Beer Industry Acis In AggressiVG Manner I The old axiom, "A new broom sweeps clean," is proving lo be loo true for the benefit of certain "beer dispensers" iii Arkansas. The association of tlie United Brewers and Arkansas liccr Distributors; formed February 1, in Little Hock, lias, in less Hum lour weeks of functioning, brought about the revocation of I'd retail beer permits iii.the sUle. 'Two.-of tiies'e are in Uie Flouclwny district;of Mississippi county. Other local and state revocations will follow unless tlie venders declllc to "clean «!>•" All.of this is the outgrowth of the United Brewers iwlibhnl association, formed for the coiitrol of the beer in- eiustry. it is their intention to make a concerted effort lo "drive out the 'hon- ky-ioiiks' and 'dives' " which are bringing criticism lo the industry. Arkansas is tli'e tenth slate to form such ah orgaimalion. The slate director, working in close cooperation with slate officers, is aUemnling a Herculean task. '" 'It is a step forward for Arkansas. May this work continue with the wholehearted support of all law enforcement officers. h Finicnid a Good Risk? There seeths to be some difference . of opinion as to how good H loan risk * Finland is at the monienl. ... Practically everyone concedes Uial any money lent to the ..stalwart little republic will be repaid—if Finland wins its war with Russia. II" it doesn't, there won't be any Finland, and Russia-is-not likely to assume arty obligations undertaken by the Finns. So the question tlie United States government and private bankers are trying to> answer now is, .simply, "Will Finland win the war?" Jesse H. Jones, federal loan administrator, believes Finland is a good risk, but liven he is willing to concede that the question must be re-appraised from day. to day. New York bankers, realists in llic world of finance, declare flatly that not only would a loan to Finland be a very shaky venture, hut that loans to any of the Scandinavian countries could scarcely be considered in terms of a sound banking investment under present circumstances. Mr. Jones appeared before the House Banking and Currency commitlee recently to support the Finnish Aid bill, which would, authorize extension ol' Joans from'' ?i66,Obo,'boO to ?200,000,000 for the Export-Import bank. Primary objective of the bill is to grant Finland an additional loan of $20,000,000 with a similar sum earmarked for China; A $10,600,000 credit was advanced to Finland in December. Mr. Jones said he felt tlie Finns would be victorious, lie asked members of the House committee to bear in mind that the Finns had an almost unique reputation among tuitions of the world for paying their bill. He felt that Finland would be a goorl risk "ns long as she is still lighting in the field with it good chance to win." Later, he admitted that he could not say whether Finland would 'get an ad- tiohal $20,000,000 if it is authorised, because, "to a substantial extent," the loan would depend on Finland's record in battle. New York bankers meanwhile turned thumbs down on any Scaiidinnvinn loan. Informally, they have indicated they would not risk depositors' funds in a defense undertaking; as precarious as that which all of Scandinavia faces. Financial help, they said, linisl come from the United States government and from private individuals, sympathetic with the democratic cause. Rankers cannot be blamed for wanting lo protect the money entrusted to their care. Neither can the government be blamed for wantiilg to help a valiant democracy, nor can private citizens be censured for contributing to the cause. The iiiiporlant thing lo remember is that funds sent to help the Finns may become donations, not because Finland won't repay, but because there may be no Finland. Loans, if they are made, must be made in this spirit. People must remember that it will be a gamble—a very important gamble to the world. They will be betting oh democracy against dictatorship.

Slip would nol run the risk of meeting Ih'e young man on the street. He'd never get the chance to laugh at her again, or snub her. She got into the thin bed and cried herself to sleep. She dared not leave her room on Sunday. She might run into the young mail and he'd think she had tracked him down. She worked up quite a hale toward tlie young man before evening'. She was in low spirits Monday morning. She had followed her one Hide ray of light and it had led her to the most humiliating experience of hoi- life. Ann disciplined herself while eating breakfast.

And, people being what they arc, can never be unanimous in. thought. Britons, no more than Germans, can be expected to agree with • every government war policy. Many of them, perhaps, don't agree thai there should even be a war. But it isn't discreet to sriy so but loud. Hence, the diaries. It would be. interesting to open all those diaries after the war lo learn what people wore really thinking. How much hating did they do, arid' how niai'iy sacrifices did they make and how much sorrow did they suffer? These arc things one GUI' I learn easily from statistics. Only the people themselves, and lo some extent, Uie diaries, hold the answer. Whether you like the government they have in Finland or whether you don't like that, government, it Is certainly not for you to decide. —Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, addressing American Youth Congress in Washington.

