A Problem for the Legislature Members of the Arkansas general assembly who .take thoir rqs^ansi)- bilitics seriously may well view with misgivings Uio difficulties which the state's electorate lias hcnpcd upon their .shoulders. I'lio people at last Tuesday's election: adopted an amendment, to the state constiuition exempting homesteads from the 8.7 mill state general property tax. They also approved an initiated act providing Tor free textbooks through the eighth grade in" "all 'the-public schools ot the state. The people, however, made no pijo- vision> for making up the loss in revenue which will result from homestead ' exemption, nor for supplying the money which it will take to provide free textbooks. Tliose little mutters are -left to the legislature. The 8.7 mill state general properly tax-is levied principally for ihc benefit of the schools. Three mills of it goes into the common school fund, for apportionment among the school districts of the state. Part of it goes to the vocational prtticaliou program, ' the stale university, the foiir. state A. , aiu!.: M., colleges, the slate teachers' colleges and the A. nnd M. college • for negroes. All of these, us well as , the already isadly inadeiiimto Confederate pension fund, will suffer as a .result of the approval given the homestead exemption proposal. The common school fund may be hit from two.directions. Bcsidep'sut'-, -"'- fering the loss of its share';6f-'hoTiie- ' stead taxes this fund may be called iipon to provide the money required for the purchase of textbooks. In . that case pupils in some school dis- tricts'may get free books at the cost - of - reduced school terms. The situation is especially, unfortunate in view of the fact that many liome owners apparently voted (for .the ho'mestead exemption amendment under a misapprehension. The y thought they were getting complete -• tax exemption. Actually .their tax bills will be reduced just 87 cents per $100 of assessed value of the property they occupy, tip to $1,000 assessed valuation. Thus the saving on a house assessed at §500 will be $4.35 per year and the maximum annual saving to any taxpayer will be ?8.70. There will be small benefit to' any taxpayer bill in the aggregate the amount involved is large nnd un- .OUT • f '/"DON'T mrMB~pI6pis ices some new source of revenue can be found to make up for it a number of essential public services will be seriously handicapped. The People Acted When The'. Legislature Failed ' The adoption ol Amendment No, 25, tlic rc- api»rllonment measure, was a vindication of fairness and Justice by Die voters of Uio state. But It was at the same time an Indictment and reproach for (he legislative system. As the final entry In n M-ycar record, it testified tlial the yicopto of Arkansas could not rely on tlielr legislature to discharge n duty which the state consllUitlon specifically demands and orders. The legislature meets every two years, It is maintained nl largo expense mid vested wllli all necessary powers In order Hint it nmy ennct sucli laws as may be needed by the people of the'slate. Nevertheless the jicoplo have to become legislators themselves, not only to get laws enacted for new or special purposes, 1ml even to make fundamental provisions of the constitution effective. Though equal representation of equal populations In thcj, house and sennlo Is n fundamental of representative government, private citizens luul to come forward to correct (ho existing llngrant Injustices anil provide for fair apportionment In the future. —Arkansas aazclle.

KOW 00 OX WITH Tiru STORY CHAPTER XXVIll XT ATE look a bus lo Ihe cily ncxl day and shopped for material for Caroline's dress. She found a dove-colored corded silk which copied an old weave. It was $2 n yard, and, since 10 yards were required, the total cost was rallier staguerirn;. There was old-fashioned ribbon to bo bought, too, and thread for sewing. "Twenty-five dollars out o£ Brown Boy's hide," Kate reflected. "But it doesn't matter, if only I can make Carolina lool: right." The following morning Kate cut out 'the dress, adapting Ihc tight bodice and straight bouffant skirt of the original model. Success attended her labors. Though the little upstairs bedroom was distressingly hot, enthusiasm kept her at the sewing machine until Carolina forcibly took her downstairs lo lunch. Afterward they had another filling, Caroline standing patiently while Kale fashioned Ihe lining lo her figure and the dress to the lining. At 4 o'clock Caroline protested, I can't try on Ihc thing another time. Fold it and put it away till tomorrow. We're both exhausted. Look! There conici- Zcke with (lie ice. I'll go down nnd make iced tea for us." Presently she called Kate down to the dining room, where she had the tea and tomato sandwiches waiting. "And here's a note Zeke brought from Cynthia. She's decided to entertain informally for Eve and Morgan tonight. A