One such bill is mx reuc:tian, the only tax rc6u:'.Kcn measure of any com:quen ce p2sed in many ycar. Most of th,s week has been pent in approval or disapproval of the re"omme'nda.tions of c,n- forces. This week began with a dent of the town of Centr,eville for the twenty-three years, I have ebserved the followln actions and I have haft the fol- lowing thought: Everybody wants certain ac- complish.merits and improve- menLs for our town. but they wanL somebody else to do the work and some'body else to bear the expense. Fortunately, there are a few 14.-'our .session and the entire somebodies who try to work and week Icroved to be very tiring, accomplish :things under ver: limited means and with just a Once a bill has been passed by one house of 'the' Legislature, it mus be acted on by the op- posite house. If the opposite house hculd amend sr pa:s the measure out with amendments or a different meaning , then it must be concurred in by .the origi'nating house. If each house does not agree in amendments and so forth then it mast go to a confermce sommlttee con- sisting of three members from each ,house.

The Legislature this week completed establishing at the tate Penitentiary'a Director of Corrections who will ,take full responsibility [[or the ,operation of the Penitentiary. A bill was passed by the House to include highway patrol ex- ble agreemen,t between eac.h .ouse, and it,again must be ac- cepted or rejected. Such was the plight of :the Small Loans BilL The House of Represe,nta- tires fel.t that they passed a bill that everyone could live with. The Senate fit ,to amend it in ,a manner that the House could not accept. It then was sent to conference, but the House re.fused to accep:t the c:cnference report and hus the "the WoodWIle Repubtt00an/ WoodWIte, "MfisI.Ippt tarily that our town could have the adv.a.n.tages wc now en,joy. There is a limit to what the same few somebodies can ac- complish over and over thrdough the years by '.themselves. while all the others stand on the side- lh.,es and not only refuse ,to help, but cri.timze.
