Yc-tors Likely to He Misled in Votting
On Amendment No. 14.
Managers Confident.
Little Rock, Nov. 3.—Although the
Amendment No. 14 expressly limits
the levy of road tax to three mills
and provides specifically that no ad
ditional tax for road purpose may he
kr ied in excess of the three-mill levy
it became evident last night that the
an.'fndment \y,ill go before Arkansas
voters hearing a captticn which says
it is an amendment permitting an in
crease in the road tax. Attorney
General Wallace Davis, whose auth
orization is necessary before a change
may he made in the capttion of the
amendment as it appears upon the
ballot, and who conferred yesterday
with Secretary of State Earle W. Hod
ges. concerning the caption, last night
said that he had nothing to say cn
the matter.
Asked if the caption would rema'n
as it now appears upon the hallo\ Mr.
Davis repeated that he had nothing to
say. Mr. Hodges said last night that
he had no legal authority to make
a change as this is a matter that
comes within the jurisdic'ion cf the
attorney genera'. Mr. Hedges said
that if lie were instructed by the at
torney general to make (he change
he would do so, but net otherwise
l Friends of the amendment say that
l while the caption on the ballot does
not in any sense express the purpose
of the amendmen, there is no legal
way to compel the change.
A. W. Parke assistant campaign
manager for the measure, said that
while the measure is under a heavy
handicap, he is confident that a suffi
cient number of the voters to insure
i*s adoption know its purpose and
will not be misled by the caption.

They like its po
most powerful lotv priced car.
Everybody concedes its beauty.
It wins on economy.
But its roomy seats, deep upholstery
. and easy riding cantilever springs—
These things make it so amazingly
comfortable that people can hardly
believe their senses.
You wouldn’t think that a small, light,
economical, low priced car could be
so comfortable.
Bilt come in and let us prove it to you.
