Little Rock, Oct. 26.—Operation of the state's primary and secondary highways as state projects under the jurisdiction 01 the State Highway De partment, is the major change in the highway laws decided upon for recom mendation at the meeting of the gov ernor's honorary highway commission yesterday. The meeting was not of the entire commission, but of the Advisory Com mittee and was called by Col John R. Fordyce of Hot Springs, commis sion chairman, to receive and discuss the reports of the various subcom J mittees. Colonel Fordyce presided. Following an entire day of discus sion on various phases of the road situation, a committee consisting of J. F. Loughborough, W. B. Smith, W. T. Gray and R. C. Limerick, state high-! way engineer, was appointed to draft a skeleton highway bill for discussion j at another meeting of the advisory; committee November 13. The bill will j embody the outlines of the plan for state administration of roads, finances,! etc., and it is expected at the Novem ber 13 meeting tile final plan of the j hill can lie prepared foil submission to i tile governor. If the governor ap-j proves the bill, it will be submitted to j the next legislature as an administra-. tion measure. Would Abolish Districts, Taking over by the state of the pri- 1 mary and secondary roads, which are the main arteries in trans-state and interstate travel, would carry with it the abolishment of the improvemen, | district plan on these highways, al- ^ though the district system would not be changed for the smaller county j roads. Members of the commission il lustrated the meaning of the change , by pointing out, as an example, that under the proposed new plan a pri- i mary highway would be constructed.! maintained and administered as a I single state project instead of half al dozen projects, one district in each | county traversed, as at present. For this purpose provision must be made to divert into the highway fund revenues sufficient to carry on the work of building, repairing and main taining generally, and details of this were left to the drafting committee. No method of raising revenue for road work was, decided upon and this ques '.on will lie left open until the No vember meeting. However, a resolu t;on offered by E. B. Shuman of th> local branch of the Federal Road Bu reau, was adopted, recommending that funds derived from the districts on | the primary and secondary system be placed under jurisdiction of the High way Department. This would create a constant fund, Mr. Shuman said, which would qualify the state road system for participation in federal aid. *.>,000.000 Is Needed. While no definite approximation was reached of the annual amount re quired to carry on the state's road program, $3,000,000 was discussed tentatively. The automobile tax yields about $1,945,000 annually, and it is estimated that the gas tax win bring the total to about $3,000,000. Federal aid may yield another $1,000,000, leav ing $1,000,000 to he raised. This mat ter will be worked out at the next meeting, following the report of the drafting committee. ( VSINL SKT AT LIDLOH TEST "*11 Test Sand at Vpproxiniatel.v j !7(M) Foot Love!. Foreman, Oct. 27.—Casing has been set at tiie Ludlow test for (tie purpose of testing a sand which lias been reached at a depth of approximately 17IK) feet. This is being done in keep ing with the policy of the promoters in testing every sand which they en counter, so as not to pass up an oppor tunity of bringing in a well. While they are not unduly optimistic over the outcome of this test, they are of the opinion that they are in a sand that carries either oil or salt water. If the test proves to be salt water sand they will resume drilling until another sand is reached, with the ultimate hope of finding the licpiid gold.

Ford, president of the! Ford Motor Company , Detroit, a gen eral reduction of $50 a car has been made in the prices of Ford Model T and the Ford 1 Ton Truck, effective October 17th, "The revision in prices,” said Mr. Ford, “is the result of the increased volume of business which our com pany lias enjoyed during the present year, and also, to the fact that we now own and operate many of our own sources of raw material, which enab les us to continue increasing the I quality of our product and at the same i time keep the price so low that Ford cars are in reach of everybody. "Our production for 1922 is already in excess of a million, which lias been an important factor in bringing down costs. Our present daily output is averaging better than 5,000 Cars and Trucks, which means a complete Ford Car or Truck ever 5 1-2 seconds of each eight hour working day. It is in anticipation of this continued de mand that price adjustments are again being made in order to keep in eft'i fect the policy of selling Ford pro ducts at the lowest prise consistent with quality. Quality, as usual,” said Mr. Ford, "will continue to be a prime consider ation in the building of Ford cars. As our business has increased wo have constantly increased our equip-1 ment and manufacturing facilities, so i that this price reduction merely re flects the progressive methods which come as a result cl' increased volume. “This reduction, which is the sixth since March 1920, brings the price of the Ford Touring car from $575, the price in effect early in 1920, to the present extremely low level of $298. which is nearly 50 per cent less. Cor responding reductions have been made on all other types. * The new prices by types follow: Touring, no starter .$298 Roadster, no starter . 269 Chassis, no starter . 235 Coupe, starter . 530 Sedan, starter . 5951 Truck, no starter . 3S0 i -0 Ford Day Saturday.

EDISON SEES WONDERS ‘‘Wizard” Views Some of the Latest Electrical Inventions. Schenectady, N. Y., Oct. 25.—The two foremost men of the electrical world met today in the laboratories of the General Electric Company, where they saw what other men, fol lowing their guidance, have done to make the lightest and mightiest forces of nature the increasingly efficient slaves of their former slave, man. In honor of Thomas A. Edison, who was visiting tlie laboratories for the first time in many years, Charles P. Steinmetz demonstrated the destruct ive force of bolts of his artificial lightning, tearing wood asunder with it and disintergrating metal. To the Edison invention of the in candescent light, tiny wires white hot in glass inclosed vacuum, the scien tists here told him, are owed the im mense progress along many of the lines he was shown today. He was shown means of utilizing liquid air the coldest thing known, and a fur nace which contained a heat of 5,500 degrees. A mecury boiler, which is more ef fective than steam, at a great saving af coal, the vacuum tubes that recent ly took' the place of immense alternat ors in sending wireless msesages across the Atlantic; the Pallo-phone, hat is to perfect speaking movies were among the things shown to him. The Pallo-photo-phone is a device by which the movie film is passed before a sensitive electrical appliance that generates varying electric motive force, according to the amount of light that falls On it. This force is trans mitted to ordinary loud speaking radio phones and the speech or other sounds are produced at the time the action in the picture call call for them. This device will make movies audible. The inventor is C. A. Hoxie. From the contemplation of these de licate devices, Mr. Edison went to the inspection of the shops where huge turbine engines and generators are made. There he saw machinery for driving a battleship, as well as that which in a single unit would preduce enough light, for a city of 200,000 per sons. Mr. Edison was like a pleased boy: -o Election Proclamation t Notice is hereby given that on Tues day, November 7th, 1922, there will be held a General Election in Little Riv er County, Arkansas, at the designated polling places in the several voting precincts in said county, to-wit: Arkinda township, Arden township, Burke township, Caney township, Cleveland township, Franklin town ship, Jackson township, Jeff Davis township, Jefferson township, John son township, Little River township, Lick Creek township, Red River town ship, Richland township, City of Ash down.
