Ability Not Limited by Class or Creed Y OU could preach a pretty little sermon, if you cared to. on the fact that the newspapers announced on the same day two industri.il promotions—one in America, the other in - Soviet Russia—-which were remarkably similar. * In America, John Holmes was made president of the » packing house of Swift and Co. He is the first man not named ! Svtfift'to become president of the company: he entered the firm . in 1906 as a messenger boy, and worked his way to the top . . in,the traditional way. - •"•-' In Russia, a good-looking- young woman named Tatiana 1 Morozova became head of the Soviet Cosmetic Trust, replacing *• Mrte. Vyacheslaff Molotof f. wife of the Soviet premier. Mme. ^ Morozova is the daughter of a Moscow day laborer, and strat- "e'd.pu.t as a floor-sweeper and box-heaver at the age of 14. :,,'"'"' , * * * S O WE have a neat little parallel—-up from the bottom, in -'•both cases; and you might go on to say that Russian industry and American industry are sisters under the skin in that they reward merit where they find it. But the thing goes a little deeper than that. For what "this coincidence really means is that well-run organizations in any land—Communist Russia, capitalistic America, or wher- t "e,ver—have sense enough not to build up a hereditary caste ^••system, an aristocracy of birth. They bring their leaders up ,^'from the bottom,simply because that is one way to get good /•leaders. America has ,no copyright on the rags-to-riches story. * The willingness to accept -new blood, to reward ability where •- -it is found and to give it a chance to exert itself, is simply the ,-price of survival. You might notice that the two great European nations which stand as the very denial of democracy— .^Germany and Italy—are today governed, respectively, -by a • former house painter and by the son of a village blacksmith. .v-" And, indeed, this up-from-the-bottom business has noth- - .'ing to do with democracy. It simply means that the people who ^T,un' things recognize that there is no substitute for ability, "-and that you have to take ability where you find it. If ability "I^appens to be lodged in the boss's son, well and good; if not, r fook for it elsewhere. -a" There have been a few societies which ignored this principle; one and all, they crack up. The England of George Ill's 'Jd.ay entrusted government and armies to well-born nincom- >'--poops—-and lost the American colonies. The Prance of the ..same era did the same—and would up with a revolution and -a Nepoleon. Cvarist Russia had the same habit, and no one needs to be reminded what came of it, • ; For this is the one aristocracy which no society can ig- ".norej .the aristocracy of ability. Sooner or later, the able ; -man will find his way to a position which lets him use his t •abilities to the full. If he is kept from finding his way, he is hot the chief sufferer society is. Real Love and Ego PRESIDENT William Allan Neilson of Smith College thinks JT that sacred and holy mother love can be a good deal less . admirable than it is commonly supposed to be. Addressing a meeting of Smith College alumnae in New York. Dr. Neilson declared that "nine times out of ten, mother 7 love is nothing but self love." Pie explained it like this : Mothers want their daughters to "do well" in school so .that credit will be reflected on themselves. They plan their 'daughters' careers with that, rather than the daughters' well-being, in mind. They send their girls to college—and immediately inquire how often the girls can leave college and come home, away from the great opportunities which college 'Ufe holds out. \ The mothers, of course, might have a good deal to say in rebuttal. But the criticism is a good one to ponder over— as a reminder that self-interest is so universal a human trait that it can color even the highest and noblest of emotions. By OK. STORMS F1SHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of , the Health Magazine. Skin Burrowing Mite One of the Oldest Known Parasites of Human Body This is the first of a scries in which Dr. Flshbein discusses insect pests an4 parasites which cause discomfort to humans. (No. 'J8G) Insects which disturb the human body are of several varieties, including those which live a parasitic existence upon the body and next those which bite, scratch or in other ways disturb the health of the human being. Probably the parasite with the longest scientific history is the itch mite or Acarus scabiei. This parasite has been Itnown for jnore than 100 years and probably troubled human beings long before it was first identified. The condition that it causes is commonly known as the itch, also called the seven-year itch, the Cuban itch, and other less complimentary naraes. This little mite whiph causes scabies burrows into the human skin in order to lay eggs. Worst symptom is the itching, which is always wprse at night. The organism usually is found in the thin skin between the fingers, on the inside of the wrists, under the arms and on the lower portions of the abdomen. Seldom are the lesions seen on the face. Usually the condition does not spread beyond the areas mentioned, but in p#opte who axe not particulaly careful aborjt faftthing and dressing, the condition may spread to any portion of the body. The organism was discovered about 250 years ago by an Italian. Occasionally the condition is transmitted through an animal and there have been cases in which people became infected from playing with a pony, a dog, a cat and in one instance a camel. Cases are reported in which the itch mile has gotten into the effects of theatrical or operatic companies and gradually infected the entire company. Fortunately, medical science has discovered ways of controlling this condition, particularly with substances which will destroy the parasite. It is necessary, however, to get the drug to the parasite. Usually the skin is thoroughly washed with soap and warm water (using a fairly stiff brush), after which the i-ernedy that the doctor prescribes may be applied. The ointments usually contain sulphur but since the skins of different people vary, the exact amount tf sulphur desirable must be prescribed in each instance. The ointment is left on overnight. Next day a second warm soapy bath is taken and all the underclothing is changed. In general, old underclothing and bed linen once Infected should be boiled or destroyed. H may be necessary to rej*£t this procedure three or four nights in a row before the parasites M* entirely eliminated.

