Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor — Alex, H, Washburn—— Fear—But It Pastes H OPE churches are advised today by Dr. P, B. Carrigan, city health officer, thnt Sunday school classes may be held as usual this week-end. The public schools, which suspended last Tuesday noon as a precautionary move following the announcement of one case of infantile paralysis in the city, will reopen Monday morning. So little is definitely known about the nature of acute poliomyelitis (Infantile paralysis), and sd great is the public's fear when a case is reported, thatUhis may be a good time to publish as many of the facl*as are really known—and they happen to be somewhat reassuring. Writing in the September issue of the Tri-State Medical Journal (Shreveport), Dr. S. George Wolfe of Shreveport makes the following statement^ .. quoted in excerpts: "~ •-.— -.. »._,..— «. ~*,-~., , . (JJ Black Admits He Once Joined Klan But Later Quit It Supreme Court Justice Defends Tolerance Record in Radio Speech BREAKS PRECEDENT Js First Supreme Court Judge to Speak Directly to People WASHINGTON.—</!')—Associate Justice Hugo L. Block told the nation Friday night that he once joined the Ku Klux Klan but later resigned. On thnt account, he said an effort is being made to "convince the people of America that 1 am intolerant, and that I am prejudiced against people of the Jewish and Catholic faiths and against members of the negro race." The principal attack of recent weeks on Black's appointment to the court had been based on the assertion made in a scries of newspaper articles that he held a life membership in the pd order. • 'Black's address, without precedent was delivered from the home of his close friend Claude Hamilton, Jr., un assistant general lawyer for the RFC Before the address ho and Mrs. Black dined with the Hamilton's and then proceeded to the living room, where furniture and rugs had been shove: i, aside to make room for elaborate ' broadcasting equipment. SCCH Peril to Constitution The text o( his address follows: The constitution is the supreme law of our country. The bill of rights i ... the heart of tho constitution. The eon atitutional safeguard to complete lib crty of religious belief is a declara tion of the greatest importance to th future of America as a nation of frc people. Any movement or action b; any group that threatens to brin about a result inconsistent with this unrestricted individual right is a menace to freedom. Let me repeat: Any program, even if directed by good intention, which tends to breed or revive religious discord or antagonism, can and may spread with such rapidity as to imperil this vital constitutional protection of one of the most sacred of human rights. 1 believe that no ordinary maneuver executed for political advantage would justify » member of the Supreme Court in publicly discussing it. If, however, thnt maneuver threatens the existing peace and harmony between religious or racial groups in our country, the occasion is not an ordinary one. It is extraordinary. Campaign Charged ' During my recent absence on a short vacalion abroad, a planned and concerted campaign wns begun which fans the flames of prejudice and is calculated to create racial and religious hatred. If continued, the inevitable result will be the projection of religious beliefs into a position of prime im- Tho subject of poliomyelitis is one of fireat complexity, in spite of the fact that most of us upon hearing Dial term immediately think of a closely knit syndrome, occurring in children, ushered in by fever and acute Illness, accompanied by a stiff back, and followed by paralysis in three to seven days. Tho spinal fluid shows 50 to 100 cells with a slight increase in globulin. Until nround a decade ngo, such n description would have been n fairly adequate one for the condition known as infantile paralysis. Since then, however, due to the accumulation of much information, particularly on virus diseases, we have had to revamp our ideas considerably. It is probably incorrect now even to refer to the disease us paralysis since that end occurs in only 25 per cent or so of the cases. This percentage, of course, varying with epidemics. . . . Two predisposing factors, age and .season, arc of considerable influence in this disease. Those between the ages of one nnd five arc most frequently affected, although in some epidemics an unusually high incidence of the disease is found in adults. As to season, 90 per cent of all cases occur in Uie months of July, August, and September. . . . Poliomyelitis is becoming more frequent in the world nt large for some undiscovcrablc cause. There are ninny-; vexing problems connected with the spread of the disca.se. It occurs in epidemic form, characteristically, but endemic cases are present the world over. There is much evidence to show that droplet infection from direct or indirect contacts is the method of propagation, yet the disease rarely occurs in rnorfe than one member of the family. Moreover, in large contagious disease hospitals it is rare for attendants to contract the disease. Indeed. Toomey, for many a -Uicfl* contagious, not remember a single instance of the disease among nurses and doctors working with these patients. An interesting fact, too, is the larger number of cases proportionately, in rural sections, where one would suspect less contact among the population than in urban sections. The attack rate in an average epidemic is about one in six thousand. . . , Because of ... the facl that only 25 per cent or so of patients develop paralysis, one frequently encounters great difficulty in the diagnosis of poliomyelitis. That this is true is very well shown in the recent report of an epidemic during which there were 800 cases admitted to the hospital with the diagnosis of ]K>liomyelitis. In only 56 per cent of the cases was Die diagnosis sustained. In the 46 per cent of cases erroneously ding- nosed there were 76 different diseases encountered. portuncc in political campaigns and to reinfect our social and business life with the poison of religious bigotry It will bring the political religionist back into undeserved and perilous influence in affairs of government.

