Debts Coming Due From Little Hock comes the not surprising information that the various V, state educational institutions which in "recent years have been contracting -.'supposedly self-liquidating dchts for the construction of expensive buildings now propose to bring pressure uixm the'state legislature to have the ' state assume these obligations, amount' ing, it is said, to sohie §4,000,000. When Arkansas State College, Jonesboro, was borrowing hundreds * of thousands of dollars from the fed_'• 'eral,government several years ago for an extensive building program, now largely completed, the Courier News * and other newspapers pointed out that a very high degree of optimism was required to describe these debts as self-liquidating. They were eon- "~ * tracted on the theory that increased revenue in tlic way of dormitory rentals and additional fees of various - kinds "from an, enlarged enrollment Would provide the money for their re• tircment. That was too obviously preposterous for belief and it was freely predicted that the time was not far distant ,\vhen the taxpayers of the state would be asked to shoulder the load. .That time, it appears, has ar- •, rived. , The taxpayers, however, may lind satisfaction in the statement that no - such progi'am will have the approval of Carl E.* Bailey, who within a few days will occupy the governor's chair. - It is not/ we are certain, that Mr. Bailey ^or anyone else in Arkansas desires ,to , put obstacles in the way of the development of the vaiious state colleges and the university. "-They are 'valuable institutions, rend> cring important service to Arkansas. "•• But the time to call upon the pco- . pie of this state for millions of dol- t - lars for the" expansion of these in"- stitvitions of higher learning will not , 'come until the, financial problems of the common school system of Arkansas have been solved. We must - build an adequate and complete educational program but we must build it from the bottom upward. Our expenditures for institutions of collegiate , rank are already too high in propor- - - tion to the provision that we have ,' _ been able to make for ele'mentary f and secondary schools and it is simply out of the question to make our educational system even more top-heavy. The educators who borrowed the federal, money without knowing how they were going to pay ty. back arc in a difficult situation. Uncle Sain was an easy lender but he may prove to bo a hard-boiled collector. But the problem 1 is one for the borrp'wcrs to solve. The people of Arkansas, \vho never would, have voted the money if the question had been submitted to them in the first place, are not going to assume the burden now, SIDE GLANCES By George, Clark Civilization Is Menaced by Spanish Savagery Tlic airplane bombings of Madrid ought to make it perfectly clear, by now, that that kind of warfare is an. ugly, inhuman, and unrelieved throwback to absolute savagery. No plea o£ military necessity can excuse this long-continued .'bombardment of a populous city. The military Tiiind which demands such measures is the sort of mind that sees in every bed-ridden cripple, every baby in arms, every housewife, and every school • Child an enemy as, important as the soldier at the front. For it is obvious that when an army showers flame and explosives on ft city, as the rebel army has been'" showering the\n on Madrid, it is out to break, by any means, the populace's will to resistance. To that end it can count the murder of an infant, the burning of a hospital full of expectant mothers, or the destruction of a school building and its pupils as an achievement equal to the capture of a trench or the destruction of an airdrome. It may be that this frightful philosophy can exist only in a bitter civil war, whcie to the ordinary brutality of war there is added n fierce personal hatred, a bias which makes the opposition look like liends against whom any form of frightfulness is permissible. But even there the excuse is a liooi- one. For warfare of this kind is the fruit of a mental attitude |whicli can have no place in a world calling itself civilized. The mere existence of armies and governments which can fight in this way is a threat to the well-being of the entire world. There has been a good deal of talk about the "colfapse of civilization" which another war would bring. That *• collapse would not come through the physical destruction of towns, factories, and 'transportation systems, or through the mere total of violent deaths. It would come through this -resort to barbarism, of which the assault on Madrid is so glaring , in example. For a world which fights like this is not civilized. It is on a level with the ancient world in which Assyrian armies put the inhabitants to the sword after capturing a city. The only difference would be that the modern world put them to the sword before capturing the city, not afterward.
