"Otherwise," lie says, "the people wouldn't profit by the illness. And 'when it's all over we'll know things we " didn't know before. I'm inclined to view the matter optimistically because • I can sec that people are thinking now. • 'And that's something they didn't do • last year, or even two years ago. Very • few people thought then. That is, "they thought of only one thing. They r." thought of buying and selling slock." 7 There is a good deal of sense in that. .Unquestionably the. inflation that pre"... ceded last autumn's market crush bred ;; some bad business practices and was responsible for an unhealthy business attitude. The cure is painful, but in .the long run it is apt to put us in a better position than we occupied before. Our Newest Nationa ....Great Smokcy-Mountains National ' -Park is at last formally in existence, r;.:title to the land donated by North Car- 'olina and Tennessee having been ac••; cepted by the federal government. With this acceptance, a new and magnificent 'playground for the people of the United •States is available. - This whole national park idea, when you stop to think of it, is one of the finest things our government has.,done. Year after year, tourists by the thousands travel across the country to visit these great stretches of unspoiled natural beauty. The Great Smokcy region fully deserves its inclusion in the list, and because of its proximity to the great eastern centers of population can be counted on to draw enormous crowds during the next few years. The Bureau ot Home Economics, we read, is telling parents how to teach children to hnnrilo money. There's nothing like giving them a litlle specie now and then. "I speak trcm the architectural and natural - point of view," says a professor at Massachusetts Tech, "when I say that the Shamrock has not a Chinaman's chance." Still, a Chinaman .can always be depended upon lor a close rub. A Good Program Governor Harvey I'ariH'H'.s promise, made before the Democratic state convention at Hot Springs this morning, that reorganization of the state government on a basis of economy and efficiency will be the chief aim of his next administration, is good news to all citizens of the slate. \Ve are particularly pleased to note that the governor rccugni/.c.s that genuine tax relief cannot be had without such efficiency and economy. Tax relief is a very different thing from tax juggling, and if we can keep away from the idea that the way to' avoid tax oppression is to devise new and strange , forms of taxation it will help us a lot toward reaching a real solution of the problem. Surveys have revealed monstrous waste in the conduct of slate affairs. If the government can be reorganized on a basis of a maximum of honest and efficient service to the people of Arkansas, at a minimum of cost consistent wilb such service, taxpayers of the stats for the most pail will not complain about what lliey have 'to pay. . Taxes are burdensome, sometimes, oppressively so, but it is the very general 'Suspicion that we don't get our money's worth, rather llian the actual amount that we have to pay, that is responsible for a large pail of the dissatisfaction. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER^; 1930 ,< A Lesson for Joncsbovo The recent disappearance from Joncsboro o( a dry goods salesman who had collected more than a thousand dollars o[ Jonesboro money In tv suit selling don] should bo n lesson to citizens of this community. It probably will be some time before Joncsboro people will b: taken in a similar manner. Of course there are dozens of similar propositions that arc perfectly genuine and 'bona fide. Thi? selling campaign Hint the mail conducted here was all above board for a lime and probably he started It ivlth the lull intention of carrying out his promises and agreements. Some of those winning siiils received them. Then; something happened, there wns sickness in his family. He needed (he money, and it was so easy to lake It. Any member of the suit club can tell you the rest of the story. Possibly the mnn does Intend to come back and settle matters as IM told one ol the clnb members in a letter, but how many ol them believe that he will? It, is nothing short ot foolishness for Joncsboro citizens to run the risk of losing their money In freak contests put on by individuals, sometimes strangers in town, when there nre so many uld and reliable firms In Jonesboro Hint may be dealt with at no risk whatever and just as economically. There always have been and always will be professional confidence men who go about the country living oil the suckers. Probably the man who escaped with more than a thousand dollars of Jcnesboro money was not a professional. He had been here for some time and wu? well known and liked. But there Is always the chance that the comparatively unknown individual Is dishonest. There is no risk Involved \vhcn you do business with Jonesboro's old established firms. Think H over.—Joncsboro Tribune. The crop-destroying groundhogs which are being fhol down by Kentucky farmers have cause td be grateful. They'll avoid that future shadow.
