Costly Controversy •^ Because members of the Arkansas Highway commission cannot agree where the money should be spent there is a possibility Arkansas may lose ;i considerable part of some $4,000,000 i in federal aid money which will rc- veii to the federal treasury if not speiit before next June 30. ; .Tijiere • are plenty of roads that are , needed, and men enough needing (he jobs- building of the roads would pro- v vkje.' But : the commissioners, or at jettst some of them,' seem more intent iipcln playing petty politics than upon getting, a' construction program under ^ay. -The attitude of Commissioner Sam Wilson, in particular,. seems (it this-distance to be obstructionist in (lie extreme: He has virtually said, if reports in the Little Rock papers are .correct, that if he can't-get the roads he Rants'for Ms part of the state he ib willing to have a largo part of tlie program., held up. : -MisSispippi county is not directly involved, because no work in this county is. under "consideration, but the people of-this and all other counties in tliu state would like to see this federal money put to work on the closing of some, of the numerous gaps in important'. :jt a be highway;;. The ccjfnm.Li- - sip'ners ought not to let personal, po- . litical, or regional differences interfere with that. 7 he Difference Advocates'of .(he proposed amendment-to the constitution of.Arkansas which would impose a one per cent tax on every sale ami re-sale of merchandise .in this state arc fond of referring to the apparent success of the sales tax in Mississippi. We thinjc the economic soundness of the Mississippi sales tax is questionable, but the purpose of this editorial is to point out that however good or bad Mississippi's plan may be it is something entirely different from what is proposed for Arkansas. To be specific: 1.—Mississippi's sales tax is purely an emergency measure and contains a clause which automatically repeals it at the end of a two year period. The proposed Arkansas sales (ax would be written into the constitution of the state where its repeal, should it prove iiiisiiti.sfiicloiy. would be (iifficull and expensive. 2.—Mississippi's tax b purely a retail sales tax, charged only once against any piece of merchandise... The Ar- kunsas proi>osal is fnr :i s^ 11 ^ 1 ' sales tux, and would In: pyramided 83 .merchandise |).'i.s>-t:l from the original producer to the distributor, to the retailer, and to tl:e consumer, the latter, of course, ultimately paying the entire bill. 3.—The Mississippi sales tax exempts sellers whose gross bu-iness amounts lo less than $100 per month or ? 1,200 per year. Thc proposed Arkansas sate.s lax would require a farmer to take out a license, pay u ICLV tu the slate, and make a tux accounting if lie .sold a load of stove wood or a second hand plow. '!.—The Mississippi law permits the merchant to absorb the i;ix, as he customarily does on small sales, anil to make his .m-oiinlhi},' with the state on Die basis of his gross volume of sales, UiuleV lhe proposed Arkansas lax [he .-oiler is specifically forbidden, under severe penalty, from absorbing the tax. He must collect it from thc consumer on all sales .of live cents or more, nnd must make a detailed accounting of thc lax on each and every item of merchandise he sells, instead of Kcttlinj; on lhe basis of his gross sales. The Mississippi tax is a one-time tax, simple in application, containing reasonable exemptions, requiring no elaborate collection machinery, and is a self-repealing emergency measure. Tlie Arkansas proposal is for a lax that would be multiplied every time a piece of goods changed hands, with an exceedingly complicated and burdensome accounting and collection system, a license requirement for the sale by any citizen of so much as a dozen old bottles, and, worst of all, it would be written into the cdnstitulion whore no matter how little we liked it it would be hard to get it out. More Relief ,for the Farmev It seems to us (hat it is time the fnrmcr woke, iiJicl did n little thinking sine! acting on his own part, whenever the old gag is used, save the farmer's money, in putting over any kind of legislation the farmer had better look out. From past cxjicrience he can judge in the future. The farmer pays (lie freight and when some "slicker" tells him he has something which ivlll save him money he can rest assured there is a catch in the deal. Several cf Hie amendments to to voted on November 8 arc disguised in this way anil \vhen, nropsrly diagnosed one will find they will cost not only the •farmer but the average citizen more than the present tax is costing. Read these nmrn.1- meats and then vote against the majority, if not all ot ihein. —Wynne i>rogres5. Tiie farmeio In (he miik shtds of the country arc milking their cows for nolhhis.

He recommended that'a child born with its feet twisted be subjected to rapeated manipulations and that bandages then be applied to hold the fool in place until it healed properly.
