Enlightened People Bulwark Democracy .THERE appears to be a close relationship between newspa- , 1 per reading and successful democracy. Recent studies in the consumption of newsprint paper (which is a rough index of the number of newspapers printed and read) ( shows that in the democratic countries of the world consumption of newsprint is high. In countries of less democratic form it is low. Here are the figures: In the United Kingdom in 1936, 60 pounds of newsprint a year were used for each person. In ,the United t States it was 57. Now follow the figures down through other countries and think, as you read them, of the degree of democracy each country has. Austria and New Zealand, 58 ; Canada. 36 ;" Scandinavia, 26; Netherlands, 23, France, IS; Japan, 13; Finland, •13; Germany, 11 ; Russia, Italy and Mexico 3; Brazil, 2. -* * * THE parallel is not perfect, of course, but it runs close enough , 1 to suggest that in today's world only those countries whose people read newspapers widely can maintain democratic government, If you stop to think about it for just a moment, you can " see that it must be that way. Under a system where the people themselves make the decisions on economic, political, and social questions, they must be informed if they are to make the right decisions and thus make democracy work. And no other popular medium has ever been devised that is half as informative as the daily newspaper. • .-••-: In countries where people's opinions come to them readymade over the air from the powers-that-be, in a form that they ttttfst accept unthinkingly, or else, newspapers do not flourish. Nor do they flourish in countries where everyone knows the papers _are nothing but counting-boards for the officials who are maintaining themselves in power. Note also that those democratic countries which stand highest in newsprint consumption also have the best newspapers, the most informative. • ' ••*•*•* I p-LENN FRANK, the educator who is now sought by the VJ Republican party to chart its course, once said that a good newspaper, thoughtfully and carefully read, may be the equivalent of a college education. And so it may be, given intelligent, fait editorship, and thoughtful, critical reading. You can read your newspaper, think about what is said, criticize it, go back and read it again, all quietly, thoughtfully and at your own good time. That is where newspapers stand alone as organs of information. That is why there is such a-rdirect .relationship between newspaper reading and democracy. .- '. .. By Ohve Roberts Barton ' ' , A Here Dies I T C.AN'T be said too often, especially right now. There are heroes of peace, as well as war. In Chicago, Dr. Richard H. Jaffe is dead. In China, a Japanese flyer is dead. Back in his homeland, the Japanese flyer is honored as a hero. To the ancestral gods is told the story of how he died flying against Japan's enemies. Those gods will 'also know the rest of the story, whether there are Chinese babies lying mangled in some gutter, or wandering helpless and homeless. Those gods probably will not blame the flyer himself, knowing that he was only the agent of others. But Dr. Jaffe is dead, too. He was 48 years old, an outstanding pathologist. When a misterious disease struck down 13 new-born babies in a Chicago hospital, Dr. Jaffe took up the fight. He worked night and day to save babies lives. Overstrained by the tension of the search, the urgency of the fig-ht, Dr. Jaffe's heart gave way. He died. - Who shall say his death in the effort to .save babies was not more glorious than the death of those whose work resulted in killing babies? , Cranking Children Need Doctoring Have you ever noticed, mother, on day when Johnny is unusually cranky, that something else seems to be wrong? Maybe he won't eat his meaels, or hasn't had his nap. He may have caught cold, which will be more evident by tomorrow, or he may just lie around and not want to go out and play. If you have just Johnny, perhaps you won't tie up behavior with good health, but if you have raised half a dozen children, you know that these two items are often twins. Such Email matters as colds, or, jpo much plum pudding, affect conduct only for a day or two, perhaps, but when a child is chronically disagreeable, lazy or unhapp, he may need a physical going over. Sometimes the trouble is our old enemy, malnutrition, even though appetite is good and meals of the best. H takes u practiced eye to discover when a child is not absorbing his food. Vacation Is Time