The "Clinging Vines," Stand Alone The belief that women arc ncco.-isiir- ily weaker Uvan men is huinn effectively blasted by'the athletic activities of the modern miss. It seems not unrea- sjonable to predict that the time will conic when women will meet .men on an cjqiial basis,'nail stand a good chance qf winning. ! When that limn arrives the ideal of equality which women have demanded during the past two decades will become reality. The last barrier will be removed This spring two lusty young women have been signed by professional baseball team's.: The skeptic says it was for publicity. Be that as. it may, it is admittedly true that there are some surprisingly good women ball players. They have shown exceptional ability in: other sports, such as tennis, golf and swimming for years. . This tendency suggests interesting possibilities. Will we hear over our radios: "Susie Jones .socked the apple uvflr the fence—it's a homer!" or "Buxom Betty Brown crashed through lef (.-.tackle for eight yards," or "Kid Katherine floored the JMauler with a left hook to the jaw"? Such thoughts cause us to smile now. But remember—30 years ago we should have laughed if somebody had suggcst- . ed women would beat men in golf and tennis' "anrT'swimming There aren't any clinging vines any more. Serving Gn Juries News that M. J. Van Sweringen, famous Cleveland railroad magnate, has been called to .serve as a juror in his home city and has expressed his willingness to serve emphasizes once more tlie fact that jury service is a duty which the country's leading citizens usually manage to evade. If we were as civic-minded and conscientious as we should be, there would be no news in the mere fact that a rich business man was about to serve as juror; the man would get his name in the papers only if- he tried to get. out of serving. As it is. however, prominent men appear on juries so seldom that it OUT OUR WAY is front-page news when one of them agrees to perform such duty. Thus, in every city in the land, judges are now and again moved to lament (he caliber of the talesmen drawn by (juric.i; and we gel, occasionally, verdicts that are strange and incomprehensible. Sounds Very Much Like Politics to Me Senator Caraway spoke before the coHon trades association of Arkansas ami LtUIc Hock the other day and In the course of his tnlk he predicted some ralher, dire things for the Federal I'orm Board. Among things he declared the present act was not what the fanners wanted and nil but predicted lhat the Farm Board has failed and the present Afiricultural Marketing Act would be repealed In His next Congress. Th; snniD day Chairman riafkob of the National Democratic Committee was Idling loose long walls about the Federal Farm FHiard and what it hud failed to do and what should l» done nbolil It. Now we do not ivani to challenge Hie Integrity on sincerity ot S?nulor Caraway but we believe (hat In miking here In LUllc Rock to the old line cotton men he was a little "politician conscious". lie wanted to say the thins that would please them and lambasting tlic limn bonrd or shouting Its destruction Is sweet music lo the cnrs of the old line cotton traders. We hope that the Agricultural Marketing Act will not be made- a. political football In the nqxt election. We hope thai Senator Caraway will not uso (hut to re-elect himself next year when he runs for the Senate. The Federal Fain; Board of course was a compromise measure. Almost every measure passed In Congress is. It has not lived up to the hojics and some of the promises of many of the politicians'bill It Ins hud a sincere bunch of able men trying to do everything In their power and that of the Federal Government to help agriculture. Whether we want to admit 11 or not the Farm Board 1ms tieli>od the farmer in cushioning the shock of fulling commodity markets. There Is no question but what without the nld of the Farm Hoard wheat would have sold this last fall for forty cjnts a bushel and cotton for six cents per pound. There is a lot of noise nbuut the money that has l>ccn -spent, Is that any more than the railroads got after the war; Is it any more than the merchant marine Is getting now? Certainly not, and no group of men or law ever drawn by mortal man could have slopi«d the decline in cotton and wheat and olher prices during the past two years simply because the folks who buy these things have not had the money with which lo buy. We fear that Senator Caraway vrnsj after the car of the old line cotton men rather than the farmers. —Stanley Andrews in Arkansas Gazette. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark "Jim wanted to buy a. l would mean a smaller anmliniml." diamond, bill I was afraid it WASHINGTON LETTER BY KODNEY DUTCllIill NEA Srvhc Writer WASHINGTON. — The extreme Importance of carrying New York In the next presidential election, Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt's relations with Tammany and tho question whether Roosevelt could tc nominated nnd ejected in the face of Tammany oposition are becoming pclilcal topics of In- evy would have the nlost him tb j presidency except lor a curious combination of factors and ev ens.

Cosmo Hamilton. Britten novelist, says the mortem young man is afflicted with tender skin nnd metal freckles. The tin horn sport type? If the Franco-Italian naval discord Is ever patched up, truce would be stranger than fiction. They call him "Legs" Diamond, but the fellow seems to be on his back most of the lime. Now they're calling; (hOM- fellows who want to fly to the mcou rocketeers. As things stand today it appears that Roc«velt shoold he defy Tnmmany. cculil win the Demo- lc nomination despite his por- ly's archaic twc-lhlrds rule and the fact that politicians in some- other northern slates probably would combine with Tnivnnnr.y in an effort lo stop him. If this is true and remains true, the question wfclhrr Rcoscvclt could carry New Ycrk In the election Is then of most vital moment. Wdson Not Withiiut N. V. Cleveland won New York, whic then meant the presidency fo him, by 1141) vok's. Because o Tammany's opposition it Ecem ilkly that ho could not have wo had a single o:ie ol the followin factors been absent: ith the amount of water that! asses out. There Is at the same me n definite reserve of water onstantly In the body. When large mounts of water are taken, the utput Increases, If lor some rea- on the output increases an-J the itake decreases, dehydration rap- dly occurs. Two investigators analyzed water make and output .with a view to alrincing the ledger. They founi hat the water Intake Includes bout 300 grams taken in the form f drinking water, 580 token as •offee, milk or soup, and 120 In he form of water from solid cods. By means of oxidation of pro- eln, fat nnd carbohydrate, an addi- loual 394 grains is supplied, mak- ng a total of 1891 grams of waler ntakc. The output Includes 750 rams by way of the kidneys, 300 y the bowels, and 100 vaporized hrough the skin and by biicathlng. 'his would leave a water balance n the body of H4 crams. Foodslufts vary In the amount of vater that tney contain. Cticum- >er, tomato, or watetmclon will un high In water content, ns much ndefxl as 90 to 95 per cent. There are, of course, conditions n which \ha major part of the vater is not lost by the kidney but hrough the skin. A normal output 1 fluid from the kidney may vary rom a pint to three quarts a rlay. The moment the water supply is educed too greatly unfavorable rc- .ttlons appear. It is of the great- st Importance to realtec that uu- cnsclous patients do not get uough water, and that absence is cllowed by great distress. In such oses a sufficient supply of water s of more Importance than food \nd medicine. A sick person confined to bej vill not ordinarily take enough vater. It lj Important to nave :lulcl constantly at the bedside in .he ordinary caso of illness, parlicu- arly when there Is fever, and I 1 ) ;ce to it that enough fluid is taken to supply the demand.

The world was never more beautiful and capable of contributing more of the things necessary lo the welfare, happiness and peace of mankind ttinn now.

Labor has parted with ils interest in thc bounties of life and is now starving. Labor can spend no more than it is paid.
