"It evidently does not occur to some people that we are a part of Arkansas," he said. "They feel that if western Ar- kansas or any other outlying area of the state wants to better themselves, central Arkansas is being mistreated. * * * "What they evidently are un aware of is that we are growing as rapidly as other parts of the state and that the need for this road is urgent."

The Arkansas Turnpike Authority is conducting preliminary studies to determine where Arkansas should build its toll roads.
