Remember 1932 Some 2,000 eastern Arkansas ei-s, including perhaps 75 from Mississippi county, heard an jnypressjye plea by Cully A. Co)))) at Marifinmi yesterday l-hat they consider! crire- fully tlie probable results before cm,- bai'king on a program of 'expanded cotton production. Mr. Cobb, now director of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration's southern division, has had a leading part in the cotton phase of the fed: eral agricultural prograin ever since 1933. He was in a position to take hjs hearer's back to the situation in'\yhic|i cotton growers found themselves in 1032 as a result of unrestricted production and through the steps in the four succeeding years through which cotton prices have been more than doubled and the cotton producer ))fis"' A been lifted from bankruptcy to a fair degree of prosperity. ; Nothing is more certain, lie said, than that if the cotton " producers of this country, by producing in 1937' a larger ' crotf than the hiarkels can absorb,, increase the existing surplus of American cotton, the price of cot-' ton will strn'.t back to-jya'rd the 19.32 level. Let no cotton grower-, he urged, be guilty of practices which, if adopted by all cotton growers; would mean ^disaster to him and to all. Those who heard Mr. Cobb wpre visr ibly impressed. His talk at Mfirjimna was one of a series throughout the cotton be]t. They are certain to have a beneficial effect, although' ', whether they will halt the apparent trend toward increased pvn'lijc.tjon remains to be seen. It is not the business of this newspaper to attempt to advise any farmer as to what his cotton acreage should he. Every fanner has his own individual problems and must work out his progiam as best he can to meet them. But we join with Cully Cobb in urging the farmers of the territory served by this newspaper to consider what the certain result of: a general aci'eage increase would be, to ask themselves if they can justify taking for themselves a program which, if adopted by all, would mean disaster for all, and to count the risk of hay T ing to buy high priced feed ,with cotton made cheap because the land which should have been in feed crops was put in cotton instead. The cotton growers of this section, in .coimtjon \vith those of most of the cotton belt, as Mr. Cobb pointed out, are now enjoying prosperity. That prosperity is the ftirccl, and .unmistakable resu)t of a program tljrpugh which produptjon of American cotton has been brought into balance with de- fiiand. Certainly ll>e pajpfuj lesson of n few years ago shquld not be so quickly forgotten. Cost Of Neglect- Having served for years on the bench In Detroit traffic court, Judge John J. Manor is well ijualillcd {,9 write a book on the subject. And in his book are som,e interesting anomalies that wjl.l interest eycry student of 4)i)'3 vital traffic proble'm. Among other things, Judge IVIaher points out that police Jiavc handled: I'lie routing of ti'afl'i.c, arrangcn>ent of signal lights, construction of safety /.Ones, and s.p on—matters that ar.e decidedly engineering problems. That we educate and train pilots tp handle. planes and sailors to handle ships, but that we turn a M-yeaivold bdy or girl loose on the streets of a big city to learn to drjye a car. That most of our a.utqa are new and streamlined, but that 75 per.cent of our existing traffic laws are old and obsolete. Is jt 'any .wonder," after the way it has been neglccled, that the traffic problem has become a menace?

Tlie use of overheated rooms, the injurious crtccts of excessively dry and warm air and tlie use of a bedroom without adequate ventilatlo'n, also are listed as factors which tend to break down iung resistance. Especially important in preventing pneumonia is prompt attention lo common colds, influenza sore throat, and "bronchitis, when Ihese occur.
