Whisky and Gambling I'rc.s.-.-111-e is Ijoiiiir limu^'lit, apparently with little ell'eei, to iwrsuaik' Governor Fillrell to supplement his call for the special legislative session which will open .Monday to permit consideration of legislation for tlic legalization of whisky and of race track tfimbliii);. The governor, for reasons I hat are understandable, is a little bit standoffish toward )x>lh of Hiesc propositions, lie is pcivonally inisynipathctic toward them, lie knows they are loaded with political dynamite, and, perlisips worst of all, their injection would make a long and expensive session out of a meeting of ihe legislature thai without (hem may-be expected (o last only a few days. The Courier News believe.-; [hat the liquor iiiicstion should be submitted to a •referendum vote. If the legislature can agree on n sound and non-iwliticnl proposal there is no good reason why it should not he adopted al the approaching special session for submission to the electorate next November. Kace track gambling appeals lo us as a not very attractive form of racket. But if the authorities are going to permit it to be carried on illegally ul Hot Springs anyway we might as well have a law that would permit the. state treasury to cut in on the prolits. If that i.s done it should be on a local option ba^is, however. Jf Hoi Springs wants it, that seems to us to bo mainly the. business of Hot Springs, but il certainly should not be forced upon any county or community thai dues nof want it. COURIKR NEWS Worse Than War The people of England are beginning to grow alarmed about automobile traffic fatalities. Last year aulos killed 7202 people and injured 210,32!) more in the United Kingdom; and someone has discovered I hat this i s a casualty list definitely greater than that rolled up in any single year of the Boer War—which was, us wars go, a pretty bloody and expensive affair,' _ Figures like thai show how alarming the traffic toll really is under mode™ conditions. Like the United States, England has been complacent iimkr a drain on life and health that would cau^e an overwhelming outcry if il OUT OUR WAY wuro due (o anylhiiiK on cnrlli hut the automobile.

Do you always |wur canned fruits ana vegetables out of the can Into a glass dish, for fear that retention in the tin vcssnl would give rise to poisoning? Have you heard that fried foods are indigestible? These are some of the common notions that prevail amoni; the miiiifornirri In relationship to health. More and more, doctors are learning that it is not safe lo accept an)- of these common ideas without chLTkinf Ihem through scientific study and experimentation. It is a common belief that the boy or the girl who indulges in athletics in high school and college is sure to develop an athlete's heart, and Hint the discontinuance of exercise nflcr leaving school is bound to result in fatly degeneration or some other breakdown of the system. • » * Dr. W. E. Forsythc of the University of Michigan has been unable to find any proof that the normal lienrt is damaged by well- controlled exercise. Indeed, there is little evidence that the heart becomes enlarged or otherwise dumaprrt by athletics, provided It s well when the exercise is stnrt- d. On (lie olhcr hand, a heart thai ins bmi injured will not stand the Irnin nf exercise and may MilTer i-llh .1 sudden dilalion or' a pcr- naneut injury.

Scientific evidence shoivs that the combination is ([iiite digestible and will not harm uny- oiHi, provided the fruiLs and Ihe milk are good to begin v/ith. * » • While doctors' recogniie and often emphasize the fact lliat no two human beings are exactly alike. Iherr are certain' fundamental rules that apply to all of IK. Some people contend that they simply cannot reduce; others that it is quite impossible for them to gain weight, because ihcir bodies arc different. The available, figures show that most of us arc poured out of fairly similar molds and that our holies function according to fairly well-establlsiied laws. If we cat too much for the amount of work we turn oul. we arc likely to get fat. If we eat too htlle or the wrong kind of food, wu are likely to 501 thin. In Ihe vast majority of cases, gain or loss of weight is h matter cl «-hat aplh; has been called-good physiologic bookkeeping."
