A Better Newspaper The affiliation of the Courier News with the world wide news gathering organization of the United Press Associations, effective today, is to be followed shortly with the addition of a number of hew features which will give readers of this newspaper a larger, more entertaining anil more informative paper than they have had in the past. The proprietors of the Courier News feel that their first responsibility is to give the most accurate and complete presentation ]wssible of the daily oc- curences of Biythevillc, ilississippi county, and the St. Francis basin area of northeast Arkansas and southeast Missouri. That is the policy thai has guided this newspaper throughout the year recently closed, and it is our hope and expectation in 1930 to make this part of our service decidedly better. New correspondents are being added and . other , arrangements completed •which will insure our renders prompt and authoritative information' on what is going on in their own communities. But it is oiir'desire to do more than this,.and as opportunity presents itself additional services will be added that will make the Courier News from every standpoint a complete newspaper. While this development is in progress we want our subscribers to feel" free to let us know what they like about the Courier News, and what they dislike. Interests differ, and naturally we do not hui>c to produce a pa]>cr that will apireal equally - to. all of our readers, but if you will let us know in what ways the Courier News fails to meet your expectations you will h«]p us to give you the kind of paper you want. unable or unwilling to let their acts or their opinions stand or fall on the basis of their real merits. It is easier to claim , allegiance with Coil than to demonstrate the rislilncss of one's program. For a number of years) we have been told that prohibition, among other things, i.s I'iglil because it is God's will. Now a member of Congress startles us by declaring that prohibition must be wrong because God is opposed to it. 11 would simplify Uu conduct of human affairs if these persons who have special revelation of the divine will could direct nil worldly affairs, lint it doesn't lend any practical assistance to have so many conflicting intn-prcla- tions of I ho divini 1 will. The ordinary mortal, with no better light to guide him, will do well to take his .stand on public questions on the basis ol 1 his best understanding of tli3 public welfare and the moans by which it may be advanced. Ho will make plenty of mistakes but no more than by following thu jiukUmce of those who tell him that God wants what they --want. JjjXTHEVlLLE, (ARK.)

God's Rcnjamm Franklin once said that tho. best way to worship God is by serving one's fellow men, but that prayer is an easier'anil therefore more popular way The same thought might be given a little turn to apply to those who seek to justify their aims or partisan prejudices by asserting that they are on God's side or God is on theirs. Religion, like patriotism, is sometimes a refuge of scoundrels. More often, and equally unfortunately, it is the resort of those It was a While Christmas, but it wasn't, until January that lather's bank account got snowed under. WASHINGTON — The capital's most famous baby—Paulina Long- woth—missed her opportunity to shake handi with the President of the United'States at his reception New Year's day. Paulina drove to the White House with her fathed and mother, but Ehc got no farther than the door. After Speaker Nick and Ptlnccss Alice had stepped from'the car. the chauffeur whisked little Paulina back lioine., Later Paulina's mother explained to some of her friends why Hie little girl was not permitted to remain. "She was chewing gum," said Princess Alice. "And, anyway, she's too young." liul if Paulina's fondness for cum caused he lo miss the President's icception, there was another little girl high in Washington's official family who got (he biggest thrill of her life at the White House during tho holiday season.

The territory for which he is responsible may cover a small portion of a single state, an entire state, or even parts of two or more states. He knows almost from minute to min ute just what the demands for light and power in his territory will be. 1-Ic must know in advance of the approach of a storm, for -this means that everywhere lights will be snapped on. As the day advances he presses first one key and then another, and one generating plant after another springs into life. With another keyboard this great supply of power is released into tens of thousands of outlets ' and the day's activities are under way. He must always keep his supply of electric current constant and at' a level with the demand—at the same time he must be prepared to meet temporary surges in that demand. Arkansas-Missouri Power Co.
