This HGPfe, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, NOVIMBIR 17, 19S8 t Highway Warning (An Editorial) The highway warning sighs flfe floshihg with increasing urgency for those Arkansas citizehs svho want to see their rood system saved from d reversion to political domination. For the most part, these signs can be identified through the rumors that are "leaked" to the press of the impending; resignation or firing of Herbert Eldridge, Director of Highways. ( From unimpeachable sources we have it that the I'umor phase of getting rid of Mr. Eldridge is about over and that concrete action toward forcing his resignation is near at hand. As a builder of roads, Mr, Eldridge has the overwhelming endorsement of the people of Arkansas. He is recognized as having superior professional qualifications and not a trace of scandal has touched the highway program- during his tenure. What he is generally conceded ID ack in public relations technique is more than offset by his integrity and the results that speak for themselves. It is to be conceded that the five man commission and not Mr Eldridge will be the individuals that ultimately decide the tale of our Arkansas highway program Apparently this commission is divided in its convictions ranging from utmost dedication to the Mack-Blackwell omenament which was overwhelmingly adopted by the voters of Arkansas, to unalterable opposition to this law. While Mr. tldndge cannot and should not be able to control the actions or this commission, his continuation hrth' r fk i^l 6 t 'i ie i beSt indicat!on to 'he people that both the letter and the spirit of the Mack-Blackwell amendment is being followed. In all fairness, we believe the urge to oust the highway director does not stem entirely from the poli- E" S ; I be *' eVe \ hsre ° re man y other ^elf-serving interests, who formerly waxed fat out of the political way of building highways, that would like to have Eldridqe out of the way a of the 90 per cent participation provided tor highway construction on the interstate system by the national congress; Arkansas now stands on the threshold ot the greatest road-building area in its history. The tremendous expenditures involved, we believe, are in direct proportion to the political temptation to recapture the control of these funds. The reasons are obvious. Tremendous though these expenditures may be, public opinion is one of the few things that we' know of that speaks louder than money. The overwhelming adoption of the Mack-Blackwell amendment by the people was not enough. Their continued vigilance is the price of seeing that the law is obeyed. -' M c L h< L pr " Sure for 1he resi gnation of an individual in Mr. tldndge's position can be unrelenting and intolerable tie that as it may, we believe that Mr, Eldridge can perform •a public service^ for I he 'people of Arkansas by refusina resign until such time as the people" have had an opportunity to voice their feelings to those in authority. The voice of the peopje in Arkansas is irresistible if only they become interested enough to become vocal. At slake is the ouster.of a public servant with an outstanding record of accomplishment and unblemished integrity. The individual citizen must make his voice heard now to his elected representatives or share the responsibility for providing an open road and the green light to those who would return us to the ways of, political plunder. Military Coup Seizes Power in the Sudan By WILTON WYNN CAftlO (AP) — Another Middle Eastern parliamentary democracy wont into eclipse today when army commander Gen. Ibrahim Abboud seized power in a military coup In Sudan. The coup unseated the pro-Western government of Premier Abdullah Khalil. At noon, the official Sudan radio broadcast that army Units from all parts of the sprawling African nation reported all quiet. The Abbotld coop, so fai as can be determined here, had the back* j ? ing of.the entire army. The government radio in Khartoum, the Sudanese cnpltol. broadcast a declaration injlhe name of Abboud promising to do his best to achieve good relations with President Nasser's United Arab Republic. British sources. In London saw Abboud's coup as an Army bid to stall a political reconciliation wltn the U.A.R. They said the news, which was .reported to the government by 'the British mission at Khartoum, was no surprise.) Abboud also ordered immediate dissolution of nil polllical parties, supervision ot all newspapers, and prohibition of any demonstration* or political meetings The overthrow of the Khalil ,re-. gime came as Nasser' and the Sudanese government were trying to patch up long-sianding differences over division of ; the Nile waters, their frontiers and trade matters,' The ' Sudanese^ Parliament 'was [ scheduled to meet later this'month and both,sides ha^'d expressed hope that an'agreement would be ready for ratification by Thai time, .,, Abboud's rnilitary , coup upset one of the few. parliamentary democracies "left* in' th"e"'Middle' East.
