As far as the eye might reach across the colling; creeks and loamy 'bottom- lands'oi Old Missouri, spring lay everywhere upon the land. Everywhere, perhaps, save in the hearts and ; minds of the two small boys lingering in the warming dust of Centeryille's Pleasant Grove schoolyard. .-, The'.elder of the boys, a square- shouldered lad of 13, spat uneasily into ,the dirt. "Dingus," he said to his companion, "what you reckon has. happened to Bud? I bet he's tooken another hiding from Old Colonel." The' 'smaller boy, clearly his brother, did-not answer at once. He was no more than eight years old,;,: .and, poorly grown for that age.'.His pale blue eyes appeared weak and watery and he blinked them with a nervous constancy bordering affliction. His voice was as thin and quick as the blink of his strange, eyes. this century loomed so f erred to it. 'Bud will show up," was all he said. • ' ' "Well, .supposing he don't?" challenged the other. "You meaning to go on through with it, any- ways?" Dingus looked at him. "Ma wants that nigger back, and we know : .where he" is," ho said. He said it as if it was the last word on the subject. The older boy, im- 'essed, was hot quite convinced. "Uncle Ebon's no good anyhow you look at him," he objected. "He ain't worth a mouthful of ashes, 'and you know it." "You losing your sand, Buck?" The.re was a touch of impulsive anger, in the smaller boys question. Surprisingly, the older lad de- The fact remained that three small boys, accompanied only by a rusted revolver, were intending to swim the Big Muddy in spring flood, cross into enemy Kansas and free a Negro field hand liberated but 72 hours earlier in the opening slove raid of Aid Missouri's "dark and bloody" Border War. Dingus hitched up his galluses, spat into the dust of Old Sam's front yard. As he started for the front stoop his whistle and the wil-! low switch he had picked up en 1 route were going full blast. i When his reaching foot struck the first plank of the weathered stoop, his high-pitched, "Hello, in there! Anyb ody at home?" sang out with innocence and purity. Out back by the smokehouse, the Hedbone hound missed a snore, pulled his head up out of the dust, cleared the crusted flies from done. "Take that rope you brung along and snub him to yonder sapling," Dingus ordered Bud quickly. "Snub him good and short.' ' Bud slipped the rqpe around his neck and led him uncomplaining down the slough toward the cottonwood indicated by Dingus, who followed him. "Get out of my way," said Dingus. The other boy moved unthink- aside. As he did, Dingus past him. Bud's mouth in shocked disbelief, now, Dingus}" he cried. "Shut up!" snapped his pale- eyed companion, and holding the big gun with both small hands he shoved it into the side of the old dog's head and pulled the trigger.

HOPE, ARKANSAS, TUESDAY, AMULM2, 19S5 Th« Dear Lady... Circulation of the Petition to Refer the Sales Tax Exemption of Feed beaan April 11 with copies available ., In the downtown establishments of Hope and In half of the required 15 counties. The following Is a letter which The Editor wrote on April 11 to the leader of a women's organization In another county: 1 1 appreciate the opportunity of talking to you over the phone this morning and trust your organization will circulate the Referral Petition. Briefly, I have paid for the printing and legal advice in Little Rock personally. Twenty years ago, in February 1935, I appeared before a legislative committee to advocate passage of the 2% sales tax to help our prostrate ^. public school system; and the idea was written into law ^ J the following month, March 1935. I have editorially defended the tax and worked personally ever since to keep it from being raided and destroyed. Such a raid, and such threatened destruction, now confront the sales tax — and it is necessary to circulate this Petition so that all the people may have a chance to vote to save the sales tax in November 1956. The facts are these: The big feed houses stirred up some of the poultry- men and stockmen to demand arbitrarily that their animal feed^be exempt- from the 2% tax. They captured j. the legislature, destroyed one governor, and now have '" captured a second governor. It is the first time in the history of the sales tax that a one-industry exemption has been made a state-wide political issue. If the precedent is permitted to stand the way will have been opened for additional strong-arm exemptions — and the sales tax will be destroyed. The legislative exemption of animal feed was made in bad political faith. Animal feed was exempt while the 2% tax was continued on human food — with the further certainty that this tax on human food will be agitated ^ upward to 3%. I would remind you that Forrest Rozzell, v *' the Arkansas Education Association and other sponsors of the 3% sales tax have refused to participate in the circulation of this Petition. They are belittling it on the grounds that the.exemption of animal feed "takes away from the state only $750,000 a year — mere peanuts" This is the minimum figure quoted by the poultry and ivesrock feed sellers themselves. After June 8, however, should this Petition fail to be certified and the feed exemption take effect, you can expect the propaganda line to change suddenly and bellig- y. erently. Then they will say what the school accountants have said all along, that this exemption is going to cost the state 3 million dollars a year or more — and then they will start beating the drums for a 3% sales tax. The net effect, therefore, will -be that animal feed will have been exempt while the tax on human food and clothing and medicine will have been increased to 3%. This statement is beyond reasonable controversy. I was the main speaker against the 3% tax proposal at the House Revenue & Taxation Committee hearingMn Little Rock last February 21, and it w.as true then and £ was true at the close of the 1955 session that the advocates of a 3% sales tax had enough votes to enact if — had the measure nol been blocked by a filibuster. The advocates of exemption of animal feed were openly with the 3% tax men. So I charge that this was a political fraud of the most inhumane kind — swapping off an industry exemption at the price of raising the tax on groceries and clothes and medicine. And unless these conspirators are checkmated with a valid and certified Referral Petition before June 8, 1955, the deal will still come off. £ . It will of course be the death of the sales tax as such, for there will be moves for the exemption of additional industries and commodities, the sales tax will ultimately be challenged in its entirety — and we will be right back where we started in the school-bankrupt days of 1935. y That I am right and that these other people are wrong must be apparent from the fair success with which . the 2% sales tax has helped support the public schools , these last 20 years. ^ I need help to circulate the Petition.

Segregation Issue Focuses on Virginia By JERRY T. BAULCH WASHINGTON W) — Arguments before the S up r e ma Court on how and when to wipe out racial segregation in the ; public schools moved briskly today with attention focused on Virginia and South Carolina. Those two states, like Kansas and Delaware—rwhose ' views were ?iven yesterday —want time and freedom to intergrate in their own way. But attorneys for Negro children in all four states want the high court to order color line eliminated by the start of school next fall; certainly not later than September 1956. Both sides agree for the most part that the Supreme Court should turn over to low federal courts the job of supervising the desegregation proces s . However, the states want the district courts to be given little if any instruction on how to carry out the task while the Negroes insist the Supreme Court should spell it out. By ALTON L.
