'Streamliners' And Public btlncAt It was somewhat refreshing to notice the interest shown in the streamlined engine that pulled a southbound Fiisco passenger train through Blythc- vjllc yesterday afternoon. It naturally brought back memories of the "good old dity.s" (the "food" 'highly.;debatable) to a number of residents who can still recall when llio . daily gathering of the village idle, and even the busy ones who could drop their tasks for the moment, awaited the arrival of the "iron horse.' Of course the puffing train in those days represented the only practical' method of tiuvel in and out of the town and also was a communication line for many were the talcs, some probably/ lacking in accuracy, . which found their way along down I he railroad line in various way's with the traveling salesman as a principal dispenser of news from other towns. Now in the day of paved highways, swift motor cars and even swifter airplanes the railroad is looked upon as simply a hauler of freight despite improvements that have added immensely to travel by rail, especially for long distances. So it is worthwhile to nole that the railroad still is definitely bidding ( n r its share of passenger traffic, that improvements such as Ibe "streamliner" viewed here yesterday by many ijirii, going a long ways toward keeping tl'ie railroads in step with the times and that the public maintains a healthy interest in such advancements. Why Steet Booms A direct clew to the reason why stuel production in the United Slates'climbs toward 90 per cent is contained in a study by the American Iron and Steel Institute. It is npt HO wuch that war materials arc being made for export as the fact that among Ihe chief slrel-ex'ijortinir countries have been England, Franco, Germany and Poland. None of these is at the moment in a positio lo export, much finished steel, Other countries, unable lo get it from their usual sources of supply, have been turning to tlie United States, for Belgium, Luxembourg, Sweden, Canada and Hungary, the other chief fiteel exporters, could not supply it all. Thus steel feels a "war boom" by indirection, but not necessarily one based directly on the arms traffic!

A Good Word for Wade Tucker Wade Tucker, former sheriff of New Madrid County, who lias led a fight tar better conditions In llic cotton district of the state, recently Issued a statement showing wluU rmd been accomplished Die first yeor. He shows Hint 2 millions of dollars (lint formerly went Into excessive ginning, collon seed iiucl olhtr charges, this year went to.lho )!Co))lc w)>o make Ihe culloii crop with tlielr linnds, and gradually filtered 'through many'channels of business. We have no knowledge of all the fads nnd have no comment lo make en Mr. Tucker's activities other than one. From the beginning he declared that children hnve ; no place In the collon fields urn) demanded' conditions that would enable' the father and the grown brothers to make the croji without the a!0 of llic boys and girls of grade school age, In such n stand this newsnupcr wishes it were able to give Mr. Tucker anO others who hold the same opinion some inaterlnl )ifl|>, and "rlglil now, on the eve of (lie nnmial meeting of the Southeast Missouri Teachers Association, the friends of underprivileged children should'•nrlse to demand n conspicuous place on the program for a discussion of Mils vital subject. IMblic school teachers everywhere slug the prate of whnt Is knoivji «s the 1031 school law which provides an 8-months school cvcry- .where, which sets a (air wigc for the teachers, which sets certain standards for leather train- Ins, and provides for school transportation. Today thousands of children In. Missouri are cnr- iled lo school In \mstn, nnd In southeast Missouri [here are schools that have us many as eight buses, with very .tow schools having none. I3nt the 1031 school Inw makes no provision for (he resKHQ of the cotton children. Many schools this year again closed (i wuck:; so the children' could [lick cotton. Imagine uuic children, mostly those without shoes and sulli- clont clolhlng, turned out by the public schools to pick cotton! Such recognilion o[ the"barbarous [iiactlcc' is in a way nn approval of it. For. the public school leaders and teachers to permit this practice to be continued without vigorous protest may be construed as meaning that now that the teachers have come into belter conditions for themselves Ihcy have no lime to tiilnic of the physical welfare ol their ward.;. This much ci'cciii we can Give to Mv. Tucker without fear of liclni; •wrong. Ho lives at, Matthews and Ills children go lo the school there. There was no mention for cotton picking. No • ono ever mentioned the matter. 'If those children were forced Into Ihe fields to, pick collon 11 was after school or on Saturday. The public : school at Matthews by Its action repudiated the ; system'of closing the school so the lilt'lc children could be forced Into the cotton fields. And it ,ls reasonable lo predict that never again will I here be a cotton recess In the Matthews school, Probably other districts did the same thins. It Is certain Itmt other districts will not close next year ami gradually Ihe penal system, or the sweat-shop condition, or thu slave .system, or whatever one wishes lo call it, will disappear. Before the Anal fadcovit the public'school lenders and the teachers should go on record as being' against human 'slavery and child mistreatment In any' nnd every form, and this 'is the lime for them lo show their hands openly and vigorously. More power lo Wade Tucker in his elVorts 10 rescue children from the cotton fields. —Southeast Ml&soiiriRn (Cii|<e Glwdeou, no.) •SO THEY SAY I believe even today .thai thorc can only be real peace in Europe nnd throughout tile world If Germany and England come (o au understanding,—Adolf Hitler. t " * ' T ' Jf pence is really desired, n lasting pence, it wilt be necessary lo understand finally that the time has passed when territorial conquest* bring well-being to the conqueror.—Premier Edounrd Daladicr.

