The Adklns measure was written by Charles T. Coleman, Little Rock lawyer and co-author of the 1934 refunding act. The new bill was approved in Its final form by J. F. Loughborough of Little Rock, David M. Wood of the New York law firm of Thompson. Wood & Hoffman nnd a lawyer representing interests holding road improvement district bonds. In general, the Adklns plan bears little resemblance to Governor Bailey's refunding measure which was rejected by the voters at the recent general election. The Adkins program would amend part of Act 11 of 1934, but the 1934 measure would form the foundation upon which the new plan would be built.

The Adkins program provides such a refunding but also makes provision for a "peacemeal" refund- Ing that could extend over a period of months or years. Mr. Coleman explained the principal objectives of this feature would be to pare down maturities of "hump years," such as 1944 and 1949 in which, under certain conditions, the state might be faced with default. "If peacemeal refunding is resorted to." Mr. Coleman said, "the new bonds will take the place of the present bonds redeemed with their proceeds just as-if the new bonds had been originally issued under Act 11 of 1934.
