The School Amendment Petitions have boon in ni'cnliilinii hove and tliranglioul llio slide for lliu initiation of a constitution;!! iiinonilnn'iit which would mako it nuuutalory for I lie state legi.slaturc to jirovidu the funds necessary to i>|»nilc Hie lii'.-U uiKlil grades of ;ill Arkansas public schools for six months each year. On its face the' proposal is one that will make a strong appeal to nil citizens. 11 looks like a. guarantee of at least minimum educational opportunity for all the children of the .state, and a measure of financial relief for hard pressed school districts. the proposal is one that demands careful .study. In the first place it is es.-'cntiiil to remember that the state has no money for the maintenance of our schools except that which it obtains from us by taxation, There is no way in which a shift in .responsibility for maintenance, of schools from the local district to tin; state can clfoct a .saving to the taxpayers. It might transfer the burden or pail of it from one' class of taxpayers to another, or compel the taxpayers of some communities in contribute to the support of schools in other communities, but it can't get away from the fact that the cost of supporting the schools of Arkansas has to come out of the pockets of the people of Arkansas. That being the case, the question of course remains whether or not a \systcni of slate support-for the elcmeii- / tary schools promises us more for our money or a more equitable distribution of the school tax burden than under the present system of local responsibility. Unfortunately the proposed amendment carries no answers to these questions. U simply tells the legislature to provide for the schools. How the money is to be raised and distributed, and what standards arc to be maintained in the Schools, arc left for the legislature to decide. There is reason lo fear, however, that the proposed plan would require a largo/ overhead than the present one. It would almost inevitably bring an improvement in elementary school standards in many of the |xx>rer districts of the state, but that might be gained at the cost of lowered standards in districts which, despite din lenities, have thus far succeeded in maintain- OUT OLlK THERE VOC (SO f AFTER ME TELLIM' ^OU THAT YOU'D HAFTA JUMP AWAY OUT FROM TK BOARD, WITH THAT OLJ BATHIN' SUIT OF MINE,TO KEEP FROM TH 1 SEAT.' intr tlicir .schools on a high plane. It would certainly involve the taxing of the more prosperous parts of the sUle for the miiintcnancc of schools in the less prosperous parts. Al! Ihis is not necessarily bad, l)"t it al least makes it evident that the plan shoiild not lte> adopted without serious consideration. Frying Pan to Fire Sources close to the former (fur- nian kni.ser are quoted as predicting tlnit H military dictatorship will presently replace the Hitler regime in Germany, and that the ultimate result mijflil easily be a return of WilliHin to Hcrlin. Miller's standing in the non-German world can lie Kati^cd by the realisa- tion that whereas this would have been very excititiK and ominous news a few years a>f<), few people outside of Germany today will (jet very alarmed about il. Hitler seems as groat a threat to woild peace as Wilhclm ever did. No military dictatorship would be apt to rc.-il move heavily on the German people lhan dues the Nazi dictatorship. If llic Germans want to make the change, [he rest of the world is nui likely to be very disturbed. Tourists' Heaven ('resident Roosevelt's vacation trip lu Hawaii is an excellent reminder that llic islands of that territory constitute one of Ihe most lialcyonic vacation grounds ever made available lo travelers; and tiie American Nature Association points out that Hawaii has one lillle-talkcd of advantage which makes even its balmy climate and its mag- nilicenl scenery take a second place- it has no advertising billboards! Hawaii, it develops, lacks billboards because public-spirited citizens several years ayo realised thai one of Ihe U-rrilory's greatest assets was its natural beauty. These citizens bad the good sense to see that, there is no enemy of natural beauty <|iiile like the billboards; so they sut to work, and presently—presto 1 the billboards were gone.

Therefore, it requires more attention than any oilier parl of (he liody. In mosl ot us, the eyes change as we erow older. Yet far too many people fall to consider the changes that take place In the eyes, because these changes arc so gradual we are not aware of them. To determine Just how much nt- teulloii American people give to their sight, Inwstlgatorr. for ins United Stales Public Health Service looked Inlo the r-iomli of almost 9.000 families in 13D cities of 18 states for one year.

