H. Washburn The country judge to whom Hempstead county gave 78 per cent of its entire vote two years ago is up next Tuesday for re-election as governor. This newspaper has faith in Futrell. We believe he should be re-elected. But there are men in the Futrell administration we can't say as much for. Some of those men personally hate Carl Bailey, candidate for attorney general—and we recommend that if you want t.o endorse the best part of the Futrell administration and keep a check on the worst part vote for Futrell for governor and Bailey for attorney general. The old governor's "friends" have let him in for some deserved criticism in months past. Howard Reed's daughter, speaking in Hope Tuesday night, scored Futrell for three things: 1. Reading Carroll D. Wood out of the Democratic primary in order to hand-pick C. E. Johnson for chief justice. 2. Putting 14 Futrell kinsmen on the state's payroll. 3. Using convict guards at the state penitentiary. You read these things FIRST in Hope Star. You read editorial criticism of these things FIRST in Hope Star. If one mistake of Futrell's has been kept under cover I don't know what it is.. But on the other hand, every governor's campaign you ever heard of has been fought upon the ancient issues of ermnnillee despotism, the hiring of relatives, mishandling of the state penitentiary, and horri- .ble conditions at, the .state .asylum. ... . XXX Futrell hasn't done much on these ancient questions, which, like the tariff, go on forever. He has been too busy on the hardest political problems that ever face a statesman, and the most unpopular—the reduction of state expenses and the refunding of the public debt. Fulrcll is hated by the old statehouse crowd. The hand of every disappointed job-holder is set against him—for he said he would cut the state's running expense in half, and he did. Here's comes Howard Reed, for S ! /2 years comptroller, heading an army of professional political job-holders under two past administrations. They want to throw Futrell out. There's nothing wrong with Howard Reed personally. Neither is there anything wrong with Governor Futre!! personally. It's just a matter of who's behind them, and how many. Reed rode with the army of statehouse em- ployes down the road to state bankruptcy. Futrell has brought Arkansas back up that road part-way—for one reason, because he carried fewer with him. It is incredible that the people will turn their backs on the man they elected to rescue them in 1932 arid go over to the rnan who was in high office from 1927 until Futrell put him out. XXX Thfc mistakes of Futrell are fresh in memory from 3'esterday's headlines. The mistakes of Howard Reed are buned in the bocks of 1927-32. Let's leave them there. Bailey Lashes Out at Leffel Gentry in Audience Here Declares Norwood Agents Are Conducting Whispering Campaign FHE LAW MACHINE Bailey Describes Workings of Norwood's Special Counsel Carl Bailey swept into Hempstead county Tuesday afternoon in his march upon the attorney general's office of Arkansas with a speech upon the lawn of the First Baptist church that is probably the best slump address heard in thin city this ycnr. Mr. Bailey, Pulaski county prosecuting attorney who is opposing Attorney General Norwood in a two-man race, wan introduced by A. H. Washburn, and spoke from a sound truck that ha;: carried the candidate to 72 cities and towns in every section of the itnte. Mr. Bailey said: "The present attorney general wrote me two years ago a letter of congratulations for my legal accomplishments i as prosecutor of the Sixth district. Today he has changed his mind. "Norwood has used the attorney general's office to hire lawyers to do things which the taxpayers were vl- ready paying Norwood to do. "As prosecuting attorney I have represented all the county officess. I told them I didn't need to hire outside lawyers. As prosecuting attorney I would represent, them in all official county matters. "Nobody got surd for following my .•pinion:;. "The reason for that is, I gave only one opinion on each question. "Eccoml-Cla-is Lawyer" "You sec, as Norwood says, I'm only a second-class lawyer. "Maybe when I prow older, and more experienced, I"ll learn how to give two opinions on each question— and become a first-class lawyer like your present attorney general. "A first-class lawyer, they tell me, i:i a lawyer slick enough to get into cfficc and hire other lawyers to build up .1 politirnl machine. ''Norwood has done that. "He has hired so many special counsels that they are some closed banks in Arkansas where the lawyers have gotten more money than all the depositors put together. "And in some cases this has happened in communities where the public Northwest Desert Is Given Promise Roosevelt Puts in Wednesday Visiting Mayo Clinic ROCHESTER, Minn. —(JP)— President Roosevelt shared the spotlight Wednesday with Rochester's most famous citizens, the Mayo brothers, qs the city combined its entertainment for the chief executive with honoring the great turgeoils. rvoorevc-i T . pruti-L-d ihe world-re- r-ownecl physician?., Drs.

