Utter nonsense "concuniiiiff conditions in Arkansas has been heard in he halls nf congress, has appeared in the public press, and is even talked on the streets of our own community. Without tho slightest dcsiro to minimize the seriousness of a situation which is worse than a good many of our own people have come to reali/e, we nevertheless know and say that no one is going to starve in Arkansas or clscwhcrs. There is work to be done ' to relieve present conditions, and most important of all, to prevent their recurrence, but there is no c-xcu.-'e 1'or hysteria, and that applies particularly to newspaper writers in cities outside the stricken area, and to so-called slatcsniin in Washington whose foolish and destructive words have been heard over the length and breadth of the country. The hungry are going to be fed. The Red Cross is on the job in 21 American slates, and it is going to scu the job through. There will be complaints, of course. Thcr= always are complaints in any such situation, ami in a task of such magnitude some of them will be justifiable, because mistakes will be made. But most of the criticism of the relief program in this county, and dsewhero has cume from people who in good times or bad have never made a decent man-simi effort to provide for their own lamilics, to say nothing of lending any constructive support to- ward'making impossible such situations as we r.r/.v fac:. ' The Red Cross ha; a responsibility not merely to provide the necessities of life for hundreds of thousands of destitute families, but to so handle the task as to avoid demoralization of its beneficiaries. Wholesale charily is always a dangerous tiling, destructive of the independence and self respect that belit an American citizen. It is to protect the self respect of those who must be fed in this emergency, as well as to separate those really in need of help from those who would lake advantage of the situation to live at public cxprnse, that an effort is . being made lo unnble th'>'e who. obtain f-wl from the Kvil CKJ-S to pay for ii v.-ilh useful labor. Tiie man who works for whal l;e gets is nul a recipient of cliar- ity, even though it comes through I in Red Cro*.". The man who is not willing lo worl; for he gets dcn-> ::')': deserve anything. The imnu-diate problem will b: taken care of. For the future there is a heavy iv-ponsibilily upon the leadership of Mississippi county, of Arkansas, and of the nation, to male,- i:n- ]OTssib!" the rei-um-nce of a .situation like the present. We cannot invunl drouth, but we ought to be able lo make its o.:i.sei[Ui much less disastrous tluisi llioM' w. are now experiencing. Roth the drouth and the nation-wide business depression have coiiliil/uleil in largo measure lo Ihe difficulties that are now experienced in this county. Bi:l their results have been as bad as they arc because we l.ave abused our opportunities. Blind lu tlie lessons taught '>y minor reversals in llvj past we liavi: continued to gamble with our resource-. Year after year we have bet our la>t dollar on collon. We are now reduced lo the point where we can no longer afford to gamble. Every farmer, and particularly every largo land owner who holds in hi* hands the fate, of scores of families, owes it -to hims:!f. to his community, and to those dependent unon him to plati his operations for this year on a basis that will guarantee a living for the families on his land. When such a program becomes the rule inslaul of the exception in this county the time will pass when :ve will have to call upon the Red Cross to help u.-. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark The substances us:d Include salt tolutlon, water, local anesthetic !-ubst3in.-cs, or various other cr^m- Icals. In an early day It was quite customary to attempt to stretch the nci-ve by manipulation of the Us- sue, but Ihis measure has been 1 discarded because of «>]nr<!c num- • bt-r rf failures compared with the possible successes resulting from' Its use. I MOTHER NATURE'S CURIO SHOP SI'ENSKK'S BIRTH On Jan. 16, 1552, F/Jmuna Spenser, called "tilt print cot p.:ets in ! ills lime," was liorn in London. He uraduaieci from Pembrolce college, Cambridge, at the age of 2-1. Two years later he went to Lcn- clon and found a plac-j in the household of the Enri of Leicester, win brought him to the attention c; Queen Elizabeth. In 1579, at 27, lie wrote and published "The Shepherd's Calondai," which marks an epoch in th? dc- ', j vclopnieni of English poetry. It isi said to excel the rhythm of Cl«u- i ccr. Through the Inlluence of I,?i- ' cester, Spenser was appointed chief secretary to t!:c lord lieutenant of I Ireland. Queen Clir.abeth confer? on him an estate at Kiicolman, where he wrote his greatest work. The Faery Ou.'en." In Oc.tob;r, 1508. his castle sacked and tj'.irned by Irish rebels > and his i-ifant child perished in the , flames. Spenser returned to London i brckcn-lieariccl and impoverished, j He died a year late and was hm-- '.

Tlie same nilc holds good in .state and national affairs. \V'u need more men in public life whose motive in public .service, rather th.'ii private advancement. Mr. Fairlield is such a man. There is always room for honest difference of opinion in public affairs and presumably Mr. Fairlield will not be without opposition in the race for mayor. We hope that his op|)oii:nls will be equally good men, so that whatever thc ballot box verdict 11m administration of the city will be in jjoot^ hands.
