MONDAY, OCTOBER 1930 serve. With that in mind it is our hope that our local.fair will oblain Ihu means for further growth and further service to Mississippi county. We cannot do much to insure tha success of Ihe state exposition, but we can provide a county fair or a regional fair that will do more for us than a fair at Little Hock can svcr do, :.. ;Fa/rs, Slate and Local '•. The annual Arkansas sUte fail 1 'comov lo a closu Satimlny. TolM iU- "tciKlance 'WHS 87,130- not, a i;real ik'iil Ipiore than double the nttcixlauce at the Mississippi county fair here the \ve;k before, and the Little Hock men who are the financial backers of Ihc stale exposition are out of pocket and uul of humor. \ Tlu- state fair, says Roy L. Thompson, chairman .of the finance committee, 'must be abandoned as an annual institution unless .'it.'receives greater support from the.state at large. Residents 'of Mississippi- •county, in . common, W-D presume, with people in all 'parts' of the state, would regret to see ;tho state fair-abandoned. They recognize in it a valuable institution for the advancement of agriculture and industry of the slate, and for bringing together citizens of the widely separated communities that make up the commonwealth. But if Jhc stale fai,r is dependent in • any large measure 'upon ^the support of 'this and other parts of Arkansas 200 miles or more from Little Hock, its future'is not bright. : Not many of us have the lime or the money which a trip to Little Rock involves, and those of us-who might afford the trip arc not likely to make, a state exposition, .in Which w& have little direct persona! interest, its occasion. , - .-: The experience of slate fairs all ovey; the countvy is one of financial failure .where they are able to draw upon .large populations in their immediate , vicinity. If Little Rock and central Ar- r Kansas cannot support the Arkansas •fairj ib is not going to thrive on what •patronage it may attract from Blythe- vill?, Rogers, Texarkana or Dermotl. Our own greatest needs along this -line are served by onr own county fair, 'which in this year of disappointment for the slate fair-enjoyed the'greatest 'slice:sa of its history from the stand•point bolh of attendance and exhibits. We look for continued growth of this and other county and regional fairs, not necessarily at the 'expense of Ihc -slate fair, but because of tlisir accessibility and their strong personal appeal to the people in the territories they OUT OUR WAY An "Odd Jobs" Campaign There are two ways of nu'eting any sort of misfortune. One is to sit down and call on the world to witness that you are being foully IreateU The other is to roii up yum slceyoe and go out and do something lo niaka things better. As far as the present economic depression goes, Ihe lirsl melhud seems- to be more popular wilb most of us. We read and hear of men who are close to starvation because they can't get work, and wo shako our heads and feel very sorry for them—and let it go at thai. There are exceptions, however. In Racine, Wis., the cili/.uis decided lo adopt the second course; and they have, 'gone to work so effectively Ihat their action deserves lo be broadcast over Ihc nation so thai oilier cities can copy it. An intelligent columnist named Tex Reynolds, who writes for the Racine Times-Call, got the idea that a) bit of a job, no matter how paltry, noes a job- Joss man a lot more good than'a. lot of public wailing. With the aid of his paper, he launched what you might call an Odd Job Campaign, urging everyone in Racine who possibly could lo fiiul, or invent, som? sort ot odd job that some unemployed workman could fill. Business and civic leaders fell in line enthusiastically. .The unemployed men were enrolled so Unit people could sec just how many nicii needed work. Citizens who had regular jobs looked around for chances lo hire men. Some . engaged men to clean their furnaces. Others found they could pay a couple of dollars to have, ashes hauled away and rubbish removed. Others found other small jobs. All in all,. a' good many men wcrjj given work that they •luodud very badly, and a good -many Mat pocketbooks got ;a little much-. needed stuffing.: Now tha important thing about all of this is Ihat it is the sort of measure that any city or town can lake. It is adapted lo the biggest city in the coun- Iry and lo the smallest. It does not lued a lot of wealthy people lo make it a success.. The man of modest means can take an important part in it. Some.of the jobs obtained in Ihis manner prove permanent. Most of them last only a day or a week. But in either casri they are extremely valuable lo the men who get them. A live-dollar bill looks pretty big to a man who hasn't worked since May. And it's a lol betler for him to get it by. earning it than by having some charitable organization hand it lo him. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark "My dear, Europe is simply ruined for the tourist. Nearly all the movies are in foreign languages!" TIIK WHITE IIOIISM On Oct. 13, 1792, t!u cor- acrstono cf the White House, cilicial residence of the president of the Urltcd States, In Washing-1 ton, was laid-. ; 'Hie mansion was first occupied by President and Mrs. Adams In I !EOO. The first mistress has put', on record the amount, of discom-l«* fort she experienced during the! 5lt>',\o winter of her stli.y in | Washington. Congress had ap-' prepriated $25,000 for furnishing f the White House, but Mrs.;! Adams, reverthel&ss, had lots to complain about. No system of I 1 ) V:'.is provided; there was neither lire vvocd no r persons to '• cut H In the surrounding forest,; and ris the fireplaces were without | grater, it was impossible to use : ccal. i Notwithstanding all this, Mrs. Adams wrote, "It is a beautiful, rpct, capable of every Improve-' ment, and the more I view it the more I am delighted with It." | The building was burned by tlie DritUli in 1814 and rebuilt In 1818. In 1003 the pressure of rpace was relieved by (he erection of executive otTices in lhc grounds connected with tlie main building. The building today is a two-story white freestone edifice. It contains t!iu private apartments of the president on Ihe second floor and tlie reception rcouis on the firi.t flcor. i Amons the latter are the fa-1 moils East, ity.ed for public reception, and the Blue Room, used for diplomatic and social functions.

Moser, a veteran of the consular service in the Orient, was borrowed by the Popperell Company of New England to make a survey o( export possibilities and has returned with ft glowing picture ot Japan's Industrial progress but a dismal picture of these possibilities. Tlio only remedial suggestion lie has to offer t for establishment of t American cotton mills in India and' China with trained personnel, using local cheap labor. "Progrcs.l is the keynote of all Japanese effort nt this time and nowhere Is it in evidence more clearly than in the cotton textile Industry." he says. "Japan's big Industrialists have ssnl their younj. men all over the world for training.

The earliest newspaper always printed a sign at the top of the first page of every issue depicting the points of the compass. The letter N, for North was placed at the top. Below it appeared a "plus" sign. At the right, E, for East. At the left, W, for West, while below the letter S indicated South. Later, the "plus" sign was dropped and the letters "N.E.W.S." appeared, implying that the information printed came from the four corners of the globe. And so we got the word "News," meaning the very latest information on any subject. • The advertising columns are "News" as much as the editorial columns. Advertising is packed with news. News of the latest styles, of a new food, of an improved household utensil, of a powerful and low-priced automobile, of trips to Europe and all ports of the world —and so on. Advertising has become "news," and people depend on advertisements for accurate information about things they \vish ; to know. Reading advertising is a useful and profitable habit. It saves time, by telling you where desired articles may be purchased. It saves money because advertised merchandise is more dependable as to quality and durability than non-advertised wares. And, advertising is accurate. You can trust the "news" that you read in advertisements. Read them as you do the editorial columns.
