J Sif»-> C~ KS- ••Black Legion" Defies Respect of. Nation 1'hc news from MictiiKiiii about tlie > ' "Hlack Legion" reads like a very bail dream; and llic most dmim-like Ihing about it is tlie fact that moronic hoodlums who dedicate tlicir orfan!•/.<>- tion lo violence nml murder should insist 'that they arc furtherinif "100 per cenl Americanism." Kepovls thai, the group bus 1:55,000 members in Michigan and has been responsible for two or three do/.en deaths Fcem too fiinlaslic to be tnlicn seriously. Indeed, the whole business is too fantastic lo ho worth talking about if it were not for tills one fact— The times are so unsetlled, and the future is KO cloudy, that no American who loves his country can afford lo remain silent when a group which seeks to enforce its will by blackjack anil revolver appears on the horizon. These precious stronglirm men from Detroit apparently hud no guiding principles other than a.general devotion lo the policy of interfering in then neighbors' lives—u sor! of glorified officiousness which is nothing but the bpiiit'. of Ihe small town busybody turned cancerous. That they have been able to enlist ,1 l.ii ge number of people in their or- gam/iilion merely indicntes lhat there aic moic fools in Ihe land than we oidinauly suppose. But in any group of this kind l]ieru L'lU the seeds of great trouble. ' .'The * seed's"nf.iy never sprout, but they are theic. iind tlie/time lo make sure thai they land on" stony ground is now, before some unexpected . current in Amei ican life provides more fertile soil for them. There was n lime, remember, when Mussolini's Fascists looked no more important or influential than tlrts so- called "Black Legion" now appears. There was a time when Hitler and his plug-uglies cut, no more of a figure in German life thiin llics-re gentlemen of the black robes how- cul in American life. In Hiily and in Germany, certain powerful interests discovered Hint they could *use an unprincipled band of terrorists who would stop at nothing. Thty made tho discovery before thu rest cf their fellow citizen]} coitjd rally the nation's inherent decency, and what happened thereafter is a matter of bloody record. There docs not .seem to be any danger thai this Michigan gang will have a similar apotheosis. But Hie time 16 speak out against organized mob violence is now, when it iirst .-ticks up its head; now, when all decent people instinctively feel a revulsion against it. We need' lo remember lhat no group which uses Ihe whip and i;un can possibly be "100 per cenl American"; thiit no organization such as Uiis one in Michigan can possibly play a useful role In onr United States; that no patriot can lolerale in liis counlry a gang of shiKKcrs and torturers. As long as we remember those sim- . pic truths, there will be no danger that these hight-riders will progress •beyond the point where the cops, the courts, and llic psychiatrists can han- ' .(llcjlhein,' • Tlib'Poiver to-Tax the Nyberg amendment to the state constitution, if adopted, would compel submission of the fales lux to a vote of the people, the tiineiul- meiil is opposed by advocates of the sales tax. Presumably they reali/.e lhat the levy would stand litlle chance of receiving popular endorsement. It i.v contended thai tho sales lax or soine other levy lo produce equivalent revenue is essential. Certainly it is true , Unit,.both the schools and the stiUo's social security program would he crippled withoul the money which the fales tax produces. Hut nce:l for revenue is poor justification for an unfair and destructive tax. Its effect upon the sales tax, moreover, is only one aspect of the Nyberg proposal. It would require submission to vote of the people of all proposals for new taxes or for the increasing of old ones. It would give business: and'the cotis'liming public in Arkansas at leas:l partial relief from the oppressive threat of additional lux- ation. And il would put an end to a popular legislative racket—that of introducing tax measures for the single purpose, of forcing the Uirealencd victims to make it worthwhile to kill Ilium. :.< There-Is another fide lo the.jnallyr.,.. in'lVouiSianir tlic late lluuy Long made himself master of the stale treasury' and, through his control of state funds, dictator. -Through his control over a subservient legislature he used the taxing power j hot only to obtain the revenue to 'maintain his organization butalso lo'punish his political enemies. In Louisiana, if you could be reached . by. • the , tax weapon, you either liked lluey Long or kept your mouth'shut. 'We'have no dictator in Arkansas and one way to'protect ourselves againsl ever having one is to reserve Ihe taxing power to the people. BLYTHBVILLE, (ARK.)

