The long-smoldeiinjj desire for inde- pcmlence seems to liiiv. 1 Inirr.t into open flame; :uid if il leads lo lilooil- .slicd—as is (]iiitc possible—the British will find lliemsulves facing Iheir biggest problem since the World Wnv. What the upshot of the thing will bo it is not possible for any mmi to say. It seems fairly safe, however, to predict that the British will eventually have their way. India has 300,000,000 inhabitants, but they ar? not a warlike people. If they wore, the British could' never have subjugated them in the first place. Undoubtedly, Britain will eventually grant India full dominion .status. The present independence agitation, however, may simply delay that day, It is to ho doubted if the Indians will gain much by it. Babies In Prison It comes as something of a shock to .learn thai there are three .small babies confined in the state penitentiary at Auburn, N. Y. They are lodged in the, woineiv's,s:c- tion-of—the—prison. Their TJHIUH.T.S jive serving sentences for crimes of one kind or another, and .since no provision is made for babies whose mother,-; have to : go lo prison, these babies have gone to prison along with them. Auburn prison, unfortunately, isn't unique-in this respect. There are other prisons in this country whore the same sort of thing is happening; pri-'ons where women prisoners have their babies with them, behind,the bars. It would be hard to find a more damning indictment of our civilization than that fact. Of all the places in which a small child is out of plac;, a state prison conies first. One would think that no society would be so stupid and cruel as to permit such a thing for one instant. Imagine the handicap under which such BLYTHEVILLti. (ARK.)

Kngland, says Sir Arthur, bluntly, is simply Ion poor lo go on building warships at Ihe old rale. From an economic .standpoint, he asserts, England will find it to her advantage to consent to a marked naval reduction. There is a great deal in what Sir Arthur says, and il doesn't apply to England alone. Modern navies are almighty expensive affairs lo build and operate. They are getting more expensive every year. If for no other reason than that a competitive naval race would be too expensive to be borne, every nation ought lo go to the conference eager lo find some way of agreeing on naval ratios.

The latest comi'K from Julius H. Harucs, vhaiv)nan of the bosivtl of th,e United - Slnl ;s Chamljcr of Commerce. Writing for the current Review of Ueviewo, Mr. Barnes says thai the recent stock market collapse has actually increased the business man's confidence. "It has become reasonably apparent that business IUIA emerged from the confusion riding on an even keel," he says. "11 has become apparent, too, that those who direct its have not only bren wisely cautions in steering clear of Ihe shoal waters that invite economic disaster but are better prepared than ever to pool their efforts in charting a safe course for the I'uhir,'."

A tip e . a from Andrew Carne£i*> ASKED to explain his phenomenal success, Andrew Carnegie blandly attributed it to his ability to get men to work for him who knew more than he did. And that's a formula for success. Nobody who is really successful does all the work himself. He employs other people's minds and efforts. Do you do the same in the intricate business of running your home and taking care of your family? You can, quite easily. 'You can employ specialists in diet; you can serve the master dishes of famous chefs; you can have the advice of style authorities in selecting your clothes, of whole electrical laboratories in buying household appliances, by reading the advertisements. All the newest knowledge — knowledge millions of dollars and years of effort have won — is contained in the advertisement. . • -----. . •• If you will use the advertisements m this newspaper as Andrew Carnegie used men who knew more than he did, every dollar you spend will be spent wisely, economically, and will return full measure of satisfaction. That's tiie way to be a success in the greatest business in the world— making a home. It pays to read the advertisements. M
