Results of Repeal The recent discovery -by u number of United States senators that repeal of prohibition lias not liecii an unmixed blessing, even from the viewpoint of the citizeii who likes an occasional drink, is no news to the rank and iile of Americans, who found it out shortly after the constitutional b;m on intoxicants was lifted. 01 course we in Arkansas are not supposed to know anylliing about it. But some of us have learned by word of mouth or personal expeditions to the moist region to the north of us that regulations designed to make a good citizen out of the liquor traffic are of little practical effect. Besides that, and maybe more to the point, the common rui^of legal whisky seems to be no great improvement over the stuff that was available in the dry decade. And it is a lot more expensive. The fact of the matter is that in the burst of, enthusiasm with which repeal was put across all the high- minded scientific ideas for handling the liquor traffic were forgotten. The bars were let down and no worthwhile safeguards against abuse were provided. About all that was done was to plaster on taxes so severe as to make the cost of good liquor prohibitive to the ordinary customer, with the result that the business opportunity in the bootlegging trade remained just about as good as it ever was. i The country doesn't want to'go back to prohibition. But it ought to overhaul the present situation. And if the state of Arkansas gets around to legalization of whisky it is our pious hope that the problem will receive careful advance study to the end that we may handle it in a better way than most of the other states. Improvements Mayor Shane is making (jixxl hid promise to put the city of Blythuville back on its financial feet. An operating "profit" of S8,'118 for the year recently ended has marie possible a substantial reduction in accounts payable, and another year of the siimc kind of management should put the city on easy street so far as current operating costs are concerned. The bonded debt presents :i more difficult i>roljlcm. Due to sharp decline in assessed valuation Ihe lax set up to care for this debt is no longer adequate. The city is running behind on its bom) obligations and that is something that can't be permitted lo go on indefinitely. to Fundamentals School children in Soviet itussia, says a current dispatch from Moscow, are going buck to the old-time ADC's, mid study them much as school children do elsewhere. Kor a long time the youngsters in the primary grades in Hussiii have been getting good doses of "dialectic materialism" and "economic determinism," and so on — stuff that would be over the head of the average high school pupil in America. Now the Soviet authorities have at last discovered that it doesn't work. The kids simply can't take it in. And one wonders if the resultant shift back to simpler and mere prosaic methods of pedagogy isn't more or less symbolic:. Hunning a nation on purely theoretical lines is a line idea, maybe, but compromises with reality are inevitable. A school child .is a .--chool child, the world over. His introduction lo the three R's is apt to be pretty much the same under Marx as under thu benighted capitalists.

Normally a human teing has about 7,500 white blood cells in every cubic millimeter of blood. In tlv_> condition called leukemia the white blood cells increase very rapidly in amount and may reach figures of from 100,030 t'-> 1.000,000 white blood cells for every cubic millimeter of blood. As the white blood cells increase, the red bleed cells decrease and tile ltd coloring matter of the red blocd cells breaks down. Under such conditions death usually follows.
