Maybe the Governor Lacks Friends Here Perhaps we here in Blytheville ought to check our gubernatorial popularity. It seems that we have been slighted In Gov. JIcMath's lengthy list of April phone calls. The latest edition of the Arkansas Recorder, a stnte governmental digest published in Little Rock, reveals that the long distance telephone bill for the governor's office from April 7 to May 6 was a record ?512.G7. This sum was for calls made over the governor's one listed and five unlisted telephones. (The Recorder also pointed out that $4,870.03 of the J6.757.G7 spent to date from the Governor's Office funds has been for phone calls.) Accompanying this information was a list of the calls covered by the ?512 bill. Blytheville didn't make the list. . Only Mississippi County towns listed were Leachville (two calls) nnd Manila (three calls—two collect). Calls to our Craighead County neighbor, Jonesboro, totaled 24. It also was interesting to note that 11 calls were placed during this period to Washington, D.C. We don't comment on these figures simply because \ve begrudge the governor six telephones and a $51G bill. We just feel kind of hurt that Blytheville wasn't on the list of recipients. As long as we're helping pay the phone tab, we can't help but feel Gov. McMath ought to give someone here a ring, loo, once in a while. Just to keep us from getting that left-out feeling. tal. For « fre« paoplt'i capital to serve a» a mecca is a good thing for their faith in liberty and humanity. Rut broad, rolling acres blessed with the rare distinction of the Arlington hills are no longer to be found so close to *>P capital's heart. The growth of Washington in the past two decades has sprinkled thn nearby Maryland and Virginia countryside with homes. To find land both gently beautiful and quietly serene, one must reach farther out from the sprawling city. South along the. widening Potomac ai'e perhaps many spots fitled to serve as the timeless residence of the nation's fallen sons. One in particular that comes to mind is the Maryland bank of the river in the general neighborhood of historic Mt. Vernon, Virginia, Washington's home and itself a national monument. Here the river, curving in wide sweeps amid low ranking hills, lias .surpassing beauty. The green fields and patchworks of woods lend a soft intimacy to the scene. Washington found the glory of this place great, and 200 years have not lessened its charm. Only the experts can say whether this selling meets the technical requirements of a major burial ground. But if it docs, it is hard to imagine a lovelier place to share with Arlington the devotions of n nation as a memorial. A new cemetery in this spot might command a view of the expanse of green lawn descending from Washington's mansion to the Potomac. A fine bridge might be built to carry American pilgrims across the river to the Maryland side. And on some grassy knoll especially blessed with the peace of nature, the tomb for the Unknown Soldier of World War II might be placed. In such n scene as this, tlicva would 1 be no diminishing of the honored glory in which our soldier and sailor heroes now rest in Arlington. Views of Others Operation Dixie Quite some time ago the CIO embarked upon I Us nil out effort to unlonlw the South. Recently we have observed two publications, one representing Inbor and the other management, and it Is Interesting to observe how they are regarding this operation. Mr. Tyre Taylor, general counsel, writing In the Southern States Industrial Council's Bulletin, drclnre.s that although the CIO to boast of "H very friendly gentleman in "the White House" and "to win what it seems to regard as impressive victories elsewhere, 'Operation Dixie' continues to make comparatively little headway." Along this line. William Weiss reports, perhaps, ft little plaintively, in the CIO News: "When a CIO union wins a National Labor Relations Board election in the South, the workers in the plant assume, quite naturally, that tho battle has been won and they will soon get a contract. "With few exceptions, the pattern that follows Is always the same—endless meetings with company representatives who go through the motions of bargaining In order to comply with the provisions of the Tnft-Harlley Law. "There are Instances where companies have stalled negotiations for as long as 10 years while their henchmon did a systematic Job of destroying the union within the mill or plant. Perhaps Dixie wasn't ripe for plucking, as ready to be turned Into the maze of confusion that has resulted from labor mismanagement In New England, for instance, as the 'CIO thought when H embarked upon its ambifious program for the South. —Hocky Mount (N.C.) Telegram America Must Find Fitting Spot for Heroes' Rest With something of a shock we hnve read that Arlington National Cemetery, America's shrine to her fallen soldiers and sailors, is running out of burial space. Within perhaps 20 years, it will no longer be possible to honor the nation's heroes by giving them a resting place in the hallowed green hills overlooking the valley of the Potomac and the city of Washington. So beautiful is tins setting, so entirely suitable is it as a dedicated part of American soil, that it dues not soem right that we must sortie day think of burying our honored dead in other less- favored plols. Ye.t we must do that, and Memorial Day is a fitting lime to talk of it. Recauso Washington itself i s a shrine containing the most celebrated symbols of our history and our freedom, it is probably wise that any new national . burying ground be held close to the capi- SO THEY SAY Price of Liberty Erskine Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD — fNEA) — Kx- •lusively Yours: Hollywood's mi.s- akcii if it thinks "Limelight," due in the screens soon, will be Charcy Chaplin's last movie.

In 1945. eral Electric In charge of labor re- 1fttions, is one ot the key men in the coming knock-down, drag-out battles between unions and management. "There Is no concerted conspiracy on the part of management to hnve a shown-down with labor at (his time," he insists. "If we got all the business lead prs together one room, we couldn't get 'em to agree on even Mother Love. I know, because I've tried it. "All that has happened is that it has suddenly become bad politics to favor the unions exclusively." As the tip-nfT on this, he cites the Peter Kelson One of his first assignments there pro-labor slant. When the President pulled out on C- E. Wilson's terms for a steel settlement he had previously approved, he clinched the case, Boulwnre declares. "For 20 years," he says, "the public has been willing to excuse the excesses of union, law-breakers. The public has also been willine to have the government side with the union loaders." He believes that thp public and the working people still want unions. They want unions in order to mnke the bargaining power of the workmen equal to that of management. its employes. One of the reasons for this, Mr Boulware believes, was that the success of a union leader was often measured by how much he hated the bosses. The man who hated the company most was elected union president. As a counter part to this, it must be mentioned that Mr. Boulware's dislike of some of the union officials he has to deal with could not possibly be more complete and bitter. i » • OUT OF his analysis of employe Al Zugftmith for a new science- fiction movie titled "Space Girl." • * • Hmmmmm Dept.
