The opinions or jjoints of view presented don't have to be ours. Correspondents may argue for anj- i3iiiig from enforcement of the Sunday blue laws to establishment of a Marxian state, just so long as they use reasonably polite language and don't put us in ;eopardy of prosecution for libel.

That sounds a bit funny today, Perhaps, but the record of fatal ond near fatal accidents on that road for the past year seems to lurnlsh reason for belief thai special restrictions arc needed. I have not at hand a record of those accidents, but as readers of this paper will recall, they have been numerous, one reason is that the paving Is only is f cct . wWc in _ stead of 18 or 20 that Is usual on Important highways. Another reason, possibly, is that the shoulders have not been kept In uniformly good condition. Drivers on this road should realize tlic danger to themselves and others nnd exercise more than Usual care. Pedestriaas should keep off the pavement so far as possible, and should be alert to control In the board origin- puointed by the council but to be self-perpetuating thereafter of the police and fire departments'.

Plinrr. Icvcc Ixianl engineer, lolil tlie Courier News by telephone from West Memphis this morning. The additional loan, which will bring the levee district's debt to $6.122.000. will involve no increase In the levee district tax rate, the Courier News was (old by W. O. Byler, secretary-treasurer of the levee board, who based his slule- nient upon estimated reductions In maintenance expense and in tn>: delinquencies. Will Double Levee's Ktrrgth The loan agreement, approved by the levee hoard yesterday, was drawn by the PWA and its final ratification by Hie authorities at Washington is assured. The bonds- will bo issued and the money paid over to the district, as needed during the next. 12 or 18 months for the purchase of right of way and other expense incident, to trie flood control woik. There is a good possibility thai a portion of the $552,000 may be made an outright grant, thus reducing the amount of the new Indebtedness by per-' haps as much as 30 per cent. United States engineers and private contractors are now employing several thousand men on levee construction work In the St. Francis Levee district, bringing the levees up to Jtidwhi plan grade and section, relocating them In some instances, and virtually doubling the strength of the levfc system which protects nearly 2,000,000 acres of land in seven northeast Arkansas counties from Mississippi river Hoods. The new loan will enable the district to provide rights of way and meet other expenses incidental to the completion of this work. Actnnl cost of levee construction Is paid by the federal government. Tax Suit Is Pending The financial condition of the istrlct lias suffered in recent ears. Mr. Byler said, because of e refusal of railroads to pay their axes. An appeal by the levee oard from a decision of Federal udge John E. Martincaii. holding merits assessed against railroads y the district to be unreasonably igh, will be heard by the United talcs circuit court of appeals at t. Paul, May n. if the district •ins it will be in position to col- en about $375.000 In back taxes rom the railroads. If it loses rail- oad levee taxes will be reduced.
