Gunboats Taunt War Gods in China I F' you will dig out your atlas, you will learn that the city of Nanking is upwards of 100 miles up the Yangtze river. Having acquired that fact, you may next wonder just what an American man-of-war was doing 1 that far in the interior of a supposedly independent nation with which America has friendly but quite neutral relations. Your wonder miprht be increased slightly by the fact that that independent nation is now up to its neck in a full-dress. war with another nation, with which our country also ha? friendly but neutral relations. The American gunboat Panay, sunk by Japanese bomb? sorne 25 miles upstream from Nanking, was a long, long way from home when the accident happened. It was right in the middle of a lot of trouble. The Japanese were shooting al practically everything in the river. A foreign vessel wandering around in those parts did so at its own peril. * + * Now it is perfectly true that the Panay was up there to rescue American nationals and to render what protection it sou Id to American property. It is also true that a treaty signed in 1858 gives American and other warships the right to patrol the river for the suppression of piracy, banditry and so on. They frequently offer protection to the Chinese as well as the westerners. But these times are different. It is war, not piracy, that is troubling the Yangtze these days. A natio nthat wants to stay out of trouble might well keep its ship out of waters where trouble is brewing. Suppose a British warship had gone up the Mississippi river in the fall of 1862 or the spring of 1863, bent on res- cuin gcertain British citizens and protecting British investments in Vicksburg. Suppose it had been cruising up and down the river before Visksburg at the time. That cruiser would have been hit, sooner or later, for the air. along the Vicksburg waterfront was full of shells most of the time in those days. Presumably it would have gone to the bottom. Would the British have been justified in going into a furor of indignation against the side that fired the shells? Would not the proper retort have been that Vicksburg was a long way from the high seas, that a war was going on in Mississippi and a nation which didn't want its warships mistreated ought to keep them out of the river entirely? Much the same sort of thing applies to us in China. We might have ample warning of the trouble there. Might it not be smart for us to get our warships out of there ? * * * We have learned something in the last generation. In 1898 a somewhat similar incident put us straight into a war. We are reacting differently now. We are not urging ourselves to "Remember the Panay" the way we once remembered the Maine. But the danger remains. Every tragedy like this of the Panay increases by at least a little the possibility of our getting involved in this war. We don't want to get involved in it. We can't figure out our interests in China are worth a war. So why not get our warships away before it i.s too lat»? ' + * * Audience Etiquet THE good people of Pittsburgh got a slight jolt the other 1 day when Serge Koussevitski, conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, stopped his nlavers in the middle of a number and strode indignatly off the stage, because late comers were bustling into their seats while the music was being played. This probably was a disnlay of fhe much-talked-of artisitic temperament: but it was also a richly-deserved rebuke for tho tardy, and if more performers would show the same sort of temperament the lot of the average concert-goer would be much more pleasant. The starting time of any concert is always announced in advance. If a patron can't get there in time it is up to him to stand and wait until there i.s an intermission before hunt- iner for his seat. By barging in while the music is beine- played he makes an unmitigated nuisance of himself. Mr. Kousse- vitski did a good job in dramatizing the annoyance that the tardy arrival causes. NOT SO UJNG AGO — Cocorrlcht, IMT, MA work on account of slight causes than did those who were notvnervous. In any industry, iu'is important to lave workers-temperamentally adjusted to their jobs. In this way tne greatest output may be obtained with greatest satisfaction to both employer and employe.

NEXT: Types of neurotics. Doubts, Fears, Obsessions Disturb Mental Health of Neurotic Patient This is the fourth In a series in Which Dr. Fishbcln discusses cau.se, effect and (rcqtmcnt in cases of Nervous Breakdown. (No. <I07) ' Followers of modern psychologic ideas characterize the psychasteids, who are marked by an easily fatigued mind, as sufferers from a "compusion neurosis," as doubts, fears and obsession trouble the mind of the patients. Consider the mental attitudes of two workers who have been called "on the carpet" for an interview in the head office. One prepares for the worst. He knocks on the door timidly, and walks in with his knees shaking.. He is licked before he starts, ".'wo forpt^h dictators have their audience rooms arranged so that the visitor will have to walk a long way across the floor By Olive Roberts Barton Twins Are Twice As Interesting to Watch, Too Twins arc always interesting.

This week I talked ti> the mother of twin buys, hvi'lvr years old. I asked if tht-MV was a difference, in disposition. She said yes. there was, that Thomas was more sensitive (him Timothy. Or maybe the other way around. "But." she added, "then 1 is a peculiar affinity between the two of them.

