He said another proposal laid before him was thai Ihe suite take over "breakage" on horse and dog racing. N't-w Tux Suggestions _ LITTLE ROCK - (/!') — Governor Carl K. Bailey said Tuesday his office had received a number of .suggestions- (hat the 52nd general assembly levy additional taxes or increase existing nne.s. The legislature convenes Ji.nuary fl. The .sugnc.stii.ins included a pro- ' posal that the retail sales tax be hiked from two to three per cent. Answering a question at a press conference, Bailey said he had formed n:> conclusion about the suggestions. ruined ,,.The maniifaclurer.s issued to the -OAmcrican people a document noted for its calm, sane, informed projxisal.s fur business. You do not have to agree with this document, but you do have to respect it. U will do more for business than all the furious denunciation of Ihe last four years] One of the strangest episodes in public relations and business statesmanship in the last half century has been the attitude of business toward the Roosevelt admini.stralion. When the President ca'mf into power business was flat on its hack and business men-bankers, utility executives, investment bankers, promoters— were in a .slate of disgrace. The public naturally supposed that Roosevelt would turn upon them wilh unexampled vigor and enmity. Hooscvelt Called Husiness Kirsl Thc President, of course, in .speeches and addresses , did attack business abuses. Who would not have done so'.' Bill the moment ho was inaugurated he invited the business men of Die nation tn Washington and literally lurn- ecl things- over to them. Few will recall this out of the mists of the la.sl six years. There has been so much confusion. But it is true. A prominent big business executive | was named secretary of the treasury. A vice president, later president, of tlie !

The N. R.

A nex lax on livestock auctioneers to provide funds to match federal moneys available for combatting Bang's disease among cattle. An increase from G 1 /. to 7 cents on each gallon of gasoline sold. A new ad valorem tax on oil royal- tiofs. The governor said the sales tax increase had been proposed with the common schools, university, state supported colleges and the 'public welfare department to share the added revenues. ... The proposal for the half ccni w in- crca.se in the gasoline lax contemplated the placing of the additional revenue in a fund to be used solely for construction of hard-surfaced roads, Bailey said. Thc governor Tuesday night was only aboul half way through a scries of conferences with heads of slate institutions and departments on biennial budgets to be submitted to the legislature for appropriations. The conferences will continue Wednesday. Bailey said thnt some of the requests were "definitely in line with the previous appropriations." He said that if any trend had been developed, it was slightly upward. Legislative Strategy Some saw the suggestion of an increase in the gasoline tax as a buffer designed to offset demands for a rc- duclion and thus eventually result in a compi-omi.se with the levy remaining at its present level. Hep. John P. Vesey of Hope announced here recently that he would attempt to obtain passage of a bill cutting the lax two cents a gallon. Boih houses in 11IIJ7 passed his bill calling fur a one-cent reduction but it was veined by Bailey, who said a reduction would constitute a violation ol the bond refunding act of 1934. Bailey said he was "delighled" with an announcement of Congressman E. C. B;.thinys of West Memphis that he would introduce a bill in congress to adjust freight rates. Among provisions of Ihe proposal is on calling for application of the lowest rule on a long haul. ".Such a bill would be distasteful to Hit- Kastorn industrial group and might drive (hem to support ;i reorganization of Ihe interstate commerce commission," Bailey said. (He recently suggested decreasing Ihe commission's membership to five. Bailey repeatedly has charged a "small industrial group in Ihe East" with causing the retention of "freight rates discriminalory to Ihe South). Presbyterian Men Will Meet Thursday The monthly meeting of the Men of Ihe Church. Presbyterian, will be held at. 7 o'clock Thursday night at the church. Dinner will be served at (hat time. cheer as re- l-i:r(s were tahulateil at noon from tho first day's drive in the city.

Biggest Men Asked (11 Advise The secretary of commerce, with presidential approval, invited about 20 | of the biggest business 'jv.'en lo Wash- | ington as the administration'.s Indus-' trial Advisory Council "to chart the future course of American economic life." Thc council included the president of the Chamber of Commerce, chairman of the board of U. S. Steel, and so on. In those days men like Donald Richberg were looked upon as the left wing loxpiire.

The only dangerous group was the group investigating Wall Street, but that had been organized before Roosevelt was elected. And when the S.E.C. was formed, the President put a well- known conservative Wall Street figure, right out of a brokerage office, in as chairman and a WallSlrcet broker as assistant to the chairman. There was plenty more of this. I.s it nol strange that with all this powerful inside grip on the machinery of the First New Deal business let Ihe President slip out of their band;.'.' Why'.' Because they permitted the hatreds and fury of a few men who had a quarrel with the President lo poison their whole relationship with him. He was theirs. He was in their hands. And they threw him away. Since then (hey have done more' by their attacks to build him into a great popular figure than all Ihe propaganda of the so-called New Deal publicity agents put together. Al last Ihey seem to have recovered their reason. •1)1 Die ;iK-.:.u!i,-:,L appeals for aid were rcachin(.! officials.

Chamberlain's blunt notice came in response to a question in parliament inspired by recent Italian clamor for iunis and other Fench possessions. Schacht Arrives In the midst of ruffled Anglo-British fee mgs Hjalmar Schacht, president of the Reichsbank, arrived on an unofficial visit, reportedly to discuss tinancing Jewish emigration. The prime minister's rebuke of the German press Tuesday night, and the consequent absence of all German representatives from the dinner where he spoke, raised speculation as to whether a barrier had arisen against any v tull peace understanding between the *! two powers. A German foreign pffice spokesman «u ' Yf?

This was inter- \ preted to mean that Italy would get something when Chamberlain confers with II Duce.next month. At the same time Italy announced an increase of 5129,770,000 in appropriations for armed forces for the 193940 fiscal year. th B ! rl r 1 r d i pl0matic sources expressed the belief that the annexation of Metti- el, under normal Lithuanian control, Avould be a matter of weeks now that the Memel Nazis have tightened the control on their legislature.
