Miss Replies to Jiii[)orl(iiil Issues Ijcffiiming to look ;is if' this presidential year would give us ii ninv high in (he evasion of i.ssuo.s., For Uic IBSUCS this year arc not simple tilings Unit ran bo me I by a plain yes-otvjw answer. Hneli one callrs for a dcl'milc, dctailcil reply, an i!X|)lati»tiou of underlying philosophy so forthright Unit there can be no misunderstanding it. And it Is goinjf to IJG very easy to .seem lo make such an answer without, actually doinu anything of the kind. Consider, for instance, the much talked of matter of balancing the federal biicfgct. A .candidate will arise and declare flatly Hint lie believes in balancing the •budget; on the face of it, a perfectly plain and unmistakable stand. But who, in heaven's name, does not believe in balancing the budget? Unless the speaker tells precisely how and when lie aims'to balance the budget, he has expressed -a pious hope and nothing more. Well, he will say, "1 favor balancing the budget by reducing needless federal expciKlUiiras, abolishing unnecessary bureaus, and cutting down the army of federal employes." Again, that sounds very definite— but unless the speaker goes on to eite chapter and verse, he has said nothing of the slightest importance. OC course he believes iu reducing jieedlcss ^expenditures and firing need• less workers. Who doesn't? . The . point i.s, which expenditures • does he consider needless? Which bureaus are '.'unnecessary"? Which departments arc cluttered with superfluous employes, and how many of (hem does lie propose to get rid of? Go on from there. A .speaker will beat his breast and declare that hu stands for the expansion of America's foreign trade. Fine; KO do we all. Has he said anything unless he goes on to tell us precisely how he would expand it? He will declare himself in favor of labor's right to the exercise of collective bargaining; does that mean anything, unless he tells u.s just how he would insure that right?He will declaim for u sound currency; does his declamation mean anything unless he tells- us exactly when and how lie would anchor our currency < lo gold ?• The point of all this is that "How?" is going to be the all-important question of this campaign. More than ever before, it will be necessary for the slump speaker lo answer it. Simply to say "I favor—" will not be nearly enough. For we all want pretty much the .same things; economy in government, restoration of prosperity, the end of unemployment, n balanced budget, orderly and non-political administration of relief, and so on, / The (speaker who conic.-; out in favor of all those things is not worth listening lo unless he explains how he proposes to bring them about. Tha Issue ttefore lite Coinitiiuw The real issue that will confront Hie Democratic State Committee when it meets at Little Uock next Saturday is whether the Democratic candidate for chief justice of the Arkansas supreme court in next 'November's election is to be chosen by the Democratic voters of the stale in the regular party primary, as contemplated by the law of (he state and (he rules of (lie party, or by a handful of politicians. At the call of its chairman the stale committee will meet in special session to pass upon the qualifications of Oifl'in Smith, state comptroller, who its one of two candidates for Ihc nomination for chief justice. As was pointed out by the Arkansas Gaxello yesterday, Mr. Smith's (nullifications for the job, excellent as they appear to he, are none of the committee's business. If he is a Democrat and if he pays the required ballot fees lit- ineligible to seek the office. If lie wins It and someone sees fit lo challenge his right to serve, the question will he one for the courts. Griffin Smilh was graduated from Cumberland university school of law with the highest grades over made by a student at that iiislilntion. He was admitted lo the practice in Tennessee in 1523 and lia.s practiced law in Arkansas for le'n yoiins. That lie is well (liiiilified in point of legal training and experience no one denies. The only basis for the attack upon his candidacy M the contention that the fact that (or . four years lie has held a public office, not strictly legal or judicial in its func-' tions, disqualifies him. As a. mutter of good sense that is nonsense. As a technical (luestion of law it is one that the state committee had best leave to the courts. ms/m A lilllc honest perspiration will bent any amount of drink in getting n fellow out of the dumps. ..Sive<U and Uc happy—that's my formula. —Paul WjnUcmun, rotund orchestra lender.