Ann flared, "You needn't take wl tone. How and where I mec' ly friends is no concern 6: ours." "II seemed to be more or )esi iy concern Saturday night." "I'm sure you have the intelli- euce to recognize a mistake whei ou see one." Sarcasm edged her one. "If you had any tact you youldn't cmbarass me by refcr- ing to it." "I guess a girl with your nerve an get along all right." Ann was furiously angry. "I "What's your name?" the girl asked. "Ann Brown." She bit her 1111- ler lip. Angry fears threatened, lie makes me—so—mad," she nuttered. "Of all (he conceited, pig-headed, insulting—" "Gee, kid—don't get sore. What's it all about?" Ann told briefly of her meeting with Iho slock man. "He was wearing a whito gardenia in his apel—how did I know that half the men in Chicago were wearing [ardeiiias?" she asked. The 10-cenl store girl giggled and, afler a moment, Ann's face cleared. "I don't see what's so funny about it," she grumbled. "Imagine it happening lo Paul," the girl giggled. "H's simply a sc-roam. All tlie girls are cra/.y abovit him and he shows 'era the deadpan. Girl-shy—that's his trouble. Then you come along and collar him in the public library— Oh, it's a sc-ream."

"And if I did wish to start a flirtation you would be the last icrson in the world whom I'd choose." She drew a long, wralh- ?ul breath. "All right," he said good na- turcdly. "Shall we skip it?" "Gladly." The girl behind the counter was islcning, round eyed. Ann turned :o her. "I'm afraid I can't stay today," she said holly. "This person might feel that 1 was pursuing looking thing?" "Not to me, he isn't. The thing that makes me so furious is that he thinks I'm cheap. He didn't believe a word I said about it being a mistake Saturday night. He thinks I trailed him in here." "Don't be burned up, Ann. He loesn't think so now. You cooled dm good." She changed the sub- ect.

Her feathers were stilt •uflled by the second encounter vith Paul Hayden. "Don't mind me," he put in amiably. "I'm on my way back to the stock room where 1 belong.' * * * '"PHE girl, obviously curious, in•*• sisted. "Don't be silly," shi Said. "I want to talk to you abou something." She joined Ann in the aisle. The young man, with out a backward glance,. Irundlet his truck toward the back of lh< store. The girls found a booth ii the cafe and sat down. "Look," Clara began. "Mv -oommatc got married last Saturday. She and Jim marie up their lilnds all of a sudden and it sorls eaves me on a limb. I got a nice iii Do joint but it costs too much Tor me lo keep alone. I jiisl thought maybe you'd like to come in with me if you ain't fixed too good." Ann decided on the instant. "That's funny, Clara," she said. "I came in lo ask you about a place. I want lo move—I'm going lo move." . Her brow darkened again. If Paul Hayden ever learned lhaf she had been snooping at him from her window he'd have another ycoi'C against her.

If unconsciousness aller a blow on the lierul lasts more than live minutes, there is usually serious damnsjc lo the brain itself or else there is hemorrhage lo the large blood vessels. In concussion, however, such damage h:i:; nol occurred. There has been home difficulty in explaining Ihc rise in pressure uithin the skill). It has been suggested. for example, Hint (he skull is Indented by the blow and thai the volume of space insido the skull Is thus reduced. However .his does not seem lo be a satisfactory explanation because usually the indentation is stnali. i * v \Viicn a pri/c fighter is knockcc out in the ring, the punch is »su ally applied to a point on the lo\vc jnw.

The ex pcrUs tav enot been able to <!cter mine with any certainly just wh the blow ou Ihc chin is more hkcl to produce a knockout than elsewhere on the head. In general, invcstigalors are inclined lo believe that following a blow on (lie head there is a very short |:criod in which the bloo;t vessels in the head conlraet to such an extent that the supply of blood to the brain is considerably reduced. This produces a condition called crcforal anemia, which uierrly leans a lack of blood in the brain.
