In thii »dito- ria), we made these declarations: "Because of the critical need for a new sewer system, we would endorse purchase of the water company — but only as a last resort. ' 'The utility should he purchased only after every possible avenue of sewer planning has been explored, only after every potential solution has been attempted and proved impractical. "And if purchase of the water company should prove to be the only answer to our problem, then we would endorse it wtlh the reservation that such support was NOT equivalent to approval of ownership of a public utility by a municipal jfovemment. "If this were proposed for any other reason than that of ending a critical sewer problem, we would not hesitate . , . in firmly opposing such a move." That was our editorial policy then. That has been our view since then, ex- prossnd in a number of other editorials. That will continue to be our stand on the matter. In Answer to a Reader Who Thinks We're Partial: i Although the Issue is settled, »t l*»gt for the present, the Courier News t«ke« this opportunity and means to rer ply to i render who feels we were par- ti*! in connection with the proposed purchase of Blytheville Water Company by the city. . In a letter to the editor printed hi an «<JJofninjr column on this page, William Vaughn writes that it seems to him th« Courier News favored the city administration's views too much. First, Mr. Vaughn says "you place •fl of their (the city's) . . . statements on the front page and then the opposition statements are all placed in the middle or back of your . . . paper." He feels tht statements of both sides should have been placed on the same page. Even if this were physically possible or practicable, Mr. Vaughn, there • are other considerations. First, newspapers everywhere have traditionally placed letters to the editor on inside pages, generally on the editorial page. Sometimes, as in this case, it is not possible to use them all on the same inside page. Several of these letters were not received until virtually the last minute. This was the character of all the pro's and con's that arose on the water com- pt.ny issue—both citizens and "interested parties" waited until tlie last minute to declare themselves despite the many months they had in which to speak up." Second, both our continued news and editorial policies on this matter dull the charge of partiality. When the opposition finally spoke up, their charges and claims were included in a -front page story. That the opposition kept silent until the last minute was strategy of its own choosing. And third, rather than attempt to influence voters or mould their decisions for them, we felt it better to present the available facts of the issue at hand. This was Ordinance 526, which the voters were to approve or reject, and certain other facts we felt were necessary to help them decide. The four-part series on this subject which the Courier News published was simply an explanation of the issue at hand. It was staff-written and no stand for or against was. taken in these articles. On March 3, 1950, the Courier News carried the story of .Mayor Henderson's recommendation that the water company be purchased. In that same edition wa* t Big Hand to Gen. Ridgway General Ridgway justifiably gained widespread praise in Washington for the forthright way in which he presented all the issues surrounding the Korean war and the future of Japan. Even men who think any general who draws pay under the Truman administration is automatically a Democratic general were constrained to applaud him. Perhaps the most characteristic thing Ridgway did was to assume himself the basic blame for the series of dismal incidents at the prison compound on Koje Island. Whether or not he was actually responsible in any direct sense, it was a fine gesture and its purpose was obvious: to avoid having any stigma attaching to Gen. Mark Clark, his successor in the Far Eastern command. Clark patently walked into that one and it was only fitting that it be made clear he was in no way responsible. He has. had troubles enough in the past without being blamed for those he inherits. Readers' Views To the Editor: I am fc constant reader ol your newspaper and • inc* this controversy of the City buying the water company has come HhtfUt^l-am more interested than ever but it seeins.Hxj me as a reader th^t you are favorin? the City side too much as you place all of their stories and statements on the front page and then the opposition statement* are all placed In the middle or back ol your good paper. t believe In all fairness to both sides, you should place all Information pertaining to this matter on the same page of your ne\vspnper so • II of the readers will find all o! (he stories without having to ask the neighbors if they found something that I didn't. Since I don't [eel that it Is to the best Interests of trie taxpayers that we O^T\ any pubUt utility and since the utilities are pretty heavy taxpayers, I understand, all information on such vital matters should certainly b* brought to the public eye as much as it Is possible as it seems to me there are too many tax exempt businesses already for the good of the few remaining taxpayers.

If hearts are continued, South can win and lead a diamond. If West wins the first diamond, he cannot Tcad pnother heart: If East wins the first diamond, he cannot defeat the contract whether he returns a heart or a spade. Suppose, for example, that East wins the first diamond and returns a third round of hearts. Declarer wins and knocks out the ace.of diamonds. Now South can surely regain the lead to run four clubs, two diamonds, two hearts, and one spade. The defenders are equally helpless If they switch to spades after winning the first diamond. South wins and captures a spade honor with his ace and knocks out the other top diamond The defenders can now t«ke one spade trick, but must then surren der the lead to South's ten o spades. Declarer then ha* tricks tc burn, while the defenders have tak en only a heart, a spade and twi diamonds Now for another swing of th pendulum. When West opens th nine of hearts, South must hold u in order to have any play for hi contract. Having f.hus obtained on heart trick, the defenders, must now switch to spades. South captures a spade hono with his ace and goes after th diamonds. Now the defenders ca plug away al spades, defeating th contract with 1 two spades, two di?

Expanded Education When the Southern regional education program, co-operative agreement between 14 states, was Inaugurated a few short years ago. there were those cynics who saw it as a scheme fnr the South to escape Its educational responsibilities. Surely. It has proved by its operation and expansion that that ts not tne case. Not content to restrict Itself to early fields of endeavor,-the regional organization is considering more than a score of additional avenues of cooperation varying from aeronautical research to Lafin American studies and petroleum sciences. Programs are expectfd to be adopted on several in time for the 1&52-53 school year. Born of a nerd occaMor.ed by modest &ta(e school budgets, the regional compact has placed specialized higher education within reach of thousands of Southern students who might otherwise have been denied such training. —New Orleans States Sunday Sclxtol Lesson — By W.

We are wont to give far too little regard to the Juriaistte backgrounds of Christianity, the spiritual realities, that. Jesus said He had come not. to destroy, but to fulfill. Dorp In these spiritual realities was the conviction concerning God and nchtcousncss. This touched with slory Israel's ceat prophets. pie, and the freedom that Is most real and deep the cynic might not consider freedom at all. I think I have found a striking illustration of that sort of freedom. Thomas Cranmer was a leader in the Protestant Reformation in England. A career marked by much that was tine was marked also by much that was questionable and dishonorable, and reached Its lowest depth, when Vie recanted from his former beliefs, faced with death in the persecutions of "Bloody Mary-."
