PAGE SIX HOPE STAR, HQPE, ARKANSAS Safety Campaign to Be Continued Safe*Driving Crusade for Arkansas' Right Through 1938 It was announced Monday by Harvey Booth, traffic supervisor for the State Highway Commission, that the safety program of the State Highway Geparlment will be carried on with considerable vigor right on through the year 1938. On October 30,1 the State Highway Department announced a special Traffic Safety Campaign for the months of November and December in connection with a proclamation by Cover- Carl E, Bailey, in which he designated those months as "Traffic Safety Months." This campaign has served to arouse public opinion to the point where the State Highway Department, the State Police Department and other slate agencies are receiving enthusiastic support from local officers, civic clubs, school administrators and private citizens in all walks of life and, with the momentum of this support, State Police and Highway Department officials feel that the time is right for carrying forward a safety program of such magnitude as well got results in the reduction of the annual toll of traffic fatalities. Until this year, this toll has been steadily increasing in Arkansas. Reports on fatal accidents to December 1 indicated 32 less than for the same eleven months of 1936. Mr. Booth stated that while the report for December could not be completed for several days yet, it was probable that little or no further reduction will bt made on account of the unusually heavy toll of fatalities through the Christmas period. Until that time, Booth stated, the fatilities had been averaging about one per day during the month .of December, which was slightly less than the December, 1936, average, but, during the three or four days at Christmas, ten fatalities occurred on Arkansas highways to bring the total for the month close to that for 1936. Tw 0 or three deaths were reported last week and, if the toll for New Year's Eve followed the usual trend, there is little likelihood that much improvement was made in December, 1937, as compared to December, 1936. 'In addition to a reduction of 10 fatalities during the month of November, however, the campaign has served to enlist the cooperation of leading citizens all over the state and, with this cooperation, safety leaders believe that really worthwhile accomplishments will mark the ensuing year. The State Police plan to redouble their efforts and with the improvement of the mechanical condition of vehicles being operated over the highways of the state, as they are placed in.line for approval by Motor Vehicle Inspection Stations, Arkansas has an optomistic outlook for still further improving her traffic situation. 3 Locations For (Continued from Page One) Monday, January 3, 1938|> in -iiiii -II •-- '~ ' —•"•"""" II"I a c When Wedding Came to Bedridden Bridesmaid SE N.W 18-16-22, three quarters of a mile from the producer. The test which was begun on the Barnetfr lease cast of-Magnolia, in SW NE 14-17.-20 sometime ago was drilled to the depth of 6200 at which depth operations ceased. The Kcrr-Lynn Oil company of Oklahoma contracted to drill the 6200, with the most modern and up-to-date equipment. Work has started on the derrick. It is being made higher and is thought by oil operators here that drilling will be resumed at an early date, with plans to go deeper. Announcement has not been made, as to whom the contract has been given. The Kohn hotel on West Main street has been purchased by the Standard Oil company for headquarters of em- ployes of the company. A number of new business firms will open in Magnolia in January, also a new theater and a number of restaurants. Many new buildings are under construction in the residential section and rent prices are soaring. Orville W. Erringer State Manager Hamilton Trust Fund Sponsored by Hamilton Depositor Corp.

Shiver Plumbing-Eiectrical PHONE 259 WASHINGTON.—he proposed L.UU- lo warnendment to prevent Congress irprn declaring war without a permissive popular referendum is more than likely to be killed by the administration's recent mass attack upon it. Nevertheless, some 218 congressmen have signed a petition to bring it up for a vote against the wishes of both the White House and the conservative House leadership, and the fight is by no means over. January 10 is the date when Ludlow's resolution to initiate the referendum comes to the House floor, and it may be a good idea to show what the issue involved really is. Confusion arises from the President's assertion that a roterendcm on war is not consistent with "representative government," and the fact that the low amendment as now written is not as clear as it will be when amended. The issue involved is simply whether Congress fants to tie the hands of the President and Secretary of State when they play international politics, or whether the President shall continue to have the privilege of getting the nation into war without the specific consent of the people. It's No New Trick The Constitution says the power to declare war shall reside only with Congress, but every student and authority on the question knows—and most of them have pointed out—that a President can create a war situation and actually wage war without congressional consent. Fighting a war without declaring war is no new Japanese or Italian trick. Various Latin American republics learned about it from Uncle Sam long ago. A declaration of war by Congress without presidential approval is unthinkable. So is the idea of congressional refusal to dclcarc war when requested to do s oby a 1- resident who already has taken the nation's armed forces into war. As eommander-in- chief of the army and navy the President can order them about at will. Hence the war power actually resides with the President rather than with Congress. There is no reason t(, suppose that Roosevelt plans to lake the country into war. But there's every reason to suppose that he -seek.s to massage the public mind into a state where it would be receptive if he considered warlike gestures "necessary." Also, even persons who trust Roosevelt implicitly must concede the fact that, there will ho other presidents. Favor UiFollcttt- Amendment The Ludlow amendment simply would require a favorable referendum vote in advance of a congressional declaration of war, except in case of invasion. Ludlow promises to propose amendments. The present version takes no account of the presiden- > tial power to get us into undeclared ! wars. It would require a referendum ! even in face of a fascist revolution in i Mexico, financed and armed by lor- . cign powers—an obvious menace to j American security. Senator Robert M. LaFollotto's proposed referendum amendment is much more to the point, and if Congress adopts any such amendment it will wollow the lines of LaFollctte's or that of Senator Bennett Champ Clark, which is similar. LaKol(pile's proposal would forbid . ihu President lo "wage war" without ' a declaration hy Congress. Except in case of invasion or u military expedition asainst the United States or Us I possessions, or against any North ! American or Caribbean nation, the La- I Follette amendment would require a l referendum on the question of a dec- | laration 01 war. The referendum also j would decide whether Congress should 1 be authorised f> conscript men for ; military service overseas. Only a Ban: Chance j LaFollcuc's amendment is aimed at i "the almost unrestricted power of any ! executive to create a war situation i which Congress must accept." and '. the power >.{ Congress is one swift ac[I; lion to "sot up a military dictatorship. • send millions of nn-n to death in foreign I lands, open the slu.c.egates to bilh'ni.- ' of war loans lo other nations and bur- j den down the nation with more thctr.