Naturally, ix-r- sons with larger Incomes pay more attention, lo Iheir Eight lhan do Ihose with small incomes, which is probably one of nature's little jokes, since the persons with small incomes need good sight more than do those with larger Incomes. . Moreover, those In professional. ess, or clerical occupations rtuy more Hllentlon lo their sight limn t'.o laborers. For years the imclieal profession has fcecn urging physica! t'xamlna- tion at least once each year tor every licit on who want? lo find defects of the- body at Ihe earliest possible moment, and In this way to give them some soil of conlrol. The figures show lhat those persons who have regular physical examinations are also intelligent about their eyes, since a far greater number of this class had n good examination of their vision once ea'ch year.

But sho could not slop remembering Jane, J;me stumbling away alone In 'Mo sunlight that flickered through the c!m?. Thrco years before, for Jane's blrtlnlny. sho had made up a little Bong without words, using for the niolif (ho lelters correspondiDg to Jauo's nniuo In tho ecnle. She nlnyed It now, a plea, for pardon, for understanding, nnd it made her want to cry for Iho lost friendship. Her thoughts had come back to Ilowiu-d nnd she began to wonder why slio was so sure tint sho loved him, lliat sho would never lovormy- ono else. How had slio known, how Iiad thoy Loth known! But she could nol tell! Frosenlly sho dosed tho organ and went homo, taking a way that would not lead her past tlio Terry house. Slio could not seo June again, not Hint day. Howard, in Miss Rosa's polished parlor, was feeling very much liko a delinquent student before ,1 largo severe flcnu. Miss Rosa had sot been surprised at his story, 1ml she had nol made it cssy for him to »c-ll It. "Jano runs In hero Ilko a wild ililng and raves around saying thai you've been making love to Amy behind her hack, and locks herself In her room, presumably to cry her eyes out. and now you've coma with tha story lhal you weren't engaged to .lane of your own free will, lhat sho cooked it up In her imagination. What t can't undersland Is why did you lei her lell all her ft lends that you wero engaged nnd now, i wo days later, renege ou it?" • • * TIOWARD'S backbone sttffenca. "J.ine told It without my knowledge, she was eiclted and unreasonable on Friday night and mistook my trying to nulet her for —well, for a proposal. Then In the morning she telephoned to everyone sin- knew wlilioui saying anything-to me. I did not ask Jane lo marry me, I never thought ot it. When I found thai.she'd told I didn't know what to do. I certainly didn't want lo embarrass or humiliate her or you. t had dtclde'd to go away and let the whole iffilr die oul naturally." ' "Then thlj morning she found you making love lo Amy.™ "She found me talking to Amy lad the Irulh came cut. Miss Rosa, It fs Amy i cj.j ,b OU L IMS imy er all k_ y t;l Jane TvoulJ not reply lo f/i« !(nocl{. rwiiy In Hid world did you pay Miss Rosa was recovering her control: "I'm afraid I said some so muck attention to Jane, if you wanted Amy?" 'It sounds very cheap nnd slurring to say so, but it you will think about It, I believo you'll remember :hat most of my opportunities to 19 with Jane wero made, -were insisted on by Juno herself, ami not of. my asking.'' "In other words," said Miss Rosa, Tery nastily, -"Jane ran atler you." "la other jrords. Elm certainly lid." "Well," salil Hiss Rosa', glaringly, 'I nover expected lo hear any man say such a Ihlug about a girl! lu my young days men were horsewhipped for less." "Nevertheless," paid Howard, "il s so. But I certainly hadn't the conceit t» Imagine that Jano took iny serious Interest in me. I am i complete itranger here, as you ;now, and I hart no friends except you nnd Jane. You wero very kind .0 ir.e. you yourself told me thai I was your kin, lhat I was always welcome In your house. I am sorry that I misunderstood you. I nm more than sorry for what has happened. I know Uiat I should have been franker with Jano at first, and that I shouldn't have come here 60 much, or taken her out so often.' Then ha saw that Miss Rosa'i eyes were