America Is Si'en Through' N<>w E')cs "When I die, I will tell Ibfi dead about il." ', '" H was an incredulous, liiippy old lady > speaking—and she was talking aljout -America. She had liecn brought from 'her village home in Romania by lier son, who had lived in the United States fov some time. It was her first visit to this country. The things she saw and marveled at when she readied Ihis shore were the (hings' most citizens see every day. They were little things, most of them —but all integral parts of a land that is slil! comparatively rich and free. On a drive through (he country,, she wits struck by the dairy herds 011 American farms—the unbelievable she of the full 1 udders. Cows are not so productive in her homeland. To this little lady, America is the ' most remarkable place in the world. She couldn't (jet over the fact that .she could travel for several hundreds of miles, across slate lines, without once showing a passport. How oflon do the citizen.!* of this .country stop to think what that means? Americans > travel thousands of miles across the continent without ouco being stopped for identification, unless they run afoul (he traffic'.regulations 'somewhere. Americans don't stop often enough to count their blessings.-. They accept all the details of their lives as part of their hc-litage. Yes, they are. j'wrt of ' American heritage—automobiles, telephones, electric lights, radio, healthy cattle, freSdom of interstate passage, opportunity to become successful. They belong to America, and the citizens here have become used to them. They have become so much u part of the general acceptance of things that no one ever stops to reflect ov x cr Ihcm. "What about the houses? — there aren't any fences around them. And where do the watchdogs stay?" Leaving houses unprotected while their owners slept .seemed to her like oveiv reliance on the virtue of humanity. She is learning now that houses don't- get robbed in this country—most houses don't, at least. • / It might do a lot of people some good to shut their eyes for a moment and open them again—on a new America, a country they never saw before because they were loo close to it. Count your blessings, the little ones as well as (he big ones-. They belong to American life today, but they didn't always. They had to be fought for. .The little old lady from Romania knows all about these blessings, and perhaps she will teach a few'veteran Americans a thing or two before she "tells the dead about it." Trdcding Sabotage of of ' No one will blame the citizens this country for being suspicious possible sabotage while a Avar is in progress abroad. JSyevy rumor of destruction by. enemies of the government should be checked by the proper authorities. Such vigilance can, however, be carried too far, It can breed, within the breasts of factory workers, groundless suspicions concerning their i'cllow-em- ployes. .Unchecked, such an attitude on the part of American workers can cause untold distress to perfectly good citizens whose only fault may be that they have a German name or a slight foreign accent. So far, there have been numerous rumors of sabotage; there has been almost no evidence. If foreign agents in this country we're as abundant as the rei'orLs would imlica'te, American factories already would lie reduced to shambles.

The Best Conditions for ihe Tenant When about one-third of Arknnsns's tenant runners move every year there arc bound to bo .losses arising trom Hie same general causes lliai make business and Industry seek to keep innor turnover down, As a remedy far the present turnover of 33 1-3 per cent a ycnv on Arkiui- sns's tcnnril-opcrntcd'farms, Assistant Kxlension Director H. E. Thompson suggests long or ovi'n permanent tenure for tenants, (jiving .them an Incentive'to conserve niwi build >np Hie soil nnti improve Die buildings and other fixtures. " In most discussions of this problem of sldtil- llzlng rural lite in Arkansas and the South generally, the cmphnsis lins laid on making a farm-owner of the tenant. Sometimes it- seems almost lo be nssunicd-.lhni placing tenants on land of their own Is the only remedy—that tenancy ns contrasted with land ownership ip in and of Itr.clf an evil. Yet no such ntUtude is taken with respect to oilier callings by whlcli men earn their bl'ciul. Most people work m other peoples' stores or offices.or factories, and ol nil the families in the United States more than half live In houses owned by oilier people. Undesirable tenancy conditions are not Inevitably produced by tenancy «s such. It. seems that progress toward betterment ot human and social anil economic conditions might follow two lines. Tenants who appeared to have It In them to succeed as farm-owners mlght--bc helped lo acquire land of their own, wluls otherwise desirable tenants, not so well" fitted lor succf.ssfiil ownership, or perhaps not desiring Its responsibility, might .bo assumed of long-term or permanent tenure to the mutual advantage of themselves mid their landlords. A tenant^ who knew that if he made-good he could work his holding lop the rest of Ills life would be an owner 'In everything but nninr. As a matter ol fnct such stable tenant-landlord relationships already 'are numerous In Arkansas. Many »'. landowner keeps Hie smnc tenants year nlicr year because endi knows lie can depend on tlic other and both sides nre satisfied. —Arkansas Uaroltc. V _^ _ COPR, mgBYHEHSEfwCC.IKC. T. M. REG.

"Oh, he'll get over il," Joan prophesied. "Anything happen ol real importance?" "So Keith isn't of real importance—unquote. Joan heaved a pillow at her. "That isn't what I mean, squirt, and you know it. C'mon, give out with some choice gossir* Or even plain news if that's all you have at the moment." ' Marianne grinned. "Well, then, reading from left to right respectively, I flunked my economics mid-term; Eddie Larson finally planted his pin on Bonnie Harris mid Dan Webber is definitely out of the Duquesne game Saturday.
