Education and Industry Elsewhere in this paper is :i report of an address t>y Di-. Chm-lcs Hilinaii Brotigh in wliieli Arkansn.s' Jiujioiod war-tinio governor is quoted as wanting friends of education of a campaign against fi-£ C schools by inlerosfs desiring cheap labor. Tlic governor, if lie is correctly quoted, is seeing things. Lack of education and cheap labor, in the sense of poorly paid labor, K0 hand in hand. But lack of education and cheap labor, in the sense of efficient and capable labor, are incompatible. There arc n good many employers in tin's country who still think lliat the poorest paid labor is the most profitable to them. Perhaps they nn> in favor of keeping laboring- men ignorant. Hut the heads of institutions that are responsible for industrial progress in (his . country have learned tlml labor thai can be obtained for the lowest wages is the most expensive labor. They demand and obtain intelligent, well educated men and women, an;l find it profitable to pay a high price to gel sueh labor; they conduct schools in their own plants to increase the earning capacity and the producing capacity of their employes. Educational progress and business progress have gone 'hand in hand in this country. The richest industrial centers of the United States are the p«n- ters best provided with free educational facilities. The most profitable individual industries are those tli.U have •leawificUhe-value of high', priced labor. These facts are so «-ell- knnivn (hut apostles of ignorant and cheap labor are only found among the most shortsighted and unprogressive of employers. Mr. BroiiKh is wrong when lie couples criticism of some phases of the Arkansas educational program with a desire to keep the people in ignorance. Real friends of education in this state have attacked the present administration for its readiness to spend state money for the creation of new .state schools of higher learning or expansion of old onrs because our first problem is so to perfect our common school system as to provide grade school and liijrli school opportunities for every child in the state. Adequate elementary and secondary education is what Arkansas needs today, ami as long as that situ- atiou exists it is n'iiiiiiial to spend large sum.s ol' |jiil-,i(? r:;:..•:<••.• lo dot Ule .state \villi *m;iil nnd vih'ivi-ly expensive iiioUtuliiirts i:f iui!>;'.:iiU' rmik.

Advertising would hasten the end oi his business career— put him to a tost he could not . The man \vho advertises, deliberately invites your inspection. He tells you about his product or his merchandise and then lets it stand on its own merit. You can depend on him. He knows his product is good. That's one reason why it pays you to read the advertisements you find in the columns of this paper. It is through advertising that you are able to keep in touch with the good things that progressive business men are spending heir money to introduce and to keep before you.
