That Old Mississippi Parkway Boondoggle Again—or yet—Congress is mulling over the proposed Mississippi River Parkway, n fnmnlons scenic drive calculated to inspire tourists as they drive from the Great Lnkes to the Gulf. Cost of this strip of concrete lias not yet been nnnomieprj. However. (lip p.irk- way is scheduled to be about 2,500 miles in lenpth. it currently costs approximately 550,000 per mile to lay down a two-lane concrete highway. And this 550,000 does not include the costs of surveying, righl-of-ways or excavation. At this rate, it would cost approximately 5125,000,000 to lay the concrete alone. It is,safe to say that the added costs of surveying, right-of-ways and excavation on a job lil;e this would result in a total of truly statrgeriiifr proportions. Considering the amount of federal highway work that needs to he done elsewhere -including Arkansas—we are inclined to regard the whole plan as another big boondoggle. We are supposed to he in the midst of a defense build-up. An emerRrncy is purported to exist. Ovpr-ajre World Wai- Two j'uii ban-els are exploding from over ti?o in Korea and killing our own men.

(Took) Gnthings, con- giT.^rran i>,,m this district, has introduced a bill'ing for construction of such a highway ttirough the Mis- sis-'ippi V.iitfy. One of the suggcstv.l roulc.- would take the parkway through Ofceol;.. another through .lonosl.oro and Forrest O'ty. Ftom the folks-back-home standpoint. the hill will b ( . a popular one. It also will appeal to all those localities in other viver stairs ihrongh which the parkway would t.;.~s. Unless the folks back home indicate otherwise, congressmen will he inclined to vote for such a project on the usual pork barrel basis. Ordinarily. v.- E find liule fault with Rep. Gaihin.t/s as tills district's spokesman in the House. However, in this case we feel he acted with more enthusiasm over the project than even we at homo have displayed. If residents of .Mississippi County want, this parkway, they have kept their desires hidden under a strange blanket of silence. We realize that congressmen are under pressure to introduce many bills and vote for many things. We also realize that the introduction of a bill by no moans foretells its passage. Such a parkway project is not needed. It would bp nice, no doubl. Rut never necessary. Kspecially at a time when we can't even get our defense machine roll- iiitf despite the money being poured into it. This parkway business .strikes us as an ideal place to start cutting off unnecessary non-do tense spending. Match Taft and Ike There can be no complaint that contests are not shaping up in the various slate presidential primaries which begin with the New Hampshire affair next month. ft is rcgfetlable, though, that the two principal ''onienders, Senator Taft and Central Kisonhower, are not face to face in more of these encoimters. As things now stand, they are sure opponents only in New Hampshire. Eisenhower's name or a slate of delegates for him is entered also in Pennsylvania and Minnesota. Tal'L is in Wisconsin, Illinois. Ohio and West Virginia. Taft is limiting himself to slates where ho can actively campaign. Kiscn- hower's backers cannot enter their man in any spots where formal consent of the candidate is required. There are two principal battlegrounds where the prime adversaries still may meet—New Jersey and Oregon. In I IIP. interest of a clear-cut indication of their relative standing among the voters of America, it is to be hoped their names will be entered in both these states. leaders' Views To the FXiitor: I have (icon rending the pro and cnn tn your paper about the reactivation of Biythevllle air base.

MU.1TAKY r.KTS 10 I 1 Kit CKNT OF IJUDOET The Spanish Koveriimrnt budget for tills year is roughly five and a half billion dollars. Of this, two billion, t'.vo hundred million dollars, or 40 per cent would go to the military. Thi:-,- l:s un increase from one billion. 400 million dollars military cx- liPnditiii-M. nr 25 per cent nf the total Spanish buii^rt last year. Kvni! r.n fhi.s biirieef, Spnin went intf thr red sevpn l^undred million dollars Ian year. How nu obviouslv Inreer clcncit can be met this year lias, not, b?cn explained. Hntibled military expenditures in R|r;in will increase the already dangerously hi<;h inllalinnnrv nrcssurps. If the U. S. military build-up in -Spain e"ts blamed fnr nny increase in the Spanish cost of living it won't help a bit. Tt Is therefore being recommended (hat. the Spanish economy lie strengthened so it wji] tint collapse under the militarv load. Spain cnulrt easily soak up all of the U. S. hundred million dollar aid program without one cent ever go- me to ;he military. One five-year peon-unit aid prrmram drawn up for •Spain calls for nearly .= -10 million tlir first year, .scnline down to cicht million dollars the last, for a total 'if SI 12 million. How the Spanish people might rrnct to this military-economic aid linr- hocn the subject of some American survey. It reveals that the avev.a^e Siianlard doubts if stich aid would seep down tn where the Tnrkino class maiority would get any benefit from It. The nvcmw Spanish wage Is still 20 to so pesetas a day—50 cents to SI 2S in U. s. money. This isn't eunuch to keep a family. Many wotkcr.s. evon army officers, try to hold down two jobs. Most U. S. nid. it is felt, would stick in the hands of government officials or alrendy rich employers. To overcome these objections it hr e been proposed that every O. S. dol- j lar spent in Spain be fm-en the fullest possible public accounting and j publicitv. SPAIN "WANTS NO DOIXAKS- FOR-TROOPS EXCIIANOF. There is also much-reported feeling in Spain that U. S. aid is to be [ given only in exchange for Spanish 1 | troops to fi';ht Russia. Not having i I recovered yet from their own civil | war. the Spanish people aren't anxious tn gel involved in another. ] American aid would unr;uestion- \ ably strengthen the haJid of the Franco covernment. This regime is not considered too popular, though it Is accepted. Since 1936 the Franco government has worked principally to keep j peace with the top elements of so- j ciety. They include the Church, I the Army. Ihe Falanse party, bank- jers. businessmen and landowners. ; None of these groups is interested in change. It is now recognized that the United States cannot change this regime, even by holding out on aid. But by patience anri tact in negotiations, some basic reforms might be insisted upon. The American problem is therefore analyzed as a need to build j tip Spain so that it can willingly i ns-sume its share of the burden at j western European defense. This will | apparently have to be done with- I out any assistance from any coun- I try except, even poorer Portugal. I Along with this is a gigantic public relations problem in convincing the Spanish people of the worth of this effort. Raising the Spatib;, ' standard of living by as little as 20 per cent might iro a long way towards makinq the military program more palatable. Agencies Curbing Car Output Feel Pressure By 1MVIU J.

