WANTED WANT' A WONDERFUL Olive Roberts Barton - «!935NEAS£RV)CE.mC. When a puppy is born it is ready to walk; at least a very few days find it staggering about on its wobbly legs. These tiny supports are soft, the bones being mere splints of cartilage. Yet there are no bowlegged dogs unless they are of a bow-legged breed. Why is it then that babies on a diet of mother's milk will occasionally develop legs curved either out or in? If nature takes care of some of her children in this respect, why not all? If a puppy can walk in a few days and grow up straight and perfect why can't a baby always do the same thing? To begin with, the weight of the animal is suported by four legs instead of two. That is one part of the answer. In ..the second place an animal is born with co-ordination of muscle already developed. Also there is little knowledge of balance needed because walking on two legs is a far more difficult affair. i , Wait For Nature In the third place nature provides j different schedules of development for her childreh. But this much is true [also— if .either babies or animals wait until nature says "now .go ahead" there will be little trouble whether it be a week or a year. The bones will have enough mineral content not to bend and walking is accomplished. In these days when cod liver oil is added to the baby's diet to take the place of the sunlight our bodies are too often cheated of, the bones calcify much more quickly than they used to. It is common now to see babies walk at eight or nine months whereas 20 , to make $10 a day ating., a_ "Neighborhood Store" id'ybur name immediately. Brand>?idea. No capital or experience ed.

The mother of such a baby may try to keep him from it, because she has heard so much about the dangers of forcing. She need not worry if she is sure that she has given him the prescribed diet for babies today—namely, cod-liver oil, fruit and vegetable juices and such purees as the doctor recommends and of course the regular amount of milk. Diet takes care of bones. Diet and sunlight. "Pushing" Isn't "Standing" However there is still one danger of bent bones, and that is where a strong baby of a few months begins to push his feet against things as though he were trying to stand up. This effort at exercise is a good thing for him. Let him push all he wants. But do not mistake ^it for a desire to bear all his own weight on his legs. Many parents at this stage take a baby's hands and pull him to his feet, which is a mistake. When he is ready he will pull himself up by holding to the sides of his bed or play-yard. Then being assured that his food has been right, and that he is in good condition, his mother may let him alone—even if he is only eight or nine months old. Of course, a baby stands long before he walks, but the idea of weight is the same.

