Xj . . — — ——Throwing Money Away •" ' Addressing a meeting of farmers »t i,,,;. Carulhersville recently, M. D. Ani'• .burgey, Pemiscot county agricultural / 'extension agent, declared that if all ;' of the county's cotton acreage wore '"• -planted to pure seed of adapted var- •' ieties the annual income of Pemiscot - cotton growers 'would be increased ^ $260,000. We don't kno.w just how Mr. Am- 4 bin-gey arrived at the llgure, but if - what he said is true of Pemiscot 'county then certainly it is also true of Mississippi county, Arkansas, and of — other Northeast Arkansas and Sou Hi" east Missouri counties. ;- The St. Francis river valley has the < soil and' climate to produce cotton of J good character and staple. When it ,'j is used for the production of cotton ;;>" of inferior or mixed quality, or when W careless handling is permitted lo dc•'•>' stray the quality of good cotton, money is being thrown away. The fanners of the Osceola district of this county have made considerable progress toward the diminution of inferior varieties and toward batter handling". > They have achieved a community reputation as a result of which, local ginnei's and cotton buyers tell us, Osceohi cotton often brings several dollars a bale' more than Blytheville cotton of identical quality. Enough inferior cotton is produced in the vicinity of Blytheville to have a depressing effect upon the market for all cotton from this community. ' ,., The trend is in the ,right,direction. /•Recently each-year .'hit's-seen an increased 'proportion of good seed planted in northern Mississippi county and in Pemiscot county. Further progress is necessary. We are told that for next year ginners hereabouts arc planning to give greatly increased attention lo grade and staple in their purchases of cotton. More power to theiS? They have it in their power to drive home to each individual producer the harm which every bale of low quality cotton does - to the entire cotton industry of the comjnum'ty. \\ Subversive Mr. Tugwid • The retirement of Rexford G. Tugwell may or may not. have particular significance in regard to future policies of the Roosevelt administration. What can be said definitely is that it removes from the scene one of the BtrangeHt bogeymen evcv viewed with alarm by tub-thumping patriots. If your memory is equal to the burden of recalling the red scares of the recent campaign, you nihy remember that Mr. Tugwcll was supposed to represent everything that was radical, .subversive, and anti-capitalistic; He' was a sinister wider-cover Stalin, and, if the administration were returned to power, he would lead us straight to a socialistic perdition. So what? So the administration triumphed—and the subversive Mr. Tugwell promptly resigned and look a nice, well-paying job for himself with a capitalistic corporation, SIDE GLANCES % George Clark Merchant of Death Had Sir Basil Znharofl becii the Invention of nil E.

Enough was known about the super-salesman of munitions lo place him in his proper'his- torical 'iilche, however. He ami his lellow m- vestors 1 were Ihc real victors in every war in which Zaharolf had ti finger—anc'. that included most of,»them during his long career. Said Lord Bcaverbrook: ."The destinies of nations are his sport, ^flie movement, of armies his special delight, in- the 'mike of war, Oils mysterious figure moves over tortured Europe." Said a Paris writer: "The decorations, Iho billions, Ihe principality—all Ih'csc Sir Basil ZaharoK gained b v v selling 1 'to. his lellow men precisely what fills 1 '' them ;tnost wllli horror. He has sold them sudden' death." Uut it would 'be superficial lo condemn Zalmioir outl'leht as the villian of Europe's bloody drama.-: Whatever he must answer for, ho was only Ihe agent of a vicious system. By his native ability and skill, he rose lo premier position wllhln that system, lie is BOlie, but the syslem survives. "Its leprescnla- tlvcs, as he did, -will sell their wares to both sides In the ; next conflict. They will foment < Ihe war scares that make their business thrive.

For a while, looking about tlie rooms sl-.c had created, she had been proud, '-pleased, ' and a bit softened. IIcv expression had been a reflection pf this uplift. But it v/as gone now; she wore again the defiant look of a hypersensitive person who is bitterly conscious of having less money than the neighbors. Mareia Canfield was tlie un- Unowlng author of the latter expression. Marcla, who had everything! Well, 'falc and other people's intentions notwithstanding, here was something which Mareia or any one else would not appropriate without. a battle! A voice on the wire said "Hello." Dorolhy leaned toward the phone. * t * - TJRUC13 McDOUGALL likewise surveyed his new home with a cense of 'satisfaction. Except for l:is books, a few pictures and his drawing board, he had done nothing toward creating the rooms, but, since they fell within the broad category of what he wanted, he was as pleased with, them as Dorothy Osborn was pleased. with the fruits of her own labors.
