Such projects have pryven Hurcossfiil and valuable elsewhere, and lh:ro is a need ami an opportunity for MM here, but the mere fact tlial a relatively smnll group of men have taken up the task do:s not guarantee .success. If tho people of Blytheville and Mississippi • county want a fair it will not do for them to .sit back in cheerful anticipation of its being provided by somcona else. It is a lai-ye enough undertaking to require the active supiwt, expressed in dollars, of everyone. Benefits of a fair such as is sought for Blytheville are twofold. First and most important is the indirect advantage to be gained through the inmilive to better and hence more' profitable agriculture that a fair gives. The achievement of a sound and prosperous agriculture for this region nmsl be .the goal of every resident of Mississippi county tirirl of the entire St. Francis basin who hopes to see his own business and his community go forward rather than backward. Benefits of this kind which a good fair will produce will accrue not only to Hlylhcville but to every community within the radius of the fair's influence. Second, and of direct and immediate importance to tho business IIHMI of Hly- tnevilk-, are the benefits "which' -will ' conie'fo-them.through the-trade which tho holding, here of a real lair will bring into thc-ir stores. This is about the only kind of benefit that Carnth- erbville has derived from its fair, because it has been a race meet ami a carnival, with little, in the way of agricultural exhibits. A survey conducted by fair officials there satisfied the business men of Cnrtilliersvillc that from that standpoint alone tho fair is worth while. There is no reason to doubt thai tone-fits of this kind (o be derived from a fair at Blytheville would be greater than at Caruthersvillc, because our fail- is to have the agricultural and educational features that the Carulher.svillt; fair lacks, and because uf ISlylhcville's more advantageous location. Occasionally a community grows OUT OUR WAY rapidly in size and prosperity through the iiifJux of c-ii|)ifal from iviliiout. That ordinarily results lYum the discovery and d.volopmeisl <>( some natural wealth, such ;is gold or oil. Most communities that nii-kc progress do so because of the c-1'i'i-rlri of their own citizens, Blytheville and Mississippi county cx|X:rienccd a |:i-rioi! ol 1 rapid growth while our thiib.r was being cut am) ' our Innd drnmu! ;unl opened up for cul- (ivntion. Our I'esources nllraclcil many people and brought a period of comparatively effortless progress and prosperity. Thai era is largely past. If we arc to gn ahead is must be principally by our own efforts,• by the turning buck into fiV development and build- inp up of our city and the surrounding country of the .-iirplu.i derived from OKI cxpluilatiuit di' uiir rc-oiirccs. That surplus, .in ru-i-nl year,-;, has not been large, but that only gives iill the more IMISOII for iniiliirig ei'lLvtive UKU of it. The ap|)li[-i1tioi[ u!' this argument is simply this; ThoM- I'esidents of Blythc- vill; and .Mi.>si-'si|i[;j cotittly who realize the fundanidilal rtlalionship between agriculture and business of all kinds in this region—and u-ho (lueslioiis it'!— will welcome (•ppnrlimilies to invest in future prosperity by anitributinir in proportion to I heir ability to every projici ' for agricultural advancement. The proposed MiVi.-sippi county fail- corporation will pay .small dividends if any out of its earning.-?, but it will pay large dividends iti its contribution to the advancement and prosperity of the community.

So we call your attention to Safety Director Edwin D. Barry of Cleveland. A couple of (hoii.-aud .pljbs.s men, led by fJomiminisU), put on a •demonstration un the steps of Cleveland city hall the other day. They were in ail ugly mood, and they provoked a fight with ; police ; which ended in a whule- «l!e clubbing. Ordinarily V Ufa! wb'.ild mean a'rigid clamping down on all similar (k'lnoiititrali.-ms.

J hroug-li the newspapers the news of the world and of the community quickly be.comes public knowledge. And remember this— it takes two kinds of news to make a modern paper complete. The first tells of happenings near and far— of fires, sports, elections, accidents, marriages, deaths, great men, great events. The second tells of things you eat, wear and use - tilings you buy, things being sold to your friends and neighbors. This news is advertising. It's just as important to keep up to date on the advertising m this paper as it is to read about what's doing in the world of events. Advcrtsing is an cssc?itial news service. It is distinctly to your advantage to be guided by it. ,
