THIRTY YEARS AGO Married: At .Texarkana Wednesday, February 26, Dr. J. W. Robson and Miss Gora Cooper, both of this city.

TEN YEARS AO -t * Where Crime Is Bred "ft* \* i t of the commonest American beliefs is that most crim- ^ r , inals are mentally defective, and that the crime wave ('Would ebb to a ripple if only some way could be found of putt- fating a serviceable mind into the head of each crook. *T t Now, however, Dr. Amos T. Baker, psychiatrist at Sing pjpx prison, comes along to tell Us that we're mistaken. Ad- fressing; a session of the American Orthopsychiatric Asso- Ciation in Baltimors the other day, he declared that the men- ^fality of most criminals compares favorably with that of law- Iding citizens. <£ Bloat criminals, he said, go wrong because of unfavorable Jjtame conditions and not because they are mentally deficient. 'Heredity has little to do with filling prisons. Environment is all-important. ' It would be more pleasant, possibly, to stick to the older idea and blame it all on heredity. That would relieve us of -all responsibility. But we can't do it, and Dr. Baker's remarks ought to make us stop and do a bit of thinking. That expression, "unfavorable home conditions," can cover a whole lot of ground—and society as a whole has a direct responsibility in it. It covers, for example, homes in city slums, where health cndildons are bad, food is poor and the street is a child's only playground.: - - It covers homes in certain mining towns, where th'e workers are ground down by poverty, live in conditions of sickening squalor and count themselves lucky if they can just jjei enough to eat from day to day. It covers homes in rotten tenements which, if we had any social conscience at all, would be torn down no matter what the cost; homes on isolated back-country farms where a child f can grow up without any advantages whatsoever; homes in " dull factory towns where a mill-owner is absolute czar over HU his workers—homes everywhere, in short, that belong in ' WbatUKaocioJegjsMf call the "under-privileged" stratum. fnat in where our crime stems from. As long as society it willing to let a large number of human beings live in such Homes ft will have a nasty "crime problem." We all share in the responsibility.

Fashion Decrees tied, White, Blue Jewelry to Honor George Washington Bicentennial Also Correct CHICAGQ-r(/P)—Stronger Uian ever fashion decrees red, white and blue in the smart feminine spring costumes. .But -for t he f woman who does not wish to 30 in too decidedly for the tri-colpr 'combination in her dresses •414 suits themselves she can add the patriotic -.dash with accessories. i With-a dark blue suit—and dark Blue IsTilgh fashion—she can wear'an ascot scarf, either in solid flag red or with red and blue polka dots' or stripes, and carry a solid red underarm bag in the new shiny leather. Or her dark bluecoat, dress or suit, she can add a boutonniere of forget- me-nots, corn flowers or some convention posey in red, white and blue. There are blue leather roses and gardenias on display. She can add-a bright red belt to a dark blue crepe dress which may have white collar and cuffs, or perhaps a bolero jacket and a white blouse. All the major department stores are showing a wide selection of neckwear with patriotic colors and designs. At the pewelry counters there are necklaces, clips, bracelets and pins with which to honor the George Washingtonbicentennial. A chic combination is three of the new solod colored bracelets in red, white and blue. If the wearer likes silver jewelry there are copies of articles made by Paul Revere and other silversmiths of the Colonial and Revolutionary periods. Very smart items at the handkerchief counters, were kerchiefs with extra large size initials in red or white. • All these accessories come in solid colors, two and three color combinations. Thus they can be ustd as accents for black, white or other colored costumes as well as for one carrying out the tri-colored idea. But for the moment nearly every woman will probably want to go patriotic with abandon and for her there are: Crepe belts and matching bags of red background studded with white stars; red, white and blue striped scarfs, American flag clips, strands of red, white and blue beads, handkerchiefs picturing George Washington.

Wt^M^Wp *r« th« tat tm w» h*v» fejjfei -ywsi" *•* tod«o Shelter Necessary -L. iii. ? »i4--. - .. " _ The Cold Rains in Winter Cauic Milk Flow to Be Decreased Much has been asald about the "year rqun'd" pasture season in Arkansas, and there Is a possibility of mlsundef* standing the winter conditions here Ih consequence, states W. H. Woodley, Extension dairyman, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. It Is true that this state does not have the zero weather, the snow, and the number of successively'cold days thai are found in the states far* (her north, and it is also true that, the cows do not need the expensively built burns that are necessary in these colder, states. However, when the shelter is needed by the Arkansas cow, It is .iceded Just as' much as by the cow In the tat north. The cold rains of fall and winter In Arkansas are more trying t othe dairy cow than the dry cold of zero weather. On damp or wet days of the season, shelter will pay well in saving feed or keeping up the milk flow. All of the body processes are slowed down When the body is cold, so that feed which should be used in making milk or in bringing about body growth must be used to keep the. body warm, unless shelter Is provided. Arkansas .may not have quite as many days when shelter is needed as some of the norther states, but on those days when it is needed, the demand is just as great as the results of shelter,Just as important as any northern state.
