This is something City Council's Traffic Committee may well study. Traffic is becoming much of a problem in Blytheville. Even though some streets have been improved and widened, the flow of traffic will continue to be a growing and pressing problem in downtown Blytheville. Therefore, we think it evident that the use of "No Parking" signs will be a growing, rather than a diminishing practice in the future of the town. Certainly these should be restored on sectors of Walnut which bear downtown traffic and on downtown Asli Street. Traffic is beginning to slow up in Blytheville. Let's get it moving again. The small, neat "No Parking" sign is one of the cheapest, quickest and surest methods we have available. Let's bring it into play wisely in applying it to traffic logjams. The President's Program If the American people take their cue from President Eisenhower, they will view the months ahead in this year 1955 with confidence but without complacency. He told them in his State of the Union message to Congress that they have great reason to look hopefully into the future. For the first time in long years, there is no active major battlefield anywhere on earth. And, after a 1954 marred by a business decline that caused some apprehension, the President could report that "business activity now surges with new strength." , Mr. Eisenhower obviously wants the American people to go about their tasks with renewed cheerfulness, with less tension than has marked their lives .in the past decade and a half. He believes the facts of 1955 warrant such a mood. But he is not willing to have them forget the menace of Russo-China commun- nism which hangs over them, nor ignore some of the shortcomings of their own way of living. He reminded us military-force is still the chief reliance of the Soviet Union, despite all the cooing words about "eo- existence.'\He added that "their steadily growing power includes an increasing strength in nuclear weapons." Mr. Eisenhower appreciates acutely the danger inherent in this mounting Russian atomic might, and wishes us all to share Ms awareness. At the (same time, he offers assurance against undue alarm, in the shape * defMiM program dwigned to stresi our own air power and atomic force, at the expense of somewhat reduced ground armies, The lawmakers may quarrel over the details of this plan, but they can hardly contest its aims. The president likewise would puncture any smugness we might feel about the upsurging home front. There are too many gaps and soft spots for us to view it with complete comfort. He has a program calculated to meet many of these problems. This calls for federal aid to help meet the grave shortage of school classrooms, for Higher minimum wages, more public housing, a comprehensive new highway program, federal health protection, some changes in the Taft-Hartley labor law, an attack -on the juvenile delinquency problem, and continuing attention to the needs of farmers, especially drought sufferers. As he prepares to tackle specifically the problems involved in assuring the nation's safety and prosperity, Mr. Eisenhower is not unmindful of the difficulty confronting a Republican President who must deal with a Democratic Congress. With some eloquence and abundant good humor, he has appealed to his Democratic friends and opponents on Capitol Hill to approach the tasks of peace and prosperity in a spirit of national harmony and cooperation. No one doubts he will find this spirit at work on all major matters of foreign policy and defense. Unity of attack is much less likely on domestic problems, for somewhere, somehow, the Democrats must make a record in this Congress that can give them hope of regaining the White House in 1956. , Whatever politics may do to warp and reshape his projects, the President's outlook and program for 1955 appear to have the virtues'of positiveness, sanity and moderation—underscored by keen altertness to the continuing peril facing America and all free lands. 50 THEY SAY Leo Speaks for Himself Leo Love, a typesetting machine operator for the Jackson (Miss.) Daily News, was summoned for jury service and was asked for court officials whether his newspaper work would have any effect on his decision as a juror. "When you work around a newspaper for a while, you get to where you don't pay attention to what they write," Leo said. Leo was accepted as a juror, but It should be understood that he is not talking for all, or a majority, of the typesetting machine operators on the nation's newspapers. Most editors have found the men who convert copy into type not only very much up one the news of the world, the nation and their home towns—but also with very decided viewpoints. As typesetting machine operators set the news,' from minute to minute, they may not get all the details of the stories because of the way news copy is handled in a well-run composing room. But let it be known, far and wide, that they are well, news-wise. Some • printers are better versed in the daily news and its evaluation than many of their fellow citizens. Leo Love speaks for himself.—Mattoon (111.) Journal-Gazette. 5 ; 552 Typewriters Lately the Department of Defense has been looking into its warehouses. One of its finds in this Operation Clean Sweep is a supply of 5,552 brand- new typewriters that no one knew existed. Use of these machines in various federal agencies will save taxpayers $680,000 In the coming year. Maybe the Pentagon men and those from other agencies could profit by looking Into other radk corners. Even if some of the items found aren't brand new. they might be usable. Unfortunately, many of the war surpluses were left In other countries or destroyed, one Dallas man, a former Air Force officer in the Far East, tells that hundreds of slightly used typewriters were dumped in in the. ocean so they couldn't be sold to civilians and thus depress the market price. Whatever further finds may be made in federal warehouses, it Is gratifying to find efficiency returning to agencies that recently were squandering tax money with a lavish hand.—Dallas Morning v/lbWSOFOTHERS We shall neither be intimidated nor lulled into a false of security. We shall patiently and steadily persist in measures of collective security. - Secertary of State Dulles. * * * I cannot help but believe that landlords who refuse to take children are social parasites and should be condemned as antisocial. — Rabbi Reuben Slonim of Toronto, Canada. * * * I cannot be associated with such un-American methods. — Gen.

