We, Mayjjose Onr Stepchild Complex Recent activities of the .sliite highway department have revived to some extent a belief thai after all Mississippi county' is a part of Die state of Arkansas at times other than when there is a primary in the near offing. We have been forced to look upon ourselves for years as .stepchildren of the state and we have had aniple reason to believe that slate officials have so regarded us. This has been somewhat irritating and frequently down- v right painful in view, of liic very sub.. stantial portion of taxes of all kinds that residents and properly owners of Mississippi county contribute to the ;• coffers of the slate treasury. in the last few weeks the highway department has given Highway No. 61 through part of the county a surface treatment, designed to alleviate :i slippery condition caused by a prior surface treatment that apparently did • as much harm as good. Wo are advised that this treatment, had been effective for the primary purpose for which it was intended and we trust that it will continue so. Now the department has just completed a hard -surface treatment on 'Highway No. IS cast of Hlylheville from the city limits to a distance of a little more than a mile cast of the city. Certainly this has been of substantial value, particularly to those s who have suburban homes along the _ stretch of gravel road which was so treated. We hope the department will find some way to extend the surfacing further eastward and accord the same service to those living further away from liie city and for traffic in general along the road. If it can be extended to Armorel or to the road which turns up toward Huffman Ihu material benefit for the community will be much greater than the surface treatment for a short distance outside the city limits. Such a kindly interest as the highway department has shown lately should go a long way toward ridding us of our stepchild complex. We hope the highway commission will continue to exhibit the same interest in tho affairs of the greatest county in the state. When one speaks lo me of war, 1 do not, s,ce .the glorious parade of troops ... the yrcut ' statesmen planning and worrying in their chan- cellories. . . . j see the j accs 0( hungry, despaired, and terrorized women and children.— Former President Hoover, to the Christian Endeavor convention at Cleveland. PUT OUR WAY Super Solution The United Stales is not the only country in Uio world that lins its problem of njjriciilliira) surpluses. Br;i'/il, for instmice, lias destroyed $500,000 worth of coffee hy burning it, and has millions more that seem destined for the same end, Nairn-ally when Hei'bcrl S. I'olin of New Vor!< arrived in Kio de Janeiro with news (hat ho has discovered a moans of converting green coffee beans into a plastic malorijil stilled for floorings, walls, etips, plates, and buttons, hopeful llnv/.ilimis greeted him with enthusiasm. For if a tangible use for Iliis siirpliiH cofl'ee can be found, Brazil will lie on (lie way toward solving one of its toughest economic problems. Question: Why has not more projf- re$s been made in the United States lowjird developing other uses for our great grain surpluses, sincp we do not .seem able to find a way to gel it into the hands of people who want lo eat it? That is our problem, and one on which we do not seem to be mulling Ihe progress we might. , The FOB i The ultimate reliance pi' thu jicoplc imisL ho oil Uiem.'ielve.s. This must he so in any popular s;ov- ernmetit, and we all know il if we think alxnil il at all. We .seldom do. That i.s our greatest danger, ft was never more clearly put than hy Karl Griffith, Ohio Secretary of State, in addressing a meeting of the National Association of Seci-claries of Slate. GrilVilli, pointing out that Ohio is the only stale which makes its chief election official the Secretary of Slate, thus c'ciilrali/intf control ol' elections, appealed for belter election laws. "The most vital clement in the successful operation of popular government is the confidence of the public in the integrity and impartiality of elections," he said. And then lie added something that might well lie pasted in (he hatband of every citizen: "Onr in.slitiilions are threatened not by the intrigue and collusion of the corrupt and vicious, hut by Ihe inertia and passivity of the intelligent." • SO THEY SAY We have ntsolutc lailh in our instrumenls and a woiuh-rful ship.

"Linda, you can't 'Jo (his!'' She eluded him, ran up Ihe steps and yanlicd at the door. Behind her, she heard a liny metallic sound us .the platinum ami diamond engagement ring fell to the stone wall;. Then she was stumbling inside, closing the door against him. She slood wilh her buck against it, her breath coming fnst, for a long minute before she went upstairs. George would not ring the hell, nor hammer on (he door. He'd go away, quietly. She knew him that well. She did nol realize until much lalt'r that her subconscious mind l«ld aclcd against Ihe will she had imposed on herself. "Break Ihe engagement,"'Jimmy had pleaded.

