Arkansas Leads Arkansas led the. South in financial ' support of the Democratic party in its recent overwhelmingly succebsful national campaign, and while figuies for the various counties of the state are not 'available, it appears probable that Mississippi county ( led Arkansas. Clifton H. Scott, the party's finance director for Arkansas, reports remittances to national headquarters of §142,500.', Presumably some of the larger states in the South gave riioie money, biit Mr. Scott states that in proportion to, population Arkansas led them fall. Mississippi county, ,we are infonijjftd, gave 10 per cent or more of the money raised in the state. Just what part this ?142,500 and the other thousands contributed by Democrats tluoughout the country'had to do with the sweeping victory won on November 3 is problematical. The party j\vus ..returned 'to power by such overwhelming majorities that it is altogether probable that Piesident'Roose- velt could have been re-elected'with- out any,' 1 expenditure ' in • his behalf. Nevertheless we believe that it WHS money well invested. At least this state and this county have indicated in a ' practical way 'their appreciation of the benefits which have been __ theirs under the Roosevelt adminis- ' trailer.. Mr. Scott 1 and members of his organization, including,.the -chairmen for. ,1ms county, C. H. Wijfeon and A F. kirham, are to be congratulated on the iob they did, L Training For Failure It beems that parents aie wioiig in counseling their youngsters to study hard and aim for the presidency. Anyway, Dr. Mandel Sherman, mental hygiene specialist,at the University of Chicago, advises that young people be trained to becbme failures, in the ordinary sense of the word. "Our educational system is buffering from an overdose of success stoi- fes," he contends "One. peibon in 10 is neurotic, one in 22 insane today because we tram only for success. And only a few can be .successful from a material standpoint" Youth perhaps should be taught that a successful lite need not include fame and riches. But history, studded with instances of handicapped young- steis \\ho fchight their way to i suc- cess/indicates that it would he cliffi- ' cult to set the younger generation' to •' bow its head to tire inevitability of Prophet F\irley One thing can be said for the straw polls. They brought quite a bit of revenue to the United States postal service. ,'And it is for that very reason that Postmaster General Jim • Farley ' ought . to be inore careful. , ; Before it began, he predicted that ) this ,wpuld bu a vicious Campaign. And .so it proved. And some 'time ago he stated that Roosevelt would carry .every state but Maine 'and Vermont. ' In'the, previous campaign, he; had • been wrong only in claiming Pennsylvania; ; 1 A little more of this sort of tiling, and there- bright be a movement' to substitute Smiling Jim for straw vote polls. That might be nice for Mr. Farley, but his postal service would bu out of> pocket. The Europed'ik View ' American politics is a queer thing, in some >"wayb, and it is hardly surprising' that sotrrie Europeans are -utterly unable to understand it. For'"example: we find the controlled press of Germany suggesting that the , overwhelming' Roosevelt landslide is "an er'uptioruof the fuehrer (leader) idea within the democratic syste'm"; and a similarly controlled Italian . paper remarks that the election approves ' a tendency "to concentrate political, economic, and directive powers in 'a- form which a European democracy would call dictatorial." To ..fill of which we can only say that landslides are nothing new in America. Every president .since Wilson was put in olTice by n landslide. 'lu each presidential election since 191G the losing party has been crushed so hopelessly that timid souls have suggested that it. would soon go out of existence But each time it has bounce^ back .1 little later, full of health <uul vitality. ....•'• • SIDE GLANCES By feeoige; Clarl nr:GT\ iimii) TOD.VY H mi cAitOMM-: llv« on a fnriH ulth Ihelr luvnlile, IlltlliU-nt Kruilllftlllifr, .MAJOlt SAM .lli:i:u. mill (liu old .\i.

He said to Kate apologetically;'"! reckon you'll me to (hat old soldiers' home you were talkin' about, now I'rii such a nuisance?" Kate shook her head. "I was a fool to suggest- that. Gran'dad.

