Any Time Is a Good Time It was almost quaint, one of the items on the Governor's list of requested legislation for the expected February special term of the General Assembly. But there is was, second item on the firt page: a state minimum wage law. Certainly at a special session, one might reason, there is no genuine cause for including such general legislation in the call. While this may have some merit, it still is somewhat analagous to the benefactor who, poised to help a needy family, suddenly reconsiders because after all the Christmas season now is well past. In short, any time is a good time for Arkansas to pass a sane minimum wage law (it is against the law in Arkansas to work women for less than 25 dents a clay. . .heaven help the working girl). No time, no session of the legislature is an improper time and place to do something for the people ,vho are on the bottom rung of the state's economic ladder These are those who stand in the most critical need and they are the ones who have been met with studied indifference by politicians at every level for many years. Certainly it must be more satisfying for some office holders to point to their good Works which are in steel and concrete: the bridges, new buildings at college, wide bands of concrete roads. These are important amenities to living in Arkansas for many people.. But how much more important is the daily bread for the unskilled Arkansas worker. Those legislators who work toward a statute which will assure these people a decent wage will be making a contribution toward responsible citizenship for thousands of Arkansans. ^Jo Jli (Letters to the editor are welcomed.

Dear .Sir: "; I wish to voice my opinion that I respect my fellow members of my generation to voice their dissent to the draft, become "hippies" or "freemen" as they are now calling ^themselves and are dabbling in LSD, pot, {SIP, etc. : * After all, the leaders of today do not always come across. They preach one thing and practice entirely a different policy both civic and religious leaders alike. .t I think while they do not constitute a majority of the 13-10-29-years^f-age group (of yrtiich I am a member, a veteran and presently a farmer and proud to have served ifty country), maybe if the older generation tfould try to understand the younger generation regardless of race, creed or color in the United States of America, there wouldn't be any need for the 18-to-25-year-olds to turn on, tune in, drop out of life. -I Being seven years removed from my teen years, I still enjoy rock music mainly because it has improved greatly since my last teen year in 1960. But I also enjoy classical, religious, jazz and other types. The music and the related has become a form of communication for the teens. Some of you older folks do agree that it is good music (Hugh Downs, Leonard Bernstein). ie We should not criticize the younger generation because we have fought all these wars to give all the people who want to voice their opposition to the Vietnam War, draft, et al. Thank God we are still able to do this. After all it has not been many years ago that one president decided to suppress opposition to the way he was conducting a war, (President Lincoln during the Civil War.) All Americans should be proud that we can have our senators, representatives, radicals, pacifists, activists, reformers, hawks, doves voice their opposition, support, etc. of the present government policies without fear of being murdered, unjustly imprisoned, persecuted or deported.

The early Culbertson system had lots to commend it, but there has been continual improvement in bidding over th'e years and even a beginner would be lost without some modern tools. 'What we do believe is that ybu don't need to bid every hand as if you were trying for a Nobel prize in mathematics. Ypu should bid as directly as possible toward the final contract. South was an old-time rubber bridge player who despised all modern methods. Hence, his choice of a spade instead of a club as his opening bid. North was a scientist and decided to respond two clubs rather than three diamonds which would have been our choice. -South might have raised clubs immediately. Culbertson would have, but South wanted to show both his major suits. Then, when North bid three diamonds, South went to three no- trump.

Now South cashed the ace and king of spades and ran off all the clubs. He came down to the ace- queen of hearts as his two last cards while dummy held a heart and a diamond and West had to blank his king of hearts. Then he refused the heart finesse and plucked that blank king. "Beautiful, just beautiful," mumured North. "Too bad you never raised clubs.

We IJQCtOr jayS Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association A mother writes that her daughter, 3, has' been crying out in her sleep almost every night. Night terrors in children are most often seen between the ages of 3 and 8. These children are often nervous and high - strung or sickly. The most important steps a parent can. take are to make the child's waking environment as calm as possible and, with the help of a pediatrician, get her in good physical condition. When she cries out at night Ihe mother should go to her, get her to tell what was frightening her, then reassure her that it was all a bad dream and that everything is all right. With this treatment the child should outgrow these spells in time. : Q — My 18 month - old son was born with a divided spine. What causes this? Would a second child be likely to have the same defect. A - When the right and left halves, of the vertebral column fail to fuse at some point the child is born with spina bifida or a divided spine. The severity of the condition varies widely depending on several factors. The defect is fairly common but the chances that a second child would have this condition Blytheville (Art.) Courier New- Friday, December 29, 1967 Page 4 are remote. Q _ My 18 • month - old son gets bloodshot eyes from time to time. What causes this? A The most common cause is infection. If the inflammation accompanies a head cold it will clear up as the cold goes away. If he has no cold, allergy is a possibility. Si >p in his eyes is another. You snould consult your pediatrician to determine the exact cause so that the proper treatment can be prescribed. Q — Two of my si'i children like to eat dirt. Is this harmful? Do they lack some vitamin or element of nutrition? A Maybe they have heard the old wives' tale that every child must eat a peck of dirt and they want to get it over with. This is not a good idea, however, because who can tell what germs or poison may be present in a random sample of dirt? A lack of iron is a more likely cause than a lack of vitamin. Iron dcxtran complex (Imferon) or iron sorbi- tal citric acid (Jcctofer) have cured many children who have a bizarre taste for dirt due to an iron deficiency. Both drugs require a doctor's prescription. Please sand your questions Brandsladt, M. D., in care of this paper.
