Livestock Metl Caii Point With Pride, if any other normal Arkansas Industry had made such, growth us our livestock Industry has, It iVoulrV bo' « subject of astonished, shiny-eyed talk on every street corner. The farm income from our herds and flocks last year, put, at 63 million dollars by the University 'Of Arkansas school of business administration,-was I'lO per cent, higher than in the boom year'of 1.929. True, war prices accounted for some nf that gain. But the entire Incoimvof the State's people, shoved up by munition plants, Army campf and the feverish demand for our various raw materials, was only 43 per cent higher than In 1929. V".' ' '•' '';"• ' '"'"," "'•* "Nor Is'thai' all of the amazing story of our liveslbck development. Besides the aS-mlillon-'.loilars income to Arkansas farmers, livestock has added millions of dollars more to the Stale's annual Influx of cash with the handling and processing Industries it ' has brought, to scores of out 1 cities. Large stockyards are operating in North Little Rock, Phie Blurt and Ft. Smith, with many smaller ones elsewhere. Scatletcd numerously oVer the slate are miller aiitl cheese factories, small packing plants and qilick-ficezing establishments. ' Recently, under the stimulus of war, new types 6[ livestock processing industries have coine to' Arkansas—plants to dry niid condense milk and 16 dry eggs. These have a fat brighter prospect of continuing when tlic war ends thai) oiir munition factories have. • The toad U wide open to livestock expansion. It haS a vast, assured market; which the chemist does not threaten as he does cotton with his synthetic fabrics'. feo it is jjratityini; that Governor Adkins lias signed a bill appropriating $idO,OOD for buildings for the state Livestock Shaw. This Institution has proved its value In encouraging more and better herds and flocks. Trie money will come from bauxite inincd on die 6onfc'Jcrntc Home. Some day our bauxite Will be gone, and when it is it canntit he replaced, But livestock is an Industry as lasting as the kindly earth. Probably show buildings cannot tx> erected till war restrictions pass. Meanwhile, livestock producers should extend their organization and make a greater show one of their major goals. Thev can thus bring to the show the wide support It needs, and minimize the political innuendo »hlch Is apt to creep in with State appropriations. -Arkansas Democrat. End Unfafr freight Rates. The Soitlli, Southwest nnd certain pails of the West have been suffering for many years from the cITeels'of Ihc ImiMslllon of unfair and discriminatory freight rates. They have been complaining nil lliose years, and for the last few years have been fighting inore and more vigor- busly for Justice. Things have now come to such a pass that the governors of several Southern stales arc urging dli'ccl piilittcnl rtcllon unless Iho present Administration moves certainly and .swiftly lo end discriminations. The Commercial Appeal believes the lime Is ripe to Implement dissatisfaction politically, for sill other methods have failed, the Injustice is perpetuated through political cons, nnd Congress has a direct recommendation from n tody of its own creiUion Mint uniform rates should lie bUiibllshcd oh u liallon- widc basis. Congress jmssed the Transliortnllon Acl of 1D40 with a View tb obtaining nn end of unfair might charges. U authorized the Interstate Colnmerce Commission lo make corrections, but the ICC merely started ah investigation that Is still In progress uiu'l slioi's no -signs of ever end- lili;. Congress also set up -the Hoard of Investigation and riesnirch, which has studied the question from all jinnies, nnd, by a two to one vote, recommended lo Congress the manner in which these unfair differentials can and should 'be removed. Recurrent .studies by the Tennessee Valley Authority have also made out a VerJ: strong eiisc for the Immediate removal of discriminations anainst the South and West. In Inlet, Ihe case of the South anil West has never been so aulhoritalively tacked as It Ls loday. The Commercial Appeal urges that all available agencies, public and private, renew their demands for justice In freight rates. The existence of dlKcrimlnatlun in rates is a direct drag oil the progress of (he great, sections In question, it handicaps industry, holds wages dowh, lire- vents development all up and clown the line, If It does that, of course, it is im evil thing fttf the entire Nation, no matter what undeserved benefits it mEiy confer on special interests. The im- balance'In wartime works even greater hardships nnd impost's otherwise nnnece.ssai'y restrictions on the prosecution of the war. if It is allowed io persisl, it will hamstring the postwar period nl reorganization In n major degree. The sections Imposed upon and linmpefcd must rise to Ihc opportunity ii|id use whatever hieans and methods the situation 'demands, i>ollt- ical as well as otherwise. —Memphis Commercial Appeal. National Memorial For Dr. Carver. The vote was unanimously in the affirmative when the House Public Lands Committee tills week considered a bill to establish a memorial to tlie late George Washington Carver, noted Negro scientist, <it ills birthplace near Diamond, Mo. Tills bill, sponsored by Senator Tr;::r.r.ii and Representative Short of Missouri, hlis already received n favorable committee report In the SenatCi 1 ". so lt;may he considered well on its w»y to adoption. This will not be n showy memorial, ns monuments lo great Americans go. By present plans, It will be merely n reproduction of the crude slave cabin where this outstanding plant specialist and educator was Irani 79 years ago. It will be a national tribute, nevertheless, and also a tribute by his native Slnte, for Ihe Missouri House In an unprecedented resolution recently asked Congress to create such a memorial. It will be ii reminder lo every citizen who visits the shrine that Dr. Carver wns one whose life and achievements were found worthy of high honor by his countrymen. —St. Louis Posl-Dispalch. * SO THEY SAY Through nil the vicissitudes of ibis hard and difficult life, under the heavy pressure, of providing home and shelter for his family, the Irishman lias chihg tenaciously to his fundamentals.

