'Ark-., March 10. (UP)—The runners of Arkansas will get no refund pn tractor gasoline as the result of action of the present' Legislature. J The bill providing for such a refund, introduced by nep. Glen Walker of Hempslcnd County, is 1 tleatf lor all practical purposes. I Even Walker admits it. \ | The bill calling for a refund or five cents on Hie gallon on fuel used in farm tractors, was opposed t>y the administration, and it was hailed in the Legislature because Oov. Ben Laney did not want lo sign it. Tlic governor denied' any respnn- sibility lor an old campaign poster which was circulated in the General Assembly In which he allegedly promised Ihe formers a refund, but he did say the poster probably came out of one of his county campaign headquarters without his approval. 'Nevertheless, in the face of the poster, the governor did not wnnt tlic bill to hit his desk, and his men in the House and Senate were successful with rtmcntlments and narllamentary tactics in halting the bill.
