Thero is nothing juiiticularly iiik consistent or surprising about that. The Commercial Appeal has several times expressed its admiration for the . "leadership" of Gov. Harvey Pfirnell. Anybody wt]o .thinks Harvey Parndl ' is a leader cannot be blained for ac- : cepting without question or discrimina- '._ txin the . governor's po-ition on the : -amendments. ! ;But if our leader, Harvey Parnell, ; and his lead;r, Justin Matthews, and certain other leaders who are in turn . tho leaders of the editor of the Comi m'ercia! Appeal, really wish that eminent journal to ,fxe)rcise any leadership in Arkansas politics, they ought to see , that it informed itself a little bit about what : it talks about. , .Last .'Friday, .for instance, the- Commercial. Appeal urgdt} the defeat of all but-one of the "eleven proposed amendments" .to the Arkansas constitution; Now even Harvey Parnell knows better than that. Arkansas voters- who have learned to distinguish .betweai a constitutional amendment initiated act may be excused if • they ;refuse to take political lessons from Tennesaeans. who think-they are one and. th.?;'-iame thing... -.., ,.; .. . - ,. ._ ,,c •"' J h 'Time, space and energy are lacking for/any detailed answer here : to the ' Commercial Appeal's attack upon ;ten ' out of. eleven of our nine proposed amendments. Such an answer was made in yesterday's Arkansas Gazette, and ; we hope it came to the attention of many readers of th-a Courier News. One point i*ored by the Gazette, .however, is so good that we must re: peat,it. In -concluding its argument against -the amendments the Commfrcial Ap• pt'al expressed doubt that voters of • Arkansas "will take time to study these '. various amendments or have an umler- • standing of their significance." "At-, least," answered the Gazette, : "there is some doubt to that general ; purport and effect' as regards news• papers in Tcnnsssee." n NEWS r . ; : Don t Say Net- ' .Don't, Mr. Reader, say no to the Red Cross. ' Don't let the fact that you don't feel as prosperous us you might prevent you from parting with a dollar or two. You won't miss the money and it will be a real satisfaction to know that you have done something to help someone who really needs it. And above all don't let some prejudice or idle, piece of gossip stand between you and a contribution to a really worthy cause. Tiho Red Croes is not infallible. Sometimes it extends help to persons who perhaps could get along without it. Sometimes it may fail to help tf)'ose who ; are in genuine need.

Your correspondent <lces lot vouch for Us authenticity, but t illustrates the sort of stories people who know him like to tell ibout tlie secretary. The point Is, however, lhat such blc bureau chiefs in the department ns Mary Anderson of the Women's Bureau, Grace Abbot of the Children's Bureau and Ethelbsrt Stewart of the Bureau of I.-ntor Statistics have for years been al- owed lo do as much progressive, constructive work In their fields ns imitcd funds would permit. The Immigration Buremi has principally distinguished itself for its h.ird- boilcd attitude toward deportation of or admission of radical thinkers. The Coucllialiou Service sec!:i>; lo be regarded by labor leaders .is a , cially Hie prevalence of unemployment all through 1930, it might be supposed that the large amount ol discussion here about the secretary- ship might center on the idea of getting an expert qualified to tackle such problems! But there is probably no candidate who would be satisfactory to everyone. The nex secretary will be a Republican reasonably satisfactory to both laboi and is employers. If he is a labor leader he will have to be a conservative labor leader. In any event he will bc'permitled lo call some of labor's problems lo the attention of the country. Davis himself made freqquent speeches pointing out the increase o( technological unemployment and thi practice of many industries whicl release workers when they react middle-age. Once he even admitted (hat millions of persons were sub sisting on less income tlinn was re quired tor a decent standard of liv ing. On the other hand, Davis' de parlment, has issued misleading figures as to unemployment. It wa: responsible lor last winter's wceklj employment statements, hascrt on alleged surveys, which showed ai improvement, every week but al ways totaled up to a net decrcnsi in unemployment at the end of tin month.

The square diaper covi b a I good deal of the abdomen ar.-t is Jed cloth over the diaper, bin ino thcrs insist on using ilicm. Th chief objection Is thai lliere is tendency to irrlatlon ol the ski when rubber coverings are used. Dr. Smith believes that irrita tion Is just as freqiient without til waterproof covering as with it an that ii is due lo some irritatin substance in Hie excretions rath than the waterproof covering. A recent test 'WHS made in hospital ward In which six babic wor <iiai>ers covered with oilc muslin and six wore diapers no so covered. At the end of the wee the babies without the covering ha used more than four hundred dttlonnl pieces of laundry tin those with tlie coverings. :vforcover there was extra time required on the part of the nurses for changing the entire bed and Ihc children with tlie waterproof coverings were no more irritated than those without.
