Let the Legislature Hear • Jlell Brooks, secretary of Uic Chamber of Commence, was busy on the .Jong distance telephone Friday mid ; Saturday sounding out sentiment of business and civic leaders throughout the shite on the pi oiw.sed Arkansas saleij ta\. What he learned is intereslinjj. In perhaps a scoic of calls, reaching of the nnpoitant business cent- el's of the state, he found only one mau who cxpic.sscd himself in favor of d ialci (a\ Hlost t)f the rest, declined their communities strongly opposed to the proposal and ready to co-opcialc in anv piogram to combat it. Nov. men thai' Mr. .Uruoh.s reached by telephone were largely huutfliiub ui oilier ofl'iciT.s of elinin- beii) of tonuni'icu 01 similar organizations of busmen men. Tlioy cxpius- bed the point of vicv, of the clabb, which peihapb has a special i;cu- bon ioi opposing ,i .sales tax. Hut it bhould be Kept in mind that \vhi|u a halch tax •.•.oiihl mean a certain amount ot inconvenience and loss of trade to the merchants ol the state, its major buidcn •ttoulrl i.ill upon the funnels, \vagc eaineij, and salaried people of Arkansas They would be (lie o'lus to pa) llio bill And if they want to avoid this, c\lia tax; burden- it be- hoo\es them to join -\\ith the business men in letting the legislature; know how they feel about it. Huty and iht Poll Tax Law A pioiwsal to abolish the poll tax loinmemenl toi voting in Arkansas iv-ib defeated in the house of rcpre- bentativcb th}f>i ^nionnng after Kcp. Eugene Hampton, of Lee county, luul invoked the specter of a Huey Long- diet utorihip '.: ; If the poll tax icquirement is abnl- ibhcd, baid Hampton, Lo«g will im- poit "mggeis" .tiomj Louisiana and tluib cany his ticket to victory in the next Aikansas election Uiilcs,-, Huey linds himself in a position to stalk bijfgei game in JMG'it, is not impiobablc that he may lake a hand in AiKansas politics. We ;l gree with the gentleman from Marianna, moi-ecvei, that icpeal of the poll tax leinmemcnt \\omd be right, down the OUT OUR WAY BLYTHEVILUJJ, (ARK,) COUKIER NEWS alloy. Unli Mr. nvlglit have left out Hint nonsense about Loiiisimm negroes. Long is loo smart a politichin to try anything as prc|»s(crous its (hat—a ('act of wliidi Mr. Hampton is probably well itwaro. Whatever power Iliicy may be able to muster in Arkansas—ami his success in pulling over Mrs. Caraway some yours ago iwiicales that it may l«j considerable—will come from white citizens of Arkansas ami largely from that class of Hit! while citizenship that is more or less disenfranchisuil l;y the . poll tax Jaw, Intellig, 'ence in Tests The intelligence test is one of the great features of modern life. , Somc- lime.--, though, one wishes that those who use it eonW use si little more intelligence in propounding their questions. A psychinlrist "li'.sk'il" ;i Bulffilu boy recently. JI B ashed him to tell the Kiniiliirily between a .^nalK', a eo\v, and a sptii-row; the boy replied that none of Idem could lallf. Then he asked the 'boy what be 'should do when he found he was no- ing to be lati; for .school; the buy said, "Think up an excuse." Now the funny part about il is that from the psychiatrist's viewpoint, bolh of Ihese answers were wrong—although any ordinary mortal would find them prclly sensible answers lo ra- Iher peculiar ijuostioiiN. Tests \vhich p,i,ve tin: subjecl /.ems for answers as intelligent as these cannot, properly, be called intelligence tests at all. New Definition Needed The "insanity defense" in nuinler eases generally arouses a cynical smile, these-days. .Aside from Uio f;icl dial unscrupulous lawyers have loo of I en ' lioiTortcd it lo improper ends, one ];j|; trouble' with it is Unit our Js>i;;il definition of insanity is taully. In most states :i man is legally sitni-, and responsible for his ads, if he can tlisUnuuisli rijflit from \iToiig-. k IVIiai we need 1 0 realize is that emotional instability tan be worse ihan intellectual instability. A man perfectly able to tell right from wrong can nevertheless be swept oil' his feet by an emotional storm he Ciimiot control. A Los Angeles youth awaits trial for beating his hulf-sislcr almost lo death—for the amazing reason that if she were out of lh c way ho would be allowed to buy a dog he wanted. Ho seems menially normal; ilm | hj, s trouble, om; would fil | C .ss, is an emotional (|iiirk which lakes him entirely out of the class of normal folk, but which, nevertheless, may leave him perfectly ".sane" by the rigid legal definition. If ive arc satisfied with relief alone, we shall never achieve economic, reconstruction. —Senator Robert I-'. Wanner. New York. By Williams LISTEM HERE!
