Mr. A. G. Little's "seven counts" rel- |,/alive to domination pf the Caldwcll- < 'Banks interests and otlier chain bnnk- • - ers in the affairs of the Arkansas Bankers' Association, reprinted'in the Courier News earlier in the week from the monthly publication of the Bankers' Association, no doubt seemed a matter of concern primarily to the members 'of the association rather than to the general public. That is undoubtedly true as to the .specific points made in Mr. Little's ar;- tide, but the whole question of branch, ; ':chain' and group banking has ramifica-- tions that ar& properly of public concern. . . Whether banking combinations .such as are now developing in all parts of the country are a good thing from the standpoint of the communities 'they serve, or for the general' economic welfare of-the nation as a whole is a question on which everyone is entitled to his ' opinion, but on which very few can speak with any measure of authority. \\'e can get a variety of answers from ; : ^economic experts now, and in time will ; n'6 doubt get the correct one- from experience. ; ; Biitnt is not .necessary to see any menace in group banking as a purely commercial or economic proposition to realize the danger when such a system acquires a political tie-up. '; The Caldwell interests, originally a •Tennessee concern, now are the most powerfuh banking group in Arkansas. They are strong also in other southern states. ; These .interests, including two Mem: phis, newspapers, which they control, are taking an active part in politics in this state as well as in Tennessee. i Either in the belief that a continuation 6"f the Parnell administration is necessary to ,-ths, welfare of the state, in which they have a natural interest, or for rnore directly selfish reasons the nature of which is not altogether clear, they- gave their support, through their Tennessee newspapers and otherwise, to the administration candidates in the August" primary. There are now indications that they propose to have something to do with the verdict.to be rendered at the polls next November on ten proposed consti- tutioria! amendments, some of which would put a decided check upon the taxing, money spending, and other proclivities of the( boys who hold tils administration banner high at Little Hock. Foi] example, in an article yesterday the Memphis Evening Appeal, discussing the proponed amendments, seven of which are sponsored by the Arkansas Taxpayers' Association, declared that that organization was interested primarily in i^ proposal for the repeal of the stats income tax. Whether made deliberately or otherwise, that statement is a 100 per cent falsehood, and its publication is certain to confuse the public in regard to the amendments actually to be voted upon.. The Arkansas Taxpayers' Association is not seeking the repeal of the income tax law; none of the amendments to Ije voted on in November would interfere in any way with the income tax law. These amendments, which we will discuss in some delail before the election, arc designed to protect all citizens of Arkansas from burdensome taxation and other abuses at the hands of irresponsible legislators and other public officials. We use the word irresponsible advisedly, because public indifference or other causes lias permitted law makers to act as, they would not dare to act were the people awake to their interests'. The amendments are' not sponsored by any political faction. They are the well" considered result of serious study, by men whose interest is in making possible a greater measure of prosperity, under a bettor government, for all the people of this stale. To oppose them simply because "they constitute a threat to certain soft jobs, to certain political advantages gained through control of the public purse, to certain opportunities for activities which would, not be improperly described as graft, is .mighty poor state patriotism and in the Jong run will prove mighty poor politics as well.

TJIIS includes absolute rest in bed, elevation of Ihe fcot of the be<l, and keeping the patient warm by the use ol 'hot water bottles, electric pad. or plenty of blankets. A severe -hemorrhage Is usually as-' Eoclatfd with symptoms of fear, and this must be controlled by quieting the patient- thrcugti psy- chologic measure or by the giving cf sedative drugs.

The law's praises were loudly, sung at the association's' recent rpnventlon here, which addressed by government ofliclals state loan supervisors, bankers, governor, professors, labor leaders and others. In 25 stales, it was explained small loan companies were doing business under the law, which provides for state licensing and control. The law has the support' of the Russell Sage Foundation, based on any extensive survey of the needs of impecunious persons who can't borrow' money from banks and the facilities available to them. Eighty per cent ol the population has to employ "with regularity -somo form of small losm credit," Dr. Julius Klein ot the Commerce Department told the convention., A great deal was said about the vicious tactics of loan sharks in states which didn't have the association's pet law and about the need for educating Uie public as to the high aims and usefulness of money lenders of the Leon Henderson, director of the Russell Sage Foundation's depart- nent of remedial loans.
