Washburn..,_ to Levy Tox Property? 43 Would Forbid It RuVrmlings from Little Rock Isuggest that the state government 'plans among other things to meet nevA?/, revenue demands by going back into the business of levying a tax' against ad valorem property assessments. After .enactment of the Hall 2% state sales tax tlie Arkansas government made an earnest effort to get .out of the property tax field, Where it had collected up to 8 mills — and for a dcade or more we have had no property levy in the state's name. Assessing lias been conducted [locally everywhere and likewise he tax money which that assessing has produced has been spent entirely locally — for schools, county and city government, local roads, libraries, hospitals, and the Ilike. _; : v j Great stress has been laid on the ecessity for jacking up property ssessments, which seemed to persist in trying to live at a pre-war level when everything else had been raised 200 or 300 per cent by inflation. Local citizens built up this fire to help out their local government and local institutions. But now comes tho long arm of the stnte f and threatens to pile more millage ' of its own on the local heap. Across the nation tax authorities .see a' critical situation rising for 11 state governments. As retail sales ease off from wartime peaks there is bound to be a decline in such major state revenues as the sales tax. Wall Street Journal reports, for instance, that ,,in August the state of Ohio took in only 14.3 million dollars in sales • tax" — off 10.6% from August a year ago. • That doesn't necessarily mean i^he state governments, particularly ^Yrkansas, have to go back to taxing property. Local government can ease off on its demands for state revenue and raise more of its own money by reforming the assessment picture at home. That's precisely what is happening in Kentucky. The Kentucky Tax Commission, determined to equalize assessments all over the state, has just ordered .increases in about three-fourths $>f the state's 120 counties; Kentucky state, tax" men v found- that, assessments pretty generally stuck to pre-war levels, ignoring the markup which has occurred in everything else — including'the'cost of government. . "•••'••'•' •'•; No matter how you figure it assessments are going to have to be drastically revised, and Arkansas has such an undertaking for tlie voters to pass on in tlie ^November general . election — Proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 43. And the purpose of today's editorial is to point out one more potent reason for supporting No. 43 in November: The amendment not only puts teeth ; into the local assessing system — it forbids the state government from ever again levy- ^S'*J* f^ 'MS 1 * thft day & lilUt ufld toftighUfc _„„ stattost 24-hoiirs fending. 8 a. if High 99, Low 70, trade nation.

Coaches Lawrence Martin aii c. John Pearce will field a team boasting a 1G1 pound line as compared to 105 for the visitors. Hope backs tip the scales at 151 while Stamps backs average out at 165. Very little is known about cither team. But it's 'an accepted fact that Coach Fielding Huddleston of the Yellowjackets has moulded Stamps into a formitable foe the past two years and they played Hope to a tie in the opener last season. Hope has its lightest squad in a number of seasons but it's no secret that the Coaches are very pleased with the spirit and have a lot of faith in the Bobcats. Ten of the starters are letlermen. The back-field will include Steve Marlar, Roy Mullins, Wayne Johnson and Bruce Duke. The starting line is Huddleston and Rowe at ends, Chambless and Herndon at guards, Crawford and Honeycutt at tackles and'Keck at center. Both teams are in fair shape with only minor ailments and the game is expected to attract ohe/.of the largest crowds of tho season., The officials include Percy Sanders as referee, Bill McClendon, umpire, Teddy Jones, headlinesman and Ciell McClure, field judge.

Nan^esReady for 18 More Hurricanes MIAMI. Fla. Iff} When Hurricane Edna makes up her mind and moves off the weather scen«, names pro ready for 18 additional tropical storms this season. Edna is No. 5, so named for the fifth letter of the alphabet. Her predecessors wore Alice, Barbara, Carol and Dolly.. That makes a total of 23 names. Grady Norton, chief storm forecaster in the Miami Weather Bureau, said that number should be more than sufficient since the greatest number of tropical storms ever recorded in the Atlantic-Caribbean-Gulf of Mexico area was 21 in 1933,, The entire list of names is selected by the Air Cordinat- ing Committe on Meteorology :'madc up of Air Force, 'Navy ':i and Weather Bureau , men at> Storm Warnings Issued on Coast ofCarolinas JACKSONVILLE.

Storm warnings flow north and south of the hurricane area* from Myrtle Beach, S. C., to Eastport. Maine. Grady Norton, chief storm forecaster in tlie Miami Weather Bu reau, ordered the warnings up and said the center of tho tropical storm should pass near but slightly outside of Cape Hateras by or before midnight. "Precautions should bo taken for very high tides and dangerous winds on the North Carolina and Virginia capes this afternoon and tonight," he said. The storm at 11 a. m. was centered about 225 miles south of Hatteras and moving about 10 miles an hour on a course slightly cast of north. Hurricane force winds extend 100 miles out from the center in the eastern semicircle and about 50-miles to the west. Gale winds cxtencj outward 150 to 200 miles from ;the center in all directions.

All may not be; clear sailing for tlie millionaire New Deal-Fair Deal stalwart, however, because some powerful, backers of Rep. jFrnnklin D. Roosevelt, Jr. threaten a floor fight at the Democratic State Convention. ;.But the leaders' endorsement probably has assured Harrimnn of a 'majority of the delegates. A statement backing Harrimon was issued late yesterday by Democratic State Chairman Richard.H. Balch and Democratic National C&mmittemaii Carmine G.

FBI Letter Is Admitted by Censure Group By RAYMOND LAHR and HERBERT FOSTER WASHINGTON (UP) The Senale's special censure committed agrcd today to icceive in evidence Sen. Joseph R McCarthy's famous 2'/ 4 -pago "FBI letter.' But it declined on security grounds to make it public.
