The Bobcats arc undefeated in this part of the state, while the Leopards hnvc nothing worse than a tie with Nashville to mar their record. Both teams arc recognized as outstanding, not only in District 10, but In the state, and the largest attendance in local football history is anticipated. The Bcbcats wiU come here as paper favorites, but mast De Queen fans are confident the Leopards will be the victors. They point to the fact that the Leopards will be playing in the daylight, at home, and In the , presence of a homecoming crowd, an advantage that sometimes produces inspired football. Both Heavy Teams Both teams al't physical condition, and it is assured tho coaches will throv/ their full strength into the (Friday fracas, in which so much is at stake. Both arc heavy teams, being about evenly matched in weight, so that the issue probably will be decided by speed nnd science. The Bobcats have Cnrgilc, a backfield ace whoKc ball-carrying prowess has attracted state-wide attention, and Mr. Cargile, it is said, has 10 husky mates who know well how to lend cooperation necessary to achieve yardage.

The decision, as you recall, didn't stick. ) You can take Federal District Judge William C. Colcman's decision in Baltimore against the holding company net ns seriously ns the public utility corporations would like you to take it. Or you may, ns attorneys for the government privately would suggest, merely yawn. But in any event, the more you looked into the inside workings of the so-called legal or judicial process, the more disillusioned you'd get. You might guess why New Dealers say they can nearly always guess how any district judge will decide n case and why they, as well ns corporation lawyers seeking to prove laws unconstitutional, try to bring their test cases before certain judges. Federal judges nre usually cx-poli- ticlai.'i picked by politicians for political reasons. The district bench now happens to be loaded with Republicans because so many jobs became vacant during Republican administralions. But you needn't think Roosevelt has done any better by the judiciary. His district judge selections almost invariably have been made on recommendation of senior senators from the states involved, with aprpoval of Attorney General Homer S. Cuminings, who gets much advice from that prince of lobbyists and good fellows, ex-National Committocman J. Bruce Krc- mcr. Both Guessed Right It's no reflection on Judge Colcman to point out that he was an unsuccessful Republican office-seeker nnd had come, tp be known as anti-New Deal. 6r-to point out that the "power trust" and its lawyer, John W.

Their next test will be before District Judge Niclds at Wilmington, former G. O. P. officeholder who ruled against the government in the Wcirton case. Utilities, testing the TVA, carefully chose to file suit in Birmingham before the late Justice Grubb, a Republican appointee. They won.

It might cause some to think, and thereby bring action. , ,\. Friday the City of Hope .is going to do one of its most stupid 'of.'iilr -its long list of stupid acts—that; of 'attempting to enforce, by arresting: men and bringing them to the city^court, the out-grown street tax law.•_•'.'.V When that law was made there'were no paved streets and there wasn't much mpneyito hire a regular street crew to work the roads and streets, as we have today. So every able-bodied man between*the ages of 18 and 45 years was expected to work five days twice a year.

A Revenue Measure , \ I said the council was ncar-'Sightcd. They are worse than that. They are dumb in giving orders to the police to enforce the law when there are so many people against it It is being done' for no other purpose than to bring more dollars into the city treasury. Everyone knows that Hope is one of the few towns that has stayed out of debt these past few years. It not only stayed out of debt but it has a surplus in the treasury, thanks to the city-owned light and water plant. So the city docs not need that street tax money. I say that if everyone worked the streets or roads instead of paying ?5 n year, that out-grown law would be repealed the next time the council met. It is only that it is a rich "mine" for getting more money that the pressure is being brought to bear by the present council. The council wante to buy the Elks homo and also buy the airfield—that i.s the only reason for this sudden burst of moral law-enforcement. Hope is about the same age a town as 'Is neighboring city of Texarkana, yet look what a difference in size, population and civic pride, Texarkana has Hope beat a mile. Why? Because Texarkana has had leaders who weren't afraid to step out to do and dare. They have not been afraid of the morals of their people being ruined. Texarkana has been a rough town, of course, but they always welcomed shows-, dance halls, carnivals, industry and airports. , Things Hkc that arc necessary to Delegation at Topeka Challenges Justice of Governor develop a town.

Then we should revive the Watermelon festival, and go after industry and offer it some inducement. Hope has been indifferent to industry.

We put men in thc council and mayor's office to use their heads not for just a few well-to-do's but for the betterment of all the people. The reason I personally want everyone to call on the council to repeal thc street tax law is this: The biggest majority of the men in Hope arc working men.
