Protecting the Morals of Statesmen Apparently tlio bright lights of Oklahoma City have boon pullinc too much of temptation in the way ot" Itio rural statesmen who Rather at I ho cnpil-jl every two years to protect the welfare and advance the progress of tlie -stale. But Alfalfa Hill Murray has a remedy. "To protect, the morals of legislators by nmovhiff influence of the vicious lobby in hotels" he proposes a ?500,000 appropriation for an apartment building in which the orderly serenity of an old Indies' homo will take the place of the gayety which we ar; led to believe is characteristic of life in the city's hostelrios. Unmarried lawmakers, wo are told, will be segregated even from such feminine companionship as might be afforded by the wive-; of their fellow legislators. Each will have an apartment consisting of bedroom and kitchenette, Hie latter to obviate the necessity even of brief visits to hotels for meals, while employes of the institution will be persons GO years of age or older, recommended by the ministerial alliance. Whila the press gives no information on thiii detail, it,is to be assumed that to protect the state's ?f>00,000, as well as to in-.-ure the desired moral benefits, legislators will be • required to hvc in the proposed building. It would also seem desirable that the rules of the institution be such as to coinpsl inmates to be in their rooms at n P. M., with lights out at 10, except perhaps on Saturday nights when permission to remain uut until 11 might bu granted upon registration with the doorkeeper of the purpose and destination of such nocturnal excursion. An Example. Last night the ConriL>r NL-WS luid something to say on the waste nntl delay involv/cl in tho iivactiec of holding to the grand jury defendants who enter pleas of guilty in .jiHlice comt. Here is a case in point: Nelson Crow was hroiiRhl before Justice R. t.. JIcKnight this morning on a charge of t'org;ry and uttering n OUT OUR WAY forged check. He submitted a written confession and entered n plea of i;.:iliy. But before he can be sentence! he must await action by the next grand jury, which meets in April. In the meantime, unless he should be nbl= to make bond, lie must remain in jail at an exju'iue of $1 per day to the county, Ill-sides tho additional unnecessary cxprnsi- of the grand jury proceedings. Here is a concrete example o)' a kind of waste that costs this county and all the coimliY' of Arkansas gr:al win:.-) each year. .Muiioy for the m;i - i-.v-:ay expense of government is hard omiu;;h to obtain. Let's get rid of unmcessary expenses such i!s are involved in cases like tin: above. Politics Gds Liodu Again *-r «J Trying In kf.p abreast of all nf tile charges and counler-charges that lill the air at \V'as!iington is too niudi of a job lor most of us. \Vi; read Mr. Smith's blast at Mr, Lucas, Mr. List-as' reply, Mr. Kaskob's f^suult on Air. Kent, Mr. Kent's reply, Mr. Fes:?' wallop at Mr. Shuiise—and the thing gel:; •beyond us. It's v.ry interesting, but keeping informed on all of it is a fruitless job. No one mortal can comprehend it all. However, t:-^ an indication of an awakened interest in politics by the general public, it is all rather encouraging. Public apathy in regard to politics has been the curse of American life for more than a decade. If we can get back to the old condition in which men took their politics seriously, we may get that long-awailt-il realignment of the two major parties— and, as a consequence, a better and mure responsive government. Now that the Soviets are shipping electric lib'ht bulbs expect some writers to make light of the fact. In a football match in England recently nine players were named Jones. It is said, spectators Imd u hard time kcepln;; up witii them. There would bs fewer day dreamers, :;,>y,s lliu office saac. If lucre were n way of taxing a man's yearnings.

For it is far more economical and pleasant to keep a child well by feeding him correctly than by nursing and doctoring him back to health. Of course the doctor should be consulted regarding what a child should eat and what he should not sat. Hut do you realize that the leading manufacturers of food now seek the advice and approval of the leading nutritional authorities in the country, relative to he claims they make for their products, in their advertising? In other words, food advertisements are reliable sources of information regarding diet, They are based upon the results of the latest approved scientific discoveries about vitamins, minerals and roughage, in relation to vigorous bodies, clear complexions, sound teeth and properly regulated systems. So read these advertisements carefully. Consult your doctor about them. Very often the advertiser invites you to do tliis because he has asked authorities, whom your doctor respects, about those advertisements first. .\i ?•'•'•'- .
