War Lesson Written In Spanish Blood Wllh . the horror of the Spanish revolution now .spread ovur more than a mouth, some o I' its lessons are he- Eimiinjf to appear, written in letters of blood. Tlie only possible benefits in a war of lliis kind is the possibility the rest of us rimy learn something from it. And while it is too early for the lessons of the Spanish civil war to be in final form, certain outlines already are becoming evident. First, it is ".gelling to be increasingly clear that whoever controls the air forces, controls the country. As this is written, it begins to look as though Hie fine gallantry of the loyalists in the Gnadarrama mountains, the desperate defense of/the rebels iii the Ali'imnr, the massacre of thousands of helpless ones on both sides, luivc been all wasted. Final coiilroi may well pass to thai side which controls the air, and in thai regard the rebels seem to have the edge. • • Most of the air force revolted with the rebels. Those airmen who remained loyal at Madrid were of such doubtful loyally thai few coidd be trusted to fly against the rebels, lest they desert. Moroccan troops were ferried by airplane across . lite blocked Mediterranean in driblets until they became a rebel army. Kebcl planes now bomb (he very airport of Madrid, and the bcldest stroke against Toledo's b<\- sicga! Alcazar has been live bombing by loyalist planes. Who controls the air force, then, cculrols the country. And controls also the foreign influence of thai country, as witness -Mussolini's forcing of Italy into first-class company, largely through his huge and prepared air force. Britain's frantic effort to build up her own sky strength shows belated recognition of this fact. Another thing begins to be clearer as each day passes. Whoever wins the Spanish fight inherits a corpse. The death of thousands of the finest young men in Spain is a loss from which the country cannot recover within generations. The loss of for- eig nlrade incident to the shutting down of industries and the hamstringing of exports may never be overcome. , Customers quickly loam to go else- where for products which they have been unable to gel during the revolution. Skilled labor has been spilled out bloodily in the campaign. Stocks of goods, productive pliuits, have been destroyed. Whichever side wins will face not on r ,y a smoldering O|f;>o!;ifion, conquered but not convinced, breathing revenge with every breath and, with rifles hidden under beds, awaiting opportunity to light again. It will also face n prostrate country, its industry • crippled, il s trade in ruins, its best and finest young men under ground. —Hruce Cation. I 1 our Bank Robbers There were four bank roburra in 'the Arkansas penitentiary. One wns granted a Kerii's of seven furloughs. Ho fulled to return when the seventh expired, and (hen MIITO were three. Next there wers none, anil the cseape of three desperate convicts was blamed on Hie fur- loiighccl fourth, believed |>y Uic prison authorities to have engineered the break. Human lives were endangered In each of the robberies for which these men wore convicted, tin one case, a bank cashier and hb family were kidnaped by Hie 'escaping rubber.) Ui-es of peace oiricm were imperilled to make the arrests. (In one case the man was captured only after a BIIII battle lasting more tluin nn hour.) The funds of heavily taxed counties were drawn on to Indict nnd try the robbers and send them to the penitentiary. Then all that had been done for the protection of society was undone. All four robbers were . i\t large again. The nirlouglicd convict—the bank robber suspected of having mndc it possible for three oilier bank robbers to Bain their liberty-has in Iho last 17 years tan sentenced to 61 years' Imprisonment for crimes mnglii',' from bwvKlnry to the murder o! a police olflcer. His police and court record", going back to IDia, includes felony sentences in Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, prison escapes in Kansas and Arkansas, a violated parole in Kansas, ai'.d an Indefinite furlough In Arkansas after only n few years of a 21-ycar-sentence for murder had been .served. All this previous l>> (lie 15-year bank robbery sentence Imposed In 1031 nnd made little more than a formality | ;y the series of 10, 20, 31) and 00-diy rurloiujlis which began In May. IMS. h The people of Arknnsas must wonder why a bank robber with such a record was considered a IK subject for so generous an allotment of furlonijhs. They must likewise wonder how the. Inwr is going to protect society when such a record can be made. IncWenlally. one of the bank robbers who'' racapcd Tuesday nlghl has had nine .short furloughs since lie l: CS an to serve his 21-year sentence in 1932. n c is the robber wlui kid- naped the bank cashier nnd his family and according to I'cnilcniiary Superintendent, Cos- bill l:o robbed a party cf tourists near Lonokc during one of ills furloughs. —Arkansas Gazette.

Actually a pain or 'disturbance n the abdominal urea may be due o one or more of innumerable iiuiscs, and it Is well to know fliat is wrong before endeavoring o dcveloi) any single, line of tveat- nent. A sensation of fullness, or vcight, may be due cither (o a ici'vous condition or the presence of an ulcer.

In other cases, it may l,c associated with inllanmwtlon oC the lungs, if a feellnj! of severe nausea and .vrnkncss accompanies (lie pain, here may be an associated dis- iiirbance ot the blood, which Is Tar more serious than the pain Isclf. Development of gas in the bowels or in the stomach frc- luently is n cause of pain nn( | ] r _ 'itailoii, as well as nausea. .Some- lines this Is swallowed gas due to the fact that the jmtlcnl eats too rapidly and swallows a good deal of air at the lime of eating. In other instances. lh e gas develops from foods or because of some actual physical change in lhe lining of the stomach, or in lhe intestines. In many cases in which persons liave a sense of fullness or disten- Mon in tile stomach aflcr taking a very small quantity of food it is found that the stomach has failed to relax as it should when :he fowl is swallowed. Occasionally this sense of full- ncjs Is due lo ealinn too rapidly and chewing the food insufficiently. * « * Belching of gas 1:, more likely lo accompany an ulcrr of the stomach than it is inflammation of the gnllblndfcr. yc- inflammation of the gallbladder mnj , g [ VC all the symptoms usually associated with sonic disturbance of the stomach or of the digestion Occasionally a pain' in the abdomen may actually l )e rin c to inflammation of the bones of HID spine.

