Abolishing the City vnERTRAND RUSSELL, British scientist and philosopher, t <i«P proposed^ in a recent debate in New York that the state instead of the family ought to bring up children; and while > there doesn't seem much chance that his plan will be adopted r-jvery soon, one of the arguments he used is worth thinking about :/, He admitted that parents are usually better at the job . raising children than any state institution can be. But insisted that this is true only if the parents live in good conditions, and he pointed out that most people nowadays live ;,itt cities, and that the small apartments-typical of city life— ;•' is very far from being a good place for children. All of this is true enough. No one who has spent all or •part of his childhood in a'city apartment will deny it. But Cohere may be another way out of the difficulty. Since the city apartment is a tough place for youngsters, and an ever-increasing percentage of families lives in apart- '"ments—why not, instea dof trying to abolish the family, "-abolish the city? It is very possible that this is an issue which will engage ft a -major share of the public's attention during the next half .The shift from a rural to an urban civilization in the United States is a very recent thing, and it isn't entirely fin- jsished yet; but it has gone far enpugh to make it perfectly " clear that tfie city, in a place to live and rear a is, not much of a It is crowded, noisy and dirty. iWhfn streets;and vacant lota are used for playgrounds—as they-have to be, in thous- |f*' ands of circumstances— r the results are distressing.

It may be necessary for us to group industries and offices together; but why can't liv- ' ing quarters be put a score of miles away, out in the open, • t away from the dust and\congeston and noise? Already .there is & tendency in that direction. So far it is "limited ^chiefly to the fairly well-to-do.

YOU WASHINGTON LETTER 7 BY BODNEY DUTCHER KG'A-flrwlre \Vrlitr W ASHINGTON—There has been plenty of, amusement here lately for those whose taste for comedy is best satisfied when a distinguished dignitary sits on his plug hat or shows a ousted garter dragging on the floor. ( So many 'people have gotten themselves all mixed up on public occasions; in so short a space ot time that one is almost driven tofthe conclusion that such a program was carefully planned. Perhaps the situation caused by Senator Borah's Interview with the French , correspondents was riot, soi funny : beoause it threatVncd: to BpofethevHoover-Laval conferences..-But .11 j seems to merit a Nobel prize for absurdity. First Borah was: overlooked in the invitations to the White House dinner for Laval and .only received a'last-minute bid- after newspapermen had seen the list and asked What the heck. When Borah spilled the beans by demanding .'revision of France's dearly beloved Versailles treaty. frantic French correspondents dashed to the White House to tip off Laval and Laval broke off conferring with Hoover to issue a rebuke to the chairman of our Senate Foreign Relations Committee. French correspondents cabled Paris that Americans were anti- French and suggesting that Hoover had put Borah up to the interview. The incident left everyone sore—Laval, Hoover, the correspondents and Borah himself. * * * M EANWHILE, General John J. Pershing hlmseif had entered competition with Hector Fuller, passenger traffic is keen, ond the public seems to i the New York municipal jadtojm- be demanding larger and faster steamers ; such steamers, we nouncer. r§ assured, will presently be seen under the American flag. R Cah ' eavaevd - ' Ramsay '" ~A11 'of this is more or less comforting to national pride. Yet it is permissible to wonder just why it needs to be done. "A"jt"Ajnerican merchant marine is needed, undeniably; but Jhg freight steamer is the backbone of any merchant marine fY»tem, and the "super liner" is just part of the window- dressing. Those who }ike to see the Amercan flag flying on all of the seven seas should remember that their hopes will stand or fall, pot on the construction of gigantic floating palaces, but on the success or failure of the lowly, unpublicized cargo carriers. International Problems F\ISPATGHES from' Washington following the Hoover- U kaval conversations indicate that certain senators are rather worried over the way in which reparations and war debts have been linked together as allied problems. The traditional American attitude has been that these p/oblems are entirely separate and that there is no earthly reason why a discussion of lower reparations payments should be accompanied by a discussion of debt revision; and these senators are prepared to insist that this attitude be maintained. Technically, probably, this stand is quite correct. But the developments of the last year have proved rather conclusively that all great international problems stand together. Eevise one part of the international problems stand together. Revise one part of the international structure and you have to revise all. To insist that each issue occupies a separate, water-tight compartment is to serve the best interests of neither the United States nor the world at large. Gang-Police Connivery F OB a revealing sidelight on metropolitan political conditions, you are commended to a statement recently issued by Norman Thomas, defeated Socialist candidate for the presidency of the borough of Manhattan, in New York. Discussng instances of violence and intimidation at the New York polls, he said: "The police in most of the districts are either in con- ^ivance with the gangsters or are afraid of them. I never r -w a more deliberate effort of pngsters to control voting. 1 h Action showed a. complete aJMieation of * ne police." " hy do underworld gangs flourish in big c'tif.-i? Well f t re-t or—they arc e^trenjely useful to th" political . LD, Cj on elation day.. . . Fuller, who first introducing as "prime minister of the United States," had turned on the French and Introduced Laval "Premier Paul day Pershing was taking Marshal Petaln of France through Red Grose headquarters. The whole Red Cross staff was called in and on the air as Claudel." Next Pershing ended a brief speech by introducing "my dear friend and comrade-at-arms—Marshal Foch"! He managed to get himself corrected. Vice President Curtis got into this local comedy of rerrors when Laval came to > pay ' a formal call at the Capitol. Laval was taken to the historic vfna president's room just off the Senate chamber. Curtis was at his huge place in the .Senate .office building, of which he Is.-very-proud and whose' gaudy trappings have become .famous. So Laval had' to be taken down and out and over through the torn-up Capitol grounds to see Curtis in, his ^aj'r;.'

