Ben I/iney may have unwittingly repealed Arkan' poll tax as a voting requirement. The paper said thit In abolishing the Arkansas property tax—as requested by Laney—the 1947 leg- Wature repealed an enabling art which alto applies to Constitutional Amendment 11. Amendment 11 aeis up the one dollar per capita ttx on Individuals which hai been termed the poll tax by the Arlcan- us Supreme Court. The newspaper said the discovery was made by an Arkansas attorney while Governor Laney was in Washington voicing his protests to President Truman's civil rigtiU sram which includes abolition Plhe poll 'ax as one of its principal planks. The same 1947 legislature which the paper says unknowingly may have abolished the state's popular Poll tax took a pre cautionary step however. Realizing that the federal Congress would probably pass an anti- poll tax law the General Assembly placed on 'the .November general •lection ballot a proposed constitutional amendment which would allow the Arkansas legislature to Aet up a voting registration system in the atate. . . c ju CL L ® BY 1ONE SAM »>• lone ^andberg bhnber DISTRIBUTED BY N SHRIBER.

Nothing so far on which to base tragedy. The shore was fairly close.

And when you came rlghl down to it that so-called scandai was such a simple tragic story. A Sunday afternoon, a sailboat, two men and a lovely girl. All of them on 3 lake that had the well-carnecl reputation of being treacherous. The college had banned iif use to the students: there was no rule on-Rinda's campus stricter than the one forbidding the lake. The boys' school, on the other side of the \valcr. wns a little more lenient; they aUowcd sailboat* and some swimming. But the two men were breaking rules by taking Hinda (iust as she was breaking the rule by going) because they knew the ban as well as she did. They knew she might face expulsion if she were forced to admit there had been a girl along. That was when the talk started It there was nouiinjj wrong, why hadn't the girl stayed there and talked wilh the police? If there was nothing to hide, why did Kcll> Winton steadfastly refuse to tel who she was? Rinda wanted to go to the police but Ann and Kelly agreed lha identifying RinJo would serve n purpose.
