Don't Stop Now The planting a< ffiw months ngo of more and larger spring gardens Hum ever before in the history of Arkansas mis widely heralded ns evidence thai Arkansas farmers were turning to a system of living thai would eliminate all future need of any such wholesale relief program as thai which the Hod Cross brought to this state last winter. The gardens, and the greatly increased, feed crop acreage, are a splendid start, but the job has not been completed. In the lirsl place, while a spring garden is a line thing and a substantially helpful thing, it is the ycar- arouiid-•• garden that provides a really effective barrier' when the wolf comes nosing around the door. The Mississippi county families that will really live next winter, despite the low price that is in prospect for cotton, are the families thai keep their gardens producing throughout the summer and fall months', that put up enough lo carry them through the winter and early spring, have milk and butter from their own cow, meat from their own hogs, and poultry and eggs raised on the place. Don't forget the garden because of *he discouraging effects of a few weeks of hot dry weather, and don't fail to keep working .toward the other things that arc part of the live-at-home program.^ jyjlli^coUon at 8 cents a pound there is no other way to live. We can hear, somebody say that all of this is line talk but that it doesn't fit the case of the fellow who is just making a sharec.rop on somebody's else's place. Well, perhaps it doesn't, although most planters arc coining to realize that the little a tenant's garden, chickens, cow and pig cost him is a good investment. And anyway that is just another good argument, on top of a lot of others, for getting to be something besides a sharecropper. There is good Mississippi county land available to any good man on terms xo easy that almost- any man can meet them. And the sucriliccs involved in getting started ou a farm of one's own arc a small price to pay for the independence that the achievement brings. Our Responsibility Ever so often somebody raises a cheap tough by suggesting that the best Ihing our slatu legislature could do would be to pans a law dissolving itself for ten years and Ihus give Hie state a chance to recover. Not trying to be funny, President Hoover the other day let it be known that he was opposed to n special session of congress because of the ail- verse effect it might have upon an already ailing national economic situation. As a stalo and as a nation we have losl confidence, not merely in the men we have chosen to make our laws, but in, our own ability ti govern ourselves. We elect men to act for us at Ullle Mock or at Washington, and tremble, not without cause, for the safely of state and nation as they conic together to act in our behalf. The distrust and cynicism which mark our attitude toward our chosen representatives have their ju'stilicu- tion in a long record of governmental slupidily, selfishness and corruption, but let us not I'orget that the primary blame rests not upon the incompetent or dishonest men who so often are chosen to positions of responsibility, but upon you and me and our friends and neighbors—the people of Arkansas and of the United States—who have the power to make the government of thi;' stale and ol' this country whatever they wish it lo be. The Grand Jury In a rciwrl to President Hoover yesterday the Wickersham commission had the following to say about grand juries: "Today the grand jury is useful only as a general investigating body for inquiring into the. conduct of public officers and in case of large conspiracies. It should be retained as an occasional instrument for such purposes, and the rci|iiirement of it as a necessary basis of all prosecutions for infamous crimes should bd done away with." What tho commission found with respect, to federal grand juries, which we suppose it had in mind, is equally true of the grand juries which return indictments in our state courts. They contribute to the unnecessarily slow and cumbersome machinery of justice, involve considerable expense, and contribute next to nothing to law enforcement. MONDAY, 'JUNK 8, l<j| SIDE GLANCES By George Clark wears what nrc known ns cataract glasses. These glasses are made so that they l:clp to focus the Image properly on the retina. The person who lias ton imabl' to we for some time because ol the development of a cataract, who has been unable to play golf or to gel about and who then recovers his sight by the simple oueiation thai any competent specialist In diseases of the eye can perform, Is one of the most thankful of nil people for the benefits of modern medical, science. In a recent discussion of the subject In Hygeia, Dr. louts Lehrfeld urges the widest dissemination of the knowledge that people who have lost their sight by cataract can be helped by this technlc. No doubt, there are thousands of afflicted sgcd people who are helpless because they never learned that vision can be restored after cataracts have formed. TODAY IS THE-. ANIWRS I'tKSIlING IX ENGLAND On June 8, 1911, General John J. I'crshlng, who was to command the American expeditionary force: on the western front, arrived safely in England with his staff of h3 officers and 146 men. including privates and civilian attaches. On Landing at Liverpool he gave the following message to the British public: "We are very prourt and glad to be the standard bearers of our "Wo arc facing u crjsj.-. gentlemen—Our competitors have nTatton Zl'lTln^rL^BrHbi/soi'i" added still another English walnut and two more peanuts,TI,c welcome which we have receiv- to their tudjfc cream liar." cd Is magnificent ami deeply appreciated.
