Hamilton Moses of Little Kock to succeed Hie late .1. K. Jlaiiinmtu as jiuliio of the IJniU'd States court. Cor the eastern district of Arkansas. If .Mr. Ward has not. been misinformed it would apiicar that delegate.-; to the .eastern Arkansas liar moc'ling »l Wynne tomorrow, called In recommend a man for the place, will ho waalins their time. The Wynne meeting was called in an alt mini to reach ah -agreement, upon an eastern Arkansas man ami Mr. Moses, : as a resident of Little Rock, luis not Ijecn mentioned as a possible recipient • of Hit! group's endorsement. We sou no reason, nevertheless, why the appointment of Mr. Moses should be other- than satisfactory to Ihe bar the.public of eastern Arlumsns. After,, all the main- consideration is that the man' chosen for the place possess the qualifications' of a good judge. We believe, (hat in character, training aiid ability .Mr. Moses is well fitted for the office. That being the case, even though his appointment involves the passing over of equally eligible residents of our own part of the state, it should afford no ciiusc'for I'Cgi'Ct.

Driver [o t'hc presidency of the National Ilivers and Harbors Congress was liUinjj recognition of liis effective leadership in the long light for an effective iiiilionnl .program, for the control of floods. Congressman Driver was one of the lirst to ^recognize that floods are a national problem and that their control is a national' responsibility. To him is due a largo share of the credit for the fact that the national government has accepted that responsibility. Ilis efforts have already resulted in substantial progress toward making life and property secure in this valley and in other flood menaced regions. There is in progress of development a national program that promises in time to end jlhe danger of great flood catastrophes. Mr. Driver has served this district for 'mimy years. He can continue to servo it, il seems safe to say, as long as be desires. And when in lime he does retire il will be with the satisfaction of hiving made a major contribution lu the welfare of his own people and of the country as a whole. OUT OUR WAY Facing Two Ways A .small scale 1 sample of the conflicting attitude which America has toward the matter of war is pointed up by the rea'iif "peace .strike" in Nc,w York City. Thousands of students recited* an rath l).v which they bound themselves not to support (lie United Slates in any war it might conduct. In the demonstrations that followed, the students revealed their ovct whelming .sympathy for the side in Spain, many even (joinjj without their lunches and contributiiu,' their lunch money to a fund for the loyalists. Here Hie youngsters, at one and the .same time, are turning thumbs down on war, anil yet letting themselves ho .swayed by the plight of one faction overseas. And il probably would he hard to convince I hem that the two sentiments don't jibe; thiil sympathy for one or another warring side is al- way.s a distinct menace lo neutrality.

