The Citizen'* Interest in Public Spending /GERMANY'S National Socialist party, reviewing the na- VI tion's "magical" recovery from war burdens and depression pitfalls, is crowing with all the heils ad hochs that the ferment of such a national ego can produce. And from a distance, Germany seems to have something to crow about. Five years ago, internal troubles and issolation from the outside world threatened complete undoing .of the reich. Today, factories are operating overtime, nearly everyone has a job and the Nazi banner carries tidings of reclaimed military and commercial prestige to the seven seas. Moreover, all this was accomplished through Nazi industry and diligence alone, without foreign aid and in some cases, actually in the face of foreign interference. Germany, then, would seem to be a good example for other 1 nations which still are struggling with problems of wages, unemployment, bndget-balancing and other confusing phases of modern economics. But those other nations — and that includes the United States — had better look closer before they leap. XXX fHE reason is discovered in the foundation that underlies 1'this new miracle skyscraper of German prosperity. In the -two years before Adolf Hitler carne to power, the state had poured more than 14 billion marks into jobless doles. Hitler continued this spending and added to it the cost of another artificial boom through a vast rearmament program. These policies put men to work but they boosted the public debt to more than 54 billion marks. They started factories running again but they placed a terrific tax load upon the people. Behind Nazi boasts of recovery lies the strangling of wages and social welfare benefits and the reduction of employers and employes to the status of "work agents" of the state. In place of the normal law .of supply and demand, the government steers economy by decree. XXX A LL this points toward a cataclysmic explosion, for in Germany's case at least, subsidized prosperity is an investment that yields no economic return and provides no substantial basis for future building. Therein lies a stern lesson for the United States. Our own government has been involved in some big spending in the narae* of Vecovery. Our owli taxes are rising. And we are •not agreed that our own money, poured into the anti-depression war chest, will yield an equitable economic payoff. We have not yet equaled the German excesses. And there is much to recommend the principle of "priming and pump." Bufany good thing can be carried too far, and every American citizen has a personal interest in seeing that his government knows when to stop. "He Never Knew What Hit Him*' surance with smaller premium payments, and how to cut the corners generally. Moreover, says Mr. Giles, these savings do not call uaon you to give up any of the good things of life. You won't have to make things at home or turn repair man. You needn't grease your car, or test tooth paste for your money's worth. Want to save $36 a year on milk alone? Want to save hundreds of dollars on taxes? Do you know what iimple trick makes sheets last 25 per *a*±mm *f»| f P*V; OF THE cent longer? Want to save ?100 on that next used car you buy? Mr Giles has spent years finding the answers. And it's not too much to say that every man and woman of moderate means ought to know the answers.—P. F. octor T. X. Re*. V. S. Pat. Off. JO JLIOM. This is the 19th in a series of 20 articles by Dr. Morris Fishbein, dealing with the function of glands iu the human body. (No. 320) Situated behind the thyroid gland ln= the throat near the windpipe are two •" soft, reddish bodies, each about the size of a bean. They are known as the parathyroid glands. When these glands are removed, the person concerned suffers from a condition called tetany. In tetany there are spasmodic movements, loss of weight, pain and tingling in the hands and feet, cramping in the legs and arms, and other serious symptoms. The hair may fall out and the nails may change. The skin becomes thinner and there is a great deal of excessive perspiration The parthyroid glands are concerned with the manner in which the human body uses calcium and phosphorus. Calcium and phosphorus are important in the development of bones and teeth. Calcium in the blood is of importance in controlling the degree of irritability of nerves and muscles. Calcium is important in the clotting of blood. Since the parathyroid glands are known to have these definite effects on the body by the secrettion which they '* pour directly into the blood, it is now possible to use the parathyroid glandu- • lar material for definite purposes in the control of symptoms of disease. When parthyroid glandular extract is given to the human being by injection, the amount of calcium, in the blood is increased and the amount of phosphorus is decreased. Calcium necessary for the blood is obtained in some cases by withdrawing it from the bones, so it is customary to give extra calcium in the diet or as a drug in order that the bones may not be changed by the excess of calcium taVen from them. It is known also that vitain D is of importance in controlling the use of calcium by the body. In sufficient amounts, vitamin D will raise the amount of calcium in the blood and increase the absorption of calcium from the intestines. Chief advantage of parathyroid extract instead of vitamin D on vertain occasions