England and France, so the story goes, have sold the little country down the river, and have cravenly made peace with HitU-r by ignoring their responsibilities. Well, this all may be true enough. The Czeclis have had a raw deal, and the big muscle-man of Europe is tiding high, wide and handsome. But it hardly becomes Americans to say loo much about it. Responsibilities in this^Cze.qh affair go back a long way—20 yqars or more, to the time when the nation was put together out of the wreckage of Austria-Hungary. And it just happens that it was the United States that was largely responsible for it. The plan for a Czech nation was evolved in this country and was put over by President Wilson. The 'Czech constitution was framed in the United States. The League of Nations, devised to see that differences such as the one now raging between Czechoslovakia and Germany were settled peacefully, was rretty largely an American invention. . So if we are going to,do any talking about responsibility for what happens to the Czechs, we, can't escape taking a share of that responsibility ourselves. It is nearly. 20 years since we decided that we didn't want any of that responsibility. We stayed, out of the League of Nations and refused "to ratify the Versailles treaty. Since then we have repeatedly insisted that we were going to follow a policy of isolation. Crtainly it is our privilege to act that way. Probably it is the wisest course we could follow. But we. ought to be consistent . We can't -logically blame, other .nations for making the same sort of cle- Cisipn'that we made.years ago, or for ducking a responsibility which we ourselves have ducked long since '" The trouble with us is that we want to haye it both ways. We want to stay out of trouble m Europe-and let's pray that we succeedJ-but we also want to hand out a lot of free advice to other nations on how they should act bucn a course doesn't make sense. Isolation implies indifference to whit i havens abroad. If we are going to stick to isolation as a policy, we might i well start cult.vatmg an attitude of indifference.

Dr. Fishbein discussing the towers of pro'tection.' afforded by ., the new food and drug legislation .in the United States.) ....... - Officials of the Food and Drug Ad- ,ministratbn who are responsble for the enforcement of the new. Eood, Drug and; Cosmetic Act are convinced that .the public has much more protection under these ne wregulations than under previous laws. - There are some additional regulations which are o£ Importance to the public and whch have not been mentioned in the general considerations already published. .The' new law prohibits the addition of poison to food except where such addition is required in the pro- fluction of the food and cannot be avoided by any. good manufacturing process. In such 'instances the administration may authorize the addition of certain definite amounts of such substances, limiting the' amount .to a p'oiht at which protection of the public itself will be assured. For example, it may be necessary to spray fruits and vegetables in order to keep, off destructive parasites. It may be ne.cessary to add preservatives to certain syrups or canned goods, catsups -or sauces. The new law forbids traffic in can- die which contain metallic trinkets or other inedible substances. - Whenever artificial coloring, artificial flavoring, or chemical preservatives are added to foods, the amounts must e declared on the label, except that butter, cheese, and ice cream are no compelled to carry any statement about artificial coloring. , The new law requires that substances sold as antiseptics actually be capable of destroying germs. It does not permit the use of containers for foods, drugs, and cosmetics when these containers may render the ccinteiits injurious to health, It prohibits the sale of foods, drugs, What you can't see is the little island slowly building up under the rough waters: the island that will emerge some day. the reael fellow after all. James, grown tall and polished. That island is being built largely of your words, your habits, and your own personality. He has been storing you in his mind, dad, and the way you live your life. Oh, no. No need to feel that you must turn into a stuffed shirt and buy a monocle. That would be most fatal of all. and cosmetics which have been prepared or handled under unsanitary conditions. Moreover, the new law prohibits slack, filling of containers or the use of deceptive containers. Remember that most of the provisions of the law do not become effective for one year; because of the menaces to life and health indicated by % recent events, certain prohibitions have become immediately effective. One of these was the prohibition against drugs which are dangerous to health when used in the dosage or with the frequency or duration prescribed, recommended, or suggested in the labeling. The second was the prohibition i against the introduction of new drugs before an application for such introduction becomes effective, The third was the prohibition against cosmetics ! which may be injurious, to users under | the conditions of use prescribed in the labeling or under such conditions as are customary or usual. Obviously, these new laws have opened up a great new territory for 1 • investigation and study by govern-! mental officials. Until many of the sections have been tried and tested in the courts, it will be difficult to know just how far the powers of the lav/ extend. There stil remain, and are still being sold on the shelves of drug stores, grocery stores, department stores, and other places, many products in the food, drug and cosmetic field which | obviously do not comply with the Wheeler-Lea Act or with the new Food, Drugs and Cosmetics Law. No doubt, however, the mere presence of , these laws on the books will have a j salutary effect on manufacturers and I mediums of public opinion. , ) The public can aid the government ) by calling to the attention of federal i officials any obviou.s violations of the i law which may come to individual notice.

