Did yon pay a like deficit for the year ID:tt) and prior years out of your annual bond sales V" asked Mr. Caklwell. •Mr. Parnell, n excerpts from his opening campaign speech reprinted on this page answered, in effect, that the irioney to meet the 1981 deficit would come from tlie sale of additional bonds, and it is pretty clear that is whcra it came from this year. A man, having gotten himself so far into debt that he cannot meet his obligations, may perhaps stave oft the day of reckoning by'furUier borrowing, qnd that it seems is what Governor Parnell proposes for Arkansas. He defends his course on the grounds Unit natural increase in highway department revenues, the result in largs part of the road program, will ultimately provide the means for paying out. Rather a dangerous program, it scms to us, or does the governor have in the back of his head the idea of a . further ' boost in the gasoline tax, of perhaps even the ultimate • turning back on the land owners of the road district bonds the state is now carrying? One or the other wll have to . come if the governor's optimism proves unwarranted, and it is lip to'taxpayers ' of this and other bonded comities to watch proceedings at Little Rock with care. BLYTHEVILLE, (ABK.) COURIER-NEWB No War For Japan The discussion over the London treaty has caused sotna Americans to drag the old Japanese bogie out of the attic and look it over again with fear- filled hearts. Before we get real panic. ky about it, however, \vj might pay attention to some recent remarks by W. R. Castle, Jr., why lias just returned .to the country after serving as our special ambassador to Japan. "It is amazing to me, once more at home in Washington, to find the anti- treaty people still harping on the Jap- OUT OUR WAY ancsc bogie," says Mr. Castls. "Japan could hardly live except for her exports to America, amounting to nearly $'100,- QOO.OOO, She imports from us nearly ?300,000,000 worth of goods and depends on America for tin; cotton which she manufacture?- and re-exports to China. Wiir ^vilh America, which would be serious for us, would be ruin for Japan." That is sober sensi-. In the face of it, why get so worried about one or two extra cruisers in the .Japanese fleet?

Clinton Caldwell of Ihis county, in an open letter to members o! the state highway commission, published on the first page of this paper, says a deficit of $5,500,000 is In sight next year, and he produces the figures lo back up his contention, Harvey Parnsll, governor of Arkansas, sees Ihe thing differently. He admits lhal revenues will be inadequate, although by eliminating the "turn back" to the county judges, and by allowing only 51,592.500 for maintenance, he manages to strike a balance without leaving anything for new construction. Bui he proposes to sell more highway bonds to permit continuation of the stale program. Here is wlial he said about the mailer in ihe opening address of his campaign at Jonesbcro June 28: " I give you in round figures our present road revenue and road obligations and requirements: Present annual road revenue from auto license, gas tax, etc $1 Requirements to pay interest ol state highway obligations in 1931 3,157,500 Annual requirements to pay maturing bonds and interest ol old road district bonds fi,500,000 Requirements for 1931 to pay maluring interest- and principal of certificate issued in aid of paving continuations of highways through towns 200,000 Annual expense of highway department salaries and expense of engineers, printing, auto tags, etc 300,000 Tolal annual revenue required, not including cost of maintenance . $10,151,500 ire restored to the senders.

LEWIS AND CI.A11K On July 25, 1805; the Lewis and Clark expedition discovered the three forks of the Missouri river and named them the Jefferson. Madison and Gallatin. The party, -consisting of Mori- weihe,- Lewis. William Clark and 27 other men. had started from Ihe vicinity of St. Louis in May of that year. After reaching Ihe three forks, the explorers proceeded up the Jefferson, crossed Ihe Reeky Mountains in September, then went down the Columbia river and, on Nov. 7. tame In sight of the Pacific ccran. They spent the winter on the coast and started the return Journey on March 23, 1806, and arrived in SI. Louis in September of that, year, having traveled a distance of nearly 8500 miles. For more than a year the explorers had been cut off from all communication with the outside world and suffered terrible hardships. However, they collected a mass of valuable information about, .the physical characteristics ol the connlry, Us cllmale and Ihe Indian tribes. The expedition was commemorated in 1905 by the Lewis and i Clark Centennial nl Portland, O:c. Left for maintenance of state highways $ 1,592,500 "It is taking all the current revenue to pay interest on slate road cbligations, lo pay the old district bonds and interest, maintenance and general expense. Without, new highway bonds, new construction must stop. Without new construction, the annual increase in revenue from the gas tax will slop. "Almost wholly due lo our road building program, our road revenue from gasoline lax alone is increasing a hundred thousand dol- ax. Arkansas can never sell more Miids than it can pay with that $7,£00,000 a year, and when my opponents tell you differently, Ihey forfeit all right to your confidence. "There can be no new construction or further aid to counties if we call a halt on Ixmd issues. The present revenues simply won't stretch far enough to cover it. Bui thai does nol mean lhat the iiigh- way program has over-shot its revenues or exhausted its resources. It has nol. There is yet margin for wise continuation of the build- Ing program, bolh on the state highway system and on the farm to market roads if the present program is not disrupted. 'The cosl of the old road dis- li'tct bonds which Ihe Stale is pay- Ing will in a few years get each year, as some of Ihese districts are paid otil. The revenues arc increasing more than a million dollars a year as new roads arc built and traffic increases. The new roads earn more lhan they cost. "Having given tlie highway program the most profound study from the very beginning. I find that after [his year, Arkansas can issue ten or twelve million dollars in bonds in each of the years ol 1931 and 1932. To this construction fund will be addetl tlie two million dollars of Federal aid. "With the eighteen million dollars which will be spent in 1Q30 and with this construction revenue In 1931 and 1932, our present Elate highway system can be completed including high type surface on our heavily Iraveled roads. "Then In 1933 and 1D34 the total highway bond issue wilt not exceed four million dollars a year, which with the Iwo million dollars Federal aid will give a total of six million dollars annually to build other much needed roads. This would end our borrowing for that would be all the bonds that could be paid off with seven and a hall million dollars a year, consequently all that could be legally issued. "By that time, however, our requirements for paying old road district bonds and interest would have materially been reduced and our road revenue far above what- it U today, so that we will then have a surplus revenue of at least two million dollars a year that can go into road construction and with a like amount in Federal aid. we will have, from then on without borrowing. an annual road construction fund of at least four million dollars a year." All Kinds of The collection now 0:1 hand here <W>iances, by suitable ex- lars a mcnlh. More roads arc needed, more roads mean more revenue to finance the building ol other roads. a * s "While the old road districts are "mortgages on your lands you know that the State is now paying these for you. and tlie new highway bomis are Jict mortgages on your homes. No amount of political poppycock can ever make you believe that. The highway bonds are based upon the stale's pledge to keep its revenue from gas tax and license feos up to $7,500,000 a year, and never to issue any more bonds than it can pay tboth principle and interest) with that $7,500,000 a year.
