INC. T.M, REG US PAT. OFF. Thursday, September 29, Among the most widespread of all conditions affecting people today is ringworm of the feet, named by some inspiried advertising man "athlete's foot." The great likelihood is today that athletes are troubled, with it less tho nanyone else, because athletes prevent these conditions; if they do n6t, there are those who do take care of prevention for them. Long ago it was recognized that the chief difficulty was not in clearing up the condition as U exists pn the skin, but the • prevention of re-infection. It has been found that the fungus of ringworm which causes athlete's foot'can live in. the stockings, the shoes, on the floor of swimming pools, in underclothing, and indeed almost anywhere. Therefore it becomes necessary not only to make certain that the condition is removed from the skin, but also that the living organisms which can re-infect the patient are removed from his clothing and his surroundings. A medical investigator in 'Syria recently proved that ordinary washing of silk, cotton, or woolen clothing did not remove the organisms. Tests were also made of the inner ' lining 6f shoes and it was found- tha 1 _ the.organisms also grew in abundance •.:•: on such material. It was found, fur ,s- thermore,-.that this fungus will-grow '"' on wood, seaweed, an4 even on slight ly soiled, surfaces of rocks. ' •"'• FJeople -infected with athlete's 'too will walk in their bare feet pa diving "' wards, on rocks at the $eashore, an in gymnasiums; the blisters and the scales caused by ringworm of the feet ill be dropped off and infect the sur- ces on which the person may walk. The investigators have found that ormaldehyde yapprs will destroy ; ngworm on clothing and on shoes. Woolen and silk stockings may be ruin- d by boiling, and it has been recom- lended that stockings and shoes be laced each night in a cabinet such as s used by barbers, in which there is pportunity for exposure of the shoes and stockings overnight to the formal- .ehyde vapors. Such vapors will not estroy the appearance of the color of the fabrics concerned. There are, however, certain people who are sensitive to formaldehyde, 'hey should, of course, know with cer- ainty that they will not react to the 'ormaldehyde before embarking on such _a program. Furthermore, anyone who wishes to prevent athlete's foot should wear rub- ier slippers in walking to and from the pool and in the shower. Most swimming pools now. provide trays of solutions which are destructive to ringworm. The bather must see to it thaf his .feet have a thorough administration of this material each time he uses the shower or pool. There are many widely advertiset solutions 7 for treatment of • ringworm of the jEeet,.but these are inefficient in severe cases, The treatment <of sever case? is a problem for ^he expert'phy slcian to handle 'arid may require long time.'

Now n succesful surgeon in London, and with his identity carefully protected by pseudonym, Suva writes reveal'mgly of his struggle to attain medical knowledge and training. His first operation was performed to save the life of a comrade during the nobility's road fight from Russia after the collapse of the White Russian regime. Knowing almost nothing o£ anatomy, but confronted with the knowledge that his friend would die unless a bullet pressing against his heart was removed. Savn peroi-med the impossible, and operating with n white-hot clasp knife, extracted the bultet. There the surgeon was horn. His development nfurds Sava the opportunity to tell of studying anatomy in the candle-lit" darknes of a deserted dissecting room, where he worked as a stoker. -His royal Russian ancestry and an unfaithful sweetheart led him to Paris, and ultimately to honors. At the height ot his success in his profession, he met reverses in love and tosed away his life work In join i roving band of Spanish gypsies. There he saved the life of the chief's son. and know his existence WILS inevitably linked with surgery. More in adventure in medicine than a record of case histories.

Because of their late arrival from Japan each year, and the fear of winter hazards, many gardeners wait until spring to • SERIAL STORY HIT-RWLOVE pV.nl them. But there nre hazards in this course against which the beginner shiuld be warned. If lilies art- not planted this all they must be kept over winter in storage to give them, their chill and to check rot which would destroy them if kept out of the earth in warm temperatures. Not all lilies which are offered for ;ale in the spring, experience proves, ht.ve spent the winter in cold storage. Some bulbs are traded in which have been grown during the winter to produce greenhouse flowers, and these will not flower again for another full year. So many novices buying bargain bulbs have discovered. Again, when cold storage bulbs are planed in the spring, they must still make roots and grow underground a long time before they produce flowers. This delays their flowering season at best, and at the worst they encountei .spring weather which is anything bu lavoable to root production. For it cool and moist weather is essential Dry weather retards growth and warm weather forces it prematurely, causing the top to appear before there are roots to sustain it. resulting in i stunted flower or no flower at all. On the whole, the average of sue cess is higher where hardy lilies ari f.lanted in the fall, They begin at onci to mLke roots under the most favor able conditions; in the spring they develop normally and they blossom a their normal season with vigor BY MARGUERITE GAHAGAN COPVRIGHT. toaa NEA SERVICE.