crazy shower. Everybody's supposed to bring 'something discouraging (o divorce.' Here. Head the letter yourself." "Let's go, Caroline!" Kate exclaimed. "I'll take a recipe for thai cheese-cake Morgan's so crazy about, if you dare me." "It's a cute idea," Caroline said. "But are you sure you want to go, Kate? There's no use persecuting yourself." "I want to go," Kate tolcl her firmly, "jf I'm going to spend the rest of my life in the same set with Morgan and Eve, the sooner I get used to them belonging to each other the belter." » « « • 'J'HIS sounded reasonable to Caroline, so she did not try to dissuade her. The parly, like all of Cynthia's affairs, went oft* with a bang. There was a bowl of champagne punch lo start things off, and later they opened the gifts. The- "discouragements to divorce" were varied and ridiculous, ranging from biscuit cutters to kiss-proof lipstick for Eve, and from bedroom slip- tiers to bottles of bourbon for Morgan. Kate presented her recipe nnd managed to do it so gaily, clinging lo Johnnie Daird's dependable arm he while, thai no one remembered to feel sorry lor her. Only Eve looked for malice (and perhaps found il) in the little recipe written on the kitchen card and labeled, "Kale Meed's Cheesecake. A Favorite of Morgan's." Later In Ihc evening Morgan sought out Kate where she was reading palms in the library and insisted on her dancing wilh him After a moment's hesitation arid much protest from lier crowd Kate went. It was the first time she had danced with him since the breaking of their engagement. The strangeness of being in his arms yet knowing they were worlds apart, reduced her to thoughtful silence. She- thought, "I. usid to be thrilled .when we danced! I'm not now. It's just like dancing with anybody else. That's lucky for m e. , I Ic's.Eve's— cut i rely Eve's." • Morgan said," "Let's go outside Kate. . It's beastly hot here." She protested weaklyj-lier voice dying in ,her throat. She could think of no reason for refusing Other couples. Were outside—Eve herself, no doubt—for the radio music was hardly good enough for dancing. They went outdoors. The porch was full, and Morgan said, taking hoi- arm, "My car's parked out by the garage. We'll go sit there." In flic car Morgan did riot'light a cignret as she expected him to dp. She noticed that, he seemed morosely silent, linrdly answering when she ..talked. Presently he said, "So you've taken up palmistry, have .you?" Kate answered, "My one parlor trick. Don't belittle it." "Just n way of holding hands," he 'accused. "Don't be silly. People don't need an excuse for holding hands. They just cV> it if they want to." "Then let's do il. I'd enjoy, il." .Again -Kate saicl,^v."Don't be silly!; 1 ' She did riot know thabhe was Verging bh drunkenness,'be- cause his quietness was so decciv- . .. "It doesn't seem silly to me," he 1 -' told her with dginity. "j' m sorry;; it seems so to you. It would be ; i rather heavenly, as I look at it." i Kate was dismayed. Was Mor-;' gan actually making love to her? : But no! Things like that simply didn't happen. Morgan was engaged to marry Eve Elwell in October and this was a party in their honor. To return to the impersonal, she said, "Aren't the Chenaults late in going to Michigan this year? They used to go the first of July." ."Later than usual," Morgan said. "But what does time matter? What does anything matter any more?": * * » IT ATE laughed Uncertainly': "Time matters a lot if you live) in the country at preserving time. I suppose the Ehvells will soon be going to Michigan, too. Of course you'll spend August with them?" •' "Why do you ask that question?" "To make conversation," Kate retorted angrily. "You've certainly contributed very little of your own accord." "So that's it. I thought maybe my actions interested you." "Of course your actions intcreS»Li ...e," Kate said quickly. "I'UialJT ways be interested in you, Morgan; ' You've shared too much of my young emotional life to seem quite like other men to me, ever." .' "The Happiest hours IHre ever known were with you, Kate." ' : He'lenned toward her and gathered her'into a close embrace, kissing her 'surprised lips, caressing her surprised face. "You're;not kissing back, 'Kate! Don't trort me like this, darling. Dbn't punish me for the way . I'vo jre'a'tcd you, r want you again. .Let's go away from ; this place! ' Let's -start driving now.' Wc;'married in the morning---" ' Kate pushed him from her,- feeling only aversion- arid amazement. She knew- now that her love for him was not a thing held in leash, but- something dead - and extinct, like 'art old cinder. • •Kate got out of the car .and Closed the door: She went quickly to the house and found Cynthia: She snid, "Some strong cbiTee; for Morgan, Cyn! He's' In his car, out by thc.gnrags.- Sober him up before Eve finds him. I'm going home. Headache—" . ' • "Oh," Cynthia said, looking ' at her swiftly.
