Labor Shortage According to n dispatch from I.HlU.' Hoek, \V. H. Jlanvillc, ilircclor of the U. S. employment service oll'ltx* HKVP, is considering sendinj; to Mexico Tor cotton pickers lo help gather the crop in eastern Arkansas. He does not, we are tlinnkl'nl to note 1 , including Hlythcville in the U-n-ilory in which he regards the hilior slmrt- nge as acute, but ho docs say that from 0;cco1n to Helena llicro is urgent need for more pickers. Based on observations in this immediate territory, our opinion is Unit the fewer outside workers, Mexicans or any other kind, that are brought in to gather this crop, the hotter off this community will Ijc. Wo have thousands of local families who will have no source of livelihood between now and )iext spring except w'.iat they can MINI picking cotton. To import pickers to meet a temporary labor shortage of a few weeks duration would take bread out of the mouths of home people and \votild leave the community with the added problem of caring for many of the outsiders, who inevitably would find themselves stranded here. ', Possibly the situation is different further lo the south, but we think our neighbors there had best proceed cautiously with the importation of labor. At least they should demand a guarantee (hat imported workers will lie returned to their homes when the crop is out. Those "Pagan Educators" Recent attacks on "pagan educators" at the University of North Carolina will attract the attention of educators throughout the country. They create a-situation which true friends of higher education cannot fail to view witn- out a certain amount of concern. Just how far a destructive spirit of criticism may have developed in North Carolina's institutions is something that only those on the spot can make clear. But one tiling needs to be remembered: The University of Xorth Carolina has established a reputation as ono of the best universities in the country. It would be highly regrettable if a furore caused by ill-advised speeches and writings on the part nf a few people should lead to restrictive acts OUT OUR WAY which would in any way fctli-r 'the institution's march forward. North Carolina would do well In handle these charges with the most extreme c;ire.

Julius Franskicwicz, Barnes road animal trainer, gave tlie bear to the park aftor Bruin failed to respond to his curb. The animal was placed in a big vockv pit with scores of his fellows. But Bruin didn't like it. He ci.imbered up She wire netting surrounding the enclosure and brov.-ffrl about in the park. Several times he was recaptured and rcconfmed.

Translated, it means "at a bargain—cheap." Actually, "au bon marche" indicates to the French what a true bargain does to Americans—dependable merchandise at fair prices. When so many shops everywhere are full of merchandise on which the "price appeal" is prominent, it is necessary that the wise shopper insist upon products of known value and proven merit. Tlie clock that will not keep time is hardly a bargain at any price. Foodstuffs and drug-store supplies must contain pure ingredients and be prepared under hy- genic conditions, lest they become not only cheap but dangerous. Wearing apparel at a mark-down is only a snare and a delusion if it lacks the quality thai will result in wear. Wise shoppers, these days, arc refusing substitutes, are weighing- true worth against price appeal. They are using the advertisements in this newspaper as a shopping guide. When a merchant advertises his wares consistently, you may be sure that he is telling the truth about them. He could not afford to do otherwise, even if he so desired. When a manufacturer of national scope appeals to you through these pages, you can believe and act upon his words. "Au bon marche." Today advertising points the way to the only real bargains!
