Ar-KAN-sas or AR-kun-saw Somehow it's bxccwlinijly ilifi'kult for us to believe what \ve read in lite January 18 "Washington Alcrry-tio- Round," edited by Drew i'carson and Rob'eii S. Allen and one of llic better known of the many newspaper columns of ihside information anil gossip around the nation's capital. Personally we never have been exactly, sold on the accuracy of Iliese columnists who profess to lie {jiviiur the world the benefit of "inside" or "off Ih'e record" information. So to lie- Bin with we're going to say thai we have serious doubts about the accuracy-pi the story the "Washington Mcr- - ry-Go-Rouml" pnssns along about 14••• year-old John E. Miller jr., son of Arkansas' newest senator. Tlic "Mcrry-Ro-Round" credits yunnj,' Miller with rlllinjf firmly in favor of .the pronunciation of tho name of his jiom'e slate us Ar-KAN-sas and ajfiiiiisl. Ali-kah-saw in settling a dispute itnwiifi- his classmates at a Washington scliool. : . We have our doubts thai any person who has lived ill this stale or claims fo bti a resident of the slaloi even lliough temporarily domiciled in Washington, would refer to this' stale as Ar-KAN-sas. And that applies to .•youthful John E. Miller jr., tou. We wouldn't dxpccl any puUlt! school student in klytlicvillc lo mala* Ihci'mis- take lhat Pearson and Allcii more than likely, through error themselvds', indict young Miller for. . - v ; } ; iSr '• \ Despite, the often too frequent rcf- erehcps lo our slate as Ar-KAN-sas, noticed while visiting in other stales and on radio programs, we trust that .in our own stale, at least, we're still presenting a united front for AK-kan- saw. That famous speech of years gone by doomed for once and all any possibility of changing (he name of" Arkansas. And we trust, that young Miller's ruling in his classmates' argument, if correctly reported by the Washington columnists, will be without weight in his home state. Somehow we have little fear that Ar-KAN-sas will gain any belated popularity here. Feeding The Hungry A recent public health survey financed by a $.1,000,000 WPA 'allotment, resulted in the not loo startling information that poor people are hot as irealthy as those who have nutliey to spend 011 go'itl food and doctors. Simultaneously, Columbia University announced after exhaustive tests that $1.2!) \vili provide three good meals per day for a family of five on relief. Kor the $'1,000,000 it! relief funds spent oil the health survey, U,200,000 live-person families (10,000,000 persons') could have been fed for one day. 'faking it another way, more Hum '10,000 persons could have been fed for an entire year, using the university's) menus, Tim health survey probably provided fionic helpful information and gave .some John lo canvassers, but it's just porcililc that tho well-being of pool- people might have been benefited more by fmiiug -10,000 of thorn for a year than by inquiring about their health. (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS More And Bitter 'Roads Tho annual eonvelition of Hie American Koad Builders' Association, meeting in Cleveland, brings to the fore again the (iiiesllb'li of conslrudiilg additional highways in the United .States. President Roosevelt recently asked Congress (o cut down on federal road- building funds. Congressmen coillplain- rd, i-.onic very vigorously, they realized that at least part of their popularity back home depends on a cpn- tinitiii|r flow of federal cash lo build liaod highways. UMvib); itolitical aspecU entirely aside, however, the value of improved Highways wn.'i proved in dollars and eenls terms in recent tests in loAvil. The survey showed that if costs 3.07 cciif," a mile lo operate a passenger aulo on dirt roads; 2,17 cents per mile on graveled roads, and only 1.<1<1 cents a mile on paved roads. The Jcssoii is that good roads really save money. The nation can never get l»o many of them—whether they are limit with federal or local fluids—but only if congressional pork and 'graft are eliminated': froni all road construction jobs. ....•'• \ « Ajjpreciati Tl' ever ;i man nuedwl sniping salts lo recover from iiK(n:;>nl, il have been thai Ingliam cotiiily, Michigan, pension official to Whom a widow returned $176,5 w hj c n s ; lc | la | ( |,.a w ii f.s a niotiier's pension, cxplnininyr slid (iidn't newt it any lorjpjv.

