Why Money Is Needed Chairman John Barton Payne's statement that close to a million Americans will be receiving aid from the Kert Gross in another fortnight emphasizes the importance of speedy public contribution to the organization's relief fund. The $10,000,000 which the Red Cro.-s is asking looks like a good ihal of money.- But when you analyze tlie situation in the light of Mr. Payne's statement it is obvious that it must be the bare minimum with which the Red Cross can function. If a million people are to be helped, that fund will only provide ?10 for each of them; and no matter how carefully you handle it, you can't buy a whole winter's supply of fuel, groceries and warm clothing for $10. Mr. Payne's statement should b= all that is needed to make the nation over-subscribe its quota in record time. new burdens on the county treasury or upon the taxpayers of the county. Jt is usually easy to get .signatures to a petition. We strongly doubt, however, if any petition in behalf of further entrenching the fee system in this county will'cany the names of a representative ITOPS section of the citixen- ship of this community. Those who recognize the- evils of the fee system, who know ll;u need of conserving public money for public u?c, should make themselves heard in order that the state legislature may not be misled in regard to the desires of the people of Mississippi county on this important issue. I SIDE GLANCES By George Clark This Rating Bill Concerns All Arkansas A Bacfyword Move The.Courier News has been advised that a petition is being circulated asking- for repeal of the Imv under which the county mid circuit court clerks of Mississippi county receive fixed salaries rather than the Ices of their offices. •The taxpayers and citizens of Mississippi county should make vigorous protest Hyainst any such backward move. It is true that'it appears unfair to limit the compensation)of-. cer- • •_ eiW- _-_;r *^- • - - * -f- • ' • • v tain county officers while others, the treasurer and sheriff and collector, rc- ceive all of the fees and commissions of their offices, but the remedy for any such inequality -should be sought through a fair and reasonable salary law for all officers, not through surrendering any of the gains made in the past. The salaries fixed by the present, law are adequate to ;iltracl candidates competent to handle thq work of the offices. That has been true since the salary law was enacted, and it is particularly true at this time. If it should ever fail In he true, in the future the remedy i~ to increase the salaries to \ meet conditions. Certainly now, of all times', is the wrong time lo place any The race ivack sanibllng bill, which has asiiln appealed in tl:c Ic-jis'.nturc, Is in reality mc-cnl lor Gnilaml and CrUtenden counties. And so we are told llial Hie r.'st ul the slnte would not objcci. Tlie tKorilc us a whole must uncompromisingly object It they \\ouM save Ihe pride and stlf-- respect bT tlir stale and if they would save Arkansas fioai a vmdlllon trial mny be comprised to u dtiinu'thc and degenerative physical affliction thai seiirs tipim a human body. Why should Arkansas be asked to i>cniilt race track gambling acrcss ihe river from Memphis for Ihc patronage of Memphis crowds? The Tenni's-'.eo legislature Is hi session. Why dcn't the race irnck gambling Interests gel a bill passed to permit racing In Memphis? Why should Arkansas be looked on as a Mate that lacks the moral liter t'.ial Tennessee possesses? The Mississippi boundary lies close to Mcniplili. Why don'i these interests ask the Mississippi legislature to prnnll race track gambling? Nor can Hot Springs have racing \vlthuul involving the public life and Ihc moral character of the- whole stale. Once let race track interests tel established in Arkansas umior Ihe tmlliovlty of law and u powerful and sinister force would for Ihc future play a large part in our politics find our government-. These interests would exert their Influence in every race for governor. They v.ould always throw their support to llielr chosen man. No mallei how- high (he character of n candidate for governor. no matter how sincerely consecrated he might be to the good of Ihe slate, no mailer how earnestly committed to give Arkansas certain definite, benefits in education or taxation or nuy" oilier field, lie would be ruthlessly sacri- flcM by the race I rack Interests if he refused to bind himself to leave thrm undisturbed. And race track interests nre notoriously as selfish as Ihey tire unscrupulous. •>Not only would race track gambling have n large part in every race tor governor. Iwl tlie Sfunc power would -be felt In every legislature. Thnt- power would be exerted for or n^ahisl other legislation with the single scinsh purpose of saving race track gambling — at any cost lo the best Interests of the slate.

PIKE'S BIRTH On Feb. 5, 1779, Zcbuion Pike, an American soldier and explorer after whom Pike's Peak is named, was born lu Lamberton, N. J.. the son of an army officer.

On Aug. 9, 1805, he slarted j from St. Louis 0:1 an expedition to reach the source of the Mississippi and was successful, returning a year later. He then immediately began t::e exploration of tlie Arkansas river, which he ascended to Pueblo, Colo. After discovering Pike's Peak, he visited the site of the present town of Leadville. He was promoted to the rank of major in 1808, colonel In 1812, and brigadier general In 1813. He died ol wounds received in the expedition in Canada.
