Wafchburn Tax Failure at Home Has Worked Against State and Citizen County tax assessors of Arkansas reached a creditable conclusion after hearing the state's side of the money crisis explained to their convention in Little Rock this week. They adopted a resolution recognizing — "The fact that property lax assessments nnd assessment records are in deplorable condition in many counties; that grc:\t improvement in the administration ot Ihe general property tax is vitally necessary to the welfare of the state; and that such improvement, can be brought about only through the co-operative 1 effort of our citizenship and corrective amendments to and changes in the constitution and laws of this state." The assessors stuck by their guns, however, in opposing the recommendation of the Joint Tax Revision Committee that their office be filled by a County Selection Board instead of by direct vote of the people. The association statement said this "would constitute an unwarranted invasion of local self-government." It is to be presumed, however, that the assessors agreed with the statp-wide committee's recommendation that the pay and personnel and powers of the county tax office, whether elective or appointive, be increased. And as to "invasion of local self-government", this is only a technical threat. Against this mere threat may be set the accomplished fact that the breakdown of taxation nt the local level has caused "local self-government" to invade the state treasury, reducing it to such straits that it in turn has been compelled to pile double taxation upon the individual citizen. j For instance, under Governor' Ben Lancy, Arkansas was compelled- to disallow half of the federal income tax as an exemption when the citizen files his state income tax return. And under Governor Sid McMath the state found it necessary to take away the remaining half. So today Arkansas' citizens are paying state tax not only on that income which they are permitted to keep but also on tho amount whk'h the;-:, pay to the fed Hope tar WBATHKft emp«p«ur«* ^ High 61 Low 31 54TH YEAR: VOL. 54 — NO. 46 Star at Hop* II**, Pmi 1*27 ConioHdnUd Jan. II, 1*1* HOPE, ARKANSAS/SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1952 . Likewise, the base of the state's 2 per cent sales tax has been steadily broadejicd until today it attempts to cover not merely consumed goods but durable goods which are also taxed under the ad valorem property levy — obviously a double tax. Building materials, when they go into new construction rather than repairs, are a case in point. Purchases of major machinery when made outside the state are v exempt under the terms of the use tax (companion measure of the sales tax); but as chairman of the subcommittee on sales and cigarette taxes, of the Joint Tax Revision Committee, I had to entertain tho complaint of a Fort Smith equipment dealer that the exemptions contained in the use tax but forbidden by the sales tax damaged the business of Arkansas handlers. Obviously justice demanded |. tl that the exemptions of the use tax ' be applied also to the sales tax, but the question of lost revenue if this recommendation were made deadlocked the subcommittee — and we had to pass the question entirely. Furthermore, while the Joint Tax Revision Committee decided at the last to recommend restoring 100 per cent deduction of federal tax- payments when filing state income .returns the committee publicly |" doubted that it 'was practical to do so in the face of a probable loss of 4 million dollars' annual revenue. It was the opinion of many that if we got the proposed property tax reform enacted it would be a good job well done — and that this had to be accomplished before there could be any relief on either the state income or sales tax questions. So while we're talking about the * threat of the state invading "local self-government" let's remember how a non-working tax system at the local level has caused the rights of the state government and the individual citizen to be invad ed, not in theory, but in fact. • Eight thousand types of coal were marketed in Britain before natiortajization of British mines now only eight types are in use. DO IT NOW! HEMPSTEAD MOTOR CO. «&'.!.»'',£ , £&t O'Dwyer Quits, Won't Return to America By ROBERT PRESCOTT MEXICO CITY. (UP)-Witliam ODwyer reached the end of the political road today and began job- hunting in Mexico. The Irish immigrant who rose from a New York city police beat to his adopted nation's second-largest embassy waited hopefully for Mexican business offers as he packed away his diplomatic duds. He was reported to be considering bids ranging from the Mexican movie industry to cattle-raising. As he quit his post as U. S. ambassador, for the first time O'Dwyer admitted publicly al though indirectly that he won't return to New York, where he might be Eummoned to testyfy at crime investigations centering around his regime as mayor. He said he was postponing a planned vacation with his young ex-model wife at the Pacific Coast playground of Acapulco because he still was working on business deals here. But the 62-year-old Irish-American politician gave no details and asked reporters gruffly not to "bother" him until he makes an announcement about his future plans later this month. O'Dwyer's postponed vacation also may have had something to do with vice President-elect Richard Nixon's holiday in that tropical resort. The Nixons, guests on the same presidential yacht where O'Dwyer once was a frequent visitor, let it be known they were not interested in social contact with the ambassador. Nixon vehemently attacked O'Dwyer during the election campaign and gave him the cold shoulder during his official visit to the Mexican capital. O'Dwyer, who refused to resign as ambassador through two years of .demands for his scalp by Rc- tuibllcaiis and Derrtoci-iifcs alike, surprised everyone- by leaving his post voluntarily almost two months prior to the date when ambassadors traditionally offer to retire. O'Dwyer said only that he was quitting "because I wanted to," but friends hinted he wanted to be free to pursue Mexican job pooprtunities. Shover Springs Youth Gets Gift for Club Work A pen and pencil set was presented yesterday by the Arkansas Bunkers Association to James Hob- iH-t Fuller of Shovcr Springs as a recognition of soil judging and conservation achievement. James Hobert was southwest Arkansas District winner and second place scoring individual at the 4-H Club camp at the University of Arkansas al Fayelteville in the late summer. James Hobert has been active in club work for eight years, lie is a mi-mbcr of the 100-bushel corn club and is trying to become a member of the 2-bale per acre cotton club. James Robert attended the state conservation camp at Petit Jean State Park Tor a week in August to train as a junior leader to assist others in the conservation program in cooperation with County Agent Oliver Adams.

