Dismissed because of the depression, he is regenerated by vis loyal wife and in the end becomes he means of saving the tollering irm.

Washburn- 0RESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S railroad program, announc- „. .ed today, is another proof of the sound-business formula thai brains are more important than money. The railroads the last 20 years learned to lean on the government, first for regulation, and then for money. The industrial brains that built and early maintained the roads, long ago went over to automobiles and other lines—so that the government eventually found no matter how much money it advanced the roads they got steadily worse. <® Now the president reverses the Hoover policy, and instead of pour. Trig millions of dollars of R/ F. C. loans down a rat-hole he proposes to assign a railroad dictator or "coordinator" to shake up the entire , . t business—make it self-supporting and Illltr 1 WITH M lA/l^lAtl respectable once more. cllllY J.OU1 JulVvllUll The public, at first won over to the ^ '* ' railroads' side by. fear for its life insurance investment in railroad bonds, subsequently reversed its sympathies, frightened by the stupendous manner in which, the roads were swallowing federal credit without getting any better. XXX This Is really "face-the-facts day" for Ihe railroads. They have been asking for the suprcssion of competitive truck lines, so that they might maintain their vast, overbuilt* network of steel rails; and Expect Hard Fight Over Procedure in Pr«u. N»w«t>«p«r Bnt«rprli« Au'n, ' Candidates ..Uncertain a* to Primary, Convention, or "Free-for-AH" TO DECIDE MAY 13 State Central Committee Sharply Divided Over Probable Course LITTLE ROCK — (/P) — lonfusion exists in Democratic political cir'cles here in advance of the meeting of the democratic state central committee a week from next Saturday, May 13, to determine the procedure in selecting the party nominee for chief justice of the state supreme court. Candidates for chief justice for the remainder of the term of the late Judge Jesse C. Hart ore "at sea" as to how to map out their campaigns until they learn whether a special primary election or o state convention is to be called to select the democratic nominee, or the general election on July 18 Is to be thrown open to all candi- ' School Fund |or March Released; Hempstead $2,055 19 Cents Per Capita Makes Total of $2.68 Thus Far for This Year ' Committee at Odds The committee itself is understood to be divided sharply on the question of procedure, some favoring a special primary and some o convention, and still others desiring^ '" - ' oliiTction be lurried in? The action., of the .committee next week is expected lo 'establish a precedent to be followed in the -future. Until last fall, it was cUstomary for the slate committee itself to nominate candidates to fill vacancies, but the last stale convenlion changed the rules and ordered that the committee call a primary if there was sufficient time, and olherwise lo call a convenlion. Several candidates hove announced chief juslice but Ihe opening of neir aclivo campaigns must awail Ihe action of Ihe committee, for if the convention plan should be adopted, the candidates could confine 'Iheir aclivi- ties to seeking support of the convention delegates. . If the commiltcc should decide nol to arrange for nomination of a party candidate but leave the field open in the July 18th election ,then all Demo- crals could run ns such, as could Republicans or Independents. This also would be a new procedure. Republicans Ihus far have given no indicalion they will put a candidate into Ihe field. The Candidates Democralic candidales who already have announced are Chief Justice C. E. Johnson, who is now serving by appointment of the governor; Carroll D, Wood, retired justice, and W. H. Arnold, Sr., of Texarkana. Meanwhile, there is talk now in political circles that the state com- millce may also have before it the uestion- of filling a vacancy in con|M since Represenlolive Heartsill Hagon is reported lo be under consideration for appoinlmenl as federal judge of the western dislricl of Arkansas. Although Ihe appoinlment is expecled soon, because of Ihe presenl session and Ragon's work as a member of Ihe powerful house ways and means commillec it is regarded here as doubtful that ho would be appointed before the end of the congressional session. Several prospective candidates for his scat in congress already have been mentioned, including Senator Robert Bailey of Russellville, L'iuetenant Governor Lee Cazort, Sam Hoax of Rus- fcllville, Brooks Hays, democratic national comrm'tteeman, and Proseculing Attorney Carl E. Bailey of Llltle Rock. continue to pay taxes on the same. Now we arc in for something different. Instead of trying to tear out the automobllc.pagc in history we arc going to tear out a few railroad pages.. The next few years the United States is going to take up thousands of miles of unprofitable rallroaG lines; make truck lines serve those routes instead. \ The entire railroad system is going ,to DC squeezed dqwn to a compact network of central roads and the more important "fceder"lines. The rest will be junked. Railroad capital will be written down accordingly. XXX . In this writing.down process 11 isn't the insurance companies that are going to "DC hurt. The big insurance companies pick the choice bonds of the biggest roads. They are largely protected against anything short of extermination of the railroads—which isn't going to happen. But the'people who are going to bo hurt—the people' -who' will face a ta^- Hcmpstead county receives' approximately $50,000 a year in railroad taxation. If auxiliary lines are torn up, and less equipment run through this county, investment becomes less, assessments shrink, and the total tax return might conceivably drop to half $50,000. XXX That loss will have to be replaced with taxation in other directions. Not a pleasant prospect. But it gives you a quick glance at what's ahead of us.
