It is not only labor's rank and file which would vote that way. 'Hie country at large would vote the same way. For labor's internal war has exhausted the. patience of practically everybody. Underneath the bitter personal antagonisms and conflicting personal ambitions of the top labor leaders there is. of course, a fundamental row over a principle. This issue of craftunio n versus industrial union goes beyond personalities, and men who honestly believe that labor's salvation lies along one of these two lines will have a hard time in reaching a compromise. Yet this basic principle is being overshadowed now by something more important - • • ^ , Things have got to the stage where the principle itself is less significant than the fight which is based on it. For if this fight, of itself, gives labor a cripling blqw, then it ceases to make much difference which of the two principles prevails. Labor has made tremendous gains in the last few years. It has reached a more influential and solid position than it ever before had. The principle of collective bargaining has at last been generally accepted, almost everywhere. Protection for labor's- rights is written into federal law. But the eains that were won swiftly can be lost swiftly, too. Already there are very clear signs of a reaction. In the far west especially there are now pendnig measures which would seriously limit labor's activities. If the reaction continues, these' measures will pass aVid will be followed by even more-stringent ones. • • .And the point to bear in mind is that such measures have been pretty largely provoked by labor's own internal quarrel. That quarrel has tried the Pnblics patience; all too often it has canceled out the honoest efforts of employers to adjust themselves to the new era in labor relations. If it continues, it will lead labor into something closely resembling a disaster iv ^w^i?^? 9r ,'° ? " fe ' a dan S erou s phrase-as witness Mr. Chamberlam and Czechoslovakia.

MORRIS FISHB^IN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Assocfation, and of * Hygeia, the Health Magazine * of Chronic Irritations Is Important in Cancer Prevention (This, is the last of four articles in which Dr. Fishbein discusses the new knowledge concerning cancer.) The prevention of cancer involves particular attention' to all the factors of chronic irritaion that can be controlled. Careful dentistry will diminish cancer of the tongue and mouth by preventing irritation from rough teeth. 'People who use tobacco should attend •omptly to ever scar or ulcer on the 'and tongue. Every mole and wart /I be watched, and if any mole is /place where it is repeatedly irritat- /, scraped, or rubbed, it should be (irgically removed. Ulcers which de- ".A'elop in, any part of the body should , "have prompt attention and should be healed as soon as possible, Because repeated irritation of an ulcer may produce cancel. Workers in industries who come' in pontact constantly with tar, oils, and dyes 'must protect themselves against irritation from these substances. People who have a record in their family of deaths from cancer of the stomach and intestines must be particularly careful abpqt their diets. They substances and the taking of drinks should avoid the eating of irritating that are too hot. After the age of 40, anyone who is a member of a family in which several ancestors have died of cancer should have a regular examination once each year, including study with the X-ray, to determine whether or not any changes are taking place in the tissues. Women, particularly, should take part in the great movement to establish a woman's field army against cancer, and have annual examinations after passing the age of 40. Men should particularly watch the matter of repeated irritation of the bowels. A famous surgeon has said that 35 per cent of cancer of the rectum is preceded by chronic inflammatory disease. When it comes to treatment, the decision must be made by the doctor as to whether or not he will use surgery, the electric cautery knife, radium, the X-ray, or a combination of all these methods of treatment. Investigations which are now being made all over the world show that maany a patient with cancer is given a practically noi'm'al life expectancy by the proper use of these methods. Remember, however, that diet, drugs, serums, glandular extracts, colored lights, and ultraviolet lights have not been proven in any instance to be of value either in the diagnosis, the Remember also that a tumor should treatment or the cure of cancer. never be treated with ointments, plasters, or massage. Dr. Francis Carter Wood, one of our great authorities on cancer, has said: "The chief things which any person over 40 should keep in mind are that only early cancers can be cured; everyone is liable to cancer; diagnosis is impossible by the layman; therefore consult a physician. Inasmuch as the disease is fata] if not promptly and properly treated, see the best physician that you can find, and take his advice at once." RAISING A By Olive Roberts Barton Discipline of Emotion at Home Is a Big Task. E^rly adolescence is a period of err.'p- tional unpontrol. It is the time when