Finally Mile, Laval couldn't make the train and a great heap of preparation went for nothing. Mile. Reine Claudel, her friend and hostess, went on to the game by error and is supposed to have been talked to by her papa, the French ambassador, when she got home. President Hoover's stood the strain ot the dignity French premier's visit, but ho had just been through a series of embarrassing moments himself. . At Yorktown the wind blew his speech away and one sheet was lost BO that he had to omit that part. At Annapolis his party sped by the mayor and an official wel- conjing committee waiting to* greet them at the city line—for a reason ratlier difficult to convey in print.

TUe p^AGE G£CURet.1 6V Trie SliFF VoRSAt- AMP Ttf£ lUJty Plan Flight to Buenos Aires Outlook Is Bright For Sevfer farmers 'Live-at-Home' Campaign Has Helped Area to Stage Comeback DEQUEEN, Ark.— Sound' thinking and a readjustment of farm practices is rapidly replacing a despairing attitude among Sevier county farmers which was brought on last year by drouth, bank failures and low prices, according to n report submitted to County Judge Custer Steel and' members of the quorum court by Charles U. Robinson, county agent. No one agency has been more responsible for the change than the agricultural extension service which has been and will continue to be of unlimited benefit during this period, the report said. The beginning of the county's agricultural reformation was seen as early as the first week of January when agricultural "outlook" meeting was held at Deueeh. Att the close of the meeting, 400 farmers returned to their homes and communities with a more definite idea of the prices promised' by various crops and livestock during the coming year of 1931. As word of this meeting spread, demands were made for similar meetings in other communities of the county. The "Live-at-Home" idea was stressed at all meetings and' the program was adopted and successfully carried out by farmers throughout the county. As a result the majority of farms this year arc provided with bountiful supplies of food and feed. Regardless of conditions, the average farmer of Se- vicr county will be able to feed himself, his family and his livestock this winter. In addition, he has saved plenty of seed for the 1932 planting. It became apparent last fall »nd winter that if a crop were to be made in 1931, financial aid would' have to be provided in some form to the farmer. Congress passed the seed loan legislation, and the agricultural extension service was called upon to set u pthrough the county agent each county, an organization for the purpose of assisting the farmer in obtaining the much needed loans. The refromation also witnessed the organization of 14 4-H clubs with a total membership of 451 boys and girls. The annual 4-H Club county camp, held in DeQueen early in July, was attended' by GO boys, girls and local leaders. Thirty-six 4-jH Club boys and girls attended the state club camp at Fayetteville during Farmers' Week. Boys' livestock and dairy judging teams from Sevier county were entered in state-wide competition and' each team made a commendable showing. A counyt-wide 4-H Club Achievement Day was held November 7 and at that time, approximately 50 prizes were awarded to the boys and girls who were winners in the various phases of 4-H Club work. Another phase of the work is the soil improvement demonstration, given by the county agent. Twelve such permanent pasture demonstrations j have been carried on in the county j this year. In addition, 39 field' crop I demonstrations have been given. Other important phases of the year's program included demonstrations in horticulture, livestock, rural engineering, and plant disease control and the Sevier county fair.
