If we vole for the reelection of flic governor, therefore, it must be on the basis of service rendered by him lo tins state in general, of which we are a part. Whether or not the fc'tilrcll adminis- ' tration has hceii a good one for Arkansas is a question that might easily bring on a lot of talk- In fnct there already has been a lot of it,, bill too much of it has reflected the. ;viewpoints of persons who were for Futrell in the lirsl place became tliey wanted something, and are still for him beciuise they got if, or of persons who are aggrieved because they didn't get something and hope a change in_ adniinis- • tration would improve their fortunes. Such tall; proves nothing and convinces nobody. But figures speak for themselves and the story they tell can't be refuted with generalities or erased with the street corner gossip that sometimes passes for campaign argument. If what'the people of Arkansas really wanted when they elected Governor Futrell was economy and good management of state affairs, the best basis for judging his record is afforded by the cold figures on state expenditures since he'took office. Such figures lire available in the recent reports of Griffin Smith, state comptroller, and Karl Wiseman, state revenue commissioner, for the fiscal year which ended June 30, 1934, which was the first full fiscal year of the administration and the only one for which expenditures have been under the control of the present administration. Following are a few pertinent figures: Total obligations of the stale general revenue fund, as of January, W33: $1,005.000. Total obligations of the state general revenue fund, as of June, 1934: SG93.000. Treasury cash balance lo the credit SATURDAY, JULY OUT OUR WAY of the general revenue fund, as of June, 1934: $135,669. Authorized charges against the general revenue fund for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1032: ?1,979,300, Authorized charges against the general revenue fund for the fiscal year beginning, July 1, 1033: $910,120. Cost of administering the duties now performed by the state revenue department, for the fiscal year 1M132: '?G&7,870.91 Cost of administering these duties by the present sliitc revenue department for the fiscal year 10;i:i- 8-1: .

Two years ago thu state of Arkansas was on the verge of bankruptcy. Stale Ixmds were in default and were .••oiling at a small fraction of their face value. The slate treasury was cmply. Thu general revenue fund was a million dollars in debt, slate warrants could not be cashed and wore peddled at heavy discounts, and because of its inability lo meet its obligations the state was coilipolled to pay fancy prices for anything it hud to buy. Today, without new or increased taxes, the old general revenue debt lias been .sharply reduced, current expenditures are on a . cash basis, there is money in the treasury, new .state warrants arc worth par, and the stale is able to buy at the lowest prices available to anyone. The highway debt is being refunded under a plan that saves Urn credit of the state and protects road district property owners from the fhreat of foreclosure. Arkansas, so far ^asJier public finances arc concerned, : v is well on the way out of as bad a situation a,s ever faced any state- Governor Kiili-ell doesn't deserve all the credit, by any means. He had a legislature that loyally supported him in every major proposal. But his was the leadership. Nor does this record prove thai the governor is better titled for his post than his opponent. Howard Reed. Those who can honestly fay that, valuable as lias been the service of Futrell, Reed will do better, most certainly owe • it to themselves and the state to vote for Heed. The record does prove, however, that despite mistakes which have brought down upon him deserved criticism, Marion Futrell-has done well the one big job which confronted him, when he took office, and for that he merits a high place among thu chief executives of this state.

Amy went upstairs to look at N'ancy and found her peacefully asleep, ^spread- eagled on the bed, her nightgown wadded up under her arms. Her body was long and sturdy for her age, her hair soft floss against the pillow. Amy thought of Jane In her golden gown wh' lind oeen in the room below hardly more than an hour ago. and had not asked for the child, did not seem to remember her eilsmnre. It made her feel etranga and she began to think more absorbedly ot Jane, recalling tho days before Nancy was born. Ihe only time she could remember when Jano had been completely downright nnd honest. But as soon as tho child was born &he had turned her back to her old self, refusing to accept anylhlng ot lite save wlial she chose from it. Edgar Lad said that Howard was afraid of Jane.
