Had Conscience as Dollar Diplomat "THERE may not seem to be much connection between a 1 crowd of angry U. S. marines wrecking a newspaper office in Nicaragua and a calm discussion of the problem of imperialism in the modern world. But a cablegram from Central America linked the two very neatly, the other day. and pro-vided a little nourishing food for thought. Away back in 1922, or thereabouts, our marines were stationed in Nicaragua. A stout Nicaraguan patriot, Dr. Buitrago Diaz, objected bitterly. In his newspaper, the Tribuna, at Managua, he put the marines on the pan and said contemptuously that they were unfit for the companionship of the wome nof Nicaragua. Some of the marines could read Spanish. So one day a bunch of the lads got together and made a raid on the Tribune's offices wrecking them with a hearty thoroughness such as only infuriated marines can achieve. And the wind-up of the story came just the other day, when a United States Treasury check covering the damages was handed to Dr. Diaz. -K * * W ELL, so what? Does that prove anything in particular, except that Uncle Sam does pay his bills if you give him time enough? You can appreciate the story best if you reflect on the things that have been said about America's land-grabbing exploits. . - In the last few years Americans have waxed indignant . about Mussolini's seizure of Ethiopia, Japan's attack on China, and so on—and have been told that they had no right to throw stones because Uncle Sam himself expanded his territorial holdings by force, with Latin-Americans, Indians and other luckless people paying the freight. But there is a little difference there, somehow, and this Nicaraguan story does illustrate it. Clumsily, often tardily, generally somewhat inadequately, this country has made an effort to redress the balance. The, marines are out of Nicaragua now, the country is free and independent—and even a minor bit of "aggression" like the mob scene in the newspaper office is at last paid for by the U. S. Treasury. Mexico did get the cash of the Gadsden purchase—and two decades later, got the French lifted off her neck by orders from Washington. Spain did get a lump sum for the Philippines, and Cuba actually did go free. The government has scent some millions of dollars caring for the dispossessed Indians. Alaska was acquired bv straight purchase. The old marines-have-landed era of "dollar diplomacy" did finally end. * * * "THAT record could be a great deal better—but it could also be 1 a on-sat deal worse. It is not exactly the sort of record a greedy and ruthless people would make. Greed is in it, of course—but it is tempered by conscience, after all. Foreign militarists engaged in stealing the lands of weaker peoples will have to look a little farther to find justi- j fication for their actions.

By Olive Roberts Barton Well-Rounded Existence Makes Child Happiest 'Happiness is the magic of all life. Children grow in strength and ability when they are happy. It is the first requisite of all growing things, and the last if normal effort and kindliness are to flourish. We often mistake thrill and excitement for happiness, however. The parent may believe that loading the little boy or girl with possessions takes the place of mental joy and capacity for real life. Such a child may be lonely or unhappy in a way never dreamed of by his poorerer neighbors. He may live in a home where bitter words are exchanged, and suffer from the repercussions of family strife. •. Naturally the child compares his possessions to those of his friends, but he will get used to the fact that his bicycle is not the latest model or his sled has lost its paint. He also subconsciously notices the contrast between his own belongings and those cf other children who have less than he has. It works both ways and this is good for him. Need Boost For Self-Respect When I speak of happiness in the home, I mean jollity, energy, a wholesome work-and-play state of affairs that makes the perfect background for content. The lazy child, or one let off continually from responsibility, is really starved for something that boosts tiis self-respect. Each child should be given a place, not too hard, in family welfare. My recipe for happiness is simple. First, friends who are real friends. Next, work and play that give mus- cles a chance to show what they are made of. Work palls and so does play, but the two together make an unbeatable team. Children need more play than work, but they need to have the feeling of genuine usefulness, as well as "work habit," if they are to be really proud and happy. They will storm and fuss sometimes, but just put such a child on the "blacklist" and divide all his share of home errands and chores purposely among his brothel's and sisters, and he will suffer keenly. It is punishment with a vengeance. Jollity Is Stimulating Third, every child nedes to laugh and have a lot of fun. Families