Teacher Retirement A wise and humane step was taken by the Arkansas legislature this year in, setting up a retirement compensation system for public school teachers. The measure, should • prove beneficial . in two ways. It will protect teachers, whose salaries for the. most part are too low to permit them to save much, against privation in old age. And it will 'help to eliminate the problem of the teacher who has outlived her usefulness but who is reengaged from year to year simply because her school job is her only means of livelihood. Under the plan, which will become ed'eclive in 1928, teachers with iv rce- . ord of 25 years of service will:become .eligible to retirement on part pay upon reaching the age of 60, provided • they have contributed four per cent of their salaries, from the dale of the act's-'effectiveness,'to the retirement fund. Teachers' contributions to the fund will be matched by ail equal'sum from the state common .school fund.'Participation in the retirement plan is voluntary for teachers now employed in Arkansas schools. It is to be hoped, however, that few will remain out. No risk of loss, is involved, as teachers retiring before the expiration of 25 years will be entitled to withdraw all the money they have: paid in, tholigh naturally'they ,\yill. not share in state funds. Ultimately all teachers , in the schools of the state will be pro- (ccted by the retirement system, as participation in it is mandatory for all new teachers. War's Gentle Side . * i .A device thai blossomed in the World War is said to be proving unite successful in the Spanish conflict. It is the dropping of propaganda over enemy lines. Such literature contains 'invitations to desert, and describes temptingly the splendid treatment that prisoners receive. Because of its success, the idea may be used to greater extent in future wars. And, though propaganda generally serves no good purpose;, it is pos- •sible that this practice might be an exception. For one thing, war prisoners are apt to get better treatment, since-their captors naturally will want word of it to spread to the enemy and spur defection from the ranks. And at the very worst it is a little more human to beat your enemy by luring his men nway with soft words then by blowing his insidcs out with high explosive. SATURDAY, MARCH 20 1930 Army Life De Luxe A new European war may, as they lju coining up over Llic horizon at frightcniiiK speed; until it actually arrives, its shadow is going to' make the lot of the British Tommy a great deal more pleasant. The British are enlarging their army to meet the danger, and they have been finding' young men very reluct- . an{ to enlist. Army life tends to be hare and Spartan, and the young Englishman likes his • comforts. So the government is out lo make the buck private happy. War Minister Alfred DufY Cooper recently explained the plan in Parliament. The army is'going lo start serving four meals a day, instead of . three; barracks are to be mo'cierni'/.ed and equipped with bathrooms and reading rooms. Butter will replace Tiiai'gfU'iiie in the army kitchens. Fresh milk -will be served daily. Domestic help will be hired to scrub out canteens/thereby' relieving Tommy of one of his most disliked jobs. Altogether, the British soldier will- bo leading a pretty (ine life after this ... as long as peace lasts.' Martial Month April this year brings us to the 20th anniversary of America's declaration of war on imperial Germany. A great many things could be said about that anniversary; but at the moment what occurs to us is chiefly the odd, .sinister fate that seems to hang over the month of April in American history. The American revolution began on April 19, 1775, with the battle of Lexington. The war with iMexico got under way on April 2<i, 18.10. The first shot in the Civil War was tiro 1 ;! on "April 12, 1861; Lee surrendered and Lincoln was shot almost exactly four years later, in April of 1865. The war with Spain began on April 21, 18D8. And we got into 'the World War on April G, 1917. What kind of jinx is it that makes this .month of April so momentous in America's tale of wars?

"Just which man are you going alter tonight?" Jennifer inquired shortly. "Must I .he after a' man?". Daphne asked, snapping the enamel case. "Aren't you usually?" Jennifer got up and greeted Anne briefly. Then she went into the bedroom and closed the door after her. Daphne took oft the cape with a gesture of hopelessness. I wonder if really we do hale each other, she thought. And then instantly she was sorry that she had permitted herself Uial small question. She knew that siie loved Jennifer. Wasn't she doing this for Jennifer? "So far, so good," Anne said from the window. "I'd call that test No. 1. And here comes our second victim. The Carlerets are arriving." Daphne called through the closed bathroom door, "Jennifer, the Cartercls are on their way up and we've got to go on immediately. Shall I ask Jules to return for you?" "Don't bother," Jennifer said "I want to rest, about 11:30." Dsphnc with her placed Mr. Hammer at her left, Mrs. Cartcret at Herzbcrg's right, Anne opposite her, and Frank Rossiter at the next place. That meant that Larry, or now Lockheed, would have to be between Mrs. Carteret and Jennifer with Mrs. Hammer next to ... * « * T)UT would it be a good idea to throw this unknown man into conversation with ... or should she switch Mr. Hammer; no, she couldn't, because he was her guest of honor. Daphne scratched her ear below the sculptured curls. "Oh, dear," she said and took her first sip of the champagne, "I guess I wasn't cut out to be a hostess. I never do seem to know where taplace people.". "Want any help?" Kit said. "Don't let's bother." Daphne van ted only two . things. One hat Herzberg would be at her ide and away from Jennifer. And he other, that if Larry were there e would be far enough awayfrom icr so that she wouldn't have to ook up and have him see her eyes, but now Larry was not coming id that ... , The waiter Brett." She rose. "Our men seem to have arrived."

As a mutter of form, she hac .whispered, "Miss vail. She knew his name but she couldn't say it. "I'm glad you decided you could come," she said and held out her hand to him. "Daphne," Larry clung to her hand but he didn't say anything else. This \V.BS a new Daphne. This "Oh, darling, there you are." She went right to Larry and fook-='| his arm. "Daphne this is Mr. Herzberg. My sister, Gordon." Daphne gave Gordon Herzberg, her Uand and a smile as radiant "• as Jennifer's.

"I'm monopolizing you," said, "Mr. Herzberg; you're g to sit at my right." ' "How did you know that where I wanted to be?

"It keeps her occupied." Daphne was conscious of the inanity of d all but the furious pounding in her bosom, the close tightness in her throat seemed to block ofl'her mind. She couldn't think of anything to say. She couldn't even ask him about himself.

(UP) — novel method of. testing gadgets designed to determine the capabilities of automobile drivers has been devised by Col. Michael A. Connor, state motor vehicle commissioner for Connecticut. Connor lias summoned 400 drivers to appear at the "drivers' clinic" for re-examinations. Half ot Ills drivers have good records, ihc others bad, and therein lies the novelty, for should good drivers fail in the tests and bad drivers pass, the machines will be ruled out as impractical. Tests are not compulsory. Those that do report will te subjected to a two-hour examination which will include tests of eyesight, hearing, spscd of reaction, judgment of distance. Newly invented machines, including a type wherein the subject sits behind pseudo-controls an drives an imaginary car over ; roacl which is flashed upon ; screen, are used.
