' Iii 3G states 90 per cent Ciflne proceeds of this payroll tax will BO into state funds from which, beginning in 15)38, weekly benefit payments ranging from §5 to $16 will be made to '. eligible workers involuntarily out of employment. v But while Arkansas employers will pay the tax, no part of the money ' they pay will go into a fund lo pay benefits to Arkansas workers. Arkansas is one of (he 12 slates which have failed to set up unemployment compensation systems. Unless the federal law is changed "by the new con. gress the proceeds of the tax on J93G payrolls will be lost forever to this state and the inauguration of a system of unemployment benefit, payments in Arkansas Will be delayed for at least a year. , The failure of Arkansas to qualify -__~for participation in .the unemplotf- fnent • compensation program wiis not the result of an oversight. The matter was under discussion for months prior to the December 31 deadline fixed by the federal law. A special session of the state legislature would have been, necessary. Governor. Futrell said that he would cull such u scssiou only at the request of Govcr- , nor-elect Bailey. Bailey let it he known that he would assume the responsibilities of the governor's office when he became governor and not before. The buck was handed back and forth and nothing was done. While the apparent result is a serious loss to Arkansas it is possible that everything will come out all right. There Mil be an effort on the part of the congressional delegations of Arkansas and the 11 other non-participating states to obtain an amendment to the social security net to permit them to come in late without pen. ally. If that can he accomplished our procrastination will have cost us noth- ." ing. There may also be other chang- -• es in the federal law to permit us , to_ adopt a sounder system of unemployment compensation than is possible under the existing law. If that is done we will actually benefit by our SA'HJRDAY, JANUARY 2, 1937 OUT OUR WAY > MERELY delay, As the unemployment compensation provisions of the social security act are now written it is virtually impossible for a state to maintain any relation between the tax paid by its employers and the amount of benefits payable to their employes. The tax is n flat levy upon all commercial and industrial payrolls and must bo paid by businesses in which employment is stabilized the same as by those which lay off their workeis in every period of slackened activity. In the interest • of 'stabilization'' of employment as well as of fairness the law should bo changed to permit states to establish systems under which, after employers had built up to their credit adequate . reserves in the unemployment compensation fund, they would be taxed only so much as necessary to maintain those reserves. Thus industries which did not contribute to the unemploy- ,ment problem would in time be relieved of contributing/ to the support of the victims of that problem, leaving the industries responsible for unemployment to carry the financial burden, l/ynchings One of the TJXcellent records hung up in the year 193G is the fact that the lynching evil declined .substantially. The year saw nine lyncliings— and while it may be remarked that that was jusl nine loo many, it" should he noticed that it was 11 fewer than 1935's total. Furthermore, there weie 35 cases in which COWU.TGOIIS officers of the law prevented Attempted lynching.^ ami 30 of these were recorded in the deep south. Altogcthor,_ G9 people— all but seven of them ncgiocs — were saved from violence at the hands of mobs. • ( It is cause for congratulation, that record. And it emphasizes a fact Which northern critics too often overlook—that the average southern official, supported by the sentiment of liis own locality, is aware of his duty and brave enough to carry it out.

Nevertheless, a person with chronic infection will complain of difficulty in ••wallowing, of moderate son ness, and of a scratchy feelinj i:i the throat.

When tho tonsils arc infect::!, tho erypis or follicles scemio be full of! infectious material, which is responsible for tlie odor.

