But in either a.^i- their- won"! be any Mi'.,ar contn.l law afteer the end of '.!)IO unless Congress acts. Hrielly. the law works like this: Ih" :i-;-ieti!iy of agriculture makes an cMimalc of the amount of sugar ihc Unil-d Mates will need during the cominy year. Each of the main .'ugai-pioducing areas then gels its cpiota i (-presenting ii>: share of the mark'. I. Slightly more than H") per cent of >f these quotas, which are written into the law. One of the even more so. sore spots with elocmstic producers between beet i has been the fact that more than a louith of the entire dcmstic market is allolcd to Cuha; hut the lifting nf (lie quotas has tended to reduce competition, since Ihe existing trade agreement with Cuba cut the tariff on raw Cuban sugar from 1 1-4 ccms a pound to nine-tenths of a cent—only a;; long as Ihe quoin .system remained in effect. in other words, (he tariff on Cuban .sugar went up the moment Ihc quotas were- lifter). In with these quotas the present law contains further restrictions on the iMiiounl e>f refined sugar which uviy be shipped in to the country. During the past year for instance, fuerlo Hico shipped 816.000 tons of . ugar to the United States, but was allowed to include only 120,000 tons of icfinori .nigar. Of the million-odd tons shipped by the Philippines, only 80,000 could be refined; of Hawaii's iia.OOO tons, only 29.000-odd were refined* This feature of the law drew sharp criticism from President Roosevelt when lie signed the sugar act in 1937. He charged Ihen that "a little group of sc'i-bo;;rd refiners" had joined in "an unholy alliance" with domestic producers in order to lobby successfully stamina, faith in himself and » feeling of being usual.

He must not be handled roughly or made to do those things that risk his .strength. If he is set apart and made to feel inferior and helpless, this child is in danger of developing a soul scar that will make him more unhappy than any physical hinderancc. The hardest role any mother can play is to be cheerful and oncourag- •ing to her weaker chi'*l. Her heart prompts her to make an . exception of him. She will have to play a part, more or ICES, if she is to encourage the invalid or semi-invalid fo feel that he docs not lie outside the orbit of well people.

STORIES IN STAMPS Four Countries Honor Railways With Stamps DAILROADS in United States may be facing financial difficulties, but in stamps the railroad business is booming. Four na- lions recently have issued or announced issue of stamps honoring railways. One of. the Bulgarian celease of four values, commem- jrating the 50th anniversary of state railways, is shown above. The Netherlands marked 100 years of railroading with two stamps, one showing a reproduction of one of the earliest locomotives, the other a modern, streamlined electric car. Six values were issued by Romania to commemorate the conir pletion of 70 years of railroad service. Designs included till types of locomotives from earliest wood-burners to 1930 streamliners. Release of Manchukuo's two stamps marking the completion of 10,000 kilometers o£ stale ri.il- ivays in the Japanese-controlled state has been delayed. The is- iite was scheduled for release Oct. 2(1.
