Crazy Talk—Smart Guy H ERE's strange language from a spokesman of the national government—Chairman Marriner Ecclea of the Federal Reserve Board testifying before a senate committee Tuesday, as reported by the Associated Press: "He opposed repeal of the undistributed profits tax as 'the most deflationary thing that could be done'. It was unsound, he said, to contend that repeal would be a good thing because it would permit corporations to reduce debt and lay away reserves against times of stress. No reduction- of private debt is desirable, he said, adding that 'we have never experienced an expansion of business activity without an expansion of debt.'" Mr, Eccles talks fine in theory—but how about the man whose name is on the note for that private debt, and who is personally responsible? ... The federal government, according to Mr, Roosevelt, \vill owe close to 39 billion dollars at the end of the next fiscal year, and that doesn't worry Mr. Eccles at all, because Mr. Eccles doesn't have it to pay personally. But if the debt was, say, $39,000, and it was a personal note to secure some private company's debt, and Mr. Eccles' name was on that note as endorser, then Mr. - Eceles would -change his whistle. He would owe that money personally—and no man worth anything to his country can sleep well under the shadow of a debt which threatens to become perpetual. To deny that is to dispute human nature itself. Mr. Eccles talks like an educated fool. What business is complaining of in the undistributed profits tax is simply this: That the government, assuming every corporation is rich, today makes the corporation pay out all its earnings in dividends so the stockholders can be taxed as they receive these earnings; and if the earnings aren't so distributed, but are kept by the corporation, then the corporation is ta^ed from one-sixth to one-*hird£ of the amount retained. The complaint of American business, then, is simply this: That most corporations are not'rich'but ' are actually in debt; that most corporations are not big, but are little—and that average-sized and little businesses like these, caught with a debt on their hands when the panic began, have had to pay the government from 15 to 30 per cent tax on money, they saved up to pay off a debt. But if they didn't do so—if they went ahead and paid out dividends before paying their just debts— you yourself wouldn't waste time declaring the proprietors ought to be in jail . . . and you would be perfectly right. The trouble with Mr. Roosevelt and his billions-dazzled advisors is that they have been dealing in generalities so long, and so long have been accustomed to running government at a loss and operating with an ever-climbing debt that they now recommend private business do the same thing. In the last analysis Mr. Ecdes' statement simply means that the government not only frowns 01 private thrift but in dealing with small businesses actually offers them a bonus of 15 to 30 per cent in tax-relief if they will just keep on being in debt. This is a madman's logic—but a politician's procedure. Having bludgeoned emergency taxes out of city business the last couple of years, at a rate and for a purpose that couldn't go on forever without being passed to the people in new high prices, the government now faces the question": Is government or business going to be "deflated"? It's going to be one or the other— and it is Mr. Eccles' problem as an administration spokesman to find the book and the page that justifies his official position. If; he talks crazy he acts as wisely as could be expected under the circumstances. /Am,/ thought, held no laughter.

Vaccination as Disease Preventive Still Uncertain Value in Some Cases those vaccines were not safe, nor was there enough evidence collected to be This is the second of two articles in which Dr. Flshlicin discusses _,. vaccination for prevention of dis- i really certain That"they "weVe""usefuT At prsent, no one would recommend the inoculation of children against infantile paralysis by the use of vaccines of the living or of devitalized viruses of this disease. The so-called method of blocking the nose by means of various chemical solutions is not to be considered a method of raising resistance. Such resistance is a function of the blood and ol the tissues. Blocking the nose is merely setting up a emchanical obstructior against the virus, which apparently ii the majority of cases enters by th(. way of the nerves which pass from the upper part of the nose. Until much more is known about this method mechanical blocking, its routine use on a large scale does not appear be warranted. (No. 410) Diseases in which the use of preventive methods is not fully established as of delinite value include particularly scarlet fever, whooping cough, and infantile paralysis. Experiments made on scarlet fever, particularly by Doctors George F. and Gladys H. Dick have shown that the method has usefulness. The Dick test gives an idea of the resistance of the individual to the disease. However, the Dick test at its best is not as certain in relation to scarlet fever as the St-hick test in diphttheria. While many children have been inoculated against scarlet lever to give them immunity to the disease, not enough is known as to the duration of immunity or its effectiveness to rec- r.mrnend inoculation as a routine. There may be, however, certain people who should be inoculated. For example, the nurses and the internes in hospitals for infectious diseases may find it best to be protected. Whct-pjng cough also Is a disease in which medicine still searches for a certain method of prevention. Todays vaccines are tar superior, in preparation and power to prevent or shorten the duration of the disease, to preparations used in previous years.

