Gel Down to Cases The ilopu Star, comtncntiiit,' on • Howard Rood's oiieniiiK address al Pine HliiiT, rcnwrks thai his talk was "spec-ilk in criticism of Uie Fiilrcll ad- niinislration—but where it touched upon his own formula for mctliiiK the problems confronting the stale Ills speech was evasive and full of generalities." Noting Mi'. Heed's declaration that he will "support the Arkansas schools from kindergarten to university in any equitable movement for their relief, except 11 sales tax and a direct tax on properly," Ihe Slur wants to know where, then, he proposes lo lind the . revenue lo help them. 1 H is a reasonable question. Governor Futrell advocate's stale support of a free public school system through the eighth urmta. Mr. Heed goes him four grades beilei 1 . lie would have tlie Vtale provide J'tfi- -twelve grades. Bui neither oi' them is specific, on the rather important point of where the money is to come Ironi. 'ftiey will lull you that is a matter for the legislature to decide. But to the people who must pay the bills the soundness of either proposal depends pretty largely upon the possibility of raising the necessary money equitably and without imposing too severe lax burdens of any kind. No one can quarrel with the declaration that eight grades of free schooling Js the right of every Arkansas chiffff oWlrSl ft would Undesirable to make 12 grades available lo every child. But you don't get anywhere until you provide the money with v.'hich to do it. The governor and his opponent should both give attention to the practical details of their school proposals, so that when election day comes around the people will know what they are voting for. Here in Mississippi county, for example, we will want lo know whether we arc voting for better educational opportunities for our own children, or merely for the transfer lo other parts of the slate of tax . money that we pay and that is badly needed by our own schools. We have learned from sad experience that so- called "state aid" is a doubtful blessing. We have been sending dollars to Little Rock, and getting pennies in return, for a long time, and we don't want anv OUT OUR WA\ more of that. We know that the educational situation in Arkansas is in a pitiful state, but we are justly afraid of any proposal which will Uke away any of our already badly crippled ability to maintain our own schools on a decent plane in exchange for nebulous promises of state help. The Price, of Gas The Arkansas Gazelle, commenting on the attempts of a number of Tennessee and Arkansas towns to force down gasoline prices by establishing municipal. strvicc stations, points out that 7'Xi cents of the price per gallon is federal and slate lax, which doe.i not seem lo make a 21 y± cents per gallon retail price excessive when costs of crude oil production, relining, transportation and distribution, with reasonable profits to all concerned, are taken into consideration. That would be convincing were it not for the fact that in certain communities the gasoline companies themselves have seen fit to maintain much lower prices. We are not at all certain that Ul'/j cents a gallon is in il- stlf an unreasonably high price for gasoline in Blythcville, but we know there is something wrong when the same companies sell the same gasoline for 1 £>'/•; cents a gallon al points in this state only an hour's drive away.

Some persons are much more likely to have freckles than are others, apparently because they have a special sensitivity to sunlight. '1i\ many cases the freckles last throughout life, but in otliers they come and no with the seasons, fading with the onset of winter and reappearing again with Ihc fiim- llglil In tbe spring. As an indication of the fact that freckling represents a special tyi>e of sensitivity, it is well known tiiat some persons exposed to the sun will Invariably develop freckles, whereas others will merely form a deep coat of tan. • « * II i:; possible for persons working In tlic Ihcaler am! those to wrom freckling Is an liicitiiibrnncc. lo have the freckles removed by p>cp- aralions which peel the skin.