"She cyt loose!" he shrieked at I.oi-alnc, over their head phones, "i'at did! -. . .-She dived rigtit into this storm." "Jimmy, Wliat are you doing?" I.braine shrieked back. He didn't answer. But he put over the controls of the towing ship that he piloted, so that the sky train swung out in a long, spectacular arc. In a matter of seconds the njne sailplanes behind him were jerking craiily at the tow line. Thump - Ihumpely - thump! The power ship bucked like an Army tank in a forest. Up-and-down waves traveled over the long tow line. Loraine screamed out at Jimmy again, and again lie ignored her. He had a terrific fight with the elements here, and only a .man of 1 infinite'daring could have <!one what he did. And a man with excellent equipment. In about six minutes the train was flying smoothly again. Like sorne fantastic, imaginative dragon it streamed out of the dark bulk of the storm over Superstition Mountain as Jimmy swung back toward its Sky Harbor home. "Jimmy, where are we going?" Loraine demanded. "Slop yelping, and look!" "Look where? For what?" "Look down! See if you see any trace of Pat." "But—but what could you do if you did see her again?" He waited several seconds before answering. "I don't know," he confessed, then. He was straightening the train out now, heading west. Contrarilj-j tauntingly, the sun began to filter through and illuminate them. He g'Unued his great ship with all the NEXT: Is lightning a hiiard for airplanes?

Number Seven plane calling Coplain Carr. . . . Number Four reporting." "Iley!" Jimmy shouled it. "You're through again. I gel you no\v, fellows!" He was elated that the static and slorm had been left behind them, lie tried frantically lo contact Pat's ship but without success. Then he began issuing crisp orders. He was at 2100 feet when they neared Sky Harbor. The air was windy but clear here. He told Number Nine to let go. Then, each of the olhers, in turn. Their landing made a beautiful show and it was an extra ullniclion for those oi the spectators who had remained al the field. When the enlire "l.iil" of his power plane had letl him, Jimmy liebdcd easl once more. 'Oh!" Lorain proleslcd. "Afen'1 you going .lo land? Jimmy!"

Still he paid no nllcnlion, but •0 minutes later he suddenly, ontcd. x 'LOOK! . , . LOOK! . . . LOOK. HKItE!" They 'Razed down. There on a eop slope was a sailplane, the hitc blrdllke shape of It distinct 'ainst the reddish hue of the mmtaiii. "What's more, when mmy /owned near they saw Pat riday on Ihe ground frantically aving. "Pat! . . . Pat! ... Oh Pal!" He shrieked it wildly as if he dually expected her to hear. But e also waved, nnd dipped (ho one, nnd made her know they ad .seen her. Then,' a ock cliff confronted him, lie threw is plane into ;i straight-up climb ; if iiboul to loop. That cleared the rocks bul it .so'jerked Loraine Sluurt roughly round Ihe co-pilot's peat there. 'Jim Carr, you're tryinR to kill le!" 'She's safe!

No, no! Arc you—?" "Take over, I said! You know low to fly nil airplane!" She saw his purpose, then. "No! No! I won't do it! No!" But he was strapping a parachute on, nnd he was opening ii latch. "You can lake over or you can crash!" he shouted. Their he removed his head phones. He paused just one moment. Fierce in anger, frantic v.'ith fear, Loraine look (lie controls as ordered. When lie saw lhal, Jimmy Carr leaped. (To Be Concluded) It rained through half of our show today, but the boys never moved. If they can take it, I guess [ cau too.

One of the Marines gave me a Jap sniper's rifle and some Jap invasion money. I'm sending the stuff on home. Did a show tonight until 11 got dark.
