We realize that Blythuville, like other cities of the south, is not equipped '." handle snows such as have visited this section of the country this winter. Very likely the burden, financially as well as in physical equipment, is too severe for the city to carry alone. But there should be some form ol emergency set-up which can he set in motion under such circumstances without too much red tape or delay. Possibly a larger number of employes could be enrolled by the WPA, boll) to provide the additional help certainly needed in such weather and to supplement the usual local street department force. At any rale it i.s a lime when both the extra employment and the exlra .service are needed. « SO THEY SAY No lawyer can even approach this maze ot laws relating to veterans without becoming hopelessly confused.—Cornelius 11.

It hnrdly becomes England, as the Ijencllclary of American foreign policy, to force us to lahe positive measures to protect our rights on (he ucutval seas, consider the benefits England nns received and Is receiving from our lorcip.n policy.

Wo hnve favored British and French imports by not pulling into cflect the countervailing duties authorized against goods from nations which resort to barter and blocked exchange, as England and France have done on a wholesale scale since the war began. We have favored British Imports by letting (lie trade concessions granted under Ihe reciprocal trade pact remain In force, although me 15 per cent- drop In Ihe value of Ihe Brittsn pound lias, presumably, fully canceled out the concessions granted on our own exports.

THIS CURIOUS WORLD By William Ferguson DONOVAN stood on the deck of his houseboat, The Kathcrine, staring out toward The warm March sun found a bright reflection in Ashore, the fronds of palms swayed lazily in tho gentle spring breeze and from the fields c-ame the sound of Negroes shouting at (heir mules. Mike leaned over the rail as a small group of men and women appeared on Whaley's dock, laugh: "g and talking. "The .whole batch of them are Selling inlo the launch now, Katie," he yelled down to his wife "Don't be slow." "All right, Michael, all right" (Jt \v«s Michael, not Mike, when company was coming), "I'll he dressed in n minute and for Heaven's sake, don't call me Kalie before those people." Mike adjusted his commodore's cap and hurried toward the com- paniomvay to superintend the arrival of his luncheon guests. The Tom Sherwoods and the Frank Murrays, who owned winter homes on the South Carolina sea island, were the reason for the parly. Sherwood and Murray both served on boards of companies in which Mike owned the controlling stock. They were bringing their wives and house-guests with them today. * * * A FAT, bald-headed Irishman of 65, Mike Donovan -.v::a eccentric, exuberant and delightfully ingenuous. Rich enough to own the biggest steam yacht afloat, he stubbornly clung to his okl- foshioncd houseboat, because he had set his mind, when he helped him Inlo them at 10 that morning. He wore his white shoes as it they were a little loo tight and he'd just put them on for the first time. Mrs. Donovan poked her head out, as the distant put-put of the launch sounded over the water. "I'm here, Mike." When she was excited, she lapsed into Ihe familiar "Mike." "Go back," he answered. "It's proper for Ihe Missis to receive in the salon on a boat." She liked to be in good time, hut today she had been lafe because she couldn't make up her mind what to put on. This indecision ruffled her. She was naturally methodical. Silling carefully down on one of the chintz- upholstered lounge chairs, she smoothed her pink flannel dress beneath her and lilted her white fell hat to the left. She must have been preliy when she was a girl because her naiural good looks still showed through artificial concessions to beauty. But she never sought to conceal the fact that she dyed her hair (it was the new honey yellow with nice gold lints) and she was frank about liking plenty of rouge and lipstick. She said it gave her animation. She thought she ruled her husband, but lie had his own ideas on the subject. Her body tensed as the launch stopped and she heard Mike shout, Hello, folks. Welcome to the Kathcrine. Come aboard and meet Kalie." * « » A MOMENT later the party ' crowded inlo the salon. Mrs Donovan wished she'd fortified herself with a cocktail. She was afraid of these self-assuved, casual- mannered people. They always talked about places she had never been and things she'd never heard of.

"Taki," to the Chinese boy v/ho made a noiseless appearance, "bring (lie drinks on the hack porch." He winked at Sherwood, "That's all it really is." On deek Frank Murray joined Mrs. Donovan.
