Finding Middle Path Is Democracy's Job • SECRETARY OF STATE CORDELL HULL told the Amev- )J ican Legion convention the other day that our goveVn- . inent is trying to follow a middle path between isolation and entanglement in the affairs of other nations. He might well have added that it is an infernally tough job but one which is very much worth doing. For the very essence of democracy, after all, is this al,tempt to find and follow a practical middle path—in foreign policy, and in domestic affairs as well. And what makes "being a democrat so tough is that this middle path grows progressively harder to find as the problems of this modern •world multiply. XXX A GOOD part of the world has fallen into the hands of extremists of late. In one country after another the people have been won over to the idea that there is one plan, and one plan-only, which can help them: and it is getting so that you can hardly pick up your newspaper without reading of some spot where people have been executed, imprisoned or bomber from the sky for daring to disagree. When we say that as Americans and lovers of liberty ' we disagree with such measures, we tell only half of the story. The alternative to rule by one or another set of extremists is the charting of a course half-way between the rival camps. Democracy can survive only by proving that it is possible to find such a course; by proving that men still have enough good sense and good will to compare ideas, to take the best that the rival extremists have to offer, to compromise and harmonize and blend them so that people do not have to be bombed and bludgeoned into obedience. _- , • It isn't easy to do this. It calls for hard, sustained thinking, for critical examination of all slogans and panaceas, for recognition of the often-forgotten fact that there are few * passable short-cuts to the millinnium. It compels men to 'realize that they cannot gain respect for their own rights without respecting the rights of others, and that humaTi nature is so constituted that an enduring social, economic or ^ political system can be erected only on a basis of mutual consent, XXX A LL OP this, to be sure, is perfectly familiar to us, as citizens of the world's oldest democracy. Yet we must remind our_ selves constantly 1 that democracy will continue to work only if we take the trouble to make it work. - " Finding this middle course is unspectacular and tinin- ;- spiring work. It would be a lot easier to resign everything to the hands of some leader and contribute cheers to the goose- stepping storm troopers. But in the end, if our vision of *" America is to survive, we must make a success of this unspectacular and uninspiring job—or see the brightest values of our .national tradition dissolve. A Practical Memorial THIRTY years ago there was a bid interurban wreck at 1 Elyria, 0. Eight people were killed, and some of the deaths were attributed to the city's lack of hospital facilities. Among the victims was the son of an Elyria business ^ man named Edgar F. Allen. Allen bestirred himself to see . that this tragic story be not repeated. He organized the Elyria Memorial Hospital Association, campaigned to raise funds for -• it, gave liberally of his own money, and retired from business to become treasurer and manager of the new hospital which , the association built. In the years since then, this hospital has done a great '-work. And Allen, who died just the other day, left to the [ memory of his dead son a fine and valuable memorial of ' enduring usefulness and beauty. The Family Doctor T, K. Rts. V, 9.

IcJes in which Pr. RJorris Fishbein discysse* cancer, its causes and •_ metlitMlit of prevention and cure. (No. 336) , About half of all the cases of cancer . occur in the stomach. It is the most frequent form of cancer affecting men. tfejct to cancer of the uterus, it is most frequent in women. About 38 per cent of all deaths from cancer are due to cancer of the stomach. Although the average age at which, it occurs is 61 years, cases have . been known to affect people much , younger. Cancer of the stomach is most seri- ' ous simply because it is so difficult to diagnose early and to treat with success. It comes on insidiously. A person who may never previously have • be«n troubled suddenly finds himself distvtrbed by symptoms affecting his stomach. HIS will have lops of appetite, ioss of weight aftfl to* of strength. Due to loss of J?lood from the cancer he may cases, cancer of the stomach blocks the passage of food through the bovyels. II the c^ncgr happens to be \H that part of the stomach called the pylprusrrtbe y«lve through which the fo«i passes from tke stonjach into the . intestinej—thje trouble is prompt and Serious. If it affects some other part of the i^ll oj the stomach, the condition may pass unnoticed until a sudden hemorrhage or ^ discovery of the growth in the stomach. For this reason every person over 40 yesrs old who develops any of these symptoms should consult a doctor promptly and have an X-ray examination. By taking suitable mixtures of milk with various powders, it is possible to obtain a complete outline of the wall of the stomach which will indicate whether or not the stomach is healthy or whether the wall is broken up by the presence of some growth. In the presence of large serious growths, operations may sometimes be done which will cause the food to pass from the stomach to the intestines by another route and in that way to give the patient much more comfort for a long time. Because of the very insidious nature of the beginnings of this disease, few 1 of the cases fij^t seen by the surgeon' areare suitable for operation. Probably less than one person in 20 out of | all of those operated on live for five years after the operation. Parade Of Invisible Men By Olive Roberts Barton Attentiveness Is Quality That Leads to Success 1 ' "That is a smart boy," said Mrs. Brown. "Only five, but he remembers everything you say. He hears you even when he isn't appearing to do so. Remembered all I said to him yesterday, asked about my little dog, Timmy, and all the rest of it. He'll go far." Just how far I might have told her.

