A Vdo h Needed Among tlic measures passed by the recent legislature and now awaiting the signature of Governor 1'avnell is one by Representative McCnljc of Baxter county which merits the executive veto. The McCiib,> bill provides for a change in the method of apportionment of highway turnback money among the counties it ml would have the result of giving the spitrsely populated hill counties of the stats a highly disproportionate share. The original act, it will be remembered, provided for apportionment among the counties on the basis of population, area, and ntilo- mobiU license receipts. The McCabc bill provides for apportionment, one third equally among the counties of the state, one third on the basis'of population, and one third on the basis of area. Under the original bill the hill countks 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 countus which produce the revenue for the benefit of the smalt counties. The matter is one of particular interest to the vjcopL- of the Chickiusawba district of Mississippi county. H is estimated that should the McCabc plan become law this county would lose about 815,000 or ?20,000 of its estimated apportionment under the original act. Inasmuch as th<> Chickasawlw 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 51,300,000 of Osceola district bonds, and because acceptance by the governor of the McCabe measure would just about destroy that hope, his excellency's decision will be watched with interest here. Reapportionment The McCabc nii.vtii'c is just a sample of the price Ihe more populous, and progressive parts of Arkansas will pay if they fail to demand anil obtain an eiitial voice with older but less thickly settled sections in the state legislature. Kcapportiomnent was a big issue last summer, l»il when the legislature met it was nil Init forgotten. Senator Nelson introduced a bill, but it never even got llirnturh tlie senate. Representative Alexander clii! nothing, for which he call liardly he blamed in view of the fact that if Mississippi Bounty had the three representatives she deserves > his opportunity for the kind of helpful service he rendered in the matter of Hie division of highway turnback money would be destroyed. % That was the trouble with ^apportionment all the way through the session. The fundamental justice in giving all citizens of the state an equal voice in their Kovernmsnl received little con.-idpralion. The things that seemed lo mint with our lawmakers were their own little personal ambitions and joaloush.s. Even the delegations from eastern Arkansas and other sections that would benefit by it were unwilling to subordinate selfish trivialities to the common welfare and to common justice. . Ths 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 voice to which their numbers entitle them. The movement for reapportionment must not be permitted lo die with the failure of the legislature to act upon it. Jt is up to the people to whom the legislature has refused justice to initiate an net lo obtain for themsilves (lie voice in public affairs which the constitution of the state guarantees them.
