Knudsen, head of Blytheville's Better Business Bureau, reports that the old •"smuggled gooda" racket is back with us. Here's the pitch, if you haven't already memorized it: A salesman confidentially tells you that he has smuggled Irish'linen, British wool or something equally as valuable. Because the goods are strictly "hot," he's letting them go at a sacrifice, un. derstand. Only person who sacrifices in this deal is the buying public. The goods are invariably inferior . . . the wool usually cotton or a cotton-rayon combination. • Reports have readied local Chamber of Commerce officials' cars that this old bromide is being ravived once more and that it has been practiced successfully in this locality^ Thus far, no reports from Blythe- yille itself — but.then, not many are going to admit to being that big a sucker. To avoid such a poor investment: Buy your goods from merchants you know. Amendment 43 Still Offers Arkansas Industrial Hope Marcus George of the Little Rock Democrat has come up with some interesting bits of information concerning how Mississippi's municipal bond is- IUM for Industry is working. And he gets his information pretty straight from the horse's mouth, strictly figuratively speaking, of course. Last time we opened our mouths concerning th« proposed constitutional amendment which would permit Arkan- BU to launch a similar program, we had painttd for us a multitude of rosy pictures on the Arkansas industrial situation. • Opponents 'of the measure said that after all, Mississippi was not nearly as well off H« Arkansas in its program for getting industry. The proposed amendment was scored as "reluctant socialism" and we read of flowery phrases concerning » new program which would bring -private financing into the industrial picture. The frosts of early October find the flowery phrases withering with late cotton blooms and corns Nov. 4 th« rot- SATURDAY. OCT. 11. IMI •r« mu«t ctill d«cide on wh*th«r they are going to take active «t«p« to attract industry or if they arc going to await the salvation of private capital. At quoted by Mr. G4sorsre, hwre'i what Raymond F. Wallace, professor of industrial management. University of Mississippi, said regarding the program: "It is probable . . . that th« companies which have received (the) subsidies will pay state and local taxes totaling more than the amount of the subsidy .which they received. "The BAWI program probably ha» not attracted any new plants to the •tate which were not also attracted by several other factor* of equal Importance." And read that last one carefully. It says, in effect, that the program has supplemented other attractions (such as labor). It docs not say it has not attracted new plants. And local Chamber of Commerce officials, who have made contact after con-, tact with industrialists, say that this city has already lost industry because it was not ready with a program by which it could guarantee construction of a building. Only thing an industry receives under such a program is credit. It carries interest, principal and insurance payments with it rental. Passing of proposed constitutional amendment 43 will eliminate one more handicap under which communities of this state operate in attempting to gain industry. Healthful Precedent Is Set An NEA dispatch, published by this newspaper, reveals that both General Eisenhower and Governor Stevenson, are in sound health. In the opinion of their doctors, they are fully fit physically and emotionally t6 serve as President. This is good news for the American people and the'candidates were wise in permitting it to be published. The office of President' is the most important that, this nation can bestow. It is also one that places severe physical and mental demands on its holder. The American peqple have a right to know that the man they elect to fill it is capable of meeting the strain; that he is not, as President Roosevelt was in 1944, ill and infirm. ' General Eisenhower "and Governor Stevenson have set a desirable precedent. Similar reports should be demanded from all future candidates. Views of Others 'Stay South, Young Man' That old sayjng "GO West, Young Man" should be changed to "Stay South, Young Man," In the opinion of The Outlook. The other day we wore looking through a newspaper when our eyes fell on a large display ad put out by one.of the leading railway systems. In effect, the advertising copy of that ad urged southern youth to stay In their own back yard. No truer words could have been «poken. For right here In the South, youngsters can hold fast to those dreams . . . about the opportunltlei that Is theirs tn the land-they love., New frontiers are opening up repeatedly In southern Industry, agriculture and commerce. And if a young man — or woman — has the drive, he or she can advance just as fast in this competitive world of ours by remaining In the South. Too often, youth ... as well as otr elders . . . feel the "grass Is greener on the other si^e of the hill." The youth of the South today can be the leaders of tomorrow ... by staying In the Southland, —Alexander city (Ala!) Outlook.

