Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor — Alex. H. Washburn Hope aMfmmm Star * f t.ffl V &$ Spring Hill W HAT a native Spring Hill man who now lives in Hope said to me at the dedication of the rural electric project Wednesday night tells the whole story. He said : "My father moved our family from Spring Hill to Hope so we youngsters might have advantages like good schools nnd electric lights, that was 40 years ago. Spring Hill today has a good school—and tonight it has electric lights." That is the story of the turn of the title of civilization, For 40 years—and much longer—Americans have been leaving the' farm and going to the city. Don't call it "glamor"—that's only for the very young and foolish. The great tide that swept population off the farms and into the towns the last 40 years was not a tide of youth—but it was a tide of middle-aged folks seeking the common conveniences of civilization. And that tide has now turned. <jij Good schools, good roads nnd electric power make the country all Ihn! the t-iiy ever w«s—plus Die natural churm thai has iilwiiys made men lovo the outdoors. All over America, except in the deepest agricultural .sections, there has been a steady reversal of population trend for the last decade —city-dwellers are moving lo suburbs and actual farms. You read proof of this just the other day in a political story. Tammany Hnll took a beating i" the Merchants-Farm Fair to Be Held Here Oct. 21 to 23 Fair Bulletin, Listing Prizes, Attractions, to Be Printed Oct. 8 BOOK EIGHT RIDES C h a m b e r of Commerce Sponsoring Community Fair for Territory A Merchants and Farmers Fair will be held nt the Southwest Arkansas Fair Grounds in Mope, under sporusor- ship of Hope Chamber of Gjinmerce.

New York City mayoralty election. Tnmmnny was powerful in I he ^luys when the Borough of Manhattan—the actual Island of New York—had a growing population. But for the last decade Manhattan's population has been standing still or declining—while the outlying Boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx have taken on new population tired of congested city-life. Whenever you journey through the Ka-st the inarch of the years is brought back to you ns you sec that the circle of city-workers who choose to live in the country has grown constantly larger around each metropolis. The cities, bringing their own conveniences to the country around them, may have weakened themselves—but they have helped a nation. For America, by nature half industrial and half agricultural, needs to keep her people close to both sides of this dual civili7.ii- lion--if the nation is to recognize and solve her common problems.
