Let's Think Through Mailer of'Rights' ix r o time is so hard to live in a* one in which people change-their ideas without realizing that they arc dohiB it. And one of the things thai make life so perplexing today is Die fact that we have unconsciously moved toward a now viewpoint on a lot of important matters. There is, for instance, the matter of the strike; of such a thing as llu; General Motors siUibwn .strike, to bo specific. There can be no shadow ol' a doubt that the sildown at Flint, Mich., was illegal. The sildowncrs simply took possession of property not theirs and refused to give it up until their demands were met. There is nothing in our law to give the slightest countenance to such a course. . And yet it is perfectly obvious that the sitdowners did. not look on themselves as lawbreakers. .And the Michi• jjaii authorities did not move to throw them out as lawbreakers, even though they had nVourt order'to do so. » * * Why? Is it because our whole attitude toward jobs and property rights has undergone a subtle change—a change of which we were hardly conscious until the trouble at'.Flint forced it on our attention? We are beginning, in other words, to feel that this whole' business of. "rights" is a great deal njore complex • t*au we used to suppose. • A sample of our changed altitude can he found in. the much-discussed "bootleg coal mines" of Pennsylvania. Jobless minors have gone into closed pits, taken out coal, and sold it, in order to keep alive. The whole business is technically as illegal as the stealing of money from a bank. Yet the governor of Pennsylvania has refused to use slate troops to stop it, and public sentiment in general has supported him. Again, why? Is it because people have melt that justice, somehow, was on the side of the minors? Their right to work at the only jobs they . knew has somehow looked superior to the mine-owners' right to close their mines, even though there is nothing in our law to countenance it. * -* * Now all this does not mean that the Flint sitdowners had complete and' un- OUT OUR WAY sullied justice on Uieir side. It does mean that -we cannot h&pe to understand this new iactor in labor relations unless we realize that this slosv change in ntLiliitlc lias, been linking PIIICC. ! '• Our job.-rifhL now is to think the tiling through, to asccrliiin just where job-right and property-right cut, across each other, and lo decide precisely how far <juv attitude toward the working mini's relation to his < job needs to tic altered to lit changing times. —Bruce Catton. MotH/nel /'or Governor Whatever else may be said about the General Motors strike settlement, it must at least be admitted that Michigan's Gov. Frank Murphy has stamped himself as a broad-gauge, .constructive olllcc holder who really deserves the -much-abused title, statesman. Governor Murphy was-not in the most enviable spot in the world when the nlrike broke, lie was new in his office. The ' templation lo dodge, lo slide otit from under and let the federal government handle it, to lake refuge behind platitudes and avoid the risk of burning his lingers on an uncommonly hot polato, must have been tremendous. A small man would un- ipicstionably have given way to it. But not Governor Murphy. He had (he idea that this dispute could be settled peaceably, on a basis reasonably satisfactory to both sides, around the council'table. In the end, it was so settled; and Governor Murphy deserves a great deal of credit for the fuel. To Handle Highway Bond iRefunding Certain things should be borne in mind when the legislature act.s upon the measure to provide for refunding Arkansas' higluvny Indebtedness: Carl B. Bailey was virtually commissioned by the people of Arkansas lo undertake this great work for the state. Governor Dnlley, as will be realized by all who know of his activities in life, business as well ns legal, Is especially mid peculiarly qualified to handle this matter for the slate. Primary authority should be put In his hands and he should be held responsible for results. If refunding were handled by seven ofTicials- thc constitutional, ollicers and the bank commissioner-Ilia people could not hold anyone " directly and Inescapably responsible. Private business gets results by finding the rislil man for the Job and holding him sW-tly accountable. Fortunately for Arkansas at a .time of far-reaching opportunity for tremendously improving the slate's financial situation, it lias the right nmn for (he job. • ' —Arkansas Gazette.

