Here Is an Opportunity For Straight Thinking The world is governed more and more by emotion, and less and less by thought. That is the greatest dangey- of our day. If any sanity and decency is to be kept in the world, people must think more. That means all people, not just the leaders. That is harder than just to shout "Hoo-ray!" or "Boo!" But it must be done. Let's take a laboratory .example, .the latest Lindbergh affair. Chances are that one either .considers Lindbergh a nasty Fascist spy who intrigued against the Soviet Union, or a wise observer who served peace and the world by telling--the truth about the Russian air force, in quarters where that knowledge was badly needed. Yet how far is one justified ;in drawing either conclusion? Let's re-survey the facts, and see whether opinion is conditioned by feelings toward Russia, the Soviets, Hitler, Chamberlain, or by known facts. Lindbergh went to Russia. He was entertained by Russian airmen with "the usual courtesies, and shown as much of Russian air strength as the Russians cared to show. He returned to England. Several magazines there printed a rumor that Lindbergh had made certain comments uncomplimentary to the Russian air . force at a social event and to person.-* of influence in the British government. •' His Russian host-aviators immediately came out with a violent statement condemning Lindbergh as a paid liar and a Fascist spy. The world promptly took sides. Lindbergh himself remained silent.yj Beyond the published rumor, how much actual proof has been shown that Lindbergh said the things attributed to him? Very little. The central fact of the whole affair remains unverified. Assuming, however, that Lindbergh said the things attributed to him, •were .they true? Obviously the effectiveness of any air force before actual test in-war is a matter of opinion. It is not a matter on which to use terms like "liar." There can be no proof. Now the third .accusation: That Lindbergh was a paid spy for Fascism, and-made such a-report on Russian aviation purely to influence Britain against opposing Hitler. That .is a nasty accusation. It ought not to have been made without-the strongest evidence. But is there any evidence? None at all. It is a plausible-sounding hypothesis, but of proof there is not an iota. Three belief-hurdles have been quickly leaped by many people in this affair. They conclude: 1. Lindbergh said or did not say what he was reported to have said. 2. It was or-was nqttrue. 3. It was or was not said with the worst kind of-ulterior motive. Yetallthree conclusions rest on assumptions not proved. All-these things were reported in some letail by the newspapers, and properly so, because they were news. But if ever there was a case for suspended judgment on the part of the reader, this is .it. The whole thing is a question of fact, and the fact is by no means established. •This is the kind of testing, and searching which Americans must apply to .all news, especially foreign news, these days if- we are to choose a course that is wise and just, and riot merely be blown on winds of passion and demagoguery. •"!.•: The Family Doctor R»f. 00. By DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hygeia, the Health Magazine -Common Skin Diseases in Children May Become 1 Extremely Serious Besides the eruptions on the skin associated with such infectious ^diseases as scarlet fever, measles, chicken .pox and sensitivities of foods, children suffer with infections of the skin that are particularly annoyng. The most common conditions are impetigo, scabies, ringworm, and the spots caused by var ious parasites. In impetigo little blisters filled with pus appear mainly on the hands anc face. These vary in size from tiny lesions about the size of the head of a pin to large yellowish looking bumps. Tuesday, Nayemb'er 1,1938 Political Announcements The Star Is authorized to moke the .following cniidldnie announcements subject to the action of the city Democratic prlmnry election Wednesday, November 30: ' For Mnyor ' J. A. EMBREE For Alderman, Ward One A. C. ERWIN J. R. WILLIAMS For Alderman, Ward Four SYD MCMATH Eventually several of these bumps may run together, become covered with scabs and crusts, and produce n most unsightly appearance. The condition can be sprend from one :hild to another by direct contact or t>y the use of a crfnVmon wash cloth or towel, or by contaminated fingers. For his reason a child with impetigo should 30 kept away from other children un;il the condition has been brought under control. Doctors know thnt strict cleanliness is necessary to bring the condition under control. After the tis- lues are thoroguhly cleaned with soap and warm water and the infectious material removed to some extent he will prescribe an ointment suited to the skin of the child concerned and cap- ible "of destroying the infectious organisms. When this condition gets out of con- Irol in the wards of a hospital, in an orphan asylum, or anywhere else, it should be considered most serious, and efforts should be persistent until new cases fail to appear. Several times this column has told about scabies, also called the itch, cuban its, seven-year itch, and by other names An old market wo'nvan in Italy discovered that sulphur will control it. The condition is brought about by a Ittle parasite that burrows under skin wherever it is moist and thin, particularly between the fingers. Incidentally it is the female itch mite that causes the trouble. Her activities in fulfilling her destiny to produce more itch mites under the skin are wha tcause the itching. This condition spreads easily from one person to another. Once it got loose on the skins and in the costumes of an. entire opera company and the effecf on a production of Aida changed that great operatic tragedy into a comedy. In clearing up an outbreak of scabies it may be necessary to boil every bit of clothing or textiles with which the infected person has been in contact and to destroy other materials. Persistent treatment with the sulphur lotions and ointments that he doctor prescribes will clear up m'ost cases. Ring worm, particularly the form known as athlete's foot, is now so common that practically everybody knows something about it. But it should not be regarded lightly because a persistent case of ringworm can actually incapacitate a man from work, and once loose in a school or gymnasium may attack nearly every child that comes in contact with it. The treatment may involve not only all sorts of antiseptics, but also the use of ultraviolet rays, X-rays and stll other special forms of Vr.'edical activity.
