An "Impossible" Cure For Business Cycles TF you sit back and look at the autumn of 1937 through hnlf- J. closed eyes, you are apt to get the haunting and melancholy imprsesion that you have seen the whole show before. There was a busy summer, with bumper crops and plenty of jobs: there was a stockmarket smashup, with soothsayers oi high and low degree hastening to announce that falling security prices didn't really mean anything; then came a sharp business recession, layoffs in the factories, demands for farm relief at Washington, and solemn promiscvS from the government that the decline would not be permitted to become serious . .. surely, you saw all of that before, somewhere ? To be sure: in 1929. How it all comes back to one! How familiar it all is—and how ominous the parallel begins to look. when one remembers what 1929 led up to. * * * S O the country approaches the end of the year in a state of anxious expectancy, wondering whether the old business cycle is going to have its way under new deal as under old. Are we. after all. helpless ? Is there nothing we can do but take it, decade after decade. As of today there doesn't seem to be much reason for optimism. And yet—well, somehow, it is a little comforting to notice a quotation from a letter written by Andrew Carnegie in 1905. This question, reprinted in the Industrial Bulletin circulated by Arthur D. Little, Inc., of Cambridge, Mass., goes as follows: "We are greatly pleased with our new Winton. From the very start it has dones its work and never failed us. There may be improvements yet to come even in such autos. but it is difficult to see much room for them." Mr. Carnegie wrote that away back in the pleistocene age of automotive development. The motorist then started his engine with the crank, straining his back and risking a fractured wrist. He did not dream of driving in winter; with his inefficient brakes his car was apt enough to skid on dry pavement, and besides there was no way of cleaning snow or ice off the windshield. A cross-country drive of a hundred miles was a miracle if it did not include at least one breakdown and two flat tires. Forty miles an hour was a dizzy speed indeed, and a car even moderately comfortable or controlable in the rain was unheard of. " - * * -K ' Y ET Andrew Carnegie, who could peer as far ahead into the industrial age as the next man, could not conceive that the car of 1905 could ever be improved materially. What has that to do with the business cycle, depressions, and so on? Nothing, perhaps; but it does indicate that we make the most amazing and unexpected kind of progress, and .that the very best effort of one generation is utterly outclassed by the next. Getting control of the business cvcle should not be more of ajob than improving the auto of 19Q5 into the auto of 1937. The brains that did the one job are most certain equal to the other.

Must Play 6 Games LITTLE ROCK—t/Pv-Members of the Arkansas high school athletic con- 'erence Saturday voted to increase the number of conference games a team must play to win the football cham- lionship from five to six. Regulations were altered to permit my school in the state in good landing with the Arkansas Athletic Association, to become a conference member. The applying school, if approved by majority of the conference members, vculd be placed on probation for a •ear before being admitted. The conference accepted an invita- ion from Little Rock high school to lold its first tract meet in the high chool stadium at Little Rock late in April. Pine Bluff was officially awarded authority of an attorney general's opinion and Supreme Court decisions. While seeking to solve the financial tangle officials are eyeing more than S41.000.000 of "earmarked" funds in the slate treasury, but these can not be used to pay general fund warrants. The legislature which adjourned last May appropriated more than 512,000.000, exclusive of the old age pension and othc other special funds, to be paid from the general fund during the biennium which started last July 1. It enacted n two per cent service tax which it expected to yield much of the revenue. The treasurer estimates that only .$8,500,000 will be received to meet these general fund appropriations. the conference football championship. The executive committee was instructed to purchase a trophy for the Zebras. J. A. Larson, principal of Little Rock high school, urged that golf, tennis and water sports be included in the conference athletic program. Members said they would attempt to work out such a program for consideration at the spring meeting, Vocation Teachers in District Meet Next Conference Scheduled February 12 at Experiment' Station A district coufVreiK'c? for tho instructors of Vocational Agriculture of .southwest Arkansas was held Saturday at Hope High School.

For the sad fact about the fine music which the ordinary orchestra produces is simply this: the general nublic, considered as a whole, simply doesn't hear it. The halls in which it is performed are too small, for one thing; worse yet. "society" has managed to put an aura of top hats and evening gowns about symphony music, and the man in the street is made to feel that he isn't particularly wanted on the premises. So the orchestras play to a relatively small stratum of the population. The NBC orchestra will be different. It will exist solely to send the best music into the home of every citizen who cures to turn on his radio. Good music is about to hunt up its public, instead of letting Che public hunt it. The result should be epoch-making. 6y OREN ARNOLD, Copyright 1937, NEA Sarvice, By OK. MORK1S F1SHBEIN Editor, Jovrnal o| the American Medical Association, ind at , the Health Magazine. Early Stage of Syphilis Infection Is Time to Fight Locomotor Ataxia This is the fourth in a series in which Dr. Fishbein discusses cause, | effect and treatment of diseases of \ ' the nervous system. j (No. 395; i Among the most serious of the dis-' turbances is ultimate paralysis of the j nervous system as far as it controls the bladder. Unfortunately the patient! may eventually lose voluntarily con-; trol of all of the organs associated with the excretion of waste material from the body. Without suitable treatment, it is the tendency for this disease gradually to become worse for many years until the patient finally has to lie in bed. Unfortunately for these patients, in some instances the course of this disease requires several years. In race eases the symptoms develop rapidly.'^ Every patient with a condition of this sort must be under the immediate care of a competent physician, it is important to watch the hygiene of the patient becaase relief for a great many of the patie/its may be obtained by a suitable study of the diet and other factors in the bygone of the body. Mc«t important is the special treatment for the syphilitic infection throughout the body. This the doctor controls by regularly examining both the .si,in;il fluid ami the blood, at the time studying regularly the symptoms from which the patient suffcr.s. While few cases seem to develop complete cures, in a great rnimy cases modern methods of treatment rnby bring ;jtx>ut a stop In the progress of the disease. In addition to locomotor ataxia, infections of the nervous system with the- later stages of thi.s veneral disease bring about all sorts of strange disturbances There are torms of meningitis, of softening of the spinal cord, of tumor, of changes in the blood vessels, and m«ny similar conditions. For that reason every person who ever h;. had this form of venereal disease, even though once announced as cured, should have another examination 01 the blood with the Wasserrnan test at fairly frequent intervals—say, at least every few years—and also, after some time, a Wa-iserman test of the spinal fluid. It is possible in many instances to arrest the progress of this condition il treatment is begun in the early stages It is not possible to do much after locomotor ataxia has become well established. : Pwesis,« §eneiaj flawJyiis CAST OP CHARACTERS ROBERT BARRY—hero, explorer. .>! 10 li I S S A LANE — heroine, Hnrry'M unrtuer.

CHAPTER XXII CINCE they had slipped away in the dawn that morning, Mary Melissa and Bob had been gone six days. They weren't sure of that until later, but Bob estimated that they had been gone anywhere from four to eight days; he just couldn't say exactly how long they had first been in the cave, so harrowing were those dark nours. It is almost miraculous that Hades Jones didn't find them in all that time. Left to his own inclinations he no doubt would havo climbed to Defiance Castle, found the inner cave entrance and started a search. But Hades was past 70 years of age. Climbing 600 feet of assorted ladders and precarious toe holds v/as not exactly easy, and he realized it. Not that he j couldn't do it—oh no! But it would be best to have a good reason. He didn't worry much until the third day, in fact. He had the rather vague note that Bob had left. Honey Bee assured him that Bob and 'Lissa had departed in the direction opposite the cliff. The main worry for Hades was the fact that the absent ones had not taken their horses. Where could they be going on foot, for so long'.' There wasn't anywhere to go, that he could figure. Furthermore, why couldn't he find their trail? Two days had passed before he thought to look for tracks, and wind had blown