At the same time I will appeal .far the erganization of an Arkansas League of Voters -^ to flaht unfair tax measures in the lebby«ridden legislature by holding over it the constant threat of a petition to refer tax laws to a popular vote, , J Q ™ paying personally for the TV network, totaling $1,848.75.— just as I have previously spent $9,091.03 personally on referral petitions to defeat the legislative lobbyists, As a result of these expenditures you are going to get a chance to knock the 3% sales tax on groceries and medicine down to 2% by voting against Act 19 next Tuesday. And in this speech I will tell the public school teachers and the old folks of Arkansas exactly how the state can find money for them after the 3rd-cent sales tax is defeated — as it is going to be. ' Thursday, October 30, from 7 to 7:30 p. m., I will speak over the three stations at Little Rock; KTHV (Channel 11), KARK (Channel 4), KATV (Channel 7); and the Fort Smith station, KNAC (Channel 5). I will repeat the speech in person Friday, October 31, ;[° m 7 |° 7 -'30 over the Texarkana station, KCMC-TV (Channel 6), with a simultaneous pickup scheduled tentatively on the El Dorado station, KRBB (Channel 10)'.

All donations will be banked for future use of the League of Voters — to fight .the rich and arrogant lobbies u'u contro1 fhe Arkansas legislature . . . and/against which the common .people have no defense except the threat to petition for a popular vote.
