JOHN S, GIBSON _Drug Company for taxation and for rate making will not necessarily be the .same." the governor wrote. "However, it does occur to me that the discrepancies that exist give caus for calling this to the attention of you commissioners." As an example, Governor Bailey cited the Arkansas Power and Light Company—largest utility company operating in the state—pointing out that books of the company on December 31, 1936, showed net book assets of about $4,000,000, although "the assssod valuation is only $13,551,000, or 21.17 per cent of the book value." "Files of the Utilities Department and the Corporation Commission re- veael that many public utility companies are paying taxes on a valuation which is less than 30 per cent of their book values. One company's assessed valuation is only 11.15 per cent of its book value," the governor said. "Public utility companies, like other taxpayers, are required by law to pay taxes' on 50 per cent of actual value," said Governor Bailey. "It is not my intention here to indicate an opinion that the Arkansas Power and Light Company's book values are excessive or that it is under-assessed. I recognize that there may be factors to be taken into consideration which will not justify fixing a tax valuation of a flat 50 per cent of the company's book value; but the Utilities Department and the Corporation Commission should have all the information relative to those factors. "When we find that one utility company with fixed assets of $15,905,385 on its books is paying taxes on an assessed valuation of 56,201,500, or 38 per cent, and that sveral smaller companies are paying taxes on from 40 per cent to 54 per cent of their book values, it seems fundamentally wrong tnat others should be assessed at 11 t<> 30 per cent of their book values."

ALEXANDER GEORGE AP Feature Service Writer Pumpkin pies have gone modern. The shiny tops prized by grandmother often are concealed now by a coating of whipped cream, fancy meringue, coconut or delicately-flavored sauce. Fillings, too, are more varied. While standpatters demand theirs plain— with a thick wedge of tangy cheese alongside—left-wing pie eaters prefer fillings containing friuts or nuts, for instance. Secrets of Success There are several secrets for the success of any pumpkin pie. The first lies in the crust. It must bo rich and well placed in the pan— to allow for a thick filling. A little grated chees may be added to give a pleasing flavor combination. The oven should be hot the first ten minutes the pie is in the oven. This will bake the crust so well that the filling will not soak in. The second secret is in the filling. Although it may be made in a number of ways it must be poured in a thick layer into the crust, and it must not be permitted to run over the edge. It should rise only to within a fourth of an inch of the top edge of the crust, since it will rise a little during baking. Brown sugar enriches the flavor of the filling. Adding a tablcspoonful of molasses to the regular ingredients will darken the color. A combination of spices is usually best. About one teaspoonful of cinnamon and half a teaspoonful of nutmbg, cloves and ginger is enough for each pie. Qulvery Filling Eggs are important. Two tablespoons- ful of flour may bb used in place <M one egg, however, if eggs are too expensive. The pie is done when the crust is brown and shrinks slightly from the pan. The filling should be slightly quivery, since it will stiffen as it cools. When the pie is removed from the oven it should be placed on a rack to cool. Doing so helps prevent a soggy crust. Variations: Add one-third of a cup of any of the following to each pie: chopped candied orange peel, preserved fruits, dates, raisins, figs, nuts, coconut or orange marmalade. Sprinkle grated cheese, dates, nuts, marshmallows or nuts over the top of the pie five minutes before you remove it from the oven. Ten minutes before you remove the pie from the oven criss-cross thin strips of unbaked pastry over the top. Serve the pie plain or topped with whipped cream, cream cheese, hard sauce, orange sherbet or crushed coconut macaroons. $5450 ASK YOUR DEALER ABOUT UNDERWOOD FEATURES!

War Not Mentioned NEW YORK-(/Pj—Viscount Cecil of Chelwood said Thursday night: "I don't think there's any great danger of an immediate world war." "The most effective step that could be taken today for the furtherance of world peace," he added, "is furtherance of the League of Nations. "I think young people should join League of Nations societies instead of signing pledges not to bear arms. Force exists. It is a fact, and you can't ignore it. We would work to control force by internationaj. agreement."

Skip Tracers No. 2 (Continued from Page One) so simple. They knew she had been a seamstress, they believed she still loved her husband, ami they thought she'd still have to work for a living. Sn they put one and two and three together. If she had to work for a living, she would be a seamstress, and if she loved her husband she would want to be as near him as possible so that she could steal glimpses of him. So they went from shop to shop in the neighborhood of his homo and, sure enough, up came a little lady who, after much questioning, sobbed out ah admission that she was Mrs. Larry Statam. ' Bridegroom Put to the Test Ehe had fled from him because her face had been horribly mutilated in the ship explosion. She didn't want him to see her scarred cheeks, she wanted him to remember her only as the gay little girl he had held in his arms the night they waltzed around the salon. "I still don't want to see him," she sobbed to the investigators. "Please don't tell him where I am. Let him love me as he remembers rnc—don't lot him sec mo now and hate me." But the investigators had a hunch . . . "We'll take pictures of you, ask him if he thinks you are his wife, and if he loves you as you are he'li come to you." Mr. Lawrence Stamm, sitting in the office? of the Skip Tracers, looked at the pictures, one by one. When he had finished he rose, pulled on his hat, and said: "Come on, Mr. Eiscnbcrg, lead mo to her—hurry. I want to finish that honeymoon with my bride." She was still his pretty little sweetheart of 20 years before. NEXT: "Who am 17" R. Weisenberger (Continued from Page One) eligibility would be protested. I urn confident that I, if chosen, would be eligible to serve, but, being totally dependent on my own means I would not be financially able to contest such a suit over an office that paid fifty dollars per month. Neither can I conscientiously ask my friends to support me under such circumstances. For that reason, I hiive asked that my name be omitted from the ballot. I deeply appreciate the loyal support of my friends and the apparent willingness of the citizenship of Hope in "give a young man u chance." I want to assure thuiu 1 have moved to Hope to stay and U> earn my livelihood here in the i-'raclicu of law, and that my intentions uf MI dciing have not been weakened by this unfortunate incident."
