Blood Giving Shouldn't Fall To Same Few Donors Only a few days remain before tVie Bed Cross bloodmohile pays Biylhe- •vilte its third visit . . . and the city is woefully short of blood donors. In order to meet its IfiO-pint quota, tt is necessary to get approximately 200 pledged. As of now, the Red Cross of- ffice barely has 150 pledges, which means chat for the first time, the city will fail to meet its qtiola. Even more discouraging is the fact that the present list of pledges is loaded with names of those who have given previously. In H city of more than Ifi,- 000 persons, the same tried and true 100 should not. have to carry the load . . . although giving blood is an inconvenience at worst. Inconvenience, hut not privation. T.-ack of interest, decadent Americanism, selfish attitudes nil contribute, to make a tough job of one that would be reasonably simple if 50 per cent of the people were willing to give blood painlessly to those who spent agonizing hours fighting for our nation, some facets of which certainly must !>R sicke-n- ly discouraging to them.

The blood mobile will he here Monday from 10 a.m. to •! p.m. at American Legion Hut. utility rat« incru«« will tht Arkansas PSC conduct a public hearing on th« matter. This is the procedure according to state law. If no protest is registered, the increase becomes permanent, as bitter experience has shown. A plan to finance the phone rate whereby each telephone subscriber will be asked to donate 25 or 50 cents is .being contemplated by the city. Ordinarily, it would be up to the city to foot the bill, but Rlytheville just doesn't have Ihe money. While the rate nl which such donations are received can be partially construed as an indication of public opin- . ion in this matter, it must be unler- stood lhat the donors are merely setting up the machinery for a rate case. Although we organise a team, there is no assurance of winning a pennant. The I'RC, after hearing both sides, will pick the winner. We favor such a public hearing. We have snid before that Arkansas law should lie changer] to provide for mandatory public hearings on utility rate increase requests. This is only fair to the consumer. And such a public hearing should, if lit all possible, be conducted at no added expense to the taxpayer or utility customer. V!'. .,;•. ••••',. the two utilities' requests for higher rates, for their right to such increases can only be decided by experts. Hut v/e do deplore the fact that Arkansas law provides the consumer scant protection and representation, and then only at a price. Views of Others VVoste of Federal Funds There may or may not be politics in the Senate subcommittee's report on alleged inexcusable waste in construction of U. S. air bases in North Africa, but at least it is certain this Isn't the only case ol waste of federal funds in recent years. Here are minor but important examples: The Federal Security Administration is authorizing the expenditure of $10.000 this fiscal year for an investigation now underway at Cornell University of "tolerance for environmental stress in aged and neu'-born sheep and goaU." The rjonts referred (o are not American taxpayers. At Northwestern University federal funds to the amount ot S12.000 have hccn allocated for a study of "unconscious factors governing courtship and male selection." Then $7,500 has been made available for study of cultural and psychiatric factors in I he mental health of the Huttcrltes." This Is a Federal Security AdminlstraUon project, although Administrator Oscar E\virT"gj'~reportcdIy recently admitted that lie doesn't Know where or what or who the Hutlcrltes are, Piicl the Library of Congress also is uncertain oti the subject but thinks they live "somewhere in South Dakota." H is because of these atid many other bizarre spending projects lhat the American Assembly recently went on record In support of Scnnte hill 013, whirh would establish a Congressional Budget With competent experts outside of Congress to study and Inform that body how spending can be reduced without hazarding the nation's safety. —Jopiin (Mo.)

Rate Case Costs Point To State Law's Weakness The City of Blyllievillc mnvocl in a direction agrecnhlr lo all when it decided to fight rate increases Hint have been temporarily granted to RlvtheviUe Water Co. and Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. It is, however, .in unf.ortnn.ito wording of Arkansas law that makes rate cases expensive propositions, especially when it is the protest ants who are least able to afford them. In the case of the telephone rate increase, a number of Arkansas cities are joining efforts and sharinp costs. As far as the water rate increase in concerned, the city must pro it alone. We are not attempting to decide here and now whether these rate, increases arc sufficiently justified to he made permanent by the Public Service Commission. Only experts, after long and carefu! study, can determine this. It is because of this that the rate case fights are necessary.

For years Department of Justice has wanted to start action against some of the b i g labor union monopolies for their actions in restraint of trade But U. S attorneys have always been blocked in such actions be cause the unions were considered exampt from anti-trust prosecu tton. Introduction of a murder and racketeering angle into the New York teamsters' case puts a differ' ent aspect on the situation.

He Iherefore led a low trump from his hand and won with dummy's jack. East's nine of spades looked ominous to South, and he therefore searched for a way to make his contract even against a 4-1 trump break. After some thought,, he led a heart from the dummy and discarded the last club from his own hand. West ruffed with the six of spades, and wondered what to do next. He couldn'i afford to lead out his two remaining trumps since dummy would win nnd run the rest of the hearts. West there fore returned the jack of clubs. South now had to .abandon the trumps and also had to abandon dummy's established hearts, cashed the ace of dimaonds, rutfin discounts the report that the plane ] a, diamond with dummy's lov. exploded as it crossed the sonic barrier.
