Because I hoy were taxed by ;t parliament in which 1 they were not represented the American colonists rebelled ;i}?;iiii.-t. Great Britain and won their independence,' When taxes are placed upon (hem liy the legislature tit Little Hock llio people of Mississippi county have almost e<|iial gran nils for complaint. i''tir while Mississippi county (and this is also true of many other rapidly developing counties in Arkansas). is not without representation it lias far from nn equal voice in the determination of .slate alVairs. With nearly four per cent of the stale's population, Mississippi county has only a one per cent voice in the. general assembly. Because it was settled first uiul was relatively strong in population when the last apportionment was made in 1890, the ,0/ark region of the slate, now relatively small in population and smaller still in taxable wealth, dominates (he slate legislature. Where Mississippi county lias one represcnla'ivu to 70,000 persons some Oxark conn lies have one representative to less than 10,000 persons. It was this situation that made possible, the enactment of the sales fax, "which wa., generally opposed in under-represented eastern Arkansas, and if it is not corrected it will make possible the enactment of other undesirable legislation in the future. For as things stand the 0/ark counties hiivc the legislative power to tax us for their' benefit and as long as we submit passively they may be counted upon to do it. The proposed reappnrUonincnl amendment will provide only a partial remedy. It gives each county a representative. and with the membership of the haute of representatives limited • to 100 the small counties will still have a proportionately stronger voice than the large ones. But its adoption will go a long way toward curing present injustices. It will give eastern Arkansas citizens at least, something approaching voting equality with the hill sections of the state. Taxing Divorcas More and more Soviet Russia swings bnck toward the fundamental values of the home and; of the family. In the last year there has been increasing agitation for strcngt hen ing the position and permanency of marriage. And now comes the most significant move in the whole trend—a proposal to discourage divorces by luxation. It is embodied in the marriage law that is being drafted to double the tax for each divorce after the liMl. What such a lax might do to some of our own 100 per cent American divorce court veterans is something to shudder at. lint it is worlh noticing thai the Russians believe thai its chief value will be as a preventive of hasty marriages. To marry in haste anil re- punl at leisure is not so good, if the "leisure" gets progressively more costly. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Italy, C,cri> The question of Germany's former colonies has been taking on increasing importance of late. It almost begins to look as if lOuropc could not solve it-.i present complex problems without giving Germany some of or all her former colonial possessions. Those possessions represent part of the price Unit Germany demands if she is to keep the peace, say, for the next 20 years. It i.s well known that Ilcrr Hitler viewy the acquisition of colonies as highly important, both as a source of raw materials ami as an outlet for- population. Hence arise the questions—when, where, and how will Na/.i Germany get her colonies? Will the major powers divide with her? Are there available lands she might buy, as the United States bought Alaska? Or will Germany pursue the Mussolini course and light? The; peace of Kurope may hang on the answers to these questions. FOLLY and FAREWELL By Marie Blizst<}| "I think I'll wake him up for you.

Mature milk, whic'n is secreted by the mother after the first month, about &1.3 per cent water; 1.25 per cent protein; 7.5 per cent sugar; nnd 3.5 per ecu fat. The amounts of these constituents vary in different specimens, most variable being the fat, which riiay be anywhere from 2 to 6 p:r cent. If tha mother Is getting an in-, sufficient amount of food, the milk ] will be deficient in both fat and protein. If she gets too little fluid. | the milk will diminish in quantity. The composition of the milk is influenced little by the mother's diet, except, lor Ills vitamins. j A question invariably asked is. vhi'tlicr t?.i, codec, tobacco, or al-! cohol affect mother's milk.