Drainage is necessary for Ja|«m ilies; they come from a mountainous ountry, where the soil is gritty and not like our cold, wet clays. They need place that slopes and soil through vhich surplus water passes quickly. In the .summer it is better if theli roots are shaded, and they have no objection to the company of shrubs Slightly ac'ul -soil is preferred by the Japanese types and oak woods soil ine for them. The Jt.pan lilies are stem rooters which means they make roots not only below the bulbs but along the stem above the bulg, so they should be planted eight to twelve inches deep.

The boy's words had shaken Pat more than she realized. He had come to court prepared to tell a lie—a white Ue as he believed—to save the man she loved. She pressed her hands against her throbbing temples and twisted around in her desk chair. "You must promis* not to do it, Bill. You can't do it. If Larry is innocent he can prove it without putting you on the stand to lie for him. If—if he is guilty, her voice trembled, then grew steady again, "then he must pay the penalty. I'll tell him in the morning that you. are not to lie for him, and if he insists on putting you on the stand that you will admit that you know nothing at all about the car-reither before pr after the accident." The wide-eyed wonder in Bill's eyes gave her courage. The light in them was no longer embarrassed, but proud. She had not failed him. He and Joe could continue to look up at her. Pat sent him oft home then, hit-run" dVTver;"The act of feeing involved 'in a tragedy was not what had killed her love. To have stood Reside him as he faced that -charge would have been her right, the privilege of her love. But running away, denying responsibility, lying—that had burned the last remnant of affection from her heart. She slipped his ring from her engagement finger, watching the sparkling diamond catch the rays of the late sun. Tears in her eyes surrounded it with tiny rainbows. She blinked quickly as the door of the office opened. It was Tom, his arms filled with dog-eared law books. "Still working away?" he asked looking down at her while she tried to blink away the tears from her eyes. She could feel his nearness, his kindness. He put the books down on the desk, stopping suddenly as his fingers brushed the ring that still sparkled in the light. He reached for her hand, touched the bare finger, i "What does it mean, Pat?" he asked, his voice husky with feeling. "Can I help? Have you had a quarrel with—with someone?" * * * COMEHOW she controlled her^ self. "It's all over, Tom. I'm a lot better off. It—it just wasn't meant to be. I see that now. I'm glad I found out in time." "I don't know who he is, but I do know he's a fool to let something take you away from him. she stayed to continue her own fight. The trick that Larry had meant to p}ay with Bill shook her. He jneant to do everything in his power to get off clean. Larry would use any means. And what if he succeeded? What if as the case continued tomorrow she saw he was winning, breaking down witnesses who thought he W38 the driver of the ear? Had she the right to interfere? She knew he was guilty, that he had killed a woman, seri- ousjy injured a child. He had adr raitted the truth to her, but the admission had been to her as his ple^ading^'that"extra woTk" wouid j, "»»»*,'» tif ' were in his ^' Upn hpr husv Actually she * d fi S nt to kee P you ' There keep her busy. Actually she wou]dn , t be an y thing x wouldn . t do if I were this chap." "That's because you're different, Tom. You're—you're just you: honest and kind," "Do you mean that?" "Yes—everyone knows it. You can't be swerved when you know you're doing what's right. You can't be bought off. You're honest, true." "I'm honest when I say I care for you, Pat.

I love you. I didn't think I had a chance before, but now, Pat—now—do you think I have?" She put her hand over his, feel- ipg nisi strength and courage, his gentleness and understanding. I've never known anyone like you, Tom. 1 wish I could think. Only everything is so mixed up, so—so horribly confused." "I know, darling. I know. I can wait and I will. Tomorrow, or next week, or next month— sometime, though, perhaps you'll let me tell you more of what I feel." She nodded. "Knowing that you care helps right now. Yes—later I'll be able to think clearer, and then—" * * * TTE touched her hair and picked •"• up his books. She heard the door close after him. Tomorrow or the next day, he had said. Tomorrow there would be other things to think about. Tomorrow the case would continue. Larry would be found innocent or guilty. Tomorrow Tom would either be due for congratulations for beginning his winning crusade against traffic offenders, or he would slip back into the roie of inefficient prosecutor who lost an important case. She put her work away, slipped into her wraps and went down on the street. She walked to try and see the threads of the pattern. Larry and his secret that she shared. Tom and his love and belief in her. Before her loomed the big Municipal Hospital, its stone front grimy with the smoke and dust of the city, iU steps cluttered with people coming and going, some on crutches, others with bandages on heads and arms, some with tear-reddened eyes, others clasping wilted flowers. "Jean Gillespie—" she said to the clerk at the information desk. "Could I see her?" "Only 10 minutes left in th« visiting period. She's in the children's ward on the second floor." Pat went up through the long corridor odorous with disinfectant. Through purtly opened doors she caught glimpses of crowded rooms, beds, drawn shades, dingy walls. The children's ward was only a little brighter. Someone motioned her to a bed in the corner where a small body lay quiet, motionless, in the hubbub. A worn toy lay unnoticed on the sheet.
