In per capita wealth she is one of the poorest. The ai>i)!ircnt conclusion is Hint Arkansas people huve rot made good use of their opportunities. That accusation, however, may bo dismissed as irrelevant. The important thing is that the opportunities exist nnd that they are ours to enjoy if we will. These remarks are made apropos of nothing in particular, but with the thought in mind' that such attempts to increase our state's prosperity as the 90-day-divorce measure anil the oft repeated attempt* to legalize race track gambling are shots wide of the murk. . It is no doubt true that we can catch a few dollars by inviting residents of other states to come here to do . things' that the laws of I heir/ own states do not permit. But aside-from the loss to our own self respect inevitably involved in such a program there is the danger that we will make 1 Arkansas a less desirable place for the kind of dollars that are needed to turn the potential wealth of our soil, onr water power, our forests and our minerals into a better living for our people. The writer shares with President Hoover (the latter a recent, and, we 'fear, half-hearted convert) the Jcf- fersohian view that, prosperity is not creat'&Mjy la\v.s. Wealth is the product of the application of labor and capital to the land and other natural resources. Legislation may enrich one class of citizens, but only by taking away from another—witness the tariff. . . But while legislation cannot create prosperity it can interfere with its creation, and that is part of (he explanation why the natural resources of Arkansas have not meant greater prosperity for Arkansas |>cople. We have permitted our state to fall into the smothering embrace of a . great parasitic political growth that sucks the economic strength of the state and serves no interests hut ils own. We have reached a point where legitimate '•jusiness lives in trembling fear of the next, new attack by a • vampire bureaucracy which is con.tin- ually seeking new sustenance for itself. •The time does not seem far off when a dollar bill will he afraid to show itself in public lest some new lax collector reach for it. For the situation which exists we have principally ourselves to thank. We have turned the state over to professional office holders and then made it easy for them to take care of themselves by setting up a demand for the state to perform a dozen different functions that ought to he left to the local units of government. The result could have been predicted—slate taxes and lax collectors, inspectors, bureaus, boards, commissions and hangers on without end, with u combine;! personnel that has a political grip Hint will be hard to dislodge. We suggest, therefore, that while the voters arc getting rid of tiio 90- day-divorce law, as no doubt they will when the opportunity to vote upon it conies, they also proceed ID gel rid of some of the barnacles that are holding buck Arkansas. When a Peace Officer Uses His Pistol One of the two youths killed on a public highway in Oklahomi by a deputy sheriff happened to be n nephew of .President Ortiz nublo of Mexico. That kinship makes the deplorable uflalr an Inlcrnatouat Incident. Bill It would be no less deplorable if the victims of n peace officer's pistol had been sous of John Smilli ami .11 in Jones. Conflicting accounts ol what occurred are given by the two peace oflicers involved and Hie survivor of the trio ol Mexican students who were motoring home lor tlicir summer mention from the American schools they hnd been attending. But no matter how this particular case may stand In (lie eyes of the law after the facts have been established, vhe words Hint were used by Governor Murray should have universal Attention. The Oklahoma executive, who declared thai "American officers loo often construe, fleeing, as Justifying the firing of their guns," said in speaking of this unfortunaio matter: "No officer has the right to imke an arrest without n warrant, except for disturbance of the peace committed in his presence. Shooting under other circumstances is done at the peril of the officer." The law should unsparingly demand un accounting in every doubtful vase, to the end that every olficcr muy always realize thai he puts himself in peril of (he law if he abuses or misuses • his privilege of bearing weapons to protect the public i.afcty. —Arkansas Gaxell:- WEDNKSPAV, jdNft iu, 1931 Well, anyway, (lie movie business is iiinciu- mcntally "sound".

Kw,.> Victim Warm The entire procedure takes about five seconds, which will permit ot approximately 12 artificial respirations a minute. The movement may be kept up for hours. At the same time, It Is wel.l to keep the drowning person warm, If a Wani'.et U available, and to encourage circulation by rubbing ihe legs. A physician should be secured as scon as possible. Just its soon as the signs of consciousness return, warmth and stimulation are desirable. There is no recesslly for rolling the drowning jiersan over a barrel, hanging him up by.the fcef, or any other rough treatments that us?d to be vogue before 'modern artificial respiration became established. The two most common criticisms are that the artificial respiration is carried on for too brief a time (It Is well to continue even two hours, If there is th? slightest possibility ot resuscitation) and tlie application of the movements loo rapidly.
