New York Voters Put Democracy to Work THE .changes have been rung often enough on the fact that , 1 T'amrnany Hall, for the first time in history, has taken two - lickings in a row. What needs to be examined now is the background for the phenomenon. For it is not enough merely to say that Mayor LaGurdia nis a sensational campaigner gifted with a more than ordi- ' nary large amount of political "It." Nor is it enough to bring up the fact that his candidacy bore the unofficial blessing of President Roosevelt, or to add that the people of New York had grown tired of Tammany's perennial misrule. • These things don't explain it. Tammany misrule is an • old story. National administrations before now have smiled " benignly on reform mayors, only to see them go down to de• feat. • Reform mayors before now have been good cam- ;-paignejes without profiting by it. T HE explanation must lie deeper. The very atmosphere of , politics seems to have changed. A new spirit is abroad in -' the land. The people are desperately anxious to have govern. ments that are in tune with the needs and aspirations of ordinary folk, and they are sick to death of governments that represent invisible selfish interests. How did this come about? Probably you would not be . .very far wrong if you ascribed it chiefly to the fact that the • great depression was one of the most potent educational 5n- . ,iluences in American history. J 'Before the depression New York had mayors like Hylan Vand Walker-^-and liked them very well. The "better element," ; of course, made the usual protests, but nobody listened. Like '-.every other American city, the mass of people in New York -got -just-the sort of city government they deserved. Things were booming, politicians were expected to be • a shady lot, and there was a general impression that if the , common man just stopped worrying about things his lot would ' go on improving automatically until the millennium dawned. T HEN ca,me the depression. People began to realize that progress is not an automatic 'thing, that democrcay won't work properly unless the • voters take the trouble to make it work, and that a politician • who.Vis put into.,office by selfish interests can't logically be - exbected ^o ,j,efr;ain from serving those interests, after he is ; The old •slip-shod, care-free sort 'of politics that seemed to work all right in boom times stood revealed as an unbearably .expensive.luxury in bad times. It became obvious that the ordinary man's liberties need defending, and that the ordinary man can defend them only by using his ballot wiselv. So politics is existing in an entirelv different atmosphere now than was the cast a decade ago. Once again, neonle are willing to .take the trouble to make democracy work. That is the encouraging thing about the New York election. Undermining Cancer •THE pressing need for continued research into the mystery i of cancer is amplv stated by Dr. Henrv D. Ohadwich, director of the Massachusetts Department of Health, in his assertion that the deatth rate from this dreadful malady wil continue to go higher unless research yields a cure. The _cancer death rate has been going un steadily foi vears. Eighty years ago, cancer was not one of the 10 lead- in? causes of death in the United States; today it ranks second only to heart disease. Much of this, to be sure, is due to the increase in the average life span. More people die of cancer nowadays because more neople live to the age at which cancer is likely to strike. Nevertheless, the rising cancer death rate is dis- rmving enough to indicate that research programs deserve all the support the public can give them.

"_ tWMKM.UK.KJU.^ By Olive Roberts Barton Highway to Adventure (This is the first of six articles about children's books by Olive Roberts Barton, for use during Children's Book cek, Nov. 15-21.) "Reading, The Magic Highway to Adventure" is this year's slogan for Children's Book Week. The best one yet, I think, as it is through their love of adventure that children are led to the richness of the big world of books. Interest, the key to good habits,,is the natural basis for book love. Through it. the child mny be led to self education, or knowledge of every kind and variety. How different from the ancient way of presenting too-old pr too-profound books to the boy Or girl, thereby fixing dislike for ill! reading. To describe the amazing loveliness of today's books for children would be like lip service to a sunset. Thore is only one way to appreciate, and that is to attend the feast yourself. Not necessarily to buy. but to educate yourself as to what is being done for the children. All Offer Adventure What a way we have traveled from the "Elsie Books" and the "Rover Boys." Not that they were poor, but that they were about all there were once. But then the past three or four years have revolutionized the child's library. The value of expuisito art is j recognized at last. And the field has broadened until the romance of juvenile literature is a distinct education in almost every line of informative subject. It is all adventure, for experts pr the pen, writing for today's BY MARY RAYMOND Copyright, 1937, NEA Servict, Int. CHAPTER XXV ' TT seemed strange, Alan thought, to be in New York, in America _... OK- MOBlflS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of th« American Medical Association, and of Hygeia, (he Health Magazine. 