Timid people are ready for the worst before the first syllable is spoken. The person with confidence in himself and in his work may feel a slight apprehenson at first. In the nature of being keyed up. The moment the first word is spoken, he finds he is quite capable of taking care of himself. Psychologists have classified neurotics in various ways. There is' the neurotic who is submissive, resigned and placid, because he finds the world too hard. He desires security, refuge, and lack of responsibility without loss of respect. These people sometimes develop disturbances of digestion which give them a quite comfortable or mild invalidism. With this, they obtain a certain amount of fn edom from responsibility and slriifiKlc with the world. Sometimes these people develop different types iif complaints svmbolmn); mi ntal difficulty, fear or frustration. Fsycroanalysts say that a woman who fears constantly that her hushaiul may throw away all his money may. as n result, develop serious constipation. Aiu.thc'r type- of ncuroatic may be driving and ostentatious because he has found that through illness he may maintain the "upper hand" in his I household. A persons confronted with | a situation that i.s too intu'h for him.' may solve hi.s difficulties by retreat j into chronic invalidism. Many Mich j people have altel tiatinj; periods of de-i pression and restlessness so.that their i character:; may seem excci-'diimly tin- \ stable. Early detection ami understanding of every case of nervous instability is important so that proper mental hygiene may be practiced promptly. This may mean the difcrcnce bctwen recovery and complete mental break- j down. As worries accumulate, hours and lours of sleep may be lost. Furthermore, people affected are usually those jcyond middle age. They do not have .he powers of recuperation of younger persons. Beware The Cough From a common cold That Hangs On By ELINORE COWAN STONE Copyright, 1937, NEA Service, Inc. NEXT: Treatment in nervous breakdown. No matter how many medicines you have tried for your common cough, chest, cold, or bronchial irritation, you can get relief now with Crcomulslon. Crcotnulslon not only contains the soothing elements common to many couch remedies, such as Syrup of White Pine Compound with Tar, and fluid extract of Licorice Root, but It also has fluid extract of Ipecac for Its powerful phlegm loosening effect, fluid extract of Cascara for its mild laxative effect, and, most Important of all, Beechwood Creosote, perfectly blended with all of these so that It will reach the source of the trouble from tho Inside. Creomulsion can be taken frequently and continuously by both adults and children with remarkable results. »s Thousands of people, who really know their drugs, use Creomulsion In their own families, realizing that this excellent preparation aids nature to soothe the Inflamed mucous membranes, to heal the irritated tissues, and to loosen and expel the germ-laden phlegm. Druggists also know tho effectiveness of Beechwood Creosote and they rank Creo- mulsion "tops" for coughs because you get a real dose of Creosote'In Crcomulslon, emulsified so that it Is palatable, digestible, and active in going to the very scat of the trouble. Creomulsion Is generally found satisfactory in the treatment of coughs, chest colds and bronchial irritation, especially those stubborn ones that start as Just a common cold and hang on for dreadful days and nights thereafter.

Fewer Cases of Nervous Instability When Job Fits Worker's Temperament This Is the third In u series of five articles in which Dr. Fishbein dkiusse* cause, effect and treatment for nervous breakdown. (No. m) Nervous breakdowns affect not only the high pressure executive and his clubwoman, bridge - playing, night clubbing wife. Typists, laundry work ers, and boiler-makers suffer also. Bu people in these occupations do no break down as frequently because the pressure is less. A girl who has ironed 20 shiru knows they are ironed and worries ht- tle about the effects of ironing on public life or on the laundry business m general. A typist who goes home worrying whether she has sent a letter to Cleveland when she meant Chicago is a better typist than the one who just sends the letter to Cleveland and forges about it. But the second girl won't lose her night's sleep because of the fear th»t she may lose her job when the bos* finds it out. Meet persons with nervous temperament cannot wort ie ttw wdst of noise ajui^onfusion. Nervous workers tend to ta &way from worfc more because of sickness tha nthose who are less nervous. Nervous people aro less efficient in general than those who are not nervous. A nervous person in a suitable job may go on for many years, whereas under different conditions he or she soon becomes unable to continue. A typist who has nervous symptoms, v/orking in a room with many other typists and a supervisor, may develop 'an acute discomfort, make numerous mistakes and lose her job as a result, v/heeas the same girl working alone, with a syrnpathtic boss, might go on (or many years without any danger of * nercous breakdown. A survey of workers in an Industrial plant in Great Britain revealed 17 girls '.ut of 49 without any nervous symptoms. Of the girls studied, some were able to adjust themselves to noise, some had slight symptoms of nervousness in the presence of unusual noice, and sorne had severe symptoms. A group of 156 men studied yielded similar results just like those found for women. When studies were made of absence from work, it was found that the nervous people lost much more time from CAST OP ClIAHACTEnS III N DA 11 ENTOJV — 1 1 (.: r o I n C, dnutf'iter of n /nmriiiK Kinder.

