Less Tax-—More Revenue Senator Clyde T. Klli.s, urging reduction of the Arkansas cigarette tax from live cents per package of twenty to three cents, cites figures to .support u contention that the lower lax might actually produce more revenue than the present one. Whether or not lie is right is of course a matter that can be delermin-v cd definitely only by trial. 'Hie facts which lie presents in support of his contention, however, are such «s merit sorionii consideration. He points out that Iowa, Kansas, Ohio and Utah, where the tax on cigarettes is two cents per.package, have a higher per capita cigarette tax revenue than ctocs Arkansas, where llio-lax is tw.o and one-hall' times Uieirs. Residents of those stall's pay lax on ;m average of 530 cigarettes per capita each year, while Arkansas collects tax on only 1GO cigarettoi per capita pur year. Perhaps there arc factor;; because of which the other states named would have a higher per- capita cigarette, consumption than Arkansas regardless of tax. Bill we'- venture to say that a major portion of the difference is accounted for. by the fact, that a large part of the cigarettes consumed in this state are purchased, tax free, in neigh- v boring states, or are ' bootlegged, tax free, right here in Arkansas. The Arkansas cigarette (ax, like the Arkansas- gasoline lax, is loo high. It can be justified only on the grounds that it produces essential roVenue. When;'as appears to lie t)ii: ctisc, it defeats that purpose by driving consumers to other forms of tobacco and to illegal and out of state purchases, it has ho justification. BLVfHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS We, Should Preserve Natural Resources In considering tin: huge expenditures proposed by the Roosevelt administration, it. is necessary to distinguish between those which arc aimed directly at the current depression ami fliose which would he advisable even if the depression should end tomorrow morning.

We must, as President Roosevelt says, take notice of the losses Hint Vnrestniined exploitation has caused— "Of the cullitiif of our last slaiuls of virgin timber; of the incrcasinji Hoods; of the washing- away of millions of acres of our top soils; of (ho lowering of our walenni; tables; of the (Inngors of one-crop running; of llio do|)letion of our minerals—in short, the evils that wo have brought upon ourselves today and the oven greater evils that, will'iUcml our children unless wa ad." > • * All this ought to i, e a reminder that m: owe a very largo part of our commercial and industrial greatncs.s to (he fact that we built up-our society in I ho midst of natural resources of unparalleled richness.

It ought to he obvious that if wu dissipate those resources—if WR heedlessly destroy the Jast of our forests, delve for minerals wastefully, and permit our farm, lands to deteriorate— ^Ye arc simply knocking out the foundation on \vhicli llio whole structure rests. After we have done whatever is possible to heal the depression, we shall still be under the necessity of preserving this foundation. :; K -we fail, we shall eventually enter a depression Irom which there can be no full recovery. —Bruce Cation. 5ESM Oucc infected, you cannot gel the politic,.!