should be jollier, on the whole. Laughter at someone's expense, is not on this list, although every child should learn to be a sport and take a little ribbing, especially if he loves a joke on the others. Thrill is being entertained without effort, that is. most thrill is. This type of excitement is valuable, but it loses its charm more quickly than the ecstacy of creating one's own adventure. Nothing gives the child as much satisfaction" as providing his own goals at play. This is why it is wholesome for him to go in for games, sports and hobbies. Interest is the thing that keeps happiness and energy alive. Hobbies provide a dozen interests. Encourage the child in his hobbies and watch results. Besides contributing to happiness, they create better dispositions, greater application and are a means of enlarging his world. Films' Master Fencer Knows the Fine Points of a Sword Still in the Red THE difficulties which meet an administration that tries to 1 balance its budp-et in a time of increasing industrial stagnation are amnlv illustrated by the announcement at Washington that a $23.000,000-a-month increase in WPA spending has hpen ordered, to cope with unemployment. Twenty-three millions a month constitute heavy spending, even in a government like ours. Since relief expenditures have been one of the main reasons for the unbalanced budget, it is hard to see how the budget-balancing act is going to be accomplished when relief costs fire going un at that rate. Yet what is to be done? The need exists. Unemployment is indisputably on the rise. Something has to be done, and the federal government is the only agency that can do it. In the lone 1 run, a balanced budget must wait on full business revival. Until that revival comes, ccovernment accountants will have to keep the jug of red ink handy. •BFB 1* *9 i*% m The Family Doctor f. K. T7. OK By PK.

Stuly of Patient May Reveal Basic Cause of a Nervous Breakdown Case This is the second in a series af tlve articles In which Dr. Fishbein discusses cause, effect and treatment cf Nervous Breakdown. (No. 405) The first step in any nervous breakdown is to ascertain the exact nature of the condition. Every possible physical disturbance should be investigated. If the throid gland, or any of the other glands of the body is overactive, that execass activity may be associated with the excess strain. Sometimes a minor disturbance of the heart or of the stomach and intestines become sthe physical disease on whjch the mental state of the depressed person is fixed. Many women who have abdominal operations or difficulties in childbirth and who suffer with disturbed action of the intestines, or from "adhensions," fix their minds on such difficulties. In some families, members incline to brsak down rather early in life. Whether this is associated with some internal weakness of physical structure, or whether U represents an intensified reaction of one or more members of the family OR the others, is <t matter for study. Determination ol the causes for a j nervous breakdown may involve a j study of the complete life of the person concerned from childhood onward. Indeed, certain psychologists in- I sist that the causes may be sought in I happenings even before the person 1 was born. A record of an exceedingly difficult childhood or of severe malnutri- lion in the expectant mother may show itself eventually in nervous i breakdown. During childhood and early years, improper feeding and ! malnutrition may so injure the body j structure as to reveal itself in serious i disturbances later. Infectious diseases sometimes leave an aftermath of weakness and permanent damage to all the tissues. Chronic poisonings from various industrial poisons, from the use of alcohol or narcotics, also yeild a considerable number of cases. A search of the environment of the patient may show unsuitable education both at home and in school. There- may be emotional upheavals brought about by domestic incompatibility, by oppression at work, by sudden loss of money or position, or by the deaths of those who are loved. There are also j other conditins which may bring about anxiety, discontent or dissatisfaction. Typically, if the case concera» a married woman of advanced years, she HOLLYWOOD.