JrtH h0ped ** a Constitutional-revision
ould be drawn up which would get rid of the
clutter, improve the organization, and still retain
Pnnof-w- tested MfeKuards of the old
Constitution. We are not satisfied that this has
The propose „ew Constitution has got rid of a
lot of the clutter, is far more efficiently organized
than the old one, and has many points in its favor.
But it is so loaded with qualifying clauses, all of
them aimed at the creation of an all-powerful and
free-wheeling Legislature, that we find ourselves
unable to accept any of it without very serious
These reservations stem from a basic distrust
of the Legislative branch of government as we
have known it in Texas during the past four
decades...a distrust soundly based on
extraordinarily shoddy and irresponsible political
activities which we have observed on many
occasions in the Legislature...which have made
this observer mighty leery of giving the kind of
unrestricted power to the Legislative branch of
government which we believe this proposed new
Constitution does give.
So, in spite of the many good points which we
see in the proposed new Constitution...good
points which, numerically at least, heavily
outnumber the bad...we think it is too-dangerous
a document to be let loose in our state.
Some of the eight Articles might be acceptable,
on balance, even at that...but we are extremely
mistrustful of the wisdom or the practicality of
old Constitution, for precisely the same reasons
that we believe the old Constitution needs to be
revised. The old Constitution is such a
hodge-podge of organization that implementing
any of the eight new propositions into the old
document, without implementing them all and
doing away entirely with the old Constitution,
must result in utter chaos.
Suppose, for horrible example, that only
Proposition Seven (the General Provisions
article) is adopted. These same General
Provisions which are dealt with in this proposal
are scattered throughout many of the seventeen
articles which make up the old Constitution. The
new General Provisions, if adopted as an
amendment to the old constitution, would have to
supercede parts of several remaining articles of
the Constitution...thus adding immeasurably to
the confusion which already exists.
It is our considered judgment, based on
extensive study of these proposals and of pro and
con arguments advanced by knowledgeable state
officials about them, that parts of the new
proposed Constitution are unacceptable because
of what we consider dangerous flaws, and that
common sense dictates a vote against all eight
rather than a piecemeal selection of amendments
which could result in total confusion.
We still believe that the old State Constitution
needs careful revision, but we are firmly
convinced that this isn't it.
We urge all voters to study these issues
carefully, and to vote on them Tuesday, if you do
vc , with great care and out of a considered
judgment, not prejudice. The Constitution is our
basic law...something we'll have to live with for a
long time...and we should make changes only for
the better. We could make it worse.
Just one little word

authorities, such as our cities, counties, and school
districts to reduce their tax rates and/or
assessment ratios or property taxes would go
This required re-evaluation could add $75
billion to the $125 billion in property values now
'claimed' on the tax rolls," says the Comptroller.
"That's a 60 per cent increase any way you cut
it, and at today's tax rates, that would be
approximately $750 million in new property taxes
Presumably local taxing authorities would
tailor their assessment ratios as they do now to
provide only the amount of tax money needed for
their operations, so the net effect might be the
same at the local levels...but all of these taxing
authorities would be required to use the state
We think that uniform state-wide valuations
would be a good and fair method of assessment,
provided that this actually can be done on a
state-wide basis...but we agree with Comptroller
Bullock that the proposition needs to be
understood "in plain English."
Bullock is a realist, with a sense of humor. "I
think most homeowners believe that all real
property should be taxed in an equal and uniform
manner," he says. "However, it's been my
experience that they are referring to the other
fella's property because they believe theirs is
already over-valued and over-taxed."

Unfortunately, we can't promise that It will make costs of printed
materials mueh cheaper ...the trend all seems to be in the opposite
direetion...biit we expect that it will improve the efficiency and
speed of production, and the quality in many cases, and enable yon
to get what you want when you want it. We're doing our best to
keep pace with progress in every phase of our business, just as
many other Canadian businesses are doing. We think Our Town
deserves the best of everything.
