Our School Finances Objection to the plan to raise 510,000 by private subscription to insure full term operation of the Blytlieville schosl system next year has been mado on the ground that it provides no solution to OKI problem, but would leave I be necessity of raising ;t similar or larger fund the year following ami indefinitely thereafter. This objection lias not come from those merely looking for an excuse to refuse to bear their part of a public burden, but from men who rccogni/c that the financial difficulties of our schools will never bo eliminated until fundamental defects in our taxation and assessment methods arc cured. There is nothing to prevent our subscribing the money to meet next year's deficit, Vhilc'at.the same lime taking the necessary steps to insure adequate tax revenues for future yours, but if, as opponents of the subscription plan declare, nothing but actual closing of the schools can arouse the public to the necessity of equalizing assessments and possibly scaling them upward, then the sooner that crisis is reached and passed the better off we will be. ' Peace and Prosperity In urging curtailment of armaments as part of a program for the restoration of prosperity President Hoover, it is pointed out by the Arkansas Gazette, fails to consider that, so far at least as this country is concerned, the burden of preparation for possible future wars is extremely light compared to that of paying the bill for past •wars. A world wide program of arms limitation, says the Gazette, might permit us to cut as much as 5-100,000,000 from the §820,000,000 war and navy department estimate for 1032, but would afford no relief at all from the §1,892,033,000 chargeable to the military activities of the past. NeverlhclpSA the president is on sound ground. Disarmament implies peace. \Ye may not be able to cure our present troubles by cutting down military expenditures, but if we can avoid war in the future we will avoid not only future debt and pension burdens, but will also escape the disruption OUT OUR WAY of our economic slrucUirc which Uie abnormal activity essential lo ;i greut win- always involves, iiml which beyond doubt has bean largely re.s|)onsil>lc for the present unscUloil conililion of business in this country »'«! throughout the world. It is not thnt uilher military "expenditures or the cIVi'cls til' the war are fumlnmenliil in the iiruscnt situation. It goes much (lceper~.'<ii much deeper that some economists see in thc waste of war the only puxiibilky of the kind of prosperity this country enjoyed in the decade recently endett. It is desirable to eliminate the waste of war and of preparation for war. But to enjoy the benefits which such saving should briiiB we must also free our economic system from dependence upon thc stimulation of destruction and waste for the activity that means prosperity. SIDE GLAJNGES By George Clark Cotton Consumption-Conscious The movement lo popularize ana promote the use of cotton In the South Is rapidly spreading. Flvo hundred cullon carnivals nrc (o be held in various Southern titles in the next several weeks, according to a report from the "Wear Cotton" headquarters at Cinslonia, N. C., where the first, of these festivals »as held this iprlnj. "Wear Cotton Campaigns" are gaining In tn- vor and arc a move In the right direction to make tl'.e South cotton consumption-conscious. In the past the South has put all Its thought and elfort Into cotton .proilu 1 lion. Profitable production requires an adequate market, Cotton dress goods, cotton for household use, for Industrial purposes, for packaging an:l wrapping commodities, nnd cotton covering in place of Julc for the cotton bale ns.-ctl lo be popularized and more widely used by Southern people. Containers (or fertiliser, cottonseed meal. Hour, sugar, potatoes, feedstuff, cement, and practically every sacked commodity the Southern fiirmcr buys should be of cotton. As the Manufacturers Itccord has repeatedly emphasized, the Southern cotton farmer is himself most derelict; he continues to employ Jute basclna; from India lo bale ihe cotton he yrows. If collou were used In place of all the Jute Imported Into Ihe Unllccl aiates, it Is estimated that domestic cotton consumption would be increased by at least 3,000,000 bales a year. The consideration of wlmt such an increase in consumption would mean in raising the level of cotton prices, visualizes Ihe direct benefit lo every cotton grower nnd lo the South at large. Cotton bags for cottonseed meal would add 50,000 bales annually to cotton consumption, and commercial fertilizer used in the South would require another 100,000 bales. Tlie Augusta Chronicle points out that siisar —one of the principal crops in the Gulf Slates- is now sold in cotton sacks from live pounds up, nnd one prominent sugar refinery in Hie South is said lo consume 50.000,000 yards ol cotton cloth a year for this purpose. The Chronicle feels that every cotton manufacturer, banker, cotton dealer, merchant, nnd the Southern people generally should more seriously enter into the movement lo promote the use cf cotton. Augusta is to staj; a "Wear More Cotton Campaign" the week beginning May 18. In the past, cotton manu.'aclurers have (lane practically nothing toward advertising their product. They have largely depended on others lo create business for I'nem, while competitive urcducis were being widely advcrllscd and their use enormously increased. We believe the time is opportune for Southern cotton mills to con- duel- nu aggressive and intelligent advertising • campaign to create a greater demand throughout Ihe country lor cotton goods. —Manufacturers Record.

Samuel Gompcrs, president oi the American Federation of Labor. «;nt an appeal by cable to thc executive committee of the Council cf Workmen's and Soldiers' Delegates at Petrogrart af- lc-r Hie czar had been overthrown. The appeal said hi parl: "The gravest crisis in the world's history is now hanging in the balance and the course which Russia will piirr.ue may have a tcnr.min^ i;i£lt:ciice Vihelhcr democracy or autocracy shall prevail.. ..New :ha'.

John got drunk that night and sbot Jim. Dying, Jim it his pistol and killed John. Such is the background of the war between capital nnd labor in Harlan couuy, where union leaders say 5COO wives nnd children cf jobless miners now face hunger. The industrial mines, such n = those controlled by U. S. Steel p.n-,1 Andrew Mcllon's mines at Coxtoi are operating without trouble. T.:c operators who are feeling tlie pinch are those who must go into the opsr market to sell. They point to the decrease in "lake orders" (shipments to thc iron fields oi Wis cousin aud Michigan) and to th, Iremcndous encroachment that tir development of hydro-clc) trie pow cr in the Carclinas has made o. their coal market. They look. Ico with a fearful eye toward Mu-;r; Shea Is. The operators say they ii.iv been forced into a position whcr they have to fight lo survive. The miners say that, too, of Ihei own case.