Written for \KA Service Hodfikln's disease is a peculiar and fortunately, not too common disorder, but one which is of extraordinary interest to a- person who acquires it and to his or her family and friends. The disease is more common In young people than In older ones and more frequent (n men than in women. It tins been reported from every part v of the world. There is no danger of catching It from ft patient. The first stfin Is usually (but not iK'ays) enlargement of the lymph Elands in the neck. The swollen glands are not painful. After a while, perhaps months or vt-ars later, glands In other parts of the body may become enlarged. Tt does not Interfere' with general well-being for a long time, but gradually nnemla tends to develop. A small amount of fever may be present and the patient slowly becomes thin. The lymph glands and Ihe spleen which nre affected in Hodgkln's disease are part of a chain or group that of tissues, called dothelial system. the rellcii Tl>c fact -..v inl-t L.lrtl* tnis system fs attacked lias raised - . -«vn Tvljiull to build more cars. Some Industry believe they will get It. possibly in ' time to increase this year's second quarter output.

This is the Federal He.serve Board rule that allows you only 15 months in which to complete Installment payments on your car. TK« REGULATION was the subject of a resolution adopted by th» National Automobile Dealers Association at Its recent New York convention. The resolution, however. stressed the hardship the credit limitations plated upon "certain • segments of the car buying public" rather than upon the retailers themselves. But is isn't any secret that many retailers believe the rigid controls on credit are restricting sales. You still can hear It said in some auto industry'quarter* that 1962 be- ins n presidential election year restrictions on production may be eased substantially before 'mid- ., year.

So far, however, no [fore the April-June quarter gets or virus has ever been proved as the cause. The patient with Hodgkln's disease usually goes through periods of remarkable improvement, The enlarged lymph glands may disappear almost completely and the general condition may improve for a long time. X-RAY TREATMENT FAVORED 'Hie favorite form of treatment has been X-rays, This often causes improvement la-sting for months at i nine. Treatments with drugs has not been particularly .successful. Recently there hxve been several favorable reports on the treatment well under way. • • « AUTHORIZATIONS SO FAR given the car manufacturer call for the production of 1,006.000 passenger cars in the January -March quarter and up to 930,000 cars In the April-June period. The manufacturers, however, haven't been given all the materials they will need to build the authorised second quarter quotas. When the second quarter quotas were announced, copper for only SCO.OOO , was allocated to the auto makers. They still are taking of^patieiitsjvith Horlqkm's disease copper out of radiators, generators, colled "nitroaen mustards."

For example, consider one of the hands that we plaved in that first Eastern. Most, pairs got to four spades with the South hand, but many of them found a way to throw'the game out of che window. The careless declarer would ruff the second club, two top diamonds and lead n third diamond to ruff it in dummy. This allowed West to step up with the pack of spades to over-ruff dummy. Non- South still had to a heart and a trump, for a one-trick set. When George Reith played the hand, he took the simple precaution of drawing one round of trumps before lie began the diamonds. After all. he needed only , one of dummy's trumps to ruff alii'!-* i- •, , ~ , diamond, so it was sound technique "lO'tary Tribunal Created to draw the other trump. 75 Years In Blythcville County Judge s. L. today confirmed ceports that Paul E. Cooley, former county auditor now employed in Memphis, will return here as county auditor this week. O. H. Grear, long-time Blytheville merchant, today announced his candidacy for the office of mayor in the April municipal election. A daughter was born tills week to Mr. and Mrs. Boyce Moore. This simple safety play removed the jack of spades from the West hand. He couldn't prevent Reith from ruffing a low diamond with dummy's remaining trump, so the game contract was easily made. To my mind, the lesson taught by this hand is Just as clear today as when It was first played.
