Doubtless the big taxpayers do not need this accommodation, but many "little fel- ows" do, and now that the federal income tax has been broadened to include millions not previously liable there are many more "little fellows." Most "little fellows'' can pay a few dol- ars a month, but find it "pinching" to spare the money for a sizeable larger sum, particularly when it is not directly related to their vocations. The life insurance companies have solved this problem by providing that policyholders may, if they prefer, pay premiums in installments at a slightly higher charge than for yearly premiums.

People get so" se in them that not even doctors cfn £ them loose. Accordingly, what Doctor Brady said in reply to this mother will probably be met with skepticism by most readers- but even so it is worth reprinting, if f or no i hing else then to provide the girls with an authoritative argument. Here is the Doctor's 'opinion: it t f o S hlrT re my daughter - Ma'am, I'd leave Let me assure you now, as in vears tr. come that it has nothing to do with health whether a child wears or does noT wear any .particular clothing. This applies te stockings, overshoes, underwear, hats, coats or •other outer wraps, ear muffs, chest the throat - belly One of the things Mr. Miller's followers wonder about is why his column has gone editorial and political in the last year.. It had been understood that editorial opinions in the Register were to be found only on the editorial page. Some of the same readers and others have also been wondering whether the Register is ; at present pursuing what has been under- ] stood to be its traditional policy of no favoritism for political candidates. It has seemed evident for some time that the Register was deliberately pushing the candidacy of Mr. Thornburg " Well everything went o k f er a long while and Loo le tha Eo use and I set in tha kitch ndPtted lha and drank sum It is only occasionally that we are privileged to witness a strictly "adult" -movie, due not so much to producer or manager as to the inherent nature of the modern motion picture and its almost universal appeal to both young and old. King's Row, the somewhat sordid (and much too long) story of life in a small town in the early 1900,'s, really packs a dramatic Wallop, and so much happens in so little time that it is almost episodic. Because of faultless direction by Sam Wood and a well balanced, thoroughly convincing cast of stars (there isn't a mediocre performer in the entire two hours of dramatic suspense), what might easily have been a sensational and sexy "melo" of the roaring nineties develops into nnp rtf thr» m/tot iti4>ii*4«n1*» *u«iii actor.

Liability Insurance for All Car Drivers Perhaps the frightful number of automobile accidents involving permanent injuries and/or loss of life will be automatically reduced in view of tire-rationing and prospective gas-rationing, not to mention ultimate car-requisitioning, but the problem of irresponsible drivers without liability insurance is still a live question.

This is a rather unusual law. In Iowa discussion has centered on a proposal to require insurance, K,,f •* +u ^_ ' «di«my insurance, but if the Freeman's summary is correct the New York law requires nothing till an accident occurs. The law is said to have been patterned after one enacted in New Hampshire five years ago. Massachusetts has a law requiring liability insurance, and that would seem to be the better way. Again assuming that the Freeman's summary is accurate and complete the New York law provides no protection for the innocent victim or victims of an ac cident caused by a financially irresponsible driver. The driver himself suffers penalties but that doesn't help his victim or victims.