There was no publicity on the meeting, before or after. Some of ;he business representatives present declared the lunchon meet- ng, held in a Washington hotel, was completely off the record and ;hat there was no news in it. No "ormal organization was perfected, no committees were appointed, no plans were made for future meet- ngs, no resolutions were passed, no list of those present was kept. One reason given for this last 'act was that many of the trade associations represented are not registered as lobylsts on Capitol Hill. Fearful of the lobby registration law, they did now wish to become involved in any activity that might later be interpreted as attempting to influence legislation. The mere fact that this number of trade association representa- ives could be assembled, however, ndicates the extent of business interest in the subject. Among the ndustries represented were dairy products processors, food processors, warehouse operators, shipbuilders, electrical contractors, wooden box manufacturers, and ;o on. Leaders in calling the meeting were Paul Courtney of the Associated Businessmen of America, Louis Fisher of the Faint, Varnish and Lacquer Association and Robert North of the International As- sociation of Ice Cream Manufacturers, Mr. Notrh served as chairman. In all, the U. S. government is now said to be in competition with some 135 private industries. Any formal organization of representatives of these' business lines or their trade associations could, of course, exert considerable pressure on Congress and the executive branches of government. It is insisted, .however, that no such pressure group will be formed as a result of the recent Washington meeting. The main purpose was said to be informing the Washington representatives of the various industries on current developments in the effort to get the government out of competition with private business. Roberts will then be made to trade associations which will sparaly drmin be made o trade associations which will separately determine their own policies for future action. In one sense, the Washington meeting of trade association representatives was held in something of a vacuum. Suspended some place in this vacuum is a new Bureau of the Budget bulletin to all government agencies, outlining a new policy on handling their activities which compete with private business. This new directive has been in preparation for months. It was supposed to have been issued shortly after election. Red tape delays and difficulties in getting the new policy approved by the Department of Justice and the Cabinet the Doctor Says— Written for NKA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Vincent's infection, or trench riouth as it is commonly called. s an extraordinary condition. Two ] tound: A corkscrew-like one which s known as Vincent's spirochete and a germ-shaped one, some- ;hing like a dumbbell narrowed at both ends. Which of these, if j either, causes trench mouth is still uncertain, It Is sure, however, that the disease is contagi- j ous and can be spread from one \ person to another. j If trench mouth starts sudden- j y pain is always present. The | mouth and tongue burn like fire and excessive salivation is the rule; sometimes the .saliva becomes actually bloody. The breath smells foul and there is a metal- taste in the mouth. In children sore throat, fever, pains in he muscles and joints, difficulty j n swallowing and the appearance of severe Illness are not uncommon. The lining of the mouth may ulcerate and sometimes an ac- tial membrane forms wicli can be confused with diphtheria. The nvolved areas around the sums ind throat are inflamed, lender. ,nd bleed easily if pressed. Erupting teeth or teeth in poor position, ill-fitting crowns or other dentures, poor hygiene of the mouth (that is failure lo keep the ceth clean) and interference with nutrition of the gums often for ing on trench mouth. Certain vitamin deficiencies, particularly deficiencies of vitamin C rind B, chronic malnutrition, certain blood diseases, and several clislnrbnncc.s of he digestive tr.;ct enter into the picture also.

Anything which lowers the vitality helps to bring on trench mouth. During wars or famines when hundreds of thousands of people are not getting enough to eat and are great stress and strain trench mouth often spreads like wildfire. After any wasting illness, too, a person becomes more susceptible t h n n when things are going well. But sometimes ft pops up in, those who are in good condition too.

Department of Defense also has a new directive on this subject in preparation for early issuance. Most of the government's activities competing with private business are now in the Army, Navy and Air Force installations. They Include clothing manufacture and repair, ordnance and munitions manufacture, paint, rope and other military supply production, aircraft and automotive service and repair, post exchange and commissary stores competing with local retail merchants. In the last Congress, a House Government Operations sub-committee under Rep. Cecil Harden (R., Ind.) ran extensive hearings and issued a number of reports highly critical of all government husiness-type activities. Just who will be on the Govern: ment Operations committees in the new Congress, and whether this field of investigation will be con- tii.vsd are not now known. Washington lobyists naturally want to be prepared for any developments along this line. Four bills were introduced In th last Congress to limit government competition with private industry. One bill passed the House, but died in the Senate. Trade association representatives now feel that if they had exerted a little more pressure at the time, this legislation would have passed the last Congress and been signed by the President. have no reason to disobey instructions.
