Salnrdi-.y when lie asked them to devise :i phin for an udc- .quate public si-bool systc-m "which can be carried by the taxpayers without unduly burdening them." In place oi.' Ihe present school system, which the goveviu-.r said has "broken down" and "is a wreck," he wants one Hint will function and which the taxpayers can afford to support. If the commillco can find •>. way to sic- complish thill it will most certainly earn the thanks not only of the governor but of the entire state. Unfortunately there SCRIMS to be reason to believe tlmt lliy .schools of Arkansas are ^o heavily burdened will) debt that no plan of ruorganiwiVion can put them on their feel. What they need is a miracle—a rain of gold from on high, or something along that line—and that is too much to ask of the governor's committee. The trouble with our schools, like many other public and private institutions, is thai they spent money as if such prosperity as was experienced in the twenties was only a taste of u mud! Ki'i'ater prosperity that was sure to co:ix-. Instead the depression came, '-assessments declined, tax .!clin<iucncie< increased, and debt charges piled up. There is reason to believe- that the •financial -situation of .some districts in • the state ij hopeless. Others, our own included, face a long hard pull before they will be in shape to function us they should. The governor seems lo think'thiil the situation might be remedied by having the slate lake over the elementary schools, leaving the communities to maintain high schools or not, as they *ec lit or are able. In thai way it might be pr.'-sible for the taxpayers of the solvent districts to keep schools open in the insolvent districts, no doubt at some sacrifice in the quality o? education alfordiul their own children, but whether ftich an arrangement would be to the best advantage of the stale as r whole is a question. Another v;ay in -whu-h the stale might help solve llu> problem is through refunding by the slate of the debts of ti.e individual districts. Many district; would be help-,::! main-hilly if they could spread their ..lubts over a OUT OUR WAY longer tunn of years at reduced interest. Whether Hie state's credit at this time is such as to i»nnil such an operation is highly doubtful. Purtliur than this possibly the j, r ''<-'»test contribution the stale could make would be to enforce Die equitable assessment for tax pui'iiiMi 1 .! uf all property and to givi! the sdiook tlieir proper sliare of the proteeils of llic sale of .state tax lilies. This should result in some increase in school revenue. New or increased taxes, for the present lit least, are mil of the question. The' tax burden is aliviul.v too heavy. It must not be. increased, no matter how great tlic need. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Entering the Second Stage of Recovery Anyone who has sludiod tliu public reaction to the recovery program cannot have failed to imlici' llial wo recently have, passed from llic t'n'.sl phase uf this cxpoi'lmc-iil into tho second. The lirsl phase was the era of unanimous public approval. Few of us understood exactly what was KO'H\K on, but we could see thai some definite action was being taken, and we liked the idea. There were no dissenting votes. Everything that was done drew a round of cheers. Now things are dift'en-nt. Criticism lias begun. The varinun acts of the recovery program arc being submitted to searching analysis, and those who believe they scu defects iire not backward about calling attention to them. + * » It would be a mistake to assume tliitl this criticism proceeds solely from those who have private axes to grind. There, is some sniping going on, of course, touched oil' by gross selfishness; yet that in itself is not enough to e-xpluin -the change in the public's attitude. Evidently we simply came to the end of the ixji'iod in which our one wish was to sec "action, and action now." We. couldn't go on chooring forever over the fact .that the national" government had recovered from an attack of paralysis, lu got to be high time for us to bring our critical faculties to life. * » * This is bound to be a ^ood thing for the administration. No government can give its beit if there is a, complete and continued absence of criticism. If its every act is hailed as a masterpiece of wisdom, it sooner or later will got to be like an engine without a flywheel. Perhaps the best Ihinif that could have happened to the recovery program as a whole is the fact that people now are ready to speak up in meeting the moment, they see a flaw in it. We are, after all, still a dcinuLTiicy ;md nol a dictatorship. We want to stay I hill way. By subjecting the recovery program to critical analysis, we simply arc proving that our democracy is continuing to function in the proper manner. —Krucc Cation. CHURCH EXCUSES By Ge*. W.
