In eight months, July 1, 1930, to March 1, 1931, 5,768 truck loads or smaller transactions in cotton seed, nioiil and hulls were made at (he Rly- tlievillc Cotton Oil company's plant. 2,500 sales of meal and hulls were made to farmers who called at the mill in trucks, automobiles or wagons. 1,004 purchases' of cotton seed in small lots were made from farmers. 2,264 truck loads of cotton seed were received from gins. Altogether, in the eight months period, 5,708 trips were made over the oil mill road to deliver or take, away products handled by the mill. Unrecorded additional thousands of trips were made over this same road on other business at the oil mill and at tiie Meyers Bro- '.tliers gin. Farmers living south of Blytheville use (his road on their trips to and from town. Aside from the state' highways it is doubtful if there is . a road entering Blytheville (hat has a heavier volume of traffic. \Ve give these facts to show that it is important to Blytheville that this road be kept in good condition. It is a road that brings a great volume of business to this city. It is a road that is used by thousands of persons living- outside of this city. If the county will riot or cannot take care, of it it is to our interest, as a city. to. do. the • job. ... Why We Go to College A college or a university is generally believed to be a sort .of warehouse whore innumerable facts arc stored, .to be sorted out and delivered, in proper quantities, to aspiring students who come in search of knowledge. But Dr. Ernest i\T. Hopkins, president of, Dartmouth College, told middle-western alumni of Dartmouth the other day that this conception of a college is entirely wrong. Indeed, he asserted, the prime function of a college is not at all to give knowledge to its students. It does its part if it merely imparts to them an OUT OUR WAY inquiring and understanding naliit of mind. "Nothing is more useless than a fact by itself," .says Dr. .Hopkins. "The only thing a liUeral arts college can do is to offer the atmosphere and environment in which education can be got." All of this is perfectly sound, and educators all over the country linve been saying it for years; but since it rims counter to the, ordinary conception of higher education it is worth looking at a bit. During Jhe last two decades the ranks of college •Indents in the United States have been enormously increased. A far higher percentage of young people 4 is going to college today than was the case a generation ago; and back of this increase lies a fervent hope, on the part of hundreds of thousands of parents, that the college will somehow contrive to stuff their offspring , with knowledge that will bring larger pay-checks, liner homes and a more comfortable station in life. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work out that way; and a great deal of disappointment would be prevented if there could only be a wider understanding of the-truth of Dr. Hopkins' remarks. The college does not exist primarily to.enable young people to make more money when they get out into the world. It is not supposed to load their brains with facts so that they will be walking encyclopedias. The most it can hope to do is put them into contact with the thoughts of great minds, and , teach them to maintain an inquiring and unprejudiced attitude. As Dr. Hopkins says, it aims not so much to teach the students to do something as to teach them to be something. But it probably will take us. a long time to realize this. We demand tangible results when we put our money on the line. .When we send our son off to college we fondly expect that he will emerge, after four years of it, ready to become a captain of industry or a highly-salaried professional man. It is hard for us to understand that a broadened horizon can be, in itself, worth the expense of a-college education. , : • ._' SIDE GLANCES By George Clark When convicts get uneasy,' that's the time the warden ' takes his pen .In hand.'

Democrats Favor Change • In the last two presidential years the Democratic platform pledged the party "to keep our promise to Ihese (Fllipinol people by granlin? them Immediately the Independence which they so honorr.bly covet." The DemocraU will have hardly less than a mnjorily in either house and many Republicans, both Progressive nnd regular, also favor independence. The most widely discussed Independence measure In the last Congress, and one which win be up again In the next, was the Haxves- Cuttlng bill. This . would impose a graduated tariff on the Philippines this country.

Dr. Moncndo came on here with the Wea of blocking attempts to bar Filipino Immigrants and talked to fibout a hundred members of Congress, mapping out anti-exclusion and Independence plans especially wllh Senator King of Utah and Congressman Knutson of Minnesota, chairman of the House Com- mlltee on Insular Affairs.

LAWL.ER For Oily Treasurer ROSS BEAVERS (re-election, 2nd term) In the earlier days of this country, spending th.e family budget used to be a hazardous business. It was only by harsh experience that a householder learned to steer clear of bad bargains and come into port with his money's worth. There were snags and shoals aplenty. Inferior goods and unscrupulous merchandising methods made the channel dangerous. "Let the buyer beware" was an accepted slogan of trade. _ Fortunately for millions of consumers, this condition has wholly changed in more recent years. The channel has been charted. Today advertised, trade-marked goods of known value are for sale in every city and hamlet. The buyer knows he can trust such products. He reads the advertisements in his paper, chooses the commodities he needs, and makes his purchases with the knowledge that he will get full value for h is outlay. The advertising columns of this newspaper point the way to satisfaction. If you make a habit to read them daily you will save money, and save time. Advertising is your guide to safe
