Quick Action Is Needed We hope thai Rup. Tilmnn R. Parks of the seventh Arkansas congressional district and any others who may share his views concerning (he ?20,000,000 compromise- drouth relief loan bill will take the advice of the Arkansas legislature and accept the ?20,000,000. It may not be everything that might be desired, but it provides very siibslan- . tiat help. Certainly the §20,000,000 now is a' whole lot to be preferred to anything that might be forthcoming as the result of. a congressional dogfight lasting until next summer. If we sense at all the sober judgment of the thoughtful people of this state if is that adequate credit to permit something approaching normal agricultural operations is the real need, and that with such credit charity on a wholesale scale, always a dangerous and demoralizing thing, will not be necessary. In accepting the $20,000,000 compromise Senators Robinson and Caraway may have accepted defeat of their earlier demands, but they have won a genujne victory for Arkansas. The thingi now is to get the bill passed so that the money can be made available as quickly as possible and those who need it can get off the Red Gross and go to work. Not Very Encouraging wants to retain an unquestioning and child-like faith in the workings of democracy in the modern state is advised to pay very little attention to the mayoralty campaigns in bur two largest cities. At its last election New York gave a stupendous majority to a young man whose chief qualification seems to be that he is amiable, dapper, very well dressed and unusually quick nt repartee. And now .in Chicago we can see a mayor who wants a fourth term seek it,- apparently, on the theory that all one needs- to do is provide a good show for the populace. In neither ,casa is the spectacle at all encouraging. New York has its Jimmy Walker; Chicago has its Big Bill Thompson. The bclicvar in democracy can hardly get much norishment out of either situation. OUT OUR WAY The Road Hog's Record The "road hog" has been a nuisance since automobiles became common. \Ve never cjuiie realized what a real menace he is, however, until we saw an analysis of traffic accidents recently issued by thu Travelers Insurance Company. Of more than 500,000 traffic accidents in I9UO, the insurance olVicials found, 68 per cent were caused by drivers who were guilty of one of these three faults — refusing to give ihc right of way to the car that should have had it, exceeding the speed limit, or driving on the wrong side of the road. Those are the three cardinals of the road hog. Last year they caused more than 38'l,000 accidents, in which nearly 1G.OOO lives were lost. No more damning evidence of the high price we pay for hoorishness on the highway could imssibly be presented. A Good Move President Hoover's action in moving to substitute a civilian government for the existing naval government in the' Virgin Islands ought to meet with wide approval. It is not criticizing the America!! navy in the least to say thai such island possessions should be given civilian government wherever possible. Governing .such lands calls for economic and social abilities J.hut the navy, in the nature of things, cannot exercise. The Virgin Islands became American property by purchase in 1917, and were expected to become an important naval base—for which reason they 'were put in the navy's charge. For a long time, however, it lias been obvi- oufj that the navy docs not purpose to establish a base there, and the change to civilian rule has become advisable. In Dr. Paul II. Pearson of Swarthmore, President Hoover seems to have found a good man fur the job of governor. The new administration probably will find solutions for many of the islanders' most, pressing problems. Unlike niosl fighters, however, asking for a return engagement. isti'l Women are poor losers—\vhen il comes to dieting. Some New York magistrates, like a third- string ballplayer, seem to serve no other beneficial purpose limn warming tlie bench. It is no Indication a (sinner- Is domestic merely because lie belongs to the sowing circle. Tin Pan Alley Is said to b? csipltnll/lng me latest Hollywood Incident, with a new nine: "Kcnton on (lio Keys." At least, the Tully-Gllhert, Kcalon-Kcys altercations have given certain Hollywood stars opportunity to view brighter constellations. An anthropologist claims thai Adam was n Chlnamnu.

SIDE GLANCES By George Clark TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1931 erculosis and today the tuberculosis rate lor adolescent girls Is increased, whereas the rates In . tuberculosis for all other %roups are steadily • decreasing. The adolescent girls of loday are tho mothers of the future. Bodies weakened by malnutrition give birth to children even less able to resist and to overcome the vicissitudes oJ life. Fathers and mothers begin with Hie cnnccptjon of the child to plan ((r its future. At such times they arc lllwly to open a savings account not only to meet the expenses of childbirth but also In order that the child may have something to carry It through (lie adolescent y.iarc. It Is Just as important that the mother begin to open In her own body a physical sayings account for the growth and development of the infant. She mu*t watch her diet, she must scrutinize her activities In order that everything that she may contribute to the production of a sound Infant will be contributed. No longer should tlie physician or the obstetrical specialist be called only In the emergency of Hie moment. He should be consulted just os soon as the mother realiz;?s that she is to have a child- All of this Is covered by Ilic subject of prenatal care. It is the means ol preventing many deaths ol mothers and infants. "Make out to him like I'm awfully popular and I'm just accepting this date because you talked me into it."

