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 (Editor's Note: This Is nnothcr In n scries of articles on initiated and referred measures (o be voted upon nt the ovcmbcr general election.) Amendment No, 28 LITTLE ROCK—(/P)—Arkansas today owes approximately $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 cari be -Oused only for road maintenance. The bonds bear from 4.25 to 5 per cent interest. Annual debt service takes a minimum of $8,537,000 and the balance of the 75 per cent of highway revenues over that amount must be Judge 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 LITTLE ROCK.—(/P)—Special Circuit Judge J. Mitchell Cockrill 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, composed of Garland and Saline counties. Announcing an appeal, Price Shoff- ncr, 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. Hal to omit Wheatley's name from the ballot on the contention that he was ineligible to hold office. Evans allegeci thjH Wheatley was convicted o£ a liquot • law violation in 1916, and that this came within the constitutional prohibition barring from office those convicted of "infamous crimes.' Judge Cockrill sustained a demurrer filed by Assistant Attorney General Millarcl AUord in behalf of Hall, holding that he did not have jurisdiction in the case. County Farm Unit to State Meeting Hempstead County Group to Attend Convention in Little Rock The Hempstead County Farm Bureau is making plans for a large delegation of Hempstead county fanners to attend the Third.Annual Conven- tio nof the Axkar&as- Farm -Bureau Federation, which is to be held in Little Rock, November 17 and 18, according to H, H. Huskey, county president. "The Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation will celebrate its third birthday during this convention," Mr, Huskey stated. "It was just three years ago, November 18, that a 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 the state who had retained their previous rnomber- ship 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 clay determined that Arkansas farmers should have a united front and should speak in a voice that would be heard throughout the state mid nation." Mr. Huskey pointed out that from this small beginning only three years ago, the membership grow to 8,567 at the end of the first ytar; to about 15,00 at the end of the second year, and to nearly 25,000 in 1938. "We hope to see this figure rise to 50,000 during 1939, and Hempstead county Farm Bureau leaders are determined that this county shall be . among the leaders in membership and in putting into operation an effective program, not only for the state and nation, but for Hempstead county farmers themselves. That's why we want as big a delegation as possible to attend the state convention." used to buy up bonds tendered to the state in advance o£ maturity at prices below par. " With. its entire highway revenue pledged, the state 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-n have been the cause of many heated arguments In recent years. High state officials are in general agreement that some sort of refinancing along more liberal lines is desirable. Principal objectives are a reduction of the Interest rates on the bonds and a release of some slate funds for road building. The method to be used in such a refinancing is a moot question. Every suggestion that has been made has been subjected to heated criticism Proposed constitutional amendment No. 28 is such a plan. Its critics are seeking now to have the supreme court bar it from the November general election ballot on the ground thai it is so worded the voters could not tell from reading its ballot title all of the tilings it would or would not do. Chief argument of sponsors of the plan for its adoption is that it gives "constitutional assurances" to,, the Stale'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 January 1, 1938. To the annual principal and interest payments on thU. debt, it would pledge $8,985,000—an in- ] crease of 5428,000 over the 1934 minimum guarantee. Would Cut Interest It would reduce the interest on the bonds to .a range of from 3 to 4 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 now 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 WEATHER.

Best "What Would You Do" solution—(a). By LEONARD ELLIS The Jonesboro High School football team unloosed a powrcful offense of razzle-dazzle, reverse and spinner plays here Friday night to sweep the Bobcats off their feet and score a surprising 33 to 12 victory that knocked Hope :rom the ranks of the undefeated conference teams. The Hurricane team, led by two ;iard-runnings backs, Tilley and Pharis, swept down the field to score 1< points in the opening quarter, addec 13 more in the second period to leac at the half, 27 to 6 The visitors fitfh touchdown came in the lost period, Hope holding Jonesboro scoreless in the third quarter. The Bobcat's two touchdowns came in the second and third periods, the first resulting from a recovered fumble on the. Jonesboro 1-yard line. Thee Ime plays failed, but on fourth down Eason, Hope fullback, drove across, Hope's second touchdown in the third period resulted from, a 35-yard march/ after Bobby Ellen "stoe ;the ball"' from,:.the arms of a Jonesbc-ro' entage^'J player in making a tackle. A 15-yard penalty advanced the ball to the 20 where Coleman, Eason and Parsons advanced to the three. Eason moved it up to the one-foot line and Parsons plunged across. Scoring touchdowns for Jonesboro were: Pharis, J. Osmet, Tilley, Barringer and Durham. The first downs were: Jonesboro 15 and Hope seven. Three of Joncsboro's touchdowns resulted from passes, although Pliaris and Tillcy ripped the Hope line almost at will in the first half. The Bobcats, however, were hampered a great deal y injured players who were unable o operate at top form, The First Quarter Jonesboro received, returned to the 0 and then kicked to Eason who was rought down on his own 35. Parons made four yards and after no gain on two other attempts, Eason nntvd to Tilley on his own 30 Tilley and Pharis made nine yards on tliroe ilays through the line and Tilley punt- id on fourth down. Eason punted back, Tilley taking the ball in mid- ield and running to the Hope 30. From that point a series of reverse ilays followed that put the ball on he two-yard line where Pharis plunged over for the first score. Pharis, lien plunged for the extra point. Hope received, Parsons returning to is 35. J. Osmet intercepted a pass on the first play, Durham went around end for eight yards and Pharis drove hrough center for first down. Jimmy Taylor went through to throw Tilley ! or losses on two successful times. Or the next play Tilley dropped back and 'ired a long pass to J. Osmet who took he ball over his shoulder and steppec across the goal line. Pharis again hi he line for extra point. There was no more scoring in the first quarter, but as the second period started Jonesboro had the ball on Sope's 17. The Second Quarter Tilley went around end on a reverse, but the play, good for a touchdown, was nullified. Pharis, on a reverse, swept toward his right end and fired a pass to J. Osmet who latcralled to Telley. which was good for a touchdown. Pharis failed on a line' play for extra point. Born in Austria, He Caught Dream of a ' Greater.

