Highway Commissioner Charles Adams of Hughes, to whom thc check was made out, said he had no knowledge that the money was being contributed for the high- j way. P. P. George of Clarendon, a retired farmer, was thc first witness called as the Arkansas Highway Department operations went under investigation. George testified that residents of thc vicinity had been unsuccessful in getting the Indian Bay road improved. Finally, in March, 1950, a delegation appeared before thc state -.Highway Commission and requested that the road be graveled. Previously, he said, he and other res- j !dcnts had started collecting a .fund tn help in [laying for improvement on thc road. i A f t e r the meeting with t h c ; Highway Commission, state crews ' did undertake improvements o f ' the road, he said. · | George said that on July l l . j 1950, Monroe County Judge Paul J.

A check was introduced in 'cvi- j 1 rinncc. It was signed by George for the Indian Bay road fund and i *vas endorsed by Charlie Adams ; and rc-cndorscd by Henry Woods j ' as campaign manager. Woods, ;' executive secretary to Governor McMath, managed his successful 1050 campaign for Democratic re- nomination.