Three Obstacles Is it a gift? Is it done by training? Which? I am sure it is nabit,,~and habit is usually acquired by training. Some people may be self trained, discovering somewhere along the line that it is more valuable to listen well than to talk. But knowing the value of early lessons, it is more possible that good listeners have learned to give this close attention in childhood. There are three enemies of attention where the child is concerned. One is his consuming interest in whatever he is donig. He dislikes interruption even more than an adult. Another is his set idea that what other people say to him is not as important as it might be. The third and most potent is his driving interest in his own affairs, his thoughts and his actions. Even though he may appear to be, listening, he is only doing so with the side of his mind, These are not faults. They are the , l?37, NEAS.™,; Inc. ' NEXT: Cancer in other parts of the body. Seme Kick A drift of Missouri mules had just arrived and a new private made the mistake of going too near one. His comrade caught him on the rebound, placed him on a stretcher and started for the hospital. On the way, the injured man regained consciousness. He gazed at the sky overhead and felt the swaying motion of the stretcher. Feebly he lowered his shaky hands over the side, to find only space. "My gosh!" he groaned, "I ain't even hit, the ground yet." CAST OP CHARACTERS TMU.SCILI.A PIRRCE —heroine, yoiine womim utlortiry. .VWY KUHH— i:m r 'H roommiitp nncl murii'TiT'N vie dm.

Tom Corbett swayed as he hung over Cilly. Would he never let her go? She'd been there half an hour, and one by one the lights across the street were going out. If she stayed much longer, there would be nothing to see from the roof. Across the room, Mrs. Corbett Was beginning to nod in her chair. Her words, as she babbled on, were thick, and every few minutes they trailed oft' to a vague nothingness. "No, no more, really!" Cilly insisted. She still sipped the first drink he had made for her. She s'ood up abruptly. She'd made a mistake coming here, all right, but she didn't have to stay. One didn't compromise with drunks. Quickly she walked to the door. Quickly, but not quite fast enough. Sensing her action, Corbett was there first, arms outstretched, clocking the way. "So! You wanna run out on me, eh?" He enfolded her in his enor-> rnous arms. "Oh, no you don't." Cijly struggled to free herself, ! 'Mr. Corbett!" she shouted. Back in the iiving room, his wife opened half an eye. "Whazzat, deary?" she inquired Sleepily. ''Whaju say?" Mr. Corbett let Cilly go. " 'Scuse me," he pleaded. " 'Scuse me. But don't try to go yet. It's early! Lemme fix that drink." # * * /THOROUGHLY annoyed now, •*• Cilly went back to the living room. Here was a nice predica-r ment, she thought. Whatever possessed her to ring the Corbetts' doorbell? She might have waited downstairs until someone from the apartment' came alppg, ajnd, then t-xplain that she'd forgotten her key. She sat down beside Mrs. Corbett. The woman was not going to sleep, not if she could help it. "Mrs.. Corbett," she said, "I wanted to ask you something »bout Sunday night ..." "Sun-nay night? Oh, my Ga^U" She straightened, shuddered. "Don' remin' me. Sunday night. Tom was out west. Tom's always out west. Travelin' man, tha's my Tom." She giggled foolishly now. "Travelin' man. Tom, tell her 'bout that time . . . that time out west . . . tell her, Tom . . . that time you—" "Shut up! Keep your mouth still!" Tom, standing in the kitchen doorway, looked menacingly at his wife, Mrs. Corbett waved her arms in a pathetically dramatic expression of submission, "O. K.," she grinned fatuously, but with condescension, "if you won't tell her, I will. I'll tell about that time you were out west— way, way out west. In ... in ... where was it, darlin'? Where were you that time . . ." In three quick strides her husband was at her side. "Shut up, I told you!" he shouted. "Shut up! You talk too much. Why clon'cha go to bed? Go to bed!" "No! I'm gonna tell . , ." Cilly jumped to her feet. In another second, she could see, Coiv bett might strike his wife. She wanted to escape and now. "Mr. Corbett," she said with determination, "I'm going home, and if you try to stop me, I'm going to screech until every policeman in Brooklyn gets here. And there have been altogether too many policemen around here lately." The man's mouth dropped in sulky displeasure. He slumped into a chair, waved his drink in the air, "Gwan home," he said gruffly. "Who asked you over anyway? Gwun home. Who cares?" * * « /""•ILLY breathed a deep sigh of ^ relief as she closed the Corbett door behind her. What people! And what a curious contradiction Mrs. Corbett was—a mild, nervous little woman one day; coarsely drunk the next. She wondered what the story was that the woman had tried to tell her—the story of Mr. Corbett's experience out west—"way, way out west." An4 why was he so intensely set on not having it told? She unlatched the door to the roof and stepped out. Slowly she closed it behind her, careful lest it slam. She took a deep breath, before she stepped forward toward the edge. Suddenly, as she stood beside the three-foot