Regretfully il must be admitted that there are such people, but Lhsir existence does not obviate the need of -.extending help in cases of an entirely different character. It does suggest, however, the advantage of extending relief through cm- ploynienl rather than through outright charily, wherever possible. A good many of the men who al this time find it impossible to tnkc cnra of their families are men -who all their past lives have been self-respecting and self supporting citizens. They don't want charily. They waul an opportunity to work for a living. They warft to keep their self-respect by earning everything they get. Theso are reasons why the supplying of employment is better than cash contributions in the present emergency. lt\ the first place it insures the benefits reaching persons who deserve them. In the second place it is productive. There are few residents of Rlytheville who do not have work that needs tn be done in and about their homes and "places of business, Now is the time to get this work done. It will return full value on the investment, and will help solve the relief problem;, iu the best way possible. . Let the cash contributions go to those who because of illness or incapacity are unable to work. Let the rest of the problem be solved by putting the unemployed at work. If you can use a man for any kind of a job for any length o£ time from an hour up, call the free employment exchange at the court house, telephone number 208. A Bit of Propaganda Tnc more one thinks about the wind-up of that great Russjan trial, the more plainly does one detect a fishy odor. The thing seemed too good to be true, right from th; start; but the conclusion, with a kind-hearted govern- OUT OUR WAY menl saving the necks of a group of confessed traitors, caps the climax. There was the courtroom for a stage, with the radio carrying the drama' to all parts of Russia. One after another, these live accused engineers got up and told how European statesmen, in league with an oil magnate or two, were conspiring to overthrow the Russian government, restore the old regime and plunder the land of its natural resource!). Tfnen, in conclusion, the verdict; guilty. And the .sentence; death. And as an afterthought, a government that has rarely shown mercy suJilunly got lenient and commuted the dc-atli sentences to 10 years' imprisonmuit. One is almost irresistibly impelled to the conclusion that this win nothing but a great bit of propaganda. However, there is no sense in yetting too top-lofty about it. We might remember, while we laugh at the Russians for swallowing such a tali', that it is only a decade since the leading powers of Europe did engage in precisely such a conspiracy. The various "while Russian" adventurers who led armies into Russia' to overthrow the Bolsheviks were backed by such nations as England and France, whose statesmen now Mm* the 1930 conspiracy story too laughable to need rebuttal. A good many Russians died in battle, and otherwise, less than JO years ago, because nn* exact rcplicn of the present story turned out to be true in every detail.
