We. have managed without gas for some yeare and can get along without it some time longer if necessary. But it is invportant when a franchise is granted it be to a'concern' that is in a position to give service within a reasonable tinie and, of even greater-importance, to give the right kind of service. .We'have had two unfortunate experiences -with the granting of franchises to companies that presented .plausible stories but, as it turned out, were in no position to supply Uiis city • with gas. The result has been two years delay. Let us not now, with-a 'number of'concerns seeking franchises, make the mistake of giving this valu- •able privilege to.anyone who wants it , simply as trading m'alcrial, or on the chance that he may, at some later dale be able to make use of it. With no franchise.granted Sve are at least in a position -to take advantage of any 'desirable proposal that may come to us. With-a franchise in the hands of someone who cannot.give..us what.we need •we are barred from' getting/gas from anyone. . •' .. . ; . '^;. The Treaty tfftns , \ The overwhelming rhajorit.y. gi0n;,th"e "naval arms limitation treaty in the senate'-s .final: vote- on ratification yesterday was a fitting conclusion to the long discussion of.-ihe matter and should be accepted by other nations as evidence that,-there is. much of noise .and little of'substance, to alarmist and jingo groups in this'country. -The senate acted wisely and in conformity to the. sentiment and judgment of- the'American people. This country has no' desire for military dominance. '•} All that we'ask is security, and when that can be obtained by mutual agrec- .nrient with other powers of the world for curtailment of armaments we are Avell pleased. The whole world will be better off when huge expenditures for so-called military protection arc diverted to constructive purposes. Give Them A Chance This week voter:! of Hlythcville and Mississippi county arc In have the opportunity of hearing two candidates for major offices. Tom Campbell, who seeks Joe Robinson's .senatorial toga, will be here Wednesday m'ahl, and J ulll) sl)C ' f - fieki, gubernatorial aspirant will be here Friday night. The Courier News endorses I lie candidacy of neither of these gentlemen, but we do urge that Uiey receive a hearing. In the first place we may lie mistaken in regarding tliein as less well fitted than their opponents for the offices they seek, and in the .second place, whatever their <|iiali[icalions, il is not unlikely that they will be able lo shod some much needed light on certain issues of the campaign. Privately, we must confess, we arc; particularly inleresled in hearing from Tom how he is going lo obtain for the farmers of Arkansas Hie 20 cent price for cotton that he has been promising, and from John why it was, with his own chances of election no heller than they are, he did not snap up that offer of his campaign expenses and a nice soft job that he claims was made him in behalf of Brooks ilavs, SIDE GLANCES By George Clark THE WINDMILL STATISTICS SHOW There are no- Ihorns on a French briar pipe, and there nrc no editorials in dully cli;arel papers. •y. :(• ••;• AU, AI.ONO THE LINK I hnvo worked at nearly cvcrylhlnc in my life.

In sever, of Ihc cases lire father could be considered healthy in every way both physically and menially. In four cases Ihe mclhcr had dicci before ihe child was oUI enough so that ihe could have af- teetai his life in any way. In ten cases the child had had what ihe psychclosisls call fixalion on its lother.

There was indeed a lack of desire on the pait of the ilcoholic patient lo get well so that the paiufuluess of his affliction is outbalanced in his cwn mind by his sense of conifer: ar.d ivell beini when he takes too much alcohol.
