Farm Relief Pins A Model on Abundance Secretary Wallace's "two price" scheme for disposing of American farm surpluses by subsidized cut-rate sales to the needy may be wildly impractical. dangerously socialistic, or just plain screwy, but there is one thing to be said for it. It is the first farm-relief measure which treats bumper crops as a blessing rather than a curse. So far we nave tried to handle the farm problem by assuming that the age- old goal of agriculture-^-to make the earth yield as bountifully as Divine Providence would allow — was somehow wrong. We have talked about over-production of farm produce and about sur- -luses of foodstuffs just as if every mortal in the land were getting all he could eat of every desirable food! dny in and day out; and to follow a policy like that at a time when some millionsofpeople would be 'starving if it were net for government help is a certain way to get into confusion. So we ^had. first of all," the outright destruction of crops that were ready for the market— the burning of wheat, the killing of pigs, and so on. All this amid scenes of widespread want. Next we had acreage reduction, with the federal government— which meanwhile was providing food 'for millions of ife citizens— paying farmers to prcduce less anoV less. .„• ..... :,, .. ; •£?,;, - - -r- •-. -• •• f i More recently we' have had elaborate' schemes for dumping our surpluses on foreign shores; and when you study that plan for a minute, it appears to be the Queerest of all. For the net result of this would simply be, to make Amer- ican-erown foodstuffs available to foreign consumers at bargain rates. Now this new rabbit sticks a tentative muzzle over the edge of the hat. We shall probably get some six months of argument, pro and con, before the exact sha'pe of the plan is clear. Meanwhile, it can at least be said that the proposition does represent a new and slightly more logical approach to the problem. For the underlying trouble- with these other schemes, is that they all | operated on the thesis that abundance is .a disaster. Far from givnig us the •answer to this generation's baffling problem about want in the midst of plenty they accentuated that problem. Ttey represented a national refusal even to face the implications of the age of plenty. The new plan at least heads in the. other direction. Difficulties in the w- of putting it into effect probably will be many. He would be a dullard indeed who couldn t think of at least half a dozen, just offhand. wiJ? Ut f ° r thc f ?,et, that it does represent an effort to . make plenty mean plenty, we may all be thankful ' StAE, H6?12, ARKANSAS Friday, October 28, 1939 Oldsmobile Six Series 60 Four-Door Trunk Sedan The Family Doctor -t.lt. Reg. U. a pn. pg. , By DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hygeia, the Health Magazine ^ '' '. . The ^diseases', that can be'ispread by food handlers are 'not peculiar to the T fcod industry They include such com~ municable diseases as the common cold,. = r VSrous infections of.the'nose .throat^rei :~ spiratory tracts, and the skin, and £• syphilic' £ While these diseases are not limited to spread through the- food industry, this industry is so .tremendous and cctates so- closely to the lives of so many people that food handlers particularly must be concerned with what they can do to help prevent the spread of these conditions as much as they can. What part should the food handler play in • preventing the spread of syphilis? Some have recommended "that every food handler should have a Wassermann test, that food handlers should be gven periodic examinations. Routine examinations are costly. Certificates that an indivdual fs free from infectious disease smply mean that the individual was free at the time of the examination, as judged by the results of the tests that were used. ; A person who is free from syphilis at the tmle of the examination may develop the disease later, and in the' early infectious condition may be a menace to those who come in contact with him. Attempte'rttere' : made- by the Board of Health n New York City to control infectious spread through food handlers as early as 1916. In 1923 annual medical examnations of food handlers were requred. In 1934 compulsory examination 'and certification of all food handlers was discontinued in the light of modern knowledge, and only the dairy industry is now subject to such control. The Board of Health deeded that the public would be more adequately protected by elimination of the certification scheme. They have concluded that the prompt reporting of CG'nVmunicable diseases by private physicians, giving the occupation of the patient, enables the authorities to exclude the infected person from work in the food industries until it is safe for him to return. This plan has also the advantage that it maintains the 'proper confidential relationship between doctor and patient, which.is?especially important in the management of venerreal infections. "'•' ; Not every person with syphlis is dangerous to others.. Various estimates indicate that as few as 5 or 10 per cent of all syphilitics are capable of transmitting their infection easily to others. RAIS1 By Olive Roberta Barton Over-Helped Child in Danger of Growing Up as a "Softie" In writing about children, I thin we advise-dispensers all make the sam mistake. We overemphasize duty 1 the child and under-emphasize h duty to the world and his family. Since children their welfare an training are our subject, it is difficu to turn the tables and show how the must be the givers as well as the recei pients of attention. In any work o children, naturally the stress is o them, not on parents, friends or ac quaintences. But this hs had the effect, I believe, if turning every thing in the child's world into gris for his mill, I must disgres a little more. Th humanities for the child are of com paratively recent origin. Up to centur yago there were few homes for instance, for the destitute children of any land. There were no organizec 'Children's Aid' societies. No efor to make the sick child well, to look out for the orphaned or uncared for 'Not even any way to feed these last or clothe them except by the accidental interest of a kindly heart I mention al this to show that the reaction has been great. Never in al the world's history has any renaissance been so complete. In America it has been extraordinarily so. There is not another country today that focuses attention on its children of all ages the way we do here. It is a god work and one calculated to make a finer and better citizenary than we have ever known, aside fro mthe purely'human side of it. Very wel then. I have lived to observe many things. One, I believe, ip ominous. It would be strange if growing children and young people had not absorbed this concentration of ours on their destinities. They _ have absorbed it. Many are in danger of being entirely ruined by it. By and large, ther is a vast army of adolescents immature in responsibility and- self- help, ready to feel quite sory for therrw ielves when their ambitions-are not realized, or the world has failed to continue for them what it so nobly started. Is it right? I am leaving the decision to you. Promotes SeU-PHy This is the pssiv* I_jwish to make today about the youngpadolscet There is danger that his attitude is more on the recipient side than the side of work or donation. He accepts sacrifice and service to him every com- placely. This is softening. It jro- longs immaturity. My suggestion is to leave this young felow or girl step to right up and work. They must HELP with tasks. They nust HELP themselves. They must be concerned about other people's privilages, to look out instead of in, and forget their complete convenience and comfort a little. They must not coax for money or privilages to hard to provide. Above al, htey must ease being too sory for themselves. 1939 Oldsmobile Six Series 70 Four-Door Trunk Sedan E. L.

CHAPTER XXIII JP Harris Rogers' presence in her apartment was a surprise to "DOGERS and Tait agreed that a Martini would be a suitable accompaniment to "The Cat's Meow." Warily Tait sat himself down, careful to keep himself between Harris Rogers and the door. When Nelda disappeared into the kitchenet he wondered fantastically if this pair planned to poison him. This disturbing reverie was broken by Harris j Rogers' voice. "You know, Tait, ' I'm damned sorry about the way I acted the last time w? met. I deserved the sock on the Jaw. But getting fired so suddenly was a shock. You see, I thought a lot Nelda Starr she disguised her J of Dombey and of the boys in the astonishment splendidly "How ! band - rt was tou g h to have Dom- are you, Harris?" she called. Then | bey ' s widow give me the gate '" she turned in the hallway to Tait. "It appears we have an unexpected visitor. Do you know Mr. Rogers, Mr. Tait?" Tait nodded. "Yes, indeed." He walked toward the ex-manager of The Swingateers, resolved to make the best of an embarrassing situation. To his utter amazement Harris Rogers smiled pleasantly and held out his hand. "How are you, Tait? No doubt! this reminds you of another occa- j^ sion when 'Of course," Tait said. He would have given considerable to know how sincere Harris Rogers was. "I don't imagine I was very diplomatic." Rogers rubbed his jaw thoughtfully. "I'm afraid you weren't," he said with a smile. Tait was grateful for the reappearance of Nelda, bearing three Martinis and a shaker on a tray. She held them before Tait. "I have coasters somewhere," she said. "But I never can find them. you walked into an apartment to find me waiting?" "You do get around," Tait said. He took Rogers' hand, wondering the meaning of the man's apparent willingness to let bygones be bygones. Was this a trap sprung by Nelda and Rogers? Bob Tait would have given considerable at that moment for the comforting Dannie Feeley. a drink for you. For my part I really don't mind." "Thanks . . ." Tait took a drink from the tray, brought the magazine nearer to him on the tiny mahogany table beside his chair. It interested him to see what kind of a rftagazine it was—a gaudy comics magazine made up of reprints of "funnies" from the daily newspapers. A magazine iesigned essentially for the child—but, he ,, ., iii,..,,. supposed, suiting perfectly Nelda Nelda went to the tall phono- Starr's unfocused mind, graph cabinet, started a record al- rpHE ready on its table. "I was down at the Golden Bowl, Harris. 'Torchy' never plays 'The Cat's Meow' and I simply had to hear it. Been here long?" She looked at Tait. "Harris and I are old friends, you know. For months I worried him for a spot in Lud Dombey's band." Rogers laughed. "You see, Tait, I never believed that all lovely young women should sing in bands. Now, I suppose, Nelda is working on you." "Nonsense, Harris. Mr. Tait came up for a cocktail and to hear 'The Cat's Meow.'" She turned from the phonograph as the haunting strains of the song drifted into the room. "How would a couple ol Martinis suit you boys?" * * * recording of "The Cat's Meow" was coming to its end, and Nelda was about to set the neec-ie "jack to its starting place when Rogers said, "Let's not have any more of that, do you mind?" "Of course I mind. This is my apartment, Harris, and I'm the only one who is entitled to be neurotic in it." Imperturbably she started the music again. For a moment or two the three sat quietly, listening to Ludden Dombey long death. after he had met his Suddenly Nelda snatched up the cocktail shaker. "How about another, Mr. Tait?" "No, thanks," Tait said. "I've really got to be running along." "So soon? I'm sorry." NeJ.da bent her blue gaze flatteringly. "You'll come again, won't you?" Tait promised) and shook ^ ands with Rogers. As he turned to the door he half expected a shot—or a knife—in the back. But there was nothing more dangerous behind him than Nelda Starr. At the door she took his hand again. Looking at her, Tait caught his breath a little. No question about it, Nelda Starr was a fascinating woman! A month ago Bob Tait would have been intrigued. But tonight as he left the apartment he was thinking of Myrna rattier than Nelda Starr and Harris Rogers. As the date for the trial drew nearer, Tait was becoming increasingly frantic. He wondered what he might have discovered if Harris Rogers hadn't been in the Starr girl's apartment. And he wondered, too, if Rogers' very presence there might not be a very important discovery in itself. * * * TJE looked at his watch, decided *•*• that it might not be too late to telephone Myrna. Anne Lester had said that she was feeling blue —not at her own plight, apparently, but at what Lud Dombey's records had revealed. For Feeley had returned the bulk of them to Myrna as owner of the band. And they had told Myrna the story of Lud's fabulous attention to a hundred women. Tait had upbraided Feeley for returning the files to Myrna instead of to him. "Well, they belong to her, don't they?" Dannie had said. "And it won't hurt anything for her to know that Lud Dombey was partly heel." Tait could not restrain a smile as he recalled Feeley's words. Good old Dannie had done it for one reason alone—to help Myrna forget the dream band leader she had built up; and to focus a little on Bob Tait. Tait hurried into a drug store, found its telephone booth and dialed the number of Anne and Myrna's apartment. It was Anne who answered. Her voice was shaking. "Bob? Oh, Bob—Myrna's disappeared." "Disappeared? What do you mean, Anne?" "She went out about 5 and hasn't returned or sent any word. She wouldn't do a thing like that unless she wanted to stay away." Tait did not tell Anne what was "Stay right flashing through his mind, there," he said. "I'll be over. Outside he hailed a cab and gave the driver the address of the Claremont. It would, he told himself, be one sweet mess if Myrna didn't show up for Berkley. They'd be sure to track her down in the end, and she "wouldn't have a Chinaman's chance.

Tlic guards were Milton Simington, 620-pound sophomore star, and W. B. Owen. Simington, who starred ngninst Santa Clnrn last week, injured his elbow in scrimmngo tills week. Owen wns injured in the Snnln Clnro tilt. The Porkers will attempt to rnnke it four in n row over the Aggies, who were whipped 26-13 here last year. Both clubs will be fighting to raise their percentages to .500 in the conference standings.

For this chiller between the Southwest Conference's milking teams, better than 25,000 «re expected to bulge the Christian stadium nt Fort Worth. Two other conference games and Hice's intersectionnl dale with the old South's Auburn fill the schedule. Not one. but two of the nation's foxiest forward passers — Davey O'Brien of TCU nml Bill Pntcrson of Baylor—will shower the shafts that have brought their teams over the first five humps without n reverse. Oil the sod made sncred by the threc- ycnr reign of Slingin' Sam Bough, little Davey, his eminent successor, will attempt to hurl his mates over the largest jump they have yet encountered. For all practical purposes, Texi:s Christian ruled the favorite— but Patterson's passes muddle the figuring. The blond Baylor bomber, in top condition, needs only a dry field and " little time to stir up scoring poison. Before rain set in last Saturday, Patterson, in five minutes, chunked Baylor to a 6-0 lead over the Texas Ag- gies. Even after appearance of rnin that stopped his aerial work, the wiry triple-threater used his great kicking toe to salvage a tie. O'Brien's bombs wei'c expected to play the major role in Texas Christians attack, but a fine ground game, featuring Connie Sparks, John Hall, Earl Clark and O'Brien, figured far better than Baylor's. Few doubted that TCtTs power and versatility would submerge Baylor, but not without a Bruin touchdown or two. At College Station the Texas Aggies, sporting a brand new power attack centered around Sophomore John Kimbvough, 210-pounder who pounded through Baylor Saturday last, entertains the visiting Arkansas Razorbacks, a pass crazy team that also has surprised with a running game.
