Looking Ahead The close vole by whicli Cavl E. Bailey won the nomination for j*o\ r - crnor last August is no measure of the public support, which ho now enjoys. Ho takes office today with the confidence and good will of the people of Arkansas and with the opportunity, the legislature co-operating, to lead this state rapidly forward on the road' to progress. We do not agree on every point with the program which lie has outlined for his administration. In the main, however, it is eminently sound and constructive. It will be the duty of the general assembly to analyze such proposals as may come to it from the governor and to reject or modify any which it finds impracticable "or undesirable. \Vo hope and trust, ', however, that the legislature will approach-its relations ,with the new executive in an attitude of friendliness and co-operation. The legislature is under no mandate to approve every suggestion lie may make, but it should at lets! leceivo thtfm with ah open mind and with a desire to work with the governor for the best interests of the state. Arkansas is emerging from the dc. pression period with its public iirmnces in better condition than they were at the beginning of that period. For that condition a great debt is due the outgoing governor, to whose insistence iiporTciH-tuilmenl of public expenditures it is chiefly due. . But the 'state is ' '.faced with many grave problems. Gov, crnor Bailey has demonstrated an understanding of them and a desire to be instrumental in their solution. As business recovery continues it is to l>c expected that state revenues will increase and the new executive 'will have at his disposal enlarged means with which to attack such questions • as public education, provision for the aged and others unable to care for themselves, prison reform, industrial' and agricultural development, and others whicli press for attention. Arkansas faces a future which offers opportunities for economic and social progress and development exceeding anything in its past. No man can say just where that future will lead but Governor Bailey seems to have caught the vision of its possibilities. The state and its people have been awaiting a leader on the forward path. May their hope that they have found- one be not disappointed. BLYTIIEV1LLE, (AKK.)' COURIER NEWS OUT OUR WAY Too Muck Enthusiasm Perhaps another congressman is beginning Lo realize that neophyte .solons, like children, should be seen and not heard. Because his speeches during the late campaign were interpreted as giving aid and comfort to the opposition, Senator Hush Holt of West Virginia earned the ill-feeling of many of his colleagues and was deprived of the patronage that would have been his had he not been obstreperous. And because his lone objection delayed passage of a resolution which might have hulled ship'mcnt of a cargo of war materials to Spain, Representative John Toussaint Bernard, new Farmcr-Laboritu congressman from Duhith, Minn., may be the target of his colleagues' resentment. The enthusiasm of freshmen congressmen is commendable, but it is apt to get them into difficulties. Will li End War? If the German-Italian plaii for hiking the danger of u world war out of tho Spanish situation should be put into effect, one wonders just who Avoukl bo left to do the acUml fighting. • . Under this plan, nil soldiers but actual .Spaniards would be taken out of the peninsula, leaving the Span- iiirds to fight- it out among the'mselves. But at present the best estimates have it that at least 50,000 foreigners are taking part in the lighting.- The shock troops in tlie assault on Madrid »ro foreign; Ihc best columns of the defending army are foreign; almost all the ' aviators on both sides are ; i Is ' there, perhaps, an outside chance that if all the foreign lighters went home, the Spaniards might decide that they had done enough lighting, and so end the whole tragic mess?

Great Excess of Red Blood Cells May Lead lo Serious Symptoms BV 1111. MOKKIS „... Ertilor, Journal r.f the American Medical Association, and of IlygcKi, the- Health Magazine Diseases of Ihe blood concern deficiencies or cxccssrs in ils various elements. When the red blood cells are Increased far above the normal smoui\t, the condition '- called polycytheiiita. As I have already said, the average number of red blood cells Is about 5,000,000 to 6,000,000 In each cubic millimeter of blood, in poly- cythemla.- the number may increase to as:many as 15.000,000 lu each cubic millimeter. Obviously, the presence of such large numbers of red cells makes H difficult for the'blood u> now and may be associated with serious symptoms. A slight increase in red blood cells Is found In certain chronic diseases and ako is associated with slight degrees of poisoning in various cases. Usually such slight Increases Indicate u m i - the body Is trying to make up for lack of oxygen. * « t There also are inslancrs In which the total number of red blood cells Is not actually increased, but In which thcv are so concentrated in the blood ns to give a much higher red cell count For example, there may be cases m which the blood loses great amounts of water became of diarrhea, as In cholera, or In which the body has failed to get sufficient water.

Involuntarily Betty's eyes turned to the huddled form lying on the floor. "Yes, but it was Ramon Vasquez. Not de Forest," Bob told her. "Look, de Forest." lie pointed to a small, shining object nearby. Pearl John stooped and picked it up. Then he looked around on the Moor until he found a tiny square of paper. "The signet ring," he said. "It disappeared the night my oldest .brother was killed." He held out his hand, and they: saw the ring with ils top open like a tiny lid. "This went inside," he explained, holding out the,pa'pei;, "It tells the location of the'de'Forest fortune—the money came from Captain Pierre de Forest's hoard of valuable pearls.

Coinc on." * * « JJALF an hour later Pearl John, Bob and Betty sat in the library, weaving the loose c-nds of the mystery of Thunder Mesa together. Belly told the part Angelique had played and joth men found it easy to understand the Spanish girl's motive as they watched the firelight glowing on Betty's lovely face. "But how did either Angelique or the Indian know about the secret panel in the wall?" asked Pearl John. "We might ask Broken Shield," Bob suggested. i They all went lo the tiny room in tlie servant's quarters where Broken Shinld was held under guard. Much to their surprise, they found him willing- lo talk. Evidently.he hadidecided his life was about over .'and Hi did not make much difference what he said.

Sponsors of this addition to the school curriculum include Principal William von Lcverne, Rabbi David Aronson of Beth El Synagogue, and Mrs. Annie Brown Morris and Mrs. Rivia Hurwile, teachers. An unusual situation at the school prompted adding of the new subject. The school is marte up of 57 per cent Jewish young- atl antelope, slers and 43 per cent Genlile. Each group was discovered lo be uninformed of the religious ob- servances'of the other. "We are faced with a situation uncommon In a public schol ftt high altitudes, inhaling carbon Lcverne said.

There are certain unusiml tropical diseases in whicli the spleen becomes . very much enlarged and in which there is'also a tremendous Increase in the number of red blood cells. The victim of such a disease appears constantly flushed, but with a blue rather than red appearance.
