John Duty said he did not know that his brother Claud passed on the claim, and Claud Duty said hc never knew that his brother John and House divided thc contingent fee, XXX And now we come to the beginning of 1933. On January 7th of that year Thc Star told how General Norwood gave a ?2,800-feo to a lawyer to collect the state's deposit in the closed Arkansas Bank & Trust Co., of Hope, whose private depositors collected their dividends without any expense whatever. The Star said editorially January 7, 1933: When the Arkansas Bank & Trust Co. closed there was $70,000 in state funds on deposit. The • local records show that the liquidating agent remitted five dividend checks of $7,000 each to the state treasurer at Little Rock. Ths."s all that shows in the record here—but from Little Rock this paper learned that after three 10 per cent dividends had been recovered for the state, totaling 521,000, Attorney General Norwood suddenly appointed a ^'special counsel" to "protect" thc state's interests. This counsel came in on the last two dividend checks for a 20 per cent fee. The last two dividends paid the state 514,000—but Ben Shaver, of Texarkana eot $2,800 of that money. ' B Later that same spring, this happened, reported editorially in Hope Star May 18, 1933: Attorney i,General Hal Norwood wrote an opinion Wednesday May 17. authorizing the state treasurer to pay off old highway warrants, under $100 apiece, but asked that no announcement be made until rhursday. The Attorney General then left town. Somebody had tipped off the Little Rock banks, and between the time of the Attorney General's order and the 4 o'clock closing hour .«'«?,? y , attemoon the banks and others on the "inside" cashed 535,000 worth of these old warrants, many of which had been discounted for speculative purposes us low as 30 cents on the dollar. All of tliis was going on while the public remained unadvised that (hf state treasurer was ready to redeem the scrip. A Creed "There is always plenty of public sentiment against public wrongs.

M. Kulrcll brought a message of encouragement to voters of Hcmpstead county in a campaign speech on the First Baptist church Jawn here Fridiiy afternoon. Introduced by John P. Cox, Hope druggist, Governor Futrell reviewed hi.s campaign promises, and asserted his program had been put through successfully. "My first step ;ifter faking the oath of office was to set up » sinking fund of 20 per cent of all general revenues that would eiidble the slate to cut down its indebtedness," hc said. "We could not increase taxes to run the government, but resorted lo a drastic retrenchment program that saw salaries reduced and seven state departments abolished, resulting in a e overnor J. Marion Kutrell net saving of several hundred thousand dollars. "I promised you that the cost o government would be cut in half. We have done more than that. Cost o government liai been reduced 51 per cent. It is taking 49 cents to run this government today where it formerlj required one dollar. It is the first time in the history of the United States where u governor lias cut expenses in half during his first administration." Saved From Foreclosure Touching on the high way. refunding act, Governor Kulrell tod of its benefits, asserting (hat "if the refunding law had not been passed, every courl in this statc would have ijccn clogged f ' vvith foreclosures of bond mortgages The people would havc lost their homes. "The accumulated sums great that the taxpayers could not pay. If there happened to be one who could pay, he was not protected, since his land was liable for what others failed to pay ot the extent of assessed benefits. "The refunding program has restored the good name of Arkansas and has placed the state in a better position in financial circles over the country for paying its honest debts. The refunding program also gave to the State Hospital for Nervous Diseases $500,000, and saved the people from either having the stale hospital abandoned or adidtional taxes imposed." Referring to the school situation, governor Futrel! said "the schools u-ere wrecked many years before I ever thought of running for governor. £th Gr?'Je Graduste ' My idea is that the slate owt-s 'a gratturar iehoo! education iirst and foremost to a!! its children.

No rain fell ir, 16 months, Hamr.-.or.d said, Coving to Little Rock. During his ears with the lumber company he studied law and was admitted to the: bar soon after his arrival in Lilt Rock. His advancement there has bee steady, and although he has in a] most every instance faced heavy odd he has continued his policy of at tempting to aid in the cleansing o Arkansas 1 politics and biulding a gov ernment of, for and by the people. After service as deputy prosecuttn = attorney, Mr. Bailey asked the people of the Sixth Judicial District to elec him prosecuting attorney, and th did. He was unapposeti ior a seconc erm. During his tenure as prosecuting attorney, he has prosecuted many criminal cases successfully, but the majority of his time has been occu- )ied in handling litigation for Pu- aski county and the state, which has esulted in a saving to the taxpayers n actual cash of more than 53,000,000. Stops "Marriage Insurance" Early in 1932, he prosecuted several mportant criminal cases before civil matters arose to take up so much of his time. After a thorough investigation, the found the so-called "marriage insurance" companies established at Little Rock to bt nothing more than a racket and these he forced out of the state. Within a few months after he entered iffice, the county govrnment in Pulaski county cam to his attention. He caused to be invalidated a county bond issue of $325,000, which would have cost the taxpayers of that county, through a special mileage tax, S559, 000.00. Recoveries on warrants cashed, and cancellation of warrants and claims of three concerns dealing with the county weie responsible for a direct saving of more than $35,000.00. Indictments were returned and two men sent to the penitentiary as the result cf this investigation. The American Exchange Trust Co., failsd two months after he assumed office, and one of his first investigations involved the dangerous banking practices which had cost the people of this state an enormous a~iount of money.

Power "yardstick" BOONEVILLE, Ore. -(tf>)-R et urn- ng to the continent after a sea vaca- •.lon, President Roosevelt in an address Friday said the government would use its great river development projects as "yardsticks" on electrical power costs. At the site of the $31,000,000 Bonne- yille dam project, one of the two great federal undertakings on the Columbia river, Mr. Roosevelt envisioned deepening of the stream to permit ocean-going traffic as far as Dallas, Ore., and said barge navigation might eventually be extended far into Wash- ngton and Idaho. The president referred to the Northwest, in which he is just starting an •nspection trip, as a potential future homeland for people now in overcrowded places or on wornout land. "The power that we are developing here is going to be power which for all time is going to be controlled by the government," the chief executive said. Reltrats "Yardsticks" Needed Recalling that when he was in Portland as a presidential candidate two years ago he said the principles of government needed "yardsticks" so that peopel in this country will know whether they are paying the proper price for the electricity of our times" Mr. Roosevelt added: "I conceived the idea that the gov- u-nmcnt could create yardsticks. One las already been started on the Colorado 1 river (Boulder Dam). Two other yardsticks have been undertaken—he Tennessee an dthe Columbia—and the fourth—the St. Lawrence—is going to be started." The resident referred also to old- age benefits and unemployment insurance as future possibilities when he said: .., D Jr? uty Sheriff B. A.
