Respect For Law At the risk of being classified as an unutterably scoff I aw we wislv to confess to a very tired Ifcclinir nftcr rending such generalities on "respect for law" as thosj- delivered before the American Legion national convention yesterday by President Hoover. No doubt, as Mr. Hoover said, "the foundation of government is respect for law." It is a state of affairs greatly to be desired, but the way to approach its attainment is through a system of laws Mint command respect. The trouble is that in the false notion that human affairs can be put in perfect order through laws we have enacted legislation to remedy almost every real, or imagined evil. Let somebody discover that life would be better if things were thus and so and someone is sure to say "thera ought to be a law." Sure enough, before long there is a law, and in many cases it is virtually forgotten almost as soon as it is enacted. Law, to command gcn?ral respect, must be..law. When people see that some laws are violated, with impunity under almost all .circumstances, while others are enforced under one set of circumstances and not muter another, they get no very high idea of the sacredness of law. ' For example last Sunday a Blythe- villa cotton gin commenced a short run to get out of the way some cotton that had been damaged by fire. A policeman appeared on the scene, ordered the r gin stopped, juid indicated that a police court summons might be forthcoming. The officer was merely demanding ob- serviince of the law, which was his duty. But the,gin operator, knowing that in his walk down the street the officer must have observed at least a half do/en other violations of tho same law, felt with some reason that he had been unfairly treated. The point is that certain violations of our Sunday laws are accepted as nil right, while others are not. Probably with the law as it is that is the best that we can do. As a practical proposition of maintaining decency and order on Sunday it works out pretty well. But it is destructive of 'respect for law. No one can have respect for law, in itself, when H law that says one ,thing is enforced as ifJit*said fiorhethitig.eii"' tirely different. ' . And it would not be difficult to cite a good many similar examples. We have so many laws that we no longer have a government of laws, but one of men supposedly blessed with sufficient intelligence to enforce them, or not enforce than, as the customs and ideals of the people, anil common sense, may demand. That is a bud situation if respect for law is the foundation of government. But it is the best possible situation as long as we p-rsist in enacting and refusing to repeal legislation based neither on the customs and ideals of fhe people nor on common sefiae. Mississippi County and the Delta ' Show Increases , j One of the sm-prlslnjr-.'tlilnzs in the 'list" census report on Arkansas' m , the large'increase In Hie .strictly rural, population of the Delta coimllr.i, among llicm ' Mississippi, Crlttendcn Woodruff, Cross, Dcilirt and others.

Of course this decided trend to tire Delta counties raises the question as to what Is going to become of the hill farm. Just off-hand, we would say that the hill :arm will be bigger' for one thing; it will look nftcr its timber, for another thing, and Instead of cotton as a main crop, livestock, including sheep and dairy cattle, will be tho mnln features of the program there plus a fair increase in the importance of fruit. Wo don't believe a man can very long live on n hill farm and depend on cotton. But we do see a real future for the hill farm In the increase of Its size, In the production of fruit and tho carrying on of a combination dairy and livestock program. •' -Arkansas Farmer.

The Chicago funds represent 4% per cent of the Industry's payroll, 3 per cent being contributed by the employers and .he rest by the workers. This year 10,000 workers will receive about 1950,000 from the fund. "Vfe are going to hear a great deal more about unemployment Insurance this winter, both In Con- jress and the state legislatures," Dr. Wolman predicted. ut of St. Louis.

