10 OHIO COUNTIES ARE DESTITUTE Mining Sections and Farm Country in South DismaF. By KENETH..HOPPING .COLUMBUS, Ohio. Feb. 10. ~ Ohio's southern counties, embracing- .us hilly farmland and its detsl.tute mining sections are as dismal today as the patch of black drawn across the state relief committee's map to indicate the drought area. A line drawn diagonally from Jefferson county, on the' central east boundary to Clermont on the lower west extremetics of the muddy Ohio, sets off a sector wherein 25 counties are urgently in need of all the help the state can give, and more. Need Only Ilaln. What they need as much as anything right now, neither 'the state nor any other agency of man can supply. It is rain and plenty of it. · The 'lack of ^moisture, over the prolonged drought period has left most of the area without an adequate water supply. Farmers who saw their crops dwindle and their pastures wilt under the heat of last summer's sun are now fighting for water for themselves and their families as well as their livestock. Even' the small city»dwellers within the drought area have seen the wells and streams that supplied them unfailingly for decfades sucked dry by the famine. · Luclt All Bad. To the thousands in the mining regions who have had nothing but bad luck for 10 years the water famine is just another eruption of an old sore but a serious one. Those who reside on the farms, and ,'those in the 'villages and to'wns are equally hard hit. The number of families being fed by the Red Cross, by Parent-Teacher organizations and .other relief bodies extends high into the thousands.

WASHINGTON, Feb 10 OVt-- Valentines tipped with venom are flooding the market this year.

The modern teacher gets hers but she is no longer a sour-visaged "old maid" with ringlets, but a flapper- is}! person who walks home from an auto ride. The earnest suffraget is neatly nailed with thia: . "You boast of women's suffrage. And what you'll do next fall. If your bridge meets on election day You'll ne'er show up at all." The druggist gets a sarcastic bawling out" for his side-lines, and wonder is expressed. if he carries any drugs at all. He 'is pictured surrounded by toy trains and sandwiches. Women are among the chief buyers of the returned "comics," dealers say. Whether it is'the lure of the bargain prices or the desire to get even with somebody, dealers find it hard to say. 0 Relieve the pain afi'd.tightness by rubbing Jhc chest with BAUME BENGUE (prcriounccd Ben-Gay).

By HOWARD W.BLAKESLEB (Associated Press Science- Editor) ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 10. UP) --Tlie dangerous age for pedestrians crossing the streets is not childhood but begins at 45. This is the testimony of nine months automobile traffic killings in Detroit as analyzed and made public today by Adelbert Ford, professor of psychology at the University of Michigan. The golden age for escaping autos is from 15 to 24, when all the faculties seem keenest. Counting that period as 1,, Professor Ford finds the second best age is 2S-44. when 4.6 as many persons are killed. Third rank the babies up to 5, with 10.7 times as many killings; fourth, the school children of 5 to 14 with 17.2. Then came the 45 to 64 year olds with 22.5 deaths. Lastly there is a terrific jump to the most fearful of all pedestrian death rates, those of 65 up, who rate 87.2. The reasons for the elders, who are so free with their advice to youngsters,;failing to profit by it, acayrinclucle^say'the Ford, analysis, decrease, in muscular ability, increase in body weight and decrease in speed of movement, prejervation of traffic habits from the days when automobiles were not a hazard, impairment of sensory acuity, a variety of seniie effects on mentality; mental abstraction (absent mindedness).
