"The South has suffered wiin
Jiiteriority,' Goveroiir Arnall says.
"The aveiage American annual In*
Cuine at the time of Hearl Harbor
was SOH. In the Suuth it was $314.
The avfiage Negru income was
considerably luwer. No plan to cure

"The so-called race questicn is

this distorted so-called race prob
lem Onl» the demagogue tries to
make political capital of social

Governor Arnall predicts that
once the South becomes "Rennine-
ly prusprruMS, so that there is eco
nomic opportunity for every clti-
len. white and black, the two races
wtll live on friendly terms" He
then charges that the South's low
income is res|)onsible for scjualid
housing, liiadequtue diet, the dis
ease and high mortality rate of
the Negro citisen.
The Georgia governor calls ex-
Govfmor Kugene Talmadge. whom
he defeated a' the polls, a 'dicta-
tci" and '*more than anything else
a labblr louser," and declares that
"the south has at times given the
rest of the country reason tu think
uf sonie of hei governors as clowiu
jiul uf sume ot hei legislaiuies as
Juiiiliiatej tjf chailatans ana seals

The Georgia legislature he re-
cjiN, took dictatorial powers fik.m
(he guVeriU'i, hilled the "panl’j!i
racket. ' refuiined the "infamous pri
son system," and gave suffrage tu

days of his administiatiun, and lie
predicts that Georgias forthcom

"It Isn't good to hear (he screams
(gainst abolishing the pull lax," he
(avs. "coming from the politicians
wlio are afraid that the men uvei-
eas fighting for their right to
scream niay vote the amount uf sine-

In denouncing "lazy government
in the Smith, Governor Arnall points
to the long fight aguimst high freight
rates in the South us set by the In-
erstate Commerce Commission.
When the ICC declined to lower the
high rates, year after year, he
charges, "our officials shruggiKl
Iheir shoulders, exhibited the palms
of their empty hands and in too
many Instances went buck into their
dozings."
Co\*-rnor Arnall recalls that the
I U. S. Supnine Court, i.t his request.
I lias agreed to sit as a jury to lis-
' ten to the State of Georgia argue
ithr* the high and discriirvinutory
' freight rates are depriving the
