Dioorce and Our "Reno" Law Divorce in itself is not so much an evil as it U tiiu result, ol' iiiruvil. When a man anil a woman come to Hie decision that life together i* iiisufi'erablc the di'.nuitfe has b:cn (lone, iiiul laws Hint attempt to make them live together as man ami wile cannot servo any worthwhile moral or practical purpose. Some religious organizations have the belief that divorce is contrary to the law of God. No civil law should be" necessary for them. For others, who hold no such belief, the- law should, be such as to prevent hasty ami unconsidered action, and to protect so far as possible the rights of both parties, and particularly of children. We hope the above will not be interpreted as a defense of our stale's so-called "Reno" divorce law. That law has nothing to do with the conditions under which-citizens of Arkansas may obtain release from chafing conjugal tics. It is simply an attempt tn obtain for certain residents of this state pecuniary profit from the domestic difficulties of residents of other states. If the law is submitted to u referendum we believe the voters of this slat; will preserve their self- respect' and the dignity of the commonwealth by refusing to concur in the action of the legislature. Nevada is a desert. Nobody would go there were it not for such dubious attractions as quick and easy divorces • and public gambling. Arkansas 'can build ,her prosperity on better foundation;. Fear and World Peace • The mind of the militarist works in a peculiar manner. _ The ordinary mortal cannot hope to understand; all he can do is watch anrl marvel, and pray that some day enlightenment will come to him. i General Ludendovff the other day expressed himself, once more, on the causes of the World War; and he revealed his sincere belief that war came becatis; Geimany was not sufficiently prepared. To be sure, Germany's war strength in 1014 numbered 5,000,000 soldiers. But universal conscription, says the OUTOURWAY general, existed in Germany "only on paper." This imposing array of soldiery constituted only 54 per cent of Germany's potential man power. Furthermore, the general .says, other nations knc\v thai Germany was neglecting her defenses; knew thai shu had nowhere near as 'large an army as she might, have hnd. This, he says, induced Fiance and Russia to provoke an attack on her, in the hope that they might catch her napping. Germany's military weakness, fnj fact, was a cause of the war, in that it led Germany's cnomics to jump on her. Thus we are left to draw the amazing conclusion that if Germany's army in 191*1 had' only been composed of eight or nine million men, instead of a measly live, the itcaco of the world would have remained unbroken. Absurd as al) of this is, General hti- dcndord' is merely expressing the stock argument of the militarists. JInke your military establishment so overwhelmingly strong that no one will even dream of making war ou you, and you arc safe; that is the credo. General Ludcnciorrt' has simply expressed it in its most extreme form. • The argument tloos not go over as well now as it did a generation ago. A world impelled by fear to keep the pence does not look attractive nowadays, and there nro more people than there used to be to suspect'that such a peace woiiHI be unstable. Fear, a usable force in world affairs, is selling at a new low. \Ve have not yet carried this new attitude far enough, however. In domestic affairs we still lean on the power of fear. We plnn to keep crime down by making people afraid to break the law. We plan to keep public officials honest by holding over them the fear of being caughl cheating. We try to make our neighbors think and talk a.s the majority thinks and talks, for fear of a hostile public sentiment. Will a tirno conic wjien we take a.s sensible an attitude toward the use of fear in these holds as we. are now beginning to take in the field of international relations? If and when it does we shall have an infinitely healthier society. MON'DAY, MARCH 30, 1931 SIDE GLANCES .

Republican leaders privately admit that Hoover isn't the easiest man in the world to "celi" on his surface personality. It Is difllcult. they concede, to mnk? people realize how warm his heart roaliy is ouil hard to make the president himself co-operate when anyone wants to present his "human side."

Nevertheless, they ajrcc IV.nt somclhiniT certainly ought ID b-j done about it and they have presented, the case lo Hoover himself. There is seme indication that I Homer has realized the force of the argument.
