A Suggestion Ill abandoning'its luilion program llic Blylhcville school'board has nol .solved the local school program; it has merely put off for a lime.the day when u .solution must be reached. The postponement was wise', because it had become evident that the tuition program would not operate satisfactorily and to exclude a large number of children from the schools or involve the school system in a legal conflict would be unthinkable. The operation of the school system, free to all residents of the district, is now assured for six months. It is not too early now to consider what can be done to make it possible for IhD boys and girls of this community to continue their studies for the three months of the term that will remain sifter the district's funds are exhausted. Without further action to provide money for the payment of teachers' salaries and other expenses of opera- lion the only way the schools can be continued after the district's money is used up is to close them as public institutions and reopen them on a luilion or subscription basis. That can and perhaps will be done, but surely everyone will agree that it would be better from every standpoint to provide free school for the full term to all, rather than to close the schools for the last three months of the year to those whose parents are unable or unwilling to pay the rather substantial fuss Dial, would be required under'Ihe tuition or subscription plan. Permanent solution of the problem must be on a basis of providing adequate tax revenue for the schools, but that will require a year or two to •work out and in the meantime if the children of Blythaville are to have the full educational opportunity to which they are entitled, resort must; be had to • emergency ••-measures. A leading merchant of Blylheville has suggested to the Courier News 'a plan which, if it meets with the support of the business men and citizens of the r community, will provide the necessary money for carrying on the schools to the end of the present school year. It is this gentleman's suggestion that the merchants of the city, or a substantial part of them, work out a plan for giving one p.'r cent of their receipts to a school fund. To give persons living outside the IJIyllu'vilk- school district, but doing business here, equal benefits under the ji!:m, it could be arranged to carry out Hie phm by issuing cnsh register iwipU with each purchase. The person receiving the receipt would then mark it with the name of the .school district to which he desired tin: one per cent to go, and deposit it in a box to he provided for the purpose. If the people df Klyllii'vilb and its trade territory did tl^ir business here to the exclusion of mail order houses and Memphis and oilier out of town stores, local retail L>s!;ibli-hmonls would bu able to enlarge Hirir stocks to n point where tax revenue would be in- ciyascd substantially—perhaps enough to solve the local schiHil problem, Unfortunately, however, the indirect but none-thc-less genuine and definite relationship that exists between patronizing local business establishments and the adequate maintenance of local schools and other public inslilulions is nol generally appreciated. But with an agra-menl on the part of local stores to give a dc-I'milc part of their receipts to the schools, their patrons would have n clear demonstration that in home business establishments they were also contributing to the support of home civic institutions. The gentleman who made the suggestion outlined above believes that it would work out to the advantage of all concerned. Wo would like lo hear what other business men think about it. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1930 THE WINDMILL NO AVOMIKH Prof. Benjamin Boss, director nf the Dudley Astronomical Observatory, says that the earth is constantly pulsating, like the human heart. Prof. Bess and myself have exactly llic very same idea about thai. 1 have always thought the earth was very unsteady. That explains why I walked so queer the other night when I was coming home after being present at, a little parly and smelling llic scent of all that, whiskey the other fellows had bci'ii drinking. •Y- •':'• -'f- I have almost been afraid to gel out of the house for three weeks. Heard a fellow say sometime ago thai winter was coming around the corner and he didn't say which corner it vas coining around nor where, and I'm afraid it might run into me with my thin clolhes on and bung me up. ,v. :,'. .y. I hear they have opened up n hosiery exchange in Chicago. I need to exchange socks. Wonder what they will allow me for my old ones? 1 guarantee thai I haven'l run mine but three thousand miles. The top may need repairing, and I think there is one blow-out on the rear, but. outside of that, they will act almost like new. Cuba M. Higdon. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark mla there Is still plenty of reajon for giving b!od. Tnc modern physician, however, docs not feed the blcod lo the patient In order that the patient may manufacture blood from the blood that Is fed to him. He glues .instead transfusions of blcod from suitable donors into the veins of (he patient. The prompt result from this form of trcalmen' indicates that It may be on occasion a life saving measure. In the majority of cases of anemia, first place is given to the use of a diet rich in vitamins and in blood building materials, such as j liver, kidney, red meats, apricots ' peaches and prunes, together will: large doses of iron. At present, there seems to be little juslinca- I tlon for the giving of quantities of i arsenic, extracts of spleen, bone ' marrow or copper.

