The Better Life Thankfully, values change, and many times for the better. it once WHS "rle rigueur" for example to identify one's home town with the nearest large city, Thus, a resident of Lonoke always was from Little Rock: the man who lived in La J-lalira Was from Los Antreles and the college student from East Milton never blinked in giving his hometown us Boston. But it simply no longer is fashionable tint! sometimes is not desirable to live in the city. For one thing, the problems of the city are so many, so diverse and so complex that many people despair of the cities' ever solv- them. In the meantime, life can be pretty dreary (for some people, in some cities, at some times). America again may be ready to resume its cooling romance with rusticana. At least part of the reasons for living 1 in Arkansas (or moving one's industry to Arkansas) is precisely that it is not like Chicago, or Birmingham, or even Rayonne, or Albertsville. If one lives in some of the little places ot America, one no longer need apologize for it. However, we keep doing that. Just this month, the mayor of Fordyce complained to the president of ABC that Fordyce is aggrieved over the way it was presented on the Bear Bryant documentary which that network recently did. Perhaps they complain with adequate justification. However, for all the rest of us, it it well past time to quit splashing about in a sea of apologia simply because we live in small Arkansas towns. There are those demographers, geographers and sociologists who at this moment are giving careful study to the causes of urbanization and the possibilities of reversing the trend. . .which is another way of saying some learned people suspicion that life in a smaller community may be better.

Dear Sir: .1 feel that it is my duty to write you this letter as a sign of my feelings that were touched while 1 was in your town last week. It was a tbrlil to see a town in the United State that has people who are concerned about other people. I was at the Mississippi Union Gospel Mission with Bro. Paul Kirkendall. here are a few things that happened. Arrived on Sat. the llth of November at the Memphis airport. Met by a young preacher named Bill Cadwell who drove us to your town in the Mission truck. -:'At the Mission 1 met Bro. Paul Kirkendall for the first lime. f.He is a God sent man to your town. This was a new road for me since I have only been saved three years and ten months, preached at the Mission Sat. night, was on the radio on Sunday morning, preached in Missouri at Hie 11 o'clock services at the Mission at 2:30 p.m. and in east Memphis at 7:30. Was a full day but the Lord blessed. On Monday I was thrilled to see the Mission in action. Your town is a better place because of the Mission. People were fed and clothed, and furniture was given to needy families (there is faith and works going together). Then I took a e walk downtown to see what kind of town you had. The business men were kind and friendly to me. I saw in them a real American spirit. The people in Blylheville. Ark. are the kind of people I would like around my family as they are growing up. Your people were involved in the lives of all who were in need. Then on Monday afternoon I was asked to help conduct a funeral of a man who had only been in your town about three months before he died. The way that the people of Blytheville, Ark. came forth in this time of need is pleasing in the sight of God. The funeral home showed by Ilicir services that they have the right spirit for a prosperous town. The people at the Union Gospel Mission are to be thanked for their true dedication to the job of helping others. You have my permission to print this letter and lhank 'the people of your city for four days that gave me a new vision and a new spark in my heart to help others. I shall have you and your people in my prayers always. May Blytheville. Ark. always help the people in Iheir time of need also help Bro. Paul and his wife at the Mission to carry out the job that they have been at so faithfully in the past. Hev. Sid.

East won the dia. mond opening with his queen and returned the six. West thought awhile and played low, whereupon South proceeded to make five no • trump. Five spades would have made easily, but East and West should have taken five diamond tricks against three no-trump. Now-for the answers to the criminality involved in the hand. South was guilty of the crime of hogging the play. He really had no excuse for bidding on* and ttiret no-trump. © 1967 br NEA, Inc "Never mind that stuff—gimme your CREDIT CARDS!"

When an obstruction below the colon is the cause, this should be removed. If this child can be maintained in good health on a carefully regulated dosage of neostigmine (Prostig- min), the drug should be given indefinitely. It will cause no side effects, but it should not be used by persons who have asthma. If good health cannot be maintained with the drug, one of several types of operation may be necessary.

Q — Our son, 2, has von Recklinghausen's disease. Although we have been told that this disease is usually hereditary, no one in our large families (my husband's or mine) has had this disease. What would cause it and what are the chances it would appear in any other children we m a y have? A — This disease, neurofibro- matosis or multiple nerve tumors of the skin, is, as you say, hereditary. Such diseases sometime appear in an ance- tor (not necessarily a parent or grandparent) in so mild a form that it goes undiagnosed. With so little family history of t h e disease, there is little chance that it would affect a second child but this is * world wherein nothing is certain. Q — My daughter, 5, has white spots on her arms and legs. Her summer tan has made these spots more noticeable. What cones them? Is it serious? What should be done for them? is the use of masking cosmetics. Please end your questions and comments to Wayne G. Brandstadt. M.D., in care of this paper.