"There are sufficient Indexes on he state of Industry and Hie size of payrolls," he explained In an in- erview, "to glye us a pretly fntr visw of the state of employment in his country. '• "The Federal Reserve Board figures show a. drop in the number ot people employed In certain industries. August figures showed In manufacturing, railroad transportation and mining there were 15 per cent, fewer persons em nloyed than In August the year be ore. Ten Per Cent Unemployed "The drop in building employ- uent has been at least 20 per cent. We know that unemployment. Is usually smaller among clerical groups, but clerical employment, we can be sure, is now more than 10 per cent off. We can leavo out agriculture, which Is hard to measure, although It. contributes to the ranks of the unemployed. "There arc perhaps 45.000,000 working men and women iti tho country. We know from census figures approximately how many workers arc engaged in each major category. "And it is safe to say that at least 10 per cent of the people available for jobs are out oi work. That has been trite at least since the first of the year. "Now the period in which some revival might have been expected Is past and there has been nci're- vival. We used to say thatuncn and women thrown out of work in manufacturing and transportation industries were gradually absorbed Into other occupations, but thcr. has been no absorption this yea. because'all business activiibs have been hR cxcepi perhaps public works. Tills depresslen looks like being proved that, modern business ly we have had i>ossibiliiics of re vival in building, automobile man ufacture or agriculture, but there seems no such outlook HON. The falling-price situation is unfavorable for any pickup in business and there is no sign of n turn hi prices. ' Too Much Competition "Heretofore w.: 1m e been work- Ing. : on the theory that business could,stabilize itself and work It- self.out of such periods. Rut it is being prvcd that modern business Is too competitive to, stabilize itself;'.business Isn't organized for airy such thing. "If we feel that we arc on the i threshold' of. stabilizing business |and-that we won't have any re- icccursnce ot the present rtepres- ]slon and tlios* ol the past we can ook al the future with equanimity But if we think that these hard Ime periods are something uncon- reliable then, in a civilized couiv try, we must work out something vhereby people will not be allowed o starve. "Industry should be .obligated to create an unemployment "reserve fund for the benefit of the unemployed. These funds should be managed insofar as possible by Industry and its employes. The sys- .em should be compulsory, but under private administration. In Europe, more than 40,000,000 workers are now insured against unemployment under compulsory systems and many millions more through ,-oluntary agreements. Except dur- ng periods of great stress and the BATTLE OF KIN'C'S MOUNTAIN On October 7, 1780, a little force of Americans, calling Itrelf the "Army of the West," attacked the British at Kings Mountain, a high ridge on the boundary line between North and South Carolina, and scored a memorable victory, ons of the most heartening of the Revolutionary, War, the 150th anniversary of which, will be celebrated on ths old battlefield this year. Just before this triumph the Colonists were passing through what historians called the darkest period of the Revolution. The British had been victorious in the south, the republic bankrupt and our soldiers grumbling because ol poor pay and threatening to revolt. To lower further the morale of the American troops Benedict Arnald, an able general, turned traitor and joined the British. It was at this time that the British Major- Ferguson was sent with 1100 men to cut off a body of patriots then retreating from Georgia to the highlands of North Carolina. Ferguson penetrated too far Into the mountains and was met by a swarm of backwoodsmen. In the ensuing battle of Kings Mountain Ferguson was killed and those of his men who were not killed or wounded .-were taken prisoners. This victory proved to be the turning point: of the war in the south. A new army was soon raised for the south and placed under the command of Nathaniel Greene. Exports of tractors and parts from the United States m the first quarter ol 1330 set a new high record, chietly due to orders from Soviet Russia. TUESDAY. OCTOBER 7, ld3<S'I Taking of Liver Important Aid in Control of AnemitW — . vj BY DR. MORRIS FISKBEIN ' Editor, Journal of the Ainerkan Medical AuoclaUoa, and of llv- ttU, the Health Magazine There is another condition In which the destruction of the blood Is fairly constant and Its formation apparently deficient. It comes on usually after middle age and Is apparently associated with any demonstrable infection of the leelli, or the tonsils, or any similar disturbance. Among the early symptoms are disturbances oi digestion, apparently associated with a lack of hydrochloric acid in tlia stomach. There Is weakness and breathlessnessv ttere may be a loss of appetite and severe headaches. Obviously, one of (he chief factors in the diagnosis of the condition Is the study of the blood under the mlcroscoiw. When the cells are counted, it, is found that the red blood cells are greatly- reduced in number, whereas the red coloring matter of the' blood Is apporenly Increased. There are many strange shaped cells which may be an indication of blood destruction, and there are many newly formed cells, Indicating the attempt of the body to form a sufficient number of cells '.o overcome the condition. Fortunately In recent years studies have been made which arc useful for the control of this condition which was formerly almost Invariably fatal. If the blood has degenerated so greatly as to bring about a serious condition, it is de- ilrable to give one or several blood transfusions In order to bring him to ^ satisfactory state. It is, of course, necessary to provide rest until the red cells have Increased above 4,000,000. . The step of major Importance, however, Is the taking of liver and of extracts'of'the liver or of the stomach'wall, which have now been shown to be exceedingly valuable In controlling this disease. In ad 1 dltion to giving from one-fourth to one-half pound of coked calvc's or beef liver daily, or of lamb kidneys, the patient also takes a considerable amount of iron-containing vegetables and fruits. The general diet for such a patient includes about a quarter of pound of beef or mutton, a hall pound o vegetables, from one- fourth to one-half pound of fruit, 4 small amount of fat in the form of butter and cream, an egg if desired and at least a pint of milk. The patient should have from 2500 to 3000 calorics. The necessary amount may be secured by giving dried bread, potatoes and cereals. : When r, met rich In liver is taken, many blood cells begin to form ... promptly,- and It has been dkcov: Sjj ered that the'blood contains a definite measure of new blood fon tion. Hence examinations ol blood may be made fronij four d to one week apart and by this method the physician is enabled to know whether or not the treatment is having the proper effect. There seems to be no doubt that the treatment of this form of anemia under modern methods is life saving in the majority of cases and certainly brings about a pro'-onga- tfon of life in every case.

Blackberries—gathered by the children. Up and down the roads and across the fields they went—scratching arms and legs, tearing clothes— but it was a gay day for them. Figs, dewberries, strawberries, plums, crabapples—each jar a reminder of happy hours in the open.