habits of thought and behavior point the \yay to all future life. The boys (or girls) who le^rn to feel very sorry for themselves now, will continue to • feel that way. The child who gives way to fits of uncontrollable anger now won't improve. It is true that school an clubs and teams discourage such things. Besides, children hate to lose caste with their fellows by opting the baby. But home L* a Uttle different. Here, this young member has to live through many disappointments and unpleasantries not so common in group life. There i more variety and more chance of the unexpected happening. His more intimate self is Affected, too. He feel? at liberty to express his feelings and does not hesitate, usually, to speak his 'mind when, he's out of sorts. He is really being quite baby- fied when he gives way thus to any particular mood that possesses him. I thas been §aid that American youth is less mature, emotionally, than its |n other Jiinds.. Chil- dren from across the water seem to be more sober realists than our own. They've been trained to "face it," as they say. They certainly complain less. I think I should insist on the children being silent when given an uncongenial task to do. They have to take the bad with the good, as we all do in family life, and should pitch in without grumbling. Temper is, of course, a lovely thing, for the exhibitor. Anger is a sensation keenly relished. The cause of anger may rankle, but the rage itself is delicious. It is a habit very easily attained and persistently held. The adolescent no longer has the excuse of unformed childhotxl. He is well able to control his emotions. He certainly can if he ha sto. The boy who creates a scene every time he's crossed is just enjoying himself. Sit him out no the doorstep until he cools off. Take me as literally as you like. One type of emotion hard to control is self pity. To every ounce of unhappiness caused by real trouble in the world, tons of it are created by imagin- AUSTIN, Texas - l/P) - A rising crescendo of whimpers from the 'wolves" at the dismal showing of University of Texas footballers under high-priced Coach Dalia X.

Bible was hired from Nebraska at $15,000 a year with a 10-yeni- contract in the winter of 1937 after the Lonf- horns had wound up in the Southwest Conference cellar two years in a row. Last year. Bible's first in command, they won only two games, vanquishing Texas Technological College. 25-12 and knocking Bayltu- University off a winning streak. 9-G. Again they finished at the bottom of the conference standings. This season the Steers have- failed to win a game although they showed well against Kansas Univer.sfty, lit-18. and :<ice Institute, 13-6. Thpir worst per- onnance was a 42-6 collapse before Arkansas on October 15. Bible Mondr.y admitted he is getting letters and phone calls of the" complaining kind but expressed himself a.s "happy' 'about the loyalty of the serious-minded alumni, school officials students and the boys on the squad. In explaining of the victoryless proceedings, Bible said: "In this conference you have to have a lot of reserve strength because the opposition is tough and the weather hot. The squad of ,'iO-odd is the smallest in the history of the school- possibly less than half the number of other conference schools—and • when we need reserves we are caught short We don't have them. "We do have a fine crop of freshmen and I believe our team will be materially strengthened next year. The competition for material is fierce but we have this year, for the first time in many, gotten our share." Bible said about his players: "For a bunch of. men who have taken whippings consistently, they have the most remarkable spirit I've Tuesday, October 25,1938 1939 Motor Personality-Plus Here is a head-on shot of the 1939 Studebaker State President.

The profiecutliiK attorney xcfkii to tiKhtcu hU case against Myrnn, CHAPTER XX J^ISCONSOLATELY Bob Tait sat in his apartment, tearing the wrapper from a photo magazine. It was one to which he had mailed, some weeks before, a set of pictures snapped with his miniature camera in the Golden Bowl on the night that Ludden Bombay was murdered. Now as he tore the wrapper from the magazine he was startled to see a printed ribbon across the face of the cover, and on this red strip were black letters proclaiming: ON THE SPOT PICTURES OF THE MURDER OP A SWING KING! With nervous fingers, Tait turned to the pages. He gazed at them now with a feeling of bitter loathing. But it was too late for regret. The inexorable world of printers' ink and presses and deadlines had put those pictures there—out of reach of regrets. Almost against his will Tait gazed at the three prints reproduced on the large facing pages of the magazine. One was of the Golden Bowl early in the evening Ludden Dorn- bey had been murdered. The "torn of the swing cats" was on the platform, very much alive and in characteristic form. Between him and the camera were swaying figures, the jitterbugs and the ickies and the whackies, lost in the rhythms woven by The Swinga- teers. The second picture was a shot in the Golden Bowl just after Ludden Dombey had been killed. It was a picture of confusion, of