A Stranger Among Us The Mexicans ;md the Chinese are hospitable peoples, courteous and generous in their treatment of stranger.-;, hut among them are bandits to whom the traveler from abroad is often easy and lucrative prey, and iis a result neither China nor Mexico enjoys, the reputation for hospitality : , thai the character of their peoples warrants. Unless we are careful the reputation of Arkansas will bo no better than that of China or Mexico. Our people arc hospitable, anxious to make easy and pleasant the' way of the ' stranger among us, but like Mexico and China we have among us bandits to whom the traveler is easy and profitable prey. Fortunately we are in a position to do somelliinjr iibuul it. Mexico and China have bandits because their governments arc too weak to. suppress them. Our bandits are agents of our government. When we rise up in the naine of human decency and in behalf of the good reputation of our state they will be eliminated. When that is done we will no longer be disgraced by such occurrences as that of.last week when a visitor from another state, an unwitting technical Violator of a state law of very doubtful constitutionality, was thrown into jail for 24 hours and threatened with prosecution under a variety of charges until, as the easiest way. out of an unpleasant situation,' he "paid off" and was permitted to go his way, no doubt carrying back to his home community a story not much different from those brought home by travelers in robber infested lands across the seas. Worthy of Support This is Blytheville Library Week, and tomorrow the annual' campaign for the memberships by which the institution is sustained will be opened by the Blytheville Library association. Our library, although small, is steadily increasing in importance and in' usefulness to the community. The service which it renders is extremely large in proportion to the small cost of its operation. As an institution for the benefit of all of the people it ought to have public support. Recognition of this was givon by the city council some months ago, when an appropriation of S25 per OUT OUR WAY month was made to the library. That was nol much, but it would have been of substantial help. Unfortunately, however, it has not IJCCD paid, and the library is left wholly dependent upon the generosity °f I' 1 "* 6 wno recognize the value of its service—a service ol 1 which the young people of Hlythevillc are the principal heiit'liciaries. The library association has .set $1,000 for its goal in the campaign opening tomorrow. That is the minimum amount necessary to keep the institution functioning. The membership is ?2 per year, but unless some friends of the library give larger.amounts the goal will not be reached. It would lie a community misfortune if this campaign' were to fail. Rale Regulations Frank H. JIcNcill, fn-year-old mayor of Paris, Temi., a national ligtire since his marriage two years ago to a 10- year-ohl girl and his attempt to niuki^ I'aris a hull lighting center, now has a new claim to fame. Instead of seeking Ly law to compel reduction of rates by the utility company serving Pan.; with water and electricity he has advised the people of the town to return to the tallow candles nnd old oaken buckets of their forefathers. That is not as ridiculous as it may sound. In fact it i.i the most natural and cll'eclive way of controlling prices. When beef is high the thrifty housewife turns to pork, or, if that ii also high, to beans or pens. \Vhen enough housewives decide that beef is too high and turn to something else, the price of beef comes down. The rule is applicable to utilities. For years shippers howled and protested to government agencies against what they termed excessive railroad freight rates, and- usually they got no satisfaction at all—sometimes they even got a boost in rates. But when they started shipping by motor truck and river barge on nil extensive scale railroad rntes came down in a hurry. Uncle Sam is now learning the same lesson. To cure a postal deficit and to help balance the budget the first class postage rate was boosted from two to three cents. You may think thorc is no substitute for the mail, but apparently (here is, for the volume of first class mail has declined to such an ex- lent that the three cent rate threatens to yield less revenue 'than the old two cent rate. The public is not going to pay more for any commodity or service than it is worth to the buyer. That is the best safeguard against excessive charges for anything.

CHURCH EXCUSES BY GEORGE \V. BAliHAM Dear Aunt: You sure wrote me a nice, long, new sic letter. You have no idea how I have- misseel yon since we nuneci here and 1 don't sec how I could have stood it wilhout- your niic long, homey letters. I have missed much. dearest thing in the world and if all the eh'ls who gel nurried had i an aunt like you there would ; no: be so many elivorces. Surely all the men of youv aye must | liavo been blind. It may be that ! they it-cognized the fact that you ! ai'u so much ahead of them intcl- '. lecUta'ly that they would r.ot risk your help and advise so T just know yon are the our church letters are still in our trunk. I do wish you could visit us and Ihen you could sec the situation and be belter able to advise us just what is for. us. You could attend all the churches and sec the people and you are such a gcod judge of people you coulcl find out just in no time which, church would be best suited for us. -It's like you soy, when a ucrsou moves into a new place- the way they get along all depends upon getting started right v and ec-lting in wiih the right people. Remember nip to all my old, friends and hurry along another fat letter.
