If they are fng him. to a saner and more comfortable life, they also uade him, now and then, that he is a smarter fellow than ajreally the case. |£" We do not, after all, know quite as much as we like to suppose. 'At the end of the sky there is still mystery — profound, abysmal, rather terrifying. It was there 40 centuries ' and we have not lifted it. What of the Future? v i YOUNG man who is soon to graduate from a leading Southern college wants to know if we believe the young jnan of the prtsent generation has the same chances of suc- as the man who happened to be born 50 or 75 years ago. We quote-this paragraph from his letter: "I have been impressed with the spirit of optimism presented by your newspaper from day to day. It is my understanding that you have been fairly successful as a newspaper publisher—and that you have achieved this success alone ad unaided. For this reason, I would like to know if you believe the younger man who must start from the bottom at this time has a fighting chance to succeed." We certainly do. The future, like the past, will in our *"-Jiumble opinion, be a "survival of the fittest," j. The world is moving much faster than it did twenty or 4 thirty years ago, and standards are somewhat higher. Men s^of limited educational attainments will be placed at a much f -greater disadvantage in future. But men who know how do some one thing—and to do that one thing well—should able to climb much faster, and to achieve a great deal than those who started the climb a quarter or a half y ago. But this young friend, and others, should remember that usually get no more out of life than we put into it—and ff^fhat the ultimate measure of our success is going to be based on the good we do in the world and not on our ability to ac- pumuJate money and property and the things most folks re- g&rd as wealth. Jt js our candid judgment that this is the day of unexampled opportunity, and the young man who starts now to €$FY£ fpj" himself a Career; who possesses character and in* teFrity, energy and courage; who is content to start modestly and to build soundly—who has established a goal, and who is willing to work to this definite end^may rest assured that $ world will appraise him at his full worth—and more.— dgw Jiwnria iv> the West Point (Miss.) Times-Leader. Cancer and Racketeers phicagp specialist who characterized cancer cells as "«"»<>l(;etr">'*}" in the human body gave about as apt a de- scrintJon tf the malady for the layman as could well he invented, Al 'o, when you stop to think about it, he gave an cxe^dinglv srcod description of the racketeer. For if the cancer cells can be described as racketeers the racketeers of real life can very well be clescvibed as can- e<»i;j. They grow and spread in the municipal body at an alarming rate, they make the municioal body very sick, and '—in a good many American cities—they have made a major operation as imperative necessary. i Chamber of Commerce. He. made the kind of shakes any community right down to its toes. But ifi his study of American business during the panic he inferred that the time might come when we should be protected frbm deflation and disaster, I am wondering how many of us believe that. I don't. I know that the United States! (Chamber of Commerce is spending a lot of time and money trying to determine how panics may be avoided. But ira about as successful as asking the farmer to do something about the weather, The wise farmer knows that there are fat and lean years, City men know the same. it seems to me that our national business system functions about as successfully as any of our other institutions. Christ gave us a perfect religion. We profess to be .•Christians, and are—but for some painful chapters, And so 'on down through the list of human activities, we live on a sort of trial by error. We know what is right, yet we ; will try what is wrong before consenting finally to return to it. x All this may sound rather pessimistic. But not really. We are only weighing in the balance the chances of Mr. Leopold's national Chamber of Commerce ever finding a way of stopping panics and hard times. The fact is, we no sooner plug one hole than we find another. Now this country had been operating since 1914 under 'the delusion that the establishment of the Federal Reserve 'System put an end to panics. It didn't. The. Federal Reserve System was a long step, forward. It stopped speculation by the banks. But the next speculation broke out among the people—and there's where grief hit us in 1929-31. You have heard a lot about bank failures in Arkansas, but believe it or not, what hurt the United States the last two years wasn't the failure of banks but the failure of individuals. The banks of the United States on the whole were in good shape. The people weren't. What bank failures there w«re, got in the newspapers of course. Bwt the failure of individuals is not "news"—and the individual failures numbered millions, I do not mean that they went "broke'." I mean that city people by the millions took up a new kind of life. No more lean years. No more panics. They were like the farmer who forgot to figure the weather. And so one day when he wasn't looking the weather came and took him. What made this depression so severe was that, having given their .confidence to a false position, people were totally frightened when the structure gave way again. The Federal Reserve System helped the banks, The United States Chamber of Commerce may discover a new remedy for something else—but it will be for a specific cause. Business organization is as brittle as our machine civilization. Like a great chemical laboratory, it can deal only in specific quantities. It may< repair individual parts, but it never can do anything for the unknown quantity Man—for it is Man that runs the whole machine. Prosperity is an individual matter. When many are making money, the nation is rich and full of confidence. The condition.is general, and easy to understand. But when everything hag fallen apart, and the population looks terrified and woe-begone. their troubles are individual troubles —and nobody understands an individual trouble. An act- jary can turn a general condition into a beautiful -curve, jut an' individual trouble will run him crazy. One day this fall the business men of Hope suddenly found that what was happening to each of them had happen;d to all—they had turned a corner in their business affairs. iVhen it was a "personal trouble it remained a national panic. But when it had cured itself it became a national recovery. After all, there is something reassuring about all this. We are a free people. We have the right to bargain and racle as we want to. The right to be free carries the responsibility of living safe. And that's about all that a panic means.—W. fr6m page* In these days of "abysmal ignorance" about the only one Who can air his views with impunity is the aviator. Insanity is increasing in Canada (with liquor) and decreasing in New York (with prohibition). "Evidently the basis for that discovery is the nuts. » People in Somerset, England, use a rose to pay tenure. If the people In America use anything to pay tenure lucky. • But an English woman is heading a movement for "perfection of man." Sounds like a Swiss movement. Or at any rate, she probably never heard of "Ma" Kenedy's "What-a- Man" Hudson. It's all right to take time off from business to keep in the pink if .yon don't get into the red. Dolly Asks-Republican Party to Back Hoover COLUMBUS, Ohio— (IP)— Mrs. Dolly Curtis Gann, sister of Vice President Charles C. Curtis, Friday called upon Ohio republicans to return President Hoover to the White House in 1932. Mrs. Gann, speaking at a luncheon given in her honor by the Women's Republican Club of Ohio, lauded the work of President Hoover, claiming he was the only man as yet had offered suggestions which would, if carried out, "help business, alleviate depression, lighten taxes and tend to restore peace and political stability in every country of the world." "To have this strong and steadying influence withdrawn from international councils would be an immeasurable calamity not only to our country but to the wholo world," she concluded.

Parks, also of Hope, were introduced to the United States Supreme Court 1 today by Senator Caraway, and were admitted to practice law before that body. Mrs. Henry Hltt has returned from a visit to relatives at Prescott. dent Curtis wants it clearly understood he and no one else is to make the decisiqn expected in about two weeks on whether he will seek re- nomination. Usually the first to leave President foover's cabinet meetings, the vice president Friday remained after many of the others had gone. Speculation was aroused.' ' As he emerged, Mr, Curtis was asked If he had talked over his decision with the president. He shook his head emphatically. "Nobody is making this decision but me—Charlie Curtis," he said, "and when I make a statement I will make it." FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH W. R. Anderson, D.D., Minister 9:45 a. m.
