It shouldn't be that way—but it is. , I have Attempted from time to time the last three years to show the tetiffic punishment the state is absorbing at the hands, of the county judges, who. draining off the highway department's revenue at a rate which has now reached three million dollars a year, have made impossible any reduction In the auto license, fee. * The bonded state road program is sustained by the gas oline tax and the Sale of licenses. Obviously, one can be re dttced only as the other makes up the deficiency. In the natural course of events the increased sale of gasoline Would not only have covered the bond payments and new construction, but would in all probability have given Arkansas a cheaper license plate. Bui; local politicians wouldn't leave a good thing alone. From all/over seventy-five counties they went trooping off to Little Rdck and "worked" on the legislature. Whenever the state sought to sell bonds to build roads these coun- ;y autocrats demanded their "cut"—not to build roads, but ;o mend political fences down narrow country lanes whose quagmires have been perpetually impassable from" one winter 'o another. Into this quagmire the State of Arkansas will have poured three million dollars this year. Hempstead county's scheduled share is forty-five thousand. No county roads, no engineers, no systematic planning—nothing but the brutal waste of public funds which with good luck might have afforded Arkansas a New Year's present i n lowered 'auto licenses. • &\ Collecting War Debts «*«. j~j * niembers of Congress, according to tttrent advices froni Washington, are resolved that there be no revision of war debts, They are praitically agreed that the one-year morator- > •» - ^/ atlfi l d> but they b PPose any extension of it and they '!^°lS V0 . r F* esident Hoover's proposal for a re-creation of ( debt Commission. vt»l««?^l- COnn !; cti ° n li a few P ara £ ra P h s from an article by , -rraiuc H. himonds in the December Review of Reviews are 'worth reading.

Nearly a year ago Governor Parnell proposed to the legislature a Farm-to-Market highway program which would have constructed good local roads in every county under the supervision of the highway department's engineers -and a local county commission. The program was sound, but it contemplated incr&wing the gasoltee tax from 6 to 6 cents a falldn, with no reduction in auto licenses. I opposed it,Nearly every editor in the state did. Hefts Is what I wrote in this newspaper January 22, 1931 : The m*r believes in gewd local rdsdii. It KM wtillng . editorials in favot of sonie such program as the governor outlines, for a long time, fiut we have two objections to the fin- ner In which Parnell would carry It but. v •i* ^t^,^* placc ' Arkansas already has accent gasoline, tax-the hlftasst, with two e*cepUons, of any »Wte in the Union. It Is u$o early In the retirement of the gasoline rtbte issue to ask v s./or a rettucilon, but certainly, the fax ought not to go higher. Automobiles ate no longer the plaything of the rich. They are used by the common peopfe, and the people ought not to be penalized? by a prohibitive tax. We think 6 .cents a gallon for gaso- r- luie is a prohibitive tax. - Furtheftndfe, It la time the state goyernment brought down the price of Its motor license tags to the prevailing schedules In . states around us. An Arkansas car standing alongside n Texas car of the same make and model pays almost twice ns much for . annual.lleense.. , , ' s _We understand, of course, that both the gasoline tax rcvnuc and the license fees are pledged for retirement of the highway note Issue. -But it should be possible, with the increasing consumption of gasoline in the state, and the growirlg tax revenue, to offer a reduction in the cost of the annual license. We don't mean any slight reduction— it ought to be cut in half. The legislature rejected the governor's program. But right behind him came the County Judges association and demanded, and obtained, a ,6-cent gasojine tax for the sole purpose of replenishing their local treasuries and paying themselves a big salary increase. County Judge Higgason called me up on the telephone about .5:30 p. m. last Tuesday, December 22. and talked until nearly 6 o'clock about some of the things I have been printing in this newspaper. He objected to my language. He said my judgement was bad. He didn't think I was fair to him. But he had little to say about the facts I have given the public. The judge said he was going to publish a statement the next day, Wednesday, December 23. But I asked him one question point-blank "Did you, or did you not, attend a meeting in Little Rock last winter when the County Judges association was lobbying to get a 6-cent gasoline tax through the legislature?" I asked him that question, and now I am sorry — for he never has brought that statement he promised. — W.

Miss Joyce Dudley, who is teaching in Des Arc, is spending the holidays with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Dudley, at their Rocky Mound home.

Yet it's a sure thing that by this time just about every member of our army of unemployed is bulletin bored. Twenty-three countries have abandoned gold standard. About the only thing gold will be good for pretty soon is bridgework. And 1 that's no biting remark. But of course the United States not cross its bridge before it comes to it. At least not without asking Ely Culbertson's permission. When his wife,did not appear with him at a social function, London's lord mayor explained she'was 111, caused by a "ghost" in the castle. But maybe it was only'a skeleton in the closet. . . W nMonda birthday ' Decoration day, and Labor day, all f Our Government W ITH only 150 years of history, George Washington's government is the oldest extant." • ^ Thia interesting 1 fact is recalled to the public this week in the current issue of the Daughters of the American Revo- Jutaoji s official bulletin. It gives food for thought. - All other governments have changed in some form dur- nig the past150 years. Many have changed within the past gO years, m the past 10. While America is no "new country," her ideals of government still are what they were when it was founded. It may be that we are in a transition period ourselves ttiat we have strayed in example far from the first ideals tfcat have held us fast for the past century and a half It pay be that simple comparisons will revive the faith of our fathers and that the United States will continue the "and of the free and the home of the brave" to a newer and greater destiny. But there are menaces. ^ Nothing creeps so silently upon a nation as does oppression, curtailment O f the people's liberties. A newspaper 'correspondent writes that the Japanese have gone simply made about baseball. The Chines probably wish they'd make a home run.
