B ECAUSE all the examples and object lessons were plunked right into his own lap in his own home—if he had one—the American citizen learned more about economic theories, laws ;ol supply and demand, taxes and business cycles during the 'depressionthan he ever knew before. A6 this knowledge was acquired, it was applied to practical problems. And helped .tide the nation through dangerous periods when the.balance of our entire system was endangered by suffering and discontent. But with the rfetufn of what purports to be normalcy, people are lazying back to the attitude that they don't have to worry 'about the intricacies of economics or government any more, and that from now until the prosperity curve goes over the top again, anything that happens must be all for the best. - • • , ^ ...... .."••;"• x x x ^tiE only error in that philosophy is that it conflicts with 1 tKe,faets^-facts that show debts, taxes, food, clothing, and shelter Costs, and government expenses mounting into a miraculous total. In its last* long, weary session, Congress managed to make appropriations totaling nearly nine and one-half billion 'dollars. The amount for the public debt interest alone showed ^increase of $515,000,000, and the public debt proper reached approximately $37^000,000,000. . - .Theste gigantic financial involvements are too easily waved aside .by politicians with references to, the great price the flation'has to pay fof the salvation of the happiness and prosperity of 130,000)000 people. But the troth is that every citizen is paying directly or 'ijftfifeetly"for this salvation, and if a man can't get it all paid off in a lifetime..his children Will have to finish the job. • The exasperating ease with which public money is spent may be traced not only in national government, but through state, county and city administrations as well. The habit is not necessarily Confined to one party or one period. It just seems to turn up when the man who has to take it on the chin —and ori the pbcketbqofc—lets his'guard drop. XXX . THE Whole moral is that the public should maintain its de- 1 fensfe by making its elective representatives public servants in fact as well as in Fourth of July oratorical fantasies. When Congress appropriates more'Hliain $400*000,000 ^for military purposes and more than $500,000,000 for navy •purposes, .the voters should know why. Probe into the reasons behind state tax increases; ferret bttt the cause for the higher county levy or the boost in street car rates, or whatever it may be that is costing more. If .you aren't satisfied -with the answers, smoke out the truth. <. A"rtd if your public servant Won't co-operate, elect one who wijl. Here are bigger problems than ever, tumbling right out of every weekly pay envelope. And the yVay to face them is still bejttg taught in that big, free school of 'practical experience. Never Say Die Reds W HO thought, during the last presidential campaign, that within a year the Communist party might become a con- Vincing candidate for public pity? Reduced to competition with swastika wavers for public scmare attention, bustled off the ballot and generously subjected to the "silent treatment," the party, for all practical purposes, has sunk to a new low level'. One of the cruelest rebuffs came from -ITew York's Mayor LaGuardia> who verbally manhandled an offer of Communist votes in his campaign for re-election. ;•' Greatest producer of red herrings (made to measure) in modern electioneering history, the Communist partv seems to have dwindled awav to the comparable status of raggedy, weed-choked nickle factory on a deserteU prairie. But hold those tears! Death may approach but never will it completely shroud the Red body politic. Not with elections •ius<- a .short haul over the horizon and campaign issues hard to find. The Family Doctor T. K. Rev. V. S. Pat. 0*. By DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN MItor, lomnud ot tbe American Medical AiwetatJon, ud of Byfela, the Health Iodine Controls Action of Thyroid, Conditions Sufferer for Operation This is the 18th in a series of 20 articles by Dr. Morris Fishbeiii, discussing the glands of the human body. (No. 319J Doctors have learned that overfunc- tioning of the thyroid gland can be controlled to a certain extent by giving small amounts of iodine. When iodine is given, the rate of the body chemistry is at once lessened. The pulse, which has previously been rapid, becomes slower. Some of the other symptoms which are signs of overaction of the thyroid begin to disappear. The iodine seems to help the condition, but it cetrainly does not cure it. For that reason, iodine is sometimes used in patients who seem to be suffering with excess action of the thyroid to help get them into a condition in which they are able to undergo suitable operation. Operations on the thyroid gland are not particularly dangerous, provided the patient is in a good condition be- fgre the operation is performed. In jnost hospitals nowadays it is customary to put the toxic goiter patient to bed, watch the symptoms constantly, measure his basal metabolic rate every day or two until it becomes stabilized at a lower point. Iodine is given for from 10 to 14 days until the best possible effect is obtained. One of these effects is a drop in the high basal metabolic rate, which is usually a sign of overaction of the thyroid gland. The surgeon may then decide to operate. At the time of the operation he will determine how much of the thyroid gland is to be removed in order to bring about* an effective result In some cases it is customary to trea the thyroid with X-ray in order to lessen its activities.. In other cases, the X-ray is given as a preliminary treatment and the operation is performec afterward. It must be remembored that the thy roid gland contains tissue much liki that of other .glands, and that this tissue is susceptible to the growth o tumors. Obviously a tumor of this type is a great menace to life and health. De cision as to the nature of the tumo must be made promptly if anything effective is to be done in the way of surgery or by the use of X-ray or radium to control its growth.

