Most of us, as t-go bumping; along from one disappointment and disillu- ^Mohment to another, to another, acquire a sort of case-hard- e^ptiloaophy, and learn to discount the value of the prizes fe lail to get. But a child hasn't any philosophy of that ind to sustain him. ...... \ Instead, he has to grin and bear it; and sometimes th.6 *Cdoe3n't come easily. Even an adult gets the notion, now ilhen, that he faces a world which is in. conspiracy "to t-him. ^ow much more terribly does not such a idea down on a child's mind? '••-., children, in general/are rather lonely. We can do understand ^hem, to be pals to them».to comfort tjie^eJ^^jLw,aya,3omething pf ,a barrier betv^ee^n. ifsj because they look out at the world with unspoiled "eyes arid wfi (do not, -and they know it.

' ; ^ * So, when things go wrong, he has to fall back on his'-'owri resource's—which means that every so often he has a pretty fnirftfrne of it. , "~"' Of course, it very seldom ends as tragically as this case in Jndiana did. But if we are wise we shall let this pitiful ' story |eaeh us something; teach us that youngster's un% .happiness can be indifinitely more real and deep than we -dream, and our greatest wisdom and our deepest sympathy * andjinderstanding are imperatively demanded, over and over " tfgain, if there has been given to us the tremendous and price- lesSTfesponsibility of bringing up a boy. v "' ffU .„ Toftiting the Unemployed f ^ . \ NEWSPAPER rotogravure section the other day printed /» a dainty little picture of four people in evening dress seated at a well-appointed table pouring something (harmless, no doubt) out of bottles into glasses; and it was explained that the picture was taken at a society frolic in New York for the benefit of the unemployed, and that the society folks in the picture were "toasting the unemployed." ** -A society frolic—whatever that may be—for the benefit of thje jobless doubtless comes under the heading of meritorious endeavors; yet there is something infinitely exasperating about this picture and its caption, just as there is about most pictures of that kind. •• f A jobless man might well wonder if he and his brothers wouldn't benefit 'more had the money been given direct. And the sight of four well-dressed and smiling people toasting him in his misery—well, it is hardly the sort of thing to make him contented with his lot. ^fSfSu^j^^^^^^^^^ff^^T^ar^^^' ii ii r iiri ililft- r •-••----r"i i-""" M^.-U^.-J-, Mr. Stanford Resigns 1 had Umcheoli in town Tuesday with R. B. Stanford and W. W. Mitchell. Our readers will identify Mr. Stanford as the district engineer iyhd is leaving the highway office January 1st. He will be succeeded by Mr. Mitchell. Mr. Stanford has earned a high place in the respect and &ditiir.ation of the people of Southwest Arkansas while bdlld* lii^'tiiie slate* highways of this section during the last four years.--! suppose that 90 per cent of my men readers share my profound -regard for the civil engineer's profession ^Nearly eV0*y boy at some time or other has made plans tb be art'eng'ini^ri'feinid'go off to the far places of the earth building Bridges aiid railsoads and highways. Mr. Stanford has done most of-the things that a man admires. And his life in- our community the last four years has proved him- to be not only fine engineer blit a 1 fine public citizen. ' I armgiad to report tnat Mr. Mitchell, whom I met f 01 the first time Tuesday, is very .similar to the engineer who is leaving us. Mr. Mitchell has been assistant state engineei in charge of construction all over Arkansas. In. a series of demotions, somfe of the district engineers have been let out and their superiors have been forced to take over the dutids of the local offices as well as the state-wide program. Thus it happens that Mr. Mitchell comes to Hope. The official explanation given for Mr. Stanford's resignation, and ; for the resignation of the district engineer at Pine Bluff also, is that the State Highwoy Department is in financial troiible and must make a big reduction in its operating expense. •,' >! ' ' i ..In 'view of the strenuous attempt of Hope business men, including myself, to hold Mr. Stanford at the local office, I thinfc.jt .only; fair to. the highway administration to say that there arp good grounds for believing that economy may have forced it to bring about the present change. j . Hdweyer, there is an undercurrent of scandal and re- itfatSoH thai? smells of politics, and which cannot be overlooked'. I 'should say in justice to the highway department thpt the, acld^ test as to whether Mr. Stanford has been dismissed because of politics or because of a necessary reduction in expenses;*, will come a few months later when Mr. Mitchell eithe^-will .cojntinue to handle the local, .office, or a permanent d^stpict'erfgineer will be quietly appointed. } • I am aware that some dozen or more affidavits are Reported to have been filed in the Stanford case with the highway department. . Many of them concern Mr. Stanford. At least one involves this newspaper. Every Hope man who goes to Little Rock is apparently told that the highway department, has an affidavit signed by some Hope parties saying th(at The Star's story and editorial regarding young Mar\|iii Wortham last month were concocted by three men in a closecf room in Hope. As the rumor goes, Mr. Stanford dictated the story, Will Atkins wrote the editorial, and I published them, According to the rumor, this "expose" is to be sprung an the Texarfanna Gazette. I| : •'•' • : ; For Cotton? .. . . . The affidavit is a lie. It never will be published, either in the Teyyrkana Gazette or elsewhere — not because jit shouldn't~b.e published, but because character assassins |d- ways conduct a whispering campaign rather than go neanja newspape-r office. •••»][ •' The' affidavit is a lie— and if I am able to get it on record-' there 'arj*'"a 'coujple jaf affidavit-makers who will go" to?" .fail for c'rimniariib'el *' ". ....... . ,' '! . -,I 'd'wl Wee.4 : to tell .the people of Southwest Arkansas that thie»re ajsmaU army, of spies and political touts iswarm- ing"aro'i^tt0--eountry nowadays mixing and "mingling, with the, hoire|t.; yriemployed... you can see them .for yourself.

They are held' in contempt by honest citizens. They are idlers and generally debauched. They are professional dis- tortionists of 'the truth, and have good reason for lying about me and my newspaper — for I aim to destroy them. You hear ithiepe.- political stories, but you do not see them in the newspapers* The next time you catch a fellow with one, why not invite him to come down to the office of Hope Star and put his affidavit^ in print? He won't do it. •Any statement that a man won't back in the public prints is.as contemptible as an anonymous letter. You know that as well as I do. — W. European Air Supremacy manager of a large middlewestern airport the other '• day declared that, contrary to popular opinion, commercial aviation in the United States is "at least 15 years ahead $ commercial aviation in Europe." *! ,' 3"his, he said, applies both to equipment and service. .Night Hying on passenger lines, he said, is still confined to jSprth America ; and he added that most of the patrons of the ^European lines are American tourists ! _.... All of this is rather surprising, in view of all that we ha-ye .heard about Europe's "Supremacy" in the air. Over- i^eas, apparently, military aviation is still the branch that i^ets most of %e attention. Aviation in the United States has. definitely established itself commercially, and has al- ;"jeady made an amazing good record for service. "Sucker Money" , il CGQftPING to a recent statement from W..N'Neil, presi- f\ dent of the General Tire and Rubber Company, one of the prime causes of the present depression has been an abun- ;, in prosperous times of "sucker money."
