Our Prison Population '•• Depression or no, one of society's activities seems to bo thriving tlii-i .year more than ever. Undo Sam's qmson. population li;is reached a now $igli, in spite of a parole and probation system whi c h was. exacted to TJjelp reduce, it. 'j: Federal .'prisoners under confinc- jpicnt at the end of August, according Jo a report just made public in Washington'! numbered 26,192—1300 more •than at. the end of August in 1931. -There were 3401 more on parole and 33,168 on probation—just' under 10,7000 more than were in those categories a year ago. *. A prolonged depression! of course, Inevitably leads to an augmented "crime •wive." -Hungry, homeless men are not as law-abiding as men who have steady .Jobs. But whatever the explanation •rtiay be, the figures by themselves arc Deeply discouraging. . •r//flj the Depression Toughi. . •. ..•.; The 'most profoundly discouraging -remarks, sometimes, come from the lips •of optimists. - A short time ago an economist is- Isuett a statement about business con- jJitions. He took a rosy view of things. ilhe depression through \yhich we have Jwcn traveling, he explained,' )\gs_nojt' ^n inexplicable world-shattering' 'ttif- jttstrophe. It was simply a normal re. jicession in activity. We would be out :W it presently, and a few years hence we -.would meet another very like it. Such Viings just l > 'happen, he cou- . eluded, andf-.there is 'no use getting ex• cited abo:it :them, because nobody can .prevent) them." , All of this was meant to be opliin- 'ism. .But very few people have ever given us a darker view of our econ- ,pmic status. :•• . ' * » * : Probably the one thing that has preserved the stability of the great mass of Americans tlirqugh the past three years has. been tlie belief that out of this economic disaster we would draw knowledge by which wo cotdd avoid similar disasters in the future. It has been felt that we are working our way, -very painfully ami slowly, toward a planned society, in which security . ^yould be something more than an 'empty word. Probably it is chielly for that reason lh«l tliere lias been not the slightest danger of a revolution, or anything resembling one. Now conies our optimist fo assure us that all of this is just in the comve of nature, and that our children, a generation hence, will go through exactly what we have been going, through now. Depressions are inevitable anil we must refuse to let tlieni bother us. A depression, ol 1 course, means one thing to a comfortably situated gentleman who never knows what it is to go hungry, to lack « place to sleep or to worry about liow his family is going to iind means to exist; and it means something entirely different to a wage-earner who lias lost his job, his savings, his home and his hope. Those of us who have been lucky must never forget that difference. —linicc Gatton. Japan's State of Mind The fact that great numbers of Japanese have become all excited because officials of the branch of an American bank, in Tokyo, tool; some photojji-apbs of Japanese business and industrial buildings recently, shows how large small mnUei'j may bulk when public- opinion is inltamcd. It is perfectly obvious, of course, that there was no ulterior motive behind the taking of those pictures. Rut, the Japanese public believes that the United States is' getting all set for a war with Japan. U points to the fact that the U. S. fleet is concentrated in the Pacific. It repeats, rumors about mysterious American aviation stations in the Aleutian Islands. And it sues in these photographs evidence of preparations for air raids on the Japanese capitol.'' Matters being so, it surely behooves Americans in the Orient to take especial pains in the near future to avoid strengthening Japanese fears. The Tax Remedy We sincerely believe thai when Judge Futrell gets through there won't be any necessity for shitting taxes or levying additional ones. A thorough house-cleaning at the stale capitol, and Hie abolishing of every single useless bureau or department will turn the trick. * * * The people want relief.. ..not ndciltlorml taxes or shifted taxes. And we arc not soiiig to believe that the people of Arkansas nre going to full for the nattering promises miulc by the sponsors o[ the sales tax. We don't believe they nrc going to vote' for a tax on meat and bread, clothes and shoes.... n lax Hint would lull henvily on the unfortitniUc.s who tortny arc badly in need or the necessities of life. What many people in Arkansas need Is bread nnd meat, warm dollies nnrt shoes and not n (ax on these necessities. —Pine Blurr Commercial. It may take the return of tlie liquor traffic, a liquor orgy, ucfora they (the stales) nvo convinced that conditions are best under prohibition. —Dr. William Hyde Russell, founder of Anti-Saloon League. * * * I have demonstrated what I set out to prove. that Is, the superiority of British airplane manufacturers. -Captain Jnincs A.

