No, 28 Proposes Refunding of State Debt, Tying Up Revenue Proposes to Reduce Interest From 4 and 5% to 3 and 4 %— Terms of Amendment Are Hotly Debated (Fxlllof'.i Nole: Tills Is imotlicr In n scries of articles 011 Initiated nnd referred measures to be voted tijxm nt the ovcmbcr general election.) Amendment No. 28 LITFLE ROCK-f/C)—Arknnsns today owes npproxlmatcly $143,000,000 In highway bonds to the retirement of which it has pledged 75 per cent of its entire highway revenue. The remaining 25 per cent can be -®uscd only for rood maintenance. • I 1 j-| f , The lx>nds bcnr from 4,25 to 5 per IllflPP nPTIKfl^ TO ccnt interest. Annual debt service UUUgV AlV'lUOVO l/U takes n minimum of $8,537,000 and the balance* of Die 75 per cent of highway revenues over that amount must be used to buy up bonds tendered to the state in ndvimcc of maturity nt prices below par. " With its entire highway revenue pledged, the stale has no funds of its own to spend for new construction, despite the fact this revenue is now some $4,000,000 a year in excess of the minimum debt service guarantee. Refinancing Needed The restrictions if this debt plan- adopted by the legislature in 1934— < have been the cause of many heated arguments In recent yenrs. High state officials arc in general agreement that some sort of refinancing along more liberal lines is desirable. Principal objectives are a reduction of the Interest rates oil the bonds and a release of some state funds for road building. The method to be used in such a refinancing is n moot question. Every suggestion that has been made has been subjected to heated criticism. Proposed constitutional amendment No. 28 'is such n plan. Its critics are sec-king now to have the supreme court bar it from the November general election ballot on the ground that it is so worded the voters could not tell .from reading its ballot title all of the things it would or would not do. Chief argument of sponsors of the plan for its adoption is that it gives "constitutional assurances" to the state's bondholders that their Arkansas investments will be repaid. The proposed amendment would increase the highway debt by assuming obligations of bridge and road districts which were outstanding on January 1, 1938. To the annual principal and interest payments on this debt, it would pledge $8,985,000—an increase of $428,000 over the 1934 minimum guarantee. Would Cut Interest It woidd reduce the interest on the Ixmds to a range of from 3 to 1 per cent instead of 4.25 to 5. It would set the annual debt .service maximum payments at $10,985,000 leaving any surplus over that amount for use by the state in maintenance, road construction or other highway purposes. Opponents of the plan censure it for increasing the bonded debt by assuming new road district obligations—estimated to range upwards of §4,000,000, charging it would make the revenue commissioner an appointive constitutional officer and that it fails to make certain., provisions they argue should be made. The supreme court heard arguments pro and con on the controversial question last Monday and next week is expected to hand clown its decision. If the court rules the proposal off the ballot, work of drafting a new refunding plan probably will be started once more. If the court upholds the proposed amendment's ballot title, friends and foes of the measure apparently are prepared to carry their fight before the electorate in an intensive campaign. Refuses to Bar Nominee for Conviction Charge State Senator Under Fire for Liquor Conviction in 1936 TO SUPREME COURT Attack on Senator Wheatley in General Election Appealed UTTLE ROCK.-MT-Spccial Circuit Judge J. Mitchell Cock rill dismissed Saturday Dr. M. O. Evans' suit to bar State Senator Walter Y. Wheatley's name from the general election ballot as the Democratic nominee for the .senate in the 14th 'district, comixxsed of Garland nnd Saline counties. Announcing an appeal, Price Shoffner, attorney for Evans, indicated his belief that a supreme court decision mgiht be obtained before Nov. 8. Evans sought a writ of mandamus to compel Secretary of State C. G. Hall to omit Wheatley's name from the ballot on the contention thai he was ineligible to hold office. Evans alleged Unit Wheatley was convicted of a liquor law violation in 1916, and thai this came within the constitutional prohibition barring from office those convicted of "infamous crimes.' Judge CockriU sustained a demurrer filed by Assistant Attorney General Millnrd Alford in behalf of Hall, holding that he did not have jurisdiction in the- case. County Farm Unit to State Meeting Hempsteacl County Group to Attend Convention in Little Rock The Hempsteacl County Farm Bureau is making plans for a large delegation of Hempstcad county farmers to attend the Third Annual Convcn- tio nof the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation, which is to be held in Little Rock, November 17 and 18, according to It. H. Huskcy, county president. "The Arkansas Farm Bureau Fedoration will celebrate its third birthday during this convention," Mr. Hus- kcy stated. "It was just three years ago, November 18, that n handful of public-spirited men—not more than 50—gathered in a small assembly room in a Little Rock hotel to reorganize the Farm Bureau In Arkansas. "These men, most of whom were among the faithful 65 in Iho state who had retained their previous membership in the American Farm Bureau Federation, knew that the interests of the Arkansas farmer did not recognize state lines. They understood the mounting difficulties of fanners throughout the country, and had trav- elled in Little Rock that day determined that Arkansas farmers should have a united front nnd should speak in a voice that would be heard throughout (he stale and nation." Mr, Huskcy pointed out that from this .small beginning only three .years ago, the membership grew to 8,567 at the end of the first ytnr; to about 15,00 at the end of the second year, and to noarly 25,000 in 1938. "We hope If) see this figure rise to SO.OOO during 1939, and Hempstcad county Farm Bureau leaders are determined that this county .shall be • among the leaders in membership ami in putting into operation an effective program, not only for the state and nation, but for Hempstcad county farmers themselves. That's why we want as big a delegation a.s possible to attend the state convention."

