Nation Holds Remedy for Its .Own Ailments T HE vacation touring season is about over now, and some 40,000,000 Americans are back home again after having had a more or less extended look at their country. If they used their eyes and their brains while touring they ought'to be in shape to think intelligently about some of the problems the country faces. If there is one thing that impresses itself on a thoughtful tourist in this country, it is that the United States is an everlastingly big and an unimaginably rich country. That impression doesn't hit you at first. It grows, little fey little, as you go on traveling. XXX Y OU ride through the farm belt—any one of the numerous farm belts—and you see vista after vista of fat green farm lands with bumper crops growing out of rich soil, with well- kept farm houses and big barns, with pleasant villages ^and neat, up-to-date cities. . The people you meet are intelligent, friendly, hardworking, decent—the kind we used to call the salt of the earth. And you casually sum up your impression by remarking, M ice country and nice people around here." ' And then, if you stop to think about it, you suddenly realize that it's all like that—mile upon mile of it. from the Berkshires to the Cascades and beyond, from the Minnesota lakes to the Gulf of Mexico; and endless series of fair horizons, rich farm land interspersed with tremendously busy industrial regions, the whole of it peopled by some of the finest folk who ever drew the breath of life. • Oh there are ba're spots, of course. We have our shaie of deserts where nothing will grow; of blighted cut-over areas that ought to be growing trees, of agricultural country that isn't quite fertile enough to give its people a decent living, ot toxvns whose industries have gone to pot. But in the main, the picture shows a country that stood right at the head of the line when the good things were being passed out. XXX T HIS picture is worth looking at. For if the human race ever got itself into a spot where the continued well-being of all the people ought to be assured, the United States of America is that »pot. Its soil will grow enough food to feed halt the world ltd mines will provide an infinity, of raw materials, i it has abundant factories to handle them^and it is peopled by a smart, active and kindly race. . What' can go wrong—permanently wrong—m a setup like that ? If we exercise only a little intelligence and ordinary hotse sense we ought to be able to keep this country of ours smiling and happy right up to the day of judgment. Whatever may be wrong with things today, it certainly is nothing that can't be cured if we are willing to think things out and use a fair amount of forethought. Production Rivalry T HE newspapers recently printed a picture of a huge six- motored flying boat with which France is about to begin trans-Atlantic survey flights, and the captions remarked that the French were at last entering the "rivalry" for transoceanic air service. It occurs to us that this is one form of international rivalry which is all to the good. In a day when most international rivalry finds expression in new cruisers high- speed tanks, superlbombing planes and motorized infantry division^, it is extremely comforting to see nations competing in straight-out commercial service. Quicker communications, the speedier transport of goods and people, the conquering of the space which separates nations—these are things the world needs in everincreasing quantities. The more competition we have in that field, the better off we all ought to be. The Co-operative Spirit a Day By Brucft Catton View of English Medical Practices. 'Dr. A. J. Cronin's Intest novel "Citadel" (Little, Brown & Co.: ?2.50) may lot be entirely 1 autobiographical, but ho London physician certainly drew his own history for much of the Citadel" is the storp of a Scotch loctor who begins practice in Wales, ights the superstitions and Ignorance >f the miners, gets a government post uid gives it up in disgust, goes to Lon- lon on impulse and gradually evolves nto a fashionable London practitioner. A check on Dr. Cronin's life reveals that he was born in Scotland and spent much of his early career in South Wales, later building a successful practice in London. It also tells that prior to his novels, Dr. Crcmin never had written anything but a "History of Aneurism" and ','Dust Inhalation by Haematite Minlers." Dr. Cronin's novel counterpart interests himself in the dust inhalation field and one of the books most interesting incidents deals with aneurism. Dr. Cronin's book does much more than touch the surface of medical practice in England. He flails away at some o£ its narrowness and intolerance and he constructs the novel's doctor slowly and surely, carries him along through broken ideals and impaled illusions. The character changes from a sin*. cere medical pioneer to a greedy charlatan— up to the moment he sees a fellow "social doctor" butcher a patient from pure lack of medical skill. Then he reverts and the reversion is the strongest part of the book, barring perhaps some of the early material and mental struggles. The book is medical, maybe too medical for some readers. But it also has plot, strong characterization and a high rate of reader nterest.— C. N.

