Colbn Wrapping All authorities agree that new uses must be found for cotton if American farmers are to find it profitable to maintain an annual acreage of 40,000,000 to 50,000,000 acres. The cotton industry ought to lead • the way. Adoption of cotton wrapping instead of jute for cotton bales would provide an immediate market for a tremendous amount of cotton, materially relieving the pressure from the present huge surplus, and it would also serve the possibly more important purpose 'of dramatizing and emphasizing ' the cotton industry's determination to do everything in its power to solve its . problem. Cotton wrapping would cost a few -.cents per bale more than the jute that is now generally used. But the extra money and a good deal more would go right back into the pockets of Am- •erican cotton growers, instead of beiiiR sent to India or elsewhere to pay for jute. Furthermore the cotton wrapper ;would provide better protection for the ;ba'les than does the jute, and its ligh- 'ter weight would effect some saving oii .transportation • charges. Most important of all, however, is •the fact that it would reflect a col- ton consciousness that is highly de• sirsblo in all communities thai are chiefly dependent upon the commodity ,'for their' cash income. ." tt" would be good business, and A ', splendid lUiycrtisement for Missfssip- prcounty, if this county could take the .lead in the uniform adoption of the cotton wrapping. MONDAY, MAY 11. 1931 Fall And Prison If a jury of the people as a whole • were to -sit in the case of Albert B. Fall, • former secretary of. the interior, would it i require the aging, dying man to pay the penally 'imposed ujwn him for his . part in the Teapot Dome affair? This question rises in many minds as ; it becomes apparent that only executive ; clemency can save him from spending a year in prison. The §100,000 line im• posed upon hini the government cun- not collect* because Fall has nothing. Were the public disposed to show the ' suffering-old man mercy, it would probably be due in large part to lhal trav- OUT OUR WAY esty of justice which freed the two rich conspirators who paid the bribe while convicting the templed public official. Under our criminal code the giver and receiver o£ a bribe'are equally culpable. But the Fall case now stands on its own merits. If sending him to jail— probably to die there—would deter others from betraying public trusts, or would exert a reformative influence upon the malefactor, then the sentence should be served. But the former secretary of the interior will not live long enough to sin again and it is doubtful if punishing Fall will have deterrent effect upon others in minds the acquittal of Sinclair and Doheny is still fresh. , . .,,,.. Luixora's Founder In the year eighteen hundred and forty-live a twelve-year-old boy' with his father and mother migrated from Unluntown, Kentucky, to eastern Arkansas. It was n new world, Arkansas was then a virgin if ale,'and lo this little boy lite held vast expectations. He dreamed of the (line when he, » man, could carve out a destiny tluu would live after him. We will skip over his boyhood and when wo sec him now, lie Is married, with a family, but he Is still seeking. Buying some land around Rosa, Arkansas, lie set out to farm at Elmonl, but as he looked around he saw a good spot several miles ilown the river which he believed would be an Ideal place for a general store. So In eighteen hundred and eighty-three Dcmpsey Thomas Waller wllh'hls family moved to this spot where he built a store and hninc. Soon after the store was built this fiirslghteit man set out to get a poslofllcc. Op to this date the town Imil been unnamed. The naming of the town was quite a romantic occasion as Mrs. Waller had read (he name "Luxora," In the book, "The pillar of Fire" and was so attracted : by Its oddity she named her little daughter by that name- The town was named "Luxora" in her honor. He succeeded In his undertaking and In 1883 the post oltcc was established with mall coming from Memphis on the palatial Anchor line- one of the most noted of all \lver steamer lines —three times n week. Can you not imagine the excitement when the first mail was brought to this little settlement. In later years the danger of floods grew and so Mrs. Waller purchased land- on the other side of the levee where new Luxora now stands. .Tills was after (he death of Mr. Waller which occurred on Match 16. 1831. So this pioneer passed on—bill he had fulfilled his VJish-to leave something behind. And we—the citizens of this thriving little town of 1.100 population arc proud of its first citizen--Dcmpsey Thomas Waller. Osccola Times.

TODAY IS THIS CURIOUS WORLD PROMISE TO JEWS On May- 11, 1911, a deputation 'rom the Rumanian Jews In Jassy Called on King Ferdinand to present to him the assurance of their oyalty. They took this action because of rumors which connected -hem with pro-German intrigue. King Ferdinand told the depu- :ation In reply: "After having been long in close touch with the daily life of all classes of people Ui (he country, 1 formed the conviction—and I am pleased to bear testimony to the fact In the present circumstances that I was not mistaken—that all in habitants of Rumanian soil, Irrespective of differences of origin, of race, or of religion, were actuated by the same exalted ideas of fraternity. "AH who have striven for (ho realization of the aspirations which Rumanians have entertained for SD many ages, by shedding their blood, by enduring the difficulties of and sacrifices Imposed by the war and Invasion, whether they are Christians or Jews or adherents of any other form of belief, will equally have a right to the gratitude of the country and to that of the king, and will enjoy equal rights In a free, great, and flourishing 'Rumania, closely united, all of us, under the folds of the national flag."

There Is an old expression which says, "Sec Naples and Die."

It's the Chorus Equity Association, n branch of the Actors' Equity, that Is breaking the news to chorines across the land. Some 10,000 letters have Usu;d from this office in the course of tho I past week advising chorines (hat i Broadway wants "hoofers' 1 rather "than ladies of the ensemble.

The producer wants something uore than just beauty this time. Ic wants something more (inn straight heel-and-toe work; something more than the old dance roil line. Chorus Equity finds that he wants dycd-in-llic-wool "hosiers." Now even In Broadway, there arc r.ot so many professional clnrlnes who can qualify. And taking dancing lessons runs Into money. So Chorus Etpiity runs a dancin-j •I'.ool en the side. As an aid to (lie Writes who get but a nominal salary even when t^ey set \vork, (he charge is 50 cents. Prof. Wi:- l's the "time-step," however, that makes the big difference. Unless this can be mastered there is little chance of a dancer graduat- in, for dozens of other steps de- l«nd completely on a thorough knowledge of "time tapping." Listening in on one of Prof Mc- IMierson's lessons presents an entirely new lingo to the average eardrum. "All right, snnp into the bamy twist . . . hey, there, fall off the log, now over the top and pivot ... a little catsup and beans and nov; for a crackerjnck." What, all this means, only the professionals know. And after all this has been mastered, the girl still must be able to pick up the intricate new steps and routines invented by chorus direc tors. This, of course, ii she is lucky enough (o get a chunce with a show. And if you don't think a chorine ' earns her mousy—let it be knoun that when rehearsals begin, she works from ten in the morning until early In the evening; that once the show gets "wanned up" and the director knows what is going to hapjicn, they work 12 hours at practice, which is from (en in (he morning until (en at night.
