H, Washburn- HEERY news today for the business world. The Associated Press, tabulating trade figures from all over America in New York, tells us that the month of April Is unfolding a real boom. steel mills are,running at 25 per C, cent of capacity, the highest in a year (at one time they were down to 13 per cent). Automobile sales arc likely to beat April a year ago. freight car loadings arc increasing in April, when they ought to be declining. Retail trade is picking up as prices rise and shoppers see their bargains License Cut Puts Cars on Road, But Revenues Decline 122,684 Registered First , Quarter, Against 1 10,100 Year Ago BUT INCOME DROPS License ,SaIes 3-4 Million Against 2 Million — Gas Tax Up LITTLE ROCK —<AP) — Predictions of Governor Futrell that his 50 and 75 per cent reductions in automobile « nse fees this year would in- fise motor vehicle registration have been borne out, but his hope that the increased number of cars in operation would prevent a heavy loss in revenue as a result of the reduced fees apparently is far from fulfillment. Figures just made public by the State llevonuc Department showed a total of 122,684 motor vehicles registered this year up to April 1, as compared with 110,100 up to the same date last year. Revenue department officials estimated an nddltional 5,000 vehicles had been registered since April 1 and that the total thus far registered is less than 10,000 short of the total for the entire year 1932, which was 136,503. Revenue Drops) . < • However, records in the state treasurer's office previously .showed a heavy, decrease in revenue from the motor vehicle fqfjs {or, the first quarter first quarter last year...? The treasurer's records on April 1 showed license fee collections up to that time of $718,423.64 as compared with $2,135,400.62 for the first quarter last year. . On the some date, • the state's five- sixths of the gasoline tax collections amounted to $1,092,928.64 as .compared with $1,075,942.65 for the first quarter last year. t was explained, however, that the surcr's records might not reflect exact status of license fee and gasoline tax collections as of that date since the funds from these revenue sources paid into the treasury each month do not always correspond to the actual collections mode during a given period. The comparative figures indicate, however, that while a greater num- \jer of motor vehicles were put into operation this ycur as a result of the reduced fees, and the gasoline tax collections linve been maintained or increased slightly, the increases fail to offset the loss in revenue resulting from the license fee reductions. Would Havu Dropped Anyway Governor Futrell, who sponsored the license fee reduction legislation in the 1933 legislature, is of the opinion the revenue from the combined sources would have been little more had the reductions not been made. The stringent banking situation In ths state during the past two months, pled with the general economic de- ession, the governor believes, would have reduced motor vehicle registration tremendously if the former fees had been maintained, thus depriving the state of revenue from both license fees and gasoline taxes. Under the 1933 reduction act, the fees on all passenger cars and light trucks were reduced 50 per cent and those on passenger cars four years old or older were reduced 75 per cent. WRIGLEY'S WOKWB THE RE0TAPE OPENER Salary Cut Taken by Supreme Court Justices Agree to 30 % Reduction at Governor's Suggestion LITTLE ROCK.—(/P)—Members of the Arkansas Supreme Court Wednes- xlay signified their willingness to join in the budget control effort promulgated by Governor Futrell. Chief Justice C. E. Johnson ad€ '" d Comptroller Griffin 'Smith the nbers of the court would take a intary 3D per cent reduction in salaries for April, May and June to aid in making appropriations come within revenues for the last quarter of the fiscal year. Salaries of the justices are §75000 a year. In a letter to all officials whose salaries are fixed by the constitution, the governor asked them to join him in making voluntary reductions for the three months. The budget control law authorizes the governor to reduce- appropriations of all departments and institutions to come within the revenues accruing to such agencies. go glimmering. X X At tre height of the panic our eyes were focused on the dollar, not the goods. But it's goods, not dollars, that make profitable business. When wheat and cotton and steel are on the march, and the United States has little hard cash, everyone is prosperous. But when we have 4 billion dollars' gold, and wheat and cotton and steel go begging, everyone is "broke". We've awakened. America has got up off a pile ot dollars and gone to work—trading in the world's goods, the only way profits are ever made. XXX Down hero our people feel new courage and optimism. They aren't foolish enough to believe the revival will come on us all at once, year late. The panic reached us a Therefore it may be autumn before the revival makes itself evident. But everyone feels belter. A world of cotton has been turned loose in the local markets the last few weeks. Seven cents is the nearest thing we have had to prosperity since last August's "boom". ( This time w«f are on solid ground, if figures mean anything. Cotton isn't alone in the advance. The whole industrial army Is moving onward and upward. Inflation to Put Grocery Prices Up rcarrt^1«(},-Salt Meat Lead Off With Local Advances Among other things, inflation means the automatic rising of commodity prices. If the Roosevelt measure is adopted, food prices arc lower today than they will.be for a long time to come. Already cream meal has made a big jump at the local stores, due to higher prices for corn. Flour prices are scheduled for another jump when local stores buy again. Salt meat is up c a pound this week. Several other items have advanced during the past few days. Enjoy the low food prices while they exist. Buy and enjoy what you can afford. In today's issue of the Hope Star are the advertisements of leading food stores and markets. Others tomorrow. These stores feature the lowest prices' available. Buy with economy by referring to the advertisements before you shop. Gore to Be Given Puerto Rico Post Florida Publisher Will Be Named Governor of U. S. Island WASHINGTON.—(/P)—Pros. Roosevelt intends to name Robert Gore, of Chicago and Florida, governor of Puerto Rico, it was learned Thursday. Publisher pf daily papers in Florida, Gore was closely identified with the Democratic national campaign.

