NEW TYPE LEGISLATURE
IS UP FOR APPRAISAL
It Is not strange that Nebraska
reviewing the recently recessed ini-
tial session of its experimental, one-
house, nonpartisan legislature, is un-
able to decide whether the idea was
worth the trouble.
On the balance sheet after Ne-
braska's new streamlined legisla-
ture adjourned, were many other
things In Its favor and many other
things which showed no improve-
ment over the old two-house legis-

For Instance, the 43 members oi
the unicameral body introduced only
870 bills in this year’s session, as
compared with 1042 bills introduced
by the 133 members of the bicameral
legislature in 1935. However, 220 laws
were enacted this year, the greatest
number since 1921.
The 1937 legislature cost $50,000
less than that of 1935, but its mem-
bers adopted a $54,000,000 budget for
the next two years, exceeding by
$18,000,000 the budget set up in

Work, the unicameral neared the
record for lengthy sessions, and dis-

dicted that a one-house assembly
would work with greater speed.

to obtain detailed facts on budget
needs of state institutions; paved
the way for the previously rejected
Federal Child Labol amendment by
Initiating a change which would
permit voters to pass on amendments
to the C. S. Constitution, and moved
to shorten the state ballot.
An important point of the debate
Which followed the first unicameral
session was that greater criticism
developed over the non-party nomi-
nation and election of members over
What those members did when they
got down to law making.
Democratic and Republican lead-
ers alike, protested this loss of party
responsibility. Although the rolls
showed a Democratic majority, It
was claimed that Gov. R. L. Coch-

JTOR the fifth time, in 1802, the
territory of Louisiana had
changed hands, 40 years after
Spain had taken the district from
France. Now Napoleon was pre-
pared to colonize the New World.
But he was sorely in need of
money due to his costly European
campaigns, and claims of Ameri-
cans in the territory.
; In Paris, Robert R. Livingston,
j famous lawyer who had helped
draft the Declaration of Indepen-
dence and New York state’s con-
stitution, was United States minis-
ter, President Jefferson asked
ihim to negotiate for the purchase
of Louisiana. He sent James Mon-
roe to aid Livingston.
On April 30, 1803, Louisiana
was bought for $11,250,000 in cash
and assumption of France's debts
to Americans, estimated at
In 1904, on the centennial of
this vastly profitable purchase, the
United States issued four stamps,
the one-cent portraying Living-
ston, the two-cent Jefferson, the
three-cent Monroe and the ten-
cent, a map of the United States
showing the new territory.

This objection easily could be the
stumbling block for Nebraska’s noble
experiment. Fortunately, there is no
real evidence that America or any
other free nation would fall under
a political hierarchy if the familiar
two-party system were abolished.
The two-party credo is more or less
a national legend which has been

Nebraska is pioneerng in unchart-
ed governmental procedure, but
there is nothing, thus far, to indi-
cate that any insurable hazards He
ahead. Imperfections that have al-
ready developed seem to be within
the power of the people to correct.
At least, the unicameral, nonparti-
san plan of state law making de-
serves a longer trial, and that, ap-
parently, is just what the citizens
of Nebraska intend to give it.

repudiate all this extravagance and
all its authors, of patronage, of pelf,
trade and traffic in state govern-
ment, they may expect a bill of
$200,000,000 from the 17 legislature.”
The former governor predicted
that the deficit at the end of the
next biennium will be $40,000,000,
after attacking the legislature for
appropriating more than $125,000,-1
“But worse than all the appropri-
ations is the destruction of the tax
commission by making it political
in that it will be subject to the
senator’s control and become a
nurse maid of patronage,” he wrote.
“Then they repealed the runoff pri-
mary and tied knots in the initia-
tive and referendum.”
Declaring the tax commission set-
up now gives “too much power in
the control of one man,” the former
governor pointed out that the com-
mission’s pay roll has jumped from
