Ragsdale refusing to talk, we are left to presume that this was a jack-pot gotten up by all the county judges.. It was worth their while to do so. JudgegjL. F. Higgason, of our own county, thought enough of'it to attend the lobby meeting at Little Rock a year ago—and while he says he voted against the 6-eent tax, you will note that the tax became 1 01 law and; that ?1T,QOO additional was returned to ataadiflountylaattyear,,to be spent by Judge Higgason, T^ti^r/h^awnsaafa^yA , • . • county judges' Wi&m boss for a day—but what a , Their justfffu&tion of the outrtf** *»fanlttcd at Little „„ ---a^JWBibteWWkJl if i vate oitiirttt raboftojt agaftwt ft moQfiiam at all.

Judge Kill talks aa though traffic conditions on the county roads had changed all of a sadden since 1927. You know that they haven't. Beginning with the Martineau road legislation; in 1927, the county judges began to draw a gasoline tum-6ack fund from the state. Thia amounted to $29,000 a year in Hempstead county.

In 1981 the turn-back—-aided by the 6-cent gasoline tax •jumped to $46,000. Did this build any county roads? Hempatead county has received back from the state government $100,000 in road money in the last three years, on top of the $17,000 a year from the 3-mfll road tax—an average of more than $50,000 a year. Five years ago the road revenue of Hempstead was only the S-mill tax, $17,000. What county roads has $50,000 a year built that $17,000 a year didn't build? As for the farm-to-market road program, the judged themselves have smashed it. Typical of locally-minded politicians, they grabbed the money and let the construction go. You, reading this newspaper the last three years, know what the original farm-to-market program was—a turnback fund from the state, to be administered by a county road commission, an honorary body with the county judge as ex-of f icio member. The county commission would have hired or borrowed state engineers. The commission Would have held the purse-springs. This diditft suit the county judges. They didn't wanj; to build roads. All they wanted was enough money to shovel enough gravel in front pf enough voters' homes to get themselves re-elected. They defeated the state program, and engaged in the sordid business of building up a slush fund to put through the legislature a new high tax for their own new high salaries and for the benefit of their local politic«l»niichin€.—\ ftar.
