Leonard, according to word from Little RockA The total oxtra taxation on the final quarter was $263,171, making from a million to a million and a quarter dollars total additional tax fixed on the state in 1931 when the county judges persuaded the legislature to raise the gasoline tax from 5 to 6 cents n gallon for th? sokc of local revenue. All of the extra-cent collections arc segregated at Little Rock and paid back to the counties on a basis of population, area, and car license revenue. The amounts paid into the state and received back by South- w^jfcAjJtansas counties during the four\riaad final quarter of 1931 : were as follows: ; .

The first "deadline" expired Scnday, January 10, but the governor granted the customary extension. , Last year the license-paying time was extended until March 1, but within the next 60 days the state government faces a demand of 2V4 million dollars for bond and.Interest payments on highway and 'old ' road district ' bonds. High Auto Licenses . Although Arkansas has one of the highest motor vehicle license taxes' in America, no reduction appeared possible this year, owing to the decline in the gross collection on the gasoline tux and the diverting of one-sixth of such revenue to the county governments, where it was used for the grading of dirt roads and part-payment of county judges' salaries. Governor Parnell snid, in announcing the final license-payment extension, that he regretted it would be impossible to give additional extensions as in years past, but the state faces a crisis which makes immediate collection imperative. Total debt demands on the state, for new highway and old district bonds, aniount this year to lOVfe million dollars. Last year's combined state revenues from the gasoline and auto taxes amounted to only 9 million dollars— but nearly 3 millions in bond and gasoline tax revenues was diverted from the state treasury to the treasuries of the 75 counties. May Escape Properly Tux The State Highway Department said ' Saturday night that despite the 1V4 million possible deflict appearing in the 1932 budget, they di dnot believe it would be necessary to restore the road improvement district tax that was levied before passage of the Martineau road legislation. Under the law, the state, which now gets only 5 cents from the 6-cent gasoline tax, is empowered to seize the extra cent which goes to the counties, in the event this is necessary to protect the bonded indebtedness of the state and the old road improvement districts. As the counties have already lost the greater share of their "turnback" funds, derived from a 12V4 per cent ."cut" in bond sales, amounting to $28,000 a year in Hempstead county, the further loss of \he one-cent gasoline tax, which approximates $17,000 a year in this county, would completely extinguish the "turnback." The critical point in state highway financing continues through 1937, while the bulk of the old road improvement district indebtedness is being written off, and before retirement p|'the Martineau indebtedness is be Slayer of Marion McLean Is Held t . . :' • > Clarence Bischoff, 45-Year-Old Shoemaker AdmiU Killing Six-Year-Old Cincinnati, Ohio Girl Who Disappeared on December 17th by Bischoff, who Was the first to. report discovery of the body.

This was assured Sunday in high administration circles. Anxious to avoid creation of cross currents in congress that might impede' action on his emergency program, Hoover has set no definite date for transmitting them. One deals with law enforcement, with no special attention to prohibition; the other contains details of the proposed wholesale reorganization of government departments. Determined to eliminate overlapping activities to reduce the cost of government, it was learned that (he pres- dent, nevertheless, has cooled toward proposals to consolidate the army and lavy into a single department. In authoritative quarters the chief executive's attitude was outlined us follows: He objects, first, to the elimination of a member from his cabinet, which would be necessitated b,y a general anny-navy consolidation. Graves Dug for Two Young Brothers in Mo. SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — (#>)— Fifteen men Sunday dug through the hall frozen ground of the tiny McCauley cemetery, near Ozark, Mo., to make two graves for the bodies of Harry and Jennjngs Young, stayers of six peace officers near here January 2. Although the bodies of the two men, who killed themselyes in Houston, Texas, rather than submit to capture, still are being kept in hiding, it is understood burial will take pj*ce af- er dark Sunday.

Mrs. Louise Ehrhardt, 73, received burns from-which she .died when her residence was destroyed by fire. The fire- followed an explosion of gas. Her daughter, Miss Julia Ehrhardt, 36, was seriously, but not' fatally, burned, on her face and hands. Nine were injured, one seriously, in a fire which swept the Desoto' hotel, on the second floor of a building. Three other establishments in, the same block were damaged. J. E. Eslill, 42, was in a critical condition from burns over most of his body. He was burned as he fled down rear stairs from the hotel.

Some of th«r$3 guests leaped from windows while others made their ways down firemen's ladders, Few completely-dress«di *;v- -..^Jt-..'.' 'For 'a 'time it-"was-feared there had been considerable loss of life, and firemen searched the ruins for bodies. It was determined, however, none had died in the flames. The hall of the hotel was turned into a roaring inferno shortly after the fire broke f rom the kitchen. Through it some, guests ran seeking means of exit. Ernest Potter, who previously had lost his legs, saved himself by leaping from a window, and walking away from the fire on his hands. He was burned on the neck. Jack Currie, a guest, said he smell- cd smoke and ran to the kitchen. He flung open the door to be met with a rush of flames. The flames broke through the door almost as he closed it again and ran to awaken the guests. 1 He helped an aged man to escape down the front steps and returned to aid several children in flight.. The children lived in the hotel with their parents. One woman leaped from her window and landed on an awning, whence she was rescued by firemen with a ladder. Another woman leaped to the ground. Mrs. Walter Wright, who was HI, ran from the burning building wit* her three-months-old baby in her arms. The hotel had 34 rooms.

Dept. Agriculture)— The Cotton market during-the period .January 2 to 8 vfitnessed^ a steady undertone with price flucta- tipns narrow. > , |3pth foreign ^and^ domestic ..djBpJB was sai'd' to have continued rather slow and although' merchants seemed more willing to offer their cottons for sale the basis asked was considered rather high by manufacturers with the result that actual trading was' only In small quantities for immediate mill needs. It was said on the other hand however that the selling basis. for grades in the lower range was again somewhat easier. The grades and lengths of staple mostly inquired for were middling and lower 7-8 inch and 15-16 inch. Average price middling as compiled from quotations of the 9 designated markets New Orleans, holiday Jan. 8 was 5.99 cents compared with 5.95 cents for same 9 months December 31, and 9,27 cents January 9 a year ago. Reported sales of spot cotton by the ten markets were somewhat lighter than for week before. According to Weather Bureau for week ending January 5 the weather was generally too wet for field work and outside operations on farms were largely at a standstill. Rains for the week were helpful however in replen- ising soil moisture in the middling uml north Atlantic states. Exports to January 8th this season amounted to about 4,200,000 bales compared with like amount for corresponding period last season. According to the Department cf Commerce, China, took more American raw cotton during 1931 than in any year in the history of the Chinese-American trade. Exports to Japan and China combined to date this season amount to about 1,700,000 bales, against about 725,000 for thd same period previous season. Exports to all other major importing countries of American cotton are considerably behind a 'year ago with the exception of Italy, which country has taken so far a little more than a year ago. It was said that the increase in takings of American cotton by the Orient is partly due to the relative cheapness of American cotton compared with East Indian and Chinese. Stocks of American cotton at European ports are considerably smaller than a year ago and on December 31 stocks at Liverpool, Manchester and at continental ports amounted to about 1,100,000 bales against about 1,600,000 on the corresponding day last season. According to the Financial Chronicle world-takings of all growth of cctton to December 31 this season amounted to 8,800,000 bales, of which 6,400,000 were American compared with 8,000,00 a year ago, of which 5,600,000 were American.
