Saving Public Money '• Some interesting comment is contained in the biennial report of Hownnl Reed, shite auditor, prepared for presentation to the legislature when it meets next week. We have not in mind pm'liculai'ly Mr. Heed's warning that the strictest care must be exercised in making appropriations if the slate's budget is to be balanced. Thai merely reflects ti situation of the existence of which everyone should have long been aware. Of more special interest to us in Mississippi county, and presumably to the citizens and taxpayers of a good many other Arkansas Counties, are his suggestions concerning county finances. It is obvious that our county governments, 75 of them in Arkansas, arc a pretty expensive proposition, and anything pointing toward a reduction of this expense is worth consideration. There has beep some talk of county consolidations. The idea is soilnd, but local pride and the fear on the part of county officers and employes that they may be squeezed off the payrolls present exceedingly serious obstacles to any such program. Mr. Reed makes no comment on this proposal, but he docs point out other steps by which a good deal of public money might be saved. Ho recommends that the office of county collector be abolished, the duties being transferred, to the county treasurer, at an estimated annual saving of over $500,000; lh.1t tax assessors be required to make up the tax books, thus saving 5.100,000 annually paid to elefifsf'ahd that all county officers be placed on n salary basis. We believe all of these suggestions arc EOUPU. The livsl, if \vj arc correctly informed, would require a constitutional amendment, and thus is not immediately attainable. Of greatest importance from the standpoint of economy is the recommendation concerning compensation of county officers, and that is something that can be had at once if the legislature will only act in the interests of the people of tho state. The attorney general has already held that county officers arc limited to $5,000 a year under the fee system, but apparently his ruling is not going to be applied until it has been t; = ted out in court. Tlic legislature in • the meantime could save time and money by enacting a stale-wide salary law, either- fixing the pay of county officers by a scale in proportion to county population or assessed valuation, or leaving the fixing of salaries to tlie quorum courts. Thousand?, of badly needed dollars could be saved flic truiis- ury of this county by such legislation, while for the state at large the total would run close to a million. There is no excuse for delay and there will be no delay if voters of each county and district will put the matter squarely up to Iheir representative!; Jrml .senators. Another recommendation made by Mr. Reed we hope lias no bearing upon Mississippi county. Thnt is that all coiinly ofl'ifcrs be required lo make surely bond, A personal bond, no mal- lei- what the character of the signers, is a mighty I' 001 ' sort of bond, a.s experience has shown. The officer who cannot make a surety bond in a reliable company had best resign his office. Where More Light is Needed Alfred P. Sloan, president of (lencr- al Motors, recently made u remark in ;i radio address thai comes as a welcome relief after the gusli thai so many would-be business oracles have been favoring ns with in recent months. Speaking of the business depression,' Mr. Sloan said: "No one hns as yet been able lo explain, to-the .satisfaction of all, what has caused the conditions which exist. II is to be hoped, however, Unit through evolution and a better knowledge of the facts we shall be able, in the future, to determine the underlying causes of what we call the business cycle. With the real causes established it is reasonable to .suppose that industry, co-operating with 'government, can devise ways and means ... to reduce its severity." It is a wholesome thing to'find a big industrialist stating bluntly that we cannot really remedy matters until we give the whole problem more honest study than we huve yet given it. , JANUARY_ SIDEGLANCES By George Clark «<! g-i.f4i.TlF~ *tf/% V:.f^»f«FV.A H ^¥^AEk ,\ ^rxwt > ^i^ W^T» '?'