'Alligator Skin" Ailment Is Linked With Upset in Glandular Function This is the 23rd of a series in which Dr. Morris Fishbein discusses ikjn diseases. (No. 373; .._.,.„' children are bom with u skin that is dry, harsh and scaly. The con • dition is called ichthyosis because the 1 skin" Jppks lijce that of a fish. The condition is also called alligator skir or xeroderma, which merely mean hardening of the skin. • While the exact cause of the condi tion is not known, it is believed to bt associated with disturbances of the glands, particularly of the thyroid. The condition frequently appears in families. In many instances the thyroid of the child is found to be deficient in its function. In the summer the skin is moist and well lubricated In the winter, however, when thre are cold dry winds, the skin becomes rough, harsh and scaly. Fortunately, there are seldom symptoms affecting the rest of the body unless th child has so much deficiency of the thyroid action as to have the typical symptoms of that disorder. Obviously in this skin trouble it is important to make a complete study of the general condition, including especially a stuay of the basal metabolism of the patient to make certain that the thyroid gland action is not deficient. U a d«ficj«ncy is found, the doctor will ba able to supplement the action of the thyroid by prescribing suitable glandular extracts. Whenever a skin is damaged by this or any similar condition, it is important to do everything possible to get a return to the normal state. Certainly it is serious to overuse caustic soaps and water, because that will produce a secondary inflammation and a reaction which may become chronic. Except in severe cases, it is most often customary to change the bathing. After a light, warm bath (using preferably a soap containing oil like an olive oil castile soap), it is customary to grease the skin with suitable ointments. In severe cases, not even ca.stile soap is recommended for the affected areas. If the scaly condition of the skin persists, it may become necessary for the person concerned to leave a cold, irritating climate and find a temperature and a condition of the air that will keep the skin warm and moist.

Six months had passed since his hurried departure that morning. It might have been yesterday. Things were so unchanged. It was even stranger to be here In a new role. Not as a penniless young man at odds with his father, seeking a foothold in a big, strange city. But rather, as an artist returning with his father's full approval, called back by an amazing turn of fortune. "Sun Over Seville" had really been sold by the dealer this time, and to an authentic purchaser. A connoisseur of art, who had paid $5000, and then had insisted on an exhibit of Alan's pictures. And strangest of all—with the world suddenly so friendly—that there should be no thrill or happiness for him. Jill, by now, he was sure, had married Milo Montanne, and was living a luxurious life with him. During the six months he had been away, Alan had tried to put her completely out of his mind. He had told himself she was hard, unworthy, deliberately cruel. Whenever he thought of Jill's loveliness, he would remind himself of that cheap, spectacular dance to the dreadful sound of the Wedding March in one-step time. How could he think for a moment that he could love a girl who could do a thing like that! + * * tTE had reached, his destination, •* and a servant was ushering him into a room filled with beautiful art treasures, rich with color. A hand was suddenly on his shoulder. Alan turned to face the smiling dealer. "So you're back! This time here to make terms,, rather than seek them. I'm glad, to see you, my boy. I think I shall be very proud one day to say I sold your first picture hi New York. Sit down." Alan stt down. "It is scarcely believable," he said. "I £>m very anxious to meet the man who liked my picture so well. I'll be frank. I had become utterly discouraged." "I know. Artists are like that," the dealer said slowly. "I think your first unfortunate experience had something to do with it. It was misplaced kindness on the part of Miss Wentworth. Poor girl!" A chill of apprehension ran through Alan, could he mean, like that? thing to make her happy." The dealer stared. "Is it possible you don't know that her father died? His fortune was lost, and the young lady is working in a department store." "But her fiance!" Alan began. His voice shook. "Surely, he would not let her down because her father's business failed." "I'm afraid, Jeffry, that you don't understand the human heart," the dealer said 'softly, "The young man was not to blame. The papers carried the story. It seemed Jill Wentworth had become engaged to him to sqve her father's business. And after his death—the police tried to make something of a mystery out of a heart attack—Jill Wentworth asked young Montanne to release her." "What mystery! Great heavens," j Alan cried, "tell me something." i "I'm trying to tell you now,! Jeffry. There was a blow on Mr. wish you would go to them.. You'r« not used to hard work. I'm awfully worried about you." The two girls were at the breakfast table at Patty's home, "You needn't be," Jill spoke In a cheerful tone. "It's very good for me to work. Millions of other