lies in. the fact that parathyroid brings about son effect more promptly. The effects last about 24 hours after one injection. It is possible, of course, to inject calcium directly into the blood as well. By DK. MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, lomrnal ot the American Medical AMoetettan. ud the Health Ma* mine. m spioa 03 pasQ aay In certain instances as, for example, in radium poisoning and lead poisoning, the use of parathyroid material will help remove poisonous material from the body. The function of the parathyroid gland ja; however, to preserve a normal nervous system and a normal amount of muscle action. Since the heart is a muscle, a change in the amount of calcium may definitely affect the heart. When a woman is going to have a child, she must supply the child through her body with the necessary amounts of calcium and phosphorus for its growth. If it is not supplied, the child's body will actually take calcium and phosphorus from the mother's body. For this reason in earlier days women who were pregnant frequently sufered with decay of the teeth and similar disturbances. NEXT: Miscellaneous gland materials. a By Bruce Catton How to Live Better Though Prices Rise It's going to cost you vastly more to live during the next few years, economist's, technical authorities, private and government agencies agree. And the prediction is supported by retail price increases of from 14 to 40 per cent since 1934. In the past year alone retail prices in general have risen 9.2 per cent. "How to Beat the High Cost of Living" (Simon and Schuster, $1) rolls off the presses, therefore, at an opportune time. In this book, Author Ray Giles points the way to 864 "money savers for everyday use." "One way—and perhaps your only hope—of counteracting this general rise in prices," says Mr. Giles, "is to manage the family income wisely." Then Mr. Giles goes on to declare that not one family in a hundred regulates and balances its household budget with much success. i So he flings the challenge at you in j nine amazing chapters; amazing because he tells you how to eat better and save money; how to dress better on less; how to make your shelter dol- | lars go further; how to cut the high I cost of heating; how to buy better in-1 —Illustration by Ed Guilder It wasn't pleasant up on the roof at midnight. . . .

Actually, Cilly was thinking: "If Jim doesn't insist on getting married before then." He'd been on the point of it a' dozen times, Cilly knew, but something always held him back. "Oh, Cilly, darling!"—it was Jim who had christened her "Cilly" in place of the prim and pure "Priscilla" for her great-grandmother— "Oh, Cilly, if I could only run off with you right this very day . . . you do love me, don't you, darling? You will wait for me, no matter what happens?" Wait for him! Hadn't she waited 27 years for someone exactly like Jim Kerrigan? If she waited another thousand years, would she ever find anyone else so utterly dear, so thoughtful, so tender? Seven, eight, nine, forty. . . . He'd never said exactly just what held him back, but Cilly understood. It was his new job. He had only been in New York a little over six months; he hud j to make good before he could a.ik ' a girl to marry him. She could well afford to be patient. Seven, eight, nine, sixty. . . . Or could she? * * * "POR the first time since she had known Jim, she felt a little twinge of uncertainty. These past few months it had been just Jim and she—just the two of them together.

It was just too bad she couldn't have gone for Amy's date in the same spirit. Harry Hutchins. A loud-mouthed, conceited fool. The sort who can always tell the other fellow how to play bridge. A wise guy. Cilly marveled that a girl like Amy could have stood his company for one evening. Amy was highly attractive — a girl with charm and poise and good breeding. Surely she could see through the bluff that was Harry Hutchins. But apparently she didn't. To all appearances, she was completely gone on him. Why, if two days passed without her hearing from him, she'd call him at his hotel. It made Cilly mad. Once she remarked about it to Amy, not that she had any right to comment. But Amy was such a good-hearted soul; she'd never realize when someone was giving her a raw deal. "Let him chase you," Cilly had said. "There's more zest to a man when you keep him guessing." But Amy had just shrugged. "Don't worry about me, Cilly," she replied. "You don't understand this affair between Harry and me." * # * TVO, Cilly didn't understand it. •*• But she understood Harry Hutchins. Only to well. He was the answer to every maiden's prayer—at least he thought so. And poor Amy was just another girl who had fallen prey to his deadly charm. Cilly knew that Harry had other interests. In greener fields. It was no secret that Harry Hutchins was making a heavy play for Gloria Harmon, whose father had left her a string of chain stores. The Brooklyn rotogravure sections printed photographs of them together—at the races, at the smartest supper clubs in Manhattan, at the Harmon estate on Long Island. Even tonight, he had boasted of spending the previous week-end "clown at Harmony Hall." But all this went over poor Amy's head. Either she had not a bit o£ jealousy iu her makeup, or she had a forlorn hope that in time she could win her precious Hurry bad 1 .. Seven, ei^ht, nine, one hundred. . . .

