Rumors persist that difficulty may be found in finding a market for $15,000,000 worth .of highway bonds which must be sold to take up a ? 15,000,000 short term note issue maturing within a few months. And that .suggests a revival of old fears concerning several million dollars worth of highway improvement district bonds which gasoline lax revenues and bond sale proceeds have been taking cure of under the Martincnu law, but which can be dumped back onto the land in this and other counties .should the slate find itself unable to cany them any longer. jVfore fax, Less Revenue. Justin Matthews, state highway commission member, estimates that the recent 20 per cent increase in. the Arkansas gasoline tax will increase gross revenues not more than 10 per cent over what the old tax would have yielded. It is reasonable to believe that Ilia major portion of this loss is suffered in counties along the Missouri border • _ : whcre^thc^differential between the'Ar- ' ' kansas tax and that in the neighboring state is by 1'ar the greatest. That •means that gasoline tax revenues in counties along the Missouri line not only have not been increased by the tax boost, but have actually suffered a net loss. We believe- an adjustment could be marie that would give the highway department more revenue from this and other north Arkansas counties while at the same time enabling Arkansas business men W compete successfully with their Missouri neighbors. Failure of the 6-cent gasoline tax to produce the anticipated revenue, coupled with diversion of highway funds to other purposes by the last legislature, are given by Mr. Matthews as reasons why the detriment has found it necessary to curtail ils 1931 construction program. These iare good reasons, obviously, Funny How Things Drop When Politics Stop For Hie past two years and during our stalo re this year we heard u great deal about reorganization of our slate government on nu efficiency basis.

Whatever has happened, the worshipful and cheering tlironss are out of the picture, and Jesus a»pears with his disciples quietly making provision for the celebration of the Passover with them, am! later surrounded by (hem In the upper room. Already the clouds arc gathering. Where yesterday all was bright and hopeful. Jesus now In his words to the disciples portends his coming sufferings. The meaning of his wor<!s is not aKoyelher,.£lear. Perhaps the disciples themselves did not quite tni- I demand what he meant by saying 1 that he would not eat of the. Passover until it be fulfilled In the Kingdom of God. It might be that Jesus himself had a feclinj that the Kingdom of God was coming In a different way than through that experience of death, and the experience worse than death In feeling that he had been forsaken of the Father. Definitely in his mind, however, was the realisation that in some way the crisis of bis earthly mis- sion'was at hand.

And lie sent PeUr and John, saying, Go and prepare us the pass- over tint we muy eat And when the hour was conic, he sat down, and the 12 apostles ated the fellowship in the upper room and continued the remembrance of i!:e Jifas'cr. It may probably be said of this service in the upper room, as It may b2 said of the Communion service in our modern day. that each one derives from it what lie brings lo it. It is a service full of mystical meaning for those who can approach it in the spirit of faith and mysticism. It is a service which is touched with little meaning lor tlioEC who have little of the spirit of Christian imagination or devotion. The disciples manifestly did not understand the events in which they were participating, and it is possible that Ihe story of the upper rcom has been somewhat col- c:-;;t by the fad that it was written Ions after the event when tlv agony and death of Christ, as well as tile Resurrection, had given the ncident the meaning that was with | hsld at the time.
