Old Folks at Home When the United States was young, and they were taking the first census, it was found that there were more children in the country than adults—about 10 children for every eight adults. That is nearly 150 years ago. Today, for every 10 children there are 20 adults. It is hard to imagine a more complete shift in the makeup of a population hi what is. historically sneaking, a rather short time. So when we thing of the problem of youth, the difficulties faced by young people in starting a career, it is well to keep this fact in mind. In the old days they were entering a world with comparatively few older peoole in its productive positions. Today they enter one loaded with a superfluity of older people who are living longer and hanging on to their jobs longer and tighter than ever before. Which nteans that activities like the CCC and the various projects of the National Youth Administration will probably be with us for a good long time, no matter what administration eits in Washington, and no matter what degree of relative prosperity shall have been achieved. The Lonsr Lag .One of the discouraging tilings about big government undertakings is that long after their objectives have been accomplished or failed to be accomplished, the payments to the piper still go on. The-United States is being asked to pay pensions to two daughters of veterans of the War of 1812. and the families of veterans of the Mexican War of 1846 are still drawing on trie public treasury. The processing tax agricultural experiment is over—shut off when tho whole business was declared unconstitutional after AAA had collected $963,000,000 from such sources. But it is not ended. Now come the claims for refunds. 29,000 of them, totaling S550.000 000. Only 13.000 claims for S4.000.000 have thus far been allowed, with 10.287 claims for $37,000.000 rejected. The experiment is ended, but the bookkeeping lingers on . THE FAMILY DOCTOR] T. M. REG. U. 9, f»Af. OFF By DR.

It is hard to study the- matter because many people set enough sleep mul complain that they do not rest; others do not «et enou.uh .sleep and say nothing about it. Koine people sleep too long. Experts say that oversleeping is just ;i;. tail as over i>nl- ing. The iiienttil ;ts|/eets of sleep luive been insufficiently studied. Some people have a good night's sleep arid still wake up moody and mean. Others Will sleep only five or six hours and awaken in the best of spirits, quite refreshed. There luis boon some study of the optimum time for jjoin.< to bed. One expert says that im hour before midnight is worth two after midnight. Another expert nays I hat there are two types of sleepers. One is tiretl in the evening, nuickly falls asleep soon reaches the greatest depth of sleep, and wakes up refreshed and well rested.

The which people eating of foods to arc sensitive or which they find dificult to digest may result in restless sleep. Authorities have found that an empty stomach is irritable and that miy ight si taken around bedtime tends to enhance restful sleep.

Not only must the full co-oppration of Russia be accepted, but the three Baltic states, Lithuania, Latvia, nml sthonia, must nlso be broght in to associate. To these three countries of warlike people, opssessing together armies totaling perhnps 20 divisions of wirile troops, a fripndll Russia supplying munitions and other did is essential. There is no means of maintaining an Eastern front against. Nazi aggression without the active aid of Russia. Russian interests are deeply concerned in pi-eventing Herr Hitler's designs in Eastern Europe.

Problems on !';\{<r One A well-known theorem of ye- ometry is that the circumference of a circle is about three and one seventh times its diarnrler. If tiie distance across the lake is S'a miles, the distance around will be three and one-seventh of three and one- half, or 11 miles, and half way around will be Sb miles. If he rows six miles per hour, or 60 min., he will go one mile in 10 min., or 3'.2 miles in 35 min., by water. If he drives 10 mies per hour, he will drive one mile in six min., or 5c miles in 33 min. Assuming that his horse is hitched and ready, he can drive the quicker, especially as he can drive directly to the doctor's office but would have to walk there from the boat.