K01V CO ax WITH THE STOKY CHAPTER IX jyjARK CHAPMAN glanced at his walch. It was six hours since he'd crossed tlie line into Arizona. By sundown he should be there. Steam was pouring from his dusty old car as lie forced it up the canyon. At last he reached the top and, swinging toward the side of the road, shut oil the engine. Stepping to the Wound, he climbed a few paces up Ihe cliff. Yes, there it was—the home he had run away from more than 40 years ago! He'd been in every slate of the union since that clay. Yes, and in foreign countries, loo. He'd had luck—good and had—but when he sailed inlo New York harbor a month ago, ho'd fell the call of home. Now, wiihin sight of it—thougl- he had still several miles lo go Mark Ciiapman felt strangely apprehensive. He'd never wrilten to his folks in all these years Occasionally he'd seen a home- lown newspaper in some cily II- bniry. He knew the old folks were gone. His youngest sister had inarriec and died. He'd read that in the papers. He'd lead too—years later—about her .artist husband's .success. There'd been some men lion of a daughter. But the res of the family—Mark swallowec hard—what about them? JTE got into his car again. Sec ing he'd come so far, . hi might ;is well go on. Maybe he was still thinking o lliose far-olT days, or perhaps th bright sunlight blinded him as h swung around the last curve 01 the twisting, rocky road. Sudden ly iie skidded and the car barge into the handrail of the narro\ bridge. Mark was tossed into th dili-li. When he came to himself was lying in ,1 bunk in n r dark rcotn and an old man saf b his side. "There, stranger, better not try lo sit up yet." The man pressed his work-calloused hand* on Mark's shoulders. "You had a nasty fall. Lucky for you th* doc- or. had to go up tjie csnyon other night. But you'll be all ght in a day or two, though you ot prelly^badly bruised." "What about the car?" "Sorry, but I reckon that's done or. I looked- it over—but I louldn't be bothering you with hings like thfit now." • • * WEEK passed but Mark Chapman was still too lame o leave Jed Hoskeer's shack. It vns evening Snd the two were ar. starch, dextrin, maltose, vit: nlns /\ and u. and a variety • nlncrnl sails. Malted milk also is used In ti ant feeding. Tills consists of on .bird dried skimmed milk and ilting smoking on a^ makeshift >ench. ' "Yes, sir, I tell you I'll get even vlth the Travers bunch," declared ed. "They ; done me, dirt, tuning me out of the Rancho Angelo, nd me with my money ready to auy it from Peter,Everett.", His >ld blue eyes blazed. "But wasn't there anything you ould have done about it?" o! They showed me the deeds and the letter from Everett, ac- icpting their offer lor the place." Ted puffed furiously on his pipe. Then he spoke. "I never could understand Peter Everett going jack on his word. He'd promised o sell the Rancho Angelo to me f he ever decided to get rid of t. I can't see why he changed his mind and let this gang get it.' A horse and rider came loping along, and turned into the broad drive that led to the Rancho Angelo. "That's Dan Draffen. The Trovers gang put him in the moment Ihoy took over the property. They jay him to look after the place. He's a decent enough sort. I've nothing against him, even if he 's in their pay. He lets'me stay here—not but what I could buy •mother place." Mark Chapman r.moked steadily as daylight gave placd to nighl and the far blue sky was pierccc with silver stars. Hour after hour he'd listened to Jed's stories. He knew now he had come home toi late to see any of his kin. They were all gone how—unless Peter Everett's daughter still lived. * ' * * 4 'TJID you ever think of writing lo the man in whose care you sent your-rent money to Everett?" Mark asked next morning as the two drove to town for some supplies. "No! He'd nothing to do with Everett's affairs," Je$ answerec "Have you his adc\ress?'!. "Oil, -1 .remember -it., all righ' but it's no good to me.npw.", Jcc turned and gave him a pityin; look. A few minutes later he started lo talk of Ihe wonderful irrigation projects that were being put through and what they would mean to the stale. But while he listened Mark realized that it wasi; not for {proving purposes that Ihe;; Travers interests had secured Ihe extensive acreage that went with '| his old home. Mark had done a good deal ot \ prospecting. He had studied gcol- j ogy and knew that the rock for- rnations were what interested theij eastern capitalists — that there jl might be valuable mineral depos- Its on the property. "Well, I reckon I'll park the car here," declared Jed when they I reached the county seal. "Maybe you'd like to take a look around ' while I get the stuff I need. It'll t»ke me a couple of hours, so if you'll meet me here then, we'll | be on the' way again. 1 ' Mark Chapman glanced about I im. There were many changes I n the town. A big new court- I louse had taken the place of llioj he had known in boyhood. The streets were paved and many.] 5f the stores were new. As he walked along Ihe marlili' 1 orridors of the courthouse he no- ( iced a sign reading, "Hall of Rcc-; evds." "By Jiminy," he said tol limself, "lhat's where I'm going." It was a young man who produced the county maps, for which Mark asked. When he mentioned I hat he'd been away from the val-l ey for 40 years, the youngster ex-1 claimed, "Then I guess you'll find I i lot of changes. Property's been I changing hands since the Travers I Mining and Development com-| pany came down here." "Well, well!" commented Mark,! still studying the maps. ''Oh.I there's the Rancho Angelo. Who| owns that now?" "That hasn't changed hands.'! Someone told me it's still in the I same family, though I guess mo£t| of them are gone." "And who owns this?" Mark! asked, pSnting to the adjaccnll land, for 'he had taken oft hiff glasses. "That's a Travers property, ant'| so's this, and this." 'Seems like they'll soon be I owning the slate!" Mark said I Then he asked, "What do folk:! think of the Travers Corpora-) lion?" "I guess they like their money:! for they always pay cash for'UuJ land they buy.'' Mark Chapman nodded, and I with a word of, thanks, left tluj building. But as he walked slowjl ly lo the parking jiljice his brovjl was :- furrowed. Why had Ihe nevfl owners of .Rancho'Angelo not ve' ; | corded their deed? ' v .,, (To Be Continued) vo-thirds extra sugars, sucli as exlrin nnd maltose. There also re melted foods which arc chiefly ixttires of dextrin and maltose, iiysicians frequently recommend '.cse a.s supplementary foods, tie- use of their value in furnishing ilcries and in aiding the baby gain weight. Other specinl preparations, such ; Incite acid milk, milk powder, rolein milks, and various cereal ncl gruel feedings, should be used illy when prescribed by the doc- M". Scmctimcs you may hear that cur neighbor's child is doing re- nnrkably well with n special type it proprietary or patent food, riust should not be taken as evidence that your baby will do •"anally well. Every baby is a special prob- cm. H is not wise lo experiment vith strange foods without kuow- ng that they arc especially fitted '01- your baby. ; CHURCH EXCUSES Some of the members of our Saturday Night Club seem to be losing interest.