The Bulsigh News and Observ sinackover's Running and Passing Attack Is Led by McHaney By LEONARD ELLIS Grinning Vasco Bright "went lo own" again Friday night to play the icro role in Hope High School's 20-to- victory over the Smnckover High Scliool football team before approximately 2,500 fans at Mammons' Stadium. Besides shouldering the brunt of the Bobcat offense, Bright played a nice defensive game. He reeled off a Gl- yard uprint through the Buckaroo team to score Hope's first touchdown in the opening quarter and curly in the final period broke through the line for a 40-yarri touchdown run. A few minutes later, after the ball was advanced to the 15-yard line, Bright fired a puss to Percy Ramsey, Hope left end, for the third touchdown of the game. Woodrow Parsons kicked and ran to score Hope's two extra points after touchdown. Smnckover Has Tower The Buckaroos presented a scrapping saluring .tylpHano-y,,.

Except for Hope's score early in the first period, the Buckaroos fought tlie Bobcats about on even terms the remainder of the opening quarter and irouRhout the second period. About middle of the third period the obciits began to wear down their op- onents. paving the way for two juchdowns in the final quarter.

ICopyrif-.hl, 1937, NEA Service Jnr.,i German Boy Can Go Far If He|s a Nazi But the Lad Has to Sink Own Personality Beneath That of State No Social Credit, 'Utopia' Fading in Canadian Province Political Rebellion Faces Premier Aberhart in State of Alberta HIS PROMISES FAIL Payment of "Social Dividends" to Everybody Never Is Begun By NEA Service CALGARY, ','Alta.—For more than two years the world's first Social Credit government has been in power in Alberta. But Social Crcdil is yet to come, and in some respects it seems farther from realization than it did back in August 1935 when William Aberhart was swept into tho premiership at the head of the largest party group ever to sit in the provincial legislature, 56 out of 63 seats. The promise that led Alberta farmers to put Aberhart in office was the one put forth by Major Clifford H Douglas, Scotch economist, who envisions a regular "social dividend" to every citizen—in cash to boost purchasing power—and a government-fixed "just price" for goods at retail The government is to make good lo the storekeeper and the difference between that "just price" and the real cost. Aberhart, the evangelist, teacher, ariti radio.jspeaj^er,,.#ras eleqted to put such a program into effect. Not to Effect Yet Today, more than two years later, it is not in effect, and there is a rising reaction against the Aberhart administration, partly because of his failure to fulfill the campaign promise, partly because improved crop conditions in many parts of the province are tending to wean many farmers from the Social Credit idea. The People's League, a new organization rapidly expanding throughout Alberta, now claims 50,000 anti-Aberhart and anti-Social Credit members. The league's first public rally at Calgary drew 8500 people by actual count. They demanded Abcrhart's resignation. Efforts are being made to fuse into this movement the Liberal and United Farmer parties, thus presenting a united anti-Aberhart front. A petition for Aberhart's recall is also being circulated in his own constituency of Okotoks-High River, and if it gains the signatures of GG 23 per cent of all electors, Aberhart might find himself out of office as suddenly as he gained it. A "10-Year Plan" But on th§ other hand. Aberhart gives no sign of yielding to this rising pressure. Fifty Social Credit members of the Alberta legislature have signed a "sacred pledge" to back Aberhart and implement the original plan for a Social Credit system, which involved complete control of money and banking in the province. L. B. Byrne, Social Credit expert and associate of Major Douglas, has been given a 10-year contract as commissioner to administer the Social Credit Acl passed last year. The new legislative session just getting under way is the fifth since Aberhart took office.
