Glamour of Banditry Hides a Futile L\jt The more one reads about the frantic flight of Dillinger and his crow, the more one discovers that this business of being a notorious and badly wanted gunman cnii't be a great deal of fun. On the surface, the life seems to h»vc a s-eneer of romance and excitement. Underneath it must be a lot mor? trouble than it is worth. Read the stories told by those citizens who have, against their own will, come into contact with the hunted men for a time.. Unanimously, they testify to strained nerves, to eternal vigilance, to a tension that can never be relaxed. Every car that approaches may carry the end of everything behind its windshield. Every sudden noise at night may be the signal for the last spatter of bullets. Every stranger who conies near may be the Nemesis; every tiny accident may. be the break that will destroy the whole scheme. And under all this there ia nothing : but complete futility. ' For by this time all plan and all •'••• reason has left the fugitives' eam- ^paign. Originally there was some sort of pattern to this life of sudden forays and mad, reckless flights. H was a way - of life that might be dangerous and desperate, but there was a more or ; les3. regular, rhythm to it. - '' . : JBtit not now. It has changed into an aimless, helter-skelter chase that can •'have no end, a melodrama that: can,; not filially resolve itself, into pejtce and quiet,, but that must .be carried on until some more accurate burst of gunfire finally brings, the down the last .". curtain. * * * All this is pretty obvious, to be sure. But most of us have a sneaking and ! perverse imp of the imagination tucked away somewhere that makes us see ourselves in an outlaw's place; and " from that human failing there arises a misplaced and mawkish sympathy which, in the enti, can become a source : of refuge for the man who has delied society. That sympathy tends to persist as long as we can see the outlaw as a gay and dashing fellow living a bold and carefree life. '; But it dies out when we get a look To Be Remembered Few public men in American history occupy a niche quite like the one reserved for the late William H- Woodin. A great many others have stepiwd into important jobs in time of stress and acquitted themselves well; but none of_tbem ever brought quite that combination of jaunty and unworned good humor to the job—and never WMS that particular quality so badly needed as it was in Mr. Woodin's case. We all had the jitters, when Mr. Woodin took over the treasury secre- taryship; we had them bad, and the whole stream of finance seemed to have turned into a' horrible whirlpool. Ami there, all of a sudden, was Mr. Woodin, perpetually smiling an ellln lillle smile, and being so happy and high-spirited about things that he suddenly hud us persuaded that things weren't so bad after all. He banished our jitters, in other words, simply by showing that he didn't have any jitters himself. We owu him a good deal for that job. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark CHURCH EXCUSE FAITH.

Named Russian Church Head BLYTHEVILLE 10 YEARS AGO Fron IkcfllM «( the Hjibnftlt Dally Future Flight I'rof. Auguste 1'iccard, Hie dauntless Belgian who Hies up into the stratosphere for recreation, believes that man may some day solve the problem of interstellar travel and make round trips to the moon or lo some of the planets. It is his notion that, tins may become possible, not through the use of rocket engines or by tiring huge projectiles from gigantic guns, but through discovery of the .secret of disintegrating matter. He says that the disintegration of 120 pounds of lead, for instance, would provide ample energy for a routu^ trip from the Earth to the planet Mercury. Now all this doubtless sounds remarkably like a pipe-dream, and it probably shows that scientists, no less than other men, have moments in which their imagination goes on the loose. But it makes a nica picture, anyway. Ui/.zy or- otherwise, it's something to look forward to. . .

OUT OUR WAY "n By Williams WATCHtN'A BARKS PAINTER A!NT SO QUEER—WHAT'S QUEER IS THAT THEM'S TH' VERY C3UVS WHO GET MAP IF THEY HEAR TH'SAME JOKE.OR PIECE OF MUSICTWICG IN ONE EVEN IN'. Editor, Journal of the AmcrU.m Medical Association, and of lly teia, Ihe Health Magazine; , Your skin is living tissue—nol only Just an envelope which .ctiv- rs your body. Hence, like the olh- r living tissue of which the human being is composed, the Ei;iii ends to regulate fattly.. well •'• its own condition. Most people have found that with a reasonable iiinounl ;'ui cleanliness, the sklu gets along quite well. Because of this' they try to treat their own enscs of the skin or any danuiio which muy occur to it, wlinoii realizing that neglect sometime: may be fatal, and without rcaliv. 1»B Ihut Hie medicine may do more harm than if nothing' were applied. Thus, in older -people a cauce may begin as a small ulceri spot or us ft small .lump injj breast. Any attempt to treat a lesion with ah oitu'niunt or is a form ol neglect which in instances will result, fatally. Indiscriminate use of ' or lotions for relief of all forts of facial blemishes, skin diseases, superfluous hair, itching, .wealing, burning and similar symptoms is almost certain to lend to trouble. Some of the common remedies lor athlete's foot damage the skin so severely Ihat the condition spreads instead of being eliminated. Although many reincdles used for sii|>erilnous hair work for a while, others are strong poisons and can produce exceedingly serious symptoms. One of the drujs for sui>crfluous hair has already been reported as causing cases of paralysis and inflammation of. the nerves. * • . • • * Among Ihe substances most' frequently used on the skin is cold cream. Certain skins are ,MV ;dry that extra crcnm must be rubbed in to keep Ihem pliable and llexl- ble. Here, however, it is unnecessary to have any fancy compound. The simple cold cream that is included in the United States Pharmacopoeia is as good as any. Most blemishes of tlie skin are not due to something in the skin llself or .something coining from without, but due lo the pwr condition ot the blood of the iwrson concerned. Resistance of ihe skin is broken down by bad habits of diet nnd of cleanliness. Good hygiene with plenty of and exercise nnrt with n reasonable amount of cleanliness ill be as good for pimples and ml can be rubbed upon the skin Monday, May 5, 1«4 Mrs. King Matthews was declared the wlncr of the bis Willys- Knlglil coupe sedan at the close of the Courier's subscription cam paign Saturday night.
