Aftei' a' hike-warm and dispirit'mg stall, ll'ic race for governor, at least 1 , has livened up considerably. Bui the heat' that has been engendered certainly' lias not served to drive t'he fog of uncertainty will) ." which the minds of most citizens have been beclouded since the start. No issue lia's been raised to war; rant this newspaper or any other to " say to its icadeis, "Here, under this man's leader&liip, lies tlie way to the - progress and welfare of Arkansas." - The campaign has betfn largely one of - personalities. The choice lies not between candidates committed to one «*" course a;> against candidates eoiunUl- ^ted to an opposite course, but between v'-..rival seekeis aftci the honor and• pow- 3-" er that go with high office and '•>';Ci nio/e especially between contesting — gionps wild hope, through election ol' •— their favorites, to .strengthen their — own political influence and to win for ~- themselves and their friends the "- plums that* fall to successful politicians. f' That being the situation, citixeriH '_ - who have no stake in the campaign ex] cept the stake that evciy resident of ; Arkansas the cause' of 'good - . government, must make up their -• i minds pretty* hugely on the basis of what they know of the character and ' ability of the'opposing candidates. !-'" A simila'ily confusing situation ex- j ists with reb|Sect to the races for a , \ number of other offices. ', It is not a good situation. VVe do , not piadicl th:jt it will .resist in , disaster. We know of no leading can; didat'es for important ofiice wlio conld ! properly bb deseubcd as dangerous. But in an election as imporlanl as this primary the voters certainly ought to have a Letter knowledge of what they are voting for than they will have when they go to the polls to- monow. There is a need for a move intelligent', public spirited, and effcc- ti\e political leadership llian seems to exist in the state at tlie present lime. There is also a need for a run-off or elimination primaiy system, which would serve to i educe confusion. And there is great need for legislation to - place employment in the various state - departments on a met it basis so that the public payioll \\ould no longer be the chief issue in Aikansas politics.

SIDEGIAflCflS By George Cfarfc Failing G()vefiitnenl One of the major '''disclosures" • of the depression has been tlic inability of most local units of government to liandlc their own affairs, notably tlic relief problem. There are 175,000 scpcrale federal, slate, and local governments in the United States, tlic vast majority of which ai'e local. Local taxes absorb nearly two-thirds of the tax dollar. Many conn'lids and municipafilics throughout the country .still operate on the systems of. an ox-cart age, and so 'today,, paradoxically, they arc tax- burdened and income-poor. Sonic of these local units operate without even a budget. All iii all, there seems to be a real heed and opportunity for wholesale re- organisation, if local governments are to mak'e both ends meet.

A survey of the" w ; prtfeYs iri Industrial plaiit iiv Great On trie tenth day oth'er vaeatiori rin suggested to Bill thai they 1mb' the highest' peak, Mt. Ra-; lie. It'was" an all-day trip,'arid as considered a dangerous climb, had to use crampons .and jpes on' the upper reaches of the ouritaln. ; They were all rrioyriirig reacri- ,g the (bot ot the rocky jiprtion _' the climb. They lunched from icir rucksacks at' the last Icaii-to, nd after a sHort rest resumed the rduous work among the prod-' ices. Above therh lay the spiny icak, topped by an ominous black oud—the ridge which led tb it kc the horny ridges ot a dlno- aur's back. Toward 3 o'clock they reached ic summit of the mountain; •here a cold wind from the north 'hipped them mercilessly. It \vSs d strong that they had to cling o the rocks with ttieir liarids, ly- ng down for a view of trie suf- ounding'range's of mountains and ills. The black clouds were low- ring nil about them now. Inter'-' ilttent flashes of liglitning broke ie darkness above them. •' • i 10 minutes at the top ' they started down: Once, vhen the thunder crashed loudly n their ears, Ann drew close to Bill. Her hands shook n little, <md she clxirig to his wrists. It Ve'a'die'd' her. ''Steady!" he .said. "You're fW here than down iri the val- ey," But when she looked (it lilnvshe realized the danger the storm held out to the'rh on the jagged rocks below. They were half way down ;he rocky climb when the storm >roke. In a few seconds Ann was drenched,- arid* Ihe water was pouring' in rivulets from rock to rock. Bilf strove rtia'nfuliy. to keep .ne'rri from .slipping; he braced- iimself viYicrf A'lin was,. dc'sc'end- ing. tht rocky leclges. Tiicrc was DlH ! one thought in' ilieir minds ribw—tb re'a'ph Ihe 1'ean-lo Half- wny d'owii' the mbuht'ain. There- \yas no longer any thought of reaching the vrilley before dark. In {h'a't 1 moment' of danger, slie came lo set Bill 'Ware' for what; lie' rdally was. She had no douot' tliat he \yas In love wilh her. He had tbld' her so, lime and time again. He" liad always bec'ii cpn- fiderit of proving" his love for her. Now lie' was prbving'his love for" her". Perhaps it was merely the" ihsiinct of who wr^iits lo protect the thing that is dear or necessary to him, but to Ann at this time Bill was-like one of those knighis in shining armor. Bill Ware, whom she had seen every week for six' years in a city office. Facing the' hazards of the mountains,- he wa£ like a young sava'geV The winds shrieked anil howled. Tlie ; waters poured over them, soaking Ann to the skin. But before the blackness of the night came down (hey reached the log lean-to, and pushed inside, safe from Ihe wind and rain at last. Tliere was no thought o£ reaching the volley that night. The mountain stream below them was swollen, and its roar reached their ears above the fury of the storm. * * *' AS soon as Bill had caught his ^ breath, he wrapped a. handkerchief over his bleeding hands and Iboke'd about them for something with which lo build a fire. There was" always wood iri the lean-to. Bill found matches and paper, and quickly had the fireplace aglow. lie took off his own boots, to' dry : them; 1 Ann was" wet to the skin. She disrobed in the woodshed and .liaridqd out her clothes to Bill to dry. She donned a pair ot trousers arid ah. old, seedy coat someone ia'd left there, arid came out to help tend the blaze. They both-looked like castaways on the beach when they dined on the remnants ot their rucksack lunches. Ann brewed tea, and the . warm .liquid took away their chill. The interior o£ the lean-to became warm and comfortable, and there was plenty' of fuel to feed the fire all night long! Barefoot, they sat before the burning , logs, and watched the sparks fly up the chimney. There was so much to be said that nothing was said. Bill smoked his pipe and watched tier, not too closely, speaking in hushed monosyllables. Ann leaned back against a bunk and stared at the flames. "H;ippy?" lie said. She nodded her Head sleepily. "Afraid?" . < "Not any more." They looked into the flames, both joyously content with the world,- while (lie elements raged o'ufside. Bill didn't try to tell hei' of His { love. He merely looked after' her comfort, and told her trivial, meaniriglcss incidents in his. life, She liked to hear him talk; Jiis.voice tonight was like a are's's!. At 10' o'clock she crawled into one of the bunks and went fast asleep. Bill sat moodily before the fire, smoking tlie tobacco he had salvaged from the rain. He was a lillle worried about what the gossips at the hotel would f say. It might, have' been - the _ heavy draughts of tea that kept him : awake. But when the storm had abated . and tlie first streaks of dawn blazed over the mountainside, he was still sitting there be- :forc the fire,- watching over Ann. • o' Be Continued) cljust themselves lo noise, sonic |' ess in the presence of unusual !
