A Worthwhile ksue .liclnlcdly, but still ahead o£ iiny of i hi;; opponents, Curl ISailoy has introduced a rwil issue into Ihu (fiibcnuUoi'- ial camiiiiigii. "As your Kovornoi 1 ," declared Mr. Uailoy, siiwikinjr last iiinliL at HI Dorado, "[ shall use nil tlui powers ill ray command to bring about enactment of legislation thai will insure; of- feelive aiid pcrmiuicnl civil service for slate employes." The current campaign has made il plain that there is nothing that, Arkansas needs more. For all mallei's pertaining to the welfare and progress of the .state Iwve been obscured by a disgraceful scramble to hold or win places on the public payroll. The revenues of the state, levied for the ostensible purpose of carrying on essential public services, are the prize for which the candidates arc lighting. And in their anxiety to win it they have forgotten almost everything else. A civil service law \vhicli would put state employment on a merit basis and in.surc permanency of tenure for honest and efficient slate employes without respect lo their polities would icsnlt in bettor public service, would end the , biennial campaign fund "shakedown" of state jobholders, and - would force candidates for governor to campaign on real issues instead of relying for support chiefly on patronage iH-omiscjj,- • ' i'As- cvicjeiiic of his r gbod faith it would lie we'll for Jlr. Uailoy further to define his position. Docs he propose, to fill the stale departments with his own supporters and then seek enactment of a civil service law to protect them in their .jobs? Such a procedure would be worse than nothing. The next administration would be amply justified in throwing it ovcr- • board and starling the old patronage system over again. But if JTr. liailey proposes to keep all, or all but the most conspicuously incompetent,' of present employes in their jobs until a civil service law can be enacted ami the machinery for its operation can be set up, and then force job holders and job seekers alike to submit to honest competitive examinations, with the jobs to go to those who show themselves best qualified, then he is ottering Arkansas something which it should grasp with enthusiasm. OUT OUR WAY BLVTHEV1LLE, (ARKJ COURIER NEWS To the County Farm A reader suggests that inasmuch as the lines imposed upon drunkards usually punish their families more than the offenders themselves, a wiser course iniglil be lo send them to the county farm. The family of even the most no- iiceount of men will usually mortgage- its last, possessions to pay his line. If Iho penalty were a term on Die farm they would be spared this sacri- liee and the offender would undergo punishmonl of a type Ihr.l might cause him to think twice before get- ling into trouble again. \Vc think the suggestion is sound, particularly as respects habitual offenders. It may wl, always be practicable, from the standpoint of county finances, to send drunks lo Ihe farm, but with cotlon picking season coming on it would seem thai profitable employment couM be found Ihcrc for a considerable number of them. From Law lo Lcauenworlli Denver's dapper criminal lawyer, Hen 13. Laska, locked the doors of his spacious office suile the other day and started under guard for 10 years in heaven worth penitentiary. All appeals having failed, the attorney is in federal prison because he took §10,000 of the $200,000 Charles Orsehel ransom money as a fee for defending Albert Dates, one of the abductors of the millionaire oil man. Thus is chalked up fl ,-cal victory for the public. Hates and his accomplice, George Kelly, used machine suns in the Urschcl kidnaping, but I-aska resorted to a craftier weapon— his skill as a lawyer. If ever a sentence ought lo stick, this is one.

