A Problem Remains Tho Reel Cross drouth relief prn- gram, in the cour.-'c of which nearly §70,000 lias been spent in the Cliicka- siiwlja district, of Mississippi county lo provicl; tlie necessities of life for some 'J.OOO fiimilie.-i, is jusl jiliont at nil entl. In it souse Liu; eniurguncy is over. Tiic grxv.l majority of lliu.se \vlio rc- i]tiii'til lielp diirinj; tho winter are now at work on the Iniul. Through Hie futl- 'oral governnicnl's drouth relief loans and other sources money lia.s been ob- taincd in anioiints sufficient to culli- vatc iiractkiilly the entire iUTeugc normally devoted to crop production. But while by far llio greater part : of the Cliickasawba district.'* farm population is no longer in nead of as- sistancc, there remain^ a serious problem in some 800 or 1,000 families wilh • neither land to cuHivala nor early prospect of other employment. Among these arc the widows and orphans, the aged, sick, crippled and otherwise economically unlit members of the' popiila- tion, for whom times arc always ditfi- cult and for whom they are particularly hard this year because opportunities for occasional employment are fewer and their, neighbors aiidi relatives are less able to help them than they Jiave been in other y-savs. There arc also in this county several hundred families who came last fall from Tcn- nessec, from Mississippi, and from the hills of Arkansas and Missouri,.,!]! the bilicl" that here they would''lihd ''opportunities to earn money picking cotton u\<\ at'olhcr work. After a few \veeki of cotton picking they found thomselvea destitute and stranded, ds- pcr.dent upon charity here and without means of returning to their homes. Many of them ar-s still here, landless, jobless, pennyless. Another cla-s of persons left in a precarious situation by the ending of the Red Cross relief program is the large group, most numerous in Blytheville and in and about Manila, who in other years have earned their livelihood in the mills, at woods work, or at various forms of day labor. The closing down of some wood working plants here and at Manila, and the reduction of scheduler, by others, coupled with a rather gnieral cutting down of opportunities for occasional employment in OUT OUR WAY all lines, have left many of these people without opportunity for earning a living. A few months hence, when the cotton chopping season opens and the cunning factory commences its season's run, thfi situation will bi 1 improved, bill diirinij' April and .May a serious problem will exist. Early in thj winter it was the hope of Judge Harrison that the turnback to the county of highway 1'iimU would make possible a road construction and maintenance program tlial would give employment to many. Thai hope was blasted by the chtusti in the turnback law which diverts most of Mississippi county's share of the money to paying debts of Osccola district road improvement districts. Mississippi county has already been nlloUcd §02,52'!.(50 of its estimated $r!(>,0()0 share of the turnback, but every rent of the ?5'2,02-1 has gone to pay improvement district bonds and interest, leaving nothing to be spent for relief of unemploy- mcnl and improvement of our roads. About, all that remains to b? said is thai wo keep in our minds that human being;) cannot and will not be permitted to starve, The Red Cross has fed a large part of our population through the hard months of winter. If that orgunixalion, r/;ganl,iiy.f its iturt of the task us completed, sees lit to withdraw its help, the community will have to undertake to meet the situation. The best way to do this is by providing employment. There is an opportunity to get long postponed jobs of till kinds taken care of now at a minimum cost. Money etui be saved and it community i. service rrdered by cleaning up and re- . pairing our premises, by making improvements that will be both necessary and expensive when the business pendulum, already swinging toward prosperity, registers the certain" reaction from the recent period of depression. the lx-st of conditions and get ri SIDE GLANCES % George Clark ISJSeWaSSt BE SURE YOU'RE .. __ i creased through drinking large I i <s3«^»«^H^^^«na^«^™ creased through drinking amounts of water.
