MALOY I'nikil lYcss .Slafl' Correspondent. LITTLE ROCK, Ark., (UP) — Plantation owners deal honestly with tliclr sharecroppers atfd tenants in 95 per cent ot l[ie cases, Harry Malcom, deputy labor commissioner, believes. "Most 'of tlie landowners want lo bo fair with their tenants," Miilcom £ii!rt, " A lot of them are just victims of a system Uial lias been growing in the South 'aver since the Civil War." The "system" lo which lie referred i.s the commissary business through which shiu'ecropricrs buy supplies on credit until croiw lire made. Records collected by the labor department show, Malcojt) Eiild, it lia.« been the general practice to charge excessive prices on commodities then add !iO lo 25 per cent Interest as u cany- ing charge. Conmiisinrics Boost Trices He drew from his flics the case of » Pnlnski county plantation owner who had charged Ictianls an average of double Uic cosl price of supplies sold (hem, then added 25 per cent Interest. When (lie labor department interceded the owned told Malcom in no uncertain words it was none.of the state's business how lie ran h!s farm. Thru Ilicrc .wiis a case of a Lincoln ant] Jefferson county owner whose cooks Malcom invcsll- Kiilcd last J-CHI-. An average of 100 per cent profit on supplies was shown by Invoices iuit] Hi; ;;utec- i|i;rn|. rhiirpc lo lemnils. Koine of Ihc items which Malcom noted in u cost and credit comparison were: Forty-eight pound sacks of flour cosl $I.GO and placed on tenants books'at, $2.50; 21 pounds of corn weal coist 10 wills and re-sold at 10 mils: meat cost S'i cents a pound and sold at 15 cents; four pounds of lard cost 26 cents and charged off at 60 cents; potatoes bought, at 2'i cents a pound and pold ui fi cents; vinegar bought ul. 1!) cents and charged lo leu- :inls at 40 cents; kerosene bought ill 0 cents a .pallon and sold at 20 cents; plow [hies (driving hues for , leaius) bought at 25 cents and sold; at. GO cents. i Those; two cases' were ainons illie 'flvpj.perrccnt -.of ^iiireaK)iiable plantation owners, • llic deputy ia- lior commissioner said. There are any number of owners who arc anxious lo treat their slvarcciop- pci'6 right, once llicy arc set on ihu rigliL course. C'uls Inlcrcsl IJillr Take the JcfTcrson county case of n Tennessee college graduate who bought n plantation. Seventeen of Ills lenants complained he charged them 20 per ccnl on Ilicir commissary fills. Malcom investigated. Tile owner readily admitlcd charging HID an per ccnl, .saying it hud breii his understanding Hint .such was customary. Malcom advised Uial ID per ccnl was Ihc maximum lepil interest charge. Whereupon llic ov.'iicr called in his tenants, refunded half of the Inlcrcsl money i'lid thanked Malcom for advising him. All the sharccr»p]>ers (in • thai planlalion had Ihcir bills paid and some money, saved, Malcom observed. Anolhcr Jcllcrson counly plan- lalion owner contracted ..with his tciiiinls to pay Ihcm so much per day for tticir labor instead of sharing the crops. Most of the tenants were reported as pleased willi tho new .system that ljuvc them money the year round. Then there arc cases where yen- i (runs landowners have been abused \ by lenanls. The owners have ad- I vanccd money to sluirccroppcr.'; lo make crops then .had them go away, leaving their crops and uilhoiil repaying their loam. I''rom years of workiim with Ihc i hiirccropncns Malcnin lias tcani- "i. )in .said, that, flf> per mil of the landowners dcul honestly.

II. C, HALSELL, Prop, U'VE won Repeal! You've J, voted to bring back the days of wise temperance and truly gracious living. Andsr>—oursihcerest congratulations! With the same ballots that brought Repeal, you have bring back to your State two of the finest .whiskies America has ever known -~Four Roses and Paul Jones. Many -of you will welcome these v/hiskies • Ijack as old friends from ' • pre-Prohibition day5. BothFourRosEs and Paul • Jones are traditionaljy gtcat whiskies. In 1865 Colonel Paul Jones mixed • his first mash, fired his first still, and brought forth the grand whiskey that has borne his name ever since. It was this same Paul Jones who gave Four Roses its glowing name. For when, some . years after the war, a descendant of the Colonel decided to. bring forth another fine brand, he remembered a story '. . .how, in .the years before the war-clouds gathered, alovely lady hadsignified her acceptance of the Colonel's courtship by wearing to a cotillion » corsage of four red roses, \. Still true to a great tradition Today, Four Roses and Paul Jones »re still made by'the direct'descen- dants of the original Paul Jones. And they are made in the same slow, cateful way—made die only way truly great whiskey has ever been produced—by the costly old- fashioned method. •• Into these two fine whiskies goes only -the choicest of selected grain.' 1 Into them goes that extra richness' that conies' from Southern ' limestone water. And into them goes all the skin that; Frankfort Arias' gathered through four generations pf experience.
