The Un-American Amendment 35 would dep'riye thousands and thousands of our Fighting Men of their Right to return to their jobs under existing contractual agreements. Don't let the passage of this dangerous Amendment Betray this trust? * * DEFEAT the "Out-of-State" Sponsors of Amendment 35, Who Would "Outlaw" Progress In Arkansas * * DON'T VOTE AWAY ARKANSAS' FUTURE DEVELOPMENT Simple reasoning will convince you that passage of Amendment 35 will result in lowered wage levels and that working conditions will decline far below the American standard; that skilled labor will not migrate to Arkansas if collective bargaining is "outlawed." - THAT THE PARALYZING EFFECT OF LOWER WAGES, LOWER FARM INCOME AND LOWER PURCHASING POWER WILL DOOM THE FUTURE GROWTH OF ARKANSAS.

Get tha special seryke at your SinclairG«K>yoe_Dealer'i Sinclair't Pott-War Program: Better Products, Batter Service The passage of Amendment 35 would cancel the resolute effort of far-sighted men who have been working and planning to increase the income of our farmers. .Obviously, our farmers must have ready markets for their produce. The ^worker, who is the foundation of consumption, must have good wages and good working condi- tions if he is to provide a good market for Hie farmer. The better the wages and working conditions THE BIGGER THE FARMER'S MARKET. Don't let dangerous Amendment 35 lower the income of Arkansas' farm families by-impoverishing the farmer's best customer, the worker. DON'T VOTE AWAY YOUR ECONOMIC SECURITY The adoption of dangerous Amendment 35 would throw Arkansas back more than fifty years—into the bottom of the economic pit of business failure. It would drive industry, constructive effort and skilled workers out of Ar- kansas. It would strangle markets and impoverish workers and farmers. It would derange Arkansas with hate and disunity. Arkansas would be ridiculed and condemned by her sister states. Why Is Amendment 35 Being Operated by "Out-of-State" Men Who Represent Monopolistic Pressure Groups that Want .to Sneak in on Arkansas . . . at a Time War . . . and Put Over a Pretty-Sounding Law that Would Ruin Arkansas?