Sen. Langcr (R-ND) told a reporter he wants the subcommittee kept alive and is "strongly in favor of continueing its investigation of U. N. employes." Langer previously had declined to state his position, of particular interest because in the new GOP- controlled Senate he will be in line to be chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, parent body of the internal security unit. Langer, one of the two senators who voted against ratification of the U. N. Charter in July, 1945, fought to uphold President Truman's veto of the Internal Security Act written into law in the fall of 1950. During alt all-night Senate session in which a handful of senators made a vain effort to rally support for Truman's veto, . Langer collapsed and was carried from the chamber on a stretcher. His strong opposition to the act raised doubts as to whether he would favor continuance of the internal security subcommittee, set up late in 1950 to police enforcement of the new law and to investigate subversive activities generally. Altogether, the Senate has voted the subcommittee $443,800 for its probes. Its authority will expire on Dec. 31, but Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich.), said yesterday he will introduce a resolution to restore it after the next Congress convenes Jan. 3. Langer is not now a member of the subcommittee and he declined to say whether, as chairman of the judiciary committee, he would take over direction of the internal security investigating unit.

Throughout his stay swarms of warplanes protected him. Not a single Communist plane penetrated south of the Chongchon River, far north of the battle line the Far_East Air Forces said. U.S. Sabre jets tangled seven times with Communist jets during Eisenhower's visit but there was no indication Ihe Reds were trying to bore south for a crack at the U.S. President-cle-ct. Sabre jets, Thunderjcts,, and Shooting Stars were in the air high over Eisenhower on 'round- the-clock patrol sweeps during the three-day visit. When he left yesterday, the jets still were covering his flight. Throughout the long overwater flight to and from Korea, air rescue Supcrforts, each carrying drop- pable motor lifeboats, hovered over the Eisenhower plane. Tho general's plane was never more than 45 minutes from a rescue plane. The Air Force said more than 1,300 fighter planes were airborne on sweep or escort duty during the Eisenhower trip.

Eisenhower promised to give UK- South Korean president's recommendations "careful study and consideration." Rhee said his letter to Eisenhower contained "some suggestions, including some of an intimate nature." He listed these as being among his recommendations: 1. "The stalemate in tho wnr and truce should be ended. Tho present situation is preventing our army from going forward. 'We should drive to the north." 2. "The defense forces of the Republic of Korea must be strengthened. If they are, it will be possible to relieve foreign forces of frontline duty." 3. "If the Republic of Korea forces are sufficiently prepared, strengthened in size and given more equipment, we will not need the U S. Army." 4. "The economic situation in Korea must be stabili/.cd. We are doing our best, but we need help and assistance." Rhee said Eisenhower "agreed that we need both military and economic assistance." fy'Ht The text of Eisenhower's letter in response to one from Rhee released today by the South rcan government but the full „,,„„ of the Rhee letters to the prcjsJS? dent-elect was not disclosed.

