The Highway Amendment Some friends of the CourUr News have accused us of inconsistency hc- Cfiiiio, while endorsing cinht proposed ami'nrimcnls to the ArUtmsiis cunsiitu- lion designed to reserve to the people rights now u;uil, or abused, by the legislature, \vu have expressed opposition to u ninth .•imendiiicnt, wliicli would give the pcopU the right of electing their 'state highway commissioners. ( i Well, we have licen guilty of worse crimes than inconsistency, and. are willing to 1:1 tlic indictment stand, if it means anything. Consistent or not we think there is sound reason in the position we have taken. We urge the, adoption of amendments 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26 and 27 b<- causc they will have the effect of taking from the state legislature certain powers which that body has misused. We urge tb; defeat of amendment 20 because it would have the cit'oct I'o creating something of the character of a new legislature, which ia something Arkan-as can ill afford. This bit of argument may appear so frivolous as to merit being thrown out of couil. We don't think so, but if you do, Mr. Header, forget it and lis- tui to this: The present state highway commi:-> sion in i.'.i iiolitics, where it doesn't belong, it has been accused of spending money out of proportion to .its accomplishments, autl.ihiM'o is £01113.jCgyiduncc to support the charge. But it has protected in th? past, and will continue to protect in the future, tiie rights and interests of the bonded counties of the slate, of which this is one. And it is free to carry on ii stats highway program without playing politics over every yard of concrete or load of gravel it puts down. We can think of nothing worse than the proposed elective commission nf seven members, Each representing a congres.donal district. No member would have any real interest in a state program, each would fight and trade to win some petty advantage for ths district on \whose s r otes he would depend for his job. The result could hardly bo better than chaos. The present highway commission OUT OUR WAY plan is right in principle, it is new. It 1ms not worked perfectly as yet. But there is every reason to hope that as the years pass the present type of comtni-fton will become more and more a highway commission and less and leas a political organization. To adopt amendment 20 would destroy any hope of such progress. Group Insurance The value of I he group plan of industrial life insurance in times of depression is strikingly shown in figures just issued by Vice President D. A. I'ajre of the. Travelers Insurance Company, who points out that the families of more 61,000 American workmen will receive this year more than $110,000,000 as hentilits under that form of insurance. Payment?, of benefits come through fho deatli by dboas: and accident of more than 51,000 workers and the permanent total disabilities suffered by 10,000 more. By the end of the year, Mr. Page points out, group in.suranc: plans will be in force> in more than 30,000 business concerns, with fully 7,000,000 workers protected. These figures speak for themselves. They represent a remarkable step forward in American industrial procedure. . A Windowless Factory The typical factory used to be a high l>rick building with blank, expressionless walls studded with small, dirty windows. More recently it became a combination of steel and glass, almost) as open to the sun as a green house. Now, apparently, it is about to undergo another change. The Austin Company, international engineers and builders, are building a radically different factory for the Simond.s Saw and Steel Company at Fitcliburg, Mass. The building will have no windows at all, nor will it have skylights; yet its designers believe it will provide more fresh air and better light for '}[?. workers than any factory yet constructed. ' lliihdmls' of thousamh-watt lamps ' will provide uniform illumination such as is not possible in window-lighted factories. Ventilation systems will keep the air pure and maintain a ocn- f.tant temperature. All machinery will be painted orange-color, and walls and ceiling -will be blue, green and white. It will be interesting to see if this sets, a new vogue for factory construction. John Gregg, Inventor of the shorthand system, has just married.

I Apparently the relative infre- jquency of Infantile paralysis In In' Innls under one year of age Is due in n considerable measure to the transmission of the substance which opposes Infantile paralysis from Hie mother to the Infant at birth, There was complete correspondence between mother and Infant In 10 out of 12 cases. It was found nlh'o thai the Immunity transferred from the mother to the chl!d Is not permanent. It tends to wear off so that by the time the child Is five years of age much of the 1m- 1 inunlty transferred from the mo- jlher may be lost. "Now enjoy your holiday, dear; and don't worry about us. We'll be back for you in an hour/' WASHINGTON LETTER HALLOWE'EN On Oct. 31, Hallowe'en, or All Hallow's Eve, Is celebrated. It | takes its name from All Saints' Day, the observance of which was instituted in the seventh century to commerornte the conversion of the Pantheon, or temple of all the gods, in Rome, into a Christian place of worship. • The traditional observance of ; Hallowe'en are survivals of an- Iclcnt superstitions and pagan festivals. The tradition of superstition is that this is Hie time when supernatural influences prevail and when spirits walk abroad. Many of the familiar customs of i Hallowe'en—the games and pranks of children and grown-ups, together with the ghostly talcs by the firelight—-spring directly from these beliefs. A book published In. 1611, called "The Pestyvall," mentions a custom obsolete even at that time.

Ench looked further Into the future than do the emergency measures of business and unemployment relief now contemplated by thi government. "The five-day week, without re- .duction in wages, must become universal and permanent In America In ordor to prevent future business depressions awl ploymcnt," said resulting nnrin- Scnator Wauon. By Williams "Every man under the Hag is <?n- j titled to a job. Government falls and falls unless all men have an equal opportunity lo work." Shorlcr Hours Needed Watson pointed to the displacement of 2,000,OM men by machines "within six years" and predicted Hint even after recovery from ihe present depression there would still ta a grcul army pf unemployed unless working hours were shortened. He promised to "spread the gospel birds, trees, flowers, fish, hcaiihy mental and physical development. .More Consumption Urged "All of this will result In consumption o[ more steel, copper, rubber, fabrics and materials of all kinds through greater, use of automobiles, garages, roads inns, camp- Ing paraphernalia and other things too numerous to mention. Economically th: increased consumption incident to the adoption o* a fivc- ,day week will result in sufficient savings lo enable, industry to pay the same wages for five days as are now paid for five and one-half days' work." The Democratic party, he said, could advance general application of the five-day week by adopting it In Government work and by declaring every Saturday a holiday.