Many persons complain particularly of such pains after a few tccih have been extracted for some definite cause. A persistent pain should never lie neglected. A recurring pain should never be neglected.

E Virginia's re;issuranco, Judith found it difficult lo slop her sobbing. "I—I always thought I could be sane about something like thib, .Tndilh faltered. "But now I— I'm just realizing what Steve means to rrve r ." Virginia palled her shoulder. "Sure, I linow. But right now you've got to snap out of it. The rest of the girls will ho popping in here in a minute, and you can't let them see you like this. Come on, buck up." Judith nodded. With an effort she straightened and went to the washsland. While Virginia-stood guard at lhe door, Juditii bathed her face in cold water. When she had finished, Virginia left the door and stood in front of her. "Now you're all right, Judith. A little powder and some rouge now. And," she dived into her bag, "a cignref. Here." She inserlecl the cigaret between Judith's trembling lips, held tip a light. "You're a peach, Virginia." The other shook her hear!. "Don't pin any wings on me, darling. I'm enjoying myself. Know why? Because I've looked forward to this break for a long time. It's the most sensible thing you've done in about three years." "Do yon really believe that?" Judith tried to smile. "I not only believe it, but I know it. ,lnsl forget Steve Fowler, and you'll be all right in a month—or less. Never see him again." "B-bnt he's coming to the apartment tonight." Virginia's mouth fell open "Coming to the apartment! J thought you were through?" "I am through," Judilh insisted. "But we—we were out there on the sidewalk and Steve said we couldn't just finish it like that H did seem queer , , , after four years." * * * J7 OR a moment Virginia said nothing, but her glance held Plenty ot meaning. At last she spoke. "Judith, you're a donble- barrcjed sap ( about that man. Hero yon get yourself all worked up to a clean break, and then you spoil "What do yon mean?" "I mean you should have left linn finally there on the sidewalk, if you sec him again, you'll have everything | 0 do over again " Judith shook her head. "I'm not bluffing, Virginia." "Of course you're not. But J know what love can rio lo a gal. All her brains ooze out jnlo her heart, and then anylhing can happen. She stopped a moment. Then: "Listen, Judith, will you resent it if I help you out of this? ' "But I don't need help." "Let me be the judge of that.

I'll drop in with Bol) and we'll make a liltte party of it. Of. course we'll pretend we don't know anylhing's up." Judilh was silent, meeting Virginia's suspicions gaze. "I want lo see him alone for a few minutes, Virginia. I'll let him know that my lalk today wasn't a spur of the moment thing. You and Bob drop over about 9." "All right," said Virginia resignedly. "But we'll bring Toby Lynch along. He's the life of anv party, and he'll Ihr.v.- out any icicles yon and Sieve may have hung around the room before we get there." How Judith got through her afternoon's work she \voulrt never quite know. As she had told her friend, she had always believed that in ? siluatinn !ik c u,i s she could be sane and frmiblc But apparently that liad been because subconsciously, she'd believed loo long il could never Iwiipen to her During the past few nidntlis when the logic of her brain had begun to lcl1 j icr "'"I H might happen, she nad ignored lhe warning.

"Judith did." said Virginia ','She sold Steve Fowler short, and came out 'way ahead." 'No!" He looked at Judith sympathetically. "Say, that's too bad!

"Well," he began again, altempl- ing a laugh, "easy come, easy go, Judith." caught a glimpse ot Judith's, face and quickly .'ecrcd the convcrsalion inlo safer channels. To all appearances, Judith had temporarily forgotten the matter by the lime they reached the apartment building where both' (he. Bents and Judith Howard lived. "Better have dinner with us tonight," Virginia invited her as the trio went up in the automatic lift. Judith shook her head. "Thanks .1 lot, hut I've some food left over from yesterday — and my frugal New England nature won't let it chance spoiling." Bob was about to suggest that they pool their kitchen resources, but it occurred lo him iir the nick of time that, under the circumstances, Judilh might prefer to have dinner alone. He was correct— partly. For while Judilh dirt want to be alone for a while, she touched nothing in the way ot food. Once inside her little apartment she dropped her hat and coal on a chair and sank wearily on lhe davenport. Siic sat there, not moving. She sat there, hardly thinking. It was as if a part of her had died. Then gradually, as the fatigu of the day wore off, she began to think again ot her life with Sla phcn Fowler. H seemed such a large part of her life, this part she had spent with him almost always in her thoughts. And when she told herself, "It was onlj to > years . . . and with every ho those four years will grow le important," she could not 'icil' believe it. |, Judilh rose at last, bathed li \ face in cold water and shpp into a cool frock. She had bu ly finished dressing when Siev. ring at the door startled her. 11 i lessly. she went to the dooi i { opened it. ' "Hello, Steve." He looked at her closely ns I* came in, but said nothing.
