Sen, Ellender (DLa), who wants continue the present 90 per cent supports on basic crops, agreed with Aiken that 100 per ment parity "js out of the question."

You know ithat 'I handled, more than one and one-half million dollars of your tax money and that each and every dollar was' placed where it belonged. And that I handled thousands of criminal cases ranging from misdemeanors to felonies and. all kinds of civil cases and waited upon all the courts of. our County.

I believe in enforcing all the laws justly, but in dealing with juveniles arid, some unfortunates, I think justice should be tempered with mercy. These things I learned from hard experiences. "I humbly ask your vote and support, and if you again elect me your Sheriff and Collector, I shall again give^ you the service, with more experience, to which you are so justly entitled." Claud H.

The GOP leadership lost control last night and, • when that became apparent, agreed to accept the household appliance cut. .The vote for it was -64-23. There remains a good possibility the appliance tax cut, from 10 to 5 per cent, will be knocked out in conference with the House, which voted no such reduction. Sen.

With the planting seasons for ma; jor crops almost upon them, they are in direct need of general, slow soaking rains. But such rain comes after the next two weeks, it will delay lanting. The Weather Bureau In Little Rock hasn't brought its figures up to date for the state as a whole. But it says the picture generally is that January was a wet month, February was close to normal and, March so far has been dry. Rains last week and this week] haven't helped hte farmlands much because they have been light of the showery type. and Through rianfall in yesterday, the March Little Rock was 2,33 inches below normal, and weather bureau spokesmen say the Little Rock figures usually are very closa to the state average. "This -is the season when we usually get .spring rains which re plenish the subsoil moisture,", said Lester H,' -Wila'nd of the Agricul tural Statistician's office. "The farmers desperately need rains in the next two weeks, not only for their soil but also for their stock ponds." The normal planting season for corn begins April 1. Cotton, rice and soybean planting usually be gins about midApril, Most potato and oat crops prob ably have been planted already, Wiland noted, that the dry wea ther has helped the farmers in one way. "Land preparation throughout the state is unusually well ad vanced," he said. "The farmers are in good shape as far as getting ready for planting — now if they can just get some, good rain.
