Good Sense and Honesty Slate Senntor Ai'tluir K. Johnson op'imed Jhls etunittign fw governor last night with an address ill 1'ine Bli'ifl.' which, for a political speech, was singularly lacking in promises. \Vlinlever ulsu may bo said of hist (inatiliciilions, Sciintur Johnson apparently at Icnst has sense enough to realize Unit the (iiiiuiciii'l condition of Arkansas is not and will not for many years lie such as lo permit the putting into' effect of many of the attractive proposals which arc brought forth to tempt the voters each campaign year. And ivhal i.s perhaps more remarkable in a candidate for olt'icc, knowing that these 'lhii)j?s cannot 1)0 done he is honest enough not to promise them. We do not agree with Senator John- HOII'S declaration thai necessity ju.sli- lic'i contimiance of 'the .sales tux. A bad lax cannot lie justified simply by llio fact that there is need for the revenue il produces, Hut on the whole we think his fine Hluif address showed him to he possessed of tiual- ilies that Arkansas needs in its next . governor, lie may not bo the best •.'man'"nniong the ten candidates for tho office' foul the campaign has' already gone far enough to make it evident that there are n number of worse ones in the lield. 7'/fC Platform > The new 1 Democratic platform is r.trong in its declaration of principles ami purposes, weak in its failure to indicate specific: programs for the fulfillment of mitny of (hem. Regardless of its defects, howovi;r, it is at least an iiiimi.Hlakulilc promise lo continue the policies identified as the "New Deal," iiml that, after all, as the platform itself states, is the real issue in this campaign. \Vc particularly like tha Democratic statement with respect to constitutional amendments. The Republican convention side-stepped the issue entirely and while a statement by its nominee, ..Gov. Air Landon. has been widely praised as forthright and cour- r.gcous, il jilno failed to meet the question squarely. Landon simply, said that if it developed that under the constitution as it now stands the states lack the power to legislate on certain matters lie would seek enlargement of their constitutional power.. The Democratic platform acknowl- edges the self-evident fact that many Questions vital lo (he welfare of the American people cannot clfeclively be dealt with piece-men) by 48 separate stale legislatures and declares in plain language for such necessary constitutional changes' aa will "assure to the legislatures of the several states and to the congress of the United States, each within its proper jurisdiction, the. power to enact those laws which the state and federal legislatures, within their respective spheres, shall find necessary in order adequately lo regulate commerce, protect public health and safety and safeguard economic security." That is broad enough to meet the Hitnutlon. 'World's Fair" Revival The old Ainenciui Imljil of tfohiK to expositions scorns to l>o reviving. A generation ago Die "world's fair" was a more or less regular feature of I lie Inmlwiijic. When til. Louis, Chicago, or Buffalo put on a show of that kind, it would draw visitor from all over tlio country. IVople would go to lie anuiBcd mid stay to loam something. And then, somehow, tin; habit fell into eclipse. After Die San 1'Yandsco exposition of 1915 we had very few such ventures; and when thn 'Philadelphia SosnmcciUenninl Hopped, it looked as if the country hud outgrown the hnhlt for good. lint now it lias returned to us. Chicago set the stylo a couple of years ago. This summer the Texas Centennial is going great guns; in a more modest way, t,he Great Lakes ISxposilfon ill Cleveland is causing a stir. New York is planning a fair for 1930. The "world's fair" is usually a lot of fun. Jt is good to see it staging a vigorous comeback. Slnnding on the Record Scnulor noblnson w«s not afraid to admit thai In llic great emergency ivilli which the Hooscvclt administration luul to cope .some mistakes were made ami some unforeseen dillicul- tics irerc encountered, nut lie hud no apologies (o oner.

