Curnthersvdle's New Librnr-y Curulliersville's liiuul.soniu new i>ub- lic librai-y is a most imposing Irilmlc lo Ihc lu'i'h ly|)c of cjlizcn.slnp in Ilial city. Indeed few cities the si/.e of CimiUi- crsville can bosisl as line and commodious n structure for such a purpose. Cai'tithcrsvillc liiis had a public library since 1922 and the new ?^0,OOU building is the rciilr/.iition of what at one time wits certain to have been only a fanciful dream. It was bnill \vith a local bond issue and a U'I'A ffraiil. The new library is said to house some 8,000 volumes wilb plenty .of room for future expansion ami reading facilities. Caruthersville can well be prouil of this new addition to ils cultural and educational life. Proclaim Tlwir The states of Hie Union have learned not lo hide their lights under any bushels. If they've got anything to offer dllier industry or (he tourist. trade, they want the rust, of the conn- try .to know it. And the best medium they know of totting the word around is advertising. Ik-fore 1035, only six slates made any provisions in ihcir fiscal budgets for advertising. This year, -10 states liayc earmarked funds to be used for publicly extolling their merits, and 75 per cent of (hose .states intend -to uw tile newspapers of the nation liberally to get their messages across. A total of about K-100,000 has been appropriated. Thirteen of (lie states have appropriated more than $100,000 each. The highest advertising allotment— §825,000— is thill of Florida, which long ago became aware of the old axiom, "It jjjiys to advertise." Many of the benefits from advertising are too intangible to be measured. But some of the states, which started advertising j,, 19-.^ nilvc ;,i vpa ,i v ^cn the results burst right out into indisputable statistics. Arkansas picked up SI '2 new factories, representing a total investment of ?2,(500,000. New Jersey noted a §107,000,000 tourist business last year and a 28 •per cent increase in the value of (he state's Immded advertising products. North Carolina opened its arms lo 51 new factories during the lirsl eight months of 1<)3!). Wisconsin's gain in tourist trade was rellecled by the jump in gasoline taxes from $0,500,000 in 1935 to ?8,030,000 in 1!)39, and in mm- OUT OUR WAY resident fishing licenses from 05,157 to 112,185. The inllux of tourists into any stale projects ils i'11'ect far beyond the hotel keepers, restaurant owners, resort landlords, and department stores, who arc usually direct beneficiaries. The money laken in seeps through the entire community. It creates new jobs, makes possible grealer spending, fillers finally to the smallest business man, far removed from direct contact with tourists. Stales' advertising this year should bring even greater dividends, with travel abroad cut oil'. In many cases, I lie advertising ed'orls will help vacationers plan their itineraries.

So small a world it is, and -sci ill-managed. and The birth rale in (lie United States has tended downward for some years, as in almost every other country. Figures released in connection with Child Health week, however, show an inleresting thing. In 1015, when 'birth registration figures were first tabulated on the present basis, 25.1 babies were born for each 1000 people. The absolute low was reached in l!)3;{ t at .10.5. Sinn: that time the rate lias gradually increased again to .!?.(! in .1938. Tlml plainly suggests thai when pen- pie face a discouraging economic outlook I hey don't have as many babies as they do when limes look a little better. .Which is just one more excellent reason, if any more reasons should seem necessary, for concentrating on building up our own economy in the face of a tragic world. • SO THEY SAY The Ciimxdian govcnisncnl. hn.s no thougnl of alleinpliiiB to intervene, directly or indirectly, in the iilliihs or policies of the Unilcd Stales. — rremier Mackenzie Kine ot Canada. » * » Hxperience it the past, ccnluiy seems to provide no evidence that tcclmological improvements cause permanent nnemployincnt. or help lo bring about prolonged ctcnn-ssions.—Charles K.

Barney MacGrcfor, with two policemen in low, was dashing up "ic gangplank. "We heard shots," Barney yelled "What's up, Steve?" Grimly, Steve Hanson explained, Then (hey relumed to (he hold «ncl carried Mike tenderly up on <letk. One of the officers bent down ami made n hurried examination.

With some (juick medical attention he'd be sill right. Then for Hie first time she felt herself trembling. She covered her e.vci> with her hands.

