Meditations For oui of the hearts proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false wilnws, blasphemies.—Matthew 15:19. * * * Nothing can work me damage except myself.

Recently, steps have been taken to try to train more particular control over prisoner furloughs and paroles. We hope it will be effective. In connection with this, the Craighead jury reported that "we would like to commend the Prosecuting Attorney's office for its forthright policy In opposing undeserved furloughs, paroles and pardons." Of course, no one kno^ys better than Prosecutor Charley Parllow the deficiencies and menace of an unsound parole system. Africa Is for Sissies A professor w h o has been doing fome research on hot weather down around the equator in Africa says it's a good idea to bustle around during the heat of the day and don't take any noonday naps. Well, that's all right for a man to say who's silling comfortably astride the equator. But what about us here? It's all right to talk about bustling about in the shady jungle of Africa, bill what about making a one-man safari down Jlain Street al high noon with the sidewalk frying your feet and the buildings on all sides of you throwing it off like a lousier? As for taking noonday naps, not a chance. How could anybody ever go to sleep in heat like this? Move over, Africa, here we come. Views of Others Fulbright Demonstration Should Be Pace-Setter It wag refreshing Indeed to note that the Arkansas delegation at the Democratic convention followed to the letter the request of Sen. Fnlbrighl that any nomination demonstration for him b« » quiet one. And by all political convention standards, the two-minutes of applause that followed the senator's nomination was a quiet one. But it was a demonstration we would like to see used ns a pattern for future conventions. There is little more farcical, more hypocritical, and more pointless than the standard convention demonstration. These outbreaks are compounded of nothing but noise and actually^ represent no particular support other than that which the campaign budget can afford. Elections are serious business. Conventions should be equally serious business and conducted as such. The ballyhoo, the arm-waving and the. ludicrous "man who" style of nomination speeches should be minimized and the "spontaneous" demonstrations done away with completely. Sen. Fulbright added a grain of intelligence to the vast granary of convention nonsense when he asked that no demonstration, in the convention sense, be held on his nomination. While the selection of a vice presidential candidate may he past history when this reaches print, we feel that the Democrats will have passed up an outstanding opportunity lo strengthen their ticket if they do not pick Sen. Fulbright for the second-place position. Profit and the Consumer A great many people obviously hold to the misconception thai business' profits are a cause of high prices. Yet the truth Is that over the last decade, net profits have accounted for only about 5 cents of every dollar of sales. In 1051, the average was hut 4 cents. Moreover in some very Important types of !nis-, profits flre even smlaler lhan this. Retailing is one of them. H Is an ironical fact tllat thi retailer has been the target of much consumer resentment. On occasion, so-called consumer strikes, complete with picket line.s and flaunting banners, have been directed against the hapless retailer. Yet store protils for the first nine months of 1951 amounted to less than 2 cents out of the sales dollar. Pood chains hnve frequently reported profits of only a trifle more than a cent on the sales dollar. This points up Ihe fact that profits definitely have not been a cause of inflation. In truth many businesses, including retailing, have been victims of Inflation just ns have the consumers Prices huva gone up, yes, by comparison with pre war Jevels—but such Inescapable .-jexrHmsc-s us labor, materials, taxes and so on hnvp'o.ften icne up proportionately more. And the dollar the retailer does earn as profit buys him'much lens than R used to—Just like everyone else.'a dollar. The profit motive keeps this country going. It makes for abundance and high living standards. It costs us mighty little, when measured by the vast benefits It creates. —Johnson City ITenn.)

The report said that crime in Craighead County "is apparently at its lowest ebb in history. We feel this is due to the efficient and capable manner in which our public officials have fairly and impartially handled the enforcement of the criminal l;i\v." Then the report goes on to score the practice of "releasing criminals before the expiration of their terms." Of course, the report upholds the need of a sound parole system.