NOW GO O.V WITH Tim STOUY CHAPTER XVI IT was, beyond doubt, anolher murder. Hamon Vasqeuz look overcoat and carefully I'm going (o pound it to powder." Professor Shaw moved forward and looked down at Pearl John intently. "You can't do that, de Forest!" he protested, his voice shaking. "As if the knife hasn't already played its part, as far as you are concerned, Professor," answered Pearl John icily. "Now, dc Forest, that's treating Professor Shaw pretty roughly isn't it?" Ramon interceded. Pearl John colored and, after a minute, he turned to ihe professor. "Forgive mo, please. I shouldn't have said what I did. Bui—" his lips set hard, "I still am going to dispose of the knife. I.- shall never have a minute's peace until that is done." Pearl John went to Ihe door and called a servant. "Tell Broken Shield to bring tho heaviest sledge arinner from the shop here to ,c," lie directed. "You may as ell all sec me do this," he added nejniiigly. "I think we'll all feel •ifor when we know the knife is o longer in existence." 3ROFESSOR off his covered Iho body, then motioned to the Indian and Bob to help cany it to Hid house. Bc-Uy slipped her arm into-Pearl John's and the strange little procession started back across the snow. Not a word was spolten until they entered tlio patio. Then Pearl John seemed to have recovered eaoiifih to direct them la lake the dead man to the chapel. This lime, however, as they left the room lie locked tho door and put the Iccy in his pocket. As they walked to (hc t front ol the house everyone was keenly conscious that each of the others was a potential murderer. This lirno there could be no doubt that the person who hod committed the crime was• on the mesa. The sinister knife had been on the premises, although 'everyone had supposed H had boea put away in sate keeping. The crude, h'arid- cfiippcd point of black, gloss-like rock had struck twice at tin household on Thunder' Mesa Would there bo another victim' If so, who would it be? . 5 9 e - iiA'S though ho, loo, had the same v: . thought, Pearl John an nounccd, "1 have decided to dc stroy the obsidian knife. It seems ' fliil, to crave sacrificial blood an t * SHAW walked rapidly up and down tho room 'hilc they waited, as though try- ng to think of some way to'.dis- uiide de Forest. Finally Bob' said rfiiably, "For. gosh sake, Profesor, do you have lo prance around ,kc that?- We're all on edge, you now." "Pardon." The archeologist >a'uscd in the doorway. "I'll be n my room if you want me. I au'l stay here and see this thing done. It's too outrageous, loo pre- Hc stamped off 'down lostcrous!'" he ball. The Indian, .coming to the door ust then, distracted everyone's attention from .the excited scien- ist. "Slay here, Broken Shield," ordered Pearl John, "i'm going to see lhal (he obsidian knife is destroyed and you may as well be :he one to do it. I'd like you to snow, too, that the knife is no longer available for use." "Knife .came from sacred kiva,' Broken Shield said.. "Very old- very strong medicine. Broken Shield not touch it to harm knife. The gods strike sure—pronto. 1 ' "There certainly seem to be a lot of people interested in keeping this cursed old thing in existence," remarked Pearl.Jphn sarcastically! "Perhaps," Broke'n Shield, you can tell us just how the knife disappeared after my oldest brother's death?" ."No," answered the Indian: "I not know. Not see until today/' "And it was in Pead Pierre's throat when you got down there to his body on 'the rocks?" demanded Pearl John. "Yes. I see it. It was In throat." The man motioned with one hand to his own neck. "In his throat—" Pearl John repeated. "Just as it'll be in some other throat unless it is destroyed. There are enlirely too many people who seem to have a reason for wishing that knife kept." . • . * * « J^AMON leaped to his feet in • rage. "I resent (hat implication, de Forest," he. roared.. "Just because Professor Shaw and I see no reason for ruining a valuable artifact is no proof that we've been murdering your famil^ 1 Since you've been so free to express your suspicions, let me rcV •nind you (hat, after all, you are hc'one here who. really gains by he death of the older members of the family. As for him," Jointing to the Indian, "the knife undoubtedly holds some religious significance." . • : Pearl John's face turned scarlet \ with Jury! Then, with an effort, he got control of himself and snid quielly, "We won't discuss this further, Vasquez. There's ' been loo much blood spilled nlready. I am going to the chapel now and get the obsidian knife. If no one else will do it, I shall destroy it niyself and take whatever curses heathen gods care to sent] upon my head." He walked quickly, to the door, where lie turned. "I should prefer that you all wait here until I come back," he said and then disappeared. : "1 feel as though' I had a box seat at a blood-curdling mystery play," Bob said in a low tone to Betty, beside him. "So do I," she answered. "It's as though we were waiting for the curtain to go iip and show its how it all happened." She : shivered arid looked around. Bob look her liarid and held it fast, thinking as he looked down ^t the soft white fingers what it would mean to him if anything should happen to her. Then-h felt those fingers grow tense. John was standing in the doo and all eyes immediately tunie;( to Jum. ; [• r- . . i ,:.;"The chappi..'door ,.wte still ' locked, 1 ? he said ..slowly,, "but. someone had removed the obsid- ' ian knife." , (To Be Continued) Laundries Use Invisible Inks ior Markings LONDON (UP) ^-Promises that no more linen will be damaged at Hie laundry, and that shrunken collars will be things of Iho p;ist, were made by speakers- nt the opening of the new extension of the British Luundry Research As- sccialion's laboratories. The work of the association has, gone far toward finding, and curing, the root-troubles of laundry damage. . ' Among improvements at the Inborn lory, resulting from years of research, are machines for testing the- strength of fabrics before and after washing; machines for finding localized chemical damage charts giving the correct temperatures of the washing-water, and of the irons required for various Fabrics. Unsightly washmarks will dis- ii'pncar. Already many laundries Rre using invisible ink for marking. These marks can only be seen under ultra-violet rays. 1 Many manufacturers, particularly those in wool and silk trades, are considering issuing "lanndcr- ftbility" certificates, based on the tests laid down by the association. Expert Names Bird Foes of Boll Weevil NEW ORLEANS (UP) — The whistling Bob White docs not feed on boll weevils, as is generally believed, according to Stanley O. Arthur, well-known New Orleans ornithologist. "Scientists in search of enemies of the cotton plant,". Arthur said, "linvc learned that our quail, generally speaking, does not eat the boll weevil. That duty is .left to others of the feathered tribe. "The 'quail 'or 'partridge'—to call Bob-White by what he is not —confines his feasting for the most part to weed seeds. "If a weevil-eating, bird is to be enthroned in a 'Cotton Preservation Hnli of Fame,' then I nomi- nate the following boll weevil destructionists: : "Baltimore oriole, orchard oriole, nighthawk, • purple martin, tree, bank r,hd .barn, and rountl- wingcd swallows, chimney swifts, yello'.v-bilied cuckoos (rain crows), upland plover, kilid.e'ers, grackles (crow blackbirds or chocks), bluebirds, cardinals'and mocking birds' —to name a few."

OUR BOARDING HOUSE in itself, litit the possibility of in- ti'ctcd ears, infected joints, or heart disease associated with chronic tonsillitis is sufficient likely lo make treatment desirable. Tonsils sometimes become so large as to interfere with swallowing and breathing. In the majority of cases in \vhlcii there is no enlargement, repeated infecticns make removal necessary. This relationship of infected tonsils to disease: elsewhere in tha borly is no longer a matter of theory. Investigations in many hospitals and laboratories now have proved that tonsil infections may cnuss infection of the heart, of the kidneys, and even of the tissues lining (he abdominal cavity, a condition called peritonitis. There is evidence that infectei tonsils may bs responsible for frequent colds, infected cars, fatigue, nervousness, and rheumatic symptoms, it has not b:en absohite'lv proved that infected tonsils \villl result, in these complications In I every case.
