In 1937 the Chamber of Commerce enjoyed the biggest membership in several years und more interest was manifested both by its membership and the public at large in its activities than in many years. Needless to say membership in tlit chamber is not a contribution but participation in an organised efVorl lo do for this city and Mississippi county what individual effort, however zealous, can not do. Community progress can lie most effectively served by such organized effort. It was the Chamber of Commerce that carried through lo completion the Rice-Stix factory project. It was the 'Chamber of Commerce that took a determined and active lead in opposing- three proposals, all of which would have been detrimental, if successful, to the cotton trade of this section. One was llic proposal by the Memphis Cotton Exchange to extend the radius for cotton concentration, apparently designed to draw cotton from the Blytheville territory. Another was a railroad's proposal to change the present cotton concentration .set-up. The third was the proposal by certain Arkansas interests, .to make radical changes in practices, in dealing with uncompressed' cotton.V •'-* The Chamber enlarged its aftiviiiea to include an active' farm membership with its own committees and leaders. .The body undertook the advancement of soybean marketing Ui s l year and expects to have a soybean mill and market established in Blytheville Ihis year. One of the most important acts of the Chamber of Commerce last year was in forming an emergency committee during the flood threat. The work of this committee will never be generally known because .so jniich of it. was devoted- lo the preparation of details to care for a major emergency that never developed—but it was an excellBiil example of organized effort. The Chamber of Commerce has a well defined program for 1938. Yet as an organized body it will be one that can'quickly throw its weight into any emergency that this section may face or for the realization of any goal that may loom unexpectedly. The Yarbro overpass is a major im- jflflvement, long anticipated, that the Chamber hopes to see become a reality. The direction of the Chamber's nf- fairs has been capably handled by President C. II. Wilson, Secretary J. Mull Brooks and the, 1037 board of directors. There is no reason to believe that the leadership will be in leas competent hands during IMS with Charles S. Lemons a»d hi s directorate in charge. A membership in the organization will serve not only the community but the member well. Tonsorial Talkers There have been a lot of jokes about the "talking barber" who insists on engaging his customers in conversation, but-now comes information that (he lirefcc! is fast disappearing. An enterprising Memphis newspaper reporter toured the city's barber shops niul found not a single tonsorial artist who tried to start a conversation. Many, he reported, would not even talk when he slarlcd the ball rolling. If talking barbers really are disappearing, it will mean the passing of a long-lived American institution—which few, incidentally, will mourn. One barber said some shops now enforce a "silence" rule. But the best guess would be th,at they found themselves outclassed when women clients invaded the shops, and haven't been able to gel going since. Go varment Ownership Two recent .proposals for government ownership of industry give rise to a more than usual amount of specula- lion and peering into the future. The umi.'iua! thing about both suggestions ia that they come from the industry aide of the fence. One is the proposal of Wendel Willkie, one of the nation's outstanding public utility executives, that the. government purchase the electric:properties''of his company in the TVA area. The other is the proposal of Governor Earle of Pennsylvania, backed by anthracite operators themselves, that the government buy and control op- cralion ol' the hard coal industry. Presumably neither of these proposals will be accomplished in the near future. But supposing they were. Would the federal government then purchase every other industry which got into financial difficulties? And if it did, would that be Communism, or Socialism, or Fascism, or what? It's .something to think about. I'm going back alone where we've been lo- cethcr and make a big glorious picture of Africa. 1 waul to do ll lor him.—Mrs. Osa Johnson, widow ct the famous explorer.

"Think what fun, just the two of us visiting every odd corner on tiie globo, seeing things through bolh our eyes, enjoying them together. When wo come back we can sclUe down lo the serious business of living. You can decide what you want lo do; where we want lo live. Bui first lei's have a real honeymoon, please, darling!" It was difficult lo refuse her when il seemed lo mean so much to her, when lie loved her so much. Alter all, a honeymoon was one thing that did not happen every day! He had promised not to let her money come bclwecn them. So finally Bret allowed himself to he persuaded. They booked passage for the luxurious Prince of Wales suite. Connie's private pullman, a gift from her grandfather on her birthday, took them lo New York. At the docks there was such a throng o! reporters and photographers, such a huge" crowd of: curious spectators eager for a glimpse of the young couple, or possibly an autograph, thai it was necessary to have police escort. This was Bret's first expcrieno, as the husband of the richest girl in the world. He was not at all sure that he liked it.

Wlien Bret and Connie played games, or swam in the big pool, or danced, there were whispered, though oflen audible comments, and always a group gathered as an audience. Once Bret opened the stateroom ' !oor suddenly lo discover a man eavesdropping outside. "I almost pitched him overboard," he fold Connie violently. "Why on earlh should people spy on us and whisper behind our backs and rubberneck? I think, honey, if you don't mind, we'll stay close to our rooms during the remainder of the voyage." Connie said she did not mind. Poor Bret, he was getting a taste of the gilded cage in which she always had lived. She did not mind the way people behaved as much as usual; not only because she was uscd to it, but because it was impossible for her to mind anything as long as she had Bret. They were very -happy during this second honeymoon. Perhaps they would never be .quite so happy again.
