Clarified Position He said he was clarifying his position toward Bonds in response to appeals by numerous citizens and that It was his wish that the "present State Board membership will...bring info 'our political family a man who jneasures the value of his service by his professional responsibility to the school children rather than by his political obligations to any one person or group of persons." Bonds said, in his reply, that he hoped Cherry "will abandon his bare-knuckled...effort to intimidate the honorable men and women who make up the State Board of Education." He said "such Interference" would be "utterly at variance wllh every known promise of Mr Cherry to take politics out of the operation of our state agencies." Bonds* stated that he had no recriminations against Cherry, that "much of his knowledge of me comes from what might be regarded as prejudiced sources." he did not elaborate. Bonds said he had assumed "in common decency" he would have the opportunity to rnake known his feelings to Cherry privately.

Yet it is the combined Judgment of more than 2,000 participating newsmen Hint the October survey showed a general trend toward Eisenhower. As they see it, there is little indication Eisenhower now might capture many more states than expected originally.

GOAL (Continued from Page l» f ta ' e ™f»t. 5"!d. "lhat avoidable hardship is being suffered by the industry, the miners and by the economy as a whole in the con- tmired Inactivity of the mines while orderly procedures are being followed. "I have as a result of'this conference, and In the common good urged Mr. Lewis as president or the United Mine Workers to use his best efforts (o effect at once u resumption of work In the mines Mr. Lewis has assured me of his co-operation." Lewis and Moses had appealed earlier to Putnam that he approve the full $1.90 raise, despKe the WSB's ruling, contending that the miners don't get certain "fringe" benefits enjoyed by most oilier workers. Will Cost More They argued (hat these greater vacation, holiday and shift premium benefits actually cost more than the 40 cents a day, or a nickel an hour, disapproved by the WSB The WSB's public nnd Industry members had reasoned Just the contrary, saying everything cop- sidered, the miners are well paid compared with other groups ol workers. . The. Lewis-Moses appeal made the argument that paying direct money wages (o ihe miners, instead of giving thorn paid vncnlions and other benefits, encourages the diggers (o mine more coal. • "It Is our belief." the Lewis- Moses appeal said, "that the negotiation of compensation Increases in terms of wages rather than in terms of fringes contributes to the stabilization in the stimulus it adds to productivity." The situation was somewhat comparable to what happened in 1943 Then the War Labor Board, which like the present WSB hnrt the job of controlling wages, balked at allowing Lewis to get as large a pay boost as he wanted for the miners. The miners went out on strike four times that year, alia cruclla period in the war. Finally, the late Secretary of -the Interior Harold Ickes, who was' in ''control of the coal mines under government seizure, gave Lewis-about six times what the War Labor Board though! was proper. FIRES (Continued from Pa«« 1) Ing and precaution today. At, this time of year grass fires can create considerable hazards Chief Head said and added that certain precautions, such as having water handy and burning a strip around the edge of the yard first, can go a long way towards diminishing- the danger that the fire might spread. The cost to the city of the average grass fire when an emergency fire call Is placed Is «28 to 138 snld the chief. And In most cases If the proper care were taken, It would be unnecessary to call the Fire Department, he added Chief Head said the department will, be available on Sundays to burn grass In areas which might be difficult to manage, and requested persons desiring such 'iclp to call and give their address Care also should be taken, the chief satd, to cjieck pipes and flues when putting up stoves for the winter.

Main — Blythevilb what is water worth? Water is a commodity so precious that no tyrant has ever dared deny it to his people. The earliest records of our civilization are linked to the spring and the waterhole, the river and the weH. The Children of Israel faltered in the wasteland and were ready to revolt until Moses struck the rock and brought forth a spring. Wars have been fought over wafer rights and once mighty nations have vanished because their water resources failed. Men have battled to the death over the last few drops in a canteen. Formidable fortresses, impregnable in other respects, have fallen because of an insufficient water supply. Ships' masters have had to risk the destruction of their vessels and the slaughter of their crews because water shortages forced land- erl les because of failing wells and dried- up water courses. Families have given up their homes and deserted their prop- ings on savage isles. London was virtually destroyed by fire in the seventeenth century and Chicago reduced to ashes in 1S71 because sufficient water could not be delivered to the right place at the right lime. What is water worth? Water is beyond price _ so far beyond price that water is fre« of all price. Blytheville Water Co. "Woter It Your Cheapest Commodity"
