'--. A Good Impression If the AAA tom-isl bureau directors took with them a favorable impression of Blythevillc whcii they loft for the north Sturdily moniifig—nwl if they didn't they arc a graceful' and accomplished lot . of prevaricators- credit is due largely to Crawford Noble, who entertained them In a Way, we venture to Kay, that did not suffer by any comparison they chose to make with the hospitality extended thoni elsewhere. Mi-. Noble was inspired in his efforts, it is reasonable lo imagine, by motives not entirely unselfish.' It is his business to make the hotel for which he is responsible a successful institution from a business standpoint and certainly one way of contributing to that end is to make n favorable impression upon a group of visitors whose work in lif? is the routing of tourists* \ t Most of us who give more \-6f^ less time and effort to the promotion-' o't .what we regard us the welfare of Bly".- theville have a similar motive. „ We !II3' want to help the community because we know that is one way of helping ;." ourselves. Mr. Noble, in our opinion, is doing his part in excellent style. ; His institution is the one with which -•- many visitors to this city make their i— principal contact. It leaves a good hn- ~^ {jjression that cannot"help'*bUt be-'ve- >.-^» Vl fleeted in their feeling'toward-t^e/cily- '!': -as a whole.'i lie 'is doing a good job ~ and the. whole town benc!Hs as a result. Popular Plan Oregon's Senator Slciwcr has proposed a constitutional amendment for which some very cogent arguments might easily be made. • His amendment would provide for the nomination of presidential and vice presidential candidates by popular vole. Under that system, the job of a national political party convention would consist merely of writing a platform and rubber stamping the nominations made by the voters. .' The amount of horse-trading, thimble-rigging, and plain and fancy conniving which such''a system would abolish is something to think about. So, too, is the way in which it would compel each candidate to declare him- self, well in advance, on the issues of Hie clay. It would end the old game of playing it safe, keeping quiet, and refusing to make enemies, and it ought to make the nomination of. presidential candidates much more I'c.sponsivc to the popular will. It looks, in short, like an exceedingly sensible Amendment. Comeback Tactics In his 73-year-old aunt, whom he once banished from Spain, ex-King Alfonso apparently has a sturdy protagonist At least she has demanded that he be restored to the Spanish throne. The king has given nearly ?10,000,000 to aid the insurgent cause, she points out, and should be returned to liis throne "as a reward for what he has done." If the insurgents finally win> Alfonso may recover his crown. But if he does, it is doubtful if he will find the fruits of his victory to be sweet. A monarch who has helped one side, or. another to continue a war that drenches his country in blood certainly is hot one who merits, or will get, the undivided loyalty and affection of his subjects. An unselfish leader, one who loved the land of his fathers, would have tried without stint to end the dreadful conflict. Cany On Until recently, most well-informed Americans supposed that medical science had finally "conquered" yellow fever. Beginning with .Gorgns, Reed, and their conferees in Havana, science had shown that the disease was trans-' niittcd solely by one particular species of mosquito, called auges acgypti; as this obnoxiotis pest was brought under control, yellow" fever was sure to vanish. The'annual report of the Rockefeller Foundation, however, reveals that the picture is.'notVso,, rosy. For it has been-discovered tliat yellow fever can and does occur in regions where aedes aegypti has never appeared. Vast areas of South Almoncan jungle arc centers of the disease, and some entirely new villain must be sought. ' There arc no brighter chapters in all medical hirttory- than those which tell of its light with yellow fever. It may be discouraging to learn that the fight has not yet been won, but has merely entered a new phase. And yet, in view of past performances, who can tloubt that medical science will lind the brains, the courage, and the stick-to-itiveness to carry on until the victory is final? H 'has healn been proven that when representatives of workers and employers agree to get together In conference lo discuss their dir- fcrcnces across the table, fnlr and reasonable agreement can tc reached. —Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins, commenting on the CIO- Chvyslcr pact.

(To PC Continued) 10 Years Ago Froin (he Files of the Blytheville Courier News Head Courier News Want Ads Tuesday, April 10, 1!K7 MEMPHIS—The entire St. Francis river basin of southeast Missouri and nortlieast Arkansas was doomed to inundation today when the St. Jo'nns barou levcs. eight miles north of New Madrid, Mo., broke under the pressure of floods early today. The breach in the St. Johns bayou levee was a mils wide. It will permit Ihe overflow from the Alis'-issippi river at the Dorenii crevasse, further north, to sweep southward toward Big Lake. James Walker, a pioneer citizen of Huffman, came to town this morning over what he said were the worst roads that he had ever traveled upon during his 24 years at Huffman. He left home at 5:30 on horseback and. making as fast progress as possible, reached this city after 9 o'clock. "Old timers" in Blytheville challenge the prediction of Mcmpihs river men that Osceola, Wilson and other towns in this immediate territory will be flooded as a result of fhe New Madrid crevasse. An engineer had to stand in a foot of svater in the restaurant at Pettyville today to communicate with the Courier News: The water of Big Lake is failing as a result of four breaks in the levee but the water over the mainland Is risinj and is approaching Dell.
