A Veto Is Needed Among the measures passed by the recent legislature and now awaiting Hie signature of Governor Paniell is one by Representative McCabe of Hax- Icr county which merits the executive veto. The JlcCnb; bill provides for a change in the; method of itppnrlionmeiit of highway turnback money among the counties and would have the result of giving the spar.sely populated, hill counties of the stab a highly disproportionate share. The original act, it will be remembered, provided for apportionment among the counties on the basis of population, urea, and autu- mobih license receipts. The McCabe bill provides for apportionment, one third equally among the counties of the state, one third on the basis of population, and 0110, third on the basis of area. Under the original bill the hill counlhs would benefit out of proportion to their contribution of gasoline tax and auto license revenue. There is no reasonable excuse for still further penalizing the counlhs which produce Uie revenue for the benefit of the small counties. The matter is one of particular interest to the people of (he Chickasawba district of Mississippi county. H is estimated that should the JlcCabc plan become liuv this county would about 815,000 or 920,000 of its estimated apportionment under- the original act. Inasmuch as (he Chickasawba district's only chance of obtaining any road money lies in the hope of this county's apportionment being more than enough to pay maturities on §1,300,000 of Osceola district bonds, and because acceptance by the governor of the MeCabe measure would just about destroy that hope, his excellency's decision will be watched with interest here. Rc-apportionmcnt The McCabe m;aaire is just a sample of the price the more populous and progressive parts of Arkansas will pay if they fail to demand and obtain an equal voice with older but less thickly settled sections in the state legislature. Re-apportionment was a big issue last _BLYTHEV1LLK. (AUK.)' COURIER NEWS summer, but when the legislature niet it was alt but forgotten. Senator Nelson introduced a bill, but it never even got through the senate. Representative Alexander did nothing, for which he call hardly be blamed in view of the fact that if Mississippi Bounty had the three representatives she dcEcrvcs' In's opportunity for the kind of helpful service he rendered in the matter of the division of highway turnback money would be destroyed. , That was the trouble with r:appor- tionment all the way through the session. The fundamental justice in giving all citizens of the state an equal voice in their government received little con.-ideration. The things that seemed to count with our lawmakers were their own little personal ambitions and jcalousirs, Even the delegations from eastern Arkansas and other sections that would benefit by it were unwilling to sulwrdinatc selfish trivialities to the common welfare and to common justice.. Tils matter is serious. Issues will arise on which it will be imperative that the people of Mississippi county and other under-represented counties have the voico to which their numbers entitle them. The movement for rc- apportionment must not be permitted to die with the failure of the l:gis- lature to act upon it. It j s up ( 0 the people to whom the legislature has refused justice to initiate an act to obtain for themselves the voice in public affairs which the constitution of the stale guarantees them. Those Who Work and Those Who Cnlicize A few men who love their to™ and never hesitate to make sacrifices for it will do the work and pay tbj money. The larjjc majority will stand back and find fault. One man who hns never been a member of the chamber remarked that the titans have lest confidence, in it. He mlRht honestly hnve Ronr> nn :«v.[ explained that the. citizens who pay nothing In the cliiiinlm- and who give no help whatever have lost confidence because it saves them work and money. ' Losing confidence in the chamber and finding fault with it, means nothing but, n desire to keep from helping. The Chamber of Commerce will be. refinanced and rebullilcd.
