Surplus Highway Funds hi arguing for'retUNI to the i.'0iinlias of all sink 1 bijjlnv.-iy revenues in excess of $10,000,01)0 per year Judge R. ; M. lUithven, Hiixter county, president of (he Arkansas Association of County Judges, pointed out that « largo [)i'o- jjovlion o[ the highway revenue is provided by residents of the stiite \vlio get little direct benefit from the 7,000 miles of .state highways but do most of their 'diiving on the 80,000 miles of rural loads, which receive little or none of the (Hoteedb of auto license and gasoline ta\eb. There is, of course,' merit to this contention, but (here remains doubt that dihUibtilion among the counties of funds not iciiuirwl for the highway bond icfunding program is the best remedy, mere availability of funds for uninly highway work lias not alway.s boon iuflicient to guarantee county hiKluviij (.uiiblriidiuu programs of any but • political ;_vuluc. If highway revenues are nnming ahead of icijiiirciuoiils lliero am a number of other ways in which the s>mplus might be used, possibly with greater permanent benefit than could be expected from Judge Uutliven'.s plan. Theie might be established, for example, a state fund for the construction oi a wuimiMeiit system of farm- to market loads. Qr.llie bin plus iijughl be 'set .aside ;' Jor (he'pmchase, at;a dLscounl, of outstanding, highway bonds, thus culling down the slate debt. Or the piesent unreasonably high slate gasoline t:ix might bo reduced. COUUlfitt NEWS Progress in Health one gets discouraged willi the picgiesb of medicine. One sees, despite modern knowledge and facilities, the suffering of friends, the all-loo-uide prevalence of disease. And one wonders just how great is this mediL.iU progress in practical re- .Sllllh. Now and then comes an inconspicuous answer which ought to be more geiicialJv known. For instance, the New Yoik Slate Department of Health icpoits that not a single case of smallpox v,ab leportcd in that state in 103-1. In the 'good old days" of our fore- fathers, every second fiice wits pilled by the j'avsges of this disease. Now Hnnitulion, preventive medicine, vaccination, |iave all but conquered it, In view of the comparative newness of modern medicine us a .science, progress has really been a marvel. Sickness, disease, death, may never be con<)iii>red, but credit for the reatarkitblu progress lhat can be tlelinitcly shown ought to be given freely. We n Not So Smart' The intelligence of the. American people is gradually deteriorating al a rate of about 1-por cent in each generation, according to Dr. Norman E. Himcs, Colgate University .sociologist, and if the trend continues it will have profound and probably unplciisiint effects on American democratic society. The Iroubie, as eugenists have pointed out before, is that people who are well-txiuippevl genetically to endow their children with desirable qualities are having fewer children than lho:;e to- well equipped. "The 1 sources of intelligent leadership lire gradually drying up," says Dr. Dimes. "The rale of I per cent, which seems slow, is, as biological changes go, actually very rapid." One comfort is that the present trend iii birth rules may Jjc only :i temporary thing. Individual attitudes and social viewpoints have been shifting tremendously in Ihe lasl few decades; when tlio shift slows down, the present trend in birth rates may be completely reversed.

"So your father's better Ehis evening," she said to Gale, across the table. "Well, I'm glad lo bear II. I've been uieauin' to get over and ask ho\v he was getlln' along, bul tbis rlieumallsm'ln my leg's been BO liiul lately 1 haven't been out of the lionso. 1 declare, if It Isn't one linns H's another!" "Yes," Gale aerceil, "it docs seom that way.- I'm sorry about the rheumatism. Is there nnylliiiig I could do?" Mrs. O'Connor shook her head. "Nollnn', dearie," she salt!, "Inn thanks for offcrin'. There's nothing that teems lo tin much good for rheumatism but sayin' your prayers — and sometimes lr,o Lord seems lo tio llstenin' elsewhere, t'vo bad riieinnatism off and on for ly yoars now and I guess I can nlaml It. \Vltat uinlies iue no (jii-i..Ttloii tund ift lliLtt it had to come right now when I wanted lo eel Ibis cout out lo Mary for her birlhday. It's Sun- tiny— her birthday. I mean. I'll have the coat finished and she needs II, bin I iloii'i linow when I'll bo able lo t'ct it out to her—" "Why can't 1 lake il?" Gale asked. Mrs. O'Connor raised her eyes. "Cotiltl yon?" sbo askcrl. "I ivoii'l let Hie children to so far from Vioino. Mary lives clear out in Gates Center, you know." "Br.t tliat Isn't far. I could go on tlio bus. f can do It, Mrs. O'Connor. I'll he glad lo!" "Now say, that's miKlilJ ulco of ypn. If it wouldn't bo too imicb trouble—" "Listen lo you!" Gale said reproachfully.

