BIytlieville's debut in the league last year was an auspicious one with (lie Giants copping Hie league omilinjr l>y virtue, of winning both halves of the split season. Manager Hcr.schel Hobo's success in bringing Ihc Giants, weakest, hitting club in Hie circuit, in ahead of the pack was little short of miraculous as even tlic most casual of baseball fans can appreciate. Last year Blythcvillu had the only club in the Northeast A r k a n s a K JjCfigue, and probably in a gouci many other leagues, thill did not have to depend, to quile an extent on local financial aid, aside from gate receipts. The parent New York Giants paid the way for the local club and claimed a loss of ¥"1,000 to K500. The New York club is s-'pohsorinn the BIythevillc club again Ibis year and expects to drop §2,000 to $2,5.00., we are told, but wants a local fund of $2,00.0 to insure against such a loss as suffered last year. Approximately $1,300 is the goal of a drive for Hi is "insurance" fund opening today with sale of concessions to .swell the total to the §2,000 mark. - But support of Blylhcville uiuj .Mississippi county fniuiom at the gate is the support that will really mean the diffcience between breaking even and losing niciiey. With Osccola out of the league Kiis season the county can give itb undivided support to the Giants and from all reports Osccola ball fans will be with them all the way. Rcquc.sU for a large number of reserved .seats for- the opening game have already been received from the southern capital of the county. Given a fair break in Hie weather there is no reason why lust year's opening day crowd of around 1,100 '(official ."gale" count) should not hu far exceeded Thursday. Blytheville missed by less than IOU last year's opening day record for Hie league. Thursday the Giants begin defense of their title. Find out for yourself how the 1938 edition of Uu- Giants stacks np and .join the crowd lh;it. converges on Walker park and fairgrounds licltl. OUT OUR WAY The World Keeps Track ll is not without significance that the editor of a big London newspaper the other day chose for Im front page streamer the lie<«.llinc, "No had NCWK Today!" As thu New York Times promptly remarked, there are few enough (lays on which even the most optimistic editor win use such a headline. We are so used to had news that the mere absence of il is news in itself. If SM hours pass without new signs of ca- tiiNtrophc, we I'iin actually dicer about it. Yet it may not Ije wholly fatuous to siii^CKt lliat things are not (Uiilu as had as they seem, it may be that we have simply got our eyes open wider than ^ve used lo have them—that we can recognize had news for what it is, now, and Unit we have stopped kidding ourselves. That far-oil' pro-war era, which looks BO peaceful and settled hy comparison wilh today's unhappy slate—was it really so much heller than Ihe present, or were we simply blinder? The world was not entirely peaceful, before 101-1. There was a remarkably bloody and vicious war in the Balkans, for instance, and lli« lads who ran it did not need any instructions from J!W8 in the matter of making unoffending civilians snlfer. Italy wan lighting in Africa llien, too—picking on the Turk, then, instead of Uie Kllii- opian—and China was being cynically despoiled by the militarists, the principal dill'erence from today's program, beiii)!; lliat half a dozen nations were doing the despoiling and (hat China had not the unity or the palriulism to fight back. There was an armatncnl race on, loo; one which, all things considered, was even more healed and extravagant than today's. There were international squabbles tjiiite as poignant with danger as any today can show: Uie Aga- dir incident, the Morocco crisis, and so on. The common people of Kurope wanted peace, but I hey bad no more to say . about it than they have . now. Slruiling popinjays 'conducted foreign affairs lo suit themselves, and if world peace today can hang on a dictator's vanity, it hung on Uie vanity of shallow diplomats hack in the old days, and hung just as insecurely—as 19M bears everlasting witness. Nor were .internal affairs so tmiiji brighter. There were strikes, lockouts, depressions, slums, rumors of change, then as now; after all, the Colorado mine massacre took place before 101-1, not after 1029, ami il was in 1012 that the Socialist party polled 900,001) voles in a presidential campaign. The pre-war era was nol really peaceful or settled at all. We just thought llml it was—and, a lilUe later, paid a fearful price for our blind complacence. Today we at least know what is going on. We at least recognize danger signals for danger signals, instead nf ignoring them. In a very real and important .sense, w t; are actually in beller shape now i'nan we were then. By J. K.
