Not only did Smith in lai'ifc part plan the program of economy and readjustment which has re-established tlie state's credit, bill he has been the treasury wiik'li dog, chiefly responsible, for blocking attempts ill dc(- slruclivo Klcvialion from that program. Ii'is candidacy; for governor,, aiy iioiinced Saturday, is certain to appeal to those who believe that what Arkansas chiefly needs is a continuance of that direful watch upon expenditures which has been the Fu- trcll administration's chief contribution to the welfare of the state. // Tip lo ttttsiness Hack in 1933, officials of the Union Pacific railroad decided that if the. business of railroading were to im- urove it must begin pulling itself up by its own bootstraps. Accordingly, they set about "murchaivdising" the road's passenger acvvicc. the juulor-driveil, streamlined train was their h'rsl contribution. \ Next, . they '"iniuiguratcd air-conditioning on nearly all the main-lino passenger cars. After that came a general regeneration of services, climaxed by a reduction in fares. And what happened? The 1B3C report of the thiion I'acilic reveals nn increase of about 21 per cent in passenger revenues for last year, while freight business picked up more than G per cent, duo to faster trains. Here is about the best tip that has emanated from the linancial pages in a long while. H -should carry particular significance, to the eastern railroads that objected to the rate rdihiclion order of ihc Interstate Commerce Commission. Pccple are living what Is Hie use of living longer If we are not happy, with economic conditions what they are and the Infernal noise of cities, and with machinery we have created running, away \vith us? —Lord Horrtcr, physician to King Edward VIII of England. Encouraging Returns At least G50 Americans who ordinarily would have been in their graves are .still living today because of a- marked reduction in motor vehicle »e- cidenls during the lir.-t three months of this year. Moreover, the National Safely Council makes the encouraging prediction that, if the present trend toward safer driving continues, it is likely that some 3,300 lives will have been spared by (he end of JM(i. Tlio council reports tlnil (1,850 persons have losl their lives in motor vehicle accidents so far this year. For tho same period in 1035, 7,500 were killed. One of the most encouraging lig- urcH in the whole compilation, however, in an J8 per cent reduction for March alone. It indicates thai the American public can gel down to sane, intelligent driving if it tries. So let's keep at thin life-saving business. MONDAY, MAY SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Just What Do They Mean by "County Bcltcvmciil?" When the members of Die Arkansas County Judges Association tiilk of a lo:n legislative program "for county betterment and Brciit- cr efficiency In county government," what brand of betterment do they have In mind? Arc they proposing to work for salary acts of tho type that luwc TO greatly reduced the chain on (jcneral funds In I'ulaskl. Union and ,olhci counties? Will they seek lo combat multiple indictments and other extravagances that, make circuit, court expense excessive? Will Ilicy support llic criminal code reform mciiMirc It Is proposed lo Initiate? Will they mivkc themselves leaders In a movement to Install labor-saving, money-saving office equipment and methods In their court houses? Or arc they proposing lo put on the state tilings that are now done and expenses Unit nri! now borne by the counties? Their president, Judge II. M. fJiillivou of Baxter county, says the county Judges "will not, benclU by a nickel" from tlic proposed legislation. But, the judge of another county Is behind a movement lo transfer 15 per cent of the sn!r>s tax from the public schools into county general funds. And discussion at. the state association meeting over which Judge Ruthvcn presided was said to Indicate that a majority ot the Jmlgc.i will favor "returning to the counties their share" o[ the state gasoline tax. When better county government is talked about, it should not be approached with tho Idea of directly or indirectly supporting conitty governments by stale subsidies, ff n business corporation had a branch that was losing money for Jack of efficient and vigilant management, or for Incurable lack of strength, It world not meet the situation by subsidizing that branch, Tho sound procedure is to reform county organization nml machinery to mnkc comities sel!-supporting. —Arkansas Gazette.
