Arkansas and every other states in the union will do well to start now to look after their own affairs and stop running to Washington for doles -'of any sort. The morale of the nation will be lifted when states, and their 'political sub-divisions, return to the theory that they should paddle their own canoes.

They don't comb their hair until 2 p.m. They wear house slippers all day, and waddle like ducks. '"Ihey wear slacks with high- hcclcd siloes.