to Act It may be an cf'inction in tonsils, throat or teeth; again a gland may have gone to sle-ep and needs waking up. Or his bowels may need repulat- ing. • While Johnny is home from school, it is an excellent opportunity to have him overhauled. That is, if he is puz- zling you with actions that seem to have no aceoilning. "Ihe bright strong boy or girl may be mischie-vious atul bubbling over witli a Etlrplus ol animal spirits, but this is easily diagnosed. U isn't difficult to tell the illfcrehce between normal energy nml nervous tempests. Of course, children are often lazy or naughty from other causes than poor health or an overbundance of spirits. They miiy be too sensitive to conditions around them. The girl who broods because she thinks her friend has cut her, may behave strangely for weeks on end; or the boy who is ashamed because lie can't make 1 a certain crowd notice him may be aa cross as two sticks. School and its various tests of stamina may be the cause of n general whnt's-thc-use attitude, for discouragement curries into every thought and action. Unplcastuil Environment Hume may be an upset place with either too high standards to live Up to. or too low, moaning that unpleasantness will react on almost any child. There are many things besides health te- throw a wrench Into thu child's naturally co-operative- machinery. However, if you huve given nil lile.se ether iniitte-rs careful thought, mother, and can se mi real reason why your hoy or your girls is so diferenl from his former sunny se-ll'. the wise tiling to tlo i sto sec .about health. Maybe more sleep, more cheerfulness and le-ss excitement will be all he needs. Hut if it lies dccpx'l- than this, then he needs some attention. It is n good idea to have children checked every once in a while, anyway, just to ease your mind and perchance pick up some information In guide yon. If the child is sound and well, the doctor will readily toll you so. In fact, he will, in all probability, pronounce the young patient as .sound as a nut. Doctors take pride in well children.

Manic Depressive Insanity Patient Finds Existence Governed by Moods This is the flfith In a series in which Or. Flshbeln discusses various mental disturbances. (No. 413) Among the most ancient of all the forms of mental disturbances are those known as the manic depressive psychosis. Writers described these conditions more than 1700 years ago. ' From 10,000 to 12,000 people with this form of insanity are admitted to institutions every year. Women suffer more from this condition than men do, by t bout 30 per cent. Women affected are mostly between 40 and 50 years old. In men, the condition usually appears later. It is generally believed that this form of insanity is related to the inheritance of the person concerned. The typical patient may arise in the morning apparently normal but quite soon seems to be too full of good humor and bubbling with energy. Then the patient suddenly may become irritable and abusive. This period will be followed by one of more good humor and with some expanded ideas as to the patient's powers. Although confined in an institution, the patient may plan extensive purchases, write great numbers of letters, and carry on great business, but his plans have no relation whatever to realities. Vague and extraordinary pains develop and the patient writes all sorts of queer articles, essays, and letters— often incoherent tuid disordered. It is cutomary in such cases to make tsrtain that the physical condition of the patient is sound, and to recommend that the patient be put into an institution where unquestionably he will do much be-tter than at home. Relatives, friends, and overconscien- tious people- make the handling of patients with varying degrees of instanity a difficult, if not impossible, problem. Since in their depressed periods the- patients are exceedingly mournful, they must be guarded against harm to others and against suicide. This means frequently a constant attendant, particularly in institution.' where patients are not protected by their surroundings. Trt-atme-nt of all forms of mental disturbance includes the best possible- hygiene, with re-st, exercise, baths; use- oi proper sedative drugs; development of an occupation that will hold the patient's interest, and above all. proper attention to the- mental condition. It should be understood, however, that! these patients do not lend to complete i recovery and that frequently, having! left an insitution, they are compelled to return.

