Call Six MOM STAR, HOP!, ARKANSAS f December II, 1951 Archbishops Are Elevated by the Pope By F BRUttO VATICAN dltY AP> — 1*01)0 John XXtll today formally olcval> cd the aichbishops of Philadelphia and Boston and 21 olhor ttonirtfi Catholic prelates to the rank of cardinal. Twenly4hree of the 51 other jjrihces of the church, meeting In secfct consistory nt the Valicah, fcavc their silent assent to the Pope's action, confirming (he choices he had announced Nov. 17. The pontiff, himself crowned supremo ruler of the church only last month. increased the membership of the Sacred College to 74 and gave the- world's half-bll» lion members of the church their broadest representation ever in the high senate body. Elevation of the new cardinals broke the limit of 70 set for the college by Pope Sixlus V In 1586. In his address to the Sacred College telling of his choices, tho pontiff called particular attention to the persecution of Catholics by the Communist regime in China, Missionaries have been oxpell»<l and many archbishops and uishop/i, "lull of zeal and courage, fcrc in prison, or restricted or impeded in the free exercise of iheir pastoral ministry," he said. "The clergy nnd faithful have .become the target of blandishments, menaces, physical and moral toi lures, '• tht Pope continued, ill: order to .force them "to break. the bond of obedience and love which links them with the See of Peter." "Vnforlunatcly, " he went on, "we have to declare with sorrow that there are not wanting soino who, fearing the orders of men more than the sacred judgment of God, have so faryicldcd to tho commands of persecutors as to accept sacrilegious episcopal consecration from which no power of jurisdiction can be derived since it was conferred without the man date of the Holy See." Pope John asked the Catholic 'bishops o fthe world to arrange for '"public occasions of 'prayer and penance" to beseech ,God 'to ''enlighten tho minds of those who are going astray" and to "give Mrength or will" to all the Catholics o£ China.

This hns Ibecn pointed up em- lihalically during the past five years, First, the Arkansas State Highway Commission was reorganised under .provisions of tho MJC- Blackwell amendment — approved ay a margin of 3-1 by voters in the 1952 genera) election, This opened the floodgates (o ic of Ihe biggest eras of road building and'improvement in Arkansas history — starting with (lie lirlng of Herbert Eldridge as highway director in 5053, Two years later the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission came into being with nationally- known financier Winthrop Rockefeller — then a comparatively nc\v resident of the state — as chairman, ' Since'then industrial growth has been just short of phenomenal, And Arkansas' tourist business has grown steadily in (ho past 10 years — but (ho biggest spurt has come Jp (he last five years, industrial clients, naturally, are necnly jnterosloci in knowing what a community lias to offer. Good, apcossible highways rank Plo&c (p (ho top of thp l}st of prime recan're- mcn(s, Tour(s(,s want to know tho poij- clilion Pf a state's roads before go ing there. And there was a lime, }Q years ago when motorists were advised to bypass Arkansas because of its poor highways.

Hero's an example how road conditions can figure, A prospect came to Arkansas With a sales manager who was trying to sell him on locating n new plant in another state, As they drove fiom Tcxaik-ina to Lille Rock, the prospect took cognizance of some bod stretches of road, This was a bad start, ' But A1DC officials took him m (own. They drove him and the sales manager over some of the stale's best roecls, and pointed out explicitly the improvement program of tho^ AHD, JTvcn tho sales nipntigbr was impressed, So the Proscojilc Company cunie to El Dorado. _ South Arkansas' keenest competition for industry 'comes from Northeast Arkansas because that section Js closrr to the midwest markets.. * An improving interstate highway system promises to change this. ''Interstate system" is (ho popular name foi (he national system of intcrostato defense highways, established 'by congress in 1911 under tho Fedora) Aid Hiehw-iy Act, Small appropriations \vere doled out from time (o time, • But in 1Q58 came a noWj far. reaching Federal Highway Act which provides for a Irempndous )0iid-builc!ing program with emphasis on an interstate system (hat will be completed within U to 15 years. When finished, the interstate sys« (cm will sprye 90 per pent of a.11 pities in the natipn with oyer 50,* CJQO population; §5 per pent of th,e urban popuj.itipn; ancj 50 per of (hQ rural population, These new highways will carry ,1 per eent pf Jhe country's mo(pr vehicle traffje -T- and Wt \vnl constitute enjy }.2 ppi~ j?9lH of the total road .mileage m the-V.S. The 525 miles of 4l',ka,nsa,s' in- i,ej>i9te routes will traverse 20 pounde?, dirpedy ^crying 1? of (hp &i cities in the,5tstp'wiUl over Tonnassee state line at Memphis north to the Missouri state lii'.a northeast of Blytheville via West Memphis. (4). A connection to Fort Smith'. (5). A loop to the west of Little Rock, including a nesv fourth bridge across the Arkansas Rivet'. The 1956-net is also speeding up const! uction on federal aid pil- mary and secondary roads m the state. The interstate program is fi* irinccd mdopenriently of oilier I'eci- cral aid projects. Funds lor tho latter are on 50-50 matching baa- is. However, the new act substantially increased the amounts theorized for federal aid highways. So, while the interstate system is being constructed in Arkansas, other federal aid highways can be improved at a faster rate,' provided, of cburse, the state con match (ho increased federal allotments and at tho same time contribute iis share for (he building of interstate highways, Financing of the interstate system is on this basis m Arkansas; \l|Vie government provides ^Qpor cent of the funds, and the state 10 per ceqt, „ , The government's sharq qgm'e's from increased taxes on gasoline, tires, recapping rubber, trucks, trailers, and buses, Also ,i use ta?" has been levied on trailer-trucks weighing more than 3?,000 pounds, Thus, with this vyayo of improye- mom under way, Arkansas jvjll have an added indnueoictil to of- let- industries and tourists. Highway officials frankly admit thai it would not bo possible for tht state to have good roads without federal assistance. Location is an important requirement for industry, That's why prime sites are being se( up along key highways, Most industries will list road po possibility as one ,/? the reasons why (hey located in a certain ares?.
