WftDMEglMT, B&P1&MBEK », 1*0* Governor Smith Sees Ruin of State Highways Unless Taxes Are Raised If Awe A • ^11 IIM «. ^ * __. , . _„ CITY, Sept. ». (AP) -, Misiourl'i Uz coUtctlonj reached an all-tune peak last year,' Gov. Forrest Smith said today, but "in my opinion the oo«t of government i* never coming down." "the reason I make that asaer- tlon," he explained, "la because th« people of Missouri are not willing ve a curtailment or lessening government service* they are receiving." Governor .Smith «poke at'a luncheon meeting of the aouth Central Business Association. He renewed his attack on the, truti- Ing industry as not paying a tax 'share proportionate to the damage It does to the highways. ' "Trucks Are Exceptions" 'Those who use the highways and wear them out pay for their upkeep in proportion to the use they . make of those highways with one exception—the giant boxcar-like trucks," the Governor said. "The destruction' of our highways _ by _the, giant-sized, overloaded . tnirks has caused the maintenance cost to rise_ from 6 million dollars a few years ago to 15'million dol: Jars this year. ' "Since the special election on the gasoline tax last April there have been many, many letters demai'd- 1«B that the big trucks be required to pay a fair share cost of our major highway routes.'. "I- Intend to ask the next legislature again to enact some kind of a new highway law to enable Missouri to'keep in step with modern day transportation." .• • Governor Smith «»id "there will : not ^be any request for 'additional taxes during the time I ani^ your -tjtf-l executive except for' one ^ of our government, and that Is our state .highway department." "Oiir highway department is des perately in .need' of 'additional s funds," he continued. "Unless we do secure 'additional highway revenue .In the t very v near future, our. pre.";- ent.syst;em of highways in this .slate • will fall to pieces. 1 ! .The first zoo In,the United States was established in Philadelphia in 1874. -.

Ground Force* Won't Be Neglected On- prediction Is that Marshall as an Army ground officer will sec that the neglect of the ground forces, revealed by Korea, will be speedily corrected. It's also considered fairly certain th«t Robert A. Lovett wllfbe asked to return to the. government to work with Marshall. He was assistant secretary:-for Air when Marshall was chief of staff of the Army and. he. was Marshall's assistant "•hen the general was secretary of state. Most Pentagon officials who know Lovett approve of this. Still another 'tmportant fact ba- ing considered In trying / 0 anticipate Marshall's handling of the defense job is his former attitude toward .unification. Marshall wanted » stronger unification than exists, with a top chief, of staff instead of a joint chiefs of staff. He fought Forrestal on (his issue and lost. Forrestnl also was the main exponent o keeping civilian control of the Defense Department, a principle which., will :be violated under the present .circumstance.' It .will - be within the authority of the new secretary to, change the complexion of the unification set-up if he wants it. ,.••., However, there are a group of kev young men -who have been with the unification plan ever since its birth. Johnson kept most of them on and It Is expected that Marshall will do the same. Marx Leva is the out- Ftahrting one of these men. It Is likely that he 'will he given more authority under the new set-up. He and the others who Brew up with unification will be able to stive the new department the continuity it needs at this critical stage of Its growth. ; ' , Rutfian-Made Guns Copturm/ by Yankt; Reorfied for U$» WITH US SECOND DIVISION, Korea, Sept 20 if,— Scores of Rus si?n-made artillery pieces, which three dijs ago hurled shell? at American soldiers, soon will be blasting their former Korean Red ownera.
