A Close One An election so closu Unit the oulcuiiu! depends upon a score or so of iibscnlct; ballots is not a very satisfactory ail';iir from most standpoints, but at loust Hie principal contestants [lolled enough votes that neither need feel humiliated at the outcome. As this is written the indications arc that our mayor has sijiienked through. His apparent plurality may or may not stand up. Ju any case it docs not seem on its frice to he a very impressive endorsement of a man seeking his seco'iul term, but appearances are deceiving, and we do not think Mayor Kcccl needs to feel. ashanicd of the vote he received.

This writer, personally, felt that Mr. Fail-field would do - a better one, but that does not imply - any idea of civic tragedy should his indicated defeat be confirmed as it may be by the time this- gets into print. An unfortunate aspect of city and county political contests is that they sometimes engender bitterness that does not disappear with the rendering of the decision at the polls, and adversely affects the co-operation of all elements of the community in matters of common interest.

A Plan For Our Vitgin Isles Commenting on the imiwverisliment in the Virgin Islands, which he recently visited, President. Hoover declared, "Viewed from every point, except remote naval contingencies, it is unfortunate that we ever acquired these islands." And perhaps Virgin Islanders are just as sorry us the president that the United States ever made the purchase. Since we took possession of this little trio of islands in the Caribbean 14 years ago, their prolititble rum business has been ruined by the Volstead act and their commerce hampered by our stripping regulations. As a consequence thousands of natives have left the islands, and they arc worse off economically than they were under -Danish control. Hut it is ti mistake to assume that we can do nothing in restoring, in some measure, the prosperity they once enjoyed. The natural charm of the islands, which have been called "The Gardens of Eden of the Caribbean," suggests, for one thing, that we might develop them as a resort. It would require no superhuman effort on the part of the government to lure some of the thousands of Americans who travel to IkTinuda, Cuba and Panama to . the tropical playground ' which really belongs to them. As one ^writer described them, the islands comprise "the loveliest playground in the world. The tiny islands with their brilliant flowers' and fragrant forests, glow like jewels in the blue of the Caribbean, each in a setting of sparkling white beaches and bays shirnniEr- ing emerald and sapphire by turn. The Virgin Islands are fairy isles, homes of romance, basking in the lazy sun of the tropics." As poor an investment as tlis §25,000,000 we paid for the islands may now, seem, there iq no denying they have possibilities as an all-year-round rc.surt. It is a lamentable fact that this paradise must be called the poorhouse of the Caribbean. The Scotch juc sometimes charitable. They ofirn give ihelr word.