Generally, there was a friendly atmosphere around Ihc place. She liked her classes—and there was Keith Rhodes. The night Tech beat Michigan State they double dated with Barney Hughes. When Kcilh called for for at the library a couple'-of nights later, and lliey stopped in ;it the Varsity, she i-acl equaled par. for the course—three dates with Kcilh Rhodes. She knew there would be more —many more. She could lell 'by Ibe way-he looked at her when he should have town talcing notes. He would slare until she would have (o nudge him and tell him lo slop.

"First time in two years thai Webber lias scored . . ." tlie announcer said. . . . The team relumed Sunday noon iind Keith came over at 2. They wenl lo dinner downtown and although she would have liked lo ncccpl his idea of a show afterwards, she had io prepare a psychology experiment. They were back at the Alpha KM liouse by 8:30. And then white sitting in ilie car for a few moments he kissed her. No preliminaries of any kind. No indication of what was coming. One second she was silting, talking to' him. The next she was in bis arms. For a moment after he released her she was silent. Then: "I'm really surprised yon didn't try that sooner." "You're no more surprised than I urn," he said evenly, "i haven't quite the answer lo lhal one," « * * .

Youg Kovak. wh: studied civil engineering before the hisirtonU: urge seif.ed him. has splintered his \\a_y through more flaming wiilts than he can remember. Before a demonstration, he skips Iw-f meals, ealo nothing tint, or- an?e juice anil mclba toast. ' ' Wearing r, fiber tniah helmet, he fastens hlmselt to the automobile's hood. hi;, feet in UIR driver's face and his head on the radiator ornament. In this p-'sltlon he Is driven nt a last clip through the \vnll. "Thu helmet always cracks, but £0 far the only injuries I've received have been broken legs, fractured arms nnd some rather severe flesh burns," Kovak said. aloud, "'Joan Johnson, Alpha Nu- coiiner with the ultra-cool disposition, needed just three weeks lo do what no other gal has been able to do in three years—land a fourth date with Keith Rhodes.'" Elaine looked up and sav; tiie slight frown on Joan's face. "What's the matter—no like?" "No like," Joan repeated. "Not that it'll scare Keith away, but— oil, I don't know exactly what I mean." Elaine looked her straight in the eye. "You mean you'll be a marked gal more than ever, now, don't you?" Joan nodded. "Something like that. And just between you 'n' me, I don't think I got of! to such a good start around the house." Elaine merely sjared at her hands, and didn't answer. Kay Granger and Bonnie Harris chorused a sarcastic "congratulations" at lier just before dinnev and she thanked them with a pseudo gvaciousness that was hard to miss. Carol Reid overheard and knew that something would have to be done.' Given a chance, the faint antagonism shown toward Joan by some o£ (he girls was liable to flare into open resentment. It was : warmer than'usual that night. Joan, deeply involved in some notes, glanced at the clock. It was. 10:45. She tossed an eraser at Marianne sprawled on the bed reading. "Hey, runt," she called, "howza- bottt calling up for some hamburgers and cokes. We can just about heat the '11 o'clock no- delivery deadline." "Best idea you've had tonight," was the answer, and she pattered down lo call the corner hainburg emporium. Joan dashed to answer the doorbell when iti-ong 15 minutes later. It was the delivery boy and coming up the steps behind him were three girls returning irom the library. "Hi, kids," greeted Joan as. she gave the boy some change. "Gel much done?" "Enough," Bonnie, Harris replied laconically, and then glancing at her wrist watch: "Rules just don't mean a thing lo some people," she remarked significantly. "Meaning what?" Joan's tone was sharp. ' . "I suppose you've never heard of (he 11 o'clock no-delivevy rule." "It's just 11,". Joan flfireaV./ . . "Tafce.'anolher. look,",Bonnie' returned tartly! "We lilt the library al 11. It's 20 after now." .,' "But ouv clock—" Joan began, and then stopped. It wouldn't do much good to argue. She fled upstairs, slammed the door and looked at Ihe clock. It was still 10:45. The clock had stopped. • ' ' ' "Take it easy," said Marianne. "What's up?" Joan told her and Marianne slammed down her book. i "They'll never believe us," said Marianne. "You're telling me." » * « CHE bumped into Carol Held next u morning !n front o£ Barnard Hall ut 10. "Just the person I wanted to see," Carol said. "What'vc you got this hour?" "Nothing, why?" "Well, I've an English class that's just dying to be cut. Let's sit down," She led Joan to a bench under a tree. "Marianne told me what happened last night, Joan, And I believe it." "Thanks—but they don'l." "No, they don'l. And that's why I want lo talk to you." "Go ahead—straight Iron) the shoulder." "Joan, I lliink I'm a pretty good judge of people, and regardless of the ideas shared by some of our dear sisters, I think you're aces. You're new—different, but I guess you're loo rich for some ot the dear sisters' blood—and I don'l mean financially." "Think I ought to move out?" Carol's eyes flashed. "Not on your life you won't. We need someone like you around the place. We've got the finest bunch o£ girls on campus, and I'm not being prejudiced—but some of-them just haven't got around fo accepting you as one of them. Kay Granger, Bonnie Harris, and a couple of others for instance. "So far," she continued frankly, "you haven't even begun to click; • with them." And then striking oft on a ne\v • tangent;. "One'of Ihe things they resent most is that they know so little about you. Oh, sure—we know you're originally from Ar- i kansas, that you went to -Northwestern for two years, and your home is out east somewhere. We never pry, so it you don't tell us other things we ncver-know." "If I told you any more about myself it would only make matters worse," said Joan in a strained voice.
