Providing ilia Ainitntni'tioh If the authorities of St. Francis county hud elelibcratdy set out to give all possible cooperation to the gentlemen who pull the strings ill the Smith- cm Tenant Farmers Union they could not possibly have served them butter than by the.course they have followed. The officers of the union, it ought to be jikiiii even to the most stupid, arc not primarily interested in wi'u- nirig wajfe and hour concessions lor cotton fiuld laborers. The so-called strike for higher pay which they are aUe'mnliinj to'promote is in reality no strike at all but simply a pretext for provoking: u rumpus and winning publicity and ^financial support. And it is accomplishing that purpose beautifully. The uproar that has been raised in St. Francis county is out of all proportion to the imporlimco of the strike, which apparently involves an altogether inconsiderable number of fftrin workers arid has interfered scarcely at all with cultivation of the crop. But the national jjiiiihl niiel slate rjimjci'H have been on the scene, persons supposed to be connected with the union have been jailed on preposterous charges, a defense lawyer was run out of town, and yesterday the alert'au- thorities made the capture of a distinguished lady novelist, whom they detained, or at least so press reports, on ihe suspicion that she was there to aid the union. There is good reason to doubt the sincerity of the'interest which the leaders of- this 'strike have taken in the cotton field workers of eastern Arkansas. There is no reason at all to suppose that their program offers any hope for improvement of an economic situation which admittedly is bad. Kul all that is pretty much beside the point, Preservation of 'the fundamentals of civil liberty is of ;\ gooA deal more importance to SI. Francis county and to Arkansas than is this strike. And when such denial of (hose liberties as seems to be taking place in St. Frauds county serves no purpose but to provide the agitators with the very ammunition [hey are. seeking, then the authorities responsible arc compounding an imamerican conception of their duties with lamentable stupidity. Safely Program The Society of necrs, having had Automotive Engia great deal to do with the kind of motor cars we drive today, now comes forward with an interesting six-point program designed to make it safe to operate these vehicles. the engineers would require a uniform and universal license law, I«»KC<| On physical and mciUnl tests; enforcement methods that would identify the accident repeater and the habitual offender; uniform and compulsory periodic inspection of vehicles; uniform standards for headlighting, reflectors, ideiililicalioii, etc.; and finally adequate highway lighting. At a lihie when the movement for the safe u?c of motor vehicles is sweeping the country, this six-point program ought to prove import ant as a working basis for whatever reforms are brought al/out in driving.

' The baby that lacks appetite earns to piny with the food. Parents encourage tills by feed- n'g the baby and amusing it diir- ng the eating. The child develops less and less desire for food inci will probably learn to vomit, jiist (o avoid eating. Most experts now advise that :he food should be given at regular hours and, in 15 or 20 minutes, be taken nw.ay, even (hough none hns been 'eaten. The child should not be offered more food until the next regular meal. It is hardly worth while to £|>chd much time talking to the child, because coaxing only makes matters worse.

