F. BYRHS OCTOBER 22, 1948 ;, A SIMPLE proposal to change local option elections trom special to general elections has stirred up an astounding opposition b x the Anti-Saloon League of s Arkansas. r Present law requires a special election to pass . .on th^question of selling liquor, beer and wine in . . any county, city, township, ward, or precinct, when "• fh^ P hnli >e f t ' f Tl are filed -, lnitiated A ct No. 2, oh the ballot at the general election Nov. 2, would i simply require that local option elections shall be . held.on/the regular general election date, which is . always the second Tuesday in November of even; numbered years. r Act No. 2 is just as simple as that, - Ye.t the Anti-Saloon League of Arkansas, in an i advertisement, in these newspapers on Wednesday , charges- that it would completely destroy our present local option law." There is no basis whatever for this astonishing '; Statement m my judgment. Act No. 2 does not in •' yvy°y c £° n ?f the loca ' °P*i°n 'aw except as to '•' .f, tim u ^ f holdin 9 -I!" election. If it is adopted it «- will still be .possiBle 1 under exactly -'the some authority, to bring about an election once in two years as it now is, on the question of selling or prohibiting ;: .sale of liquor, wine'and beer in any political sub, division of the state. The same petition is required ' I uTJ y Ch ?u 96 ' S * ho ? the election W ° U W have to be held on the general election date, when people are voting on other issues besides local option and a vote would be had more truly representative'of a cross-section of the population. Comblnjnq the elections would save the county the cost of a, S r>p :, cial election. v^ ' , ' do not favor prohibition as a method of handling the liquor business. I opposed prohibition when .the question was submitted to the people of ; me -Fort;Smith district in 1946, because I do not ' tfitaKit''!* .the wisest way to handle the problem. ; lido believe the people of any community have the right to decide for themselves whether they want liquor sold in their communities. I think, however, the decision should be made by as many people as can be brought to the polls, so the decision will ; -truly .represent the popular will, I think this act will tend to produce that sort of decision. I know : it:will.save-,the;cost of a special election wherever . the matfer is submitted to a vote. • All the amendments and acts on the ballot have been analyzed in .this,column and a position stated upon each of them. All of them have likewise been . analyzed.by Dr. Robert Leflar, dean of the School ?^k° w , at the University, without any expression of his own opinion about them. He always performs that public service in advance of a general election. Dr. Leflar s conclusion about the effect of this act . ,'f;6.xqctly the same as my own. Here is what Dr Leflar soys abo'ut its effect: "Act No. 2 is one of the shorter and simpler measures to be voted on this November. It would do one thing: provide that local option (liquor) elections be held only at the regular general elections in November in even-numbered years, rather than at special elections called at any time. "This would be the law both as to- 'dry areas seeking to vote wet and to wet areas seeking to vote dry. There would be no change in the present law (initiated Act No. 1 of 1942) under which local option elections may be held in any county, township, municipality, ward or precinct in which a proper petition is filed. "The number of signatures necessary on a local option petition, wet or dry, would remain the same •os now, that is 15 per cent of the qualified electors m the area affected.: Other aspects of the present law would likewise remain unchanged. "In other words, the total effect of the proposed oct would be that local option elections, either in wet or dry areas, could not be held oftener than once in two years (the present law) and the date would f be fixed by law instead of by the county That is clear and conclusive. The Anti-Saloon League is simply mistaken in its charge that the oct would destroy the local option law * LEGAL AUTHORITIES AGREE - * ACT No. 2 EfilS jslOT DESTROY LOCAL OPTION SIMPLIFY AND SAVE — CONSERVE NEEDED COUNTY TAX FUNDS TO COMBAT RISING COSTS.

Arkansas believes in the Four Freedoms. Yet the Fifth Freedom, the freedom of Choice at the polls, is the most precious of all. It is the one protection of all other rights. But in Arkansas you have no choice under the One-Party System. e e e a If your mind is committed to accept only one politico! party, simply because it has been the custom for years, you are not exercising your privilege as an American, the privilege of making a choice at the polls. with blanket commitment by voters in Arkansas to support a single political party, even though its platform and candidates do not reflect their wishes, you are inclined to believe it would do no good to vote otherwise, that you would be in the minority, and your vote lost . . . But, you can have a choice at the polls _ The Two-Parfry System Makes for Better Government The competition for a voter's preference offered by a Two-Party System is the strongest, most effective force working for good government. Its threats act as a check and a discipline on office holder ond political party alike. The possibility of reward or penalty provides an incentive for efficiency, honesty and economy in government. Competition for the voters' preference brings forth each party's most capable men as candidates. An effective, competitive Two-Party System would benefit the .people of Arkansas, whichever party svas in power. Two-Party System Would Place Arkansas In a Commanding Position As fong as the Arkansas vote is package-delivered under the One-Party tradition, little concern can be expected as to Arkansas' possible political reactions when favors or concessions are up for consideration by those in power in the federal government. Remove Arkansas from the "automatic roll coll of the Solid South" and Arkansas will automatically reach full stature as a dominant political factor. Regardless of your party affiliations, it is your duty and your privilege to help establish a Two- Party System to gain for yourself and all Ar- konsans the right of choice at the polls, its vigorous protection, and its vast benefits. Arkansans! The Time Is At Hand! Rally To The Cause! The Republican ticket (Dewel-Warren) is a long odds favorite to win the election. It is the opportunity for Arkansas to win doubly — to gain benefits and recognition for Arkansas from .an administration that has come to 'be aware of Arkansas' contribution and importance to our national life and economy — and to win for Arkansas the advantages of a Two-Party System and freedom of choice at the polls.
