State's Revenue on Millage Tax Proof of Upward Trend in Arkansas Business Declares Page ID£BT-FR¥E IN 1936 IGeneral Revenue Fund Will Wipe Out Last of Huge Overdraft By O. P. WANES Associated Pi-ess Staff Writer LITTLE ROCKK.— (/I 3 ) —Arkansas revenue during the calendar year 1935 Showed a decided upward trend de- 'ficrlbed by State Treasurer Earl Page as "very gratifying." Page said that some of the funds in the treasury ha dsuffered declines, "duo to • many obvious . causes, but many others have shown very wealthy increases." The hike in mlllago tax revenue during tile year was cited by Pnge as "conclusive proof" that conditions throughout Arkansas are improving. In that connection, he said: "Tlie best evidence we have on our records of improved conditions is the substantial increase In ; revenue derived from the millage taxes. With months of .the calendar year xounted for and the month of >cr 'estimated; it- is" anticipated that the mtllage taxes will show an increase of between $175,000 and $200,000 over 19X4," Old general revenue obligations nut- standing were decreased greatly. Act 5 'of, 1933 set up a general revenue sinking fund for the purpose of retiring warrants which had been issued against the general revenue fund, Which was depleted. The act provided, that 20 per cent of every dollar coming into the general revenue fund should.bo set aside in the sinking fund. During 1935 the It will be aimed nt the automobile industry. t An announcement by Lewis will show that his group has chosen automobile plants—whose leaders arc grimly anti-union—a.s the first field for its attempt to organize workers in mass production industries on an industrial basis. Thus far the Lewis organization, which is in sharp conflict with President William Green and the old-line crafts union leaders of the A. F. of L., has only talked and sought to stir up sentiment workers. for its program among Ice on Approaches to Fulton Bridge Paralyzes Traffic 75 Cars and Trucks Held at Bridge Midnight to 7 in Morning ROLLING~SATURD A Y But a forecast of definite action will come prior to the convention here of the United Mine Workers, of which Lewis is president, on January 15. Coiighlln Girds for Fray Father Coughlin has told certain of his friends here that he now has 50.000 organizers for his Social Justice Union as result of his appeal for them by radio. Coughlin found in the last session of Congress, apparently to his sur- priso-^and certainly to the amazement of his lobbyists here—that his radio speeches had not given him control of Congress for his program. But he is going to fix that now, ho insists,' by organization of Social Justice clubs in every congressional district. The. radio priest' has sent books of instructions and application blanks to his organizers. The limit -to any one club is 250 members and the aim, you sec, is for two or three hundred Coughlin clubs in every congressional district. Heads of the clubs will form district council and each district council will elect a delegate or delegates to a nationnl Social Justice convention. There will be net national Social. Justice ticket. Father Coughlin is on record as saying that he will be for Roosevelt urilesk •Republican.-? nominate a "better man." Those who know him best insist that he would try to swing his followers to Borah if Borah were nominated, but that he isn't interested in other current G. O. P. possibilities. Tlie Father Coughlin program in the next Congress will be concentrated on his proposal for a government central bank, which would take over control of the issuance of money and credit. New War on Lynching Friends of the Costigan-Wagner sinking fund was credited with an ! anti-lynching bill, which was shevled amount sufficient to retire $323,145.46 last session as the result of a six-day in old warrants. Out of Delit in 193G "At the rate the fund has been acquiring revenue, the last of those old obligations .should be retired before midsummer of 1936," Treasurer Page predicted. Keeping the records of the treasury is a tremendous task. There are approximately 110 separate . funds of which an accurate account must b<t kept. Five of these are federal aid funds. They are: The Smith-Hughes fund, the Vocational Rehabilitation fund,, the Georgc-Ellzey fund, Mor- rell-NeUion fund, and the Bankhead- Jone.v fund. The George-Elbcy fund is devoted to school aid and the Mprrcll-Nelsnn fund is divided between the University of Arkansas and the Negro A. & M,'college at Pine Bluff, eight-elevenths going to the University. Tlie nkhead-Jones fund i.s divided in the lame manner, 520,000 having been received from it in 1935.

Pointing out that enemies of Uie bill insisted that states themselves would prevent lynchings', they will -demand an investigation by the Senate Judiciary Committee of the M'authentic lynchings and the five reported lynching which have occurred since last May. They believe that the evidence will be so horrifying, that public opinion will demand passage of the law and that the southern senators will be overridden. Stress will be laid on the fact that lynchings frequently involve neither negroes nor crimes against women. Tlie investigation, if ordered, will take up the torture of three white labor leaders—allegedly by a group which ; included city policemen—in Tampn, i Fla., from which one man died after I he had been mutilated and hot tar ap- I plied to his wounds. President Green of the American Federation of Labor has atraeted na- i tionul attention to the case by threat- I enilig to cancel the federation's eon- 1 vention in Tampa if the crime isn't , punished. The A. F. of L. is expected ; to support the investigation demand. ; Orief for Joe Kohinson | Senator Joe Robinson of Arkansas, ; administration leader in the Senate, is reported to be having renom.ina.tiot) troubles down in his home slate. His | friend.s are hoping that enough candi- ' dates will declare against him to split , the anti-Robinson vote and assure Joe's re-election. | After hearing of the assassination of Senator Huey Long—who had threatened to invade Arkansas and encompass his defeat—Robinson took off with the big congressional party which sailed for the Philippines and Japan. His political enemies are n;.- ing that trip against, him, pointing out that Senator Pat Harrison, who once was also worried about Lung—and is always shrewd—etaycd home in Mississippi to resume acquaintance with the folks. Huey's enmity did Robinson no good in Arkansas and may still prove effective. Aside from charges that Joe i.s too close to the "power trust," his opponents are .spreading reports that the senator has become swell-headed and doesn't mix with the boys at home any more.

