How About Ducking "Next" Depression F OR a long time the people of this country had one question which they were constantly asking: "When will the de- pression end ?" There seems to be general agreement now that the depression is. pretty well over. So the old question has been dropped, to be replaced by an equally anxious one: "When ^ will the next depression begin ?" i,' v There seems to be no particular confidence anywhere that we have mastered the problem of preventing depressions. We got out of the last one, by hook or crook, and we are now ' enjoying a fair measure of prosperity. But he would be a rash man who predicted this new-found prosperity will continue indefinitely. So while we have a good thing now, we want to know how long we are going to keep on having it. XXX P CURES on industrial production are ordinarily dull reading. But Elmer C. Bratt of Lehigh University has present,ed some, in the current issue of The Annalist, which indicate 1 that the "prosperity curve" is going to keep on raising for some time yet—possibly for as long as four years. A business decline, remarks Mr. Bratt, follows a period in which industrial pi'oduction gets out of adjustment. In good times,.production of durable goods—buildings, factory equipment, railroad engines, and so on—tends to exceed the production of consumer goods. Presently there is an oversupply of durable goods as compared with the supply of consumer goods. The country's need for durable goods is met, workers making them are released, their release causes the demand for consumer goods to fall—and down we go in the unpleasant spiral of'a" depression. Right now, continues Mr. Bratt, no such situation is in sight. The country still needs a great many more things in the durable goods bracket. The railroads have only begun to make up for the long period in which they bought little equip. ment. The construction industry has hardly got started, although the need for new buildings is considerable. And so on and so on—with the result, according, to Mr. Bratt, that we may look forward to several years of rising prosperity before production of the two kinds of goods gets out of balance and sends us downhill again. XXX A LL of this is very encouraging—as far ,as it goes. But must we" accent the old depres'sion-and prosperity cycle as an immutable law of nature? Is there no way in which we can avoid these disastrous dips into misery and want? To know that we shan't have a depression for several years is good, but not good enough. It might be a good thing for us to stop thinking about recovery and start thinking about prevention. Sizing Up WPA ABOLITION of the Public Works Administration would J\ seem to make some sort of landmark in the slow progress of our long fight against the depression. The PWA was in some ways the most spectacular of the emergency spending agencies: its demise indicates that the emergency is considered by the administration to be nretty well past. It is generally agreed that PWA has been something of a disaopointment—possibly because we expected too much of it in the first place. But in the main it has been a useful agency. Since 1933 it has alloted to non-federal projects uo- ' wards of $2,700,000,000. and has created some 661,000,000 man-hours of direct emnloyment and two and one-half times that much indirect employment. Now that it is out of the picture, we may be able to get a clearer picture of what it did for us—and figure out how we i going to pay for it. The Family Doctor M. Reff. U. 8. Pat. Off. By DK. MORUIS FISHBEIN editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, tad of Hygela, the Health Magazine, Claim of Sure Cure" for Cancer Stamps the Man Who Makes It as a Charlatan This concludes a series of 20 articles in which Dr. Fishbein discusses cancer, its causes and methods of prevention and cure. (No. 341 ) If anyone, either doctor or layman, tells you he can cure cancer every time, he is a chalatan and a swindler Hardly a month goes by without the announcement that someone has made a significant advance against cancer As the years pass, however, these cures are never heard of again. It takes at least five years to test a cancer cure. We know today that the average duration of life of. a person with cancer when the cancer is no treated is approximately three years We know that the duration of life following the application of surgery or the use of radium and the X-ray foi cancers of certain forms may be extended as much as 10 or 15 years. The treatment of any considerable numbei dt people with any special method in cancer should show within a period of five years whether or not the method is worth while. None o fthe widely exploited methods of treatment of cancer which have been before the public in recent years meets this criterion. There i» a gold cure, a lead cure, a vaccine, a ray cure, serums, pastes, ointnwnts, and many others. "None of these has as yet been proved to be of any real value. When the American Association for the Control of Cancer tried some years ago to obtain applicants for a prize to be given to the one who first developed H cure for cancer, 250tf people applied. Not one of the cures offered was worth the paper on which the description of the method was written. The American Medical Association has a pamphlet called "Cancer Cures and Treatments" with the records o 35 cancer quacks who have offeree their methods to the American people since 1900. The list of these men anc the description of their methods o work should indicate to anyone th< unprincipled character of the cancel quack and his willingness to explio the sick and the dying. 