End //je Danger If there hud to be a break in the Big Uke-Ultlc River levee system no more foKunate spot for it couhl huvo Leon chosen than" Hie point wliere Die levee actually tliil fail this morning. Compared to what the result would have been had the break occurred anywhere on the 1'iist sitle of tlio floodway, or at Big Lake or farther north on the west side of the floodway, (h c damage in prospect is small. Most of the land to be flooded is in limber and the population is small. The break, however, dues emphasize the need for effective and permanent control of the waters of : Little River. The security of thousands of persona is now dependent upon a" system of levees, which experience has shown to be inadequate to handle .floods which are a more or loss normal occurrence. If nothing is done the next break may come at a .point where il will cause a disaster of largo proportions. A permanent euro for the Little River flood menace is provided in a plan, a])j)i-oyc!ct ,l#; the war department, for •'spending some ?16, P DO'0,000 'on "the rebuilding of levees and the widening of floodways throughout the St. Frauds basin. This year's Hoods along the St. Francis and thu tremendous amount of money that has been spent in fighting them mid in providing relief for their victims, to say nothing of the economic loss they entail, should drive home to those Jn authority at Washington the futility of patching and repairing an inadequate system .and the necessity of providing, once and for all, a real cure. America and the Next War With nil Europe talking wall ami preparing for a war tliat seems curtain to come in time, il is not out of place to consider what the probable ulVecl of such a struggle would be upon the United States and what role the interests of this country demand that we should take in it. Sentiment in this country today i.s little short of unanimous that, regardless of anything, we should' 1 keep nut of Europe's next war. We got into the last one and got nothing otit of it but a greatly increased national debt, a lot of bad accounts, and economic dcpres- BLYTHBytLLE. (AftK.), .COURIER NEWS OUTO.URWAY sion. • Af, that, we were probably lucky. The noxt lima we might fare worse. Granted that we will have sense enough to stay out of the next war, another important thing to bear in mind is that if we don't want a repetition of the kind of thing w<j have been going through for the last five years we had better prepare to resiKt the temptation to finance uny of the conibattants. They will want loans to enable them to purchase supplies in this country and there will be tremendous pressure from American producers wanting such business. But we will be wise to remember that Europe has failed to pay the bill for the last war, ha H little to pay with, and al the end of the next war will be in much worse shape than she is now. If we step in find finance her conflict wo will enjoy a period of prosperity ouch as Hip. last war brought us. lint the inevitable aftermath will be painful deflation, It is to our interest, therefore, not only to keep out of war in Europe but to keep Kuropc out of war. What we can do to achieve the latter i.s perhaps not much, but it might help a little if we made it clear in advance that neither American men nor American dollars will be available to help any of the nations concerned. Landlords Need Savior Our advice to our brethren from the North who tome to Arkansas to save [hc country Is this: '"Gave your lours.

We sit up of nighls, .sometimes, wondering irnnltlichctl Hie country-savers will do when the country Is llnally saved, m our opinion, the country-savers do not really want to save the country; they only want !o continue Indefinitely TRYING io save the country, in the meantime receiving B ood salaries, living In gcort hotels, :md eating Hie fat of the land.

I went to my library and read something aliont "economics." Economics Is a good word, ujed, no doiiljt by many who have no conception of Us meaning, but It Is accented as n kind or Mother Ilubbard that coven; everything, whether It [ouches anything or not. Every sick business, and almost every discouraged business or professional man or woman are ready (o assign their Iroiible to "economic conditions." As the farmers are apparently affected adversely by all conditions, It is occeiitable. and nothing but fair and right, Unit t), C y assign t| le i,. troubles, also, to "economic conditions," which, after all, may not "! very far wrong. In order for the farmers to liat- ler understand "economic condi- «nl, the persons who come to doctors with disturbances of the skin have simple Inflammation due to some external cause or perhaps to an infection. One of the most common of the simple Inflammations of the skin is called Impetigo. This Is caused by the common pus-forming germs. In the treatment of this type of condition, It Is customary to use principally mild antiseptics, such as boric acid, various combinations of mercury, anil some of the- modern antiseptic dye substances. Silica skins of various types react. in different ivays to antiseptics Ihc strength of the antiseptic must be calculated particularly for the Individual skin. It is also Important, before applying any antiseptic, to make certain that the skin is quite clean Sometimes it is possible to secure greater cleanliness with less Irri- usually will serve lo remove ihc crusts and allay, the irritation You should remember, however that cleanliness Is probably'Just as Important as avoidance ol irritation, and Ihe removal' of ; crusts, pus, and discharge Is a necessity If any inllaincd skin is to recover. An Important aid lo maintenance of cleanliness In all forms of skin disease Is Hie frequent change of underclothing and regular cleansing of the orifices of the bodv - * » Of particular importance is protection lo the irritated tissues In some modern forms of treatment particularly of ulcers of Ihc lower limbs, means have been developed to apply permanent bandages containing the remedy used In the treatment. Afl«r Ihc lissues are thoroughly cleansed, the permanent bandage containing (j| C remedy is applied and is lelt on longr enough to permit the tissues lo heal. It is exceedingly dilflcult to take care of inflammations of the skin underneath the hair on various portions of the body. The first recommendation of Ihe doclor who handles such cases Is to out tin- hair short and to keep it cut short —about an eighth of an inch long. The crusts and scales are removed, and thereafter the remedies are applied which tlic doctor believes are indicated in the specific lype of case. r nn r".YT "7 -------- ""mi- eanness wth less (and this explanation Is for tatlon by i l5C of oils.
