An Kx-Snlcsman Ilising from the platform of medicine man salesman in the sand hills of his native Winn parish, Long, red-headed country youth, took jump into polities as a champion ol "the common people" against the "big city ring" and won a membership on the Public Service Commission.

But no perfect plan of .securing an expression of the will of the majority in choosing public officials has ever been or likely ever will be devised. In the long run the simplest method i.s the best. Perhaps the old convention plan of making nominations wa.s even better than the primary election. It is hoped that the next legislature will relieve the people of Arkansas of this unnecessary burden and expense. AB American tradition and practice i.<;_, wiinst what the Conway editor -suggests. We live in one of the few truly self-governing nations of the earth. The uprightness of our government, its security and continuity, depends upon the play and counter-play of TWO forces. In the United States we call tho.se forces DEMOCRATIC and REPUBLICAN. In England they cnll them LABOR md CONSERVATIVE. In France they call them RADICAL and CONSERVATIVE. I would call your attention to the act that almost without exception wherever a nation has broken up wo old parties into groups and turncc )ver the responsibility of government in the one hand, and criticism of g»v- rnmcnt, on the other, to minorities— Itnost without exception that un- lappy nation has seen its liberties ivc away to a dictatorship. The double primary, to me, standb •i'or assurance that a)l issues shall be. resolved to TWO—for where there arc but TWO a majority must decide, anc where n majority must decide, a nation cannot go wrong for long. XXX I do not agree with the Conwny editor that the single primary is more "simple" than the double primary. I do not agree with the Conway editor that the convention system iy more "simple* "than lhe primary system. It is true that the MACHINERY of the convention system is more .simple than that of the double primary— bul il is the ISSUE that is important, not the machinery. Nothing else matters if the people understand the ISSUE. And the sole purpose of .self-gov. eminent i.s to make sure thai the people understand the ISSUE. When all races arc resolved to TWO Monroe Waives Senate Race to John L. Wilson Gives Hope Man 20 Consecutive Years Without a Defeat men then the ISSUE WILL OUT. You can hide the ISSUE behind PILKJNTON-HAKKIS Thompson Gets Clear Majority— Runoff for Other Representatives John L. Wilson became state senator from the 20th Arkansas district (Hcmpstcad and Nevada counties) Monday noon when Luke F. Monroe, second high man, waived his right to enter the runoff. Wilson announced he would be a candidate for president pro-torn of the next Arkansas senate. Emory A. Thompson cinched one of (he two Hcmpstciid county representative posts when he obtained seven more votes than a clear majority. The runoff for the other representative will lie between I. L. Pilkinton, second high man who fell 75 vole .short of a majority, and Willie Karri, third high man. The total vote fo representative was 7,367, a majorif being one fourth, or 1,842. Thornpsoi received 1,849; Pilkinton 1,767; Harri 1,400. In the senatorial race Wilson out stripped both his opponents, mic lacked only 199 votes of commanding a full majority. The vote for scnatoi in Hempstead and Nevada coimlie. combined was: Wilson 3,120; Monroe 2,H1; Timber hike 1,373. His four-year term as state senaloi •will give Wilson something of a record in Arkansas politics—20 years o consecutive public service without do. feat in a single election. He has served four years as clerk ot Hcmpslcad county; eight years as county judge; and is completing his lourth year as sheriff.

Arkansas was the only stale in the nation Sunday with temperatures over 100, according to Weather Bureau figures. It was 98 at ElPaso and Memphis and the maximum in most of the Southern cities was well below 90. The maximum at Kansas City which has reported some of the hottest weather this summer, was only 86 and it was 82 at Chicago, 78 at New York, 88 at St. Louis and 64 at San Francisco, consistently the coolest spot in the country.

S. Loan Office The Hope office of the Emergency crop and feed loan section of the farm credit administration has been authorized to make loans throughout this entire regional area for the purpose of planting winter grain crops, John Kent announced Monday. This applies specifically to winter grain planted in the fall of 1934 and to be harvested in 1935. Loans may be made in the maximum, amount of $250. In the event that Hempstead count yis later declared ''drouth stricken" lhe J250 loan may Jc increased to 5400. Farmers in this area have until September 15 to file applications for cans, Mr. Kent said. "I ask the co-operation of the cx- ension service and our county committees in .seeing that these loans arc nadc in the spirit intended. "It is not the purpose of this office o make loans on crops or on lands lot adapted, or where the general >racticc of growing such crops is not n conformity with practices approv- d by the extension service," Mr. Cent declared.

The body will be cremated in accordance with Mr. Rainey's express desire. Funeral services will be held at the Episcopal church and burial will bo at Carrollton. The speaker's unexpected passing brought expressions of deep sorrow irom political leaders in all parts of the nation. The leadership of the next house is in doubt as the result of Rainey's death, but Representative Joseph W Hyrns, of Tennessee, is prominently mentioned. Served 15 Terms Mr. Raincy became speaker of the House of Representatives after service in 14 congresses. He was a white-haired veteran of 72 when he was handed the'gavel at the start of his 15th term in March, 1933. He started his congressional service in 1903 and thereafter kept the Twentieth Illinois district in the Democratic column except in the Sixth-seventh congress, when he was a victim of the Harding Republican landslide of November, 1920. As speaker, he was faced at the outset with the exlraordinary scries of legislative acts which marked the opening months of the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration. The national bank holiday, return of beer, the amendment to abolish the 18th amendment, the granting of powers to the president to slash government expenditures, abandonment of the gold standard, currency inflation, farm relief, and a huge program of public works to relieve unemployment came in rapid tlUCAGO- (/P) -Shot In (he nead as he sat wH n his baby brother Jn a little wagon 2%-ycar- o d Robert P|« S( Jr., died In a hospital Monday.

September 17 was set as the opening day for the city's public schools. An application for federal funds will be filed immediately with the state commission of the FERA, and until the commission takes action on the applicalion, plans for the school year are uncertain. The faculty list will be announced as soon as a decision is given by federal authorities on the application for aid, the school board said. A big decrease in enrollment is anticipated if the high school must be operated on tuition, making it necessary to reduce the number of teachers employed. The elementary school will functi&n on as neraly a normal basis as possible. Paisley school will house pupils living west of the L. & A. tracks and south of Missouri Pacific tracks, north of the Missouri tracks but west of Hervey street, Oglcsby school will house all pupils living north of the Missouri Pacific (racks and cats of Hervey street. Brookwood will house pupils living east of L. & A., tracks and south oE the Missouri Pacific tracks. ' Pupils who will be 6- years of-a^c-™* on or before January 1 must register before the expiration of the first two weeks of school. Parents are urged to have their children vaccinated before school starts, if this has not already been done. d cii Fags Three.)
