Agreeing To Observe The Law Over in Groove county caixlitliitos foi- the Democratic nomination for various comity offices h.'ivc signed a .solemn pledge which hits been published in the Paragouhl Daily Press. It reads as follows: "Agreement "To Whom It Jliiy Concern: "We the undersigned, as candidates! for (lie olVices opposite our names, hereby pledge ourselves to comply with the pure election l;nv of the Slate of Arkansas, especially as the .same re• latcs to the purchase' of poll lax receipts. All Uie undersigned hereby solemnly agree not to purchase directly or indirectly any poll t«x for any person in Greene cottnty during the campaign." Somehow \vc arc at a loss to understand why it would be necessary for candidates for public office to enter • into an agreement not to attempt to break or evade the pure election laws. The laws are on the statute hooks. Observance of the law should be required of political candidates the same as any other citi/.en. A "gentlemen's" agreement to obey the' law seems su- . perduous unless candidates proceed on the theory that all's fair in "love, war and polities." If so just how binding . would such an agreement be? EnGarde, Kind • : i The little incident of France's duel; ing dramatists came out of Kur'opc like -' the warble of a slightly touched lark _ rising above the of war. How heartening to be reminded that though most of the news from the continent these days concerns man in the mass and figures in the red, the ... French are still being French, ,'md of. fense to the honor of an artist can •; still lead to crossed blades at dawn! :; Well, not at dawn, exactly. The ;; duelists, Messieurs Bourdct and Born.. stein, both overslept and didn't make the field of honor till noon. JL Bom-dot v fought in a black Hombin-g hat, M. ~ Bernstein in a gray fedora. The slaugh- • ter was stopped whim M, ficrnslcin . pinkc;! M. Bourdet in the. arm. All in all, it was a pretty sad affair, as okl-fashioncd ctitling matches ^i> • But as a modern duel between t\vn • niiildie-agcd Frenclinicn, it was perfect. The American scene would he con- OUT OUR WAY sidcrahly brightened if the native authors and artists and musicians employed such means of settling their differences. Our one-punch battle in a night club is drab by comparison. Duels arc much funnier. Symbol nl Work Treaties, agreements, alliances, acknowledged or merely understood,lend to lose their quality of reality in the public mind and become mere cartoon symbols unless they happen to evidence themselves in 'some slarUing, dramatic manner. The other day Paris wanted urgently to communicate; with Prague by telephone. It tried to 'call through two channels. The lirst was transmission Hi rough Germany; tin: second, through Italy. Neither could l>o obtained. German and Kalian telephone officials refused to transmit the call. Contact was finally made by telephoning first through Germany to Warsaw—made possible by international agreement--and then having the call transmute:! to C/echoslovakia. The Italian and German refusals of transmission cut France off from eastern Kurope for a period of hours. That sudden, cn'lcitl/itwl isolation must have brought the Rome-Uerlin axis before the eyes of the French with such a semblance of reality that they must have felt they could almost put out their hands and touch 'it. o/ i'ubllcriUo'n In this column of editorials from other newspapers docs not necessarily mean endorsement but is 1111 acknowledgment or Interest In Hie subjects discussed.
