Women at The girl ill the typewriter, the girl behiml the sales counter, and the woman engaged in skilled professional work are so much n part of the economic picture in the United States that it is hard to imagine a great city without its women workers. Yet Herbert S. Mills, professor emeritus of economics «t Vassar College, reminded alumnae of that institution the other day that woman's freedom in choosing a career in the home, business or professional life has been definitely curtailed in three great countries, and warned .that if they value this freedom they must he prepared to defend it. In Germany women once more arc taking the Victorian role of honic-miik- er—and giving up all work outside the home. Tn Italy they are honored only as mothers of men. In Russia, on the contrary, home life is ijjnoral and the wife who spends her days toiling in thp factory or fields must forego her heritage of home-making and rearing a family. No matter how one may feel about the desirability of women confining their activities to the borne or working outside it, young women in this country who have definite leanings toward one or the other—or wish to combine both—should give thanks for the privilege. For others, this particu- _lar. please of the German, Italian, and Russian innovations in government remains one of the most interesting to watch. Thirteen Months One of the oldest of reform movements is that of the calendar reform people. For decades they have agitated the idea that the year should be divided into 13 equal four-week months, with a new month inserted between June and July, and the 365th or extra day used, presumably, to go call on your Aunt Minnie. Now the NRA has given the idea an unexpected impetus. Washington off- cials, collecting data on various industries,'found an amazing variety of report periods, weekly, bi-weekly, every four weeks, monthly, and quarterly. It was highly advisable to get together on something. So the.Central Statistical Board ask- ed adoption of a uniform four-week period, and now more than 700 individual firms are using this system, according to the International Fixed Calendar League. It is the league's belief Hint this foreshadows adoption of the reformed calendar for btisiness, and later for public use. Stranger things have happened. $108,000,000,000 Kvcry individual knows what the three terrible years of depression cost him. But there is no bolter time to study what they may have cost all of us together. Th« National Industrial Conference Board has just made its estimate. It believes that the three years from 1930 to 1933 cost the American people ? 108,000,000,000 in lost wages, profits, and investments. It estimates that employes lost ?;57,000,Ofl(),OUO in wages and salaries. The loss to people in business for themselves 'in income, rents, royalties, .interest, and dividends is set at |-17,•100,000,000, with an additional capital business loss of ?23,200,000,000 lo individual proprietors and corporations. It is difficult to say how accurate these estimates 'may be. Hut a little reflection on their magnitude makes any man incline to say to himself: "Thi.s must not, can not, Imuncn Must Not the Arkansas Bui- Take Action? Wind's lo he ilone when the state comptroller of Arkansas, with his Intimate acquaintance with public, affairs, declares llml the practice of "Jury fixing" Is so widespread that the resulting situation "bordeis oil anarchy?"

Musi nol tlie Bar Association treat this public charge of the grossest possible abuse of th'j Jury system and the machinery of Justice us mi extraordinary and emergency occasion, and take appropriate action? Comptroller Smith said the situation he. de_scribed would not ,bo cleaned up imttl the "pa- \trlotlc citizens" of'Arkansas nssrrt themselves.

The medical profession is capable of developing plans whereby the j magnificent service that ib can render will become increasingly useful to greater and greater numbers Of |>CCp!c. In the great Century of Progress exposition of the 2!st century, medicine again, no doubt, will be outstanding in its contribution. We shall sec the majority of mankind approximating tr.e threescore year and 10 which is the natural biological cycle of man. We shall see a beginning of some control over reproduction of thu unfit and the degenerate. More infectious diseases will be eliminated. The bodies of little children will be bctlcr nourished. Tlie better utilization of more leisure lime will decrease the nerve strains and stresses now associated with both mental nnd'physi- cal breakdown. The frontiers of disease move onward as the control of diseases makes progress. Germs change their nature. New generations of men lose their immunities of the past. New machines, ncsr chemicals, and new methods of living bring new haz.irds. which must be investigated.
