Lee Wilson was by wide odds the biggest mini in Mississippi county. '** It Is probable that his place will never Ix; filled, for he was a rare product of an environment that lias changed. Men of his force and ability can still achieve big things, but it is doubtful if they can dominate their communities a* for yfcars Lee Wilson dominated his. Mr. Wilson's career was, the perfect example of individual achievement. His heritage was s keen mind, an indomitable spirit, nnd unflagging energy. With it he won wealth fine 1 , power and built civilization out of a wilderness. His character did not always inspire tho love of lessor men. Many among us have described him as ruthless and selfish. • To those who stood in his way lie was ruthless, but his selfishness, if it may be so called, was of no narrow personal kind, but rather Hint of a man who finds his satisfaction in life in constructive accomplishment. For, individualist that he was, there was nothing anti-social in the fundamental character and purpose of Lee . Wilson. His faring, the towns arojvmd which they lie, his contributions lo education, both 'practical and cultural, all are living refutations of the allegation that he lived and planned and worked x for Lee Wilson alone. Mississippi county's dob*, to Mr. Wilson is not easily expres.;t'.! in a few words. He was the leader and usually the controlling force in projects that for a period of years literally remade this county. His. above nil others, was the vision and his the will that built the levees, the drainage ditches, the railroads and the highways that '. made possible the Mississippi county 1 we know today. But that does not . begin to tell tho story. In industry, ; in banking, in the introduction of mod: : ern agricultural methods, in the improvement of health aivl living standards, and in education his influence has been tremendous. Yv'hat w u would have been had he never livr.d no man ; can say, but what he accomplished in a long and active career is here for everyone to see. There will alv.-ays be opportunity for the Individualist. —Henry Ford. JUT OUK WAY Comic Persons with democratic tenancies Eon)et|mes wojidcr : just why England continues to Kupport the luxury of v. pttragc. Now and then some Individualistic !n,cmbcr of the pceniifc will unwillingly' furnish the answer— or, at any rale, an «n.<wer. .There is, for instance, the Duke of Devonshire, who made a Illllc »f>eeeli ut a horHe show in Derbyshire Ihe oilier day, in Ihc course of which lie unleashed a dic-lu'.rd old Tory's dislike of the ajjc of modern inventions. Thc auto was the chief object of his attack; he called Htilo.s "foul, stinking, things" and "horrible brutes making life hideous," and ne added: "When I lirst knew this horse show we came here as gentlemen, ami not as crashing cudu." And there you have it It must be almost worth while for a nation to support a system whic'i produces old gentlemen who can make speeches like that. BLYTHKVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Others May Follow One way of gelling a line on the things our government is doing these days is to find out how they look Lo jieople in other land;. II is rather instructive to note that the Trades and Labor Congress of Canada, for instance, has unanimously indorsed the NIIA program, in the United States and has urged the adoption of :i similar plan for Canada. A few days before this happened, the Trades Union Congress of England passed a resolution calling upon tho British government to adopt similar measures. The South African Parliament is considering its own NRA plan. The, NRA, of course, is not a cure- all, and it lias handed us some problems which will probably keep up busy for a long time. But foreigners find « that it is a program of vast promise, and they would like to copy it themselves.' The fact speaks v.o!uii\cjj.

Institute in Paris, workins also with many luintir:ds of mice, supports thc conclusions of Dr. Slye to the effect that there is a constitutional and probably hereditary factor in tlie cause of cancer. These investigators cannot bo certain howevrr. whether or not cancer is hereditary as a dominant or a recessive trait.
