Variation on an Old Theme When the Air Force colonel's dog gets the 911 plane rk|e, and the Air Force colonel £ds in the, congr.essiojiaj dyx house, that—as you. may have noticed from' reading the. paper s—is iiews. •A Forgotten Ally JUrroducUon IB thto •»ftmn OUNCO France is back in the war.'Her sol- •diers are fighting with ours find Brit- . ain's, and there will be many 1 more ,of them as soon as they can be equipped. ''.Her farms and towns again have been scorched by battle. Her ports'and.rail- roads and highways form the chief.sup'-; . ply lines for the western attack on Germany. France is willing to do .her part now, and to carry her full share of policing Germany 'after the war. But France was not included in the Big Three conference which mapped the course of the defeat, surrender and immediate disposition of the dangerous neighbor who has caused her to snffer so often and so bitterly. y All these things and more General do Gaulle pointed out in'-ah .address which though perhaps not a, model of diplomacy, carried a full measure of logic and justice. It is difficult to •determine why the French leader was not invited to meet with the American, British and Russian heads of government.-All three of t them have recognized the provisional government of which he is chief. • . Certainly the Big Three could nW have thought that the future of Germany did not concern France. By the evidence of history and geography, France is more anxiously concerned than any of the three great powers at war with Hitler's Third Reich. ' Naturally, then, the head of the French state could not do less thai) announce that., he ,\vmild not be bound by decisions and agreements; in which he was not consulted. And naturally ,he felt it time to advise the world of his country's wishes in the formation of a postwar Europe in which she hopes to regain her former standing. ' ' France will unquestionably have to go along with the Big Threels general decisions, whatever they are. And-General de Gaulle gave no indication that he had lost interest in eventually taking his country into security organization outlined at Dumbarton Oaks. Nevertheless, the snub that he has received places another obstacle in the path of international unity. It has v J ^9^LthjeiVgfnei'al!,tq(;pjps:tpp)je "uiitij - VJ^jpjJI^^ action and' all our territories" a wholehearted cooperation;. in the effort toward world peace. It has probably ag- giavated a distrustful feeling which may take the shape of a set of separate backstop alliances between .France ' and her neighbors. And the snub can scarcely fail to " suggest to General de Gaulle and his countrymen that the Big Three already consider Frgnce a minor power and in; tend to keep her so. The effect, of that •—- inference promises to complicate fur. " ther the difficult problems of world agreement. School.Problem Calls for Compromise A statement that, the school people nnd the Arkansas Public Expenditure Cpuncll are not far apart oil their plans for reorganizing the i, school system Is good news.. . . Briefly, the school people wouty adopt a permissive method, as their plan was announced. ' Tlicy \vould : set up .'county' boards to -work out blue prints'for organizing .larger districts, leaving it uu to the people to Initiate n vote on the proposal In '• each suggested' district. The Public Expenditure Council would step more briskly Into:the task. It would have the legislature -shape .tli.e. slate Into, 84 districts, generally .along county .lilies, but not Including a number of present • city, districts. Then in district the people would decide through a 'hoard how much they, would coasolldate—how many of the small schools it would be best to retain. , Each plan'looks to increased state aid, chiefly for laigcr .teacher salaries: Since ,t|ie. sfhpol .people's plan admits the need'of larger, districts, and since the Council'A plan wouldn't decree on enforced consolidation, but leaves the way open to keep many schools as they arei, It, should be possible to bring the two plans together on common ground. All legislation Is compromise. No Interest can get all It wants in any important change. There must be a spirit of give-and-take if any progress is to be made. A Dutch historian has pointed out that the greatness of this nation is largely in Its facility for compromise. He says that only the possession of that "divine gift" by the'authors of our government kept It from being wrecked at the start. It is plain beyond argument that, more money will not alone solve our school problem. We've tried that. State aid has shot up by about five million dollars In five years—till Arkansas is now one of the foremost slates In the percentage of Its slate revenues going for education. Yet we've made little headway toward an adequate school system as a whole. The present system has too much lost motion In it. It lacks the efficiency It should liave. It • needs a general overhauling and invigorating. Arkansas is not n rich state with money to waste on anything. ' ' The situation \vas never so favorable to corrective action as It is now. It would bs tragic If the opportunity should pass with nothing constructive done. A compromise is needed if we are to make some real progress. . ' —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT. m *COPR.*mS BY FlEA SERVlCE~lNO.

The child, she was fourteen, had been taken with a violent cough and had been confined to her bed for four weeks. She had begun to spit blosd. Mamma was in a panic. The girl was attended by one Alalcz who ordered an immediate blood-letting, and that was done, not once but twice. But it did not help any. Nothing that was clone did any good. After a while the coughing was over and the young girl was quiet. Her body was still, a smile on her checks. But Emilja was not there; she was gone, no longer of this earth.
