Colonel Lindbergh's most recent radio speech, whether you agree with its wisdom or not, is serviceable in drawing attention to the promised American defense of Canada. Thoughtless concern has arisen from' the possibility that the United States might be drawn into war because Canada is at war. It has been said that any sort of attack on Canada, by nations against whom she has declared war, would be considered an act of war against the United States. Colonel Lindbergh apparently felt this so strongly that he suggested that Canada ought to have "asked our permission" before declaring war on Germany; that is, she should string along either with th'c United States or with Britain. This seems entirely unreasonable. The Canadians are a free people, as proud as any people of their independence of action. They have the same right as any sovereign people to declare war on whom they choose. They are much too proud a people to expect to be shielded by anyone from the consequences of their'own acts. This we can readily understand. The Monroe Doctrine, once the policy of the United States alone, but how becoming the united policy of al! the countries south of the Great Lakes, is in essence very simple. It is that the Americas-are closed to colonization from Europe or Asia and united in resistance to conquest front abroad. What President Roosevelt said on August 18. 1938, at Kingston, Ontario, was entirely in. line with this traditional policy: "I give you assurance that the people of the United Stales will not stand idly by if the domination of Canadian soil is threatened by any other empire." Any threat to Canadian sovereignty—in Short, any military invasion of a sort which threatens establishment of a European power on a permanent basis—is a threat to the United States, and will be so treated. But that does not apply to blockade of the Canadian coast, or even neces- sanly to bombardment of its cities by sea or air. Canada is rapidly becoming the center and heart of British air .defense, both as to the building of planes and the training of flyers. Should those planes and flyers hold the balance of power in a widespread European air war, the Germans would be more than .human if they did not try to strike at their source. TechnicaEy it could be done. Von Gronau flew three times to North America frota' the North Sea-in 1930 to New York, 4670 miles. 47 hours' flying time; in 1931, to Chicago via northern Ontario; and in 1932 around the world through Detroit and Chicago and north to Winnipeg. The northern Great Circle route, over Iceland and Greenland, pioneered by Lindbergh himself is a "short-cut" into Canada from the northeast '«mseu, txJfhT?• nJT^ 8 a " aCk °" Canada ' WhUe ' a '° ng Shot ' * by no means Impossible. But there is no present reason to think that it could threaten the sovereignty of Canada, or result in any permanent occuptaion of Ae kind with which the Monroe Doctrine fs concerned. Canada understands this dta- fancfcon. if this be a true estimate of American policy, there would be no harm in everybody's understanding it. THE FAMILY DOCTOR] T. m. Mta. o. «. ?*T. By DB.

O2 1m ear and a crackling sensation when the person concerned yawns or blows his nose. The hearing will momentarily be better after this crackling sensat ion occurs. Pain around the ear and pain when the lobe of the ear is pulled is a common sign. There would be fewer cases of acute infected middle ear if children would blow the nose always with both nostrils open. Persons should not try to treat their nose infections by forcing strong antiseptic solutions into the nose in on attempt to wash it out. In early stages of acute infection of the middle ear, a doctor can frequently help by injecting small amounts of a warm carbolicglycerin medication. Since such mixtures may do more harm than good and since the exact aount of the two ingredients must be carefully calculated, no person should attempt to treat himself for an infection of the ear. He should have an examination made by a physician experienced in this work. The eardrum may rupture before the physician can make a clean incision with a knife. A thin, watery material will come through the hole in the eardrum. Later it will become thicker and have difficulty in escaping through the small perforation in the eardrum. The doctor should wash out the ear frequently with a warm salt boric acid solution to clean out the infectious material and prevent the spread of infection. A small amount of soda may be added if the material that comes fro the infection is stringy and thick. The solution with which the ear is irrigated and washed should be at a teperature which the patient can comfortably bear, between 99 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit. It is dsirable to straighten out the external ear canal. This can be done by passing the hand over the head and grasping the upper edge of the ear, lifting it upward and back. Unnecessary pressure in the ear can be prevented by holding the nozzle of the syringe, which should be small and not sharp, gently toward the side of the ea r canal. The outer part of the canal is washed to clean away dust and dirt and to accustom the ear to the sensation of heat. The stream of water is directed at one side of the canal rather than right down the middle. This permits the water to pass deeply on the one wall and provides for a return flow of the water. A similar process is used in cleaning up most infections in the middle ear. Before the specialist in ear diseases can advise anyone regarding hearing devices, he should make a thorough examination of the patient's auditory defecLs. Many persons who should wear aids to hearing hesitate to do so because of vanity or because they feel such devices are cumbersome. It took a long time to get people to wear glasses because of the idea that those who wore them were in some way inferior. One of the earliest aids to hearing was the ear trumpet. U is useful if the person speaking raises his voice, or if they sound waves are properly concentrated in the region of the ear. The modern hearing device is not, however, calculated to collect sound waves, but rather to intensify them. Many great men were hard of hearing yet were successful. Beehoven, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Oliver Goldsmith Murtui Luther, George Meredith and Lord Chesterfield were a few who admitted hearing defects. Much depends, of course, on the willingness of the person concerned to take advantage of what modern science has to offer. Five rules have been drawn up for those who are hard of hearing to help them overcome the effects of their handicap: 1. Be frank in admitting your hand-i cap to yourself and your neighbors instead of attempting to conceal your deafness. £. Don't brood over your hearing detect, but be grateful you are not afflicted with something more .serious. 3. Consult an ear specialist as soon as you notice your difficulty and follow his advice. 4. Avi^itJ "quacks" with their promises to bring aiout a speedy cure for deafness. 5. Join a league for the hard of hearing and participate in its activities. By co-operating with others similarly afflicted, you will relieve yourself and hep lo advance the alleviaton of deafness. 193 Acre Farm, half in Bridge Creek Bottom, some good timber, near McNub on All-Weather road; Half in cultivation: Cooperating with the Agricultural Program.
