However, less than one-third of Ihc 'Ki county quorum courts have appropriated money or made other arrangements (o hold (lie federal primaries. Tlie controversial law was passed as a means of keeping Negroes from votiiif; Jn (he districl, stale and county elections. In a unanimous opinion, written by senior justice Frank O. smith, the court ruled that, "we are not concerned with the wisdom or ij'j- iicy of the legislation." but whether the legislature had the right, to separate primary elections. "The legislature docs have -such a right," the opinion sairi. On the controversial subject .?! who should pay the cost of elections, the court said "no specific appropriation by the quorum court is required to authorize the counties lo pay these expenses. The act has imposed the expenses upon the counties. an<| it will be their ;lniy to dtecharric it." The high court based its ruling on the cost on n recent U. S. Supreme Court, decision following an iinpcai from the Texas Supreme Court. 'flic court opinion pointed out that separation of federal and state primaries iS not a new thine m Arkansas. It said "state and federal elections', yore not consolidated until the adoption of Initiated Act Number Two at the 1926 general election. Thus for more than a half century these elections were separate." Answering charges that the act violates the ISlh amendment ol the U. S. constitution, the opinion iaid "the last sentence of section one of Ihc act (no citizen shall be denied the right to vote in a.ny primary election for the selection of federal offices on any ground prohibited by the I5th amendment lo the federal constitution.) Makes certain the act does not violate the l- r >th amendment." Commenting on allegation that the act is indefinite and that enforcement would be Impossible, uic court said "read by it-self ali!i>. this would be true, but not so when read in conjunction with legislation in force when It was passed." '"Ihc present, state of the law," the court said "is that, political parties are not required lo hold primary elections (<, nominate candidates. They may do so or njt, as the governing authorities of the party may direct. Bui. if a primary elect ioj) i s held, that election is a legal election."
