Let Officers Wear Uniforms The rights and wrongs of llic tml'or- tunutt) killing of two young Mexican students by a deputy sheriff at Ardmore, Okla., will no doubt be determined by ' the proper processes of l;iw. One thing however is evident. Whether or not the Oklahoma officer was. justified in believing, us .he says lie- did, .that his own life depended upon the prompt use of his gun, the tragedy jvould never have occurred if he and .his companion officer hud been in uniform. ' : • •.Deputies Bill Guess and Cecil Crosby •',thought, the Mexican students were "a bunch of young hijackers." The slvul- . cuts' 1 thought the officers were holdup nicii. The whole lamentable affair could never, have happened if the deputies had been readily recognizable as bilkers .of the. law. j An lofTicer'in'uniform commands respect.

Y.U/.'-- ••••-•• For Good Goverment We reprint on this page an editorial from the Arkansas Gazette -which outlines some of the opportunities that lie before .a proposed statewide organization of "Good Government" clubs. There is certainly a nctHl in Arkansas for an active and intelligent interest in public affairs on the part of persons with no axe to grind but that of (he wclfarq of the state. Let "Good Government" clubs be organized in every county .among men and women with no personal political ambitions and they can become a mighty factor in the fight for a better Arkansas. Permit .such clubs to become the instruments of aspiring politicians or political factions and they will be worse than useless. I organization will l« what the people of Arkansas make It by the degree o[ Interest they manifest In Us program >md purposes. Plenty of work Is wailing In tills ilnle lor Its citizens to do. They can net elfcclUcly only when Ilicy tire organized- In the matter of taxation alone, continual Increases In the lates, and perpetual search Tor new .sources on which to levy, have brought Hit people ol Arkansas lu the limit of Ilirlr capacity to pay. There IH general opposition to Increasing tin; properly tax. Various other slate Icucs have been raised to new heights and It Is a iiucsllon whether some of tiie rates have not ten made so high that they have reached th; point of diminishing returns. All Ehc people should liavc fuli and complete knowledge of our public obllgalloiib and of the taxable resources on wind) we cnn count for interest and redemption. Our public credit should \x kept Inviolate.

Tims the estimated deficit for 193:1 was reduced to 5-170,000. Hill the deficit fur I9.H Is estimated at $2,070,000, and for i!K)i nl 5J.-IOT.01ii). If the lilnlcimitr continues In the mallei 1 of a slate highway iiudit this matter should receive the curnc';t attention ol organisations representing the cillwnslilp of (lit .slat--'. There Is a 40-ycai;-o!d apiwrlionmcnt of representation lu the legislature which works the greyest Injustice and Is In ll.sel! a denial ol the basic principles; on which the whole government of Arkansas stands. There is the question of safeguards for the pardcnmg power. There is tlio whole field of ciainly consollda- llun, and better forms of government for counties and cities. Tlicre is the uiatter of education! und u. system of stale ami locally sup- jwrlcd schools which cxiwrls unconncelcd with Arkansas Inivc told us Is badly out of bahnicc. If 11 be asked why thcce things should not be left to the legislature, the situation in the education system of Arkansas suggests nn 1 answer. That Kitimlloii reveals to what, a deyrcc successive legislatures have foiled to act upon public problems from the viewpoint of Hie slulc as n whole, and liow often their action or lack of action lias been determined by the narrow view point of local groups, —Arkansas Gazette.