'Many of these quacks claim that theii methods will not work if the patien has previously had surgery or radium. Thus they do harm by selling not only a worthless treatment of their own but by<* preventing the use of a scientific treatment in the hands of others. Of all the ghouls who feed on the bodies of the dead and the dying, can- •;er quicks are the most unprincipled md the most vicious. ^ ^.•••••i -"onu«w» By Olive Roberts Barton Cripple Needs Help to Forget Infirmity A mother did a wise thing, before school began. She went to see the teacher and explained her problem. It concerned her little boy who had iad two fingers of his hand removed as the result of an accident. "Could you tell the children not to notice it?" she asked. 'But," replied the teacher, "Teddy will be there and he will hear it all." Then she, herself, had an idea. "You might bring Teddy in the afternoon," she suggested. "That will give me ime to get the co-operation of the other children." It was agreed on, and that afternoon Teddy went to school. In the meantime Miss hite had spoken this way to her small charges: "A ittle boy was riding in an automobile with his mother and daddy one day. A man ran into them with his car and everybody was hurt. The little boy was badly cut with glass. His hand was so terribly hurt that he had to lave part of it taken off. He feels pretty bad about it, just as any of you would feel if you lodst your fingers. He is afraid that cruel people will talk about it and stare at him. What do you think of such people as that?" Bud Boys Make Good The tots looked at her, and then they all began to talk at once. ''My mama says it isn't nice to notice such things," said one. "I'm glad I never got hurt," said another. "The way to do is just pretend," said one philosopher gravely. '"Well, children, this little boy is coming to school today," said Miss White. "He couldn't get here this morning. When he comes, let us be nicer to him than those other impolite people have been. Not see his hand at his eyes and keep our own eyes off his poor little hand? Looking is as bad as talking, and he will ontice if we ever so much as glance at his hand. What had we better do?" "I won't look. I'll just, just smile at him," said Dorothy. And all the Dorothies agreed. So did moat of the boys. But it was the snapping eyes of the mischievous ones that Miss White was watching. Two or three boys, she had already spotted as little rascals. They could make Teddy's first few days very miserable. "What do you think. Peter?" Six-year Peter squirmed.

MORGAN «i Jw I'll just say that I bet I can lick him. Maybe he'll lick me. I'll let him." Pete's Idea Work Miss White was astounded. Here was the real answer. This tough little baby had undermined them all. That was the idea exactly. To let Teddy know that his handicap was not too important. That he could still fight. At any rate, he would know that others thought thim worthy of battle, in spite of his crippled hand. Teddy went to school and in an hour forgot about his dread of being too critically appraised. The children were fine. In a day they had forgotten all about his difference. It set him up no end. I think that both mother nnd teacher were wise, but that little Peter was wisset of all., a U By Bruca Catton Record of Mutinies Is Thrilling Book. From the time when the first Phoeni- nician trading vessel went groping across the Mediterranean, the sailor has had a hard life. Every so often he has risen in mutiny against his lot —thereby contributing to the race's annals some of their most bloody and exciting chapters. Irvin Anthony reviews the long history of mutiny in a new book, "Revolt at Sea" (Putnam: $3). It is an engrossing story. Mutiny has been fomented, on occasion, by disgruntled officers. Mr. Anthony cites the hisotric mutinies which Magellan ririd Drake had to face, and the teapot tempest created by a midshipman on the ITU. S. Navy's brgi Scmers. At times it has been a blind protest against hard living and hard driving—as in the case which led the famous clipper ship captain, "Bully" Waterman, into the hands of the San Francisco vigilance committee. At times an entire fleet has mutinied. CAST OK ,I,A I'lKIH 1-1 —liorolnp, youtiHr wumnn iicfnrncy. A.HY l<l:iut—< llli'« coo m in nip anil mitnU'fcr'i victim. ,11M KIOIIKKIAV—< Illy'n flnnro.

