The Library Uefoi'c louj; I he Blyllicvillr library will inovii liiitk to iU old homo, niiidc virlually new by the (J\VA. The building will bo tine ill whitli friends uiul patrons of the library can lake pride. They can express their satisfaction in the improvement in no belter way than by contribution!; of money or books to enable the library more effectually to fulfill its function. In hundreds of Blytheville homes are gowl books which are simply occupying shelf space, from which they are removed only for an occasional dusting. It would be u Kootl thins for their owners to remove them permanently, thus creating vacant places which would cry out to be filled, and the books would be given new life and heightened value if given to the library, where they would be a source of interest and pleasure to many. Don'l make the library a dumping place for worthless trash, but give it good books which deserve to be placed where they may be of continued usefulness. A Good ]of) Heccnl announcement by Mayor (.Veil Shane that the city of Blyllit:- ville has paid up Us back bills and is now on a cash basis reflects an accomplishment in which the mayor and members of his administration may take justifiable pride. The city's financial condition when Mayor Shane took office was not bad compared io that of many other cities, including some of the biggest in the country. Nevertheless tlie city VHS "slow \)!iy," and there were times when-even employes had to wait for their money. To correct I hat situation required sonic vigorous use of the pruning knife, and .some vigorous attention to the collection of taxes. The job has been accomplished and it is to be hoped that there will be no future backsliding under this or any other administration. 'Benefits' oj Liquor The world .sometimes seems to have turned pretty completely topsy-turvy, these days. Some of the liuie byproducts of repeal are illustrations. licnicmber the old days of the anti- OUT OUR WAY saloon campaign!!, when the liquor trade was held up as the great foe of the public school? Well, it bus been disclosed thai the Michigan Liquor Control Commission just has turned $500,000 over the stale to help pay the salaries of school teachers. This money conies from the com- mission'v; proliU on sales in the state's litjlior stores. Under the law, all but a small fraction of the profits must go to the school emergency fund; and the liquor commission points out thai it still has around $I,OOU,UUO to distribute. If we have reached a poinl where John liarleycorn is .supporting the schools, the world indeed is upside down. ' Losl in llu: Fog Col.

"What is siiid here of tbe present applies also to Ihe predictable future: il is not iwssiblc for Industry under the prevailing profit system—to wipe oill unemployment. Il follows that numbers of persons—must continue to be provided for at public e.xitense. Whether these numbers are iargt or small depcndo upon—the extent to which—industry—distributes pi-oiils to workers." He Ml.s SIOBO as a bare .subsistence wage. a m ] 10 million as ;i conservative esiimate of the unemployed, which means 10 billion dollars a year to give ihcm nil a job.
