It has peacefully adjusted its most troublesome boundary dispute, a dispute a^ acrid as ariy^Europe has seen. It has adjusted it in a simple, civilized manner. Europe, boasting of itself as the centerpuint of civilization, may well \ watch this example in wonder and envy. For Europe has been able to do no better than arm to the teeth, glower, and adjust Czechoslovakia's boundaries by pressures that were scarcely-less u war than if the fighting had really begun. Nothing has been really settled. Czechoslovakia is dismembered, resentful, helpless. No party to this sacrifice for peace is satisfied that justice has been done, or that lasting peace has been achieved. 'Yet in South Africa the century-old dispute between Bolivia and Paraguay .over-the Gran Chaco -territory has been laid to rest forever. The-presidents of Argentina, Brazil. Chile,-the United States. Peru, and Uruguay have sealed four years of difficult peace negotiations by declineat- ing tlie boundary between the countries. -During the next two years it will be finally- surveyed jand-.marked, while troops of both countries are kept away from the new frontier. 'People in'the*United States seldom .recognize the bitterness of this dispute. Paraguay, and .Bolivia have fought in the past as few countries have even fought. A three-year war was concluded in 1935, leaving both countries exhausted and disrupted. ^Natural recognition .Of the futility of all this by the .people of both countries was aided Joy kindly and impartial offers of other South American .countries to mediate. The (Pan-American Peace Conference at Montevideo helped. The patient, -tactful services of American diplomats, Spruille Braden in-Colombia and Alexander .Weddell in Argentina, helped. It is doubtful if American diplomacy can show anything more to its credit in many years than hs\part ,in this victory of peace. _ . Bolivia and ..Paraguay hated, and fought t and' almost died. But they learned the lesson of war's futility. And they applied the lesson in a sane, j civilized settlement.Q£ .their differences. Both countries must inevitably gain j by this mutual itriumph. i _-.J£urqpe,has,:alsp fought, and hated, and its very civilization is now in grave danger. But the lesson has not been learned there.

Those original : prjnciples, included .the institution of one day .of .rest in seven, cleanliness of .the .human body, the use of clean food, the protection of 'water supplies and .food supplies, cleanliness and -sanitation in communal life, ilaws regarding sex relationships, the practice of circulmcision, and the prevention.of .contagious diseases. Among the ancient > Greeks .the practice of preventive medicine included strengthening of .the body of routine : systems of exercise, control of the diet, cleanliness, and the use of sunlight, fresh air, and baths. However, the type of preventive medicine that was to save enormous numbers of lives and extend the average length of life from thirty-five years to more than sixty years came r-s the result of great discoveries made during the last few hundred years. When Edward Jenner learned to in" oculate against smallpox, people with ." the scars of this disease upon their faces began to be infrequent in civilized communities. But the principle which Jenner introduced has come U be the basis of inoculation agains typhcid fever; diphtheria, scarlet fevoi and 'many other infectious diseases.

Deems Taylor, composer critic, and music commentator, is known to radio listeners as one who .can make classical works easier to accept and enjoyed. Bill only Disney's name spells box office for every kind of audience. It Cost S'on Much. So N>iw It'll Cost More This new enterprise began on a small scale about a year ago when Stokowski said he'd like to conduct a Silly Symphony or something. They talk-ed and decided to do, instead, Dukas' "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." 'But this would be only a short subject, and it would cost well over 51)00,000, and it just couldn't make a profit. Disney was reluctant to abandon the scheme, and finally he proposed going whole-hog and making SERIAL STORY MURDER TO MUSIC In 1668, Ramazzini, a medical practitioner of Italy, first called attention ;o industrial diseases. He recognized he fundamental factors concerned in such diseases and even indicated methods of prevention. It is strange that more than two hundred and fifty years lad to pass before the world recognized the significance of his contributions to human welfare. Not much more than a century has massed since Phillippe Pinel, a physician of Paris, first struck the chains from the mentally deranged and introduced humanity into their care. We have come very far since that time, and today mental hygiene and the' study of the 'nventally defective are be- i ginning to introduce preventive rned- I icine into this field.

The .greatest problem was then, and still is, -.that of using a farmed conductor and orchestra playing known masterpieces for nn animated cartoon and still having an acceptable blend of fantasy nnd reality. And how could' ithc'transltions be made between selections nnd different picture-stories so that the whole film would hang together? Us A Little Complex, But Stick Around Whnt they hnve decided, as Deems Taylor bus explained to me is this: The orchestra nnd £.tokowsk! will be shown in brief flashes on the screen, and only in silhoutte. Thus there will not be too great n contrast. Also, the orchestra and its leader will be made to dissolve into an orchestra of insects.

The list, us it .stands today, includes these eit;ht: "Cyilalise" (1'ierne); "A Night mi Bald Mountain"(Moiissorg- ••l<y>; "Moonlight" (Debussy); "Nut- ernker .Snito" (TscliiiiUovsky); "Kites ol Spring" (Mnivin.sky); "Dance of the Hours" i|'onchio!li>; Buch's Toccata and Fugo." and thi; Dukas music- story . How they'll be shown isn't fully decided, except in some eases. The Bach piece may open the program, and its picturi/.ition likely will be in an abstract form, like n moving mader- nistic painting. "Bald Momrtain" will be full of hobgoblins; "Moonlight" w iH l, 1W e a moon pool ;md white herons; and "Rite <A Spring" will go back to primeval times and the growth-stirring of its life in the world. "Dance of the Hours" was selected lor its funny possibilities because it's tuch hackneyed composition. Taylor will lalk alxuit it as a favorite ballot number and on the screen will appear a magnificent b;?llroom which you'll expect to see filled with lovely ballerinas.

