No Trade Harriers certain Arkansas concerns iitly l>«vc suil'erud from tlic competition of Missouri matiiifnclurcrH and distributors who deliver their goods in 'this slate by motor truck, Earl Wiseninn, coinniissioner of revenue, has been vcrouiulud to cancel the reciprocitl truck license agreement between .the two states, thus forcing the Missourians to pay the high Arkansas fees before they can send their trucks across tlio line. If the commissioner's order, now temporarily in abeyance, is permitted to become effective, the result will be a sort of protective lurid' fur the l>ene- lil of Arkansas concerns menaced by out-of-statc competition. Unfortunately, however, Unit sort of thing works both ways. Arkansas concerns doing business in Missouri will be required to provide their trucks willr Missouri lags. And that, will not be all. Sooner or later some Missourian, perhaps unfamiliar with the regulations, will send --his truck into Arkansas without the proper lags. H will be seized by Arkansas officers, the driver will be jailed, and both will be held until the fee, possibly with penalties and costs attached, is paid. The Missonrian and his friends will be indignant and the next lime an Arkansas truck ventures inlo his town there will be reprisal in Ihc form of arrest for some perhaps purely tcch- -nical violation of the law. Ill .feeling will be created and will spread until rc'sideiifs 1 o*f one state will hesitate lo drive into the other. Business will suffer. Arkansas and Missouri concerns both will lose valuable markets. Who will benefit? The chances arc that nobody will. Certainly losses on both sides of the stale Hncvwill far outweigh advantages. For reasons of political administration it is necessary to have internal boundary lines in this large country. But it was never contemplated that those boundaries should become barriers lo trade among the people of the United States. They should not be permitted to become barriers and we trust that Commissioner Wiseman will do his part to prevent it. Relief and \VPA checks have put i'm vagrant out ot business. —William N. McNalr, mayor of Pittsburgh. * * * . Thoujht governs the world, and the press is the transmitter and registrar of thought. —Pope Pius, addressing foreign newspapermen. Relief and Politics Senator Vamlcnbcrg, who has become one of the Republican minority's most vocal critics of the Roosevelt administration, arguing unsuccessfully on Hie senate floor yesterday for an amendment to turn Ihc administration of relief funds over lo the stales, made the statement Ihul through such a procedure "waste and political ex- • ploilation" in the expenditure of relief funds could lie escaped. Worxe nonsense was never uttered. Administration of the relief program has not been free from waste and politics. But for the most part the trouble has been that the states have had too much voice in Ihe administration of relief rather than too little. Does anyone in his right mind believe that the gentlemen in charge of most of our sitiilc governments arc less politically inclined than Harry Hopkins? The record doesn't indicate it. A good part of the shortcomings of the relief administration has resulted from Hopkins' inclination In compromise with ;(U(lc politicians. If ho was forced lo turn the whole program over to them Mr. Vandenberg would indeed see a demonstration of "political exploitation." Youth Isn't, Fooled The revolt of American college youth against tlie idcii of war, particularly as itmight iilt'ecl tbe United States, is gelling to be something of significance dnys. ^he trend is in sharp contrast to ill) movements in Na/.i Germany S" Fascist Italy, where the sons and daughters of World War participants are following llic same blind ptilli, only to find Ihcmselvc.s hopelessly cn- .snarcd, as wore tllelr fathers, in the toils of the war machine. The generation now coming into maturity in the United Status has profiled from llic experiences and warnings of ils disillusioned predecessor. II, therefore, harbors no illusions about the whole ghastly business of war. H has not been fooled. That is something for which we may be mighty thankful some day. BLYTHEVILLB, (AKK.)

"That's 'Heart's Delight'," he said, pointing out tin low, white clapboard house with ils gray weathered roof, cresting a low hill. Gail's eyes glowed as she turned to him. She had never known real home. Ever since her mother's death, when Gail was little more than a babe, she and he father had wandered from place to place—here for a few months there for a year, but never Ion; enough anywhere to make a home The slaccato note ot an auto mobile horn brought them swiftly back from the land of romance nick glanced in the mirror.

"I thought .you'd like it; my ear." Mrs. Searles drew the fluttering not curtains still further side. "We're not very formal here, 'ake your time.' There's only the amily here tonight. Dick told me e didn't want any other guests." frs. Searles smiled significantly s she left the room. Gail's cheeks grew rosy. She new Mrs. Searles approved of icr friendship with Dick. That it vould ripen inlo a warmer at- achtncnt was the wish of every ncmber of the family. Hadn't losemary urged her to marry her Brother? Suddenly, as Gail slipped an antique bracelet on her slender vrist, she recalled a pair of twin- ding blue eyes and a lock of dark lair that fell carelessly across a vide forehead. Had she lost her icart to Derek Hargreavcs—an artist who could probably never offer his wife anything rrioro than i sludio apartment, who'd never know from month to month what lis income might be? Yet as jail walked lightly down the broad, softly-carpeted stairs and past the beautiful antique furniture in the hall, she realized that, without love, even a gorgeous home like this would be a prison Dinner was a gay affair. Gail related some of her experiences at Madame's, yet, as she talked she knew she was giving only one angle of the picture. She did not mention the little meannesses that she had discovered were vital part character. of Madame Lizette's in some enchanted spot. Docsn' the moonlight make everything look different!"

"Oh, there, Honey, forgive m shouldn't speak like that, but ,'s that that's coming against i lien—" suddenly he stopped. I new if he raved against her pr ession, Gail would have still le use for him. "I'm going in now," she sa oftly. "Good night!" The go eous moonlit garden had becor. place of torture for her. When she reached the Terrai "Yes, Dad, but dinner will be served in a quarter of an hour. I'm sure you'd like lo go to your room, wouldn't you, Gail?"

"!' think we'd bettor stop. I ooks to me as though you nee a good rest." "On, I'm not tired, only th minute I "get near the sea I'm al most os'ercorne \yilh sleep." "Let's take a walk, Gail.
