Arkansas and California A plnca like this, climate and all. would be worth $500 mi acre In California.. In Arkansas ll's worth n measlcy little '$40 'an acre because Arkansas Is not advertised. The above paragraph is from an ad- .vei' a California newspaper recently received by the Arkansas Slate Chamber of Commerce. The advertiser, owner of considerable land in Arkansas, was offering for sale a farm described as "in Lonokc county, 2ii miles from Little Hock, one mile from Consolidated high school, on mail route, telephone line and Lonokc to Cabot highway." He might have added that electric power in any quantity dusired is available and that natural gas mains not'far distant. • It is the truth that always burls, says the Chamber, commenting upon ' the advertisement, and in this instance it strikes the nail squarely upon I lie head. There is little or no demand for Arkansas farm, lands because the conn- try is not aware of Arkansas' advantages in the way of climate, highways, electric power, gas and other conveniences and the productivity of its soil. In California or Florida the place described in the advertisement would easily bring $500 an acre because those two states have taken the trouble to tell the world about themselves. In Arkansas, as the advertiser declares, it is worth only §40 an acre. The American Legion, assisted by the State Chamber of Commerce, local Chambers, civic clubs, newspapers ami -public spirited .individuals- is setting out to'correct this condiliniK'^Tlie Arkansas Legionnaires will take to the national convention at Boston in October a complete exhibit of the stale's products and its raw materials. But : before the convention the Legion will ' have begun to tell the story of Arkansas to the nation through a series ; of advertising poster stamps . similar to but larger than the familiar Christ. mas Seals which appear during the hol- ' iday season. The Legion is having 3,000,000 of these stamps produced and early in September every Legionnaire in Arkansas will be offering them for sale. It is up to the people of Arkansas whether its land shall be valued at §40 an acre or §500 an acre. If they will cooperate with the Legion, pur- She Had Courage, Anyway This younger generation' often gets wild and makes some deplorable slips in conduct; but it set iris, at all events, to be able to lake its medicine without whining. A society jjii-l in Richmond; Va., disappeared from home recently. Her parents feared she bud been kidnapped, and police limited for her. Finally she was found, sharing an apartment in a nearby city with a married man. She was brought back home mid the man was taken to jail. Now it would have been easy for this young woman to have saved her face by adopting the kidnaping story. But she refused to do it, Instead she issued a signed .statement to a newspaper, explaining that she had gone of her own free will, and that the man was no more to blame than she was. You may deplore her action in going on this expedition all you wish; but you must admit that she :il. least displayed plenty of courage when the show-down came.—N10A. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark vast amounts of time and energy to fliui the significance of the varl- our forms of white blood cells, to identify these forms, and to determine their exact relationships In all sorts of diseases. Experts on the blood can tell from these relationships whether Ihe person concerned is suffering from one type of Infection or another, whether or not lie has been poisoned by some chemical clement, wlither or not his bloodformlng organs are functioning properly. In the blood-forming and destroying system the bone marrow and the spleen are especially significant. Unquestionably the liver and the gallbladder and their secretions are serlousy concerned. The whole mechanism Is so complicated and intricate that it will require (lie best brains of thousands of scientists for many years before it is fully elucidated and fully understood.
