Many towns have raised money to subsidize factories which turned out to bo anything but assets.' We do not believe that the people . of Blytheville have any grounds for apprehension lest their investment in the proposed Rice-Stix development henvprove similarly unwise. . The company for which Blytheville is to build a $70,000 factory building is one of the 'calling wholesale dry goods concerns in the country. It is old, stable, has ample (inancia' resources, and has established a reputation for dealing fairly with its customers, its employes and with the communities in which it operates. , The agreement under which il will come to Blytheville has none of the undesirable provisions which are often found in industrial development cou- - tracts. There will be no exemption .from taxation, no deductions from the t. wages of employes to pay tile cost of establishing the factory here. Besides the use of a building to be provided by the coivummity the Rice-Stix Co,' asks no special favors. It, does want the good will of the people of Blytheville ' and it is its apparent intention so lo conduct its aflairs here as to Yne'ril il. II "is not a high wage imlustry but . employes of the Blytheville plant will receive the same scale as employes of -• similar plants in Missouri and Illinois. ' The 'company hopes to find an ample . and stable labor supply here, not. ^-workers willing to accept less than the ~wiige • prevailing - in the industry. It is in no sense a fly-by-night prop, osition. Rice-Stix hopes lo beco'me a ' permanent part of this community and to expand in this community, to the mutual advantage of company and community. We believe that it will prove a real - asset to Blytheville, ultimately worth many times the - investment we are putting into it. k National Problems We believe that most cotton belt farmers will approve the decision of Secretary of Agriculture Wallace to ask coiigrcwi to repeal the provision of the Agricultural Conservation Act which would 'turn over to the 48 states all responsibility for the regulation of agricultural production after this year. The protection of our soil resources from wasteful and destructive exploi- . tation and the protection of our agricultural industry from equally wasteful and destructive over-production are problems that must be solved in the national interest. It is ridiculous to imagine that efforts for their solution by 48 state legislatures could result in anything but Hopelessly ineffective confusion. As Secretary Wallace expressed it, "the problems of agricultural prices, income and competitive exploitation, of soil . . .have no regard whatever for state lines." They must bo dealt with effectively and that means that they must be dealt with nationally. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark The Industrial Issue /flic statement of- Alfred P. Sloan jr., presi- dent'of General Motors, to the.:employes; of that; great -aggregate of corporations, setting forth tho management's attitude" Ibwnrd ihe demands ot Induilral unionists, Is strikingly rcmlrjlsceiir of both llic tone and substance of Judge Gary's statement of policy at the time of the steel strike of 1910. It Is quite evident that there has been no great change of opinion on the subject of trades unionism on the part ot the chief executives of moat of the-'great mass production Industiics The new "crn of good feeling' is one of feeling, not of pollcj. When Mr, Sloan .says: "Will a labor organization run the plants of General Motors Corporation or will.'the management continue to do-so?".-111! asserts in-the form of n <iucs- tiou the ;>lill dominant Industrial policy of America outside railroading, coal mining and llic'building ami needle trades. And undoubtedly 'thnt'policy in essence Is:approved by vast numbers, peilmps u iiuijoilly, of Ameilcans of the clerical, professional, trading and small business groups, by faimeis and by millions of wage earners. On the other hand, the hnrdshlpb of de^ presston anil unemplojmcnt, part time and Intermittent work, the speeding up of woik- crs in .straight line production plants, nnd the discaidiug ot middle-aged employes have whetted the desire, of many workcis In these Inriiiblrlcs for a brake upon management if hot » shore in management.

He cnst a triumphant glance back over liis shoulder and turned ciovm the trail. More than once ho tripped and fell, bruising himself against sharp, hidden rucks but he dared not take time to watch his steps. Time had. become the all-important factor, 'f Betty were still alive— and Bob .would not let himself believe she was not — he must gel help Santa Fe at once. With officia permission to search the house, hi was sure lie could fuui her. Carefully lie skirted a bouldc thai rose on one side of the trai find waited a moment in. its she! ter to take stock o£ his location Was that sound from behind onl the steady whine of the wind Bob decided his imagination wa getting the better of him, an stalled on, his thoughts once mor on the strange household he ha left behind. ' There was the thin-faced arche ologist, still lying in a coma. Ho\ did they know that he was wha he said? What i£ the profcsso ere only pretending that.-he ould not speak or move? And lat r wooden-faced Indian Avho ad giiardecl the top'ol the trail own the canyon. If the old lady had-not died lob would have thought ste had ad something to do with the eath of her nephews. Maybe she Id, at that. She had not been ne-half so feeble and half-witted s she seemed. He was convinced f this and Betty thought so, too. Jetty=^where was 'she now? The icught lent wings to Bob's feet, nd he strode ahead with added peed. .- Then he hoard a noise and urned quickly. Someona was oming behind him. He listened minute, decided it was more ha n one person, and that they a- coming with all the speed i familiarity with the. trail. Bob urned his own pace—then turned is ankle against a fallen log. The stab of pain made him izzy for a moment, but he hob- led a few steps farther before e sank in the snow. Nearer and earer came the pursuers. * »• • PHE next few minutes seemed an eterrftty. Then a glow of ight blinded Bob as someone with swinging lantern peered down it him in the darkness.; There were three men together. At a urt command from one (Bob was ure he recognized de Forest's rojce) an Indian blanket was Iropped over his head and he was if ted and carried up the trail by wo stout Mexicans—again a pris- mer.' : -.'..That journey back to the hacienda lasted for a space of time which always remained uncertain li Bob's mind, lor, even when hey came to the level of th mesa, the men did not stop a minute. They hurried on until apparently they came to tho hbusi (self. Then Bob felt himself being carried down a flight of stairs After a few moments he was lai on a floor and heard dc Fores talking in low tones. Bob gritted his teeth, waiting to see .wha would happen next. He' did not have : to wait long Retreating footsteps told him tha the two men who had carried hi; were departing, and now.he:ha the sensation that someone. \v; leaning over him, for a blur o light came through the thicknes of the blanket. In a minute h .wa.s, being pulled,: through" spm kin^d of an opening and, burripe along a dirt floor. -The'pain i his injured ankle drove all els from his . mind and a groa escaped his lips.

A cold chi! orror swept over Bob.-This ic climax of all the de Fr. ruclly. Now he was ad fallen into the power of lad man, more ruthless even 11 he older brothers or Tante Jo 'hino. The creeping thing stopped Bob's side. He felt hands—I •nan hands—fumbling at tho bli let. Almost : at ' once the n bout his waist was loosened. 1 ore the blanket from his h nd reached out info the darkn —to grasp a girl's small hand: "Oh!" she gasped. "Betty!"

From lime Immemorial, the blood has ben known to be essential to life. The. sloiv of the gradual changes ol opinion ' concerning ttie blood is one of the most fascinating stories in science. The early knowledge of the blood is mixed with maelc and strange ... supmttllons which were destroy- cd only by the development-of the microscope and the growth of modem physiology. Now we determine not only the nature' of Ihe blood and' its Variations under different conditions, but nfeo llic manner in which it circulates and brings nutrition and life to every part of the body. * \ Only 50 years have passed since some of- the formed elements about whfch • we now talk gliblj first were seen In ihe blood.
