TELEPHONE POLES All Dimensions 16 to 70 Feet Cosh Every Week RUFUS MARTIN PATMOS, ARK. New York, Jan. 8— Slowly, since (he shooting slopped and tho pretext of security ceased to shield the selfishness and self-importance of the selfless protectors of the common man, we are learning astounding fuels of their conduct in contrast to the preaching of the New Deal. We have learned that President Roosevelt used his influence to pro- note a loan of $200,000 for his son Elliott, and then engineered a coup by which the lender was whipsawed out of his collateral, with the president, himself, as the receiver and transmitter of the cor- lifieatcs. We have learned that he procured the R.F.C. to. buy up a baronial estate adjoining his own, operating through three holding corporations, ostensibly to acquire an experimental station for the Department of Agriculture but actually to provide that "undesirable" neighbors should not move in next door. Only after "security" was no longer to be invoked, we learned that a household garrison of 300 soldiers was maintained at Hyde Park and provided with a distinctive uniform, to patrol and guard the president's private premises, and, when he happened to be "inresidcncc," to protect his person. Now it can be revealed also that dining the time when that docile, gullible dolt, the common man, was drawing a gasoline ration of two and one-half gallons of low- guide fuel a week for the family car, when spies were noting the license numbers of cars parked at the movies, when even servicemen on leave were warned nol to use their litlle supply on frivolous er- i-ands— During those days, Henry Mor- gcnthau, llien secretary of the treasury, had a Lockheed Lodestar and, before that, a Lockheed Twelve, the property of the coasl guard and manned by coast guard officers and blue-jackets, all at public expense, to fly him from Washington to his home at Beacon, near the Roosevelt estale, and fetch him back to his office. Mr. Morgenthau is reticent regarding the actual number of such flights. He really doesn't know how many times he whipped up from Washington in 50 minules lo rest a lillle al his home while civilians below crowded into buses or slept or perched on suit-cases in the aisles o day coaches, and ration boards refused extra allowances of fuel for sick civilians to visit their doctors. His only impression is that the number of trips was "nol too many." Mr. Morgcnthau's first response was that he used a coast guard plane at limes on official business, inlgely on war bond trips, bul he conceded that ho did use the ship "occasionally" to fly to the airport at New Hackensack lo visit his home. "I really had no other way lo get home," he said and added that he thought a government officer was entitled to such visits, revealing, again, that fooling of preciousness which Harold Ickes betrayed when he explained that he put himself in Hie naval hospital in Washington, at a purely nominal ex- nense, and without Ihe slightest legal right, because the civilian hospitals in Washington were overcrowded and not good cnough^Ibr him. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of government employees in Washington, to say nothing of the many other millions elsewhere, also wished they might go home but, not being princes and prin. cesses of privilege, either couldn't make it at all or made il Ihe hard way. Mr. Morgenlhau says these ships weie not assigned exclusively to him bin that lie could use them if they were not otherwise engaged. Other informants disagree, insisting that first the Lockheed twelve and then the Lodestar were set aside for his exclusive use, with crews standing by at all limes lo fly him, and that the cost to Ihe lax-payers was about $10,000 a month. The Lodestar used aboul 300 gallons on each round trip. Inasmuch as Mr. Morgenthau served aboul 11 years in the cabinet, a permanent job as such matters are reckoned, it mighl have been appropriate lo make Washington his home. He interposes thai the Washington climate is nol always comfortable, a point that may be granted only with the stipulation that it is equally unpleasant to those who cannot escape merely by causing a secretary lo lift a phon and conjuring a magic carpel. He flew home, how many limes we do not know, although the logs and the testimony of the crews might establish the exact truth, while thousands of other men, no less weary from work and strain and no less anxious about illness in their families, spent many wretched ni;>hls in fro/en Pullmans,'commuting on essential war business between plants and their headquarters with only occasional nights in their own beds. Mr. Morgenthau seemed sad discussing the matter. He said he did not recall that he had ever received due credit for his feats of law enforcement against lax dodgers and other offenders. II is my impression that lie did receive geii- 37-28 Over Prescoft The Hope Bobcats met the Pros- coll Curly Wolves in Ihe Hope High School gymnasium January 8 and defealed them 37 to 28.

