Be Prepared for War on Infantile Paraylsis T HE COST of being caught unprepared for one of the great- eat single enemies that American boys and girls musl face—infantile paralysis—never was so fearfully illustrated as in the early eptember flurry of the disease in numerous communities, from coast to coast. In Denver, the life of one girl might have been saved if there had been just one more "mechanical lung" in the Rocky Mountain area. She had to share the only such device available with another paralysis sufferer. .In. other towns and cities, measures to combat the spread of the disease were not begun in earnest until the paralysis threatened to reach epidemic proportions. And before the .public finally was stirred into counter-attack, a grevious toll of death or deformity had been exacted from the helpless youngsters. XXX THERE might be some excuse for being caught off guard 1 in the case of a strange, new plague, unfamiliar to doctors and scientists. But, while we don't know everything about infantile paralysis, we do know what persons it attacks most readily, what measures will prevent its spread. And we do know much about treating persons who have contracted it. Where, then, is the difference between preparedness for this kind of an enemy and the kind of enemy who moves in on the nation with battleships, airplanes and troops? More than $900,000,000 was apropriated in the last session of Congress for army and navy building in anticipation of a war at arms which not only doesn't evist, but which doesn't even threaten. Now the so-called iron lung apparatus costs only a few hundred dollars. And it isn't necessary to wait on the slow- grinding federal machinery to provide these dollars. A few cents from each person in each community will buy a modern mechanical breather and install it in a hospital for year- round emergency use. Furthermore, the apparatus is useful not only in treating paralysis victims, but in many other emergencies as well— pneumonia, electrical shock, near-drowning, broken neck, to name a few. . . - -- x x x " "'''"" • H ERE IS a chance for the nation to try out constructive •prepardeness, the kind that augurs' for health and happiness, and which provides disease-stricken folk with a chance to make a fair fight for life. Organization of the defenses ought to be the next big public welfare goal of every community. And the job ought to be started right now. Disease makes no proclamation of War, and postponing action until the "next time" may be fatal. Tardy Tip From Hirota JAPAN, opening its war on China to "save" the Chinese ** people, seemed to have written the last work in diplomatic camouflage. But a postscript added by Foreign Minister Koki Hirota of Japan carries the farce a step farther. Because Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, top man of China, refuses to co-operate with the invaders, Hirota demands that Chiang be repleaced by a man more sympathic to the Japanese cause. Pressed to explain, Hirota might consistently claim this a measure to "prevent useless bloodshed," to "save from destruction" the Chinese cities under fire, and to make less painful Japan's "service to humanity" in North China. Here is one that Napoleon overlooked. How simple Waterloo would have been with Wellington and Blucher disposed of by decree! What painful suspense Bismarck could have avoided simply by pointing the finger at Louis Napoleon and saying, "You must go!" What terrors of war the whole world might have escaped had Minister Hirota lived to deliver his classic hundreds of years ago! T. 1C. Reg. V. 8. Pat. Off. By OK. MORRIS FISHBHN Ultor, Jownal of the American Medical Association, and of Brgeia. the Health Magazine. Cancer, Imitating Normal Body Tissue, Blocks the Function of Vital Organs This Is the second in a series of 18 articles by Dr. Morris Fishbein, dealing with cancer, its effect on the body and how it may be treated. (No. 323) There is no established instance on record in which a cancer disappeared by itself, they seem to shink, they may even seem to disappear from some single point in the body. Soorier or later, however, the cancer appears elsewhere unless the original growth is completely eliminated he- bore there has been any opportunity to spread. As proof of the fact that a cancer is an overgrowth of tissue of the body, it should be recognized that a cancel in any part of the body resembles the tissues in which it occurs. A canver of the stomach has tissue like that of the stomach. Cancer of the uterus or womb has tissue like that of the uterus. Cancers of the thyroid, the adrenal or the sex ghnds of the body have cells just like those of the glands in which they grow. When a cancer grows in the body, the body tissues naturally become seriously damaged. If a cancer involves tissues of the brain, it will destroy the tissue of the brain so that the patient is unable to walk or move bis arms or attend to any of the other functions which are governed by the part of the brain involved in the cancer. Cancer involving the bowels may block, the passage of food or it get into a blood vessel so that there is bleeding. The cancer tissue may rieiay because it is notwell supplied with blood. Then germs attack the tissue and there may be serious infection. Cancer involving the lungs, or the heart or any other vital tissue will bring about death through interference wiht the action in that organ or tissue. Cancer is truly a fearsome disease. Every one ought to know about the