Crop Loans Will Close April 30th Inspection of Farm Gardens Is to Begin Immediately Afterward J. A. Bell, field inspector in this district for the Crop Production Loan Office with headquarters at Memphis, Term., has given the following facts relating io the 1933 loan to this newspaper: ' .'• : , . ' ; -...'••,•; In making crop production loans in 1933 pursuant to the act, of congress, the secretary of agriculture was instructed by congress to prepare rules and regulations setting forth the terms and conditions on which such loans would be made. The secretary provided in such regulations that borrowers would be required to reduce their cash crop acreage 30 per cent less than such crop grown by them in 1932 (except that such reduction would not go beyond a certain minimum number-of acres, .—which; was. 8 aiftea "jwHIuieniect': to cotton). . ./• ,, The secretary further provided that all borrowers would have to plant a sufficient kitchen garden to meet their own requirements, and also to raise sufficient feed crops to take care of their livestock during the coming winter.

Here is the gist of what Miss Perkins^ actually recommended: 1. A working week of not more than 30 hours with a working day of not more than six hours, plus a flexible provision permitting employment of a worker for not more than 40 hours a week or more than eight hours a day during a period not to exceed ten weeks in a year in cases of "extraordinary need." 2. Power for the secretary of labor to appoint minmum wage boards for specific industries whose recommendations could be made mandatory in cases of non-compliance. 3. Power for the secretary to limit the total hours of a plant's operation when it operates on "excessively long" hours and causes "extraordinary hardships to other plants. Planned Production? The last provision has caused plenty of excitement, but it may be said with authority that the Roosevelt administration b»d no thought of using Agree on Tariff, Not oh Debts, Says U.S.A. Europe Must Pay June IS—Senate Adopts Free Silver, Debates Gold Cut WASHINGTON— (AP)—President Roosevelt is willing to discuss war debt revision after the world conference in London in June, but it was emphasized authoritatively as he Went into conference with Premier Bennett of Canada Thursday that he has not entered into any agreement for the postponement of the June 15th payments nor laid down any plan for a debt settlement. • : Simultaneously at the Department of •> State, Secretory Hull indicated to re- •jorfers that a World truce on tariffs jending the,convening of the London conference in June is under consider-' ition and the United States is favorably inclined .toward it., As to tariffs,. Secretary Hull recalled that he himself offered in the senate last spring a proposal for a two- year holiday on all increases. , Debate Gold Reduction WASHINGTON.— (JP) —T h e Senate worked toward a vote on'the gold- content section of the inflation bill Thursday as a preliminary to -taking action on the veterans' payment proposal. • Meanwhile Lundeen, of Minnesota, filed a petition < to force the house to vote on the bonus question. Free Silver Adopted * WASHINGTON.— (IP)—Free coinage of silver was jvritten,into 'the administration's monetary inflation legislation by the senate ' late, Wednesday after'a turbulent session which ended in an agreement ; to limit debate and thus hasten a final vote. •" ., An amendment 'proposed by Senators Wheeler,.-' Democrat, Montana, and King, DlfTflocrat; Utah, was added to the .•measure' ttf authorize,,the presi- dent to remonetize silver at any ratio to gold that he' sees fit. The amendment provides, also, for free and unlimited cVinage at that ratio. The blmetalism clause was accepted, 41 to 26, after the provision authorizing the president to reduce the gold don tent 5 'of .the dollar by as much as 50 per cent had been subjected to opposition from Senator Borah, Idaho's Reyiiblican independent, and Senator Robinson, Republican, > Indiana, had injected the cash soldiers' bonus issue by offering an amendment to pay the war veterans out of . the. proposed $3,000,000,000 of new currency. Democratic leaders joined in supporting the bimetalism amendment which attracted 36 Democrats, four Republicans and the lone Farmer- Laborite, Shipstead of Minnesota. The four Republicans were: Capper, Kansas; Cutting, New Mexico; Norris, Nebraska, and Nye, North Dakota. Nineteen Republicans and seven Democrats opposed it, the latter seven being: Bailey, North Carolina; Bulkley, Ohio; Copeland, New York; Gore, Oklahoma; Stephens, Mississippi; Tydings, Maryland, and Wagner, New York.

