Street Tax Flarcup The street tax issue, storm petrel of many a city council meeting, flared up again Tuesday night when Alderman Anderson announced that because of what ho considered unsatisfactory enforcement he was serving notice on the other aldermen that he would shortly introduce an ordinance to repeal the tax, "1C we have n law on our books it is either going to be enforced or repealed," he said. "The record shows that the city in 1928 collected 52,259.02; in 1929 it collected $2,022.95; the amount in 1930 was $1,592.95; in 1931 it was $1,558.60; in 1932 nothing was collected; in 1933 there was collected for the last half of the year $695.75; in the same period of 1934 collections were $567; while up to tlecember 1 this year the total is only $405." Mr. Anderson's attack threw the council into turmoil, the majority of the aldermen apparently being determined to continue the enforcement effort. The finance committee chairman said, however, that he was "tired of being criticized as the only alderman who really demanded enforcement of the law," and he was therefore calling for a "showdown." Chief of Police John Ridgdill replied that in addition to the $405 collected in cash the police had caused 240 other individuals to work out their street tax. Chief Ridgdill said he believed the adjusted figure would show the equivalent of between ?800 and ?1,000 for the street tax for the half-year. City Attorney Atkins declared that the City of Hope always had collected street tax, asserted that the law could be enforced today, and pointed out that Municipal Judge W. K. Lemley had not hesitated to fine dissenters PISHES Will Make a Splendid GIFT FOR THE HOME 32-Piece SETS $2.95 , S3.95 IMPORTED CHINA $j;,95 32-Piece Sets *) DUFFIE HARDWARE CO. jfouth Elm Street Phone 431 when arraigned by th& city police, WPA lMn«» Studied Appearing before the council Tuesday night were Mack Duffie, captain of ihe loenl company of the Arkansas National Guard, and District Engineer Charles Thomas of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), on the pro*, posal to utilize the materials in the old Garland school building for erection of n ,ncw state armory and a new city fire department building. Extensive debate revealed that the City of Hope could not expect to obtain a clear title to the Garland building, which in involved in school financing plans, for at least another 90 days. The WPA proposal, however, is in the hands of a special committee of the council. Engineer Thomas tokl the aldermen that the state armory plans call for a total expenditure of $16,930, exclusive of the site, which the city would probably establish on n back corner of the Garland school lot. The federal government's contribution would be $11,000 leaving $5,930 balance. But counting the materials taken from the Garland building, only $2,280 cash would be required, and of this the Slate Military Dcpavlmcnt would furnish $700 leaving a net of only $1,580 cash to bo furnished by the City of Hope. Engineer Thomas reviewed local WPA activity for the aldermen. He said that the federal works program is building very good sidewalks for Hope householders for the material cost only, meaning an outlay of only $14 per 50 running feet, for the property owner. City streets in the outlying sections are being graveled, although it is proving rather costly work, because Ihe WPA has had to go clear to Blevins to obtain gravel that would meet federal specifications. Julin Chester hospital is being reroofed ns another WPA project—and the Hopc-Sardis road is being graveled, with funds to carry it out about a mile and a half. Four county roads yre being graveled, Mr. Thomas said, construction proceeding at a rate of about 2,000 feet per day. Funds for material and hauling are limited, howevoi-, by the labor allowance, he concluded. Firemen's Dinner Fire Chief J. K. Sale extended the city officials nn invitation to the Hope Fire Department's annual dinner, which will be held at 7:30 o'clock Friday night al the New Capital hotel. E. F. McFaddin appeared before the council as attorney for the North Side and South Main street paving improvement districts and obtained passage of the annual levying ordinances, which leave paving assessments the same as before. Alderman Henry pointed out to the council that there are some bad holes in the pavement at Second and Elm streets, and the matter was referred to the street committee. Undue noise by Missouri Pacific engineers while whistling for local crossings during the night caused the appearance before the council of Train- 7 Events at Fair Park Wednesday Mixed Program of Boxing and Wrestling Offer> ed Local Pans A mixed program of boxing nnd wrestling consisting of seven 'events, is offered Hope fans Wednesday night at Fair .park arena.

The council was considering an ordinance to prosecute "whistling engineers," but delayed action on Mr. Stanley's promise to take the matter up with the train crews. A petition signed by 143 citizens asking the council to entertain a proposal by William Reaves that he return to the police department on his agree- men to earn his own salary through collection of taxes, was referred to the police committee. Mrs. W. B. Carmical submitted to the council a letter asking payment of a debt alleged due her from Policeman Hugh Bearden. The letter was referred to -the police committee.

Italy Wins 3-Day '(Continued from page one) stem the advance of 3,000 infuriated Ethiopians'-who hurled themselves at the Blackshirt garrison at Mai Tim- chet. This town lies on the.river Tak- kaze, 40 miles southwest of Aksum, Ethiopia's Coptic Christian holy city now in Italian hands. Dembaguina pass is 10 miles due north of Mai Tim- rhet, between two of the great impassable gorges \vhich border the Takkaze on the north. Just above the pars in the Shire region, where a second enemy force," believed to be at least as large as the one which struck at Mai Timchet, was closing in on the Italians in an ever- nnrrcfwing arc which threatened the hard-driven Black Shirts with extinction. The Italians faced Ethiopian warriors overwhelmingly superior in numbers. Airplane and tank squadrons were being rushed to their rescue, it was said in a message from Marshal Badoglio, commander. The Italian garrison, composed chiefly of native troops, -did not retreat from Mai Timchet until after if. had put up a fierce but losing battle, Marshal Badoglio radioed. *Nayy Wife" New Film at Saenger 'Claire Trevor and Ralph Bellamy on Screen Thursday and.
