PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT NO. 40 Proposed by Petition of the People POPULAR NAME OF -"--" ME NT AMEND- by will, inheritance or gift is not consistent with the ideals and sentiments of the American people. ! This was an arbitrary and debatable dictum. Americans for generations had evinced a desire to their families. State legislatures and national Congress, had created taxes on estates and inheritances . un away but this was not necessarily proof that the people had decided to repudiate the old custom. The debates and the propaganda revealed, on the contrary, an intention to use the money thus acquired for the going expenses of government and to reduce'the ecf> nomic power of "dead hands" over large areas of industry and large groups of workers. Emotional resentment was clearly revealed against the grotuesque luxury provided for idle and supercillious icirs. by contrast with the bleak condition of workers whose toil continued to create the income. Several generations of Roosevelts and Delanos were among these parasites. By his use of the qualifying word "vast" in his discussion of fortunes, Mr. Roosevelt established a Di-idge by which he could retreal to safe ground when he should be challenged during his life as a beneficiary of a custom which he condemned and, historically, aftei his own death, as one who prac tised an evil which he had de plored. To a man who can leave only $3,000 to his family, an estate of $50,000 is "vast" although the way Leo Durocher used o — Bill probably would have held he job indefinitely . . .

Provided that cities of- the first and second class may issue by and with the consent of a majority of the qualified electors of said municipality voting on the question at an election held for the purpose, bonds in sums and for the purposes approved by such majority at such election as follows: For Ihe payment of any indebtedness existing at the time of the adoption of this amendment for the purchase of rights of way for construction of public streets, "'• leys and boulevards within of fire fighting apparatus and fire alarm systems; for the purchase of street cleaning apparatus; for the purchase of sites for, construc- ,ion of, and equipment of city halls, j auditoriums, prisons, libraries, hospitals, public abbatoirs, incinerators or garbage disposal plants; for buildings for the housing of fire fighting apparatus; for Ihe construction of viaducts and bridges; and for the purpose of purchasing, extending, improving, enlarging building, or construclion of waler works or light plants and distribution systems therefor.

"But it is adequately served by a reasonable inheritance." By the will of his mother, Mr. Roosevelt received nine-tenths of her entire estale of $1,089,872, net The proponents of taxation to reduce "vast" cstales had rcsenl- ed the manner by which many such accumulations had been established. It was argued that even though the methods had been legal they were, in many cases, immoral because the founders had been shrewd fellows who felt out gaps in the laws and took advantage of Ihem. Or the rich men had paid low wages to the workers Roosevelt, himself, at Hyde Park, paid starvation wages. To go no further back than the presidents maternal grandfather, Warren Delano, who died in 1898, we find that he left an estate of $1,338.000. President Roosevelt had condemned the inheritance of vast estales derived from the exerlions of lieved that equally large fortunes, derived from vices and misfortunes of humanity, were morally Roosevelt ever discovered or had the fidelity to report that Warren Delano was an opium smuggler. Nor is there any more '^han xhq sketchiest reference to the fact that Jes Roosevelt, ihc "*• president's father, had profiteered in the tragedy of the Southern stales after Ihe Civil War.

Hearing Friday on , Motion by Bush Arkadelphia, Arkansas—Judge S, M.

Judge Bush will exchange circuits with Judge Bone in order that the latter may preside over the eighth Judicial District during the hearing If the motion for dismissal is denied, the contest suit will follow shortly, it was believed. Brown and his lawyers have not made any sl- atcmenl as to whether or not Judge Bone will be acceptable for the he a ring and the suit. Brown alleged in his suit that in Clark county there were partisan judges and clerks in certain prccin- ts, and that many people voted for Judge Bush who had no poll tax receipts. He also charged that there were irregularities connected with the voting of absentees ai»d that there were other illegal procedures. He accused the Clark county democratic central committee of wrong procedures for the holding of the election. The boxes cited in pa- rlicular were Whelon Springs, Curlis, Fendly and the absentee box. In answer filed in the circuit co irt here September -11, Judge Bush denied every charge made by Br- r.svn and filed his motion for dis missal on the grounds that: (1) Seven of the 14 persons support} n g the accompanied affidavit were unqualified; (2) Six of the cigners had failed to assess their poll tax, t3) One signer is not a member of the Democralic party.
