S. iways Available This Year— Penalize States Diverting Gas Tax WASHINGTON.—^) -Continuation of the federal government's emergency road building program at the present rate through the coming year was assured Monday. President Roosevelt signed a bill authorizing expenditure of $522,000,000 over a period of three years, $200,000,000 to be spent in the fiscal year beginning July 1. Approximately 5,000 projects are under way employing 240,000 men. They will continue on the job. The bill provides about half as much money as was made available in the emergency act of 1933 and makes allotments of funds to carry part of the program through 1937. Work now under way and part of that to be begun under the new authorization is financed by the federal government with states not required to match federal funds. Upon the conclusion of this program, however, rimd building will revert to the plan under way in 1931, 1932, and 1933, with states and the federal government sharing equally the cost. Funds made available Monday were distributed as follows: 0,000,000 for continuation of the ergency road building program, not than 25 per cent of which may be applied to secondary or "feeder" roads. 524,000,000 for immediate work on national park roads. $10,000,000 to be spent as relief funds for repairing or restoring roads damaged by floods or storms. $10,000,000 for forest highways. $125,000,000 for emergency highway construction in each of the fiscal years 1936 and 1937, these funds to be matched by states. $6,500,000 for building roads on public lands and Indian reservations during each of the fiscal years 1936 and 1937. $7,500,000 for building national park roads during each of the fiscal years 1936 and 1937. The new act provides that states which divert gasoline tax revenue to purposes other than for roads may be penalized to the extent of one-third of their apportionment of federal funds from 1936 to 1937, or succeeding years. It also lifts limitations on the use of federal funds for road construction in cities. The bureau was formerly limited to expenditures of $15.000 per mile, making it impossible to aid in .building roads in cities where construction costs were higher.

Teddy Jones Resigns as Hope Coach ganda pen of the publicity man. Many outside Arkansas people go touring this state every summer. Bobcat Leader to Join Chicago Book Firm This Month Faculty Member's Resignation Due to Deplorable School Finances TEXARKANA OFFER Jones Rejects Another Coaching Proposal to Enter Business Formal resignation of Coach Teddy Jones as a member of the faculty and athletic instructor in Hope High School, was announced here Tuesday in a letter Mr. Jones wrote to Miss Beryl Henry, advisory superintendent of Hope schools. Mr. Jones will leave this week for Chicago where he has accepted a position with Lyons & Carnahan, educational publishers. The resignation of the former Ouachita college football star and three- year coach of high school athletics here, comes as a shock to followers of the Bobcats and the entire community. The financial condition of Arkansas schools prompted Mr. Jones to break definitely from the teaching and coaching profession, the letter stated. Mr. Jones had contemplated such action for a long time, he said, but interest in coaching football and other phases of athletics, kept him here.

Many will go again this year. But when they come back home they talk mostly of what they have seen on their travels. I wonder what they say about the home state while they arc actually abroad. I wonder if Arkansas' own people are as enthusiastic abroad as these boys were when paying their first visit in the heat of a June day. Here's a suggestion, if you go on a trip this summer: Tell the other folks something about Arkansas' new highway system, that there arc places on the Texarkana-Memphis road with 25-mile straightaways, and that the slate with the most miles of navigable river in the whole United States has replaced every major ferry crossing with a costly modern bridge. We've talked so long about bonds and debts and gasoline taxes and politics that it's time we got some dividends out of what is really one of the great public construction achievements of the United States—the building of a complete state highway system in Arkansas since 1927.

Acid Burns Lend Murder Mystery Texas Woman Is Held in Slaying of Illinois Dentist Congress WASHINGTON Adjourns — (ff)— Congress finally quit Monday night with party independents in command and its program a little more than complete. That little more was the price of adjournment exacted by the insurgents in a bold last minute drive which crushed the opposition of the Democratic leadership. It consisted of the Dill railway labor disputes adjustment act, pushed through to enactment even over the decision of President Roosevelt to let it go to the next -congress. Senator Hastings, Republican, Deleware, conducted a persistent one-man talking match against the bill but learning that the Democratic leaders had capitulated to the insurgents and decided to wait him out, he abandoned his tacics. End Comes Quickly With the measure out of the way, the end came quickly through the a- doplion of a conference report on the administration housing bill, last remaining item on the Roosevelt program and in house acceptance of senate amendments to the rail bill. The day also saw the independents avoiding .strikes. The union proposal suggested a three-member hoard to handle complaint^ to mediate in cases of disputes ,;md to order and hold elections and transact other matters. 2,000 Pounds of Barbecue for 4th Fair Park Being Placed in Shape for Fireman's Holiday Event Approximately 2,000 pounds of barbecued meat and 75 gallons of "hush puppy" is on the menu for those who participate in the Fourth July celc- oration her sponsored by Hope Fire department.

A wrangle over this measure and a filibuster for it by Long of Louisiana were important contributing causes of the abandonment of carefully made plans to end the session on Saturday night. In addition action was completed during the day on the second deficiency bill carrying more than $2,000,000,000 of appropriations largely for relief expenditures. The slow progress of conferees on the housing bill, who weer in session throughout the day gave the independents their opportunity to force through their railway bill. Early in the day they began by an announcement by Wheeler, Democrat, Montana, that he and others would filibuster against adjournment unless and until the railway bill was enacted. Robinson of Arkansas protested vigorously. He said he was for the bill but had been informed that the opposition to it would cause an extensive prolongation of ffie session. Then he brought President Roosevelt into the situation. Quotes President. "The president thinks, and I think/' he said, "that if the measure is to be taken up and indefinitely discussed it had better go over until the next session. It is not of emergency measure." Wheeler and other independents replied with their threat that "unless we do get a chance to vote on it, I and a number of other senators will do our best to keep the congress from adjourning until such time as we do get an -. r >uortunity for a vote." The insurgents were not to be thrarted. Dill moved the bill be made the senate's unfinished business and Hastings began his filibuster, carrying out a warning that he was prepared to speak indefinitely.

This ij the first defection from government ranks since the resignation of Dr. Aldrcn Hugcnbcry as minister of economics and agriculture last June. Nadolny's resignation, withheld from the public until Monday t dates back to the middle of May when he vainly tried to persuade Chancellor Adolf Hitler to accept Russia's proposal to a non-aggression pact—a proposal also favored by the Foreign Office.
