Members of the cily council and olher:i interested .are .planning a trip to Union City Tuesday to inspect a Butane gas now in operation there. The company owning that planl is understood to be r. r iuly to take a franchise here and .'make''an early start oh a plant to serve this cily. The Courier News-has consistently warned agaiu;'l hasty action in the awarding of '•a new gas franchise. It is tha kind of a proposition on which it is much better to go slowly than to go wrong. But several years of discussion and ncgo- .tiation have failed to win from any responsible concern a proppial to bring •natural gas to this' city. If the opinion U,qf. several nicjnb-rs of Hie council ^Ihnt f Butane is the-best, Jdnd .of- .ar(i(icial, •;gas is confirmed by what is seen al Union Cily Tuesday, we «;e no reason for further delaying a dcfmit-- decision. Free Elections It is a lamentable situation indeed in a Democracy \vhcn its incmbcr.s cannot express their eoin.viclioiis. freely at In: ballot box. ' ' • It is jusl such a i-lluiilion which exists in many communities ,in Arkansas as well as, if reports are to be believe'd, in Memphis, Philadelphia and, no doubt, Jn many other places. The fundamental trouble, of couivc, li:s with the electorate. An aroused people, alert to the dangers of rule .by/Ri'ol'cssioiiiil 'politicians and jealous of the prerogatives of citizenship, can protect' its rights. An indifferent electorate, cynical in its attitude toward government, careless of its rights, or willing to trade its birthright of decent govcrnnicnl for the potty favors which'' politicians have in their power to be- * stow, is certain to bj put upon. ' It is not, therefore, so much a nnil- ter of the system under which elections are held as of the spirit animating tho people. But it i: nevertheless true that control of elections by those who have" • rt' 7 scllish • interest in controlling them 'is"a" good deal'easier'under some systnns than others. II is ea-ier under Ihc Arkansas system than it ought to be, because we do nol have in actual fact a secret ballot. It would not be nearly so easy to trade in votes if it wax: not possible lo check np'oiVjIioir delivery. • The man who is "id llxT'inorcy qf landlord, banker or any '• olliiM-iperson with,-, a stake in the outcome of an election is not going lo vole his own convictions in opposition to . thai person's will wlu'n he knows that anybody interested can check up on him. It is easy lo say that a man of any . courage.and. self respect .will vote as . he pleas'cs-and hot care who know.? how.: Bui when his job or a loan to make his cropnj-bread for his family—i; al stake; it? i.4 basy for most any convince himself that there is little sense iu'Lfmiking. of. himself a sacrifice . Lo anything'as impersonal as a political principle. The practical thing for him to dp ;.?£>'lo vote, "right," and that is what ho does. Tie ought.

Needs Political Courage It's almost startling, when you come to think of it, that Hoover has no large and Influential group arrayed behind him. Big business is unenthuslasllc because business conditions arc bad. Many regular Republicans dislike him because ho doesn't play their bland of politics and hasn't given them leadership. Independents and liberals wjio supported him In 1928 arc now mostly against him because he didn't (urn out to be their Kind of president In any respect worth mentioning. Democrats, with their new publicity bureau, have given him Iho worst razzing they ever gave any Republican president.

They do not-include the important of building tissue, taking care of body waste, or providiiig the body with resistance lo various forms of disease. Protein is necessary to maintain life and to build and rebuild tissue. Becaurc the child growu so much mere rapidly than do?s the adult, it requires proportionately more protein than does an' adult. The chemistry ot the proteins is so complicated that ils investigation represents a special field In medical tciciice. Proteins apparently arc built up out of-various combinations of substances called amino/ acids.

An infanl needs a certain amount of protein In order to grow satisfactorily. Tl'.3 amount needed is alxmt one-fiftieth of an ounce for each ixmnd of the baby':; weight. II Is, however, desirable to give u little more protein than this amount in crdor to take care of any iwsslble loss.