HOPE, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, APRIL 10, 1933 Here and There -Editorial By Alex. H. Washburn- Attorney General Holds Salary Act of Counties In valid that the.'legislature has been adjourned for nearly a month we arc beginning to get some of the bad news that follows even the best of legislative session^. The county salary-reduction act, Attorney General Norwood tells us, is un- fconsUtutional---thc worst in 40 years. (f. The Futrell administration was successful In consolidating state bureaus and reducing state expenses; but it is comrtpn knowledge that the governor refused to lend his support in the fight lo reduce the cost of local government. The governor contended that he had his hands full managing the state during an emergency. He staked everything on-his state program—and gave particular emphasis to refunding the state's highway debt So the county reduction bill, torn to pieces between a conscientious legislature and powerful lobbies of coun. ty officials, was reduced to "75 local measures," as the attorney general declares—and local measures in the legislature arc unconstitutional. XXX There will be no slate-wide reduction in the expense of county governments without a special session of the 'legislature. There will,be;-no special session of the legislature* Unless the governor's highway bond.refunding law—the Ellis net—fails of its purpose. That may R e organization "W oral Violation of Constitution in 40 Years" IS 75 LOCAL BILLS . Legislature Set Up Classification—But Didn't Follow It LITTLE ROCK— The general county salary act, passed * by the 1933 legislature, is unconstitutional for morc.reas- than applied to any meas- Fe enacted in Arkansas during the past 40 years, Attorney General Hal L. Norwood said Saturday in an opinion given the Arkansas Corporation Commission in response to an inquiry as to whether the commission should follow provisions of the salary act in paying the state's share of the salaries of county assessors. He advised the commission to disregard provisions of the measure, Act 250, which became effective March 29 without the signature of Governor Futrell, and it wus indicated that his advice will be followed by the commission. The attorney general said Section 1 of the act set up a proper basis for u valid general county salary law, but that the provisions of the measure did not follow that formula, which, 'he said, appeared to be merely a "garb" to disguise, tho sections relat- ' compensation of ^ county of- equivalent of 75 special acts embodied In one and that there sjre many other reasons why it is .Unconstitutional. The opinion contained no reference to the provision abolishing publication of the delinquent land list, and when asked about this point the attorney general said that question was not 'involved In the inquiry from the Corporation Commission. The section relating to publication " delinquent lists provides that the rks shall keep such lists in n bound volume, which shall be open to inspection by the public at all times, and that there shall be published in each county once weekly for two weeks betwe'en tho second Monday in May and the second Monday in June a notice that the land described in the delinquent tax book will be sold on the second Monday in June. The attorney general's opinion follows: Inescapable Conclusion "I regret to be forced to the con. elusion that the act is unconstitutional. It is with great reluctance that I advise you to disregard the provisions of this county salary act, but the Supreme Court has held that: " 'Officers of tho executive department are not bound lo execute a legislative act which, in their judgment, is repugnant to the constitution. Their primary allegiance is due to the constitution; and if there be a conflict between the two, the constitution is the higher law, or, rather, the sup- C.sed law is not a law ut all, being ill and void." The constitution provides that: . " 'The General Assembly shall not pass any local or special act.' "The Supreme Court has said: " 'Counties may be properly classified for the purpose of fixing the salaries of county officers according to population, wealth, and other things which are calculated to furnish a reasonable basis for the classification so that as nearly as possible officers will be compensated according to the amount of work done.' Disregarded Kule " 'Act No. 250 would have been valid if the General Assembly had followed the rule laid down by the Supreme Court, but "courts will not permit the constitution to be evaded by dressing up special laws in the garb and guise of general statutes; and the court has said that 'whether an act is genetjil or special must be determin- (Continued on page three) Screams and Shot Produce Mystery Near Second and -Hervey Sts.

A year ago-this spring, as Senator L. L. Mitchell, told a H6p3 civic club recently, the legislature passed a bond refunding bill. But the bondholders wouldn't exchange old bonds for new.

The Associated Press, great mutual organization owned and operaicd solely by Newspapers, to which newspapers are elected like a club member, and to which they pay assessments or "dues," furnishes radio stations with a brief idea of the news of the day. The-radio stations have no news or. ganization of their own. There is no news organization in America except those that newsappers own and op- crate between themselves. ' Every once in a while a radio station forgets that—as happened in Sioux Falls, D. -S. The radio station started reading;the morning" newspa* pi*'over'Ine^aTrr^aturdar-nlght th'g Associated Press stopped it. The radio station, you see, hadn't been "elected." Tho club members found their guest was phoney—and threw him out. XXX At Decalur, Ala., Sunday a jury for the second time returned a verdict of guilty in the Scottsboro negro attack case. The evidence, concerning the alleged attack of nine negroes on two white women in a railroad box car, assumed a slightly different tone at the second trial. Ruby Bates, one of the women .testified that she lied. She said she first testified the negroes attacked her because she was told to say that by the other woman, Mrs. Victoria Price. Other testimony purported to show that the women had affairs with two wiilte men, and became involved when a fight between negroes and white men broke out in the box car. All this is sordid reading. The imported counsel for the defense, Samuel S. Leibowitz, of the International Labor Defense, New York, mado a btiter attack on Southern justice. Many men in the North could tell Mr. Leibowitz he hasn't helped the Scottsboro negroes by trying a life- and-death case on the issue of racial intolerance. Many Northerners could tell the International Labor Defense that they will never stop losing cases, what- the law or the evidence until they learn to stop sending the Mr. Leibowitzes out of New York with a superior moral righteousness into the rural South, where white men and negroes ordinarily live and work peaceably together. Southern law, Southern evidence, obviously required Southern counsel. The Scottsboro case is not yet finished. The South, with complete evidence before it, will write the final verdict with more sympathy and justice than any other section could. ASKS HOALS Mrs. J. F.

