Organizing Consuming Alilily Roy D. Chopin, Herbert Hoover's energetic new secretary of commerce, after profound study has come to the conclusion thai solution of the nation's economic troubles must he sought through "better organizing the ability of the average mini to consume." Wei!, far be it from us to say that the secretary is talking through his • hat. Maybe lie is the long awaited exception tc( the rule, oft proved, that cabinet officers know no more about what is wrong with the country than anyone else. It strikes us, however, that when ;_ Mr. Chapfn starts out to organize the '"_ average man's consuming ability lie °;-will be fortunate to escape mobbing. '•• The average man, these days, is painfully conscious of his consuming abil- ' ity, and is likely to regard the organ.... izihg- of it for tha sake of .prosperity r< as an untimely bit of funny business. '[' There is plenty of consuming iibil- - ity in this country ready to go to — work using up surplus farm products and the manufactured goods which idle — factories ought to be producing. Hut ;;_the only kind of an organization plan '.- that will accomplish much toward turn- r. - ing that consuming ability loose must ','•' put some dollars into the pockets of a IMot of would-be consumers. There is ',, no lack or desire to consume. The '"' need is for the means to consume, and ; .how Mr. Cliapin proposes to-organize ', •' that into existence -i s as yet somc- ; thing of a mystery. We await de• . tails with interest. Who Furnishes the Money Where the money is coming from to finance the campaign that is being waged in behalf of the proposed sales tax amendment is still something of a • mystery, but that plenty is being used is evident, . , / $ Field workers for the sales tax as-' • sociation, busy iiv all parts of the • state, are circulating pledge cards that read as follows: "Because of my interest in reducing property taxes in Arkansas 1 pledge to work as a captain for the passage of Constitutional Amendment I\'o. If) and Initiated Act. No. 1 at the general election on November 8, 1932, by using my ' car on election day to haul at least four families to the polls. For the use of my car I am to receive § whSfcjV'is to 1 bo paid immediately after {fie election by the l'r»]wrty Tax Ro- lief association, Kalin building, Little Rock, Arlc. I am to haul the following families: elc." Promises of political oi'giini'/.ations to pay "immediately after election" are sometimes of doubtful value. We do not know whether the I'ropui't.v Tax Relief association has on hand or in sight the money to pny for all this car hire. But it is taking a lot of money to keep Jlr. McComb and his olt'ice and Held forces functioning. The rank and file of Arkansas people who will pay the sales lax'arc not furnishing that money. Where does it come from? Our suspicion is tluil bondholders and out of state property owners arc putting it. up. They will \x> the beneficiaries if this amendment should be adopted. The people of Arkansas will pay the bill. All of which is something to think about between now and election day. What Fulrell Stands We are pleased to note that the Democratic nominee for governor, .1. 'Marion Fulrell, has come out with a plain statement of his views regarding the three most dangerous 'of the constitutional aincndme.'ifs to he voted on November 8. In a letter to 0. T. Ward, Hector lawyer, made public yesterday, the next governor of Arkansas declared that adoption of No. 1!) (sales tax) and No. 22 (homestead exemption) woitkl be "disastrous to the people of this state." Proposed amendment No. 21 (making ?G school .apportionment mandatory) he described ns harmless, because "there will be no power to prevent the legislature from ignoring it." He, pointed out, however, that wore No. 21 enforcible, "a distressing and irremediable situation in this state. would result immediately tinder the present impoverished condition of the people." The safe and right tiling to do is to defeat 21 as well as 19 and 22. The world as a whole during the next 25 years will sue; a wiser and better famuh'il era of imlustriiil progress than we have enjoyed hitherto. — Charles M. Schwab, sled magnate. * * » I've been lobbed seven limes in two years. They cume twice Inst week, and that finished inc. It's hard on the nerves, looking down film barrels to clleii, —P. M. Tank.