Another tiling is his reputation. The boy or girl doesn't live who does not wish to be well thought of by his friends. It puts them on their toes, and keeps them in line, to have to meet a daily demand for fairness and kindness. It takes more than innate nobility at times to keep up to the level o! good fellowship, so it is a better work There are fears that are good for a child. While it is cruel to frighten him with threats and fantastic stories, at the same time every child should have enoukh normal fear to evade certain results. He has toJearn, of course, that a car will kill him if he gets in the way, and that fire will burn him if he meddles fears that are just a shealthy for him to hold as physical ones. One is fear of failure. We are apt to put too high a standard at times for the child to reach, and this is destructive to his happiness, but it • is well to set a reasonable standard for him to achieve, and put him on..,his mettle to meet it. This is why lessons are valuable.

While Cancer Itself Is Not Inherited, the Tendency May Run in Families - This is the sixth in a series of articles on cancer in which Dr.. | Morris Fishbein discusses causes, methods of prevention and cure of the disease. (No. 327) There are certain factors associated with the production of cancer which indicate ways of prevention. For years it has been noted that cancer seems to run in families. Certain unusual types of cancer seem quite definitely to be inherited. One family had 10 out of 16 children who developed a certain unusual form of tumor of the retina—the tissue at the back of the eye. Studies were made of 38 instances in which twins have been involved by tumors. In 36 cases, both members of the twins had tumors. Those of each couple were in general of the same type, affected the same organ and appeared at approximately the same time. However, there is encouragement in the fact that cancer tends ot breed out of the race. Moreover, in human beings the question of heredity is not one that can be easily controlled. In general, it is safe to say that the cancer itself is not inherited, but that the liability or susceptibility to cancer may be inherited in certain conditions Two people may marry, both of whom have a susceptibility to cancer of the stomach. In such cases obviously, their children will inherit the kind ot a stomach which is hkely to be susceptible. ... There are, however, many families m which both parents have had the same Dolan flml* a note, 'M writing. iiskinB Amy to meet him up on the root nf««r the lirldge RIIIIIC the nlRlit of the murder.

I've had him checking up on the tenants." Cilly opened the door for him. "Come , "What did you find out?" Martin consulted some notes he had made. "Well, there are 10 apartments In the house. Two to a floor. Johnson, the superintendent, has a place down in the basement. Miss Pierce and the other young lady here in 1-A. Couple named "Check up on that," Dolan instructed. "I'll do that. Now we come to the third floor. Don't think we'll find anything there. On the. fourth floor," Martin went on in his steady, phlegmatic voice, "in 4-A, there are the Downeys. A mother and daughter. Mother's a woman in her 60s, I should school. — look of her, never could pick up a body and throw it off the roof," "No," Dolan agreed, it wasn't the work of a woman." "A Mrs. Wheeler lives in 4-B. Lives there alone, she tells me, and Johnson confirms it. Smart- looking woman, in her 30s, I'd A widow. Has a young niece say.

Insurance companies have, of course, been particularly concerned with this question of inheritance of cancer. The evidence has not thus far been sufficient to cause any insurance company to refuse insurance because one of. the members of the family died of cancer or to ask an increased premium because someone in the ancestry had naccer. There are, moreover, other facts which are interest in this connection. Negroes suffer but little with cancer of the skin in comparison with white people. However, negro women have more frequently a cancer of the uterus than do white women. English women suffer more frequently with cancer of the breast in comparison to Dutch women who have more cancer of the uterus or womb.

