The Governor Is Right We wish to add ;i fervent amen to Governor Paniell's statement of ye.i- terclay in which ho urged Ihu quorum courts i.of ArkaiHJis coimlie.s at their annual meetings next week to make adequate appropriations for county agricultural and home demonstration workers. We do not believe thei-i' is the slightest danger of the Mississippi county court even considering abandonment or eurlailmeiit of tins invaluable work. We have Icanrid too well to appreciate its value. And it is sincerely to 'be hoped that 'iio other Arkansas county will take suoli a backward step. As Governor Parncll said: "This n;xt year of all yrar; will sec problems facing the farmers of Arkansas, new. in scope and asi>cct, problems that will require a maximum of co-operation and understand ing, both practical and financial, and I know of no more comprehensive, helpful and efficient handling, of such a situation than the facilities of the two agencii-s just mentioned." A Serious Matter The counting and e:rtilication of the v.ote in last Tuesday's Arkansas general election Jias been unreasonably slow in many counties, and the Arkansas Taxpayers Association is .well justified in initiating investigations. Ordinarily ^0 little hinges ujwn general election results in this state that perhaps some election officials have felt that their duties were of only nominal importance. It so happens this year, however, that matters of great importance to the entire state hinge upon the vole for and againH numerous constitutional amendments, and every step ought to be takni to insure that the returns, as finally certified, reflect the will of the voters exactly as they expressed it at the Rolls Tuesday. There has b:cn evidence nf election irregularities in the past in this and other Arkansas counties. Illegal voting at certain Mississippi county boxes was uncovered no longer ago than the Democratic primary last August. There OUT OUR WAY is suspicion that th; same thing was repeated, perhaps on a larger scale, in the general election, in this and other counties. If it has been, the facts ought to be brought to light, and ths persons responsible shown that tampering with elections is> a thing no longer tolerated in Arkansas. A Memory of Tragedy There is a reminiscenc;/ of tragedy in the notifications the Navy Department has sent.out, warning all shipping in the vicinity of Provincetown, Jlas=s., to exercise a sharp lookout for piri-.-cojies in that region during th.- iicxl four weeks, as the new fleet sub- marina V-5 will be running speed trials there. It WHS in that area that th-: submarine S-4 was, going through maneuvers when a coast guard destroyer mil it down. The whole nation remembers thu horror of that tragedy; and for the navy, it is one of tho;c things that can nrver be forgotten. Hence the present warnings. ,lt i K necessary to give the \'-5 her trials, and the Provincetown area is a good place to do it; but the navy is taking no chances on a repetition of the S-4 catastrophe. CQUmgR_NEWS / 'eachers in the Jury Box An Ohio judge has >:ct some sort of precedent liy refusing to excuse public school teachers from jury duty. He not only insists that having teachers on juri:a will be good for the courts; he also suggests that it will be good for the teachers. With his first premise it is impossible to disagree. Our system of justice stands or falls, in the last analysis, OH the jurors. Any move that tends to placa educated and conscientious citizens in .line for jury service is bound to be a good one. The second point, likewise, seems well taken. A teacher who is familiar with the workings of Amrrican courts from the viewpoint of the juror ought to be a much more valuable instructor for. youth than one who is not.
