' . * '"•• *"*v>*« Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by Th» Editor .Alex. H. Washburn That Income Tax Mouftetrap SHU Needs Some Help Dr. Emmett Thompson's income tax story goes like this: One Negro was explaining to -another about the federal short "A. Now 'A' means how much money did you git. "B. Hit means how much have you cot left. "C, Send it to us." The Mousetrap Needs Advertising (Charlotte, N. C., Observer) The old saw that, if a man makes .a better mousetrap, the world will *beat a path to his door, is only conditionally true. If the world does not know the man has made the mousetrap, or, if it is not convinced that it is a better one, no path will be beaten. Grass will grow on his doorstep, even though he confronts the mice with a more 1 terrifying problem than belling the cat. It is advertising that tells the world first that the trap'has been N|made. But that is not enough. It must be supplemented by a 1 skillful appeal to the wants and desires of prospective customers. The people must be made to want the trap, for, if they don't want it, the inventor could have a warehouse full and never sell one. Finally, the-customer must be made to want this particular kind of trap in preference to other brands.. By making the people want what pur inventive genius and our in- <$tlustry can produce for their comfort and convenience, advertising has done as much as any one force to give us the standard of living that is the envy of the world. It' works in an endless circle that creates wealth. By increasing sales, it raises the earnings of business. With those earnings industry expands its operations. This expansion makes .more jobs, so that more people can buy the s. It is, therefore, the spark "plug Pf pur creative capitalism. It has, however, its responsibilities. So many techniques have been developed to appeal • -to the wants pfvbuyers that the advertiser must be careful that the claims he makes for his product are honest. The dishonest advertiser is automatically punished. A customer once fooled does' not come back. If that happened often enough, such an advertiser soon finds himself vvjth- customers. :. 'It is no coincidence that-America, the highest living standard in the;world, has also thq most highly developed advertising, and, on the whole, the most, honest. To realize its importance, try to imagine this country •with no advertising at all.-How could you ever find out what to buy or where to btjy it? , . - ; ' • ARKANSAS: CdftsfdHf iness through SalurSaft light rain or sno# SflttftdSy' <" south this afterfidttrt Idtlight, »9 portant change itf tefli lowest tonight Jfl IH6 Sfl'S, & 55TH YEAR: VOL. 55 — NO. 119 Star of Hop* 1*»», Pr*M 1*27 Contolldattd tan.

Stuart Charms Crowd at Hope C.ofC. Banquet A speech by a Witty visiting Irishman and a fine musical program of local singers featured the annual banquet of Hope' Chamber of Commerce in the high school Friday night. Ian Stuart of Nashville, Tenn.. director of public relations for the Southern States Industrial Council, was the speaker. Born in Ireland he came to America in 1947 at the invitation of Princeton university. He is reputed to be the only educator who has held executive school posts in three countries, Ireland, England, and the United States. Mr. Stuart Was an All-British athlete in both track and football, and today he devotes the same energy in traveling around America preaching the virtue of our way of life, with a.particular slant toward youth. He told his audience Friday night he still thinks of himself as a teacher and preacher. He said the Free World has a strength which the Iron Curtain countries do not have — and that is, belief in God. And some Old Country humor cropped out at the very beginning of his speech. Said Mr. Stuart: A visitor complained that Ireland was .cold, wet, and full of Catholics. Retorted a native: "Well, you could try Hell — it's lot, dry, and full of Protestants." Henry: Hayhes opened the pro;ram with invocation, which was ollbwed by Mrs. .Ed Ogran in two origs, accompanied by Luther Holl- =imon. Jr. The Rev. Ed Pendletpn an'g two numbers —'and both sing- irs and pianist were .given an jvation.

Molbtov said today results of the Berlin conference can be measured only by'- what happens whin the Big Four meet April 26 with Communist China and other nations at Geneva to discuss peace in Asia, In a 7,500-word report on' the Berlin talks, which ended 15 days ago, Molotov reiterated Soviet charges that Western defense preparations point to a third world war. He blamed the United States Britain and France for East-West disagreements that remained unsolved. The statement, played up in all Moscow newspapers and broadcast by the Moscow radio, criticized U.

Applauds Nomination of Negro to Board WASHINTON Ml Republican and Democratic members of the Senate Labor Committee today ap plauded President Eisenhower's no mination of a Missouri Negro to be assistant secretary of labor but stressed they would not be influenc ed by his race in considering con firmation. "We're interested in his qualifi cations, not the color of his skin," said the committee chairman, Sen. H. Alexander Smith (RNJ). The nominee, 60-year-old J. Ernest Wilkins, now is a Chicago at torney and a lifelong Republican. He is the first Negro to be named to a post of comparable rank in jmore than 40 yearsrsinqe William H, Lewis served as an "assistant at torney general in the administrat ion of President William Howard Taft. : Smith said his committee will hold hearings on the nomination next week.

"Certain defenders of freedom ike such freedom as gives exploiters and militarists a free hand and a life of plenty, while the laboring people live under the constant shadow of'war and fresh annihilation," Molotov said. He 'said the Berlin conference was wothwhile because it aired various world questions and cleared the road to the Geneva parley — "of definite international significance" —on Korea and In. dochina. Chances of settling the seven- year-old Indochina war at Geneva, said, depend on "the position of the French government and also on the position of the U.S.A., which is increasingly interfering in Lhe affairs of Incohina." "The main thing, however," he added, "will depend on recognition by all the conference participants of the need to settle the question of peace there, not through continuing a hopeless (French Unio?i- Vietminh, war, but through an agreement conforming to the principles of freedom and the national independence .of the peoples."

Godfrey Is Grounded for a Month WASHINTON (UP) — A Civl Aeronautics Board: examiner recommended today that televisior star Arthur Godfrey be grounded for six months for serious .violations of flying safety rules.

The TV wit's, attorney said he has not decided whether to appeal. He said he wants to study the detailed decision first. The Civil Aeronautics Administration had accused Godfrey of "careless" flying when he flew close to the control tower at Teterboro, N. J.,las t Jan. 7 in taking off in his twin-engine DC-3, Godfrey admitted he did obeyey tower orders but insisted he was forced to do so by a. gusty wind. Ruppar said Godfrey violated traffic rules in the take-off arid also was in violation of regulations because his CAA medical certificate had expired six months earlier.

In recommending the maximum suspension period of six months, the examiner said he wa$ convinced Godfrey deliberately turned his plane toward the control tower. Occupants of the tower ha.Ci said the DC-3 came so close they ran for safety. R,uppar said there appears to be : no apparent reason why the plane co'uld not have been turned back on to its proper course in the space between the runway and the tower.

Jowest point in recent years. The report said the July 4 frost destroyed about one-fifth of the Brazilain coffee crop and 80 percent of the young trees planted in 1950 "worsening the outlook for coffee prices for the next five years," The report is the result of a study undertaken by the council's special commission on coffee which called a special session at the Fan American union last month after the price rise proydked demands for congressional investigations and boycotts.