full ot tears and that her plump chin was trembling. "Oh. H o w a r i," Bha quavered, "Jane's so cfi'Jicuff/ She's ilwayj been difficult! I thought you liked her! I thought shs might be bapp; with youl Somebody of her very own. you know." ".Miss Roaa, please! I feel liko a scum!" JIJISS ROSA dried her oyes and 11 straightened: "When she came In, tiie blamed us—aha said. II was my fault, II wia your .fault. It was Amy'a fault, U was everybody's fault but her. own—I couldn't lei her eo. she was too hurt, and nobody young ever reasons about feel lags while they're feeling ihera cares about Howard." you, sha reall> iliarp things to you, Howard, hut I. didn't mean them, exactly, they ' vero Just the conventional reaction. A'o'll holh havo to forget them. Your Instinct Is right, Amy'll make a much bcller wife, for you than Jane, In fact I'm not sure but that she's much too gooii for you—" "I know she IE," h» admitted mmbly. "Miss Rosa, If there's any- Ihing I can do. If you'd like me .0 go awny, I'll gladly do it. Amy Ihought If nothing was known about her and me, for a while, It would b» easier for Jane, she wouldn't bo questioned or dis- urbed." "You don't need to worry aboul thai. Jnno will make up a better story than you or Amy could In a year. And sho declares she's going away and. If I can arrange it, I'm going to let her. She's in that raw stale now where everylhing familiar will only Irritate her more, bill if sho sees new things and now [woplo she can pretend what slio ikes anil it will divert her and ^ease her down." After ho hart gone Miss Rosa sat still for a few minutes looking, for all the gravity In her face, very much like a piece of her own well- kept overstuffed, furniture. Now cha must tackle. Jane and she felt loath to begin. At last, with the courage ot a seasoned whist player when dealt the poorest cards and partnered by stupidity, she began her task. The door was, as she had told Howard, locked. Jane was lying on the bed anil at first she would nol reply to the knock. Miss Rosa, persisted. "Jane," she slid gently, "if you want to go away, we've got to talk about It. There are pracllcal arrangements, your packing, and your clothes and whera you're going, and money: you can't just get on the train and set ott for nowhere In particular." 'TWERE was a pause, then, tho ^ key turned. "You can come In," said J»ne. "but don't Fay anything about what's happened." She was disable, but resolved. Only ber ;-voll«3 eyes and set lies marked -rill ook after me ami I'm not going to a resort. I'm going where I can get elhiug to do and v.liere penple are olive—and things arc going in." Miss Rosa guarded ber espre.v ;ion and her speech. "Dn yon nu-:-i •on want to go to work, nnd » position somewhere? But v.hai j'itt •on do?" fell bach on tlio story of Ann Veronica ami rapidly adapted t lo her owii need?. "I can Fltidy soracllilug. I can train myself fnr something. I've gul my own income, I can do as I like." llss Rosa was canciit In the dt£ stick of her own pily ami UK-ID?standing of Jane, and her sulld common sense. "You'll have your own income when you're C.S. Jajia. nnd lhat won't he for four years. The money your father left It In be trustee's hands nnd Is paid to mo TL3 your guardian, and "It you try lo stnp me. I'll kill myself," said Jane, ami her vnics turned Miss Rosa coM. Al lhat momeal sho knew [lint Jano was actually ready to kill h;rs=lf. '—and though." went on Misj Rosa Instantly, "it Isn't regular exactly, there'll be no Ironhle Mimit funds. I only ask yoi> to be definite." 'Definile about what?" 'Definite about whal you waul to do and where you want to go."' "I'd like to go lo London." Miss Rosa cast about fnr an objection which would be strong, hut not personal from herself. "But you'd have to wait fnr a passport, 10 days or so at least." "Then—then I'll go to New York." Miss Rosa gasped with relief. "Well. I can tell you." .lane threw tho words al her like Mones, "lhal I'm going to do everything and go every place. And I'm never coming back to this dumb tow» as Ions as I live. And I'll new forgive Amy I.owe for what she'i t<tn» to me, never, never, never." "I thluk." replied.
