The Ordin ance Not only the milk dealers, bill the consuming public as' well, should insist that the city dllicr enforce or icpeal the sliimlnrd milk ordimincc, winch foi a number oi' years IKIK been a source of much talk and HUlc action. The ordinance, designed to insuru Consumers milk of known purity and quality, contains plenty of teeth. The trouble is they are not used. AH a icsult bottle cap labels setting' forth the pui'ijoilcd quality of milk sold in Blythevillc are meaningless, which is fair neither lo the distributor who inakes ah honest effort. to abide by the • sanitary .tnul other requirements of the oulinanre nor lo the cwisiimur, who has no assurance thai* the "Grade A" millv uliicli he pny« for is itcltially of that ([inility. Production Goes Up Undctiieatli nil the n'liicli-ilisciissutl subdivision of I he recovery prograui, there swinslo be a slow but dulinilo tide which is moving lowaixl prosper- ily. Thus, the U. S. Chamber of Commence ipports tliat industrial production al Hie end of 1034 was 25 per cent above the low [mint of 1932, and ~'/ thai 1,300,000 more wage earners were on the payrolls) of manufacturing plants than the, casV.; two .years ago.' The noi mill seasonal recession lo bo expect pel in - January did not appear, coal was moving by : . rail at a greater volume limn in any January since 1031, and Ihq use of electric power was steadily climbing. Whether our recovery is coming because of 01 in spite of Die administration's clYoils may still be a moot point. The impoitnnl tact is that it does, delmittly, seem to be under way. Storms Raging on the Sun If those scientists who see a direct connection between simspots and earthly climatic conditions are cor- lect, wo may well be in for a period of veiy distill bed and unusual weather. Geiman a.shonomcrs report a sudden and surpiising development of new sunspots—the .largest seen since 1917. 8LyttncVlLLE, (At*. One group of spots developed from UoUiiiig to ail arcii ten times the size of Die earth in 48 hours, swirling and rotating' in n manner lo suggest a "storm" of almost unimaginable vio- luicc on (he sun's flaming surface, What this may menu for carlhly weather is something for the scientists to argue about—and for experience lo show. For the ordinary reader, meanwhile, there is something exceedingly fascinating about the thought of these tilanie disturbances — unimaginably vasl cyclones in flaming gns—taking place far off in space, with a few as, tronomei's at telescopes as the only spectators. Dr. Townsencl Crawfishes Dr. Townscml lias deferred Ihc millennium for two years, "in testimony before tlic House Ways and Means Committee, lie said u W0 uld be Impossible lo begin paying $200 u month lo all over 60 Immediately, nn<l fixed the lime It would rcqulr« lo register all Hie cligiblcs ftt ' two years, - Ho suggested the plan at ilrsl be limited to nil persons over 75.

The Economics of Legalized Pari-muluel Betting My humble opinion Is thai, the bill (legal- ising pnrl-miituel belling.'on horse races in Arkansas) will nol stand the test, of time, and eventually, be repealed...not Inter . limn two years hence.* , I don't think the filtration of momls will enter Into it.' -It will become an economic Issue, and the. revenue obtained will not 'be sufllclcnlly at- Irnclh'e to 1,-nvtimkcrs In resist the demand for repeal that Is bound to come from the business men of Arkansas. * * » liig will redound to Ihc benefit of Hoi'springs ing will rcboiind to the benefit of Hot Springs ...but Hot Springs alone. I «m speaking; of financial benefits. Hot Springs really 'has no public, standard »r morals. Being a resort of national and International patronage it couldn't have. But horse racing in Hot Springs Is • bound to tap the buying power of the rest of the state. It Is bound to attract n steady now of money from otlicr parts ot the state. It Is bound to check the circulation of money, to a certain such an extent that It-will be felt by business men in other sections of Arkansas. Tills Is not an attempted argument, for or against legalised belting on horse races. It Is merely a prediction. -Waller Sorrclls, Jr., In Pine Dltil'r Commercial.