MullNMU NcreuniM* CHAPTER XIII "CTAND STILL! Stand abso- ° lutely still!" Robert Barry roared the command like an army major. When the lantern dropped and Mary Melissa had screamed, the two of them had biim on the brink of a subterranean cliff. Bob didn't kdovv just how high it was, but he knew it was dangerous. If 'Lisna moved carelessly in her fright .instant tragedy might result. "li's al) right!" he calmed her. "SttJid where you are, and I'll come to you." They had been 15 feet or so apart. Carefully iie Telt his way through the darkness, talking in soothing tones "Oh-h-h-h, I don't know h-how I could have done that!" She trembled when he finally touched her. "No matter, 'Lissa. Accidents happen to anybody. I should have held the lantern. It was my job, not yours. But there's no harm done. We have others in camp, you know. Five, all together, and plenty of gasoline for them." She was still trembling, and his arm went around aer waist. There in the blackness she felt so utteyly little. He held her tight to him, in both arms, petting and comforting her as best he could. In a moment she had her composure again. "All right?" His voice had his old smile in it. "Yes, thank you, Bob. But it's the worst fright I ever had." "Shouldn't wonder. Now we'll take the candles and go back out." "You ,'iave candles?" She was both surprised and delighted. "Yes. But—" He didn't complete his answer. Sudden fear chilled him! * * * V"K5, he had brought candles, in •*' his shoulder pack. But—he rmd forgotten to put the pack back on when they had; halted a While ago to rest! The thought almost appalled him. "Easy now," he calmed himself. This was a new danger, but maybe luck would hold. He could go back to that pack in Darkness —maybe! Maybe! But he couldn't. And of course he soon had to admit their real plight. He had collected his wits by this time, and tried to speak Hghtly of it. She didn't answer for a moment or two, then— "B^b, I'm not frightened now. At .cast I am no longer nervous about it. But you aren't' fooling. We're in a predicament, aren't we?" He reached out to pat her hand in the darkness. "Yes," he admitted, huskily, "we are." She said nothing else then. She merely waited. "Mary Melissa, I am the masterpiece among fools. I could choke myself with satisfaction." He was not funning about it. He was, rather, in deep despair, condemning himself in all seriousness. "I won't ask forgivenness," he resumed, ''for I don't cleaervj it, I'm going to try my damndest to get us out of here, but you ought to hate me forever, even if I do. I almost wrecked our expedition plans by swinging from that rope in my haste that day. I can think, but I think sketchily. I am not —not dependable. I'm sorry, and I—" "Bob!" She squeezed his arm. "Hush it! You are no worse than I. Not as bad. You've been wonderful, all the way through. From the very day I surprised you at Blanco Canyon, when you were expecting a man. "Bob, I know it wasn't fair to ask you to bring a silly girl orj a scientific expedition like this. But you did, and I love—I like you tremendously for it, for being a great sport. I admit we are in a jam now, but we're still alive, aren't we—partner?" * * * H ER voice had been soft, liquid. Ther£ was no fright evident, no accusation, nothing but sincerity. It brought a lump of pride for her in Bob Barry's throat. What a girl! He had a sudden mental vision of her beauty, too, and he was almost overcome .vith emotion, in his sudden wholehearted admiration of her. She hadn't cried, or whimpered, or sniveled. Instead, she had actually comforted him! In the utter darkness there be threw up his chin, a bit embarrassed with himself, and laughed a little in new confidence. "The pack," he stated, "ought to be back this way." They moved at snail pace. Often they crawled on hands and knees, to avoid slipping and falling, also to make feeling with their hands easier. They must— simply must—locate that pack. "I have a bar of chocolate," he announced, after they bad crawled for what seemed hours, "You must be hungry." "Not ;it all!" she lied. She knev/ that chocolate might be doubly precious later. "I couldn't eat now." lie put it lack in his pocket. They sat still to rest again, holding hands. He tried to think of some way to make artificial light. But these rocks were not flint. And all they had for tinder would be their clothing. He squeezed her hand, and they began to crawl again. * * * T'HEY hoped against hope, and it •*• was iruiuess. Their se?rch continued lor what must have been several hours. Each stop for rest made them realize the immensity of the great cavern. They had lost all sense of direction. "Keep your chin up, kid," he said once, softly. "I feel fine," she declared. To prove it she sang a little, and they both laughed. It helped. "I think the thing to do is take it easy, and conserve the chocolate bar," he announced. "The others will of course start looking for us in a few hours, and have the laugh on us for the rest of the trip." She laughed, to show confidence, But she didn't feel confident. 'Lissa remembered, and Bob re^ membered, that only Honey Bee Girl knew of the cave at all. And she had been emphatically or* dered not to tell, not to follow. Being a loyal servant, she probably would obey orders, even if they were gone a week or more. She would be ju£ that stupid, they knew. And besides, they had told her they were fully provisioned for as long a stay as necessary. She snuggled a bit, just for the comfort of being nearer him. He pijt his arm u round her shoulders and held her close. "Do you mind," he murmured softly, intently, "if I kiss you?" * "•Please do," she whispered.