L. W.: This is absurd, as though n elderly woman like myself could murder a man and push him out ol (he porthole. > * « T/~. You're only 55, Lady Welter, • and a strong, well-prcseri'ed woman at lhat. Let me assure you from my police experience that many a woman with less physical slrcngth than yourself could have done this business and in your ease the motive was there. Moreover, there is no check on your movements from the time you came below with the bishop at 7:05 until you arrived in the lounge changed at ,8:05 on the night of Blanc's death. L.W.: Oh, yes there is, young man. My maid was with me, helping me to dress for dinner. K.: Ah, now lhat puls a very different complexion on it, but why didn't you tell me that before, Lady Welter? L.W.r Because I didn't think yon could he such a fool as' to suspect a woman like myself of a crime lika this. K.: Was she with you the whole\ 1 ;,..,. t : ^ $ K: Come Lady Welter. I between 7:45 and (!:10. There was much more time for him lo have done this'job than me. K.: He hndn'l got your motive. R.: He cerlainly hud. He's always lived above his income. For Ihe last five years he'. 1 -' been en- lirely dependent on Lady Welter. She's jii n jam because of those fool papers she vims. She loses a j packel on them every year, yet, she won't give them up because she just lives for ibis Christian crusading business. If I'd failed lo dt> a deal wilh Blanc she would have gone under with ine and young Jocclyn wc:.'ld have found himsdf on his uppers. 'He. stood to benefit just as much by Blanc's death as I did. More, in fact, because even if Rocksav- age Consolidated had gone down the drain I have other resources. K.: I get your point, Mr. Rock- savage. R.: How about the Jap, too? K.: How about him? R.: Well, he stood In io lose a million dollars if Blnuc had lived long enough to come lo an arrangement with me. K.: I'd certainly like to hear some more about that, Mr. Rock- savage. R.: It's tins way. Officially he's acting for the Shikoku people and lie's been trying to sell me the Japanese soap monopoly on the:';behalf for months' past, but he's hope you're feeling a little more reasonable this morning. I've got to ask you a few more questions and the sooner you realize that rudeness and obstruction will only prolong the ordeal the better it will be for you. L. W.: I find all this most'tire- some. I've already told you that I know nothing whatsoever about this man Blanc's death. X.: It hasn't occurred to you I suppose that you might be charged with it? L. W.: What! I! You're mad, my man. I shall report you. K.: You can make any report you like but it won't alter the fact .hat yr.u had :i very strong motive for wishing Bolilho Diane out of. the- way. L. W.: This is ridiculous. K.: Not at all. You lost a big portion of your fortune in 1929, you've been paying up the losses on these papers which you run for years and now you are up against it, because the Rocksavage companies in which the remainder of your money is invested passed their dividend last year. Owing lo Blane's death Rocksavage is back on his feet again and you with him. L.W.: Well, if that is so Mr. playing ball with do Rocksavagc benefits by this man [Blanc's death just as much as I -'-i.- K.: You're ^wrong there. Rock- savage has other, assets outside his soap companies, whereas you haven't, so motive is stronger in crowd your case. L. W.: No, I rang for her when I reached my cabin and she was with me for about half an hour, until I had finished dressing. K.: Wait a moment, then, lhat only gets us to about 7:35, and we know Blanc was alive at 7:45. Yon wore already changed and you had 20 minutes, therefore, in 'vhich you might have done llii, Jt o before arriving in the loiin??- L. V.'.: I was in my cabin ihe whole xime. K.: So you say, Lady, but I want proof of that- and, II you're a wise woman, you'll do your best to produce if. L. W.: Proof! But how can anybody prove such a thing? You nust fake my word for it. K.: I'm afraid I want something more than .thai. What were you doing all that time? L. W.: Well, if you must know, } was knitling n jumper. 1 only had £?] one sleeve to do so 1 thought 1 would finish it before I went up to dinner. K.: Can you give me any proof of that? L. W.: Yes. My maid know? just how far I had got with the jumper before I dressed that evening and 1 left it finished on the table for her lo press when I left my cabin half an hour later. 1C.: Can you produce Ihe juniper , Lady Welter? f ) L. W.: Yes. V ' K.: All right. That'll do for the moment . <To ; Bc -'Continued) Save this installment as evidence to help you solve the crime.

The disease resembles diphtheria iv many ways. Symptoms arc likely to appear first in the Ihront. '' is an infections condition, pjiss- iroai one person to another. And jt comes on rather suddenly, ::.v.:n!!y during epidemics that are worse hi winter or fall. of die cases develop in children between five and 12 \curs of age who usually have been in contact \vith others who hart the disease. As in diphtheria- eases n baby undoubtedly gets in his biocd. from its mother, substances which enable him to resist t-carlet lever from the time of birth until he is about one of n^e Then the resistance begins to wAi off. Sciirlet fever is one of those diseases which you arc not hkoiy lo have a second time. QM attack of hclps-you build In your bony substances which aid you to resist further attacks. .Tlic story of an attack of.Har- lot lever is rather typical. From two lo four days after yon have been in contact with a Kailel fever viclim. you develop a rhili. then tore, with ;-on>.t niu-' E£2- -and vomiting. Promptly your pulse becomes rapid. Fever iiies as high as 102 or 104 degrees. With this there are the usual symptoms of acute infection. Now- bright red spots about the size of a pin point begin to appear, usually on Ihe neck and chest. The eruption spreads rapidly over the rest of your body. Your face also appears red, but ordinarily because of the fever and not the eruption. After two or three days the rash begins to fade, and in about n week your skin is noimal in color. The next slop affecting the skin is the peeling or scaling, which takes place 10 days to two weeks after the disease first appears. Great patches of skin may come off the hands and feet; over the rest of the body, the skin usually peels off in small tcalcs. Most people are Interested in knowing whether the scales or the skin that peels off is important in .sprcnntnt; scarlet fever. Apparently it cioe.s not contain Ihe germs reiponsible. and will not spread the disease unless it has been contaminated with secretions of Ihe no>e and throat. These .secretions do contain the germs and will themselves spread the. disease or, by contamination of skin, ntcn.sils, or other material, aid in (lie spread.
