Placing the Blame for Aerial Bombing I T IS impossible to read of the airplane bombing raids on Chinese cities without a sharp wave of indignation. But it is rather important for all of us to be sure that our indignation is directed at the right people. • Japan, of course, is doing the bombing 1 . But what do we niean by "Japan"? Do we mean the Japanese government, the Japanese army authorities or the entire Japanese people? In ordinary times we like the Japanese. They seem to be •a courteous and a kindly people, and innumerable travelers have described Japan as a pleasant and hospitable country. ~H^s this:war changed them into a race of sadistic monsters who exult in the bombing of helpless civilians and the maiming of'women and children? f- <• • ;•"- XXX ,A CEEW to this riddle, and tip-off as to the direction our /* indignation ought to take, is provided by a recent story from the Tokio correspondent of the New York Herald- Tribune. This writer points out that the Japanese public is simply baffled by the wave of American and European indignation over the bombing raids. For the Japanese people have not been told about the bombing of noncombatants. Their government has assured them that Japanese planes have attacked none but strictly military objectives. Not once has it even hinted that civilians 'have been killed by Japanese bombs. It has declared that ample warning has invariably been given to enable civilians to get out of danger, and it has insisted that Japanese aviators ,have risked their lives by flying low when dropping bombs so-that they could be certain they would not hit the noncombatants. Naturally enough, the Japanese people have believed all oflthis. As far as.they know, their airplanes have been scrupulous in observing the rules of civilized warfare. And so— jusf as naturally—they can't understand why Europe and America are so outraged. XXX I T WOULD pay us to remember this. For one thing, it will help us to direct our indignation at the right target. For another thing, it gives us an understanding of the essentially inhuman nature of modern warfare. . The Japanese are about like everybody else. No nation as a whole is ever going to approve the k-rrling of children or *the botnbing of homes. People just aren't that cruel. Yet j children will be killed and homes will be bombed in every mpdern war. Why? Because the people at war will not know what their own governments • are doing. Modern war is, above all, ruthless. has to be that way. Military leaders will use "frightful"ness"' because they fear they will lose if they don't. If we ordinary folk don't want that sort of thing done by American planes, we have just one recourse: to see that America stays out of war.

These need close scrutiny. One is the penchant of youth to want company, much company. ''Come on. fellows, and you girls, too. Always room for one more," snys William, after school.

Until now, the steadily expanding population likewise was .steadily expanding. When the school population starts to contract, things are going to be different.. This contraction has already begun—in Buffalo, at least. School enrollment there is more than 3300 below the mark for 1936; as a result, Buffalo may lop about 100 teachers from its rolls, and close four school buildings. The decrease reflects a decline in the birth rate, which began around 1929, It also reflects the passing of the depression—reflects it in reverse, for the depression bosted high school enrollment when boys and girls who could not get jobs decided to stay in school. Now that jobs are more plentiful, more youngsters are dropping out of high school to go to work. Many other cities will be meeting Buffalo's problem in the near future. The shift will make the whole field of elementary education different than it has been in the past. CAST OP CHAIl/VCTERS l»niSCIt>I<A.

