Your writer is going to use a wee bit of this precious space to thank the many of you who havd found time to state by letter, 'phone, or verbally, your appreciation of these letters. Upon checking into the letters, 'phone calls, etc., I was amazed ami more than a little frightened by. Ihe great number of people from widely separated areas covered' by this paper, who were interested enough to tell hie.of their Ideas on the various subjects I had covered. No, this Interesl oa your part docs not give me the "big head." I know my shortcomings and realize just how crude some of these djs'co'urjfes must seein to those who can really write. Your interest does convince me of one thing, a thing that I havfe never really doubled. The great majority of every day. American folks, folks like you and me, still believe in and long for America as it was; bur America, the America of our forefathers! We are tired of the .'froth' experimenting with foreign Isms nt our expense, tired of crack-brained opporlunists, tired of inequality and delineation of inherited American rights, tired of Ignorant and inexperienced government interference with American business and with'our private lives, tired of blatant labor leaders punishing the vast majority for the profit ol a few, tired of government pussy-footing; evasiveness and apjieasement of these few treasonable men who should be dealt with by a firm government, a government big enough to see Ihe needs of ALL Americans ahd with courage enough to treat criminal racketeers as criminals regardless of .their power or the name of their brgani- '/.ations. Our prison dells have loo long been a-waillng some of Ihese fellows! - In YOU, my friends, and in you alone lies the hope of future America, .Doh'l fall to pay your Poll Tax! To you who have asked that I write more ofteii: Alas, this space is not free and there is rib one to pay the bill except your humble servant. Not being a wealthy man, I feel very much like the Irishman, Fergus O'Connor, must hove, who said when they sent him oul to slaughter a wild bull with a ixjtato knife, "Ye'll nlver realize how I appreciate the confidence ye show in me!" I do appreciate your kindness as .well as yolir interest. I will greatly appreciate your bringing: ALL your household needs lo our store.

FRITZIUS "Always Something New" SPECIALS THE MAN WAS WRONG; MY DEAR! A few days ago one or our good friends, a lady who misses very fei' of our Saturday Siwcials, told me that, an "up-town" merchant find ex|)lained very fully to her that Fllliilis got a "little" hard to get merchandise and advertised it In order to get customers into his store. I have Jin idea the fellbw's ears are burning yet, for he picked th wrong lady to tfell his "sdtir-grapes" story to. Boy, did she tell him! Brother merchant, cbiild yoii supply the two Blytheville Hospitals with ALL the SHEETS, PILLOW CASES, BATH TOWELS. TURKISH BATH CLOTHS. HUCK TOWELS AND BLANKETS THEY NEEDED? (Better than *3,000.00 worth). Well, we did. \Vu also supplied one of Blytheville's leading hotels with all the sheets, towels, etc., that ttiey needed. On top of this, two Saturdays ago we supplied the people of Blytheville with several hundred Sheets, Pillow Cases, Towels, etc. Last Saturday we supplied them with our Pieldcrest allotment of Sheets. No, we don't make n big noise about tuBthlng. When we advertise aii item it is only when we have a large Quantity, because, believe me, the folks really do come from and wide to Fritzius. There is a reason for this. We NEVER misrepresent oiir merchandise. Another p,< reason could be that competition never has and will never bother Fritzius. I find that if my business is properly conducted it lakes all my time and I don't have time to help run the other fellow's. 1st. This first item is to YOU LADIES WHO KNOW YOUR COOKINO WARE.