—Most of the fencing you see in the movies is staged, directed and often performed by a lithe, middle-aged, middle-sized Belgian named Frederic Cavens. Since 1919 he has been coaching Hollywood's swashbucklers in the use of the foil, epee, saber, rapier and broadsword. "Because it is my business, there is no kind of fencing I do not know about," said Cavens. "You take the Japanese 'kendu,' for instance: I am net a master of that kind of business, but I could put on a convincing routine." Cavens directed the sword work and quarterstaff duels in the silent, Douglas Fairbanks version of "Robin Hood" in 1922. Now he's doing the same thing in the 1938 poduction starring Errol Flynn, Never Lost He is a graduate of the Royal Military Academy of Belgium, and was fencing master there for a couple of years. Also studied under some of the masters in Paris. He has fought three formal duels. These were not desperate life-and-death affairs, he explained cleprecatingly, but merely were tho results of bitter arguments with other masters. Cavens never lost an argument. Only wound he ever received, he said, was once when he was trying to teach one of his advanced pupils not to be so cocky. The pupil lashed out in a panic and laid the teacher's cheek open. The senior Fairbanks, though a fine showman and stunt man, was not well grounded in tho fine points of fencing. John Barrymore was pretty fair in the elays when he made "Don Juan." Errol Flynn is quite good; better than Fairbanks, anyway. But Basil Rathbone—uh, there's a swordsman! Preparing for "Romeo and Juliet" (a picture, incidentally, for which Cavens designed all the swords anel daggers) Rathbone fenced three hours daily for weeks. And he was no novice when he began. Afterward he became u private oupil of M. Cavons and still is taking lessons. Nobody doubles for Rathbone in a flicker duel, but much of the. fencing supposed to be done by other players actually is the work of rpofessionals. I happen to know that Cavens and his ion, Albert, doubled for Charles Boyer and Maurice Murphy in the fencing sequence in "Tovarich." Mindful of movie secrets, the teacher wouldn't admit specific jobs of doubling, but he justified the practice by pointing out that it's downright impossible for the average actor to handle a foil in a way that would fool an may say "I feel so depressed I just don't k:ww what to do. There is really no reason for it. I have a good husband and a good home. The children are just fine. There is really nothing to worry about." And then she bursts into tears! Obviously she is just as ill as if she had a physical disorder. The treatment may be even more difficult than that of a physical disorder. NEXT: Stress of work iji nervous audience. He Has Pull Also attached to the "Robin Hood" company is another specialist in unusual weapons—Howard Hill, tho arch- ej-y expert. He makes a good living with his bows and arrows, and has a lot of fun. Sells equipment, makes sports films, and takes odd jobs of technical directing such as his current assignment. Hill not only coaches all the other archers, but dons a costume now and then and makes the particularly difficult and dangerous shots. In one scene he may be fighting for Robin Hood and in the next for Prince John. Tall, dark and handsome, he's a fine figure in tights and jerkin. Tremendously powerful, he can pull a 172- pound bow (that means pounds of pull, not the weight of the weapon). He hunts win a 115-pound bow and j has killed every kind of gume in North America—from moose and bear to quail and rabbits—except cougar. Cougar would be a cinch, hut he just hasn't seen one yet. Wild boar aer the best sport, he says, because they're generally charging when you get 'em. Of course he's no great threat to a flying quail, but declares he can get a grouse or prairie hen on the wing at 25 yards, once in three shots. Right now Hill is experimenting with equipment with which he hopes to bag a rhineoceros. He has an arrow that will penetrate three thick- nesses of automobile tires, and figures maybe that will do the trick.

The broadcast grew more lyric: "Now Captain Trent's teeth aie flashing as he smiles and waves to a friend who has just eall»i something to him."

Captain Trent, sir, won't you just step up and tell the radio audience something about yourself and yotir plans?" Then Barry, himself, apparently at some distance from the transmitter—half impatient, half bantering, utterly unaware, clearly, that his voice was plainly audible to thousands of listeners: "Say, what elo you think this is, the man-on-lhe-street hour?" And a giggle from the crowd. Old Miranda chuckled grimly. The announcer a g a i n: "Of course we realize, sir, that you are very busy, but surely you can say a few words for us." And Barry again, laughing, still supremely unconscious of his unseen public: "Only that I hope some of those sandwiches in the cockpit are not ham." It was all too brief. Almost immediately there was the roar of a great motor, a cheer from the crowd, and the announcer's voice shouting, "He's oif! A magnificent take-oft'!" As I.nda started to speak, old Miranda put up her band for si- Ifciice. There w;is to be. more, it :.ccnu'd. "And now," the announcer wr.s going on, "before- we close our broadcast, we have here a friend oi Captain Trent-—a vu-y lovely lady who, report has It—but we won't go into that now. . . . Anyhow, she wants to speed Cuptain Trent with a few words. Wa hope, for his sake, that he'y listen* iug." (To Bu t'c:Umue ? ) "TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN" Mr. T. T.