disease and its manifestations in order that he may take measures for pre- veneion, early diagnosis and treatment when the disease affects someone in his family. TBe^itFermgHanJ By Olive Roberts Barton Nursery Despots Enslave Doting Mothers There is no tyranny like that of chil- ren. It is natural, because all of us re despots by inheritance. Who is oble enough to do anything that oth- rs can do for him better than he can o it himself? Day after day, from the time a baby born, he is conditioned to expect- ncy. He discovers very early that lost of his wants are supplied by his lother. "As time goes on, his demands increase because there is more than physical need to be met. He wants this and he must have that. He has to exercise and play but he wants it mostly done in his own way. The mother, without realizing- the fact, becomes a subject taxed beyond reason. Naturally her interest and love prevent her from taking a long- distance view, and she proceeds along her way, blind to what may be ahead of her. The day will come, in all probability, when she feels that her child is old enough to let go a little and give her a rest, but unless she provides for this relief as time goes on, no such miracle is going to happen. It is not the child's fault if at six, or eight, or ten, he continues to think that his mother is there entirely for his comfort and pleasure. Or that he resents any time she takes away from home. There are youngsters, you know, who fuss and carry on if mother goes out, even though they themselves will be away at the same time. They want to know she is there in case they need her. I have seen young children bgein to devil their mother when she sat down to read. She may sew, or wash or cook without any displeasure on their part. But let her read, take a nap or talk to a neighbor and the fun begins. The OUT' THE NIGHT Copyright »937, NEA ; Inc. NEXT: Is cancer increasing? Born Housewife Then there was that five-year-old girl in Cleveland who overheard a neighborhood woman tell her mother that the stork had just brought a baby to the Joneses. ''It weighs seven pounds," she concluded. "How much was it a pound?" asked the little girl gravely.—Buffalo Evening News. Thomas Edison placed on the market the first commercial model of the phonograph in 1888. Within a few years, phonographs and records were sweeping the country.

She hesi- ated, nevertheless. Perhaps it •ould be better if she waited until \e spoke to Jim. She could ask im to do it for her. That would e easier. In the meantime she phoned her wn offices and left word that she •ould be a little late. There were le arrangements for Amy's fu- eral. Aunt Harriet would prob- bly attend to that as soon as she rrived. But neither of them could o anything until they saw the olice again. The police had ^rny's body. The doctor was gong to examine it thoroughly this norning. She went into the kitchen and mechanically set about making offee. Amy had been murdered, nd the whole world was in a :ate of contusion, but neverthe- ess you made coffee. No matter hat happened, you always made offee the first thing every morn- ug. While it was perking, she went nto the bedroom to dress. Ser- eant Dolan would certainly visit er again, as soon as Mrs. Corbett poke to him. He would probably e quite different this morning, nore exacting in his questions, more demanding in his tone. For this morning it was a case of murder. "I'd better be ready for him," Cilly thought. She was a little frightened, and she wondered why. Surely she wanted to help the police discover the fiend who had tossed Amy over the roof. The only thing to fear was that he might not be apprehended . . . that he might be left to commit another crime. She hoped the coffee would clear her mind so that not even the slightest detail of last night's happenings would escape her. From her closet she took the black crepe, with the point Venice collar. It made her look very young and schoolgirlish. You wouldn't have guessed that she was 27, and that she had finished law school and been admitted to the bar two years ago. She went out into the dinette and poured herself a cup of coffee. She drank it down black, without sugar. Then she poured a second cup. * * * OUTSIDE in the hall, she heard Jerry, the porter, talking to someone. The postman, probably. They had something to talk about today beside the weather. "Hear you had an accident here last night?" That was the postman. "Yeh. Young lady"—Jerry hesitated, and Cilly could picture him pointing to their apartment— "jumped off the roof. Suicide. Pretty tough. She was a nice girl." Their voices dropped to a murmur, and Cilly knew they were drawing their own conclusions of the case. What would they have to say tomorrow and the next day, when they knew that a girl had been deliberately murdered in this house? In a few minutes they stopped and Jerry wandered off to another task. Cilly could hear the postman mumbling to himself as he sorted the different pieces of mail and put them into their respective boxes. After he left, she went into the living room to get her mailbox key out of the desk. There might be a letter from her sister in Boston. She ran down the half dozen steps to the vestibule and opened the mailbox. No letter today. Just a few bills and circulars and a postcard. She locked the box and took them back with her. In the kitchen she looked them over. A postcard— A postcard from Jim! Quickly she turned it over and read the message: "Ciily darling— 1 find