Chemists Bring Hope, More Than Despair The chemist )uis been geUintf « ' )!U ' iiiime for himself lately. it xomc- (iincs seems as if lie never guts his name in (he \>a\>er except when he invents <i new kiml of poisonous gas, or (levities » new inthiHtrial prdcvtis which will put more men out of work. It is only fiiii 1 , Iherul'we, to remind ourselves that there is another side to the ledger. Proceedings of the tia- , riual meeting of the American-Chemical Society, at Cleveland, show how these scientists are working steadily to make the world a happier pliicc. For example: Two UnivuivsUy of Pennsylvania men report to the society that they have discovered a new substance in the bodies of men wlijdi seems to make human tissues resistant to cancer. It is siiBKCKlwl that it miiy.lK! the presence of tin's substance in a healthy body which makc.s it free from cancer—and the absence of it which makes cancer develop. '---'-•>,-. '" "'•"-•^ , Not'tnougli is known, yel, to enable one to .say' what importance this discovery may eventually have. Uul there is just a chance that;the great \vttr on cancer is appreciably nenrer final victory touise of it. Another groii|i of research specialists tell how they huve developed a dmi; which deals out death to pn/iii- .mojiia gorriis.. ( This drujf, seemingly ell'ective , against all types of pneunioiiiii yerm.s, < is a derivative'of an earlier-known compound which, while 1'nlal to Hie germs, was also very destructive of human tissue—and, therefore, too dan- • geroiis -lo use medically. The dangers seem to have been overcome; and, once again, while it is ' too early to predict that (he long-sought t specific for pneumonia lias been found, it is just possible' that this dreaded disease may be-on the verge of being conquered." * * f Still another chemist reports that • the use of copper mid iron salts will cure nutritional anemia in infants.' . Another tells of a new drug for the tieatmont of fat embolism, a deadly .^congestion of the kings which sometimes occurs after a major operation. All of those things—some of which WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3,' may have the most'profound influence on the effort to rqdu^e human suffering "'id misjfliy—aco simply wrt of. the ordinary, day-to-day work which goes , on in our research laboratories. M'e seldom hear of tin's work. The chemist goes his way unsung, and most of us connect his name chiefly with deatji and destruction. 11 is only fair lo remember that there is another side to it. —Bruce Catton. Facts vs. Fancies The weekly press Is busy Just now miming » scries of seven tirlldes distributed from College Btnllon apparently for the AAA: itiid de- jslgiicil lo prove that "the Soiilli Is not nboiit lo lose ILs cotton markets to foreign countries because of the [lunkhead net and the cotton adjustment, program." The llrsl article asserts thai "the exports for the cotton year Just, ended arc expected to be nearly as lilfii us Iliosc of the years preceding," that, "America Inerenscd plantings 4,000,000 ueres In 1033 and so did the vest of the world," unil that the AAA plan "has^ not surrendered to foreign markets and Is not likely lo do so." Well, If Hie gentlemen of the AAA luitl nscei'- liilncd ivlint cotton cxiwrls actually were, 111- slead of guessing what they "arc expected to be", they would have found that cotton cx : ports for the past four months were !,2qo,00l) bales below those for the same period u year ngo nnd llmt since August 1st of Ihls year exports have fallen of! more than 52 per cent. And If they eared to find any significance in the fuel Unit America and the, rest ol the world each Increased ptiu\llngs '1,000,000 acres, they would have foui'id thill world consumption, of cotton of all kinds for the year ending July vtus 7-12,000 bales above tluil ol the previous year,, while world consumption of American cotton was 831,000 bales below tliat of thu previous year. Bo, while both increased their ncrcuBc, the world consumed less American cotton uml more world cotton. ^ Wo nrc quite willing, lo admit that there Is a limit lo foreign competition, and we have not turned alarmist on tliat score, in fact, we have taken occasion repeatedly to point out that the .chief cause ol the southern raruicr'.? estrangement from his export markets is the trade barriers raised by Ills own .government. Dili we must Insist on facts. The South ts losing Its foreign markets, and the cotton adjustment program is responsible tor it to the extent, that It is n part of the narrow nationalistic program Hint still grips our nation Iji the throes of economic cliaos. . —Texas Weekly.
