Councilmen Due Credit For Work on Sewer Issue In the confusion and divergence of opinion over the water company purchase proposal, R matter of credit where credit is due is likely to be overlooked. Regardless of personal opinions on the issue itself, Btytheville citizens owe .Mayor Blodgett, the City Council and its Finance Committee thanks for the work they did on getting info shape H plan for us to vote on. The difficulty many seem to have had in understanding the proposed attests to its difficult nature. Buyittfr property is never a lightly disposed-of act. Buying- such things as utilities is even more involved. And when a city tackles the pnrchnse of a utility, (he nature of the transaction and the necessary safeguards called for make the matter infinitely more difficult. Much extra time was devoted to this proposal by the busy businessmen on the Council. That it was rejected hy a minority of the qualified electors in Blytheville is no reflection on the work they did. They deserve credit for formulating a proposed solution to the sewer problem. They at least jrave tis something concrete to consider and act ii(ion. And their work is not finished. Whatever the proposals submitted and whatever your opinion of them, don't lose sipht of the fact Hint they all add up to a lot of work for these city official?, Koje POW's Made Violence Essential The Hani cor? of Rpr] prisnnpr i'os.i?t- ance on Koje Island having linen smashed hy force. th<= only way it conW he. we must now fc .p (hat Ihp romrmim?t propagandists wlin mark thi? as evidence nf "inhumane treatment" do not p> unanswered.

And they Uierefore left commaiificrs no recourse but to comiiat thprn as The Reds had dnyr trendies across Compotind 76, They were armed with home-made sjiears, knives and blurifr- eon?. They resisted removal from the compound as if they were troops of Hie l:nc. So the violence used is on their heads, not ours. They not only invited retaliation by force. They made it essential. General Boalner ia taking the mily Miuible action h« could to meet persistent Red rebellions on Koje. He is break- In? up (he rebels into smaller, more manageable units. The performance of Communist prisoners is wholly typical of Red behavior and ought not to have occasioned surprise. We should have learned that whether the rules are. of war or of peace, they mean nothing to the Communists. The Communists have made & creed of breaking the rules. They have elevated riot and rebellion to a way of life. They have sought to give fanaticism the dignity of a faith. In truth their only STOK! is power. They have demonstrated wherever they gain the ascendancy thai their concern is for the instruments of power. Their professed devotion to I he needs of humanity is a come-on, a jerry-built front masking their crude purpose. The free world ought to be pretty sick by now of listening to Communists exalt these crudities as the rising voice of a trampled mankind. What nre we afraid of, what kind of faith is ours if we cannot quickly expose this bestiality for what it. is? The Red response to every situation is violence, falsehood, the stirring of fear. H cannot compete for long with free men's faith steadily extolled and wisely erecuted. The Hard Way What they won't do for a yen in Japan these days. The latest moneymaking dodge reported from Tokvo is this: A fellow takes a 1000-yen bill, cut3 it into 15 pieces, and then reassembles It, minus one piece. With such extra pieces he makes a new hill. The Bank of Japan is legally obligated to pay in full for any damaged hill if at least two thirds of it is held hy the person presenting it. There must be a less tedious way of making money. Do you suppose the people out there haven't heard about surplus property deals, or Internal Revenue Bureau Views of Others Money, Many Years Of It The United States Chamber of Commerce has gone to bat to help states prove that they are doing « good Joh of administering the Unemployment Compensation System. And the Chamber ti turning out to be a tough batter for those who are trying to pitch the unemployment insurance program into the Federal larder. Figures produced by the U.S.C.C. not only prove the case for the states, they show that something ought to he done to lower the unemployment taxes. Without collecting another nicknl, the average state has enough unemployment limds to pay claims at their present rate for nine years! South Carolina is right on the average—nine years. Six sltltr-5 iColorario. Iowa, Nebraska. Ntfw Mexico, Texas, Wisconsin! and the District of Columbia could continue their payments for more than s quarter of a century without taking In any more money. It seems to us the states are doing a pretty goad job. In fact, mayhe too good. The Unemployment tax rates should be dropped. —Rock Kill (S.C.i Herald Refreshing Change With all the purple prose that the presidential hopefuls are thrnwins around thefp days, a bit of light burner surh as was offerer! by two of them when they met in Florida Is refreshing.
