SPNESDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1930. I'.t.YTIIHVIU.K. (ARK.) COU1MKI! NK\VS ^ THl'Ki * '.' The last of the. unknown lands ... a rugged continent ... yields its frozen secrets to the last of the great explorers; and the name Byrd is added to the golden roster of Magellan, DeSotoand Stanley. Twelve thousand miles away a rotting skiff is found; Gunnar Horn solves the mystery of the Andree tragedy, and the world grieves for one who tried but failed. * Man knows at last the globe he lives on (Coste and Bellonte are winging tirelessly, into the teeth of the great trade winds) and man is narrowing that globe with the actuality of westward flight. * Meanwhile the sun's family of eight planets becomes nine; a tiny speck on a camera's plate is named Pluto; more of the outer heavens are duly catalogued for posterity. <• Physicians, tense, in the sick room, while a machine is enslaved to succeed where nature has failed... the Drinker Respirator takes up the rhythmic burden of paralyzed lungs. Jones, steel-nerved, on the fairway, four times claiming victory with stamina and skill. * Triumphs all. For some the laurel wreath of immediate acclaim ... for others the quieter fame of passing years. For all... the glowing, the lasting tribute to Courage. * For 193o has rewarded ... magnificently ... the pluck of a chosen few. But 1931 will reward the Courage of ALL who dare to achieve. Courage ... sand ... grit. Needed today by a nation calling for leaders who have faith in America's future. Needed by a nation seeking men who are not afraid to fight.. .who are not afraid to achieve. * For victory lies just ahead, for the taking. Gigantic, poised, the machine of American business wants only the motive power. That the courage inherent in American tradition will supply that power is certain... as certain as that it will reap its own reward this year of 1931. BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS
