Vii' Time for Legal Action Lei us assume ,)<ilin Doe, erty owner, believes poi'tion.s (j a rage and driveway of liis a physician, arc situated on his land. And let vis assume John Doe does not lake the sensible course of tryin;,' to S settle the matter by legal means. Instead, he steals into the doctor's garage one nifht, takes the key 1'r-iin his automobile, puts his own padlocn on the (jiirago door, and refuses to surrender Uic'koys to loek or ear. Such an action not only is an invasion of the doctor's properly rights. It is nls > a source of possible danger to iho health and life of his patients. However right John Doc may be in his properly dispule, his liigh-handivl, irresponsible behavior would undoubtedly earn him public censure and a severe legal penalty. Vel if John Doe headed Ihe labor unions in a basic industry, the situation would be decidedly different. He could, in effect, set'.lc his dispute by punishing the patient; inslead of the physician, and they. 1 " ' would he little that anyone could do about it. One reason for the different situation is that in disputes such as the coal strike, which endanger the public .safety, everyone seems to have been gotug on the assumption that there are only two branches of our government The legislative branch has been invoked and threatened, and pressured from both sides, to enact or withhold legislation aimed at preventing punishing strikes which imperil the general welfare. The executive br:i>ini has had to arbitrate, make recomnu:].- dations and take over management op..." .orations. The judicial branch has beon 'carefully bypassed. Labor has resisted any restriction of the right to .strike. It is obvious that come "when industrial adversely affect the in btisic industries and utilities wh.'i'>: Hie public welfare is at strike. Kullii' of Arkansas would make strikes such industries unlawful. Kerfirtison .MichifiTiH: favors a sysleni of Icde liibor courts.

Senator Ferguson is talking iticoii- testable good sense when lie says. "U is now plainly apparent that we h-iv: Kill lo set up some legal machinery 10 do the job. The economic power of disputing parties should not be Ihe doci'S- u\K factor." n • !, IflU The Christmas Seal Ihe lime has disputes whicli whole countrv must be settled by the same orderly means as any other disputes affecting the rights of persons or property. Two senators would make arbitra- of disputed contracts lion compulsory The Christmas Seal is an immigratii: that has become a good American. A brain child of Kinar llolboell, a Danish postal clerk, it came to America in 1907. Air. llolboell conceived the Idea every Christinas letter should carry a seal showing the mailer's conlribulio i to the f iff hi against tuberculosis. Social Worker Jacob Riis wrote a magazine article about the seal; and a Tied Cross worker, lUiss Kmily P. Iji.-;- sell, decided to try Holbooll's idea. Sh': sold the first American seal in 1907 in Delaware. In 1908 Ihe American Red Cross sponsored Ihe firsl /nation-wide «ib, turning the proceeds over lo the then young H"d struggling National Tuberculosis Association. In 1919 the Chrkr- mns Seal carried for the first time the red double-barred cross. This numl'i that same cross carries its message .» all who travel Hlythcville's Main Strcti In 1920 the Red Cross turned no seal sale over to the National Tuberculosis Association. 'Hiis month Americans in all slates are buying seals as a part of their contribution in the w.\r against one of the world's greatest killers. In Mississippi County the death toll last year was 28, and the kill was four greater than the 19<M total, an increase of more than It! per cent. Tho gains made by this merciless killr.' should arouse buyers of Christmi.s seals to greater activity this yeav. Mississippi County's quota in the u-t- tioiinl campaign is $10,000. Have you purchased your seals and joined the fight against tuberculosis' Or have you merely glanced at the double-barred cross and ignored it-i message to leave this killer froe u> spread his deadly germs and pave ilia way for a greater death "toll next and the next and the next? M ,,, I English professor— and wondered hobbled painfully down the vaguely U he had passed the ; long hospilal corridor back again. He had quickly discarded a pair crutches on his first day out of bed. Now with the thick wooden cane Hussel had brought him hc was able to walk without assistance. Russel came down the corridor .. recognized Jled taking his walking exercises and hastened lo catch UP with him. • Russ looked unusually cheerful. 'The doctor's going to release you tomorrow," he reported, falling into step beside Red. "Janice and I will be around lirst thing in the morning and pick you up." "Good," Red grunted. "I'm gel- ting damned tired of this place." He sniffed Ihe disinfectant-laden air and made a face. "It's been a drag, I know," Rus! sol admitted. The week the doctor had first set as the length of time ' Red must remain in the hospital had lengthened into two. Red's injured leg hadn't healed quite as last as had been expected. They were all frankly impatient to get started back cast. There was another angle to the delay which worried Russel. The accident was going to cost Red = quarter in school. It would be too late lor him to register by the time they got home. He . brought U up now. Red gave his attention with an effort lo what Russ was saying lunny, how remote and long ago going lo school seemed. In fact - he'd forgotten school altogether' ,_-conccntrati»g as he had been this and tried and I Not tliat !t mattered now. Where | he was going as soon as he could walk, it wouldn't matter whether he'd say "ain't" or "isn't." Russcl didn't know what he had mind. Russel mustn't know— not until it was an accomplished fact. Hussel's knowing would lead to useless arguments. only And there was no need for arguments, now. The Condons were under no further obligation to him. He had saved Russel's life and now Russcl had saved his. The slate \vas wiped clean. So hc said carefully, "Cut the regrets, Russcl. I guess one quarter of school won't make a lot of difference in my life anyway." And he went on walking doggedly up and down the corridor. * * * n^HE doctor was making his last examination. He probed carefully for the sore places on Uie injured leg. "How's it coming, Doc?" Red asked nervously. "All right? Will 1 get so I can walk—without limping." "Exercise Is (he only thing that 'ill get all the kinks out of that leg,' the doctor said. "Walking . and more walking'' "Walk! Say, Doc." Red said solemnly, "I'll walk from here lo Shanghai, it that'll do it " "You'll be all right, then," the doctor said. "Good luck! last week upon a far ' different problem.'

' "No — " Janice, had naturally assumed that she had meant Hiissel "Hussel sent the telegram himself," she said soothingly. "Hi says he's perfectly all rigli't." "But Red—" Elise's voice had died to a whisper in her d throat. Fortunately Janice herself had been loo excited lo analyw \vord< "Red— he's hurt. I don't know how badly." Elise sat before the phone while the room whirled di//ily around her. Fear made her physically ill. From a great distance she ' had heard Janice's voice going on: "I wish you'd come over, Kliso — and be hero with Dad until we hear more. He's pretty upset. I'm going to fly out and sec if Uusscl is really all right." "All right," Elise had said like an echo. "I'll get dressed and call a taxi. I'll be right over." But still she had sal there holding the phone in her hands after Russ was in his room when he got back. He helped Red pack and dress. And Janice was waiting for them in the convertible at the hospital entrance. Russ helped Ked into the car and went around and stowed his things into the trunk compartment of th« car. They were all in high spirits now that the actual moment of slarltng home had arrived. Russtl especially so. K Janice had hung up. If he dies — " "If he dies she had thought.

This is us handy a .set of pigeonholes as any lunvsparjci reader could ask for. Clip from this newspaper any dispatch about the activities of any government in international affairs, and you will Hud that it may be fitted neatly lilo one of Ihese four pockets. Also, it will help explain the motives behind the actions of statesmen the world over. The perfect state xvould be strong In all four fields of inilucncc. The U. S. might be said lo be si long in economics, potentially sirong i" i force, weak in its use nf .symbols— the selling to the world of the American idea nf democracy. Ga'at \ Britain might be classed as .strong in its diplomacy, strong in force, struggling to regain its economic position, weak in Us use of sym- bols—si.reading the doctrines of Us socialist government. Soviet pus- sin is slrong in force, weak in its economy, .strongest of all in its use of symbols—yelling the world o u communism. All iirc jockeying now for leadership in diplomacy. IIEKK'S HOW THE SVST1CS1 \VOKKS Take j, lev, specific example's: Why dec's Russia take the lead in proposing disarmament? While she has the world's largest land army, she is relatively weak in na- vnl power and in long-range heavy bombers, and she has no atomic bomb. To equalize her position as one of the I5i^ Three powers, it is to her advantage thai other nations disarm in the weapons she does not have. Similarly. Russia is \venh in Ihe second category, the :j ( .ld n [ C c0r ncinic position. Terrifically .short on customer grods and wii'h n low 1 standard of living because of the war and the late start .-.he got us | a modern world power.

Klisua tia s more Kold ihun she noi-iK for her own system ol economy, ami she needs all her raw materials for her own use. In short. Russia is nut ye! ready lo take her place as a li'.uiin.; commercial nation in peaceful trade.
