PRICfi HIGHWAY . , — , ft ft Here and There -Editorial By ALEX. H. WA3HBURN" BOUGH TCI W HILE the Rev. Arden P. Blnylock, who was reprimanded editorially by his home town paper the Little Rock Gazette two weeks ago for exaggerating vice conditions in that city—while this Rev. Mr. Blaylock was making a prohibition speech at Hope city hall Tuesday afternoon your writer was continuing a fact investigation of the local liquor tra'ffic. I ssume every reasonable man knows that everything the Rev. .Mr. Blaylock says about the evil of liquor is true. That_was ft argument for total prohibition, so long as total prohibition -tmained a legitimate goal for legal experiment. But once it had been tried, discredited and repealed, everything that the Rev. Mr. Blaylock says about the evil of liquor is an unanswerable argument for adequate state control. I am directing these remarks, as always, to the people who believe liquor is still a public problem. What the professional "wets think, I don't care about. Tuesday morning I concluded n sur' fflvcy of Hopes six liquor stores and " ~ found that the amount of legal liquor being sold in Hope is averaging $6,803 per month. The proprietors pledged to me personally that their individual reports were correct, insofar as they could judge from the short time that the package-store law has been opcr- Hauptmann to Get Supreme Court's Answer by Dec. 9 Highest Tribunal Will De-| ports at the same time.

Their formal printed argument against a supreme court review must be filed by December 5, but it was indicated that this would be done much sooner. That would permit the nine justices of the supreme court to examine the New Jersey court records during the two-weeks recess starting next Monday. 30-HoufWeeiTls Pushed by Labor up. i stores and obtained their figures. I j found that the total of the last three was TWICE the total of the first three. ... I suspected something was wrong. XXX I went back to the first three. I said: "This isn't a poker game. This is a search for the actual figures that determine public policy. If there's anything on your conscience I'm giving you this opportunity to correct your figures before I add up the final total." Each man looked at the other one— and then the truth came out. They were afraid that if the business Jlooked. too attractive . the state and county''gbvernment-s would seriously consider adopting The Star's widely-known program of state and local dispensaries. I told those proprietors: "You know where this newspaper stands. The professional drys know wh6re it stands.

The one hope Union Leaders Mobilizing for Winter Battle on "Congress Front" WASHINGTON—(/P)—Labor leaders ore mobolizing their forces for the winter battle on the congressional "front," turning axious eyes at the same time toward the supreme court. Labor is preparing to renew the drive for a 30-hour work week and to protect legislative gains made »t. the last session of congress, particularly collective bargaining guarantees as provided by the Wagner-Conncry labor disputes act and (lie Guffey coal mining measure. The most significant step os far is « '\e American Federation of Labor's •oposal for an amendment to the constitution which would empower con- press to enact social welfare legislation to protect the workers as was provided by NRA. The federation has directed its executive council to present such an amendment to congress. The vigor with which union leader." press for constitutional change is expected, however, to hinge largely on forthcoming supreme court decisions bearing particularly on labor benefit for any kind of a workable enforcement program to control thc liquor traffic is an open set of figures and an honest study of them." The three proprietors took their respective slips, went back to their places of business—and gave me a revised report. Their new figures were double the old ones. They had come across in the name of truth. And the amount of legal liquor being sold in Hope is averaging 56,803 per month. ! xxx I That is $81,636 for Hempstead county's annual legal liquor bill. The last Department of Commerce report showed Hempstead county's annual retail stores sales to be 2Vi> million dollars. We havo conn; back a little from the bottom of the depression—but I'll take that figure. The legal liquor business, tncrefore, is diverting 3.3 per cent of the total retail store sales of Hempstead county- But N. W.

Ardcn P. Blaylock of Little Rock, sounded a ,call to arms for Hempstead county drys at a county-wide mass meeting attended by approximately 200 persons at Hope pity hall Tuesday afternoon, Following his speech an organization was formed for the furtherance of a local option election in the near future. An executive committee headed' by John P. Vesey of Hope as chairman, was appointed. Besides Mr. Vosey the committee is composed of: 0. A. Graves, N. P. O'Neal, W. A. Lewis and W. S. Atkins, all of Hope This committee will appoint a county-wide group to work in connection with the executive committee. As the meeting drew to a close Sheriff Jim Bearden took the floor and charged that "90 per cent of the bootleg liquor sold in Hempstead county is being sold by Hope -liquor .dealers after closing hours and on Sundays and holidays." He said that the bootleggers of moonshine had been "pretty well wiped out in this section —and that licensed liquor dealers are the ones that arc creating the most trouble at present." At the start of the meeting, the Rev. Wallace R. Rogers, pastor of Hope First Baptist church, took the floor and acted as chairman. He briefly outlined the purpose of the meeting. He said that as far as the pastors of Hempstead county- w<frc concerned "this meeting is only for a movement for decency." Bulletins LITTLE ROCK—(/P)-Arkansas Works Progress Administration (YVPA) announced Wednesday that almost 100 per cent of the more than 5,000 women In (he state who were classified as eligible for employment on May 31, 1935, have been put to work on projects In prrctlcf'lly every county in the state.

