It is a legal advertisement declaring that on the general election hallot there will be a proposed constitutional amendment (No. 43) for you to approve or reject. This amendment to the slate constitution can, if approved at the polls, have a great bearing on the m u c It- sought industrialization of this and other parts of Arkansas. Stripped of its legal verbiage, the proposed amendment provides— 1. That a city may levy an annual tax ot not more than one per cent of the assessed valuation of «U taxable property located inside Its limits. 2. That such a tax may be levied by cities of the first (Blytheville, for instance) and second classes. 3. That funds obtained from payment of this tax may be used to: a) Purchase sites, inside or outside a city's limits, on which industries may locate. b) Construct buildings and other facilities for sale or lease to industries. c) Amortize (spread out over a period of time) payment of principal and interest on l;umis bearing not more lhao four pur ccr.t ir;U'i'j;t cadi year and sold lu lirisiij in industry. Umi-T the provisions of this iimciul- li. .".I. ti.c vuU:;s ol" a ci y \vutiKl iMcr- rnine whclhor or not suv'.i a lax would lie imposed, \\lien it b.-uniu- ;i|>! :.iu:iV that the tax vvas neiHicd to raise luuds with whicli to obtain an industry for the city, a ppvition l:e;.rinj!

When thus j)i-iilio:'.f.i. t: c t'iiv I'mm- cii would have to rail a special ch'clioii to I,L- held uitliin "JO dnys. It would then lie up to til? voters tn decide whfilluT they wanted the iinlustriali'/.Klion tax levied. It is our opinion that such an amendment will be of great benefit in our ((iiest for industries. Mississippi has a state law which provides virtually the same thing. Karlier this year, that state acquired So.000,000 worth of new industries because of the legal ability to obtain lax money to further industrialization. \Ve can put ourselves in Ihe same inviting position. Whether we do will be up to you i* Nov«Mb«r, Non-Joiners of Unions Must Have Free Choice The expert advices from Peter Kd- son and other Washington correspondents make if clear the real barrier to a steel settlement is not a wage boost but the union shop Issue. In fact, this question is now paramount not just in steel, but in several oilier major industries. What is a "union shop" contract? It is one under which a worker in an organized plant is given 150 days after hiring to join the governing union. If he does not, he must either pay union dues anyway, or face discharge from his job. In the contrasting "closed shop," nobody can be hired by the employer unless lie is already a member of the union. This arrangement is now barred by law, but the union shop is not. Large segments of American management nevertheless stoutly oppose the union shop, largely on the grounds that it amounts to violation of an individual worker's rights under the Constitution. The Supreme Court never has passed on the constitutionality of compulsory unionixiition. But it has ruled that a worker nuty not bo denied employment because of union membership. It seems far-fetched to imagine it would go to Ihe other extreme antt insist upon membership as (he password to a job. There is something foreign to the American tradition in compulsion carried this far. Of course we must obey the laws and pay taxes and serve in the armed forces if called. But these are not the same as being compelled to attach oneself—financially or any other way —to any particular organization; society or group. The basic union argument for the union shop is that since the unorganized worker minority in a plant directly benefits from all wage gains and other concessions obtained in the bargaining process, these workers at the very least should help support the union. "Free riders" is the term labor applies to non- joiners. This is not the place to argue the psychology or justice of the non-joiner's position us against the union majority. But whether he is being fair or not, his freedom to choose what working and social associations he shall make ought not to he penalized. Our guarantees of individual righta were not designed to prevent selfishness. They were framed'tJTpromole the maximum reasonable expression of the individual self. In the same fashion, our criminal laws are aimed not primarily at catching all the guilty, but rather at protecting the innocent. We practice justice on the theory it is better for 10 guilty men to escape punishment than for one innocent man lo be penalized. It we draft laws or countenance agreements lo force unselfish behavior, we may soon be forcing other kinds of "wise and necessary" behavior. And then where would our freedom be?

That would Lhrow for a bad loss the western powers' plan for an alliance with western Germany. • » » BUT THE fear that West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer will double-cross the western powers at the last minute Is discounted by most American and European leaders. True. Mr. Adenauer has been making statements that the new German tics with the West will not be binding on a unified Germany. These being it-s arc Einnlyzeci necessary political concessions for Internal German con- punch In their new pe n « offensive, With Congress anxious to adjourn before the U.

IE Internationally, Chancellor Adenauer's statements are regarded as .something of an offset for French ed back into special session after the conventions, U.
