After a brief pause, the officers went into aption again to stop a fight between fan particans in the lower right pavilion. s. win ier] .of man H. the" disarmament ----- -,-,,, under Roosevelt's policy the Un States is ready tc>do big;Uiii maintain 'peace once Eurppefl- she realy wants to reduce: a i;''"-.';V.y ; '.;!'
