Where II Is Unfair Our good friend and neighbor, Editor Sam Hodges ot the Osceoln Times, fails to give consideration to all of the facts on which the Chickasawbn district's complaint-against the new county .highway turnback law is based when lie describes the law ns fair to all parts of this county. If tlie thing would •.work out as he outlines it in the cdi- ' torial reprinted elsewhere on this page there would be little cause for dissatisfaction. The trouble is that there is no guarantee that it will work out that way. .The law requires that the turnback to the counties from the extra one cent gasoline tax, and from 12 1-2 per cent of'state highway notes and bonds sold other than bonds sold to retire note issues, shall be used first of all to pay 75 per cent of principal and interest, .maturities of road improvement district bonds sold since 11127. Such maturities for the Oscaola district will be §75,000 this year, according to information obtained from the county auditor. This m&ms that of whatever money Mississippi county receives this year from the turnback, 75 per cent of $75,000, or $56,250, must . 550 to these Osceola district road improvement districts. The highway commission estimates that this county will .'-receive a turnback of $80,000, which would leave about $30,000 at the disposal of the county judge for use on county roads outside road improve• merit districts. If. the judge s;t)Y lit to use dl of this, together with.four- fifths', or thereabouts, of'all'the'other county road revenue, in the Chickasawba district, he could give this end of the county an even break on county road funds. 13ut there is no assurance that the county judge would do this. Neither is there any assurance that the turnback will reach $8G,000. That figure is merely an estimate of the stale highway department. If the, gasoline tax fails to produce the expected revenue, if bond sales are smaller than anticipated, the turnback will be IESS ihim 586,000. Furthermore, while principal and interest maturities of Osceola district road bonds am only $75,000 this year, $73,000 of that amount ir, interest, and when the principal begins to mature on more of these bond issues the figure will run a good deal above $75,000 per year. We do not want to thi'ow any monkey wrenches into the turnback plan, which is a good thing. Fairness demands, however, that the law he amended to provide that in counties having more than one court did! id tlie turnback shall be divided between those district^ on the saniu basis as it is divided among counties. Such an amendment would guarantee As far as possible that every part of this and every other county would receive its just share of the money which residents of all communities in the state are taxed to provide. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark As Our Neighbors Sees il Some complaint has Iwcn made thai Hie new ens tax. provided for In » bill recently passed by tire slat:: legislature and that will probably he signed by Governor 1'arncll before this nrtl- cle Is printed, Is cllbcrlmlnatovy In its provisions and that the Osccola District of Mississippi county will profit ut the expense ot the Clilcka- snwba District. It lias been said that new improvement districts in (lie OEc-.'ula DMrlct imvc expended many hundred!! at thousands of dollars building good gravel roads, icuWrte of the slate highway system); and lhat but little building of llii:i kind has been tluno In the Chlckasnwba District. :t 1ms teen sr.icl further that n large portion ot the monies received from this extra one cent per gallon gaiollne tax will BO to pay for the road bonds In the Osccola District and Hint but little will be left to be spent. In the chickasawbn District. If this were true it would be unfair but we arc advised that this Is not the cnsc. We understand that there tire approximately $1,200,000 of road bonds outstanding in the Osceola District mid their present maturity is about $60,000. The Act referred to provides for payment of three-fourth:; of these maturities out of llic gasoline lax money. This will amount to about $45,000. According to estimates made by the State Highway Department the amount ot money allotted to Mississippi county us n whole will bo about $80,169 for Oils year. This would leave a balance of about $41,11)0 to be spent ( tinder the direction of the. county Judge, In the Chick- nsawba District, or wherever H Is proper and fnir to spend It. The three-mill road lax and oilier road taxes are expected to produce about $50,000 yearly In this county und this amount would be Increased to $01,000 by adding the money received from the gasoline tux. This money could be used on the urn-bonded reads of the entire county, favoring neither of (he districts at the expense of the other. The fund known as" the "turn-back'' fund, money returned to the county by the state, lent year amounted lo only $23,000 while the "turn- back" fund Ihls year will amount to approxl- mately $80,180. Mississippi county is the filth largest beneficiary of all the 75 counties In the state. i'uluski, Union, Jefferson and Sebastian counties would receive larger amounts than this county. Sebastian county leading Mississippi county by a slender margin. If our understanding of the New Ons Tax is correct, both the Osccoln and Chlckasawba Dis- Irlcls will greatly profit by Ihe provisions ol the New Law. Neither district need necessarily be favored and neither of them should be favored. They should both get a smmre deal and we are sure that Ihls will be satisfactory nil concerned.—Osceola Times.

Women know that shrewd management and good taste are not matters of chance, but qualities to be cultivated—personal qualities that depend upon a thorough knowledge of style and value.