By Olive Roberts Barton Ka-choo! Fall Weather Is Nothing to Sneeze at This is the time of year to dress chil- Irfen with the weather. From now on here will be more varieties of climate hah there are of modern shoes. The experienced mother knows this, )«t the lady with her first or second oddler may not have noticed that it s sniffle time. They used to say in grandmother's era, "Live.through MarcK and you'll live all year." But for antics of wind and weather, hot days, cool days, wet ones and dry, I'll give the palm to September. And late August can be just as mean. It is put-on, take-off time. When it is hot, keep the children cool. When it is cool, keep the children warm. Sweaters should hang within reach at all hours of the day, and blankets^ night should be handy against the tricky night breeze that shifts to any corner of the compass without warning Fast Cooling Worse Than Chill Rather than make a change in underwear, it is easier to adjust clohtes on the outside. But this is one thing i beware of—an over-heated child shoulc not be allowed to shed his sweater a once when he comes in, because thi lovely cool sensation he experience as the perspiration dries off, is jus what Old Man Sniffles is looking for More children 'catch cold by being to warm and then suddenly cooling ofl than they do by being a bit chilly.

Pu CHAPTER XVIII AS the four pressed forward, the glow ahead took form. It was a vertical thread of light perhaps seven or eight feet high, such as might come from a badly fitted door. Tom rushed toward It, leaned hard with his shoulder. "This is it!" he criad. "Give me a_hand, Mac." ,_ '* * V As DeWitt Montgomery lunged in fanatical anger toward Kay, Grant had thrust himself between them. There was no chance to imprison the madman's arms, and in a flash the revolver was out of his pocket. The detonation of the shot filled the little room, followed by Kay's piercing scream — but Montgomery, in his wild hatred, missed wide. Again Harper rushed, plunging through the acrid smoke and clutching his assailant's revolver wrist with both hands. That slight figure possessed amazing strength. With a movement of his arm he whirled Harper sharply against the table, striking mercilessly with his frte hand. Back against the shelves of books, Kay watched frantically for an opening. She realized that While Grant Harper was younger and more fit, Montgomery had the power of the mad. And he still held to that menacing revolver. t Suddenly she felt a pressure against her back, as though the shelves of books were moving outward! Then she was virtually pushed away by a sudden shove from them. Amazed, ehe turned to see two st'wnge young men rush in through the opening — and, beyond, the frightened faces of MeMta and Priscilla! NEXT: Tlie parathyroid tf.zr. the rescuers * pinned Montgomery's arms behind him and wrested away his weapon, Melita and Priscilla ran joy- Sully toward Kay. "Are you all right?" She nodded weakly. "Y-yes." Fearful in his rage, Montgomery was threatening at the top of his lungs. As Tom Forrest thrust him into a chair he glared savagely. "I should have killed you up there behind the cabin — instead of waiting. And I'll do it yet." His eyes burned into them 1 all. "I'll kill every one of you." Forrest grinned. "Not now ySu won't, old man." He turned to Mac and Harper. "Keep an eye on him and I'll scare up some rope. I move we truss him like a wildcat and take him aboard the yacht to the nearest officer of the law!" "Not a bad idea," agreed Harper, wiping his perspiring face. He looked at the section of book shelves which Mac and. Tom had swung open. "But wait a minute, Tom. I think there's another one of those trick doors on the other side of the room—and someone behind it. Watch Mr. Montgomery there while Mac and I have a look." Harper walked toward the spot where he and Kay had detected sounds beyond the wall. Picking up a fire iron from the hearth he pried between the joints while Mac tugged at one of the shelves. It opened as had the other, but at first they could see nothing beyond. Then as the light of the library seemed to permeate the blackness they witnessed a strange sight. A young woman crouched in a corner of a mere cubicle of a room. She seemed dazed with pain, and as the door opened she hardly did more than raise her eyes. "It's the woman we saw in the cabin!" cried Kay. "She's not dead!" Kay ran to the wounded figure, stooped quickly. "Hurry! Let's take her aboard the boat." :t. * * JTALF an hour later Grant Harper entered the brightly lighted cabin of the "Mistral," rubbing his hands with satisfaction. "That little laboratory room in tbe forecastle makes a swell brig," he grinned. "Mr. Montgomery will be quite safe and comfortable there until we can turn him over to the proper authorities." Kay Dearborn got up from her chair by the settee where the injured woman lay. "She's going to be all right." "You're sure?" Kay took his arm. "Yes. What she needs now is sleep." They left the cabin, went out onto the cool deck of the "Mistral." "I can't understand how we ever found her alive," Harper said. "We found her none too .soon. Montgomery had been very pleasant for a while.