In calling Dr. Mnckny to the witness

It should allow the legislature to 11 ix

other things which would be for the

Sioux Falls Argus-Leader : Wo sns-

ncreastng part In South Dakota mat

vholmlng defeat of every submission
except one , has taught the people
low easy It is to veto the acts of thu
egislature , and It is likely that any
neasure which excites the least or-
aiilzed opposition will first have to
run the referendum gauntlet before
t can become a law. We agree with
he Mitchell Republican that the con
stitution should bo changed , raising
he percentage required to invoke the
referendum , but wo fear that in an
other "vote no" campaign it would go
lown with the rest. It Is a big job to
educate 125,000 voters so that they

of laws what they favor and vote for
