HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS ...Wednesday, December 7,1988'- Rock Joins fax Revenue Fight 7. Capital City to Participate in Lobby—County Judges Hit LITTLE ROCK—The city council, floundering desperately in an attempt to find needed additional revenue to maintain Its present municipal ser- vfces, instructed its legislative committee Tuesday to work with the Arkansas Municipal League in an effort J\ to, obtain for cities a portion of cer- jjf tatn state taxes. * '•- W. H, Hopson, executive field director, of, the league, composed o£ 135 , Arkansas cities and towns, told the aldermen, that Little Rock's situation is little different from that of many other municipalities hi the state. "The big reason is that the municipalities are trying to give an up-to-date service on an outmoded system of revenue collection," he said. "It has reached a point where apparently there are only two alternatives. One, to go deeper in the taxpayer's pocket Or to go into revenue collected elsewhere. "We have about reached the bottom to the first alternative. Taxpayers will pay just so much to maintain city, county and state governments. Their limit has about been reached. "The truth fe that cities have fallen behind in gettnig their share of the state taxes collected within the cities. to which the cities are justly entitled." Mr. Hopson illustrated by saying that if cities had gotten their share of the additional quarter-cent turnback on gasoline taxes, it would have meant: approximately 560,000 to Little Rock. Contending that cities are entitled to a share of such taxes he said that 30 per cent of the taxes collected «n .gasoline is from traffic on city streets, not including streets that are ' trans-city highway routes. "At the special session of the legislature in March, the Arkansas Municipal League made an effort to obtain a. share of the additional turnback for' the cities. The effort failed and Mr* Hopson expressed belief that the oowerful political machine sponsored by the Arkansas Association of County Judges largely was responsible.

By Olive Roberts Barton "What Will People Think?" Is Seldom Very Important^ Surplus Grapefruit May Be Purplish WESLACO, Texas— (&)— Grapefruit in colors—such as purple—may soon make its appearance on the nation's breakfast tables. Seeking some means of marketing fruit taken out of commercial channels by the Surplus Commodities Corporation, grapefruit growers suggested it would be easy to color it with harmless dyes. Purple was proposed for a trial. "And if this becomes popular with consumers, we may find ourselves with demands from housewives for grapefruit -to match their breakfast pottery sets," one grower commented.

"Now listen darling, I wanted you to have your velvet as much as anyone, but Miss Schultz is sick. She could not finish it and it isn't her fault at all." "I saw her at the window today. She looks all right." "She has arthritsis so badly, she can't hold a neddle. I am worrying about her more than your dress, 1 Mary. There isn't time, or I could do £." "That old ,tulle. What will people think?" repeated Mary. The phrase registered this time with her mother. It suddenly came to her about it now, dear, but you are always saying, 'What will So-and-so think?' Well, I think your own thinking. The very minute a woman or a man starts shaping every act or gesture on other people's ideas, it's just too bad. "The way to do is to stop and say to yourself, 'Am I right?' And if you think you are right, then whaat others say should not be too important. We're all pretty sensitive, of course, and even I like to be n agreement with other epople. But if I did that all the time, I would be nothing but jelly, taking on the mold of the last person I was with. You can't possibly please everyone. You can't be on two sides at once. If you are, then it's a sign of weakness. •'For instance this dress, if you went to Miss Schultz and insisted on her finishing your dress, in her condition, she would be think ing, too. She would decide you were a girl without a heart. She might very possibly mention it to Mrs. Andrews, our neighbor, who is a great gossip. Mrs. Andrews might spread it that you were a selfish little 'brat', and as rfie is a friend of Tom's mother, Tom would hear it. That shows that nothing we do is without somebody thinking something." "Tom wouldn't care. He knows me. Besides he likes me to look nice." Bsidc the Point "Well, we're getting away from the point. The idea is thaat we have to do what seems wisest and best at the time and .not allow 'what .other people might think' to make slaves of us. As long as we are doing our best and being as kind and fine as possible, there will be many misunderstandings. All the 'people' cannot know all the circumstances all the time. Don't let it become your motto, my dear. Live up to your conscience. That's enough. It has been the real secret behind all the great successes of the world. Independence about doing what seems bes!." "That's right," nodded Mary. "I jnuststop being afraid of people. Unless I think they arc right, and I'm wrong."
