Lables of Our Beliefs Changed in Value The labels which we use lo describe various human activities—such words as "radical," "coiiKCi'vaUvc," "progressive," HIH! so on—;iro useful things, since they serve to .classify inliing- iljles in u luuidy, cartl-iudux niiiiuwr. The interesting thing iiljonl them, however, is the fact that their value changes fiom year to year without our knowing it. President Roosevelt's address to Congi ess is an example. Half a dozen years ago this speech ' —calling, as it did, for a network of old age pensions, unemployment iu- Miiancp schemes; collective use 6f Ocr- l.nn natiual resources, and the .addition of 3,000,0.00 men tii UK! federal payioll—would have sent shivers up and down swine niji)licm.s of honusl American backs. Coming v,hi>n it did, if was rather £-01101,illy iitucplL'd as a "middle of the load" vcntmc. Many people even saw in it a swing toward the right. * t . » . • . The old labels which we iiltached to Mich piojects a 1'ew years iitfo have loit Ihcir mejmi.ntf; and that lias happened simply because we have moved out fiom under them. Consider another example: The re^ lent campaign sjiccch of i'.i'cmicr 1\. f B ttenncll of Canada 1 , which ''called : tor ",in end to-the reckless uxploihij- lion of human resource,', and .the tiafiickmg in the: health and happiness of Canadian citi/.'ens." Piemiei Bennett's program, iu.; ils e.sbcntialb, seems lo be more or less a dupinjitlioi\ of President Roosevelt's. H tails for iiiii'mploymenl insurance, a revamped old age pension phui, in- smanco against sickness and accident, new iiicoiw; tax laws lo..correct unequal disti ibutioii of weallh, and a system ol minimum wage and maximum hour laws for labor. » * » • Now the point, right here, is not wheUiui the voters of Canada give Mr. Bennett a mandate lo put ibis scheme into eflccl, or retire liim and give someone ulte a chance, it is the simple fact lhat a Canadian premier, like an Ameucan president, has advanced a piogiani which would have seem- OUT OUR WAY cd stmlljDgly nuiical if It hlul been suggested as recently as 1928. Whttt has happened) of course, i» thai onr-Viewpoint bus changed under, the impact of lite folowfr denlt by the' depression.; We no loiigcr look at .things as we used to; and before we pin any more labels on new proposals, we would do well to examine UIB labels carefully and Met,- if they mean the same things that they used lo mean. We have simply moved out from under our favorite figures of speech. —Bruce Gallon. lliis Slate and a Fantastic Pension Scheme . A concurrent, resolution introduced In Die house would put Arkansas In tiic position ol iii'ljliijf coiierras (y cmict (lie Townsciid old age pension pliih inio h\\v. •I'lils Is tlie pinn of which Mr. Roosevelt spoke us t> "fantastic scheme" whose advocates would be responsible (or giving credulous and uninformed people hopes nncl drcnnu Dial could never be remixed. The TOIVIBCM! iiliin Is grotesquely fminvsllilc. H Is beyond nil bounds of reason, if the Icgblattirc will stoj> to think, Hint Arkansas should Hsk congress to give more than 10,000,000 people $200 iwr month each out, of the fcdDinl treasury, on the: condition llmt cncli of them spend Hie $200 within 30 ilnys. The aul- •Iny for lluil purpose 11)0110 iroiild came lo $24,000,000,000 n year—eight times the iiniuial expense of operating nl! the regular agencies of the entire government. Can any one conceive of sucn a llitnu's happening in Arkansas, with more than 120,000 individuals, while- and iiCBro, eelling 5200 a month from Washington which Uicy would be uinler compulsion to sixiiid before the month was out. wlille tlic entire population was taxed us It Had never dreamed or being taxed More lo pay for their .spending spree? II .sounds more like something out of Aliee In Wonderland limn a serious proposal.

"Tlie victim," Sydenham wrote, "(joes to bed and sleeps in good licnlth. About 'i o'clock in the morning lie is awakened by a severe pain in (lie great toe; more rarely In the heel, nnkle, or instep. This pain Is Jike that, of a dislocation, and yet tlie pails feel us if cold water were poured over them. "The pain, which was at (ii.si moderate, becomes more Intense. With Its intensity the chills and shivers increase.

The disease seems to nm in families, and to be associated with overindulgence in caling and drinking, ami with lack "of exercise. However, somu people yet the condition who do not. suffer with ] Ihcsi! habits." Gout is trailed . successfully by carefully supervising Ihe nctlvi- ly of the person concerned, by Inking suitable measures for relief measures for relief''of pain, and by eliminating f rol ij n, c diet foods that are rich in nucicons, such as liver, lliymus, kidney, brain, mid pancreas. Buch substances us cavinr, fish roe, and meat extracts are nl:;o believed lo be harmful. The best did for .1 person wltli Ihis condition Includes milk, cream, cheese, fruits, fresh vegetables and.vviilcr. Liquors and wines are generally forbidden. Some dings sceni to L'o particularly helpful in bringing iibout relief from pain. The pain may also be avoided by application ol heat and by fixing Uic affected parts in such way with sandbags, hot walcr bottles, and .'similar devices us lo keep'the bed clothing and other pressure away from Ihe affected parts. 1 •..-•: .
