Less than 13 cents out of every dollar collected in .Mississippi county goes to tlti 1 county. In a I'nintiu ell'ort to escape KOMI an intolerable lax situation we miKht strike out blimlly, iloairoy ilie elVieiency of csmilinl county services, eliminate agencies thai are sironjr force* for tilt- progress and-upbuilding of the romily. and lind at the ciul that we had reduced our total tax bill less than live per cenl. / Now these are not limes (o sneer at a, live per cent saving, and the cost of county government should be reduced to the lowest figure compatible with the maintenance of essential county services on an eflicicnt -busis. The point is that however much or little investigation may show may be trimmed from the county budget, if taxpayers arc to obtain substantial relief the trimming must not stop there. The slate of Arlitm.-as, for example, . takes nearly as many dollm,-.-; from the people of Mississippi county in direct luxation us dors the county government, the schools take twice as much, the drainage and road improvement districts nearly three times as much, and the St. Francis levco District costs the taxpayers of this county slightly more than does our entire county government. At the last session of the .legislature rcorgmiixation of Die state government with a view to more efficient public service at less t-osl was proposed, but was killed because it threatened lo destroy political control of public expenditures. Tlml is sonu-thiiig (hat ought to interest the taxpayer.-; of tin.-; and every other Arkansa.-i comity. Over twenty-six cents oil! of every Mississippi county tax dollar go lo the Kiippoil of the schools operated by some three dozen school districts. We can have better schools at !e.-s ct-sl whtn \vc are 'nvidy lo adopt n county unit system, which would do away with a lot of the overhead and supervisory expense involved in Ihc present .sy.ilc-in. That is something that is important, to citizens of this comity as taxpayer.-? and as parents. With almost half of our tax dollars going lo improvement districts it inighl lit- worth while to learn if thi.-re niV any savings (o he alfecled in that direction, Bond interest and principal are fixed charges, and the possibility of redwing Diem tlmnitfli spreading them over a longer period i-. probably not givat. Rut there is at least it chance I hat overhead ami imimleminri! of these districts might be cut. Tliat is something that taxpayers ought to investigate ,whilu seeking lax relief. MfYmiSVlLLE, (AUK.) COURIER NEWS Gandhi'?, Scad Al.-dialina (Jnndlii'.s ru-enl j.Jea lo his followers lo get rid of mankind's two greate-'t fears—the fear of death and Ihc fear of ilic loss of material possessions—helps to explain how it in that (his wizened little man can possess such a Iremeiulous amount of power. "No power on earth," .-.-ays Gandhi, "can subdue- a man -who has shed these two fears." When yon stop to think al.oiit. if, H is easy to see that he is right. If you have not the slightest t|ualms about losing everything that you possess, nothing that anyone can do lo yon can frighten you; and when a man who is in that I'nrUmjile iw.-iilkm puts, himself at tho head of a great movement, it will prove Jm uncommonly hard tusk to stop him.
