A Good Record That venerable watch dog of county affairs, Mr. John B. Driver of Luxora, thinks thai the Courier News erred in suggesting that Clarence Wilson has well earned a second term as sheriff and collector of Mississippi county. Well, there is always room for difference of opinion, particularly in regard to political matters, and certainly no one who feels lie might beat Mr. •Wilson for the office should permit the views of this column to stand in his way. Mr. Wilson is not much of a fellow to blow his own horn. If there are in his record any evil deeds he is not keeping much quieter about them than about the good work he ha* done. And he has done plenty. An examination of the record will show that iii the months since he became sheriff there have been 16 homicides in the Osccola district of Mississippi county. Arrests have been made in 15 of these cases, and the chances are that sooner or later there will be one in the other. That is the finest kind of police work. 'It is a recoitl that puts to shame tlie work of the most highly touted police organizations in the country. A particularly notable piece of work by the sheriff ami his staff was involved in tVic arrest last week of the negro robber who shot and seriously wounded a nighl watchman at Reiser. •It is that'sort of activity that affords a real basis for making life and property safe. If p'unislime'nt for those guilt}- of crimes of violence in Mississippi county was one-half as certain as is arrest our crime problem would be largely solved. Dr. Mrt Symbolizes the Public Thought Every age ha s it.s symbols, awl one of thc most revealing things about tho present moment in human affairs seems to be the fact that the symbol of the horn- is the good Dr. Wirt. The doc|:or could not have been taken seriously at any other time than the present. Thc mere fact that he was able to get as much public attention as he did get speaks volumes on the state of the public mind. When the laughable aspects of this OUT OUR WAY dmn«NUbk> gwasip about radicalism in hitfh places are cleared away, it remains pretty evident that the whole business managed to touch a responsive chord in the electorate simply because the electorate as a whole had already been doing a good deal of cogitating along the same general lines. » • » We have, in other words, come gradually to the realization that something big and far-reaching has been happening to us in the last year, and we have been trying to figure out just what it is. We have set to work to rc-cxaminc the fundamentals of our national philosophy as we have not done since the Civil War. Hardly any of the things that have been done at Washington since March 4, 1933, are lacking in significance. We loosen our monetary policy nnd •find that we have lined the haves and the have-nots up for a struggle; we tackle our farm problem and discover that our new jKilicy may curry us far into uncharted waters; we set to work to revive industry and lintl ourselves engaged in an experiment which has no precedent in all American history. » • * The rwturaj result of all 'this— undertaken, as it was, in a hurry, without formation of a definite underlying philosophy—is that we have at last reached the point where we want, very greatly, to know just what is ahead of us. Maybe we'll be afraid of it and maybe we won't; the point is, we want to know. At this psychological moment, then, comes the Hoosicr schoolmaster, with his., horrendous laics of Communism among the mighty. The important thing about it-was not what he had to say, but the way we listened to him. In that fact—in the eager way we waited for some new information about the course that is being charted for us —lies the real significance of the whole business. —Bruce Cation. •UTTMVILLB, (ARK.), COURIER NKWI I Ililnk the New Ocal Is n very good thing for (he hotels, —former 'Senator James A.

Little time need be devoted to the regular extra assignment to the Smithsonian Institution and the Arlington Memorial Amphitheater Commission, but the navy secretary's assignment to the Council of National Defense and the Executive Council entails more definite responsibilities.
