"If industrial development, the great tonic for property values, hits been slow in Arkansas," says the Gazette, "New Hampshire has ha:l to withstand long continuing periods of stagnation in it? chief industry, textiles, and thu loss of some important textile properties that moved south." The point the Gazette made is thai increase 1 in the New Hampshire assessment has been made tinder a Jaw giving a "state tax board authority to , reappraise all property in tlie .slate for r. tax purposes. ~ "In what measure, 1 '' tho Gazette asks, .: "is . this striking difference (between : New Hampshire and Arkansas assess-; ^ iticnj,.increases), explained' by 'the* fact! I that' NbwHtfnTpshirc II'HS carricif'oti ; n -systematic re-assessment of property "through a state agency'.'" -' At a time when (axes are especially r burdensome, and when our schools and r'other essential m'titntioris are siiifor: ing from laek of adequate revenues, il ;~is particularly necessary thai all prop; .erly be fully and fairly assessed for ;^ taxation. The local assessment system ; : hnj pretty, well broken down in Ar'_ kansas, for reasons thai are obvious, •^ and the time has come when slate "control, for the equalization of assessments throughout, the state, i.s nccc.s- sarv. :. The Besl Students t._ A, survey recently made at Temple I University discloses that students from j small towns usually carry ofV the | scholastic honors a( colleges nnd un;"•"• iversities, an:l thai .-tudenls who arc OUT OUR WAY working their way through usually rank higher in their studies than students whose expenses aro bcJiife' paid by their -nut-outs. These (hidings aro interesting, but not especially surpruiiur. The youngster from the small town u:umlly has n butter chance lo learn how (o study while in high .school, for the simple reason Unit there are fewer distractions. And the yuuiigfilt'r ivlio wonts an edMention badly enough to wait on (nl)le or tend furnaces in order lo «c;t it can ordinarily be depended on to do xomc good, hoiicH work in the classroom and study hall. The "Dry Sjulh" H has been said so often "the Smith is dry" that many of u.s seem .unable to doubt it despite all the evidence to the contrary with which we are continually confronted. For instance: The News Leader of Hichmmul, Va., is conducting a straw referendum, on prohibition in which only i|ij.-ilj/ic<l volcrs of the city may 'par!icipale, and with the requirement that name- must be signed lo all ballots. First returns from this referendum, far from complete, .show <>.?() pur cent dry and <):).30 per cent wet. Almost complete returns in the Literary Digest poll from the wnne city whew a total of 7,n(iO votes, of which 18.51 per cent are dry and 8U<) per cent wet. What do you think of thai-?

Whether It could get through the Senate nncl 'escape a presidential veto \vculd depend on the strength of opnoslilon that arose. Most bankers are believed to oppose deposit insurance, although Steagall says many bankers in small aurt incdium-clzcd cities arc nt last favoring It. One ol ths arguments flime at the ."cheme is that the guarantee law in Nebraska, the last state in which ouoralcd. has collapsed.