—just as he played chiurning host to us. - Then we three girls blundered onto the is. land the night he decided to murder her. She put up a fight, was only wounded, and Montgomery left when he saw us coming up the beach. Later he took her unconscious from the cabin. When we went back to the cabin, it was empty. Meanwhile Montgomery was- busy with me — and then you." They stood against the rail and Grant Harper looked down at her. "I'm glad I came along." "So am I," said Kay fervently. "I owe my life to you." For a moment he said nothing. Then: "I was sort of hoping you'd have still another reason, Kay." * * # CHE looked at him there on the deck of the "Mistral" and had no necessity to ask his meaning. Yet she didn't answer the implied question just then. Instead she looked out over the placid water and said, "Where're Priscilla and Melita? 1 ' Harper laughed. "Last time I noticed them they were sitting on the after deck with Tom and Mac." He took her by the shoulders, turned her squarely around to face him. "If a skipper's crew falls in love, what docs the skipper do?" "They can't fall in love," Kay. said. "That would be mutiny." "And if I insisted that your , 'Chinook' follow the 'Mistral' for , the rest of the cruise—would that be piracy?" "I don't know," smiled Kay Dearborn happily. "But I like the idea!" They sauntered aft to where the others sat watching the first faint streaks of dawn. "I'm afraid," said Harper, "that we're not going to get much work done for the rest of the trip, boys. We've been assigned to protect the 'Chinook'." | "Sounds like a brilliant thought," mentioned Mac, and his brother was quick to second it. ^ "It listens good to me, too," said Priscilla. "As a navigator, Kay, can steer a ship into an awful lot of trouble?" "How about you, Melita?" "Aye, aye, sir. But you've got to be the one who tells Jim Pike what happened!" ' Kay Dearborn looked at GrantA "Then we're all agreed. You know, we came on this cruise because we wanted a 'different' vacation. Here's hoping that the rest ot: it isn't quite as difl'crent." But in her heart she knew that it was going to be. different, indeed—so different that it would change the world for her forever, after.. ' r " -i— THE END a Day By Bruce Catton Advice for Making People Dislike You. These arc the "Personality Days." The guide books to better living, better minds-, more friends, more influence are piling up on each other. And saill the publishers can hardly keep pace with demands. Vowed ''psychologist" Irving Trcss- ler, something ought to be clone to stop this movement that threatens to engulf a nation. So Mr. Tressler wrote Ihe very timely volume "How to Lose friends and Alienate People" (Stackpole, $1.49). Sole purpose of the book, Mr. Tresser warns at the outset, is to help you solve the biggest problem you face; ;he problem of getting rid of people who bore you in your everyday business and social life. And certainly the author knows what he's talking about, laving spent a lifetime "in trying to convince friends that he is non-gregarious, always has been, and always wanted to be." The book contains such chapters as "How to Make People Dislike You Instantly;" "How to Make a Poor First Impression," "How to Bore Bores," Tired of Your Wife?" and others in similar vein. Typical tipoffs: "The quickest and simplest way to make people dislike you is to ask them to take care of your dog over the week-end;" "bore the other person before he bores you;" "talk about your physical troubles." Then there's the dinner table technique. Just offer your neighbor a taste of your food from your fork or spoon, with the accompanying remark "Does this taste funny to you, too?" Mr. Tressler offers probably the only practical, useful working handbook in enemy-making. And even when you've laughed with him to the last bitter line you feel somehow that there's much to be said for his point of view. Take him seriously and he guarantees to give you 10 to 15 more miles a gallon and relieve you of any flat tires you get stuck with. That's a bargain at tiny price.—P. F.

