MONDAY, JANUARY 18, 19-17 Highway Users Pay Heavy Tax $60,()00,000 Take Predicted for Next Three Years i.rri HOCK, j-,\:\. 13 _ tspe- clai — lievcne from taxes imposed on Arkntieas motorists will hll ill) nil-time peak during Die next three years, producing an income of approximately $66.000,000, Win. Ij. Humphries, .secretary of the Arkansas Wholesale Grocers' Association declared here today. J^r this total. Mr. Humphries E"<cl approximately $51,000.00 would come from the stale's (j.5 cent cflR- olinc tax. and an additional $15,000.000 from vehicle license fce.s. '"Jills e.stimatc," Mr. Humphries •said, "is extremely conservative In that it discounts the strong possibility that automobile ownership and use will increase in Arkansas durlliK the l!!47-48 ami 1343-43 fiscal years. With only a live percent increase duriiif; each O f the two periods, an additional SI. 000.000 annually would lie made available to the .state Tor highway uses." AyaJnst this total revenue, Mr. Humphries declared, the state must set aside. 531,155.000 under reciuire- ments of the Refunding Act for cost of collection, county turnback and debt service. The remainder, he said, will lie available for hi«h- way maintenance and improvement, nncl when added to federal aid funds and state funds currently on hand, will t-,ive Arkansas approximately $12,000.000 for highway improvements during the three-year period. This :i mount. Mr. Humphries said, exceed-; by nearly $3,000,000 the total estimate of funds needed prepared recently by the Arkansas Advisory CoimniU?c as a guide to post-war road construction in the slate.

ISy AUSTIN €. WKIIUWEIN United 1'ress Staff CorreslTondcnl WASHINGTON, Jan. 13. — Nobody expects the mushrooming claims for billions in back portal- to-portal wages to be settled for more than a fraction of the totals asked. Many person!,, aware of the temper 01 congress, doubt that the bulk of the union claims will ever be considered. They expect Con- press to pass legislation killing the suits. Even if Congress should not act, responsible government sources consider it most unlikely that more than a small part of the claims, now in excess of S4.COO.OOO.OOO would ever be allowed in court and finally paid. Too many legal obstacles stand in the way. But all indications arc that Congress will pass legislation tin-owing the cases out. The Republican leadership of both Houses is on record favoring such legislation. Senate hearings will begin Wed-- icstlny. Several bills have been in- roduccd. They would either throw out all of the suits filed or limit their lumber drastically. Among those who hold that the back-pay claims have been "yross- y, .exaggerated": is L,.

A iAIN at Ihe close of 10-I6— when America's need for new motor cars and trucks is most urgent — the Chevrolet Motor Division of General Motors leads all oilier manufacturers in automotive production. This means that Chevrolet is first in passenger car production —first in truck production — first in combined passenger car <i/ir/ truck production . . . despite the fact that all Chevrolet plants were closed completely during the first three months of 1946! Naturally, Chevrolet hopes to he able to build more and more of these fine products which America is buying so eagerly—the only motor car giving BIG-CAR QUALITY AT LOWEST COST—the only truck giving BIG-TRUCK QUALITY AT LOWEST COST-thc complete Chevrolet line which stands out as the lowest-priced line in its field!
