The commil- tee fell lhal one of the most glaring errors in Ihe present courthouse setup all over Arkansas is that the office which should have the best pay and the largest slaff, Ihe assessor's office, is actually the county's poor relation. II won't work. It hasn't worked. Now we've to figure out something that will work — and the Joint Tax R-vision Committee said so. And Arkansas doesn't have much time to do it in, either. The fact is that the myth about stale-wide laxes and state aid carrying Ihe public school burden without effective assessing and taxing at the local districl level has exploded. All Ihosc slate-wide special taxes Arkansas is so fond of haven't devoted to stale-wide purposes. Not at all. Instead, they have been systematically robbed, raided, and diverted. We enacted the 2 per cent sales lax in 1935, a measure I helped promole when low properly values and a bankrupt school system left us no allcrnalive. Bui the sales tax, inslead of being treated -s merely a supplement to local property taxos, came to be viewed as a substilute for them. This failure to assess and tax adequately at the districl level broke Ihe back of the state-aid program. For the city school dislricls of Arkansas, holding the lion's share of properly and wealth, dug into the slalc funds on the assumption that they personally were entitled to much of that money because it had been •collected within their corporate limits. ^.Little Rock was, before the tax IrCollapse a couple of years ago, gelling $650,000 a year in slate aid for its school district. I looked into this mailer personally, entirely aside from our work on the Joinl Tax Revision Commiltee. Here's what I found out about Ihe Lillle ; Bock school district;! For the 1952-53 school year its assessors instead of electing them. Cherry wouldn't say today whether he believes they should be elected or appointed. Gentry said it would be unthinkable to start out the tax revision program by "educating the tax assessors." He added that educating them isn't necessary because they are well awar^ of what needs to be done. All they need, he said, is a means to accomplish it; Paul Hanshaw.

Reuther seemed virtually assured today of becoming the CIOs new president after a (/PI * close and Tjitlcr political battle desert casl among CIO unions. Between The youthful, fiery president of March Air the million-member Aulo Workers Union shrewdly masler-minded a fight for CIO convenlion votes and apprcntly was a winner over CIO Vice President Allan S. Haywood. Reuther claimed "overwhelming victory" after the rubber and oil workers unions' rep resenling more lhan 400,000 members, came out laic last night for Reuther following ardent, wooing by Haywood adherents. The rubber and 'oil unions previously had been neutral. The fight for the CIO presidency as successor to the late Philip Murray still may go to a convention showdown vote on Thursday. The 64-year-old Haywood and David J. McDonald, newly named president of the CIO United Stcel- vorkcrs, another million-m e mber group and the core of Haywood's slrenglh, refused to admit defeal. McDonald maintained "evcry- ..hing is the same" and said the laywood group would continue to ight all Ihe way. It was considered likely, how- jver, that in the last analysis the llaywood group would sup port Reutber to avert any open convention split that might drive a deep wedge into CIO ranks.
