SIDE GLANCES By George Clark /s Not All Most sicnificant in Prosit 1 cut Roosevelt's message to congress-, was hi.s declaration that permanent social and economic readjustment, rather than mere recovery, is his goal. : . -Large and powerful groups would be well pleased with a return to things as they were prior to the stock market colIapsVof 1929. Those' were days of huge and relatively easy prolits for many. They were not such particularly good days for most Americans, however, and students of economics- say' 'that they were directly responsible for the widespread suffering that has occurred since. ,\Yc : 'ca'nnot. afford to make our victory over the depression merely .a return to ^tho conditions that produced the depression. We- must find something safer and better, and it is reassuring: to find the president of (he United fetates committed to such a program. . Marriage or Career? The old argument about the conflicting claims of marriage and a career in a woman's life seems to have come to some sort of a climax in the alienation of affections damage suit ttlrd recently against a New York corporation by an indignant husband. The husband complains that his wile was a, branch manager for this eorpo- ration, and that he sought to induce her to iiuit work and devote all her time to their home. But the corporation, he asserts, "exerted an improper influence" over her, so that she decided to keep the job and let her home take a secondary place. So now he wants ?200,000 in damages. Of all the odd lawsuits, this one surely is one of the oddest. And yet it does serve to touch up that old marriage-versus-career argument; and it'probably-will provide lawyers with a chance for giving the argunu:iit a thorough airing in the courts. Arkansas's Special Highway , Problem Arkansas, whose topography innkcs highway building exceptionally cosily, lus n greater state system mileage In proportion to car registrations than any other filntc. W. W. Coclirmi of Portland Insists in a letter lo the Uazotle that those two facts must be taken Into account In Judging \vhelhcr our giiholinc and license taxes "arc; comparatively high or not." But nobody pays taxes on R comparative basis. What mailers to the Arkansas car owner Is the highness, or lowness. o.- moderation of the taxes lie has Id pay cut ot Ills iwckct- book. Aixl Is It any rccoinpmi-c fof h'B' 1 actual tuxes Hint v.e have over-extended our stale mileage In proportion to our ability to keep It up? Mr. Coclirun presents u table of comparative figures on mileage and revenue In various states. Mississippi, most, nearly comparable to Arkansas In area, population, per capita wealth and tax-paying resources, hits 0.07S miles to our 8.705 miles. Missouri, vastly more wealthy, tins 9,167 miles, only 402 miles more ll'tin Arkansas. Oklahoma, with its enormous oil developments,-, 1ms 0,850 'miles. Georgia and Tennessee, two of the strongest slates In the Soul!' economically, have 7.131 and 7.053 miles respectively. Mr. Cochran's tabulation .shows that Massn- . ciuisctts, with 1,699 miles of state highways, : had a..revenue ol »13.5J8 per mile In IBSa, • while Arkansjis's*' revenue was equivalent to $937.50 |>cr mile. But wlmt docs that demonstrate, except' that Arkansas would have to raise $118,'i83,S40 per year lo be <\f well oil ns Ma-vyichusells lii highway rev^nnr per mile of state" system?' i ' : If Arkiuisus's .state tnlleaKO lc abnormully high, and if on the other hand our car reglstra tion Is low nnd our bulldlmj cos 1 : are abnormally large, the logical course, it seems, would be to reduce the mileage of ilic suite system. And that Is precisely what was recommended In the highway audit report In order lo give Arkansas H highway maintenance: responsibility within Its means to handle. Why do we have this unduly larBC stale mileage? That Is a question that iray fairly be asked of the highway authorities who Included 8,705 miles of road In tlie slain system. —Arkansas Uiizetlc.

When you fall on the ont- slrctched hand, special strain i:; put on the ligaments of the wrist jiilnl nnd also on the tendons [which puss across the joint. A sprain of this type Is followed | I by certain dcflnile manifestations j [which aid Hie physician in making I n diHB'iosis. First, there Is no Injury to the bone, as can'be seen hy Ihe X-ray or by Hie lack of symp- ' loms o[ bone injury.. Second, you feel severe pain on motion In certain directions, which Indicates the llgnmenls nnd tendons that have been harmed. In general,- sprains of this kind relieve certain simple forms ot treatment which have.' been found helpful. These Include the nppll- catlon of heat, which brings blood ti> the Joint and nids In removal of swelling and Inflammation: second, restornlion of suitable movement by proper manipulation and mas- J sage. The next most common cause of injury to Ihe wrist is what is named Calles 1 fruclure. after the physician who first described H. These injuries used lo bi 1 exceedingly common when jxiopli' had to crank np their own motor cars. They happened frequently when j the crank jerked back suddenly. | These fractures occur e.ister in j older people than in the young be- I cause the bones of the elderly are j more brittle. A physician takes! care nf a fracluie of this type by j restoring the fragments of the • bone to their proix'r posi'.ion and ! then holding them there until they : are united. ! This usually is none with a splint, but in some cases the use ' of a cast may be necessary.
