Mr. Pilkititon said tlial advocate o( tin 1 abolition of the $1 poll tax dc dared No. 21! would snvo money fo Ilio taxpayers, ;;nd would improve th character of Arkansas voting. . The .senator-elect said in his opinion it would do neither. He said No. 2G would fix mi the county assessors the duty of making up registration lists of eligible voters, and that the county !it,yes.sors would then demand more pay. Mr. Piikinton declared that two notorious machine political centers, Kansas City and Memphis, thrive on just .such a registration system as No. 2f> proposes to .substitute for the poll tax system. The .speaker attacked No. 28, the refunding proposal, on the ground that while it possibly would save 20 million dollars' interest over period of years, and would prohibit the spending of highway revenues for any purpose other than highways, at the same lime it would fix an additional public debt on Arkansas, and mijjht possibly increase the tax burden. Mr. Pilkinton asserted that some of 1 the bonds of real estate promotion improvement districts around Little Rock would be absorbed by the state, under No. 2«. He also attacked the measure on the ground that it would reduce the coun- ( ty turnback fund from % cent to V5s Michigan Democrats are counting on electing Governor Frank Murphy 16 a econd term. Republicans predict former Governor ''rank D. Fitzgerald will sweep the ilntc, return it to Republican control, md place it squarely behind Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg as a possible 940 presidential candidate -.. Murphy A "True Liberal" Murphy, like Vandenberg, has been s-pokcn of as presidential timber. The Michigan governor, a frequent visitor it the White House, has been described jy President Roosevelt as a "true liberal." Vdndenborg has advocated a coalition of Republicans and "Jcffcr- sonian Democrats" to beat the New Deal. Murphy, a former Detroit mayor, rcturno din 1936 from his post as American high coYiVmissioncr to the Philippines and defeated Fitzgerald for the governorship. The great Industrie strikes followed and Murphy was hailed by his friends as a master arbitrator. Murphy followers claim labors support in the current contest. Fitzgerald has bid for the support of advocates of industrial peace urging creation of a state mediation board to arbitrate strikes. Heavy Vole Indicated The red-haired, 45-year-old bachclo governor, citing huge grants in aic that the state has received from the Roosevelt administration, is urging Michigan to string along with the President. Fitzgerald's recent reply wns "the voters and not President Roosevelt arc going to dictate who shall be governor." Michigan election officials report huge increases in registrations and predict a record vote. The bitter fight to return Michigan to the Republican side of the ledger where she was listed during most of icr statehood, has been carrid into the congressional districts. Neither Republican Senator Vandonberg nor Democratic Senator Prentiss Brown faces an election this year. Star WEATHER.

Now those two promises an clashing. The easier path for England woul X! to hand the mandate for Palestine jack to the League of Nations. But hat it will never do. Palestine means lot in the British scheme of things. Palestine has excellent harbors for the Sritish east Mediterranean fleet. The oil tank lines which pipe rich oil from the fields of Irak end up in Palestine, where the oil is pumped into ships heading for England. Palestine, too, is a stopping place for commercial airplanes enroute to India and the Far East and an important base for military planes. England therefore has no intention of seeing this important little country fall into the hands of Mussolini or Hitler. England will stick, regardless of the cost. In the meantime, it is eVnploying 18,000 troops, 6,000 police and increasing numbers of fighter and bomber plans to put down the Arab terror.

Attired in blue, the plumpish 32-year old Mrs. Goldstein walked onto the witness stand at 9:30 a. m. and didn't leave it except for lunch and brief recesses until 5 p. m. And when all the questioning was over, it was Mrs. Goldstein who appeared to be the calmest person in the courtroom. Apparently the word got out that Mrs. Goldstein, the "Peck's bud boy of the trial" was on the stand, because the largest crowd of the eight-day trial packed into the courtroom.