ClfAPTKR XtV, "j'JI going iiome," Connie (old Elo/sc a few days later. Tiic words held an eijiptincss—for how coiild any place be "home," li'Jien liret would hot be there! Yet, it was bcciiusc ot Bret that she was leaving. He had scarcely looked at her these past tew days, hot once directly, deep into her eyes; he had had only Hie few necessary words to say. Ho had meant it when he hunt said everything was ovcl . between (hem. flow the work iir the camp's office was lighter, so nearly was the bridge completed, that old Pop Walters coiild manage without Connie's help. "There was a time," Eloise said, "when 1 woUd hnve beeii glad. it not how. Yon know I shall hate to sec you go; you know I'll hilss you." Connie said (hat she, too, would miss her friend. She was packing her few belongings into the imilaiion leather bag; its gilt letters "K. 13." did iiot look so bright; somehow. But she would carry it. Slio would wear the iiavy blue suit and the perky little hat. No one, besides Brel, must know, Until she had returned, her true identity. "Someone else will miss you, (oo," Etoisc said, smiling her shy, quiet sinile. There was no hurt in Ihe grave eyes how. She had so come lo love her friend thai; she conic! rmt aside her own heart's desire for her. Bret always had been her big brother; that he would remain, she knew. Connie shook her golden head. She could not trust herself to speak for a moment or two. She had stayed on, hoping that Bret would really forgive her, really understand, that he would see slit wos the same girl with -whom he hail fallen in love, that all her millions did hot matter. But now, liaving failed, she could no longer bear to stay. Oil an Inipulse she had decided siic riiiist go at once. . * * » [ DO tilings on an impulse, she (bought bitlcrly; H bad been ah impulse—a crazy, thrilling one —that had brought her here. It seemed fitting that another should lake lier away. "I'll catch the midnight train," she said to Eloise. "It stops, when It's flagged, at the junction. Bret won't know I've gone until morning. By (hen I'll be miles and miles away—as lie claimed 1 am, anyway—in another world entirely different from this." "You shouldn't go without telling Bret!", the other girl protested. "You may have quarreled —I know something has gone wrong between you. But don't you know that old saying about true io\'c? And yours—and Bret's —is true, if any love ever was." "You're a darling, Eloise," Connie said softly. She did not think she could have been as fine, had Bret loved someone else. The thought brought a slab of pain. Bret might yet come to do (hat very thing. He mighl, i,, time, find that Eloise w;ts Ihc only girl in the world for him. His love might have been true, but it had not stood the test of. cents and dollars, after all. He would not mari-y.iicr because she had so much money. And all her life she had been afraid to accept anyone, even IJodney, for fear he would be marrying her for her millions! "Surely you'll leave some message for Bret," Eloise urged. 'When he finds you're gone, he'll ask me it you didn't leave a mes- iage." Connie shook her head again. She snapped the. lock on the bag. "I don't believe he will," she said But if he did!—her heart skipped a beat—lhat would mean he still cared a little. She must leave some word for him; something to let him know that she cared, loo, and Would "forever and ever." "If he asks," Connie said, "tell him that I loved him because f didn't think he was afraid of anything. Tell him that I wouldn't be-if he had loved me enough— nnd (hat he has forgotten that love is the strongest, (he biggest tiling in the world.

"I'll 1*11 him—everything you said," Eloise promised. Her eyes were filled with slow tears. Sh& did not understand nil (hat her friend meant by the message. But she knew Dial love was the biggest thing in this world, perhaps in all Ihc worlds to come. * » t i was no one about in (he sleepy Jitlie village when Connie stole out of the old brick housq' laic that night. Even the slars had s(oppecl (heir twinkling; the sky was dark and silent. She looked for (lie last time at (hs tail, fhin steeple of (he little church high oh their special hill, al the range of mountains sheltering the valley, at the road that led to Bret's bridge, a lovely reality how of concrete columns, gracefully arched, and of sturdy steel. this was goodby to all of (liaC —and lo so much more beside? joodby to freedom and laughte^ ,o wings lhat she had tried; good- by lo Bret's strong arms, darlc eyes, and warm, tender lips. . . . She gave a little sob and stiimbleri as she almost ran, His bag bumping against her knees. It was nearly a mile to the junction; she would have to hurry. But (hat was not the only reason Connie ran. She knew if she hcsilaled, it she looked bac* once more, she would not be able to go on. She would eo back to Bret, beg him to tell her that he loved her, throwing pride aside, her millions, everything. She heard (lie first faint whistle of the, train as she reached the junction, a long, mournful, wailing sound, echoing and re-echoing. There is nothing so sad, she thought, as the whistle of a train at night. , The watchman did not seem to be anywhere about. Connie looked In the baggage room, knocked at me locked door of the small shed. She supposed somehow she, her- solf, would have to manage to flag ;he midnight train. There would be no other passenger, lhat was certain. But not so certain as she had magmed.
