Our Band $t< j ]>s Out, Congratulations to Charles (;. Move- head and the Blylheville High School Band upon winning first division honors at the northeast Arkansas Music Festival in Forrest City Friday. By crowding out of the lirsl division older and more experienced bands not only shows excellent leadership but also emphasizes the individual talents of our Blylheville children. As a group they roiled the talent and musical enthusiasm of their director, Mr. Move- head. The difficult music they are playing and the finish every child manifests reflects the heart and feeling- of the true musician and under the gifted direction of Mr. Slorehead, they give promise of future musical attainment that will be a spiritual outlet anil character builder. War Horrors on Maim Slriwt Most of us sliiKkler at the more fliottglil of living among the terrors ol' modern mechanized war. Far from combat zones, we gel: the jitters when we read of Europeans strugKlinK daily with the threat of bombs, artillery lire, floating mines, hostile snibnuiriues.

A drinking driver puts himself and his'passengers under the same liaxard as if he were aboard a contrabaiid- carrying ship passing through submarine /.ones.

The housewife who cleans with naphtha, benzine or gasoline is under twice the hazard that fates Hie student air pilot.

The motive or Ik-ritn's diplomatic stroke, in releasing m doe.umcnl.s purrinrlini- lu be confidential reports from American sources, is plain enough. The Natffs learn from history. They remember hoiv imperial Germany, nftcr' having Ibe Allies liunging on the ropes in the hist World War, wiis vanquished at last when Ihc United Stalc.s entered liie connicl. To keep America oul of Ibis war is a loi-lcnl purl of Nazi self- defense. Having noted whnl a furor was iirouseil ngntnnl James II. n,. Croimvt-l's reccnl speech in Canada, it did not lake long for Berlin propagandists to perceive that a backlire against piirtictpallon might be created il evidence could l)c produced lo show warlike Intentions on the part of American spokesmen. Are (lie documents genuine or spurious? It genuine, then Cromwell's Inlk was child's prattle compared with the gross indiscretions ol which William U. IJulliit, Ambassador lo France, was guilly. However. Ihc Na/ls have a long record or fnlslfying documents when it suits their purpose. These papers are so violently pro-win', .su unreserved in promises of American participation, as lo appear false on (heir face. Immediate denials have come from Secretary Mull, Mr. IJullItt nud Count Potocki, but these statements do not scltlc (he matter. Americans will wtint lo fcnow definitely whether their trusted envoys could have been cuimWe of sucti dcclnrnlions. or of any utterance dial the Polish Ambassador might bnvi- so interpreted. American sympathies have been warmly on the side of the democracies since Hitler began his aggressions and his moves to dominate Europe. Yel nothlny in the public mandate has authorized any such wild promises, any such efforts lo set Europe in order:;, as these puiwrs Indicate. H is inconceivable thai Ambassadors Bullllt and Kennedy or the President could have been guilty of such flagrant, misconceptions ol their duty. The truth or falsity of Ihc documents is a matter in which Americans will be keenly concerned. —St. Louis I'osl-Dispatch. • SO THEY SAY If Ciorinauy .succeeds iu crushing l-jngland and France, as is not impossible if the war develops in certain directions, no durable peace for Ihc United Slates would be possible.—or.
