Neiv tnrnis will be under way within a few weeks, nncl the youngster* will be back in classes learning not only reading, writing and arithmetic, us in the days gone by, but much pine in addition. Never before have the children of Northwest Arkansas had such fine plants to house the school ronnic, and t h i s year particularly, are the faculties of the various' institutions fhrnt rule. Everything for the child's comfort is provided; his environment while in school is going to be of the| very best. And those who have been selected to teach him are well educated theinselves. iAfi America has grown, EO has its school system, until at present teaching the youngsters of the United States is indeed Big Business. Millions of dollars are expended on the most modern of school plants, upon equipment of the latest dp- sign. Everything a teacher needs is made accessible. The children are transported . to and from the classroom buildings. They arc fresh when they beghi classes in the morning, and the complete facilities they have to serve them in this ara are not exceeded anywhere. True, Arkansas needs to increase the (salary scale for the teachers who train the children, but this, too, will come. Perhaps now, as never before, the public is conscious of the pay schedule for the faculty members, and it fs our true belief t h a t the payments for this kind of work will rise within the next fen years. Meanwhile, those hired to teach are capable and sincere, and most certainly for the most part have their hearts rn their work--which in itself goes a long way toward making « success of teaching, as it does anything else. Once again we present our .annual School Edition. We find much tn be proud of in this section of the state in the education field. We think after you have read some of the stories and viewed some nf the pictures presented here, you also will take a distinct pride in the schools operated throughout the region. * Big Business Indeed If we didn't suspect that the chicken business in Northwest Arkansas had crown into a real, honest-lo-goodness Big Thing, the figures released yesterday by the Census Bureau should convince us. Let them speak for themselves: Benton County is the third county in the whole United States in the production and sale of chickens. Benton County growers sold 11,666,570 chickens for J8.849.0in. Washington County raisers sold 10.382.'188 chickens for $,945,305, for fourth ranking spot in the nation. And, if you don't think the industry still is growing, take a look at the many new chicken houses dotting the landscape in this region. Legion head says U.S. is afraid of the truth. Thorn's more reason to be afraid of cheap imitations. THE WASHINGTON Merry- Go-Round By DItW fEARSON (White Drew Pea rum is on a vacation, the Washington Mcrry-Go-Round is bcins written by several distinguished guest columnists, today's being A. V. Astln, director, National Bureau of Standards.) Washington--The weeping M-ienti/ie technological development nf the past few decades have n a t u r a l l y arnui-ed confijrlcrahle speculation no f u t u r e trends. In terms nf m a j n r developments, a f f e c t i n g our way of l i f e , sevi fields appear very promising The clues t« these lie in ihe pasi.

One of these influences is the availability nf hew tnnJs fnr research and therapy in i h p form of radioactive materials.

