The School Situation In a'little more tlimi « week l!)y- theville's .senior und junior hiffh schoois will close as public institutions. In t)icji- i)la,ce \ve will Imvcjirivalu, suli- scripUon schools, coiuluclod by ;i voluntary committee of citiv.cns, It is a deplorable and, in ;i scn-e, a disgraceful situation. The Iniys ;iml if iris, of this school district have every moral right to the advantages o!' high school training, irrespective pf the ubil- ityj-'of their parents to pay tuition fcefe, If they und their parents are resentful ^t the loss of this right we cannot blame lliem. On the other side of the picture, however, is the plain fact that it i« legally and financially impossible for the school board to continue the operation of tile schools. There is neither money nor authority in law to borrow it for that purpose, and the relationship^ the district's present, debts to its revenues would nnike further bor- ro^ving foolhardy even were it possible. • 'The only .thing to do, then, is to : m'akfc the best of Uie'sitimd'on as it is. Parents,. who can possibly ali'ord to pay the'fees ^should do so. They should not permit resentment at what they may regard as the mismanagement of school affairs to stand between their children and the benefits of further education. With respect to those childreii whoso parents are unable to pay. the fees there exists a 'community' obligation, ^ jg,- }o be lKu'w<'{.JJhiitt jf will be met in such a way that m> child who has been making good use of his school opportunity will be forced to. drop out. Money is scarce and all of us ihink we have been hard hit, but eveil ut that there are many residents of Blythoville to whom some child's tuition fops would lie ;i very small thing compared to its possible- importance in the life of that child. Crowed Finances News that a $'115,000 vakc-olf was paid to official circ.'cs in Peru by an American banking linn anxious to lloat a ?100,000,000 loan for the Peruvian government tells a good deal—not. only about that particular Peruvian government, but also about the banking house. The money, according to testimony before the Senate KiiiiiiKv Committee, was duly paid and the loan WHS duly floated.

NOW we can advertise if Products are nearly always put on the market be- iore they are advertised. Quite frequently, changes have to be made in an article before the public eon- erally will accept it. Color, design, flavor-those ore some of the things the public has to be consulted about. Sometimes a product won't sell at all and simply has to be discontinued. As soon as people show that they welcome an article and as soon as'all refinements and improvements have been added then you could hear the manufacturer say if'you' could be in his of lice, "Now we can advertise." When yon buy advertised goods, you may know they have gone through the experimental'stages lou may be sure that the manufacturer knows they are right and that he is willing to stake his reputation on them.
