School for Handicapped Will Be Asset to City BlyUieviile's School Board aiul the Junior Auxiliary have come up with an idea H-liich \riJl give some of" (he city's youth the opportunity to attend school fur the first time. The School Board has agreed to furnish a room and a teacher for physically handicapped children — those who because of their defects would not have the chance to attend regular classes. The Auxiliary will supply the "wom- aniKiwer" to assist the teacher and the special equipment for the classroom, and will assist with the redccoration of the room. Bulk of the financing (tor the Auxiliary's part of the pi-ognun) will come from sale of Easter Seals. The Arkansas Association for the Crippled lias promised the local group that it will apply funds in excess of those raised last year toward the special school. That's where local support can tie a big help. School Superintendent \V. B. Nicholson said, in making the announcement, that the board and school officials feel the community owes educational opportunities to these children as much as to normal children. \Ve echo these sentiments and recognize the difficulties (most, of them financial) which must be overcome before Blytheville can adequately take care ot" all of its handicapped children. But tin's project, regardless of how modest a beginning it Anight have, will be a distinct social asset because many products of tins school will emerge equipped to lead a normal life. Price Is Reasonable, So Pay Up for Health's Sake In the spring, a man's fancy is apt to turn lightly to thoughts of anything but garbage fees . . . but thai doesn't mean they aren't payable. City Clerk Bill Malin has announced .that the city means business and will get its money "one way or the other," And thus it should, for the garbage collection system is a vital factor in guarding the community's health. Sure, it would be nicer if the city furnished free garbage collection. H would also he nice if the city paved every -street in town this summer, erected a beautiful V and community building and got R new sewer and disposal plant in operation by fall. There are many things we would like to have, free if we could have them thai way. No doubt such a situation would make the city administration very happy (and very popular), too, Kilt such is not the case and 75 cents per month is a reasonable charge for this necessary service. If you've ever had to take care of your own garbage disposal, you'll agree. Pay your garbage fees promptly . , , and with n smile, if possible. Uphill Work The Swiss and tile Russians, of all people, appear to lie engii^nl in a race to see who ciin get up to the top of the world's tallest mountain first. It's Ml. Kvcresl, in the Himalayas, height 29,002 feet. As you might expect from such a David ;inrl Goliath sort of contest, tilings Kot off to an uneven start. Hnssia, slrnininK mightily and pomici'ously, \v;is reported to be "assembling" a task force of 150 men. The, quickly and ligluly, meantime, put five Alpinists in an airplane and told them to (jo to .Ml. Kvcr- ext and climb it. They're to gel help later, but the big job, as the Swiss see it, is to gel the show on the vond. • It would lie interesting to see Hie final stages of the contest—Swiss versus Russians, above Hie clouds, and Die lop of the world as the goal. We'll take the Swiss. Views of Others To Save the Nation The 4-polnt plan lor federal retrenchment announced today by the Transportation Asso- cintion of America Is unusual because of its .ranee. Do you know what Hie TAA is? Well, it is an organization formed of every element In the transport Industry with the sole aim of saving that Industry. It Is matte up of rcnrcse-.i- lalivcs of every form of carrier, of shippers, workers, consumers. It set out <1> to ascertain Ihe slate of transportation mid (2) to assure its solvency of operation—not railroads, not trucks and buse.s, not air lines, nor ocean and Inland waterway canters, not pipelines, bnt all of them. The TAA expects to report shortly on a feast- tic plan to co-ordinate the carriers. In its study of financial -setup, It has discovered tnat, like nil other Industry, transportation solvency Is threatened by excas.stVe_laxation. So the TAA sees that as a primary .step the nation's financial and fiscal policies must, be made sane. Sen. Hurry Hyrd hn-i shown clearly how the fantastic Truman budget can b« brought within reason. TAA Is squarely with Byrd on figures and blueprint. So TAA suggests simply this: Select 1952 candidates for Integrity, regardless ot party, pledge these candidates to a sound fiscal policy. Get out the voters. Meanwhile. Insist on the present Congress drawing a maximum line which no department or agency expenditures can exceed.

