Futrelljor Governor Those vendors of the Courier News who know J.-M, Futreir cither personally or by rcpntnliiin will welcome his announcement as a candidate fur governoi; of Arkansas as the best piece of political news thi.s state has hitd in u v number of years. Judge Futrell ha--: the ability which is nccdt-.tMii the'governor's office, and the character and courage to resist the influences that have made other good men ]>oor'governors. There are. too many men .in the race for governor to make liny thing ' certain. Some of them arc good men who would do honor to any pavilion of pu|l>\ir. services. But Chancellor Kill roll stands out so fur above thu field us to make hi..; Humiliation ami election all but sure. Me has earned and will receive the overwhelming .support of northeast Arkansas, and is well enough known over the rest of tho slate to leave very little doubt as .to the result.

During thu bright years of prosperity it used to lie siiid that the American people would show iin.siiispeeled depths s>f radicalism if ever their industrial maehine stopped working smoothly; but flic lust couple of years have shown how completely false that assumption was. Kadicalism • today seems to have little more appeal than it had three years ago. The '.soil of this country does not seem to be j;ootl soil for the growth of Communism.

The Detroit judifc whu senleneed the mun'erer decried (he fad tliat his .-tale does not have capital punishment. The only objection to conscience us an avenger.of wrong is the fact that who commit the jrnweat sins have been hardened, u-ually, by such a scries of encroachments that their siifl'uring- is less keen than those whose errors are few. it is only at the bc- ginniiiK of wrong-doing, it would seem, Unit conscience makes a coward of a man. Certainly Lily had nothing to warn him of the moral wrdrigncss of lib- act. Perhaps, during the sentence that he iiittsl serve, his conscience will awaken ajrain.

When It Is considered that there would have been 60,000 cases of the disease wllh 6000 deaths in Chicago alone during 1931 if the rales of 1890 still prevailed, Ihe world will have, some idea of what a tremendous accomplishment this has been for science and for public health.
