What Length Franchise? In granting a new bus franchise: : fov Blytheville, the city officials should do more than give consideration to making the award to an opcrati'iii; firm which will provide service lo nil sec- tion's' of the city. They should see to it tlmt the nr- rarigement is fair to the city and at the same time permt the operator lu make a reasonable return on his investment in equipment and the petTon- • nel needed to provide dependable service. Tlje length of the franchise is important. Perhaps it is of greater importance to the holder of the franchise than it. is to the city that grants it, but the . mere fact that a franchise extends , over a long period makes it more valuable to the firm which gets the new contract- The fact that ,1 long contract is more valuable to the operator should make it possible for the city to get a better contract. Ten years, the life of the present i franchise which expires this Suwmer, is a ,sliort time. In .fact, few franchise;! will be found in any city for So short a period, Some franchises run for !>9 years and in between the two .Blytho- ville should find a medium which will he advantag-eous for all concerned it every factor is given careful consideration, and it is reasonable to assume that each and every factor will bo considered. Beyond the Marsha I! Speech The short speech by Secretary of .; State Marshall before the Women's National Press Club was a masterful ex- postipn of traditional American policy toward the world. Mr. Marshall was not speaking primarily of current attiU.des. He was not primarily defending his ' Policies or those of the present administration, or any particular administration. Rather he was defending principles winch have guided the thinking of a majority of Americans in world affairs He gave Americans reason to be proud of their national decency at n time when they have a tendency to b> cynical or overly self-critical" about" their world position, or petulant because their aid to Europe i s not sufficientlv appreciated. The Secretary of State's address was an honest and .stirring answer to he' Soviet prop ^ , a mach . ic ". the t w 6 American c «'»munist s to Henry Wallace. As such it de- > on W , Jation. We hope it gets il But after that, what? Mr . Marshall " d as they essentially arc . w d not th»k that his statements can e s«no«ly ch,lten«d Neither, how ? ever, do we thank that his answer will quiet anti-American propaganda We dn not think It will stop Soviet expansion We are doubtful that it will sj |e, lco Ma Wallace's charges of "imperialism" against a government that will not condone that expansion. 1 r J^ Sf* 4 " Cited the d ^obiiiz a - tion of the greatest concentration O f milSUry power that the world has ever aeen" aa a prool' of America's peaceful Jnt«itfcms. He cited the withdrawal of our troops from overseas as proof that charges of American imperialism are ''fantastic misrepresentation" n ml "malicious dislocation of Ihu truth." We are sure that the former Chief of Staff does not approve of this country's disarming to the point, of impotence. Perhaps lie did not briii(r up the subject of an-adequate national defense because he probably feit thnt it ia outside his province to urge it now. Or perhaps he fell that another such appeal would have so little chance of success that it was a waste ol' lime lo make it. ' There is ample reason for Ihe pessimism of tin's second conclusion.) The control of atomic energy became a political football for months while other nations undoubtedly hurried to catch up with llii.s country's atomic- progress. Co-ordination of the armed force-; was kicked around more than two yeans, largely because of Navy opposition. Universal military training is a dead duck for tin's session of Congress, at least. So here is America, disarmed and disarming, certainly lagging in aircraft development ami shipbuilding, possibly lagging in scientific development. The mistakes which resulted in two previous crises are not only being repeated, but intensified. Wo are, as Mr. Marshall said, a sympathetic, generous, peace-loving nation. The moral indignation of most Americans is aroused by the spread of freedom-killing dictator ship in Europe. Kill our moral force will be los't if we weaken our physical strength lo a point where only the voice of protest remains. That is not militarism or i m - pcvialism. That, we believe, is common sense.

(UP} — Vou ladies noticed any slash lately in the prlco of a can of peas? I thought so. Sp today's our day to shed a tear for the buys who find tlieni- .W.VPS with 67.000.OCO aises of canned vegetables (,-liey can't sell, a new croj) coming up. and nobody standing in line to buy. There seems to be only one solution. Get the government to do something, so tho rppnMcntatiws of the runners, the cunners mid the wholesale grocers came to the Agriculture Committee ol the House. /The relief experts so far have refused to send the -Mimed eoods lo Europe's hungry. They claim a. can of tomatoes, for instance, is mo.itly water and whv spend 'lito money to ship H2O abroad? The canned goods fellows said the Europeans need vitamins from tinned vegetables as much as calories from wheat. They said also that if the government doesn't lake over some of the millions of cases, many' a farmer will KO bust (and many a cannery too) and that'll be the- start of a depression. Rep. August H. Andre-son of Minn., wondered if any of the boys had thought about cutting prices of peas ('which seem to be in greatest surplus) here at home. ''Oh. yes." replied William M. D Miller, secretary of the Cooperative Food Distributors of America. Chicago, a typical witness. 'Prices h>ve been reduced But the people insist on the fancy stuff and thev won't buy u, e standard grades'." This caused Rep. William S. Hill o! Colo, to exp'ode. Or perhaps "erupt" is the better word. "I'd like to see the ads on those reduced prices," he shouted "So my wife can get 'em. HOW do you figure the cost of living is goinf; up, if the price of these foods h going down?" D'Miller tried to soothe him. Hep Hill was having none of it He charged ttat' grocers advertised low prices on canned goods but always were fresh out when Mrs Hill tried to buy. "And it isn't only canned goods." he said. "Why, one store advertised lamb at 15 .cents a pound and when I vent into get some I had to pay 65 cents n pound for The suave D'Miller, wearinf a cheeked suit, a large dianraul ring, and heavy-rimmed eyeglases said he ,\va.s sorry but lie didn't know (jbout meat. Only canned goods. And the warehouses in his association have so many cans of peas, string beans, cut heels, sauerkraut and sweet potatoes on hand they intend to buy no more tor tho next eight to 14 months. Rep. Andreseii wasn't convinced. He ordered D'Miller to produce a list of current retail prices of canned scods for study bv Hie lawmakers. Tjie witnesses " kept com- hi!f.. A thousand acres of string beans 'have been plowed under in Louisiana because the eanners wouldn't buy. Spimch is rotting in the .Norfolk, Va., area, and tomatoes in Maryland. "Tomatoes are being plowed into the gioimd right now,' 1 said Dr. T. -B. Symons. director of the Extension Service of the University of Maryland. "But I paid 35 cents u, pound for Maryland tomatoes only last week, protested Rep. Andrcsen. "Ah yes," replied Dr. Symons. "Lovely tomatoes, from our Maryland Jiot houses. But He'd tomatoes, no. There is no market for them." This was hard for Rep. Andresen to understand. He could use a, few pounds. And so could I, if we could afford 'em, that is.