I have been told that he bought 3,000 copies of the paper. Only you and Bailey know whether he agreed to do this as a consideration for you giving him the boost. The editorial says that I says that am opposed by a buck private. That is a lie- and you knew it when you wrote it. You made the false statement to try to create the impression that Bailey was n soldier in the World war, when you Know he was not. Two of my boys were at the front when the Armistice was signed. You said that 1 was reversed by the supreme court on the cost-plus contract opinion. You know that opinion was written without my know- edge by Claude Duty, who was at that time an assistant attorney general, and that 1 brought the suit to invalidate all cost-plus contracts and was sustained by the supreme court. The assistant who wrote the opinion is now supporting Carl Bailey and gave a dinner /or Carl Bailey at the l_,ane Hotel in Rogers on April 21, when Bailey announced his candidacy for attorney general. You criticize me for holding that under an act passed in 1933 holders of warrants of less than ?100 against the highway fund should be paid in cash. I did give this opinion and it is true that the supreme court held that under the technical terms of the act this could not be done. My views were so absolutely correct that afterwards a special session of the legislature passed an act directing that the warrants be paid in cash just as I had held that they jihould have been paid under the first act. You say that Norwood's agents are slandering Carl Bailey. I think you lied about that Your readers would probably have been glad to know of what this slander consists. • My time is too valuable to try to answer all of your false and misleading article. 1 am, with my usual contempt for you, Yours Truly. ' HAL L. NORWOOD • Candidate for Attorney General 'August 7, 1934 Little Rock, Ark. P. S. If your readers wish to know 'about how the affairs of the attorney •general's office are conducted I wish they would ask Leffel Gentry, a Hempstead county boy who is now connected with the attorney general's Office. XXX Now I'll talk a while. Hal Norwood is wrong when he says Carl Bailey bought 3,000 copies of last Saturday's Star from me. He didn't buy 3,000—he bought 5,000. What he paid me was the cost of the extra white paper—and if Bailey hadn't been able to stand that much I'd have paid it out of my own pocket. I'd go hungry to rid my state of an office-holder like Norwood—and he knows it. This newspaper smashed him in this county two years ago wher we endorsed Boyd Cypert for attorney general. Today we arc backing Carl Bailey for the same purpose—to beat Norwood. And if Bailey doesn't beat him we'll /Continued on Page Three) Routine Business for City Council Report of City Health Board > Filed But Is Withdrawn Routine business was practically all that was brought before the city council at its meeting Tuesday night.

He has been in public life for 50 years, holding oifice ever since he was 20, by special dispensation of the legislature. ''You would think that hi those 50 years he would have a record on which to build his campaign—but no. Instead of that, he builds his entire campaign on my own measley 3V4-year record as a prosecuting attorney. "He isn't campaigning on the record —he is making his campaign a personal villification of me. "His henchmen are circulating slanderous stories about my private life—ctnriEs they can't prove and dare not put in print. Lcife!