Silicosis Is Worst of the Diseases Which Dust Can Inflict on Worker Dolan pounded his knee with a vicious fist. "No, damn it, we haven't! My God, to think we were only 10 seconds behind him. . . ." "What happened?" "Well, I hadn't gotten out of. the front door after leaving you when Martin drove up. Seems he got a report from Connecticut. They checked on every old lady within a dozen miles of the town this Elliot woman was supposed to be visiting. There's no such person. There's nobody with a mother living on St. Ann's avenue in Brooklyn, Mrs. Elliot is a phony. So I came back and got Johnson here to let me into 2-A with his passkey. Just as soon as we opened the door, we heard something like glass crunching, and by the time we got into the This \» the fifth of $ series of articles in which Or, JVJorris Fishbein discusses industrial diseases ajnd ways in which the workers' health may be guarded. (.Vo. 346) In recent years the dust diseases particularly prominent have been those conditions which result from employment where there is much dust in the -atmosphere. Perhaps the worst of all the dust diseases is silicosis caused by breathing silica dust. Th,e*e: are also conditions such as asbestosis, from breathing asbestos dust, and siderosis from inhaling iron dust. Silieosis has been called miner's consumption, potter's asthjna or stone jWSSon's tuberculosis, according to whether it is found among workers in mines, in potteries or in the stone in- (lustry. Silica is an element occurring in sand and in various other combinations and it is ol particular importance in the glass industry. It is used in nil sorts of scouring and polishing and in sandpaper grinding. It is Icund in fertilizer and in insecticides, as a filler in rubber, in the manufacture of various insulating materials and in the grinding of lenses. When dust containing silica is inhaled, changes in the lungs occur which involve tha pxociuctlon. in the lung of scars of fibrous tissue. The occurrence lung results eventually in the greater i i danger of secondary infection, parlic- I ularly with tuberculosis. I The condition develops gradually, | beginning with a dry cough, a ten- j dency to catch cold easily, shortness] of breath, and later perhaps some fev- I er. Of (jreat^st importance in the ' diagnosis of silicosis Ls the use of the , X-ray. By the use of this device it is • possible to watch the development of silicosis from the ejrly .stages down to' the serious changes which result in death. Particles of dust will cause a shadow on the X-ray plate. Gradually there develop certain tiny lines which change to mottled spots. Fir,aiiy there appears u socalled "snow storm" effect. 'Since the .Ulicotic process Ls an inflammation, it may go on for some | time even after the worker is removed } from contact with the dust. All workers in dust industries should have an X-ray examination and a general physical examination previous to employment, and it might be well for thtrn also to have an X-ray examination at least once each year to determine the extent to which any changes are progressive. If there ;s found to be any silicotic change in any worker's lung, he should i be removed immediately from his em- i ployment. If, however, the disease i has progressed beyond the early stages, removal ia useless. could feel her lungs bursting for air as those powerful hands slowly, relentlessly, choked oil her breath. This was the end for her, as it had been for Amy, just a few nights before. This was death, the inevitable. . . . Eventually she returned to a dull consciousness. At first she dared not open her eyes, for fear it was another world to which she would awaken. She had died, even as Amy had died, and this was a new beginning, a new life. . . . It was a familiar voice which rouse; 1 her. A voice which she ol such damage to the tissue of the Beyond such removal, the treatment had < ome to fear in these few days, but which would forever ring >n her ears as the sweetest ] music. "That's right, young lady," Sergeant Dolan said kindly, "open your eyes!" Cilly opened them, looked around. Why, she was back in her own living room, stretched out or the divan! Perhaps she had never gone on the fire escape adventure; perhaps it was ail a wild dream. But— "Another 10 seconds and you'd have been a goner," Dolan told her. "Whatever took you up there?" * * •» C ILLY sat up, smiled, a little forlornly. There were a thou- sEina demons pounding in her heal, and her throat still felt as if i! were encased in an iron band, but ihe was glad to be alive. She held her hand out weakly to Sergeant Dolan. 1 Thanks for saving my life," she said simply. "You've got him?" bedroom, the bird had flown. Down the fire escape, of course. There wasn't a trace of him, except the footprints where he landed when he jumped, and a few tracks to the sidewalk. But we did get there in time to prevent his finishing you off ... thank heaven!" "Thank heaven, indeed," Cilly repeated, with forced cheerfulness. She stroked her throat tenderly. "Now tell me," Dolan insisted, "what to«U you up there','" "Curiosity, I guess, I had a feeling that we'd find something in one of the vacanl. apartments, either the one above me or Carruthers'. Only," she slumped back, despairingly, "I didn't see. He turned off the light before I could get a glimpse of him. L,ord! To think tiow close we were. . . ." What did you find up there?" * * * C ILLY told him about the empty chest of drawers, the man's coat in the closet; she emphasized the barren atmosphere of the room, as if it were not really a woman's permanent home. "I'm sure the secret to the whole affair is in that apartment upstairs," she finished. Dolan nodded. "You're right derstand that? Not to a soul! You don't know who this fellow may be. No matter who rings your bell, or whom you sec standing out there in the hall, you're not to open the door. Remember that!" "I won't," Cilly promised. "Good. As soon as I c;m round up our fingerprint expert, I'll be back to go through that apartment thoroughly. And I'll bi 'ng along a good stout policewoman to spend the* night he-re with you. Now, if you can just stick it cut for 10 or 15 minutes. . . ." "Oh, I won't be afraid," Cilly assured him. T El-'T nlono, Cilly shuddered. -*-' She was not neai-ly as brave as she had pretended to the sergeant. She stit there on the divan, whore he had left her, straining her oyes to watch every nook and corner of the apartment at once. From \vhcrc slu; sat, she could see into Uic ! bedroom next door; she could \vati:h the fire escape window. If but a shadow crossed that window, she told herself, she would scream loud enough to wake the dead. . . . She watched the banjo clock on the wall, listened to it tick awav the seconds. She wondered whicil echoed loudest through the room —the sharp, staccato ticking of tht» clock, or the dull, thundering beat of her own heart. about that . . . we're going back for a more thorough search. I wanted to be sure you were all right first." "I'm fine now, thanks. ... I guess I don't choke so easily." Dolan stood up slip hiniself into and began to his enormous raincoat. "Within 10 minutes," he assured her, "there'll be a man from headquarters to spend the night in Mrs. Elliot's apartment, just in case our friend does come back.

By Bruce Cation Contusing, Amusing, This Mystery Tnlc Richard Hull is one writer who believes in being flippant about murder. The result, is a series of mystory stories that are funny as well as pu/.- /ling; and the newest one—"The Murderers of Monty" (Putnam: S2i. is one of the best of the lot. Mr. Hull tells how three Englishmen, for n gug. form an elaborate conspiracy to pretend to murder n young chap named Monty. They let Monty in on it and ho plnys his part zestfully. Otic of the trio is to poison him. the second is to stab him, the third is to shoot him; it all looks like good, harmless fun. But when the chosen night comes, and the three pranksters go through their appointed motions, poor Monty actually does get killed. He gets ki~- cd three times, in fact; he is poisoned, stabbed and shot. Which, of course, loaves the three conspirators in a rare fix, and leads to a neat, well-handled story of detection which will keep you guessing furiously. Another good mystery in which murder gets flippant treatment is "The Search for My Great Uncle's Head," by Peter Coffin (Crime Club: S2I. In this one somebody detaches and conceals the head of n rich old curmudgeon who has invited his relatives in to hear him read his will. The will vanishes along with the head, and a bookish college professor finds himself playing the leading role. It's a good story, guaranteed to amuse as well as mystify. "Murder of a Professor," by John Miller (Putnam: $2), is strictly serious —and somewhat pedestrian. A university professor is mysteriously slain and another professor, suspected of the deed, has to go ahead and solve it. The noteworthy part of this book is the fact that the author has discovered a brand-new way to commit murder. Saturday. October 16, OPR. 1937 BY NEA SERVICE. INC.
