Ringing Humnwrs The hammers in Amenciiu shipyards arc beginning to ring, anil hifli time, too. The total loss of the liner. President Hoover reduced still further the small merchant fleet wilh which the United Slides seeks its slinrc of the world's trade. The German liainbunr-Ainc'riran line is launching this month a Ifi.OOO-ion liner for Hie Sotitli American trade, a lO.OOO-loii liiier for Australian .serwce, and seven smaller ships. Oilier couii- trie.s are building steadily. The first of the new American liners, sister ship lo the Washington nnd Manhatliin, will not be finished until .1940. But sho is at least under way, end more than 12(1 oilier American ships are now on the ways. But before these ships are launched, the problems of marine labor iniisl ho settled, or opcralion of the ships is doomed lo failure. Few people care to sail or ship on vessels whose operation is made uncertain by labor Iroulilo. Together, Ihc marine unions! and Ihu shipping companies owe a national duty to put their relationships on a decent, sensible, workable footing.

Ihc same dodge on the Germans in the concluding months of the World War. "We are not fighting the German people; \ve are lighting your mastcj's." "We have food; better surrender." It is believed by many students lo have been a big factor in the final German collapse. .Increasingly, day by day, the world's battles arc being fought nut only by bomb, but by bombast. Such Sacrilege! For once, the American people will probably agree with the justice of the most recent instance of Soviet disci- OUTOUK WAY plinary action--the ousting .of Boris Shiuuialsky, head of the Russian motion picture industry, for trying to inject «ex appeal into "Treasure Island." Pulling' love interest into Robert Louis Stevenson's immortal adventure story would appear to he the acme of absurdity. ICven Hollywood never thought of transforming Cabin Roy Jim llawkiiiw into a girl mimed Jenny. Slmmmlxky apparently was trying to out-Hollywood Hollywood. He deserved just what he got.

This paradox doesn't phase tlic professional l>i>liliclinis. however. They hnvo been profiling Irom the itbiises of llie pollltciil system so lout; Iliat they have convinced themselves It is their right and privilege to trade in jobs anil dial It is no more than rlRht that the Governor should nssess stale employes for campaign expenses. The very fact Hint thci'c is a movement on among Ihc politicians to have the law repealed is the most convincing of evidence (hat it is accomplishing some good. Civil service was one of Die Governor's r.lrong- ec-t pledges In his campaign. Tlic people remember it ; vividly and there could be no .iiu'l- •nfolo explanation If lie should repudiate that pledge now and ask for (he repeal of the civil service laws. And members of the legislature will do well tc be wary ot their movements In that direction. There can be no Interpretation of any attempt by the assembly lo repeal the laws except Mini scnalor.s' and representatives nrc hungry for Ihc return ol their privilege of passing out .state Jobs in-return for voles for pet bills. No civil service law ever conceived is air tight against abuses. There continue to be plenty of Ilicm in Arkansas, goodness knows. Hut civil service is a system that has been tried and approved. H is improving conditions In Arkansas and as public, sentiment is built up behind it, it will continue to bear beneficial results. It would be n sad commentary on (lie lei;- ifUiU'.re and (he state as a whole i( Ilic assembly, called into session to contribute lo the slale's progress by working out iv plan for building more highways, should take such a reactionary .'.Irp us the repeal of lite civil service laws. —Joncsbovo Tribune.

He did not say anylhing-for \i moment; (hen ho turned toward her, and now his eyes looked inlo hers, deeply, scarchingly, as only Bret's eyes could, causing her knees lo go weak beneath her, her heart lo hammer painfully, "I lold you," he said "lhal I had something to.

I still love you—in that same way — as I always shall. Connie . . . look al me! It isn't much lhal I have to offer, only my love, but if it's enough—I'll give it all lo you. In exchange, darling, for your wonderful plan. Which we will carry out, to- gelhcr." She look her hands from her face, looked at him as (hough she could not believe what he had just told her. Such a flood of joy . swept llirough her, such unbelievable ecslacy Ihat she wondered if she dared believe him. 'It won't be easy," Bret went on. "To carry out this plan or lo-make-our-marriRge over.
