Why Welt Pay ff The Inisiiicss men and citizens of - Blj'theville generally tire getting inoi'c ilian a little bit tired of being asked {b, dig into their pockets, no "matter how \vovlhy tlie cause. But we venture the guess Ihnl when Max .Meyers aiid his assistants call on them next week to enroll them as members of the American Red ^ Cross they will come through. * r lilylheville and Mississippi county as a community and each of us as individuals can't turn tlown the Reel Cross, and here is the reason: Some years ago—back at the time of'the big flood of 1027, to be exnct, and again when drouth struck in 1030 —\vc desperately needed help. The Red Cross gave it—at h cost, for the two disasters, of very nearly $250,000 fov its work in the Cliicknsawba district of this county alone. We could meet.our roll call quoin ' for ^100 years aim still not pay that money back. The lied Cross doesn't expect us to pay it back. It spends its money to meet human needs, not to create obligations. We don't owe the Red Cross a ccnl. But we have an obligation to o\ir own self-respect. And we'll meet it Saturday and* next week by investing a dollar or two or more, as our individual means justify, in the organization which stands ready lo extend help wherever disaster strikes throughout I this great land, just as it extended help hero not so long ago.' ' *"'; Jean Valjeaiis* If Solomon were living today, ho • \\6uld probably find himself appointed tole arbiter of "modern Jean Valjean' 1 cases, while those of mixed babies' woihd be given to lesser legal hghls. For tho Valjean pioblems scorn, to be among the knottiest with which the forces of justice have to grapple nowadays. Their pattern is similar. Imprisoned for a minor offense, a man escapes jail, builds an honest career, and >,lhen is found out. The dilemma that arises is formidable.. If the man is returned to jail, the disgrace may blight his life. If not, his debt to society will remain unpaid, and a bad precedent is created. The solution is not made easier by pleas of the man's friends and business acquaintances. To the authoiitics who have to handle such cases, llio thought nVust corno thai Solomon had something of a sinecure. lj(. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Campaign Expenses John D. M. Hamilton, head of the Republican national committee, !htfs the headache of trying to collect money to pay off the parly's campaign deficit; and his labors in this thankless task may Well lead the clllfcenry to ask whether the high campaign expenditures of recent years arc really ncccs- su'ry. Both parlies spent vast sums Him year, and it looks very much as If the election Would have conic out just about as it did if they had limited Ihcniselves to a tenth of their actual spcndings. The money they poured out nulst have been largely wasted; the Democrats didn't need it, an;d the Republicans weren't helped by it—not so yon could notice. It nilght be a line thing if tho objecl lesson would lead to much more frugality In political campaigns in the future. Doctored News Discerning readers know that much of the news from abroad is adulterated by censorship and propaganda^ Of course, it would be a real deprivation . if they stopped icccivilig such' iieWs. Doclorcd news is better than no information at all, once you learn to read beLwccli the lines. This IK the subslance of a.speech by Henry Hablitl, noted iuitlior, in New York City recently. And it explains why till newspaper . renders should carefully and analytically study news from abroad. >. If their emotions are •''stirred one way or another by dispatches from the other side, whether it be Rome, Moscow, or Madrid, they should first consider whether the news is unduly favorable to Spanish loyalists or rebels, Italy's Fascists or Russia's Cotninun- isfs. If so, they should accept it with u heaping tablespoon of salt. BY ROBERT DICKSON 4 © 1936 NEA Service, Inc. "I'm sick and lircd of having to come after yoii. I told yon not to sit thrmigh that picture more than live limes." Iks CURIOUS WORLD ,.\T\vo Fundamentals In the-t „.-; Tenant Problem To our way Of thinking the mutter of easy credit, or e\cn outright donation will not solve the problem of Innil ownership in this state. H will have to go deeper than that. One thing 'some, of -us 'have overlooked Is the mailer of farm Income, but even farm income will nol make for the complete solution. The first thing Is better educational facilities In the highly 'tenanted 'area's ,'of Ihe slnte. The ncxl is more health' protection and increased fncli- ilie's for the prevention of common diseases in the country. You can't expect an ignoramus who knows nothing lo have 1 , very much desire to operate and.own a farm. -Yon can't expect n farm family wmckert with ninlaria, chills ami 111 health (o have very much enthusiasm for fighting for u home in the country. : The slate can'-.start now, without wailing for congress toward solution of those fundamentals. The- matter of credit, fiirm income and land acquirement can come along later and will have a greater chance to succeed if the items of education and health arc taken care of properly. —Arkansas Farmer. ...

