S. Atkins, city attorney, announced Tuesday in the political column of The Star that he-wopld be a candidate for- ra-'election in 'the- Democratic city primary February 23> -• > Mr. Atkins made the following campaign statement: "Since April, 1931, I have held the office of city attorney. As to how well I have served in this capacity, I shall not assume the province of de- terminig, but am willing for my record, and the other City Officials, with whom I have co-operated, to answer in this respect.. Compensation Not Increased "The compensation of -the city attorney from January 1, 1930, to March 31, 1931, inclusive (fifteen months,) amounted to $985.00, plus the fees collected 1 by him for prosecutions and convictions in the mayor's court, which amounted to a, considerable sum. Therefore ,the city is paying to me, as city attorney, $15.60 per month less than it paid to my predecessor during the fifteen months Immediately preceding my election to said position. And this is true without taking into consideration the fees collected by my predecessor from prosecutions and convictions had in the mayor's court. "Prior to the 1930 government census report Hope was a city of the second-class, and under the law governing such cities the council fixed the monthly salary of the city attorney at $25 per month, which was nothr ing more or less than a monthly retainer's fee for his work in an advisory way and drawing ordinances for the city, and the law permitted the council to pay him for any additional work performed by him for the city, and, also, permitted him to collect the same fees for prosecutions and convictions in the mayor's court as is paid to the prosecuting attorney, Law Governing First-Class Cities Different "The law governing cities of the first-class (Section 7693 of Crawford & Moses' Digest of the Statutes of Arkansas) provides that the city council shall fi* the salary of the city at- Itorney, "and that he shall not in any instance receive any additional compensation." Therefore, regardless of the amount of work to be done the •ity attorney cannot receive more than the monthly salary fixed by the city county. Candidate to Succeed- Himself "I am a candidate to succeld myself is city attprney, subject to the action of the Democratic primary tp be held February 23, 1932. The city attorney does not have any voice in fixing the salaries and compensation to be paid u employees .of the city, and has no authority whatever with respect to he executive management of the city, or any department of the city govern- nent. As a taxpayer, however, I wish to say that I favor only such, compensation as is necessary to insure efficient service. "1 am a Democrat; have always voted the Democratic ticket, and have never .run for office or solicited the vote of the people on anything other than the Democratic ticket. I will appreciate your vote and influence, and assure yo 'uthat it shall' be my constant ambition and controlling purpose to administer the affairj of the office of 'city attorney honestly, efficiently and faithfully -to the end that our City may eon'inue to prosper. Spring Term For Schools Uncertain Despitej)ecision Supreme Court Legalizes Debt at $80,200— But Loan Yet to Come $17,000 JSJNEEDED Officials Are Uncertain Whether Legal Advantage Can Be Followed Up Hope public schools won the legal right to maintain a floating indebtedness of $80,200, by a decision of the Arkansas Supreme Court Monday— but conlainuance of the schools during the spring .semester still remained doubtful as the Board of Education sought to borrow up to the full limit. The supreme court decision cleared the way for the school directors to' make a legal debt, but officials were uncertain Tuesday that they would be able to obtain fthe money. Hope's floating school debt at the time the school fecodification act,, No. 169, was passed by the legislature this time last year, was ?80,200, arid ' the school directors sought to establish this as their legal limit. .The board's present floating 'debt is $55,000, with an additional $8,000 to crjme out for interest on the school building bonds, a total of $63,000. Establishing the legal limit at, $80,200, therefore, yould give.the board $17,200 to finish the spring semester on, povid- ing the money can be borrowed. A test suit to' establish the $80,200 legal limit Was filed in Hempstead circuit court last month by the Hempstead County Bar association,, and Judge Dexter' Bush ruled for the .ttt .by' the siiprerne court priday.) •< ' El DoradoWoman •To Be Club (iuost ii~\v> ~ ( U "ililii« u B. & P.

Purkins rented the store-room, and established the Arkansas Evening Herald, Hope's first daily newspaper. Hoy Stephenson, Hope bank employe and • city councilman, and Forrest Shelton, had charge of the circulation department, unon a commission a- rangement. Both had just entered the long-trouser age, Harry Shiver, local plumbing contractor, was on their staff of news boys. Harry Young, now a successful newspaperman of Oklahoma City, was another "paper boy." Mr. Stephenson tells how a road show or a circus was the best stimul- lant for subscription collections. Immediately after school, his partner Shelton and himself and the entire staff of boys combed their routes for collections so they might have enough commissions to buy tickets and popcorn. But sometimes they had 1 to work right up to show time, in order to make enough. DuVall Purkins, aow state senator from Wairen, and publisher of the Warren Eagte-Rempcrat, was city editor of the Arkansas Evening Herald at that time. He bad the reputation of being oy$ of the best news editors Hope's papers huve ever had. The paper 5 columns in width, and 17 inches deep—slightly more than half the size of the present Hope Star. Later in 1916 Mr. Purkins bought the Hope Gazette from the estate of Col. W. W. Folsom, who had died that year, and turned it into a weekly edition of the Evening Herald. Chris Westerman, present job printer for The Star, went with the Gazette, and was in the employ of Mr. Purkins for several months. • In 1923 he sold to C, C. Williams, of Little Rock, and Erie Turner. Mr. Turner now is news editor of The Star. After a few months they sold to George B. SmJl^of Cterenden. Mr. Smith leased the paper immediately, however, to a man from Texas, who endeavored to keep the publication going as a weekly. He suspended, however, after three or four issues. Mr. Smith, meanwhile, operated the plant as a conunercial job printing shop, the purpose for which he had originally bought it. . Curtis Cannon bought the plant in July, 1926, and started publication of the HempsteacJ County Review, a weekly. Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Gean bought out Cannon h> July, 1927, and in the following September changed the paper to the Hope Daily Press, a morning newspaper. Alex. H. Washbujn, present publisher of the' Star, and C. E- Palmer, bought the Press pn January 18, J929. and consolidated it with the Star of Hope, evening dftijly, which had been published by Ed McC«rkle and his 1 father as weekly and daily since 1899, in various logons, throughput the business district oj the city.
