Welcome Commander Kelley Blythevillc will be host lute today to Raymond J. Kelly, national commander of the American Legion. This city welcomes. the opportunity lo have the distinguished Detroit, attorney as its guest and extends to Dud Cason post, Alert and active arm of the Legion in this city, its compliments for securing a place for Klylhcvillc wi the very crowded itinerary of Ibe national commander. Commander Kelly i.s welcome not only because of the high position lie holds and the great organization he represents but because he typifies the industrious and trustworthy citi/cn- ship which is the bedrock of Americanism. The Legion commander is the type of man who is willing to start at the bottom and work his way up as evidenced by his enlistment as a private in the U. S. army when tin's country entered the World War. His choice as leader of the nation's World War veterans h as a I r e a (I y proved a happy one. More success for Raymond ,J. Kelly, the man, and for the organization he represents. Again, we say welcome to Blytlie- ville! All Americans Want To Vole A proposal to briiud as. paupers nil persons who remain on relief for llircc consecutive years hit the New Jersey legislature in Trenton a few (lays ago and- loosed a ttlornv of indignant protest, if the plan were 'carried out, it would .automatically remove the right to vote from persons who fell under its provisions. The recommendation was submitted to the legislature by State Senator Homer C. Zink, chairman of the Knicr- gency Relief Committee, but was the work of a hired investigator, Col. CI. Barrett Glover. H was not a committee report and was not submitted as such, but that didn't lumper (he amazement of people who feared an infringement on their, civil rights. It is a pretty serious thing to be called officially'a pauper. It knocks the wind out of you. 11 leaves you humiliated and desolate. People don't lake the pauper's oath unless there isn't much else they can do. It is equally serious to be stripped, at the same time, of your right lo vote. A man forced to live on relief for a long period of time is not necessarily a poor citi/cn. lie j s moi .<, likciv , 0 OUT OUJR WAY value his franchise thai) does Die who bus n job and security, lie lias more time (o think nbout it. One can't blame Colonel Glover for wauling to do something. Maybe lie was Lhhikhur of Hie New Uoelielle, N. Y,, family, on relief for four years, who maintained n .summer collnge along willi a town residence. Or lie might Jiavc been Ihjnkijjg of the eight Jersey City officials, awaiting sentence for relief fraud. There him; been abuses in relict' everywhere. There lias been Home pampering "long with some pi-iviiUon. KnmiKli crises of mismanagement have been turned up to make taxpayers very sick to (heir stomachs. Hut the way to end this sort_of thing is not lo strip people of their franchise. Somehow, there must be a more equitable way of straightening things out. (ARK.) COUIUI3K NKWS War ln.lerru.pts Prosperity Tilings were coming along nicely in Finland before Joe Stalin came and smashed everything. The Finns wore enjoying a period of prosperity greater than they had seen for a long time. According to the Finnish Trade Jtcvicw, aggregate value of exports from January to August, 193.0, was 5,759,000,000 marks as compared to 5,177,000,000 for the .same period in 1938. The 1039 ligurc was the highest in history for comparable periods. Obviously, the last thing the Finns wanted was war. They were doing loo well. Perhaps that's what Stalin thought. Maybe he, too, saw the Trade Review figures. Maybe lie was jealous. But It WAS Loaded A Hellish steamer, plying the Chinese coast oil' Chefoo, was damaged when a Japanese warship iiral a shell at it. It was all a mistake,, said the Japanese. They just wanted lo fire n blank wiirnint' shot across the bow, and they didn't know their camion was loaded. No one was hurt, and the said they would be glad to pay indemnities. What are you going to do with people like that? They might blow olV a doxcn heads and say, simply, "Beg your pardon—all a mistake. No harm done. We'll try not to let it happen again." And just to prove that they mean it, a handful of army ofliccr.s will commit hari kari. How can one say, "Don't kid us—we know you meant it all the time," and still preserve all the niceties of international diplomacy? ' SO THEY SAY More mid more, the American ixoplc are awakening to the fuel lhat this spciuttlmil policy has, instead of bringing .recovery, made it Impossible.—Senator Styles Bridges (Ucp, N. H.). * * * Unless we change our foreign trade policy at once, we arc headed for u major depression which tuny be the last roundup for American democracy.—Representative It. Carl Andersen i Hep., Minn.). * + * In the future, capital will come to Mexico, but it must come in n different spirit, realizing no country In America is an economic or political colony of another.—niunon Bctchi Quln- lana, Mexican mider-sccreiary of foreign allairs.

"Twcnty-tivo a month and it'i nice for that." Ann's share would mean ai extra dollar. She could cut ou the movies— "I can manage it,' she said. "I'll go home-and pack my things. I won't stay where am another night. Where, do yoi live?" "But suppose you don't like it? 1 Clara asked dubiously. "You're sorts swell, Ana—" "I'll like it, all right." Clara readied across llic table and squeezed Ann's hand "Gee I'm glad. We'll have fun. Maybe you can learn me lo dress heltei and do my hair Jike yours." Ann's heart went out lo the 10- cent store girl. What i£ she did murder the king's English? What if her ideas of make-up were atrocious? She was young and gay, the touch of her hand was loving. Ann's eyes shone. "We'll have fun," she said huskily. "I haven't had any fun—ever." Clara finished her livcrwursl on rye. She gave Ann an address on West Murray. It was but five blocks Irom the Center. The girls parted on a high wave of anticipation. * * * QKE suitcase and a paper bag with stout handles held all Ann's belongings. In the suitcase she packed a small assortment ot clothes, an electric iron, six yellow plates from the dime store, and three pictures. The shopping sack contained shoos, coal hangers —one jiever found enough in furnished room violet plant. -It was unfortunate, that Ann loaded with the suitcase and hag, her heavy coat and an vimbrclla, should crash into Paul Haydcn as she hurried away, from the rooming house.

The history of mankind seems to indicate thai- such epidemics recur at intervals of about 25 years. Unfortunately, Ihc causative or- Simism for that particular type of influenza has not been definitely established. The gvnerji) impression is that the condition is caused by a virus, which is another name for a living poi.'ion. The border Hut separates the ordinary cold from influenza is not clearly defined. Colds occur in epidemics. Hie same as does iutUicnza. There is no simple test of the .sorrelions from Ihc nose or IhroM that proves definitely, lolhc doctor, that- the condition Is eillier ii rummcm cold or influen/a.
