The speaker of the House, who HOW gets $1,350, would be jumped to $2,550. The pay for attendance at special sessioas would be increased from $6 a day to $20 a day. And a travel allowance for the legislator's official trips between their homes and Little Rock would be boasted from five cents to 10 cents a mile. Other salary provisions would remove the present constitutional maxim urns from compensation for Supreme Court, Circuit Court and Chancery Court judges, members of the Workmen's Compensation ommission and county officials. Thfi .salaries would be fixed at whatever amounts the Legislature wished. In the case of the judges and the compensation commissioners, the salaries could not be less than now fixed. A final provision, bearing no apparent relation to any of the others, would create a "joint ad interim committee of the General Assembly to be selected from Us membership, as may be provided by law, for the purpose of conducting research into governmental problems and making audits of 'j state agencies." These .tasks are the same as those now being done by the Legislative Council and the Legislative Joint Audit Committee. Adoption of the proposed amendment apparently would result in one group replacing the present two.

POLITICS hi: eliminated only by another later amendment — not merely by legislative act as is now possible. The measure specifies that "this amendment shall be in force upon it adoption and shall not require legislative action to put into force and effect." That means, lawyers aid, that •if the proposal is adopted the new governor will take office in December and other provisions will become effective at once. Proposed amendment No. 45 has attracted no organized support anci no organized opposition. Such criticism as there has been 01 it has been pitched mainly on the contention that it is a "hodgepodge 1 ' measure which attempts to cover too much ground.
