Living al Home This scribe spent a pleasant and interesting wock;-eiHl amoiiK the clay hills of Obion county, in northwest Tennessee. The laud looked poor, but the people didn't. Las).-year's drouth burned up the crops, but the Ued hail relatively little to do. This year's crop outlook does not compare with that of Mississippi county, but the people arc not worrying. Bank deposits at Union City-have, actually shown an increase in recent months. Obion county grows a little cotton, quite a bit of wheat, an:! a lot of torn and hay and pnslure crops. Cotton and wheat are sold for cash, but most everything else ijoss into beef and dairy cattle, hogs, sheep and poultry. That may be a foolish way to do, but it has made a very pale compleetioned variety of hill land iprovidc a basis for a lot of substantial and comfortable appearing farm, homes and for a number of prosperous looking towns. Obion county lives at home and seems tu^.bo, getting along very well at it. •It/eyon''lfa3'fi'-:li6inc ; market for a substantial 'part 6£ its livestock.

MONDAY, .JUNE. 20, 1931 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Senator 'Caraway's Farm : We have heard or read Senator Caraway's story about the farm he used to own when Woodrow Wilson was prcsi- dent a number of times. It is not ;\ bail story, and continue-, to .bring an appreciative response from persons who per- .haps also once owned farm;!, or who think they would own farms now if it hadn't been for Calvin Coolklgc and Herbert Hoover. •We have never been inclined to minimize the adverse effects upon agriculture of ceiinin uf tlie policies of the RqiuUittii) party. It is harder to • own a farm, or al. least to earn a profit with one, because the Kepubiican tariff taxes agriculture to subsiclixe certain forms of industry. Hut, if Senator Caraway will pardon .our poking our nose into what might Flic Arkansas Picture The avrrnsjc Inveslor w-nnts lo know something abcut the management of the concern In which h; Invests his inuncy. What kind of a picture has Aikansns lo ofTcrV * o * Individually It lj a iilcnsmU one. It's people are courageous. They have demonstrated thai they can take a licking nnd come back. But the outsider, who knows Anything al all, knows that the people of Arkansas ore nt the mercy of ruthless politicians, \v'ho have taxed every conceivable source, who have squandered nnd wasted the public's money, who play upon the Ignorant, and dare the people to wise n hand In protest. IB it any wonder that Arkansas securities sue not Ihe inoU desirable when the stale maintains some twelve stale supported cnllo^ps, hall of them created for |x>liikal purposes, ami frcrving 11 very small section of the state? Is il any wuiuier that Arkansas' credit is not as i<ood as It should be when taxes have increased -100 per cent in ten years and nothing but a deficit to show for '.i? Is It any wonder \vhcn everything from clgui"- etles to sniiir has been t'lxe.-i lor school pur- pusrs yet hundreds of schools arc iacinfj a shutdown? 1:; it any wcucler when lh'.

Women have far more dislinij- incus ol the Ihyroitl than :lo iiifn. 1'liey complain much more ul tru- Icrncss in the region of the yah 1 >]addcr and appendix. So far as the age at wliich disease occurs Is concerned, lh= ay.-s n bolh groups seem lo be Ihe samj. Sex dilleiences In Hie occurrenc:- of various diseases are factors which interest physicians greatly, particularly In ihe matter of making a diagnosis; There v.-as a time when certain diseases were limited alincbt exclusively to men, even tiiose Ihci lid not affect tissues or organs peculiarly masculine. Since women lave come to a large cxtcnl out of he home and into industry an.t in- o similar politically active piKiliDrjs. they begin to show disturbance! which v;er« formerly linUied almost wholly to men. In the past the life expectancy o'. women was In general greater than that of man at any givsn age, nnJ among people living to 100 years of age there would usually be more women than men. Equality of effort and associated therewith equality of exposure makes il likely that In the future this distinction will not maintain. THIS CURJ0US WORL CECENTJ.Y SK<3TN«R.