Agriculture)—A firmer tone prevailed in the cotton market during the past week with quotations April 7th about 25 'points higher than those of March 31.

J nn j " Hempstead Will Make No Further Try for Chapman Union County Has Equal Claim on Him, Says Circuit Judge Bush LOST HIS GOOD SUIT Chapman Declares Crawford Co. Officers "Big- Boved"HimOutoflt Hempstead, county will not Attempt to gain custody of Charles Chapman, charged with the $24,000 robbery of the First National Bank here, until he has been tried- in Union county for robbery of the Bank of Smackover, Circuit Judge Dexter Bush said in a statement over the weekend. * ' The judge's .statement followed the removal of Chapman from Crawford to Union county by Sheriff A, D. Maxey who captured him near Van Buren. "No Ransom" Said Judge , "Union county has as much right to try. Chapman as we have," the judge declared. "Tha£ wasn't the question with us. Our '.argument was in re-' gards to Sheriff Maxey holding*him for ransom. I think'the sheriff'cov- ered a lot of territory when he issued a statement that any court that tried Chapman would be'forced to pay for him." ''If Crawford county had wanted to try Chapman, that would, have been a different matter," Judge Bush continued. "Our, only interest in the matter was to see that Chapman was, tried for the crime he is alleged to hav* committed .and .not merely held indefinitely while' a baFgiin & him was being made." Williams Case Set Despite Hempstead county's loss of the custody of Chapman, the case of Charley Willims, his alleged companion in the bank raid, has been set for Tuesday in Hempstead circuit court at Washington, Judge Bush said. Chapman, clad in a pair of overalls, sat in a jail cell at El Dorado Sunday and declared that stories printed about his career were "a lot of hooey." He entered'a general denial to charges against him. Laughing he said "I guess I am what you would call a victim of circumstances." Lost His Good Suit Asked why he was dressed in overalls, Chapman said that > Crawford county officers "big-boyed" him out of his "good suit" Asked why he hopped from an. automobile to escape officers when he was captured, Chapman said—"I was with two innocent kids. They didn't know -who I was, and they were driving me across the country. I knew I was wanted and figured that deputies chasing us might start shooting. So I told the kids to stop, let me out, and then beat it. "The deputies started shooting at me, and I ran. I jumpsd into a hole, and 1 could have nailed at least a couple of them if I had wanted to. I shot several times either at the ground or high above their heads. I know how to shoot a six-shooter, and if I hand wanted to hit them—they would have been hit. "It's a darn, lucky thing I wasn't killed. I thought I was a goner when that last bullet hit me in the back—I far exceeds the supply, he says. About j jj u j one-fourth of the sales closed by Mr. ne Smith thus far this year have been for all-cash. Most of his sales are to homeseekers. The back to the farm movement is still growing, he said. In recent weeks many investors have sought to buy farms, one of the most noticeable features of the recent turn in business conditions. Among recent sales are the following: . 125 acres in Nevada county to John Kooistra, formerly of DeQueen, and McAllen, Texas, who occupies his farm as a home, except for a short visit to his native Holland. thought I was as good as dead," 120 acres east of Hope, to Thompson Evans, local agent for the American Express Co., purchased as an investment. A farm of 445 acres in Sevier county, bought by W. B. Goyne, of Kilgore, Texas. An SO.acre farm in Hempstead county, bought by J. R. Bennet, of Naples, Texas. Mr. Bennett will move to the farm this week. A Nevada county farm of 133 acres, bought by T. J. Rodden, for many years a tenant farmer of the Centerville community. Mr. Hodden has already made improvements on the place. Many farmers throughout Hempstead and Nevada counties, in particular, are making improvements in the appearance of their homes and buildings, Mr. Smith said. This is the first season in several years when widespread improvements were noted, he said. Harriman Brought to Court in Chair New Yorker Banker, ir.
