As 100 workers prepared to canvass the business district liere tomorrow in an crCort to obtain S2500 °W for supervisors mul for equipment. Die voiced approval project: " following lenders of the proposed Chester cnlclwel), president or the Lions Club, Indicated that tlie first thing presented lo that'club after his installation as president was the playground program. The approval was not only unanimous, but it was enthusiastic'. Arter tlie meeting many were heard- lo remark, 'That sounds like the best thing that has been started; in Mylbe- ville in many a day.", county Judge Roland Green, in whose court many delinquent children and youths are-brought said "I am thoroughly in accord with the playground program. I wish such a program had been slarled five years ngo. I think this will definitely help prevent delinquency." Jim Terrell, Kiwanis Club, said "I am 100 per cent for the playground program.-The-,whole club is enthusiastic about It. Our committee Is ready (o go. out and help raise the-money necessary to make the prgoram possible." Mis.-, lone George, president of the Bu^lncs. 1 ; and Professional Women's Club, says the matter of supervised playgrounds had been discussed by the club and the mem- '«k\ ers are '"S'l'y in favor of such a .•program. She says they will co- N i operate in every possible way. Dr. W. A. Grimmett, Commander of the Dud Cason Post, American Legion, said. "I presented It to the tcion Post, which endorsed it completely, and I supported it. ns a member of the Kiwanis Club. I have fotiht for Ihe program all (he way through," U. S. Branson, president or the Rotary club, said, "I heartily endorse, the program for playground supervision. It is typical of the progressive spirit of Blytheville and prove to be very should be supported both morally and financially by every citizen." The Rev. s. B. Wilted, president of the Blytheville Protestant Ministers Association, and the ministers of Blytheville have looked forward to such a program for years. "We do not expect a playground program' to be a cnre-all/But we do believe it will lielp the homes, the churches, nrxj the schools in the development of character in the youth that participate in the program," said Rev. Wilford. Mrs. w. L. Homer, president of the Junior-Senior Parent-Teachers Association said; "It is said that Children 'are the greatest casualty ™ the war, caused by disrupted homcWe and lack of adult leadership. The Junior-Senior PTA is interested, in a definite recreational program tor the children and heartily endorse this projecl." Mrs. C. G. Redman, president of Ihe Woman's Club, "We have discussed the need for such a pro- ram at meetings and do thoroughly approve. The Association can count on us for fullest cooperation."

E. Baker. President of the Sudbury Parent-Teacher Association, and Mrs. Cody Eaton, President of Lang Parent-Teacher Association, could not be reached for a statement, but it is known that each of these leaders and their organizations are heartily in favor of the playground program. t Jiinnrie Smotherman, president ol a Junior Chamber of Commerce said "all the Jaycees are fully behind the playgrounds program and we will do all we can to make it a success." J. Paul Pryor, president of the Chamber of Commerce said: "It is n good thing for the town. Every BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS EDSON IN WASHINGTON Listen, Some Republican lly I'KTKR KDSON Courier News Washington Correspondent The mystery is why some smart ric|iiibllcan, or even just some He- publican, hasn't come along lo lick Ihis Roosevelt administration solely on Us record In the handling of labor matters. No other should be needed, for ,.„ now stand a case" can be made by later, by management ami by the public Ihtit these policies (a) do labor no good, tb) do management no good, and (c) clo the public no good. Yes, It is admitted immediately that labor unions have made great gains In organisation, that wage payments have been Increased (on borrowed money), that war. production has been tremendous, and lluit manpower and time lost through strikes have been held down to an average of a fraction of l per cent. But where are we now? Echo answers, right straight up In the air. What good there'Is In today's labor and production situation is more at- Iribulablc to the natural ''patriotic Instincts o( the people-as a'; whole than It is lo any .brilliance : iu/gov- ernment handling of .these matters. Take a look at the delays in case? before National Lubor Relations Board, Wai 1 Labor Bo.ird and other government 1 agencies charged' wltli these matters. Take this strike of the Foremen's Association In the Detroit area. Tlie foremen have thus far caught all the blame for Interfering ivJlli war production, but they have been trying for two months to get their case handled by Ihe' government, and only alter they .struck did they get from, the government the attention they,were entitled lo'In the first place. '• : A STKIKB BV GOVERNMENT AGENCIES Furthermore,, the "foremen had been trying ror much more than two months to gel their case heard by their employers.' Top 'management refused to talk wltli them In every plant except Ford, and lop management still refuses to talk wlthiheui Why, therefore, isn't this as 1 much of a strike by responsible government agencies und by management as it is a strike by the foremen? And if the government can order the foremen hack to work-before their case Is settled, why shoiildiv't government also order nianfigemeiH lo deal with tlie'foremen?''Maybe there is .as much bad management nnd bad government jn tlils as there Is bad unionism.' " "- V • Take the Big Steel case/now before a special panel -prthe War ~ ' will doubtless worth-while." W. B.

Tel. 453 Walnut at 5th Is supposed to be In effect an Agreement by (he unions not to strike: This no-strike pledge w'us reaffirmed by the Sleelworkcrs ul their annual convention in Cleveland a Jew days ago MOIti: THAN ONE A DAY AT U. S. STl'l-I, Yet look ul ihc slrlki- records of Ihe United Slates Steel Corporation nlono for die first four months of the year.

Tola! man-hours of productive labor lost by these disturbances was 54!),33G, total steel tonnage production lost was 223,tl22, This is a greater number .of work stoppages thnn the corporation had for Uie full years of either 1<H2 or 10-13. Causes of the stoppages since Jan. l were 88 disputes over wages, live over hours, 81 over working conditions umi 13 over miscellaneous gi ievmices. That record Is bud unionism and irresponsible unionism and there Isn't'.anything else you cnn call If Management can't do its Jol) if every ,dny somebody lias to stop a strike. The' goal in all this turmoil, whether caused by bad government bad,'management or bud labor, is the long-suifering public Interest Returning, to the original premise, an administration labor program thnl resulls in these ends isn't doing Its jpb. Allies Hold 7-Day Edge In Weather Prediction CHICAGO (UP)—The Allies will go into Ihe invasion of Europe ivilh a-'seven-day advantage over the Gentians in weather prediction, according to Dr. Harold Ward, ireallj- er expert njul professor of geology and . geography .at Northwestern University.