Recently some Cincinnati physl- clivns decided to lesl scientifically the aclual value of rest in bed in hastening recovery from the common cold. They wanted to find out whether people who went lo bed promptly got well quicker, and also whether they had more or fewer complications from the common colds than did those who did not go lo bed promptly. As experimental .subjects, the doctors choi'e nurses, because the girls could be kept under the same living conditions and given tin- same kind of food, ami also would be under adequate control during Ihc period of the investigation. » * * You should realize, of course, Mini the danger froai a common cold arises primarily from the complications, ralher than- from Ihc cold itself. The complications most proml- iicnl are infections of Ibe sinuses, nose, and cars, abscesses of the tonlls, bronchitis and pneumonia. Using these complicalions, as n lest the doctors discovered thai 11.3 per cent of Hie patients who, went lo bed promptly when they] caught a cold, developed complications, as against 67.4 ;per ceni of those who delayed going io bed until the cold was fully developed. There would seem, 'rom these figures, - to be no question that early resort to bed is of great value in minimizing severity o; the common cold, and in reducing the number of complications. * » t To test the severity of a cold, careful records were kept of the time that cln|Kcd between the onset of the coid and the patient's arrival at the hospital, tlic number of days spent in Ihe hospital, the patients with fever, the duration of the illness, and the less in weight.. Iu general, ail the figures slightly favored those who went lo bed promptly, although the difference; in somc cases were so small as to be considered insignificant. It must be borne in mind that complications, which occur five limes ns frequently in those who do not go to bed as in those who do, may be largely responsible for the duration of disability resulting from the cold. There are, of course, many people who do not go to bed at ni:, but who work right through an attack of the common co'.d. No doubt a comparison of persons who go directly to bed with tlv/su who do not go to bed at all, when afflicted with a common cold, would be greatly in favor of Ilia rested group.

Aimee, Ihe hoslcss, in her nmiablo way cornered Bill and made him help with the fire. It was a task ho enjoyed. There had been six years since he had last experienced the clear trwg of the norih woods. After so long in a city oflicc, the kindling of a name under the stars wilh pine slicks was an incredible adventure. Ann watched him closely as he attended lo the fire. The tired lines under his eyes seemed somehow io have been erased. In (he reddish glow his white face was like thai of a blond Viking, looking over a brazier of coals on the prow of a ship. He had dressed 'for the part of the fire-tender. He wore an old gray flannel shirt and dungarees. His feet were encased in n species of ancient sandal. In front of Ihc flames his open throat was like a rugged column. It was n revelation to Ann. Tiie oilice worker had vanished, and William \V-M-c had become n ro- manlic"i>crsonage in his own right like that Viking she imagined' When lie rolled up his sleeves she saw well-developed muscles in his arms. Evidently he kept fit in the city. At intervals Ann saw Bill's eyes following the languid young bond salesman who had somehow monopolized her for this evening She remembered Bill's hurt look when lie had first seen her with another man at the hotel. But Bill hadn't had a chance to talk with her alone. * t K J.p got his chance when'Ann walked down lo the sandy beach lo rub sand in the skillet and clean it—this being regarded as a feminine Job. Bill caught up with her, as she dipped her hands into Ihc sands. "Let'me do Hint," he' said, his eyes shining-wilh \hc glint of the moonlight on the water. A moment later, busily scouring Ihe vessel with sand, he lurned and said, "Who is that guy you're with? I mean—what is he?" "I think' ho sells bonds, or something o£ the sort," she said. "Oh!" "He used to play foofbci! at Princeton. That is, before he was married." "I used to box st college. It was a small middle-western school. But you say he's married?" Bill faced her wilh large nilft nirnt- ° ' hurt eyes. Ann laughed. "Don't bo . n o shocked. And don't look so indignant." '13ul—but lie's married!"

Ann got up and .vent back to the fire, and joined T .efty Ponds. Lcfly askcrl, "Who is the boy friend with whom you've been exchanging confidential words?" "Oh, just a boy I met in the travel office back in the city," she said. "He sold me this vacation. He thinks lie goes wilh il." I.efly was a little indignant. "Well, he had cheek, I must say! He talked as though ho had known you a million years." "I think he means well," Ann said. "And I don't think he's had much time for the amenities—the little things he should know about courtship and girls." "We/!, tell him not lo practice on ,yo«," Lefty said hotly. "This was lo ho my evening with you Lets leave this crowd and go on reserve. And please, don't exclusive!" said some place else." "No. No," Ann said. 'I couldn't ' • -"«\i. 1 lULIIUIL L do thai.
