The best are said to be dark reddish brown to black : n color. Flaxseed has properites -imilar to psyllium, but it has a slight, though not unpleasant taste and odor. It is possible other seed have been used as psyllium and thnt they have more mucilagious nropertics. Psyllium acts as a mild laxative by virtue of its indigestibility and mucilaginous character. It is not habit forming. ned and preserved in such a way that they retain their vitamin C. If your baby is fed artifically on pastuerized milk mixtures, it should have extra orange juice to protect it from vitamin C deficiencies.

Not the same kind, mind you, but something that isn't even a collateral cousin of the first that laid him low. This time he stays sick longer in all probability, Because he has already used up much of his resistance on the first attack. Now he has to defend himself with whot he has left. i There is, furthermore, another rea- I son why children could be careful 1 for awhile after any illness especially i after a high temperature siege.

If not denied, ho perhaps goes out with his sled or skates and makes up for lost time. Who suspects that eye muscles and nerves are weak? Or that heart mus- I cles are tired? Or that foot muscles are If you have heard the ancient fable about "the people who, being cast away on a desert island, supported themselves by taking in one another's washing, you have had a little lesson in economics which may come in very handy in the near future. The lesson, of course, is that although ing in washing, a daisy chain of washers in'gin washing, a daisy chain of washers will fall to the ground of its own weight. While this is self-evident, our perfectly natural wish to spread the good things ot this earth among all the people sometime.-, leads us to forget it. ,, A At this moment a great'many- excellent people are deeply committed to the Townsend Plan. Let it be said at once, that everyone must sympathize with this attempt to end poverty and dependency among the ' lo \Ve ought to protect our old people from want. Will this famous $200-a-month pension plan do the trick? Will it work? It would be enormously expensive, ol course. The plan's backers are the first to admit that. They say, however, that the "•reat increase in business—in "purchasing power"—created by the spending ot all these pensions would make the country able to carry the load. ff >:•• * John T. Flynn recently analyzed this particular aspect of the plan; and his analysis carries one back irresistably to the picture of people taking in one another s washing.

He ties in with a banker and learns how a man can get rich on his investments without putting up any money; then he ties in with a racketeer and gets a glimpse of the lawless underside of modern American life. His trouble cornes when the racketeer and the banker strat to fight and he- gets caught in the middle. He but his wife gtts elected to the Senate, sc he is "vindicated" and everything at lovely. Mi.

Selassie s empire. . Selassif, said this writer, will be urged to accept the plan as the best means or imnroving the social, economic and nna»- cial status of Ethiopia, though he will be permitted to retain sovereignty over his state. , ,. , -• Removed from its traditional diplomatic disguise, this plan is not new. It is .Hist the old custom of ending war at the expense of the non-aggressor. Joint exploitation of Ethiopia by France, England, and Italy, on the grounds of internal development" puts a high price on peace for the Ethiopians. Moreover, it stamps with approval the aggression ot II Duce. ,, . The world cannot afford in these days to buy peace that way. 10 persons earning $100 a month each. Theii mass purchasing power is $1000 a month. Suppose now, that these people are taxed $10 a month each to pay a $100 pension to an eleventh person. This person now has $100 a month in purchasing power which he did not have before. But it is not new purchasing power; it is offset by the $10 which has been knocked off the monthly purchasing power of • the other 10 persons. Total purchasing powor of the 11 is the same as that of the original IQ-^IOOO. The gain in purchasing power is nothing. It is the same, Fiynn asserts, in a wider field. The Townsend would put some $19,000 000,000 worth of annual purchasing power in the hands of the aged; taxes to provide these pensions would take $19,000.000,000 in purchasing power away fi'o^ the wage earners. i' u the end we would be simply right where we started. We would simply be taking in one another's washing on a national scale. This, of course, does not mean that the problem of providing for the aged is insoluble. That is a problem which can and must be solved. . ; Dr. Townsend's flaming insistence tnai we meet it is of immense value to the nation. But his particular plan for solving it does seem to contain an economic gap precisely like that in the fable about the desert islanders. Spell-Weaving by Air Increasing clamor of politicians tor time on the networks throws a significant searchlight on the growing power of radio in government. ., Radio .-today has changed politics. When the president asks for radio time, every air lane is cleared for him. Languorous America has learned to accept its politics via the ether. . It brings us as a nation Closer to the candidates, but the power ot radio is the power of mass emotional persuasion and there's where the danger lies. Assuredly the coming campaign will be fought in a'large measure by radio. Voters will live for the next few months in an era of spellbinders. Accordingly the radio listener must be warned to keep a strangle hold on his emotions. •He must guard against the Hood ol high-sounding, silver-tongued oratory that will engulf him. , The best prescription would be to lead the same speeches in your newspaper On the printed page words and thoughts stand out for what they reallyare.
