Tragic Foolishness The tragic thing about the epidemic ; of bank closings-tfcat has swept over Arkansas us u..jjoiin'cl to the collapse ' of Caldwell aiid'company "of Nashville, Tcini., is that for the most part they have been utterly unnecessary. The banks, or at least the great majority of them, havs been sound. U is common sense that has failed. The result for many communities of the state has been the tying up, temporarily at least, of funds and the destruction of facilities for the orderly conduct of business, all at a linn- when the communities involved could least afford any such sacrifice. Arkansas lias passed through a trying year, and has a trying period ahead. -It itj a lini(j foil/courage and KWH\ judgment, if WE are to preserve the means ! of rescuing ourselves from the results I of drouth and market depression, not ; for a cowardly hysteria that sweeps i away the foundations of, economic pro; grass. I The people of Osceola are showing ; the, right spirit. . The fact that officers of one of their banking insliLu- : 'tions felt that its association in the public mind with a Little Rock institution thai has closed made suspension of business advisable has not stampeded them. •Their other bank stands secure, and there is an excellent prospect that the closed institution will shortly reopen. ' Evidence from throughout the state indicates that the wave of hysteria that yestenlay reached'its climax in many communities has already begun to recede. Within a few days wo will all have a realization of the utter foolishness of the furore, and new topics of conversation will take the place of bank difficulties. ; To Stimulate Business rr » If llic fcdsral ffuvcniuicnt, as hits '<• been hinted by President Hoover, Ciui - ti)id a way lo make immediate pay- ment to veterans of the world \viir of ~ money due them under the acljlisted Z compensation act it. will make \\ Irc- ~ . mciulous contribution toward the early ~- restoration of normal business condi- ^ tions. *• We have no ligurre available on the •money involved, 'but it amounts to many millions. The men to whom it is-due are for the most part on the suiiny side of middle life. They are establishing businesses of their own which need all lite capital they can command, they have families of young children for whom they desire to provide homes, some of them arc handicapped,by ilebts Ihsy would like to get out of the way. They are men, in' other; words, who would put the money into circulation by spending it for constructive purposes. For the United States lo settle its obligation to th'.m would be a well earned reward lo the soldiers of the world war and a constructive piece of national economics. A Confidential Matter The coining .session of Congress will be asked lo pass a law authorizing the . Census Bureau to furnish .state officials will) the names anil addrussc.s of illiterate persons, to b: used confidentially in campaigns to reduce illiteracy. Under existing law, this information cannot bu given out. Tilt, |>n>ix>sal is a jfood mie,' and deserves to; nevertheless, one may ho|>c that it will not set a precedent. The information that a cili/en is compelled by law to give :i census enumerator is, and ought to be, highly confidential; a secret, no to speak, between the citi/en and his Uncle Sam. 11 ought lo remain that way; must, in fact, if the census is to have any value. This particular measure is uudoubl- , cdly a good one. But Congress will do well to insist .that there shall be no more moves in a similar direction. The Windmill Cuba M. Hi^don.

Milk, which is lhc chief food of 'the Infant, contains much mineral matin and an especially large amount of calcium. It is, however, quite deficient in Iron and iodine. Green vegetables contain sodium and potassium, small amounts of calcium and Iron, and, accord- Ing to the section of the country In which they are raised, varying amounts of iodine. The fruits and fruit juices contain varying amounts of potassium salts, and thc whole cereal grains a variety of salts, but cereals are not considered an especially grod source of calcium. Eggs conlain varying amounls of various salts, particularly calcium and iron. The growing Infant has to have enough calcium to provide for the growth of the bones and of thc teeth.

One of the suggestiona Is patterned after the practice in sonic largo American, cilies of closing certain streets weekly to traffic for 24 hours to be known as "playground day." George Laiisbury, First Commissioner of Works, is an ardent supp-irler of such a plan.
