UP) — Taxi driver James o. Pascoe almost col- lecled SG.OOO as a cab fee. Mrs. Nettie Cross hired his cab, found she didn't have the funds to pay the $5 charge and turned over some of her husband's clothing as security. Later pasco took the clothes back to the cross apartment. A very worried husband. William Cross, hadn't known about the transaction and had reported the clothes stolen.

For some time past, Lausche has carried around with him two different statements on the senatorial race in Ohio. One was the statement he Issued, which has caused all the argument. The other, and as yet unissued statement, Is a direct and unmistakable endorsement of Taft. These statements were apparently drawn up shortly after Senator Taft and Governor Lausche appeared on the same platform Ohio V.'esleyan Untvereity some months ago. On that occasion Lausche found himself In. agreement with Taft on many Issues.

GOOD ROADS FOR ALL MORE hard-surfaced Toads have been built or contracted for during the past 18 months than during the previous four years. Governor McMalh'i admin- li^ration is bringing hard-surfaced roads into and through every county ia Arkansas. By 1951 every county will have at least one hard-surfaced outlet road. Let's keep this vital program operating without interruption. IMPROVED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM Since September, 1949, more children in Arkansas have had access to a fre* , high school education, in an accredited high school than any time in history. The school building program has been upped 40% by local districts in th* past 18 months. There are 143,700 children daily eating well-balanced, hot meals in the school lunch program at the present time, nnd the state is providing transportation for I49j830 boys and girls cinily to and from school. Governor McMath's administration will continue to cooperate with teachers, parents and local school boards for improved educational opportunities. Increased state aid has been given the University, all slate colleges, local school districts and teacher salary funds. PROGRESS IN AGRICULTURE Governor McMath sporuored legislation in the 1949 General AsMmbly REDUCING the tax on gasoline, by 4'/2^ per gallon, for farm engine* not used on the highwayi. The SAME legislation wan previously PROMISED by th« opposition candidate, THEN VETOED. Greatest assistance EVER has been given the rapidly expanding livestock industry by the present administration. Governor McMath hns vigorously supported the work of the Agricultural Extension Service, Experiment Stations, flnd Vocational Agricultural Education. He is aggressively fighting for rural telephone service to make it comparable to the rural electrification program. BUSINESS AND INDUSTRIAL GROWTH Last year, Arkansas had the highest percentage increase in tetnil sales and farm income of any state in the nation. Industrial payrolls and plant investments ave HIGHEST EVER. Employment is at record peaks. Dun ond Bradstreet reports that Arkansas' stable economy ranks among the first five states. Our buying power is greater than EVER. Arkansas will CONTINUE to grow under the present administration. WELFARE AND HEALTH IMPROVEMENTS Arltansai hai rendered great assistance to its older people under Governor McMath's administration. Twenty thousand mace older people and handicapped are receiving assistance than ever before. AVERAGE monthly old age assistance payment has increased from $18.00 monthly in 1048 to $26.00 at the present time. Thirty-five hospital projects, including a state medical center, in all worth more lhan 26 million dollars, are now in proces* of construction. These hospitals are being built by local people in every «ection of Arkansas, aided by the Stale Health Department and the U. S. Public Health Service. In cooperation with state and county medical societies, thn McMath administration will continue a stepped-up program of combatting communicable disease*. A SOUND STATE FINANCIAL CONDITION THE ADMINISTRATIVE COST OF OPERATING ARKANSAS' STATE GOVERNMENT IS THE LOWEST OF ANY STATE IN THE NATION. An HONEST, EFFICIENT Revenue Department has reduced the cent ol collection, and will continue to operate on a fair and equitable basis to all Arkansas taxpayers. The 1950 issue of highway bonds sold for only 2.11% inteI . es t_THE LOWEST INTEREST RATE IN THE HISTORY OF THE STATE. The average monthly balance in operating funds for the revenue year ending May 31, 1950, is greater than the average monthly balanc* for any previous year. AND, on May 31st, the balance in the General Revenue Fund was GREATER than it has EVER been at the end of any oth«r previous revenue year in the slate's history.
