H. Washburn- bank robbers, getbiit your pencils and flit* 1 urdthis profit! Charles Chapman and his ganff robb-d ttt« First National here of $24,000 last February. This week he was released at El Dorado under $6,000 bond for a bank robbery at Smackover. The Smackover robbery was $6,000, .—, _ (jjsej the bond was J6.000. • But why not a. $24,000 bond—the amount of the Hope robbery? Simply because it is the practice of our counties to ^ run their law enforcement policies independent, and often in defiance, of each other. XXX Thus it would be possible for Chapman to put up bond in several counties, if necossai-y, ana still, be money ahead on the proceeds of his haul in this city. It is a ridiculous situation. Our readers remember a sharp criticism we made of the mariner in which Sheriff A. D. Maxoy of Van Buren county stalled off the Hempstead circuit court with respect to Chapman. The prisoner was "ransomed" out to Union county because Sheriff Maxey didn't get any local reward for catching a criminal it was his duty to catch if humanly possible. We grant that a reward was due. But we presume the state bankers association is "broke" like everyone else. Because Maxey took advantage of these desperate times a sharp and resourceful bank robber is once more HOPE, ARKANSAS SATURDAY, MAY 6, )_M««nt AHodiMJ Prttt, A) —MMAt NtwlpipM BnHrpriw Att'n, Candidates Slow to File for Vote on 18th Repealer No Final Date, However, Until Printing of the Ballot NO EXPENSE MONEY Although Counties Elect Delegates, Total .State Vote Binds Convention LITTLE ROCK— (/P) —The honor of paying their own expenses to a convention here in which they will have no (.voice thus far has attracted •few candidates for delegates to the August 1st convention to cast this state's vote for or against repeal of the Eighteenth amendment. Reports show that In not more than two or three counties have candidates for delegates in the July 18 prohibition referendum qualified through the filing of petitions with the county clerk, bearing signatures of 100 or more qualified electors of the county. May File Any Time There's still plenty of time left, as the act of the 1933 legislature calling the election and convention fixes no final date for'filing. Thus candidates apparently may file up to the time the ballots' are printed. Although the act requires that candidates must file pledges with their petitions stating they arc for or against repeal, there is no limit on the number of candidates that may file. The candidate receiving the highest number of votes in each county gets the ttfp^to .the .conventipnr-an!.pays his own expenses. The act made no provision for paying expenses of the delegates. After, they got here, they will have no voice in the convention us it is bound to cast the 75 votes as a unit either for or against the proposed Twqnty-First ameendment to the twenty-first amendment to the United States constitution which would repeal the Eighteenth (prohibition) imendment. Whether the convention votes for or against ratifying tho new amendment depends upon the total vote in the state cast on tho question of repeal. Although the names of the candidates and whether they arc for or against repeal will appear on the ballots, the vote on these count nothing so far as determining what Arkansas is to do about repeal. That merely determines who gets to"make the trip to the Little Rock convention. Depends on Total Vote What counts is the vole on the qucs tion which will appear also on the ballot in this form: " "For repeal of the 18th amendment." "Against repeal of the 18th amendment." After the July 18th election, the county election commissioners canvass the results on this question and certify them to tho secretary of state. He then adds the total for the state cast for repeal and the total cost against, repeal. When walking around this state. XXX Tho Chapman case illustrates our need for centralized control of law enforcement in this state. A sheriff holding a high-priced bank robber nowadays is apt to talk like a kidnaper wanting ransom. He says, "I got him,' 'and in the next breath asks, How much?" This foolishness will run just long enough to disgust the people and inspire direct action. Then we'll wipe out two-thirds of our county lines and set up a state constabulary which will keep its eye on the criminal instead of the reward. XXX Too many of our people take spectacular holdups with cynical amusement. "Let the insurance companies pay—that's what' they're for," the cynics say. Well, we used to believe that the cost of taxation was borne only by the rich. • When it got heavy enough, we discovered that the bigger a man's tax biU'the more likely'lt'SiVas to be passed on to the rest of us. Finally the federal government was forced into direct taxation of commodities'like gasoline, automobile tires,; cosmetics, and other every-day articles. Taxation hits everybody. Insurance hits everybody. The only way to keep these costs in line is to hammer eternally at self- seeking public officials who have il in their power to make or break the record of law-enforcement. the convention meets and elects u chairman and secretary, the secretary of state informs the convention of the total number of votes in the entire state for and against repeal. "Upon receipt of said certificate of the secretary of state, said convention for whichever side of Ihe question a majority of the total number of votes in the entire says the act. "Said convention state was cast," shall thereupon immediately adjourn," at adds. -- •»>• Tax Strike Begun in City of Helena Doctors and Dentists Protest $50 Levy as "Discriminatory" HELENA, Arki— (/P)— A tax-resistance campaign has been started by a group of Helena physicians and dentists and as a result a half dozen or so have been fined for failing to pay their occupation tax. • t The professional men contend the city occupation tax is "discriminatory, exorbitant, unfair and burdensome" and refused to pay it. The tax it $50 a year each. Those who have been fined have announced they will appeal from the municipal court sentences to the circuit court. They charge that the Helena occupation tax "is double the amount charged in any city or town in the state, or possibly even the United States." The professional men said they were willing to pay a "reasonable" tax. State Contests Begin, Clarksville Annual Literary and Track Met to Close Saturday Night CLARKSVILLE, Ark.—(^-Clarksville almost was given over to high school students Friday as the annual state literary and track and field meet started with more than 1,000 contestants and visitors in attendance. Preliminaries in the track and field meet were held Friday afternoon. Finals will be run off Saturday afternoon. Part of the literary contests were held Friday night.

