'M-Day' Controls Can Be Guessed From 1918 Experience There have been a great many guesses at the extent to which government would control business and industry in case the United States become involved in war. Most of these have been based on proposed bills like the May Bill which have been placed before Congress. They may also be based on the experience of the countries already involved in the war in Europe. But there is a further basis for this sort of prediction, and one that is often forgotten today. That is the experience of the United States itself with cen- ttalbed control during the World War. A Council of National Defense had been set up in Washington months before the United States entered the war. in fact, during the summer of 1916. This council had the broad lines of economic coordination laid out long before the war came. Within two months after the United States entered the war, co-ordination be:»an in earnest with the setting up of the War Industries Board. This agency arted as purchasing. a?ent for the army and navy and as a procurement staff for whatever was needed to carry on the war. It also bad broad cowers over the production and movement of commodities, such as to insure that the fighting forces would have what they needed at all times. Ask any business man over GO years old what happened to him in 1918 if he wanted steel for a new plant in those days, and whether he got it unless he could show the War Industries Board the necessity for it. A'Shipping Board was set up to buy. build, and operate the ships which were to constitute the "bridge of ships to France." and the Emergency Fleet Corporation decided what ships were to go where, carrying what. The Food Administration came along in August, 1917, to promote conservation, coordinate purchases, and control movement of foodstuffs. Of course the Committee on Public Information had already placed its informal but effective control over newspapers, movies, and books. The Fuel Administration soon fixed the prices of coal and other fuel, and decided who should get how much. In the spring of 1918 the Railroad Administration took over the railroads. They narrowly escaped remaining permanently under government control after the war. Thus on a basis of past experience, and without resorting to future guesswork, we knew that our own country was pretty close to totalitarian during the period of the World War. Any new war would start where the last one left. off. This demonstrates the unpalatable truth that countries which fight totalitarianism must first become totalitarian themselves. question* on Page On* V-f.

It is some times called Bang's disease after thi discoverer who recognized the con dition. This phase can be transmitted t human beings by the drinking of in fected raw milk and by contacts with infected cattle. Obviously, people who drink we!? pasteurized milk are likely to escape this infection. The third type, called brucella sui.s, is confined to hog raising sections ot Die United States. It seems to affect particularly workers in packing plants and butcher shops who handle swine carcasses. No person should develop any one of these types of undulunt fever lie- cause proper pasteurization of milk, inspection of herds to keep them free from infection, eating only well cooked pork, and avoidance of any contact with unsafe goat's milk protects tht'nv from the germs that cause this disease.

JeonnU of the American Medina Hygeia. the Health Magazine Modern Precautions Safeguard Man From Fever Germs Carried by Animals Among the diseases which are trans- milted from animals to men undulant fever is especially significant. The condition has been called bm- cellosis because the germ that causes it was isolated by a physician named Bruce in 188G. It has also been called Malta fever because of studies identifying it with a disease which appeared on the Island of Malta in 1887. Either of these terms is preferable to undulant fever, because the fever does not appear in wave-like episodes in all of the cases. Three types of the disease are now known. The germ may be transmitted to man from the goat, the cow, or from the hog. In this country cows and hogs are the visual source of infection of human beings. Goat's milk is often the original source of germs in the first type of fever. In sections of the country where goat raising is common, the infection may spread to sheep, cattle and FAIRY TALE CHILD la HORIZONTAL, 1 Child of wonderland. 6 She experiences many and fanciful adventures. 13 Culmination, 15 100 cents. 16 To fawn. 17 Pertaining to Gaul. 19 Goddess of the dead. 20 Fay. 21 Distinctive theory. 22 Fabled fish. 23 Electric unit, 24 Piece o£ poetry. 25 Southeast. 27 Tone B. 28 Measure of area. 20 Grain. 51 To flit. 3!

Thorcau Revealed in New Biography You mny put clown Henry Secliol Canby's "Thoreau" (Houghton, Mifflin: $3.75) as one of the finest biographies of the season, perhaps of many seasons. Here, at last, is full light on the sage of Concord, his personal philosphy. his warm, emotional life, his ways with women. The account is solid, balanced thorough. Excerpted briefly here is an index of the Thorenu character as revealed in his writings. Here was a man who believed in doing what he wanted. But that Thorenu's mind was emancipating, finding itself, expressing itself, is evident in his essay of May 15( 1837. "Conformity in Things Unessential," in which he did not give the expected ansewr. "Duty" consists "in conformity to the dictates of an inward arbiter." It 'is one and invariable." 'So far • • • as duty is concerned, we may entirely negelect the distinction of little things and great. Mere conformity to another's habits or customs is never, properly speaking, a duty . . . -The fear of displeasing the world ought not in the least to influence my actions. Were it otherwise, the principal avenue to Reform would be closed." That is Thoreau himself, trying to come through. And it is Thoreau the person, not the student, who wrote in his commencement speech of August 16, 1827, on "The Commercial Spirit." This curious world which we inhabit is more wonderful than it is convenient; more beautiful than it is useful; it is more to be admired and enjoyed than used. The order of things should be somewhat reversed; the seventh should be man's day of toil wherein to earn his living by the sweat of his brow; and the other six his Sabbath of the affections and the soul—in which to range this wide spread garden, and drink in the spf influences and sublime revealtions in 'luences and sublime revealations of Nature." The ideas in this passage undoubtedly came frmo Emerson's "Nature," as Sanborn, who quotes it in "Familiar Letters," suggests; but the phras- begins to be Thoreau, and the radical application of a one-day week to the problems of leisure is a first last of that truth by exaggeration which was to become his favorite woa- Yet, like so many of his hard sayings, it was not an exaggeration of his own experience.
