However, there is another ride to be MMJdered. Having once stated its support for Motivation of the air base—which the eity administration hag done—it is then kound to take every possible action to obtain that reactivation. In Tiew of the $900,000 monthly payroll tentatively scheduled by the Air Force in event of reactivation, the air base U *o be considered a highly d«- ilrable operation for the city of Blythe- viile and Mississippi County. Thi« newspaper has and does favor reactivation of Blytheville air base for its economic value to an area plagued by thft "bubble and bust" boom-time economy of the present, one founded almost solely on agriculture. Industry is vitally needed and the air base would be a valuable asset. Opposition is not to be entirely discounted, however. If enough of the town's population is truly and sincerely in opposition to the base, this should become known. Yesterday's petitions at noon, however, apparently carried not quite a hundred names. Certainly this is not a majority of the population of a town enumerated by the U. S. Census Bureau ir. 1950 at 16,221. Public discussion and debate on the air base issue are desirable. Mayor Dan Blodgetl has said "H anything is worth having, it's worth fighting for ... if we do obtain the base, we'll have something worth having and the fight will be worthwhile." Many Blytheville organizations have publicly stated their support of air base reactivation. These include the City Council, the Chamber of Commerce, Blytheville Ministerial Alliance, and many civic clubs and other organizations. At this time, the "pros" have it and the "cons" definitely are in the minority. It must be remembered by both factions, however, the final decision rests not with the community, but with the Air Force which has said reactivation depends upon many factors, including attitude ud facility of the community »nd BLr'iMEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW? wh#ther or not COOJWH makes fund* available for its expansion program. If opposition to the air base make* no more progress than it has to date, this faction should yield its minority position and support base reactivation so Blytheville's chances for the air base will not be jeopardized by a small voice even though the objections be entirely valid. Iran Can't Afford Luxury of Hostility When Britain named a new ambassador to Iran, the move generally was accepted as a ge.slui'O of conciliation lownrd the Mossadegh government. It appeared the British were ready to start afresh, to lay the ground for renewed negotiations. But Premier Mossadegh declined to accept the new ambassador. Coming on the heels of his sharp order closing nine British consulates, his action can only be viewed as one of extreme, almost ir- rationr.l hostility. Just how this benefits an Iran which currently is producing little oil, has no market for a larger product and is financially on the rocks is not plainly evident. Indeed, there is no consistent thread of concern for Iran security ami welfare running through Mossadegh's policies. The only consistency is his apparently unshakable determination not to deal with the British unless they yield 100 per cent to his demands. But stubborn inflexibility and blazing hatred for the British "interloper" are hardly enough to sustain a country in Iran's precarious position. How much longer can Mossadegh indulge his emotions without plunging his country into economic ruin?

For the new law extends group responstb'llry Into an area o! .American activity traditionally most individualistic. The urge to go into Kmall business Is primarily an urge to succeed hi proportion to one's own effort and ability. Bxrireislne a sentiment held by many, John r. Andrews of Beach City, Ohio, haa written to the Collector of Internal Revenue In Cleveland: "I think it IE the duty of the Individual to provide for his own future security, i think I can provide (or my family better than the government r.c.n." This, of course, goes (o the base of the question whether any atate-admlnlstcred old-age Insurance "should be compulsory. Experience In industrial pensions «s well M state insurance Indicates that through misfortune many who aim at self-sufficiency become !r, some degree charges on their employers or the state. Hence the pressure for all-inclusive systems. The way Social Security It presently «et up —wtln 1'iactically flat-rale benefits regardless o( length ol participation—It Is difficult to allow »ny choice without encouraging many to postpone entering the system until their lalcr years. Yei it Is tremendously important that the largest possible areas ot voluntarism be retained In American society.

A Woodsman Sparing a Tree THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 1952 Peter ft/son's Washington Column — India's Elections Set the Stage For Next Four Critical Years WASHINGTON (NEA) — Elections In India, now going on, have considerable interest and importance to the united States even [hough this country Is preoccupied with its own political problems. The constitution of the Republic of India was modeled on that of the United states, but the election system is considerably different. I n s t e a <I of holding national Peter Ed«m clectlons one rtay and knowing the results on the next, RS , in America, the Indians spread their elections over six vecks. They began late In December. They will end early in February, but the final results won't be known till the end of the month. Tills Is India's first four-year slection since the republic was 'oumled In 1947. Out of 170 million elilble voters over 21 5-cnrs of iigo, I is expected about SO million will cast ballots. They tvre voting for members of Parliament — a Council of States and a lower House of the People. They will also choose members of the 28 State assemblies. As of Jan. 23, with returns in from about a fourth of the election districts, these results have been tabulated: House of the People—Out of 496 seats, 105 elected. Nehru's Congress Party won 74, Commlinist.5 11, Socialists and Independents 20. State Assemblies — Out of 4000 seats, 1284 elected, congress Party B30. Independents 131. Communists 115. Socialists 40, others 162. Communists Should Cause Concern It is the nucleus of 11 Communists in the House of the People rmrt the 115 Communists in the state assemblies that should be of some concern not only to India and the United States but to the rest of the world ns well. Assuming that these percentages hold for the whole country, it will mean the Communists will have tiboul 10 per cent representation in Indian leislative bodies. The new U. S. Ambassador to India, che.sler Bowles, former Price Administrator and ex-Governor of Connecticut, has been In Washington for the last couple of weeks, trying to stir u,p more Congressional and other Interest in India. Whatever else anyone may think of Mr. Bowles and his ideas, he is conceded to be a good reporter. He does a lot of leg work and he goes out and digs up a lot of tacts. In'the three months he has been in India he has traveled 7000 miles by plane and 1800 miles by auto within India. He has taken tea In mud huts with families that formerly would have been considered untouchables. He has talked to common people, to students, where Communist agitators tried for two hours to break up his meeting, to business men and politicians, as well as diplomats and Prime Minister Nehru. In Bowies' opinion today. Nehru ts the greatest potential power in the East. Bowles reports that the Communist chant heard most frequently is India is. "Chiang is down. Next goes Nehru." If India goes down to the Communists, it will be a world tragedy equal io the loss of China.

Then he got back to dummy with a trump to cash dummy's last heart. 'South eot (wo discards on dummy's hearts—not enough to do him any real eood.
