There had been earlier programs, but two years ago the government, after holding a referendum of farm voters, inaugurated a compulsory production control system with cash benefits paid to the farmers out of a processing tax collected from the consumers.

By ERNIE PYLK NKA Service Special Correspondent WASHINGTON— Not all So.uth Sea islands are palm-leafed paradises Take the three, for instance — Jarvis Bnker, and Rowland— that the gov- "rnmenl is now considering as base for a California-to-Australia airline wheu and if such line is started. These islands are lonely places. For more than 50 years no human beinj, hud lived on them. They are bare and small, and the sun beats down upon them unmercifully. There is no water, no shnde. For half it century only birds, and rats, and crabs have lived there. Despite all this, these specks in the soutli Pacific may play an important part in aviation advance. The three isles were chosen by William T. Miller, airway superintendent of the U. 'S, Bureau of Air Commerce, on • » recent tour, as the most practicable stops for ships flying from America to the Antipodes. He visited eight or 1( isles, some inhabited and some not. Then he employed 12 carefully picked Hawaiian youths so stay on Jnrvis, Baker, and Howland island; for a year, lo author wind and weather daUi for the government.

But industrialists point out that the .tariff system, while it' permits industry to charge a generally higher price for its products, in no wise interferes with the production and management of the individual factories. Furthermore, t h o administration's opponents say that agriculture itself has a great system of protective tariffs, more or less like industry, and that therefore the processing tax. levied against industry and paid to agriculture, is unjust and unconstitutional. This is the situation, then, which .confronts the supreme court—and a decision is expected before Christmas. XXX Regardless what the court rules on the processing tax and arbitrary control .of crops it is likely there will be continued government aid for agri- Culture. There almost has to be, for this .reason: Thc. United 'States, as economists have always pointed out, is thc only instance; in all history where an industrial and an agricultural civilization have existed side by iidc und,cr ^11 Mhrwgh American history this "'political cdnflict has laged. and whenever the South <and West stood together there wore material benefits for agriculture in the programs adopted at the national capital, But when the South and West divided, the high tariff men of thc East rode triumphant—and industry profited while agriculture languished. Today, even the great industrialists argue that our extortionate tariffs should be reduced. And the administration, being Democratic, is pledged to reduce them. Some progress has been made in that direction. We have executed treaties with Russia and Canada, and have made overtures to the South American nations—but progress is slow, since other countries have learned to build tariff walls themselves and are suspicious about coming out from behind them. This is a new situation for Americans—to be confronted bv a tariff machine which in all prior years only Americans themselves knew how to use. The quick and certainly legal way in providing Christmas cheer to needy Hope families is expected to be completed Thursday afternoon. A goal of $200 has been set bv the Legion. Committees soliciting funds are: Fred Gray, B, L. Wellborn, J. K. Sale and B. C. Hollis. Any person missed by this group and who desires to con- tribute'to the fund may do so by turning in donations to Hope Star. Mrs. Arch Mooro has been oppointed treasurer of the drive.

It is a story not paiticulaily of Christmas but of every < day, and in the tiachtion of every human race—thc tradition that the fortunate shall help thc unfortunate in order to wish away future disaster from himself! Thc government piograms help the needy—but this Good- fellows fund helps also the helper! Even in pagan lands of long ago there was this admonition to each householder Be hospitable to a stranger—you •may sometime need him! But Chustinnity goes, further than that, pleaching the gospel that all men arc/brothers, and that the abler brother must help thc weaker one. The story of giving is age-old, and world-wide. We observe it particularly in the .Christmas season. Let us remember thc Goodfellows solicitation. li 4 Are.Ajsted hi 3 Negroes and a White Man Seized in Separate County Searches Three negroes and a white man were arrested in separate sections of thc country over the week-end as the result of liquor raids by county officers and revenue agents.

In thc House of Commons, Prime of Hendrix, Speaks Election of Hugh Reese and K. E.

Approximately 100 persons attended, including Rotarians, guests, out-of) town visitors, Coaches Hammons, j Jones, Martirl and the Bobcat football squad. Roy Anderson acted as master of ceremonies and introduced Rotarians and most of the speakers. Grove's Speech : j High tribute to Coach Foy Hammons (was paid by the featured speaker, I Coach Ivan Grove, who in his opening 1 remarks.' said in one sentence about the Bobcat mentor: "In Coach Foy Hammons you have a good coach, a wonderful sportsman, and a real gentleman." He then launched into the fundamentals of football and told of the benefits derived from' the national game. He talked of sportsmanship, courage, character building,' arid other helpful factors resulting from football. He concluded his speech with .a .ringing plea^to keep Arkansas" ! "athletes / in Arkansas He praised the U&v<irsity pf 'Arkansas as an institution pf higher learning, and said that one of-the finest equipped athletic plants in the state could be found at Fayettcville.

Think twice before accepting some offer from another state institution," Coach Grove concluded, Praises Good Season j Other speakers Monday night were I Miss Beryl Henry, superintendent of ' Hope schools, who praised Coach Hammons and thc Bobcat team, for a successful season.

Meanwhile the agricultural areas await the verdict on the present AAA system, a verdict which must be written by nine justices looking across a country where exists the only parallel industrial and agricultural civilizations in the whole history of the world.

Isadoie (Kidd Cann) Blumenfeld, who^served a year m the work house following a recent liquor conviction; was-taken into custody by police for questioning. Liggett was returning to his apart-, ment after a grocery .shopping tour. On the front seat Of the car beside him was a bundle of groceries. In the rear seat was his wife, Edith, and his 10- year-old daughter, Marda. Liggett swung into the alley at the rear of his. apartment and halted his car. Across the alley, headed in the; other direction, was another car, its lights burning and motor running. Liggett stepped from the auto, his arms full of groceries. Three shots' were fired in quick succession, apparently from the other car. Liggett fell,' the groceries tumbling from his .arms, Mrs/Liggett leaped from the. ca^ and ran to his side. For a moment his daughter was stunned. Then she screamed: "Don't kill daddy, don't " Liggett had been a storm center in )olitieal controversy since he entered the publishing field m Minnesota about five years ago He began mblishing his Mid-Western American at Red Wing and several years ago noved his equipment to Minneapolis. During the last few years he had )een involved in a number of polit- cal encounters and only recently was cquitted of a statutory charge in Ramsey county District Court—a harge which ho insisted was a polit- cal frameup. During that trial Mrs. liggett sat by his side and aided him. The recent attack upon Liggett, who ppeared in court a month ago beai> ig bruises suffeicd when he Vs(? eaten by gangbters, ib considered an utgrowth of the long war against the Minnesota "gag" law. The fjrst proscp ution under this law, that against the aturday Press, a weekly of a type milar to that of the Mid-West Ameran, was started in 1927. The con- iction of editors of the paper was >pcalcd to the United States Supreme ourt by interested publishers and ewspapcrs and the law was declared nconstitutional.
