Hurting Arkansas Business A local commission ajrenl for one <>!' the V\K oil companies reports that of 23 dealers which he has in Blylhc- villc and vicinity one, place of business is situated just across the stale lines, soils halt us much gasoline as the other 22 lojfeUuT. 01 her wholesalers of gasoline undoubtedly could make similar report:*. The U-cent Arkansas gasoline lax • hiis created such a differential in Arkansas .and ^Missouri gasoline prices that many residents of tins city are saving pennies (about S5 of them to a 10-gnllon tanliful) by buying Iheir Kfts outside tho stale. Tourists, southbound, are gelling into the habit of filling up -just before they enter Arkansas. The. situation is not a good one for Blythevillc business, nor for the ntate of Arkansas. Gasoline purelmses by Arkansas residents in Missouri do not heli/) to build 1 'Arkansas roads. It would be a good thing for Blytbeville, fliid perhaps good business for the slate iiijfhway depurlmenl as well, if recognition could'be given the fact thai lliis is a border city and Hint il is both unfair and unwise to handicap Arkansas business thnt has oul-of-slatc competition only a. i'c\v minutes drive away. by the treaty of Versailles They are not staggered even by the idea that this might plunge their country onto more into war. Tile Communists are all for creating in Germany a nice version of tlic Bolo paradise right near their borders. They, loo, liave a contempt for written treaties. They, too, denounce Iho bunions imposed by "eapitidiilie" countries. lu ordinary times, the appeal of nmdmcn of llic right and of the left would make small impression upon the bulk of Hit; stcutlygoiiig Germans. Hut those, are not ordinary times in Germany. Her business is badly crippled. Her financial burdens are enormous. Her tiixes are slaggerihjr. Her uncm- pbymoji.ti lisls lire, t'lionnoiis. Hc-r middlt! class is being ground between 'tho upper ami the nullier millslon.s. In their despair at condition?, not only the young and thoughtless, but even somo of Ihe .soberer cleim'iiU of tlu- fommunily are (timing either to (ho swastika cross of llitlrr, or tins red banner of the Communists. Kvery election lately has told the same tak>. And this is not only a danger to Germany ilsclf, but it direct menace to the peace' of Kiirope. The Gentian cabinet, the more moderate German press and some of her leading statesmen are asking tin; countries, which won the war, to try to ameliorate the conditions imposed upon their nation. It is not a false cry Ihey are uttering. II is the simple truth. H will lest the statesmanship of tho other big European powers. There is grave danger that Germany may once more reach the exploding point. — Alilioii Hronner.

"The moikrnlc vmlilieal parties in Germany, who want lo build up their great nation in the freedom of republican institution?, find themselves menaced at Hie same time by the extremists of 1 the right—the Ililler- ilcs—and the extremists of the left— the Communists.

Dr. G. II. Moore, who operated on Karl Mussulman, in Philadelphia the other day, did more than open the eyes of the 22-year-old youth who had been born blind. He showed the rest of us, who 'have a habit of looking at things without sec- ing them, just what we are missing. iMtixsclmaii is eager lo start lo see. He has an enchanted world before him.