RAISING By OIiv« Roberts Barton Dad's a Star By Which Son Sets His Own Personality Because boys have little contact with men until they are older, you will have to be a whole army yourself father. Think it over. Just what men does Junior know? The principal of his school, and perhaps a teacher. He knows the fathers of his chums, but maybe not very well. A relative or two. Tradespeople, the group at the corner, the big fellows on the team. .Just the usual contacts of a boy's life. A certain portion of his casual older acquaintances will be gentlemen, no matter what their walk of life. The postman, the gas station attendant, the soda clerk. No need to go on. We can't preach gentility to a boy. He has to live with it to absorb it. He has to see you step back time after time and let mother go first Has to Soak in your quiet, sure, voice. He must drink a daily brew of even temper, good neighborliaess, fastidious habits and so on, ad infiniturn, to have it enter his system and stay there. Boys are hero worshippers'. Suppose there is one person that Jimmy sees frequently enough and admires enough to want to copy. It may be Bill Smith who rocketed the ball over the fence and got nice big letters on his shirt. Bill is grown up. practically. And Bll may have the general finesse and polish of a hog. But if home fixes the instinct of fine breeding, then other worships can't do much harm. Or other examples of conduct really enter his system to stay. Jimmy—and this will mislead you— won't be a person of courtliness just because you are a gentleman father. He'll likely go on practicing with his fast-growing front teeth to spit or whistle. He will bang doors and gxab the biggest piece of cake. He'll stick his chewing gum -under Jus chair.

CHAPTER V nnAIT turned quickly to see how Anne would receive the news that there had been a revolver in Myrna's bae. Even in the dim light from the instrument panel he could see her face blanche. "That's—not true!" "It is, though," Tait said. "Did Myrna own a gun?" "Never that I knew of," Anne nnswered quickly. "Someone was trying to make her seem the guilty one." "I hope you're right. But shoot- Ing Ludden Dombey and getting that gun into Myrna's bag before the lights went on would be a neat trick. And, if she wasn't Implicated in some way, why has the run away?" Anne sighed. "Heaven knows why. But it isn't because she had anything to do with it. I know that. I'd bet my very life on it." They lapsed into silence, and Bob Tait pressed the coupe hard. They had long since left gasoline stations and roadside stands. Farmhouses were growing fewer. Soon they were in a country of vast rolling hills, with an occasional tree standing eerily in the darkness. "I'd forgotten there was country like this," Tait said suddenly. "Reminds me of when I was a kid. But I Jiked it better in the daytime, then—and I think I still prefer some light on it." * * * A NNE shuddered involuntarily. "It is lonely. I wonder if I haven't been wrong, getting us out here." "I'm afraid you have, pal. I can't imagine Myrna rushing out here in a rented car or a cab—to ttay alone in a shack." "She wouldn't be afraid. Oh—I hope we're right." "And so do I," breathed Tait fervently. "II this is a wild goose chase we've lost some valuable time." He looked at the girl beside him. "And if ever I find you were leading me along the wrong path purposely I'll wring your neck with my bare hands" Anne was not resentful of Tail's doubt. She merely said, "I'm more anxious to find Myrna than anyone." The countryside grew more hilly, and Tait had to resort time and again to the car's second gear. "We're getting near," Anne said at last. "There's a fork in the road just along here. Take the road to the left." In the next quarter of a mile Tail's lights picked out the fork, und his hand pulled