Enforced idleness had led' ~ to a seVies of disturbances ut the in- . stitiition. ' • Because of a law preventing commercial use of piison-made goods, • Mr. Ilamtnond could not,put his 2,900 *convjcts at work, to keep them out of . mibcliief. So he tried another idea. • - J He started drilling his prisoners, on ' ,a competitive basis, the various squads j. vying for^thq distinction of being tho "-V best-drilled in the prison. The plan has,worked with remarkable' success. The' interesting story seems to be analogous to one from abroad. When Hitler became Der Fuehrer, condition 1 ; in Germany were turbulent. He, too, began lo put his people on a military ^ basis and, by drumming into them the . theory that they were n chosen race, strengthened their competitive instinct. And thus far Hitler, too, has -- been successful.."' -"' ' Bui there the analogy ends. The principal aim. of Hammond's plan, it >' "seems,-is to keep the peace, Flaw Of Machine Age Whatever this modern era of technology may do for us, it docs leave us completely at the mercy of mechanical breakdowns. Never was the i'act more strikingly illustrated than by the failure of the electric power system at Newark, N. J., the other day. A small lire, unimportant in itself, swept a sub-station and cut oft the power line which brought current into Newark. For C'/a hours the city V.AS dark. Elevators sloppoi running, ; lighU went out, movies were suspended, hospital service was checked, radios went o(T, traffic lights stopped blinking, and the thoiisand-aiid-one little gadgets that run by electricity ceased to operate. Service wns resumed before anything very terrible happened, But how graphically does the incident show our utter dependence on the smooth working of the intricate machinery on which we have .built our civilization. One little accident can mean chuos for an entire city. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark • • , Continue.To Give ,, An J analysis of American clianly, justvcompleted .bj r a New York cor.i- '"mittee'~for .religious nml welfare recovery, ,reveals <t very striking i mid ^significant -fact. • ^ *, The highest percentage of giving- that has ever been recorded was nt- V r tained during the depression year of '„- 1932. And during 1935, the year in ." which 'recovery began to set in, n new low in, American geneiosity was reached. j. On the .surface, it seems odd people are more "inclined to aid others when they are least able; and yet, " perhaps, it is only natural. It may be x only when suffering and distress are widespread, and brought home to them personally, that people really can ' syimpathize with the plight of their , 'felloiiY citizens. '' If ths return of good times is to • benefit ail, "Americans must keep con- - stantly alive to the needs of unfortunates. Looking Ahead We believe that 1936 was a good year for most of the people of this city and the country around it. There is at this time no apparent, reason why'.'1937. should not bo an oven hotter one. Students of such mailers piofess to see a period of incieasing business activity and prosperity ahc.ul of the United States. This city and the fertile farming area of which it is the center arc in a position to sluue fully in the good limes that arc indicated for 1037 and the years immediately thereafter. We shall be short, sighted, however, if ^Ye fail to take advantage of improved economic conditions to make ourselves more secure against the possibility of a rqcuirence ot such a depression as that fiom which we have emerged. Too many of our eggs are still in the cotton basket, and while it lias carried them very well this year it would he the part of wisdom to take precautions for the future. In first place on Blytheville's list of unlmishcd business of 103G is the Kicc-Stix factory project. Completion, of the fund required to brjng this new source of income to our community, now lacking only a few thousand, should be our lirst achievement of 1937. <&y$'j\ %n - IS A\, ffS^- Toi)AY li'l}- ol *!"• Clirl»inin» .rly ut "Thundrr >K-»a," Ike de C-'oreht Imi-Ieiulu 'in Nrtv Mexico, bug :i trriKiu I'liUlut? ivLen i'KAItlj HAM DM l-»m:sT, oldcui at three vrM, IH found dead >vttk n knife In blN Ibrullt. : Knch ot Hie dt; Forex! brother* IIIIH tho KiKt niiine "rehrj."
