Planned Flying Pay* Off A FTER two months, of trial flights over the North Atlantic, for which four nations pooled data and resources, it is announced that trans-Atlantic airlines are.feasible. Simultaneously comes news that coast-to-coast American commercial air service is now 10 years old, with more than *120 million miles of flying to its account, Trans-continental trip time has been lowered from 48 to 15 hours. For such important accomplishments, these brief, terse announcements strike the observer as somewhat understated. 'Actually, they are in complete accord with the new attitude -toward pioneering:. And they recall the Bureau of Air Commerce suggestion that planned air progress is much more satisfactory! much more fruitful than any specie of stunt flying. In the light of .these two latest accomplishments of aviation, it seems that tthe Bureau's advice was good. We are ', learning to blaze trails without ballyhoo. ; Manhattan Spittoon Spat .QPITTOON is a horrid word and cuspidor isn't much better. 'O But combine either of them with a swastika and a Nazi •signature and you have something that passes all understanding for Manhattan borough president Samuel Levy. Twenty-four new spittoons delivered for use around Mr. ^Levy's office were inscribed on the Swastika and the words, "Made in Germany." Immediately and definitely they were rejected. ,. Mr. Levy was tempted 1p remind the city purchaser that the man who appointed him to office was Mayor Fiorello La,Guardia, vice president of the Nazi Boycott League. Furthermore, Mr. Levy said, the fiber spittoons were "sleazy." But let's see. Maybe there's room for a compromise. The spittoons may be sleazy. But there's nothing especially ,sweet and fragrant about the current New York mayoralty campaign, either. Maybe the two could be put together to -guard voters against getting their clothes splashed when they wade to the polls. The FamiSy Doctor T. V. Re*. V. 8. Pat OC.

Miscellaneous Glands Now Regarded as Vital Essentials in Good Health - This Is the conclusion of a series . of 29 articles by Dr. Morris Fish- bcin discussing functions and ail- merits of the glands ot the human ' body. (No. 321) - In addition to the glandular materials that have already been mentioned, •there are certain miscellaneous materials now known to be vital-to health. The stomach, for example, secretes juice which is necessary for the digestion of food. There may be, however, other materials coming from the stomach wall which are vital in the growth of the red blood cells. There may be still other substances necessary to the action of the stomach and bowels. It is known that the wall of the intestines secretes certain materials necessary to digestion. When food passes, the wall of the intestines quite likely gives forth these Substances which go into the blood to stimulate the liver and the gallbladder and perhaps also the pancreas. From studies of anemias of various s'orts, we know that the liver contains some substances which is absolutely vital in the development of red blood cells and that an extract of the liver may be given to stimulate red blood cell formation. , It has .been suggested that there are glandular principles which come from the kidney and the heart and from other tissues, but the research on this is still in an early stage. O£ special interest also is the relationship of the glands to the vitamins. It has been shown that the adrenal glands are particularly rich hi vitamin C; the liver is particularly rich in vitamins A and D. If animals are given a diet that is without vitamins A and B, eventually the thyroid gland breaks down. It is established that excess amounts of thyroid gland have a definite relationship to vitamin Bl, and neuritic symptoms appearing in hyperthyroidism seem to be related ot a deficiency of this vitamin. This new information relative to the glands of internal secretion is an indication of how little we know about them. , .Lack of knowledge makes necessary a warning against exploitation of glandular materials by quacks and charlatans and unethical druggists who endeavor to treat diseases by mixtures o" glands that are like giblet soups. Such mixtures have been shown to be without any real value, since mos glandular preparations are effective only when given directly into the blood. By Olive Roberts Barton Adult Attitude Makes Children Self-Conscious People in general are afraid of children. A man will address another man whp is a stranger, and a woman will speak to a woman, but unless they are very unusual, they will hesitate to spy a word to a strange child. ; Moreover, adults are not at ease with other children than their own. Even aunts and uncles don't know how to talk to Johnny sincerely half the time. Strange, js/i't it? Even dogs and eat$ are treated better than this. No wonder children get the idea that to be a child is a bit of an ordeal, llhey wonder, I gather, just how each new