MORUIS F1SHBE1N Cdttdt, Journal of the American Medical Association, «nd of Hygeta, the Health Warts Are Common and So Are Odd Ideas as to Their Cause and Cure This is the 18th of a series of art* kles in which Dr. Morris Fishbein , discusses diseases of the skin. (No. 368) - The common wart is. a nuisance. Some people are much more troubled [ with them than are others. There are all sorts of strange delusions and notions about warts and these have been found to exist among peoples all over the world. For instance, in a collection of superstitions in Adams County, Illinois, the following beliefs about warts were found to prevail: that a person who has a wart will be lucky or become wealthy ;that a wart on the chjrt means a mean disposition. In fact, there is a couplet which says "A wart •on the chin is a devil within." There are innumerable beliefs in relationship to warts and. toads. Thus it is said that if one holds a frog in the hand, one will acquire warts, or that if you kill a toad, your hands will be covered with warts. This, of • course, is symbolic because the skin of the toad or the frog looks as if it were covered with warts. ' There are innumerable superstitions as to healing a wart. Most of these are superstitions in which one is supposed to rub the wart with something or other, murmuring some sort of a charm and then burying the material used for rubbing the wart. The materials used for the rubbing of warts have been apples, bacon, baking soda, beans and most of the other vegetables.. There are also symbolic notions relative to the removing of warts which involve drawing a mark around the wart, tying a hair around the wart, and in association with this the murmuring of a magic charm. There are people who believe that rheumatism may be removed by wearing a ring or trying a string around the rheumatic joint. Another series or superstitions involves the tying of knots in a string- as many knots as you have warts— murmuring a charm and then burying the string in a graveyard. All of these are symbolic notions representing the idea of tying away the affected area, or transferring the condition to something else which is buried. These ideas may give comfort, but there is no real scientific proof that they have any value. NEXT: What science does about warts. The A. F. of L. and C. I.

CHAPTER XX ^ME soft closing ot the front door behind Jill had not disturbed John Wemvorth, who fid In a dsep chair by the ftre yi his study. It had not disturbed Barry, who had gone back to the music room when Jill fled upstairs, and now was sprawled on a cushioned divan in the music room, John Wentworth had been sitting there, his eyes on the fire, since the close of a second and briefer conference with Oscar Montnnne. The second conference had been very different from the first. In the first he had pitted his wits against a man who had once been his friend. A man who had turned suddenly into an enemy, determined upon his ruin. And then, Jill had come in to annovnce her engagement to Oscar Montunne's son. There had been a second transformation then, even more startling than the first. Ev- eryth'nij had been sweetness and light. Th..-y had gone back to the study from tho ballroom. He and Mon- tanne. "I've been wrong," Montanne had .?atd gruffly. "I had become frightened, I suppose by the changing aspects, affecting big business. But families must hold together. I'm a°ing to stick with you, of course, John. I'm sure I can swing the others back into line. The loan will go through, of course, though it's a bigger loan than I would extend any other man at this time." But winning the battle had brought no glow oJ: victory. It was humiliating to find suddenly that the balance of power through which he was holding his immense investments was a sheer economic hairline; and that the loss of one powerful financial adherent could change the scene that his own power, personality and business acumen had kept in its present focus. He was tired. Infinitely weary of the strain. And there would be months of wary watchfulness and conciliation before his busi- 1 ness would Swing clear again—beyond What he now saw was a vi' ciolis flnnncial circle. Me had got himself in this plight by depending too tmich on the friendship of three men. And friendship had failed him. Or rather, it would have failed him if Jill had hot become engaged to Milo Montanne. He was troubled about .till. He had never believed she cared anything for Milo. Could It be possible that she had realized the strain being put upon him? * * * TTE could not bear to think that, tt couldn't be true that Jill had sacrificed herself for him. She had come in too radiant and proud. She must have become fond of Milo. He hoped she was not dazzled by Milo's great wealth. He got up suddenly, glancing at the clock. Twenty minutes to six. Jreat heaven, he had been here for hours going over the same ground and getting nowhere beyond the fact that his business trials were over, for the present nt least. He walked heavily toward the hall. When he had gone to his study the place had blazed with lights. The entrance was a gloomy cavern now, but a faint glow came from the music room. His faint smile was erased as he reached the door of the music, room. The light there was blazing down from a glittering chandelier. It revealed the figure of Barry, his head buried in a pillow. The lines of worry deepened on John Wentworth's weary face as he studied the sleeper, taking in the flushed face and tousled hair. The fool. The besotted young fool. He should have a real raking down. Yet it would probably do no good. A hard, impenetrable j sheet of callousness and ruthlessness had grown over any manly qualities Barry might once have had. He hated to believe Airry had never possessed those qualities. He moved and Barry opened drink-dulled eyes, meeting the quiet brooding gaze of his stepfather. * * * "CO it's my thoughtful parent. Might I inquire the reason for the suddenly fatherly interest that would fix me a night cap and tuck me in bed." "Come into my study, Barry," his stepfather said, sternly. "I have wanted to talk with you a long while. But I kept hoping—" "Oh, can the chatter," Barry re- torte.d. He stumbled to his feet uid-followed his farther acrossthe lall and into the room where the Ire had burned down to ruddy embers. John Werttworth closed the doo* and motioned to. a chair across from him. "Sit there," he com* manded. Barry slumped into a chair, hU eyes flUed with malicious light. Hi lit a cigaret and began to smoke, one hand nervously toying with 8 heavy marble paperweight thai held down some papers on hlJ father's desk. "Shoot," Barry said. "And thej) maybe I'll do some talking. IVi sick and tired of being treated Ilka a beggar in this family." "That's what you are!" Mr, Wentworth's voice was unexpectedly violent. "I've tried to ba lenient and patient with you, Barry. I've waited to see soma signs of settling down. But you've kept on. Spending, wasting, drinking. You're a grown man and yet you've never earned a nickel IB your J.'fe. All you do is to whim for more money to waste. You don't know it, Barry, but we'va been skating on thin ice. Perhaps it's my fault that none of ym) realized it. I've tried to keep my family from worry." "You don't get anywhere talk- ng depression stuff," Barry growl-« ed. "I know you're lousy with money. And if I'm a beggar, I suppose your flne Jack is—" "All I could ever want in a son," John Wentworth spoke fervently. 