Atkins Tells Patmos Audience He and John P. Cox Speak on Kiwanis Good-Will Program soo CROWD" SCHOOL Club Cancels Columbus Tour, But Will Visit DeAnn May 19 A crowd estimated at 500 people welcomed the Kiwanis clubVon the second visit of their goodwill trips Friday night, when the auditorium of the Patmos school building was filled to overflowing. Lester Gordan principal of the Patmos school, welcomed the visitors from Hope. I "I believe there is no need for economic depressions in a well-ordered democracy," said W. S .Atkins in a talk on agriculture and its relation to society and government. "We have been promised that we would have a prosperity for all our farmers, by politicians, for all the years of my life, and no doubt before then," said Mr. Atkins. "Business and industrial conditions depend on whether the farmer can buy the thinks he needs, and its time we faced the facts ox present-day conditions," he continued. Concentration of Wealth "It was under-consumption and not over-production 'which brought the economic distress, since farmers are producing less than in former years. When our people face the facts and exercise their duties of citizenship by [becoming, well-informed on questions of'government, they can demand of government some-plans of .economics which will bring farming a greater share of the wealth of the nation, now concentrated in the hands of a few. Two per cent of our people control 60 per cent of our wealth, and this is one of the troubles of the present order." ; "Many, of the leaders of our nation came from just such communities as this," said Mr. Atkins, in paying tribute to the splendid school, and the attentive audience. Cox Also Speaks "We need character and good citizenship above all else," said John P. Cox in an inspirational address. . The Rev. Geo.'F. X. Strassner was chairman. He announced the Kiwanis essay contest on the subject, "What can we do as citizens for the main- taince and progress of our government?" This contest is open to all Hempstead county people, outside Hope special school district, between the ages of 15 and 20, inclusive. On May 19 the club will visit De- Ann. The engagement to Columbus for next Friday at Columbus may be cancelled because that is the date of the Hope senior class play. At the regular meeting of the club at the New Capital hotel, plans for a divisional conference of Kiwanis at Pine Bluff was announced by the Rev. Mr. 'Strassner, lieutenant governor. The date is May 17. Officers and directors of the Hope club were asked to attend. TouT^rChorlie?' Ananias Tells Story of Com and 25 Calves Here's a tale that will put Ananias in the shade! J. M. Yarberry of New Boston, Texas, came into The Star office Saturday. He told a weird story of a cow giving birth to 25 calves. Twenty-four of the calves werfci about the size of full-grown squirrels. The 25th calf was full developed, but born dead. The 24 smaler ones lived about three hours. The cow is owned by Carl Bartell, who lives two miles south of New Boston. Mr. Bartell is a neighbor of Mr. Yarberry. Mr. Yarberry said the 24 calves were placed in alcohol for preserving and scientific purposes. Today's Statgraph IINTEBNAL REVENUE \MMCHI935.