CHAPTER IX '"THE voice that spoke next was unmistakably familiar. It was the voice of Rita Blanchard. "There isn't rAUfh one can say, is there?" Tliita began, "when you see 'someone whom you have — been very fond of — Barry Trent and I played together as children — setting off alone in the dark on such f* errand? . . . But I do want to say to Barry, if he i.s listening, could not find tasks enough to keep hands and mind busy. There were unendurably idle moments in which she found herself wandering about, her hands lingering in caress upon objects Barry had used or touched—his chair at the table, a book he had been reading —her mind traveling around and around again the cycle of their brief, stormy companionship. Late in the afternoon old Miranda came upon her sitting on the lower flight of stairs, her elbows resting on her knees, her chin cupped in her palms, her eyes wide on space, "My dear Miss Benton, how tired you look!" she said, with a Idleness so unexpected that tears sprang to Linda's eyes. "I'm j afraid I have been too exacting, together, my foot!"). , . j W0 nder sometimes if I am Duchess when she i not a very trying old woman." When Linda only murmured out you They tell me the skating on the lake is good now." So Linda half-heartedly dragged soon 1 ." "Ch'lflren snorted the could get her breath. "Rita Blanch.ird was plucking her eye- vaguo i yi she went on, "Do go brows when' Barry was playing I. mcl get sorne fresh air Do with blocks. . . . What some people will do for a little publicity!" They went to bed then. . . . That is, 11 'oy went to their rooms. To Linda, ulimbii'.j thr stairs, it seemed for the, first time since Biiiry's coming had brought the old house to life, Hiat the faces of the dead and gone Trents lining the stairway'peered down at her with ,'t-cret, silent hostility. And this was her weddinQ night. Next morning life went on much as uiunl except that there were no bursts of song at the breakfast table, no swift feet taking the stairs tv/o at a time, no fragrance of pipe tobacco floating through the rooms—m.d Uift, from time to tirnf, Linda fingered incredulously a small golden circlet that hung on a ribbon under her dress, close against the white hollow of her th.-oat. The early edition of the afternoon pit per carried a fust-minute item to the effect that Captain Harry Trent, having covered the first itg of his flight in record time, would rest and re-fuel be • fore continuing south. Eariy in the afternoon a stream of callers began to pour into the house. Old Miranda received them regally in her high-backed chair; but in an interval she observed to Linda with dour amusement, "You might think from thu way they go on that this was a funeral, and they were hired mourners." « * « th; first tirce since she had come Lo the Trent house, Linda her skates from her trunk, and putting on a gray woolen skirt, a short gray fur coat, and a cap and scarf of jade green, started out for the lake. As she passed Judge Baldwin's house, she remembered that she had an errand there. She and Barry had been so hurried yesterday that they had not waited for their marriage certificate. Judge Baldwin was to fill it out and have it recfdfd for them th:.-: mr.-nins. Linda had promised Barry to call und get it. He had been very Insistent upon this. This time Linda went boldly up the front steps a:id rang the bell. The maid who came to the door looked startled when Linda asked for the judge. Hadn't she heard? Judge Baldwin had gone out to see a friend off on the train the evening before, had suffered a heart attack on the platform of the dc 4 ./ot, and had l#:en taken to the hospital. Linda thought of asking if the judge had left a paper for her; but if Judge Baldwin had been stricken almost as soon as she and Barry had left him und Mr. Chadwick at the depot, obviously he could not have filed the record of their marriage. In fact, he could not even have finisherL filling it out. , . . Not that it mattered.'That could be attended to later. Anyhow, she had kept her promise to Barry. CHE walked on down to the lake and put on her skates. Skating was one of Linda's accomplishments. She had been well taught, and though she looked frail, her body was as strong and supple as finely tempered steel. On skates, she wa« as much at home as most girls on a dance floor. Sh» had not been on the ice long before she began to realize that people stopped skating to watch as she skimmed by in her swift, humming-bird flight , . , Then she began lu hear voices-— Snatches of conversation: "—and Miss C'haltam said they fairly jumped apart when she opened the door"—''Oh, the dowager's not worried. She'll see that Barry doesn't slip"—"Of course. No one's quite good enough for 'my grandson, the captain" "— With burning eheeks, Linda almost ran home. A little later she came upon Mrs. Trent seated before the dining room table. Spread, out before her were dozens of photographs . . . Photographs of Barry —Barry as a grave, dark-eyed, adorable baby in an iiftnost complete state of nature; Barry as a small boy, grinning ingratiatingly, with one front tooth gone; Barry on horseback; Barry in uniform— Barry at every age and in every mood. A little sheepishly, yet with t'.ie air of one determined to bra/.on out n compromising situation, tho old lady said, "Quite a gallery, isn't it? The newspapers asked to Borrow one." But Linda knew why the} WCTO all spread out there; and she felt a rush of affection for the old lady that she would not have believed possible five minutes ago. She had come back to the house nined to leave it as soon ay she could yet ready. She would leave a letter for Barry, explaining to him that her position here was untenable — unbearable. She had already begun to puck. Now she wcrit slowly upstairs and put her clothes back into closets and drawers. After all, hadn't Barry left old Miranda in her care? That night the r^dio reported Captain Trent well o;i the last leg of his flight. There was one ominous sentence in the broadcast, however, that sent Linda's nails deep into her plams. It is hoped," the announcer said, "that Captain Trent will make a safe- landing in time to escape the unseasonable tropical storm which is sweeping weslwar4 acwss the Caribbean."