person they meet is going to take them. Boy on Defensive • The boy walks across a strange field, fp? instance, thinking something like this: "It 'fee farmer sees me, he will wat^h to see what I'm doing. Maybe he will put me off. H I were a man, he would not pay any attention. Kids are always suspected of being up to something. I'm only going to look at the creek, but if I were a deer or a woodchuck, nobody would bother about me." He doesn't reason it all out this v/ay, but he has a subconscious feeling that he is not welcome because he is only Jour feet high instead of six. The child outside his regular orbit of home and school, or his street, sel tlom is himself, really. How can h be with people talking down to him ir that patronzing voice, usually a strain ed falsetto, and saying foolish things •How old are you, sonny?" as thoug anybody cared. "Where are you ir school?" "Who is your teacher?" An all the old bromides that he has to an swer over and over again. The way to treat a child of any ag is to ha serious with him. Look him in the eye and ask what make of plan he likes best, or did he ever catch an fish. Treat Them as Equals He knows a lot about everything much more than you do half the tinv He will feel at ease with you at one when he discovers you are behavin like a human being and not a sticl Lose that fear. No youngster is an different from a grownup. If childre are shy and queer sometimes, at tha they behave better than we woul were we shunned, or patronized, o suspected, or worse still, tolerated. 'Even parents often miss the fac that they are dealing with peopl quite as intelligent as themselves. The take the great big attitude, when it is not necessary. Treat your boy as you would your brother, your girl as you would your sister, and see how great •they can be.

CHAPTER III TTOW long she knelt there on - 1 " 1 - the cold ground beside Amy's body, Cilly did not know. She did not hear the innumerable cries and questions of her neighbors; she did not see the crowd slowly gathering—the crowd of half- awakened men and women in all stages of midnight undress. .It seemed as if the world had suddenly begun to spin in a crazy, fast-motion kaleidoscope, and she would soon awaken to sanity. Endless seconds passed into three short minutes, and a radio police car drove up to the door. Two officers stepped out. Half a dozen people in the crowd spoke at once, each eager to tell his own version of the accident. "She fell from the roof, officer. She lelt herself going and screamed." . "She didn't fall. She jumped. She screamed first and then jumped. I saw it." . . . "No, she didn't. She fell out of a window. I saw her." The officers bent over .the body. They looked at each other and nodded in solemn significance. The older of the two lifted Cilly to her feet. "Take this .young lady inside, Halleran," he instructed his partner, "and phone the medical examiner. Dolan, too. I'll get a re- port'out here." Dully, Cilly walked into the house with Officer Halleran. The door of her apartment was still unlocked—still waiting for Amy who would never walk through it again. * * » ttHPHB girl was a relative of A yours?" Halleran asked. "No. Just a friend. We shared the apartment together." Halleran hesitated. "I'm afraid,' he said quietly, "that she's dead.' Cilly nodded. "She couldn't have'fallen al that distance—and lived." The officer looked about for a phone. "Mind if I use your phone?" he asked. "We'll have to get the medical examiner here before she can be moved." Cilly indicated the phone on her desk. "You'll want to notify her relatives," Halleran suggested. "Do you know where to reach them?" Cilly remembered one. An Aun Harriet, in New Hampshire. Amy had never mentioned anyone else "There's only her aunt," Cilly told the officer. "Miss Harrie Kerr in Interlaken, N. H. Am; hadn't seen her in a long time. suppose I could send a night let ter?" Halleran nodded. "Guess there' nothing she could do tonight. She'll probably wire you instructions for the funeral." Cilly wanted to phone Jim and tell him, but Jim lived in uptown Manhattan. It would take him an hour to get home. Perhaps she ought to tell Harry Hutchins, too, but she didn't feel equal to talking to him. He'd make a great deal of noise with his sympathy and probably not care a bit. Illustration by Ed Gunder Hell ask me a million questions, Cilly thought, and what will I tell him? She tried to organize her own thoughts about Amy's death — but it was all so unreal. Soon another officer arrived. Halleran introduced him. "Sergeant Dolan, Miss Pierce. He'll handle everything." . Halleran left them alone. * * * JTE'LL handle everything. He'll •^ ask me a million questions, Cilly thought, and what will I tell him? She tried to organize her own thoughts about Amy's death •but it was all so unreal. "The young lady was a relative of yours?" Sergeant Dolan asked. She'd already answered that, but of course he didn't