The'other day this scribe received a note from a friend who is interested In the welfare of the Blythcville schoola advising him that passage of a certain bill, designated l>y number, would result in substantial financial relief to Blytheville special school district No. 5. In fact, it was explained, the bill provides for the assumption by the state of more .(him half of the bonded indebtedness of this and ninny oilier debt burdened school districts. That sounded almost too gobcJ to be true,'and.a telegram was dispatched forthwith to Hon. E. E. Alexander advising liim of the splendid opportunity which was his to help cluisc the wolf from the school house door in the old home town. £o far so good—too good, in fact, to last for long. The next day the writer of the above mentioned telegram was asked to sign a petition protesting against a proposal to tax each five cent bottle .of soda water a cent for the benefit of some .school fund or other. He signed, and then, for the first time in a day or."two, he began to think. Had he .wired endorsement of another one of these infernal tuxes? Investigation followed. No, it was not the soda water tax; it was-a proposal to put an eight per cent tax on electric power. We hope it is not too late to send an- othcr telegram. -•• : .v, /-The point is 'this. There is no ques- tion'about the school districts of Arkansas being in a difficult position. They need iinancial relief, and need it bad. But neither is there any (|itcs- tion about a tax on. electric current being just about the worst thing that could be proposed for Arkansas. What this state needs, more thnn almost anything else, is the kind of development that comes with increased consumption of electric current, with cheaper electric current. We arc not going to get it by putting a tax on that current. A tax on electric current sounds like a tax on somebody else, which is always popular. We don't suppose the power companies are very enthusiastic about it. It Will hurt their business, just as any special tax hurts the business to which it is applied, But we are not worried about the power companies. They have a way of taking care of themselves. The important thing IB thut tills tiix, even though the legislature may provide thai rates etmiiot be raised to cover it, is going to be passed on to the consume™ of electric current in this state. If rates cannot go up on account of this tax, they, will stay up on account of it. And industrial concerns are going to think a gaud many times before coming into a state where the very power that makes the wheels of industry turn is taxed, Arkansas has got to stoj) plastering Bpucial liiNtis on every dollar that sticks its luad above ground. Dollars are scarce enough around here anyway. \Ve can't afford to chase them away. W. P. Strait of Morrilton had this to say^ in a letter to the Arkansas Ga/ctte today: "The remedy is not found in a further burdening of property, bubi- ness and Jabor with increased taxes which" hamper the progress and prosperity of the state, but rests rather in Use dirnhmliun of unnecessary and lavish overhead expenses in the governmental fabric, and when this is done additional taxes will be uimcc;s- fiary." Governor I'arnell has a plan to throw a lot of good folks -off the public payroll through reorganization of the state's governmental-set-up. The legislature is giving it the cold shoulder. Some of our statesmen say it is undemocratic, If it is undemocratic to give the taxpayers of Arkansas their money's? worth for what they pay may- lie we could stand a little of it anyway, f A girl In Peru walked 25 miles to sec the Prlnw of • Wales.

Maybe this is a ;sly dig at the number of college men who iiave gone in lor professional wrestling. Judging from the "bulling" ladies thai have developed in wrestling, the bigger "bouelicad" you arc the better. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1-1. 19!

Mr. Webster says -a compromise is "a .settlement reached by arbitration or by consent rfnch- cd by mutual'concessions." The local definition is broad enough to cover any case where one party concedes everything a:ul yet IXM'- suades the other party io admit that the result is a compromise. Puzzle: Who "Coinproniiscil 1 "? Most lately there have been 'compromises" on such matters as the relief of persons starving AS the result of drought, lhe Smedlcy Unt- r court marlinl and the cashing of the soldier bonus certificates.
