' . - , x Greenland,. it ajipcar.s, has liecu ' fattening iis treasury by lining unwitting violators of its 20-miles-per-.' hour speed law. Inasmuch as the town is no more than a wide place on. Die St.. l.oni.s-JopJin-Korl Sinith- Tcxarkauu highway, which is much used by tourists, it may be imagined that victims were numerous. The state highway department has no authority to prevent enforcement,by Greenland of its arbitrary and unreasonable law, but in warning travelers against it it is doing the next best tiling, •for-which il <lc:uives commendation. The Courier-j News' luis hid, occasion in the past to criticize various , of the stale {, r uvchimcul, notably tho revenue department, for unreasonable inter fere nee with the iise of- (he highways. \Vc are glad to see that the highway department lias the wi-doni to recognize Lbat it is in tho interest of Arkansas lo encourage the use of our roads, particularly by visitors from out of the stale. This is true at all times and it is particularly (rue in thh Centennial year, when we are trying lo.exhibit ourselves to tho country as a , \\i\pic j'iuyllii: best possible light. "' r " ~ " '' V V; 'f U'c should do everything possible to make our liiglnvnys\safc. Reckless ami drunken..'fli-ivei'S, whoever they mny be, should be vigorously prosecuted. Unsafe .'and . improperly lighted vehicles should be kepi, off Hie roads. Livestock L-liould not bo permitted to wander at large over our highways. But arbitiary and unreasonable sliced laws make no contribution to safety. They only make enemies where we want to make tricnds. And regardless of practical results, they arc a species of petty racketeering which no self-respecting should tolerate. We don't want American boys going oft to warmid coming back with foreign wives. Too many American girls were left behind with broken hearts tn tlic Insl war. —Marian Carlclon, Tulane University, chairman ot "The Canteen Cutics," auxiliary organization to "Vct- crans of Fvturc Wars." '.Real- Public Ei Hnviujf rounded up the most notorious of (he nation's public enemies, J. Edgar' Hoover now seeks the persons who harbored and abetted these criminals. Thai includes doclors, lawyers, find lK>liec of various American cities who are suspected of having aided Karpis, Campbell, Mahiin, and oilier dangerous racketeers. In Cleveland, for instance, certain lotal politicians with police foii- nectioiM arc stisiwctcd by Hoover of having aided in the 1!W (-scape of Ihc Karpis-Barker-Camnbel) gimg. One can only hope that Mr. Hoover is 100 |wr cent successful in catching up with' thcs'j nefarious undercover operators. Were it not for Iheir aid, (he racketeers could never have gone' as far as they did. Thc/o unscrupulous aides o'f the nuierworld arc, in fad, the rcnl public enemies.

(To Be Contiiutcil) able during the batlimj period, rile head and the neck sViould b£ •iipported as long as the baby's nusclcs are unable lo do this. It is not' nece'ssary to" wash-the baby's moulli, or to use:stiff :in- struinciits in cleaning 'the ears. I'he ears may be wiped wlt'.i swabs of cotton dipped in tnineral oil. . Any discharges from : tlic cars or the'eyes.should ba called inmicdi- itcly to attention of the doctor. If the scalp is hot properly cleansed, the child may develop a flight irritalion, due to oversccrc- tion of lac an.1 oil glands'. The fat and the oil mix with dirt and form a crust. This crust may be removed with oil. If the head kept clean, the trouble ends promptly. Special pains should be taken in toying th; skin thoroughly "where there arc folds or creases. Oil may be used on the parts of the body where there may be irritations, and powder may bn applied to keep the areas dry. Following are some simple instructions: 1—In washing the baby, pay spe- cial attention to creases in the neck, under t'nc arms, at the elbows, bs- twecn Ihe foes; and in Ihe groin.. 2—Put Ihc baby in the tub, supporting liis head with the left hanil, spreading the fingers lo support toe shoulders. 3—With the baby sitting on the right hand, slide him into the tub gently, feet first Plunging the baby suddenly Into the water will fristnlen Mm. 4—Hold Ihe baby so that his liead and ears are out of the water. 5—Allow the baby to remain In the tub for two or three minute.; after completely rinsing- ofl the soap mixture. 6—Remove t'ne baby froni the tub, holding him as you did when immersing him. 47—Wrap,In a bath torel- and pat tnofouglily dry. 8—Oil irritations or ; creases, and remove excess oil with a soil towel.
