Father 1 Coughlin is going back on the air. There was an underproduction of most things during the last depression, but of one thing—demagogy—there was a great glut, a superabundance that ought to have brought the good life unaided. The tubthumpers and the nation-saver? come up out of the nowhere when business indices fall, like night-crawlers coming up out of the lawn after a rain. So we might as well prepare ourselves for a new crop Whether all of the old favorites will reappear or whether we shall have some brand-new ones is not clear, just yet; but that we shall have a bumper yield of them unless business revives is as certain as anything can be. -*•*-* PROBABLY ws shall survive the experience without much Jl damage. A nation that could live through the last depression can live through anything, very likely, and what is ahead of us can hardly be worse than what we have been through. But applied demogogy is a dangerous thing, nevertheless, in this day of masspropaganda techniques. It is dangerous for the same reason that a quack doctor with a suitcase full of patent medicines in dangerous at the bedside of a man critically ill. It offers the wrong sort of remedy, and offers it at a time when people feel desperate enough to try anything. It ought to be obvious that a time of profound depression is the one time of all times when clear, unprejudiced and accurate thinking is needed. Yet that is just what the demagog does not offer; on the contrary, he offers a heavily emotional dose which makes clear thinking impossible. He calls upon people to emote their way out of their troubles. He appeals to their feelings rather than to their reasons. He can do this, in a depression, because there are so many things to get emotional about. * * * E VEN in the best of times, Heaven knows, this imperfect world is full enough of injustice and inequality; when the wheels slow down and honest men are brought face to face with hunger and want through no fault of their own, it is 10 times worse. Than the demagog has his innings. He has but to point to these crying wrongs, beat his breast passionately, damn all the constituted authorities for not doing something, and offer his own panacea. Let him rouse enough honest indignation, and he can save his panacea from critical examination; if anyone :doea criticize it, he can cry, "Ha! So you want things to go on as they are, do you?" And there is no stopping him. c No stopping him—except through the good sense of the people as a whole. In the long run, that good sense proved sufficient last time, and it probably will again. And if this recession deepens, it will once more be put to the test. Go Easy On Brazil I TNDERSECRETARY of State Sumner Welles made an ex- U cellent point in his recent speech at George Washington, 'University, when he remarked that America's "good neigh-; bor" policy in Latin-American affairs has a direct application' in the current upheaval in Brazil. This policy, Mr. Welles points out, calls on the United States to refrain from minding its neighbors' business for them. In other words, the kind of government Brazil chooses to give itself is strictly Brazil's concern, not ours, and our abhorrence of the Fascist label should not cloud the friendly relations that exist between Brazil and this country. As a matter of fact, added Mr. Welles, we may be a bit hasty in pinning the Fascist label on the Vargas regime. Not all of the facts in the matter are known, even now; and for Americans to fly into a furor over a Fascist government that may ^ot turn out to be Fascist at all is rather silly.

Quiet, Restful Atmosphere Is Urged For Convulsive Disorder Sufferers This Is the eleventh in a series in which Dr. Fishbeln discusses cause, effect and treatment of diseases of the nervous system. (No. 402; Once epilepsy is definitely diagnosed, the care given to the person concerned is of the utmost importance in regulating the number of attacks and the general health of the individual concerned. When an attack comes there may be danger to life as well as to health. Furniture and other materials should be moved so that the person in the convulsive attack will not strike himself in any manner. Biting of the tongue is usually prevented by putting a spoon or lead pencil between the teeth. Tight clothing ahouW be removed. In the period of exhaustion which follows the attack the person is best permitted to lie absolutely quiet. No attempt should be made to hasten has awakening because an activity brought about too early may cause headaches and even persistence of the exhaustion. In rteatment of this condition nowadays the doctor plans not only for the utmost in hygiene and improvement ot the diet but also avoidance of fatigue which seems to lower esistance and increase the irritability. Epileptics do best where they are not faced by exciting and irritating contracts but where life is even and smooth. They should not be exposed! to extremes of heat and cold, irritating' light effects, prolonged heat cycles, thunderstorms and similar atmospheric condition. The occupations which they choose should not be those which demand great physical labor, intense concentration, mental fatigue, emotional strain, worry or anxiety. A great deal of research has been ! done on the diet and particularly the j water balance of patients. Control I these factors seems to be important in ! lessening the number of attacks. Especially valuable are some of the new drugs which have been found to replace the bromides which used to be i the only drug available for people with this condition. i A warning should be issued, how- i ever, against those people who prey | upon the sick and who offer to sell , ''sure cures" for this condition. These cures consist invariably of strong seda- tivfc drugs, prescribed in a dosage and with a persistence far beyond that usually used by physicians familiar with the treatment of such ca.ses. A properly regulated hygiene of life, particularly in mental activities, the diet, the water intake and the rest, will do much to lessen the number of attacks in any case. in his sicle-oi-the-mouth. tough-guy manner—as ever; and his new novel, 'Serenade" (Knopf: $2.50), is well worth your while if you can stand a few shocks. In this book, Mr. Cain deals with a >roken-down grand opera singer who is on his uppers in Mexico City. Voice gone, money gone and pride gone, this man falls madly in love with a haU- areed prostitute, recovers his lost voice ay a convenient miracle, smuggles the ady back to the United States, and sets out to make a career for himself. What happens then is almost as dizzy as some of the things that happen in real life. He breaks into the movies, scores a big success, gets a Metropoli- an contract, and is presently sitting on the world, back in New York, as wealthy and as successful as a man could wish to be. Then his buried past bites back at lim. A sinister rich man who has a more-than-brotherly attachment for n comes on the scene; the hot-blooded Mexican lady picks up a bull-fighter's sword and kills the rich man— and then our singer goes down the adder as fast as he came up, fleeing with his lady love to Latin-America igain and winding up about where he started on his uppers in Mexico City. All of this Mr. Cain unreels for you with great skill, so that this becomes one of those "once I picked it up I couldn't lay it clown" books. It is fast, violent, outspoken, brutal—and, under everything, essentially romantic. Rcmance isn't necessarily a matter of honeyed speeches, moonlight and honeysuckle, and stately southern plantations. It is principally a way of looking at life; among other things, it is the ideae that the world can be well lost for love. That idea Mr. Cain expresses in this book. want a change, all blue ornaments, or i Sylvia Sidney, on the other hand,! self-conscious before the still can,- j ..11 ..it..»» ,.„ m .—« ,i. i: may be a favorite of the correspond-' **''*'• nn( ' would rather visit a dentist g ents but she's a hetulnche to the cam- than K '< for Coburn.
