For Ginriers or Others A friend submitted (.he following bit of • wisdom, which came to him through the Chase Bug compnny's little publication, though evidently it first saw the light of day elsewhere. He was of the opinion that it ought, to bo of particular interest to those engaged in the business of ginning Lotton. We will not attempt to suy as to that, which is a proposition concerning which the gimicrs ought to " know more than We. In any event the ,' space it oacuiiici, is not wasted, for if ..Jhe moral it points' is not needed by the ginners many of the rest of us can use-it to advantage. A lire man died and went to hcaVo'ii (billcvo It or riot) Upon being received by St. Peter, _ he asked lo be shown lo lits old competitors • of the lire business He was lold that cndi group of people ni Hie same Hiie of business lived together, therefore it was an easy mailer to go to tlleh district, and sec all the tire dealers 'at one time; • :•'• Upon seeing them, lie was suiprlseli to find that they were very thin; one co'ultl' tilm&t see . through fiiem Jitsl lit that tihic dinner was beme ser\ed, and to his astonishment platters ofrjEliclous foods were placed before thorn and before anyone was seated an angel came along and strapped a long iron sixxm on rach arm. • This spoon Mas stiappecl around the wrlsl, and ' : biceps, making It impossible lo bend, (lie arm. .As*a result they could only look at the food. „ .Our friend then went to another section where Die lawje/s lived, arid lo Ills surprise "lound them all fat and henltliy.

For, by slating'the Communist position so clearly and flatly, the Kus- bian leader simply throws our own position into greater relief. By making a blunt decimation of things %e , Jo ,, ot BLYTHEVILLE, (AML) CX)UIUEB NEWS believe, he helps us see what we really : do believe. The essence of his theory is that the New Deal—or any oilier effort to improve conditions upon the capitalist foundation—must fail, in the very nature of tilings. Unemployment is inherent in modern capitalist society. The ills against which workers protest cannot lie cured without puttiiig society on it new foundation. ' The division of human Ijcinirs into exploiters itiui exploited is fundamental, and the only possible solution is to give the'exploited complete control. . * * * It would be hard to find one par-- agraplMvhich expressed more precisely the exa'ct opposite of the sentiment which animatcs'.'the New Deal. We arc dedicated, that is, to the theory that Hie ills that have afflicted us in the last four years can be cured within the framework of capitalism. We believe that unemployment is not a necessary accompaniment of modern, mass-production capitalism. We believe'that the worker and Hie consumer can be given a decent break without destroying.the rlghls of employer and investor. We believe that co-operation can be substituted r 0! . exploitation in such way as to help ttll hands ami not, just one ciass. —Bruce Catton.

He should lake notice of where his money goes. Sec if "Land Rent" isn't the biggest item on his account—either that or sonic debt.
