A'large supply of our proteins is found in animal products and in dairy products. The proteins from all "meats, including jlhat from fish and" chickens, ducks, •and'.'bther fowl, is about of the "same ,. type. "Chemists do not find any special differences between t]ie red meat which" comes from the "cows and that which comes from the lamb. : * Notwithstanding these facts, people who are disturbed about meat do all isorts. of peculiar things. They will stop b«ef and continue to take Jamb, ' fish, and chicken. The one slight difference that exists between red meat and white meat is that red meat contains certain extractives not present in white meat. The peculiar ideas people have about ret} meat and white meat seem'to be purely notions, and nowhere in the history of dietetics is there to beifound any scentific basis for these notions. Incidentally, animal organs which are largely protein supnly in addition to''the protein many of the important factors necessary for the blood and the proper functioning of the body. By Olive Roberts Barton By Bruce Cation f, iHarvey O'Connor, who did such a * Spirited surgical job on the sainted "Andrew in his biography, "Mellon's •Millions," returns to the wars with an equally good job in a book called "£tee{—Dictator." Thi? book, as the title suggests, is an .examination of the great steel industry and its leading figures. Mr, [ O'Connor begins his tale with the rise : of Carnegie, Frjck and .Schwab in the closing years of the 19th centuryi car. -lies it through the vast era. of cartel- jzatipn begun by the elder Morgan, , and,, winds up by declaring that prir i yate control of the industry has out- I -lived its usefulness. The industry, he say?, suffers because it is largely run by men who neither know nor care much aboul • tbe making and selling of steel, bui are interested solely in the firumcia end of things,, it maintains a rigid price system, i rules its employes with feudal brutality, it wilfully jestriqfs jts output of a needed commodity; pu};:he concludes The nominal owrie^ of the 'Stee! Corporation control ribih'ing and contribute nothing. The Steel Corporation has become 3 racket fqr the nourishment of bankers, brokers, gamblers lawyers, and executives. It is no longer able td furnish work or wages suf- fjcifrnt to ^eep its employes off relief roils. "The conclusion is plain that private ownership of the Corporation has outlived any usefulness which the classical economists once postulated. .

Curiosity Dies Young • .What began with the color of leaves promised to land up in geology and Science. And in all probability from there to a discussion of astro-physips and meteorology. Or perhaps the banking system-and the way to take care of bees. One thing leads to another always in a curious child's mind. There is no end. There is always a beginning. If grown-ups were onerhundredth as curious about wprfhwbile things 35 children, they would, in n° time at alj, be as thoroughly educated as Archimedes, Euripides and Aristptje put together. •; But, alas, curio;sity dies with the.years; even twenty finds fhe bud closing. Certainly we don't educate children- They educate themselves. Oh, yes, we do our bit with pen and book, but a child of ten worth his salt will know jj dozefi times ps much about this and that as all his books tell him. Dqn't laugh at curious children. Instead, give them all you can give.

Schmidt, 200 pounds of nervous energy from Texas Christian, caught the popular fancy, not qnly with winning teams, but with his explosive manners, plain - spoken personality, and brilliant wit. The Ohio State faculty had a little difficulty getting used to Schmltly's virile hema'n language at first, but quickly accepted him as the campus, leading figure. He probably is the most popular Coach ever to hit Columbus, Players and students consider him the lost word : ih coaches. Because his clubs manufacture tremendous scores against. comparatively weak opposition ,the Ohio State strategist has been tagged "Merciless." He is very human nevertheless, and his players slave for him. Schmidt cusses his boys plenty, but they love it. The athlete . who ' gets bawled out the most has a good chance of starting the game. Schmidt gets along very well with newspapermen, but they've learned to keep n tongue in their cheek when listening to him. He's apt to change his mind from one hour to the next. week and keep your natural beauty. Dance all night, every other night if ^ou like, but on the alternate even- ngs, cream your face and get to bed >y ten.

