Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor — -Alex. H. Washburn — — Say, SOMETHING, Anyway t GIVE this column today to M. C. Blackmail, publicity di- 1 rector for the State of Arkansas. Former newspaper man, and a good one, Mr. Blackman lays the following situation before the people—Mr. Blackmail speaking: Telling the worldabout anything these days i.s a highly competitive and very expensive business. The enormous sums spent yearly for advertising in newspapers, magazines and other mediums by business are proof that it pays dividends. Business just doesn't put out money unless it gets returns. A .state is no exception to other organizations with something to sell. If it doesn't speak out, loudly and often, accurately describing what it has to offer, the people with money to spend or invest will go elsewhere. © In this respect, Arkansas lags Star 'i WEATHER. Arkansas — Cloudy, probably occasional rains east and south Friday, Saturday; warmer southeast, colder northwest, Saturday, Shuster "Fired" From Corporation Body by Governor Huntsvillc Man Declares He Has Been Loyal to Bailey SHAKEUP IS HINTED Governor Planning "Reorganization," According to Letter LITTLE ROCK—(/P>—M. I. Sinister. Huntsville, member of tho Arkansas Corporation Commission since last January, announced Friday he had been "fired" by Governor Bailey. Making public a letter from the governor terminating his services effective December 1, Shuster said he knew no reason for his dismissal. He commented: "I have been as loyal as a tnnn could be Governor Bailey. 1 might add that my salary since appointment to the commission bus ju.sl about equaled the expense of moving to Little Rock, and contributions which I have made to the Bailey campaigns." He said he had received notice of his dismissal in a letter delivered by a messenger Friday morning, and that he subsequently had been unable to get in touch with the governor, who u>. ill in a hospital here. The letter notifying Shuster of his dismissal said Bailey was "working out ,a plan for the reorganization of the corporation commission and other departments," Latest TaWation ShowsMal $756 Rural Chairman Asked to Make Red Cross ' Reports City Chairman Bert Webb reported $30.50 more Friday which brings the Red Cross Roll fund to 5756.69.

With more to toll the world about limn Iho average state, it lacks the means and opportunity for telling it. Every stale bordering upon Arkansas, except one, has a state appropriation for promotion and advertising. Recently there appeared in Time magazine a full page advertisement headed, "We, the Governors." In it the governors of a dozen .southern stales invited expanding and decentralizing industries lo come lo their stales, and they recited the advantages they had to offer. There was a map of the South, with tho advertising states inked in black. Arkansas wa.s a white peninsula in a sea of black. Because Arkansas lacks Ihc industrial advantages of Ihe other stales? Absurd! Because Arkansas lucked Ihc money to pay for the ink to make it as black a:; the others in the map. In other words, Arkansas lacked the funds to participate in the cooperative advertisement. The editor of two national sportsmen's magazines with a million readers wrote me that he had .spent two weeks louring North Carolina as a guc.sl of the stale, while another member of Ihe .staff had spent a similar two weeks in Tennessee. They went back lo wrilc glowing accounts of tlio.se R tales as a sportsmen's paradise. Both slates have advertising appropriations and bolh adverli.se in the two magazines, among others. 1 sorrowfully replied that I couldn't advertise Arkansas in his magazines and I couldn't invilc him lo visit Arkansas as a guest of the state, because Arkansas has no appropriation for such purposes. So tho readers of those magazines who look to them for information and counsel as to where to qo for hunting find fishing and otlior /it.&UU/ii'wili go to North Carolina and Tennessee and spend their 510 to $25 per day. They would gladly come to Arkansas, if they knew what il has lo offer. VOLUME 39—NUMBER 38 HOPE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1937 PRICE 6e COPt RUSSIAN AIR Hope Closes Season Beating Dallas.

Reminding his listeners that Cliin.i has often been conquered, only lo swallow up her conquerors by absorption, Mr. McFaddin said this may be the long-range destiny of the Jtipane.se also should their troops permanently hold China. But there are three immediate possibilities, he said. First, the Japanese may establish u new >'.uue of influence south of the Great Wall, and found another pup- pel state like Manchoukuo. Second, the present Chinese retreat may actually be a bit of strategy on the part of the German generals who are advising Cliiung Kai-Shek, the Chinese leader. Mr. McFaddin recalled that in the World war the Germans skillfully retreated through East Cotk on NEW ORLEANS.— (/Pi —December cotton opened Friday at 8.09 and closed at 8.15.
