Today's bip shot, who shins painfully to the top of the flagpole and calls signals for half the nation, is apt to be down on the side- Walk tomorrow wondering where he can get a nice job shoveling Snow. This philosophical reflection was provoked by the news that Father Charles E. Coughlin had sold his newspaper, Social Justice, to a syndicate headed by a gentleman from Toledo. Having recently retired from the air with the approval of his • ecclesiastical superior, Fathter Coughlin now retires from the fourth estate likewise—and, presumably, returns to a single-minded devotion to the cares of his parish. * * * I T IS not so long since no appraisal of public opinion was worth a nickel until Father Coughlin had been heard from. Millions of people hung on his words. No great public issue could be settled without his say-so; the President of the United States could not act without drawing either a glittering encomium or a stern rebuke from Detroit's radio spellbinder. The man was up at the top—monarch, if not quite of all he surveyed, at least of some millions of listeners who clustered around the loudspeaker every week. But inflation always seems to be followed by deflation, in this country. Now the radio broadcasts are ended, and the sizzling newspaper is in other hands, and, deep peace reigns oVer Detroit and its environs. And the point is that this is just a sample of the way •American life seems to work. Father Caughlin was a symbol; , -like-Dr. Townsend. the Rev.

We shall probably have another depression some day, ,, "and when it comes the old phenomenon will be repeated. New demagogues will .arise and wax great, and new panaceas will be offered.

"Sorry. I didn't hear it," suu'd her husband. The evening wore on. Wore everybody out. The telephone rang and no cnc got up to answer it. Mrs. Brown finally went to the hall. "Why couldn't you go once in awhile?" she asked Jim. And Jim answered, "Last time, you said dad should answer it. It's mostly for him." Now it is not Mrs. Brown that 1 blame, although these vague commands seem to be her fault. It really is the family's fault. She lias learned to expect protest when she deliberately makes a request and names the performer. She lias adopted a system of asking for offers, and it doesn't work. Why do families put all the responsibility on mothers? Why can't they rise to an occasion and not make it appear that they are doing her the favor?

"Taste." one says—"that's where they all fall down. Why shouldn't a gossip column bo witty, informative, topical, and, at the same time, gracious?" The reason is deplorably obvious. The public has been trained to take greater interest in the domestic quarrels and petty scandals of their favorite public characters than in their virtues and the qualities that have made them famous.

Authority for this .statement is none other than J. Edpar Hoover, head G-man. He made the statement in a speech before law enforcement officers in North Carolina, and he went on to explain why the old type of noliceman is disappearing. "There never was a place for him," he said, "yet he existed because of the lethargy of the people. But today the public is becoming more and more alert to the needs and necessities of good law enforcement." That is a point that should not be overlooked. In this democracy of ours we get just about the kind of police work we ask for. As fast as we really insist on efficient, orderly, disciplined police forces, we get them. If we get the other kind it's really our own fault. f, H. Reg. O. S. Pat. Off. By DB. MORKIS FISHBEEV Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Eygela, the Health Magazine. Chafing of Skin Surfaces Often Gives Rise to Painful Irritation This is the sixteenth of a series of articles in which Dr. Morris Fishbein discusses diseases of the ikin. (No. 366) The skin is frequently so delicate that it responds seriously to the irritation that comes from rubbing together of two skin surfaces. This occurs, of course, between the thighs under the breaasts, between the buttocks, and in the skin folds of the ab donr.en of people who are very fat. Sometimes this kind of an eruption or irritation is seen between the fingers, and quite frequently it appears between the toes. Because ringworm of the feet, or so-called athlete's foot, is common, the mere irritation of the skin between the toes is sometimes diagnos«*l wrongly as athlete's foot. The only way to determine with certainty that the condition is athlete's foot is to find the parasites on the skin. .Sometimes there is irritation at the corners of the mouth due to rubbing or chafing. When the skin once becomes seriously rubbed and chafed, it becomes much more easy for infections of various kind* to gain entrance sx> that quite frequently there is secondary infection. The usual appearance of the skin in the condition called erythema inter- trigo, which merely means chafing between two folds of skin, is the loss of the ordinary dull tone of the skin and instead the appearance of a tis hue that is smooth, shiny, slightly red dened and somewhat moist. Obviously the treatment of this con dition involves first of ail prevention The methods of prevention will occur nl course, to anyone. The rubbing o the two surfaces must be prevented If it is a matter of wearing shues tha are too tight, that is easily corrected if the rubbing occurs becau.se of over weight, it is obvious that reduction o the weight is exceedingly important. Because the skin has been denudec of its upper layers by the rubbing, thi use of tiiu.stic soaps of any kind is us uaily forbidden. The use of ordinary ointments, jj;j.'_tes and lotions commonly cdvertised for skin cures is dangerou. because most of these also contain irritating substances and are not a plicable to a .skin that is chafed. The physician who looks at the skin under these circumstances will usually determine frist of aJl that there is nr infection present. This will frequently require the placing of some of the material from the skin under the microscope so that it may be studiec CAST OP rHAUACTKHS .111,1, \VK.Vr\VOIlTH, heroine, attractive di-lmlantc.