the steering wheel abruptly lo the left. The road grew narrower and more rutted. "Are you sure we're right?" he asked, slowing dawn. "This looks to me like one of those roads that peter into a lane." Anne was peering through the windshield. "I'm sure this is the road. The collage is right up then.' on that hill. It—" She stopped suddenly and pointed. "Look! There's a light! She's there!" Tait increased his speed. "Good!" He scanned the darker oulline of hill above them. "I' don'l see any light. Are you sure?" i "Posilive. We'll probably see il ; again at the next curve in the \ road." "I wonder if we ought to go Die rest of the way on foot?" Tail mused. "We mighl frighten her out of the collage. After all, she doesn't know you and I are oul here after her." Anne nodded. "You won't be able to drive much further, anyhow. We'll come lo a fence-line, and the rest of the way is along a footpath." * * * J£VEN as she spoke, the fence loomed ahead, and the road ended wilhoul ceremony. Tail turned the ignition switch and the lights. "Can you find the path?" he said in a low voice. Anne was quietly opening the door of the car. "Yes. But we should be able lo see Ihe light from hc-ru. She must have turned it out. I couldn't have been seeing things back there on the road." Tait nodded grimly, and slid out of the cur behind Anne. They started through the blackness. Tait held firmly to Anne's arm to keep her from slumbling, but he had to let himself be guided. Somehow Anne managed to follow the path. A host of worried thoughts fretted through Bob Tail's head. Nothing but the sheerest sort of desperation, or a mind temporarily unhinged, could have made u. girl like Myrna seek this place. And if she were desperale, and that desperation was caused by guilt, then what would keep hci from shooting them clown as they stole along the path in the darkness? If she hud been burning a light, as Anne insisled, and hud extinguished it, then she must have seen or heard the car. She- must know thai the collage; was being sought. Suddenly Tait held Anno from a furlhcr forward step. "This is foolish, 1 ' he whispered. 'There's no telling what that girl m;iy do next. You'd better let her know who you arc." Anne nodded. There in Ihe darkness she called Myrna's mum- clearly. It. echoed and re-echoed. But Iheru was no answer- from the collage .shrouded in blackness. "Thal'p okay," Tail said. "At leasl she knows you're here. She's probably being eaulious, bul .she won't i bo trying any fireworks. Let's get! going. My hunch is that we've been talking to thin air, and tlw^ the light you saw was a firefly. Anyhow, we—" * * * HPAIT stopped, clutched Anne's arm. Unmistakably, there was a threshing in the brush near Ihe shack.. Vet Tail was positive that the door, had not opened since the dwelling, had come into their view. Anne heard it, loo, and slood buck fearfully against him. Tait reached into his pocket clutched the revolver he had found - in Myrna's bag. "Myrna Dombey—" he called the words suddenly and clearly. "If that's Myrna Dombey we want lo help you.. If il isn't, then come on down the path—with your hands in the air." For a breathless second there was only silence. Then the threshing started again, wildly this time, and they saw a figure run down the hillside, away from Uic pain. II was a figure in trousers, unmistakably, and yet Tail dared not shoot for fear it might be Myrna. "I'm—I'm afraid," whispered Anne wilh a queer catch in invoice. "Lei's hurry." She began running headlong toward the collage, heedless of unseen danger. The nexl thing Tait knew she had thrown open the door, slood slaring inlo an even deeper blackness. "Myrna? Myrna, please. It's Anne." Tait flashed a light and held it aloft. There in a corner of the room, the flickering Jight was reflected in two fear-widened eyes.
