Quota System Washed Up by Immigration Tide Because the world today is such a different world from that of 1924. the tamigration quota system enacted at that time is having unexpected effects. When the quota system was proposed, the background was roughly this: Congress apparently felt that immigration in the early 1900s was overly weighted with people from the south and southeast of Europe. So it set up B quota system, assigning to each foreign country an annual number of immigrants which should be a certain percentage of the number of people who had already come to the United States from the same country at an arbitrary date in the past. The date and quotas were so set as to give larger quotas to northern Europeans, and to cut the quotas from the southern and r-sstern European coutries. •* *i"| 1 For some years it appeared to work fairly well toward the end sought. Then calrte the depression. Immigration stopped almost entirely. During the first lew years of business depression, almost no country filled its allowable quota, and for a time there was even a flow of the immigrant tide back to Europe. The nthe dictaorships tightened their grip on several European countries ami "organized religious and racial persecution as a state policy began to appear. Instantly the applications for immigration visas from the countries affected began to rise. So today we have a curious situation in regard to immigration, one not imagined by those who framed the law of 1924. It is this: Immigration from Central Europe, which fell under its quotas for 'ntany years, is now dammed up behind the quota wall in overwhelming masses. These quotas will automatically be filled to overflowing for many years. Yet quotas from countries like 'Great Britain and Ireland, Belgium. France. Holland. Switzerland, and Scandinavia are not nearly filled. As a result, the bulk of our immigration in^the foreseeable future is going to come from almost the very countries which the act of 1924 sought to make a minority. In point of fact, last year a numerical'majority of all immigrants came from Germany. This makes it clear that the basic immigration act of 1924 is no longer a suitable basis for an immigration policy. When the working of an act is such as to bring about a result contrary to the purposes of the act, it is time somebdy suggests restudy and redrafting of the law. -The present working of the immigration act is such as to suggest that the whole policy ought to be reconsidered. It should be studied not in the light of the prejudices of some string-tie and white-vest legislator from the canebrakes or the ragged ridges, but in the light of a real and thorough investigation of the country's needs and capacities, never forgetting the turn of events by which the world has presented the United States with a burden and a duty..

THE FAMILY DOCTOR T. HI. H£O. U. 3. PAT. By DR, MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical AssocUHon, UH| rt Hyuela, the Health Magazine Pollen Flying on Every Breeze; Hay Fever Allergies Begin to Sneeze August marks the beginning of the ginnt ragweed pollination in the United States. All over the country the hay fever suffererers are beginning to sneeze and to sniff the air anxiously trying to find out whether or not the season has really begun. The giant ragweed is abundant in the agricultural areas of the Central. Southern mid Eastern .states. Giant ragweed is infrequent or absent from Florida, upper New England and eastern Canada. The fall type of hay fever is due chiefly to the pollination of weeds of various kinds. It is possible to obtain relief for soYrte people by deseri.sitizing them with extracts of ragweed pollen. Doctors report that as many as 40 per cent of patients obtain full relief, and that they get good results in an additional 30 percent. People who are sensitive to grasses get better results than those who are sensitive to ragweed. Desensitization must begin long before the time when the pollens are profuse in the air. It should really begin several months before hnncl. Some ex- pens in the treatment of hay-fever carry on injections right through the season. Many doctors are not much inclined to give treatment during the season, and feel tliat it should be given only in advance of the time when the pollens are present. There are still others who believe that de.sensitization should be carried on continuously in i sufficient and was exhausted during the first two days of the campaign. Results of the two-day campaign indicated that not much had been accomplished. In one city almost S200.000 was spent to destroy ragweed, and yet the air continued lo be contaminted by the pollens. Notwithstanding these failures in attacks' on the cause of the fall type of hay fever, it should be endeav- season vmct out of season ns the only means of keeping the patient less sensitive to ragweed. Throughout live country people we beginning to understand that ragweed Is (i nuifiinee. Enst Orange. New Jersey, lias a law that defines the growth of rnswoeil on tiny public or nrivnte prupcTiy us a nuisance. No stnte hus yel i nailed a law riquiring the destruction of ragweed, but some stales htive l;iws dciiKiriding the destruction of noxious woods in general, nml include ragweed in thif clnssification. In some stntus. notably Illinois, the governor was asked by the legislature to designate certain days in August as "wood destruction" days. One community providied o bounty for every bundle of 50 ragweeds, but the money appropriated to pay the bounty was in- ored to eliminate much of the ragweed pollens as possible. • HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS W1TII JUDAS fN JERUSALEM Jerusalem in Hie dnys before HIP Crucifixion—a i-ity teeming with people, a rl(y torn liy hatred, fcnr, n city rcjolrliiff in (lie coming of (lie Snvlor.
