Eighty Years of OH To a country watching somewhat anxiously the convulsions of the oil Industry as it struggles to find a means of operation that will be fair alike to producer, refiner, distributor, and customer, it seems strange to think that the whole oil industry is only 80 years old. Oil is at the bottom of our economy today, it is at the bottom of world power and military might. Nations fight for it, lie for it, steal for it. The lifeblood that runs in the veins of modern industrial civilization is oil. So greatly has the world changed since the day. 80 years ago. on August 27, 1859 when dejected "Uncle Billy" Smith was preparing to knock off work. They had been drilling with salt-well drilling apparatus for two months near Tstusville, Pa., laboriously forcing the drill deeper with blows of heavy wooden mallets. "Uncle Billy" and his boss, ''Col." Edward L. Drake, were pretty discouraged. But that night before he left, "Uncle Billy" happened to ' glance into the open end of the pipe. He saw that it was almost filled svith a thick, blackish liquid. He didn't even have a bucket to dip out the oil. So he stuffed rags into the end of a rusty tin roof-spout, and began bailing. That was how he drew out the first oil ever produced in the United States. Eighty years have passed, and a world has been put on wheels by the golden liquid. Millions of dollars have been lost, millions more gained, in the feverish race to discover and produce oil. The United States soon led, and today leads the world in its production. ; But with all the plenty which nature hid deep under the ground, we have ; apparently not learned how to handle it. Because millions of barrels of the , precious oil were allowed to run uselessly away or to burn in spectacular torches against the skies, movements were set on foot to regulate oil produc- ' ticn. Throughout all the jumbled history of this regulation, no system has emerged which would prevent the kind of shutdown which now paralyzes a great part of the industry. Thousands of men are without, jobs, hundreds of wells are endangered, scores of producers' investments are tottering, because of conflicts between, producer, refiner, and distributor which they have not been able to settle in a less drastic way. Thus far there is no consumer shortage. Nor must there be. For the general rule that applies to many people and things applies also to the oil industry: "Who cannot control himself must submit to control by others," • THE FAMILY DOCTOR) T. m. nee. w. «. *AT. or* By DR. MORRIS FISHBEEN Idltor, Journal of the American Medical Hjrgeia, the Health Magazine Don't Sing- the Baby to Sleep Or It May Have Insomnia Later On Everyone likes to have a good night's sleep. Dr. Nathaniel Kleitman of the University of Chicago has made a study of the factors that nre most Important in bringing on yleep.

If the>o obstacles are eliminated, it will be found that babies' like to sleep. Mnny authorities hold! that bnbies cannot get ton much sleep i Yet even nmong bnbies there an?) variations. | Doctors agree tliat methods of putting children to sleep artificially by means of monotonous sensations are not desirable. This includes roking of babies in cradles, or in the arias, and singing of monotonous lullabies. The alter method is in the nature of hypnotism. Investigators have found that yount; chidren will yet enough sleep almost regardless of direction by their par cuts. Over a long period of time eaeli child finds the normal amount of sleep that it needs, provided of course it is a healthful child. Authorities are convinced it does not make much difference what hour a I child goes to bed, except, that it gel's I enough sleep. One export feels that I children are put to bed early ill tlu> \ evening not for their own benefit, but for the parents to be able to arrange their evening as freely as possible. Thus the baby is put to bed early more to get it out of the way than hi give it enough sleep. Another expert insists that children ought to go to bed later in the winter | so they will not wake up in the dark. ' These views may be revolutionary.! I but there seems to be a certain amount of truth behind them. j There is a great deal of agitation i about the problem of a daytime nap i for older children. This is another | factor that cannot be regulated by any i sort of an absolute law. ' Some experts recommend one lo I Iwo hours a day in bel for children j from the ages of six to 13. Doctor i KleiCm'an says afternoon naps .should 1 ~Anything that causes n child to remain nwnke after going lo bed is undesirable. It is a bad habit to put ft child to bed nnd then to bnve it play, read, look at pictures, or do anything else thnt keeps it from associating going to bed with going to sleep. This may set up habits which persist in later life and which may bring about insomnia in the adult. Experts who have .studied sl«p.p in children claim that heavy evening meals have a disturbing effect on children as have mental work and exciting gnmes in the evening, certain types of motion pictures mul serious emotionaf states.