EllswoMh Of f oii Antarctic Flight Explorer Flying From Back Side of Antarctica to Byrd's Old Base NEW YORK - (/P) — Lincoln Ellsworth took off from Dundee island on his projected flight from Wedell sea to Ross sea at 3:50 a. m. Central Standard Time Wednesday, a dispatch to the New York Times and the North American Newspaper Alliance said. He then introduced the Rev. Mr. Blaylock, pastor of First Baptist church of Little Rock, who provided thc fireworks. Blaylock's Speech The Rev. Mr. Blaylock opened up with a barrage of criticism against the wet crowd, thc Arkansas legislature, thc national administration, and then rapped the local editor for his policy on thc liquor question, but at no time | called names. He did'not offer a substitute for i thc state's present liquor law, nor did j he suggest a control system. He advocated the abolition of all liquor.

OFF. circumstances diverts 20 per cent of the available trade dollars in an average community. 1 am assuming that the legal liquor stores of Hcir.pslcad county have taken over just about that amount of thc liquor traffic formerly handled by thc bootleggers and moonshiners. I am assuming that .since it was impossible to prohibit liquor, tin's reduction from 20 per cent lo 3.3 per cent was thc approximate record under bootlegging conditions and is the actual record of the package-liquor stores today. My assumption is borne out by reports I have obtained from the local wholesale grocer companies. One house told The Star that during the prohibition era (hoy believed 5 per cent of their sales of sugar, shorts and malt was diverted to moonshiners. Today their "suspected" sales arc less than half of one per cent, Thc same house told Thc Star that in prohibition days the demand for fruit jars wa.s just as great in the winter as it was during the summer canning deed! fruit jars this winter, this house tells us. Another wholesale grocer house in Hope told us that it estimated its "sufpeeted" sales of moonshine supplies to have dropped "99 per cent." There used to be a large demand for charred kegs. The Hope wholes-ale grocer* no longer slock them, so thc houses tell us. The wholesale grocers are compell- this afternoon. I want to be quoted that the first rebellion in America was thc whisky rebellion and that thc government would have been cvcrthrown by the whisky interests if the government had not been stronger. "I am not here to tell you how to vote nor what to do about a local referendum. The good people of Hope and Hempstead county have intelligence. You know how to vote. I am here to discuss thc liquor situation, point out thc evil of alcohol and its curse upon mankind. "Liquor has always played a big part in thc rise and fall of nations dating baek to ancient history. Alcohol has been thc contributing factor as a destroyer of empires. If we sell ourselves to the liquor interests you will see the day come when the foundation of this country will decline. Old Days Forgotten | "The younger generation should be ' informed.

Plan From 37 States Daughters of Confederacy Gather at Hot Springs HOT SPRINGS, Ark.-The Confederacy and its cause have been history more than 70 years, but they are unforgotten. The "Undying Remembrance" of thc official salute to the Confederate flag brought 00 of the South's own daughters together here Tuesday night for thc opening session of the forty-second annual convention of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. They did ol come to renew an old conflict, but to honor and perpetuate thc memory of those who have gone before and the belief for which they lived and died. Nor arc these daughters of the Old South scctionalists. They come from 37 states of thc Union and the District of Columbia, and thc Mason and Dixon line is a matter of no concern among them. Tuesday night the only past president general of the U. D. C. from a city north of that once existent line sat down to dinner in a resplendent company cf the organization's highest ranking officers.

Huge Hole Under Street Repaired Earth Washed Out by Leaking Sewer—WPA Is Making the Repair One of the many WPA projects under construction in Hempstead county is the repairing of a great hole under the pavement on South Shover street. The hole was caused by a leaking sanitary sewer, which had washed out a place about 12 feet deep, 18 feet long and about 10 feet wide. Only the pavement was left as a roof over the hole. The washed out section was first discovered by a crack in the pavement. Traffic was immediately suspended on that street when the giant cavity -was discovered. The WPA has repaired the leaking joint and is filling the hole. The paving will also be replaced by the WPA.

WASHINGTON — (IP)— Continuation' of the federal relief program through the next fiscal year was recommended by the United Slates Conference At Mayors here Wednesday. The mayors decided to "petition congress for an additional appropriation for the fiscal year 1936-37 sufficient to meet a planned and comprehensive program for relief work and to meet the unemployment situation throughout the country for such period." A Unified Tax System WASHINGTON — (/P) — President Roosevelt announced plans Tuesday for a conference during the winter to work out a "better system of taxation, state, municipal and federal," The announcement was made when the president addressed 50 members of the United States Conference of Mayors in his office at the White House. He was applauded when he assorted that the federal relief policy will continue to be one of "no starvation." , Mr. Roosevelt told the mayors "ta*es have grown up like Topsy in this country," adding: '•We are stepping on each other's toes, especially in the past five, 10 pr 15 years. In fact, virtually since the beginning of the World war the general tax situation in the United States has become not only more complicated but has called for revision.