"I iiope you managed to get along without your scissors," she said. "I haven't had a chance to return them before. Oh—were you going somewhere?" H was Saturday afternoon and Gail's week-end case, partly packed, lay open on Hie couch. "ies, I'm going lo Long Tsland. You surely don't think I'd be going down to the shore ell by lay- self?" "Hardly! What train are you trying to make?" asked Natalie. "I'm not going by train." "your friends are coming for you in their car?" "Yes, Dick Searles will bs here any minute." "Dick Searles!" Natalia repealed. "Not one of the rich Searles who give so much lo charily?" iGail smiled. "Well,'this is Ihc only family oi that name which I know. They have a lovely home and I know Dick's parents are very philanthropic." Tlie telephone tinkled. "That must be Dick now!" Gail picked up the receiver while Natalie rose and looked out of Ihe winnow. Parked in front of Ihe door was a long, slim car that looked .as though it was brand new. Nata- Jie's green eyes hardened. Some people certainly seemed lo have all the luck! o * * T<yATAUE turned as she heard the receiver click in its cradle. Gall was tucking her red-gold curls inside.a-small, close-fitting, hyacinth blue straw hat. "I hale to run away, Nalalie, but I don't like to - keep Dick wailing." "Oil, fhat's nil right! He must be a brave young men fo come to a place like lh|s when all that's to be seen is girls, girls and more gi;ls! Well, have n good time!" Nalolic opened the door and walked with Gail to the elevator. When (he door clicked behind her, Nalalie returned to her own room, Maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to keep friendly with the youngster. Apparently she had a good Job, and, with friends like the Searles, undoubtedly she woiffll have some good times, As she stepped into her room her eyes suddenly filled with tears. What had all her success brought her after all? Even the girls In the clubhouse (most of whom she ignored, for at heart Natalie was a social climber) were to be envied for their dates and good times. At last, with a wisp of a handkerchief, Natalie wiped away her tears. Maybe, after all It had paid her to be «xclusive. Maybe through Gail, she might yet step up the social ladder. :, let me take that," said Dick Searles, as Gail, dressing case in hand, stepped from the elevator. "Oh, it's light as a feather," she answered, handing the case to him. "How's everybody?" "All fine, and, say, I've a surprise for you." "What is It. Dick?" Gail questioned as he helped her into the ear.. "Rosemary's coming home next week!" "Oh, grand! I wish it were tonight." 'And in that case I couldn't, have gotten a word in edgeways,! with you Iwo chattering. No,! siree, I'm going lo have you all toj myself this week-end." "Selfish young man!" Gail exclaimed, though gay lights flashed from her ameer eyes. Gail watched Dick drive and narveled at his skill. As she looked ahead it seemed to her lhat some of the cars—as thick on the bridge BS ants in an ant-hill— must surely crash.;;- But at last traflic thinned and when they reached the shore road, 1 Dick slowed down. He glanced at Gail, and said,' "Now we can breathe again! 1 ' •' "But Dick, 1 don't see how you ever manage to drive In that mes; when every one's going at such rate!" "You get accustomed to rji sweet." His glance wns lender a' he turned to Gail. "How's the jo going? I guess (lie old dame didn; swallow you, even if you were rninute late the olher day. waited to see," "You did? You'ra a ilear." "That's right, Be good to .1 for I deserve it." "Oh, Is that so?" 'i "Yet, I had a nightmare afler left you." "Pat (Vlurphy didn't order yo away from Madame's front doo did he?" : "Pa Murphy! Never heard i (he giiy. Are you keeping somi thing back from me, woman?" "Pat's the doorman, stupid!" « * » "VJf/ELI,, it's too bad hc die * do his duty. I was held ii for 20 minutes by an old friend [ yours. Though she gave me se\' crol hints I wouldn't rise. I didn want to drive her lo (lie Waldo and treat her to a belaled lunch! "You mean Lucille Travers? <V) now I understand." The ItvT spark o£ jealousy that had leap in Gail's heart as she'd mention Dick that morning she was call into ihc showroom, was inslan' extinguished. j "How did you guess that?" ; "Oh, lhat was easy! I dot! know many of your friends, bl I'm quite insulted that you shbuj call her a friend o£ mine. 1 kno she's not that," Gail declared. ^"Well," said Dick, "she's i frfend of mine either." "I designed a frock for her ti other day," Gail told him,- and I! memory of her tnunfs drove t! laughter from Gail's voice. . "You don't sound very pleas- about it. What did she do? Ti me, quick, so I can settle wi her." . ; Gail was silent. She knew Die He wouldn't hesitate to say wV hc thought to Lucille. Still, s wouldn't be a latlle-lale. She '«• i business woman now, so, with 3ay laugh, she parried his quc lion. Laughing and dialling tbj drove along, through straggli' Villages, past prosperous develn! merits and then between tree-be' dered estates, catching a glimp here'and there of velvety law: and chimney tops of magnified homes. "Oh; Ihis is lovely!" sighed Gs sitting forward and resting r eyes on the young green lca\ and blossoming shrubs."Yes, and'.there's 1 home," s: Dick, as the old white tiouse cai into view around a bend In t road. (To Be Conlinued) ever, is not nearly so likely to be 'I harmful as n prolongation of tha I time of nursing. Few mothers renlly nre able to' nurse Uicir babies advantageously for a whole year. Many are hardly willing 'to do so. Most mothers ccrlainly will not wish to nurse the baby beyond the eighth montn, 'and n great many prefer to begin weaning during the fifth month. The first few months of breast feeding are the most important for l\K future health and life of the baby, nnd every mother who can possibly do so should nurse her baby 'for at least four or five months. If weaning then is begun by Ji'inj one artificial feeding a day and gradnnlly increasing the number of feedings, the baby will bo veaned without, miic^n difficulty. Silrlden \veanhig of n 3 or 10 months' old baby who has njver had anything lint breast feeding, i.s a most difficult problem. Coaxing or forcing the food will not solve the problem.

Food may be offered at regular Intervals and, if the baby refuses to take it, It should be removed and not ottered again until some time has passed. It has been said that a strong- willed baby will hold out for 24 to 3S hours, and occasionally for 48 'hours, but by that time hunger becomes so great that the baby will give up and eat. Water should be given regularly during tills period to prevent sc- j rious symptoms; otherwise, the pe- .' riod of starvation or fasting is not- i likely to do the baby any harm.