I must leave immediately for Utah. Won't be <jane long. Taking the first plane I can make. Love. Jim." Cilly stared at the words in amazement. Jim going to Utah! For what? Not on business, she knew that. His territory covered New York and New England. She'd never heard him mention Utah. He hadn't said a word about it last night. She turned the card over and looked at the postmark. H hud been mailed in this very district —probably from the drug store up near the subway station. What did it mean? Sometime after he left her lust night and before he reached the subway—three short blocks away —he learned that he had to leave immediately for Utah, wnere cno. he learn it? And why was Amy clutching a clipping from a Utah newspaper in her hand as she was thrown from the roof? What was the connection between Amy's death and Jim's hurried trip to Utah? * * * THHE -words on the card blurred -*• as Cilly continued to stare at them; her hand shook. Cold chills ran up and down her spine. She remembered her own impression that Amy had gone up on the roof to meet someone. It just couldn't be- Why had she been so insistent on Mrs. Corbett's seeing the police? She had deliberately set a trap—a trap for Jim to walk into blindly. What would she say to Sergeant Dolan now? Would she still tell him every little detail of last night's happenings? She knew that she wouldn't. She knew that she'd never say a word about the clipping she found in Amy's hand, nor this postcard that had come from Jim. Where had she thrown that clipping? What had she done with it last night when her mind was in such a befuddled state? Hastily she searched the kitchen. But there was no sign of a clipping. She went into the bedroom. It wasn't on her bureau nor on the tiny end table between the beds. It wasn't anywhere. If only her heart wouldn't pound so wildly; if only she could be calm and sane for one moment. . . . And then, loud and sharp, echoing through the apartment like a solemn funereal warning, the doorbell rang. Sergeant Dolan! For one terrified moment, Cilly stood motionless. No time now to look for the incriminating clipping. No time even to burn this postcard from Jim. She thrust it hurriedly beneath her pillow and threw the blankets carelessly over it. As she walked through the kitchen toward the door, she stopped for a drink of water. Her mouth was so hot and dry that she would scarcely be able to murmur "Good morning." Her legal training told her that she was drjing wrong in withholding evidence from the police. But her heart insisted that she give Jim an opportunity to explain before the police inspectors could misconstrue the coincidence. She opened the door. It was Sergeant Dolan. (To Be Continued) reason is clear. 'When her mind is absorbed by something that diverts attention entirely away from them, they cannot bear it. Her rights are decidedly limited, to their thinking, nml their first impulse is to interrupt by one means or another. I have watched a tired mother with a handful of little tykes after her every minute of the day for something. If it wasn't this it was thnt. She had to settle all disputes, which were frequent, becavise these rather deliberately-manufactured spats gave an excuse for mother's attention. Darling little despots they were, and cute enough to blind any but the keenest to their method. Now is the time that she should take measures for the future, and so I told her. She thinks that time will help and that later they will take bteter care of themselves. So they will, in a way, nnd gradually their interests will sail nway from home. She will not be so necessary to their immediate wants, anil subconsciously she dreads the clay. But, other things will result. The habit of thinking, once set, is hard to break. "Mother" too often means only a depot of service. The small child who is made to understand that his mother's wants are as important as his, and her rights on a par with his own, will grow in consideration and responsibility. By Bruce Catton Building an Empire in (lie Arctic Ice. You label the whole affair preposterous at first, this story of a new Soviet empire within the Arctic Circle, and then you journey with British newspaperman H. P. Smolka deep into the bleak northlancl and see for yourself. When .you come out finally you do so with reluctance, for "40,000 Against the Arctic" (Morrow, ?3.50) certainly is one of the year's great pieces of reporting. Mr. Smolka himself was frankly dubious in 1935 when he first interviewed Russia's Arctic Hero No. 1, Prof. Otto Schmidt, in London. Professor Schmjdt challenged the author to come and inspect this beginning of a new world in and beyond northernmost Siberia. Mr. Smolka went, and this is his story: The Russians are forging a new country out of Arctic Siberia. Steamships are plying the polar sea from Murmansk to Vladivostok; Russian airplanes are exploring vast uncharted areas and Russian men and women are colonizing the land. Up there the Soviets visualize a new empire, rich in timber and minerals. To date some 40,000 "pioneers" have ;one in, fighting snow and cold and privation to lay the foundations for the tomorrow. But there are good times too. Chess games are played by radio, ther are restaurants, movie louses, recreation halls. Like Mr. Smolka, you get fed up a t at times with the incessant brag- ?ing of these modern pioneers, who 'laugh" at flying the Arctic, but you realize too that these folks are writ- ng an important chapter in world affairs.—P.