'/hat night an elderly man sent up a re-.juest for "The Rosary." Linda sung it from beginning to end without a break in the soft, bell-like purity of her voice. She was stAiding in the wings When the lights went up after her last son.'i. Looking out nc-ross the crowdud room, she saw Rita Blancharcl. Oh, well, Linda thought, sooner or latir something of this sort was bound to iiappen. Nordhof was a bare ~nj mue-s from Lhc- cuy. Pcioolrj were constantly running up here for shopping ana the theater. Nevertheless, she was uneasy. Fvom the first time Linda had sung, letters ,,bad begun pouring in for her. When Linda showed no interest in them, Tony took them in charge, and his dark eyes tv/i-.ir..»-d with delight as each day lhe-y .nci-ea^ed in number. Some he answered in Linda's namt-; some ho lore- up and threw into the waste-basket. A few he- read aloud to Linda. * * « ][ INDA accepted his decisions as ^ a matter of course. These were matters for which .she had no strength. For since the rumors of the radio signals mentioning Barry Trent's name, she had begun sleeping badly again, her nights troubled by dreaming. Only it was a new and even more troubling dream this time. It began with a sound that came just as she was dropping off to sleep—first a full, deep hum, like the carrier hum of a powerful radio; then the "peep-peep . . . peep-peep-peep" of the Morse code; and then Barry's voice, very faint and far away, slowly growing more distinct. . . . She always awoke just as the words seemed about to break through; and went to sleep again trying to recapture the dream where it had broken off. Sometimes this happened dozens of limes in the course of the night. After a particularly bad night, the- thing would sornetiaies project itself into the day; so that sn£" would break off in the middle of a sentence as if to listen. Tony noticed it, and took to watching her thoughtfully. Lindii often caught him at it, and was uneasy. There wus something uncannily intuitive about this round, funny, shrewd little man with his wistful puckered smile. .She wondered sometimes just how much he guessed about her. One day he said unexpectedly, "You are not happy, Silvia." When she began to protest, he insisted, "Oh, yes, your clear, wise little mind is contented, perhaps. You love to sing, and you do bravely what you think you must do. But the heart — that is another thing yet. . . . For this is not the life you were meant for. . . . Oh, well — you will not tell mo what it is you are wanting; but when I am sure for myself — we shall see." * * * TT WAS New Year's Eve that the lights went wrong. That niPht Linda was wearing a new frock To.iy had designed for In."., it was of Ju.ii/uici blue- velvet — not bright, not dark — of the depth and tone of blue that the old Italians loved to use for the mantel of the Madonna. It had a bodice lop, long sleeves, a high neck —. Tony had insisted on thai —- and a cloudy white bit of run"; and it hung in simple straight j folds. In it she looked more than lever like a deep-eyed child, j bravely trying to do her best. 1 She had just sung one line of her opening number that evening when the lights all over the house- flashed on brightly. Some one had blundered. j Linda faltered for an instant. [People turned their heads to .-.ec- j at whom she was looking with such startled inlentncss. Then she lifted her small bright head proudly and 'went on, her voice, in all its tender freshness, pouring out over the heads of the audience pure and clear a; ever. Seated vt-ry straight in a chair so near the stage that Linda felt she could almost reach out and touch her was. old Miranda Trent, her hands tightly clasped obout the head of her cane. People said that Silvia Star sang unusually well that night. And when it was over, people noticed, before the revolving stage bore her from sight, she made a grave little curtsey directly to the stern- looking old lady who sat so near the stage. Then Linda crept away to her dressing room and sat down, her head resting on the back gf her chairilhcr eyes closed, her clasped hands shaking in her lap. .•:.• * * v/as sitting so, trembling a great deal, when someone knocked at the doer. She "r.lled out, "Come in, Tony!" And when she heard the Unob turn, .she opened her ?ycs. It was Mirand.i Tv~nt who stepped into the room. After a moment during which Linda did not speak, the old lady .said briskly, "Well, aren't you going to ask me in?" Linda ;;lood up slowly then, and said in a choked half whisper, "Mrs. Trent! I — oh, 't am such a fool!" For the first time since Barry had gone away, the tears came, and she put her head down oi> the back of a chair and cried a; if her heart would break. It was some time before she realized that, old Miranda was patting her l^ck in a matter-of-fact way, as one would soothe a fretting child. Finally Linda raised her head and quavered, "Oh, I aii. so arhamccl of my-iru! I — what list you think of me?" "Do you good." Mirand;; Trent calmly slnpued patting :uiiJ sat down. "Every woman," she said, '•is entitled to three good cries: one when .she's born; une when she reaches maturity and begins to rcali/.e. what she's up against; and one when — damn it ;,!!, v/Ue-rc it rny handkerchief?" She produced it, blew her nose delicately, and went on, "And if you really have any inle 'est in my opinion, I think you have, the thing all women need most —- er — intestinal fortitude." Linda made a little sound between, tears and laughter, because she knew thai until Tony at that moment appeared in (ho doorway, old Miranda had been on the point of using a much sboiter and rucler term. "And now, Mr. — e*''— Abruzxi, if you will have a cat called," Miranda Trent annouJci-d, "Mr.;. Trent will be going home will) me." Linda had oi.iy a moment to talk to Tony befo '- the cab came. "Tony—" she began, put hei hand into his, and broke off, "Hold it a minute," Tony cut in. "Now you better just forget all about this. That contract — it is as good as torn up. . . . Anyhow, this back to the dewy memories of, childhood business, it goes over big for awhile, niebbie, while it's fresh. But I know people. Next week they want, perhaps, a performing elephant."

