SANTA GLAUS and COMPANY ws Misbehaving Drunks Must Face the Music I T is a poor week that does not see some judge in this broac . land of ours getting his name in the papers by handing down an unusual decision. This week the distinction seems tc the jurist in Cambridge, Mass., who ruled that a drunkei driver whose car killed two people could not be held for man slaughter because he had been too drunk to know what he •Was doing, ffl The judge's reasoning is perfectly clear, once you ex amine it. A charge of manslaughter, he explained; must be basec qn "willful, wanton, and reckless" conduct. At the time of the accident the driver in question was drunk—and not jusi drunk, but awfully drunk. Consequently, said the judge he was "not in a position to form a judgment or exercfse his •will*.'; hence he could not be willful, wanton, or reckless in his conduct, and so the manslaughter charge fell through. It must be added that the judge did see his way clear to send the man to jail for six months and finehim $200 on a series of drunken-driving charges. * * * get all sorts on the bench, in our somewhat untamed democracy, and we have to take the bitter with the sweet. And while there is little danger that any other judges will folio wthe reasoning of this Massachusetts jurist, his decision needs to be picked to pieces for the benefit of the casual drinkers who feel that deing drunk relieves a man of a measure of resonsibility for his acts. '• Those people aren't quite as much a nuisance now as they were during prohibition, when it was considered smart to get awry-eyed. But there are still plenty of them. They evolved the custom of morningafter apologies to the'hostess. A guest might have committed any of any infinite variety of misdemeanors, ranging from poking his hostess under the fifth rib with extended forefinger to up-' setting a corrosive highball into the innards of her 'grand piano; heblithely assumed that if he simply begged.pardon next day, explaining that he had had one too many when it happened, all would be well. * * * W HAT gets overlooked in this sort of argument, of course, is , the inescapable fact that although a man may not be responsible for what he does while drunk, he is most certainly responsible for getting drunk in the first place. No one holds a gun at his head and makes'him drink. If, having drunk, he can't behave, he ought to take the resonsibility. Which gets us back to the Massachusetts judge. What he says about willful, wanton, and reckless conduct may be quite true. Yet it should hardly take the learning of a judge to see that a man who, about to drive an auto, takes a large quantity of alcohol into-his system, is by that very fact guilty of willful, wanton, and reckless conduct—whether he subsequently runs over anybody or not. /THAIS JUST A £ flgMVKffbufcej/i I L With the County Agent Clifford L. Smith FARM AGENT _1 Home Meat Supply Tlu* use of a few acres to produce tho family's homo meat supply will ijive s\ very high return when compares with cash returns from ordinary crops. One brood sow can be maintained very cheaply on the average farm, the county agent said, because it will consume certain feed that otherwise would be wasted. There is also possible a rotation of grazing and feed crops in the hog lots that will make 'or cheap growth of two litters of pigs irom one sow during the year. The farm family is the farm's best market for four or five of these pigs when finished. Through proper cutting and curing methods, as much as 5 cents per pound on foot above the regular market price can bo obtained n this manner, pointed out M. W. Wuldrow. extension animal husbandman. University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Farm families need other meats bo- ide pork, Mr. Muldrow said, and again there is another opportunity to ;et a high income per acre from a few icres. Grazing experiments con- lucted by the University of Arkan,ns College of Agriculture show that when a full grazing season on one ere of pasture is provided that 300 o 400 pounds of beef per acre can be produced. A yearling carried through he slimmer on such pastures with milk cows or n beef cow with her versily of Arkansas College of Agriculture. The fresh, succulent growth provided by small-grain winter pastures is very beneficial in wintering dairy cows, Mr. Gregg said. Winter pastures providek cheap feed to supplement stored roughage and grains, and their succulence stimulates milk production and tones up the body functions to improve the health and vigor of tho cow. arly spring calf will jeef. produce this . Britain Bluffing? N EWSPAPER readers might be justified in taking with a grain of salt—or possibly a whole handful—the stirring- declaration in London that Britain is prepared to take "rig-- orous" action to protect her rights in Shanghai if they are infringed upon by the Japanese. What provoked this declaration, of course, was the Japanese threat to seize control of the entire city, including the international concessions. That Britain has an enormous financial and commercial stake in Shanghai is beyond question. But somehow, the British government in late years has .seemed incapable of taking rigorous action in any international crisis. There was high talk of rigorous action when Mussolini seized Ethiopia, for instance. There was still more, when submarines sank British ships during the Spanish civil war. But when the dust cleared away, Britain was taking it and liking it. Is there any especial reason for thinking it will be any different in China? Dairy Cows Dairy cows should be allowed to raze small grain winter pastures as requently as possible during the wint- r months, but don't overgraze them. Crazing too close, too early, or heavy ramping in wet weather may reduce ve pasture yield. Grazing too many ours in one day with long periods etween grazing days may reduce the rtectiveness of the available pasture creage to the dairy cow. Grazing for a half hour or an hour very clay, twice a week or once a eek as. far as weather and growth ill permit, is 'much better for the dairy cow than grazmf all day at less frequent intervals. This system of grazing will increase the value of winter grass for the cows, advises V. L. Gregg, extension dairyman, Uni- Fovcst Planting Forest planting can be dono any time when growth is not taking place, which is usually between the time the hnrci- wood leaves fall in autumn and when they appear in the spring. Fortunately, this period comes when other farm work is not pressing. When there is danger of freezing, it s often best to plant during the latter part of February or early March, Says M. H. Bruner, Exteasion Forester. University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Planting subject to alternate freezing and thawing during the planting period arc often badly injured by heaving. ; Frost heav.il, Mr. Bruner said, is usually more injurious on southern and eastern slopes than on northern or western exposures and on exposed soils. Freezing alone seldom causes any damage; it is tho alternate freezing and thawing that tends to heave or loosen the planted seedlings, preventing them from getting well established during the first season. Farmers should plan to put some of ;heir idle acres to work growing trees or pulpwood, sawlogs, or other forest 'product!;. Mr. Gruner said. Boys should take an active part, and thereby be taught that the trees they plant will help provide them with an income in years to come. terforing with thorn.