Its driver slouched behind the wheel, a cigaret drooping from his Jlpa, hia air one o£ carefree negligence; but his eyes were alert, and bis-hands held the -wheel firmly as the car hummed along, at an even 65 miles an hour. Beside him ,sat a broad-shouldered, athletic young man In a gray suit and a Panama hat. He sat half-turned, his arm over the back of the front seat, so that he could talk to the two men In the rear. One of them was small and dapper, a felt hat pulled low over his eyes; as he raised his left hand to take a cigaret from hjs mouth It could be seen that the hand lacked the Index finger. The man beside him was burly, •with a brick-red face and sparse red hair. He stared absently at the youth In the front seat with eyes of a light, expressionless blue— pale eyes that, when you looked at them, seemed to be frighteningly cold and hard. "Once again," he said,. "you say the gas button is back at the cashier's desk?" The man In front nodded. "An 1 he can kick It without mov* Ing off his stool," said the red- haired man meditatively. "Yeah. That's it." "Okay. I'll take care of him. Shorty waits at the wheel, Wingy comes with me—you say you got to do the covering, outside, Oklahoma?" . The man In the front seat nodded again. . "Yeah. They got me too wel} spotted when I cased the joint" * » » T HE red-haired man frowned, slightly. "We could use you In. side," he said. "I'm just telling you," said the man In front, "I'm not gojng In that bank. See?" There was a brief silence. "Okay," said the red-haired man, ftt last. "You'll be on the steps, then." The other patted a sub-machine gun which lay in his lap, and nodded^ "With Annie," he said, The car came up a low rise, Swung to the left, and came to the outskirts of a little town- The driver eased Us speed down to a sedate 25, and the car slid silently down a tree-lined street, past white bouses that drowsed amid shaded lawns. The curb before the bant: was vacant and the car unostentatiously drew up to a halt beside It. The driver did not ebut the motor off; instead he simply shitted into low gear, kept his foot on the cltitcli pedal, and lolled behind the wheel in the deceptively careless mariner which seemed to be his unvarying habit. The doors of the car opened.' Tlu- two men in the back seat got put first; the red-haired man kept 'one- hand In bis coat pocket; and' the smaller one folded his arms' to carry n large, ungainly something under- uf» coat. They looked- casually up and down the street' ant) walked into the bank, the red- haired man in the lead. Then the broad-shouldered youth In the from seat walked up the steps and stood by the door, a sub-machine gun in his hands, .; * ' * * ' • T~iHE bank was quiet and peace•*• ful, Inside. Mr. Hobart, back at the cashier's cage, was counting out a thin sheaf of bills to a farmer; he looked up and smiled a dry, banker's smile as the farmer pocketed the money and stepped away, and saw a burly man with red hair striding toward him. This man wasted no moves. Halfway across the lobby be took his right hand from his pocket. It came out holding a .45 automatic, whose blue-steel finish glinted softly in the dim light. Mr. Hobart stared at it, his eyes wide open. Before the first shock of surprise had passed he thought, with a flood of relief, of the tear gas installation, and prepared to reach out With one foot and touch the button that would release the gas. But the red-haired man was ahead of him. In the fraction of a second that Mr. Hobart was tightening his leg muscles to move his foot the 18 inches to the gas button, the man leveled his pistol and fired. In the ordered quiet of the littlo bank the crash of the automatic was like the explosion of a 10-inch shell. Mr. Hobart spun half around and gently sank to the floor, oblivious to guns, tear gas and everything else, A stenographer, who was clicking a typewriter a dozen feet away, gave a frightened little scream and looked up with a face as white as milk, her hands frozen to her typewriter, Mr, Dunn, president of the bank, opened the door to his private office and came into the lobby^-tQ finqj a dapper little man confronting him with a vicious-looking submachine gun. Mr. Dunn backed against the wall, his hands in the air. A moment later the stenographer and the farmer Joined him there, while the little man with the gun smiled evilly and gently swung his gun back and forth so that its ugly muzzle pointed at one after another in turn. The reej-baired man had gone behind the grille. He cast a contemptuous glance into Mr. Hobart's cage, saw Mr. Hobart lying motionless in a pool of blood, and mo- Uoned with his automatic for the young clerk to open the safe. "Step on it," said the red-haired man harshly. "I haven't got all day." He grinned, a, wintry, sleety grin that did not extend to those pale eyes, and added, ''I got an engagement down the road that I'm especially anxious not to miss." The fumbling clerk swung the door So far everything had gone off on schedule. The cashier had be/>n shot down before he could touch pit the tear gas. The others were lined up against the wall, helpless. The, clerk was obediently stuffing currency and securities Into an empty flour sack that the red- haired man had tossed to him. The athletic young man they called "Oklahoma" was out in front, cow- ins chance passers-by