He said that if elected lie may ask a special election so voters may reconsider the McMath highway borrowing program. McMath, at Tcxarkana, challenged Laney to outline his highway program. McMath said his administration was building highways made necessary partly because of "the worn- out, neglected and obsolete" condition roads were in when Laney left the governor's office. ' "What kind of a road prograir did he (Laney) have?" McMatl asked. "What kind of road program docs he have now? . •None at all. He has no road program and no program of any kind. "He charges that I have built only 'two-by-four' roads—and for once he's right. They were 'too bad before McMath. 1 " BT^YTHEVTLLI! (ARK.)
