This revision was insdc lo meet Ihc fanner's chief criticism of the 1016 crop insurance program. i're- viously, it frequently occiiired that crop insurance premiums were assessed on Ihe basis of the cotton price at the time of tbe policv purchase. Later, payments on claims were made Recording to cotlon prices when the claim was filed. Many farmers purchased their pr.llcics under high cotton prices and suffered .1 loss when payments were made based on prices fullmvinj; November's break. This was one of the objections raised by farmer.? nUcucliiiK yesterday's meet ing in Osceola in a discussion of the small amount crop Purchased last year.

Jan. 2:1. — iUP)—The clamor for more money for county roads swelled In the Arkansas legislature this week, and indications were that Ihe funds would be made available. Numerous measures providing for greater allocations to county Judges already have hit Ihc hopper. Others are expected next week. Chief ainoni! them is a use tax measure l )v jmij,,, Cv , loml o[ Crltlendeji Counly, president of the Arkansas County Judges Atwcla- lion. A use lax bill has been Introduced previously, but Judge Hond's measure would distribute the ben- eflls differently from the mcasr.-e no<,i- before the House Committee on Taxation. He would divide the revenue on '< SO-50 basis between the counties and cilles of Arkansas for roi purposes. Tlie measure previously introduced provided a spill between the University o f Arkansas and counties for roads. Bond expressed himself today confident that counties will receive more road money. "A great many of the legislators have expressed themselves as favoring such an allocation." he as- serled. The counties contend l\,,,, "icy do not have enough money lo match available federal funds. The Criltendrn C'ounCy judge opposed a measure whirb would permit tbe slate (r, rcfulltt 5'.T cent* of Ihc gasoline lax now collected from farmers for non- hiehway Use. "Such a move would mean » 1i per cent reduction in gasoline revenue." he asserted.