Highway Department Crews Thaw Ice With Salt, Restoring Traffic Traffic over the Fulton toll bridge, Broadway of America route, was suspended shortly after midnight Friday because of the ice-covf>red approaches of the bridge which made driving extremely hazardous. Approximately 75 tourists, truck drivers and commercial travelers, were held up for six hours, traffic being restored at 7 a. m. Saturday. Those delayed spent the night huddled around stoves at the toll bridge to keep warm. Others spent the night in their cars, keeping their motors running ot prevent freezing. An emergency crew of district three Arkansas Highway department was called out early Saturday. Salt was sprinkled on the bridge approaches and traffic started moving at 7 a. m. Bndgekeepcr L. E. Quinn told The Star Saturday morning that no accidents had occurred in that area. Traffic was hampered as early as Friday afternoon when a light rain began falling, rapidly changing into sleet as the afternoon advanced. Tlie sleet and rain stuck to automobiles, covering Uie windshield and body of the car with sheets of ice. The Fruit and Truck Branch Experiment station reported a low Friday night of 26% degrees as compared to the minimum of Thursday night o£ '/4.degrees. ,. : . , , Sidewalks and streets of 'Hope were covered with sheets of ice Saturday morning, presenting precarious footholds.

Flynn, in two previous articles, has re- •ineiued business of the depression years and 1935. Todafr, in the last article of his scries written ex- chisively for NEA Service, this noted economist ventures a forecast for 1936. By JOHN T. FLYNN Copyright, 1935, NEA Service, Inc. The road ahead for business, as 1936 i begins its journey, is really less con| fused than at any tune in these last five years. • Will the business lift continue? There seems hardly a doubt of that. War or.--soriie -^unWre- seen disaster may alter the course of events. But this is not likely. There is hardly a doubt that production in all the consumers' goods industries will improve, that employment will increase, that prices will rise, that the FLYNN security markets will reflect the general expansion and make desperate efforts to stage a revival in speculation. Will business revive sufficiently to enable the government to retire from the function of priming the pump? To answer this in the affirmative it would be necessary to predict a revival of the capital goods industries. If the lift in business continues, some rise in the capital goods industry is inevitable. But there are no signs now that this rise will be sufficient to enable the government to put an i end to its pump priming. I 1921 Collapse Differed What energies are apparent in business to justify a hope of capital goods revival? Unlike some other depressions this one has brought into being no new device or invention or development which seems likely to affect deeply tlie course of future industry. In the depression of 1921-23, the construction industry never did collapse. In the midst of the depression building of movie theaters, hotels, apartment houses ami commercial ! buildings was on a large scale. Then as the automobile industry rose, with the amazing changes it wrought In our way of life—new suburbs, new garages, new roads, new towns—there was an immense capital goods revival supplemented by a further develop- By tlie Associated latest of a succession of bold.fo- rays by Ethiopian troops against Italy's Invading Biackshirts, described in communiques from Addis Ababa, gave a fresh complexion Saturday to Premier Mussolini's "campaign of occupation in Ethiopia, Practically stationary for weeks, the Italian forces on the northern front .were forced to relinquish Abb) Addi, 25 nilles west of the main northern .lines, In an Ethiopian surprise attack.

Thu co(ton textile industry went through 12 months which, when translated into a chart line, resembled a sagging clothes line. Measured by Tho Associated Press index of activity, adjusted fur seasonal trend, the cotton industry was operating better than l(H) per cent of the 1929-30 average as the year opened. I3y mid-year the bottom had been reached, 76.9 per cent of tin: 1929-30 average, but as thn year closed the index again had crossed the 10(1 pel- cent mark. As for the entire textile industry- cotton, wool, rayon, silk-tin- textile e-oaomic.s bureau predicted: "We expect Ihe textile index to hold it.s present, high level for the next few months, but. any appreciable increase from (be present levels would not seem to be in prospect," One reason for thai interpretation is the curious two-year cycle through which the industry appears to travel. Odd years usually are high and even years low for pioduction. Next year is even. Silk prices made the must forceful rise starting ab;>ut mid-year, and wool recovered about the time for its upswing. Kayon prices continued the long-time downward movement by eashiy from 'high* early in the year. But wo see no far-reaching development yet. Some things have happened.