It is known now that; a machine to do bookkeeper's work; which was known only to the six awycrj v/ho were th-j executors in control of the purse-strings. How indeed? Connie \vondered now, though she had not then. •She wondered, too, why she should ask herself this question tonight of all nights. For Rodney Brandon, crack polo player and tenni;; ace, as well as heir to one of the oldest names and fortunes in the United States, was a young man any girl would be thrilled to marry. He had been Connie's first sweetheart, almost the only one she had hud for although she was far prettier than most girls, Connie had had very few friends of cither sex and only a carefully restricted number o£ suitors. The richest girl in the world had often been the loneliest. Behind the golden myth that was Constance Corby, underneath all the splendor and regality of legal empire, lay the somber, haunting shadow of perpetual fear. The fear of kid- naping, a dream ol being murdered. Her childhood had been spent practically in isolation on the GOOO acre estate ot Corby Farms, with necessary precaution. Everywhere -he went, as soon as her identity was revealed, it was necessaif' to move on. Yet the whole world knew what Constance Corby wore, with whom she danced; that she painted her toenails to match her lips and wore a gold slave anklet; how she had wept when her Irish terrier had been killed—and had had a costly tombstone put over his grave; that she liked hot r cha music, but had once asked an orchestra to play "I Love You Truly"; slept in a bed that had belonged to Marie Antoinette, breakfasted from a solid-gold service, loathed publicity and photographers, and that she would, eventually, marry Rodney Brandon. Rodney was tall and bronzed and blond. There was an air of breeding and distinction about him. He said now, coming to meet Connie at the door of the long, curving stairway, bowing in mock, servility, "Your humble henchman awaits with impatience that is now rewarded. You look more beautiful than I have ever seen you—if that's possible, darling. May I claim this first dance?" So that Connie, smiling dcwn on him, wondered further why her heart did not quicken, her pulses stir, why she did not feel a flood of happiness as he took her in. his arms and spun her onto the polished floor.

Rodney asked. He had persuaded Connie to slip away to the little summer house that often served as a rendezvous when they wanted a few moments alone. "When?" Connie murmured. "When," Rodney repeated. "You can't expect me to want to wait much longer, darling. In fact I can't see any reason now for waiting at all." Connie tilted her head to one side, regarding him. "You manage to sound like the impatient lover, Rodney—almost. Somehow, you don't make it quite convincing. For my part I can't see any reason to hurry." From the marquee the low music of a lanquid waltz floated out to them, mingling with the soft shush-shush of the surf pounding against the wall. A night for romance, surely; the stage all set, the characters in costume. Yet—was romance missing?

Mother, you want your children to have the best there is, und you will g. to any extent, almost to give them their chance. If you did not feel this waj about it, you would be different from your sisters, indeed. But did it ever occur to you tha what is an obvious kindness, some- tunes lives to prove otherwise? This anxiety of yours to give the children all they can possibly have reaches fur- he tries to kill himself, succeeds only in blinding himself, and the girl's dream lades in a lark labyrinth ol poverty and defeat. The boy has his little dream, too, kut the ups and downs of the economic world toes him in a blanket and shake the dream out of him. He drifts from place to pluce a lost and bewildered misfit, and when at last he manages to make a little .stake of a few dollars, he and the girl are so beaten, so robbed ol their high hopes, that the only thing that suggests itself is a trip to Coney Island and a ride on a roller cf.a.ster. On this not-entirely-successful bit of .symbolism the book ends. Mr. Ward has opened a new field with this book, and all things considered he has done un excellent job. 'Vertifi," is well worth looking at, '(A- more reason;; than the mere fuel that jt Ji a novelty. ther into the future than you realize. Perhaps, in order to have Betty look nice for her visit to Aunt Anne's, you hav emade her a lovely coat witii hat to match. There was that piece of fur to trim them, that cost you the price of the new dress you were saving for. Betty looks lovely, as you both start off, and you are so proud of her. You forget that your own clothes are no quite up to standard, only you also hope that Anne won't be giving one o: he rtea.s. In that case, you will jus have lo do the best you can. Living to Sacrifice You want no one's sympathy, anc you don't need it. The effect of Betty's new outfit, what with new shoes gloves and even her own fitted bag is all the thrill you crave. You are living in your girl and you would rather have her looking well than have- things yourself. Perhaps you say unthinkingly, "I hope there won't be anything going on, because I have nothing to wear," arid Betty hastens to add that you always look lovely. Children become accustomed to mothers doing without, arid although they like to see them 'ixed up, they also grow indifferent to replenishing. One won't hurt, or twice, or even .flei.er, for such an occurrence. But n time won't Betty get the idea that her needs are paramount to yours? Someday, when this nice girl becomes just a bit selfish, and you are hurt because she never notices your sacrifice, it wont be entirely her fault. Children are precisely what we condition them to be. Mothers have a habit of putting themselves in the background in order to gratify their pride in their young, but it would be wise to accustom them to division. Contrasts in Generosity Only yesterday I saw a daughter coax for a dress that cost more than her mother could afford. When the mother said, "All right, 1 won't get my sheets today," the young lady was delighted. Another little fellow got his week's allowance. He went out and bought his mother half a pound of candy. She lelt that she must give him back the price, but decided that she wouldn't. It was hard to do, but she let him pay, i nthe end. A kiss and hug was all he got. How wise. Someday this boy won't be thinking that anything is good enough for her. He has accepted her as a person with a perfect right to favors. He was very proud. -W«*American Plan EDINBURGH—£o great is the demand for hockey players in England and Scotland that Edinburg University is offering scholarships to outstanding young Canadian prospects.
