Joe Robinson In choosing the men to represent them in tlie general iissenibly of the state or in the wiliomil congress it is important that the voters consider not only the eliiiraeter of the ciiiululalcK and the positions tilKcn by them on major issues but nlso tlieir ability to get tilings done. We have in mind particularly (he disc of Senator Joseph T. Hobinson, \vho is opposed for re-election by men who term him a rcitutionnry in politics, economics and social philosophy. Headers may judge for themselves as to the justice of such criticism of the senator. Progressivism after all is a relative matter. Certainly he is no •radical, but if thu Kooscvelt administration is entitled to be regarded aw forward looking, so is the senior senator from Arkansas, for the administration has had no more consistent and vigorous chainpion in the senate than he. If Arkansas voters believe in the HooscvelL policies it is dilViculi/ to see how the pro;jnuri" of any senatorial candidate could appeal to them 'more strongly than Senator Kobinso|i's. But even should they prefer the political ani| social philosophy of 01)0 of his opponents they would be extremely short-sightc<l if they displaced the senator. Kor by virtue of personal ability n\\A force of character, years of •experience,' the pjace of leadership he occupies and the confidence reposed ill him by his associates in the senate aiid.jjy the president ami 'ilepavl- inent head.- 1 ?, he ia in an unctjti'nlctl position to serve flie jntcrcsfs of his state effectively. And despite the demands made upon hi|u by affairs of a broad national nature jt is plain to all who are \\i\\hiK to see that Arkansas has benelitlcfl greatly from t|ic power and injluencp that ho holds. It is no reflection upon his opponents in the forthcoming campaign that no one of them couid adequately (ill his place for it is literally true that Arkansas has no man who could replace Senator Robinson without loss both to this state ami to the nation. The 'Human' Court Why there should bo any consternation because the U. S. supreme court justices are not unanimous in their vital opinions on New Deal legislation is certainly not readily apparent. Experts in all fields of knowledge OUfOUlTWAY almost invariably have disagreed. ]s it logical to assume that an important body such as the suprenie court, composed of rricn of varying experiences, should reach unanimity in everything it does? Chief Justice Hughes himself said recently, in un iiddross before the American Law Institute: "It is not possible that in the interpretation of law they (the justices) should be all of one mind, or be able, on demand, to rise above their environment so as to function in a higher region of icy uncertainty." Divided opinions merely testify to the infinite complexity of the legal process as modern civilization bus devised it, HUlerizvd Politics Political reprisals invariably mark an election year, but this time the punitive machinery is getting in motion CifrFier than usual—starting, in fact, on the heels of the first primary returns. Already one slule chairman, representing a major political parly, has announced that all state employes who failed to support the governor in the primary will be discharged for disloyalty. "That's usual, of," explained this particular politician. "The boys who. are not loyal will have to go. That does not apply to civil service, naturally. Neither is this a reprisal." Hut what else is it? Surely the wholesale dismissal of state employes, because they choose to vote as they please, looks no belter in America lllfm jl doe* in Naxi Germany. Moreover, one of the certain dangers of this infamous practice is that it cni) undermine the merit system. Jt is defenseless on any grounds.

MOKKIS FISHHKIN Udllor, Journal of the American Medical Association, And of llygciH, the llcallh Alai;nziiic Babies who live on cow's milk arc more likely lo have diyes-j live disorders than those who live on mother's milk. Until recently, a good part of the trouble, no doubt, was due to Invasion of the milk by yenns. Modern methods of cleanliness have eliminated this possibility. Most modifications of cow's milk Involve a reduction ot the amount j of protein and fat, and an hi-1 crease In the amount of sugar. A! dlcl. which conlains loo much | protchi, as compared with sugur, will jead to an Increased amount of bacterial action In the bowels, and. in that way. cause' trouble with nutrition. Too much protein also will Increase the water needed by the body. Most babies can take a fair proporlion of the fat in cow's milk. Hoft-evcr, it is customary nowadays to cut down on the fat, nlsn; A baby jetting cow's milk with a -high degree of fat sometimes develops an intolerance for fat. The fat ot cow's milk is not as 'easily absorbed by the human body as is that of mother's milk. AH scrts of mixtures anrt variations of cow's milk have been devised to overcome' difficulties such as have been mentioned. Sugar Is added to the milk in many forms. Milk sugar is one of the most frequent forms, as also malt and cane si^ar. The latter Is Inexpensive and is widely recommended by most doctors who specialize in "infant feeding. Many doctors recommend a mixture of dextrin n»d maltose, such as is found n many proprietary inftml foods. The common method of preparing artificial feeding for the baby Involves the adding of water, and later, of carbohydrate or sugar. Another method is merely to add sugar to the whole milk and to reduce the total qvantity of feed that Is taken. In such cases, a good deal of additional water is civcn between fcco'iugs. This adds to ihe amount of musing necessary tor the baby. An average mixture is one which contains about 7 minces of whole milk, a ounces of water, and 'i ounce 1 of sugar, such mixture may be made with boiled, fermented, or acidlpcd milk. In certain climates, It, may be preferable to use dried or cvaponilud milk. This mixture will give about 20 calories to the ounce and contain about 15 per cent of protein, 3ij per cent, of fat, and 50 par cent of carbohydrate. The feeding may be prepared with boiled, pasteurized, skhnmed, dried, evapoiatsil. sweetened, condensed, or fermented milk. There are also special preparations callad protein milks.

"All right then. Here's the address of the clubhouse." Gail scribbled it on a scrap of paper. "It's five minules past one. I must fly." "I'll wait lo see it the dame throws you out," Dick called as Gail raced toward the employees' entrance. "Don't!" she answered, with head averted so that she did not sec the cynical sinile that leaped into the eyes of a tall, biond- haircd girl who Walked briskly toward the car.

She has absolulcly no ideas about business, but she's patting herself on the back lor being a big shot in the business world!" "But Mrs. -Travcrs doesn't do anything around here, surely?" "Nothing, but put up the dough! Isn't that enough? You'd think so if you knew what Madame gels from her." "What's llhe idea?" "Oh, it's like this," siiid Clylic, lighting a cigarct, "Mrs. Travcrs is one ot those neglected wives.
