Governor Hays
Appoints England
To Succeed B. \V. Green As Ad
jutant General of State
Special to Independent.
Little Rock, Nov. 7.— The
resignation of Gen. I». W. Green
as adjutant general of the Ar
kansas National Guard was
formally accepted today by
Governor Hays, and at the same
time the appointment of Capt.
Lloyd England of Little Rock
was announced as his successor.1
The reason assigned by General
Green for his resignation is
his advanced age. Up has had
an intermittent sendee of <13
years with the militia, and feels
deeply grieved by the suspen
sion of government funds be
cause of weaknesses in the
Guard organization, and the
failure of the legislature to
make any provisions for its sup
Capt- Englad, who becomes
(den. Lloyd England,, is a retir
ed regular army officer, having
seen an extended service in the
Orient. He is a son of J. E.
England, the Little Rock bank
er and capitalist.
There is a great deal of specu
lation as to the outcome of the
Arkansas National Guard’s
struggle for existence. It is
predicted by many that the re*g
iment will probably be reduced
to six companies.
“The < luard will be smaller and
better than ever," remarked one
of the otlicers. "The inefficient
and careless companies will be
weeded out and those that sur
vive will be established on a
firm basis of regular army reg
ulations and requirements. \
feel sure that we will get the
federal appropriation for the
Guard that is being temporari
ly held up.”
Ma.j. General Haynes, “Father
of the Arkansas State Guard,’
is deeply interested in the late
of the organization with which
he was connected for so many
years, and declares that the bill
for the support of the Guard
was defeated in the legislature
only through the influence of
cheap demagogues who thought
to make political capital of it.
Seven Counties
Adopt Uniformity.
Special to Independent.
Little Rock, Nov. 7. —The
State Superintendent has been
notified of the adoption of uni
formity of text books in the
counties of Renton, Dallas, Iz
ard, Montgomery, Like, Scott
and White count ies. J'his makes
about two-thirds of the state
that has adopted uniformity, un
der the optional law. It is for a
term of six years in each coun
ty, and where it has been tried
once it is very seldom that the
county goes back to the old sys
i tern.
Style is like a shadow. You can point your
finger at it, but you can’t put your finger on
it. It doesn’t shout—it whispers. It aims as
much for repression as for expression. A case in
