TUESDAY, MAY 11, 1937 BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NE\VS PROFIT BILL Feminine Writer 'Continued Prom Paao Onel discarding the 95 per cent provision and providing that the treasury shall, within 30 days after declaration of war, work out a "system of taxation which, without preventing a fair normal return to tabor, management and Invested capital, such return to he fixed by congress, shall absorb all surplus profits above .such return." This appears to mean congressional fixing of wases. The question of -war nrofits Is left to cxrai- Mve discretion. The house cominittcc also voted to exempt newspapers and uiava- /ines from the licensing 'jirovi- sions. Control over the press, however, could be exerted through tlie government's power to control all supplies. Domestic) Dictatorship ., Whether or not the Shcppard- IliU hill [insscK, expert;; agree that American participation in ;i general war will mean a domestic dictatorship and that large war profits can't be eliminated. The present Issue Is as to whether it's wise to pass such a law now and whether the law should be permitted to go under its title as "a bill to prevent profiteering in time of M-ar and to equalize tlic liui'dcns of War and thus provide for the national defense, and promote peace."

The tuberculosis exhibit has been arranged through the joint activities of the United States Public Health Service, the National Tuberculosis Association and J.he Rosenwald Fund and comes t oArkan- sas from the Texas Ccnlennial, where it has been seen by thousands. Emphasis has been placed on tuberculosis among negroes for the special enlightenment of the southern states whose major problem it is. The social hygiene exhibit has been sent down by tile American Social Hygiene Association and the Arkansas Tuberculosis Association has routed it in connection with the tuberculosis exhibit as a part of the cooperative program of ail th healtii agencies with the surgeon general's public health campaign. Tbc state S|x>nsors of the entire project are the State Health Department and the Department of Education. Parent-Teacher Associations, junior and senior high school students and ail those interested in promotion' of better health are cordially invited to sec this display by O. W. Durham, president of the Mississippi County Tuberculosis Association. He says:" "Tiic words 'tuberculosis' and 'so- cial hygiene' need not frighten the public into thinking of somethini gruesome. There is nothing of th' kind to be seen. The exhibits ar a very live scientific presentatioi of facts which every citizen shouli know. Every person will have clearer idea ot what tubcrailosi means when he .sees tlie illuminate* lungs, one sick and one healths and then is able to trace in othe >arts of tlie exhibit methods of cur and prevention. Young peopl should be particularly -interestcc They will see plainly visualized th relationship of tuberculosis to the! own uirticular group." Ralph Thurman of Little fio: is in charge of tbe exhibit.

National Dlttlllert Products Corporation, Hew York Gtctb KINniCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKIf VOUS GUIDE TO $!SC» 0000 UQUORS hey Provide Strength nnd Keep Out Dusl and Cold When It comes to deciding what i do about wood Iloors in a nc'V ousc, there are several things that ust be considered; first, shall they e single or double floors? Second, hat, kil'id of wood shall be used or the finish floor? And, third, ow .shall they be finlshod? In deciding the ilrst miosllon, the act that double floors have a three- old purpose must be borne In lind. Put tin diagonally they act s a structural brace to the whole •lime. They add sound-deadening nd they keep down dust pcnclra- ion. So If llic budget permits, ouble Iloors should be included all hrougli. If economies must lie 1 node, omit the sublloor on the scc- iid floor, for If the bouse has a ellar, considerable dust will pene- raTe to the first floor if only a ingle floor Is Installed; and if here fs no cellar, then the snb- loor is needed as insulation. In "act, in tills case an Insulation board may be used as a sublloor. If the floors arc to be covered with linoleum or carpet- or some tther covering, a lint-grained soft- voort floor may be used. If not, t is better to use either an edge- grained wood or one of the hardwoods, as the flat grain may raise nut splinter. These come In varying degrees of cost, and the'tel- ler grades are well woitli the difference If the budget allows the expenditure. As for finish, a waxed surface is wanted in most cases. Just what sort of base should be laid for Lhc wax is a matter of opinion. Except with fiat-grained wood a filler -hould be used first, witli this filler there should be a des-ree of stain to darken tile floors. The amount of the darkening is a matter of taste, but floors should not be left entirely unstained, as dark ones set off tbc rugs and give greater depth to the room and arc altogether preferable. Over tliis may be spread a coat or two of shellac, with the wax as a final coat. Tlie objection to this is thai If the wax wears off and is not renewed before the shellac coat has been damaged It is difficult to reflnlsh nnd not have it look patchy. On the other hand, a hlsh gloss can be obtained more quickly tiEing the shellac. The other method is to nlacc the wax directly on the wood. This require: several coats and rubbing to bring ip a gloss finish, but it has the advantage of being easy to patch without the spots showing. Paint may be used with many delightful effects, but It must be borne in mind that paint will not stand hard wear a.s well as the other finishes. For a floor that must stand hard abuse, a good fioor or spar varnish may be used.

I'unction Is First Consideration In Present Day Home Design Modern architecture is a design for living, with the house planned functionally, from the inside oul. In constructing today's home, builders and architect are placing the main emphasis on rooms whleii are well planned in relation to one another to suit the family's needs. In si'ler-ilng homes that, are to be financed under its insured mortgage system, the Federal Housing .Administration considers the suitability of llic house to the needs of Die owner. Its size and price In relation to the family's Income Is us important In appraisal as the soundness of construction and desirability of location. Mortgages are .'insured for up lo 80 par cent of the appraised value of the house and land. Repayment is'made In monthly rent-like payments, over as long a term as 20 years If necessary, and include beside amor- tisation of tbe principal, interest, insurance, taxes, and other fixed charges. Some of the rules that guide the builder of modern homes include: (1) A plan lliat makes It possible Insulating Materials Offered in Wide Variety There are many excellent' insulating materials on the market; and dealers are in a position to advise on their proper use according lo each particular need. In selecting insulation material three important things are to be remembered: H should be Drcproof or at least firc-resislant. It should resist attack by insects and rodents or be well prelected against such attack. It- should be proof against or resistant to moisture absorption When intended for use in a house equipped with air-conditionm* devices the method of 'Installation assumes considerable importance, and it Is best to secure the advice of an architect or an engineer in this connection. WIJ;re humidified air Is present, special precaution must be taken to protect any insulation against moisture resulting from condensation durin» cold weather.
