A Perplexing Problem II is indeed <i perplexing problem lliat faces Blythcvillc's city council in determining just how far it fan go in providing protection ngainst lire. -Admittedly the cily'.s fire lighting equipment is not as adequate a.s it should be, fllythevillc could \\'c.\\ use another lire truck—a modern unit of fire lighting equipment. After all, tin; city's oldest lire truck has seen 20 ycaivi of service—which is a fairly loiif; service record for any type of mechanical equipment. Protection against lire and protection against damage to property and harm to the person (police protection) along with public health protection and sanitation form the. three basic reasons for existence of a municipal corporation. On the othher hand the council has to consider its budget and strive to keep expenditures in some balance with income. There is little likelihood ol n substantial increase in the city's income. Sometimes we are prone to treat the difficulties of the municipality too lightly and to feel that matters could be solved without great effort. But it, is problems such as face the council in this situation that emphasi/.e what a serious job this business of running the city's affairs is. 'City Officials Study A new interest in efficient management among many municipalities was manifested during 1<)39, according to the Public Administration Clearing House. Many finance officers, the Clearing House 'reported, were exhibiting an encouraging professional spirit toward llicir Jobs and were attending schools and training courses in an effort to make themselves more useful to the community. Any public official whose duties involve the handling of public funds has a serious vcsponsibiliy toward his community. Financial jobs are not posts for mere politicians. They demand training, accuracy, honesty. It is cheering to learn that publiu servants are taking their duties seriously. With trained people available for promotions to more important positions, local governments should make every effort not to dissipate their talent by handing out jobs to unqualified parly adherents.

COUIUEB NEWS Mobilizing Against Polio Folks of all ages, in large cities and small towns, will congregate in their community hulls on Jan. 30 lo celebrate the President's birthday. Millions of dollars will be collected, and the money, as usual, will bo used in the tight against infantile paralysis. Some of it will go lo the. Warm Springs Foundation in Georgia. Most of the funds will be retained by the individual coimmmilicji to help them battle (lie disease among their own people. Here is one campaign, already in progress, against which there will be no attack. The nation is virtually unanimous in ils desire to aid those who are left crippled by poliomyelitis attacks, to save those who arc not yet seriously afflicted. Here is one light which we don't want to watch idly from the sidelines.

The Soulh Is Rich I SIDE GLANCES MONDAY, JANUARY IB, 104ti| Not Ions ago tlic counlry was told on lilijl) nuLhority lliat Ihc South was its great economic problem, nut every render of yesterday's Issue: of The Wntl Slrect Journal, in which the great or part of 30 pages was devoted to exposition ot that Mellon'*- iintiirnl resources and its inctus- trlnl development for their utilization, must ro- vlse whatever impressions of the South he may Imvc based upon a loo hnsly generalization. For the South is in fact a rich seclion of '.no United Stales— rich in the extent and particularly the variety of Its soil and mineral resources; rich in the eagerness ami enercy of Ita people, In tlielr devotion to the welfare of thtir local comniunllles. If the belief linger.? amoni; us that Southerners live In dreamy rclrospecl of a vanished golden ng c or that the' youth or the South Is softened by yeiu-arouml 'sunshine, It is high. time that we squared our ideas \vitii a very different reality. "~ Regarded as a whole from an historical point of view, Industry fn the Souih is comparatively young. Doubtless llicre arc some ilisadvnntiiges in its youth, but there arc also Important advantages in the flexibility (hnt lies In recent Ijeglnnlnss, in the resultant ability to me':; changing conditions in these days of accelerated change In i production methods and rmirkct demands. Accordingly, we find (hat one of the most modern of industries, chemical production, has moved and is moving vigorously Into (he South. It may not l)c loo much lo nay that industrial chemistry mul the industrial Soulh arc growing up together. Certainly the South lias ils problems. Urge segments of Its rural population live at an economic and cultural level which neither the Soulh nor Ihc country can regard with cqmx- Htmlty. nut similar problems exist in greater or less degree in many other parts of the United States; nowhere cnn they be regarded wilh indifference or minimized. Neither should they be exaggerated in the public mind out of their (me proportions to the national scene. Cilvcn time and as nearly equitable surrounding conditions ns the wit of man in a democracy can devise, (he South will work out Ils problems .is well as any other broad section of the commonwealth— and perhaps n little more rapidly than some others. I" any case we shall do well in rid ourselves of lingering sectional prejudices, in ail directions.

We'll operate tomorrow morning, if you agree." » « * 1TH the dispatch which characterized Dr. O'Connell, Mary found herself: a patient in a private room in the same hospital she liad loft only a few weeks earlier. She purposely waited unlil the iruolling routine of tests was over lo read the letter from Gilbert, She had to be alone. , "My dear," she read, "Dr. O'Connell will bring you this message from me because I fear you have not received any of my letters. Service is uncertain and vastly slow in wartime. "You will soon undergo this operation. When I trust you to Dr. O'Connell I'm leaving you in the best hands I know. You have my best wishes for all the luck in the world. "This has to be brief because Dr. O'Connell is leaving immediately. But it carries sincere affection. "Gilbert." Mary leaned back on her pil- ow, the letter tight in her hand. So lie had written! The words she had just read irought back the first lime she wd ever seen his red head lower - ng above others in the air raid heller.

Mary had waited scarcely at all when the deep bass voice of Dr. O'Connell boomed: "So this is Gilbert's wife. And how are you, my dear?" Dr. O'Connell had a thick tlialch of iron gray hair. A smile twinkled in eyes behind steel- bowed spectacles. "Before I left ,1110 Base Hospital I was given this to deliver to you." He handed her a letter addressed in Gilbert's handwriting. Mary reached eagerly tor the letter, aware anew of a feeling she could not name. "Now let's have a look.
