Grade Crossing Projects In the spending of several million dollars of federal money on 11 grade crossing ellnu'nnlion program in Arkansas this year projects wftrc .selected to a large extent on llio basis of .the available supply of iclicf labor and the ratio of labor cost to total - cost. As a result somo expensive overpass structures were creeled at points where traffic secTns scarcely sufficient to justify the investment, while certain highly dangerous crossings on heavily traveled roads were passed up. _ _^We have a case in point right ut . 'home. - Authorization was made for the construction" ~of nu overpass to oliminate the Highway 61-Frlsco railroad crossing at Yarbro in this county. This crossing is on the most heavily tiaveied highway in the stnlc. It is - obviously - dangerous, npiproachiiig •trains being concealed by buildings, and has been the scene of a number of fatal and near-fatnl accidents. Yet because the county was unable to provide the money for the right of way the allocation for tliis project •was transferred to Lawrence county and used for the elimination of a crossing on Highway 03, where the traffic is not one-tenth what it is at Yarbro. ,Iu support of this action it was argued that the money was made avnil- able primarily to create jobs and Hint it would have been improper to,, use a par^of it for the purchase of-llio right of way. That line of reasoning - was not without merit. We note, however, that a, rtcent dispatch from Washington reports additional federal funds for grade crossing eliminnlion - work are to be made available to Ar- -kansas, this time as a part of the regular federal highway program instead of as an emergency measure to relieve unemployment. Wo hop B that the Yarbro crossing, which we believe one of the most dangerous in the state, will receive the consideration of the-state highway commission in the. allocation of these new funds.

But very soon protests began to come in. The bombs were scaring the fish—to say nothing of the fishermen. New York's Governor Lehman considered those protests, wrap- pod them up in a letter, and sent it to the; War Department. And now the War Department, heeding the protests, has announced that no more bombs will bo dropped on or at-Fort Tyler. The flyers have been called iofl'; lish and ' can' brealhe easily. A pleasant little story, this—which shows how many miles we are removed from militarism of the European variety. Imagine a similar situation arising in Italy, Germany, or Russia; can't you .see the head of the army, his very spurs bristling with 'indignation, announcing that bombing practice was good for the..soul and that lish and lisheKmen would just have'to like it? But in America the army politely says: "Oh—we are scaring the fish? Excuse it, please—wo won't do it anymore." • War, Peace and Population:.". How Inconsistent "notions sometimes are Is niilly iliown by a quotation from a book by Waircn Thompson, student of population tiends. soys Mr. Thompson: "As soon ns a imputation - grows Ms, Its lenders say: 'Our people itrc so numerous wo must fight for more space.' As soon us war has taken place, tho leaders invert this appeal, and say: 'We must breed ''more people In prcpaiatlon for the next war.'" Sounds silly when expressed that way, doesn't it?

' Engineer ;Sails 1,500,996 Miles With One Line NEW YORK (UP)—When tlie Clara docks at New 12 from Valparaiso, iiner Santa York Jan. Ihtlc, Chief Engineer diaries H! Elliott will have completed exactly 1,500,995 miles in 23 years with tiie Grace Line. During that period, which included two years transporting troops through' the submarine infested Mediterranean, he lias never met with a disaster at sea. The worst that ever befell him wns the loss of a couple of propeller blades when they tangled with submerged wreckage. Born in Philadelphia, Elliott started his career at sea at the age of 24. Ho is now 53. His roster of travel reads like a page rrotn a . geography book. One of the first men to go through the Panama Canal, he since has traversed the "big ditch" more than 200 times. He has been around 'the bottom of the earth" — through the Straits of ivragellan— some 14 or 15 times and crossed the Atlantic a dozen times to take troops ami supplies to France and then to bring them home after the war. Asked recently what he thought of youths making a career' for themselves at sea, Elliott said: "My.advice is that if a boy .lias a yearning to go to sen, by all means go. There is more chance today than ever before for a youth to make a real career for liim- > good and the it was when I first started. I wouldn't trade my job for the best of those on land." self..