If Hitlers Father Hadn't Changed Name History Student, Young Hitler Had Love for Oratory Born in Austria, He Caught Dream of a Greater Germany A SPY, HE DESERTS Army Sent Him to Spy on First Nazi Group, But He Was Converted Little known facts about the early life and career of Adolf Hitler are contained in this last of three intimate articles about "Tho Fsilnduos Fuehrer." By MILTON BRONNER European Manager of NBA Service "Heil Schicklgruber!" would bo almost too big a mouthful even for the most ardent Nazis. Yet "Heil Schicklgruber!" it might be in Germany today if Adolf Hitler's father, Alois Schicklgruber, had not changed his name to Hitler before Adolf was born. From a peasant of. mysterious parentage,, Alois .' Schicklgrubcr-Hitler worked up to become a petty Austrian official, married three times. Adoli was bom of the third wife on April 20, 1889, at Braunau, Austria. His father's overbearing "official" altitude early infected Adolf, left in him the subconscious feeling of being better tha nthe masses, not as good us the aristocrats. Because he wanted the boy to be an official, too, and Adolf wanted to be an. artist, Hitler later stated he went on a scholastic sit- down strike und had to be taken out of school. Actually, Hitler flunked hli studies in secondary school, had to repeat and was withdrawn later. Student of History One subject, alone interested Adolf —History. He early came across his father's only book, a Germanophile history of the Franco-Prussian war, then fell under the influence of a Germanophile history teacher. He absorbed the love of Germany and disgust with Austria-Hungary then fashionable among the middleclass Austrian.*!. From this sprang his later concept of the Greater Germany. School-chums regarded Adolf dubiously because of his penchant foi "preaching" to an audience or no audience at all, at the trees, if need be. Doubtless, this was the foundation ot his subsequent career as an orator. Out of school, Adolf turned shiftless idler, learned no trade, listened to his first Wagnerian opera. At 18 or 20, his mother and father both dead Hitler migrated to Vienna to study "art." The Art Academy turned down hia test drawings as below standart and twice rcfu.sed him admission. Hi determined thereupon to be an architect. Rejects Socialism Deluded Nazi followers like to bo- lievc—and Nazi bureaucrats and Hitler's book "Mein Karnpf" point out— that Adolf was a worker himself during his Vienna days. Actually, he worked infrequently although odd jobs were easy to get, avoided his fellows, was offended by their "coarseness" and "cultural misery," and because he instinctively disliked the workers he rejected their Socialist theories. He wound up in a Vianna flophouse, studied Gcnnonophile newspapers in- ttcad of art or architecture, kept Kim- self alive by copying and coloring pictures of Vienna's buildings, spent time in the Parliament sessions where he learned to hatep Parliamentarians, developed a taste for "politics," disputed endlessly with his fellow flophouse dwellers and urged the firmatiun of a new party among them. Jn 1913, he gratified his Germano- phile longings und went to Munich, where he worked as a draftsman. Here lie was happy, Then the war broke out. lie fell in liis knees and "wholeheartedly thunked Heaven," enlisted in the 16th Bavarian Infantry. He jcrved four years, rose to the rank of lance corporal, was wounded, gassed and awarded the Iron Cross, 1st class. Spy Is Converted One fateful day in 1920, still in the Army, ho was .sent to report the doings of it small crackpot group. "The German Workers' Party." Sent in as an informer, he remained to become a member in what was to evolve into 13-Man Group Is Secy.

The Hot Springs touchdown was the rtsult of two passes. Good for a little more than 50 yards, both well-hurled by Demby nnd caught by Godwin, they put the ball on Little Rock four. Many had left the park but when the Demby-Godwin combination started clicking, the crowd came to its feet and demanded a touchdown. Childs earned it over. The Little Rock line was unable to halt the onslaught. Penalties were applied with deadly effect on both teams in the first quarter. North Little Rock Tied FORT SMITH, Ark, —</O— North Little Rock scored on a long pass, Williams to Bell, with only a minute and a half to play to gain a 7-to-7 tie with the Fort Smith Grizzlies in an Arkansas High School conference game here Friday night.

Hitler and II Duce Bring Headaches to Map Makers CHICAGO.-l/Pj-Map makers complain of the 'Hitler headache." They revised their maps and globes when Italy conquered Eothiopia. They revised them again when Hitler annexed Austria. Now comes the proposed Sudetenland changes in Czechoslovakia and the map makers are jittery as to "whats next." Map makers of two Chicago coin- panics and a children's encyclopedia say all thc.se changes are heightening interest in geography and will help business in about two years or so. Meanwhile the cartographers are not sure where to draw their lines and customers hesitate to place new orders. Officials of one company said the European changes mean revising plates for more than 1.000 of their maps ami atlases. Archaeology Talks to Begin on Sunday Dr. John T.