wall enclosing the roof, she wondered just what she expected to discover. Now that she was here, the whole trip seemed utter folly. Nevertheless, she brought forth the opera glasses and adjusted them to her vision. First, she focused them upon the empty apartment 5-B. This was where she really hoped to find something. A flash of light, perhaps, or the flicker of a candle . , . anything to indicate that someone might be using the apartment as a hideout. But there was nothing. The windows of botii empty apartments — 5-B and 3-B — loomed black and vacant. Down she looked into the living room of 2-B. Mr. and Mrs. Smith sat at opposite ends at the divan, Mr, Smith reading « magazine, Mr?. Smith knitting. Next door, Mrs. Elliot's apartment was dark. The light from a street lamp showed nothing unusual here. Mrs. Elliot was still in Connecticut, visiting her daughter, Above, in 3-A, there wove no lights. That was the Carruthers' apartment; they were in Bermuda. * * * TN 4-A, Cilly saw the Downeyu, mother and daughter, getting ready for bed. Trusting souls,.they did not draw the shades. They appeared to be arguing, but what mother and daughter do not argue? No murder clews in that homely t^iene. Cilly shifted (he glasses to the apartment above, the Hunters'. Here was another intimate bedroom scene, with the shades up, Did nobody pull down the bedroom shades any more? Perhaps it was only necessary for those like her, Cilly thought, who lived on the first floor. Honest people did not consider the 'act that pry* ing neighbors might peei? into their lives through opera glasses. There were twin beds in the Hunter boudoir. Mrs. Hunter turned down one, then she tfi£« appeared into the hallway. Mr. Hunter sat dreamily on the foot of his bed, running his fingers through his hair. Soon his wife returned, placed a thermos jug on the night table between the beds and kissed him goodnight. She climbed into her own bed. Then Mr. Hunter rose, walked over to the hall and disappeared- CiUy stared in wonderment. Mr. Hunter, paralyzed from the waist down, was walking about hir, own bedroom! Eagerly she watched for him to return. In a moment hu was back, walking erect and firm. He crossed the room to a bureau, picked up an alaim clock and wound it. Then once more, he walked over to the doorway and switched off the light. Cilly no more. (To Be Cwituiued) natural tendencies of nil children, flic second, however, discrediting much that ho hears, is our fault. The child who is perpetually himmgcd and tnlk- ed nt, is almost always n poor listener. Teachers have an advantage over parents becnuse In school (he boy or girl is quiet, (n a more or less studious mood and therefore rccptivc. They complain that Jimmy or Betty won't give close attention, but even so they get better attention than parents. Immunity to Sound There is another handicap today's children have iignlnst them. The iiir is full of diverting, noises. The ears become attuned to sound and are compelled to shove it into the subconscious, or the reflex or whatever wo call thnt place that stacks things away in a warehouse to rust out. It gets to Ix- second nature to let sound travel in one side of Die head and out the other, so to si>eak. • Parents can make a real issue of careful listening mind concentration. Take the beginner to n quiet spot and give him your little order carefully. Make him look at you and get your idea. Do nut expeet him to hear you well when he is in the middle of building a fort. He will learn to snap attention when he Is not confused. Speak clearly and quietly. In lime he will leant to clear his own little space in his mind when ti strange lady tells him about her family and her dog. a Pay By Bruce Catton You're Loath to Knil Tills Jungle Jaunt Ivnii T. Sanderson spent liis first night under tropic sliirs when ho wns sciircely 17. And he has spent mast of his time in the juiiMlr, one plnce mid another, in the 10 years since. The result is an amazing series of experiences. He brings the best of these to you in his first book, "Animnl Treasure" (Viking: S3). 'Youthful Scotch iKitunilist. Mr. Snn- derson goes about the business of exploration in true scientific fashion. Once in the jungles, he spends years on a single expedition, stalking the known and the unknown life of the tropics. He traps, skins and stuffs animals, makes detailed notes on their behavior and paints them aguinst the backdrop of their environment. There's the African shrew, for in- sUince. "Of all the mean, unpleasant, evil-smelling, vicious things that live," writes the author, "the West African shrew is the meanest, most unsavory, and ir.iscible." The pole-cat just can't begin to compare, and three months after one little shrew had been preserved in alcohol, Sanderson still couldn't touch the jar without instant contamination. "Animal Treasure" portrays the great gamut of tropical life, from the shrew to the whistling skinks and back again. The author takes you into the bush with him on every hunt and invariably you come back reluctant. Just now the author is in Haiti, routing out new animal life, making now notes, sketching new art for another book. Ami certainly It promises to be a good one.—P. G. F.
