THE question of putting their business affairs in good I order in placed squarely before the county governments in Monday's decision of the Arkansas Supreme Court. Earlier this month the court had ruled that contractual claims incurred in a year in which the county exceeded its revenue could not be paid out of the revenue of the year following. But on Monday the court went further. It said that this prohibition applied also to statutory claims—and that order struck out the unpaid claims of the circuit court. That is our record in local government: First financial stringency; then bankruptcy; and finally paralysis of the very machinery of " stice which guards human life and liberty and property '..Ufu It is the gravest crisis thnt has ever «? llw ' < (-.-confronted this generation of citizens.

After the World war he- l.iimdu-d on a scries of long journeys which took him to every corner of the earth and to almost every part of the British empire.

After a typical ticker-tape New York welcome, he wont to Washington and .spent a half hour wrth the invalid President Wilson, climbing the stairs to the second-floor bedroom where the Mrickcn president lay. Then he went on lo Canada and bought tho great ranch there which he has operated ever since, frequently .sending to it blooded stock from his English farms in an effort to improve Canadian stock raising. In 1920, the prince visited the West Indies, went through the Panama Canal and on to Australia and return. In 1921 came a trip to India, China, nnd Japan, with return via Borneo.

Townsend Plan Is Flayed by Experts Tax Would Be Insufficient, and Would Destroy Prices and Wages CHICAGO—Point by point, the Townsend scheme for a monthly pension of 5200 for all persons over 60 was dismantled and condemned on every score ii> o . paper, "The Economic Meaning of the Townsend Plan," prepared by 21 professors at tho University of Chicago and released over the week-end. All the professors are experts in economics, taxation, public welfare and public administration. The report shows by statistics that money to finance the scheme, even under the revised McGroarty bill, cannot possibly bu raised. It declares that administrative problems raised by the plan are insoluble and that instead of putting money into circulation,it would curtail busnicss, depress wages, raise living costs, deepen the depression and probably ruin the money standard. Its tax provisions are criticized as inequitable, and its social security provisions attacked as unsound. The main body of the report disposes of the Town.-end plan under five headings. The first described money-raising aspects of the scheme, the transaction tax, as a "delusion." "Even without any shrinkage of transactions below the present level, the tax would scarcely yield enough (o pay $75 per month to 7,000,000 persons-much less than $200 to 10,000,000 —and transactions woidd shrink greatly if taxed at 2 per cent," the report (lectures. '"Jin. 1 tax would constitute a very :iil)stantiul burden, unough to exert a strong upward pressure on living costs uid a .strong downward prussuro on farm prices, and wages," point No. 2 declares.

The tribur.al suggested that county judges budget their finances so as to assure having funds for holding court. The decision reversed a ruling ol Circuit Judge Dexter Bush at Texarkana, who had previously held that court expenses must be paid even though the yearly revenue had been consumed. The court upheld a J15.000 judgment given Glen Carmical, of Hope, against the Hobbs Western company. Carmical'* arm was amputated at a Texarkana hospital in 1934 after cross- tics carried on a Hobbs Western truck struck it as the truck and CarmicaTs car passed. Affects Hempstead Monday's supreme court decision will ha.yetl.ie effect of outlawing a quantity of statutory claims;' to cover. which there was insufficient revenue in Hempstead county last year, but The Star was unable to reach County Judge H. M. Stephens Monday afternoon in time for a statement. Tlie judge has estimated that creditors of the county government will lose between $4,500 and $5.000 in claims on file December 31, 1935. The supreme court outlawed contractual claims in a decision earlier this month, and Monday's decision on statutory claims is regarded as completing the outlawing of the entire amount of the county's overdraft—although this can not he confirmed until the judge makes a statement.

Smith ncarcd a battle point over the week-end with a counter-attack set for Tuesday. Smith's speech before an American Liberty League dinner audience Saturday night left unanswered the question whether he would go beyond his indicated intention of taking a "walk" during the campaign and work for a deep party schism, or whether his position alone would result in this end. There was no question here, but that | Smith's charges of Socialism, his snap at "Washington or Moscow." and his assertion that his erstwhile friend, the oresident, had thrown most of the 1932 Democratic platform "in the waslcbaskct" would draw a retort.
