Linked with this situation has Leon a passive attitude on the part of municipal and civic leaders toward bringing the benefits of natural gas to the communities within their jurisdictions. i Times are changing, and the idea of concerted action to bring natural gas to Eastern Arkansas is welcomed by aiiy and all who desire a better way of life. T Evidence that times arc changing iii found in concrete form in the ncw- ly_ organized East Arkansas Natural Gas Consumers Association. • It was founded by leaders within the chambers of commerce in East Arkansas and municipal officials who realize the advantages which natural gas can bring tp any city in the form of better living--- conditions for the families with homes lo heat and-meals to prepare, and better economic conditions which will follow when natural gas is offered as an inducement to bring new industries with their big annual payrolls. The big task, the big hurdle to success in this particular undertaking, lies in finding a distributor who will make the heavy financial investment necessary to lay pipelines from the gas fields, or from existing cross- cpuntry lines, that this area can have an adequate supply of natural gas. Then there is the added cost of providing local distribution systems, one which it has been estimated would cost $300,000 in Elythevilie. - Every effort should be made to find private 'interests in the form of corporations in the pubHc utility field to make the necessary investments to serve 22 cities .in East Arkansas. " Tlie'. fight'should continue even if tlie public utilities are not willing to m£ike..yie heavy financial investment. It; has been suggested that the 22 cities and, towns in East Arkansas constitute Tin area large enough to permit wise operation of a gas consumers' cooperative patterned after the electric co-operatives which have shown rapid growth in recent years and made city conveniences possible on farms, some of. them in remote parts of the country. . Such a plan would ennbta the consumers, who ultimately will pay the whole bill for bringing in natural gas, to;bring it into their homes and their factories on a cost basis if they are willing to assume the financial risks that ordinarily fall on the stockholders in the case of private utility enterprises. • The _plan has possibilities. It deserves special study along with any other effort which gets attention in the area-wide move to improve the lot of the'citizens in this rich agricultural area with broad industrial possibilities. prcssivc beside the ?V1 billion national income in the fairly prosperous peacetime year of 1931). Hut we shall pay around ?9 billion in individual income taxes on that record sum. No 1939 figures on individual income- tax payments are immediately at hand, but the country's en- lire internal revenue collection that year was only a little more than $5 billion. Then it might he well to ciit such dollars as we spend for necessities of life right in two before comparing them with the 1939 dollar. Having done so we might conclude that, while it's wonderful to have a great big record national income, we're certainly going to need it. Publicity and Patriotism Seventeen wildcat strikes in HO coal mines have been reported in the six weeks since John I,. Lewis and the operators signed their new post-Taft- Ilartley contract, with its "able and willing to work" clause. Now the operators are humbly petitioning Mr. Lewis to do something about the situation. In Kpilu of John L.'K thunderous cries about "slave labor," any resemblance between the miners and pore ol' Uncle Tom, as of today, is purely coincidental. VIEWS OF OTHERS Mechanizing Cotton Production One of the "dangers" of mechanizing colton production has been the wholesale disruption of a class of workers who already are having n hard lime making a living. That's what some ol our "experts" Imve been telling us for years and tliey have had a big following, even though many of their surveys have been from ofllce windows. Southern agitators were quick to spread such talk amoijs; the Negroes whom the unthinking see as the backbone of the cotton industry. A few feeble voices were heard pointing out that Instead or upsetting the Industry mechanization actually would improve the lot of all who depend upon cotton for a living. The chief mistake of the pessimist was the contention thai big cotloii farms would mean Ihc greater part ot tlie labor would be done by machines. Far from true. The small cotton farmer still produces a large part of Hie crop. Mechanizing cotton production can only force him to do what he is already doing—raise other crops and aim al improving Ihe quality of his cotton. II will also encourage him to raise, more cattle, for winch he will always find a fair market if his stock is good. About 200 nerlcullui'M, Industrial and governmental leaders have been meeting at Greenville, Miss., where they discussed the probable etfecl of, mechanization or cotton production on the economy of the South. Oscar Johnston, president of the National Cotton Council, believes that cotton's competitive position will) other fibers seems certain to be bettered by mechan- iy.alion. His most, potent argument was that industry after industry, agricultural commodity after agricultural commodity, have turned lo mechnnsi'.A- tlon and in every case the chunge has proved profitable in the long run. It may cause temporary disruptioi^ but no great change in our economic system has been made overnight. It's hard to disagree with Mr. Johnston. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.

Chronic backache In women is worse al the end of the dav after standing or bending. Pain and soreness lend to stay in the back, rather than radiale down the thighs.
