For as a result of action taken by the people in tho last general election, domination of the legislature by the sparsely populated mountain sections will end when the present session ends. Representation in the next legislature will be apportioned among " the various sections of the stale in approximate proportion to their present population instead of that of '17 years'ago. Mississippi comity and the rest of eastern Arkansas will gain stib- stantially, as their population warrants, and will have- the voting strength to --defeat such measures, for example, as that winch 'passed the state scn- • ate last week, providing'lor ihc divor- > sion from 'the common school fund of all the proceeds of the slate cigarette .tax. .' Cigarette . tax money, if this bill j becomes law, will go in the future lo the so-called equalization fund. That means, to make a long story very •short, that the counties which pay 4he least in cigarette taxes will got ""Triost of. the money,-•wliiWHhe coun- tics which are the chief sources of yt'ijrareft/^ fax revenue will get very •-' little- or uon'c at aflr* '* - The needs of the schools have been and are being made the cxciisn for an eveH-exrrmdiug program; of 1 taxation.

It is true • of the sales tax. And now, under this new bill for diversion of the cigarette tax-proceeds, only an almost negligible part of cigarette tax collections m this county will bo used 'for the '(ABK.); COURIER NEWS .. PUT OUR WAY benefit of the schools of this county. The truth of the situation''is. that there are in Arkansas large regions which cannot fjland on Ihe'ir own economic feel and that because of an iiiCQiutjible) apportionment, of reprc* Kcnlntioiv these regions have held a dominant position in the legislature, which they have used to put through a well defined program Cor making the rest of tlic state pay.their school and other local costs. The tragic part of it, so far as Mississippi aml.tnany other counties are concerned, is that our own resources are no more than sufficient for the adequate supplying oC our own school and other needs. Our Schools suffer while we arc forced to contribute substantially (o the support of, schools elsewhere. It is lime we awoke to what is going on, particn- hirly , inasmuch ;w We Mill ha\o enough voting strength in the next legislature to do something about it Defective Driven Tim other day, in Detroit, in men who had been convicted of dumk 01 reckless driving were examined at the court's psychopathic clinic. There it was learned that eight of the ID men had defective vision, two had in the past sustained head injm- ies, one had a hysterical temperament, two suffered from a mental disease, and two others were on the vcige ol insanity. Pour wore chronic alcoholics, and four had ''deficient depth piecep- tion," which 'meant that whenever they sped past another car, they wcic apt to conic too close and collide. The doctor who conducted the study noted one 'markedly impressive thing It was that, the defects of nil those incii-must have been known to ida- tives and'friends. And hero is the point every icspons- iblc citizen might keep m jnmd "Such men," that doctor said, "could liflve been lectured and worked upon by relatives and members .'of the community, in order to keep them out of trouble."' And, undoubtedly, that would have saved lives.' .