With a sinking heart, she ve- mcmtercd Daddy. If she didn't placate George quickly, Daddy wouW hear of this. He must not hear of il. "No shocks," Dr. Logan had ordered.

If only she could hide it from Daddy a Hitle while, until he was stronger. She dreaded the time when Daddy would ask, "Whore's George? lie hasn't come to sec inc." Yet when the day came—only three days alter that fatal Sunday —she ma.nigcd lo answer, lighlly enough, "He's been busy at the laboratory, I suppose." Her father looked at her. "Linda, you're keeping something from me. I've tried lo gel il on! o_f noiirke,J)ijt she's likc^a c|am •vlicn'slic w.inls lo b'f.""™ 3 ^ i The palms of her hands were ! wet, and her mouth was dry. No i shocks, Dr. Logan had ordered. No I shocks. "Jfow funny of you, , Daddy, to think I'm hiding a deep, dark secret," she managed lo say. "What could I possibly be hid- "You've quarreled with George, haven't you?" The crujel voice was j implacable. "You never used lo I lie to me, Linda.

I'm your father. Surely J can understand anything lhal you feel is right . . ." She didn't feel that those phme.s wore right. She haled them. This other problem was one she must face and fight alone. Daddy didn'l ask her what |KK| precipitated her quarrel v/ith George. All he taid was, "Conic here, Linda." He kU.icd her forehead. Then he was holding her in his arms as he had held her on Ihose long ago days v.'hen she hr;d skinned a knee or stubbed ;i toe. "My little girl. My dcur, dear liltlc girl." benl forward and touched' _ Tln ,, frail, hand. "NoHi-R™ ing's wrong. Daddy. Really." "I wanl you (o be happy," lie persisted. "II you've found that George can't make you happy, dial's nil right. l_i don't mind as much as you think, my dear." He palled her hand affectionately. "Sometimes I thought it was my influence lhal was the only cause for your ever having become interested in George. 1 used lo v:on- dcr it it was wise. Because you're so young and alive—Ihe way your mother was—" Her mother. She had died when Linda was a baby. Daddy seldom mentioned her, his grieJ and loss hail gone loo deep. "George is a fine man, Linda. You know what 1 lliiiik of him as a scientist and teacher. But when I saw you two together, some- limes, I had my doubts. 1 refused to face them." He smiled in a wry way, "I told myself thai your youth and beauty were nol as vulnerable as they seemed to me. I told myself - you were enough my daughter lo value George's mind, his scholarly achievements. I was an old fool, my dear. You arc your mother's daughter. She married me for no reason in the world except Dial we loved each other." Linda was weeping helnlessly before he finished speaking. How correclly he had read her heard 1 She ached with love for him. Bui there was more to it lhan this. Much more. There were slill those bombers, black against Ihe sky; still Marcia, wilh her' trusting bvo\vn eyes. "I didn't want to lie to you, Daddy," she sobbed. "But I couldn't bnar lo hur f , you." when she came iu v.'ilh the tray. "A ('me mess!" she gninlucl. "Get off Iliat bed, girl." CJnicig- JHSly, she added, "(Jo on, slay here if yon wanl lo. I'll he glad of a lew minutes away from this room. He's been grumpy as an old bear!" "J won't be now, Miss Hourke," addy promised humbly, "I'm very happy again. Happy and relieved." "Get along with ye! Wliat'd yon think the child had done, robbed a bunk?" "I'll run (loiviisiairs and gel Tiberius," Linda smiled. "It'll be like old time.'i af;ain." 'Bring up the manuscript from Milan, too," Daddy told her. "1 haven't looked at it since I've been in bed." The evening paper was lying on (he hall table.

After Caddy was setlle'd wilh his- precious manuscript, and miles away from her, she sat down herself and picked up the evening paper. Bad news. Bad news. She glanced at headlines impatiently, wauling uot to connect them with > the Navy or with Jimmy. Suddenly a line of black lype jumped up at her. Linda stiffened, her fingers crumbling the edges of the newspaper. She must bs dreaming! But she had certainly read Jimmy's name'. Swiftly, her eyes were skimming over the column heads again.
