PRICE 6c CQJ BRITISH CAMEL PATROL I REPORTED BOMBED FROM Al Here and There Editorial By ALEX. H. WASHBURN POVBRNOR FUTRELL'S special committee on county vJ finances brings in a report—you may read it in detail elsewhere in today's Star—whose two chief recommendations are these: (1) Turn over to tho counties 15 per cent of the state sales tax; (2) authorize the counties to license and tax Slot machines. As regards slot-machines, Thc Star ^premises n warm time for any public i official who .sponsors this predatory ; gnmbling raid against the small-change 1 of children. Thc purpose of "moral ! legislation' 'is to throw around chil- I dron tlic same safeguards that they • find in the home—proceeding on thc I assumption, which is too true, that a great many children arc turned loose "on their own" at such a tender age that thc community must in n measure play god-father to thorn. There is this difference between big-time gambling and slot-machines that makes slot-machines all the more despicable: Real gambling is played by men and paid out of men's own earned money —but the slot-machines are sustained out of thc pennies and nickels of children, already charges upon the community, practicing a fixed-gambling system which will teach them perchance how to become a charge upon thc community all their lives. XXX But there is n certain merit in thc other proposal submitted by the governor's committee—thc proposal to split off 15 per cent of the state's sales tax revenue and turn it over to thc Steve Carrigan to Speak on Program in Honor of Yerger Mayor Graves, J.

City Primary Hope to Vote for 4 Aldermen, Clerk and City Attorney Candidates' Lists to Close October 26—Week From Saturday FEES ESTABLISHED Primary Advanced Two Months Because of State and County Races Hope's city primary election will be hold November 26. This announcement was made Thursday by the City Democratic Central Committee, Ed VnnSicklc, chairman; W. A. Lewis, secretary; and Tom Colcmnn and Arthur Taylor as the other two members. The committee's action steps up the approximate primary date by two months, which the committee "dcem- e'd advisable due to the fact that 1936 is the year for the county and stale primaries."

Lawson, executive secretary of the Arkansas Education association; tion of one mill in properly taxation for every one per cent of sales taxation. Thut proposal was a 3 per cent sales tax, with a 3-mill reduction in thc state's 8.7-miIlnge. Actually, however, thc politicians threw in so many exemptions of food and medical items and what-not that | when the Hall bill was finally enacted it established a 2 per cent sales tax i without making thc promised 2-mill property tax reduction. A great outcry arose from thc grocers and others who find the exemptions to be unworkable. The thing to do now is to remove thc troublesome exemptions, carry through the promised 2-mill property tax reduction—and at the same time thc bankrupt county governments might bo given H small amount of relief. XXX This is not the wisest course as regards local government. Thc wisest plan would be to gradually eliminate thc state's 8.7-mill I their city primaries in October or November preceding thc general election, thc committee deems it advis- abble to change thc time of thc primary election to an earlier date." In past years thc city primary has usually been held near the close of January. Qn November 26 thc city will nominate for one aldcrmanic post in each of thc four wards; for city attorney; and for city clerk. Candidates' filing foes were fixed by the committee as follows: City clerk $15; city attorney $15; alderman ?5. The deadline for filing of the party pledge by candidates is midnight October 26—a week from Saturday. Polling places will be the same as in past years: Ward One, Arkansas Bank & Trust Co. building.
