Home Rule Sounds Nice But Is Dangerous Plan Proponents of the attractively- labeled Home Rule Amendment are lit it again. An Associated Press reporter came up last week with a glowing interview with Glenn G. Zimmerman, who is executive director of the, Arkansas Municipal League, in which home rule was painted in the rosiest of pigments. In the opinion of this newspaper, home rule, regardless of that wonderful- sounding title, would simply add to the burden of big government which even now hangs about our citizens' necks like yokes of. lead. The Home Rule Amendment, as first drafted two years ago, was so loosely written that some lawyers saw in il these dangers: 1. City income taxes. 2. Inter-city tax barriers to trade. .'!. Raising or lowering of city officials' salaries during the terms for which they were elected. •1. Issuance of bonds for many purposes and increase the lax rate as much as 15 mills to retire the bonds. 5. Payment of city officers on a lee basis. And these are just a few of the po- Icntial dangers lurking in the amendment. As we understand it, it would superccde all Arkansas' constitutional ami legislative acts which now .sei-vc to keep municipal government in its proper perspective. We think we've gone far enough with Ijig government, and this pmp,>seil constitutional ame-iulnidit would raise the cost and "take" of municipal government Ijy the old ta.x-;ind-spsMul formula. Government of Law, Not Men, Is Protection for All In this mixed up world, where so much stress is laid upon words for their effect and so relatively little upon truth, it probably ought to be no great surprise that a good many American workers have a distorted notion of what the courts are for. The other day a laborer, askvnl what he thought of Federal Judge Fine, who ruled that the President had no p<iwor v to seix.e the steel mills, declared: •Tor" my money, he's a Benedict Arnold." What lie meant, of course, was Unit the judge had been a traitor to labor's .cause. This reaction was fairly typical of at least a considerable segment of the working force. For the average union man lias been welt schooled in Ihe attitude that "you're cither for us or against us." With this over-simplified outlook— one incidentally that is not confined lo labor—Pine's decision milunilly would be weighed in only the n.-irrowt-st terms of labor's gain or loss. What workingmen with such a vi«w fail to grasp, and their leaders do nothing (o help on lln's score, is thai Pine nevor gava a moment's thought to the merits of the steel union's case against the industry. He was not supposed to. Pine was merely trying to decide whether the President had acted within ill's powers under the Constitution, or had not. Thai (ho Supreme Court has agreed to review the case is evidence that the issue is important to Ihe future freedom of every American. (n deciding against the ('resident, Pine WHS not acting against labor. He was just interpreting Ihc Constitution the way he sees it. That is his houndcn duty. Does any sensible laboring man believe in his heart that a judge should weigh the nn.T.'ts of the steel um'on'.s case, find them high, and then interpret Ihe Constitution in a manner favorable to labor? The man who believes I hat is saying the end justifies the means. Iti other words, if labor is right in this instance (and that of course has not been accepted), Ihwi let labor be 'served promptly—regardless of the effect upon the country's Constitution with its guarantees of individual freedom and justice. The courts of the United Slates were established to interpret the laws and to protect the nation and the men living under them. They were not set up to give advantage to n particular part of society at the expense of any other—or nt the expense of all men's future freedom." The man who thinks the court should be his ,-illy in the 1952 .steel wage dispute, or any similar specific controversy, iloes not really want a government of law but a government of men. If not his leaders, then can't someone else explain to him that he would find a government of men .satisfactory only so long as the "men" at its head happened to be his friends? A government of law should be the friend of all men ami enemy of. none. Views of Others Industrial Growth Sir Eric Bowater, British industrialist, spoke some welcome words of praise lor the South on his visit to Greenville, bill he had applied tiie "clincher" beforehand—in the i'onn of his coin, pany's plans lur investing sonic $55 million in a new pulp plant in Tennessee. 'Hie Bowatcr company is one ot thu largest mnnulacturers of newsprint and other paper products in the world, and under any circumstances, il would bo welcome in Ihc South or any other region. But Bowatcr's nnv plant, expected to lie In production in about two years, murks another step in the' development of another new Southern Industry—newsprint.
