Olive Roberts Barton They say that motherhood is a profession. I'll say it is. A mother must be everything from a doctor to a psychiatrist, as well as a good dieti- cion, steward and even electrician and plumber. She is father-confessor, judge, jury and hangman, healer and yogi. ' What price mother! Now she is reading. And thank heaven the public 'doesn't whisper about her if she brings up her baby by book. I used to have to hide mine. What Dr. Holt or any of his collc- gues had to say about regular feeding and modified milk I had to keep a secret between myself and. thc covers of the books I read. Today mothers can come right out in the open, book in rahd. It is quite the thing to say, "Dr. Richardson says this," .or "Dr. Bartlett says that," or "Dr. Fish'bein tells us to do so and so.' Quite human to hunt up O'Shea, Sayles or Langdon, or other authors on child health and child understanding. I wonder sometimes if the young mother of today realies that she lives in a truly golden age.

A day or so ago a clerk handed me still another book which must be of decided help to mothers. It seems to fill a certain gap left out of most health books on c|ildren. Doctors can tell us to do certain things but they cannot say "how" because they aren't able to give a whole course in home nursing. This is a field of its own. This book, • "Amateur Nurse," written by Mary Wright Wheeler, tells us how to go about doing things in a sick room for any member of the family, young or old. I believe that every mother with a family would not only be helped but ! relieved to have someting to turn to ' besides herself when she has to nurse member o£ her family. I always keep handy my book on first-aid. Preparedness for Illness Speaking of nursing reminds me the one thing we do not prepare for is illness. We see that we have supplies for the kitchen, laundry, bsd-rooms the whole house. Then when illness along, perhaps in the middle system will soon absorb "practically all deposits irermnent guarantee gives the public equal confidence in p'3,ftrhmercial banks: *W- q»jj e $900,000,000 of postal deposits in 1932 looks like a 5g mm, standing by itself.

Furthermore, the postal savings system has none of the ragteristies or functions of the commercial banking sys- ~JL It does not make loans or finance economic enterprise. |t is, to all intents and purposes, merely a sort of safe deposit No government agency will take the place of banks in ,„« business life of America.

Rubber goods will stand up much longer lhan thejr used to. But even so, hot-water bottles, ice-caps and so on are excellent things for emergencies. It is merely a suggestion, but it seems logical, does it not? The one thing we are not prepared for usually is sickness. There are people who regard such preparation in much Ihe same light as pacifists regard an army. "Get it ready and trouble comes!" they say. I don't believe thai sane preparation ever causes Irouble.

This was especially true in the centra) portions of the cotlon belt. In the western cotton belt field work was resumed on the lighter soils.

Payne was sentenced to life imprisonment in January, 1928 for killing Fred Brandon, a rural letter carrier near Walnut Ridge, but his sent, ence was commuted to 15 years by Governor Parnell in December shortly before he retired from office, making Payne eligible for parole after serving five years. He sought to prevent the escape of the notorious Tom Slaughter 10 years ago when Slaughter shot his way out of prison, killing one prisoner. Slaughter was killed later by a fellow convict who escaped from the penitentiary with him. Former Gov. T. C. McRae rewarded Payne by granting him a furlough, but he was rcarrested and returned 'to the penitentiary by order of former Gov. Tom J. Terral in .1925. He was paroled during the early part of former Gov. John E. Martlneau's administration airti remained at liberty until 1928, when he was convicted of murder for the third time. The board, of which W. N. Trulock of Pine Bluff is chairman, announced that hereafter a corporate surety bond of $100 must accompany each application for parole. Bond is required to guarantee the filing of periodic reports with the board and to cover cost of apprehending parole violators. Heretofore personal bonds have been accepted.
