For belter or for worse, however, prohibition is in the national constitution, and it will take a good (leal more than a referendum ever to get it out. A referendum would provide a test of public opinion, would show what the majority of the people of the country want, but it could not bring them any closer to a fulfillment of their desires than thty are now. Despite the swing toward the wit • side indicated by the recent election there is no prospect that the 18th amendment will bo eliminated from the constitution within the lifetime of the present generation. It is there and there to duy for si long time. What may happen, what, in fact, is already happniing, is that it will be observed and enforced in communities, and states whei'v it ia wanted, and gradually pass into the limbo of forgotten things where it is not want. ed. That process is alrsady under way in many American communities. It is nothing now. It is. a way we have of disposing of unpopular legislation. Instead of trying to repeal it, we : just forget it. \Ylictnes- the process lisre referred to : will be_aixelcraled by the federal government from the prohibition enforcement field, except where ' liquor enters into inter-state or international coirimerce, remains to be .seen. But in any case there will be a need for thosi communities and those stales that really, want prohibition to do something more about it than they have in the past. Arkansas ranks with the dryest states in the country, according to the Literary Digest poll. Yet prohibition enforcement in many comnumitiss of this state—perhaps in the state as a whole—aside from the activities of federal officer.s, is a huge joke. Litjuor is eheap3r and better in Arkansas than it is in Chicago, which is supposed to ' be one of the weltcst s]K>ts in the United States. If that is what we OUT OUR WAY want, well and «ood. At any rate let's recognize thai it is- primarily our own responsibility and not go crying to Uncls Sam to handle a job which, if we really wanted it done, we could readily handle ourselves. Football and Charily It is (|iiite underolandabh if certain large universities do not care to par- licipate in post-season football games in which lite gate receipts would go to relieve unemployment. Quite a number of valid excuses can be advanced. • Hut it is hardly in order for any of I he officials involved to use a lop-lofty lone in expressing their refusal. Certain educators have pointed out, somewhat .scornfully, that college football iif not played for the benefit of the genzral public. Quite so; .but for whom, then, is it played? And for whom were all of these great stadiums erected? Hy making a big business out of an undergraduate sport, the colleges and universities have laid themselves open lo public misiimierslandings. They can hardly complain if their refusal to play for charity is sharply criticized. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark 7 he Valti of Tradition ' ^ It is extremely gratifying to learn that a rich English baronet, dying, has left ;i fortune'of ?ioO,000 to his valel. Gratifying, Hint is, because it so beautifully carries out on? of our favorite •English traditions. According to tradition, the English valet is perfect. He is a deft servant, a devoted ami loyal friend, a wise coun- sellor and • a trusted recipient of all manner of confidences, which he never betrays. In novel after novel he appears as a compendium of all the virtues, so..that one longs to move to England and hire a valet, if only to meet, iiv thq fksh, such a perfect specimen of Christian manhood. Now it develops that there is truth in this tradition. No English baronet would leave 1100,000 lo a valet if the valet was not just as described above. It is good to know that, some of our gay fancies can be verified now and then. . , '. Now that Qene Tuimcy is defendant in a suit tried before a Judge Hutting, expect him lo greet the Justice with a "HI. Hutting I" "Take a tip from me," as the Emperor of Abyssinia probably said when he gave awny dimes at his coronation. Upton Sinclair, who often has been taken for Sinclair Lewis, probably is hopeful ihal the judges who autirdcd the latter the Nobel prize arc victims of mistaken Identity. Exports at Johns Hopkins say the microbe of the common cold Is so small the most pow-. erful microscope cannot sec it. Shucks! They're just trying to magnify the whole thing. ( -FRIDAY,!' NOVEMBER 14, 1930 tloucd, somewhat sweeter (ran the milk sugar. Many of the Infant foods contain maltose and dextrin, because of special qualities which these sugars are believed to possess. Dextrin Is not fermented by most of the bacteria found In the intestines, but it is converted to maltose by the ferments that arc normally present In the intcsclnes. In Infants that have diarrhea, It is customary to use dextrin because It Is not likely to lead to fermentation. Dextrose can be given in larger amounts than other sugars and is, therefore, widely used in infant feeding. Mixtures of maltose and dextrin vary from 30 per cent mal- toes and 70 per cent dextrin to 60 per cent maltose and 40 per cent dextrin. Maltose is quickly converted in the intestines into the sugar known as dextrose or glucose, in which form it Is rapidly absorbed; In fact, dextrose Is the most quickly absorbed of all sugars. Because of_ its quick absorption and the fact thnt fairly large amounts may be added to the food of the infant, without the danger of fermentation, mixtures of maltose, dextrose and dextrin arc commonly used in infant foods. There :ire, of course, many other forms of sugar that can be supplied to infants In order to provide them with energy. All of the fruits contain sugars, chiefly dextrose, but Hi Is'does not possess any special advantage over othe forms of sugar. Whenever an excessive amount of sugar Is fed to ~ant, fermentation, with the for- nation of gas, takes place ard the ntaiit Is likely to develop diarrhea. "I can see the boss 1 point.

(UP)— A limited number of business and industrial firms here are being invited' to adopt the "block check" system, a revolutionary change in the present method of settling trade accounts. Here is the way the "block check" system works: A firm obtains authorization from its creditors to credit their respective accounts each month with the amcunt due them, and then sends a monthly list to the banks of the firms and individuals together with the amount each is to receive and t^c banks to which it is to be sent. The firm's bank passes the credits through the Clearing House to the creditor's accounts.
