AN OPEN LETTER TO THE CITIZENS OF MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS DEAR CITIZEN: I submit these facts not only to the citizens of Mississippi County, but to all those people who believe in right. If (he above list is a sample of what men and women of this County fought and died for then they shall have died in vain. Was it just a coincidence these names for which Poll Tax receipts were issued appear in perfect numerical order and almost in perfect alphabetical order? This list of names with (he numbers, appear also in the "Certified List of Qualified Voters" for Mississippi County showing them from the "Armorcl District." Those issued in the Wilson District, as a whole and although too lengthy to publish here will bear a remarkable similarity as to alphabetical and numerical order. Supervision of County records come under the jurisdiction of your County Judge and by the exercise of due diligence these disgraceful facts can be averted. It never should have happened and only those drunk with power will condone such acts. I therefore call these facts to the attention of your County Judge to explain to the citizens of this County why this has been allowed to exist. The good citizens of this county have had enough of such ilk and through their Tax Payers Associations, which they have been forced to form for protection, they are finding out the wherefore nnd why for the inequitable distribution of their tax money. Looking over this list of names as they appear gives STRONG evidence and will create suspicion in any reasonable person's mind. I realize that the great majority of those whose names appear had nothing what so ever to do with the bringing about of this sordid situation which blights our public records. Millions of us spent the best years we had in World War I and II, to suppress those who had no respect for a free man's right. And we intend to see that those who gave their lives for that American Principle of RIGHT did not die in vain. An honest American election by free and God-fearing citizens is all that stands between the people and those wh6 would deny them the right lo vote as they see fit, freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Are the citizens of this county going to tolerate this? Yours truly, i "'-.'-. GENE E.
