No doubt lie had a nodding acquaintance with others. Some he piohably met for the time on the trip to Clmmpaitfii. In all events it is not unfair to »ny that this litlle junket was not organized by Mr. Kays bucfiiise of his wnrni personal reganl for his guests, but rather 'because of his interest in matters which will come before the next 'legislfilwc. Jlr. Kays is an able politician as \\cll as mi able college president, lie has done a good job J'or his school in the legislative halls : at Little Rock us well as in llio halls 61' •learning at Jonesboro. We .iire for him HIK! for his college, which he has made an excellent institution and one that renders valuable service to Jibrthmisl Arkansas. But wo are not for his political methods and we are .not for. putting additional public money'into slate owned institutions of higher learning un- Ul the problem of the common schools in Arkansas has been, satisfactorily solved. Colleges are line—especially . goad ones like Arkansas Slate—but, an oppoitunUy for » good' common school, education for all the children of Arkansas should come lirst. We hope the twelve lawmakers' will think of that when they meet at Little Rock next winter r;illier tlmn of the very pleasant tup they made to Champaign as guests of JUr.

Mr. lijuckwood, who elected a governor, ditln't even have that governor's friendship when liie time came for somebody to "tnko the rap." The rats all ran to their holes and Mr. Blackwood w»» the fall guy. He .should have known what would happen. Democracy's Shame Kully 50,000 persons felt that they had to attend the funeral services for "Pretty Boy" Floyd. They got in everybody's way, jammed traffic in the h'tllc Oklahoma town beyond endurance, and made a disgusting spectacle of themselves at the cemetery, where they stolu all the /lowers from, the dead bandit's coffin and nearly got into a free-for-all light over the disposal of these precious' souvenirs. An outburst of this kind is not exactly surprising, considering'the rapt interest that dim-witted folk are hound to feel in the doings of any notorious outlaw. But it is a little bit appalling to learn that there could be so many people within driving distance of one small town who had so little to do with their' spare time. A democracy that will turn out 50,000 strong to sqiMibblo over the (lowers on a dead bandit's coffin is not giving a good indication of its ability to meet a .democracy's problems intelligently. More Money For War With the single exception of Germany, every major power in the world is spending more money today for arms and armies than it was spending just before the World'War broke out. And the armament race that preceded 19H .• is ( given a large, share ot the blame :%. {lip 'coming- of .(that., conflict! This summary is made by the Foreign .Policy Association. Rises in military cxpcjiditures run like this: France, 25.8 per cent; Italy, 2G.3 per tent; Great Britain, 48.8 per cent; United Stales, 190.3 per cent, and Japan, 388 per cent. Germany's expenditures, incidentally, are below the pre-war mark solely because of the Versailles trcatry restrictions. All in nil, Uiis makes a dismal outlook. And our own nation—considering that its military expenses have nearly tripplecl—is hardly in a position to point the linger of scorn at any foreign countries, cither.

One of the chief purposes of the ilood is -lo carry, oxygen thr'ough- niL the body, 'oxygen is drawn in- o the body as part; of. the ni| that Hisses', Into the lungs. Prom the uiigs Ihe blood • carries oxygen lo he llssues In'all ^parts of the, body. .The red blood'\cqll contains a nbstanco called. hemoglobin, ?ivhich s.ablc lo'lake up oxygen and later o give it olf .again, in anemia the umucr''of red blood cells and, the mount, of hemoglobin' are greatly educed. That is one of the 'reasons why x>plc who arc anemic feel cold, vcak, and seem .to lack energy. Vhcn the body Jacks suitable mounts of oxygon, there is short, apld breathing. Usually, whenever there Is nem- rrhagc, the tissues of the body hat are concerned wilh developing 'lood promptly develop enough new 'lood to take'care of the loss that ms occurred. The time rcnuircd ivcn after n fairly large Iiemor- hage is only a few weeks, In case of very large hcmorrhag- es, however, it is customary to give a blood transfusion and thus to restore the blood volume promptly* * * in cases of disease which destroy the blood, such as cancer or Icn- keuila or serious Infections, it is customary to discover tlie cause and to remove that cause. Measures directed at Hie blood will not be successful. There are, however, certain kinds or anemia in which the bloort simply [ails to develop new Wood o3lls to • lake the place of those that are worn out. Fortunately, it lias been discovered Hint Inci-c arc certain substances _-whIc)i will stimulate the bloMi-fonnlng organs, wi.en they arc failing to keep up their work, and overcome the anemic condition. Jn some cases (lie trouble seems to lie in tlic fnct that tlic stomach has lost the ability to secrete tile acid needed for suitable digestion. When Uic slomacli juices act on certain foods, particularly on meal products, such as lean meat and liver, a substance is developed which stimulates ttie formation of red blood cells, it also serves lo liberate iron In u form which can be used by tlie blood lo build hemoglobin. Iron can be given directly in the form of a medicine which wjli help to overcome some forms ot anemia. In others, liver extract can bs given by mouth or by injection and serves to aid the development of red blood c:lls in an amount furii- cicnt for tlie needs of the bnriy. This new knowledge of the nature and treatment of anemia has conic lo be one of the greatest discoveries of modern medicine. For their work in connection \vilh controlling anemia the American investigators, Afltiot, Whipijtc, and Murphy, have just received ttie Nobel prize.
