HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Contracts Are Let for Road Building Bids on Other Projects Will Be Received January 5 LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—<>P)~-The State Highway Commission awarded contracts for road obstruction totaling about $230,000 Thursday and announced- bids on other projects would be received January 5. No action was taken on a proposal of Tennessee Highway Commissioner M. O. Allen that the Arkansas department share the costs o.f a survey for a proposed $3,000,000 bridge over the Mississippi river at Memphis. The commission also withheld decision on location of an overpass spanning Rock Island tracks in South Little Rock. Groups of citizens have disagreed over where they want the span located. A delegation from Nashville urged the blacktopping of state highway 24 from Nashvilleto Lockesburg. Spokesmen also asked that the route be given a federal designation. A group from Searcy and Heber Springs requested the blacktopping of State No. 16 between the cities. A Eudora lawyer requested the commission to pave nine blocks of state highways 8 and 159 within the city limits there. Highway Director W. W. Mitchell said one of the projects to be advertised for contract letting at the January meeting called for four miles of concrete paving on the Turrell-Gilmore road, United States 63, Crittenden county.

GIBSON DRUG CO. was the year he was having trouble in the Human Hair case. Suspected As Smuggler Assistant United States Attorney General Brien McMahon announced in Washington that the Justice Department was investigating reports that Coster "had engaged in smuggling arms and munitions to belligerent coun-| tries." During the day. Coster, George Dietrich, assistant vice president of McKesson & Robbins, and George Vernard, agent in charge of the fi market operations, were indicted on charges of conspiracy and filing false statements with the New York Stock Exchange in connection with McKesson & Robbins securities sold to the public. Fraud Charges Detailed James J. Caffrey, regional administrator of the Securities Exchange Commission, said that McKesson & Robbins had carried on its books as sellers to its crude drug division seven concerns that did not exist. He said investigation abroad had established that legitimate London firms listed on the corporation's books as heavily indebted to it never had "any dealings'' with McKesson & Robbins. Caffrey said that his agents found a printing concern that had provided, upon Vernard's orders, stationery for the seven hypothetical concerns. The trail to the printer led from an address on a bundle of wrapping paper picked up "in a vacant office once ostensibly occupied by Vernard." Robert Kline, assistant general counsel for the SEC, said that in his opinion "the principal motive for the filing of false statements" in behalf of the firm was 'the mulcting of the company by certain persons of about $150,000 annually as commissions on sales which were never made." "A secondary motive," he added, "was that these persons were anxious to build up the assets position of the corporation."
