It seems to me that June, one of the hottest months in the year, is ill chosen as Commencement month. During the recent furnace-like temperature students and teachers alike have gone through purgatory, if not hell itself, going through the final of finals, or Commencement Week, or both. A few years ago I went to Boston to the Wellesley Commencement. The trip both, ways, the hot nights in hotels, not to mention the prostrating heat of the days, left me a wreck.

He needed to be only cool, patient, polite, and helpful. He might as weH have left his brains at home. The whole silly show wa sterribly unfair because the brighter committee members—Norris of Nebraska, Bone of Washington, and Wheeler of Montana—were on Tugwell's side and had fun shooting barbs into the exposed hides of his critics. Painful sensations of the latter began when "Cotton Ed" learned to his surprise that Tugwell's "dirt farming' experience compared favorably with his oyn. Bailey said at one point that he "couldn't see much difference between a scientist and a politician," but others could. Quite a few people who think Tug* well i sto cocksure, too ivory tower, too supercilious—or worse—were badly disappointed. Rivalry Crops Out Behind Smith's attempt to block Tugwell's confirmation is his rivalry with South Carolina's other senator, Jimmy Byrnes. Smith, gruff, rugged, walrus-mustaehed and on the verge In every ease, either the fates sent scorching weather at the time or had turned on the sun with special violence for examinations. It is fair neither to. teachers nor students. As for th\ Utter, they are young and may be able to stand it, but the instructor is older, sometimes very old, and the marking of veritable tons of theses and papers and a dozen records to keep is cruel beyond words. Year after year they go on, these colleges, hugging tradition and waiting for daisy time, or rose day, or the fleet coming in, just so the chain may not be broken. High schools emulate the colleges. Elementary schools, to, seem to be obsessed with the June idea. Why June? Why not May? Surely after four years of work the powers that be will know whether Jane or Will is ready to pass without that last awful month. Why the Gxfoi'd gown? Why any kind of trappings whatever in hot weather? Why Not in April? I believe that final examinations would be better criteria of knowledge i ftaken in April when the brain can work. The last month needs no examining. Let us hand the victors and H'-i'v't-S&yS'' '•'-•' : i:l?°^-^i ^y :;;V%'Us-- ".."v;"-y.v.

The sheets of cronic invullds, ns well as the body clothing, should bo kept smooth. It is also very important to remove crumbs of food or any other materials which might lend to roughness or tinevenness of the sheets. The first sign of » bed sore is usually a diffuse redness of the skin, which disappears on pressure. When these spots sire found, steps should be taken immediately to remove the source of irritation and to prevent the possibility of infection, by application of suitable antiseptic substances.

GLORIFYING YOURSELF faded and she keeps all of her under- things in boxes or drawers which contain little sachet bags in her favorite scent. I know a woman who goes m extensively for sachet. Her dresser drawers ancl the wearing apparel that is kept in them smell like fresh violets. Her handkerchief box gives off a pleasant fragrance of wild roses when you fling back the lid, and her shoe ties arc tied up with little- sachet bags that match the scent, in her chests or drawers. The sachet habit is an important point in the- beauty contest as far as this girl is concerned. As a matter of fact, her example is a pretty good one to follow.

The process is exceedingly painful and distressing. Bed sores occur more often in agec persons than in the young, but they occur primarily because the tissue.i have lost their vitality through illness or age. In young persons bed sores do not occur frequently, regardless of the nmcunt of pressure or how greatly the skin may be soiled. In the aged, cr in those 1 who have been in bed for a Icng time, the bed sores develop most often in places that are pressed upon or in parts of the body in which the skin is macerated, due to various causes. Whether we are asleep or awake, our bodies are not in any one position for any length of time. However, if a person lies unconscious or paralyzed, cr if he is so weak that he cannot turn his body easily, pressure occurs steadily on certain places and the vitality of the ikin already injured is damaged more greatly. Cf course, the condition can be helped by moving the patient frequently, to change his position, ancl also by usinf water cushions and other pads to take away the pressure and to shift it about. The second most common cause of these bed sores is maceration of the skin from sweat or from other secretions of the body. This maceration makes the skin easily vulnerable to infection. The bed sores under such circumstances may be prevented by scrupul- our cleanliness, by removing of secretions and cxrctio'is as rapidly as possible, and by frequent washings with water, followed by sponging with alcohol, which tends to harden the skin and destroy germs on the surface. Any breakdown of the skin's sur- We represent Insurance companies of national scope mid famous for (lie prompt settlement of claims against them. ROY ANDERSON L CO.
