Balancing the. Forces Toioaid Recovery Frances Perkins tells Lhe New York Merchants' A'sociallon Dial tli« NKA provides "a good tcchniiitie for linl- ance" among litianco, industry, agriculture, and labor, and Hint, she adds, is perhaps most! siKiiilicimt fact in the whole recovery program. This remark, while it says nothing that hns not been said before, nevertheless helps to clear up one of the, most common reasons for criticism of NRA activity. •t Getting n proper balance among the forces mentioned by JMisu Perkins simply means fixing thing.} so timi, each shall get its fair share o£ whatever degree of prosperity happens to be avail- .- iible, and devising a nierhod whereby 116, - one group ean throw the wliolu works oiil of line by taking a greater profit proportionately than the economic-., set-lip can stand. ., - • » • Now the getting of puch a balance might not necessarily, of ib'clC, restore ,full prosperity.' What it would do would make it certain that such prosperity, when it did return, would be a self-aceclerating thing, that it would be. distributed evenly, and that it would not, as in the past, crcaic the contradictions that lead to now depressions. The NRA framework, m other words, is not so much a measure to restore prosperity as a conduit 'hrotigh which returning prosperity can How more smoothly and rapidly; .It as well that we. klip that fact in mind. Otherwise we are apt to gaze about us, see that the depression, is lingering, and conclude thai the NKA is worthless and should be .junked. * * » Restoration of good business, as Miss Perkins points out, depends on the in-' terlocking of a number of factors. The NRA is one of them, the Agricultural Adjustment Act is another, the public works program is another, the present manipulation cf the currency seems to be still another. And Miss Perkins properly warns us: '•Restoration will be a comparatively slow process, with possible checks from time to time. No great, co-operative effort such as this has ever been carried ,to a successful conclusion without some setbacks." We can stand the setbacks, so long A Good Record The Hlylhuvillc Chamber of Com- niercu IIHS been operating this year on an extremely restricted budget. It has cost tlie business people of the city less than over before, and possibly for thai reason it is felt by some that it lias Ijcin inactive. II is true that it lias not had the money to publish the twmphlets and other literature that formerly kept tho community conscious of chamber of commerce activity, but that does not mean that it has not been fjn the job, Officers of the National Drainage association will confirm the statement tliaL the niylhevillc Chamber of Commerce, more than any civic organ hn- tion in a community in any way comparable to Ulythevillo, contributed to the enactment of federal drainage relief legislation that promises to save . 5(5,000,000 to this county. To anyone who wants to knmv what Rood the chamber of commerce has done that nlonc should be answer enough. But il is by no means all. • v Here tire a few other activities of the organization, in some'of which it was successful and in others of which it failed, -but in all of which it was . workijtg for the good of the community: . , 'Had a substantial part in cotton re- 1 (luction campaign which brought ap- prbximulcly §1,500,000.00 to Mississippi county in direct benefit payments and guuranlced ;\ fair price for the crop of 1933.

In this, type of cases, the so- called mouth antiseptics will not cmc the condition, so it's not worth the expense and trouble of trying them.

When the mouth has been infected by tlie parasite of trench mouth, it is exceedingly difficult to bring about a cure. To produce satisfactory results in such cases, it is necessary first of all up the general hygiene of the patient and next to attack the organism through the body generally. Moreover, It may be necessary to have a 'dentist or a physician swab the infected areas tegularly with antiseptics of sufficient strength to kill the parasites.

Not that Bannister, himself .'Considered It 1m- rxjrtant i Probably Mrs. Kennebec bad exaggerated the whole thing, as wamen are likely to do who hare little to occupy their time except gossip. On the other hand, Bannister reasoned, the story mlgbl have its mportanr.o. It helped to piece together the background of Tracy King's life during the past tew days. Pi-actlcal detectives, he knew, ftl\v;iya tried to do .that. They considered every detail, almost as though they were fingering pieces ot a jigsaw puzzle, then went to work, fitting the details together. Bannister felt rather proud ot himself.: He had something with which ho could go to Captain McNeil now and say, "Here's a tip 1 picked up that may lie worth looking Into—" The photograph in his pocket, on the other hand, wasn't worth mentioning. Ho'd keep that to himself, i, Bannister was thinking ot McNeal and the tip he had to offer him when another thought Interrupted. It had been a tip for Me- Neal that hid sent Bannister walking down town that morning, tho plaguey question whether or not to tell the detectire about the girl in the taxicab. Bannister smiled wrily. Well, she had been a slick one and he had fallen completely for her guile! Ho had fallen en completely that, looking about Tracy King's rooms an hour or so earlier, he had actually searched for the memorandum sbe had said she lost there. What nonsense! As though he didn't know every word she had spoken was false!

Neither, so far as he tould see, resembled Tracy King.... He did'not know wliy he had put the photograph in his pocket ccpt that he wanted to study It further and Link's coming had prevented that. He looked at tha bottom of the card and read. "Swann Studio," In flowing gilt script. Below in smaller ' letters was the narao of a town h« had never heard . ot. located In another state. For seieral moments Bannister looked at the two faces. Tucn ho gave it up. Thero was certainly nothing In that old photograph to give him any Information about Tracy King'* murder. Nothing whatever.
