Supporting Worthy Agencies Thig year's Community Chest Cam- ' paigD, which begins Nov. 4 with 'a goal of $26,780 to finance 1948 activities of 20 separate Blytheville organizations, gives those among, the citizens of the community who really care an opportunity to show their appreciation for what laudable agencies are doing day after day throughout the year to help those who may be less fortunate than others. " ' Generally speaking Jhe size of the gift in campaigns suchi as the Community Chest is not a factor in njeas- uring the appreciation. The thing that count* is the feeling within the heart of the individual who contributes.' If the heart ig right, the gift will be •ufficiently large to meet the need. The goal of the Campaign thig year is larger, but it is because more campaigns have been consolidated into one. Contributors should welcome the idea of ihe opportunity to measure at one . time their ability and willingness to giye :tp all 20 agencies supported by the Community Chest. -::- Contributor! should measure carefully -the size of the task that lies ahead and be as liberal as they are diligent when it comes time to figure income tax returns. Framers of the income tax Jaws have wisely provided exceptions for contributions to recognized charities and the Community Chest long has been recognized. Contributor* should remember, too, that the men who give of their time to extend an opportunity to contribute are busy men and are giving extra to thia worthy cause when they leave their businesses to solicit funds. . The strength of the nation lies not •o much in its ability to produce and .bear arms to repel attackers, but in its good dtizens who are loyal in times of peace as well as war. Those who benefit from the dollars-poured into the Community Chest in Blytlwville arc looking to the good people of Blytheville - to demonstrate their citizenship in this campaign. Backing Into the Problem : Hungarian workers in England are now engaged i n dismantling one of the , country, most up-to-date textile factories, piece by piece, for shipment lo Budapest. The mill was shut down in - 1941 « * nd il has been impossible to re- open it because of a manpower short«*e. At tht same time, British distilleries •re Komg full blast, and the distilling industry there has announced that it • intend* to step up rat | w than decreas* ' lU production. Not long ago the British 5!^™' nt al!ocated to that industry " £ •^ ° f CHeftl * rains - or ™r e than t,500,000 bushels. - The reason f or this distilling activity, of oovrae, j g , shortage of dollars. -Scotch whiakey j, , valuable export commodity, and a ready source of clol- _ fers. But British textiles are Also valued, on th« wrid market. Furthermore, v ^ th« United Kinjtdom i« suffering from ^ • shortage of food and clothing, as ;, • well as of dollar*. -1.1 Yet th* British government has M> Been fit to remo\« 76,000 tons of ed|-iy **• *•«»• *« Brituh table, for the fe\; / ' • balance of 1947. It has also Keen fit to dispense will) a modern factory which might have turned out jfoods that could be sold for dollars without further reducing the British diet. Meanwhile, in this country, the distilling industry is preparing for a 60- day shutdown which will put some 30,000 persons out of work. The object it to save 10,000,000 bushels of grain. Thi» I* nearly four limes the amount recently allocated to the British distiller*, but it is only one-tenth of the goal set for American saving in the present conservation drive. It is not our intention to take a by-path into the question of prohibition or the rights or wrongs of alcoholic beverages, beyond recalling that tlie distilling industry is a legitimate one, legalized by the majority iwi|l which enacted the. 21st amendment to the Constitution. Our point is that the distillery shutdown is a- narrow and xpeeialhcd attack upon a broad problem. The 60-day closing 'will not work any particular hardship on the proprietors of these dislilluriea. Hut it will work a hardship upon the families- of the 30,000 workers, particularly with food costs at their present levels. Thus far, voluntary food saving and closing of the distilleries are the only instruments of conservation which have been brought into use. There is every reason for all of us to observe this voluntary food saving—if not as a penance of thanksgiving, then as a means of stretching our inflated dollars. There might even be a reason for putting 30,000 out of work if something commensurate were done in other fields. But there has been no attempt to allocate the grain supply, of which the distillers use only a small fraction., There has been no attempt to control the feeding of grain to livestock. Apparently, no such attempts are planned. The moral of all this would seem to be that an unplanned American program is fumbling a difficult job, while the planned British economy is going at the job of helping itself in a shortsighted way. There must be efficient action on this side of the Atlantic and co-operation on the other-—not only in Britain, but elsewhere—if the enemy of hunger is to be defeated. VIEWS OF OTHERS Hort-ie Rule Not J ust More Taxes •( There Is talk of submitting at; amendment to give Arkansas cities home rule. This is a good Idea, if it Is well worked out. In tact, It deserves tar better supporting arguments than the one which Is now so often advanced—thai with home rule a city could tax itself as much a* it pleased. People are touchy on the subject of taxes. Moreover, they recognize a fallacy in the tax argument. Tt contends that cities are in a strafghtjacket because they can now levy only the five mills for general purposes which the constitution authorized In 18H. Meanwhile, the argument continues, city costs have grown enormously. Cost. 1 ; hav« mounted, of course. Yet (he argument overlooks the Increase of pronerly values. In 1674. the assessed valuation of the stale was only 91 n'illlon, 746 thousand dollars. Now H i« more than 500 million—and, at that, In greatly under-assessed. \ five mills on 01 million dollars Is 'a very (III- fercnl thing from live mills on over 500 million dollars. Also, special mlllagCK have been voted for various purposes; and the state and national governments are helping the cities. Home rule Is true democracy. It can mean better government, more Interest by the city people In their affairs, the greater pride that responsibility fosters. Those are the arguments which should be stressed. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.
