Postal Savings System Not a Banking System fr ( ^-^^^- " 'CE 1929 there has been a marked increase in tho gov- ent's postal savings business. The total deposits, ac- to a statement given out by Assistant Postmaster Heath, have been as follows: J930 . „_ - - 170,152,040 1931 - - - - -' 31.3,774,607 1932 _~ " ....,„„:-. -~ 900,238,726 .-., , These postal savings deposits are guaranteed by the Sfi j&Vernment.

He asks in a letter to the Commercial Appeal why the government can not Olive Roberts Barton -, «I9K NEA SERVICE.HIC. They say that motherhood is a pro- Cession. I'll say it is. A mother must 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 colle- gues had to say about regular feeding and modified milk I had to keep a secret between myself and the covers of the books I read. Today mothers can come right out in the open, book in rand. It is quite th'e thing to say, "Dr. Richardson says this," .or "Dr. Bartlett says that," or ; Dr. Fishbein 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. Ari Aid to Home Nursing She not only had the advantage of what professional knowledge she seeks in books, Hpt the added advantage of liberty as far as public opinion is concerned, to avail herself freely of what she can find. A day or so ago a clerk handed me still another book which must be of decided help lo mothers. It seems to fill a certain gap left out of most health books on children. Doctors can tell us to do certain things but Ihey cannot say ".'-iuv/' because they aren't able to give a whole course in home nursing. This is a field of its own. This book, "Amateur Nurse," w"l- ten by Mary Wright Wheeler, tells us how to go about doing things in a sick room for any member of the family, yourtg or old. I believe that every mother with a family would not only be helped but relieved to have someting to lurn lo besides herself when she has to nurse member of her family. I always keep handy my book on first-aid. Preparedness for Illness Speaking of nursing reminds me: the one Ihing we do nol prepare for is illness. We see lhat we have supplies for the kitchen, laundry, bed-rooms, the whole house. Then when illness comes along, perhaps in the middle L BRffUCHER Knee Track Law Recent record receipts at Hialcah race track, Florida, can be used well to show how other states would profit. The total bet on horse.races during 45 days was ?8,038,643. Florida, taking 3 per cent, got $'241,159;29: In 'addition the state took $50,758.27 in taxes on admissions and 516,614 in occupational taxes on employes, making the total state profit $308,531. Not Much In Ohio Among the numerous bills Ohio was considering was one by Senator Emmons which provided that the track could take 12 l £ per cent of the money : wagered, the state taking 10 per cent of the track's profit. With a'meeting like that at Hialeah, the track would take $1,004,330. The state's 10 per cent of this would be 5100,433. A diferent story from that in Florida. About Maryland Maryland has the stiffest law in the United States. With a meeting like Florida's the slate would take $6000 a day for each of the 45 days, totaling $270.000.

Enam- The $900,000,000 of postal deposits in 1932 looks like a sum, standing by itself. But it 'was less than one twenty- of all the savings and other time deposits in all the and trust'companies of the country, and about one- i of all time and demand deposits taken together. For the government to assume a contingent liability for safety of $50,000,000,000 of deposits scattered through e than 20,000 institutions in all parts of the country would be a wholly different proposition from its undertaking tQ repay less than $1,000,000.000 deposited in its own f- postoff ices and re-deposited with banks only when they in ' t up government bonds for the protection of these (Here we see why the postal savings system can never "practically all deposits.") * furthermore, the postdi savings system has none of the r$eteristiC8 or functions-of the commercial banking sys- > I£ does not make loans or finance economic enterprise. i», to all intents and purposes, merely a sort of safe deposit ilt. No government agency will take the place of banks in „,'business life of America. But the security offered by the ?" postal savings system may have its beneficial reaction in the f " adjustment of the banking system which is now under way. fthbut embarking on the precarious undertaking of putting f guarantee behind all bank deposits, the government can anoshould undertake to demand and enforce safer and sound& practices by ^U the banks of the country.— Arkansas Ga' and glass 7 ware will not deteriorate. Rubber goods will stand up much longer than they, used to. But even so, hot-water botlles, ice-caps and so on are excellent things for emergencies. It is merely a suggestion, bul ii seems logical, docs it nol'.' The one thing we are not prepared for usually is sickness. There are people who regard such preparation in much the same light as pacifists regard an army "Get it ready and trouble comes!" they say. I don'l believe lhat sane preparation ever causes trouble. At. any rate it is sheer improvidence not to provide for sickness.

Rudy Vallee and His Wife to Ask Divorce More U. S. Cotton Bought by World 8 Million Bales' Total, Larger Than Year or Two Years Ago MEMPHIS-(U. S. Dcpt. Agriculture)—The past week in the cotton market was n quiet one with price changes narrow. Quotations on March 31 were about 12 points lower than those March 24. Demand for spot co-t ton both in the domestic and foreign markets was stated as very moderate with buyers interested only in purchasing raw cotton for their immediate requirements. According to the Weather Bureuu for the week ending March 28, while rainfall was mostly Jight to moderate, it was sufficient in conjunction with previous rains to keep the top soil in n saturated condition and too wet for proper working over large areas. This was especially true in the central portions of the cotton bell. In the western cotton belt field work was resumed on the lighter soils. Planting advanced in southern Texas and there wore scattered reports of seeding in some cast Gulf localities. According to the New York Cotton Exchange Service, world consumption of American cotton during the first seven months of this season amounted to 8,000.000 bales, compared with 7,200,000 last season and 6,300,000 for the season before last for the corresponding seven months. Exports to Japan and China to Mnrch 31 of this season 'amounted to about 1,500,000 bales less than for the same period -last year. Exports to Great Britain and Germany for the same period were somewhat larger than n year ago and those to France about double. Total exports to March 31 amounted to about 6,100,000 bales against about 6,900,000 a year ogo. Average price middling as compiled from the quotations of the ten markets March 31 6.1Gc compared with 6.24c March 24 and 5.92c a year ago. Reported sales of spot cotton by the ten markets for the past week were mod- crate, amounting to 40,365 bales compared with 42,907 last week and 51,062 for the like week the year before.

To Require Surety Bond for Parole Parole Board Announces New Policy After Releasing 12 BULLETIN LITTLE ROCK — (/p) — firttty Majors, sentenced to nin* years Imprisonment from JtWefjott county In 1930 for kidnaping L. W. Quattlebnum, wealthy planter, wits among four prisoners paroled Thursday, which brought the total paroled since the board convened Wednesday to 16. LITTLE ROCK—Sam Payne, former Lawrence county constable, serving his third sentence for murder, was among a dozen prisoners paroled Wednesday by the state Penal Board. Payne was sentenced to life 1m- 'prisonment in January, 1928 for killing Fred Brandon, a rural letter carrier near Walnut Ridge, but his sentence 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 rearrested 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. Martineau's administration any 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.
