Wouldn't it lit'lt) uiiikn lily- llicvillo a more attractive place for new industries if we just went a rea- h'onabh; way lowtinl makint,' conditions as favorable iis potisible for those we already have? Industries Caruthei'hville yesterday celebrated the opening there of the big new plant of tlie Brown Shoe company. Tho event was one worthy of the cominmi- . lly rejoicing it occasioned. Not only does it mean a very substantial payroll, but Ciiruthersville people hope, and with some reason, thut if the Brown company- liiuls their town a good place in which to conduct maiuir ' factoring operations other concerns niay follow its lead. The benefit is not confined to Caru- theisville. Any important contribution to the prosperity of one St. Francis valley community contributes indirectly to the prosperity of the entire valley. And conditions in I3lytlmvillo are enough like those in Canilhorsvillo to justify the belief that the. time is not far distant when industrial establish- 'mehts will seek location here. We are not certain that Hlytheville need 'offer inducements such as those that ultimately the selection of Caruthersvillc for the Brown plant. Canitliers\'iile'm'eu, have an investment ivi'that plant that will not be paid out in a short lime, although over a period of yciirs there is every prospect thai il will return good dividends. But whether or not we are prepared to put up. hard cash to attract industries we should at least do what is right and reasonable to make conditions here not only altraclivu Lo now industries but satisfactory to those we already have. The two youngest of Blythcville's major industries arc thu Rlytbeville ; Cotton Oil company and Hie lilylhc- 1 viMe Canning company. , Itath came here almost unsolicited, sought no : bonuses or oilier special inducements, conducted no local stock selling cam- paigns, in fact asked nothing of the ' community. The cotton oil company 1 has now been in operation over ten "_ years, the canning company is now in 1" its sixth year. In payrolls and in ; money spent for raw materials they ^ : have meant hundreds of thousands of I dollars to Blythevitlc and vicinity. Are we glad we have them? The answer, unanimously, is yes. Why, " then, has the cotton oil company had ^ to beg for years, and ultimately do ', most of the work itself, in order to Soviets 'Cain Confidence Kvidence that the Russian government is growing more and more confident, of its solidarity among the masses is to be seen in the new rules which liberalize the Soviet electiun laws. AllluMij'li the Russian government does not pretend to be a democracy, or to have a/ great deal of use for democratic processes, voting rights in the forthcoming elections for local Soviet governing bodies have been extended to the iuilak class, to certain minor capitalists, and to various members of what the Communists like to term the "parasite" groups. This, to be sure, is only a shadow of genuine self-government. The average Russian will have very little more to say about the way' his country is to be run than he has had in the past. But relaxation of these rules, unimportant as it is, would seem to indicate thai the Russian government is feeling a new confidence in its own popularity.

Tn fact, left-liandedncss seems lo be appreciated most in baseball pll- cliers, but hardly in any other form of sport. Even llie dictionary records the left side as inferior. Thus it state.: that the left hand is Inferior in muscular .strength, readiness and skill, and tills hand is less under control than the right hand for operations requiring delicate manipulations. The Irouble is lhat the dictionary docs not take into account thuj fact that the left Imnd miiy have been superior at birth, but that' somebody's notions insisted oi\ right-handedness and, therefore, the result was marked inferiority n both sides. In n previous generation nt- cinpls were made to make every hlld right-handed, regardless of ho tendencies which it betrayed owartl the left. The child who -s born left-handed conies into a vorlcl which is right-handed. Of course, lcft-hanrtcdui?ss is >ol a sign of inferiority or abnor- uallty any more than blue eyas on blond linir is a sign of inferiority or abnormality. The motions of our hands and legs arc controlled by our brains, Tharc are two sides 'of the brain. The left side controls the right hand and right leg, and the right side of the,brain controls the left hand and leg. In most cases one side or the other dominates, and this Is dependent on years ol hereditary development. » • • When we try to change left- handed children to right-handed ness, we are ronlly trying tc change the complete organi?^ tion of a switchboard, a netwo'rl of wires and switches that \ve tt HrvVfA-ULSOON TELLXQU/ EG/MX I KNOW THt SOUTH "DIAMOND SECTION, LIKE I ' USED TO KNOW THE t s ~ UM-K^r-h-KAFF- IR AW -HOW I KNOW "FIELDS, 1 OF KIMBCTtUEV/DE BEERS, K TAPIOCA/ ( TMJTOVTSP/XN, ' •""• YEH, THEY CALLEt) YOU >§ IN TO 6ET YOUR ON TH' - ENGUSH JAKE SAYS Pfe A DIAMOND , FOR f BUT I SA.V THAT \ MANY AN AUTO 1 TIKE '' TIAT '( OVER WHY, YOU COULDN'T TELL A\ PEKRL PROM A PIECE Of- Meat Packers Plan Discussion of Problems CHICAGO.