WASHINGTON —(NBA)— Synthetic cheese, synthetic milk ami synthetic ice cream—made from vegetable oils instead of butter fat —are now providing an Increasing threat to the U. S. dairy industry. In the making here is another trade war similar to the oleo-mar- garlne-butter battle that went'on' for so many years.' National Milk Producers' Federation officials from the dairy states lave been meeting in Washington ,o plan their strategy in the new trade~war. They are naturally opposed to the\sub- stftution of vegetable fats for butter fat in any food product. Their policies to beat down the competition will 'be for mnlly adopted at • the f e d e r a t i.on's meeting In Atlan- ftitf titn ta In November. The Institute of Shortening and Edible Oils, which Is the trade association for the vegetable fat Industry, will say nothing for the record. But it is known that this industry is trying to promote Its products in every way. The principal arguments advanced In favor of the .vegetable oil substitutes, synthetics and Imi tatloiis of the dairy products is that they are from a third to a half cheaper. Makers of these product; now on the market claim that It Is almost impossible to tell the difference between the vegetable and animal fat foods. The dairy Industry naturally disputes these claims At th3 present time there are 'ederal laws and regulations setting cheese : standards. Any cheese made, from vegetable oils—known to the trade as "filled"- cheese— comes under. Bureau of Internal Revenue regulation and must pay a federal tax. Pilled milk is also under federal law. Pilled milk Is ordinarily made by the addition of cheaper vegetable fats to skim milk, after the higher priced butter fat is irernoved for separate sale. There Is'also a soy milk on the market, but it doesn't have the taste of cow's milk. • ' There are at present only limited federal standards for Ice cream, and this Is the opening which may provide the vegetable oil Industry with Its chance for more active competition to win the market. There are 48 seprrute state laws regulating the manufacture of Ice crehir.. Some of these laws aren't very tight and others aren't rigidly enforced. Twenty-four states ban the use of vegetable oils In Ice cream. Texas, Missouri, Illinois and Oklahoma laws provide the most open standards. Texas even has a separate standard for the manufacture of a vegetable oil Imitation Ice cream known as Mellowrine. That. Is where this synthetic ice cream Industry got Its start. Missouri and Illinois permit the sale of the new products under fancy trade names, but ^ most ol them go under the designation of "frozen dessert." Vigorously upholding the Integrity of the original product Is the International Association of Ice Cream Manufacturers, which is the trade association or the industry. To this association, it Isn't Ice manufacturers h: make both prodi want to be caught cream unless It contains huder'fat. What has happened in the Industry, however, Is lave : luws. that many decided to They don't short, with their market taken away from them by a cheaper competitor, as oleo took away about half of the butter market. So there is a war within a war going on'here. In 19M the federal Food and Drug Administration began hearings to set federal standards for ice cream. The hearings were suspended during the war, but were resumed again in 1950Y In April, 1951, Food Administration Issued a and Drug finding i Federal Register that any product rnovlng In Interstate commerce as ice cream which was adultereated by the use of fats other than butter fat would be subject to libel and seizure. This finding has been' sus talned by an Indiana court dec! slon under which the adultereated shipment wo* destroyed. Hearings to set still more rigid federal standards for Ice cream have been going on Intermittently over the past year. The majo dispute has. been over the use o emulsiflers, or softeners, as in bread. Hearings are now in recess but will be re-opened'In Novem ber. It Is hoped to close the hear Ings this year and issue the new standards in 1953. So far, the vegetable oil Indus try has made no move to get fed eral authority in the new sian dards for the use of their prod nets In synthetic diary products Such a move would of course open up a dispute that would take long to settle as the margarine butter battle. the Doctor Says — By EDWIN P. JORDAN. M. D. Written for NKA Service There are undoubtedly some | off than those who use reasonable readers of this column who should never look at it. These are the ones with active imaginations and worrying dispositions who think they have every disease which Is discussed. Some can read about their bodes and the diseases which might affect them without being bothered, but those who are In constnm 'ear and worry about gelling blck cause themselves a great deal of distress and do not accomplish anything worth-while. One should not forget that nature Is a great healer. Most people who become sick, even with serious conditions, recover entirely. Others who fall 111 progress to a stage where the disease from which they suffered has been conquered, even though some bad effects mny remain. Still others may even Incur serious effects such as the loss of a limb from disease or Injury and yet be able to resume reasonably llve and useful lives. There Is another thing which people should remember when reading about the many diseases and injuries which afflict mankind. That is, even though people could get a great many diseases they never do. The chances are that the average person will encounter only a few of the serious conditions described in the books recovery from these will take place, thanks to nature and medical or surgical treatments. The constunt fear that one might catch plague, cholera, yellow fever, tuberculosis, or whalnot, Is far worse than the actual danger to which we are exposed. The people who *M inrtnue ar* wottc precautions and then take their chances without undue worry. Worrier Becomes Neurotic The worrier becomes what is mown as a neurotic, frequently shopping around from place to place asking for an explanation for something which may exist in :helr minds rather than in their bodies. There Is a lot of difference between being afraid of getting every disease in the medical books knowing that such diseases exist. Also, it is good tn recognize serious symptoms early so that the disease responsible can get prompt treatment. But anyone who cannot take this attitude and is in constant sweat of fear would be better off to think and read other things. ry Hirsch, who would be a fa bridge expert if he didn't wast much time attending to hi business as a dress manufacturer Larry began by hoping that Eas leld the king of clubs and the the suit would break 3-2.

But It's Dana Andrews' private- eye theory that "dishonest movJe who held the king of clubs, since declare!- could be sure that East leld a singleton club at most. West had opened the three of diamonds, Hirsch remembered, which meant that West might have started with either four or five diamonds. (The lead was obviously^ fourth-best, and West might or might not have the deuce of diamonds as a fifth card In the suit.) Henc« East had started with the rest of the diamond suit, either six or seven of them. East had already followed to four spades and two trumps. Hence there was room in his hand for one club if he had only six diamonds; and for no clubs at aH If he held seven diamonds. After working this out, Hirsch led a low club from his hand, prepared to play low from the dummy. If East won the trick, he wouid have to give declarer a ruff and a discard. If West won the trick, he would then have to lead ay from his king of clubs and give declarer a free finesse for the rest of the tricks.
