Ending Sept. 30, 19S4 — 3,537 PRICE 5c i OUR DAILY BREAD Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn Proposals on Ballot in General Election When your editor left town on vacation earlier this month he took with him his notes on an unfinished chore — the biennial piece in which the newspaper reviews .referenda matter on the general election ballot. This Report, therefore, reaches you by mail. Facing you Tuesday are three constitutional amendment proposals and a referred act of the legislature. Public opinion is divided on all four measures. However, your editor is going to vote for three out of the four — on his absentee ballot. Here is our analysis, for whatever it is worth: Proposed Amendment 43: This is the property tax revision measure — sometimes called "the 100% as- fcsessment bill." It was dragged into the Democratic pri- ^mary campaigns last summer but if you are going to try to understand what the amendment's about you will have to forget what you heard back yonder. It was said, for instance, that if you voted for No. 43 you automatically voted to increase.your property taxes five times — a ridiculous untruth. No. 43 would change the assessing base, but as the assessment goes up the millage rate comes down, leaving the average taxpayer's bill unchanged in terms of dollars. There would be no general increase in the dollar V| *value of the property tax unless the ^citizens themselves voted for such an increase in some local tax election after the amendment were adopted. No. 43 is patterned after the Iowa Local Budget Law. One of its most important provisions is that the expense budget of local government must be submitted to the voters annually. If the'proposed budget is the same as the preceding year's there would be no change in the tax dollars because officials would be required to extend a millage rate only sufficient'to cover the budget, after taking into account any balances left fover in previous funds. -H-a higher budget were authorized by the voters then, of course, the millage rate would be . increased proportionately. But if a higher budget were rejected by the voters then local officials would have to operate on the same budget, they used the previous year, with no change in the tax dollar. , ;• . . It will be argued that in the long run No. ( 43 could increase local property taxes as the people might decide to vote for larger budgets. This truth is obvious..- But isn't this a calculated risk in any democracy? No. 43 is a proposal, to. reform and equalise assess- ^ments for the property fax which is the mainstfijy,;^f local government — schools, county, and city. Without such reform we are being compelled year after year to seek an increasing percentage of local governmental support from state and federal agencies. If they're going to pay our bills they'll run our" show 'for us—— and local self- government will be a dead duck. Your editor doesn't relish higher millage rates any more than other property owners do, but he does believe, and so do a lot of other thoughtful citizens, that all ^property ought to be on-the tax books and equally assessed — and that's the basic idea behind No. 43.

It does not apply to the man elected governor on Tuesday but takes effect with the official .. chosen in 1956. * This is a good and sound proposal. The fact that it gives Orval Faubus, a man we fought in the Democratic runoff primary, a chance at six years in office, makes not the slightest difference. A two-year term simply doesn't give any governor time to attend to public business adequately before having to resume campaigning, for re-election. A single four-year package is the answer.

Faubus spoke at Mountain Hornaj this morning and then moved back to Little Rock for an afternoon telecast. Remmel signed the authorization for "poll watchers" at Corning as he moved his campaign into Clay County — the 72nd county he has visited since he started his handshaking tour. The Little Rock mayor scheduled two 3 Firemen Die and 24 Hurt in Explosion PHILADELPHIA (/P) — ' ranking fire department officers were killed and 24 other firemen and policemen injured today in an explosion confined entirely to tho rear yard of a north Philadelphia chemical manufacturing plant. The violent blast, without any fire, occurred minutes after a tel- Three- ephoned warning fire company to summoned investigate broadcasts over a Blytheville radio station today. Candidates are permitted by law to designate representatives to watch the counting of ballots at polling places. Remmel said that he was setting up the army o£ watchers in order to avoid being "counted out" of the race. Faubus, meanwhile, claimed that the "inner circle" of the Republican Party was debating whether to 'hit me with another Commonwealth College deal. "I don't know what this big deal concerns," Faubus said. "I .only know that it is being planned." The stepped-up campaign will come to a climax in next Tuesday's voting. Both men took jabs at the oth. er's campaign tactics in speeches yesterday and last night, Remmel appeared on a filmed telecast from Little Rock and Faubus addressed a 'Republicans for Faubus" ga- by Buildings'"were shattered.: the the Russia Warned of Detention of Embassy Wives By KENNETH BRODNEY ' MOSCOW (UP) U .S. Am bassador Foreign Minister Vyaclv on Soviet Foreign Minister Vyaeh- eslav M. Molotov today to warn that Washington takes a serious view of the detention of two American embassy wives by Moscow police. The U.S. embassy said Bohlen met Molotov at the Kremlin instead of the forel'gn ministry but declined to give further details. It was known, however, that Boh len .wanted to tell Molotov of the terious concern shown by .Washington over the Soviat treatment of personnel entitled to diplomatic immunity. One of the women, attractive blonde Mrs. Betty Sommerlattc ife: of the embassy's second sec etary, was accused by the Rus lans of dapping a Soviet vvorkoi nd pushing a woman textile worl r.

A free Bar-B-Q supper was served in the coliseum in Hope Fail Park. Following supper, the group enjoyed games led by Mrs. William Schooley. county recreational lead Proposed Amendment 45: This is a measure to give salary increases to the state's qonstitutional officers and the legislature. Basically we are in sympathy with the proposal. No man can possibly serve in'the Arkansas legislature at the present pay scale without making a personal sacrifice. And as a general policy we think government has'to offer decent salaries aj). along the line if the people expect competent public service. But someone blundered in the drafting of the several ^.amendments which.the 1953 legislature has submitted to the people in this 1954 general election. One of those proposals, No. 44, calls for a four-year term for governor. And yet in the same batch here is No. 45 specifying that the governor shall serve two years. This is a conflict which the courts would have to • resolve should both No. 44 and No. 45 be adopted. It seems to your editor that guaranteeing a fpur-year gubernatorial term is the more important of the two questions, and therefore to avoid conflict the salary measure No. 45 should be defeated qt this time.

A feud between him and th Moslem Brotherhood seems to hav reached the stage of open warfare and the brotherhood conducts it warfare with bullet and bomb.

Supporters of Na.s ser set fire to the Cairo headquai ters of the brotherhood yesterday A state of emergency has bee proclaimed throughout Egypt an barbed wire barriers have been so up around Nasser's office. "Cniro dispatches suggest that the government may soon start a drastic purge of the brotherhood leadership.