She knocked ngain and slill there was iio response. "I suppose some of the Searles have come for her," Nalalio murmured rather bitterly. It was just like her cousin Mabs to telephone when Natalie was at dinner with Gnil. Mabs had said she was at brand Central stalioh. Natalie had gone down to wait With her cousin between trains — hot even slopping io tat desserf— and then Mabs had discovered that her train didn't leave until 4 o'clock 1 . Going to her room, Natalie took off her dress and slipped on a filmy negligee of chiffoti and lace (she had bought il tor a trifle at n sale in the store) and picked up the Sunday newspaper. She turned at once lo the "Personal Notices." Why she always looked at them first she couldn't have toid you. Yet Ihere was something exciting in reading these curious ads (hat might , mean a complete change in fortune for some unsuspecting man or woman. Carefully Slip looked at each one, inwardly Commenting on them. Then she gave a queer, staccato-like cry MS She read: "Information wanted about Peter Everett or his heirs, formerly of Hudson View Gardens, New York. Suitable reward will be given by a friend. P. O. Dox 11, downtown." Then Natalie went to hr.- desk, nnd wrote on answer to the advertisement, dressed again and ivent outside to marl her letter. * * * •'TJ1D you notice this in the newspaper yesterday?" Giles tlnrding's secretary asked as she nartdcd her employdr a paragraph cut from the personal cblumri. The old lawyer took ihe clipping from her and read: "Information wanted about Peler Everett or his heirs, formerly of Hudson View Gardens, New York. Suitable reward will be given by a friend. P. 0. Box 11, downtown." "Well,-.what's, the meaning ol hat, I wonder?" "I've thought of several things, but of course it may just be that some old friend has got around to wondering why he hasn't heard from Peter Everett lately." "Yes, but I think, there's some- tiling more to it. I'll keep it here on my desk. Anything else in-' leresting in the column?" "No, nothing today." "All right, thank you'," and Giles Harding turned to his mail. But his thoughts were with the advertisement. Picking np the clipping, ho suddenly decided to call Miss Cranston. So he put through the call, and was surprised to learn that Gail Everett was now living and working in the city. * t » TVJATAUE'S leltc'r reached its destination—the office of the Travers Mining and Development company. As the manager read it, lie smiled rather grimly. Pressing a button that brought the office manager, he said as the handsome, well-dressed, middle- aged woman appeared, "I'd like io talk to you for a few minutes, Mrs. Barton. Just sit down." "Certainly, Mr. Gage." "The fact of the mailer is, the Travers Mining and Development finds it imperative io secure some land oul west, but the owner has died, arid we don't yet know about his heirs. I put an ad- verlisement in yesterday's newspaper and have received this answer." He handed Mrs. Barlon Ihe lelter Natalie had written. "F.viderilly there are some heirs," Mrs. Bni-ton commented, laying the letter on his desk. "Yes. Now I want you to invite this woman to meet you at a hotel and ask her to lunch with you. Talk to her'and get all the information you can, assure her that it is on acount of friendship you are anxious to get in touch with Peter Everett's family. You understand what I mean?" "Yes, I do.". "All right, Mrs. Barlon. Now about the reward. I'd be willing to pay as much as jiop if you gel the information, but bl course you'll have lo judge nbout that yourself. Perhaps it would be well to biier hot more than $25 or this person, whoever she is, may become suspicious."^ "Very well.. I'll ^inake, an appointment and I'm sure f ; can find out all you want lo know." TV~ATALT.F, was thankful that her mysterious correspondent ich at suq There w;. had invited her to lunch a fasliiohable hotel. There no likelihood of encountering Ga' ; there in the middle of -the dill As she taxied across town Natal! had no misgivings about her c rand.

"Is this Mi| Preston?" the woman asked inj pleasant voice. i "Yes, atitl you're Mrs. Carton Natalie exclaimed. | "Yes. I'm so glad to meet friend of Peler Everett's." 'You know," she went c when they had settled tlicmselvj at a small table, "1 really hcsHcj ed fo pul that advertisement 1 the paper, for somehow I alwa! feel as though those aclverlisi menls are for lost heirs, and j; course I've no fortune for the Kj erells." Slic smiled disarming^ "Well, I don't imagine Gail looking for one." "I'm going to fell you cxnc$ why I advertised. Years ago nj : . father nnd Peter Everelt iWJm quite friendly.

I'm 501';! to (ell you, (hough, that Everett lias been dead for (hi>: years." Natalie graphically pealed Ihe story Gail had about her father. "Oh, that's too bad! I must ktlil this from my father. It's bctflf to let him think he's still travH ing in Europe than that he's go'l But hndn't he any children?" ;''. asked kindly. "Yes, one daughter—Gail." Miss Barton smiled in such! disarming way lliiit she a' learned where Gail was living ; where she worked. ,, "Well, I'm certainly glad ;'. have met you," Mrs. Barton c<' eluded, opening her handbag, wonder if you'd accept $25? V know I offered a reward. Do 3' think that's enough?" "Why, yes . . . more enough.
