If the value pf advertising in the fair catalogue is a debatable mallei 1 the valua of tlte fair is not. .Ami the proceeds of the sale of space in the -fair catalogue are file loiur.hition of •the fair. A good many county and regional fairs in recent years have degenerated into a form of commercialized entertainment about on a par with a street carnival. They have sacrificed their constructive, educational programs in it struggle to make receipts . balance expenditures. The Mississippi county fair lias been : and should continue to be primarily : an exposition of this county's agricul- • tnral progress. It is helping to advance a program that will mean year around and year in and year out prosperity for Mississippi county farms and, indirectly, Mississippi county bus- .iness. The cumulative results of this program will pay liberal dividends to all who help nut it across. And this does not take into consideration the immediate returns which are obtained by an institution that attracts thousands . of. people to .Blyllicvillc. • Sale of space in the 1031 Mississippi county fair "catalogue will start in a day or two. All Blytheville business concerns can benefit themselves by giving it the support it deserves. A Little Bit Mixed It Js -something of a commentary on Uio kind'of civilization in which we live, that a big New York musical 'revue recently put into effect n minimum wage of §100 a week for its chorus girls. Not, of course, that anybody ought to begrudge a chorus girl a nice fat pay envelope. If she can get her hundred a week, more power to her. She's lucky. Rut, while this was happening, every city was lilled with skilled workers at .)' COURIER NEWS useful Ir.idoK who could not got jobs at all. Every industry was full of trained men who had had lo take sharp reductions in their pay. Every town, from the largest to the smallest had plenty of men of who were glad to get half-time or (iiiartcr-time work. It is a queer country, isn't it, that od'er.s $100 a week to chorus girls while it can't pay some four or live million useful workers anything at nil? , Free Speech For Mayors The city council of Atlanta, Ga., by a vote of 23 to 9, killed a resolution censuring Mayor James L, Key for remarks condemning Americsm prohibition uttered while he v.-as in France with other American mayors attending (he French Colonial lOxposition. The vote doesn't necessarily show that Atlanta coimcilmcn agree with their mayor about prohibition, but it docs reveal a commendable readiness on their, part to acknowledge the right of a mayor or anyone cl.-:u to speak his own mind." In Italy it is a crime to take issue with any governmental policy upon which Mussolini and his fascist regime have placed the seal of official approval May the time never come in America when a man need be afraid to say what he thinks about prohibition or any other public issue. Vindicating (he Weather Man Poking fun at the official weather forecaster seems lo be one of the freeborn American's inalienable rights. When father, unfolding the evening paper, remarks that "I .see tile weather man says it's going lo rain tomorrow," the rest of the, family is muru or less expected to reply that the weather man is seldom known to be right and, that his forecasts are little Letter than inspired guesses. Now, however, the weather man gets his vindication. The United States Weather Bureau, having checked up on its accounts for the past year, reveals that its forecasts were 89.G per cent accurate throughout the year. ' In other words, when the weather man says it is going to rain tomorrow, the chances are nine to one that lie is right. Most of us, probably, will go on doubting his word—but we might KS well realize that the odds are all in'his favor. . v {-.• SIDE GLANCES By George Clark '9Ji ai ma SERVICE. t.HT.orr. _M _MONDAV, JUNE 22^ 1931 "Gee, but I'm sick of that music!

For standards ol 1 living are not based merely on wealth. They are based rather on the way people use wealth. The reason why American standards are considered highest in the world is because the great,majority of Americans have at their command all the things necessary to a civilized and cultured mode of living. Any housewife in America, even of most moderate means, can draw upon the resources of ail the world for her own private use! You may study and enjoy outright at very small expense, music... drama ... art in all its forms, You You may review the smartest styles each day as they appear in the pages of newspapers. You may select household furnishings, modern conveniences, heat- units, refrigeration, food in luxurious and endless variety, cosmetics, dress-goods, automobiles, anything in fact thatos commonly looked upon as part of the American scene. . .you may select these things leisurely and conveniently by merely studying the advertisements as they appear each day!
