To Protect School Income Steps have been taken in two Arkansas counties to correct an injustice in out' present laws under which school districts of the slate have sulfered substantial losses. As things now stand when delinquent, lands arc cerlilied lo .the slate and redeemed or sold through the state land office, the (axes which are paid in redemption are lost to the school district for which they were levied. Miss Winnie V. Turner, Mississippi county examiner, lias been advised by J. V. Satlcrlield jr., malinger of the Arkansas Municipal Bond Bureau «t Little Rock, that a remedy for this situation has been found in hoc and Miller counties. He writes: "To overcome this loss of revenue, suits have been brought in Lee county and also in Miller county, Arkansas, tins yenr, which have successfully restrained the clerks from certifying delinquent lands to the state. By these suits redemptions will be handled within the county and the taxes paid in redeeming the land will go to the school districts and other county agencies for which the taxes were originally levied." The widespread tax delinquency which has resulted from the difficult . economic conditions of recent years makes this a matter of vital impor: . tauce to the schools 'Of Mississippi '." cqjinty ~aii(1 probably, to of all / other Arkansas counties. If the expected improvement in farm, prices and business activity is realized the next year'or two will see redemptions on n large scale. Any possible action to retain for local use the revenue from such redemptions should be taken. The Price of Gold Removal by the administration of restrictions on the purchase and sale of gold ought to open the way not merely for inflation, should that prove essential to the success of the recovery program, but for real stabilization of our currency, which in the, long run is more important. Frank Jones, president of the Trojan Oil and Gas company, in a letter urging a free gold market, said a few days ago: "The great majority of our people JUT OUR WAY \eern to lliink (hat for some mysterious reason, which they cannot explain, gold has- a lixcd value and is the only real meiistire of value. If they could actually six; the value of gold fluetn- atq in tlii' miivkel like values of other metals n iitl commodities, many of them would liu iilile fo see the point."

Casio, president-elect of the American DcnUI Association, predicts that the toothache will be pruclically unknown in another hundred years. The science of preventive dentistry is advancing so fast, and people are gelling so \wll educated to its advantages, that few leclli will ever reach Ihe stage in which they give: pain. All of lliis is a very glittering and attractive sort of picture, surely; and it leads one to speculate idly un the attitude our grandchildren will have when they look back at the conditions under which we are living today. Wo ourselves look back at' Klb.u- bethan times and wonder how oil earth people ever endured the manifold discomforts and physical inconveniences of that era; and, by the same token, we thank our slars that we live in a more enlightened age. May not our grandchildren, rending of the torments we suffered from aching teeth, wonder how we ever put up with such things. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Confidence Is Needed ' If the NKA program now being attempted does no more than create an attitude of public confidence in a business revival, it will do a great deal to make such a revival an actual fact. Gen. Hugh S. Johnson reminds us of this fact, by implication, in stating that one of the big needs of the day is a further loosening of commercial credit facilities. There is still a "holdover timidity" from, the depression . period, and it has operated to keep credit more constricted than should be the case. '• "1 do not believe you can get extension of credit by fiat," he remarks. "You have to establish this l>;isis of I'ailh and confidence firsl, and that is what we are trying as hard as we know how to do." If the Nil A program can re-establish this confidence, it will have helped us a long way back toward full recovery. BLYTHEVILLE 10 YEARS AGO Fkvm the Ale* of Ike BlyUurilie Dally C*«rl« Tuesday.

It would look as though I wer« afraid to face the consequences ot my carelessness." Dick did not answer. He left the iinrlment, shutting tho door behind him with unnecessary empire- is. Arrived tt tlio office, Evo was ; till unable to account for tho fact that she had fmind tin copy for the Times' advertisement underneath the hlotter on her .desk too "'(tht before. "1 have it!" exclaimed Arlc'ne "Her puzzlins over the mystery, "Mona Allen!" "Dm why should she do a thing like that?' 1 asked Eve, "Hccause you and I had timo off to go to Marya'3 wedding and she hart to stay here and work." "Oh, I'd bate to'think anyone could be like that!" Eva protested "Have it your own way then,' declared Arlone, 'but I've got that girl's number! Let's not say any thing about ' It to her but darned careful what we let her i awny with in tlio future.

Her special columil after- the first few weeks, had bi;' come more a. burden than a pl< ure. This was partly because novelty uad worn off and partly bi;t cause her increased duties and r<] sponsihilities left her less time fo'f the column. ' "I haven't a single Idea thH-1 morning!" she admitted to hei'l self, and then found her cntir.l outlook changed by a note on hc.J desk. Barnes had taken an earl, J morning train and would be absen'l for two days, leaving Eva respoiisii bis for the ndvertisins (icpartnicn'l during lliat time Eve's spirits lifted and she wen \ about her duties with new Interest'] After the early morning routin sras dispatched she waat to loo at some nigs that had just com mrst into hysterical tears.

It isn't necessary for me to ay here and let Barnes work off is sarcasm on me." Tho advertising manager's irrl- ation had transferred ilselt to ve and that night, because she as tired, she gave vent to her iscontent before Dick. As sho took ff her French heeled slippers to ut on a pair of mules she flung no slipper across the room. It was nintcntional but tho slipper nocked over a delicate amethyst lass perfume hottle, spilling ils ontents of the Tug. Dick made no comment. He I'iped up tho perfume and picked P the broken hits o£ glass as Eve 10 asked, "What's the matter with ou, Evo?" "I'm just tired," she sobbed. Tired to death!" - "Um-m! I was afraid you'd get Ms -way. Well—we'll see that this oesn't happen again." 'What did he mean, Evo asked herself wildly. She was not going o give up her career just because Earl Barnes had worked himself nto a frenzy over a disruption of he office routine. ,..,J^,-, TiHE next morning Eve left for •"• ifork witU a heavy heart.
