That cycle began its long and steady descent in the fall of 1929' and continued down until April Jot 1933— three and a half years of decline, From then to September, .1933, there was a hiatus. There was a sudden, hectic rise in business and a more sudden collapse in July, and August That was an interlude of inflationary disease. In September, 1933, the real ascent began. But it .was 'very irregular and uncertain during 1934. In. the summer of 1934 it commenced to sink alarmingly. The whole gain was wiped out and more by fall.

The other third is returned, to the. counties from which the raw materials upon which the tax is levied are pioduced.

When.supplies are needed by an institution, a, requisition for transfer is made and the post of the supplies is transferred out of. the funds of that institution into the purchasing agent's revolving fund. The money thus derived is used to replace the merchandise consumed, "This plan has resulted in an enormous saving to the people of Arkansas and is generally regarded as one of the most intelligent pieces of legislation on our_ statute books," State Treasurer Earl Page said.
