The bill as agreed on in conference last iii'»lu carries approxi- situation. oOo Perhaps, however, this first week did not afford a fair lest of what the plan can produce. For one thing, the end of the month Is near. Bills, for tte most pavt, have been paid, a lot of folks are wailing for payday before doing much spend- in?. and Ihe circulation of money, and therefore of script, has been below normal.

Cooperation his be$!, liisf about 100 per cent except.that 'some have not re.stHzed'toat to buy script or to accept It for services or merchandise is not enough: Success of the plan also depends upon.'spending script Instead of money at every possible'opportunity. oOo The 2-cent stamp required every time a piece of script changes hands should not be regarded.'as a burden. In the Inng run the plan t nol going to cost anyone In Bly thevillc a single red cent. Instead it should be welcomed for what it Is: a self-financing method of keeping for this community a SH.OOO a month federal payroll and of providing {or unfortunate persons whose neciTs the community would otherwise have to meet in some other \vay. If by this little eelf- imposed stamp tax we can raise S2.000 or $2500 per month and by so doing bring into Blytheville $14,000 per mcnth, It Is plain that we are making money, not losing It. Of course not everyone who buvs script stamps can see where this SH.OOO per month means anything to him. directly or indirectly. But it does, if 11 brings no immediate increase in his Income it certainly, by Improving the general level of prosperity in the community, makes his job or-his present income more secure and contributes to the possibility of future improvement.
