Each Community Must Aid Its Own People In some fashion the word lias gono around that ISIyllievillc i ;i niitl-suul.ii heiulquiirlurs for free food and clothing in the prc-cnl period of distress. As a result tlic local Red Cross olVicu is beinu besieged d.tily with families that in one way or ar.olhcr have made their way to this city J'rom Missouri, Tennessee and various counties of Arkansas. The only v?sources for relief work here are those contributed by the people of this community. It seems cruel to turn away folks that have come tor miles to obtain help, but und;r the circumstances that is all that can be done. There is a iieed in Blylhovillc and the country immediately tributary to it for every dollar, and every contribution of food or clothing that can bo obtained. To extend help to people 1'roni other communities would simply be to deprive our own people 'of Hie help they need. In circumstances like the present it is up to every community to take care of its own. JJlytlifvillc and other Mississippi county communities' arc endeavoring to do that. They cannot take care of' people from outside. It will be an act of kindness to unfortunate people in other communities if readers of this editorial will take every opportunity to advise them that cfl'oit siu! money spent in coming to lilyiiieviiL in the hope 01 aid will be wasted. men have died sine; the bank failed, and thu past four years have no doubt seen changes in the circumstances of others. The lesson which Dunklin county's expert:ncc in this case teaches, and one which noi'iis to be cmpha^i'.'.ed, is that personal bonds are mighty poor security for public; funds. Sometimes difficulty is txnenonc-d in collecting on surety bonds. Bui personal bondsmen almost always jcem.to find a way of squirming out from under, The law ought to require the protecting' of all public funds by surety bond. The public official who is umibh to make I hat kind of a IJOIK! ought to he automatically disqualified. Fores/ Fires Losses Drop Statistics on practically every tiling show Imve rtotals for this year than for la-it year, and in most cases these lowered totals are disquieting. i!ut oim case has just com:- to light whore the decrease is very gratifying. Thai if. in Iho figures on the loss from forest lircs. The Forest Service at Washington announces that lire damage to national forest lands this year was held to $237,370—a ruthicliun of more than 30 per cent'from 11)20. This reduction was made in spite of the ilrync-ss of the weather, which made th;- fire hazard more dangerous than usual. We are accustomed to .-ceing Ihooo forest lire figures high in the millions. This great reduction is something over which we can rejoice mightily. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 18, SIDE GLANCES By George Clark ' vcrc Irritations of tlic buttocks due lo chemicals in the excretions, Thus In some cases the action of a germ on the lluld that Is ex. crcted spills thu chemicals which It contains Into products, one of which Is ammonhi, uml the ammonia is irritating to the skin. In the case o( such irritation from the diaper, Ine growth of Hie germ which brings about the formation of ammonia may be prevented by washing the diapers In | antiseptic solutions. Obviously In cases of h-rliatlop of the skin such as have been described, the matter of first Importance Is to determine cuactly the cause. Usually with removal of the cause of the Irritation, the disease promptly disappears, particularly after the physician prescribes a healing lotion or ointment or some, other measure to aid healing and to protect the skin during the healing process. In some cases in which the skin has seemed to be especially Irritable, various means have been attempted to decrease the irrlta'- llcn. Among these are application ol ultraviolet rays to the point of tanning, and sometimes the use of Roentgen ray or X-ray to hasten the activity of the cells and to overcome the Itching. The relief afforded by such measures, however, is only temporary, anil it is important in every case to determine the cause j and to remove the source of iirl- ' talion. I .
