Tlia Gasoline 'l\i.\' Excessive taxation, both state and federal, lists l»i!cn tlic in'iiu:i|);il tlieinu of Arkansas K'as and oil i loalct-.s, in ccs- sion al l.illli) Hock tliis week. Thuy will liavr,; no ilill'ictilly in con- vincinjr, (lie iniljlic, which pays tho bill, that tlic auloiiii)l>ile driver is overtaxed. What to do alioul it is another matter. So far as Hie situation in Arkansas is concerned tin; one corlain tliiil"; is that regardless of the fairness or tin- fuiriH'ss of cxislini; taxes on liigliway users, present revoiuies must l>e niain- taincd. Tlie state can all'ord neither to reduce its already inadequate liijjh- \vay maintenaiK'c expeiulilures nor lo jeopardize its highway debt retirement program. The only practical (itie.'lion, Ihurc- fore, is wliethor a less excessive lax rate might encourage consuniplion of Arkansas lax-paki gasoline sull'icieut- ly to maintain the state's income. Governor Fntrcll, addressing the oil dealers convention yesterday, express- • cd the opinion that a lower tax might actually result in increased revenue. There is sound reason to support thai belief: Tiio present lux is :-x> high that il encourages boolleggiiig anil the pnrchase of gasoline in neighboring low-lax states and discourages con- iiui'iiplion of gasoline by those who by circtlnulaiicc or conscience are prevented from evading the tax. Loss of gasoline tax revenue as a result of Hie excessively high rale is particularly greal in Missouri border counties sucli as our own. Tliu existence of a hah'-dozon or more thriving service slalions at the state line, five miles north of here, mosl of them selling more gasoline than any station in Blylhcvitlc, is evidence enough of the IG-S. The high Arkansas gasoline tax is Miverliiiif thousands of dollars of Arkansas money, to Missouri's highway fund. And Ihe loss does nol end there. With it goes the diversion of a great deal of other business, to the detriment of Arkansas ' coinnuinilies near the border and of the stale in general. 11 would be worth while to experiment with-lower rates. Or if that seems impractical under the cil'ciim- slances then certainly there should be adopted a system of graduated tax nones along the borders of the stale to deslroy the incentive for buying gasoline out of (hu slate. OUT OUR WAY I'or a Preference Primary It is to be hoped that tliu Stltte Democratic Ccntnil commit Ice will lake favorable action on I lie lion I bat if arrange for a primary prior to I!K^ rcKi'lstr Demo- cralic primary on Antjust 11. Wilh len candidalL's in the race for governor nnd with crowded fields for a iHi'mber of other ollices il is essential Ihfit some sorl of elimination be held. Ollierwise tins nominees are more likely than not lo be individuals whom tt majority of Ik' Democratic voters of the state wotil.l reject in a straiu'lit-oul conicsl. J. D. Head, chairman of Ihe state committee, lino Riven Initiative approval to Ihe proposul, advanced liy .1. Uruce Streel, Caniden aitorney. In the absence of any slatute providinir for Hiiel) jirocotinrc, however, it appears lhat a preference or elimination primary can only be held with Ihe consent of Ihe candidates involved. The stale committee, .should waste no lime in pulling the mailer before them. 20, Crime's New Nemesis Decision of the Federal Commnnica- lions Commission fo shift ils alloca- tion'of wave lengths, to provide for a country-wide police radio network, certainly oujflil to. lend impetus lo Ihe nation's war oil crime. The new network would be divided into /oner, willi a key relay station in each. With such a national police radio chain, enforcement officials would be able to co-ordinate a liunl for Hecing criminals over several slates. Minneapolis, New Orleans, SI. Louis, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Detroit and Davenport already have experimented with inter-city police radio. Tho important is.tep now, tin: communications commission points out, is for oilier cities ami states to join the movement.
