Their overwhelming majority surged through the clanking voting machines despite Uic cries of protest from ministerial organisation?, nnd from country cousins in the state . legislature. The total vote yesterday was 50,- B83 in favor of legalized bookies and 7.334 against. Officially, the election meant nothini:. Thb decisive voice remained in the state legislature. But young Mayor Morrison hRfl called the referendum to show that tlic people backed him In his dc- sir c to channel gambling's scarlet ttciiltli into municipal coffers. Ana today he termed the results "giat- fying." The some 6.0.000 persons x who tinned out at the l>olls for the traw vote represented onc-tlilrd of the registered voters .in the city. But In many tiuartcrs, the total which appeared was surprising. Morrison lilmself predicted thai 55,000 would vote.

Sales Sensation of the Automotive Industry Celebrates ^ "AUTOMOTIVE'* GOLDEN JUBILEE" Buick swings into the automotive industry's Golden Jubilee celebration with the greatest expansion and modernization program in it's 43-year history. Goal of the new program is to provide plant facilities for production of upwards of 550,000 Buick passenger cars annually. The biggest consumer demand for Buick automobiles in history prompted the expansion program which is designed to boost production nearly 50 per cent over the 378,000 automobiles produced duiing the 1941 model year, peak pre-war volume year. David Buick, pioneer plumber and inventor, of Detroit, organized the company in 1903 in Flint, and during the year he produced sixteen cars. From that time, he continued to increase steadily and Buick gained momentum rapidly. Later, with much public Skepticism about automobiles, William C. Durant, the boy wonder of Flint, was chosen to head the company, and from that day on, Buick was on the way up. Durant, in 1908, organized General Motors with a capital stock of $2,000 which was increased to $60,000,000 in less than a year. Since "1938, Buick cars have out-sold all but the three lowest priced makes, maintaining fourth place in volume in the industry. Full particulars of Buick automobiles are available at your Buick Dealer. Langston-Wroten Co. Phone 55,'l Sales — BUICK — Service Walntil at Broadway, Hl.vlhcvillc, Ark.
