I^latiire be called to enact emergency measures for relief of counties. Six proposed bills sxibmitted to the governor by the committee for consideration of the legislature, if a session is called, would provide: , That 15 pe rcent of the two per cent sales tax be allotted to the general fund of counties, a third to be distributed equally among the 75 counties, a 1 third on the basis of area and a third oh the basis of population. The 15 jler ctnt would be taken from the portion of the sales tax now going to the common school fund and would leave ' that fund 50 per cent The 35 per , 6ertt going to the state general revenue fund for welfare purposes would not be disturbed. counties be given the right to license slot machines, under three clas- BASKETBALLS $1.50 TO S9.00 The Quality Is Right BRIANT'S Drug Store the annual license to be $30 for c<s!n machines that award ipriwa in merchandise; $tOO for coin machines that award prizes on the basis of skill in operating the machine, and $200 for coin machines that pay off in coins of tokens exchangeable for merchandise. That the fee of justices of the peace for holding preliminary examinations In felony cases where the defendant is discharged, committeed to jair or bound over to await action of the Grand Jury be limited to $1, exclusive of mileage. That the law fixing the fees of county clerks for making the tax books be amended to count five figures at one word instead of each figure a work. The fee would remain at 10 cents per 100 words. That the fees of county treasurers be based on the aggregate amount of the county general and road funds, the fee to be four per cent when the total cf those funds is less than $5,000 a year; two per cent when the total is between $5,000 and $10,000, and one per cent when the total is more than $10,000 a year. The only material change is to reduce the fee from two to one per cent on amounts over $10,000. That prosecuting attorneys be limited to a single fee for each defendant, regardless of the number of convictions obtained against the defendant at one term of court, and that fees of the prosecuting attorney be eliminated in cases tried before a justice of the ?ace. The report was signed by John C. Sheffield of Helena, former Phillips ounty judge; J. H. Lookadoo of Arkadelphia, former Clark county sheriff; J. E. Chambers of Danville, chan- :ellor of the Fourteenth district, and S. V. Wheeler, Marion lawyer. George Booth of Pocahontas, a former prosecuting attorney of the'Sixteenth Judicial Circuit, was a member of the committee but did not sign the report. Governor Futrell said he would like to have the reaction of members of the legislature, but suggested that individuals who ar interested either for or against the proposals write their senator or representative and not the governor. 0 Reclaim Her Child Unwed Mother Will Call Witness to Trace Baby to Mrs, Muench ST.

Last summer he traveled al lover the state spcaknig to and getting acquainted with friends and alumni. Mobs greeted him everywhere, even had bands in some cities, turning out In shirt sleeves and mopping their necks in the broiling July heat just to see and hear Jones.

No Intrusions One thing is certain, Biff will have no trouble keeping friends, fans, parents and fraternity brothers of his Oklahoma players out of the dressing room. Naturally, everybody remembers his classic expulsion of Huey Long. The Sooners will have the dressing room all to themselves this year. UKlahoma hasn't had a championship ieam since 1920, the year Benny Owes developed his undefeated ag- grcgition that swept to the Missouri VaUef conference title; But that was trol the senate, can't possibly bo dislodged before 1941, and many believe it will be 1943 before their grip cnn be shaken loose. This means, unless the Democrats in the senate arc split hopelessly, that they would have at laast a veto power over legislation and can control the confirmaltoix of nominations and ratification of treaties—two highly important prerogatives of that body. Political Arithmetic j In 1936, nineteen seats noW* held by Democrats and 13 by Republicans will be contested. Of the 19 Democratic seats at stake, however, 12 are from the' south or border states with the chances now against the Republicans gaining any of them. Political statisticians figure nothing short of a landslide in their favor cun justify Republican hopes of picking up more than three or four seats in '36 now held by Democrats. On the other hand, Democrats hope to cnpture some of the 13 scats now held by the Republicans. Only Norris of Nebraska Ls certain of not having a finht on his hands.

Harry Witt, a sturdy 190-pound fullback, a defensive genius as a linebacker and a blockcr dc luxe, assumed his 1934 duties again. Rounding out the backfield is Buck Friedman, a smashing 190-pound halfback, a potential star of the gaudiest hue. • Rice's line play is being featured by the feats of Ralph (Primo) Miller, giant All-America tackle nominee of 1934. Cap. Sam Mays and Bob Biering, a massive youngster full of fight and ambition, are available for the ether tackle- berth. The guard positions are looked after by Melbcrt Bale, a forward who shines as brilliantly as his red hair, and Carmen Brandon, as good a duo as the Conference boasts. Rice has crack ends in Johnny Sylvester, Bobby Forbes, and Byron Williams. If there si a position offering Kitts any kind of a problem it is center, and he has three excellent hands there. Howard Nicholls is the first string man because of time spent under fire, but he weighs only 165 pounds. Elmer Wallace, younger brother of the celebrated Bill, and Herb May, a sophomore with a splendid reputation, are the other two pivot men.

King Fuad, whoso health is still con- Mdered precarious, spent the day m isolation in his new palace here studying British-Egyptian proposals and counter-proposals designed to secure a greater degree of Egyptian independence in return for military co-operation with Great Britain. The cabinet, which moved to Cairo for the week-end, carried on consultations regarding its position In the question of application oC sanctions against Italy. Many sections of the Egyptian press predicted the downfall of Premier Tcwfik Ncssim Pasha as the little premier held a separate consultation with his minister of war before meeting all the cabinet. Ultimatum to Egypt British circles here say the British have virtually served the Egyptians an ultimatum that they can, in effect, have a military alliance with Britain with increased military strength but that there can be no publicly announced treaty for the time being. The Alexandria newspaper La Bourse, owned by Oswald Finncy, a big cotton merchant, summed up the situation as follows: "Article 45 of the Egyptian constitution lays down that Egypt alone has the right to declare a state of siege. But it is on Britain that rests the responsibility to defend the country against any power. In the same way. under Article 46. only the king has a right to declare war, make peace or conclude treaties. But it is the British | Admiralty and War Office who organ- jizc and command the military defense of the country." .
