The soldier's picture is carried on most of the County's trucks and cars, on a background of purple. La Petite Roche — Little Rock, the state capital — was named by the French .explorer, De la Harpc, in 1722. Besides boasting a fully restored territorial capitol, the "old stntehouse" and one, of the most beautiful capitol buildings in the nation, Pulaski County is the State's industrial leader, with scores of new indus- tries being formed or transplanted every year. Too, more than half of Pulasld County is being farmed — cotton being the principal crop. And in the hub of Arkansas, the United States Brewers Foundation through its self regulation program work* to maintain clean, wholesome food stores, cafes and taverns for the sale of beer and ale.
