Skin is Living Tissue and Hence Reflects Many Organtic Infections This is the first of a series of articles in which Dr. Morris Fishbein discusses diseases of th skin. Your skin is living tissue—not just an envelope on the outside of your body. The skin has. indecld, been called the irrow of the body because many of the conditions which affect the human being as n whole have symptoms related to the skin as one of the signs that there is something wrong. In the skin are the nerve endings xvhich make us uware of the sensations of cold or of warmth and which let, its know when something from outside is touching I ho body. The skin of a grown-up person weighs about six pounds. If spread out flat on the ground, it would cover an area of about 16 to 20 square feet. The blood vessels in the lowest layers of the' skin run in waves or little hills. These arc responsible for the ridges on the palms of the hands :ir the tips of the fingers. No two human beings have these ridges in exactly the same form. Some forms of skin disease are quite definitely hereditary. Color of the skin is dependent largely on in- hertiance and to some extent on the amount of blood in the vessels beneath the skin. li for any reason these blood vesels contract so that they do not contain the normal amount of blood, the person looks pale. The skin also reexilates the temperature of the body by secreting water which is evaporated from its surface or by holding back water and thus preventing evaporatirn. The skin on the palms of the hands, the soles of the feet, the shoulders and the buck of the neck is the thickest of that anywhere in the body. It varies, however, rom 2-100 o an inch to 16-100 o an inch in thickness from the thinnest to the thickest portions. Hairs begin to grow on the skin in' the two to three months before the baby is born. This is a downy growth which will later be lost. Two months before the bay is born the real hair begins to develop. The nails start to develop on the fingers about six By Olive Roberts Barton. BY MARY RAYMOND Copyright, 1937, NEA Service, Inc.

"Thanks," said the young man, "I'm Alan Jeffry," The taxi rolled to a stop at the curb. "Goodby." She spoke faintly, All the confidence was gone. A lump was in her throat. She liked him tremendously, She had liked him tremendously in Europe. "Goodby," said Aian Jeffry, Quickly, handing a bill to the driver. He lifted his hat, placed it firmly on his head, picked up his luggage and headed toward a subway. Jill had a wild desire to call out: "Where are you going?" of course no well-bred girl "Jill! Heavens, where did you come from?" Mrs, Wentworth exclaimed. "From Europe. I've been spending some time there recently. Didn't you know?" Jill's tone was light, as she stooped and kissed the older woman, "It's a wonder that I did. You stepmother. So why not? "Scotch though dad says I am, I still have some verra verra smart clothes," Jill continued. "I quite dazzled a young man who was on the same boat coming over.

"It doesn't matter now. I'm here," Jill said. * * * J ILL had risen from her chair. "Oh, don't go, Jill!" There was something queer about her stepmother's manner, Jill decided. The bright excitement in her face and voice presaged something. "Barry is giving a house party at the said, lodge," Mrs. Wentworth "Grand," Jill said. But her tone wouid do that.

Not even when the taxi was rolling up the driveway of her home. It was difficult to believe that rich and lovely girl could be interested in Barry. It wasn't only "I'm at home!" Jill thought, try- lhat Barry was weak ancl dissi . ing to muster enthusiasm. A moment later, she was stand- 1S h beside ing irresolutely in front of the ' massive door.

Her face flushed scarlet, and then turned very white. "Then I won't go! You know I detest him." You forget, Jill, that Mr. Mon- tanne has been a wonderful friend to your father." Mrs. Wentworth's voice was soft, but somehow it sounded hard and cold, despite its softness. Never, Jill thought miserably, have I been allowed to forget the Big Three. The trio of bankers had loomed in the background of the Wentworth existence as long as she could remember. "You can be very rude and ob« stinate, Jill." Mrs. Wentworth's eyes gleamed coldly. "I'm afraid it's too late for you to refuse, however. I called Milo and told him there was a chance you'd ar-> ri"e in time for the party.