'You don't really work for a living,' they all say. 'You just play and play—and get paid for it!' That's what everybody says, and now you say it." The gossip writer motioned to an empty chair.

But in the Golden Bowl of the Pacific-Plaza ice water costs almost as much as a highball. But anything." Tait fingered -the frosty glass of ice water which Mackey's waiter had set down 'before him. "Archie, do you know that ; girl. over there . . . the honey blond? Isn't her name Starr?" "It most assuredly is. And when I say Starr I mean Starr. Her old man is Aaron Starr and'he doesn't, use tax tokens for money, Mr. Tail." "You know her then?" "Of course. I know everybody." "Introduce me?" "It's as good as done," Archie Mackey said. When Nelda Starr and her dark partner danced near his table, Mackey said, "Come join us when the number is over." The blond head nodded almost imperceptibly. Mackey smiled at Tait. "There you are. In a moment you'll be acquainted with Nelda Starr. But I warn you . . ." "Of what?" : "Miss Nelda is what is known locally as dynamite. She is a spoiled, unstable creature who creates considerable trouble .for the male of the species. May I inquire your interest in the lady?" Tait grinned. "I'm interested in her perfume." * * * HPHE columnist's eyes widened, "Since when," he inquired with irony, "since when has a newspaper photographer grown aesthetic? I can tell you right now about her perfume. It probably costs $50 an ounce if it costs a some rumors place it at if you insist Mackey signaled u waiter. Then, carefully, he lit a ciguret and watched Ta.it over the blazing pocket torch. "Bob, why don't you give me the inside on the Dombey business?" "Just one good reason, Archie. I don't know the inside." $175." "I'm not going to buy her any," Tait said. "Then she'll have no interest whatsoever in you, Mr. Tait. One buys things for Miss Nelda Starr. If it's only perfume, then you're lucky." "What did Ludden Dombey buy for her?" Mackey looked coy. "You photographers do get around, don't you?

Girls have a greater streak of in- tutitive caution than boys. They are not so fond of pranks. They have courage and imagition. both, but they don't court penalty. Caution is a feminine trait. Unlike boys, jgirls figure up the cost. At fifteen or so, the boy loses his holy order for scrapes; at least the same type of rascality doesn't appeal to him.

Bui you can tell me oil the record." "I can't, though. I don't Know no. Lud Dombey never gave her what she really wanted." "What was that?" "A spot in his band. Starr wanted to be a swing singer, featured in Lud Dombey's Swing- uteers." Tait was silent a moment. "Well . . ." he said slowly. "Progress isn't made in a straight line. She might make it yet." As he spoke, "Torchy" Stephens brought down his baton in a wide arc and the band lapsed into a sudden silence which left the "whackies" gasping in their erratic tracks. . Suddenly Tait saw Nelda Starr, alone, walking toward thoir table. He got to his feet with the columnist. He could not help staring at the girl. She was unbelievably young — hardly more than 19 or 20—and yet there was a sophistication about her that betrayed many a night in spots like the Golden Bowl. "How are you?" Archie Mac-key said. "Whore's your handsome partner?" Nelda Starr shrugged and the slight .gesture disposed of the dark man with whom she had been dancing. "Archie—please let me have a Martini." "Of course. Miss Starr, this is a very old friend of mine. Bob Tait." ~ 9 » AS he acknowledged the Inlro- -^- duction and held the Stan girl's chair out from the table, Tait caught that faint perfume. There was not the slightest question but that it was the same scent ho had delected in the Mill- bay district. And he was certain that this was the girl he had seen leaving the Claremont Apartments. She regarded him with frank interest across the table. "Tell me, aren't you the new manager of The Swingateers?' "Only temporarily," Tait said. "You see, managing a swing band isn't really in my line. I'm doing it only until—until Mrs. Dombey can find someone else." "It's a lovely band," said Nelda Starr dreamily. "A lovely bane. . . . but don't you think it need:: a singer?" Taft ignored Mackey's oblique glance. "You know, I'd been thinking the same thing." "Really?" But, for the moment Nelda Starr said nothing more on the subject. She waited in silence for .her Martini, sipped it delicately, and then said, "Tell me, Mr. Tait. Why doesn't 'Torchy' ever play 'The Cat's Meow'?" Tait hoped that he hadn't looked startled at the question. "I imagine that in deference to Dombey he's giving it a rest. You like the piece?" Nelda closed her eyes. "It was wonderful," she said. "When Lud got into the groove on that song it was like nothing human." Watching her there, with her eyes closed, her head tilted slightly .toward the ceiling, Tait heard her words re-echo in his brain: it was like nothing human.

One of the most completely useful' books of the year, certainly, must be Lancelot Hoghen's "Science for the Citizen" (Knopf: $5). You could use other adjectives, fascinating, and .so on. But "useful" seems to be the best; for today's world is constructed on a base of scientific achievements, its one hope for the tuturo rests on the prospect of further scientific progress, and if the ordinary man needs one thing more than another it is knowledge both of science's history of its potentialities. All of this Mr. Hogben furnishes, in an omnibus that covers the field of .science n.s Messers. Wells and Durant covered the fields of history and phil- csopliy—and perhaps better. It is a commonplace to say that we are on the threashhold of an gae of plenty. Mr. Hogben gives you anundor standing of pust what that abused phrnso means. Man has his future in his own hands, these days. He can remake this world in the image of his dreams — always prodided thai he imdc-rstands once and for all whul Ihc scientific process is and how it is used to the best advantage. Science is not, to Mr. Hogben, a high and holy mystery apart from everyday life. The great age of scientific and mechanical progress whiuh begim somewhere around the 18th century started chiefly, he suggests, because of deep-shaft coal mining and the needs of the merchant marine.