That being understood, let me say that "urt lovers" are given a vast treat in three excellent books just published by the Oxtord Pre-vs. These books are "1 he Disasters of War." by Kranci.seo <le Goya, at $1.50; "Cezanne." by Fritz Nuvotny, at $!i, and "The Impressionists," at §3. The Goya book is a reproduction of 85 of the famous etchings Goya made to record the tilings he saw in Spain during the Napoleonic occupation of that country. It is a bit of living tos- tiinony that both art and huamn beast- line.ss are timeless; for these powerful, .shocking sketches of the terrible things that happen in svar might have been drawn this year, with another Spanish war than the one Goya knew as subject. It takes a strong stomach to digest some oftheso etchings; but right now, perhaps, is the best possible time to have a look at them, for one reason and another. "Cezanne" includes 100 black-and- white reproductions of the master's paintings, together with 18 in full color. It is accompanied by a learned commnetary on Cezanne's place in art. Unfortunately (from my standpoint, anyway) this is addressed to those already familiar witli the jargon of painting; it offers little help to the humble soul who would like to know what it is all about. "The Impressionists" contains approximately 100 reproductions, some in color, of paintings by Manet, Gouguin, Degas, Sisley, Renior and others. There is an introduction telling what Impressionism is, or was, and thumbmiiling the leading members of the school. Destroys Definition MINNEAPOLIS — Dave McMillan, Minnesota basketball coach, had an amusing wuy of describing a basketball team before the center jump elimination did away with tall centers.

Anyway, n visiting banker mimed Arthur It. Agnew was standing on a sot the- oilier day arid was greatly surprised when Shirley Dcane- bounced up and kissed him resoundingly. This action, however, did not herald a revt-rsal of Hollywood's attitude- toward bunkers. Miss Deane was even mere surprised than Mr. Agnew. She had mistaken him for an uncle whom K\W hadn't seen in a lung time. When the gal friend of a producer fell ill and went lo a hospial, the movit-maker lind a brief flower-shop sequence written into a picture. Thus the studio bought hundreds of dollars worth of flowers, which were quickly photographed, then bunched otf to the ailing lady. Mixed Identifies Peggy Hopkins Joyce has a very bad memory for names. At parties lately she has called Harry Cohen "Mr. Warner," and Harry Warner "Mr. Goldwyn," to the confusion and embarrassment of everybody. I've always wondered whether she- was able to keep the names of her husbands straight. Jimmy Durnnle- has to carry a piano in "Sally, Irene and Mary," and he- wrestled with it two days before- they got the scone. He wasn't troubled with the weight, though, but with trying to make it look heavy. The piano is a dummy made- of balsa wood. Shnrpshoulingcst rifleman in the United States is Victor Massie, who also happens to be a bassoon player in studio orchestras. He was high man on the U. S.

They say Massie can hit u big)] note at 51) puces. Danielle Darrieux and her studio both .seem terribly embarrassed because one ol her foreign pictures, "Club des Femmes," is being shown wherever censors will allow it in this country. The picture i.s timed enough, but il proves also that Miss Darrieux can act. If mi actor wore to be censured for the indelicacies of former vehicles, ; most American movie stars, especially ! those from the- stage, would suffer.
