Experience has shown, however, thtit it ib no pcipeliial motion machine. The response last May, when tlio program got •under way, was excellent. It held up for a time but during the summer icceipU dwindled. Then in the fall a special committee took the master in hand with good results. Now, aftei neaily two months of virtually inactivity, scrip is again to be revived. We have no doubt thai Hie public i espouse will be good. It is not that the people oC Blytlicvillc do not rcc- ojrm/e the »ee<! of ;i local'relief fund, which is gio.ittu than ever now Unit the feduial piogiam has been curtailed, tint tiic scup program has lagged. Nor ib it that the people of this city aie unwilling to co-operate to the extent (hat the scrip program asks. It is> simply that it is a little easier not to use sciip than to use it. With the constant icimmler which organiml effoit piovides we use it. Without it we grow* careless. The scrip fund treasury is now all but empty How badly does it need money' Well, for -example, there are in BIythevillc several score of persons, most of them,.elderly, who; are physical!) .incapable of earning, a living and who have no one to support them. They aie not eligible lor PERA as- Sibtante. , The scrip fund is ;thcir only hope. Attending one of. our public schools aie mote than fifty children, most of them mcmboib oi families now on relief, who fcctttom have a noon lunch. The FERA, after some delay, has ap- piovfid a project, for serving them nourishing hot lunches, provided the comnuimtj will supply the materials with which to, prepare them. The amount of money needed is not large, but it is not available and will not be until the scup fund hits been rc- plenibhul It is toi things like these, a s well as foi suppl) ing materials to keep work relief men on the FEHA payroll, that the scrip fund is needed. From both humamfaiian and practical standpoints it mciits the co-operation of all of us. OUT OUR WAY BLYTHEVILLE, (ABK.) COURIER NEWS In tht Background An 82.ycar.oM ox-diodt-enri-ier has wo» Uio annmil award of the Denver Arlists' Guild for the outstanding painting of' the year; and thereby seems to hang n little human interest storjf which doubtless has had its counterparts among artists of all times and places. For (he concluding paragraph of the announcement of this man's triumph remarked that his wife has taken in washing for the last eight years .so that her husband could paint. in allocating the credit for this man's artistic success, then, it i s pretty obvious that a goodly share ought lo go to his wife. And that is (|uite frequently the case with the wife of an artist. She never gets any particular acclaim for her husband's achievements; but in many, many cases .-he makes Jm success possible by so lightening his ordinary cares ami responsibilities that he is able lo devote himself to his art. How Students Fee/ A cross-section of opinion on the issues of war and peace has been obtained from American college and'uni- versity campuses by the Literary Di- gest—u-liost! editors apparently are not happy unless they are polling somebody about something—and the results we iiiferestiijg. 01' the 112,007 students polled, SHI per cent favored government (.'ontrol of munitions manufacture; OO.G pel- cent opposed American entrance in the League of Nations; two-thirds expressed belief that America can stay out of the next great war; and 83 per cent said they would willingly defend the country in case of invasion. It would be interesting to know how closely this rellecls the .sentiment of the country as a whole. Offhand, one might suggest that it is not very far from, it. U's a fair bet thai the average t-iti- Kcn distrusts the munition makers and the league/feels that his country ought to keep out of the next war,'and is ready to do his' bit if anyone else starts anything. I am perfectly satislled with thu ivuy our monetary policy has worked oul in the last year and I sec no occasion to change it. -Henry MorgciHhnii. Jr., secretary of Treasury. * » * •We are going to honeymoon in India, not because we're afraid of gangsters or kidnapers, but we want to escape reporters. —Mrs. Doris Duke Crumwcll.
