Membership Drive Reflects Credit Although unheralded since the first week of its beginning,'the Chamber of Commerce drive to obtain a record 800 memberships has been"progressing with s sureness which reflects credit both on this city and the chamber's able Membership Committee. ^From its inception, the project— designed to give the ciiy a financial muscle to flex to attract industry—has been marked with enthusiasm heretofore rare in similar enterprises. Response from merchants, who have not enjoyed a particularly lively year business-wise, has been good. Late reports from the Membership Committee show the number is now nearing the 600 mark. The chamber has never had as many as 350 memberships until this year." 1 Thus the movement to give Blythe- viile economic balance has been given a spirited start, thanks to untiring committee work and the awareness of the need for industry on the part of the city's businessmen. Succeeding moves toward the goal will be left up to the other chamber committees and members. Whether the fattened budget will mean new iridus- try for BlytheviHe in 1050 is questionable. . However, with natural gas for this area nearer a reality every day, the increased working revenue does mean that the city has armed its chamber to take advantage of any opportunity which presents itself and lo otherwise promote BlytheviHe for the best interests of all. Peace With Russia Depends On How Strong We Become In ironic mood the eminent scientist, Albert Einstein, says there may be some doubt how we'll fight the next war but none at all about the one after that. In World War IV, he says, the weapons will be rocks. His wry comment accurately mirrors the profound concern felt everywhere by scientists, statesmen and ordinary men over the future peace o£ the world. Since President Truman's announcement that we're going to build a hydrogen bomb, there's been a rash of proposals aimed at staving O if another global conflict. Senator.McMahon, Connecticut Democrat, advises a ?50,000,000,000 world-' wide Marshall Plan to include Russia and her satellites. Senator Tydings/ Maryland Democrat, calls for a world disarmament parley to "end the world's nightmare of fear." A number of atomic scientists want the United Stales to promise to uso the projected hydrogen bomb only if first attacked with a similar weapon. The 1500-man Federation of American Scientists proposes that, a new, nonpartisan commission wholly divorced from the United Nations re-examine the outlook for control of atomic bombs. These plans offered by earnest, sober-minded men only serve to intensify Hie anguish of (he world's dilemma at this critical moment. The dilemma is this: The prospect of I ho hydrogen bomb hits made thu specter of war infinitely more terrifying Hum ever before! All of us believe another war would ruin our civilization and (hat therefore-we must avoid it. Yet the rush toward this frightening holocaust goes on without check. It does so because the brake that could halt this headlong race is beyond our grasp, a solul, genuinely effective peace agreement with Russia. For, if you discount the chance that Germany may rise again, the Soviet Union is Ihe only potential aggressor in sight. Every single proposal put forth these days in the interest of peace depends in the end on winning an honest accord with Moscow. But all the evidence' we have—and now discouragements are piling up almost daily—suggests that Kussia is totally untrustworthy. Desperate voices have been pleading for "just one more try" with the Russians. But, in the bluntest statement to come from our government in many months, Secretary of State Dean Acheson has ruled out any new approach to the Soviet Union on the ground it would be a useless effort. There can be no peace with Russia, he said, until tni<s country and the West make themselves'so strong that the men in the Kremlin become convinced peare is the wisest course. For strength and force are the only language they understand, and any agreement not so supported is without value to the world because the Russians will break it when rt suits their political ends. Acheson has spoken with admirable wisdom and cow-age. Jfis words should : help to,sot us on a firm course toward the strength that alone can lead'toward peace.

Damage totaling millions of dollars has t>cen done to Arkansas ro^.ds by our Hooding rivers Thousands of families have been driven trom their homes by high water. ' !-'arincrs in the river valleys ore worried by the possibility that their planting may te de , laved _ Now compare that picture of loss and suiicr- ing with a few figures in President Truman's budget for the next year. While rivers destroy our roads, he doles out a few millions for flood control in the state, and asks that no new projects be started. While rivers drive our people !rom homes they toiled to build, the President asKs for one and one-third b iiii OI , dollars to Ii n! ,, lc c puollc housing-arid wants it extended to middle income families. While river-land farmers look out on thctr drowned acres, wondering If they can plant them In time, the President lenucsts 350 million dollars for_ reclamation work u, u,c West, to open new farms.

In coronary occlusion there is ft sudden closing of one of the blood vessels supplying the heart muscle. We hear and read of coronary thrombosis often 1 and especially O f those cases in which the outcome has not been good.

