The Business of War Goes Deeper Into the Red The machines which man ha-: devised for killing his fellows in timn of war may have reached a frightening peak of efficiency, but war itself remains the most inefficient means of settling disputes ever invented. In fact, "remains" isn't quite the word: war seems to be getting constantly less efficient. A Washington correspondent for a New York paper recently dug into the records to find out just how the costs of war stand these days, and he made some surprising and morbidly interesting discoveries. TtHtake the life of one enemy soldier always was an expensive business; but it is getting so much more expensive that one is forced to wonder how a supposedly intelligent race can go on putting up with the institution. This correspondent compared the expenses of the United States incurred in two wars—the War Between tho States, in 1861-65, and the World war in 1917-18. In the earlier war, the federal army fired some 5,000,000 rounds of ammunition, making casualties out of 340,000 Confederates, During the World war, the British. French and American armies fired upward of GOO.000,000 rounds of ammunition, with which they killed 3,400,000 of their enemies. If you will do a little arithmetic, you will see that it takes about 12 times as many rounds of ammunition now to kill a man as it did in the days of the smooth-bore muzzle-loaders. All of this means, a tremendous increase in the cost of running a wnr. In the Civil War, it. cost the northern government approximately $13,800 for each Confederate Soldier slain; in the World war, the cost per casualty had Jumped to $36,000. In the earlier war, the government spent just a little more than $3.480,000 a day; in the World war, its daily expense ran to more than $38,000,000. In the Civil war, a federal battery fired on an average four rounds per day, from start to finish; in the Wqrld wnr, the average had jumped to 30 rounds per day. If the institution under consideration were anything but war, a set of figures like these would,mean a public scandal—followed by a drastic shakeup. But war, by. its very nature, is the most expensive, inefficient, and illogical way possible of settling a dispute. It kills off a nation's best men and lets its least fit survive. It creates two new quarrels for every one it disposes of. It is disastrous to the winner as well as to the loser. It creates debts that are never paid off and destroys in a year more than can.be built up in a generation of peace. It is living and ter- j rible proof that for all his high attainments man is still only a little way out i of the jungle. ' ! So need we be surprised to learn that it is steadily getting less and less ! efficient? . Wednesday, October 19, 1038. The Family Doctor ^^. ' \ -•" ' '_ _ Her. U. a Fat. OR. By DR. M.ORRJS Editor, Journal of the American .Medical Association, and of Hygeia, the Health Magazine Your Most Valuable Instruments—Yoiir Hands- Are Worth 1 Protection ' One of the most astounding mechanisms of which we have any. knowledge is the human hand.' The human animal'is the only one who uses tools to aid him in his work. He is also fne only animal who uses the index 'finger. He is the only animal in whom there are separate muscles that go only to this finger. In the development, of the human body, the position of the thumb is different from that in other animals, being opposite to the fingers, whereas in other species the thumb is on the same side as the fingers. An animal with the thumb on the same side as the fingers has great trouble in trying to use any tooL The human hand developed its present flexible form in response to the needs of mankind. When the anatomy of the human hand is studied, it is found that, first of all, it rests in a certain position- that is, flexed. The resting position is not the best working position. The tendons on the backs of the fingers do not need tunnels to control their motion, because the fingers cannot be bent backward. The tendons might, however, slip sideways over the knuckles when the fingers are flexed, were it not for the fact that the tendons on the back of the hand are tied together sidewise by bands of tissue. ' This construction of the hand is important in relationship to its ability to function. For that very reason an injury ot the hand is of the utmost importance, because it may interfere with the ability of the individual thereafter to work. The wear and tear of life exposes the hand in'an'unusual degree to all sorts of injuriesi'as'well as to infection by bacteria. . .... Sometimes the hand is'-infected following injury with a pin or a thorn; sometimes infection occurs after a severe bruise. . The structure of the hand gives opportunity for the infection to burrow deeply. One of the commonest infections of the hands is the formation of pus after an infection in the pulpy part of the finger tip. Frequently felons become so serous that they have to be opened by surgery. If the felon penetrates deep enough to involve the bone, the end result may he a shortening of a finger. 'An infection around the fingernails is called paronychia, and because it spreads along the line of the nail it is often called a "ru-arouncl." Frequently these infections develop after unclean manicuring. Usually if the fingers are soaked for five minutes in very hot water, it becomes possible to push the skin back slightly from the nail and to permit the pus to get out. Soaking of the finger in hot water for a long itme will relieve the pain nnd usually permit healing. If there is to be any surgical incision —if it becomes necessary, for example, to cut away the tissue so as to get out I the nail bed—a surgeon's attention! should be had. He can relieve the ' pain by the use of proper local anesthetics, and he can make certain that that operative procedure produces healing and not a further destruction of tissue. pressed, and how to listen as well as reply. The next time he has to meet an important person, he will know what he is about. As fur Mary, now is the time foi- lier mother to school her in charm. She may not be as frightened of people a.«.- her brother, but does she know exactly what to do and say when they are present? Does she know that .she won't give the impression of case if she chatters too much? Charm never has lost its true meaning—that is to say. a real concern for the comfort of ethers, and trying to like others. Women need to learn this in large measure.

