Will Be Closed On Sunday Liquor Revenues Hit High Level State's Income Increased Over Million Dollars In 9 Months M'lTLE ROCK, Ark., <S|il.) A]>r. 25.—Consumption of lak'elly-.slamp- ed nlcoholic beverages In Arknnsn.s continue* nl peak level despite the fuel about onc-U'ilni of Ilia slate ha.s gone gack to prohibition, according to Stute Hcvenuc Commissioner oiho Cook The State of Arknnsns profiled t>y $4.376,208.80 In all kinds ot alcoholic beverage taxes and permiU elm-Inn the first ,,t Mc . monlhs of the fiscal year 1945-1U. This con- sldPnibly exceeded simitar collec- lion.s of ?3.184,30fi.31 for thc identical period a year earlier. Over in Mississippi, a stnU; Ihir, hns operated under out-right, prohibition since 19^0, State Tax Collector (/nrl N. Cl-nlg Is employing n force of flflccn agents to collect a ten per cent so-called "lllack- innrkcl Tax" on liquor sales. 11 averages about $80.000 a month. "Part of the supplies ot liquor flowing Into 'dry' Mississippi come thronuh Arkansas," Craig snys. "bul most of It;'is shipped iliruiiijli Louisiana vvliich has a very low export tax." "My Job is lo enforce (he black- market tax law which Is really a penalty lax law. I get the invoices from my agents In Baton Rouge, New Orleans and in Illinois. These .show shipments billed lo Mississippi bootleggers. I Sdrt 33 1-3 per cent, lo thc wholesale price of the liquor and demand payment of thc ten per cent tax authorised by the slate. Ot course, thc whole situation/is inconsistent. "Anybody who says prohibition works in Mississippi Is either blind or an ignoramus." Enforcement in "dry" Arkansas is a spotty picture of everything from reasonably conscientious efforts on the part of a few counties all the \vay to open saloons n .Garland, Iloone and Ciaighcad counties. ncccntl.v. the Slate Revenue Department was invited to check on ,hc barrooms in Jonesboro. "We wont Inlo Jonesboro, found .he/saloons, but were unable to obtain search warrants from either th c city or tbc county. We lad to drop the whole business," Mr. Cook said. Arkansas' efforts at "dry" enforcement remarkably parallel those of Mississippi. We have some 300 Fexlerally-lfccnsed bootleggers in our dry counties. Mississippi has a lolal of 1,400. Arkansas bootlcg- :ers seem So operate chiefly from taxis, hamburger stands and third- rate holds while their brethren In the Magnolia State deal openly from the shelves of their stores. A cursory check of the wide- open whiskey stores of Mississippi reveals that thc OPA has never been heard of these and consequently a fifth o( good grade liquor costs .slightly over $10. ThH is over twice thc OPA celling enforced in Arkansas' licensed controlled stores. Likewise, at home here, OPA ceilings are unenforceable In Arkansas' 27 counties that arc dry for liquor.

In Hollywood BY F.RSKINK JOHNSON NEA Staff C<irr<-S!K.nd>'nt HOLLYWOOD, April 25. (NEA1 — Sterling Haydcn, the tall, blond .senfnrlng man who became a star in two movies with Absolutely no previous acting experience, married his co-stnr, Madeleine Carroll, and llien n-cnl back to the sea because he "lulled" pictures, is back in Hollywood with a new outlook Jlfc nnd a new "c" in his bill without Ills bride. You've read how they were divorced In Reno on Hayden's way back to Hollywood after he had served in the merchant marine, and as a captain In the Marine Corps, using the mime of John Hamilton because he didn't want a Hollywood career mixed up with his righting activities. But the new "e" in his name was a new one on this department "I!" TO "I" AND BACK When Producer Edward H. Griffith discovered him in 1010 in Boston, between sailing schedules, his name was Sterling Hayden. When Paramount signed him to n film contract, Griffith suggested changing the spelling to "Stirling," which is the way it later appeared on the screen. A few months ago, when Paramount re-signed him in New York, the agents drawing up the contract asked: ';what shall it he -an 'c' or an '!'?" "Make It an 'e'" Sterling said. So that's the way it will be in the future. "I also thought of having a clause In the contract that Paramount would provide me with a Place to live," Hayden chuckled. "I had heard about the housing .shordigc. mil ncrl Allcnljei'i?, my iiBdH, (alked me oul of it. I'm lii'tllng more money than I did before." As H Is. Haydcn Is living in a hoiLse Paramount bought for out- of-town visfjors -who can't find) hold rooms. Then he'll probably buy a boat and live on It between pictures, at Balboa Hay. Haydcn says he doesn't hale the movies anymore. "When 1 was bore before I saw a chance to make a lot of money quick, buy a big schooner, and spend the rest of my life sailing," he lold us. "The wur changed my mind. You can't jasl run away from everything." ,\ KK.M, SAILOR We're nol kidding wben we refer to Haydcn as a seafaring man. I and He's sailed ships all his life, eve: 1 men si/ice lie was a kid living in Hie Maine, seacoast lown of Boolhbay HajbofV He was navigator aboard HIG (nincd Gloucester schooner Gcr- I triicic L. Thcbaud when It raced Hie Blucnosc in the International J'ishmnan's Race. As master of Die schooner Yankee, he cruised mound the world. Paramount Rave him n 128-foot .schooner, which he sold just before the war, as a bonus for his walk in "Bahama Passage," his film before Roing back to sea. He made his film debut In "Virginia." Naturally, Hollywood's fancy yachts give him a chuckle. He refers to them as ".seven-deckers with straw bottoms." Hollywood hasn't changed much .since he went away, he says. "The girls arc Just as beautiful. They're tile most beautiful girls in 'the world." Ills war record is really .something—top-secret OSS dntj—run- ning (he German blockade off the Dalmatian coast and working with British and American groups, getting ammunition and supplies lo tb c Tito forces in Yugoslavia. lUilruarl l>iap«r Station CINCINNATI, o,, (U.P.)—A boon for inlanl travelers has been set up in Cincltitiull's Union Terminal.