CHAPTER XXTH , T ONG before down on Thursday] the rain started; by 9 o'clock It had settled to a dismal, depressing downpour. Alone in her apartment, Cilly shivered, not so much from the cold as from the penetrating gloom. Though she could not foresee it, this was to be the most eventful day of her life; perhaps it was the premonition Which provoked this quivering of her nerves. However, she could not know that. She thought it was a good day for the blues, and would have welcomed the happy release of work at the office. But there were other things which to attend, Most of all, she had lo see Sergeant Dolan, even if il meant waiting at police headquarters all day. They could be no more desolate than her own rooms, and not nearly as lonely. After a quick breakfast, she put on a warm woolen dress, one which had been held over from the previous winter pending the emergency of just such a day as this. Then, fortified against the elements by a long raincoat and wr.torproof hat, she ventured downtown. It was not quite 10 o'clock when she readied police headquarters. A youthful officer ushered her into a small ante-room off the same corridor as the meeting room which had held the investigation the day before. Sergeant Dolan, the officer explained, was busy for the moment, but would see her shortly. She sat down to wait. The door into the corridor wns left open, so that she could watch those who passed by. Beyond the door, she heard a woman sobbing, and the _low murmur of a man's voice offering reassuring comfort. There was something familiar in the voice, low-pitched though it was. She watched the door for their approach. The woman was making an effort lo control herself now; the sobs ceased, only the sharp intake of steadying breaths was audible. They pas-red the door, directly in line of Cilly's vision. She sat up suddenly. The man was Harvey Ames! And the woman who leaned against him, her face hidden In one of his voluminous handkerchiefs, was the one who had fled the Kayview Apartments two days before , . , Mrs. Wheeler! + * * pILLY walked to the door nnd ^ slared nfler them. There wns something gently pathetic in their altitude, nnd sl*o felt n warmlh of sympathy loward them, despite the knowledge Ihot they had defied the conventions. "Good morning, Miss Pierce!" Cilly turned abruptly to face Sergeant Dolnn. "Been waiting for me long?" he asked. His voice was matter-of- fact and brusk; Cilly thought il lacked the rather cordial friendliness of ottioi' occasions. But perhaps she imagined thai. He led the way back into the small anteroom, shutting the door behind him, "We can talk in here ns well as any place," he observed. "I see you've located Mrs. Wheeler?" Cilly mentioned. She resumed the same chair she hnd occupied these several minutes. "Yes, Ames brought her il} this morning." Dolan sat down opposite her. "The old story. Ames and his wife haven't hit it o(T for years, and Mrs." Wheeler's the other woman. Ames has children, and he's fearful of the scandal. I feel sort of sorry for them. . . ." "I'm glad to (hid you so understanding this morning, sergeant," Cilly remarked. "What do you mean?" "I hope you'll be as kindly disposed to me." "Any reason why I shouldn't be?" "Yes. You believed what Mr. Corbett s n id about me yesterday." "Did I?" "It wasn't the truth, Sergeant Dolan. Please believe that. I went across the street with n definite idea in mind—to get up on the roof and see what was going on in the Bnyview. I had lo ring somebody's doorbell in order lo gain admittance to Iho house, nnd Corbett was the firsl name that popped inlo my head. I didn't go to call on them, but Mr. Corbett wns feeling . . . n little genial, you might say. He met me in tho hall, and insisted on my slopping in for a drink—which I didn't finish, incidentally. When I insisted on leaving, he seemed n little disappointed. Perhaps I wounded his vanily in some way. , . . However, I went up on the roof to watch the people In our house, nnd what I told you nbout Mr. Hunter Is absolutely Irue." , * * * T)OLAN was looking out of Ihe window thoughtfully m "Well," he said, "I've nlron started A litllo investigation Hunter. Don't think thnt I was going to consider (t. Mnlter fnct, I guess I'd tak? your wo tiny day against Coibelt's. Ml Pierce." "Thnnk you, sergeant, know this case means a tfient a to me, nnd you know that I'll anything I am to disprove theory you're working on." Doltn turned his gaze to Cl "I'm sorry you feel thnt ws., ho said. "We all make mlslnlfi you know, and I think you making a tremendous one in k< ing fjiilh with this Kerr. He's worth it." Cilly stiffened. "I still pni to be the judge of thnt, Sergei Dolan," she sold quietly. "In .. meantime, however, we have fevfess now suspects: Harvey Ames |no| Hunter." - "Oh, they're not on the up up, perhaps, but I don't thinlc^ cnn tie them to the murder. |. admit both possibilities.