know. "No. A friend. We've been working together in the Cannon Building for about six months. Two months ago, Miss Kerr decided to share my apartment with me. It seems now as if I know very little about her. . . ." "Do you know of any reason why she might have committed suicide?" Cilly started. "No! Oh, no, she didn't commit suicide!" Immediately she regretted speaking so definitely. "Why do you say that?" Sergeant Dolan asked. ''What else could it be?" Cilly dropped her eyes wearily. "Oh, I'm sure 1 don't know. But there was no reason in the world tor Amy to—to do that." Was there? After all, what did she know of Arny Kerr's life before a few months ago? Was there some shadow from the past thai frightened her? Amy hadn't acted frightened or unhappy today, and surely not this evening. Sergeant Dolan sensed hor uncertainty. "I've been all over the roof," he said. "There's no place in the front of the house where a person could accidentally fall over. In the rear, yes. A person could easily trip in the darkness back there where the ledge is low. But the body wouldn't fall in front of the house, right under your window. Tell me about this evening—did anything happen to disturb the young lady? Was she in good spirits?" "She was never any happier, not since I have known her," Cilly stated. She was happy to meet Jim, she thought, but she didn't say it. "A friend of h'ers, Mr. Hutchins, and a friend of mine, Mr. Kerrigan, spent the evening with us. Wo played bridge, and Amy seemed to have a very good time. The boys left at 11:30." She did not add that Jim stayed about 15 minutes longer. "Amy went up on the roof to air a dress that had come from tlie cleaner's smelling too much of benzine after they had gone." * * * CERGEANT DOLAN was making ^ notes in a little black book. "What did you say the nameb of these young men were?" he asked. Cilly told him, giving the addresses of their hotels. '•What about money?" Dolai asked. "Did .she have any financial problems. Was she employed?' "She had a very nice position . secretary to Harvey Ames o. Ames & Wakefield, real estate people. She liked her work very much." There was a light knock on the door and a short, plump little man entered. "Hello, Doc," Dolan said. Then to Cilly, "Dr. Bender, the medical examiner." Dr. Bender nodded in a kindly manner to Cilly. "Unpleasant hour to run in on you, young lady," he said apologetically, "and unpleasant business, too. However, I've taken care of everything." "Make an examination, Doc?" "Too dark for much of that. Fall was enough to kill anyone, of course. We've moved the body, and there'll be a thorough exam- nation tomorrow. What about his young lady tonight? You won't want to stay here?" "Yes, I think so," Cilly said. I'll be quite all right, and much more comfortable than anywhere else." 'Dare say you're right," agreed .he doctor. Dolan arose to go. : Guess there's nothing more I can learn here tonight," he said to Cilly. "We come up against these suicides every day—and in most cases we never know why they have to be. Melancholia of a sort, I guess. Or insanity. Hard to tell. Well, goodnight, miss. Sure you'll be all right here alone?" I'm sure, thank you both." * * * /"•ILLY was glad when they both ^ had gone, although they left her feeling miserably alone and terrified. Just two hours ago, and Amy was here too. The apartment still echoed her laughter. Her slippers were there under the bed, where she had left them early in the evening. Her bed was turned down, waiting for her. A terrible trembling seized Cflly. She began to cry. She reached into her pajama pocket for her handkerchief. She touched the piece of newspaper that had fallen from Amy's hand. Curiously, she smoothed it out and examined it. A Utah newspaper clipping. Blueflelds, Utah. What was Amy doing with that? It was part of the "town gossip" column. Mr. and Mrs. John Blah- announce the birth of a son. . . . Miss Margaret Seldon spending the week in Denver. . . . Joe Barlow, hermit of Blue Peak, failed to appear in Bluefields for his semiannual "storing up." A delegation from town discovered his shack in the mountains unoccupied, and it is feared that Joe wandered too far during one of last winter's blizzards and froze to death. . . . Small town news events. What did it mean to Amy? How could the birth of the Blairs' son, or Margaret Seldon's vacation, or the disappearance of a hermit in Blue- iields, Utah, concern Amy Kerr, of New York and New Hampshire? Cilly crumpled the clipping and dropped it into a vase, turned toward the bedroom. Suddenly she stopped. . . . In the stillness of the apartment she heard the dumbwaiter going slowly down the shaft. It passed the level of her kitchen. She started, at lirst. Queer time of night for people to be running the dumbwaiter. Or was it time so soon for the milkman? But what did it matter? She was suddenly quite drowsy. She put out the light and went inside to bed.

