If he had merely li; been sent to bed without his supper he _•• could have posed as a hero. But being ,^£ spanked . . . T^ie,.sdw that was Greece '•-•• and the grandeur that was Koine ar=n I ' -any more obsolete than the hero that ;'•! was Billy Jones or Johnny Smith. Perhaps the blows are given lightly. But that has little to do with the case. •-. It is the very fact that they are given ' which humiliates and grieves the ersl- '.' while gay, brave victim. This same'principle applies to the ". • older breakers of graver laws. Punish. riient is so much more personal when it .' is done with a whipping machine. It . makes the one who is being punishsd 7 feel like a culprit instead of a bandit king. Many claim that the very fact that - whipping breaks the spirit, of a person •• is proof enough that there should be a - hands-off ruling. A spirit that rides ••:_ rough shod over other's rights and ~ privileges certainly needs to be curbed. iOUT OUR WAY If some all-wise way of loading it into tisjful channel.*, without lliu whipping post humiliation, could he fount! no one would object. But if it can't, a few strokes of a paddle, if thuy will prevent the murder of dozens of rospt'ctalilc, useful citizens, really ain't hi' such a hrul Ihiiip. Besides, no one ovtr goes to a wood- flied unless lie luis broken n rule, If whipping is s» dreadful it will be f. mighty good ounce of prevention. And the spanked parties will have the consolation of know lliat it really is hurting the stale worse to take that means' of bringing them back in xtcp than it is (he victims. For we don't want In go backward again. \Ve would much rather reason with the erring oiu?. Hut they won't listen. —Helen Welshimor. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 191-1 SIDE GLANCES, By George Clark tfZP&ZZ r ****fi n ("i/vK Doctors ill tmcr^encics The doctors ilsc to heroic heights in lime of emergency. There hus never been an epidemic, a dfsastcr, nor any yre;il ciiciinislanco calllmj for medical and Liirtilcnl ulcl beyond 'ihc ordinary in v/Iiich tiio inedii'iU i»rofe.s5io]i Ins not distinguished Itself. Th? drontl) emergency is no exception. News come to us from Arkansas that the doctors of that state have gh'en tremendously of their services mid their equipment to aid the suffering. Says Dr. C. W. Garrison, state health, officer. "They've gone the limit; they've given 'their services, they've- given their drugs. They even have mortgage:! their homes to gel.funds tha!, would enable them to keep on helping o'.hcr victims of I ITU drouth. Some of them have so Impoverlshci themselves that their families nve actually eoinf hungry. It they weren't proud they would be in the bread lines. "If they don't get financial aid they won't be able to ccnlinuc. There's not a chnnce tlinl any ol their patients will be able .to pay them." . ' It Is a similar story to the epic of the doc- tars oi Hi? yellow favor epidemics of the 1670 ciccndo. Throughout tho south in those dicnd limes the''doctors gave their all. Many of liicm were martyrs. All of them suffered In ccnsectncnce of their loyalty and courage. These Arkansas doctors who are sacrificing themsshci fcr the 'relief of pain and dlssa^e In their (•(immunities arc virtually all country doctors, already celebrated In song and story for their virtues 'in limes o! calm anil in times of stress. But the city doctors arc capable of the same self-sacrifice and fortitude. The whole profession recognizes its obligation nf service to suffering humanity. No one group cf doctcra is less nuarc of it than anu'.hcr. In tlie cities mnny members of the profession could cite' us of dally works lliey tlo for the s!ck and destitute, lor which lliey receive no other compensation tlmn (he recompense of satisfaction that the high humanitarian obligation of the profession and the Individual's own awareness of it have bcjn met. If appropriations arc not to be made for food for the hungry, tiiere should at leas! bo state recognition of. tin value of medical services in this emergency. Drugs and medicines should be provided by the state or by the government, and the doctors, unequalled in importance at this time, should be allowed compensation for the services which they civ,- so willingly. —Commercial Aupcul.