New Crop Loans Will "Peg" Price Farmers to Be Required to Hold for Certain Market Level Copyright Assaciated Press WASHINGTON— (JP) -A gigantic crop loan plan which would leave control of 1935 supplies in the hands of farmers who grow them is hatching in the Farm Administration. Modeled after this year's corn and cotton loans, the plan will call for government loans on a wide range of other crops. There will be a stipulation that supplies must be sold when prices rise to 3. certain point. Last year the government advanced farmers 10 cents a pound on stored cotton, and 45 cents a bushel on corn sealed cribs or warehouses. This 9.195.000 Miss Reed Scores Futrell for Not Accepting Debate Candidate's Daughter Attacks Governor's Record in Speech Here CITES WOOD CASE Hand-Picked Judge, Hired Own Family, Used Convict Guards Howard Reed's school - teacher daughter, Miss Bernice Reed, stood on the stage at the First Baptist church lawn Tuesday night and told a Hope audience why she believed her father should replace Governor They Do Debate MORRILTO'N, Ark. — Governor Futrell and Howard Reed, his opponent for the Democratic nomination for governor, met in a verbal battle that lasted approximately four hours and a half here Tuesday. Governor Futrell began speaking at 3 p. m. and spoke about an hour and a half. Before he completed his speech, Reed arrived and spoke as soon as the governor had finished. He criticized Futrell for two hours and the governor came back with a 30-minute rebuttal. Reed spoke for 15 minutes and Governor Futrell gave a 10-minute rejoinder. pegged prices at those levels and officials say the plan was a success. As prices advanced beyond those levels recently farmers began selling crops, paying off loans and making a profit for themselves. The farmer was continuously assured of at least those prices and the government was sure of recouping its investment as long as the price stayed at or above the loan value. In the case of cotton, the plan said it must be sold when the price reached 15 cents. This, officials said, prevents the price from rising too far since the flow to market when cotton reaches that point will tend toward stabilization. The Farr/. Administration declares the idea will assist farmers in holding their crops insead of selling at harvest time when marketings are ordinarily heavy and prices consequently low. They will thus be able- to obtain some cash, keep their crops readily marketable as needed ,ar.d sell them s.t any tin-.e the price ranges between va'.uo and the upper liiit. O£.*a.Y. WOU.C* IX; CO-Ccd«~.ulCCi Futrell, who is seeking re-election. She was introduced by Dr. Don Smith. "My father," she said, "was appointed slate comptroller by Governor Martineau in 1927 and served in that capacity five and a half years. "Governor Futrell constantly reminds the people of that fact, and ac- cuseB my- father.,of all kjnds.of crimes. But when my father was comptroller the office was merely a bookkeeping job, with a small appropriation, and its authority was limited to checking the legislature's figures. Today the comptroller has vastly different powers. Deviling the Governor "We challenged Governor Futrell to meet my father in a debate in 10 cities, he to pick five, and my father to pick five. But Governor Futrell wouldn't do it. He knew if he accepted he'd have to prove his charges against my father; and he knew if he refused we would devil him to death —and we're doing that. "Governor Futrell has transferred the Arkansas political machine from the highway department to the revenue department. The revenue department which under Parnell cost $398,000, is costing under Futrell ?!,006,000. "Futrell boasts that he carried out his pledge to lower automobile licenses by one-half—but he omits mentioning the fact that he raised the gasoline tax. "He lowered passengercar licenses but raised truck licenses. "He says he has reduced the running expense of state government by 50 per cent. But he doesn't tell you that under his administration the state hasn't built a mile of highway with state funds. : 'He doesn't tell you that 2,000 schoolhouses are closed. "He doesn't tell you that for two months the state treasury office was locked up tight and therefore they couldn't spend anything. "Governor Futrell says it is undemocratic of my father to oppose him for a second term. But what's a second term for if not to repudiate unfaithful public servants? Betrayal oi Wood "Governor Futre!! wasn't a good Democrat himself when he kept Carroll D. Wood, a life-long Democrat, off the part yticket so that his own campaign manager might be handpicked for the supreme court. "Governor Futrell kept one pladgt, however. He said he 'would take care of his people.' He did take care of 'his people'—he put 14 members of his family on the state payroll. "The governor is asking you to endorse constitutional amendments and is proposing a school program which would limit the free public education guarantee to a six-mc.nths term , through the eighth grade. "My father promises you to do better than such a disgraceful thing. He promises to do it without resorting to a sales tax or an increase in the property tax. The legislature can find ways to get additional money. "Governor Futrell has let Arkansas pass up ! /2 million dollars' federal aid for schools and other things, that our neighboring states have gotten. Borrow tor Schools "My father will help the schools— but r.ot by a sales tax or an increase in the property tax. Arkansas might borrow from the R. F.
