Wi—Ben4 Laney and Sid McMath yesterday afternoon repeated some ot the things they've been saying a./J/jt each other for the past several W i. e Lake Chicot Names Home Town Girls difference this lime was that both were present, and each heard at first hand what Ills opponent for the Arkansas governorship had to say. Little of what was said was complimentary, although former governor Laney did concede that Governor McMath is a "nice fellow." That was about as far as any "worthy opponent" attitude went. The former governor and the incumbent—each seeking another term as the state's chief' executive via the Democratic nomination- met here at a July Fourth program dedicating a $612,000 Black River highway bridge, which was constructed during Laney's administration. Laney Speaks Firit Laney was (irst on the program. He started off recounting accomplishments of his administration in highway construction, but before long switched to an attack on Mc- Mnth's administration. As Laney saw McMath approach the speaker's stand the former governor told the crowd—estimated at 4,000-v'I like this boy (McMath). He's a nice fellow. I have nothing against him personally. But I just djjjri- 1 agree with him." ' ^pmey thAi invited McMath- to explain the reasons for the McMath-sponsored changes in the Ijaney-instigated revenue. stabilization law; for a decrease In the state's surplus since Laney left office two years ago and for what he termed McMath's "two-by-four highways—two miles here and four miles there.** White-Striped Roads He declared one audience .had told him "all they got out or^J7,- 000,000 In (McMath - sponsored) highway bonds was a while stripe down the middle of the road." Also, he demanded to know why McMath hadn't kept his 1948 campaign promises—Including one to raise teachers' salaries. McMath in his turn said he couldn't "criticize the roads that Ben Laney built because he didn't build any.** "Right here in Lawrence County," he asserted "I've built more roads In 18 months than Ben Laney did In four years."* The state's surplus hasn't decreased, It's Increased, the governor declared. • $5,000,000 In Fund* "We have' right now $5,000,000 more of operating (unds and $6,000,000 more of reserve funds than when I took office. 1 ' '.McMath said the revenue stabll- fcfejon law w r as changed by the Tfff_ legislature" to^glve cities and counties' more 'turnback tundst Increase welfare payments and provide more school funds. Teachers' salaries, he said, have been increased by about $100 a year—and'the teachers didn't have to make "a drive on the governor's office like they did when Ben Laney was governor.**' True. McMath said, he hadn't been able to bring welfare payments to the national level as he had hoped, but that's because we put 20.000 (oiks back on the rolls who'd been turned out by Governor Laney." old Age assistance payments have been increased (rom f>17 & month in 1918 to $28 a month now and are going to be increased more McMath declared. Republican Charge McMath charged that In 1948 Laney "went up and down the West Coast, predicting that the Republicans would carry Arkansas "in the Presidential race.)" "That was a few weeks after he tried and failed to throw Arkansas to the Republican Party at the Democratic state convention in Little Rock." Earlier yesterday McMath and Laney had met at an Independence Day picnic at Corning. There they shook hands, exchanged pleasantries about the weather and the state of each other's health and limited public remarks to the patriotic variety.

HOUM-S 'for Two—Not Three or : More Government housing experts take some of the steam out of the big 1950 housing boom by pointing "out some facts behind the rosy statistics. They point ovit that the average house being built todaj ia less than half the size of the average house which was put up In 1029. The houses are even -smaller than the average house which was built last year. No Two-Copper T« Proponents of keeping the two- cent-per-pound tax off Chilean copper haven't lost heart in spit* of the fact- that the tax automatically went on July 1, after having been off *lnce before the war. Hearings on & bill which would suspend the tax for two more years will be held the middle of this month. They think they mlgh^'get suspension pawed before this -summer's- adjournment. Meanwhile, prfc-es on all bra*£ and copper products appear to be going up. And all Chilean copper arriving In the TJ. S. is being placed in bond, pending a final decision on the tax. Placing it In bond adds about one-half cent' a pound because of the extra handling involved. If Congress adjourns, letting the tax stay, then copper and brass prices will zoom. And the speculators who have been hoarding copper scrap will clean up. Relieve Monthly Distress •*f*r* Pain Start* Sounds nlmcvit (mpfwsibl*. do*3n't it.

It's a sugar-coated name « for SOCIALISM, sweetened up by men who don't dare give it the proper title.

ASK THEM WHAT YOU CAN DO IF THEIR SOCIALISM FAILS THE PEOPLE. Socialism HAS failed miserably in every country where it nis been tried ... In England ... in Australia . . . in. New Zealand . . . and many oiher nationj. Why bet on a Ji6rse that his never crossed M jinish line? When government takes over first this business and then that one, we're racing blindly into Socialism — a hopeless government control over our very lives, which destroys us. The "Welfare Staters" call it "security". But before you invest your life, investigate their "proposition."
