That Divorce Slump Records of the Chicago divorce courts show that fewer people get divorces in time of depression than in lima of prosperity. During the ..first nine months of 1932, the divorces grunted in Chicago reached a total 13 per cent below that recorded. for the same period of • 1931. This seems to he, one' of those little by-products of tlie depression Uia't can give rise to a .good deal of speculation, Why should divorces fall oil' in rjad times? Is,;it because'people fire less willing to 'cut loose from an cs- . .tkblished home where there is, what- eVer the drawbacks, at [least a certainty and shelter? Is it because the mere cost of a divorce is iTiore than a lot of would-be divorcees : can afford? • , Or is it, perhaps, because some of '. the ".marital difficulties that seem to * loom so large in ordinary times fade into .insignificance when real troubles arise? - vfnto factories and slave themselves jn- '•to ill health. 'We have let them sub- slut pitifully on starvation rations in mining towns; \vc have huddled them in dreadful city tenements, where the rules of sanitation and privacy arc completely ignored; we have let tlit!r)i bear the brunt of industrial disputes. If there,is one thing the, mass 9!' people in 'America arc thoroughly agreed upon, it is tiiat Communism h'as no place in otir land. H»t that is no reason why we cannot borrow an idea from a Communi.-lic government, if it happens to be a good one; and this notion of Russia's—that it. is the duty of the state to provide every child with a decent chance at' health—is about as good an idea 'as any go'vern- ' .merit could get. . • i ..Is not thai an idea/which a great capitalist nation isn't, capitalism to do. can 'adopt? If it as some explaining —Bruce Gallon. Russia Shows Us the Right Way The best-nourished children in all of Europe, according to a survey made by a group of physicians, are those found .in Soviet Russia. Div'Jc-hn Sundwall of the University of Michigan, summarizing the physicians' findings before a recent meeting of the American Public Health Association, declares that this is due to the health-promoting activities undertaken by the .Soviet government. A lot of news stories have come out of Russia in the past decade. Some of them have been startling, some of them have been of a type to make gods and men weep; but none of them, surely, has been quite as significant as this one about the children. . Nor has ;any of them had a more direct appeal to this country than that one. For we pride ourselves on being a great humanitarian nation. From the winning of our independence onward, we have always kept in mind the kind of world that we would be handing on to our children. The highest dreams of our nation have always centered about that fervent hope that they would .have things just a little bit better than we hurt them. But while we have had this hope, we have been careless about the details. We have let om- children go Out of Debt by Saving and Paying Oat. Economy Enables Fordycc to Pay All Debts. That headline Is a whole volume on the •manngeinent ot public affairs- especially in these times. This Dallas county city has simply used old- fnshloned thrift—snvecl on derating excuses wherever It was possible tmd used the savings to'pay oil its obligations and get free of an interest bill.

Taxes do not furnish enough income to handle Indebtedness and. support government on.its present scale. And refunding debt only postpones the day of reckoning, and by so doing runs the unproductive interest• bill still higher. With Increased taxation out of the question, the " one key to the problem Is to-cut-government living expenses, precisely tile 'step which a private, family of limited Income and. wjitli debts to pay would have to take. v ,. . : . r , ; . -^Arkansas Gazette.