The big question was: What does Eisenhower have in. mind? No matter what the answer for the future, however, responsible sources in the outgoing Truman administration conceded Eisenhower's Korean visit scored a big point quickly. These sources noted the president-elect's statement that lie has •'no panaceas, no tricky ways" for solution of the problem, oven while ajso assuring the vjpvld Continued on Page Two First Fruit of Eisenhower's Journey Should Be Unity- Something Lacking Before By HAL BOYLE NEVJpYORK l/n — Gen. Eisenhower's campaign bombshell —his promise to go to Korea if elected President —has been kept. One of the most dramatic journeys of our generation is over. What will be' the results? The final fruits of his visit to the bitter Korean peninsula can be expected to mature slowly. The situation there is too complex to be solved by pulling a rabbit out of the hat, and Eisenhower has wisely warned he has no ready tricks up his sleeve to end the war. The great danger of his voyage to see the facts at first-hand is public impatience, a letdown into dissillusionment. The hopes of man rode with him, and the hopes of some were too high. There was even considerable hysteria in the minds of many mothers, who personally believed that world peace and their sons would follow the general home on the next plane. Eisenhower himself, of course, encouraged no such illusions. His own son is with a frontline division, and he has seen too much service to promise an easy solution to a problem that has battled some of the best military leaders who helped him forge victory in Europe in the last war. The present Eight Army Commander, Gen. James A. Van Fleet, has a son missing in combat in Kora. The U. S. Arrny itself — the career soldiers — suffered a high rate of casualties, particularly in the first six months of the war. The war has now dragged into its 30th month. What Gen. Ike! wanted to do —and now has done) — was to make a personal tour of the battle area, and get the picture of the stalemate there through his own eyes, unprejudiced by prior commitments to any single course of action. U is UQHfcely that any possible measures he feels should be taken will become apparent immediately. In war things don't usually go that way. U requires time and planning to carry out any major decision. Thus it seems highly probably that the war will go on for a while much as it has been for many months, barring the launching of a gigantic offensive by the million man Chinese Red Army. The Korean landscape is forbidding enough in summer. In winter its frozen hills form even more terrible obstacles to widespread offensive operations. But while Eisenhower's journey may immediately disappoint those who built their hopes too high it already has two heartening effects: 1. It has given the troops in Korea a tremendous morale lift. X. It has brought "the forgotten war into the hearts and minds of minions of Americans in a memorable way. For too long it has been a matter of personal concern only to the men who fought there, and their families and loved ones at home. . An even greater result is that it is likely to take the whole question of the conduct of the war out of the realm of partisan politics. Eisenhower is a symbol of victory. He is firmly trusted by most of America's allies as well as by the American people. They have faith in his military judgment. Whatever final course he and his advisers decide should be taken, the average man will probably say: "If Ike says that's the best way, then it must be the thing to do. He was right before." The first fruit of his journey should be unity. That has been sorely lacking in the Korean War.

Government Official Again Indicted WASHIGTON WJ -Jack Cowart, a former Agriculture Department official now in federal prison, has been indicted on charges of taking pay for exerting his of- fieial influence. Ally. Gen. McGrnnery announced yesterday a federal grand jury at nearby Alexandria, Va., handed down an indictment naming Cowart and two others it charged "aided and abetted in the compensation to Cowart." The indictment charges Cowart, 40, received a certificate for 163 shares of stock in the Baton Rougo Warehouse Company, operating n plant near Center, Tex., as compensation for Services rendered the company when he was assistant to the administrator of the Produc tion and Marketing Administration, '-convicted on the charges, the Ihree men could be assessed maximum penalties of $10,000 fine, two years imprisonment or both. The Justice Department gave no details about tiro other two, 1 named as Tom Foster and Jack Motley ol Center, Tex. Cowart is serving an 10-month federal sentence in another case. He was convicted last April on a charge of accepting $1,374.40 from Capital Prefabricators, Inc., of Tyler, Tex., to help it recover a claim against the government while he was a government official. The new indictment is based upon allegations that, while Cowart was an Agriculture Department employe and a stockholder in the warehouse firm, the company applied for and obtained contracts for storing Commodity Credit Corporation goods. Cowart was fired in August, 1951, from his $10,500-a-year job in tho Agriculture Department, which said he accepted money for speeding Capital Prefabricators' $13,743 claim against the government. Cowart claimed then the money was partial repayment of a loan by Charles D. Bridgman, a longtime friend and head of the Texas grain bin firm. Bridgman said the payment was for expediting the firm's claim. During a hearing on the case, Chairman Ellcnder (D-La.) of the Senate Agriculture Committee de^ nounced Cowart as "just a common, ordinary crook."

The report said Brannan re- eieved a tip in 1050 when a Washington attorney sent word Cowart had hinted to a firm, for which the lawyer was acting, that he could help it out of some legal difficulties.
