Our Legacy .What, inquires the Helena World, is the state of Arkansas going Lo do with its hundreds of thousands of acres of tax forfeited lands? Are they to be counted mi asset of the- people of Arkanstis or is the state merely holding them until private interests deem it prolitable lo resume paying taxes on them? Most of the land, the World points out, is cut-over timber land, abandoned by its owners lifter Uiey liitil removed the merchantable timber.- Most of this land 'will reforest itself. But there is little pi esent prospect of the , state getting anv substantial return. In most cases timber thieves will remove the trees <ts soon as they reach sufficient size. The best the state can hope for {s ,the opportunity, some years hence, to sell its lax title for a dollar an acre 01 less and thus get the land back on the lax rolls. The alternative? "If the state," yiys Lliu World, "would embark on ,1 reforestation [jru- ' gram, in a co in pa r,i lively few years Uio lap'ic! gtowth of timber in' this state woulrl provide /.'evemief,' irom saleable limber sufficient to expand the program so that over a 10-year period Aikansas could have a system of state-owned ioiests that would be woith'untold millions to our children and our giaiulchiklvcn." "If we vrould begin upvyito prgnare such a legacy foi them pci-haiM 'our posterity cclild forgive us^or leaving them such .1 heritage of debt' and lax' ation that now leprcsents Jhc only tiling we have prepared lo leave them." - Public Education In any discussion O f our program of public education it should be kepi in mind that ue maintain schools and colleges primal ily for the benefit neither of those who, attend them nor of those who cam a living in them. I'iee pnbluf education is maintained foi the benefit of society as a whole. Thcie is no justification for taxing eveiyone for the hendil of school pn- Pils or school teacher,-, but (hero is justification for laxmg everyone to protect society against the collapse that would result from widespread il- OUT OUR WAY Jiteiacy and to provide society with the trained workers which are nccos- savy lo carry on our complicated eivilizntion. The welfare of society dcmtimls that all of its members receive sufficient education lo eiinble them to cany on the ordinary affairs of life and to discharge with Homo measure of competency iheir jjolitieal obligations. Further lhai) that it demands for each such specialized training as will enable him to make most effective use of such abilities as Ins may possess. TJic first es.sential is a good, elementary education for everyone. The second is vocational Iraininj; of a kind that will help iilake the student a useful and self-sustaining member of society. The third is higher education for whose mental equipment and seriousness of purpose justifies the investment. So'far as Arkansas is concerned it may be said that our elementary schools, taking the slate ns tt whole, are inadequate, and our provision for vocational training is even worse. We do maintain n large university and numerous colleges but we make little .effort to insure a socially justiliable return for the money • we spend on Hi em. We need more and better elementary schools. We need ', secondary schools with more clearly deiined objectives. Our publicly supported ' colleges and universities should elose their doors to those who lack the mind.s or the temperaments to take cllective advantage of such opportunities, thus eliminating much of the wasted effort and. money now devoted to such institution*. There is no reason why those who go lo college for four years of pleasant living- before buckling'down to life, incidentally picking up a little cultural gloss, should not continue'to do so, if their parents can alford it, but they should do it at private 'institutions, not at the expense of the taxpayers.