NOW CO ON WITH TI1U STOKY CHAPTER VIII reached the hotel shortly a/(er Phil, Bob and Camilla had started their quest for her. "Mr. Kirkby went away with Miss Howe nnd Mr. Haskell an hour ago," the clerk explained. "They were asking about you and seemed perturbed." "Do you know where they went?" Marcia osked. "No, Mademoiselle, Key die] not say." Marcia went upstairs, undressed, lay lor a long time in a hot bath, then nrcsscd in a while silk frock whose yellow daisies were scattered in careless loveliness over the shoulders and the round puffed sleeves. She sat down to wait Ten o'clock, 11, 11:30— at 12 the phone rang. "Marcia!" It was Bob. "Bob!" "Where in the world were you? We've been tearing up (lie town, ' Marcia, honey." "Oh, I'm sorry, Bob. I was called away." "With Hoslla." "How did you know?" "The clerk is an observing man, my dear. Is the young lady still trying to frame me?" "No, she's trying to frame me. Wait for nie, all ot you." From the bed she took a white evening cloak, laid there a while before, ami from the dressing table a small white beaded evening bag. "Marcia, you're while!" Camilla greeted her. "And Beared," Piiil ;iddcd. Bob examined her critically "Bui lovely!" "Can we go some place where It's quiet?" she asked. "And safe. I'm scared. I'm afraid rny suilc is being watched." "Then come to mine," Camilla volimlcercd. HEN WH " r. ••. ':•. She told tho h!-> . , . r , .. nc finished Inn .• , ..ionishcd silence. "Of all (he dY.,' : OT course they can't do imj-Lhiv ; 'OL;'. scare you!" I3ob raid. "They can— and will— send those pictures lo the Hew York papers," Phil interposed. "Of course we can swear lhat it's a lie, a frameup. Bui what good are we, as friends of Marcia's, againsl the evidence?" "What good would il do Rosiln and Pierre if they did publish (he pictures?" Camilla asked. Then she answered her own question. "Unless, of course, the comment was so terrible that you paid them to sny it was all in the spirit of flood, clean fun." "We have to get the pictures," Phil said. "How about it, Bob?" "I'm all for trying,. But I don't know quite how to go about it. What sbout the police?" "fliey would stir up an investi- galion. Anyway, she's been Iherc." "There isn't much lo worry about tonight. Tomorrow we'll get them, I promise you!" Bob told Marcia. "I'm to meet them at the same plac'e^omorrow at 7," Marcia said. "They know I won't be alone, if I come. Aren't they taking chances?" "They don't think you'll come. »ey may expect you to let the stunt go and crash through later when you need them. We'll gel them!" Phil' answered. « * * QAMILLA, curled up on the long couch, was Ihinking ot a remark that had been made at dinner — a remark that she was independent, self-reliant; that she didn't get herself into scrapes from which she needed to be removed. Men liked to do the rescue act— it made them feel big and manly. She walked to the window and watched the lights for minute. When she turned she spoke to Marcia. "1 have twin beds. Let's have your night things brought up. You spoke o{ being frightened in your rooms." "Thank you, Camilla. You're grand," Marcia answered, relief suddenly making her a little weak. When the lights were out at lasl, and a cool, wel wind was stirring the curtains, she did not sleep. She thought of Bob — funny that he was growing so much less important. Then she thought of Phil. She tried not to. He was Camilla's.' He had wanted: her. for a long time and came to get her. In the bed across from her, Camilla was thinking about Bob and wondering why his dark face insisted on squeezing in between her and the while sheep she was counting in order to go to sleep When Marcia wakened il v dayllaht and the hands of Ihe c lj said 10 o'clocjt. She took a show slipped into a green linen sn<! suit that had been brought J stairs the night before, along v! white accessories and a snj green hat, and .hurried do\ stairs. Camilla was slill sleep "Mr. Haskell and Mr. Cunnl ham?" the clerk asked. "They early." "Did they say where they w'i going?" ^ "No, except that the young . dies were not to expect them '. fore late afternoon or early c' ning and the young ladies v,; to stay in the hotel." ~ "Yes—of course." She went.' lo the dining room and had EC' grapefruit, coco;i and rolls si.; there were hours and hours u"; late afternoon or early cvcnl- the dining room t\ caught sight of a dark faci-l Ihe lobby—a face with two wr>| of black hair on the cheeks, drew hack into the dining i and slipped behind a screen, stayed there a long time/ she looked out again Ih'e'f not in sight.

Camilla answered. "For you,"?; signaled to Marcia, but Ma'' shook her head. ' "Miss Cunningham is nol \il You may find her in her ( suite," Camilla said casually, j I'll take a message." A sec? later she replaced her telephi "The impatient _voimg lady if Up. I think it was your bl;'_j mailing friend/' ( Later, trying lo read the ncS papers, Marcia came across sfc Inbloid headlines. Suddenly j began to sec tho possibilities oft headlines that could be pufi'.. her own piclurc. ! ; Paying Ihe 50,000 francs—„,.,. mail though it was—would be 8l Icr than having her name liili 1 with Pierre's for all the worl see. She jammed the green hal her red curls. "Where arc you going?" Co la asked lazily from the deep c where she sat reading a-new 1 and swinging silken-covered under a violet negligee. "Just—out!" . • .. The nonchalant attitude di peared. Camilla, small and and sturdy, was in front oil door. ''r "Listen, Marcia, nion en you aren't paying one cent of money.

The importance of teeth for health 'and long life cannot bo overcstimatedd. Few mothers rcnl- t?c thai first attention to the teeth of the child must begin before the baby is born. The mother should visit her own dentist early, as I pointed out ill the series on prenatal cure. She must !;cc|> her own- teeth clean find take care of any cavities or decay which develop. She must always cat the right foods, so that the child's Icclh will develop properly. Proper foods for the expectant, mother include plenty of milk, fresh vegetables, eggs, cooked fruits, cereals, and a sufficient amount of calories lo provide energy. The foods lo be avoided arc sweets and meat in excess, pastries, and highly seasoned sub- slances. CHURCH EXCUSES : Hy G. W. Barham === Courier News Classified Ads Pay.