A member of the Senate banking a:id currency ccmmillee, he is serving on the Glass sub-committee ftliU'h is Investigating the national banking laws. While scrvlnf in the House, — 1911 to 1015 — Bulkley helped! write tlie Federal Reserve net 'and his examination ot witnesses has demonstrated liis bvoiil knowledge o( HID subject. Disclissin; the in-1 vesliBHtlon, Bulklcy ir.rtk-.ned why; he considered liie work uf more; moment than wet sprcchrs nt a! time when the wets are virtually powerless. "Thcic's nothing "'lOr. 1 hnpor-j tunt." lie declared, "bif.i-.isc thci whole question of nnllonal prosperity is directly involved.

Makes Many Friends Bulkley. has been making many friends. Although t\e Is a million^ aire, he is the. type of man who docs. Both conservatives and progressives en the Republican side of the aisle speax well of him. He dresses plainly, sometimes almost slouchlly, and talks genially and frankly to everyone. ' He- haj a chauffeur, but driver, his own car, as i:e did when campaigning, in Ohio last fall. He lives in a large house on lower 16th street with Mrs. Bulkley and a 12-year-old daughter Katherine. The. Bulk- leys arc.poptilar in Washington society. The senator enjoys music; In. Cleveland he was one of Ihc sponsors of the Metropolitan'Opera seasons. He is on three Senate committees. Those besides banking a(K currency are manufactures anc privileges and elections. • Both are | important, the latter especially I when there's a question about u senator's right lo a seat. Speaking again oi Bulkley and prohibition—the issue which first brought him before Ihc country in a hig way—Bulkley Is one of that esoteric group which read tlie Wickcrsham report all the way through- And one who thought there were "many sensible tilings" in the report, .bull thai the conclusions and recommendations-'looked silly when compared with the rest ol it. Fnvors Helical 'Tm flatly for repeal." 'the Eena- lur says. "I wouldn't resisl a revision' tliat would let tlie, -federal government protect the dry states from smuggling across their borders, but the Icdci'iil 'government shouldn't, have Hie job of enforcing state laws internally. "I (liink it is becoming more and mere clear that lliis administration, with regard to enforcement, is just letting things ride. The Wickcr- sham report, ol course, was used a a stall. Neither the president or the Department of Justice is going to do a single thing to carry oul t^i~ recommendations which the Wickerslinm commission made in the interest of belter enforcement The administration people In tlu Scnaic have been perfectly content to fiddle away with the Ho well bill for the District ot Columbia, which everybody knows can't, become a law." ATTACK ON LANCASTER On Feb. 10, 1C70. one of the bloodiest assaults of king Philip's War took place when Philip, in company with his allies,-the Ifip- mucks, attacked Lancaster, Mass. * Fiske, the historian vividly describes (he sssault: ''On the.10th of that month, at sunrise, the Indians came swarm- Ing into the lovely village, Danger had ajready been apprehended, the pastor, Joseph Ro'wlandton, the only Harvard graduate of'165?, had gone to Boston to solicit aid, and Captain Wadsivorth's company was making Us may irorrt Msirjborough, but the Indians were beforf/iand.

Mother said that was all bosh, that there were other ways just as good. Now as far as I can see. It does not make such a lot of difference and some- time for the sake of harmony and to get ourselves started Into Church again I almost feel like telling Jce I'll go with him. And then Mother—for I must tell her—says "No, wait." Though we may drift entirely away from the Church and the things It stands for it is better that I stick to my rals- •ought say shocking massacre at Medfleld'and | Ing-Mather thinks. ,rrt.

As long as we can't agree Joe don't feel like joining without me and I don't feel like—well, I simply can't see it his way. I was talking to one of our Church men the other nay and he said he would tike to see us in } I Church, but if my husband would not go with me it would be better lor me to go with him than not go at all. If we kept on we would finally lose all inlerest and would not even argue about Church; and that we were hurting the finest thing God and His Son, Jesus, had given the world.
