' < ^ ._ * .* t ^ vi t L.^ rr ' i ' An Open Letter to Highway Chairman Glenn Wallace (Editorial) Mr. Glenn Wallace Chairman, State Highway Commission , Nashville,-'Arkansas Dear Mr. Wallace; The purpose of this letter is to caH to mind that night in November 1956 when you telephoned me your unqualified support of Highway Director Herbert Eldridge. jThe. situation was this: My business associate, Waller E, Hussman, publisher of the Camden News, had Written for The NeWs and associated papers in southwest Arkansas an editorial questioning whether the Arkansas Highway Commission was giving Mr. Eldridge the support adequate to maintain him as the working head of an outonomous, non-political department —• spelled out by 1he Mack-Blackwell constitutional amendment. Mr. Hussman'repeated the editorial as a paid advertisement in the Little Rock newspapers. But the editorial never appeared in my own paper - — fot\the specific reason that it took you to task as a Highway Commission member. ! knew you personally, and was confident you would do the right thing for the people and for good government. On the day the paid Little Rock publications came out,, you telephoned me from your home in Nashville that night and asked, "What sort of fellow is Hussman?" l< told you he's just -a guy who honestly believes, in the Mack-Blackwell Amendment and keeping the State Highway Department out of politics. I added that I ,was sorry Hussman-had'put your name in the piece because I had confidence in you —- and for that reason I didn't run the . editorial in Hope. • And then, Glenn, you made this unsolicited statement over the lelephone/quoted from memory of course: "Your confidence is justified. I will defend Herbert Eldridge n'ow and in the future. When Eldridge goes, Glenn Wallace goes, too." Now Eldridge is gone — whether by.firing or resignation is immaterial. Speaking personally and for the people of southwest Arkansas where you live, Glenn, I think you should resign from the State Highway Commission. No other one act in all Arkansas could do so much to make the people, realize what they have lost in the ousting of Herbert Eldridge and the scuttling of the nonpolitical Highway Department. I appeal to you to bolster the hopes and aspirations of all the friends of good government by showing them that you were truly behind Eldridge to the finish — as you told me you were in November 1956 — and following .^him out of public office today.

In reply to a question, he said le didn't fel that there had been any deviation from Mack-Blackwell arinciples up lo-now.