These will be computerlike machines capnlile nf processing all sorts of Information. In particular, they w i l l take over much routine bookkeeping and inventory operations, realizing considerable economies in government and business. * * * Most of these developments--as well a:; many others--have the following .feature in common: They represent the application of k n o w n knowledge of specific problems. Radically new principles of science are not involved. The slnry of the atomic energy illustrates this. The development would have been impossible without, first, some 50 years of ba^ic work in alnmir. nuclear, and electron physics which preceded it and, second, without the unprecedented concentration of talent and facilities which compressed many years nf necessary additional research and development into a few. Vet major areas of nuclear physics still remain unknown or poorly understood, calling for additional research. Advances in basic research are apt to come slowly. Partly, that is the nature of such progress, fnr it involves the accumulation of a great deal of data about the properties of matter. But another reason is that we. arc inclined to emphasize applied research and development rather than fundamental work. H is easier In obtain support fnr development work, which leads tn practical thincs, than for basic research, which founds visionary. The interplay between basic science and its applications is complex. Without basic research, advances in applied science arc impossible. But the applications themselves often contribute to future basic research by providing t h e materials and tools. The applications also often require further fundamental investigations. The field of radio communications illustrates this. With the opening up of ihe higher frequencies as a result of World War II work in radar, we have found ourselves w i t h a vast new region for 'exploration. The utilization of this new "space" has required the study of the properties of radio waves al the higher frequencies ?nd the development of methods and instruments of measurement. Recent new discoveries have Indicated, for example, that very-high-frequency radio waves are not limited by the horizon and t h a t they may normally be expected to be transmitted far beyond it. as a result of the properties of the waves and the atmosphere. This f i n d i n g has immediate significance in ihe allocation of channels lo television stations. * * * Example? of this type suggest the M M u i e of baric research--the steady, quiet exploration of the properties of m a t t e r and their painstaking measurement, in order t h a t we may predict its behavior and use M intelligently. They alTM suggest the need fnr mnre work of this basic kind. This is t r u e not only j n new fields--like the higher radio frequencies, nuclear physic?, and temperatures at clnse to absolute, zcrn or up in t h p thousands of 4cgrecf-rbut ako in well- established fields. * * * Thus, mass production, which depends upnn the tntcrchangeability of part?, requires greater find greater precision. For example, precision as high as nne part in 100.00(1 jp now used liv industry. Major advances are being made iii the measurement of l e n g t h by the development of more sensitive instruments and better methods nf measurement, standard is a l a m p containing a p a r t i c u l a r isotope of mercury, obtained by ncu- tion bombardment of gold, whose preen light provides a precision of one part in 100,000,0011 in length measurement?;. The earth itself may sometime in t h e f u t u r e yield its role as the stnndard of time.

The advances of science in such basic fields as measurement and standards will seldom make headlines in the coming years. But this work and the related j-turly of the properties of matter will provide- t h a t foundation which applied science and technology will use to better our material 'nt. and will provide new insights into the nature of the universe. Bennett Cerf Charlie Cnchran. the London producer who first introduced Bea Lillie and G e r t r u d e Lawrence tn American audiences, liked to recall one performance of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" that was performed in Manchester on New Year's Kve. At the end of the first act. the entire cast repaired to a tavern next door lo the theatre and drank toasts until the curtain call came. The actor playing Rosencrantz staggered onstage and began mixing up his lines in frightful fashinon. A scholar in the balcony finally hollered, "Rosencrantz, you're drunker than a goat." Rosencrantz directed a bleary stare at the man who interrupted hjm. and remarked airily, "Right you arc, but if you t h i n k I'm drunk, wait lill .VDU get a look at Guildensternl" * * * Another saloon story concerns ihe bartender who tapped a customer tentatively on the arm and whispered, "Excuse me. mister, but if you are the pale-face runt who looks like a lop-eared rabbit. I'm to tell you your wife got tired of w a i t i n g and drove the car home without you." Georgia's contributions to the theatre include Missy Miriam Hopkins, critic Ward Mnrehousc, and playwright Laurence Stallings. although none of these luminaries came to the mind of a contestant in an Atlantic radio q u i z when she was asked tn name the most important Georgian in the world of drama today. Her unhesitating choice was Anne Nichois, author of that unforgettable picture of the flower of the Old South, "Abie's Irish Rose." Thb is the play that probably shortened Robert Benchley's life by five years and occasioned the lines in Rodgers and Hart's song. "Manhattan." Our f u t u r e babies We'll take to "Abie's Irish Rose"; We hope they live (o see it close. A f t e r the show had been runnins for ahnut three years on Broadway, Miss Nichols began cutting costs by substituting unknown players, friends, and relations nf friends, for hotter known and higher paid members of the cast. It was this practice that caused an irate member nf the audience to come charging up to t h e box- nffice treasurer at the end of the first act one night and declare angrily, "If you folk? are going to keep changing the cast of this here play, confound it. I'm going to stnp coming!'' Questions And Answers Q--Which large city in the United States is directly north of the westernmost point of South America? A--Cleveland, Ohio.

Was Harry r e a l l y interested In her painting? He had not referred to it since their marriage. But then they had been so busy -- and so happy--just lo be together, to talk and plan. Of course she had not expected to go right back to art school. She had intended to gel everything perfectly in order first and running smoothly.