Yet "Heil Schicklgruber!" it ,mtght 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 ."jnyst^rious n?T.' Schicklgruber-Hitler worked,up to become a,petty Austrian official, •' married three times. Adolf was born of the "third wife on April 20, 1889, at'Braunau, Austria, i His father's overbearing ."official" attitude early infected Adolf, left in lim the subconscious feeling of being letter tha nthe masses, not as good the aristocrats. Because he wanted he boy to be an official, too, and Adolf wanted to be an artist, Hitler later stated he went on a scholastic sit- down strike and had to be taken out of school. Actually, Hitler flunked his tudies in secondary school, had to repeat and was withdrawn later. Student of History One subject-alone interested Adolf —History. He early came across his Eather'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 fashionable 13-Mart Group Is Secy.

Hope was given a first down on a penalty, bringing the ball to the 45, Eason and Parsons drove for a first down and then Jonesboro intercepted a pass, but rumbled and Ward of Hope recovered on the Jonesboro 41. Coleman and Parsons added five and then Eason punted over the Jonesboro goal line. Jonesboro took the ball on the 20 where Pharis passed to Barringer who got into an open field and ran 55 yards for a touchdown, Tilley kicked extra point, A few plays later ason punted to the Jonesboro 1-yard line where a Jonesboro back fumbled, Parsons of Hope recovering. The Hurricane line helc on three line plays, but on the fourth Eason went across lor Hope's firs' score J. Taylor missed extra poim Austrians. From this sprang his later concept of the Greater Germany. School-chums regarded Adolf dubiously because of his penchant for "preaching" to an audience or no audience at all, at the trees, if need be. Doubtless, this was the foundation of 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 moilier and father both dead, Hitler migrated to Vienna to study "art." The Art Academy turned down his test drawings as below standard and twice refused him admission. He determined thereupon to be an architect. Rejects Socialism Deluded Nazi followers like to believe—and Nazi bureaucrats and Hitler's book "Mein Kainpf" 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 Gormanophile newspapers instead of art or architecture, kept himself alive by copying and coloring pictures of Vienna's buildings, spent lime in the Parliament sessions where he learned to halep Parliamentariajrs, developed a taste for '.'politics," disputed endlessly with his fellow flophouse! dwellers and urged the firmation of a new party among them. In 1913, he gratified his Germano- phile longings and went to Munich, where he worked as a draftsman. Here he was happy, Then the war broke out. He fell in, Ms knees and "wholeheartedly thanked Heaven," enlisted in the 16th Bavarian Infantry. He served four years, rose to the rank of lance corporal, was wounded, gassed and awarded the Iron Cross, 1st class.

The Hot Springs touchdown was the rtsult of two passes. Good for a little more than 50 yards, both well-hurled by Damby and 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 can-ied 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 Bock Tied FORT SMITH, Ark. —(/P)— 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. The Wildcats had trailed by 7 to 0 since early in the second quarter when Williams started tossing passes in a desperate but successful attempt to knot the score. Bell took the 34-yard heave on the Fort Smith 25-yard line and raced tht lemaining distance for the touchdown. Zawislak place-kicked the'extra point to tie the count. It was the third tie game the unbeaten Wildcats had played this sea, son, and apparently elmiinated them as well as the Grizzlies, who had been beaten by the champion Pine Bluff Zebras, from the championship running in the conference.

Harvey of Hitler and H Duce Bring Headaches to Map Makers CHICAGO.-WV-Map makers complain of the 'Hitler headache." They revised their maps and globes when Italy conquered Eethiopia. 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 companies and a children's encyclopedia say all these 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 and atlases. Archaeology Talks to Begin on Sunday Dr. John T.
