For Free Trade The slate revenue department delegation which is in St. Louis today to negotiate a renewal of the Arkansas- Missouri truck license reciprocity agreement is engaged in a mission of particular Sniporlaacc • to Bly'lUcvilte and Mississippi county. Artificial barriers of any kind to trade and travel are bad. All the world is suffering today as a result of them. Certainly there is no justification for erecting such barriers at state boundaries. The United Slates is all ^one country. To keep it HO in fad as well as in name it is essentiiil that the apparent inclination of some -stales lo find pretexts for inlerTering with interstate commerce be promptly nipped. The evils .which result from attempts lo" make frontiers out of stale lines ' bear especially upon tlrerbuainess men aiitl oilier residents of communities near the borders. .We and" our Missouri neighbors have had some untor- ,lunate experiences of that nature ill •the past. • We want no more of them. The Xvclfare tmd prosperity of communities ataiiE ,bolh sides of the Mis-: somi line" require., unhampered intercourse across lhal line'.' "We'hope that an agreement, liberal in its tertns, will be reached at St. Louis. Incidentally it might be mentioned that before going lo the St. Louis conference olticqrs of the revenue department paid a visit here and interviewed officers of the local chamber of co'mhiei'ce ami various' business men. They found out how some of the residents of this community felt about the mailer, which is something that officials at Little Rock have not always taken the trouble to do in mailers affecting us in the past. Let's Not For gel The American Hod Cross, completing its relief and rehabilitation work in connection with the 1937 flood, reports expenditures in Mississippi county amounting to about $105,000. The flood today is scarcely a memory in this county. Even in the areas actually inundated no evidence of it remains. Everyone is back at home and at work as if nothing had happened. But let it be remembered that it was very different three mouths ago. Thousands of residents of this county, most of them without resources of their own, were forced to leave their homes. The Red Cross provided them with food and shelter until the water subsided and then assisted them in repairing their homes and otherwise reestablishing themselves. It is because of the service rendered by the tted Cross lhat normal conditions exist today in the flood areas. It might be mentioned also that the ?105,000 spent in this county does not represent all of the Red Cross investment for the benefit of Mississippi county people in 1937. Several thousand refugees were housed and fed outside the county for weeks. The Red Cross has been Mississippi county's friend in need on a number of occasions., Its expenditures here in the great 1927 flood disaster amounted to upwards of $200,000. In Ihe 1930 drouth it came to our aid to the amount of more than $150,000. It has extended help in « number of smaller disasters. All told, in the period from 1927 to 1937, it has spent more' than, half a "million dollars for the benefit of this county. There are facts which every resident of this county should keep in mind when next the Red Cross makes its annual membership appeal. \Ve can't pay back the half million but at least we can do our part toward the support of an organization which always stands ready to meet human needs-in emergencies wherever they may occur.

Boviue Tubercle Germs DaiigcfQus To Human Beings (No. I9C| 11Y 1)K. JMOKKIS l-'ISHIIEIN Editor, Journal uf the American Mcdiriil Associiilion, ami • of Ilygcb. Ihe Hc.-illli Magazine Tuberculosis is caused by a stm first described by Ihe famous, baelciiologist, Robert Koch. We know now that there arc at least four different kinds of !tubercle germs. One kind affects human beings primarily; another, cattle; the third affects birds, and the remaining', kind, cold-blooded animals such a$ frogs and turtles. The germs that affect catlle arc most like those lhat attack man, but the latter are more dangerous to a human being than to domestic animals, just as the type that infects catlle is more dangerous to domestic animals than it is to man. The cnltle type, however, may infect human beings, especially children. Indeed, the ' bovine or caltle form of tuberculosis is known to be largely responsible for tuberculosis of the bones, joints, and lymph .glands of children who. in (he past, have been infecied by drinking milk from infected cows. Now that Ibis has been recognized us a menace to health, it is customary to control milk supplies by subjecting catlle lo the tuberculin lest and by eliminating- from herds cows found lo have the disease. \ In Denmark, which has teen most successful ::i sjppressin^ lu- ] berculosis nmon;: cattle, all ani- inls are tested will) tuberculin. ~hosc found to be negative are ept In one place and those found be positive in another. Calves rom cows which react positively re removed immediately aftei hlh and reared on milk of hcal- hy cows. All cow.s with tuberculosis o he udder are killed and Ihe armcr is reimbursed in imoiint equivalent to onc-fourll of the meal value of the animal. The caltie found on examination o co tuberculous also arc killed. In this wny ii is possible to stamp :ut lutiorculrvis entirely as it cx- Islr; amoiii; tattle. In many p;,rts of the United States, also it has been possible, by use of ibc tuberculin test and destruction o[ infected animals, to eliminate (he menace of tuberculosis milk.
