Doing Our Duly 'Comment on the jjropo.siil .to incut the financial needs of otiv sclion) sy.s- Um through a volunUi-y tax has hixn so generally favorable that lliere should !>c no rc;il difficulty, lieside the j task of making the canvas, in s the pledges of the necessary 75 per cent of the property in the Blylheville school district, The situation reflects the realization on the part of the people of the com- rmim'ly that inniiitciiiincc (if a first, class school system is one of their first obligations and a willingness on the part of each property ownur (o do his share in carrying the burden. The provision that the plan will only become effective when at least 75 pel- cent of the property in the district has been pledged to the extra tax makes it certain that no one will be asked to pay u grossly disproportionate shave of the cost of maintaining the schools. In signing the'petition and pledge for the extra tax Blythcvillc pro[nn-ly holders as individuals are merely volunteering to do what an unreasonable provision of the constitution prevents their doing as a political entity. For Land Owners At the farm outlook meeting yesterday, when the experts had finished telling of the benefits to be gained by . growing the farm feed supply on the farm, one of the fanners present raised an interesting point. ,' "I agree with yoii," fie "said, "llial « farmer is better off growing his own feed, but what is a man going to do when his landlord refuses (o supply him with a barn for his hay or a L-rib for his corn?" "Aly advice to you, brother," said Comity Agent Glitz, "is to get a new landlord." Tlie advice was sound but, in the nature of things, not easy to put into practice in every case. The time has arrived, however, when the landlord in this county who is awake to his own best interests will sec to it that his farms arc provided with gnud houses and good farm buildings. Those who fail ta do so will have to put up with the poorest class of tenants or, in somc cases, will, none at all, to their OUT OUR WAY _Bt/YTHEVII,LE, (ARK.) COURIRR.NRWa own loss and to the loss of the entire community. Permanent agricultural prosperity is not built upon a foundation of migratory cruppers and tenants with no interest in (lie land they work but gutting the biggest possible return for the least possible output in effort. The landlord who provides real homes for his tenants and who cooperates with them in a program that not only makes the tenant a better farmer but safeguards llu> fertility of tho soil is flic iiiiin w!i» will profit in tlio long run. Alarming //ie Super-Patriot The Iliings thai can set some of our super-patriots acjiiivor witli alarm are a bit pmtliiir, to say the least. Not Jong j|jf« (',. 15. Oxman, pesidcut of DH'aiuv University, addressed the prisoners at the Indiana state reformatory. If..-- urged the prisoners that "America fii>l" lie inlerpri-lcd "in terms til' world service and not first in theft of .Mexican oil lands." A remark like llial would sucnn to be sensible and enlightened enough for anyone. Hut various Indiana •sii|>oi--pa- triols are besieging Attorney General James M. Ojf.leii demanding that he put on a slale-widi "red limit"—and setting up President • Oxman's speech as an example of the subversive, propaganda that is going around!' If a statement like President Oxman's is a peril to uur country, we must be in a mure desperate condition than jWe have ever suspected. Comparing Tax Collections in Two Counties When the auditors of Hit sjalc comptroller's office filed n i-c]iort ou their examination ol the books if Callioitn county for (he calendar year 1M, they (liicclsd iil'.umlon to u sUiintion thai must be hit-lily gratifying lo the people of that county.
