"Mayor Pleasonts and Bos* Crump (of Memphis) should not be permitted to dictate to the leaders ot our good state," Cook wrote. "Memphis department stores and mail order houses have long bled citizens of this section, so now I say let the worm turn." Most of the letters, however are from church people and others who bitterly oppose ,a second track Iji Arkansas. H. D. Adams, pastor of the First. Presbyterian church in Little Rock, said "I beg you to use alt your influence to prevent the establishment of another blot on the name of Arkansas." Other letters are from the Re». p. H.

He said he served for six years as pastor of the First Baptist Church at Benton, 34 miles from Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs. Among the prominent laymen protesting the track was J. F. Fogleman, president of the Citizen* Bank at Marion. "I believe I can say without fear ot successful contradiction Hint a good majority of the people of Crittenden County is opposed to the proposed race Irack,' Fogleman wrote. Meanwhile, a Little Rock news* paper predicted today that the franchise will be granted "unless Gov. Laney changes nis mind." The paper also identified two Memphis residents which It said may furnish "big money" for the track. They were listed as Raymond Firestone, a member ol the tire manufacturing family; and Miss Helen Dodge, a member of the Detroit automobile family. The story added that 51 per cent of the stock would be reserved for Arkansas Interests. 'Little David/ 13-Year-Old Evangelist Prefers Preaching Career to Parents By Nebon W.
