"Federals!" Each of the men beside him <ncw the course as well as he did. Settling' themselves in their saddles, they steadied their horses.

"Now!" yelled Jesse As the cruel spur jammed, shank - deep, into his tensing haunch, the black leaped down the middle of the road he other six horsemen broke in all directions, a literal covey of equine quail bursting outward along every point of the woodland compass. The be latcd hammer of the hidden troop ers' rifle fire sprayed harmlessly as bird shot into the heavy timber In the space of the first soldier volley, every last one of Jesse's men made it cleanly away. Sixty seconds later Jesse was kneeing the black around an abrupt turn in the road, past the last of the heavy brush, into the clean free sweep of the meadowland beyond. And dead into the advancing fronts of two troops of Union cavalry. The column proper, never broke ranks. Two sergeants, well mounted and flanking the lead troop of regulars, drove their horses over the fence almost on top of the flying iblack. Jesse saw his situation. They were too close, onto him, both of 'them. And they had the bad look of knowing their business all too well. Heading the black for the woods, he twisted in the saddle and shot the forward trooper through the body. The youngster fell, dangling his left foot in the qnsidc stirrup. The trained mount reared but brought, up quickly, arid stood. The distorted body of its rider did not move. But. the , dead sergeant's companion had too much horse under him. Twisting again, Jesse emptied his left-hand gun., He missed his man but laughed wildly as he saw the horse; hit three times, stumble and go down. The second -sergeant hit the ground on his feet and with his carbine unslung. He had two seconds before the black would have Jesse within the safety of the oak scrub. He used them: the first to drop to one knee, the second to squeeze off a cool, aimed shot. The ,54-caliber Spencer ball caught Jesse still twisted in the saddle from his downing of the sergeant's horse. It entered low in his left side, ranged up between the ribs, deflected againstth c right shoulder blade and burst out high under his right, armpit. The rupturing pain of its exit told him it had torn his lung in passage. Jesse's dimming mind automatically catalogued and separated the two volleys. The first came with the unmistakable bull's bellow of o .54-caliber carbine fire: the Union Spencers getting into action from the road. The second broke with the familiar staccato rap of a .36-caliber: Cole and the boys, faithfully following him and firing from God knew where or how His next memory was of his horse stumbling. He knew the black was mortally hit. The next instant the blue mud of the creekbank was reaching for Jesse himself He came into it gratefully, belly first, head twisted grotesquely to the left. There was no movement and no sound, save where the slowing pump of his heart lifted the bright blood up into his throat from the torn lung And pushed it, pulse - driven, through the clamped set of his teeth, out upon the waiting claw. Presently that sound, too, ceased. The hemorrhage welled and fell away, the clenched jaw slackened. Heard Shot Didn't Know He Was Hit to_ Clay County, it was 11:08 clay bluffs.

