Patriotic citizens should begin a roundup of taxpayers who have gone delinquent not because they hadn't the resources with which to pay, but because going delinquent is more or less the order of the day. In the economic stress of one and two years ago we got to looking upon taxes as an open-account bill—something we ought to pay on schedule hut which possibly could bo put off.

Others "think that cotton markets bought at ' the price of farm poverty arc too cx- pcn.sivc. Study of the foreign collon situation by the Agricultural Adjustment Administration leads to the conclusion by experts of the Cotton Section thnt large foreign expansion of cotton growing is unlikely in the near future. There are physical, social, nnd • economic factors which will largely limit foreign cotton production for n * long time to come. Moderate foreign increases are lo be expected, but serious replacement of American cotton by foreign-grown cotton is unlikely unless American prices go to unusually high levels nnd remain there for a HlonB-period of years, U is.vbelicved.

XXX III theory, the accrual of taxes is like the accrual of preferred dividends in a stock company. If this year is lean, then the missed dividend and the new dividend will be paid together next year. But in practice this isn't quite true. Hcmpstead county's assessed valuation has fallen off one-third since 1929. We have therefore only two- thirds as much valuation against which to levy taxes. And on that two-thirds valuation i tax delinquency continues to be out of | proportion to the-improvement in business conditions in our state. It is easy, going into a panic, to convince one's self • that tax default Is" inevitable. But it is hard, coming out . of a panic, to recognize- the unalterable fact that tax-paying must bo resumed.

If more cotton is produced, it means less food and feed. Even fi high cotton prices encourage larger cptton production, transportation systems in India arc so poor it is hard to move food into the farming country to feed the population.

It grinds us particularly hard m the field of local government. Half the counties this fall arc initiating local salary bills to reduce by a certain percentage the salary expense of local government. That will help some—but it will take a tax- collecting roundup to complete the picture. The county salary acts won t reduce taxes—the taxpayers have already attended to that by chopping off ii third of their asscsinents.

After being outplayed in the opening quarter, the Trojans came back t< score two touchdowns in the scconi quarter, one in the third and tw< more hi the final period.

Mrs. Walters jerked the baby from the other woman's arms. An argument inside the train followed, with threats by Walters to "knock out" his wife. With her son held closely in her arms, Mrs. Walters made her way to the pullman car, the husband following. Another argument ensued, Walters striking her. A scream rang- out. Frightened passengers arose and hurried to the pah-, separating them. Walters Arrested In the meantime witnesses to the struggle at the Hope station had 'telephoned officers at Prescott where the train was flagged, Sheriff Pittman going aboard to take Walters into custody. Walters, who is connected with a Los Angeles advertising firm, came to Hope Thursday. He made two visits that day to the home of his wife who consented that she would let him see the son provided that he "wouldn't give me any trouble," Mrs. Walters said. Friday morning Walters made anr other visit to sec his sou. He asked that he be permitted to take the child and have its picture made. Mrs. Waltera refused, but suggested that she accompany the child Friday afternoon to a local studio. Plans were made, but Friday afternoon Walters telephoned and said Emergency 'Relief Administration. (that he had been called to Texarkana. He returned to Hope early that night and came to the home of Mrs. Walters For the next six weeks these state and federal agencies will attempt to get an accurate check on all babies bom in Arkansas in the last twelve months. Cards from the Bureau of the Census will be sent to every family in Arkansas on October 12, ask- iiii, if there has been a child born in- that family in the last 12 months, to nd if to fill out the card. These cards will be returned, postage free, to the Bureau of the Census, which will in turn, forward them to the State Bureau of Vital Statistics, where they will be checked against existing _state records. lor another visit to see the child.
