There is a slrikc in Ihe textile industry—but thai isn't a fair example. The lexlile industry is but slightly organized. Tlic fully organized industries arc for the most part peacefully at work. The textile general strike will probable fail. Wilkcs-Barre, Pa., second largest silk center in America, has mcst of its mills running. Wilh an even smaller percentage of organized labor in Ihc cotton textile mills it is unlikely that the general strike will be prolonged to the point of of seriously damaging staple prices for the Southern cotton farmers this fall. There is a social tragedy in the textile industry, whose men and women workers are herded into cotton mill colonies and worked nt low wages- hut, it. is n tragedy that can be remedied only by years of patient organization. No general striltc ever raised an unorganized mass of workers lo prosperity ovcrniglil.

Widespread Theft of Ballots Shown Kk'ction Contests Believed Responsible for Illegal Action LITTLE ROCK —Whether pending '.-lections conic-sis have anything lo do with it. the fact remains that the 'heft or destruction of ballots in the last primary or run-off election in Arkansas is becoming -jpneral. In most instances the ballol.s had hern intrusted to the county clerk, and he; had placed them in a vault, presumably safe from persons who may have designs upon them.
