In Good Hand? .s Mississippi county Ims been fortiii)- .. ate in recent years in tho cliai'ai-tor of the men who have been in chaise of her public affairs- She is fortunate in the prospect for the two years alioad- Mistakes have been made, as they \vill be made in the future, but every department of county goveninu-iil has t'iven evidence of a sincere (k'sh'o to render faithful and cfl'idiMit service, and as long as tlsat condition prevails the consequences of such mistakes-are not likely to he serious. The situation is noteworthy not lie- cause it is anything better than the people have a right to expect, bill he- cause of the contrast it presents with conditions that prevailed in the not very distant past. For the full four years of his service as county treasurer Hie books of Roland Green, we arc informed, have been balanced at least once each month- Each month a detailed statement of the county's financial condition, checked by the county auditor, has been submitted to thu county judge and the taxpayers association' That may not seem very remarkable, but when it is remembered, that 11 r. Green's immediate predecessor in office never did balance his hooks, and that he ended his term with a uhortagc of over $50,000, besides forcing the county to spend over ?20,000 for an audit to lind out how the county's finances .stood, it is evident that we arc getting somewhere- Roland Green has a right to be proud of his ..- record.^Mississippi cquuly.hcim -take double satisfaction 'iii 'the \vay he has handled the job and in the assurance that his successor is a man who will continue the good work on tha same high plane. Other county offices have, been and will continue to be in good hands. That does not mean that there is no cause .for concern over public affairs in this county. Present conditions and thu prospect for the immediate future im- .pose an exceedingly luavy burden upon all of our officials. But at least we have the assurance that we have in charge of our affairs men who will make a sincere effort to solve the problems they face in the interests of Ihe people they serve. \V C have gotten away from the idea that once prevailed in Mississippi OUT OUR WAY county, and that si ill scqms to rule in some of our neighboring 'counties, that public office, far from being a public trust, is a gravy train operated for the benefit of its crew. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Who Started Ilia Wart An official committee of thi; German Heichslag, having studied I lie causes of the World War, lind.-v thai must of the blame for starting the trouble go:.s to Russia, with Serbia and Austria- Huugmy .sharing in the guilt. Being a German commitlee, it naturally views Germany's pail in the negotiations thai led to the war a litllis more favorably llian, say, a French committee would- Hownvi'i 1 , there is this to remember: all of this talk about who started the war is senseless unless il is realized that the war was chiefly a product of the Kuropcnn system of handling iuter- liiilional relations. It grew out of that system inevitably. If the nnirdi-r of the Archduke Vrnnx Kordinand bad not started it, some other minor incident would have. It is futile to try to indict any one nation for it. In » real sense, all of the nations were equally guilty. !fllf|.ffl/-.>^ -"—•"« K; iyv if rf- /•X-.&.V sM Jfe &?<• V * M'4/ W l'&t&!.*S-&-,.V *'^/••• > v$.9 The Win. Cuba M.