Crlmm made his first general call and invitation tb the congregation Friday night. Two persons made their way to the tabernacle altar to express their desire to unite in membership with the local churches. At the close of the revival the Rev. Mr. Crimm stated that all pastors of local churches will receive a list of names of those wishing to unite. > The subject of Friday night's sermon was, "God's Remedy for Sin!" The evangelist read his text from the third chapter of John, "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness ,so must the Son of Man be lifted up." In reading the text the evangelist stated: "To me this is the greatest text in the Bible. I shall never forget it the longest day I live. It was the text the preacher delivered his sermon from when I found the Lord. "It was a great hour, I have used it many times myself. Just how many times I don't know, but if I could preach the sermon from that text that I feel in my soul, just one time, I would be willing to lie down and die. "The new birth is a physical impossibility, but a spiritual necessity. If you hope to make heaven your home, you must be born again and experience this new birth for yourself. "You don't understand it. You don't understand physical birth. Both are mysteries of God. God is behind them and with a great God, all things are possible. We accept by faith." o»»p Arkansas Exports Greaterjor 1932 10 "4 Millions Against 8>/2 for 1931—Cotton Sales Jumped WASHINGTON.—(^-Arkansas ex-' ports—chiefly cotton—in 1932 were valued at $1,590,365 more than in 1931, the statistical division of the department of commerce announced today. The 1932 exports were valued at $10,248,110 as compared with $8,657,745 in 1931, an increase of about 18 per cent over the previous year which was accounted for chiefly by heavier foreign sales of unmanufactured cotton. Unmanufactured cotton and linters exported last year was valued at $8,228,911 as compared with $5,148,429 in the preceding year. Linters accounted for $31,440 of the 1932 volume. A sharp drop in the value of lumber exports was shown. The value of exports of boards, planks and scantlings last year was $540,326, compared Expects Quick Action WASHINGTON.^— -'Secretary Hul of the Department of State said Saturday,: in reply'to questioning, that he •hoped':the* essential objects and purpose's of, the worl deconomic conference,, to be held in London, June 12 would-be de.aU with within uncouple Hull said he entertained this hope because he considered the great national and world emergency required prompt action'at the conference as sembly June 12.

Needham Chapman Freed on a Bond of $6,000 Robber to Face Trial on Smackover Holdup in June EL DORAPO.— (yp)-June Brashear, alias Louis Jamison, 28 was returned from Tulsa, Okla. Friday and placed in jail to face charges of robbing the Smackover State Bank of approximately $6000 last January. He is the second suspect to be arrested in connection with the robbery. Charles Chapman, one time wealthy road contractor, and self styled "depression bandit,' 'has been charged with the robbery. It became known Friday that he has been released under $6000 bond for appearance at the June term of court. Brashear was arrested in Claremore, Okla., after being traced to Kansas City, Texas and then into Oklahoma. He declined to discuss the charges again him.

Kentucky Derby to Be Run Saturday Ladysman Favorite, With Head Play Choice of Old Kentucky LOUISVILLE, Ky.-It's Ladysman,' coupled with Pomonious and Fompo- leon as the Coe entry, against the field in the 59th renewal of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs Saturday at 5 p. m. C. S. T. If these three sons of Pompey, among which Ladysman was the outstanding two-year-old of 1932, are beaten, it might be any one of hix or eitht others carded in the overnight entries as possible starters. It's that kind of a race. Perhaps because he is Kentucky's choice and because every one in Kentucky knows and talks horses, Head Play a son of My Play, has more numerous and more vehement partisans than any of the others. He is expected t obe second choice in the mutual betting. Head Flay was sold unexpectedly Friday afternoon, for a cash price of $30,000, plus a percentage of possible derby winnings, and will race in the classic in the colors of Mrs. Silas B. Mason of Richmond, Ky. The handsome chestnut colt had been entered by Mrs. William Crump of Nashville, Tenn. The romantic background of the horse's ownership had caught the fancy of derby followers. Crump, well known for years as a rider and now a trainer, bought the colt at the Lexington yearling sales in 1931 for only $550 and turned the ownership over to his wife. It has been estimated that England spends $2ftQ,QQO,OOQ a year on sweets. Almost 350,000/tons of cundy we consumed annually. Storm Toll Since March 200 Lives Saturday Brings Alabama South Carolina Death List to 40 BIRMINGHAM, Ala.- & -Spring storms wreaking destruction from the Mississippi valley to the Atlantic seaboard left 40 known dead in their wake Saturday and raised to nearly 200 the total of lives taken by Southern tornadoes since March. Friday's twisters killed 22 in Alabama and 18 in South Carolina. The death toll of the South Carolina tornado reached 18 when three injured persons succumbed at an Anderson, S. C., hospital Saturday. Torrential rains followed the storm's path, and threatened serious damage in the Mississippi delta, where rivers already were swollen. The fall of the Tallahatche river, which has been flooding for several weeks, was checked by the deluge. Highways were awash. Three feet of water stood in sections of Water Valley, Miss. It was the second major Southern storm this week and the fourth since the middle of March. The death toll, in the series of tornadoes exceeds 170. The National Red Cross in Washington said five disaster relief workers had been sent to Helena. It was virtually demolished. The wind passed over Anderson, S. C., and dipped at Belton, 10 'miles away. Many houses were demolished and several score persons were hurt. Following is a revised list of the dead in the tornado in Alabama: At Helena: Carl Stober, Mrs. Walker Simmons, Helen Crim, Frances Kirkland, Miss Helen Jones, Mrs. N. D. Thomas, Virginia Foster, Orange Wilson, 9erth» May Ranshaw, Alfred MulUns and Mary Frances Yessick. At Ceuterville and Brent: Mrs, G. C.
