Wl WASH YOUR LAUNDRY BY ITSELF 1 v 1 ^•^7'**nm OUR DAILY IHtAD Silted Thin by Th* editor Al«x. H. Waahburn tight Here in Arkansas the Record Shows Stevenson Is Truman's Man-I'm Ike's In the 25-year collection of cartoons from New Yorker magazine there is a scene labeled "1928." It's a picture of the docks. Some stevedores are looking at a campaign picture of Alfred E. Smith, and one remarks: "They say he's a good guy — but me, I'm voting for Prosperity." I didn't fall for that Republican propaganda back in 1928. Every citizen worth his salt knows that politicians and parties don't any more 'control booms and busts than they control the sun and the rain. Your editor ignored the phoney "Prosperity" issue and voted for Smith irv 1928, at El Dorado, because there had been scandals in the Department of the Interior (Teapot Dome's oil) and the Department of Justice (Harry Dougherty), and Republican Washington needed a good cleaning-out. Americans ore brought up to believe that if you don't keep your public officials honest you can expect anything you get — public or private. And what we got after failing to shake up Washington in 1928 was plenty! My view of the 1952 election may not square with the rest of the country, but then the rest of the country Was wrong in 1928 — bribed into forgiving the sins of federal government by an illusory prosperity. What followed in 1929-33 was a judgment out of the Old Testament. ' Next Tuesday I am going to vote for Dwight Eisenhower and against the following things: Corruption and mismanagement in Washington. The present handling of the war which we are losing in Korea. A cynical frame of mind which, under pressure of a monumental debt and the need for still more money, is causing the central government to change its fundamental form und reach out greedily for land and wealth' and power, wherever it finds them, and regardless who has them. The corruption, you know about — it even invaded for the first time on a national scale the trusted realm of the Internal Revenue Bureau . . . with $750,000 income tax claims against Chicago gamblers being settled for peanuts. That there was a political payoff either before or after is obvious. Big crooks go free. But if you aren't a local police character the federal boys put you in prison. About the Korean war: We're not going to get anywhere with Washington's present half-a-loaf policy. We got half of Germany and half of Korea — and we've already bought ourselves more than 100,000 casualties in what President Truman calls "a police action." America is holding up the world financially, but for how long? Do you know where 20 years of one-parry rule P and a war and "a police action", h,ave^pu,t us? .Lisjren.tp . this — from the text of Senator Byrd's speech to his fellow Virginians September 17: "Virginia's financial menace is the federal debt, of which our pro rata share, on a basis of our tangible weallh, is about 6 billion dollars. This 6 billion dollars is actually equivalent to the full market value of all visible property within our state — all the land, all the buildings, machinery, livestock, and everything else of tangible value. In other words, the federal government has in a few years mortgaged Virginia to the hilt, and to the full extent of the wealth accumulated by more than 300 years of industry and thrift." The financial pressure on the Washington govern- tf\ent is so terrific that it now contrives to steal, by legal stratagem, lands and powers which never in our history could be acquired except by vote of the congress or a constitutional amendment. * Federal lawyers suddenly laid claim to the offshore lands which state governments had held without dispute for 100 years. The lawyers bypassed both the congress and the machinery of a constitutional amendment and got the United States Supreme Court to rule that the tidelands belonged to Washington. The decision was 5 to 4. The vote of one man, in this nation of 150 million, destroyed property rights that had stood inviolate for 100 years. It is not what is lost, but the manner of its taking. Historically the United States Supreme Court has been the defender of the rights of the states and individual citizens. But today the court is a federal agent. F. D. Roosevelt broke its back, and now it's merely a bench of politically-minded search-and-seizure j. p's. Do you want the record? Just two sentences from a standard reference book, 1952 World Almanac: "Franklin D. Roosevelt: When the supreme court voided his, measures he demanded additional judges of congress. It refused, but resignations soon enabled him to replace conservatives who had op- ' ppsed him." I have been running the record qs written by Roosevelt and Truman, but today's Democratic nominee is Adlai Stevenson, governor of Illinois. What about Stevenson? Is he his own man, free to clean house in Washington, or is he bound to Truman and Truman's policies and friends? Last July President Truman came down to Arkansas, ostensibly to dedicate the Bull Shoals dam, but also to tqlk to young Governor Sid McMath. He endorsed McMoth for re-election, but there was speculation that perhaps the governor wanted something in the event he didn't win. We had that all wrong. Truman didn't come down to Arkansas to give McMath something. He came down here to g«t something from him. It's the governor who names the state's delegation to the Democratic National Convention. Truman was mending fences for his protege Stevenson. The original announcement in behalf of the Arkansas delegation to Chicago said it would vote for Senator Fulbright on the first ballot and then switch to Senator Russell of Georgia. But something happened. Truman passed the word for Stevenson, and the Arkansas delegation switched, not to Russell, bu.t to the man that Truman wonted- And now die President is out beating the bushes far him.

Hope Theaters Purchased by McCord & Co. in 20-Theater Deal With the Malco Firm Amend Proposed Constitutional ment No. 43 (Authorizing Tax for Aid to In- di'stry) Constitutional Amendment IB was adopted by the voters in 1928. It; authorizes an election: if 10 per cent of the owners of real property request it, at which a special tax on city property may be approved. The rate for this tax cannot exceed 1-2 of one per cent (5 mills) of the assessed value ot property. When collected, the revenue is administered by an appointive board of three members who serve without salary. They apply the money ( in a manner so as to secure the' establishment of new industries within or near the city. This special tax, however, can be authorized only by citizens of Little Rock and North Little Rock and collected only in those cities. Proposed Constitutional Amend-: ment 43 would completely rewrite Amendment 18. It states that privately operated factories, industries and transportation facilities are necessary for the development of a community and Cor the welfare of its inhabitants. Any city with a population in excess of 1,750 persons would be authorized to hold an election at which the voters could approve a special tax on city properly. This annual tax could not exceed one per cent (.10 mills) ot the assessed value of all taxable property.

Buchanan A-l tcs well now being drilled three mile; south of Prescott on Highway 1! has passed the 5,700-foot mark ou of the proposed depth of 6,500 feet and drilling is still in the Eagl Mills formation. Officials o£ McAIestcr Fuel Co Magnolia, which is financing th wildcat venture along with John F. McGale, Shreveport, and L. A. Grelling, Tyler, Texas, said that the Eagle Mills was reached at 2,830 feet. By comparison, a dry hole was drilled in the city limits of Prescott about five years ago by George Christopher, Prescott, the total depth of which was 5,257 feet. In this hole the Eagle Mills formation was hit at 2,010 feet. Milton-Crow, Inc., Shreveport, is drilling the well. Pete Wardlow, Texarkana, drilling superintendent, said that aprpoximately 45 bits have been used in the operation thus far and presently a bit lasts about 75 feet. Company officials were unable to say whether they will abandon the well at 6,500 feet if drilling is still in Eagle Mills. The money set aside for this operation was estimated to be sufficient to reach a depth of 6,500 to 7,000 feet. Washington N FA Names Officers The N. F. A.