Electric Needle of Removing BY DE MOCRI8 F1SHBS1N < Editor, J«onul «f tbe Amtiku MHkal AMacUUe*, ajrf of Hy- ' ttU, the Health Maiailns The mott widely us-?d and zatisl method for the destruction of superfluous hair Is the clsclric n«- dle. 'ihs success of this method depends largely on the length of time that, ean be given to the process and on the skill of the opsralor. No matter how carefully the work is done, there are occasional cases In which very light scarring may occur. Tl* X-r«y has been ussd to destroy hair, but the method is considered .to be especially dangerous because of the possibility of killlns of the cells of the skin or stimulating the growth of the cells to tha point of the app3aranrc of cancer. Thallium preparations, recently Introduced, have been discarded by the medical profession because of their danger. There are cases of serious poisoning by this substance. Another method in common use which will remove the rair, bsit not permanently, is the use of waxes which are spread on the skin s=ft and which are-th«n pulled of! after 'he wax hardens, when the wax Is pulled off'the hair comes out. This. °f course, may be associated with the possible danger of destruction of ^the skin. In most instances, because the "hair roots are not destroyed, the hair returns. There are also such methods as the use of depilatories of chemical character which burn off the h»ir, and the use of the pumice stone I method which Involves cutting of I the hair to skin level and theii cori- ! stnnt rubbing with a fine pumice stone. This m?thod tends to coars- Safest Means Unwanted Hair en the skin and sometimes the pumice deposits In the pores and glv^s an unsightly appearance. The besl authorities do not recommend plucking the hairs for the reason that this may alter the reel position in relationship ta t.u shaft of the hair and the operatoi finds it difficult to locate the position of ths root from the angle y. the hair. This may require s?v;ra. applications of tr.e electric n3"u: before the hair is finally destroyed Th« question often asked ";• whether or not there are any harm lul effects from the use of tba clecv trie needle. Dr. Agn?j Savlll c' England, who has done a great d"a' of tuts K-ark. says, that there an occasional cases in which there 1 ptgrnenting after the needle ha been ussd.

Soviet Postpones Opening Of Huge Electric Pla:;!: MOSCOW (UP) — The ofliclnl opening of the Unlcperstrol hydro-electric station has been postponed to October.

I suppose a man of my knowledge ami ability could learn something from a man of my hired man's mentality. There was plenty of his type In the church I man- as ed so long and they were always ready to give what they called advice and I suppose if I had taken their advice, I would have gotten things muddled long before I did or rather they said.l did it but I have always felt thai when n fellow was running a thing he hart better muss It up himself ra- Ihor than listen to a lot of advice. I "remember one time before ,wc had lost so many members a loi of them advised me to get some preacher in and hold a revival. They made such a fuss lhat I finally gave in, then- they all wnnted to help me make plans nnd nrrnngcments.

Rabbits Antidote for Poisonous Toadstools PARIS (UP)—If Professor Henri Limousin, chief of tte School of Medicine of CIcrmont-Fcrrjwrt is right, v'e won't need to \vorry aboul whether we cat mushrooms, or Just plain toadstools lor he claims to have an -antidote for poisoning from th? latter. He has been studying the question for over ten years in collaboration with Dr. Dugarrlc de la Hlvicrc. and has found that rabbits which ntc poisonoiur mushrooms, even deadly varieties, frit no bad ctlrcU. Domestic cats were found also to enjoy the same Immunity. When n family of Serbian peasants WAS brought to Dr. Limousin after his successful study of the rabbits nnrl cats, he' decided to make a further test. Tto father died before the treatment was ap- pli:d, but the mother and two children were saved. The antidote consists simply of two doses of rabbit brains and intestines.
