Only one of the visiting firemen, however, would talk out loud — Grower Gaskins of Wynne, the Cross county assessor. He said sadly, "We are the forgotten men in the courthouse." It's absurd, of course, to imagine there's anything personal in this critical discussion about any Arkansas county lax assessor, present or past. The Joint Tax Revision Committee simply pointed out, unanimously, that the elective system of tax assessors has failed — and the failure goes back a generation or more. -^^^^^^^^^^H ^^^MMk^k. ^^^^I^M|[^^^ .^MMMatt.

The committee felt that one of the most glaring errors in the present courthouse setup all over Arkansas is that the office which should have the best pay and the largest staff, the assessor's office, is actually the county's poor relation. It 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 state-wide taxes and state aid carrying the public school burden without effective assessing and taxing at the local district level has exploded. All those state-wide special taxes Arkansas is so fond of haven't devoted to state-wide purposes. Not at all. Instead, they have been systematically robbed, raided, and diverted. We enacted the 2 per cent sales tax in 1935, a measure I helped promote when low property values and a bankrupt school system left us no alternative. But the sales tax, instead of being treated -s merely a supplement to local property taxos, came to be viewed as a substitute for them. This failure to assess and tax adequately at the district level broke the back of the state-aid program. For the city school districts of Arkansas, holding the lion's share of property and wealth, dug into the state funds on the assumption that they personally were entitled to much of that money because it had been •collected within their corporate limits. a ^. kittle Rock was, before the tax IrCollapse a couple of years ago, getting $650,000 a year in state aid for its school district. I looked into this matter personally, entirely aside from our work on the Joint Tax Revision Committee. Here's what I found out about the Little ; Bock school district;! For the 1952-53 school yeai- 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. Jonesboro, yesterday was elected president ot thi. assessors, succeeding Grovcr Askins, Wynne. Other officers included Jim Ross, Polk County, vico president, and E. R. Weeks, Lonoke County, secretary-treasurer. Reuthers Is All But in as Union Chief By NORMAN WALKER ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. Walter P. Reuther seemed virtually assured today of becoming the CIOs new president after a (/PI * close and bitter political battle desert casl among CIO unions. Between The youthful, fiery president of March Air the million-member Auto Workers Union shrewdly master-minded a fight for CIO convention 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 resenting more than 400,000 members, came out late 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- vorkers, another million-m e mber group and the core of Haywood's strength, refused to admit defeat. McDonald maintained "every- ..hing is the same" and said the laywood group would continue to ight all the 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.

An Air Force C-47, with 13 men aboard, apparently crashed dur- Jng Ihe night at the 8,000 foot level in the San Barnardino mountains, the sheriffs office reported todiy. Deputy Sheriff Loring Poleman of Victorvillc said he saw a big fire in the mountains north 1 of hero and west of Big Bear valley about 4 a.m., which finally died out. Cheeking again at daybreak, he could still sec smoke from the spot, well above the snowlinc, which was about 4500 feet high.
