(AP) — A spokesman for McDonnell Douglas Corp. says the company's refusal to consider pay raises for employes is a major stumbling block in contract negotiations with its aerospace workers, but emphasized that the company doesn't want a strike. "We want lo negotiate a settlement consistent with our competitive position with the Boe tin company," he said Tuesday. —Hope (Ark.) Star photo JOE SCOTT addresses Rotarians Scott urges support of license fees hike Among sportsmen in Arkansas one of the hottest items of the day is the proposed increase in hunting and fishing license fees from $3.50 to $7.50. There is good reason for this request and Joe D. Scott of Nashville, chairman of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, told the Hope Rotary Club at the Town and Country restaurant Friday that they should support the increase in fees because the "deficit spending in the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission must stop. If it doesn't there will be no future for these sports." Good hunting and fishing in Arkansas is no accident, the group was told, and this is shown by the 8% million dollar investment over 300,000 acres of land in the state. The commission has built more lakes in Arkansas than have been built in any other state, and Arkansas has the three largest fish hatcheries in the world. Depsite these and other ac- complishments, more development is needed as well as more men and more offices for the G&F Commission. Compared to other states, Arkansas' fees are minimal, and this opinion was voiced by several in the audience. President Gerald Keith welcomed a large number of guests: George Requa, a visiting Rotarian from Sacramento, Calif., who presented a banner from his club; Lyman Armstrong of Madison, Ind., a former Hope Rotary Club president; Paul Choate and BenG. Waller of the G&F Commission; State Representative Larry Patterson; Bob Webb, Jack Beaty, Roy Wray, Ricky Butler; Haskell Jones of KXAR; Roger Head of the Hope Star; and student guests Mike Powell and William Brewer. Program chairman .Benny Coleman introduced the speaker. Letters To The Editor This is your newspaper. Write to it. Address letters to: Editor The Star, P.O. Box 648, Hope, Ark. 71801.

WET OR DRY Editor, The Star: The people of Hope are bitterly against the sale of beer and liquor in Hempstead County. I have lived in Hope all my life and I am past 50 years of age. I was here when the Proving Ground work was going on and also when the soldiers were on maneuvers and had no place to sleep or eat. Hope had beer and liquor on sale and it was NOT flowing down Main Street. Hope got the revenue off this product, and this was a booming town. Now what do we have? Our schools are having drug problems and can't seem to catch the leaders. The people of Hope are spending much more money h^going to Texarkana for fljjjjj^lbeer and liquor. ^'' .'"'. Yes, I am '•$ Christian, although I hate to"see a man or a woman go to' Texarkana to buy drinks and try to drink the town dry before he or she gets back to Hope. Texarkana is making the money that Hope should be making. Now, what does Hope do about the situation? Nothing but go to the bootleggers and say to them: Look, you have not paid your dues so we will shut you off for a while. Yet, the beer and liquor sneakers are still drinking. There are very ftw people who fcnow what is really going on in this town. However, if a stranger comes into town there is always someone to let him know just where to go to get the products. Why do people want Hope dry when the liquor is already flowing down all the streets—without the revenue taxes. People of Hope ought to look around their homes and say: Do I want my children to take dope or do I want them to have a social drinl^ with others? No one is going to force you to take dope or to drink if you don't want to. People raised in true Christian homes will not drink nor will they use dope. You see some people stagger all over the sidewalks and even fall down, and that did not happen when beer and liquor were legalized and Hope was getting the revenue. Sometimes I wonder if we were living like we did in the 1940's life would be better for all concerned. NAME WITHHELD ON REQUEST CLUB THANKS Editor The Star: On behalf of the Hope Leo Club, thank you for publicity given our recent rummage sale. We would like to take this means to express to all the merchants of Hope who assisted us and the Hope Lions Club our sincere appreciation. Very truly yours, HOPE LEO CLUB Dianne Croom, President October 24, 1974 Hope, Ark. 71801 LETHAL POT SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — The San Rafael Independent- Journal recently received a frantic phone call from a man who did not identify himself. He told the newspaper that someone had stolen a 7.5-foot- high marijuana plant from the front porch of his home which he had been spraying with a deadly drug which could prove fatal if the leaves from the plant were smoked. "I was doing it according to instructions in a handbook which said if properly handled the plant would become super- pot," the caller said, "but the treatment had not been completed. "I can't go to the police, but I don't want someone to die, either."

Hope Lions heard District Governor, District 71, Bob Shaddock Monday during the weekly luncheon hour at the Town and Country restaurant. Shaddock, from Camden, is a former educator and is serving his second term as district governor. The visit was not the one usually called the "official visit" but rather to present plans and needs for a million dollar expansion fund for the blind rehabilitation facility operated by the Lions of Arkansas in Little Rock under the name of Arkansas Enterprises for the Blind or AEB. AEB is a charter member of the National Accreditation Council for Agencies serving the blind and visually handicapped. The program started in 1939 to train and employ blind persons to operate vending stands. During the first year 18 persons were served from four states. Now, 28 years later, more than 3300 blind and visually handicapped persons from all 50 states in America and from 20 other nations have received personal adjustment, prevocational and vocational training at the center. At present, the rehabilitation center is valued at 1% million dollars, has an annual operating budget of over 1 million dollars and employs more than 90 professional and supportive staff members. The speaker supported his remarks with color slides as he presented his message. A recent survey has revealed that there are 1,700,000 blind in the U.S. alone and due to the high place in the nation this center has earned, there is now a need for major expansion if it serves the demands made on it. The expansion is proposed in three phases, each for a special building facility, that will total one million dollars when completed. The appeal was made to Lions on a personal participation basis; however, the AEB is open to gratefully receive from any source who wishes to help. District Governor Shaddock complimented the local club on its spirit and activity, and particularly on the recent District Conference held here and the club's outstanding membership gain last year. The Rev. Cecil Bates, pastor of Liberty Baptist Church, Hope was the guest of Lion Jim Gunter. Larry Brown was guest of Lion John King and two young ladies, Pam Thrash and Robin McLelland, members of the Leo Club, were also guests.
