What Price State Aid? A a meeting tomorrow the stale legislative commit leu on sclioul problems will take up two administrative plans for the public schools of Arkansas, submitted by. :«, committee of llus Arkansas ICiluciition association, and will also seek agreement upon a program of financial relief for the schools. One of the suggested administrative plans is a consolidation program, the other a county unit proposal. Either, or a combination of the two, is desirable. Arkansas lias too many small school unittj for economy? or educational efficiency. But the governor has slated that he will not "call a special session of the legislature to act upon schoul affairs unless the legislative committee agrees upon a program for providing the ihonuy -necessary to relieve the schools of.;their financial difficulties. .Here io dungcrous ground, and it is to be hoped Itiw't the .school tattlers of the state in their desire for, a stronger educational system'and in their anxiety to free the schools'Of financial embarrassment will not permit themselves to be swej)t into endorsement of any new tax outrages or any extension of an already top-heavy and burdensome rfiate bureaucracy. It is boUcr and in .the long run cheaper to keep our schools a local responsibility than to invite or accept state aid at the cost which such aid almost invariably involves. Lei. us not forget that the state, must come to us ior the money that it gives us. It cannot call down money miraculously from the sky, nor dig it out of the earth, but must tax thc'pcople of Mississippi county and other comities for everything which it gives them. lOxperionco has shown that ^dollars taken from us in the ^various taxes the state imposes are quarters when they return to us. We will 'save money if we will seek am| obtain the right to tax ourselves for what we need, rather than invite Little Rock to send new tax collectors among us for ,-iioncy to be diverted to serve political purposes and dissipated in collection costs and administrative expenses. . , Laughing the Depression A way Ilowevdr you regard that 10-day party Chicago threw publicly for "belicr limes" recently, ,it had a more stimulating effect on the city's business lliitn all .Hie cheery prophesies of our I'ollyuiw economists. It helped confirm what the administration 'has long contended, that most of thev.dill'iculties of the present slump are largely mental. Chicago's celebration, in which an estimated (juarler of a million persons reveled in parades, carnivals, street dancing and confetti-throwing, to the sentiments of "tfood times ahead" and "reluniimj. |/rosperity," was a tremendous triumph for psychology. Merchants, rciXH'ling increased sales, said that not for many years has business been so Maybe what this country needs to help lift ilj out of the depression is more jubilees a la Chicago. A rousing celebration can have a tonic effect on business; can be electric enough to awaken people from Ihe .slough of despond. All credit lo Chicago for tackling the depression "bull" by tbe horns! SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Speaking ol Spanish omclcls, how nbout tlio scramble In Alfonso's old kingdom? Argument By Radio It is interesting to note that Germany and Russia are cowUicliiitf u sort of verbal war by radio tliese days. 11 began when Soviet broadcasting .stations started .semlint; out revolutionary speeches in the German language— lor the consumption, obviously, of potential communistic converts on the German side of tin: border. Now the German* have retaliated by broadcasting, in Russian, lectures crit- icising conditions in Soviet Russia. This particular; squabble will probably be ironed out peaceably, enough in •short order. TUit the germs of a veal international argument are there. Modern science, by, facilitating international communication, seems to have provided one more source of possible friction. "Imagine! Paying that doctor $10 to have him tell me don't walk right."