WASHINGTON LETTER It is with no feeling of exasperation, you may be sure, that the haberdasher says, "That's the last straw." The motorist who is set on beating the car ahead of him to the curve usually i;els his rites. By KODNEV DUTCIIEK NEA Seivicc Writer WASHINGTON.—The two Germans In Siberia who learned jus', llic ether day that the World War was over haven't anything oir a lot of the participants in the celebrated struggle between capital and labor which is also supposed to have become a matter of history. There are still later leaders who believe, certain capitalists arc out to destroy unionism and there arc still employers who believe that labor unions are the principal national menace. And both are likely to act accoi'dingly. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, which might be described ns mie of llje. more wideawake unions, is undertaking lo expose nn employers' organization known as the League for Industrial nights, which it accuses ol waging class warlare against labor. The league's membership is supposed lo bs secret but llic brotherhood says it hns found out who was at its last annual "secret" meeting and the list includes a number of prominent manufacturers. The brotherhood estimates tha' the league spends up to a millior dollars a year of employers money i:i pre.->sing cases agaiiis labor unions, which it- has been do ing since it was founded as the Anti-Boycott Association in 1002. Members arc assessed in proportion to the size of their payrolls. "The co-operating employers are of the old-fashtoned type—men without the scientific or social pjlnl of view—men filled with the lust tor power," says the brotherhood in it.s expose issued here. "Co-operation in meeting the common peril," Is said to be one of the league's slogans and i'. Is quoted as proclaiming: "In Great Britain there is no .cague for Industrial Rights and .one of this protection exists, the losed shop prevails. The collapse if government in protecting liberiy ind property during Industrial Irife is an outstanding menace in ur country." The brotherhood says: "Finding, after 25 years of lest Record Crowds Anticipated This Year at Big Mem- ' phis Exposition. MKMPHIS, Tenii. (Special) — Built around an elaborate program of entertainment and amusement Mid-Soulh Fair will open here next Sunday with predictions that 200.000 people will visit it.

Agricultural exriibiu will be fully as large while the livestock, dairy, machinery a nil other displays are better. The fact that a great many people will look to the .Memphis lair this year as Iheir chief enlerlain- meiii and vacation for the year has led to the booking of more amusement attractions than in former years. A gorgeous musical comedy, declared to be the best- musical show ever brought to Memphis, will be the nightly attraction before the grandstand. It will be a girly- girly show of elaborate staging and scenic effects. The Hoyal Scotch Highlande band is being brought for a full week's engagement.

Tnese bills will forbid [jk-kcting absolutely. They will uakc strikes illegal. They will make ibor unions suable on any pretext." League literature is quoted in an attempt to prove, that this i.s the nature of Ihe employer organlza- nu's legislative program. The nmie has also gone into the colleges with propaganda, it appears, for it says: "The League for Industrial Rights has undertaken to counteract this influence by furnishing 1 speakers who will overcome this ' radical propaganda and will endeavor to inculcate sound principles of industry and government. Departments of economics and sociology, and sometimes student bodies cf the entire university have been addressed upon this most important subject. Our speaker have met with cordial co-operation of college faculties nnd students and In every case they have arous- j ed great interest on the part oi the students. The experiment has ! brought to the attention of the officers of the league an amazing ignorance of tlic|! .phases of the industrial problem to which the league has devoted its attention." The league also boasts a long scries of test case victories over lubor unions in the courts, including Injunction cases at great monetary cost. tween the afternoon harness races.
