Mr. Holt announced at Little Hock that It would probably.take 10, days or two weeks for him to personally tour the various roads. He lias already Inspected three Pulaski county districts' road systems. Seventeen districts—flivc in Pulaski county, nine in Mississippi county, two in Phillips county and one in Crittenden—have filed application with state Treasurer for a total of $320,388.13 under the act No. 2S5. Mississippi county's turnback fund under the one-cent turnback law, amounting to more than $6,000, hns been withheld by tlie state treasurer pending rulings by the attorney general. Practically every district which has applied for aid under the new act lias been receiving aid from the county turnback funds. One of the question. 1 ; asked Mr. Holt by Treasurer Page was whether the funds available under Act No. 325 of 1939 were to' supplement cr replace funds heretofore available to the districts from the turnback. In the past such road districts In Mississippi county have used all of the half-cent turnback for their maturity and Interest payments. The attorney general lias been asked to rule separately on the eligibility of each district seeking aid under Act No. 325. The act, introduced by Frank Williams of Osceola, Mississippi county representative, was defended In the legislature by its sponsors against charges that "Justin Matthews" (Pulaskl county districts) would benefit under the measure.