momentary chaos, of men and women in that awful moment when tragedy is dawning on their befuddled minds. The third picture had been snapped a few moments later—showing one mob rushing toward the exits, and another mob, morbidly curious, pressing its bulk toward the body of Ludden Dombey. * f * 'T'HOSE pictures were, as the •*• magazine's caption writer had pointed out, masterpieces of candid photography. But as "Salt looked at them now they seemed nothing more to him than a tangible evidence of his betrayal—his betrayal of lovely Myrna Dombey. He knew, with the sure instinct of those who work in the .world of newsprint, how effective those photograph's might be against Myrna Dombey. In a trance of preoccupation he began studying the picture he had taken just after the fatal shooting of Ludden Dombey. Suddenly he noticed something that he had not seen in the print itself, something that in the "blowing up" necessary for the magazine reproduction stood out in startling relief. It was a slender, wisp-like pillar of smoke. Tait held the page nearer to his eyes. He went to his desk and took out an engraver's magnifying glass, studied the reproduction again. That snake-like wraith was not, he discovered, from a cigaret or a cigar, fn the first place, its character was not that of a spray of smoke from tobacco. In the second, the photograph showed quite clearly that nobody directly beneath that wisp of smoke was engaged in smoking tobacco in any form whatsoever. Excitedly Tait tore out that page and shoved it in his pocket. An hour later he was at the Golden Bowl in the Pacific-Plaza Hotel. The early crowd of swing fans was just drifting in. Tait had no need to refer to the crumpled photo in his pocket. His mind's eye, through long practice, was his camera's eye. In the photograph, that wisp of smoke had been just in front of a palm which flanked the band's platform. Unerringly Tait found the spot, and found, too, the position from which the picture had been taken. He saw that the smoke had been at a point not more than two tables away from the one at which he had sat with Myrna and Anne and Harris Rogers. But hi.s memory did not toll him the appearance of the occupants of that neighboring table. * * * XJE signaled to one of the Golden Bowl's head waiters and the man hurried forward smiling. "Good evening, Mr. Tait. You're early." "Yes. I'll sit right here if it's not reserved, Fred." "There is no reservation until 9 o'clock, Mr. Tait." Bob nodded. "Do you suppose. Fred, you could find out who occupied that table over there on the night Lud Dombey was killed?" The waiter looked disturbed. Tait could see that there had been instructions from the management that the murder of Dombey was not to be discussed, and Tail's question had come as a sort of shock. "Table 24? Perhaps I can, Mr. Tait. Of course, sometimes there are no reservations. The tables are simply occupied early and the party stays through until we close. Then often the table will be reserved under one name for a number of people. Occasionally," Fred smiled diplomatically, "occasionally the name will be a fictitious •one." "I understand." Tait waited, listening idly to The Swingateers. There was no question about it, the band was as good as always. "Torchy" Stephens was all right. Perhaps he did not have quite the glamor of Ludden Dombey—but that would come later, after "Torchy" was surer of himself. At any rate, the jitterbugs who were here tonight seemed to be enjoying themselves quite as much as though Lud Dombey were up there waving the baton or piping into hi.s clarinet. Tait turned from the band and saw Fred weaving his way toward him. "I'll have to disappoint you, Mr. Tait. There was no reserva- ' tion on that night for Table 24,?' "Thanks, Fred. I was afraid there wouldn't be." Tait sighed. "You see—" * * * TVUT stopped. , His face went a little pale and he turned quickly in his chair. Unmistakably he had caught a trace of faint perfume—the perfume of the girl in the entrance to tho Claremont. The perfume that drifted on the black night down in Millbay when someone had tried to kill him! His startled eyes picked out a small, slender blond dancing beyond his table. Her hair, honey colored and perfectly done, shown from beneath a hat that would have been absurd on any other type of girl. Her eyes were half closed. She seemed unaware even of her partner, was lost in the rnagic of j swing. "Who is that blond?" Tait asked, trying to keep his voice steady. Fred looked. "Oh, that's Nelda Starr." "Nelda Starr? Any relation to Aaron Starr?" "Yes. They say he's worth millions. That's' his daughter. She comes to the Golden Bowl almost every night. She—she used to be crazy about Mr. Dombey and for a while she tried to get a job singing in his band." "Dp you know the fellow with her?" Fred shook his head. "Sometimes she comes alone and just sits listening to the music unless someone she knows asks her to dance." Tait was silent a moment. "I've got to meet her," h" thought. His eyes began searching the big room. At a far table he spptted Archie ^/lackey, the syndicate gossip columnist. If anyone knew her, Archie would—and he'd introduce Tait.
