' Jt means more than just health protector) foi a certain amount of happiness will attach to the fact thnl no .longer v»ill there be any semblance of an excuse for burning garbage in tlie back yard, 01 in the alley, ajong with waste paper and other rubbish which should be burned. Burning garbage . y becomes obnoxious for thei dfwensHoT persons who mubt smell the" si^zlfpgi'3 tea mini?, spoiled refuse from sorrfe'neighbor's kitchen. The ordinance setting up the municipal garbage department for Hlythc- ville requues that the garbage .shall be placed by the householder in tightly covcied containers and placed con- venibi'tlj for the garbage collectors who vsill visit the residence section each week, and the business section each week day. Modern equipment has been provided for hauling the garbage—equipment which is a far cry from the horse and -\\agoh days when garbage was damped into an open barrel hauled in a. slow-moving vehicle. Blythc\ ille's two new garbage trucks are equipped with u hydraulic devic.6 which quickly dumps the garbage into an air-tight and water-tight truck bed. Use of the -trucks will bring better health, more happiness and greater satisfaction for Blytheville folk, pro- \idedthere is 100 per cent co-operation J with the city authorities in every rt&ghborhocKi. Two things are required in every household, and each is essential to vhe success of this new and iieedcd service. One ot the essentials is that house• holders obtain and use tightly covered garbage cans. The other essential is prompt payment of fees imposed by 1 the City Council to provide funds to j finance the new Service. These fees— 75 cents monthly for each household— 1 are payable in the city clerk's office. The city in this move to minimize health hazards faces a new problem in that it must stop the practice of "un- official" garbage collectors roaming the alleys and taking what they want and leaving the rest scattered on the ground. Continuation of the "unofficial" collections can nullify nil of the ifooil which might be expected of an otherwise efficient municipal colk'ttion service. Mayor Jackson and other city officials are to be commended for providing this new service. In making it possible, they also took upon themselves a new responsibility—-that of enforcing the regulations in the case of the few who are to be found in uny city who may fail to pay the required fees, or fail to handle their garbage in the required manner thus nullifying the health protective steps which have been taken by their neighbors. Tho ordinance is a good one, but noncompliance on the part of the public, plus iion-cnforcement on the part of the city could make it just another drain on the taxpayers' purse. H will cost just as much to collect the garbage from 95 per cent, of the homes us it will cost to make it 100 per cent, and it must be that to provide the health protection so essential if modern cities are to be really modern. And MayYou Alwaysj^ave Snnooth Sailing Really Unpopular Profession Earl Browder, former head of the American Communist Party, was held up in London on the way homo from Moscow, where he had made arrangements to represent! Soviet publishers iii this country. In fact, he was detained under guard in a police barracks until his plane was due to leave. This, we suspect, is only a taste of what's coming. Mr. Browder may have thought at times that he was unpopular as a Communist. But wait till he tries to win friends and influence people as a book agent! * IN HOLLYWOOD By EKSKIN'E JOHNSON NEA Staff Coiicspondent HOLLYWOOD.

Is celebrating his 14th year as the stt.r of "Tobacco Road"—that's 3450 performances—and a lot of turnips. But John Barton is celebrating' some other things thes days.

BEING "MOTHEKEU" IS CHEAT "We have been happy for 50 years," John told us, "because Bile's older than I am. She has always mothered me." John had a confession to make. "I'v e probably played one role longer than any other actor, but I've never seen an audience." John can't see beyond the foot- ghts when he is not wearing his lasses. Anil the role of Jecter Kirs his spectacles. "One afternoon at a matinee," 3 chuckled, "I didn't think there vas anyone in the audience. I couldn't hear a sound during the first act at all, "Finally, at the beginning 0 { the second set, someone coughed I said to myself: 'Well, at li'ftsi there's one person In the audience." FORGOT HIS LINES ONCE We wondered, like everyone else, If John had ever forgotten his lines. "Only once " he saifl, "and that wasn't on the stage. I was at a night club, and they asked me to give that speech Jecter makes while sitting on his rroiu porch.