Will John or Mnry bo put back? Will they be happy making new friends? Will the teachers be ns good? All sorts of problems confront tlio parent who is contemplating n change, so a short discussion may help to nllay your fenrs. While it used to be a good old American custom to "put back" the new pupil, thus giving an impression of superiority in the latest school, today it is almost obsolete. This is especially true in states like New York, where the universal rating is based upon stale-wide regents' examinations that makes one standard for all. But even in those cities nnd towns where examinations are still individual to the school, the grade books call for almost the same coverage, of work. The iden today is to place the child where lie was, until he proves that he is beyond his depth, which seldom happens. New Friendships Broaden As for new friends, it is good for a child to "make" them. Of course, it is always a heartbreak to leave the fellows one lias known so well for so long, or the girl chums that Mary has learned to love, but we ^arc looking at the cheerful side of it now, and seeking tho good. One makes friends literally. Ho docs it by compelling strangers to accept him. not on his terms, but theirs. Old acquaintances have learned to tolerate nnd overlook, so now the rough corners of character must be smoothed off. Carelessness or rudeness have to take back seats, and in their place diplomncy nnd consideration must bait the hook in the new stream. In turn the stranger in a new land will have to learn that children nre children wherever he goes, and he himself must not be too set in his ideas of whom he likes nnd doesn't like. He will grow broader and bigger by having to make new adjustments to new friends every once in awhile. At first he may have n few bnttles to fight, as, alas, the intrenched may try him out, but this won't hurt him. It is good for him, unless things are too unfair, to have to make his own way. Teachers Are Variable Teachers? They come good and poor everywhere, but mostly good. The poor teacher has seen her day. And if, let me whisper this softly, your little Junior has been having n snap of it because he was "John Z. Jones, the Good Citizen's Son," then maybe it will be an experience for the boy to find himself in an environment where he is only Johnny Jones, the boy in the striped sweater. They nil shake down in n few weeks. Move if it suits you. It is hard on the child, but only for a little while. Make it easier for him by keeping in touch with his former cronies, if possible. Film Love All in Day's Work But It's Still a "Serious" Job HOLLYWOOD.—Love-making is a pretty serious business, when it is a business. Most screen players take more time composing themselves for a love scene than for a bit of heavy drama. Says Tyrone Power: "Maybe it's because we feel so doggoncd silly." You wouldn't think that Franchot Tope felt silly doing love scenes with Joan Crawford. And maybe ho didn't, either. But ho behaved very unlike a husband while preparing for romantic sequences in "ThR Bride Wore Red." Seemed nervous. And Miss Crawford, when I saw her, anyway, paced up and down twisting a handkerchief and looking as though she were on the verge of tears. Greta Garbo always likes to do her love scenes near the beginning of a picture. Your guess is as good as anyone's as to the reason. At first thought it doesn't seem very flattering to her leading men that she should prefer being kissed and .embraced by them before she even is well acquainted with them. On the other hand, it has been sug- gested that there's no quicker way to get acquainted. Before her love scenes are to be filmed, Miss Gnrbo takes a day or two off to rehearse in front of a full-length mirror at home. That's what she did for Charles Boyer in "Conquest" and for Robert Taylor in "Camille." Boyor didn't seem in the least flustered, but prior to a shot Taylor always retreated to a remote corner of the stage to commune with his jitters. Taylor is by no means an exhibitionist in matters amorous. During production of "This Is My Affair" he and Barbara Stanwyck repeatedly botched a clinch while a few people were looking on. Thereafter the set was closed to everybody whenever the stars had to make love before the camera. Substitute Lovers TiUise Rainer is another who takes these things very seriously. Lo.cks herself in her dressing room for half an hour. Nothing bothers Spencer Tracy, though, nor William Powell. While making "Double Wedding," Powell sometimes sat in the director's chair and bossed a love scene rehearsed by his stnntl-in and Myrnn Loy's stand-in. The two substitutes seemed to enjoy it. » Gladys George Is like Helen Hnyes in her ability to turn emotions on mid off. Unless she's nctunlly learning lines she never builds up n preliminary mood. She can tell n funny story, walk briskly into n scene, and in 10 seconds be drenching her leading mnn's 3 lapels with tears. But there is nn instant of preparations. Just as the camera turns, Miss George ducks her head, closes her eyes, and seems to sny to herself: "This is serious business." i Charles Laughton used to have n remarkable scheme for making himself look romantically ardent. And still does, for nil I know. He'd trot uround the stage a couple of times and arrive in front of the cnmern and his ladylove, breathing heavily. * Ad Lib Stinger Some of the stars who have to miiko love in celluloid are not very friendly off-screen. A few are downright antagonistic. Somewhere in Hollywood there, is a ,, strip of film, rarely and privately shown, which reveals the true feelings of u certain lending lady for a certain male star of a few years ago. They had made a picture together— a difficult and trying piece of drama— and hnd been recalled for n day of *' minor retakes. The lust shot, which was to bo inserted about the middle of the flm, showed a parting of the lovers. He said: "I'm off, my dear. But if shi'ps still sail I will find my w;iy (1 back to you." She held him close and murmured, "Goodby— goodby! Somehow I feel that this is goodby." That was supposed to be the end of the shot, but the actress went right on. She said: "Anyway, I hope it's good- * by— you up-stngc, good-for-nothing camera-hog!"
