The Election Boards While tliu Republican' parly, except in a few counties, is .1111 insigmllcanl factor in Arkansas politics, there is justice in the protest of its loaders against the way in which the state board of election commissioners selected the minority representatives on comity election boards. , Despite action of the legislature in eliminating the requirement that no more than two members of a county election board be of the same political party the state board wisely followed the practice of placing one Republican on each comity board. LSul in many instances, instead of accepting the man lecommemled for the post by the Republicans, it permitted the dominant Democratic organization to name the Republican as well as the Democratic members. v Wo are not concerned lest this, pro. cedure result in injustice to any He-, publican who may seek 'office .at the ' hands of the Arkansas electorate. It is\gl iiecessmi'^lo.stwt.-elc^tioiis from Re'piibjican candidates in'this state.'But' 7 there is'reason for concern when tiic machinery for the conduct of elections is plflccd completely in the hands of any one faction or group. In so-called "machine" counties the result of failure, to give the, Republicans real representation on the election board i.s simply to place full control of elections in the hands of the Democratic organization, which is quite a different tiling from ' the Democratic voters. ; : The real fault, of course, lies not in the failure of the state commission to - heed the demands of the liepnbliciHi organization, but in its appareiit^willing- ness to let the Democratic organixa-' tions in numerous counties dictate appointments. The;duly of comity election boards is simply to see that elections are fairly and honestly conducted. Such boards should lie made up of reputable citizens, free from selfish interest in the fate of any candidate or faction. The last way to achieve that result, il seems to us, is to consult with the practical politicians of the various counties with respect to such appointments. Why does Governor I-'utrcll, who is a member of the state board of election commissioners, lend a hand to such perversion of I he election machinery? We don't know the answer to that one but for what it is worth' offer Uie opinion of a local man who knows the governor pretty well that Marion Futreil has come to a realization that rescuing Arkansas from the clutches of'her professional politicians is too big a job for him. Tables Are Turned Talks about financial policies usually makes pretty dull reading. Nevertheless, a glance at a few dollars-aml-cents figures helps one to understand one of the most difficult features of the whole recovery problem. The Monthly Survey of Hiisiiiess issued by the American Federation of Labor shows that the government, rather than private business, is now carrying the major share of thu load of putting idle money to work. In 1929, business men burrowed nearly $12,000,000,000 from member banks of the' Federal Reserve, and put the money to work; the federal'govern- ment, at the same lime, borrowed $<!,000,000,000. Now the figures are reversed. This year the government is borrowing $9,006,000,000, while loans to business amount to only $5,400,000,000. In other..words, mouoy which goes to produce new. wealth has been cut in half—and unless the government borrowing brings about business recovery, the money it is spending will not create enough wealth to pay oil' the debts which the governmenl Is incurring. You can place your own construction on the exact lesson to be drawn from these figures.-..Whatever conclusion you reach, you will at least find them extraordinarily significant. A Child Is Born A child js born to Prince Humbert of Italy and there is great jubilation among the people. To ho sure, there would IKIVO Ijeen greater rejoicing had the Crown 1' Made Jose given l>i«'th lu ii boy, but even a -girl is acceptable. The event j»-itself'would seem to mean very little to democratic Americans. The glamour of royalty, to the average lierson in the • United States, is confined tq the'imiij?iiiatioii,.and that nt times isn't strong enough to cull up any more than casual interest, ' But there is much firmer foundation 'for' joy among tho populace of Italy than thu mere fact of tlie birth, ur a people's love for its hereditary rulers. It's the encouraging news that, in many Italian cities, free birth cradles and clothing will be given to all needy families, in honor of the event!
