They came from an oil dealer, a sharecropper. » furniture dealer, a Negro high school principal, local union spokes- I men. a man whose son was killed Jn World War II and similar representative members of the city's population. Almost without exception, the citizens cited the need for the base u a shot in the arm for the city's economy, others took Issue with the morality and farm labor charges put forward by the opposition to' the base. Petitions were still being circulated «gainst reactivation of the base, but the number of signers to date was not available today. There were no new charges or answers issued today by either side. But tlie citizens •were expressing themselves.

Aulry of Burdette (above) was elected to his sixth term as president of the Arkansas Pair Managers Association at the annual meeting of the group in Little Hock yesterday. He also is superintendent of schools at Burdetie. An Associated Press report said Clint Walden of Fay- etterille was elected vice president and Clyde E. Byrd of El Dorado secretary-treasurer of the fair group. . .out on their farm for six months-of the year. They have let their down or have torn tin was a good thing for they good in the first place. If they want labor, why don't they provide a home for them in- «tead of bringing in the Mexicans to live in barns and tents. No, these big land hogs will never learn any thing until they are taught. They really want to get back to their dictatorial powers of thej thirties, when labor cried for a chicken house to live In and a dollar & day to live on. I and a lot of others here in Blytheville . , . prefer to have some industry to work at whether it be private construction or by the government. If it doesn't come here, we will have to leave for work In other places and leave the cotton fields for the tractors, Mexicans, geese and llame-throwers. About all the Southern landlord has ever learned was to raise cotton , »nd wear out the land. About all you hear them talk about is whaj they have to pay their labor or how- costly It is to farm. But try to get some of the land yourself and see how far you get. They should be pitied, these people 'in their mansions, their big cars and going about like nobody else mattered. Do they have a lot of work to do now that a family could live on? Yes, if you want to wade mud, water and freeze your feet and hands off a day or two a week while they lay around town or glare through their windshields while you try to eke out ttvo or three dollars which you have to have because you haven't worked In two weeks or more and are going In debt to some corner grocery every day—but I am sure not to the landlord because he has learned that you can't make enough to pay him so he stays in the clear, lets you do the work and somebody else lias to take the risk E.

Cigarettes To Go Down In Arkansas WASHINGTON I/P)—The price of cigarettes in Arkansas will be cut two cents a package beginning March 1. The price-cut order came from the Office ot Price Stabilization yesterday. It virtually over rode Arkansas' so-called "fair trades practices," law. Act 101 of 1951. The net, which prohibits retailers from selling cigarettes below cost, went into effect June 6, six months after prices had been frozen. An order allowing Arkansas retailers to raise their freeze prices to levels required un- der'the law was issued in September. OPS said the rollback in Arkansas is necessary because other states have sought to raise their cigarette prices. OPS said it would be discriminatory to refuse their requests while allowing a boost in Arkansas prices. . -^ ••;' The ^one-cent;..g9vernme_nt" tax and twq-cent.' state\tax adopted" last year tfill not be" Effected by the cut. . .
