Chemists Bring Hope, More Than Despair The chomist has been gelthiK a bud name for himself lately. It sometimes suems as if lie never gels lus name in the paper except when lie invents a new kind of poisonous gas, or devises a new industrial process which will, pul more men out of work. II is only fair, therefore, to remind ourselves that there is another side to the ledger. Proceeding.s of the annual meeting of the American-Chemical Society, at Cleveland, show Itow these scientists are working steadily to maku the world a happier place. For example: Two University of Pennsylvania men report to the society that they have discovered a new snl> fatance in the bodies of men which seems lo make human tissues resistant to cancer. II is suggcstd.) that it may, Lie the presence of this substance in a healthy body which makes it free from cancer—and the absence of it which makes cancer develop. -*•>•*- — **"' '* '* ""'""• * • Not 'enough is known, yet, to unable one to say what importance this dis- coveiy may eventually have. But there is jiisl a chance thud the great war on cancer is appreciably nearer linal victory because of it. Another group of research specialists tell how they have developed a drug which duals out death lo iwjbiir. ;moma germs. i ',. This drug, .seemingly effective , agnmbl all types of pneumonia germs, ib a derivative ' of an Ciirlier-known compound which, while fatal to the germs, was also very destructive of human tissue—ami, therefore, too dan- BCtous to use medically. The dangers seem to have been ovcicomc; and, once again, while it is 'looeaily to predict that the long-sought specilic for'pneumonia has been found, it is just possible that this dreaded disease may be -on the verge of being conquered." * » •, Still another chemist reports that -^ the Ube-of copper mid iron salts will • cure nutritional anemia in infants. . Another tells of a new drug for the tieatment of fat embolism, a deadly congestion ; of the hings which sometime!, occurs after a major operation. All of these things—some of which may have the m,ost • profound influence on the effort ,to reduce human suffering and misery— are simply p«irt of.Uic ordinary, day-to-day work which goes , on in our research laboratories. We seldom hear of this work. The chemist goes his way unsung, and most of us connect his name chiefly with death and destruction. 11 is only fail- to remember that there is another side to it. —Brute Gallon. SIDE GUIXCES Facts vs. Fancies Tlic weekly press Is busy Jusl now running a .scries of seven articles distributed from College Station apparently for the AAA iinci designed to prove thai "the South Is not. about to lose Its coltou markets to foreign countries because of the Bnnkhciul net, and the cotton adjustment program." The first article asserts thai "tlic ex|»rts for the cotton year Just ended nro ox|>eclcd to bu nearly us high as those of the years preceding," that "America Increased plantings 4,000,000 acres In 1033 mid so did the rest of the world,," nnd that, the AAA plan "has not surrendered to foreign markets and Is not likely to <lo so." Well, If the gentlemen of the AAA had ascertained what, cotton exports actually were, Instead of guessing wli"I- ">cy "ace expected to be", they would have found 'that cotton cx- iwls for the past four months were 1,200.000 bales below those for the same period H yc»r ago and that since August 1st of this year exports have fallen olf more than 52 IKC cent. And if they cared lo find any significance In the fact thnt America and the rest of the world each ; Increased plan!Ings 4,000,000 acies, they would have found that world consumption' of cotton of all kinds for the ycnr ending July 3lKl was 742,000 bales above that ol the previous year., while world consumption of American cotton was OM.OOO bales below that ol the previous year. So, while bolli increased their acreage, the world' consumed less American cotton and mure world cotton. >« We arc tiulte willing to admit tlml there is a limit to foreign competition, and we have not turned alarmist on that score. In fact, wu have taken occasion repeatedly to. point out that Ihc ,chief cause of Ihc southern farmer's estrangement, (ram his export mavtarts is live trade barriers raised by his own government. But we must Insist on facts. The South Is losing Its foreign markets, 'and the. cotton adjustment program Is responsible for It to the extent' that. It is a part of tlic narrow nationalistic program that still grips our nation in the throes of economic chaos. . . —Texas Weekly. r «r«uJri«t»4 ptopl* la Mrs, fUeburn, iraart tud dm Ltd la ber brown tailored «uH lwii»d focwtrd to p«et out of th* "Cutctgo!" ill* said tr1umpi)aut Whj. tl'i lust IlSi« New York Mr. RMburn llanccd about him When h« illgtiied from tli* cab at the concourse ol tU« otbef aUtloa be dragged bis bad leg Just a llttl*.

Two or three staid people with novels In their hands came to tho door of the observation platform and looked curiously at the youug people- sitting so close together there. Boots and Deuls were oblivious to all of this. Their train ran past factories, past bridges and signals.
