As Eisenhower assailed the Democrats on issues ranging from civil' rights to missiles, he himself came tinder renewed fire from .Democratic campaigners. W.inding up his rollel in the campaign, Elsenhower told his cheering GOP audience that in the last three months unemployment has dropped by l'/a million persons. He added: "That's Republican progress- not just talk, not leaf-rakng schemes, not federal handouts. Just sensblio leadership." At Casper, Wyo., Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B.

There's an old saying that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Jn the case of an emergency caused by either a natural or a man-made disaster, an ounce of prevention could mean the difference between tolal destruction and the saving of thousands of lives. Three phases of family prepared- jiess which could mean Ihe difler- cnce .between l|fe and death in a disaster are: Home shelter, disaster know-how and first aid. These were explained in the Hand* book, as were Warning Signals. CONE-LJRAP Instructions, Fallout Protection and. Commonily, plans for emergency qclion in case of an enemy attack. Though some people may have the mistaken idea that Civil Defense preparation is glorified pretense by silly alarmists, il is, in truth, sensible recognition pf realistic ppssibpjtiesj "Put nobody's going to attack US," these people \viii say.

My name is Alex 11. Wiishburn, editor and publisher of the Hope Star, evening: daily at Hope, Arkansas. The son of a Pennsylvania instiraiice manager and banker, I was Rraduatod 1'rotn the University of Missouri in 102'5, moved to Arkansas the next clay, and have been a citixen of Arkansas ever since—first at El Dorado, and, in J!)29, at Hope. Because I, a private citixen, have taken a public stand for good schools and the KCM- eral welfare of Arkansas, you will hear the politicians and bureaucrats belittling me. I have frightened them by finally obtaining a popular vote on the 3% sales tax on groceries aiul medicine November 4. So they retaliate by_ trying to spread doubt in the minds of the rj'epple. Just a country editor, they'll tell you —who's financing him? It happens that I am in a position to be independent of the politicians and bureaucrats. 1 was one of the original advocates of the sales tax before its enactment in 1985.' The permanent bound file of Mope Star for March 1, 1935, reports that, the night before, 1 was one of four Hope men who appeared before a committee of the Arkansas legislature in support of the Hall bill,'the original sales tax measure. The other three were: 0. A. Graves,-Hope banker and school board attorney; and Charles ''Han-ell and the late Tlieo P. Witt, Hope school board members. The same newspaper file shows on February' 21,1935, this editorial signed by myself: '"This friendly newspaper wishes to warn Governor Futrell not to let the 50th Assembly .adjourn without producing a revenue bill 'thai, will adeq'ua'tely meet I'he' school crisis;'. This newspaper is committed to a state sales tax for the schools." And on March 7, 1935, the same file reports that the Hope ,PTA Council adopted a 'resolution praising me and my editorials for an outstanding "'contribution to good schools and good government. Do the PTAs feel toward me today as they did 23 years ago? Are you kidding? The sad fact is,, they don't love me any more, 1 urn out here attacking the 3'X sales tax on groceries and medicine, urging you to vote against Act 19 on November 4, The PTAs have joined hands v/ith the University of Arkansas, the Extension Service, the political school managers in the Arkansas Education Association and the State Department of Education, and the machine politicians in a campaign to make you believe the S'/i sales tax is necessary for the public schools and that the bulk of the sales tax does in fact go to the public schools, Who is right in this controversy—an experienced newspaperman who was in there pitching 23 years ago and who has kept up with the legislative record all the years since; or the clamoring crowd now trying to stampede you with words and slogans in a campaign carefully organized by master politicians? , Let us examine the record of how the sales tax has been misused the last 23 years—and then you can decide for yourself who is right and who is wrong, Under the original sales tax law the public schools got 65^ of the revenue—today they get considerably less than half, despite two at the end of the Great Depression. Property was broke. It could not carry the school burden alone. The Hales tax was enacted as an emergency measure with the understanding that property assessments would be reformed and made to carry their fair share of the tax load as we worked our way out of the depression. Twenty-three years Inter this turns out to be the biggest double-cross of the common people in all Arkansas' 122 years as a state. Today Arkansas property values are the highest in history—but the assessing ratio is the lowest. I am comparing the 1929 figures, before the sales tax, with the figures today—when we have a '6% sales tax on groceries and medicine. Remember that 1929 had a 100-cent dollar. Our dollar today is worth about 33'/a cents. You know what I mean. You bought an automobile back in 1929 for $700. Today it costs you $2,100 or more. And the same inflation applies more or less to groceries and other necessities—but you pay, nevertheless, 3% sales tax on those high prices. Now let us see how property and wealth have fared in the tax business since 1929. In 1929 my home county of Hempstead had a total assessment of $8,182,592. That would figure out in today's currency as $24,397,770, without allowing for any new construction or any rise in-market value, Do you know what Hempstead county's total assessment is today with the highest market in history? It is $11,'122,8/15—less than half the adjusted dollar assessment of 30 years ago, :ibotit the the -whole state of Arkansas in "1929 was $624,324,850. That would figure out in today's currency as $1,872,974,550, without allowing for any new construction, new industry, or rise in market value. Arkansas' total today, with the highest market in history, is $1,010,266,580— only a little more than half the adjusted dollar assessment of 30 years ago. Property assessments haven't followed the upward flight of the inflation dollar. They didn't have to—now we have a 3% sales tax on groceries and medicine, presumably to help the public schools—but also handing big property owners a 50% cut in assessments, The stale-wide cojnpai;ison, is i same.

What about its U}x record? i will shock you as it shocked me — and f give you my word i have done my level best to 'improve its assessment record, without success. As you know, you can't make sharp increases individually without involving the tax assessor in a lot of arguments with other property owners. So the conscientious citizen who tries to make an honest report stands alone and rejected, Back in 1929 Star Publishing Co, owned only machinery — no real estate. Our initial uidit shows we paid local taxes that year totaling $850.08, Revalued in today's 88'/ } cent dollar that tax bill, if there were no additions to machinery and no purchase of real estate, would figure out at $769,89, Hill over the last SO years that newspaper plant has been replaced, with tho exception of one linotype, Jn 3982 we bought a downtown building, and in 1955 we tore it down and put up a brand JievvwiivcondHiojied building, Against that adjusted tax bill of $769,89 back in 1989 what do you suppose Star Publishing Co, paid this year? Jtouetly $598 1 That is to say, after $0 successful years, and now owning valuable downtown property, Star Publishing Co, finds itself paying a tax bill $171,89 jess than it pajd SO years ago when, it owned no i;eal estate! Furthermore, to" illustrate how the asses, sing picture has failed, the high tax; of I92p was earned on S9-7 mjlls, .Today's mjllage is 52— but this produced $171.89 less ia* than 39,7 mills did SO years ago.
