iY, NOVKMiiKR 24,'l'JM House Divided Against Laney Some Representatives Reported Resentful Over House Speaker By PAT WALSH .United i-ress Staff Correspondent LITTLE .ROCK, Nov. 24.> (UP)— With the date of Ills inauguration less than two months away Gover- nor.elec.t- Ben Laney, according to rumors; 1ms already stirred "up some opposition to his administration In flic House of Representatives. Tlic base of this opposition comes from his selection of Horace North- cult, Fulton county, as Speaker and that official's manner in filling committee memberships by' ignoring members who.have served from two to thfee terms for olti timers wh have been in the lower leglslattv body for eight or more years.

UUUTON HEATH NKA Staff Correspondent By this time, unless you are as completely disinterested as Vice President-Elect' Harry Truman, who doesn't smoke—you must have read tens of thousands of words about the clgnret shortage. You know about It, don't you? . That's' fine, because after canvassing just about everybody . who ought to know why' tobacconists' clgarel bins nre empty, I'm in n daze, n dither, and something of a dudgeon.''" The War Poods Administration snys tlmt more cignrcls nre being manufactured this year than ever before-^hnlf again' as ninny ns In 1S11 nml 20 billion 'clgnrcts more than last year; Lend-lease and export trade are relatively negligible. They account for less than one pack for each of us for the entire year. Our soldiers sailors, marines and other uniformed men overseas arc Betting aliriosl three and a half billion packs this year, which is equivalent to about 26 packs for-each American. ' Nevertheless, after this, the WFA' says that more dgarets will be nvall- "'*'" for' civilian Americans this . than ever before except-In 1943, niid more than nine-tenths as many as in that record-smokinV year. 77 PACKS I'EU IN 1941 : In 1941 nn average of 11 packs of cigarets was available for every -American. We got along fine. \Ve could step into any corner cigar or Jrug store and buy all we wanted. Iii 1314, if government figures are correct, the available packs will total more than 91 per person—91 packs fi- every man, woman and able venr Golds, Chesterfields and.Pall Mnlls. Meanwhile the smaller mtmutaclur- crs, who had a lol of excess capacity uinised when llic shortage developed, have stopped up production and virtually all of.lhclr increased output Is kept at' home for civilians. . ' ' • So the WPA's overall figurc-of 02 per cent as m'any civilian clgnrets tills year ns last Includes the nn- ktiown bi'nhds-the brands you either leave on the dealer's counter or Wiy occasionally mtlic-f' (linn KO smokeless. .'. '•; ' • "'''., o f '' I ho bran i s you' want 1 ': . . ar'brands, there still h'rffL,,- poscd to be seven packs,' for you for every carton you usett'last'year. Arc you getting them? If yon arc, don't tell-inc. I'm-'miserable enough as It is. : . ling infant who Isn't supposed 16 be an a clgnret diet yet. One would -imagine, therefore that it should be a simple matter lo walk into almost any store and •?et at least one pack a day of Luck- ies. Old Golds, Camels, Chesterfields or Pall Malls. . But if you -smoke, or even if you try to keep a small- assortment on hand to suit the varying tastes of your guests, you;don't-have-to be told Hint you can't buy nine packs of Luckies-or Canieis or Old Golds or Chesterflelds^this year 1 for every carton you bought in 1943. • One of the biggest manufacturers is giving- distributors- seven packs this year for every carton the distributor handled in • 1943.: That is well under the nine packs that WFA figures would suggest but there is an explanation: OVERSEAS FIGURES ARE SECRET ' Government figures on clgarets sent overseas to our fighting men are a closely guarded secret Manufacturer figures on production, sales and government purchases are equally secret. But it is understood that the Army, the'Navy and the "ed Cross ship the different brtiVids overseas, in the same proportion that the brands were smoked" at home. -This means that.almost all'.the service men's cigarets are coming out of our Luckies, Camels, Old ill-.: a; large political machine anil force hundreds of establishments now engaged in that line of business into other channels.- The Houss members suggesting tbc.state operated retail stores measure pointed to the success of'-other states in such operations and the profits obtained being put into 'the genera! revenue fund. Despite pleas 'of war plants for more manpower, there are still some men in Arkansas who want statehouse jobs, as was shown midweek when Governor-elect Ben Laney took 20 minutes to elbow his way from the fronlvdobr of the •Marion hotel' to, a; private dining room on the second floor where he. attended a meeting of the executive board of the Arkansas Livestock Association. Forecasters who said the new 'governor would have trouble ' fillihE jobs at the statchouse must have teen wroni?,- as one observer put it after watching Laney take a few steps at a time and always being stopped by n job h.unter-or a legislator who wanted to discuss patronage in his own county -.The usual duck dinner for mem- :ei-s of the Senate will be held this year; here in Little Rock on Sunday December nth, we ll informed sour- es disclosed this week.
