Hardly an issue of a daily news- j paper appears \vithout pointing it up. One dhy's paper recently contained two stories which, j when set side by side, express their own moral. [ One of these stories came from Rome. It told how a ! decree of Mussolini's cabinet had ordered all Jews who moved j into Italy since the World war to leave within six months. The j measure applied: to citizens and non-citizens alike, and as- j verted that the Jews reprcsente "a dangerous factor in the; spiritual and material life of the nation." I The -other- story came from Detroit, where a message from President Roosevelt-was read to the annual encampment of the Jewish. War Veterans of the United States. The message went as follows: "The American people need no reminder of the services . which those of the Jewish faith have rendered our nation. It has been a service with honor and distinction. History reveals that your- people have played a great and commendable part in the defense of Americanism during the World war and prior wars, and have contributed much in time of peace toward the development and preservation of the glory and romance of our country and our democratic form of government." * * * I N THESE two pronouncements from the heads of two great nnations the divergent natures of tyranny and freedom are unmistakably revealed. It is not merely that the one is a harsh order of expulsion and the other a warm and friendly , greeting.

Rene Fnlop-Miller, in "Triumph Over Pain" (Bohbs-Merrill: $3.50), follows that story down through the centuries, begining with the first primitive operations of one of the most important huinnn biographies of the year. Mr. Fulop-Miller's tale divides it- si'lf naturally into two great cms—the lung struggle through the ages to relieve pain, and the magnificent advance after that historic day In Massachusetts Gcncriil Hospital in 184G when an obscure Boston Dentist mnde the first eft-dive use of ether. The dentist was Dr. William Thomas Green Morton. Climaxing the work of I hi?

But ironically enough, Dr. Morton"was to die of a peculiar pain himself, one which lu» could not nllevitc. Scholarly, fully documented, "Triumph Over Pain" is thoroughly readable.

Pat swung into the first dance with Larry, loving the firm way he held her, the ease with which she could now follow his every step. She saw Larry's eyes suddenly grow alert, saw a smile come to his lips and a nod of pleased recognition as they passed another couple. "Dottie Barnes," he told her under his breath. "Quite a looker." After the dance Larry maneuvered until they were standing There were intro- flip con- set. Pat with self- (Thls is- the second of two articles in which Or.

She looked at him with interest. Up to now he had been a name in the society pages: the heir to his father's woolen mills and millions and the place made by his family in the local "400." A silky smile curved his lips, and a knowing, daring light danced in his brown eyes. "Where've you been keeping yourself, gorgeous?" he said. "Or have I been missing something?" She tried to keep up with the sophisticated swing of the conversation, but it was forced. "You haven't missed anything," she told him. "I'm new here. You see I'm By this time many hundreds of thousands of people have had their tonsils removed, and it has become possible to sum up in general the end-results of obliteration of' the tonsils. fn cases in which there is chronic inflammation or infection of the tonsils and adenoids, it has been found that removal ha* a good effcet on the general health.

They sat on high stools and sipped iced drinks. "And I'm getting my boat in shape. Taking her out on the river next week," he was saying. "After that I'll be prepared for company. As soon as it's warmer we'll go sailing. I'm willing to bet cash you'll make a decorative deck hand, too." He finished his drink and folded his arms on the little bar. "How about lunch tomorrow?" "I'm a working girl, remember. I can't flutter around like one of these social butterflies." "Don't want any more butterflies." He stared into the glass and his voice was husky, his words more thick.

"It's a tough break for me, bc«>.use I can't even go on the floor for a dance." He glanced into a nearby deserted lounge where dim lights made shadows on the polished floors. "We can hear the music and we might be able to sneak a dance," he told her, with all the enthusiasm of a little boy. "I halo to miss a chance for I don't know when I'll have one again." Her face lighted and she answered by moving past him into the room itself. Suddenly she 1'clt free of the stiffness that'had held her all evening. Here it was quiet, comfortable.

He held her too close, but despite his fogginess ho was a good dancer. Still she felt they were conspicuous. She tried desperately to catch Larry's eye, but he continued to ignore her plea. The saxophones rumbled and the violins shrilled, the drums beat out a frenzied tattoo and the clarinet shrieked. They were near the door when it ended, and she felt tired and beaten. She didn't know if Larry avoided her because he was punishing her for the next dance out." A cool breeze blevj; in the open French doors that faced a deep couch.

And then she saw a familiar face, a face that smiled and for a »noment gave her back poise and courage. She turned and unnoticed by the others went into the hall. "Imagine seeing you here." Tom Sweeney took her hand in a warm grasp of pleasure. "I'm glad to know you take time out to play." "And I'm glad to see that you aren't always the prosecutor," she laughed. "Are you here for the dance?"

She wanted to lean over and hold tightly to his hands, to press her face close to that rough coat, to have him tell her that life was the same, and that the love between hcrsolf and Larry had not changed. "You .shouldn't have to work," he said. "You should have a nice home, a loving husband, and all the time you want to dance and play." She shrugged her shoulders nnd looked away to hide the feeling of the unknown fear that came over her again. "I wouldn't rnuke 3 good social butterfly," she said. "Well, that's a break for me, then.

Chances are that Universal's film would have provoked the hottest diplomatic incident in conematic history. A Mexican consul declared that it would start a war. Yet, to neutral observer, the picture was one of the funniest silent movies ever made. The story dealt with the adventures of some Americans in Mexico during the regime of the Austrian archduke and his empress. It was intended to be heavy drama. But Director James Home, who was a comedy specialist anyway, soon found that the situations just naturally played for laughs. And pretty soon he gave up trying to make a serious epic. He'd have hundreds of men and animals, struggling along in tho desert, all flop down in their tracks at the stroke of siesta time. A running gag in the picture involved an elderly, bed-ridden Mexican woman whose coverlet somehow concealed at least SO dogs which would leap out and skceaddle when anyone came into the room. One individual was always incurring the displeasure of the emperor, who repeatedly ordered him shot, who repeatedly ordered him shot.
