Bungling 11 may not be oC tremendous consequence but as an A-l example of legislative bungling House Rill 450, passed in the closing flays of the liiiy-lirst Arkansas general assembly, is worthy of consideration. Last November the voters of the slate approved an initiated measure for free text books in the public schools. It was up to the legislature to make provision for the handling and care of the books and the lawmakers came to the not unreasonable conclusion' that this responsibility should be entrusted to 'the county examiners. Their old salaries o£ ?600 per year would be inadequate for the additional duties it was proposed to impose upon them and it was therefore decided to make the oll'ice of county examiner a full time job, the salary to. range from §1,200 per year in small counties to 52,400 per year in counties of (50,000 population. So far so good. What the .schools really iieed is a system of effective • professional supervision. Each county should have a superintendent, selected non-politieally and strictly on the basis of professional qualifications, with such assistants'in the way of trained, supervisors as the school enrollment of the county justifies. Responsibility for the care and handling of textbooks would naturally be a part of the job of'such a . supervisory system. The legislature, however, did not see lit toleslub- lish such a system, and in 'its absence • it was only natural that the textbook job be combined with that of examiner. It was when it came to fixing salary schedules that the legislature really got off the track. The original bill, as explained above, called for salaries ranging from $1,200 to §2,400, based on population. But a member from Garland county, which on a population basis fell in the $1,GOO salary bracket, wanted more pay for his examiner and introduced an amendment arbitrarily boosting his county into the §2,400 bracket. To add S100 a month to the pay of a political pet in Garland county it was necessary to set up a new classification of counties and it so happened that, as diawn, it included seven counties besides Garland. , Then- the bill went to the .senate which, in its wisdom, decided that 82,400 per year was, too much pay for a county examiner and custodian of textbooks, and reduced the salary scale for .the top bracket to ?2,000 per year. But it overlooked the special $2,400 classification set up for the benefit of somebody in Garland county. The oversight was discovered when the bill,came back to the house for concurrence in amendments, but by that lime the end of the session was only a' N few,days aw«y an'd there was no time to make a correction. So now in Jefferson, Mississippi,, Pulnski, Sebastian and Union counties, which have the largest populations and the largest school enrollments in the state, the salary of the county examiner is to .be ?2,000 a year, while in the much smaller counties, of Critlcndcn, Benton, Garland, Phillips, Poinsett, St. Francis, Washington and White it' is to be $2,400 per year. The salaries; incidentally, will be paid chiefly out of state funds. Each county is required to pay $600 toward its examiner's salary, regardless of its me, while the balance will come out of slate funds. SIDE GLANCES \ A -Welcome Pad Kvcn more significant and encouraging, in some respects, than the original contract between the steel workers' union and the U. S.. Steel subsidiary companies-is the supplementary agreement just sighed which provides for orderly, peaceable adjustment of disputes. This agreement sets up grievance committees, labor "courts," and the machinery for selecting and using the .services of an impartial arbitrator. The parties to the agreement pledge themselves to settle their disp'utes through this machinery "without .suspension of work." In some-ways this ,is the best news that has yet come out of the steel- labor situation. For if the groat industry's employers and employes have at last hit upon a formula that will lay the specter of a steel strike, once and for/'all, they have rendered the entire country a great service.