"I think you've had enough for one night," be said gently. * * * 'yAt, leaned over the rail in (he early morning sun and watched Ihc huge cranes swing aboard the Northern Belle and dip deep i into her hold. Steve Hanson, puffing on his pipe alongside her, followed every foot of (he journey with hawk-like eyes when the crane swung out with the llalliday mining machinery. Val sighed when it was deposited on Ihe clock and transferred lo a huge truck which the company had sent down. "Thai's a relief," she said. Clausen nodded. "Yeah . . . but it's loo bnd we can't prove those yeggs were agents cf that line. We know ii, of tourer, but proving it is something else. It's next 1« impossible. Only satisfaction we have is knowing our playmates of last night will get them- FPlves a nice Jong stretch for robbery, attempted vandalism, and a tew mnro charges." "They're lucky it wasn't jnur- flrr," said Val. Hanscn grinned. "Look at 'im down there. YoW never know he came within a quarter of an Incli of cashing | n his chips." Tlicy didn't know Pop Grimes was behind them until the trainci spoke. "Unless you folks have serious objections," he said, "Eddie and me are going lo do a little honest-to-goodiiess road work this afternoon. About a couple ol hours outside of town." "Good," said Val. "I'll go along." "We ain't walkiu', nfiss, we're runnin'," Pop reminded her casually. "What's lo prevent me from renting a car and driving along behind you?" Pop shrugged. "You win, as usual. We're starling out a couple of hours after lunch, £o have your auto ready," She invited DulYy Kelso to come along, but he refused, "Thanks," he said, "you've got me bclfevln 1 it's safest to, be where you ain't. And for the luvva Pcle, make sure you don't run 'cm down." r r'irAT time afternoon, for the first uc since she left San Francisco, Va! wore ;i drc-- instead of slacks and shirt. She put on low- heeled shoes and slipped into a beige camel-hail- jigger-coat. "Where's tli' parly?" Sieve Ifan- scn inquired. Eddie Cavalier didn't say anything, but she saw (he loolc of startled surprise on bis face. "Thai's to remind you she's still a lady," Duffy Kclso observed, hut Val gave no sign she had heard. Ycl, she admitted to herself as they swung off down the dock, Duffy had been partly right. Clever man, in his way, was Dud'y Kclso. Too soured on her so. bad She he was couldn't iclp chuckling at the thought of it. He certainly had a light to be. She could picture Duffy, once .hey got back to San Francisco. He'd probably try (o put an m- surmounlablc barrier between her •md Cavalier. Refuse lo see her. Make her get her stories second- land. Make it tough for her in every way imaginable. Well, she'd had her innings. Rather riotous ones, at that. Anyway, she had a hunch that Eddie -avalicr wouldn't be too difticuH o reach despite Duify Kelso. It vas just a hunch, but Val Dongas -always placed a Jot of faith n her hunches. She asked a policeman where -he could rent a car and he di- •ccted .lier lo a garage a couple >f blocks away, from, the main Hisiness section. She climbed behind the wheel - , . , , "And Mike Kelly of a shiny blue coupe. It was good if. lucky he has a nice, thick skull." to drive again. She slipped through the noonday traffic and headed back for the waterfront Parking the car as close us possible lo the Northern Belle, aha boarded the ship. She was just in lime for liuicli. "Give you a break," she said lo Pop Grimes. "I'll drive you out (o (he other side of town when you're ready lo go." "Thanks." "Of course," she lied for Duffy's benefit, "f haven't driven in almost a year, but f think we can slay out of the ditches and avoid (lie telephone poles," U was perfect bait. Duffy let out a yelp. "Slay oiita that car " he ordered Eddie. "She'll get you killed yet." ' Eddis grinned. "Calm yourself, Duffy. Can't you sec she's just needling you?" Dully Kclso glared and put his * fork dawn disgustedly. "Well anyway, she killed my iippclilc." + * » YAI, found thai following behind Kddie and Pop as they jogged along the Skccna River road was a little too slow. She practically had lo stay in second gear all Ihe lime. It was too boring to suit her. She honked the horn and drew alongside. "Sec you snails farther down (lie road." She roared off in a cloud of dust. 'Didn't think she'd Just long" Top grunted. "She just ain't used to staying in Hie same spot for a long time." The sun had beon shining brightly, but now it moved behind n dark cloud which ciime up from the northwest. Val hummed to herself as the car purred alonK • country road. And then it happened. There was a loud report and when Ihc car moved sluggishly toward the side ot the road she knew she had a flat. She got out and looked al Ihe lire with dismay. There was ;i spare in back, but who was g'oin" lo change it? She looked up and down Ihc road. There wasn't a house in sight. Nor a gasoline sta- iion. Nor any sign of another car. She, climbed behind the wheel and sat ihere dejeclcdly. H was a' half houi- before she glanced inlo Ihe rear view mirror ;mri saw Eddie ;md Pop come over :i slight rise in Ihe roart. She breathed a sigh of. relief. "Am I glad lo pee you." she said. "Look what I've got." •She didn't sec Kddie nudge i'.jp Grimes slyly. "Gee, that's lough," he murmured. "Well—if we come to a gas-age or gas station we'll si'ml rack it mechanic." Anil Iliey left her standing there .5 Iliey jogged oft. (To Ue Continued) ALL ABOUT BABIES ANSWKU: 19M.