considerably in the meantime. Hades once was an expert trailer, but blowing dry sand soon erases tracks and a trailer is forced to detect such difficult signs as broken grass, shoe marks on rocks, bent wigs in brush. This Is very hard to do in desert regions. Hades circled the camp a kalf mile -r so out> but he could pick up no likely signs. He earns back and auctioned Honey Bee. * * * *4V° U sa v tnc y never said where "^ they was t}°i"ig to?" "Bawb say they go away, us to wait." Honey Bee insisted. "But where to, damn it?" She shook her head. "I wish I could say," the Indian girl declared, truthfully. "Waal, we better climb up there'n look. They mighta got hurt or something." Hades leaned back to stare at the high cliff castle. Scott Holliman had squatted, cowboy fashion, within hearing of this conversation, and now he took part for the first time. "Ain't you already been up there, cookie? Didn't I see you up on them ladders last night?" Holliman addressed Honey Bee. The girl nodded. She had indeed gone up. Most of the way, 'but not quite all. She had been mooning about the matter, meditating over the absence of the man she loved. The thought of his taking her rival angered her in the first place, and his prolonged absence with 'Lissa was beginning to drive Honey Bee into brooding jealousy. But Bob had commanded her to silence about the new cave. He was her man, she must that Hades wus absent part of the time, but they didn't bother. The old man, as i\ matter of fact, was "cutting trait." He rode and he walked, inspecting every ravine, every coyote track, every possible place for sipns of the missing ones. It bothered him that he could pick up no track. On the fifth day of Bob's and 'Lissa's absence, Holliman left the camp himself, permanently. Tempers all were strained by that time, and the showdown incident to Holliman's departure served to relieve Hades some. He had "blowed off steam" as ho would have put it. Scolt Holliman, lucky to be alive, must have had a long and tiresome walk back to civilization, but 40-od.d miles wouldn't kill him. Soon after sunup on the sixth day, Hades was slill at thu corral doctoring a mule that bad been injured, when he chanced to glance up the face of. the dill'. "Waal. I'll be fried and buttered!" he exclaimed, mumbling to himself. Thar goes that squU* up thav!" * * * TT was true. Honey Bee was •*• climbing thf ladders. She had thought Hades gone for the morning, as usual, perhaps miles from camp and entirely out of range FOR obey. She had thought of all these J g to vjsiorii y ht , i, ac j brooded all things as she climbed. She had faith in his ability to take care of himself—what harm could befall a grown man and woman, adequately equipped with water, food, a lantern, spare candles, everything? She had no belief in "ghost:;" and such yarns. And she had an Indian's patience; she could wait. "Waal, ef you already been up there to look, that settles that,' Hades ruled. "They've slipped off some'ers." He shook his old head, confused at the strange turn of events. * * * H OLLIMAN went on with the work he was hired to do, building first permanent pole frames for the ten).s, making tables, chairs, a fireplace, then assisting Hades Jones to build a corral. He was a plodder tyyt unless something stimulated him into extraneous action. He did talk once to Honey Br-c Girl about his deal with her concerning Mary Melissa. But Honey Bee was not inclined to discuss It, She wat surly. Things had gotten out of hand. All three oi them were, in fact, getting anxious, increasingly touchy, as days passed. Hollunan may have noted night. Mental pictures of Bob and Mary Melissa had bedeviled the Indian for days. She couldn't stand it, she told herself. So she determined at breakfast to climb the ladders, take a lantern of her own and go into the new cave. The time had corne when she could no longer obey her loved one's command to wait. She .nust see if he were in danger. When she had reached the top ladder. Honey Bee had worked up an intense hatred anew for Mary Melissa. "He would not have been l-ost, but for her," Honey Hue told herself. She lighted the lantern, after a quick inspection of the c-astlr- rooms. It burned evenly, l"' : ^;ac' She entered the d;"-''...e.s;,, quicarry saw the ch'!!.tu arrows Bob had mafic, marking his and 'Lissa's trail. She saw the shriveled human body in its niche, too, paused a moment to study it, Death! "Death would take the white girl out of the way," Honey Bee was thinking. •On the Indian's countenance, as she stood there, came a strange, somehow savage expression.
