Accident Mars First Day of School An item on the day schools in Wilson for the 1949-50 term carried the sad news that a small boy started for school but arrived in the hospital instead, the victim of an accident on the highway. Motorists should be safety conscious »t all times, but with schools in session it becomes more important that they exercise extra precautions. Every motorist should be ready to expect the unexpected, to keep his car »o w«ll under control that lie might have a thance to avoid the unavoidable. It may appear ridiculous to expect a motorist to avoid the unavoidable, but an incident the other day right here in Blytheville serves to justify the suggestion. An automobile was traveling in the a*m« direction as a small girl on a bicycle. The girl was on the left side of the street when she made a sudden hairpin turn to the right in the middle of the block and within a few feet of-the front bumpers of the automobile. The cm- stopped and the child completed her turn. Had that automobile been traveling 25 or 30 miles an hour, and that still would have been within the legal limits in Blytheville, there could have been an accident — one which in all probability the courts would have termed unavoidable, that is, on the part of the driver. With children Koing to and from school, drivers need to be on the alert to do everything in their power to reduce the loll in lives, mangled limbs and nerve strain on the part of parents. And the parents should do their part by using every known means to acquaint the children with Uie dangers which exist on the streets, and that they must learn to expect the unexpected from sornt of the drivers. Nearly all drivers are careful drivers, and that fact tends to carelessness on the part of pedestrians who need to remember thai a few drivers are a s dangerous behind the steering wheel as a madman with a powerful gun in nis hands. Secretary's Economy Drive Should Bear Fruit The exchange of words between Secretary of Defense I.uiiis Johnson and Oklahoma's Senator Klmer Thomas over whether the Armed forces will foot the bill for a proposed globe-circling flight tor members of a congressional committee should hold interest for Arkansans as well as taxpayers generally. The battle of words started wher. the defense secretary suggested that Thomas and his senatorial colleagues join him in his economy drive and try using commercial airlines because it would be easier on the tarpayers' pock- ttbook. Now Senator Thomas is asking about the defense secretary practicing what he preaches and use commercial planes, for some of his own trips in the interest of economy. And carrying the matter a step further, the senator wants figures on costs for some of the secretary's trips. Taxpayers will welcome the figures. And since some Arkansas officials have been doing <tn unusual amount of hopping around over the state, perhaps it would be enlightening to the Arkansas taxpayers if they, loo, could have some figures on the sum they are paying to finance some of these trips which have been dubbed "political campaigning" in a year in which there are no elections scheduled. Taxpayers are entitled to relief from their tax burdens am! they are entitled to more value from the money which is being spent. _WEDNESDAY.

India and Parisian both have beta forced to put peace ant] food ahead of formal democracy, but Uie two states nave the same youthJui asp)radons as Had our own republic. As a subcontinent of poverty auri partly-exploited wealth, torn by civii mitt religious war, Jncim iwoiild challenge the best ol (joi'ernmenus. Bui revolutions often create strong leadership, and the men who have followed Gandhi, Nehru and Jin nab have shown Again that this is true. Their mutual independence day lotind the leaders of Pakistan and India exchanging confidences in happier relations. Under UN auspices, their governments negotiated a (nice in the brief war trial turned Kashmir inlo a vale ol tears. And with the considerable i coloration of public order, the second year of both stato.s has re-1 lee ted material progress. Starvation, with the lile expectancy only 27 years, is tne traditional enemy ol India. In the, year lack of food grains created a drain on dollar resource* needed to buy industrial goods. But new land has been put undr cultivation, and •46 irrigation^ and electrification projects similar to onr Tenne.ssee Valley Authority are under construction. India plans to slop grain Imports alter 1951, The Industrial record shows an increase in production and foreign trade in hundreds ot millions of dollaiii, while labor disputes decreased after the British departed. It may tw a ICHE timr before the results are apparent among 400,000.000 people, but any progress report is muisuai in states newly come from bloodshed to freedom. Indians are attempting the huge of building »n industrial economy and raising rural living standards by democraltc means. This, mvosves the time-eating conflict of interests. But lime is virtually the history of India, and it.s people prefer to spend time for security, rather than let themselves b* mobilized ..under dictatorship In behalf of some live-yeRr^pian. On Oct. 2, Gandhi's birthday, the Government of India expects to adopt its new const nit ion. This is a remarkable document, not only tor its full expression of what we think ol as democracy, but because it will require sharp changes in Indian society. Aside from guaranteeing civil liberties and free elections, it will institute frea schooling and protect religious freedom m a predominantly Hindu stale. Above all, the constitution lifts Ihe religious curse Iroin the unloucnabJe caste which Gandhi befriended. In America.