In n speech commemorating the 150th anniversary of the signing of the constitution, he swung without preface into n discourse on the battle of last winter over the administration proposal tt) rc- fnthers hns remembered the constitution nnd thrown its shield nbout oil | who sought its protection. "When, in the hate or zeal of some great effort those in control of the po- piticnl forces of the notion have looked upon the bill of rights as nn obstacle to their aims, tlie court has proved to be ns James Mndison expressed the hope and belief it would prove nn impenetrable bulwark aginst every assumption for power in the legisltive or the executive,' and hns furthermore resisted 'every encroachment upon the rights' which the peo- •< pie had stipulated in the constitution should never be disregarded or surrendered." Defense of Personal Liberty In behalf of the theory that "personal liberty has become incompatible with economic security," it is argued, Borah said, that: "The things to be clone are so big, so vpst. thnt they must be done by the government and the citizens must yield up all discretion, all judgment, together with most of liis ancient pirv- a ileges and liis personal liberty." "If that is true," Borah continued, "we began wrong 150 years ago. If that is true, Washington and Jefferson were wrong and Mussolini and Hitler are right. This theory would write 'lie' across the face of the declaration * of independence and 'obsolete' across the federal constitution. "But the theory itself is false, and has been proven to be false by all human experience. Personal liberty, the discretion and judgment of the citizens, „ are not incompatible with, but are essential factors in economic security. "In those countries where the- people have been induced to give up their rights as free men and free women under the promise of economic security, they have lost both. There .has « f been greater advancement since the declaration of independence and the adoption of the federal constitution to the moral and physical well being, to the happiness nnd dignity of the man in the factory, in the store, on tlie farm und in the mine, to make it possible to own homes and to dwell in them in security, than in the 3,000 years preceding." _. „.... „..-„ — the objective of a •eorganization of the high tribunal, President Roosevelt also will deliver a institution Day address Friday night. Borah assailed as false what he evmed a current "pessimistic" theory hut economic .security can be had only 'by sacrificing personal liberty. Sc criticized those who, he said, have jeen asserting that the constitution is lot n "sacred document." It is sacred, le said, against all changes except those written into it by tlie people. Refers to Dictators He referred scornfully to developments in the lands of the dictators, declaring thnt the constitution nnd free courts to interpret it safeguard Amerca against such experiments. He took exception to recent statements emanating from Germany concerning rights of Nazis abroad. Without referring to Germany by name, Borah referred to n "high official of a foreign government" and declared thnt official had said "emissaries from hi csountry coming here to preach their doctrine must be protected by our government, that they must enjoy, as it were, immunity in their efforts to sow the seeds of religious intolerance, race hatred, and arbitrary power among us." Borah said that these emissaries will have liberty of expression, but if they break the law they will put on trial "not in the puppet courts of their homeland, but in independent courts. Supreme Court Protector Referring again to the need for un- trammelled courts, he said: "There is no such thing ns security for the masses or protection for minority groups, political, racial, or religious, never hns been, and in the nature of things never can be, under any form of government save government where the people through their representatives mnke the laws and un- Irollcd courts construe them." There have been times, he said, when "political forces" have sought to disregard constitutional guarantees, and in fact to "close the courts." "But," he added, "when national feeling has run high—as national feeling at times inevitably will—when great leaders have swayed With the storm—as great loaders sometimes do— Lazy, bored, gouchy you may feel this way as a result of constipation Constipation is an enemy of pleasure.
