Looking Toward 1932 As this is written it is certain that the voters of the country have administered an impressive rebuke to the Hoover administration—very po-.-ibly to the extent o.f placing control of both houses of the national congress in the hands of the Democratic party. Whatever the final returns may show the burden of responsibility upon Ilia parly's .national leaders has been greatly increared. Upon the way in which they acquit themselves in the next two y;ars will ckpeml in a large degree the outlook for national Democratic success in the presidential election of 1932. One fact, k>njr known but greatly emphasized by the results of yesterday's election, is that the prohibition issue is loaded with dynamite for both political parties, but particularly for the Democrats, because it is in that party that the greatest extremes of opinion on both sides of the question seem to be concentrated. There is no use trying to conceal the fact that Democratic victories in ,-uch states as Massachusetts, Now 'York, Ohio and Illinois were in substantial part wet victories. It is equally well known that a large part of the party, particularly in the south, is dry. Whatever the Democratic record in the two years before the 1932 election, the party will be heade.l straight for another failure, if not for destruction, if its leaders fail to rcco'gnize that the prohibition question is not an issue between the Republican and the Demo- **VflJK^>l>* - * cratic parties. There are certain things on which tho Democrats of this country are in substantial agreement. Prohibition is not one of them. The party's platform for 1932 should state the principles and program of the Democratic party, not of any faction of the party. A constructive record for the next two years, a presidential candidate in whose ability and integrity, regardless of his prohibition views, nil members of the party have confidence, and a policy of leaving the prohibition issue to bo fought out in the primaries in th? various state, where it belongs, are the essentials of success in the next national election. The foundation has been laid for a RyiLLfi, (AHK.)__CpUUI_E!l__NKWS_ OUT OUR WAY return of Ucmoci-iilk. 1 irovcnunuiil. N'uw is not the time for dissc'iiUon among Democrats.

Tim vole on tlie lnUer, the highway commission amendment, apparently is clo-v. If thiwf imliriiUoiis aru L-onlirnu'd in tile compli tc retuins llic voters ol Arkansas have imkfil iloiu- an imporl- ai)L pk'ce of work.

The apparent, victory of the seven taxpayers association amendment:;, and the defeat of the hiuhway conimi-sion juopo.sfil, alfoi'd tl'.e Ije^t kind of an answn- (o (he "kill "email" propaganda circulated by the slate administration. The voters of the stale shown! their ability to discriminate between the good and the bad of a long and complicated list of is,-tics. Tilt Courier News nrgnl an.I now welcomes the defeat of !he highway eonimission proposal, but we think the state administration and the commission should read in the large vote polled for a self-eviduitly unde-irable change in the highway organization a warning against too dost a tie-up between politics and highway building. The desperate fight of the commission and the administration to neat Amendment lit) ctrhiin'.y gave rise lo misgivings on the part, of many wiio did not approve of the proposed change. The income tax is io be retained, which we think i.^ all right since Amendment 21 takes away from the legislature t'ne light to increase jt without consent of the people. Adoption of the other act vole.! upon yesterday, that providing for compulsory reading of (he bible "without comment" iir the public schools of the state, strik:.* us as a picw of fooli-h- ness, but not one thai can do any serious harm. School 'children are not going to get much out of the reading of a few passages of the Bib!c each day, when comment or explanation of any kind is forbid d'ni, hut if properly done there i> little reason to fear it will hart them—unless the reaction should be simitar to Hint sumetimcs found to the compulsory reading of literary masterpieces—the inculcation of a rather deeply rooted distaste. 1930 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark j tlis cjrecls of the glands of Interiml , secretion.
