Those who rmulc the trip to lliu football game at Walnut Ridge week will no doiibl read with micros!, thc lotier from Mr, ,1. V. Bland, publisher oil the Walnut Hidge Tiinc.s- Dispatch, published elsewhere ou this page. Mr. Bland, of course, expresses llio viewpoint of the great majority of the people of Walnut Ridge, who feel just as we in Klythevillc would feel should similar disorders occur here. There an; thugs and hoodlums in every community. Some of our people came home last Friday with the idea that Walnut Jlidjro bus llwrt . tj,. !n ;t, s share of them. Thai may be so but •Ve, imagine the truth of the mutter is that it just seemed that way because the police failed to keep' Ilium .in hand. 1 In -any evuiil le.stiiiiony of Ulylliu- villo players and spectators alike [ H .11)at the Walnut Hidgo team was made up of «s dean ami sportsmanlike' a !,'roup of young atlilotos as may be uiicounlereu'j^Tiy^V^ere.

Not often does a merchant. Bailor . attain such widespread public confidence as Captain Fried has attained. lli.s cool, seainanlike, and daring rescues ut sea are almost legendary. Any man who could perform as he performed in the famous Autinoe and Florida rescues must be a pretty broad- gauge sort of man as well as a (\rsl- rato sailor. Captain Fried, in other words, is loo valuable a man to be allowed' to slip into retirement just yet. His new job is one of vast responsibility. The safety of many sea travelers depends on it being handled properly. And with Captain Fried (iliing in, . ^tho American public will have eom- A fjtemisfihere Apart Tho great gulf that separates the occidental.. :and oriental viewpoints could hardly be illustrated nioco nMr\i- ly than )Jy' tho recent attempt : of that Tokio traffic jwlicemaii to commit sui- cidQ. • ' , This o/ricer wus detailed to route Hie 'Bmixiror ilirohito's e'nUmnige tliroijgh « certain stretch of country. Somehow he made a mistake, Tplfic Ifot tangled, and the emncror's car was delayed ao minuteH. So the iwliceman felt that ho could redeem his honor only by killing himself. Suppose President Roosevelt travels l),v auto, from Washington to Philadelphia and runs into a traffic jam en route; will the traffic cop who should liave prevented the jam put a bullet through his heart' out of sheer chagrin? The mere fact that Ihe question- is uflcrly ridiculous shows iiow greatly the Japanese attitude toward duty, the government, and life iu general differs from our own.
