Water Company Purchase Seems the Only Answer That there is some optwsition to purchase by the city of Blytheivlle Water Company is fairly well known. The implications of government ownership have been decried by Rome, and socialistic connotations of such action pointed out. "Politics," however, is the commonest cry. Some opponents of th^ proposed purchase felt that sooner or later, operation of the water company would fall into unscrupulous hands. City officials of this and other administrations have said Hie only reason they wanted to obtain the water company was to provide financing for improvement of the city's worn-out sewer system. They save aaict that basically they do not favor entry of the city into business, but that there is no other answer to the sewer problem. A bond issue that would inflict another property lien on real estate here would never go over. Mayor Dan Blodgett reiterated this when he spolje to the Kiwanis Chib Wednesday. Opponents of the proposed purchase have said nothing publicaUy, much less offered any alternatives. This newspaper also is basically opposed to government in business, but also fcela that: 1. There is a vast difference between a municipality and the federal or state government in such a case, especially in regard to ultimate control by kh« voters; and 2. If there is any alternative solution that is feasible and would result In construction of a new sewer system, now is the lime for it to he brought forward. If none is forthcoming, even opponents of the water company acquisition plan may have to agree with Mayor Blodgett that the utility purchase i» the only solution to the sewer problem. to government demiuirti »o they could get defense funds. But all these have their limits. It la a serious question whether tuition? can be boosted much higher without print)jr many students right out of the education market. All too many studenls cannot make the financial grade today without some kind of Assistance. Some of the scholarship drives have heeu rewarding, but some have not. Many of the smaller schools simply are not eciuippecl to lake on Naval or Army scientific research. Where do they go from here? With a lot of schools it now is or soon will Vie a matter of finding new revunue sources or shutting down. There arc only two large reservoirs to which they may turn, government or business. Riisiiiess already firianccs much college research through grants for specific projects, scholarships, and the like. But it has barely scratched the surface. It could well become a principal support of the nation's college system. Some of this aid would l>e immediately productive of returns to industry through developments of now scientific solutions lo problems, through large additions to the tyice of highly trained personnel, and so on. The alternative, plainly, is government help. Many educators believe lhat even if other segments of society can carry the biggest part of the load there IK still some place for government. For instance, a carefully applied system of federal scholarships to assist needy students would give the schools a boost without menacing their independence. Yet more thoughtful school administrators fear too much government in education. They sec school independence, and perhaps free scholarship, ultimately disappearing under such conditions. No one can say there is no point to their fear. It is time for all forward - looking business leaders to attend to this great necessity—and opportunity. !f they do not move inlo the crisis with firm purpose, the government most certainly will.

Seizures by President Lincoln' were upheld by the Supreme Court nnd Inter confirmed by act of Congress, said Baldridge. President Roosevelt used the seizure power 13 times, and no way was ever found to stop him.