CHAPTER VII T ATER, Ihey discussed St over a laic luncheon at the Green Hills Inn. They had driven out from town together in order that Bob might pack his things and be ready to leave for the airport at six. "Just when we had everything practically settled," Bob said gloomily, "this had to come up. I had no idea he would ask me 1o go. Usually he looks into all new properties himself." Impulsively, Bob turned to Joan. "Will you mavry me, dear, as soon BS I get back?" Only for a second did she hesitate. Then: "Yes, Bob, I will," she told him quietly. "Whenever you say." Under the tablecloth, his hand tightened over hers, "I suppose we could be married today—and honeymoon in California." "No—not there!" Joan cried quickly, too quickly. Bob looked at her curiously. "Why not? California's a beautiful place. However, a mining camp frjend, and Hendry believes in him." "Don't you?" "Not particularly." "Why not? Do you know him?" "I met him when he was cast about'four years ago, and—well, he's just one of those people I don't like. However, I may be all wrong." He blew a smoke ring toward the fire, dismissing Mr. Norton with it. * * < PRESENTLY, with less seriousness, he suggested: "Suppose we forget the Bella Terra, my darling, and consider the future Mr. and Mrs. Andrews." Joan smiled wistfully. "Mrs. Andrews," she murmured. "It sounds so—so safe." Unconsciously they drew closer to each other. The coffee in their cups grew cold, but they did not realize it. In the fireplace,, the logs crackled with promise, anc the flames drew bright pictures of the future. A moment later Bob looked up and saw Sybil Hendry enter the dining room. She walked towarc them, apparently with the intention of taking the next table Then, carelessly raising her eyes she saw them. "Hello, Sybil," Bob greeted heartily. "Bob!" Sybil raised her eye brows in surprise. "It is nice t see you. And Miss Barrett! Hov arc you?" is hardly the best spot in world to take a bride." grinned. "I'd have a worse time out there trying to keep you to myself than I did here the other night." Joan breathed easier. "Where is the mine?" she asked conversationally. "About SO miles east of Sacramento. Forty miles from nearest railroad station." the "Is it so urgent that you go right away?" He nodded. "So it seems. The Bella Terra—that's the mine—is being offered at a sacrifice now. If the owners hold on to it until spring, the price will be doubled. Confidentially, if it's as good as they claim, I wonder why they're rushing us into such a quick sale. It sounds fishy somewhere." Joan looked up in quick, surprise. "Surely Mr. Hendry would realize that," she said. v^ "Apparently he doesn't. This -.'•fellow Norton—Ihe one who is promoling the sale—is *n old of the condition, using nil of the b;st available modern methods of ohysical and laboratory examination. Bob jumped up and pulled a: extra chair to the table for her "Why not join us, Sybil?" he sug gested pleasantly. "We've just fin ished our lunch—" "Oh, I've had lunch,'thank you. She sat down with Ihem, novel thcless. "I just stopped in for cup of chocolate—It's so chilly driving." Bob signaled the waiter and Sy bil gave the order. "I just talked to Uncle Joh on the phone," she remarked, "f tells me that you're going in h place, Boh." "Yes. He asked me to go th morning." Sybil looked at Joan and smil disarmingiy. "That is unforluna for you, Miss Barrett. Won't yi be lonely?" "Oh, no!" Joan replied though Icssly. "I have so many thin to do." . Bcb laughed. "She doesn't flatter me exactly, does she?" "I mean—" Joan flushed uneas- "Ycs. Seven ewark airport." o'clock from ily. Suddenly it seerried as if the charm of the afternoon were lost. She felt vaguely uncomfortable in Sybil Hendry's presence. The girl was so utterly perfect, so sure o£ herself. '>.'-' .'•'"' ' "You're ..leaving: this- evening?" Sybil asked Bob. *" ; " ; " !t " YBIL looked at Joan sympathetically. "That is sudden, ,j>'l it? Uncle John might have, ermitted you the week-end to- ether. Miss Barrett—or do you ind if I call you Joan2" I should love it." 'Joan, then." Sybil smiled gra- ously. "Why don't you spend ic week-end with me? My rother is out of town for a while nd I shall be all alone, too." "Thank you, Miss Hendry—" "Do call me Sybil." Joan smiled her acknowledg- ent of the charming patronage. "II is nice of you, Sybil," she aid, "to want me. But," and she cd deliberately, "I did plan to e wilh some friends on Long - sland," ; "Oh, I am disappointed," Sybil aid. She hesitated a moment, hen asked brightly: "Will you ave tea with me then—some aft- rnoon next week?" "1 should be delighted." "Shall we say Wednesday?" She finished her chocolate and ose, "f really must run along, promised to see Uncle John— loodby, Bob. Good luck on your rip. Goodby, Joan—until Wed- , .esday." * * * AS they watched her drive olt, "• Joan said to Bob: "You know 1 lied about my jcek-end on Long Island?". "I thought so. \Thy?" __ "I don't know. For some reason, I'm just a little afraid of Sy)il. I wasn't quite sure why she asked me. It seemed as : if Mr. Hendry might have suggested it." "Maybe he did," Bob agreed. "But Sybil was sincere enough. I understand how you feel, though. I've always been a little afraid of her myself. She's so coldly correct. . . . However, she has been a very good friend to me, whether her uncle suggested il or not. Whatever social success ,-1've had here in Green Hills, I owe to her. She launched me, so to speak. It's helped me to many a good contract in business, too. She's really a fine girl, Joan. I know you'll like her when you know her belter." "Of course." • '. Nevertheless, Joan felt that she could never feel a genuine friendship for Sybil Hendry. She felt strangely apprehensive, too, about the tea on Wednesday, although she did not kno\v why. Neither did she know that she was going to look back on that afternoon forever and realize that Sybil's tea marked the beginning of all her unhappiness. t ,, < (To Be Continued) > 10 Years Ago Prom the Files ot the Blythcviltc Courier News Thursday, April 28, 1327 The main body of \vatcr from the Dorena and St. Johns breaks is -,lov.-ly approaching the state line.

The age of Ihe p:\l\mt of course, is also of great importance. . ' With 'all these factors In mind. it is 'obvious that the prognosis or expectancy of the patient, in rc- eard to hts disease, may change from time to lime. , Generally speaking, the trarc advanced the disease is al ihe time diagnosis is made, tbe poorer Is the likelihood of recovery. ; n cases of tuberculosis that arc far advanced, recovery In more lhan 1C to 2n per cent of cases is unlikely. Tuberculosis is more quickly fatal ami more serious in the extremely yotms than in these who are older. Where )hinff condition' arc exceedingly bad. the likelihood of recovery is not so great. The temperament of the patient nnd Ills attitude toward the disease arc important factors, because a patient without hope and without eagerness to recover \vi! not give to his doctor or KUOSK the kind ot cooperation nec:s- sary. If the patient happens to have diabetes, heart disease, or some kidney disturbance in addition to tuberculosis, his chance. of recovery obviously Is that nuich less. » • « It ts customary nowadays to classify cases of tuberculous as either minimal, moderately advanced, or far advanced. Another classification describes c<ir,?s as apparently cured, arrested, apiwr- uitly arrested, quiescent, improved, or unimproved.
