The Highway Program- and Politics A recent pamphlet issued in Iji'lmlf of Lee (V/.orl, cnmlitl-.Uc fur govcn.ov, indicates that lie is to make thu .-l;il- highwty pvouram ami Ihr stale highway commission his chief piiinl of attack during the campaign. lie charges, among other tiling, legislative ,nianipula(.ii)ii, presumably <in the pavt of the commission or its ngcnls, to destroy the original intent of the iliirUiicau law, and pruniisi's, among other tilings, to initiate a mwis- . tire for the ropenl of the law establishing the long term, appointive highway commission. A member of the highway committee . has submitted to the Courier News an . answer to Mr. Cazort's allegations, written by 11. .11. Jackson for ll\e Marianna Courier-Index, will) the rainest thai we comment as we see fit. We have little comment to make, except that in our opinion attempts nn the part of Mr. Cazort or anyone clue to make politics out of the shite highway program at this time are unfortunate. There is nothing the matter with the -Miirtineau road law, nor with the amendments that have hcsn made to it, and if thu people of Arkansas send to Little liock a legislature made up Of men of intelligence and integrity, sincerely devoted to the welfare uf their state, and a governor of the same type, possessed of real executive ability, we will not have to worry about tlie high- s way cpnjmission nor •iiboul-ailinijiislrii- "tion of the'highway laws. If we fail to • send the right kind of representatives we had belter prepare ourselves to pay the penalty, in highway affairs mid other matters. When the law was passed establishing the highway commission on its present basis, making Us members appointive for terms of ten years, the Courier News endorsed it as a substantial step toward elimination of the commission from politics. We have bsen told that this act merely made the commission safe for the political organization now apparently domhumt in stale affairs. Maybe so, but wo (bn'l think a good highway system was ever built or ever will be built under political pressure.

If all the colton farmers' of the South follow this xmi of program tlie mailer of- acreage reduction will be solved, but whether they do or nol, the man who does follow it is protecting himself against the possibility of disaster.

"What's the News" When Columbus and his caravels returned from the New World, thc first question shouted from the shore was, "What's the news?" That's always the question of paramount importance. Years ago folks asked it of the post rider, thc soldier returned from the wars, the man who had been down to the settlements, or the neighbor back from the general store. Today, you find thc answer in your newspaper. Through thc newspapers the news of the world and of the community quickly be.comcs public knowledge. And remember this—it takes two kinds of news to make a modern paper complete. Thc first tells of happenings near and far—of fires, sports, elections, accidents, marriages, deaths, grelit men, great events. The second tells of things you eat, wear and use— things 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 in this paper as it is to read about what's doing in the world of events. Advcrtsittfj is an essential news service. It is distinctly to your advantage to be guided by it.