'I suppose you're planning to eave him a big slice, and cut me out—" John Wentworth spoke heavily: 'Your mother came to me about the will, also, Barry. I told her I would be just about it. But I lidn't tell her what I planned to do. I'm going to change my will. ' think the fairest thing to you vould be to have your share held n trust while you make a man of yourself. If in five years after my death you've proved—" Barry, his hand still clutching the heavy marble paperweight, had Scenarist Does an Editorial on a Picture He Didn't Write leaped to his feet. in a vicious shout: His voice rose "You couldn't get away with it. I won't let you—" He rushed toward his father, his hand still raised. John Wentworth rose to his feet, putting a hand up as though to ward off a blow. Jfis pale lips moved, but no words came. Before Barry reached him, he had crumpled suddenly, his head striking the andirons on the hearth. Suddenly sobered, Barry lifted his father up. There was something about the still, white face. In horror, Barry placed his father back on the rug, and got to his feet. A cry was stifled on his lips. (To Be Continued) YOU TOO CAN ENJOY A VACATION FROM WINTER IF YOU'RE WARMTH-WISE!

Paul Harrison's Riicst columnist today Is John Wrxley, playwright who wrote "The tjflst Mile," "They Shull Not Die" nnd "Steel," who Is now n Wnrncr Bros, scenarist. n.v JOHN WKXI.EY At least once in n lifetime, every citizen longs to put pen to n novel, every novelist desires to do n play, every playwright yearns to do a film scenario . . . and every Hollywood scenarist swears that as soon as his bank account totals exactly half n million (not n cent more), he will fly to that little island off the coast of Maine and there write the Great American Novel. Nothing novel about this. Now I am perhaps one of those playwrights, who, as an exception to the above, proves the rule. My own particular ambition has been a long-smoldering and consuming one ... to write an editorial! Now, ordinarily, when one writes from the film capital, where I am nt present confined, one write with an attempt toward what is known here as humor. But I give full warning that what follows is to be utterly and extremely serious. So serious, that for clays I have been finding it difficult to refrain from shouting from the rooftops for Americans to run to the near- ' est picture house arid to see the newsreels of the Shanghai bombings. Murdered Children I have seen the terror on tho faces of condemned convicts in a death- house. I have seen the mangled corpses of reckless automobile drivers . . . but this is all as absolutely nothing. Those condemned convicts were sentenced, were prepared for their doom. Those nutomobilists disregarded other people's rights, took their chances, flew into death like moths into a flame find possibly they all deserved it. But the remains of these people that you see in this Shanghai newsreel . . , once they formed innocent human beings. Innocent, laughing, playing children . . . boys and girls. There in Los Angeles our sons and (laughters go to the public schools with these Chinese children . . . you see them on the streets and in the street cars and you talk with them. The little tots look like toy dolls, you want to pick them up and hug them to yourself and toss them in the air. But go and sec these Chinese children in Shanghai! For here is war! War as it is, as it will be and as it has been ... in Ethiopia, in Spain, in Manchuria. See this war and you will see that war is ghastly, horrible, incredibly insane. Not for a single moment will | you thrill to its glory ... or feel or see the remotest evidence of bravery or courage. No Defense Nor will you, if you stare at this newsreel for two minutes as I did, avoid the inevitable decision '. . . that intelligence is not the slightest defense against death from the sky in' the form of a bomb. Your shelter is shelled, fortunately you escape the falling debris . . . you want only to rush across the street to find another basement or doorway . . . but already you are the target of a machine gunner in a swooping airplane. You can't outwit a modern machine gun in a 200-mile-per-hour plane. All of this is morbid, terrifying, but it must be seen—to reali/o, to understand, to know! It must be seen in the schools and colleges, in every moving picture house available. Above all, it must Be projected in the jingoist clubs, in the swanky sanctums of the Navy Leagues, in the granite citadels of the Wall Street stockbroker*, in the luxurious mnnsions of the munitions manufacturers. But more than anywhere else . . . this horrible, ghastly newsreel of man's cruelty to man should bo shown to tho Japanese war lords, to Herr Hitler, to Signor Mussolini, and Sonor Franco, 1, for one, am certain that Purgatory contains at least this punishment fo> them . . . an eternal newsreel of their accomplishments. Edward R. Stettinius, Jr., who graduated from college at 23 and became a vice president of General Motors shortly thereafter, is made chairman of U. S. Steel at 38—-proving what a young man accomplish by grit, per- servernnce and being the son of a Morgan partner. If the nine-power conference doesn't gel going pretty soon, its functions as far as China is concerned will strangely resemble those of a coroner's jury. As soon as the geologists find out why the bottom dropped out of that western farm, they're going to try to find out why it fell out of the stock market the other day. yi/inouncenxnl The Stnf Is ntitnoftacd io, the following candidate ami merit* subject tn the action Democratic city primary ei( Tuesday, November 30: For City Attorney STEVE CARR10AN ROYCE WE1SENBEROE Ahlortnnit, Ward Thrc F.
