A Challenge To Business Money rates in America today are extremely low. This fact eonstiliitus a "great opportunity for business and industrial concerns, Init not, ninny will be able to takn advantage of it, according to Dr. Stephen 1. Miller, executive manager of the National Association of Credit Men. Following the 1021 depression, Ur. Miller points cut, there ,w;is uu abundance of cheap money. Big organizations, with high credit rankings, could and <lid take advantage of it. Most of the little fellows could not. Thus the extraordinarily high profits of tlic following prosperous years were largely reaped by the big fellows, who had borrowed at low rntes of interest and had (invested their funds in projects that later became lucrative. Hence, as Dr. Miller points out, cheap money today indicates a more keen competition when, prosperity returns; and the sninll business firm is more than ever under the necessity of 'gaining increased efficiency. If it fonts to do so it will be unable to ccm- iwt.e with the big firms that have bctin iiblc to (tike advantage'of cheap interest rates- Automobile Taxation With a view, perhaps, to comforting Arkansas motorists who pay -higher automobile license and gasoline taxes than those) of all but a very few of the American states there has Ijcen issued from Little KocU a statement of the high cost of owning an automobile in certain foreign countries. It might hnvc been added that largely as a result of these extremely high ta.xea the farmers and industrial and clerical workers of foreign countries get about afoot or on bicycles. In Europe and Latin-America passenger automobiles are luxuries enjoyed only by the relatively well to do. A similar, will prevail here if we don't slop piling up taxes. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Hitting the Speed ColdiilWS 'rf&V motor vehicle Inw ought to bo of interest to other states, ' if only because it succeeds in wiping out the small-town speed Imp. .This is done by n stipulation that motorists can go on about their business, after an arrest for a traffic violation, vijiUiout funiishiujj appearance security. Furthermore, the summons must specifically describe the offense of which they are accused. They need not appear for trial Tor five days after the arrest. Hero is a law well worth copying. The speed trap is an unholy nuisance; a bit of law enforcement that is not concerned with safety on the highways, hut that is simply a "racket." for the enrichment of cow-town treasuries. Colorado seems to have found a lino way of dealing with it. Laugh and the world lnuglis with you.

When the Mid-South Association was set up last year In Memphis, combining many of the members and some ol (lie officers of the Arkansas and Tennessee Associations working with the National Association known as tho American Co-operative • Cotton Association, ft flat handling charge) of J2.60 a bale or less was put in the conlruct. The Mid-South Association hns just made Us report for Hie your up to dale on the, cost of handling cotton this yew. The Mld-South's coats per balo have Ijccn, Including salaries, expenses of moving the office to Memphis, tho salaries and rciA. of receiving stations nnd alt of the things that go Into handling cotton, around 110 cents i>ev bale. Add to that then an estimated charjje o( $1 per bule for handling and selling In, the national assuclalion and you have; 11 total bale cost of $1.80 per bale Thnt Is decidedly below the estimated cost of 52.50 a. bale. That Is getting the cost of marketing _colton down to where 11 belongs mid we believe such a record as has been made by the Mid-South Association deserves the continued support und loyally of every cotton producer lt^ Arkansas. Not only have we been able tu set, a better advance for our cotton. It has been marketed and Is being carried tn u most economical manner. —Arkansas Farmer.

NEW YORK Gilbert Swan War.ted—Bran Tickers (To the editor:) As it has been iucli ai long time since I have icard from any of you I will give an account of myself. About the last, letter I wrote this paper was In March, 1918. from Bordeaux, when I would five the killers to the- sailors down at Bas- •;aus (American douks in France) ind they would mall them in New York.

"The story went that he was celebrating the discovery of a gold mine, but the whispering was that this was n press agent stunt arranged by the! Santa Fo railroad.' "He had mimed out two locomotives trying to break all castboutid records. A\ any rate, when he arrived at the hotel the first tiling he did was to order 44000 worth of scrambled eggs.

CHURCH EXCUSES \ .By Georjc W. n»rh«m— — Mother catnc to see us last week and as usual she asked me about my church. Mother has such old- lashioncd ways. She thinks a person should actually put the chinch ahead of everything in one's life. Nov.; I think th? church is all right but there are other tilings that must be kept up. Of course, slin did not say very much only she spoke about Sister and Junior ai(d wanted to know about was net lair to the children; that they were entitled to such traiix- ing as the church could give Ihcm while they were youny. I didn't tell her about how our crowd entertained. I'm sure It would be a shock as she is very old-fashioned I'm afraid I haven't quite lived up to her expectations and (he training she gave me. Mother is one of these people who I dees not believe that children should their training. So I just told h;r 05 sent to. Sunday School and that I did not think they \vera .
