A-Threat to Our Health Units • Unices the general assembly at its forthcoming session makes an appropriation to meet aid which 25 Arknnsns county units are now receiving from the federal govDnunont and the Rockefeller Foundation it ,is probable that this outside help will be withdrawn, according to Dr. C. \V. Garrison, state health officer. The result, of ctnira 1 , would be the serious crippling, if not the enforced suspension, of all county health units in the stnte. The Rockefeller Foundation and the federal government have rendered substantial assistance in health work in Arkansas, but with other southern states appropriating from 5150,000 to §200,000 per year they are apparently coming to the conclusion that their expenditures are not appreciated in Arkansas and that they had better spend ; the money where they receive co-operation. All residents ,of Mississippi county who have given the matter attention know the value of tlie work which our health unit has done. They also appreciate the necessity of continuing this work. With similar situations prevailing in many other counties of the slate it is difficult to see how the legislature can refuse to make* the necessary appropriation. Without a healthy people we can expect neither progress nor prosperity. Recent surveys have shown that in some sections of our own county malaria is taking an almost unbelievable toll, sapping the energy and.vital- 'itr of"the~pe°l'Iu and imjWKing a very serious economic burden. Our future, in substantial 'measure, depends upon its elimination. Tremendous progress has been and is bsiug made in the light against this and other diseases, but it is a li^ht that we simply cannot afford to see stopped now. other difficulties he carried on until it was evident that the situation would be taken care of. He is now retiring from the leadership of ihe relief program, but he steps out with the satisfaction of having handled successfully the most difficult part of the work. He meli the emergency as it developed and brought together a loyal and efficient organization which, with the assurance for the future of at least a measure of financial help from the National Red Cross, is in a position to continue the program hi- inaugurated. A serious task lies ahead. Hundreds of Mississippi county families must be helped with food ami fuel for two or three months, but the machinery to handle the situation .has been set up and put ir, motion. All that remains is to keep it going and it is scarcely believable that with such a start Hly- thcville and Mississippi cVnmty will fail to keep it going. An Important Job Well Done The thanks and appreciation of all citizens of Blythcville and the Chickasawba district of Mississippi county are du: C. A. Cunningham for the service he has rendered as head of the Goodfcllovrs, the organization which has met the need for relief measures in this community.

BY KODNEY mjTCIli:il NBA Service Writer WASHINGTON—Amid the worldwide depression, the ostriches of South Africa and Iho ralitits of Australia have had cause to rejoice. Style changes have hit the export trade of those countries but have bcnofittcd the animals. South Africa's export triide • in ostrich plumes has been almost destroyed and Australian rabbit, skin exports dropped off from more than 54,000,000 in value to about malcly 1 to 8 p:r cent below Hie prices for l::e corresponding period of 192!). Tlint would indicate a decline of only about 7 per cent of the volume, of international trade. Too MucU Efficiency The present fall of prices differs somewhat from the ' decline Ihiitoccurtcd a decade ago. In 192021 the sudden fall In prices was a natural reaction from the inflation produced by the abnormal conditions of war and post-war time.
