'A Dangerous Proposal Democratic candidates for county and stale oll'ices have no o|>posilion of' i'<>iiR(!(|UGjicc in llu! i\ovembcr (i general election but two referred acts ami three proposed amendments to f he- slate constitution make (he election one of unusual importance nevertheless. The Courier News luu already made some mention of proposed amendment No. 2), the so-called four-year "jtrab," which, despite certain defects, is nol the terrifying monstrosity .some of ils opponents have tried to make it. As a matter of fact, except to thci officc-holdini; and pffk'e-soeldiijr class, we doubt if it is a matter of very great consequence to the people of Arkansas whether it wins or loses. At all events whatever dangers it contains tire of small moment compared to those inherent in another of the proposals which has received relatively little attention in the press or elsewhere. We .are thinking of referred act No. 280, which would permit properly owners to postpone tax payments for four years at no penalty except a 3 per cent interest charge. Should this be made law the public schools and the city and county governments of Arkansas, already severely crippled by diminished •revenues, will just about have to close up shop. For it will leave no incentive for Ihe payment of taxes except .a, sense, cjf public responsibility—hiir'illy • adequate prbtcfetion for our common schools ;mil our local governments. This proposal, it, should be ciriplm- bixed, will lie of scant help to hard pressed .small taxpayers. Those who can scarcely afford;to'pay-each year's taxes'as they fall'-due will have nothing to gain and much to lose by let-' ting them pile up for four years. But to the big taxpayers the opportunity to lei taxes go delinquent for four years at a penalty limited to 3 per cent will be simply an opportunity to borrow money at 3 per cent. Tlmt money would be worth 8 or JO per cent to them. Why should Ihey pay taxes when by refusing t 0 ( \ u so they e an make a 0 to 7 per cent profit? The answer is that except for those with a .strong sense of community obligation they won't pay. Much has already been done for the OUT OUR WAI 7 • taxpayers of 'Arkansas. They have been virtually freed of liability for buck taxes. Perhaps when Act 280 was first proposed eiriMimslances seem- cd ( to justify further relief for tlicni. But the situation justifying such nn extreme measure, if it ever existed, IIHS passed. There is no justification DOW for a proposal which, if enacted, would threaten our common schools and our local governments with loss, of much of their already inadequate revenue. Whatever yon do with the oilier proposals at the polls next Tuesday, voto down Act 280, \ Presidential \earning The hidden ambitions of successful men are interesting thing*, when we can find out about them. Many an industrial leader secretly wishes he had become a prospector or a musician; ninny •!! general would be a locomotive engineer or an Arctic explorer if he followed the dictates of his own heart. Bui the most surprising of all these suppressed desires is the one recently attributed to the late President Coolidge. Arthur Hopkins, theatrical producer, says that Mr. Coolidge always wanted to bo an actor. Mr. Hopkins says that he and John .Barrymore learned, this, some, years <igo, while guests of President Cooh'4'e at a White House luncheon. The president, he says, not only wanted to be an actor, hut w«s convinced that he would; have been a pretty good one. Few men ever win more success than Mr. C9olidgc found in his chosen field of politics. It is strange indeed to learn that beneath it nil there lurlced a hidden yon for the glamour of foo'diglits and grease paint. Cheaper Power The Federal Power Commission reports that more rate cuts for electric current consumers have been reported during the last year than in any oilier year on record. This may be a /reflection of the government's entrance into the power business, as in the Tennessee valley, or it may come from some other circumstance or set of circumstances. The iwwer commission refuses to say. Bui whatever the cause may be, it is evident that the consumer is getting a long-needed break—for which he should be exceedingly thankful. The prices of most things we buy these days arc going up. To find ii broad field in which the trend is downward is encouraging. ! Isii'l it possible that this may eventually mean a new prosperity for the power companies, as well as a break for the consumers?