He's n former member of the Arkansas legislature from Bcnton county, later the Third district's congressman, more recently n lieutenant in the United States Naval Reserve. Just now, he is executive manager of the National Rural Electric Co-operative Association, with headquarters here, and in that ca pacity has been the subject oi! re cent advertisements of a public utility company in some Oklahoma and Arkansas newspapers. Under attack in these "ads" ^ Mr. Ellis's assertion that "we are fighting for our very existence against the private utilities." The utilities seem to figure that il if they that arc fighting for their "very existence" against the gov. ernment-aided co-operative enter prises. The Ellis-managed association i; national in scope, professedly non political, dedicated to protecting and furthering the interests o rural electric co-operatives. li slogan is 'one-cent electricity foi every farm." Privately-owned mil itios concede that it is an offec live lobby. REA Statsitics In 1935, when REA was established, only 11 per cent of the na lion's farms were electrified. Congress specifically directed the REA lo provide loans for power lines extension lo farm homes where utility companies found to litlle opportunity for profit to make he investment. When farmers in a locality want electricity in their homes and stores, they band together in a cooperative, apply for a government loan, and contract for their own power lines. They buy eloctricly from government power project' or from private utilities; or, i,, some cases, they own their own generating plants. Since they are non-profit organizations, they are exempt from "federal income lax, and this, the utility companies maintain, gives the co-ops an unfair advantage in that Ihey make no direct contribution to the costs of the federal government which encourages and safeguards them. When the co-ops hiivc paid operating cosls and interest and loan amortization, they may refund any profit balance lo members who, of course, would be subject to income tax on it. In Arkansas, despite Iho REA's progress, 175,224 farms, or 80.9 per com of all farms in Iho slate, wore still without electric service July 1, 1945, Administrator Claude R. Wickard reported. At that time, a $5,197,691 allocation, one of Ihe largest marie lo any stale, was sel 01? 1 , c ?-, r ,n the fiscal year enfli'iK June 30, 1940.

Frequently existing co-op- eiatives apply lor supplemental loans to extend service. Loans have been made under the REA act to 39 Arkansas co-operatives and to the Arkansas Power and Light Company.

C. /tt.FOLTZ, " By CARL BELL Fayetteville, Jan. 9 — Of) — Drawling John Barnhill took over his new duties as head football coach at 1hc University of Arkansas today with but one promise to 'do the best we can" to pull Ihe Razoi backs out of Ihe pigskin doldrums. The former Tennessee mentor alans to spend some time getting the feel of the Arkansas setup and '.•necking on the sehulaslic sland- -ng of currently enrolled athletes. After that he and his staff mem- iers will concentrate on scouring Arkansas and neighboring slates for material. The $10,000 a year grid boss has warned .Razor-back boosters not to expect a bowl team immediately but has placed stress on his planned program of building from the bottom with an eye lo the future. One of our first and most important tasks, -he declared, "is to build a solid foundation." Explaining his philosophy of fool- ball, Barnhill said: "I don't demand or expect my learns to win every game. All I ask Ihe boys is that they put out all Ihey have. If I feel they have done their best and displayed all of Ihe courage and sportsmanship thai is in them, I am satisfied, regardless of the score." As a starter he asserled Arkansas is lining up some fine maler- ial for nexl season. He said his slaff already had been conlacling prospects and would continue lo do so. Barnhill has not completed selection of his assistanls. He already has named Herbert "Deek" Bracket as backfield coach, Ho- barl Hoosier as line coach and George Cole as a third assistant. All three recently were discharged from the navy. Barnhill will introduce a single wing balanced line system at Arkansas. He also said in an interview last night that he was considering selling up a training dormitory and table here. He said he had nol yel made definite plans for spring training. Known to rely largely upon rushing tactics, Barnhill has emphatically pointed out thai he is nol prejudiced againsl forward passing which for years has been the Razorback's favorite mode of travel. "We'll throw 'em aplenty at Arkansas if we have anyone who can do the throwing," he staled. Addressing a group of 300 Razorback booslers al Fort Smith last night, Barnhill pleaded for the support of Arkansas citizens. "We can get the job done iS-ws all pull together," he told them. "Your job is one of the most important in building a winning team." He described Arkansas as one of the most fertile and promising fields in American foolball, pointing lo Ihe fad that Ihe universily has no serious competition within the slale for material. "I love Arkansas already," he smiled, "and I didn't have lo do anything except cross the river to get here."

It was arrayed against private utility interests in recent committee- hearings on the Poage bill, which would authorize loans of $500.000,000 to co-ops from the RFC through REA channels and another $5,QUO,000 for engineering-planning — all in addition to direct REA appropriations .
