We seriously douTit if anyone ever really bslievcd the government would : g. sell its cotton for less than,it paid for ;:tv it. Such a procedure would not only be '^ expensive but it would be extremely ;;."; poor i»litics. Fortunately howsvcr, E. F. Crcckniore, president of tbc Cot Ion " ; Stabilization Coriwrntion, whicli liolds "' the farm board cotton, has now eom- ." pietely cleared up the .matter with a ' definite statement that the corporation's holdings, about 1,300,000 bales, will be maintained "throughout the present col- ton season unless tho price in the meantime advances to or above the purchase ; ••'• price." The theory under which tho. stabilixa- . '?. tion corjjjjjg^jpjg^jysg'i'eatablislicil calls 'J.' for the taking off the market of the *" surplus in years of heavy production to *,',!. prevent undue price depression. The ~; cotton, of course, docs not disappear. "- It must be sold, and if the plan is to •- work out successfully there must be v- short crop years to balance the surplus .— years. The crop this year was rc- ,'~ duced a little, but because of curtailed ^~. consumption, resulting from unsettled *~ busiiv?s^ conditions, no reduction of the ^;, surplus is in sight. It is a proposition ^ that is up to the cotton growers. The ;„'- government will hold its cotton off the ;— market this season, but what will b« *•• done nsxt season will depend in, a large «.- measure upon the degree to which i". acreage is reduced next year. There ',~. will be no point to any effort to hold !£ surpluses off the market if growers "~ persist in producing new surpluses each «:• year.

Blythevillc Schculs To tbc editor:) From the Memphis Press-Scimitar, September • 23 was noticed a copy for the Blylhe- ville, Mississippi county, Ark., city's public school that citizens of same above mentioned, who have not sufficient means to purchase, textbooks will be provided for through the county drouth committee. That makes us think of oM days citizenship, although It's very noticeable, rating so wide publicity and notoriety for the city's 'public school. Fine indeed, though. -It seems, as tlio purge-of-.the city mass meeting has- iakcn some effect. Only hope (hat.-it will con- tim;e until means are found or raised to secure a full term school for 1030 term. Wonder if it can't be done if (lie gates are opened so it will come home? James T.

All at once, you will be using different cosmetics, eating different foods, setting your table differently, rearranging your surroundings, readjusting your whole scheme of life. Advertisements lead you to do this—even when you are least aware. They announce the new discoveries. Others try them. You try them. Of a sudden, you've changed! The old is at once too out-of-date. It is too slow in this age of speed. Too ineffective in this age of perfection. Somewhere, in advertisements you have not read yet, are things other people are reading about that will make a change in you. Read the advertisements here today. You will discover some of the things you will want to use habitually. You might even get ahead and start using some today.
