On Citizenship and Progress After an afternoon of none too pro- (liiclivfl effort in bjjiiiir of Uu fund that is necessary to maintain our schools on a basis commensurate with • the needs of our children and miv self- respect as a community the editor of the Courier News received a real thrill this morninjr \ n the form of a check for $100 from Theodore Hedilin of Evansville, Iml. Mr. Rechtin's check, to be npplied to the. tuition fund, IK the unsolicited answer of a non-i-osidrnl lo what lie regarded as a call upon all who have an interest in the welfare and proKress : of Blytlieville. When all of our citizens attain an equal appreciation of the kind of citizenship that 'makes for civic progress wo will be near a realization of the opportunities that exist for Blytheville and Mississippi county. * + « It is a fallacious notion, all loo prevalent, that the community has an obligation tojjrovidc a living or make a profit for those who own properly or do business here. Wealth is not created by the msre .ownership of land, nor by the putting in of a stm-k of goods. .It comes from jniUinjr land to productive use or from rendering service to one's fellow citizens. . The man who will Fuceccd doesn't complain that be is setting a raw deal when he fails to receive the profits he expected. Rather; he asks himself in what respect be is fatting to do his job in a way lo make his operations profitable, if be is a producer, or->to command the patronage of his-potential customers, if he is offering merchandise 01- professional services. If he is a smart enough man to provide the answer he has solved his problem. Taxes arc universal. To pay them is not a virtue but a necessity. Property is not forced upon anyone. It is bought for use, or in the hope of deriving a profit from rentals or appreciation in value. The wise properly owner, when values decline or become stagnant, will waste no time complaining, but will put bis shoulder to the wheel in behalf of any program that promises to make his community a better place in which to live, work, and do business. One way to make certain that properly values arc maintained is to keep our schools on a high level. * * » County Judge George Warliam, in rc- 'fusing to permit u#c of the county property In-Keen the courthouse and the 1'Yisco right uf way for a national guard armory, i>r. ilk-l* that within lim years ,\Iis.-;i-.-ippi connly will need i\ new county building lo house the county's agriculciral and public health workers.

In diaper fabrics, durability is important. Flannelct and canton flannel lose the nap and. their pow. cr of absorbing water after wash- Ing and scrubbing. Knit fabrics stand up much belter and one set of knitted diapers has been found In hospital wards to outwear three sets of the woven fabric. Practically all families must con. sldcr the cost of various garments I Clotton is '•clieapcrt; cotton and raycn mixed cost slightly more. Wool and cotton or wcol and rayon are next In order. Pure wool Is higher and silk and wool is most expensive 1'erhaps the best chnlce for the average person is a mixture of rayon and wool, which looks well and d not In-Mating. Bird's eye and flannelct are more popular for I diapers, but the knitted fabrics outwear them in the long run and arc therefore more economical. Doctors Snellliig and Brown arc , convinced that Ihe ideal underwear ! is one which combines warmth, ! ready and rapid absorplion, lack of 3kin irritation and durability with mcderatc cost. For this purpose the two-layer fabric seems most desirable. JgKJKSDAY, FEBRUARY 0, 16 NO IHUCIAI.

The local independent business man carries all his surplus tuiHls in his local bank. The dejxwit of the chain store does not pay for the service rendered. It is a loss to the bank. Also, the independent bank has the .same sort of competition from the group or chain bank systems. The more objectionable group svs- tem we have had in increasing importance for several years the chain system of banking will come to meet the competition of the group svs- tem. The two will remove the old unit system of banks owned and controlled by local business men who are closely in touch with, and responsive to, local needs and conditions. It is the independent unit bank that is todav standing between the people of smaller communities and the foreign control and domination of group As an independent unit bank we are fight- ine the same battles that are being fought bv the independent merchant. The independent merchant and the independent 'bank must survive or perish together. It i s but natural, therefore, thai this bank should be vitally interested in riorWi I e : ast < mc e being made by the independent merchant.
