A holding company is a company which buys control of operating companies through purchase of their common stock. The holding company may or may not have actual operating facilities. Operating companies are variously controlled by state utility commissions. Defenders of holding companies argue that they also are thus indirectly but sufficiently controlled. Other experts contend that in general Financing operations there seldom is such state control., principally he- cause an individual state lacks jurisdiction.

Fewer Students to Attend Schools First. Time, in, Five Years . That Enrollment Shows Drop LITTLE'ROCK—(yp)- r For the firs time in five years fewer children wil attend dosses in Arkansas public schools this fall on the basis of the 1934 school enumeration which wnf completed Wednesday. H. T. Steele, assistant commissioner o feducation, announced that the census showed G47,G7B persons of school age; between six and 21 years, in the 75 counties. Forty^eight counties reported tosses and 27 showed an increase. It was the first time the school census showed a decrease since 3929. Steele attributed a part of tho decrease to the close check made on census figures contributed by each county. Steele said he checked the birthdays of persons named in questionable census reports and found many discrepancies. The birthday was given as March 8, 1934, which would have made the child listed seven days old on the day the county census was made, Steele said. Another birthday showed "a child" to be a grandfather of 72 years ago, said Steele. His birthday was listed as March 16, 1861. The completed census will be used as the basis for a quarterly distribu- ion of the state per capita school imds, which will be allocated at a neeting of the board of education lere September 17. 'Approximately !600,000 will be in the funds at that ime, according to estimates, making for a distribution of'less than $1 per apila. 5-Year Recoi^Brofeen for Chevrolet Sales DETROIT —f/p)— The largest, August production in five year.-;, totalling 74,437 units for a)v)11arlts, is reporter by the Chevrolet, Motor Company.
