Our Neighbors in Need The announcement that the ministers of Biytheville churches have taken Die lead in a movement to assure the fortunate members of the community (he food and protection against the elements cssentiid to life during tin; coming winter is welcome news. The .situation is move critical than many of us realize. The conditions that have resulted in reductions in income for most of us have left many of our neighbors and fellow citizens without means of providing even the bare'necessities of life for themselves and their families. Of some it may be truthfully said'that by greater industry or greater foresight'they'might have provided against the situation now con• fronting them. ' But that, after all, is pretty much beside the point. The fact we have to consider is that we have people who will starve if we do not'feed .them. the local.chapter of the Red Cross has taken care of the needs of former years, when distress was less prevalent, bud its funds are entirely inadequate to cope.with this year's situation. Tho ministers, with their church organizations behind them, and with the cooperation of the Red Cross, are In a position to render service that no other grpiip could 'equal. But they must have the support of the entire-community. , While there are a great many families.;in: Biytheville that will require assistance, the problem here is not as critical as'*teerphere in the county. If (he proportion of our people needing- help, is as great as. in some of the rural sections, which is doubtful, we are at least better prepared to take -care..of. them. It should therefore be carried in mind that however successful we may be in meeting the purely local emergency, our responsibility will not be ended there. Relief on a county wide scale is going to be necessary. A Comment on Politics Discussing the possible cffscts on business of a change in party control of the itcieral government, the current Magazine of Wall Street has this to say: • "As a matter of fact thsre is little OUT OUR WAY f = RltrHT CV-il»vl.

"Either of the great parties i:t amply capable of giving us foolish legislation and weak administration, but neither has a monopoly of patriotism and po- litical'wisdom. If prosperity is incubal- ing in economic processes, as we b=- lieve it is, neither imiclion at Washington now nor ill-advised action, in the future can stop it." WEDNESDAY,' .DECEMBER 3 1930 Where News Travels Slowly Radios, newspapers and movies have made the dissemination of news in this country an extremely rapid mid thorough affair. 'But evidently we still have our blind spots. At any rate, a very aged I^ouisiana backwoodsman was taken into federal court at Baton Rouge the other day for distilling whisky, and ha .confessed that he.had never heard of the prohibition law at all. Questioned further, he brought out the fact that he was not even sure the Civil War had ended—although, to, be .sure, he had heard rumors. One wonders just what sort of isolated hole-in-the-wall this chap could have inhabited. Some newspapers ought to be able to pick up a few subscribers there. The Windmill Cuba M. Higdon.

Infants Fed By Mothers Are Healthier Than Bottle Bahies . By DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association nnd of Ily- gela, the Health Magazine A healthy mother who Is enl- ing a proper diet has in her milk all of the food elements for the nutrition of a normal Infant lor at leasl the first half year of life. There is little danger of overfeeding or underfeeding, provided the amount of milk Is adequate. The milk from the mother's breast seldom contains any harmful germs. If, therefore, she Is reasonably clean and the breast Is not infected, th« milk will be free from harmful bacteria. The amount of energy provided by the mother's mlltc Is usually sumcleiil for such exercise as the infant may take. During years of study and experience it has been established, that infants fed by the mother are larger,- healthier and suller less from disease in general than do those who arc fed \vllh various foods or with special preparations of cow's milk. We know much about Ihc substances that are necessary for health and growth, but ns yet we certainly do not know all that there is to be known. Tlie mother's milk apparenlly contains all ol ihc necessary constituents for a propsr diet. It Is possible to feed an infant artificially and to provide apparently every essential, but with the feeding at Uie breast there is a certainty. Even It it b« taken tor granted that modem science of nutrition permits the supplying of everj necessary Ingredient, there is stli the possibility of error in preparing the formula, \n permitting bacterl to gain access to the lood, In cal culating the correct number of cal Dries and In other aspects of dif ferent forms ot domestic chcmUtrj . Dr. W. McKIm Marriott believe that a Urge proportion of artlfl daily fed babies have in the pas been underfed and that there ar still many artificially fed bable who do not receive the propc amount ot food. He recognizes al • so that ignorant parents cannot be 1 depended on to prepare formula ; and to keep them free from germs I Feeding at the breast is not al ways successful because the tola | amount of milk may not be suffl i dent for the needs of the Infant because the milk may not be c good qvrillty, because of 111 healtl of the mother, or for similar rea sons. In such cases, It is desirable I I have the baby nurse at the bre&s i for at least the first few moiilh j of life, taking as much of th I breast milk as It can, and to sup i plement the mother's milk wllh a ! proper formula for artificial feed Mrnj.

"Macauley was a gcoil man while he lasted. But he can't ccrac back. They never do after 50." Tuberculosis of the spine had struck one of America's leading car-, toonists, the C. R. Macauley, who drew the Christmas seal cartoon "Enlist Under This Banner" shoi'n on this page. Wracked with pain, he struggled in his .New York apartment to turn out enough free-lance work to pay his way.. Those who knew—and I;w knev.—looked at this brave man arid wondered. Could Jic be the same Macauley who in Uie days when "T. R." v;as the best kncwn, S2t of initials In the world, haJ Immortalized the "Bl? Stick"? In March, 1927, Macauley entered a hospital and underwent one cf the most difficult operations known to surgery. For three months after-, ward, he lay In bed, with his drawing board strapped in front of him fighting every inch of the way, back to health. "I would not be alive today," v.rote Macauley to one of his friends a few days ago, "if it were not for the remarkable advances made medically and surgically In the treatment of tuberculosis." • Macauley: Is much alive today and his cartoons are as vigorous as ever. causes milk to freeze when It Is let on the doorstep early and allowed to remain unprotected until the consumer, takes It In the house; second, daytime > deliveries lessen the possibility of theft. African Gold Rush May Follow trate at Splngbokfontein recemly that prospecting to the sea is iu; illegal. W. P. Thorn was charged with staking a claim between the hij.i and low tide marks near, there an.l panning the gravel in the sea.

(UP) —A rush of prospectors to the region of Namaqualands Is.expected to follow the decision of a magis- [of any'claim, under the law. Thorn was discharged. . The approximate area of No.-t'.i Arnerlc* is 8,000,000 square' m'ltts'. Pin A Five-cent Paper of pins as a, Bedding gift would now be considered bizarre and^the' donor "tight," to express it mildly. Yet pins were biice so scarce that none but the wealthy .. couli. afford -: them. A box of pins was the ne plus ultra .of ' wedding, presents, as much admired as costly jewelry and silverware. As.pins became less expensive and in more common use, women were provided with a certain -amount of money to be devoted exclusively to the purchase of pins. And so the expression "pin money," was originated. The phrase now has a much broader meaning and denotes any allowance to wife or daughters for personal and incidental expenses. Pin money now buys a thousand and one thiugs dear to the hearts of womenfolk. The advertising columns are scanned eagerly by millions of women to see what is offered that comes within purse limits. They know that the advertisements enable them to buy wanted • articles at reasonable cost. Advertising also keeps them informed of the latest news in the world of fashion. It tells what Paris is wearing in dresses, hats, hosiery and footwear. It pictures gowns for evening, afternoon and street wear. as well as simple little house frocks that are charming in their simplicity. Advertising, introduces improved household utensils, new foods, automobiles in gay colors—in short, everything that the heart of woman could desire. And that is why women are -such 1 careful readers of advertising. It enables them to make their pin money buy more and last longer. It helps them keep expenses within the household budget. Every one should read advertisements. It is one of the simplest habits to cul- • tivate, and pays dividends in savings and persona.) comforts.
