Flood Danger Returns The experience of almost every year since the great flood of 1927 is bcinjr repeated this year in the western part of this county, where water in the Big Lake-Little River floodway is rising toward the (lunger mark. It is too early to say what the result will be. If more rains fall within the next few days there will be an expensive fight to hold the levees, possibly ending in a crevasse, large property damage and the flight of hundreds of families from their homes. If the rains hold off the danger probably will pass for the present, possibly to return later in the season. The point to be emphasised is that the danger exists, just as it has on one or more occasions during almost every year in the past ton. And nothing is more certain than thai if nothing is done about il the danger will return in almost every succeeding year. Ally change is likely to be for tl)e worse, because land clearing and ditching operations to. the north arc lending to increase 'the rapidity of the run-off over all of the great area drained by Little River. Government engineers who have studied the problem say that the only solution is to widen the Little River floodway south ol! Big Lake. Congress has authorized expenditure of federal money to do the work. The right of way,. however, must be provided locally, and that is the chief /remain• ing obstacle. Some owners of property in the area have been reluctant to sell and others have soUght exorbitant prices.. As n result progress has been ..slow. , The return of the flood menace should serve as a rominder of the necessity of pushing this project to completion. Neither the government nor Drainage District 17 can continue year after year to make the great expenditures whicli experience has shown are involved in attempting, not always successfully, to hold the levees as they are now located. They must be moved back or the whole flood control program in the Little River basin will ultimately collapse. We would not urge owners of property needed for the enlarged floodway to make unreasonable sacrifices. But certainly it is to their interest ami to that of their neighbors along the river to make some concessions to permit this all-import•ant work to go ahead. "Unworkabtcs" The jobless )nen who hung around the outside of his foundry always interested Joe Hume Gardner, president of a Buffalo, N. Y., iron and steel plant. He frequently wondered what they would do if they had jobs. The other day lie decided to experiment, and hired 25 of the men, Only seven of the group stuck it out. "They're good workers, too," says Mr. Gardner. "But' there were several cases that were just plain 'unworkables.' They had one desire; to sit behind a desk and look at figures." If Mr. Gardner's little lest proves anything, it is that, in every group of men, there are u few who are con- Kcnilally opposed to work; and it is for that reason that joblessness can never be entirely erased from the economic picture.

As to Its doctrines on free love—well, can anyone truthfully .deny that free love, In one form or niiolhcr, Is being assiduously practiced in practically every community in Arkansas— and probably In every other community in every stale und every country, In (lie world? The : difference Is this: the Commomvealth- cis are quite open and frank about It; the rest of the world Is very dark and secretive, and that lends tang and zest to the ensuing gossip.