girls have to work. Why shouldn't I?" "But those millions of other girls haven't been reared as you have," Patty countered, need time to become "You strong enough to take the tough breaks." "I'm strong enough," Jill insisted. "Please don't bother, Patty. I don't know what I would have done without my job. It keeps me from thinking." "Well, you certainly haven't much time to think, with nU those frenzied females pawing over everything on the counter. Jill, I absolutely boil when I think of you behind a counter. Though, I'll bo honest—I was absolutely . Wentworth's temple, which the delighted when Barry had to go Poor girl. What speaking of Jill "I don't think Miss Wentworth Is to be pitied," Alan said stiffly. *Jt jeemg to me she has every-? police declared contributed to his death, They tried to place suspicion on the girl. But an old woman had seen her in front of an apartment on 67th street at the exact hour Mrs. Wentworth and the secretary had heard Mr. Wentworth fall. Curiously, Jeffry, it was the same apartment building where you also lived." Alan's face was white. Jill had come to him that morning. And he had been away. Then, he hud saHed for England, without knowing of her trouble. What could she have thought about his disappearance? And she had not married Milo. She had planned to, to save her father. And then when her father was dead, she had chosen to be poor rather than marry Milo. He could have shouted his joy to the world. "And now!" the old dealer said softly. "I suspect you huve forgotten all about that meeting you are to have with Mr. Fenwick this morning. You will be going to see Jill Wentworth. And isn't it fortunate that I've been keeping up with her through the newspaper stories, and am uble to tell you where she is staying?" * * * *<T WISH I could be like the opti- •*• mistic gentleman who said every day he was bettor and better," Patty said, speculative eyes j to work and he and his mother moved into a dinky little apartment. I always felt she was trying to throw suspicion on you to keep police from thinking—" "Please don't talk about it," Jill broke in, her face white. "I'm sorry, Jill. I'm no help at all," Patty said. "Gracious," Patty said, now, "there's the bell. Who could be calling on us at breakfast time? You go, Jill, while I do things to my face." Jill got up from the table and went into the small front room. She was gone quite a long time. Patty, now rouged and powdered, was giving the breakfast dishes a vigorous bath in hot suds, 'Whatever can be keeping (Jill?" Patty thought, finally. "She'll be late for work if she doesn't hurry up. And if she on Jill's wan face. "But I can't. Every day you look worse to rne. There's no need for you to bo slaving in a store downtown, when I make enough to take care of both of us. And if you won't accept help from me, there are Jack and Sylvia offering you a home. JU1, a> mqch as I'd miss you, I wants to keep that job, she'd beU ter watch the clock." She dried her hands on the dish towel and started to investigate. For a moment she stood quietly in the doorway—amazed eyes on two young people. Jill was standing near the door, close in some man's arms. He was kissing her! The young man lifted his bead at last. Patty caught her breath. Alan Jeffry! She tiptoed back to the kitchen. After another long interval, Patty walked briskly into the living room. And this time Jill's radiant face was lifted from Alan'f shoulder. "Where, may I ask, did you that?" Patty mocked, gently. "I didn't find him," Jill's hippy voice rang out. "He fomxd ME.* THE END.

Any and every book published today for children from two to twenty, comes quite nicely under the heading. Here ore some suggestions (hat should be made before the inexperienced purchaser, if you happen to have a book or two in mind, decide on a volume for Mary or Ted. Don't select one they will have to grow into. Today is today. 1 prefer a book a trifle too young than a trifle too old. Not only will the child not onjoy it particularly, but it may give him n feeling of hesitation about other books. Of course, there is no edge to e line, absolutely not.

HG'LLY WOOD.—One of the screen's better known brnls is about to break into song, and studio executives are almost as excited about it as she is. Editti Fellows is a veteran of 10 years experience in Hollywood. She has whined and sniffed her way through about 200 pictures, sometimes ending up in a blaze of sweetness and light, eometimes not. Now. in her early 'teens, she finally is being slurred in n film—"Wonder Child." It provides Ihe first opportunity for showing off her voice. For three years, Miss Fellows has been studying diligently for just such a chance, and if the advance raves means anything, other juvenile thrillers will have to mind their sharps and flats. Six songs for Edith have been worked into the script. These range from Rigoletto's "Caro Nome" to a hot item titled "Truckin' On Dawn." Also there are a Mexican number, a Negro number, and an original love ballnd. About the only thing Miss Fellows will not do is yodel, unless the oversight is corrected by the inclusion of an Alpine sequence. Main worry of Columbia executives right now is whetther audiences will believe that Miss Fellows really is doing the singing. After all, everyone knows of instances in which wolves have been dubbed in.