They.i-ould hear her politely asking him. to "rest" his hat on the tabl« and sit down. "Spruce up!". Kate said to Caroline. "He'll expect you to look pretty. I'll help you dress. Yes, Althy! She'll * right down!" A cniick change of clothing, fragrant powder, a comb run through hair already smooth and shining, and Caroline was ready.. Kate, sitting beside her sleeping grandfather and mechanically fanning him, heard the murmur of voices below. -Two hours of it. Then the man took his departure and Caroline came running upstairs and into the room, starry- "Guess what!", she said in an ecstatic whisper. "He's ' from a Louisville radio station! I'm to liave an audition!" Kate arose and they did a dance together in jubilation. They had indulged In this inanity since earliest childhood, whenever joy overlook them. They danced out of the room now.

Is de sky fell?" * * * PAROLINE'S work.was to start ^ at once, so a telegram informed icr, and the first broadcast would ,akc place the following Monday. Shelby look its new celebrity to is heart and there followed for Caroline four or five days of plcas- ml attentions rendered by her surprised townspeople. Kale said, with a slightly malicious delight, "Nobody expected a Meed to be heard from, Caroline! They've looked on us as extinct." Major Meed had to be told, since Caroline must leave home, but all details were kept from him. It would be best for him not to know the particulars, they felt, inasmuch as he might suffer sympathetically from "mike fright" and render himself ill again.

He's too fond of it." Caroline was surprised to find herself thinking of Jeff Howard as a confidential friend. MID AFTLRNOON and a slr-inge cai hefoic the house Ciro- llne and Kate, looking.down cautiously r.-om an upper window saw a young, man get out and consult the name on the mail box. Kale exclaimed. It s—it s tha' Ncilson man! 'Who?" asked Caroline blankly Ins a sponsoi whos looking for a program. They w.i.rit 'someone to 'sing'for half an iiriiir every week day from 7 lo 7:30. They had in mind simple ballads. That sort of hiiig. Mr. Hoilson's been scouting 'or someone. When.he heard me, he thought I'd do. I'm to have an audition in the morning at the studio. At 10:30. Oh. Kate can this be I? But maybe I won't suit the others. Don't let me be too hopeful. Kate!" "•.Caroline returned from the city the next day on the 5 o'clock bus and walked through froni-the State Pike. Kate. watching;<'rari to the gate to meet her. She'had never seen anyone look, quite so dusty or quite so triumphant. Caroline asked at once, -"How's Gran'dad?' ."Belter. I didn't tell him why you went to Louisville. Well?" ... "They've accepted me, Kate Here's my contract." They.walkec lo the porch and sat on the steps and wept in each other's. arms.;'? "Seventy dollars ai\vej;k!"-C . line announced incredulously.'"' "Oh, Caroline! Fordoing some thine you love to do!" in • Through Althy he sent "congi ulalions to Miss Caroline." That vas all. He never encountered Cate during his brief visits and e had no way qf knowing whether liffi'ilental or studied voidance on' r her part. He only that his heart pnundc'd suf- Ofalingly when he approached the igly little house that sheltered ier; that when he had driven iway a great loneliness settled iround his life like a fog, obscur- iig whatever it was that made life vorlh living. : Kale had decided not to tune in or Caroline's first broadcast. Yet, as Monday afternoon wore away, ;he felt more and more impelled o listen. At 8:50 she was finger- ng the dials excitedly, only to lear a garbled blur of sound Unit eft her despairing. The set which hey used—an ancient, undepcnd- ible affair at best—operated from batteries, and these, evidently, wore sadly in need of being charged. Kate suddenly felt that she must hear Caroline's first broadcast or she could not stand it. Caroline would be in the studio now, composing herself, looking over her notes. In 10 minutes she would be on the air. The .thought was too. much for Kate. She ran from the* house, jumped into-the sedan that-stood in the driveway and drove mad toward Meed Meadows as u3 erringly.ns a:bird-winging its wa; home.

See to it that liis cyos are not wliwd with a towel used by all the children in schorl or by all the fatally at home. There should be no hooks, doorstops, or other projections placed at the level, of the child's eye in the wall. If these arc placed hear the floor or above the 'level of the child's' eye. he' is net likely to' have his eye punctured by a hook or a nail. Because of the nature of the construction of the eyes, there ore, several disturbances of vision which are not actual defects, but merely tricks of eye function. It yon look lip ai the sky. orj look suddenly at a while celling, after tho ' eyes have been closed, you will .probably notice a number of inlmilc specks that seem lo move before the eye.