Thii is good news for ex- erybody, including the leading man, Jon Hall, who now can get a haircut. For three months, Mr. Hall has been dodging barbers. He is a handsome young man and his bare shoulders are as broad as those of other Holly woodsman wearing pnd- ded sports jackets. All that he has I worn for 14 weeks have been a sarong, a coat of tan and his unshorn locks. Women literally have been getting in his hair—they like to run their hands through it. He thought about concealing a mouse trap in his tresses but dismissed the idea when somebody reminded him how embarrassing it would be if he caught a mouse. Absolutely No Risk Hall has had a very jolly time in this picture because he is part Tahitian and therefore aquatic. One of his nicest chores was to plunge from the mast of a schooner and kiss Dorothy Lamour under water. Miss Lamour's husband is a band leader and not a deep-sea diver. Aiso Hall dived from a 75-foot cliff | into the ocean. They wanted him to use a double on this one, but he said Pattern BY CAROL DAY IF you are looking for a bread- and-buttcr costume, one lluit will be your perfect stand-by all through the season—here is your answer—Pattern 8915 with skirt and blouse.

Aft diving, he had to swim across a lagoi while two pursuers on the cliff too] pot shots at him with high-powerc< rifles. Night before the scene was to shot, Hollywood's professional marks|3 men, Duke Lee and Partner staggered into the cafe where Hall dining. They seemed to be very drun Lee kept complaining that his ey were going back on him. Jones said that he wasn't worrie because as long as he could shoot ii|tS pink elephants it was a chinch he'd% never hit an actor. If Of course this was all a rib, but Hallg: had some pretty bad moments whilef; he was swimming the lagoon next?, day, with steel-jacket bullets smack-1 ing the water within a foot of hia| head. • There was one thing that Hall \ wouldn't do, and it seemed the < simplest stunt of all. He was supposed to fight a shark—but it would be a harm- < less opponent, freshly killed. Troubles- v/.ii that the r'ead shark attracted « lot of lives ones, and they were nor mourners, either, but banqueters. Hall turned in his dagger and said he didn't feel quite up to playing the role of an hors d'oeuvre. Grinding Out Scrap If you ever wondered what happenjjj to waste movie film, Lloyd Nossle^ can tell you. Nossler, head of Goldt wyn's cutting department, knows all about waste film because a million feet have been shot on "Hurricane"' and only about 10,000 feet can be re- t tained in the final cutting of the pic-* ture. l ' Raw black-and-white film costs., about 4% cents a foot, with a charge of 2% cents a foot for developing and \ printing. So a million feet' runs into \ quite a lot of money. t, But that doesn't mean that 990,000 f feet of film have been completely ' wasted. iScrip film is sold at a good } price to Horn, Jefferys & Co., only out- • fit on the coast which thrives on di- I; rci tors' mistakes. Tlu-y put the f'linj' through a hot-water and chemical;* bath to remove the emulsion, which'?: contains silver. ':•. But the silver is only a by-product . of the reclamation business. Most valuable is the film itself, which is treated with solvent and becomes a clear,^ sirupy liquid. This is used in the manufacture of lacquers, airplane fabric filler; imitation leather, mending, elements, wall paper coatings and plastics. You probably own several articles which, in other form, once were ground* through Hollywood cameras. All the studios together waste or discard about 50 tons of film a month, or 20,000,000 feet. Baby Chick Shipments Are to Be Regulated WASHINGTON—(#)—The postoffice department is all hot arid bothered over the C.O.D. clay-old-live-chick t business. For some unexplained reason some shippers of that chirping commodity have been sending cargoes to fictitious addresses and persons who have not ordered them. All postal officials can do in such a * case is feed the chicks and talk to themselves. So from now on, a shipper of day-old live chicks will have to prove there's going to be a guardian at the other end of the line. Use A Hope Star Want Ad For Better Results
