'The Liquor Problem When (lie Arkansas general assembly K' ; ls iirouml lu Uio li<|iior issue, as unquestionably it will sometime dining the current session, the members will do well to keep in mind Hint Uio question before tlmm is not whether or not alcoholic beverages lire to be available in this sHuto but bow anil under 'what. ciiTiinistiince.s they arc lo be available. , lYohiljiliun in Arkansas is a dead 'Idler, Liquor is sold and consumed in approximately the quantities it would be were there no law against it. No 'one who wants it, so far as we have been able (o observe, goes without i(. Even here in ISlythcvillc, less than a half •' mile. 1 ;' from wet Missouri, legally inanufaetured liquor can be bought at prices that meet or beat the competition of licensed dealers across the line. The traffic here is slill pretty much an. undercover business. In .some Arkansas towns, notably I lot Springs, it is as open as the dry goods trade. If you think [his situation is a disgrace, don't, blame, (he oll'lra's of the • law. The responsibility is that of yourself and your neighbors. Were there any 'effective public, opinion to back them up (he officers could and would do something about it. But they don't care to make themselves obnoxious by putting clamps on a legal lid that few people show any evidence of wanting.. What is to be done about Sit? It .seems lo us (hat'if the fiqiiof traffic is to be permitted to exist any way that the common souse thing to do is at least lo got for the stale some revenue benefit, out of it. There-seems to be. considerable sentiment in 'the legisla- tmq that that is the thing to do. Just how to handle it from a social .standpoint is the question. We are inclined to think that the best solid ion would . involve elimination of the private pioht motive for promoting the sale and consumption of liquor. Make it available at state liquor stores at prices with which bootleggers can't compete. Sell il only by the bottle and Tor con- i-umption oil' the premised. Make it easy to get and cheap but take away the bnght lights, the glamor and .sociability which attract people to commercial drinking places. The results won't be perfect but at least they will BLYTHEyiLLE, (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS OUT, OUR WAY be .no worse than at present and a tidy bit of revenue would flow into the slalo treasury. To Provide Needed Revenue Numerous members of the general assembly have been quoted to the effect that they will agree to a sales lax only ;tflcr leaks in Hie existing 1 slate lax system haves 'been plugged. The stand they take IB above reproach but it won't meet the situation unless they follow it up willi action. The need of Arkansas schools for additional revenue is not imaginary. Elementary education in this state is already seriously crippled and lliu condition promises to grow worse rather than better unless relief is provided. The way to block a sales, tax is to meet the need in .some other way. What is necessary, as almost everyone familiar with the situation acknowledges, is an assessment system thai will put all property on the tax books at a fair and equal proportion of its true value, and a collection system with teeth enough in it lo bear out the old saying that nothing is certain except death and taxes. When that is done the financial difficulties of our schools and of our city and county govcrn- mcnls will be greatly relieved if not altogether cured. It can be done without adding to the burdens of who are already carrying their fair share of the tax load. Needless to say it should be done. The Other Side The nii'.liii'e of prison life is a drab one at best. We hear much of the idea thai ,-i .term in prison .only embitters and makes anti-social Hie imprisoned man. It is too often true. But not always. Ohio has just released two men, brothers, who were sentenced to life imprisonment; in, 1925. One, Daniel Webslcr Boggs, had built up a inail order advertising business in his prison cell, paid oft' Ihe mortgage on his mother's home, financed the education of two sisters, and saved money besides. . The .other,'John Joseph Boggs, has completed courses in law, aeronautical engineering and radio engineering by correspondence. Two men, at least, bid fair lo step out from behind prison walls with every chance of successful and productive lives ahead of them. Thus the real aim of penology is attained. It doesn't happen as often .as it should, but il does happen. if Uio cmiv, ol Industry lincl their way, Hcv- tiorl Hoover still would be In the White HOIIEC. clianling "Prosiicrlly is jusl around tlit comer," :>s millions of citizens slowly starved. —J.

Treatment for Various Types of Joint Inflammation Differs I»V I)lt. iMOIlUIS HSIJIIKIN Editor, Journal of llic American Medical Association, and of llygcia. the Hcallh Magazine Because of the. many types of joint Inflammations and the vaiy- ing severity of 'symptoms in diilcr- ent cases, many forms ol treatment have been developed, both to bring about relief [rom Uio symptoms and, in many -installers, to cilect a cure.

As these condition develop, there arc tendencies to ward crippling because of fixing of (he joints in certain positions. Such crippling may he prevented if competent attention Is given early to Inc. condition by a qualified physician. Such a specialist will arrange to protect the joint by holding the tissues in proiwr position through use of plaslcr ol Paris casts, splints, or braces. 4 * d In general, rcliel may be secured through application of heat, by use of liniments, lotions, and baths, by devices which pull the tissues to that the swelling does not bring about pain, and by direct application ' of various healing measures. It must be realized first, however, that the general care of a person with a chronic inflammation of the joints Is of mmnst importance. To secure such care. It may be ncce.isarv (o put the patient in a hospital nr Institution where lie will be under definite medical control.
