Not Impulsive Certainly n« one can accuse Mayor Tom A. Little of rash, impulsive action in cutting off garbage pick-up service to those homes and places of business outside the city limits. We fault him only for inking a year to get around to it, It's another example of Nice Guyism in public office, , .wo feel sometimes the nice guys hurt I ha public fisc. Aside from this delay, any person paying taxes in the city must applaud the Mayor's action in regard lo establishing new respect for the city limits and also in connection with his views on zoning and planning. Admitting that he'd much rather see property owners petition for annexation, Mayor Little nevertheless staled that he will, if necessary, urge th« city lo *et unilaterally in bringing in these peripheral developments. He especially wants to place the industrial park in the corporate limits and this seems to make great good sense. This refreshingly aggressive attitude of the mayor's is tempered by his vise concern for proper planning. He told the Courier News that he wants to consult with City Planner Donald Manes before drafting an annexation program. Mr. Manes' thoughts on tha subject will be most interesting. We look forward to learning of them and commend Mayor Little for reminding all of us (hat the city now has a planning consultant and will make use of him. Best Wishes to... This week, the best wishes of many Ai'knnsans go out to: LT. GOV. MAURICE BRITT, a hero's hero who underwent surgery for removal of a tumor which has been pronounced benign and thank God for that. - SEN. JOHN L. JMcCLELLAN, who this week completed 25 years In the United States Senate and whose endearing and worthwhile qualities in public office include dedication and hard work, neither of which is dimming with approach of the Senator's 72nd birthday (next month).

' It was, he reports, painted red, white and blue and looked patriotic as Ihe very devil. Painted on the back were these words: '"I'm your Navy recruiter and I have some good advice for you." Underneath this message was the word: "Dodge." •* •* + Another fellow, once, a central Arkansas agent, but now working this corner of the state, tells of when two overweight types in Little Rock concluded lhal the way lo lose weight was through the pocket hook. The bel: $10 the pound. You lose five pounds and I lose three, then I owe you $20. Trouble was. one fellow threw himselt into the thing and lost more than 20 pounds while the other was losing nothing. During Ihe final week, Ihe loser dehydrated and lost much weight while. I ho winner coasted back into a bit of fal. The final score however still amounted to more than $150, which the loser didn't have.

He figures he missed one of Blytheville's classic news photographs. Fire Chief Roy Head was standing at the door of the burning home when something inside exploded. The doot buckled outward in Head's face, "and almost smashed his cigar," Herb says. Head then looked inside and subsequently disappeared into the smoking house. He came back through the doorway a minute Sater holding a terrified, burned little dog in his hands.

South's jump to j that spot was rather optimistic,! but you are there and hare lo ! do tiie best you can. The early play is easy enough. You take dummy's ace of clubs, lead a spade to yor.r king and a second spade back to dummy's queen, as both opponents follow. Then you cash dummy's ace and king of diamonds. East drops tiie jack of diamonds on the king and the problem has developed. We will help you out a trifle. The game was being played at the University of Michigan, and college students are perfectly capable of playing the jack while still holding another card in Uie suit. We don't consider this any sign of moral decadence in the younger generation. In this spot the falsecard with the jack is automatically the correct play with just one more diamond left in your hand, and college students know the correct plays. If the jack play is a falsecard you make *e hand by drawing the last trump and discarding all your clubs on the last four diamonds.