Following, almost verbatim, are the words which Miss Perkins proposed for the labor bill in her memorandum to the house labor committee: "If it be found by the secretary of labor after due investigation that the operation of any plant or enterprise under this act disturbs and prevents a fair balance of production in the industry involved and is bringing about overproduction or unfair competition in interstate commerce by excessively long periods of operation and thus causing extraordinary hardships to other plants or enterprises in said industry with consequent substantial injury to the general welfare, then and in that event ,the secretary shall be authorized to specify a limitation that shall be imposed on the Cfimni Calls for 3 Old-Time Religion • '• • l * Evangelist Discusses "Scrappin' the Devil," at Tabernacle Evangelist B. B. Crimm used for his subject Wednesday night "Scrappin' the Devil." Reading from Revelation 12:7-11 verses he related Satin's rebellion against God and of Satan's final expulsion from Heaven. The text was! the llth verse. Applying the lesson from his subject. the Evangelist stated: 'We learn how God's forces overcame the Devil and his cohorts; first, they overcame by the power of the blood of the lamb and if we use the same means in Hope as they used then, isn't it reasonable to believe that we can win a victory for the Lord here. 'The trouble with the church world today is that .they get along too well with the world. In many instances there is no apparent distinction between the believer and the non-believer and until the churches of the land come back to teaching, preaching and believing in a blood bought redemption, just so long will Satan defeat us here. "Salvation is not to be found in the Rituals of the church, such as, baptism, the Lord's Supper, and church membership, neither can our educational methods, culture nor any pf man's theories substitute for God's plan in the blood atonement of Jesus Christ. "It was a sad day for the church when they got away from the old-time testimonial meetings where people gave testimony to the work and power of the Holy Spirit in their lives and who strived to live the convictions they professed.. "One is afraid to have testimonial meetings of this kind today because of the embarrassing situations that arise from the fact that so many Christian's lives do not harmonize with their testimony. The crying need of the church and the world today is a return of old-time Holy Ghost religion in which people can once again live the ideas and standards of Christianity; then, and not until then, will the Christian forces be able to win a victorious warfare against Satan and save the lost. "This day of substitution for the blood of Christ and the power of testimony with man-made plans, has robbed the church of its militant spirit." His subject Thursday night will be, The Soul's conflict with the Devil."

No Publication of 1933's State Acts Legislature's Failure to Appropriate, Cited by Attorney General LITTLE ROCK.—A synopsis of the acts of the 1933 General Assembly cannot be published in newspapers as required by law because the legislature did not make an appropriation for that purpose, Attorney General Hal L. Norwood advised 'Secretary of State Ed F. McDonald Wednesday, Mr. McDonald sought an opinion as to whether Act 4, the budget control law, prohibits publication of the synopsis in the absence of an appropriation for that purpose. He said he had received inquiries from many newspapers as to whether the synopsis would be published. The attorney general pointed out that Section 2 of Act 4 provides that "No obligation shall arise against this state under or by reason of any law or any contract made in pursuance hereof unless a prior appropriation has been made by the General Assembly to provide for such obligation," said it was in his opinion that the secretary of state is prohibited by that act from making contracts for publication of the synopsis and that the state would be under no obligation to pay for such publication.

"The American people by an overr whelmingly majority voted to outlaw the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages. This decision was not has.? ' tily made. U resulted from knowK edge, gained by the experience of mankind throughout the ages, that the use of alcoholic liquor seriously tor jures man in three ways. "Those who advocate the repeal o| the Eighteenth amendment and other prohibition laws do not contend that the use of alcoholic beverages is a good thing, but they urge that the, prohibition laws have failed and that the return of legalized manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages would' bring about prosperity and would also provide additional revenues for the state and its institutions. "Friends of prohibition ought not to be deceived by the, argument that the^ repeal of the Eighteenth amendment would not affect the situation in Arkansas. If the Eighteenth amendment is repealed, liquor will be sold in at least three of the states that border on Arkansas. It will be impossible to, keep the liquor from coming across our borders. And it will only be » short time untii |t Will be urged that, since the adjojittng states are permjjU ting liquor to be sold and it is coming from there into our state, -we should repeal pur- prohibition laws so that • could better regulate the liquor ' fie and obtain for Arkansas ewe _A,ir<
