AD rama From Life It Pays to /Ccep Au)ake Charles Barber, a truck driver, is :is scared of slumber parties now us limn- lot, about whom Shakespeare wrote a play, ever was. Hamlet, you'll recall, was iifraid thai he might dream. Barber is afraid thai lie might snore. And the serks of nasal utterances that he gave at a New York movie the other afternoon cost him ?3. He wouldn't leave Die show, so he was arre.stwl and fined. Perhaps it is one of tho most harmless arrests in history. Hut it disturbed the peace. Patrons of the theater couldn't hear the stage voices. If you can't sleep quietly, stay at home. This seems to be I he moral of this bedtime slorv. Dramatists could get ;v few ideas for effective curtains from Mahalma Gandhi, the Nationalist leader, in India. The .other night, just focfor.; midnight, while a few lonesome stars .shone in the ragged velvet of the sky, ihe gates opened at Poona Prison. Guard? cum: ottl, and with them was a litilc, brown- skinned old man, dressed in a thin piece of homespun. He glanced buck at the gaunt walls of the stronghold where IK had ijcen a captive. He didn't want to leave, Other political prisoners who had been arrested in connection with his civil disobedience campaign were not free. But out.-ide in the world there was work to <lo. He had to go. Millions of his fellowmeu were wailing for him to lead them' in the pilgrimage which he has started. There is nothing of the theatrical about the man who is recognized as the outstanding crusader of the age. But there is everything of the dramatic. 'Hectic Paris Stows DoWn Tourists won't have much reason for going to Paris to make whoopee now. The town's slowing down. There's a cnvi'ew on noiso after 10 o'clock at night.

' It Is fortunate for Arkansas that she has in her legislature men of sound and sane views and course to express them under loins conditions. Mr. FlcmliiE mode a most moving plea for his bill. The easy tiling for Representative Myers of Lawrence county and Representative Johnsion of Johnson county would have been to yield to the general sentiment in the House. Instead, they undertook to make their fellow members realize the cold, plain truth that this Is not the time for Arkansas to attempt to market new bond issues. As Mr. Myers put It, Arkansas can not afford "to substitute sentiment for s;nsc." lie told the. House that Arkansas cannot disregard the likelihood that the Fleming measure would come into scriokis conflict with the federal arrangement Cor feed and seed loans, as well as overburden a bond market already slow to ubsorl) Arkansas issues Mr. Johnston also questioned the feasibility—which must be very doubtful to any man acquainted with Ihc facts—of marketing such a bond Issue.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, 1031 There was a lime w|icn the disease was extremely frequent hi practically every country in' tlie M'orld. Seventy-five years ago it was one of the most important diseases In New England, Maryland, Ohio, and southern -Illinois. Cases arc now so rare In these places as to be almost medical curiosities. The control o; t:i:s disease lihs been brought about by the discovery of the nathod ol transmission Imlnatlon of the mosquito from (lie Iminatlon of the fosqulio from Hie vicinity, and ato through the active treatment of patients by the of quinine.

Ten days later it gave you a pleasant glow of anticipation to receive the trim card telling you when'they'd'be"at home." And today you got another card, headed "Now we are three!" Bill's signature comes first, then Katherine's, and then—the guided, chubby scrawl of the newcomer, Jeremy. You Happen to know that although he is in line for an important promotion, Bill's present salary isn't large.
