W>>—It has been a busy six months Sidney ». McMath wu inaugurated governor ol Arkansas list Jan. But the former Garland County prosecutor knows "a lot than I did a lew month* ago." And he has round the job ol being «rnor "li tough, but it has lots of compensations." McMath, whose career Includes* — a distinguished record as a U. S. Marine offices In World War II, began his second six months as governor last Saturday. Tomorrow, Flag Day, he will observe his 37th birthday anniversary. ' In a combined birthday and semi-anniversary interview, told th« Associated Press that "people ar« generally cooperative" with their governor, and that "a majority of people, regardless of how they feel personally, are Interested In a constructive administration." Critical of Minorltlei However, he added, "you always have a small minority group that endeavors to hamstring everything." He mentioned specifically "sponsors" of the cash fund suit, Income tax suit and rumored litigation over the legality of the revenue stabilization act. (The Arkansas Supreme Court last week ruled in'iavor of the state In the Income tax suit.) (McMath was critical of these persons, contending they "have no regard for how the outcome may effect the state as a whole." The handsome, dark-haired governor says the most unpleasant task of being governor Is the patronage . problem —"especially when you must decide between friend. 1 for a job." ^ .He sees "one of the principal jobs of the governor" as selling the state. "This Is particularly true of Arkansas because of the adverse publicity we have received." "I will do all I can to present the state and Its advantages in the best possible, light." Taking cognizance of recent criticism for leaving Ihe state, the governor said "I have made three trips. One was my vacation and I took advantage of it to talk to the Texas Legislature and Junior Chamber of Commerce to sell Arkansas.. "I went to Jacksonville, Fla.. to appear at a flood control hearing and ' aitend . the President's safetj conference. "Arkansas should participate In these conferences where othe st»te are represented and the pur POM it to solve inter and intra state problems. Plan* Trip T« Colorado "I plan to attend the governor' conference In Colorado." McMath also said he plans t "try to spend as much time out i: the state a* possible. 1 * "You don't get the true pictur sitting here at this desk. It's par of the Job. but you see people wit personal desires and personal prob lems." The state's biggest problem «sld from roads Is that of "getting lo cal communities to move out an axiiume the responsibility of solv Ing their own problems Insofar poMible," in the governor's opin ton. This is particularly true, he sal In regard to the school problem which U tied in with e-,ual!zatlo and property a-ssessments. "If we can get the property as aeasments fal.r it will go a Ion way toward solving the fiscal prob lem. Until that is done, we canno provide the primary and secom ary schools that are needed." Th« governor believes he ha. been "fortunate In getting people j to take key positions who are capable and motivated by a desire to do a public service." "It is impossible for the governor of the state to attend to everything himself," he said. "Therefore, his administration is only as good as the department heads who execute his program." McMath, who previously squelched rumors of other plans by saying he wants to serve a second term "If the ptople will elect me," declared: "It 1* my desire and Intention to serve In this Job until I have carried out my program. In other words, I plan to serve here four years." Eldest Airline Sets Endurance Mark With 30 Airborne Years in the Black since 11. more gov- Hj ROBERT I,. BKAKD NEA Staff Correspondent THE HAGUE — (NEA) — The •orld's oldest «lr lines hopes to cut big birthday caVe, with iwect rotting, this summer or fall, Now that the Netherlands lov- rnment and the Republic of Indonesia have got together, KLM, the Hoy»l Dutch Air Lines) hopes nst before the end ol the year It an reopen its 8500-mile Amsterdam to Batavta run. and link up Europe and the Americas with Its 5.000-mile inter-Island .network. That would add greatly to the present 75.000 miles of routes that prawl over most of the civilized world. On the basis of past ex- wrlence, it would add something like SO per cent to KLM'« Income. Both of these prospects are very pleasing Lo Dr. Albert Pleaman. As a young Netherlands air force lieutenant, he founded KLM in 19U with one DeHavllland open plane that bore two leather-clad passengeis on a chill three-hour trip between Amsterdam and London. In >pH« of what the war did to the Netherlands and to it< far eastern possessions— and In spite of the Indonesian service suspension forced by the Republic's rebellion — Di 1 , Plesmmi has kept his world-wide air lines operating In the black, without any of the subsidies which most governments jive to their competing »)ntem*. The Dutch government owns a bit chunk of KLM itock, but its relationship U only that of a heavy stockholder. Dr. Plesman and his associates nave built the little one-plane line Into one of the Big Foui In Mie International field. Experts rate it with Pan American, British Overseas and Air Prance in route mileage and business done. The flr.t of this year, KVM started a thrlce-a-week service to Batavla by way of Khartoum and Marltus Island that Involves the longest over-water hop any air line ever scheduled—a IS-hour flight of almost 3500 miles over the Indian Ocean. This Is only a stop gap, to be replaced by regular service through Cairo, Karachi, Calcutta and Singapore. Nobody In the Royal Dutch of- ft'.es here is willing to offer i formula for running an air llni with black .Ink in thcae day*. When they discuss the method. It U a >tory ot a bit here, a bit there —an application to air travel of the prudence and skill that for generations made the tiny Netherlands a maritime power, and built up a far-flung colonial empire Some observers say the KLM approach resembles that by which Eddie Rlckenbacker has built up Eastern Airlines In the U. 8. field. At the end of IMS, KLM had only 1(00 employes. The Indies, from which a third of Income should come, were wholly disorganized after Japanese occupation and by the independence movement. Holland was in bad shape at home. Schlphol Airport, in 193» one of the Continent's finest, had been utterly destroyed by the Germans. Today, the line has some 12,500 employes. It Is operating 75,000 mllea ot rouUw among Europe,! North and South American, Africa and the Par East. Last year It carried about 400,000 passengers, Us planes flew 22 million miles, and Its cargo business was more than tripled lince the war. Schlphol Airport , a g al n Is among Europe's finest, handling more than 100 flights a day for KLM and a dozen foreign lines. Dr. Plesman's pre-war aircraft have been replaced to a considerable extent with the best products of American factories. He was among the first to get Constellations. As soon as Douglas' new DC-6 was available he took seven of them for the South American and South African services. Beheading was formerly considered an honorable form ot evecu- tion.
