One Can't Afford to Hoard; It's a costly game to play From President Truman o n down, •we've had repeated warnings that foolish hoarding of food and other necessities can lead only one way—to rationing and price control. As «veryone recognizes, it isn't the occasional housewife alone who accounts for this rush to slock up in fear of war induced scarcities. In times like these, there ara always some merchants and speculators who give scare-buying »n extra shove in their selfish desire to reap rich returns while the getting is good. The threat of control only spurs such individuals to greater effort to beat the clamping down of the lid. And so the pace of the trend accelerates. Most people, of course, are loo sensible and patriotic to indulge in hoarding, especially when there's so little excuse for it as now. And most businessmen won't stoop to encouraging such practices, either. In fact, some high- minded firms have taken up the cry against them. A striking example of this comes from Macy's, the huge New York department store. Its appeal for sanity was set forth in full-page ads in the New York newspapers. Macy's message makes a perfect editorial on the subject. Some e.xcerpls: "So far as \ve can see, there's no important shortage of anything, right now. Our own counters are bulging with merchandise. In many, many lines there's a surplus. "And America, s productive capacity today is at such a level—nearly double what it was in laBU—(hat it can CDIH; with just about everything except a stampede of hoarding and panic-buying. . . . "This struggle in Korea may well last for a long time. But many experts believe it will remain limiled in area and scope. ' ! \el suppose the worst happens, suppose we do, despite all we hope and pray for, become involved in another full-scale wai 7 "All the more reason why every sensible American—and every decent American—should look on hoarding with revulsion. It always plays squarely into the hands of our enemies. "In any state of affairs, peace, half- peace, or all-out war, hoarding is the worst thing we can do. Hoarders only hurt themselves. A n d their families. And their neighbors. "So buy what you need or really want. Bui please don't be stampeded into buying what you don't want. You'll pay for it twice. You'll pay for it because you'lkbe spending money with no immediaU benefit to yourself. And you'll pay for it again because it wiij help raise the prices you'll later have to pay for most everything." That says it plainly enough. Hoarding is a self-defeating game in which everybody loses. J.t's all stop engaging in it now. The Least We Can Do— Senator Tart of Ohio is complaining that Mr. Truman's economic mobilization proposals would give the President ''arbitrary control" over manufacturers and farmers. That is indeed correct. IJut no matter by what name you choose to disguise it, this is a war we're fighing in Korea. And war (cuds lo bo arbitrary. It's arbitrary, for instance, in the control it exercises over the lives of U. S. troops on Ihe baUlctront. A month ago they were either going through the calm routine of garrison soldiers in Japan, or were back in the United Stales. Von might say: "They asked for it They joined the army." It's not so simple as that. \Ve're all one people, 'ihose are uliK soldiers out there. Ami the very least we can do is lo make every neccssury home front sacrifice for their support—without grumbling. Nobody likes compulsions and "arbitrary controls." But you don't die from them. They're a small price to pay to provide American fighting men with (he weapons and reiiuprcemenls they need. Views of Others Redistricting Preliminary census figures /or Arkansas indicate that the state will speak with one lesa voice In Congress in 1053, The loss of one ot Arkansas': seven-man delegation b,t.5 been anticipated ever since 1040. But the certainty of the reduction hinged on the 1950 census reports. And unofficial figures reveal that Arkansas has •llffereri a population lass of 48.043 over the (en- year period, while most other states have had * gain. The apportionment of seals in Ihe. House of Representatives is provided for in the Constitutions! intent of representation according to population. The House, by law, now has 435 scats. After each state Is apportioned one seat, the remainder 3H7 are parceled out on the basis of the number of citizens—non-taxed Indians excluded —in each state. Those states which have made the biggest gains in population in' the last ten years will acquire seats In Congress from states which have curtained lasses and even from some states which have not kepi pace with others. Western slates will be the chief beneficiaries ol the reapporlionment. Arkansas will not, be required lo do any thins about the elimlnatioiiV'bf one of Its congressmen until it receives official word of the reduction from the . clerk of the House alter Congress convenes in January, 1951. (Actually the "census figures do not become official until the president rcport.5 them shortly after Congress convenes.) The state may effect the reduction by electing nix representatives at large. Or the legislative may redistrict tlie state into six congressional districts to macth the new number of congressmen allotted to Arkansas. The prohibitive cost of statewide campaigns would seem to rule out the 'first method. Moreover, the second method would probably provide truer representation of the state's voters. In one sense the pending reapporlionmcnl will be a good thing for Arkansas. It has been 50 years since the present districts were set up, and in that time some of them have become extremely lopsided. For example, the First District, according lo the last census, contained 385,065 people, while (he. Third District contained only 170.576. Census or no census, it is time to redraw the district lines so that the people of the state will be equally reprcscnlatcd in Washington, —Arkansas Gazette So They Say Before retiring at night I never fall lo utter the simple prayers that I learned at my mother's knee. --Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker. president of Eastern Airlines. * » » There won't be a getting together of conservatives unless Ihcy abandon the name of the Republican parly. I believe (hat (lie Southern people will always vote the Democratic ticket. —Elilis Arnall, ex-Governor of Georgia. + » + For the first time in many months occupational shortages, besides the usual hard to fill undesirable tow paying jobs, are being reported. —Robert C. Gocdwin, director of Bureau of Employment Security. * • « The (Republican) (home will be to "get out Ihe Republican vole" this year, and lo work at the precinct level to enlist the support of ^ potential voters who didn't go to the polls In 1948. —Guy George Gabrielson, Republican National Chairman. * * » By no juggluif of words or twisting ot ideas can a citizen of this country justify an alliance with the forces of dictatorship and communistic enslavement. —Dwlght D.

DOCTOR SAYS '"" ° teervcrs at Lake ' j A stroke of apoplexy means that there has been some bleeding from one of the blood vessels in the brain or that a cloth has developed In one of the arteries or veins ot (he brain. Either one causes damage to the delicate brain tissues .which that particular blood vessel supplies with blood and Interferes wilh the functions which are controlled by the injured part of the brain. Since both hemorrhage and a clot usually occur rapidly, the paralysis and interference with bodily functions is likely to be sudden.

Or may be bent on trying to get the Chinese Reds seated—or is getting set for further Communist expansion and wants to spike U.N. action by the veto power—or might even be ready to make a peace gesture by ending the Korean upheaval. There are other possibilities. However, the mind of the Kremlin is as inscruitable as the Egyptian Sphynx, and the world won't know the truth until Stalin gets ready lo disclose It. There is, as I see it, only one thing of which observers can be rtcad sure at this juncture. This puzzling move by Moscow doesn't mean any fundamental change in the Red program of world revolution for the spread of Communism.