Ill* name I* NOW CO ON WITH Till; STORY CHAPTER IX A/TAnCIA'S plane had le£t Chicago in weather which was only - a lilllc belter than bad enough lo suspend service. There had been indications of improvc- menl, .sufficient lo permit' the plane's departure.' bul, several on the way, Ihc pilot encountered conditions which the airport had not expected. Marcia, gazing through her window into the haze at mental images which the poor visibility of the day could not erase, realized that the plane was about to land. She had not acquainted hersell wltli the schedule ol the Highland thought lhat they were making a regular stop, until she noliccd thai the landing was to be attempted not at ah airport hilt in a Held snow-covered ami isolated. Considering the snow, the pilot hiade an excellent lamliny; it \vas not his fault thnt a drifl-covcrec fciice brought his plane lo an abrupt stop, jerking the craft to OIIL side so violently thai a dipped and one propeller \va? badly damaged, and the passcn- RCIS \\eie rudely jolted. Instantly there was a chorus questions The pilot and co-pilo cmeigcd front the control room and patiently nnd al length ex phined the decreasing visibility and the silent radio. Then (lie two men : opened r door and disappeared in the mist TINDER the ministrations ofilh ^ stc .\ardcss, the cabin took Or something of the atmosphere 61 picliic. Tho coffee and sandwichc which would have been served •.within-half.,an,houi at any event '\X-crc parsed a'round, and people began to speak to then neighbors of their escape from a serious accident, and of possible continuing transportation. In the midst o( these festivities Bruce McDougal!, having finished with his refreshments, turned in his seat and glanced at the passengers behind him! He saw Marcia> and His face broke into the same broad yet strangely embarrassed grin -which she had seen earlier al the hotel in Chicago. He was patently at a Joss for vords, but the' plane door was ipqned at the moment and the wo pilots climbed in. There's a farmhouse not far Jack where you can all be com- "orlable for a while," the chief innounced. "I hope you won't be lelaycd long. I'll make immediate efforts lo have you on your way, but in the meantime there's a varm house for you to wail in- plenty o£ room for all." Tho farmhouse, the passengers found after trudging through the deep snow for a weary distance, was the spacious home of an elderly couple who, far from being embarrassed by this invasion, welcomed it as a pleasant interlude. Wore food was forthcoming for he crowd of guests, and a cheerful log fire. All, indeed, thai they could desire, with the exception that the storm which had forced them down had also put the telephone line out of commission and blocked the roads! t 3 "yilE morning papers on the breakfast tables o£ Bobbs Heck carried (he news that a plane from Chicago was hours overdue and unreiiortcd. 'Awkins, the Canfield butler, read tlie news story over '''• coffee, with no greal interest til he glanced down Ihc appended list of passengers, as announced by the air line. "Miss Mavcia Canfield of Bobbs Neck." 'Awkins was not lie discussed alarmist, himself the mailer of sending a wire to Mr. Can Held in Florida, and decided against it. For one thing, Mr. Canfield would probably read the same news in a Florida paper; if ho did not, 'Awkins disliked the idea of worrying him pending receipt of 'more definite word. ITcl-ii Waddell's anxiety, although shared by hiany in the village, was especially acute. She felt that she had sent her fricrtd OP. the trip that had ended, for all anyone knew to the contrary, in disaster. '.••='..There was n rehearsal that nighl for -"Half-Acre" in Eden," and Helen mechanically prepared to attend, disliking to 4p EO at-Ihc moment of possible-*trb.gcdy,-:but knowing she. could.; accomplish nc'thiiij! by remaining away. It was a futile rehearsal. Although someone was found to read the lines of the absent Marcia, no one could put much spirit Into the enterprise. Tlie cast went through its routine half-heartedly, and Mrs. Henderson, Ihe director, dismissed the members earlier than usual when she saw lhat Ihc evening was being wasled. Bul Ihis did nol disperse the players. Hoping, in the face of mcerlainty, for Ihe hesl, and fearing tho worst, they remained in the auditorium and discussed tho possibililies. Dorothy Osborn had restrained herself during the entire day while Ihc village buzzed with the news, bul she could not hold back any longer. "As a matter of fact," she said, "t saw Marcia leaving. H was at the station day before yesterday, when she was catching a train to the cily. "I hale lo say it, if anything has happened to her—although I don't see any reason for not telling liic Uulh—but she told me distinctly she was going lo Scheneclady. N Now, why should she lie abouljil^ I've been Ihinking it over, and I'ft^ willing lo bet there's more lo it than meets the eye. My guess is lhat it had something to do with Frank Kencirick!" "MOW, Ihis is cosy," I3ruce Mc, DougaH said to Marcia on Iheir second nighl !n the farmhouse. "Everybody else trots off to bed on Ihc sofas aid cols and !;| shakedowns provided by our charming hosts, bul you're sporting enough lo stay up and share this delightful fire with me. I don't feel like sleeping anyway, and when I think of Hitting here alone—" They sat for a while in silence, enjoying (he sacrifice of great logs in the fireplace. Then Marcia declared it bedtime. /' Lying on her col, courting sleep, she thought again of the confusion of the last Iwo clays. She Ihoughl of the curtain rung down on an episode in her life—rung down by the author of the episode, Frank Kencirick. She thought, lor no identifiable reason, of the young couple in love whom she had glimpsed in a Chicago taxicab, and again she compared Kendrick and herself with lhat pair of lovers; and she Ihoughl Ihen, so haphazard are flic mental piclures which come while one is falling asleep, of Bn McDougall, and .she was dcco slulnber before a'fi y*--' f u i-1 \\ thoughts rhadc-processiorr through her mind. l : •-' r;1 (Ti Be Continued) many machines nnd IPW lioi you can lie most certain thai is not the. man., you want to ex amlnc yoiir eyes ov, those of your children." oo 1 ^- fo c» ninth \\ill co-op t l\-> the umj ific.ii Billons r OUT OUR WAY By Williams - I DOW'T IT'S.