It's Not Too Late to Turn Back, Boys Erskine Joknson IN HOLLYWOOD Peter Ed son's Washington Column — Defense Mobilizer Wilson Denies He'll Resign Before Job Is Done WASHINGTON (NEA1 — Reports that Charles E. Wilson will soon quit his job n.s Director of Defense Mobilization are denied by his office. Washington rumor has been that Wilson was considering resignation as of April 2. shortly nfler making what was to be u farewell speech at U. S. jet engine tenlh anniversary celebration iu Lockland. Ohio. , Wilson publicly denied report be intended to tuiit in recent press conferen c e at Minneapolis. If he has any secret plans for quilting now. he has kept' news of it fro m his Was h I n g t o n staff. I'ctcr Olson As proof lie doesn't Intend lo quit, il is pointed out tlmt the U. S. boss has made official speaking en- Kagemcnls nil through April. May and Juno. Among others he'll make commencement address at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and gal n degree. Mr. Wilson is making no dates beyond July I. however, so way is clear for anything to happen after that. j Reasons given [or not wanting to quit now are Hint Defense Mobilization legislation renewal is still before Congress, nnd defense production is.not rcillly rolling the way he wants it to. Also, steel and other key Jubor situations nre critical. So his job isn't clone ami ready to turn over to n successor. .IOIIN' AI.AHAUON. the big fivci per cent mini ;uui sometime While! House crony of General Harry Vnughhn. has an application to get out of prison before V. S. Hoard of Parole. Maragon Is now serving an eiBbt-to-24-months sentence fbr perjury in Federal Reformatory ac Petersburg, Va. He began serving time last May 25. That made him eligible for parole Jan 25, 1952. He applied then, but was turned down. HLK wife and son are agnln trying lo get him out. Maragon was first given a job in the reformatory library. Somebody complained that that was too soft for him. So he was transferred lo Ihe laundry. He got sick while working there, and it's on the basis of his health and physical condition that the new application IMS been made lo get iiim sprung. * • » (J. S. SHOUI.n have a. labor force of over 10 million workers by 1954, according to present census estimates. The number may lie over 71 million. Whatever the figure. II will make post-war ridicule of the "00 million Jobs" idea look pretty silly. This growth of over len million U. S. workers In eight years has presented some real problems on how they can all be employed. By the end of this year, wilh an estimated labor force of 67.7 million. 60.3 million will be employed with unemployment of 1.4 million. In the employed figure, however, arc 3.ti million in the armed forces and 7,7 million working on defense production. This leaves only 55 million on non-defense jobs. In 1953. unemployment, Is expected io drop by 200,000 while lo lal employment is rising by 2.1 million. This would make a total employment of liB.-i million in labor force of 69.6 million. SI'AKK !• I, U C S on Russi planes shot down in Korea have been turned over to U. S. manufacturers for examination. This is part of the regular system of gathering intelligence on Soviet technology and production. Analysis of the Russian spark plugs by the Champion company in this country shows communist aviation engineers are over ten years behind U. S. technology. Quality ot the Russian plugs was so low that they would have flunked U. S. specifications even before the start of World War II. There was a big increase in export spark plug orders before fighting started in Korea. Many of the orders indicated China as ulllmale destination. U. S. manufacturers turned down these orders even before State Department applied export controls which today ban shipment of aviation parts to the Commies. • * • . .TIIK WAR between the sexes may be stirred up a little by „ new leaflet now being distributed through (he Women's Bureau in Department of Labor. It carries a big headline, "It's Still up to the Women to Prove They Can Handle Top-Level Jobs." Pointing out that, on the one hand, there are few types of work women can't do, that most women taking jobs get promoted and that there is increasing recognition of lire fact thai women should be promoted for merit, the Wo men's Bureau nevertheless admit.' what's wrong: 1. Women have lagged far behind men in atlaining better Jobs 2. Too many employers stil have to be convinced women are capable. 3.
