They will eventually lead—if the?) — European war. does not upset all cal- ctilations—to an, all-inclusive program which the Roosevelt administration can offer as its blanket solution to the depression problem. A short time ago thc National Resources Committee issued a report on "The Structure of the American Economy,"-This volume was one of the most important publications of thc entire New Debt The' result' of several years work by the administration's top economists, headed by Dr. Gardiner Means, it comprises a ; detailed survey of what the nation's. existing economci machine would do if it could be kept working at or ; near capacity. It estimates that thc loss in national income since the 12929 crash is around $200,000,000,000, and remarks that a national income of better than $100,000,000,000 a year (in 1929 dollars) is attainable with existing'man- power and productive plant. • BIG REASONS It is milked clean.

A short time ago members of the Natlonl Resources Committee summoned a dozen or more of the country's outstanding economists to a conference at Charlottesville, Va. Members of the committee went over the report with these economists and told them, that, the commi tee's attitude was. ;in''substance, this: That after this the government must assume as on«j of its continuing responsibilities the task of seeing to it that reasonably full use is made of the nation's • resources—both in mat- mists will submit critiques on the report so that the accuracy of its finding may be checked. Once that is done, a second report, equally elaborate, will be prepared. This one will study the different svays that have been suggested for the cure and prevention of depressions, and—in general terms—will try to indicate which line is the right one to follow. After that ther» is to come still a third, which—basing itself on the first two—will wrap the whole thing up and present a definite program which the government can submit to Congress and the public. Public Understanding Held Vital The committee's attitude is that there are three main obstacles to the performance of this 'basic government function"—the job of keping the productive machinery running. These, it holds, are first, larnk of public understanding of the pro- second, tendency on the part of govern rrient to temporize with the problem of depression, adopting "pump priming" . expendients instead of tackling the problem boldly; and, third, the lack of a clearly worked out program. . In the end, it hopes to present such a program—in the belief that once such a program is presented, the ensuing discusion will bring general public understanding of the problem. What all of this amount to is that the inner-circle thinking (so to Friflay, Ocfob'er IS, 1930 Chesapeake Bay OYSTERS Dressed Hens 'and Fryers Every Day Phone 767 CITY MARKET We Deliver Dr. J, D.

Some time this iDonth the econo- gram has been undertaken. There may be more expense, but that, too, will be watched carefully, especially in building big bombers. Our staff is studying with eagle eyes reports of how many air dreadnaughts come back froVrt their raids. For example, the Lightning War is reported to have backfired on the German Air Force to the extent of 500 to 1000 planes to the extant of 500-to 1000 planes lost in- three weeks to the' under-equipped Poles. • • Anti-Plane Guns Improved For anti-aircraft guns have • improved, too. In 1918 American gunners brought down a German plane for .every ^gfegts.. Today they hit a towed target every 24 shots. > The need of anti-aircraft defense has been -proved by Warsaw—and may any day be proved by London and Paris. ; Meanwhile, the United States at last : !s getting anti-aircraft guns—516,009,000 .worth. Last spring there were only 24—today there arc 338 three-inch guns with a six-mile ceiling; even : more 37-millimeter guns and 50-calibre machine guns that fire 10 heavy bullets a 'minute four miles. The Army has experimented with a heavier gun. Thc Navy has a five- inch gun so powerful it nearly blew up thc airplane that towed its first target. Our lightning-rods for the lightning war are probably.as good as those of the Nazis, who have about the best anti-aircraft guns in Europe. U. S; Planes Perform Well Today airmen rate the German air lorce as probably the world's best— WOO to 10,000 planes of which 4000 or more are first Jine. But tomorrow? Already the. ' Germans' crack Mes- ierschmidt fighter is reported not so good as the new French plopes— which are American Curtiss Hawk 75's that ou.r airmen call "a very good ship." Our Army has another later model of the same plane that is 50 miles an hour faster than the "sen- Sfltional" French plane that beats the "sensational" German. Our planes, in fact, bid fair to become second to none in quality—but they would need to be, should our long, far-flung coastline be struck by lightning from any part of Europe or elsewhere. ready to be uneviled for months to come. But the point is that the administration's most trusted advisors are finally coming to agreement on what ought to be done, and that out of it all — unless, to repeat, the war upsets all calculations — will come one specific and far-reaching program which can be put before the country as the New Deal's solution to the depression problem. NEXT: The importance of tanks lo the U. S. Army of tomorrow. Revival Meeting to Close Sunday Boy and Girl Scouts Special Guests Thursday Night "As clay in the Potters Hands' was the theme of the services Thursday night at the Methodist meeting. Sitting as a group thc Boy and Girl Scouts were special guests. The theme was a challenge for youth to give over, his life to Christ so that He might shape it as thc potter does the clay. . The meeting closes Sunday. There will be no services Saturday at the morning hour,, but tbe evening meeting will be held as thc susual hour of 7:30. Thc revival has been marked with much interest throughout thc entire limp, and unusually good crowds have met the pastor at each service.

