Npw it is not to be titicstinncd that in the present state of jiffnirs it is probably belter for some members of society to live in idle comfort than for others to be compelled to go hungry because of enforced idleness, but surely ours 1- an upside down society if its welfare is better served by some of its members leading parasitic u.xi.stcnces than by all contributing to the furnishing of goods and services for the lack of which many jtrc suffering. One lesson the past four years sliould have taught us is thut production for prpfit defeuts its own end if it destroys the balance between production and consumption. From the .standpoint of the national welfare, which means thi! welfare of the people who are the nation, the only rational purpose of production is consumption. When we learn to conduct our affairs as if we understood the truth of that proposition there will be opportunity for all to work so long ns any human need . or desire remains unsatisfied. r,v/ Must Cut Expenses First A proposed amendment to (lie constitution of Arkansas which will have a strong appeal to many persons is one providing for the exemption from taxation of homesteads, defined as city lots 50 by 150 feet, or >IO acres of farm property, occupied by the owner. Encouragement of home ownership is to be desired, and to the extent Hint this amendment would help city workers and small farmers to own their own homes it is a worthy proposal, but before voting for it citizens of Arkansas oi'gbt to ask thcmsulv.es whe.re the revenue for the oiioratian of their schools and the conduct of their local governments is coming from if it should be made part of the cou- [ Stitutkm, A survey has shown that adopt ion ' of this amendment would reduce KOII- DUTOURWAY oral properly lax receipts, chief source of school and anility revenues, l ( y about IJO JUT cent.

A physician can usually do this conveniently, if the substance Is soft l:ke a bean, by grasping It with a forceps. However. In the case of such hard objects as buttons or pieces c! chalk. Ihe manipulation in the nose may be harmful. Under such circumstances, It l s frequently necessary to put the child to sleep ulth an anesihetic. In some casps the use of a little local anesthetic' to the membranes of the nose will permit Ihe withdrawal of the foreign body. Under such circumstances it is usually well to wrap the child's body tightly in a sheet to prevent tossing nnd throwing of the arms. Any foreign substnnce inhaled into the tubes that lead to the hint's or into the lungs themselves constitutes an immediate menace to life. Under such c:r- cumstnncjs there must not be delay.