I) WrUUn tor NEA Service Many articles have already been written about the remarkable ef- *|* ,1? Jhe umatold fthe crippling) arthritis and rheumatic fever of » lormone originally obtained from h6 adrenal s land known a$ compound E or cortisone. This hormone and another obtained irom the pit- iltary gland known as ACTH ap- «ar to relieve the .symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatic ever, and goul. They do thus >romptly and apparently almost completely. Why they do it. however, is not well understood as yet. In most cases the symptoms for which compound E or cortisone is given return just as badly as before immediately or soon ;ifter the Injections are stopped. Also, no one yet knows how much of these hormones should be given or how long they can be continued with safety to the patient. In other words, it Ls not yet certain whether cortisone i safe to give in quantities which will produce relief or whether it can be given for long periods of time without producing other condition.* bad or worse than which one is trying to relieve. Prohibitory Exncnsr It cannot be emphasized too much also that cortisone is just not available except in extremely small quantities. U Is still beinsj experimented with and is exceedingly expensive although there Ls hope that the quantity will be increased and the expense decreased within a year. At present, however, scientists and physicians should be allowed to continue their investigations of these extremely powerful substances without tco much pressure from the suffering patient who must wait until the necessary testing has beer done. Unless this happens, much harm mav be done to many patient. 1 ; and a serious delay develop in solving rho many scientific problems which still remain. Note: Dr. Jordan ts unable to answer individual questions from readers. However, each day he will si^wcr onr of the mast frequently asked quest ions in his column. QUESTION: Is it abnormal in a four-year-old boy for the testcs no to be descended? If it Is, what can be don P. for it? ANSWER; It is generally recommended that nothing be done imti about five years o!d because descnn 1 may occur up to thai time.

By DeWttt MUcKenii* AP Forelfn Affaln Analynt General Douglas MacArthur's renewed call for negotiation of K >eace treaty with Japan is couched n such laudatory terms regarding hat defeated country's progress as -o demand careful consideration by the allied powers. Ther« are, however, stubborn complications to be overcome before headway can be made toward implementing the general's recommendation. Div:rgence of views moug tin allies thus far hab« precluded a settlement. MacArthui- first advocated & peace treaty more than two years ago. Subsequently the Far Eastern Bl« Four (America, Britain, Russia and China) considered ways and neans but couldn't agree on the method of procedure. Russia wanted a treaty drafted by the four powers; America and Britain thought it should be don* by the Far Eastern Commissifc comprising the 11 nations whicvT ought against Japan -the United States, Russia, Britain, France, China, the Philippines, the Netherlands. Canada, Australia. India and New Zealand. China offered an unsuccessful compromise tlint the F~r Eastern Commission draft the treaty but that decisions be si'bject to the unanimity of th? Big Four. Big; Four Lacks Unity Since then the situation has become immeasurably complicated hy the success of the Chinese Communists against Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek's Nationalist government. Should the Chinese Reds establish a stable regime it would split the Far Eastern Big Four into two equal camps — Russia and Communist China on one side and the Anglo-American pair on the other. It would be communism versus democracy again. Despite the difficulties, however, the time Ls rapidly approaching when action vill have to be taken, Mac Arthur says the Japanese have "fully and faithfullj observed their surrender commitments" and "have well earned freed* • and dignity and the opportunity which alone can come with the restoration of peace." The general asserts that the "threat of communism as a major Issue Jn Japanese lift Is past, . . , The basic causes of social unrest throughout Asia have largely been eradicated in Japan b;* a re-deslSjA of the social structure to perrnvr equilization of individual opportunity anr' personal privilege." The budget has been balanced. No Outline of Terms Of course this doesn't mean that Japan's misdeeds will be forgotten. She has sinned greatly and must expect the allies to insist that safeguards be taken against further transgression. However, Europe would seem to provide an object lesson in the matter of delaying too long In making peace treaties with Germany and Austria. , One of the manifestations ol .the cold war In Europe has been the failure to make treaties in tbe shooting war. The cold war which is being waged in the Far fXst won't be concluded until a pe^e treaty is made with Japan. General Mac Arthur didn't indicate his idvea of what the peace treaty should provide. One would expect that it would contain full safeguards against further agres- sion. These would include continued military occupation over a long period. However, such restrictions need not Interfere in any way with the new Japan taking her rightful place among nations of good will. M bills were in conference.
