City May Well Eye Use of VHQ Buildings Judson Hqut, who is mayor of Newport and who purchased the buildings of the Veterans Housing Quarters, conies to Blytheville highly-recommended by those who know him in Newport. Knowing but little of what Hout intends to do with the buildings he purchased, we think it advisable that caution be taken with any permits issued in connection with locating these structures within the city limits. It is Hoiit's intention to rework the buildings and sell them as small homes. It is our understanding this has been done satisfactorily in other eastern Arkansas towns. However, -19 buildings, originally constructed for only temporary use, could, if crowded together within the city, produce an undesirable housing situation. We doubt this is Hout's intention if he stays here to follow through on his original plan, but, still assuming there can he many a slip between cup and Up, we commend to the city and the Planning Commission an air of alertness to care for a situation which will be very easy to prevent, but most dificult to eliminate, once it exists. Helping Hand Needed The United States is about to have its first visit from President Carlos Castillo Armas of Guatemala, which a year ago was in the news as a small Communist hotspot in the Western Hemisphere. Castillo Armas is coming here for economic talks with business and financial leaders in New York and lop government officials in Washington. Undoubtedly the question of more and bigger U. S. aid will be upper most on the agenda. The Guatemalan president was the military hero of the 1!)54 revolt which threw out the previous Red-tinged government and put the little Central American country firmly in the Western camp. It's fair to ask on the occasion of this visit how he has been running Guatemala since his heralded triumph in the field. In the view of Daniel James, a Latin- American specialist, who was there but a few months back, the answer is that Castillo Armas is now doing pretty well. After a very shaky start, featuring minor rebillion and widespread dissatisfaction, the country has begun to move toward stability. Labor, which grumbled at first when the old Communist-led unions were dissolved has regained most of its former guarantees and is in a happier frame of mind Most of th« big unioni h»v« b«en , to good effect. Agaraian reform has been launched. Castillo Armas has made certain distributions of land to Guatemalans from parcels donated by such large holders as the United Fruit Co. Guatemalan businessmen have taken heart from signs of growing stability, and are beginning to take their money out of hiding. Here and there a manufacturer is expanding. James observes that the United States, which is credited with a key role in the revolt itself, is also responsible for much of the country's improvement. We have extended Point Four type technical assistance, offering both money and expert guidance. Private American firms are contributing to the picture. United Fruit has a plan to spend 25 million dollars to rehabilitate disease-ridden banana lands on Guatemala's east coast. Pan American World Airways expects to put up a new hotel in Guatemala City. A utility affiliated with a large American concern is ready to spend 17 million dollars on new energy capacity. This 'doesn't mean Guatemala's troubles are over. The worst seems to be a shortage of corn. Speculation is also a problem. But, according to James, there is real reason for optimism today. Since that appears to be the story, the requests for help which Castillo Armas will make deserve the most respectful and earnest study by American officials and businessmen. Grabbing Guatemala from the Reds was a modest but significant victory. Having helped to gain it for the West, we cannot let it slide backward through neglect. We must continue to take a lead role in making it into an enclave of real strength and a visible proof of the advantages of the free way of life. VIEWS OF OTHERS There's Still Hope Grumbling over today's high prices is pretty common. When we see that the index o! consumer prices — that magic figure generally called the cost of living — stands at 271 as compared with the 1813 base level of 100, we tend to hit the ceiling. But we would be mistaken if we thought all the increase has come in recent years or that we face a future without hope of declining prices. The truth is ever since 1913, the year economists have picked for comparative purposes, the cost of living trend has been generally upward. Not once in the 42 years since has it even approached the base figure*. By 1916. it was up to 110 and World War I shortage sent it up to 203 in 1920. From that point, It began a gradual decline to a 1933 depression low of 131. but still 30 per cent higher than it was 20 years before. The climb has been steady since 1940 when it stood at 142. Wartime price controls'held It fairly well in check. By 1945. the index had risen to 182. becoming 197 in 1946 and Jumping to 226 in 1947 with postwar relaxation of controls. There was a precipitate climb after 1950, when it stood at 243. to the level of 271 in 1954. "Yet it would be a mistake lo conclude that there is a natural and continuous tendency for prices to rise and that it Is 'contrary to nature' to hope for stable or falling prices in the future." the National Association of Manufacturers says. "Actually, all increase in the price level since 1820 can be accounted for by rises which o •• irred in four brief periods overlapping our major wars'. 1861 to 1865, 1915 to 1920. 1940 to 1948 and 1950 to 1952. These periods represent, in total, only 19 of the 134 years between 1820 and 1954. For the remaining 115 years, price trends were steady, declining or recovering gradually from a previous decline ... "The record demonstrated there is no hist- torlcnl tendency for prices to rise continuously. If we can avoid the fiscal and monetary mistakes which were made in our past wars — and if we can avoid making any new policy mistakes — there is no need to accopt future inflation as inevitable." Well, of course, that is equivalent to saying if we are sqtart enough lo stay out of trouble, we won't get into trouble. We may be able to do it, at Uiat. — Jackson (Miss.) State Times.

JORDAN', M.D. A young woman of 28 with two children says that she is constantly fatigued. Although, she has not lost any weight and the doctor cannot find anything specifically wrong she just drags herself around and must always retire early. She would like any suggestions as she is at her "wits end." This question of chronic fatigue is a difficult one. If it comes early in life, as it has to this young mother, when there are many calls on the strength, it can be a pretty serious matter. It is true, ol course, that most of us get overtired from time to time. This can oe ascribed to not • , - p i enough sleep, overdoing of some;3Orery nay kind, or bad dietary habite and ~ can usually be remedied by more sleep, a vacation, or some similar simple means. When a physical cause for fatigue cannot be found, the simple steps should be taken first. One should experiment witb trying to find the proper balance between work, recreation, and sleep. When the fatigued person Is employed, however, change of occupation does not often appear to be successful. One of the things that many of us have to learn Is how to relax when we have the chance. This principally training. which may be discovered. Those who are abnormally tired should first review and study the kind of life they are leading to make sure that they cannot solve the problem themselves.
