BLTTHEVILLB (ARKJ COUftlfcR NEWS Example in Giving ; Jews in Mississippi County, join- ing'hands with nicmbprs of their race irv all America, h:vye"set an example in fund raising for a laudable cause. They have raised 510,000 in this county to ' be used as part of a fund of ?170,000,000 to meet the needs for refugees in troubled Europe, and in Palestine iii particular. ,,And having reached their own goal, the leaders of the drive in Mississippi County have .extended to other Christians an invitation to join hands in a m'ove to alleviate suffering which has be%i inflicted on them by non-Christian leaders in other lands. The approach by, the Missco campaign leaders is praise-worthy. They are saying to their friends among the de'ntiles of this county that "We have contributed; we have raised our quota. Tjjc need is great, and more funds; can be; used advantageously. Give what you find it in your hearts to give and join us' in the satisfaction that comes from aiding someone else who is in need." r- The cantaign leaders bave indicated tjiat there will be no solicitation by the committee outside members of their ofrii race. Contributions -will be voluntary, and they may be made through tfie Courier News or sent directly to tjje:.leaders, Ike Miller of Blythevillc, Sani-Wyse and Joe Grossman of Joiner.

So, faced with tiiis awful possibility, he did what spme American kids would do. He played hookey. * The summer's study that confronted him was at a private school in the syank seaside resort of Newport, R. i. But it still was school. The home he ran away from was a suite in ;i Park Avenue hotel in New York. Instead of going fishing he plunked §325 and a diplomatic passport on the counter at I«iGuardia Field,and took a plans to 1 Saris. ~ Tlie 35-year-old brother of Iran's Shah certainly did tilings with a flourish of royal extravagance.

VIEWS OF OTHERS Saturday Traffic / Plagued by lack of parking space nnd Central congestion in tratfic, every slr.eabU American city of which we have knowledge Is complaining and at the same time searching for long-range remedies. One of the interesting things is to find so many comnfunlUe", where Saturday morning traffic is described as far and away the worst of tlie week. Certainly downtown Memphis on Saturday morning literally crawls with vehicles. Saturday Is traditionally the day on which people In numerous Southern comniunlltco take bit and go to town. Obviously, too, many people need to do a bit ol extra shopping to tide them over the week end, take care of holiday journey- Ings, and so fort)). Undoubtedly lots of people just enjoy being in the crowds. It has been suggested In several cities up the country thirt. the prevailing operation ol the 40-hour week Is responsible in some measure for the Saturday jams, figures, which we have hot been able to check, arc said to that a. majority of concerns prefer Saturday as one of the regular days off. It is further suggested that careful staggering of days off mlylr, make for a tnorc equal distribution of traffic among the days of the week. The one really encouraging thing about the trafhc situation here and elsewhere is that It has reached such a state as to compel thoughtful consideration and a hunt for every possible means of Improvement. Once the peoplo set their heads toward remedy, things usually come to pass. —WALL, STREET JOURNAL,. Changes and More Changes ,'. A new "Flying White House" Is ready for test flights, says a reporter from Washington. It will replace the "Sacred Cow," which has traveled 430,000 miles since the late President Roosevelt took, to the airways with It for his frequent and far journeys. He was the first of otir presidents, to do much flying. And you may recall how anxioxisly Ills trips wero regarded during the war, when his life meant so much to the nation. But they soon were accepted as commonplace. Great changes have swept Into our lives in recent years. It was only in 1021 that the first presidential voice came over the rndlo— the broadcast of Harding's inaugural message. That was something then. The radio had just graduated from the toy singe to practical use. Inventive wonders have crowded upon us ever since. They have tumbled us out of a quiet old world into a hustling, bustling new one. And still the Invention goes on. An educator says the old tnles of magic aren't read much now. Why should they be?— when we arc living among marvels that would have left the fabled old magicians pop-eyed and grcciv with envy. —ARKANSAS DEMOCHAT.

The situation was a weird one Some people called it (if Puppy won't mind my using his favori'.c , word) obnoxious. Here waa the U. S. Senate faced with a dozen urgent pieces of legislation; unabl'j to budge because of a Political squabble in the Lone Star State. , The poker-faced citizen in the .; gallery was Joe B. Doolcy of Amarillo, lawyer nominated by President Tinman to be a U. S. Dlslrict Judge. . The trouble seemed to be thnt : nobody consulted Pappy, the bitterest anti-New Deal Democrat in the Senate.

Sen. : Tawn of the white hair, the southern accent and the eyeglass on the : black ribbon, said Dooley was a man of high repute and an excellent judicial prospect. Let the Senate vote, he said. On the second d;iy of this argu-, ment. Pappy showed up in a handsomely tailored suit, a spotted necktie, two-tone shoes, and n rub of : bear-grease which made his hair glisten under the skylights. He spotted Doolcy in the gallery announced that he wa s prepared to spend days and, if necessary, weeks to prove that the poker-faced one was obnoxious. Nobody tried to slop T Pappy. i He charged that Dooley was a : lawyer, as he put it. for the /,'.- ehison, the Topeka and the Santa PC. "This appointment is a sinister : ind diabolical plot \'j purge Die junior Senator from Texas (that's Pappy) from Ihc U. S. Senate," Pappy cried. Perhaps cry isn't th c word. Sen O'Daniel got into politics spiel- ' ing on the radio about the flour from his mill. "Pass the Biscuits, Pappy," was his theme song.

When this had gone on for most of the (lay (with an occasional quorum call to let the spoechmaker stretch his legs outside), Pappy strolled down the middle of the aisle .ook: a long look up at Dooley, and ;old of his love for the U.
