Gqs and Jobs There will be som; ci'ilicism of the city council for its i-ufiisiil to tfrunl a gas franchise to a concern which professed its readiness to make an immediate start iii)on the erection of a plant arid tho laying of mains.' The criticism will be based not on the idea that Blylhcvillc cannot get as good or better gas service elsewhere, but on- the: fact that the early starting of construction work would provide jobs for a lot of men who need them very badly at this time. That the unemployment situation in this community is growing serious is a fact too obvious for argument. That any program that would provide a substantial luimhei! of jobs at fair wages would be, from that standpoint, highly desirable, is undeniable. But the wisdom of tying the city up to a possibly inferior form of gas service simply to help relieve such an emergency as now exists is something else. Blythevills wants gas, and the earlier the better. It would be particularly; desirable to have construction work undertaken at such a time as the present. But the people of Rlytheville will use and pay for the kind of gas for which they contract now for a long, long time to come. They want the best and cheapest kind of gas available. . Natural gas, where it can be had on fair terms, is the best. There is a possibility. that within thirty days a proposal to provide this city, with natural gas will be submitted.. The council is wise in waiting for it. '...."

Good men aro waiting for a chance to handle your job, whatever it may be, at lower wages than have prevailed for years. Lot's get that back lot and alley cleaned up, the garden pro- part d for next spring, the leaves raked and gotten out of the way, screens put in shape against, summer's return, the Back porch repaired, that shabby room brightened up with new paint or paper. It's good economy to do thcst tilings now, and good community service as well. Desires ami Powers There is a good deal of human interest in that rcctnl news story about the New York barber who wanUd to IK; a movie actor. . The barber, you remember, laid seige to a movie director, and forced his way into his office .so ut'lei) that the director finally had him arrested. The judge before whom (he man was brought was evidently a man of sense; at any rate, he contented himself with "sentencing" the man to forget about the movies and go on being a barber. Ambition ig a very fine thing, of course; hut when it lights on the wrong shoulders it is a curse. It is great to want to risu to a higher station—if acting: for the movies really is a higher station than being a barber; there is room for argument there—but when one's capabilities don't lit oiie's ambitions, there is apt to be trouble. JIany a 1 good mechanic has been spoiled to make a bum lawyer. Many a good barber has been wasted to make a poor salesman. There arc a good many people who might be better off for a session in front of that New York judge. .WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 10301 [SIDE GLANCES By George Clark .^^?"£•<;; •'' •'-•-- ~ -^ Lei's Help Make Jobs The local Red Cross has been overwhelmed with appeals for aid, the city engineer, the mayor and all employers are beseiged with requests for jobs.
