C. Tongue of the federal fiirm board that the board will not undertake to assure n profitable price for Hie 1!)30 colton crop unless the farmers of the Soutli keep .their acreage within rcusoniibla limits ; is a timely one. The farm board IH not going to guarantee farm profits, and 'that is something that ought to be generally understood from the start. :;. Mn league might have added that The best place for reducing tlio cotton •.acreage is in the hill areas where yields are such as to preclude any profit from .jthe crop at any price that seems even remotely possible. From the standpoint "of. acre yields, attained and attainable, Mississippi county is the logical place to grow cotton. But even here it is \vorth paying attention to what Mr. Teague has to say. "If Southern farmers," he says, "should raise their own food and fond arid in addition raise so far as the cli- Imate and .soil will let them, the food ; that Southern city people eat, there would be small danger of anj-i cutlon ;surplus or of an unprofitable crop." He might, have added that such a program would reduce the cost of muk- • ing the cotton crop, would permit a -.isystem of crop rotation that would .make easier the task of maintaining t soil fertility, and would ultimately give' the Southern, farmer a measure-of independence that he has nevor enjoyed in the past. When we make ourselves self-sustaining, with the cotton crop a genuine cash profit crop, our problems wili.be solved. A Community Responsibility Biytheville is fortunate in the sense of civic responsibility possessed-by her citizens. The editor of the Courier News, in his^somewhat limited experience, has never known a community where, in proportion to the available wealth, any worthy cause could be so .certain of financial support as here. When it is necessary to raise money to meet : some community need the money is almost invariably forthcoming. The offer of Mr. T. J.

Hut Hlyllie- villc cannot afford to have her .schools dependent, evi-n in ;i sinnll measure, upon the generosity of reliiliv;-!)' n small part of her citizenship. Schools are a community responsibility anil il i.s only through full assumption of lhal responsibility Hut tlic situation will be fully and properly met. The Courier News ,ippn>ciuk>.s Dial tax burdens liav; been heavy. It i.s a rare community, the length and breadth of this land, whose residents have not foiling cause to 'complain of Imnlciisome taxation. But the solution, here or anywhere else, ilo. ; s not lie in refusing to meet such community obligations as the education of our children. \Vc ask every lilytheville property owner to answer in his own mind: Which will hurt my- inlcrcsts the more, an extra dollar or two of taxation on the thousand of assessed valuation, or acknowledgement to every present or prosi>ective resident of this city of its inability or unwillingness to maintain a free high school?

"Oh, no," said Shortrldgc, "everybody wants to go to California, and Ihe desire of Ilawkcyes to locate In the Golden state has almost depopulated Iowa." 'iownns are coining back to Iowa now," Brcoklmrt shot back, "because they can't get enough to live on nny longer In California." Shortrldge's reply was softly persuasive: "If Hawkcyes ara returning lo Iowa, It Is because they have made money enough tlo return, pay otr Ilielr mortgages tt:lt i live happily ever after."