This, she thinks is enough to give her fourteen-year- old boy all the graces of the drawing room. Mary of twelve summers she gentlj admonished this: "Ladies don't lounge that way or yell so loudly." All this is well and good as far as goes, which isn't far. Mothers overuse the "don't" method, I believe, in training their growing offspring. I| they would suggest more positive ido, of correct behavior, these uncertain and often awkward children woult grow the pin feathers of assurance and attain the enviable state of "savoir faire,' as the French say. Meaning, to know what to do under any circumstances. There is a party at John's house. He ha sto show Himself, because the place ia small and the stairs go right up from the living room. One way would be to tell John to stay at Harry's until the ladies have gone. But this is dodging the issueas well as acknowledging that the less seen of John the better. I John would far rather stay away, or slip in the back way and nibble nuts in the kitchen, but why should he? Ho must learn to meet the world under any and every circumstance, if he is to attain sureness. It is four o'clock and bridge is running its third rubber. No time to interrupt, you say. I think differently. John should be warned that all he needs to do is to enter quietly, look about briefly and say, "Good afternoon, ladies." Those not occupied with playing will nod pleasantly. A dummy he-re and there may reach out and quietly shake hands. There is no need for further talk. He must not be offended if some intent players do not notice him. Then he can immediately mount the stairs or go out. He has conquered an embarrassing situation (for a boy.) and next time he will know what to do. I take only one such incident to illustrate my point. John may have to deliver a message to an important person. He should be told exactly how to act, when to stand and when'to sit down.

''Before Lud was killed he was riding for another! kind of a fall. He was paying your i salaries, all right, but it wouldn't 1 have been long before you'd have been out of jobs—because Lud wasn't paying anybody else. I'm going to try to hold o!i' the wolves and get things straightened out, but don't depend on it. It's a gamble, and .nothing more. If there's anybody here that doesn't want to stick it out, we want to hear from him now." ] "Torchy" spoke up. "I'm stick-j ing. Anybody hero want to slide?" 1 The ensuing silence was the an- ' Tait turned to "Torchy" is. "Do you try to our contract?" "I believe I can talk them out was leaning heavily on the existence of the musician who had written "The Cat's Meow." But he hadn't yet been able to find him, though the city had been combed and 1'eelcy had wired his description to every conceivable musicians' union in the country Leonard Macy, the dilettante and criminologist, had been suspiciously silent—and this worried Feeley more than anything. He knew, for instance, that Macy had several times been in touch with Barkley, the prosecuting attorney. The newspapers, weary of an administration which used the police department as a political football, were pressing Barkley hard. There was more lawbreaking, more crime than ever, and while Fee-ley was guiltless he was bound to bo painted with the same brush a.s the rest of the department. Rai-klcy wanted a conviction, Feeley knew, and Barkley didn't care much who got convicted. What the detective officer feared was that Macy would spring something suddenly, and make the police detectives a laughing stock. And Dai-klpy would probably en- get a conviction until . was brought to book with sufficient evidence to justify f Ludden did a favor for Hoskins, the manager. I took over I/zy Pico's band when Izzy got plastered on a night that Hoskins had advertised big." "Good!" Tait exclaimed. "Then you're the fellow to talk to Hoskins:—but only if he brings up the subject. I think the best hunch would be to keep showing up and doing yc.ur stuff, as if nothing had happened." "Sure," said Stephens. "That's what we'll do." * * # HPHE next two weeks were hectic A ones for Bob Tait. He and Feeley spent days going over the Dombey papers, but there was considerable extraneous sturt and in the end they did little more than establish what Harris Rogers had told Tail in the first place. Ludden Dombey had been head- over-heel.'; in debt. His past in-j eluded a number of expensive' young women. He'd faked his' authorship of "The Cat's Meow" j &nd failed to make good, and he'd • violated 1-4; -jonlract with the pho- ; nogniph recording Company, which' had been a good source of rcv- Fec-le-y was frankly stymied, and; r Stephens they would try to jreak the ..