Parke, of Parke-Harper Printing company, Little Rock, ' Mr. Parke got mad and called me up on long-distance rfnjply because I hadn't made mention of thi» new secret society called -1'Why" that is running around Arkansas asking mysterious questions about the state government. I told Mr. Parke that an ^nonympus communication had no standJW in a newspaper office regardless what information it attempted to convoy. And I was particularly exasperated when Mr, Parke told roe that he sponsored the thing himself. "Why" comas-out to hick editors in the shape of a long list of questions about state govenunent, seeking to stir up a foment of curiosity in hick communities regarding this new and strange society. Well, I'm no hick editor, this is no hick community, and none pf The Star's readers are hicks. My old home town is larger than Memphis; and pn the other hand, there are plenty of Arkansas boys who are on top of the heap in New York. Where does a Little Rock hick get off at, condescending' to address anonymous, .communications to the hinterland not' so fortunate as to be a suburb of hli precious city? : I hate these people who confuse trolley-cars with civilization and keyhole anonymity with the high office of running a newspaper. I'll back Hope aganst Little Rock^ any old day. And I'll back my judgment against the judgment of a man who chooses to stir up the people with the blind, barbed shafts of an anonymous and irresponsible publication* Whatever my newspaper is, or hopes to be, depends on the confidence the people have in its editor. Mr. Parke asked Arkansas "Why?" But I asked Mr. fcirke "Who?" ;And right then Mr. Parke had to down with "Me." HANK YOU!