Washburn ^Referral Petition's Main ^Object Is to Help Schools The primary aim of the Petition to refer to a popular vote the 1955 legislative act exempting poultry and livestock feed from the sales tax is to help the public schools of Arkansas. It is a vital part of the state wide effort to obtain a balanced and permanent revenue base for the school system. It is not, as some of the spokesmen for the feed "•u exem P t i° n lobby have tried to claim, an attack upon the" 'farmer. The schools are the responsibility of'everyone— and so is the responsibility for safeguarding the money they run on. , : The poultry industry had the misfortune to 'listen to some bad advice from out-of-state feed houses and to be drawn into a pressure campaign to grab a sales tax .exemption—the first time in the 20-year history of Arkansas' 2% sales tax that a commodity exemption has been made a political issue. As one of those who helped promote the sales tax and • testified in its behalf when if was first enacted 20 years ''"ago I saw in this political exemption the opening wedge which would split and eventually destroy the sales tax as the state-wide support of the public school system. Therefore I have had prepared and legally checked at personal expense this Referral Petition which is now being circulat,- ed and signed all over Arkansas. Every farmer and school patron should consider the position the organized poultrymen have placed themselves in. They claim to be so big an industry that we should give them a sales tox exemption running into the millions—yet ,.^the official assessed valuation of all the chickens in Ark' v ansas as of 1954 was only $52,822. My own country newspaper alone is assessed at $10,000—almost one-fifth of the chicken total for the entire state of Arkansas. Down our way we've tried to do a job on assessing for the public schools for many years. The 1954 official state totals show Hempstead is one of only 19 counties in all Arkansas with an assessment of 15 millions or more. Our actual figure is $20,247,069. I was a member of the Joint Tax Revision Committee which in 1952 drafted the so-called 100% assessment ^measure, Amendment 43. It was smashed in the general ^election last November—but it was a good try, and it bore fruit. For the 1955 legislature enacted the first important new law bracing our voluntary assessing system that Arkansas has known in a generation. I believe the economy of Arkansas requires a fair distribution of the tax burden between property taxes, income and sales taxes. You can't load it all on the backs of those without prooerty. Therefore I and the great majority of Arkansas citizens believe in better assessments and are opposed to any increase in the 2% sales tax. >j My position is twofold: The exemption of feed was a political fraud of the most inhumane kind—swapping off an industry exemption at the price of maintaining and eventually inncreasing the tax on groceries and clothes and medicine. The feed exemption people stood shoulder to shoulder in the 1955 legislature with those who sought to increase the sales tax to 3 96. i Feed exemption passed; the 3% tax was blocked By a filibuster. But the "deal" is still hanging over us. If this Referral Petition fails to be certified by June 8, and the., exemption of feed then takes effect, you will hear that itsi ^l cost in state revenue is so heavy we've got to have a 3% " sales tax. . v ' ; I'm for keeping the sales tax honest—at 2%. As this article is being written for state-wide distribution I offer two exhibits of endorsement and support at my cwn local level: . ' ''-.. ; . . i;r ;. • 1. On April 9-the Board of Directors of Hope Chamber of Commerce endorsed my Referral Petition. The members and officers of the Chamber of Commerce, here as elsewhere in Arkansas, have a long record of co-operation with the school folks in working to obtain a uniform and j£ adequate level of property assessing—as evidenced by our county total of 520,247,069. 2. On April 1 1 the Hope Board of Education accepted the following report from Superintendent James H. Jones: "The most important job that the Board of Education has facing it at this time is cooperating with the city and county in setting up an Equalization Board ana' assisting in selection of appraisers. I think it is safe to assume that we can not expect any more State aid than we are now getting, as I believe it ;.u, has reached the saturation point. The enrichment of '*' our program will have to come from local sources. I will administer to the best of my ability the type of program that the Board desires." 'For the 1955-56 school year Superintendent Jones presented the board with a budget showing a probable deficit of $5,341. Discussion developed the fact that should the exemption of feed from the sales tax be successfully stopped by the Referral Petition this deficit would probably be covered. The minutes of the Board of Directors meeting for Hope ? School District 1-A of April 11 then reflected the following: "The tentative budget was discussed and, although' a deficit of $5,000 is facing the school district, it was decided to maintain approximately the .same level program as 1954-55. By working on the tax equalization program the deficit can be made up from the percentage increase for the next year. Teacher salaries will be maintained at the present level. "After some discussion a motion was made by George Newbern and seconded by Norman Moore .that the Board endorse the action taken by Alex. Washburn. It was the opinion of the Board that the state or schools can not afford to lose the revenue. The Board felt it was impractical and financially unsound to approve any exemptions to sales tax at this time." Two exhibits—reflecting a condition common to all Arkansas . '. . and with but one answer: Endorsement of the Referral Petition.

The proposal called for the foreign ministers of the Soviet Union, the United States. Britain and France to meet with Austrian representatives. (The Western powers earlier had suggested a "clarification" meeting at ambassadorial level, London diplomatic quarters said.) The Soviet call for a foreign ministers conference was made in identical notes handed to U. S. Ambassdor Charles E. Bohlen. British charge d'affaires, C. C. Parrott and French charge d'af- faires Jean Leroy. They were handed the notes by Soviet Foreign Minister Vyache- slav M. Molotov in his Kremlin offices at noon, 12:30 and 1 p. m. respectively. ' Well-informed sources said the notes reviewed the entire Austrian question whin ame to a climax last week when Austrian Chancellor Julius Raab flew here last week and reached an agreement with Russia on the terms they would seek in a state treaty.