„.. As the new manager, Tait had contacted the majority of more important creditors and convinced a shai-3 of them that they f-'till nad a chance to get their money. A few nights of pencil scratching told him that if Montgomery v/ould give The Swinga- icc-rs a chance to make some more records, even without Lud Dombey, lie could get the corporation on -m even keel again. Then Myrna could do as She liked. She could slay with the ship, or she <"ould leave it free of Dombcy's debts. 'JilME and again Tait found him- .1 _ . ""'"-iiuni hating Dombey for JL mc.<s he'd made for Myrna. But then, he told himself, Ludden Dombr-y hadn't figured on being murdered. Gradually Tait discovered that it wasn't the debts so much which angered him, where Myrna was concerned, as it was the immediate past in Dombey's private life. Tait kept feeling that Lud Dornbey had been a rotter to sweep Myrna off her feet without a chance to look at that past. Often, as Bob Tait sat figuring over tho Dombey books, he'd be disturbed by the face of Myrna— Myrna's eyes or her moving lips, getting between him and the sheet of paper. Perhaps Leonard Macy was right, and he had fallen in love with her without knowing it. In the days following his talk with "Torchy" and the band, Tait consciously stayed away from Myrna except when he had to discuss business with her. And he began to resent it a little when she would mention Ludden Dombey in a quo"", reserved tone as though she and Lud had held a secret she would share with no one else. Heavy on Tail's mind had been the fact that Leonard Macy owned a piece of tho band. The records showed that he had paid a $1000 for it, probably look it at a time when Lud Dombey needed money badly and bad appealed to Macy whom he know. And on the third week of Tho Swingateers programs under "Torchy" Stephens he called the band together and jilted them lo take a temporary cut so that be could make an ofTer to buy back Macy's bnerest for what he paid for it. He told Ihem why—and every one of them agreed that under the circumstance's Macy should be out, * * » 'TAIT took tho certified checV to Macy's apartment that night. "Bands aren't in your line, Mr. Macy, and I thought you'd be glad to get your money back. I suppose it was merely in the nature of a loan to Dombey." Tait didn't care for Macy's smile. "On the contrary, Tait. I'm interested in a number of things. Why not a band? I'm perfectly content to retain my share of The Swingateers. Incorporated." "What would make you cnange your mind?" "You mean what would I consider a fair return on my investment? Well—you seem to be doing very well with the outfit, Tait. Suppose we said $5000?" "But that's absurd! Do: ibey owes at least—" "It was only a luggestion in answer to your question," Maey interrupted. "We can let matters stand. I'm not in the least worried about my $1000." But Tail was. As he left Macy's Apartment he was plenty worried, ^lainly, the man wanted a share in che band—and he must have a "easoii for wanting it. Could it be so that he could maneuver Myrna iuto a hole?

Mind is Disciplined— On the Set A property man on the movie sets must have an eye for the tiniest details, and a rnind disciplined to precision. If objects are moved during a take, they must be replaced exactly for the next one, and if a set is unused for sc-vral days it must be- guarded so that nothing will have been moved when the action is resumed there. Watching them film "The Shining Court," L.t Metro, I It-urn from lUil Saussc-r that the training of a prop man even dogs his private life. "Whenever I ask for a second cup i.f coffee at home," lit- says, "1 notice whether the steam is rising from it as it did from the first one. Even when 1 take u bite from a piece of bread, I find myself noticing just how big a bitu it is. "When we go out at night, 1 generally manage to insult my hostess by unconsciously taking a handkerchief and flicking .sumo dust off u table or a piano. And whenever I pick up a book or ash tray or anything. 1 always put it back exactly as it was. People get to watching me and think I'm sort of screwy." Movie "Message" Depends On Where It's Shown Special scenes with altered dialog often arc made fur injit-rtioii in films to be sent to Euigland. Usually this ia done for the deletion of words or .slang phra.se;; which the British would find objectionable, and snmctimes it is done for more important reasons, a.s when Errul Flynn, in "Dawn Patrol,' talks about war. In the American film he says of the war: "We don't really know why or what it's all about. And I'll bet our friends over there—the enemy—feel exactly the same way." There- arc also some disrespectful references to the warbosses behind the lines. But a scene especially made for British audiences carries a different lone: "If it hadn't been for this war, we wouldn't have had this flying corps coining along as it is. All of us here are pioneers—but it's growing up, my buy. Our equipment's improving every day and we have the feeling they're behind us back home."
