But one thing must be chalked up on the credit side of • its ledger. That- is the fact that by midsummer of 1987 a . total of 846,752,363 covered by 2.0.844 home mortice; had • been discharged, paid in full. " V TI^T ^. ear in mincl that tlle reason in most of these cases for HULL refinancing: was that the maker of the mortgage was in dang-er of losing his home by foreclosure. Thus, whatever! else the HOLu does or does not do, it has helped 20.844' Amer-i ican to real homeowneivship. * * -tc THE interesting- thing about the torn-up mortgages ijeports I Charles A. Jones, HOLC general manager, was thijt most ot the people who made them had been carrying standard three-year- mortgages on their homes for years'. These mortgages had been renewed every three years or so, and were in effect, perpetual. Today, thanks to the HOLC. thousands ot these people know true home ownership for the first- time «wt, ,. S re 1S a S °° d cleal of talk in the country today about What do we really want?" "What are our real goals?" One of the things on which practically everyone will agree is that it is better to have a country of home-owners than a. country of renters; better to have a country of small land-owning farmers than a country of tenants and sharecroppers. • Neither of these objectives flies in the face of the modern trend toward industrialization, mass-production, socialization in the broad sense, which is plainly irresistible. There is a point and a place where common effort ceases to be desirable, and most Americans draw that line at the door of their homes. The American dream of "a home of one's own" will not down, and it must not. * * -K THE common idea is a false one that to pay $1000 down on a 1- $7000 home, carrying a perpetual mortgage for the rest is home ownership. That is a means of securing a more or' less definite tenure in a home, but it is not home ownership. The key to the HOLC procedure is the payment not only of interest on the mortgage but' also, little by little, of the principal. I hat is the road to real home owner ship, as the HOLC's patrons have found out. . ; Anything that: helps-to give the country 20.000 new home- owners.can .never, be quite written off : as a total loss. Distributed Wealth r\NE person in every 110 in the United States ip now a holder W of United States Savings Bonds. More than a billion dollars worth of these securities are in the hands of 1 ">00 000 Americans. e ,.u—J his vast sum> 80 ' 34! per cent of the b °nds sold were ot tne-.?100 denomination, and 23.48 per cent of the $?5 va- ti et £o KM ,££ tha ? , 85 per Cent of tne Purchasers have bought the ?25;.S50, and $] 00 bonds. This, means two things. One is that an increasingly large amount ot the government debt is drifting into the hands of small holders. That is good, because the more people who hold government obligations, the greater will be the pressure tor sound fiscal policy. It means another thing. That million and a quarter security-holders is the largest group of owners of any security in the country. They give hope that some progress is bein'" made toward the wider distribution of wealth which everybody knows is needed.

However, Ibis world is full of surprises. The' new book—"Everybody's Autobiography" (Random House: $:H -proves to be relatively e-leiir. You may not like it very much, to be sure, but you can at least understand it. Which, after all, is something. In this book Miss Stein lulls about her trip to und through America. She had a nenx! time, She admits ;is niuch-— "It is very nice 1 being n celebrity a j real celebrity who vim decide who they want to meet and say so and they come or do not come as you want thorn. I never imagined that would happen lo me 1 lo be a celebrity like- thiit but it did and when it did 1 liked it." £.0. in tho process of enjoying n celebrity's privileges, Miss Stein decided that she- would like to meet Da.shiell Hammett.

This is the first cf two articles in which Dr. Ffchbein discusses vaccination for prevention if disease. (No. 415) So many new methods for pre-vsn- tion of various types ot disease have fcoen introduced into modern medical f.ractice- that few people are- really oware of the- moil that rnode-rn medi- t.ine has to methods are- offe-r. Some experimental <>t these nd not fully established as to usefulness, but ethers art- now known to be greatest possible effectiveness. the years. Whereas typhoid fever is no longer a menace to the vast majority of the people, it still is a potential threat in come communities and unde-r certain conditions. If we had in any large city the relative amount of typhoid fever that prevailed in 1890, the number of cases might well be 600 times the number that now prevails. For example, Chicago this ye-'ir hod less than 100 cases oi typhoid fever. At the 1890 rate, the city would ro.OOO cases of typhoid fever. Since tht- disease has now U have- been erU " n arnou , m rjf i r routine- cutlay in order to justify the uie of the method. For example, it would be possible to immunize every child in the United Stales against Asiatic cholera, but it would be worthless to do this airnpJv bicause this disease is not a threat in the United States. On the, ether hand, smallpox is itili a menace and every child should b<..- vaccinated against it. The vaccination 'has been proved to be reasonably effective, and the amount of incapacity. expense and bother is slight. Also established in value is the- u->c- of diphtheria toxoid. After man;. person goe-.s into a community whore sanitation or .se-wage disposal j.-, peor, or where the water supply is not likely to be safe, it is well to be- inoculated against typhoid fever. This applies particularly to those who plan to travel in the- Orient, in the islands of the Pacific ur .s'.rne Europe-tin countries. -NEXT: ^cartel fever, vviioupin:; ee-ugji, and infantile- purajyiis.

It never occurred to them that they were losing anything, or to m eeither. We were a company all working together for her ctmfort and happiness. They brought her little presents, helped her upstairs, got her glasses, for she could read, and did all that young children could, not to worry her.
