A Problem Still Exists While the actual cmuiyuiicy caused by last summer's drouth lias passed, and a great majority of those \vho required help durin}? thu winter are now able to provide for themselves, withdrawal from Mississippi county of the national Red Cross has left a situation which (jeiiiaiii'ts the attention of the community. : . • , ; 'At. alii times and under all conditions Blythcville and Mississippi county, like other.parts of the country, have a ccr- taiivmmiber.of persons who for various reasons are more or less dependent upon, charily. Normally: assistance is nec- dssary only for those who because of infiroiilyaVe temporarily or permanently unable to work. This', year, partially as an aftermath of the drouth and partially because of the lack of normal v industrial activity, there arc also a considerable number of able bodied persons who, because of inability to lin<l employment, are, unable to provide for themselves and their families. j It has been the obligation of the country and of the Red Cross chapter in the past to'care for victims of old age, illness, or misfortune of various kinds. It has never been the obligation of either the county or the Red Cross .chapter, nor is it within their ability now, to care for the able bodied unemployed. In the hope of relieving the situation, ho\yever, Mrs. J. W. Badcr, president of the Red Cross chapter, is having 8 survey made in the hone of ' . -^i» \;S< l ff* l ? l *' L -*-- f •• i finding pare time employment for men and women now without means of support. Co-opcrntion of the public in providing odd jobs about homes and business places will go a long way toward eliminating iwssiblc sufl'cring and reducing the number of calls upon charitable organizations and individuals. Death In ihe Jungles Once more there has been trouble in Nicaragua, and some more American marines have been killed. The list of young Americans who have given up their lives in those Central American jungles during the last two decades is getting rather long; and nothing is more curious than the way in which our attitude toward it has changed. *A generation ago we accepted, almost as a matter of course , the regular Kipling viewpoint on such matters. We liked to muse about "manifest destiny," we liked to think of our marines as gallant young men who were dying in lonely wildernesses in order that the "lesser breed.* without the law" could share in the blessings of American civilization. We were fond of talking of (he "white man's burden." It was all very romantic. It relieved us, besides, of) the necessity of thinking very deeply about the rights and wrongs of our conduct. To be sclf- rightcous is to ba unworried. The marines who stopped bullets in Nicaragua, or Haiti, or anywhere else about the Caribbean Sea, were heroes who died for a lofty cause. But it doesn't seem so simple these ' days, We have uncomfortable <iualms whenever we learn that some more marines have been killed. We want to know why; we want to know who sent them there in the lirsl place, and whether the job they were doing was worth the. price of their lives. This doesn't moan that we are less ready to give to (hi; slain marines their just dues. They were gallant lads, and they faced death, as they always have, without a whimper. It docs mean, however, that we, their countrymen, are less ready to accept vague assurances that it was quite fitting and proper for them to be killed. All in all, the business of getting at the rights and wrongs of the things seems to be much more complex than it used to be. Our confidence in our own eternal rightness has been shaken. The old injunction, "civili/e .'em with a Krag," fails to satisfy us. On the whole, this is a good sign. Probably the chief defect of the long era that blazed to a close in the World War was that if. was too uncritical. It was' too prone to accept slogans and phrases without examining them. To be sure, it had the courage of its convictions. It would die for ils beliefs, very readily. But to die for a cause may be less noble than to live and find out if the cause be a good one. So we don't accept the deaths of our marines in Nicaragua as complacently as we used to. Tho marines themselves ought to bo thankful; for if we keep on doubting and asking questions, the time will come when it is no longer necessary for marines to, die in lonely Central American jungles. —Bruce Cation.

Well, my friend came back but it doesn't help me, for to my surprise she went away and got married to a man with three children and when I went to sec her about taking my two to Church with her she did not seem enthused. Said siie had about all she could do to care for the three she had. Of all things! Can you imagine her marrying a man with thres children? I first thought, she was just telling me that to get out of taking mine, but when sr.e called them in I looked them over and I believed. 1 may be wrong but I wonder if she did that to spite me for she was bound to know that If she came back I ivoiild expect her to take them every Sunday as she haa done before. It hurls me to think she would treat me in such a manner and my children thought so much of her. She told me that if I wcitkl take them myself I would feel better. So right there is ivnera I told her that I did not need any one to tell me what to do. Of 'course ing or connection can't understand' one in my position. The 'Church -;' : all right but one can't get very lt' : In a social way if you go to Churc- ; ; all the time and have no social coij; 1 * nections. ;.._~_ [j: Now just a while back some-ne.:j people moved into our 'neigh! ;. hood. I saw them unload thei> household goods and such love';.; furniture. I really was not water.':; ing, but they unloaded four of tr'j! swellest card tables. So as. soon ij I could I paid them a short cca and found out that they were tlj right sort of people. Now Just'sup posed I had dashed in and'aske this woman what Church she b^ longed to. Imagine the impress!^; I would have made. As It turntv out I will get to propose her T- 3J \ to all my clubs, andJntrcduceN to our croud. I know from whali saw in their house -and her clothcijl that she will be quite an additio,J to our crowd. :roit at least, n generous lot. Eigl (y-sevcn per cent of them in that city said they sometimes gave treatment, at reduced fees to patients unable to nay the full charge nnd CO per rait said they sometimes gave tree treatment. The committee reported that the dentists were spending a third of their time in work for which there was no direct remuneration or in simply waiting for patients. Dentists' Incomes Higher They 'averaged larger net incomes than the doctors—$6075 annually os against the physicians' S559U. The highest dental income, however, was only $20,000. The average working week was found to be 44 hours a week, and the average charges, running from a dollar to $14 an hour, was $7.75 ;\[i hour, of which $4.50 was the dentist's net profit. The average capi- hts patients, reduces his regn- tal '"vestment required to set ur r fees for 19 i>cr cent of then, as $3,227 invested in equipment, ays out 45 cents for professional xpences from every dollar he re- eives and has a net annual in- ome of S559C.

Worry and nervousness may seriously interfere with the ability of the mother to nurse her child. It has been repeatedly urged that mother who is anxious to nurse the baby, who is not disturbed about conditions in the home, who lias a sufficient amount of recreation ar.d rest, is better able to produce the lacteal fluid. that the infant requires and better able to cive it the iwrsonal attention that means so much in its proper physical and mental development. There is. therefore, during Ihe period of chltdbirlh. both a physical and mental hygiene Ihal must be observed for Ihe best resUts.