with a submachine gun. The automobile was waiting, its motor humming silently. • . ' ' - - T»UT there was one thing the gangsters had overlooked. Across the street and half a block down there was a four-story brick building; and what the gangsters did not know was that tho fourth floor of this building had t/oon given over to tho American Legion for club rooms, and that Buddy McGlnnis. a war veteran whose right leg wns under tho ground somewhere near Montfaucon. had chosen this mornlns to he up there performinR his functions as adjutant of the post. Everything would have been all right if Buddy McGinnis had not happened to feel the need of fresh air Just at the moment that the bandits' car h» driven up. For this reason, he was lounging in a chair by an open window when the holdup men wont into the hank; and in the course of 20 seconds or so he chanced to glance toward the bank nnd seo n man standing on the stops with a sub-machine gun in his hands. Buddy took a lonpr, unbelieving look; then ho nodded his hend once, slowly, grimly, and stumped across tho room to a glass case bo- hind which a dozen Springfield rifles stood in a long rack. He seized ono of these guns, Htumpcd to a small closet, nnd gut out a clip of cartridges. Buddy had not been the best shot in his company, or tho second-best either, and It was years since he had fired a gun; but ho took careful aim, waited until the blue silk necktie of the man with the machine gun rested just on top ot his front sight, and then squeezed the trigger, Oklahoma spun partly around, just as Mr. Ilnbart had done. His right hand let go of the gun and reached out for support, coming to rest on the plate glass window of the bank. For a few seconds he was poised there, swaying slightly, a pained and incomprehending look on his face. Buddy McGinnis watched and waited for him to fall. But he did not fall. Buddy's aim had not been quite good enough— which made all the difference in the world. The bullet had punctured Oklahoma's shoulder without touching a bone; and once the first shock of its impact was past he was able to stand unaided, his feet far apart and his knees bent, lift his weapon with both hands, and spray a stream of bullets at the window where Buddy McGinnis was kneeling. McGinnis bad time for one more snot as be saw the machine gun being raised. It spattered against the wall of the bank; then the war veteran ducked out ot sight, while 20 bullets went zipping through the open window, kicking up little splinters from the sill and knocking plaster down from the ceiling. And then the town's one policeman, hearing this uproar, came running down the street, tugging at bis revolver as he ran. _•) _j, • .{To *e CouUuuea). - -Frauds Sduiiidt Called by telephone to give a starting lineup for an official program, Schmidt named 19 men. For awhile, Mrs. Schmidt forbade the Ohio State mentor to drive the family car. There was danger of him wrapping himself and the bus around a telephone pole while jotting down a new play in an ever-present notebook. Coach Schmidt Devotes 18 Hours a Day to Football Schmidt, a driver from away back who works 18 hours a day, cotinually thinks and talks football. He usually works in his office in his shirt sleeves. He welcomes visitors, but even though he's met them time and time again, he doesn't remember their names. Schmidt has pet names for most of his boys, such as Bobo, Bozo, Leatherhead, and Oil Can. He never runs out of nicknames or wisecracks. Schmidt refuses to wear a topcoat while sitting on the bench during a game. He claims that he never notices the cold during the heat of battle. Schmidt whistles shrilly to attract the boys' attention on the practice field Although his style of play is as wide open as the Texas plains, where his teams formerly roamed, he has a mania to "keep the ball on the ground, dammit!" Schmide usually forgets appointments. A born salesman and after-dinner speaker, Schmidt could hire out to speak every night of the week throughout the year. His age seems to be a delicate subject with Schmidt, but. he's 49 or 50. He was a star halfback at Nebraska in 1904 and '05. He was graduated from the law school there, but does not practice. He wears only bow ties. Basketball Knowledge Asset to Buckeye BOSS Schmidt's first coaching assignment of any importance was at the University of Tulsa, where he lost cue game in the last four seasons of a five-year reign before and after the war. He left Tulsa for Arkansas, where he had the reputation of getting the most out of nis material for seven campaigns. With less talent than larger rivals, Schmidt won two Southwest Conference championships, tied for the title once, and finished second and third in five years at Texas Christian. The headman of the Buckeyes has been even more successful in basketball than he has in football. Football going basketball was right down Schmidt's alley. His knowledge of the hoop game no doubt played a big part in his developing, in less than two seasons, the finest set of ball handlers that such veteran and skillful exponents of the razzle dazzle as Bab Zuppke and Bo McMillin ever saw. The huge stadium at Columbus demanded a show. Schmidt gave Ohio State- one, and a mightly football machine as well. §.> ; SMt#?- ,.- ..;4 .'Yfff''--~ •'" ','/?>'>';''••.• te''.:.^'*' '• '".,-,:-•>''.•.''"
