They guessed what was happening. The political office boys from out in the seventy-f iva counties had taken the.state capital by 'storm, With cajolery and threats and compromise they made themselves boss for a day! ' , I leave it to your, imagination to picture the scene in the Arkansas legislature— the county judges Of the seventy- five Counties bringing pressure to bear against vacillating and timid law-makers. Apparently it did not occur to the legis* lators that these 1 gentlemen AS mere county officials had no standing^ Little Bock, and should have been present only by invitation. This did/jnot occur to the law-makers— or if it did, they chose not to make a potent politicabenemy in official circles back hdttife : rind they gave in. We have it froni the record of the criminal conviction of Judge William Sibeck, of ; Pulaski county, that the president of 'the County Judges association, J. G. Ragsdale, of Union, contributed $2,500 to" the $17)300 slush fund which put over the 6-cent gas tax. Ragsdale refusing to talk, we are left to presume that this was a jack-pot gotten up by all the county rfsonie quarters this desire is something, likje .<$?. fhe ordinary people of ihe world do, not War, and they are rtfct enamored of the pros- v hundreds of millions of dollars, at a time |%D hungry, tQjjtippprt armfefivand fleets. - ; , , on the -eastern •had frienda^r.'rel owned stock in Id find a menacing Shanghai, for Business tradr; now that cru; and soldiers do?

Higgason, of our own county, thought enough of it to attend the lobby meetiflg at Little Rock a year ago— and while he says he voted 'against the 6-cent tax, you will note that the tax became a .law and that $17,000 additional ,was returned to He'mpatead, county last year, to be spent by Judge Higgason, " 'his own salary. 1 county judges " ~ ' boss for a day — but w^iat a ' ' .. , Their jugtlficfttlon of the otitm*f R«k would be faimMft *veii to nowi aboflng againet a monnta illtld at LittW ._ a -and with thf oidfefetfthfeywlfl A Sample of tht stuff tin judge* tn ttsfnf te defend the extra*eem\ ps tax, appears In what Judge J ,Q, Hill, of Pope county, slid after this wWs committee meeting: "If the Highway Depftt-tment wants to take the one- bent tax I am in favor of giving ft the three-mill county road tax also and requiring the state to' maintain all public roads of every type, regardless of loeation, The three-mill tax in my county wilt not replies culverts and small bridges as rapidly as heavily loaded trucks and speeding automobiles destroy them." Another committee spokesman said that the judges were only trying to do what the newspapers and the state administration haa advocated for several years—build farm-to- market roads, . \ < < In both statements the county judges' committee is guilty of deceit and treachery, Judge Hill talk* as though traffic conditions on the county roads had changed all of a sudden since 1927. You know that they haven't.

".'.'• In 19&1 the turn-backr-aided by the 6-cent gasoline tax "jumped to $45,000. Did this build any county roads? ftempstead 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-mill road tax—an average of more than $50,000 a year. Five years ago the road revenue of Hempstead was only the 3-mill tax, $17,000. What county roads has $60,000 a year built that $17,000 a year didn't build? As for the farm-to-market road program, the judges themselves have smashed it. Typical oi 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-officio member. The county commission would have hired or borrowed state engineers. The commission would have held the purse-springs. This didrft suit the county judges. They didn't warn) to build roads. All they wanted was enough money to shovel enough gravel in front gt 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 hew high salaries and for the benefit of their local political omlchine.—" uii ve vnitvuvBt wvciAo WW4W '*"r* V*.— MftWffJfc* 1 * Mi* Herbert Oftffih of Hf- Sutft CteBtffflMtt, Gcorgs < and Mr. tad" Mrs, t. *f.
