A Suggestion Our governor has slated thai if the i people of Arkansas arc going to permit the operation of slot machines iin.vwfiy they might as well legalize them ami tax them and thus recover for public use some of the money the inadiiiiM extract from Hie pui-kuli) of the gullible. There is some sense in that, although we do not hold with those who claim that it is impossible to stop the illegal operation of these devices. Our own experience in Mississippi county' has .shown Hint whenever the authorities make up their mimls to it they have no trouble in getting rid oi slot .machines. Slot machines of the conventiuiml jack-pot type are objectionable not merely as {rambling devices. They are worse than that. They arc a cold- blooded, mechanical gyp which extracts for the owner a fixed percentage of the money which is put into them. Defenders of thc^o • machines jsay that suckers and their money are soon parted anyway, so no real harm is done. Perhaps that is fair enough. For the protection of those who are uninformed concerning the nature of these machines, however, we suggest that a provision be written into the bill for their legalization .to require the posting on the front, of each machine a statement of the odds against the player, tf that, is done wo; Will feel that those who put their money into thehi do indeed deserve to lose it. Our Political Postotfice For uncounted years the postoll'ice has been a synonym for partisan politics.. ,To think of it in any other way is a sort of minor revolution in itself. Vet Senator Morris has introduced a bill in Congress which would effectively take the federal 1'ostoil'ice Department out of party politics. It provides for a postmaster general appointed for 10 years, who would appoint his own postmasters on a merit basis rather than have them appointed nominally by the president, hut really as a reward for local party work. Norris' aew law is aimed principally at the old custom of having (.he chairman of the victorious party's national BLYTHKVILLtf, (AUK.) GOUiUEll NEWS committee also ucl its postmaster general, with control of the vast patronage at present attached to that olfice. All efforts to pry Jim Farley loose from one of these two jobs so far have been vain. Norris' bill would end it not on|y for Farley, but for flic future. Jt seems visionary, this idea to make the postolUcc "a business institution based upon merit and ell'icicncy." Hut Norris has wlain bigger dragons than this. Starving to Aooid Hunger It is u pleasant little picture which Admiral Minco Osumi, minister of the Japanese navy, held out to bin people in a recent .speech in the Japanese parliament. The admiral asserted bluntly that Japan must be prepared to go through with any naval nice that may develop, "even if we are reduced to eating rice gruel. 1 ' Now a statement of this kind indicates the confusion into which military men are all too apt to fall. For if a nation maintains a navy for any sensible purpose at all, it is'for the purpose of warding oil' enemies that the nation will not bu reduced to poverty and hardship which the eating of rice gruel is supposed to signify. To accept such leadership and poverty voluntarily to support a navy is to gel the carl, u couple of nautical miles ahead of thu horse. No Kindness in Promising Pensions We Can't Pay Many people are miinlCcstly thinking about okl age [tensions with llllle conception of their cosl. The agitation for the Townscnd plan probably has something to do with that. Besides the fantastic sum of $200 n month for everybody over (JO lesser proposals look disap- polntlngly small. Governor Futrell said of n proposal for pensions of $40 to $50 « month, hnlf to be putt! by Arkansas: "Arkansas can't do II. n would dike $9,000,000, and n five per cent snlcs tax wouldn't do It. nml If il would, there would b« no money for nnythhijf" Senator Roy Mthmi of Bwne county told his collcnjjue.s 11 would "only kid the old people into believing they are going to get, something when they, are not." to set ustde 20 per cent of the revenue.of n two ixsr'-centisalcs tax for old age pciisloiis. Any one who questions ,lhe financial possi- tiilily of the old uyo iwiuiion^proposals neml- tnsr in lite'legislature Is• likely to he licensed of lack of sympathy fur used and destitute men and women.

Varicose Veins Result from Pressure, Lack of Exercise «Y 1)11. MOKltlS FISIIUEIN Editor, Journal u r lite American Medical Association, and of Hy- Kcia, the Health Magazine Tlie veins are the blood vessels, icar the surface of the skin, vhich carry the blood back toward he heart after llic arteries have carried the blood Into tlic tissues o supply them with nutrition. The veins in the leg have valves vhlch permil the How of blood wily ill the direction of.the hear!. f It were not • for tills fact, the blood would tend to drop back- vnrrt by the force of Bravity, or to 'lecomc stagnant. As it is, the pressure somelini'js s so great Unit the valves break lown and sometimes the walls of he veins stretch. Also, because of his pressure, Hie veins lengthen ud c-tii-l. When they get into this hupe, they HID called vuricare tins. The most frequent appearance of varicose veins of tho body ..arc hose in Ihe leg, in ilia -,« «[)- mialus of. the male, ami | hi the nri of Hie rectum. When ,vai lease eins occur In association with Hie ex structures of (he male, the oiitlitlon is called a varicncelc. 'arlcoso veins In the end of llic cctiun ure called hemorrhoids. One of the reasons for devclou- icut of varicose veins in the legs s, of course, lack of exercise. Evry movement of the leg muscle empresses the veins and causes he blood lo move on, while the alvcs prevent its relitrn. Another cause of breakdown of lie valves in these veins Is the . ein icrcascd amount of pressure from the tiss above brouehl aboul by slrainhig or by lifting heavy objects. In the case of pregnant women, the increased pressure In (he abdomen is associated with Hie appearance of varicose veins in the legs. In men, varicose veins are most common among those whose occupations keep them long on iheir feet; for example, motoi-tnen, ticket collectors, salesmen, elevator operators, and those in similar occupations. There are ciiscs in which (lie varicose veins break down and ulccralc. This occurs particularly when the condition is of lon^ standing, and when a scrnleh or bruise breaks the skin near the varicose vein. Another serious condition results when Innaminallon occurs in a varicose vciiratid in Ihe wall of •such a vein.: In sue], conditions clots may form, Ihe How of Ihe blood may be obstructed, and frequently secondary infection may spread elsewhere in the liortv Nowadays it is niiwise lo" permit varicose veins to persist or become worse. There arc methods of treatment. For prevention of varicose veins clastic stockings may be wom . riiose may be purchased so thin us lo be hardly visible. Another inclhod of treatment is sun-ical removal. i"L«..u The third method, or Ihe one most popular, is injection.