What was his father doing here, anyway? When he had left home, his father had inquired gruffly: "Going to the Wentworth party, anyway? Where's your pride, when that girl has treated you like dirt under her feet?" And then, his father had muttered angrily: "If that girl but knew it, I could stop the easy flow of money to her house. Stiff- necked with pride, those Went- worths, with, not an ounce of gratitude in their makeup. What they need is humbling," Yet, here was his father with old man Wentworth, and they were as smiling and friendly as ever. Milo started toward Jill. As he did so, the music stopped. He saw his father walk toward the orchestra and stoop to whisper in the leader's ear. "So you ran out on me, Jill?" Milo began indignantly. Jill broke in quickly: "This next dance is yours." * * * fyo Miio's amazement the orches- •*• tra was playing now and—of all things—the Wedding March. Playing it as he had never heard it played before. Swinging it! He glanced toward his father, and saw him standing proudly beside the orchestra leader, Milo looked down at Jill. There was a queer look in her eyes. Jill whispered quickly. "It's for us, Milo. Pon't you understand. Isn't it a clever way to announce our engagement? But don't tell your father you didn't know. Parents are so old-fashioned. I've just told him and dad, and of course they thought you knew." "Jill, darling. Angel! You planned to surprise me—you—'' Miio's voice broke in excitement. He crushed Jill in his arms and sw The about me fain mustn't laugh a/d look terribly happy and ver capturing the most eligible man in town. Nobody must guess the bitterness and desolation in her heart. Oh, where was Alan? * * * Jill saw him, Standing a little apart. He looked ill and stern. The strange look on his fare told her more than that. Behind that set, sick expression was inner turmoil, A thousand dreadful, destroying thoughts were raging in his mind. She must stop this mad, sacrilegious dance with a man sho despised and go to the man she loved. But no, she must not. There were dad and Mr. Monlanne surrounded by people. Mr. Mon- tanne was beaming at dad. And on dad's face was the J«ok of a person reprieved from some fearful punishment. "Oh, Jill, darling!" Milo was whispering. "All the time you were planning this. Dearest, you are trembling." Jill tried to smile. She spoke through stiff lips: "Only because I took such an awful risk. Sup-' pose you had decided you didn't want me." "Risk! When I've been off my lead about you ever since I knew you!" Jill scarcely heard Miio's ardent protest. The music had stopped and they were in the center of a milling crowd. Everyone was con- ratulating them. Saying the same things. Some of her closest girl friends were kissing her. Finally it was all over. The party had tapered off until of the scores who had come only the late- leavers remained, Jill thought mis erably. * * * ILL felt immensely lonely in the midst of the brassy brightness, assailed fay effusive farewells that had no real warmth or friendlK ness in them. Crowded by laughing, noisy people, she saw Jack trying to break through to her. His smile was touched by gravity, "Jack knows I've done something I didn't want to do," Jill thought, with a lump in her threat ment letting weariness and despair ave its way. Suddenly, she stiffened. There vas a sound like the scraping of chair. Then a cautious step. "Jill!" Barry stood in the doorway vhere Jill's frightened gaze w;is ooted. His eyes wore rod ar,\'\ ueer looking. His hair was di- heveled. "I'm fed up with the way you reat me, Jill." Barry's voice moldcred with sudden nnger. You think I'm a bum, don't you?" * * * [ILL didn't answer. She started ' toward the stair. But Barry ame close, barring her way. He eized her hands in a hard, tense jrasp and stared down at Jill with urning eyes. "I wasn't so drunk that T didn't •enow what I was doing," he snid. 'I wanted to see you alone. Do •on understand?" "No," said Jill, shaken by sonw* itrange fear. "I'm afraid I don't. 3 lease let go my hands." "You forget I'm not your brother, Jill." ig her into a one-step. rig room was whirling U. Oh, please, don't let , she prayed wildly. She aint. She must smile and J 'But he doesn't know why." "Hey there, sis." Jack hac slipped an arm about her. "I'm going to shove Milo out in the cold with the others. A'big party and getting engaged is too much for one little girl in the same evening." "I'll send him away, soon," Jil said in a low tone. Milo though' he deserved a goodnight kiss. Anc perhaps he did. She was going to have to go through with it. She might as well begin. When the door had closed upop Milo, later, Jill stood for a mo- Jill's face blanched, ivere dark with horror. Her eyes She broke away from him and fled up the stairs. Barry was not only drunk. ie must be insane, having some :errible obsession about her. She must go to Alan. She must jut the whole unhappy evening Behind her. She owed him an explanation. She owed herself a moment of happiness, when Alan ;old her he understood. When she :old him about dad and Mr, Mon-> tanne's plan to ruin him, Alan would say she had done the only thing possible for her to do. Jill began to undress quickly. She peeled off the delicate evening dres» und tossed it across a chair. She went into the bathroom and scrubbed her face briskly. A glow leaped up in her pale cheeks. She put on a simple dress and hat and took down her heavy fur coat. And, finally, thinking of the white scene outside, she tucked a wide, woolly red scarf about her throat. She scarcely breathed as she tiptoed quietly down the stair and into the hall which was heavy with the mingled odor of flowers and tobacco. A faint gleam of light was coming from her father's study. The fact registered, and then was forgotten as Jill's thoughts turned to Alan. It would be around 6 when she reached his studio. A slight smile curved her pale lips and lighted her unhappy eyes. How surprised he would be to have an early morning visitor! (To Be Today's Pattern for six consecutive years ID one consecutive husband, ami the nir is heavy with stifled yawns.
