For A Merry Christmas Happinsss requires a rcasooahle measure of physical comfort, but aside from that it has little rclalionslii|> .to material prosperity. On this day before Christmas Biy- theville is able to muster a good proportion of its usual quota of smiles, proving that in values which really count we are just about as well oft' as before Mr- Hoover's special brand of economic, advancement was introduced- Jesse Taylor, \vho despite his apparent youthftilnc.=s rates as one of the old timers around here, told the Lions ' club yesterday that il had been his observation over a period that included t, r ood times as well as bad that the worse things seemed to be the more t'.ie people of Blythevillc were r;ady to support constructive or purely humanitarian efforts to make them better- We don't care to enter here into any somber discussion, unbefitting to the season, of achievements, failures or programs for tho future. New Year's day is just a week in the future, and will bring tho traditional occasion for that kind of appraisal- It is worthy of observation at this time, however, that if many of us fnul in this Christmas the occasion for happiness it must be because of. the opportunity that has been ours in larger mrasnre than in the past to do something for others- The feeling certainly should not be one of smug complacence at a task completed, because it is by no mean's completed. But a/splendid begwmwjjipilias been made, with strong leadership and a line-participation on the part of the public. Happiness cannot be bought at the - price of the misfortune, of others. It can bo won by liclpiuir to make things easier for loss fortunate neighbors. The causes ot' lhe;e misfortunes, the root of th: problem, present material for planning and effort throughout next year and many years to come. Hut for - : a merry Christmas tomorrow, a feeling ''of having merited in part at least the good things you will enjoy, sit down tonight and mail a Christmas check to the Got Mellows.

WEDNESDAY, DECKJIBEU 24, SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Worthy of Praise Special muition is tluc the response which various negro church gruui>.s ol the county have given to tlie call for funds for carrying on the campaign against tuberculosis. Colored Uaplist churches have voted § : 150 for the purchase of health bonds, and other negro organizations have also resiwnded liberally. Few negro residents of the county have more than extremely modest financial resources. Contributions such as those referred to here represent a real sacrifice. Further than that, and what is of especial significance, they reflect a growing appreciation among negro people of the value of the health work which these,gifts support.
