Merrill, Kroger president. "Although this bill is designed to destroy, not regulate the chain store industry, we found in a recent survey that only 9 per cent of Kroger, City Meat Market CHOICE K. C. MEATS, HOT TAMALES and OYSTERS. PROMPT FREE DELIVERS-. PHONE TUT stockholders knew of the bill and its threat to their investments. Twenty- two per cent knew vaguely of the bill, and 69 per cent had never heard of it," Morrlll wrote. "By a method of graduated taxes based on the number of stores multiplied by the number of. states in which we do business, this tax, if imposed, would levy on the Kroger company, in addition to all other taxes, the fantastic sum of 572,456,000 annually. This U more than double our annual payroll; it is 515,000,000 in excess of our gross assets which have been accumulated during 53 years, and it is 25 times the aggregate of dividends paid in 1937," he continued. Stressing the seriousness of the Patman Bill threat, Morill pointed out that, "such a tax would wipe out property of thousands of chain store investors, property they have accumulated over a period of years by labor and self-denial. In addition, it would throw 1,200,000 chain store employes and an estimated 4,500,000 dependents on the uncertainty of finding other means of support. Farmers, producers and the vast consuming public, all of whom are benefited by the chain store method of distribution would suffer," Morrill declared. I KNOWI-AND IT SAVES HOURS OF IRONING TIME...

Fruit Cakes—Christmas Pasteries Blue Ribbon Bread Federal Funds for Electric Project Rural Power Lines for Several Southwest Arkansas Counties TEXARKANA—The Southwest Arkansas Electric Co-operative corporation of Texarkana, Ark., Wednesday was allotted 5267,000 for another rural electric power line project. This project will be for 228 miles and will serve 989 members in Polk, Sevier, Howard, Hempstend, Miller and Lafayette counties in Arkansas. In addition, there was a provision for a portion of this allotment to be used for an extension of the Miller county power into Bowie county, Texas. This line is 170 miles long, serving 300 customers, and radiates from Texarkana. Construction work on these projects will be started immediately. Jack Davis, co-ordinator for the corporation said. W. E. Williams of Garland is president. In addition, the local organization now is preparing to map out plans for two more lines and two additional extensions. One of the new lines planned is to go into western Hempstead county, Nevada county, Columbia county and the portion of Lafayette county that will not be touched by another line, Davis said. This will be 110 miles long. The other line, to be 125 miles long, will serve Ouachita county. • An extension from the line authorized Wednesday will be mapped embracing 50 miles in Pike and northern Hempstead counties. There will be an extension planned for six miles from Mandeville to Sanderson lane. These power lines cost approximately $1000 a mile, Davis said.
