FROM CARL I1A1LKY ', Governor Futrell, in characteristic Futrell fashion (lodges ^the real issues In his radio tirades J! i nphilns lhal I have .criticized his administration bill he does not attempt to justify the policies and practices I crilicize. Instead lie proceeds to detail some'things' of which lie need not be ashamed—sue;, as lhe refunding of lhe h!»h- way (iebl .(which almost, fell through, ns. you Vlil recall because of his aversion to assuming responsibility for forcing .legislative action). • This much can be said to the governor's credit At no point ;dld he say anything in praise; tf his puppet-candidate. ^McDonald. Wlieh next thc governor speaks, let hlni answer "these questions: Uo you approve the campaign fund assessments against the statehouse employes. for the beiii'tll of your administration candidate? How do you Justify your doublecross of Ashley in order to adopt McDonald? Is it not true lhat you more than once said lhat you could never line up with McDonald because of your personal knowledge of his lack of qualifications? Is II not true that you lold your bank commissioner lhat. yon were going to get Cook into Hie race-for governor to try to reduce my majority in Pul.islcl county? Oo you favor thc judiciary meddling in political campaigns? How many persons on the stale payroll are related to yon, by blood or marriage? Haye you not made the positive statement that you are opposed to old age pensions? Have yon not openly opposed free education for children beyond thc eighth grade? II a vacancy should occur in the supreme court would you want thc next governor to appoint you In till it? .n t Mr. Fulrcll infers thai I opposnl the Refunding Pro- eruin, that I allcmplctl lo destroy its beiielHs, lhal, as governor, I will discontinue anil disrupt the whole program. Hfc- FAILCU DKLIIIKKATELY to say that I have supported the whole plan, lhat I am a mcmbtr of Hir Kcfundinr Board. As governor I will not interfere with lhe program, bul will rto .ill in my power to further »s (oulinuallon. Mr. Futrell, by inucndo, would leave the Impression «•"" his radio audiences that I am the candidate of a wrecking crcw " that Was running the stale's business before 1933. ' . . Only , lly respect for the position he occupies delers me from branding that a '. contemptible lie. Tin- people haven't forgotten that, the biggest part of uiiat | 1C cni] 5 the old "wrecking crew" was Inherited by lum when lie was nominated In 1932 as the "administration candidate.". . , • . •.'.'• , / Since that time, thc outstanding men and women who supported him have for the most part been edged out «y political- manipulators, who now try lo control the governor .and keep him at home and away from his of- r .I*' c hc Illl8ht lear " what '»s constituents actually think. They hide him out and keep the truth away from him, "ml the,, at thc eleventh hour, they trot him forth to ixrale me. In the vain hope lhat perhaps lhe presllge ot his ollicc may save Ihem from the political oblivion that awaits ihcm after next Tuesday CIVIL SERVICE For State Employes My first act, after I become the Democratic nominee for Governor, will be to invite representative men and woman in various walks ot life to join with me in a thorough study of civil service m other states. This will be accomplished without expense to tlie taxpayers, and the results will'be laid before the public and placed in the hands of every member of the next legislature before it convenes in January. We know already what the protection of civil service means to federal employes 'and to the public which they serve. We have seen from afar its benefits .in oilier .states. There is no reason why we should not adopt it in Arkansas. ., ' , • . , , .. The Need Demonstrated The sordid spectacle that ha.s been set before us in this political campaign by bosses' forcing both efficient and in- efticicul employes to contribute a part 'of their earnings lo perpetuate a political regime emphasizes the desirability of having a merit system as the basis for employment of appointive oftictals lo conduct (he state's business. Prevent Repetition To prevent a repetition of what we have witnessed in this campaign and to make political service more attractive to competent and honorable men and women, 1 advocate the enactment ol a civil service law that will be in accordance'with the public's demand and that will be administered by a commission composed ol men and women who do not have the politician's viewpoint but who understand the objectives of govtvnment. None can object to civil service except those who want to maintain or build up a machine such as that which rules over the statehouse today and exacts assessments from helpless employes. More Service For Tax Dollars Too many men and women qualified by training and ability for ubhc service shun it because of thc uncertainties of political 11 e. I am referring to those who care nolhiiu/ about political f ±"^"!? Ol " catldidnlcs but who would seek a career in public senicc if they could be sure of protection from political bosses. A u\ i service law will provide that protection. When employes f, , ?, mm ? tl nm1 nlcrit alolle - wi " lj e Hie basis of determin- i g whether they shall be on thc public payrolls, then you, as i..\j>.i.vm, are going to find slatehouse offices giving you ser- MCL 01 a higher type and at less cost than ever before. i.ct me emphasize that I have no desire or intention of at- icninnnjr lo influence the legislature in lhe selection of the Civil sen ice Commission. Hut, backed by the mandate which' your mcs Incsilay will give, I shall use all (he powers at Jhy com- J"!>n ( | lo bring about cnactmcnf of a civil service' fax- that will lorevcr be a barrier to the evil (hat not even Governor Futrell nor his puppet, McDonald, attempt to defend-rthe coercing of sink' employes (o contribute lo a political campaign, even be- lore u ls delermincd for which candidate (he administration in power intends to try lo buy lhe office. Sifjncd CARL E. BAILEY. Elect CARL BAILEY our GOVERNOR
