Business as Usual ' ; The function of American newspapers in the settlement of the postwar jobs problem was spotlighted in an address before the American Newspaper Association convention in New York by Frederick C. Crawford, board chairman of-the National Association, of Manufacturers. Lack of newspaper information on this problem, lie (old delegates, isV "one glaring deficiency" in a good wartime job by the American press. A.Mr. Crawford complained that he could not find in any newspaper the fsfcts relating to "the secret of it all— life production of wealth which is the source of jobs." He told of seeing 1 "entl- . leSs scraps of speeches or statements" scattered haphazard through the papers. But these, he said, were usually opinions and seldom whole truths. £'Thc opinions, he continued, were those of ••'•"teachers, preachers, politicians, theorists, Socialists, crackpots, business men and labor leaders . colored by prejudices or propaganda or hale or hope." He defied any reader to find in (he,press one set of facts on which to build his economic'future. .* We all wish, with Mr. Crawford, th^it there was one simple set of facts t£ solve' mir, post-war problems. But completely comparable situation has ever confronted this country, aYready-made solution isn't easy. . -c Few people will.dispute that production of wealth is the source of jobs. Bjit the'rtMs'nIso'ii general feeling that tjtje pcppcr,dislributi6n of wealth is the SQiirce'of 'prosperity. What constitutes pjroper distribution is only one of many snaes, ;• y;; : .•••.£ The-.teachers, i preachers, etc., that Mr. Crawford mentioned represents a •'. pretty good cross-section of (he people ^yho will; have to solve the problem. "•Theqj'ists" like Bernard Banich and John Hancock, "Politicians" like the Senate .Post-War Committee, have already•'''.offered.' valuable suggestions, ijaturally these suggestions arc colored b) r prejudice. But what opinion on a controversial subject isn't? J K Mr. Crawford were to define the '(whole truths" he mentioned, he would nrobafjiy.f'ind himself vulnerable to the same,_charge by those of different economic philosophy. t But how is the American press to Remedy its "glaring deficiency"? By gating together nationally and choosing "one set of fads" for all readers? That would bo not only virtually impossible, but inconsistent will, freedom of the press. - The function of the press in this situation will still be to report impartially,, and observe, comment and suggest editorially. And, if this be '"glaring deficiency," to plead guilty. Plpsmo Champs ? We hope that there will be no strain Oh iMisso-American relations as a result of the very understandable pout dial Edward (Spike) Howard, ex-wrestler and strong man, is wearing. Mr. Howard, who claims to have given 1102 blood donations in 15 years, read where Tass, Soviet news agency, proclaimed a Moscow railroad man the world's champion blood giver after 141 donations. Since Mr. Howard is a modest man, he can't blame Tass for never having heard of him. But a hundred or a thousand, they arc still magnificent; htimnnilariaii contributions that few of us can hope to approach. All we can do is remember them as we contemplate our own record of donations, and remember too that (he need for blood does not stop. __ BLYTHEVILLE. '(ARK.)' COURIER NEWS! No Sideshow There have been few more impressive rovalalions of America's productive power (ban the statement of Artc- mus L. Gates, Navy umler-secrelary for air, that "we've been having 1000-plane raids in the Pacific." In a "beat Germany, first" war it has been evident that the war in the Pacific is no sideshow. But it is a pleasant surprise to know that while our European striking force has been built to unbelievable proportions, the Pacific arm has been strengthened to an extent that seemed miraculous not long ago.

The early rays splashed over Saku- r.U'icho Railway Sl;ition. The ears al (he commuter trains for Tokyo clanked and bumped Into each other as they backed in from the Tnkaslilmn yards. The noise spread over the city, the background being the sound of shoe clogs on Hie sidewalks. In Niji Prison, a bugle aroused (lie war prisoners. Lincoln Jielt dressed and stood in line with the others. He marched to the door, to show a Japanese checker his nrmbancl with his name, nationality ;md identity number. This was the morning formality. j Link felt much heUcr this :morning, lie was stronger, not as .lislless, certainly not as depressed. ;The good rneal last night had .made that improvement. ! But he was worried about what jhad happened last night, it was !a queer tiling to happen. Too !<|uetr. The Japanese just did not :take prisoners out to their homes ;for dinner. ! Lin!; had the strongest conviction that there was a plot afoot, and not the least idea what ii 'could be. When he .(nought, of Novma Grcer, lie had a much dillerent •feeling. It was a sensation of gratification, of pleasure so strong that he was ainazecl. He could not recall that meeting any other girl had affected him as much. I'm in for some kind of trouble, and I'm worried, but I feel good too, ho rellccled. Some combination! * * « pILOT OFFICER BALDWIN frowned at him. "You do not seem very chip-in-the-air this morning, J must say," he said, The morning checkoff was over and they could talk, providing the hall guard was not inclined to be ugly. "You remember yesterday al language class?" Link said. "They started treating me decently for a change?" "Yes, and rmile a change it was, old boy." "Well," Link said, "I think something is afoot." The hall sentry shouted for silence. This was one of tlie mornings when he was going to be ugly, obviously. Link got up ;ind went (o the barred window and looked mil. He thought about Norma Grccr. Immediately he felt more cheerful, lie grinned al himself, at the effect that merely thinking of her was having on him. He turned away from the window. He looked at Baldwin, saw (hat the Australian was drawing, and went over to watch. Haldwin was drawing a rabbit. It was a startling and arresting rabbit. You looked at it and immediately forgot that it was drawn with homemade materials. Jt had a sly, lewd, devilish expression, a very interesting emotion for a rabbit to be having. Link had an impulse to tell Baldwin about the dinner last night, and the rest, and get Baldwin's idea about what might be back of it. I Cut there was an interruption. The cell door opened, and a noncom and several soldiers entered. 'THE Jap" rfo'ii-com" struck the" usual stance with one hand resting on his bolstered revolver. He eyed a paper in his other hand. They always had a paper for everything. "Pilot, Onicer Roger Baldwin!" said the Japanese loudly. "Oida iiassainiasu Ita!" "Bless our boots!" Baldwin gasped. "What did ho say in Japanese?" Link whispered. "Wants me !o come with him," Baldwin said. He looked up and there was a twisted expression on his face. "I don't like this." ; Link didn't like it either. Ho watched Baldwin limp out of the cell, favoring his foot which had become infected. : Baldwin was taken upstairs in! the elevator, in style. Captain Azaraski was not in his ' office. But on the big walnut desk stood a tray of hot food, thick bean soup with bean curds, boiled rice and a bit ot sponge cake. > Baldwin immediately sat down .' and attacked the food with chop- ' sticks. ; "Alsukamashii!" shouted one of the soldiers. "Thai is the Cap- Iain's breakfast." "Go away!" Baldwin told the soldiers and the officers. "Toddle off. Achi ike!" They ignored him, and gave him looks of displeasure. Captain Av.araski came in, sa- lulcd fhe officer and soldiers then dismissed them. While the so'ldiers i were leaving, Azaraski addressed Baldwin angrily, saying, "Hereafter make your report before you ent! And that is my breakfast you are eating!" When -the soldiers had gone, Baldwin eyed Azaraski and made a vocal clicking noise. "Nervous, ehV" he said. "Feel it necessary to put on a show this morning, do you?" Azaraski laughed, hut it was an uneasy laugh. "You get my goat. You are supposed to be only an informer. I should naturally have been angry, so 1 was angry." "Nervous," said Baldwin knowingly.
