An Anniversary Americans Might Do Well to Recall One hundred am! forty-seven years ago. on October 13. 1792. a little group of people gathered in David Burnes' cornfield by the Potomac to lay n cornerstone. There* were only the most rudimentary signs of civilization about them, the nearest real town being Georgetown, two miles up the river. They were beginning a President's House, designed on classic lines and moHeled on the county seat of'an Irish duke. It was a trememtoils Undertaking for a tiny, struggling republic in the wilderness. "Three"weeks before, the French revolutionary armies beat off a Prussian atiack at .Valmy. A couple of months later the head of Louis XVI thumped rntrt a basket in Paris' Place de In Concorde. AH Europe was ablaze with the Song: running fight between the French Revolution and the reactiton which attacked it from all sides. - The youthful Republic, not unconscious of these world-shaking events, had its own job to do, the building of a house for its President. Three years after the cornerstone-laying, the house was almost ready tor its roof.-In 1800. eight years after the beginnings of the White House, President John Adams got lost in the woods as his carriage brought him to Washington ft-om Baltimore. The house was still unfinished; Mrs. Adams hung up her Washington' in the "gre.at audience room" (the East Room) and complained that in a place surrounded by forests she could not get enough wood for fires tb keep the place warm. The building was not really finished until 1826, for it was badly damaged by the British in 1814, who tried to burn it. To eliminate the stains of this fire, the sandstone was painted white, and ever since, this building has been known around the world as The White House. . Many buildings in olden days stood for much longer than 147 years yet saw the world change far less than it has through the events which this lovely white mansion has looked upon. fr Yet there is a strange augury in the facf that 147 years ago, when the workmen cleared a site in the Potomac cornfield and began the White House Europe was convulsed in war. just as it is today. That war was regarded no less as the end of everything." than in today's war in Europe. Conservatives saw it ^s the conquest of Europe by the rough Parisian mob. Progressives saw it as the suppression of the "people' republic" by the rotting monarchic.; of reactionary countries. All agreed that the world was falling apart. . _ Today ' t* 16 man m ** whit « House is closely in touch with a new war in Europe. His nation has grown great and powerful. But his task is the same as that of the men who sat in the same house and watched the Napolenic wars It is to see that that house remains the home of a freely-chosen head of -i great and free people. a • THE FAMILY DOCTOR T.

Uw Anwrioa M0«e Hygeia, (he Hnlth Mai Overeating, Not Glandular Action, Causes Children to Become Fat Many parents who have before them the problem of children who are extaordinarily fat are willing to temporize, with one hope that the child will become thinner as it grows older and eventually develop a normal form. Others realize that overweight in a child is a handicap to participation in sports and in social life. It may produce emotional and mental reactions in the ehUd that might mark it for life. Physicians continue to study the problem of the obese child with a view to determining what science can do to help those who are handicapped in this way. In the Children's Department of Columbia University in New York they studied 102 children from 2 to 13 years of age whose chief problem was overweight. It was found that execusslve weight at birth does not necessarily lead to the early onset of obsity. Children who become fat may actually be below normal weight at fne time of birth. Analyses were made of the growth of the children's bones and glandular constitutions, for deficient action of the thyroid gland is a cause of overweight. There are also definite changes in the body at the time when it LOGS BOLTS and ROUND BLOCKS We are now in the market for Oak and Gum logs, White Oak, Overcup, Post Oak, Red Oak, and Aah Heading Bolts, Also Round SWEET GUM Blocks.

The investigators concluded that 1 the chief factor in the overweight of these children was overeating. When a child has deficient action of the thyroid there is not only increase in the body weight, but also Joss of mentality. This is not found among most children who are obese. The pituitary glland is important for controlling growth, but none of the changes in body tissue that occurs when there is excessive activity of the pituitary gland was visible in these children who were too fat. The food intake of the fat child is so high above his need.s that the excess is stored as fat under the skin after the food necessary for a rapid rate of growth has been used up. Obese children seem to have a specific capacity for storage of fat which may perhaps be related to their heredity. The chief cure, then, for overweight in children is control of the diet. This is far more important than the provisions of various glandular products which may have the capacity of speeding up the chemical activities that go on inside the body tissues.
