Where Was Industry Plank in Governor's Race? To those who are interested In the Industrial development of Arkansas, tha recant red hot gubernatorial campaign wa» disappointing in that none of the eandidates, either in the first primary or the subsequent runoff, came .forth with a strong platform plank concerning this serious phase of the state's economic life. And industrialization holds the key to many of the problems by the candidates . . . and we don't refer to divorces, "Florida promoters," or personal problems. We say industrialization solves more than just the employment and population problem because'states with diversified industry, and a fair share of It, are peculiarly devoid of many of the problems v which beset the likes of Arkansas and Mississippi. For instance: North Carolina, perhaps the industrial leader in the South, recently completed a four-year program which encompassed hard surfacing of every road on which a school bus runs. This was in addition to the state's planned program of major highway construction and maintenance, which ranks it near the top in miles of paved surface highways. And several weeks ago, Governor Kerr Scott reported that some ?36 million was being channeled into North Carolina's general fund. That was sin-plus of the past fiscal year. Of course, one of the main issues of the campaign was honesty and morality. Every citizen has a right to expect his elected public servant to serve honestly and efficiently. But it is clear that the sorry situations which we are faced with (highways and schools to name two) will be more readily resolved when the overall earning and producing power of the state is increased. And surely this must be done through providing more and better jobs for more people. If the wealth of the state isn't increased, we will be scrambling from one crises to another, ad infinitum. Study of Mental Disease Is Vital Contribution There are today about a half million patients in mental institutions ir^ this country. That's one out of every 300 population. The incidence of mental disease is about one in 20. That means one out of every 20 people now has a mental disease, lias had it, or will have it. Because menta! hospitals are so overcrowded, many people suffering from mental disease cannot get in. Just how many is not definitely known. BLYTHEVILLR (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Furthermore, according to the American Psychiatric Association, nbout 45 per cent of the patients in mental hospitals are in the old-agn group— "with or without psychoses," an association spokesman explains. His point is that too many old poo- pie are being placed in public mental institutions today because rising costs of living have made it impossible for their relatives to support them. Rut thorp is another angle of the relationship lietween mentfil disease and economic status that is being explored in a trail-breaking study by a team of Yato University scientists working with support of a $78,000 grant from the United States Public ifealth Service. Already the Ya!e team reports it has found a higher rule of deranged persons in the lower soi-ial-rponomic classes and more 7)ourotics in llio higher. Also, schizophrenia, the leading mental disc.isr-, was found 1 to occur mostly in the lower economic classes. Aljoul 40 per cent of all mental hospital patients are schizophrenics, and unfortunately for the country's welfare, the diseasB strikes most heavily at younger people. While they draw few positive conclusions from their studies thus far, the scientists suggest that the large number of seriously deranged persons in the lower economic group inay be because they couldn't afford to have, or continue to have, the necessary treatment, and'so the diseases became progressively worse. Most of the poorer cases studied were in state hospitals, while 60 per cent of the more well-to-rio had private care. Generally, as the -economic level of the patient, so did the quality of the therapeutic treatment ha received. But the study has only just gotten under way, comparatively speaking. Much remains to be done in this as in other aspects of a disease which takes such a large toll of our people. The contribution of tho Yale group can be an Important one. THURSDAY, AUGUST 14, 1952 Views of Others America's Secret Weapon Ai little us w« think about It, one of America's most potent "secret" weapons Is no farther away than the closest modern fnrm. in the mechanical, botanical nnd chemical magic that Is now being applied to tjiq science ot farming there Is a potential rne,ifts-for bringing permanent peace to nil the peoples" ol the ctirth. It is one of the best proved maxims of history that a well-fed people Is a peaceful people. Most, wars find their ultimate sources in economics and the base, of any economic picture Is the foodstuffs and raw materials that man grows or mines from the enrlh. Wars come when the have-nots attempt to take what thoy need by violent mentis. Today's explosive world situation Is directly traceable to this same source. There is a large segment of the earth's population, including the Russians, tho Chinese and the Indians, to whom famine, poverty and an abysmal standard of living are the rule rather than the exception. It is In these regions that the seeds of communism bear fruit. It is here that hate, despair, greed and every human wickedness flourish, where men are. willing or anxious to rile because there Is no incentive to live. Communism finds its fanatic re- cfuit-s amonj! the hungry people of the world. The well-fed, intelligent peoples seek Instead the truth, justice and peace that can improve the lot of all. That is why in America, there is still to be found the hope of the world buttressed by such "secret weapons" as our ability to produce more and better products with less labor. That is why on Ihe average Amerir.ui farm today there is an equivnlent mllit.iry or economic potential to a company of soldiers in the field or a small factory. Our ability to riefmd ourselves or to bruit? peace to others Is dependent on our ability to produce. Few people of the non-rural segment of our population today really (he extent to which scientific know-how ha? been applied to this business of farming. Your modern farmer is a chemist and an cnstnrcr. He plants no loneer by the almanac in land that he "thinks" might produce. Instead he plants treated seed in testrd eround according to the latest scientific information furnished him by a rorp^ of experts. This then is our "MViet weapon.". It Is not a weapon a'.cme lor »hile it can definitely be an instrument for war. it :s also an Instrument Tor peace and prosperity and happiness. Its potentialities for sood are Immensely ereater than Us potentialities for destruction and death. —Savannah iOa.)

The 50-division goal for the NATO army, set at Lisbon last February, cannot possibly be met.

The story coming; from Paris is that unless the French government gets $600 million worth of defense orders from the United States, the French government .will be bankrupt.

The opening lead looked like a singleton. A pretty grim situation, but pitched his out of Erskin it very neatly. He drew three rounds of trumps, and then laid down the ace and queen of spades. Branca won with the king of spades, naturally, but was then up a tree. If he conlinvieri spades, dummy's ten would set up; and if he shifted to clubs, Erskine would get a free finesse.