From her lofty position, she expresses the woman's viewpoint on notional affairs. Scnttei-ed thoughout government de. partments are Arkansas people, making news. It is the business of the AP correspondent to contact Arkansas congressmen daily and keep in touch .vith government departments for developments of interest to the state. When Gov. Carl Bailey comes to Washington, it is the duty o£ thu rorrcspomlcnt to interview him and ccep Arkansas AP members constantly •ulviscd of the progress of his move- ncnts here. Other Arkansas delegations arrive cgularly on this project or that and he AP strives to 'cover" their movements here, whether it means a trip o a hotel for an interview or a visit o n government office. The AP provides every facility for a.st movement of the news back to \rkansas. Each story is rushed to he AP office in the Star building, either by telephone dictation or hrough the teletype pintcrc available n the Senate building and House AP press gallery offices. The office in the Star building sends the story out over other auto- natic printers and into the offices of Arkansas' AP member papers only \ few minutes after the news story 'breaks." As the fateful 'neutrality' 'session of congress goes forward, the AP has \ full staff on hand to report devc- opmcnts as they occur, and an Ark- iiisas correspondent to interpret those developments with peculiar Arkansas significance. What progress is being nuulu by Arkansas' Baby Congressmen?" Is Senator John E. Miller getting his share of Federal patronage? What is the government doing to aid Arkansas agriculture? These and many questions like them constantly pop up and the AP makes a perservcring attempt to suply the news that gives Arkansas the answers. OUR BOARDING HOUSE. with ...

SEI^V JE CASUED THE CHECK FOR THREE FIFTIES A.MO FIFTY OWES/ > HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS Clever Chinese Outwit Vermin Carl Crow lias written another of his eminently readable books on China. This one is called "The Chinese Are Like That" (Harper and Brothers: §:>>. It is a running j fire of anecdotes with a human | touch and a highly entertaining j one. Here is a sample: I One of my fellow Amer.Van.s made j frequent business trips int the interior provinces . .. Like most other foreigners who are veteran travelers in the hinterlands of China, he had developed a certain methods of procedure in order to smooth out the rough places and make life as comfortable as pos- sible. Chine.su inns arc notoriously infested with bedbugs, but my friend had a system. . . . He carried with him one of the light folding cots with which every traveler in China is equipped. After supper hi.s servant would set up the cot in thu middle of the room with each leg immersed in a shallow tin of kerosene, thereby effectively insulating it. ... With a candle at the head of hi.s cot, my friend would read until ho fell nsleop. ... ! Onr- night, during tin- curly stages of one of his journeys, his pleasant evening was disturbed by an impudent rat which scampered around the floor and sniffed at the kerosene in the insulation tins. He stood this for a half hour and then in a fit of Nordic anger threw the book at the rat .... When daylight came he found the rat was gone so was the book, cx-C ccpt for those indigestible portions which the rat had not eaten. This was the last book he had with him and he made the rest of the two weeks' journey with nothing to read. A Chinese employe of mine wsw making a trip through the beautiful Yellow Mountain and one night in a Chines:; inn he found not one rat, but a half do/en, scampering about his room. But he didn't throw his book at the pests, Instead he paid one of the imv€ servants a few coppers for the loan of a cat for the night, shut the cat up in the room with himself and the rut*, and so read and slept ill peace and carried his book away with him.
