COURIER NEWS ON BflLLO! lEfll Mancliuktio Ruler Seeks New Mate Kcapportionment and Free School Text Books Are Among Issues LITTLE EOCK, Ark, — Three constitutional amendments and two Initiated acts will be voted on in Arkansas, Nov. 3. Two other proposals were ruled off the ballot. The supreme court barred A. L. Rotcnberry's proposed old age pension act for insufficiency of Utle. The secretary of f.late held Representative Leo Ny- bcrg's petitions insufficient for admission of an amendment to prevent the legislature from enacting tax bills without popular vote. Measures to be voted on follow Amendment No. 22 is a proposed constitutional amendment which would authorize the stale legislature to pass a law' providing for prosecutions in criminal cases on informations filed by prosecuting attorneys, The proposal drew the active backing of Gov. Futrell, who declared it ivould result in a savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars annually and not remove any legal safeguards from n person charged with crime. The 1835 general assembly s|X>n- sored the amendment by resolution and filed it with the secretary of state March 20, 1935. Tower of Fixing Salaries It provides: That all offenses heretofore required to be prosecuted by indictments may be prosecuted either by indictment by a' , grand jury or information filed' by the prosecuting attorney; thab' the general assembly of Arkansas! '.'hall by law determine the amount! nnd, method of payment of salaries of prosecuting attorneys. Amendment No. 23 would exempt homesteads up to $1000 valuation for taxation. I Lieutenant-Governor Lee Cazort is-' sponsoring the amendment, ji'i'The home of each and every resident of the slate," and amendment says, "whether or not such resident b? married or unmarried male or female, shall be wholly exempt from all state (axes . in all cases where such homestead docs not exceed the assessed valuation of $1060. "Where the assessed valuation of. such homestead exceeds $1000 this exemption shall apply to the first 51000 of such valuation." Exemption CouH Be Increased The referenda gives the legislature anlhprily_Jo' increase the exemption up""to Y2500, requires the ti-nmb)y to restore any funds which might be lost through the exemption, but prohibits it from improving any new tax for tlic purpose. "Nothing herein shall ever be construed, applied or administered EO as lo impair any right of any holder of any bond, note or other obligation heretofore issued or assumed by the state and now outstanding." the proposal reads, "but tills amendment shall in every respect be construed, applied nnd administered so as to fully protect all the legal rights of all such holders." Proposed, constitutional amendment No. 25 seeks to reapportion membership of the state Icgisla- lurc on a population basis The proposal. sponsored bv chambers of commerce in El .Dorado, Texarkana. Blytheville and other South and East Arkan sas cities, would not change the numerical membership of the assembly. The house has 100 the senate 35. ' It would, set up a State Board later than A^Ti, iS^lf make" the apportionment. Each county would he entitled to one representative m the house, the remain- in,? members ivould be distributed among the more jypulous coun- Unequal Representation The board would divide the slate into senatorial districts each district to have one senator who would represent, as nearly „" practicable, an equal number of inhabitants. Sponsors ot the amendment said w.nlc circulating petitions last summer to obtain a vote on the proposal that many counties with meager population had two Rcn- menlaovcs while others YvUh greater population had one. which would provide 'for the state urnishing free text books through the first eight grades of public ;±?, ls v h :' s Jf d J o J 1 «vu» ^ t o Powell Hale, E.

Cazort said a "sympathetic legislature" would have no trouble In finding a source of revenue to furnish the books without levying! additional Inxes. I On Alienists and Trials | Proposed Initiated acl No. 3 seeks lo eliminate complex testl- mony of paid alienists in criminal trials. The act provides that whenever an Insanity.'defense is raised, the Irialajudge- has the ! authority to commit the riefcnd'ant to the Slate hospital for an examinatioi period up to 30 days. Hospital physicians then would submit c vcpo.it to the court. Preservation of the testimoni oi witnesses Is another objective Cue section gives officials authority to take testimony of any witness before a magistrate wher they have reason [o believe the witness will not appear at th trial. The transcribed teslimon could be Introduced when the case was lieard. Professional immunity for news paper men is provided, the act declaring that no writer shall be required to reveal the source of a news story to a grand jury unless it Is shown that the article wa written with malice or "not the public interest. 1 in The act reduces the number of precmptory challenges in jury se- eclion and simplifies prosecution for forgery.
