He served 1 mi r yen rs ns I )e pn Ly Pro-icon t i n ? attorney, four yeavs as Prosecuting Attorney of Piibski County, U'o years as Attorney General. With ten years in "politics." be ncnv desires the Governor's chair as a stepping stone to the U. S, Senate. THE RECORD As Prosecuting Attorney of- Pu- : laski -(County, he .obtained 1.D4H indictments, many or which were njrainiil Ihc public officuls who H • arc now supporting him, but lor ^B unknown (?>- reasons he nolle Mkprossed or quashed 730 of Ihera • T //:dictmcnLs lie himself drew. In • other words, nearly 50% were lost • As Attorney General, a race he • won by atlackinsc the "special attorney record" of his predecessor and pledging he would NOT employ outside counsel iiut • would actually reduce the personnel of llic office, Mr Bailey paid S1I.- 413.88 In special attorney fees in the short year nnd one-half he has been in office. Of this amount,, more thnn S7.300.00 went to Soutii Arkansas attorneys. The remaining portion of the SI 1,612.21 in special attorney fees wns participated in by Murray O. Reed ami Lawrence Auten. his former deputies. In addition a large case is now pending where out-of-state attorneys have been retained. Why? QUALIFICATIONS- Carl Dailey is bcins; actively supported by Lawrence E. Wilson avu\ Charles S. Gnrrctt. who were indicted by Carl. Bailey . . . the Indictments being nolle pressed by Carl Bailey; Dwight Blachwood I nnd C R. Christian, prominent In Slate Highway investigations, whose indictments by Carl Bailey were nolle rossed by Ills former chief deputy; Claude Duly, against \vhoin the stale's $5,000 judgment Mr. Bailey has not endeavored to collect. addition Mr. Bailey's indict- 'uit of B. Homer Heard in the roofing fcandal involv- f ins overpayment by Ed McDonald iii the sum of $10.000.00 was demurred on technical grounds, with no further action by Mr. Bailey. Mr. Bailey discreetly refrains from attacking Mr. McDonald! Wliy? Taxpayers see in I he Bailey camp another ''administration" comprised of a former highway commis- r.foner, t\vo lieutenant governors, an assistant attorney neueral and a military department head, nil of them actively "serving'' tho people while the ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-THREE MILLION DOLLAR DEBT was being stacked agninst the state.

In other words, he has spent most of his adult life as a politician. He has received Hie "administration support" which automatically makes him eligible • or the fund raised by assessing state employes. THE RECORD After serving ns Sheriff and Collector of Grant county, with part- time work as local secretary and collector .for the Woodman Lodge, Mr. McDonald looked around for more worlds to conquer nnd came to the State Capital, where lie served two years ns deputy secretary of slate, later filling the office of secretary for three tenm. Mr. McDonald's official record involves the certification of vouchers amounting to JIC.SOO.UO in favor of B. H. Heard for certain repairs to the roof of the Statt Cnpitot building. It is significant Hint Mr. Heard was indicted for "unlawfully receiving public funds" after Mr. McDonald had certified as to the correctness of the vouchers.. It is true that Mr. McDonald increased the expenditures 1n his office by nearly .$24,000.00 in the year 1934-35 over the previous year, but the voters must remember that these were depression years when everybody needed more money. According to the state comptroller's audit, expenditures for soap and' disinfectants purchased by Mr. McDonald practically doubled during the three- year period ending June 30, 1935 (Audit of year Just closed is not completed). But "cleanliness Is next to Godliness," so why worn- about economy? QUALIFICATIONS Mr. McDonald's chief qualification for the office he seeks lie^ In the fact that he has been on the public payrolls for 18 consecutive years and that he at least has found favor with the "Administration" (nt least parts' of it) after this favor had been tried out on other candidates, without success. But the belated, though genuine Administration support was probably due to the fact that Mr. McDonald had been hiding his political light under a bushel these past 18 years. ' Along with the official support of the present powers that be Mr McDonald will also' have access to the fund collected from slate employes long before any candidate had been officially tagged ns "it." -. • but the people say ,i, c ARKANSAS ON GUARD!
