f mitten City Beautiful Comment* Grab a Broom To Work Miracle (The following article was prepared by members of Blytheville's City Beautiful Commission, which is undertaking • study of laws which will be helpful in ridding the city of tye-sores.) At Monday night's City Beautiful Commission meeting chair- maned by Rev. John Symonds, Clean-Up-Paint-Up-Fix-Up Week was discussed. Mrs. James Tully, Cu-Pu-Fu chairman, and other commissioners expressed disgust at the lack of pride prevalent in all sections of the city. There is a Utter problem here, dirt .in the streets, and many other blights that are easy to correct it anyone cares. It is not only a matter of pride, but om of lawfulness. A study has been made of Blytheville City ordinances by the C.B.C., ; "SWEETHEART — Barbara Chafin of Luxora was recently named 1965-1966 FFA Sweetheart. Today In History md there are a number of sanl- ary regulations that for the main are ignored. Here are a ew, for example: Sec. 5-500: Clean adjacent aleys: Keep alley free from filth, iarbage, water, decaying mater; Sec. 5-501: Throwing offensive matter on streets: Guilty of a misdemeanor; Sec. 5-502: Sweeping dirt and rash into streets or gutters; No >erson, firm, or corporation ihall sweep or allow to be swept, trash, dirt, or papers of any kind into gutter or streets; Sec. 5-506; Where garbage shall be placed: Not on street, sidewalk, or public alley, but in receptacle on premises accessible to garbage collection.

City of Blytheville is given a lien against the property for such; Ord. 467: Unlawful for any person to burn any garbage except in Incerators approved by Health and Fire Department. A citizen of Blytheville should realize that ignorance of the law is no excuse and.City Beautiful intends to encourage the sanitation and health inspectors to clamp down on violators. There has been an attitude of let the city clean streets, alleys and all city property. As you know, the city government has a herculean task already. If the citizens expect so much it will mean more taxes to pay for it. Why shouldn't each one try a do-it-yourself clean up of the surrounding territory, even to sweeping the middle of a public street.

By 221 B.C., the state of Ch'in had conquered all the others. For the first time, all Chinese were united in one nation. It was from the CMn dynasty that the West was to derive the name China. Proclaiming himself Shih Huang-ti—"First Universal Emperor"—the king of Ch'in set about to consolidate his empire. Weights and measures and writing were standardized. Feudalism was forever crushed and 120,000 noble families were forcibly removed to the capital. Spurred by his grand councilor Li Ssu, a practitioner of the Legalist school, Shih Huang-ti ruthlessly suppressed all opposition, both political and philosophical, and even attempted to wipe out all previous history. "This is the time of 10,000 generations," said Li Ssu. And later, in a "memorial" to the throne: "Your servant proposes that all books of history, save those of the Ch'in be burned; that all libraries of poetry, history and philso- phy ... be destroyed; that all"people who raise their voice'• against the present government in the name of antiquity be beheaded together with their families ..." Li Ssu's advice was accepted by the emperor. Then ensued the infamous burning of the books, for which generations Of scholars cursed the name of Li Ssu. The holocaust was not absolute, however. "Useful" books on agriculture, medicine, etc,, were exempted and copies of the classics were preserved in the imperial archives. Scholars who refused to surrender their libraries or their beliefs were brutally dealt with. No less than 460 of them were buried alive at one time. Others met a different fate. Along with tens of thousands of political prisoners, criminals and conscripted peasants, they were sent to a slower death in laboring on Shih Huang-ti's greatest monument—the Great Wall.