Two-Plier Man Goes on a Big Fence Jag COLORADO SPRINGS.-^)—If it were still the day of open range feuds, authorities could understand it but now that cattle battles are history they can't decide why someone made 1.000 cuts in the N. L. Powers ranch fence. The wire-cutting enthusiast tackled a three strand barbed wire feuce and cut every strand between all the posts in a stretch of fence a mile long. Terry in 1-B. Johns&n tells me they left the house about 11 o'clock on Sunday night. He met them going out the door with their bags. Said they were going away on a little motor trip." "That's right," Cilly agreed. "Mrs. Terry stopped in shortly after 10 and asked me if I'd take her gold-fish for a few days. There they are, over on the window-sill. They were going up to Fall River to visit Mrs. Terry's mother. "Funny hour to be leaving, wasn't it?" "Mr. Terry preferred to drive all night. There would be less traffic on the roads, he said." "Well, that takes care of the first floor," Dolan said. "Who s upstairs?" * * • «TN 2-A there's a Mrs. Elliot 1 Rather an elderly woman Johnson says. But she's not m Johnson and I looked the place over and it doesn't appear as if she's been home lor a while Rooms are all tidied up, windows shut down tight. Johnson say she's away a great deal. She s the last tenant that moved in "Now in 2-B, there's a family named Smith. Man and wife an 6-year-old youngster. Mrs. Smith tells me they were over in Jersej on Sunday visiting her in-laws They left the youngster over ther (or a week. She says they didn get home until somewhere abou 3 in the morning. Didn't know thing about the trouble ]»ere i the house. They took a 1:»0 tvai from Rutherford." S ERGEANT DOLAN shook his head negatively as he listened without comment to Martin's report. Cilly could almost read his thoughts. One by one, he too was dismissing the tenants from consideration. In his hand he still eld the crumpled note Jim had Bitten to Amy. "On the fourth floor, there's no- jody we can pin the case on," Martin was saying, "and I'd say ve could check off the fifth floor oo. In 5-A there's a man and is Wife named Hunter, a mid- 6VV7HAT about the other vacant •" apartment?" Cilly asked lim. "The one on the third floor?" "We found it locked," Martin said. "Johnson is the only one that has a passkey to it." : Someone might have come down the five escape," Cilly suggested. "He could have passed 5-B, which is vacant, and 4-B, without awakening Mrs. Wheeler, and climbed into 3-B." Martin shook his head negatively. "The window from the fire escape was latched. He couldn't have opened it from the outside without breaking a pane of glass. Besides, i'vom what I hear, before the young woman fell, there was a scream—loud enough to awaken the neigr#«-hood. It awakened Mrs. Wheeler. If any man passed down the fire escape, she would have known it." Cilly wondered where else a man might have hidden. Nobody came out of the house immediately after the accident, Cilly knew that. * # * SUDDENLY a new light dawned ^ on the problem, and for the first time the strands of the ter- •ible web of circumstances and coincidence which was encircling her loosened their hold. Jim must have come down from the roof before Amy fell: if he die-aged couple. But he's a help- ess cripple, paralyzed from the A'aist down. Sits around all day n a wheel chair. Johnson says he's never been out of the chair n the lour years they've lived here." 'That let's him out," Dolan commented. "What about 5-B?" "Vacant." "Let's get going, Martin," he said. "We still have several other angles to check." Cilly rose too. "Just a minute, sergeant," she pleaded, "what about those vacant apartments? Anybody—a vagrant, for example —might have hidden away in them." Dolan turned to his assistant. "What about it, Martin?" "We thought of that, Serg. Johnson showed me 5-B. In the first place, the door was locked, and he has the only two keys to it. In the second place, he's getting it ready for some new tenant moving in on the first, and Saturday the floors were scraped and shellaced. Anyone coining down from the roof—which is covered with tar and soot and dust would have left some tracks on that newly polished floor. There's not a sign of a loot-print." had come down after the accident, Cilly would have seen him go out the front entrance. Or the police would have found him, still on the roof. Jim couldn't have been you! At once There are Positively-No-Admittance notices on the doors of the big stage where Albertina Rasch is rehearsing the dancers for "Rosalie," but these are merely detour signs for sightseers. If you knock politely you will be admitted and taken right up on the reviewing stand from which Miss Rasch ous busii directs the proceedings. of idiots. Once a distinguished ballerina in her own right, Miss Rasch now is content o leave the exertion and the dieting to others. She is the only woman dance lirector in Hollywood, and also the most exacting. She bullies and cajoles and ribs her people, and gets what she wants. She rounds with her megaphone and yells 'No good! No