Frank was Mrs. O'Connor's Gou-m- law and Mary'a husband. "Some- limes." she went on. "I think they'd been a good deal belter off— Frank and Mary— if they'll wailed to get married, tlio way I wanted 'era lo. And yet 1 don't know. f?<> don't make much hut they MOID happy. Frank's awful good lo Mary and sho ihluks there's nobody else like him. 'J'hfs coat—" CHE held up the garment. Inspecting II, II was a heavy brown cloth wlili a llghler plaid collar. "I made II over." she explained, "from one- Mrs. (Juristic gave me. i used lo work for Mrs. Clirlstlc, you know." "Il'a a lovely coat," Onle agreed. "Anil BO warm. Mary'll look nice In that brown, (oo." "Well, it'll keep her warm. Thai's why I'm so anxious for her lo have It. She needs a warm coal, Mary doco. She can't stand cold weather." "I'll come over and get ihc coat as soon «s we're through with dinner Sunday," Galo promised, "l guess I'd better mu along now. l)o you know, Mrs. O'Connor, we had vegetable soup for dinner and father said, 'Well, this is good soup unt It Isn't up to Hint Mrs. O'Connor makes'." "Sdiff and nonsense! Go alon" with yon." "But it's true." Oalo insisted. "I guess I'll have to got teach me to cook." 'It's not much I could be tcachlD 1 you." Mrs. O'Connor measured a Kill of thread critically, broke K off. and moistened tho end with her lips. "But If lhoro'6 ever anything yon waul and we've got It you know where to come." "1 certainly do!" "And If yon find you can't gel out to Mary's on Sunday H'll be all right. I'll find some othsr way—" "But I'm sure you won't need to. Well, fhla Mine I'm really going!"

Mrs. O'Connor announced lo Hie empty room. "She's one in a million." • • * VAHLY February brought a change In wcalher. When Gale slopped out of the house Saturday morning Iho sun wns shining and Ihe air was almost spring-like. By evening there were little pools of water along the sidewalk where Ihc ice. had melted and the ground was wci- Nejct moriiin.? was cloudy Imt U:o nir wne siill warm. Gale 1'iC'J dinner on the lahlc- half nn hour earlier than usual. v Later, nutting dishes into Ilic liot/sudsy waler, ruhhiug them wilh the dish mop. she hnmnicil a little tune. She was glad she was going to Mary Kilonm's this afternoon. H would bp a 30-ininulc lido into the country. Sho' was glnd she could do something, loo. lo help repay Mra. O'Connor for all her kindnesses. '• When Gale came into the living room presently, wearing her coat and hat, Tom Henderson was sit- 1 ting In his favorilo chair, looking out ou Iho street. Gale said, "I'm going to lake Ihe bus out to Gales Center noiv. I'm sure I'll bo back hy E, at the laical." Tom Henderson leaned forwarn and peered up at the sky. "lictler get started." ho advised. "Look« liko thoro mlglit be a storm after while." "Oh, I don't think so. It's been llko this all day." "Miglit bo a storm just the same," her father insisted, "lietier tako 1'our umbrella." (jale meant lo. She weul back lo her rooui lo get the umbrella nnd (hen Diouglil of Ihe kitchen door and went to see It it was fastened. It was not unllL she was on the. bus SO minutes later, riding along Center Road, lhat she remembered the umbrella again. Galo didn't think It mattered much that she'd left It The sky looked clearer than it bad'when she had left Ihe house. * • • jpHESENTLY ihc driver called out, "Gates Center," and Galo stepped down lo the street. There wns no pavement, only u beaten path. Gales Ceuler was nothing I more than a collection of a dozen houses, two stores and a garage nt the crossing of Center Head aiid the slate highway. Gale found the Klloraua' tiny home mid Mary came to the door. "Why..ciale Henderson!" Eiie ex. claimed. "Where, ever did you coma froinY" 'Happy birlhday! I've brought you something from your mother This big box. She wanted lo come but her rheumatism's been trou- hling her lalcly so she eouldn'i And hero are some molasses cookloa I baked this morning. I thought maybo you'd like them—" Nothing would do but Galo uiuet come In the house and have a cup of lea. Mary slipped Into the new coal and was delighted. It was later, when Gate arose to go. Ilian she lintl thought. Tho sky was darker now nnd a shary wind had risen. Mary came to the door nnd called after hor "The 4:30 bus Is Ihe' last until 8 o'clock. Mayuo I'd belter come, with you—" Gale shook her head. "I'll make ft all right." she called back, aua set off tor Iho crossroads. Almost aa though by prearranged signal Ibe storm broko then. Wet sleet came down with driving force, melting and slipping down inside Gale's collar. The M-Jnd w,i3 cold and growing colder. Gale bent her head and ran. Thp slcel stung her cbeeka and blinded her. Onco she slipped anil almost fell uut / she. caught her biilniice just,In time. It wan so (lark now thai aho could scarcely eeo Ike nalii. She ran on and reached tho crossroads, broalhless. There was the big bnu coming down the road. Us headlights gleaming. Gale, stood still, one hand raised, and heard the grinding noise as the driver put on tlic urakea. Tho bus hailed, stopper). Suddenly Gule gave a little cry of dis-' may. Sho was on tho wrong side ot tlie inlcrsecliou. She ran forward, signaling to (he driver to' wait, but evidently be did not see, her. There was another grinding sound, a snort and Iho bus was OH its way.
