Lifeline Begins at Once It is good to learn that the construction of the third set of locks of the Panama Canal is to begin at once. More and more it is apparent that the Canal Zone i* the jugular vein of the United Stats. In any "new Munichs" that might be attempted in South America, the Catial is vital. In any quick shfit of naval force Irrtrt east to west, or west to east coasts, tho Canal is vital. No pains ought to be spared to make it secure. A new military road into Panama, new air fields, new complements of troops, and other defense measures lire to be provided ns fast as possible. When the Panama Canal was opened in 191-t. it was not only a wonder of die modern, of the modern world, but its facilities were considered ample. Today even those marvelous locks, which operate with such precision, are barely big enough.The great British battleship Hood, passing through the Canal, overhung the edges of the locks, and even knocked off n few lampposts in making the transit. Bigger ships are to cc/m'e. * '' So purely from the standpoint of facilities, the new locks will be a good thing. But there is another aspect. In this day of undeclared wars, it is generally presumed that the first notice the United Stales would have of u war on it by any other country would come in the form of an attack without warning on the Canal. This could come either.by air, or by the blowing up in the locks of a foreign ship making the transit. Either, if lucky carried out, might block the Canal for many months. . The new locks, when completed, will be understood to be for the use of U. S. naval vessels in general, with such exceptions as the military authorities might make. In time of crisis, none but U. S. naval ships would probably be allowed:in them at all. That would eliminate the chance of blowing up u vessel and blocking them. Of course the new locks, while close enough to the n«w locks, while close enough to the old ones to be protected by many of the same aerial defenses, would be far enough off to require two very lucky attacks to close the Canal rather than one. Every country in the two Americas may feel safer when this job is done. •But in addition, the Nicaraguan plan has not been abandoned. A commission of eight experts is on the way to that country to survey a moderate-draft canal and parallel highway system for that country. Tin's survey results from recent conversations between President Somoza and President Roosevelt at th,e White House. This wwuld not be, at least immediately, a deep-draft canal that would handle the largest vessels, but it might afford some shallow-draft transit at . comparatively small expense, and the beginning of what might later be made •into a second Isthmian waterway. All the American nations, and especially, of course, the United States, thus show that they are alert to the problem of hemisphere defense, and that they do not propose to neglect them while the world continus in its present jittery condition.

M. RSQ. U. B, PAT. Off By DR. MORRIS F1SHBEIN Editor, Journal of the' American Medical AsseeJaMoa, m»4 *l Uygelo, the Health Magazine Now Drug Offers Relief, .Cure to Patients With Weakening Muscles One of the most serious diseases that affects human beings is myas- theimt gravisi, which produces u characteristic weakening of tlie muscles of the body, ending in .some cases , in complete disability. In many instances the first sign iif ihi:; ilevelopiiift weakness of the muscles is a drooping of the eyelids, which may bo.^in on one .side or on l.ulli, similhiiH-ou-sly. ;md which nmy al.su produce to some extent double vision. This may be tin- only weak- ness of the muscles thnt will be observed. There is a tendency for the weakness to become more pronounced toward tho end of the day. The drooping of the eyelids is much worse at night than it is in the morning. If the rest of (lie face is involved early in the condition, the facial ( xpi-ession will become dull, and there is inability lo close tho eyes tightly or to separate the teeth widely. Associated with the effects on the muscles of the face there is difficulty in chewing, and there mny be in- iiljility to hold the jaw up. A characteristic appearance of .such u patient indicates him sealed, holding tho lower jaw ii|> will) (he fist, with the face expressionless, and the eyes either paitiiitly or completely closed. As the neck muscles become involved, there is n tendency of the head lo drop over. As the muscular weakness spreads, (lie person affected may have trouble getting up or sitting down. Fortunately, this disease seldom attacks young people, and is seen more commonly in people beyond HO years of age. Fur many years medicine had little in the way of help for patients suffering from this serious disability. Now n new drug, protigmine, has been applied. Its effects on the disease are so rapid and complete thai some authorities recommend that it be tried even when (hero is doubt the existence of such a condition. Relief of the symptoms by the flru.U indicates Unit the diagnosis is cor- rect. One group of investigators reported 2H cases dented with the now drug, in which there was only one death. Thnt occured in the case of a patient who did not tnke the ilosnge of the drug that had been prescirbed for him. Medicine is exctodinly forulnate when drugs with such specific powers are discovered and properly applied in diseases. Obviously drugs of this type are powerful, and ther successful use is dependent on uccurute diagnosis of exactly what is wrong with the patient. These drugs can- nut lie taken except with the advice anil prescription of u doctor wh understands the nature of the disease. Dr. J. D.