good! No good!" Right now she is building a number, which is to be performed on the largest and most costly set ever built (the superlatives are hers). Anyway, it done a cer tain will cost a quarter of a million dollars, of the picture, which certainly isn't hay. And 320 dancers will perform in a sort of adagio-ballet. ,She likes speed and plenty of action. She shouts, "No good! Try again! U>uis, you big Irisher, do not handle that girl like she is glass. Louise, some more pep from you. All of you r-more pep! What is the matter to-. day—too much lunch? Mapbe I should not let you go to lunch. Now try again!" This Dance Floored 'Em On a nearby stage another dance number is about to be filmed. Before 50 vacant chairs arranged in a semicircle are 50 pairs of high shoes, also vacant. After lunch, though, the shoes are filled by chorus-boy cadets. They never move their feet because the shoes are nailed down. Eleanor Powell dances and the firmly-anchored cadets merely sway from side to side, far off balance. "Wasted" Scream In "City Hall Scandal," Gwen Seager is playing the role of a beautiful blond corpse. This is considered a very unlucky thing to do, and some screen people are so superstitious about it that thep insist on a double under such circumstances. Miss Seager, though, doesn't realize just how unlucky such a part may be until the camera starts rolling and one of the live tcaors steps on her outstretched hand. She bounds up with a shriek that wrecks the tubes in the sound-recording machine. Director Ralph Murphy doesn't mind the shot being spoiled, but he's sorry that such a realistic scream wasn't successfully recorded for the sound-effects library. In "Thrill of a Lifetime," .Judy Can- va and Ben Blue are lumbering and everyone's nerves are worn to a frazzle. Momentarily I expect to be kicked off the set while Miss Canova and Mr. Blue, the latter in droopy pink tights, proceed without spectators on the serious business of acting like a couple f idiots. They toss their balloons into the air, whirl and catch them—all to the ham- my strain of "Humoresque." Sounds simple, but their trouble is that the balloons float uncertainlp and throw the dancers out of tempo. Numerous variations are attempted, and usually it is Blue who botches the performance. Meanwhile he argues with the direc- or, and George Archainbaud is exasperated to the point of telling the comic that the scene either will be done a certain way or will be cut out f the picture. Again, Blue says impatiently to Vliss Canova: "That isn't the way I rehearsed YOU, TOO MISTER. the temperature drops to sub-zero. Miss Canova is billed above Blue on this picture, and she isn't taking instructions from him. She says: "You're mistaken. That's the way TS rehearsed." I don't know whether they ever did get the scene. 'But I do know that it wasn't worth the trouble. Hold everything until you've read "HOLD EVERYTHING!" By Clyde Lewis . . . then let yourself go! It's n great, new "laugh comic panel coming Monday, Sept. 27 in HOPE STAR Edible Fruit up there when it happened! She almost wept for sheer relief. There was a new ring of confidence in her voice as she turned to Sergeant Dolan: "Mr. Kerrigan couldn't have been up on the roof with Amy," :he pointed out with conviction. 'Because he couldn't have gotten out of the house after the accident without aJl of us seeing him. And ie wasn't on the roof, or you would have seen him when you went up! That clears him, in spite of the note, doesn't it'.'" Sergeant Dolan grinned. "I'd be a line detective," he said, "it I were as trusting a soul as you'd like me to be, Miss Pierce. How can I be sure that he didn't come downstairs and slip into Apartment 1-A, where a young lady who believed him to be 100 per cent O. K. could easily hide him until the rumpus died down!" Cilly gasped. The strands of the web had only relaxed momentarily, to strengthen themselves for a move tenacious grip. (To Ke Continued) (.tolerance. Yet, more lax habits can be acquired in the too-easy-going home than almost anywhere else. The child may be jealous of his reputation \vilh teacher and cronies, but feel entitled to act as he pleases with his mother. Bill may be a good bop because he loves his parents so much, but he is more than likely not to be such an angel because he knows they love him just us much, and will forgive anything he does. Bill is a boy, and human, and the chances are that if allowed, he will follow the lines of least re- Mj-T.mce- and let down at home. He has no fears. Therefore he won't jack liiiu-sulf up to doing the things he ought to do. If the boy were as anxious to please his mother us he is his teacher, or his team captain, he would feel certain fear:; of her. Not be afraid of her, for there is a diference. He should admire her to a point of dreading to cause her disappointment. He should be afraid of losing her faith and trust. And the. boy admires more the mother who in- tists on his co-operation than the one who humors him too much. Let us not call it fear, but merely a healthy respect for a pal's opinion.
