The Sun Learned this week is that it be suspended for a limited time to permit passage of Bond issues for postwar construction. One suggestion is that it be suspended for two years. At the end of that time new legislation would be necessary to make a simple 51 per cent majority or a 55 per cent majority permanent. If there were dissatisfaction with the lower percentage it is argued the former 65 per cent requirement automatically would become effective again under such a plan.

Three need for restoration of Home Rule so the cities can move Forward unshackled. The state legislature should to called into special session this summer by gov. Brieker to remove those three obstacles. There can be no excuse for failure of our elected representatives to do this Job. Political campaigning must not interfere with this duty. Our soldiers Are campaigning but not politicking. Failure to do this Job will be deliberate unforgivable wartime shirking.