Gee, slit's n jittery driver.' 'That's the kind that make the nervous wrecks." Now a Six-Man Quintet Whops a Spot Right in the Hollywood Film Budget HOLLYWOOD. — Chances are you will be hearing and seeing quite a lot of the Raymond Scott Quintet. Hearing, anyway. They are not much to look at, and for a while the movies may hide them up on the mezzanine behind the potted palms. You see, these young men happen to be musicians, and not entertainers given to the frenzied gesticulations and grimaces of the average swing band. They just sit down and do their stuff, tooting their horns and whopping their bullfiddle and drums and piano in a very businesslike way. In seven months the group has made only one public appearance, but that was enough to make it the talk of Hollywood and the object of a five-way bidding competition which ended in a fat contract with 20-Century Fox. Renames Players Scott has demonstrated some eccen- tirc whimsicalities ' which tickle the movie colony. For one thing, his is the only six-man quintet in the world. He likes the word "quintet," so he uses it, just as he likes and uses the name Scott when his name really in Warho, His saxophonist is Dave Harris, but the leader calls him "Eric Hoex" because, he says, "nobody who can play like that should have a name like 'Dave Harris'." Scott, who plays the piano, composes all the music for his "quintet." But he doesn't write it. The group will work on a number for weeks, and record it, before a note ever is put on paper. Two currnt efforts are called "Dinner Music for a Pock of Hungry Cqn- nibals" and "War Dance for Wooden Indians." There is a suggestion of surrealism in the title, "The Girl With the Light Blue Hair," but the theme is a jazz adaptation of an old French melody. Scott dislikes abstract music and wants his to be as graphic as possible. That's why jazz is his medium. Jazz permits him to build a rhythmic thing like "Power House," a waddling thing like "The Penguin," a jittery thing like "Dynamite Wagon." "Reckless Night on Board an Ocean Liner" is rough and wild; "New Year's feve in a Haunted House" is a ghost carnival in swing-time. Balked at Knee Breeches Scott, now 28, was a New Yorker from a musical family. He was slated for an education in engineering, but changed his mind and attended the Institute of Musical Art, Next he became a staff composer for Columbia Broadcasting System. From various radio orchestras he collected five men who liked to practice with him and try out his ideas. They played a few sustaining programs and made some records ("Toy Trumpet," "Twilight in Turkey," Minuet in Jazz" and "Power House')' which were immediately successful. David Sclznick brought them to Hollywood for an appearance in "Nothing Sacred," but the deal went awry when he proposed costuming them in knee breeches and powdered wigs. They were studying transcontinental timetables when an agent persuaded them to appear at the Trocadero. Said Scott: "I v/as scared to death, and spent two days learning to take a bow!" There were plenty of bows to be token, as it turned out. The Trocadero is show-shop for talent, and numerous movie big-wigs attended that night. Next day the bidding, was East, the competition bitter. Darryl Zanuck got them. He rushed them into a couple of sequences of "All Baba Goes to Town," and has penciled them into future musicals, for i year at least. • • m* More than 8,000 tons of earth will be excavated at Glasgow, Scotland, to make way for the foundation of what is described as the biggest temporary building ever erected.
