WASHBUBN- Arkansas Buying in District Bonds at Good Discount Million Dollars' Cash to Retire 1'/!' Million Bonds p S T ABLISH~M ARKE T Refunding Act Bolsters Values of State's Securities ARKANSAS voters in November will pass on three pro** posed constitutional amendments. Two are thc .so-called "Futrell amendments"; the third is an initiated measure— that is, it was put on the ballot by individuals who circulated petitions around the state. If you believe constitutional law should bc fairly stable and unchanging—-to be changed only after careful examination and debate by competent and unprejudiced men—thcu you will find it fairly easy to formulate a rule about voting on constitutional amendments. Measures that have been thoroughly debated in the legislature and then referred lo tho people, ar c one thing. Measures that have been put on the ballot by interested men through petitions circulated over the stale, arc •.m entirely different thing. The Initiative and Referendum Law 'I. k R.) was a good thing in its original intention, to give the people a check against their legislature. It might havc been a good thing, urthermore. as regards the initiating of individual laws which thc IcRisla- ure for political reasons refused to consider. But when we conic to the point of saying thai constitutional amendments may bc inaugurated by the people without legislative debate and practically without public discussion, then we arc really saying we have reduced constilution.il law to thc irresponsible and temporary condition of a local ordinance. XXX This writer Ix-licvcs Amendment No. 19, prohibling the legislature from increasing taxes without a vote of thc whole people, and No. 20, prohibiting new bond issues except by popular vote, should b c adopted in November. Amendments 19 and 20 were sponsored by thc governor, debated at length by the legislature, and referred lo the people for final action. Thoroughly investigated, they are probably good law, and if adopted will remain in the constitution of Arkansas for years to come. XXX But Proposed Amendment No. 2t— the four-year-term proposal for Arkansas public officials—is sponsored by individuals, has had neither examination nor debate, and never was formally considered by the legislature. This writer believes in thc principle of a four-year term. But we cannot support a constitutional measure which. hurriedly drawn, and utterly devoid of debate, s certain to bs unsatisfactory and to •crjuirc revision at a later date. U th c people were to believe in he soundness of a procedure which -Hows influential private citizens lo virtually create their constitution*'! aw from year to year then they would be turning over the bulwark of their liberties into the hands of thc (cw. Take the newspapers, for instance. LITTLE ROCK— The plan of th? legislature to obtain a large savings for Arkansas through the purchase of outstanding rnad bonds at prices l>o- low par npparrntly is highly succers- ful, officials said Wednesday as the first tenders of bonds were opened and read before several score representatives of bondholders. Arkansas has $970.000 with which lo buy bonds and officials os'ima'ed Hint this amount of cash will retire at least Jl.500.000 in bonds. Savings tn the state will amount to about $fiOfl.OOO In principal and several hundred thousand dollars in interest. Provision Declared Important The state refunding law provides that highway revenue s-hall be ussd lirst to pay opcrat'ng expense* of the State 'Highway Difpfirtnifciil and • to mcot interest ppymenl on Ihe refunding bonds. Surplus above tills amount shiil) lv placed In a pinking fund to bo used to buy bonds nt tho lowest price hid. The law directs that certain percentages of thr sinking fund shall .be applied to by Iho various classes of outstanding obligations. This bend-buying provision is one of the most important features of tho refunding law, Bank Commissioner Marion Wnsson said. He believes it is ono of the principal reasons why thr refunding law is proving successful. Willie market quotations are made on Arkansas bonds, Mr. Wafson said, it is almost impossible to buy such .bonds on the market. Ownership is scattered, he said. The bond- buying provision creates a "market" price for the bonds and has re-established in some measure the state's financial Handing, Mr. Wnsson said.

WASHINGTON—(A 5 )—Attorneys for the Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA) are examining the Bankhead cotton control act Thursday to determine whether it can be suspended for a year, and their report is to be made Saturday at a meeting which probably will determine the action to be taken in the face of the short 1!)34 crop.

Arrest Rumored • WASHINGTON.— (IP) — rjepartmenl of Justice officials said Thursday that - State Stands to Lose LITTLE ROCK. — Arkansas cotton producers will lose the opportunity to realize approximately ?4.820,000 on surplus tax exemption certificates if the Bankhead cotton control act is ended or suspended, it was said by Roy Reid, assistant director in charge of the Agricultural Extension Service, Wednesday. Estimated cotton production in Arkansas this year is about 241,000 bales less than the amount allotted under the Bank,hcad bill, -Mr. Reid said. This clifefrcnce is duo for the most part to jrouth damage. If favoreblc Weather conditions had prevailed, Arkansas probably would havc produced more than the amount allotted, as has been the case in favored sections of the eastern cotton belt, he said. Arkansas Vitally Interested "The insurance feature 'if the Bankhead act is particularly interesting to Arkansas fanners uj id"r condiuins prevailing this year," Mr. Reid said. "As the act now stands, cotton producers will b° entitled to fell their surplus exemption ccrtificalcs a'.id the farmers in areas where favorable .vcather conditions have brought about high yields are expected to buy these certificates. The potential value of the estimated surplus .exemption certificates allotted to Arkansas farmers is about 51820,000. "This opportunity to obtain a return for losses due to unfavorable natural causes and to balance up the income from production between favored sections and those where conditions have been unfavorable is one of the minor phases of adjustment control which has givrn it favor with farmers. The big influence- of adjustment control measures on present price of cotton and cottonseed is accepted as the fundamental purpose of adjustment which now is increasing of unit. returns greatly above previous years." Southwest Would Suffer Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma arc Ihe largo cotton-producing .states which would be affected by increase in individual allotments in other states. Mr. Reid said. The estimated yield in each of these states is below the allotment under the Bankhead act he stated. The distribution of surplus tax exemption certificates from Southwestern states to growers in the eastern portion of th" cotton hell, would be so widely scatlorcd that, no slate would uffcr materially by continuance- of the present, plan, Mr. Reid said. A few producers in Arkansas- who havc had especially favorable growing conditions will have considerable cotton lo market above the amount of thcii allotments, he said. "I strongly lavor the adminislralion i.f the Rankhnad act as it now stands wilhonl change's in the allotment," Mr. Head concluded.
