All the city districts had grown lax with their assessments under the illusion that they could depend on the 2 per cent sales tax —.and it took the threat of a 3 per cent sales lax to make them realize where we were headed. Senator Howell's theory that the j sales tax collections in Little Rock or any other city afford a "honeymoon" for rural districts is twice wrong. In the first place, there is plenty of evidence that the cities got back a good share of what they gave; and in the second place, cities are the sole source of sales tax collections because cities are where you find stores — you certainly don't find any important stores in the country. And so the tax collections credited to Litlle Rock or any olher town have been • contributed by all the people, not . just the !' town.
