Homestead Exemption Tin' Connor .N'ew.s is in receipt ol' a ooiimniiik'itlioii /'rani llii! f,. Norwood, i'oniicr ;i|[i!ri]oy jfcntnil, now slule director for the Fwiwsil Housing Adiiiin- istration, urging support of ii nuggcst- ud Hinemlniciil to the Arkansas constitution which would providu exemption from city, county and stale taxation lor lionie.slead.s of ;iu assessed value luvtjixfcediiiy $2,000. Mr. fsonvooit believes, with uiipar- enl jiwtilicaUon, that such lax oxcmp- lion would encourage home building and home ownership and the improvement of residence properties, with 0011- seiiuc-iit stimulation of cinploymoiit in the building trades. The idea ol at least partial tax exemption for small homesteads— the piopoccd amendment would not grant exemption from school or improvement. district taxes— sccim; to us sound, but there are some things thai must luivc consideration before it will be safo to put such an nmcmlmcnl into cfl'ccl. Under the law of Arkansas real property is supposed to be assessed at 50 per cent' of its fair value, In actual practice there is a good deal of variation from this rule. Tax exemption for homesteads up' to a $2,500 assessed-. valuation .would reach homesteads actually worth a good dual more than $5,000 and would result in pressure upon assessors for furlliur readjust- incut doivmvard of assessments. L'e- ' ,.j.-{ ; .Bxoiji)»ii we 'must have a' more rigid assessment system. .• • . \ • We should also have a thorough investigation of the result a ?2,500 ox-' emplion' would have upon public revenues. Cities and comities ;1 re largely dependent for operating rcvotiiie.s upon the mill lax. By what proportion would their already inadequate incomes be reduced by a ?2,GUO exemption law? 'Heavy Water-And Nerve This discovery of "heavy water" |>y modem xticntc may give ,-ise to one of the most eerie little tests evw |,or- formctl on.ii human being. •'Heavy wulor" is ;m otkl Kiiljstanue of unknown potoiilmlilies. Sciwitisls know- that its cfluct on life is utterly unlike the tfl'wt of ordinary wider. They believe tliat if ;i man wen; tu __ Uikc "_s"-ii'll drink of it liu would )jc OUT OUR \m f aged by at Iwl f>0 years, and it has been rumored that the American Association for tho Advancement of Science 'would pay a large sum. to anyone willing; 16 put the tmillcr to a test. Hearing of. tins, a-Toronto mail carrier named George II. Carter announces that lie is game. He oilers to bet the association ?50 that he can drink some of tin's "heavy water." Considering the rather slitvcry possibilities, most people will doubtless agree that the'gentleman has his nerve right along with him. A Tip On Revolutions A number of well-meaning Americans have grown 1'oiu! of miking about rewliitioij. Pcoplo who haven't the .slightest dosiro lo mount any barricades or face tiny lirinjr squiiils will KH.V, flibly, "We need a revolution in lliis country"—as if a revolution were a pleasant little step in social evolution which could be shut oil' painlessly before it really hurl anybody. Such jjcopJo mijfhl profitably lih'len to liimna Cloldiiuiu. This revolutionary lady describes, in a recent issue of "The Nation," the .sad plight of the old-lime Russian revolutionaries. She tells liow they snifVcral and /ought and endured dire punishment to bring about tho overflow of the CKIII-'S government, and how they hailed tho J917 overturn a.s u new dawn. ^ Now tliey dare not enter Russia. The revolution ran riglm out from tinder them. They have found that Russia simply strapped one lyrmitiy for another. ' Once a revolution starts, it is very 'M't lo got out of all control ami to head in a direction winch those who ivorkcd for it never remotely desired. The wishful ttilkcrs in this country might mediate briefly on that fact. A Real Postal Seroice Plan Senator Arthur 11. Vmulcnberg of •'Michigan .wauls t,, Mc „ " umcv j. e ,.. vice" established in the. Postoffice Department. He plans to otter. legisla, ' iion which would take "Hie "department .entirely out of politics, prohibit the postmuslor general from engaging in parly activities, and'-make il possible An- pavement-pnumiing letter carriers to rise to high places j n the department. Under his .scheme, indeed, only thu postmaster general would be a presidential appointed. All the other officials would be men W h 0 | uui ,. ison from Ul( , ranks. It is very hard to think of a worthwhile objection to this plan. It is prcl- ly nonsensical, after all, to maintain this great department us a happy limiting ground for political spoilsmen, in the interests of good government, let us hope the senator succeeds in bis aim.
