A National Problem. The 'declaration by Senator Bennett Champ Clark of Missouri before the •Mississippi valley iiood control conference at St. Louis a few duys ago that flood control'is "a matter of vital n«' tional necessity andean only be dealt •with upon that basis" is so obviously true with respect to ureat rivers like the Ohio and the Mississippi as to require no argument. It is equally if not so selt'-ovidently true '.with respect to lesser rivers like our own St. Francis. For it is from r small streams that the water conies which creates great Hoods oil great rivers. Furthermore the problems involved in control of floods on many small rivers, the St. Francis among them, ,are of an interstate nature. Neither-the localities immediately affected by ~floods, on the St. Francis and its tributariVs. nor the state of Arkansas could deal cft'celivoly with them, oven had they unlimited financial resources. The floods -orit'iiiate in another state and must bu dealt with there before the com'munilius ' along the lower reaches of thu river can he secure. 'Die congress, realizing that (he • problem is a national one, has authorized a comprehensive federal: program for control of [ho S(. Francis. But it : has left lo local interests' the • proviil- •ing of rights of way,for, (.he• iicccs- 'sary levees, floudways "and otlior, toii- r trol works. At first appraisal tW seems reasonable enough. There is nothing -wrong in principle with requiring some local participation in tho cost of such an unvlertaking. Unfortunately, however, in actual practice'such a requirement is likely to result in indefinitely delaying vitally essential work. That seems to bu the case with the St. Francis project.' Seme of the communities in which'/ I'ighfof way is needed simply arc without the financial resources to provide it. Others cannot see that the iindeV- inlnng promises benefits to them in proportion to the contributions that are asked of them. For these and other reasons effective control of Howls on -, the St. Francis remains almost as far from.realization as it was w hen thp Rrojecl was first !iutliori/.u ( | by congress. There is now pending j n congress a measure to provide for thc r wlcru i pm ._ chase of rights of way .for projects that are part of the federal Hood control program. It is not hard to /inr! plausible arguments on which to bas'i^ objections to such a proposal. But they won't stand up against thc hard reality that there doesn't seem to be any other way of going ahead with essential work. UEsAi-, MAucif io, 1937. An Objcci Lesson The seizure of thc munitions-laden freighter Mar Cantabrieo by a Spanish rebel cruiser ought to help us to understand tho value, of a strong neutrality law. The Mar Cimfaljuco cleared from an American port, laden with American- inadc munitions, just before our munitions embargo law went into effect. There will be no more such shipments ; the Mar Cantabrieo did not fly the American flag; title to the goods s lie carried hud passed [ 0 foreign purchasers before she left our shores Because of these facts, the stea'mer's loss does not aiiect us. But suppose that there were no embargo law. Suppose that rebel cruisers werp, -seizing two .or throe munitions carriers a week— American-Hag .ships bearing goods whose loss would hit the pockels of American shippers Is it not <M«$ fo. see 'how very apt 'we H'ouhl be, lo become involved in the &pa»wh war?
