America 'Mobilizes' Her 30,000,000 Wliile 10,000.000 soldiers of Europe jockey nervously, for position, awaiting the signal that. will.set them to hilling one anotlier, a tremendous "mobiliza- tion'' is also going on in America. It-is the annual "mobilization" of 30,000,000 school children., ready to return to the classroow. Of these,.more than 20,000,000 are in.elementary grades, 6,500,000 will go to high schools. Students in the higher grades, of education make up, the rest. ,,...• More than a million teachers are preparing to take up the work o: teaching them. Above eight billions have been invested in plant, and close to two billions-will go during the coming year to the carrying on of the work. This is a tremendous effort, probably not matched in any other country or in any other time. On it we pin oxir faith, It is"jnass:education," in a sense. For we in.the United.Slates have always slaked everything, on belief in the people as a whole. We have asked with Lincoln, "Why-should there not be a patient confidence in the ultimate justice of the.-people? Is there any better, or, equal hope in the world. We believe there is none. And because wo rely thus, on the will of the people, we have gone to great pains to try to make sure that it shall be an informed and an intelligent will. Where else in the world is there a fundamental charter for a great area that has in. its words like these, contained in the ordinance of 17ST which.set up the Northwest Territory: "religion, 'morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and. the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall be forever encouraged. On that ground we have taken our stand, and on that ground- we stand today as-our 30,000,000 children and.young men and women prepare to return to. school. Qn those whose school days are past, however, devolves a responsibility. We have been, in our day, tile beneficiaries of this board educational program. And/on.every one of us rests "the moral, obligation to be intelligent." In the United States it-is not only necessary that the leaders think. It is necessary that the-leaders think. It is necesary. that all.shall think. We have the duty to think, and not mrly-to be swayed at will by every seductive voice that comes out of a radio receiver, or the first flannel-mouthed orator, who stands up on his hind legs to address a mass meeting. In certain cuntries they have introduced a new idea: they say "we think with-ojir. blood,." Tnat, of course, is exactly the way a tiger thinks. It is not thinking,.b.ut feeling, and-usually on. the lowest plane, of feeling, at that. We who were school children yesterday, must think straight if we ure to protect those who are school children tomorrow. THE FAMILY DOCTOR) T. M. REO. l». 9, PAT. 6FF By DR. MORRIS F1SHBEIN of the American Medical Hygela, the Health Mngniln* Mortality Kate Drops as Incubators Breathe Life Into Premature Babies Babies rarely survive if they weigh less than 2.2 pounds, ur 1000 grains, at birth. Not long ago a newspaperman called nie up to ask if it is true that more tiny babies are being born now than in the past. The number of babies born prematurely or small is not greater now than formerly. It is, in fact, much smaller because of the advances of modern obstetrical science. We hear much more about such IKIU- ies because newspapers discuss such subjects now while they foi'merly did not do so. It is now possible to save the lives of such babies in far greater numbers than was formerly pos- are records of (be There of largo number, of babies who weighed loss than 2.2 pounds at the time they were born. Since these show such babies cntch up iwth normal babies by the time they are six months to a year of ago, every possible ef- fovt is made to save their Hvos. Use of the bnby incubator, breatlng oxygen mixed with carbon dioxide. Feeding of mothers' milk and application- of other developments of modern 'medical scUmee let these babids survive to become healthful children and adults. The birth is reported of a baby weigh ing only 1.6 pounds, or 735 grams. By Saturday, September 0,.1939J the time this baby as wl yew old weighed IT pounds nvul 5 ounces. According to stntistirs of the Children's Bureau, 5 per cent, or I 2t)th of survival j 23.00(1 babies born alive recently in this country were permtiturely born. In the city of- Chicago 4: pin- cent of 97.000 babies born alive in 1936 and l'.)H7 ewre reported prematurely born. This indicates about 86,000 babies are burn every year in tho United Stales in acl- , vmice of tho lime when they • nrviviv' They nro underweight and-undersized nml tleniand spocinl medical' nttcnlion if tlioy are-to survivo/ The first step in (lie survival of such a baby is to regulate the body heat.

Grant's Six-Cent Lawsuit Almost Cost Army Careei A JUDGMENT of six cents won " by U. S. Grant might hav< ended the military career of the brillinnt Civil War 1 on dor nt Ihc battle of Shiloh. And the deeisioi; on Grant';; future in the Union Army rested with the man whr. had termed Grant an idle loafer. It was on <-i winter night in 1850 that U. S. Grant, then lieutenant in station at Detroit Barracks, Detroit, Mich., slipped and fi-ll on an icy, paved sidewalk in front of Zachariah Chandler's homo. The injury incapacitated Grant for several week.';. ; Grant demanded that Chandler, a wealthy merchant, pay his | doctor bills. Chandler refused, I Grant sued. | Chandler conducted his own rase. He was an important figure in Detroit's business and political circles and he- argued brilliantly, placing the blame for the accident upon whiskey, which, he alleged, Grant had imbibed too freely. The jury awarded Grant six cents. Years later Grant was accused of having ruthlessly sacrificed hundreds of lives at Shiloh, relieved of his command. Chandler, now senator, headed the powerful Congressional Committee lor tho Conduct of the Wr,r. Grant was reinstated to his command. The records fail to 'show Chandler's action. Prob- ;,ably, being a sincere patriot, he ;iad forgiven Grant, in view of jthe general's military rucr-ess. ) Grant und Chandler later be- 'eame close friends, Chandler re- 'rnaining one of his most loyal sup- 'porters during his presidential term.
