Civilization Quitting Before It Is Beaten TT MUST have been very amusing to watch, that day recently 1 when British government authorities went into an orphan asylum near London to experiment with eras masks. , The government has been trying to devise jms masks suitable for small children. A number of experimental masks had been made: so 50 infants in 'an asylum were made; so ">0 infants in an asylum were chosen to play the nart of jruinea pigs. These children put on the masks and had a great time, giggling and gesturing gaily as they went blundering about thp asylum in their grotesque "funny faces." And it's a good thing someone was able to get a laugh out of it- For nothing that modern society does is auite so grimly discouraging as this despairing effort to find some way of protecting children against the gas attacks of wartime. * * * I F WE had any real conception of what the word "civilization" ought to mean, a news story of this kind would make us rise in revolt against the modern war machine and the blight it has put on modern life. For a society that has to devise gas masks for small children is clearly a society which, having stumbled to the dark end of a blind alley, is vainly trying to protect its own children against itself. It is admitting its own incompetence to perfoi'm one of its most imoortant jobs-. For if civilization does not mean that small children are protected against the threat of violence and sudden death, what in the name of sanitv does it mean ? To be sure, the gas masks may help a little- The inventors may be able to keep one jump ahead of the chemical warfare experts. They may be able to rig up a mask which a small child won't tear off. And there is always the chance, slight but hopeful, that the bombs will leave a few children alive to put on the masks before the gas attack comes. But what a ghastly mockery it all is! * * * F OR this despairing effort to fit gas masks to babies simply means that we have given up trying to make our Christian civilization live up to its name. We have equipped ourselves with the kind of weapons which make it certain that when we ftiake war we shall kill the young, the aged, the sick and the defenseless ith indiscriminating efficiency. Having done that, \ve have found ourselves forced to admit that we have no way of preventing war. At the same time that we have made war more horrible than ever before, we have confessed its inevitability. ; A world which does things like that is a world profoundly out of joint. It is a world that is about due to discover that ahead of the problem of deciding between democracy, Fascism, Communism and any other ism whatever must come the task of protecting children from child-killers in uniform. For if it can't do that, it is assuredly a lost world— whatever choice it makes on these other matters. With All Their Faults We Love Them Still OBOY! CAMPAlCN CONTRIBUTIONS!

But once inside, lo and behold, he may be given blocks to build with, or some colored clay to fashion into cars. From Blocks to Scribbling As time goes on. perhaps he asks for harder things. He may even want to use colored chalk to scribble on the blackboard. To him this is harder, because he has always avoided writing. But even if he docs not take kindly to chalk or pencil at first, you see that one great barrier has already been removed. He bus learned by association to think school a very pleasant place. His interest once engaged, his mind is open rather than closed. He is anxious to prove himself, whereas before LL BY MARY RAYMOND Copyright, 1937, NEA Service, Inc. Letters From Home A REVERSAL of the time-honored exhortation to college bovs to be sure and "write home to mother" is contained in an address recently made by a dramatic critic before the New York Historical Association. This gentleman turned the tables and urged mothers to take time out "between cigarette puffs and cocktail sips" and write to their collegiate sons. That the average mother i.s so busy with cigarettes and cocktails that she neglects her correspondence is probably something of an overstatement. But that the eld-fashioned practice of writing long letters, and writing them often, is falling ino disuse among adults as well as among youths is probably quite true. And there i.s a good deal of good sense in the speaker's concluding assertion : "If modern mothers would establish a letter-writing hour and take it as seriously as they do their cocktail hour, present-day youth would reach manhood with higher ideals than they now possess." mmm m* «g gs% The Family Doctor t M.

Ringworm Needs Early Treatment to Check Spread of Infected Area This U the thirteenth of a series of articles in which Dr. Morris Flshbein discusses diseases of the skin. (No. 363J In addition to the ringworm that occurs on the heard or the scalp, various fungus infections may occur elsewhere on the body, particularly the feet, the scalp and the groins. Nowadays we know that there are various types of ringworm which the specialist in diseases of the skin classifies after he has studied them under the microscope. It is customary to scrape a small portion of the infected material off the skin and to put it on a glass side, sometimes adding various solutions and heating slightly. Then when the slide is viewed through the microscope, the fungi which cause the disturbance are seen- One of the ordinary forms of ringworm appears on the skin as a ring- like infection. Doctors call it tinee circinata because of its circular appearance. Children are more commonly affected by this condition than are grown people but it may affect anyone. Usually the uncovered parts of the body are involved—that is, tha face, neck and hantte—but the ringworm will ateo be found running down the chest and on the Boles of the feet. The infection usually begins as a red flat ipot which then spreads outward and may gel to be as big as an inch or more. Soon it begins to scale away at the points where it is healed. Occasionally there may be little pimples or blisters at the margins of the inflammation and sometimes two spots will join together to make one large one. The spous itch and burn but not nearly as severely as in other conditions. After a few weeks with proper treatment they will heal. Fortunately, the infection is not so serious that it will do a great deal of harm. It is important, however, to recognize the nature of the condition promptly so that the doctor may apply the necessary antiseptics that will de- tlroy the fungi and slop the growth.

A small child's interest can only be fixed for short periods, but he will bo UK.re patient with the task that lie tackled with so much eagerness at first. Many lessons can be taught throunh the interest of the child, but unless interest is used as a means to an end. rather than for its thrill alone there is danger of setting in any child, a habit of doing only those things that intrigue him. Lost Without Pleasant Tasks Interest should leacd to fine habit traits, rather than away from them There are so many people in the world who are lost when they lack the opportunity to work at the things they like to do. Such a person is constantly filled with conflicts, trying to force himself up hills each time he is faced with duty that is uncongenial to him. The mother should have this in view when she uses the idea of attracting the child to work. The cute little red broom should be the means to an end. not merely the thrill of handling a new shiny toy. Even when it is worn. Mary should be willing to sweep up her crumbs. The nice little stories about Peter Rabbit are fascinating, but here again, jntorest i.s largely a means to an end. Once love of books is established, real education begins. The child won't turn away and say. "1 don't like books," because through original interest he will continue to digest anything that comes in book form.