The "something" Ls oi course "peace," or "the road to peace." ThLs does not mean lhat the Vnerican capital is completely frustrated, by the world-shaking events the ]a^t few wee.ks. There is no .nclination on the pnrt of public leaders to give up. lie down and die quietly ill the face of Insurmountable obstacles. But there Ls a. vast ernpinj for new solutions' to old problems. When President Truman marie public his orders for the Atomic Energy CommLssion to proceed with research on a hydrogen superbomb, there was a feeling that -his would Insure peace. The mere development of a weapon 10CO times more powerful than the A-bomb was expected to check the Russians from any further ag'^ression. This feeling of security and confidence gave way rapidly to a feeling that the Russians, too, mriht be able lo make a super-bomb. And IViese that Dr. Klaus Fuchs. German-born doubts were enlarged by dUclesures British scientist, might have.given the Russians many secret^ of American iinow-how in atomic science. The result has been a new upsurge of demands for greater security nnd toughening of loyalty Investigations for government employes. Attempts to Snuff Hell-Bomb's Fuse But (he bigger and more Import- ant reaction hns been n desire to 'find some new preventive against the use of super-bombs. Sen. Bricn McMahon proposed his five-year, $50,000.000,000 Marshal! Plan tor the world m exchange for atomic disarmament. Sen. Millard Tydings of Maryland went even further to propose complete disarmament, do'.vn to the rifle. On top of these specific proposals from the chairman of (he Senate .•Uctnic Energy and National Defense Committees .there was built up a new Interest in^llie "Federal Union" idea. This now takes the form of a resolution before Congress to explore Ihe possibilities of a stronger world government among the seven North Atlantic Pact nations, at present united for military deelnse alone. Hearings on thLs' proposal -before a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee had been arranged some time before. Coming just when they did, at the peak o' interst In Ml H-bomb and th McMnlion and Tydiims speeches, the testimony-for the Federal Union of nations by Sen. Sates Knfnuver of Tennessee, former Supreme Court Justice Owen J. Roberts, Prof. Harold Urcy and others gave new emphasis to this apprnnch to peace. Senator Kcfauver pointed out lhat exploring the Federal Union idea would not mean that efforts to bring peace through the United Nations .the Marshall Plan or the North Atlantic Pact need be stopped. I'lan Would Fully Unite I'acl Nations Justice Roberts declared that the way out was through "a federal union of Atlantic democracies, a common currency, a common defense force, with free movement of people and goods." as the "surest, cheapest, strongest way to stop war and communism, create prosperity, extend freedom." Professor Orcy backed up this somewhat optimistic prediction to the extent that world government offered the best hope by. which catastrophe might be avoided. Professor Urey expressed the wish Unit the super-bomb would not work, or that it might be too big to deliver. "But if the bomb could be developed." and he could, he said "there would be 'no place lo hide." Apparently Irying to pull together all this somewhat confused groping, and bring it Into sharp focus. Secretary of State Dean Acheson at hLs mid-week press conference, somewhat like a minister of flic gospel, preached u sermon that, there was no easy wny to peace with the Soviet Union, on the contrary, he said, thLs road was long and difficult. The secretary declared there was no point iti -trying to bring out a 1950 model atomic control plan. Taking the old plan apart and trying to put It together again to see if It would look different would serve no \iseful purpose, he salrt. He did not close the door on future negotiations with the Russians, however. If that is to be the policy, it looks like more of the same war of nerves, for as long as you can stand it!

Coronary occlusion may come during a sound sleep or while sitting al rest in an easy chair. A severe sudden pain in the chest which may or may not extend down the arm (usually the left) to the abdomen, or up Into the neck together with shortness of breath and a feeling of raininess is enough 'to arouse suspicion. The definite diagnosis, of course, does require other lests which the doctor alone has the skill and equipment lo make. The person who even suspects at attack of coronary thrombosis however, should cease activity at once and get the opinion of a doc- lor as to whether the condition is really coronary thrombosis or not. Sudden Dea'.h If a large part of blood supply to the heart is blocked off by a clot or closure of a coronary artery, it Is Impossible for the heart t< go on beating. This Is the type o heart attack which accounts for sudden, unexpected deaths. In a great many cases, however, only a small branch of an artery is closed off and the heart, especially with proper treatment, keeps on beating and can make a good recovery How much recovery will take place depends oh how much of the heart has been damaged.
