Man Is Still the Master in Great Emergencies We are fond of saying that this is an age of machinery, and that the ability of the individual man doesn't count for as much now as it used to. But every once in a while something happens to prove that when the machinery goes wrong—as it inevitably does, sooner or later—we are right back in .the old spot and have nothing to rely on but the courage and resourcefulness of one man. An example is that recent wrsck of an air liner near Montgomery, Ala. • This liner, bound from Houston to New York, left the the Montgomery airport with 14 people aboard shortly after midnight. It reached an altitude of seme 1400 feet: in its cabin the lights were dimmed and the passengers wore settling back in their seats for an uneventful, drowsy trip. And then came trouble. The right-hand motor began to vibrate violently. Something was wrong. The sudden vibration broke the motor loose from its fastenings and it fell to • the earth. A gas line was severed end the plane took fire, and what had been a routine flight abruptly became an emergency freighted with the dire peril of death. . The emergency was met and passed, and nobody was killed. And why? Because the plane's chief pilot, Dave Htesong, was a cool and capable chap who knew exactly what to do, and was able to keep his head while he did it. Hissong managed to keep the left wing up while he brought the ship down. With only his landing lights, he sought out an open space on the ground and negotiated a landing. His co-pilot. C. R. Russell, gave him the minutes he needed-to do this by cutting the gas line and holding the flames back with an extinguisher. Steward Frank Gibbs saw that the safety belts of the passengers were properly tightened, and stood by to open the cabin door and help them out the moment the plane had stopped. . Nobody got hurt. It was a close call, of course; the occupants had got perhaps 20 yards from the grounded plane before it was consumed in a vast puff of flames. All in all, they had had about a minute to spare in their escape. But the point is thattheydidhavethat minute, and it was enough. The moral to all this—if that's what you want to call it—is obvious. The ' most cunningly-devised machinery fails once in a while; and when it does, everybody involved is in the soup unless the right man is in the right spot! This mechanical age has not clone away withthe old need for human capability bravery and self-possession. "' That's 3. good thing to remember. In. the last analysis, we sink or we swim by what we have in ourselves and'not by our equipment. There is no substitute for the time-honored individual virtues, and there never will be. We may build the most refined raid fool-proof machines imaginable; but if we cannot come up with a Dave Rissong when we need one we are out of luck.

MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and- of Hygcla, the Health Magazine Airplanes Well Guarded Against Masquito Carriers of Fever • The 'plax<V'Yellow Jack" has focused .public attention on a disease that used to decimate populations and which has beenf'known as among the 1 most destructve/pf all dseases; namely, yellow fever. This disease is transmit- .te'd by the'bite of a. mosquito. About 14 different varieties of .mosquitoes are 'known tQjbe- responsible. The disease has also been found not only in man but in the monkeys of the jungles of Souh America. : A .special: commission of the United States Army, including Doctors Reed, Carroll, Lazear, and Agromente, dem- onstrated conclusively :hat the disease is conveyed by he bite of a mos- quio and not in any other way. In the study of this disease many famous physicians have given their lives— Lazear, Myers, Noguchi, Stokes, Young and Lewis. About ten days after a person with yellow fever is bitten, by a mosquito that mosquito becomes capable of transfitting the disease. It is a terrible disease in which the skin is jaundiced, there are hemorrahges under the skin, the hart damaged, and there may be high fever, rapid pulse and worst of all irritability of the stomach, which is followed by the vo'.r.'iting of mucus and blood. Once the method of transmission of yellow fever was established, it became possible to stamp out much of it n the civilized world, so that at one time only a few spots on the coast of Africa and South America were infected. Now new methods of transportaton, particularly the airplane, have aroused the realization that yellow fever may come back. People travel in air- lanes. Whercever people travel, mosquitoes can travel as well. Investiga- ion of airplanes co'mirig from yellow 'ever areaes has revealed mosquities n the compartments occupied by pas- engers and in the baggage compart- nents. Sometimes the mosquitoes are on (he passcngei-s. In the United States, the public Health Service has recognized the langer. Airplanes coming from South Ymorica are disinfected to guard igain.st carrying mosquitoes which carry yellow fever. Studies nre also >eing made as to the presence of in- ected mosquitoes in various cities of he South. In August, 1937, a live 'mosquito capable of carrying yellow fever was found in the China Clipper arriving in Honolulu from Alameda, Calif. Instructions have been given to the airplane companies and to the officer in the quarantine stations to completely fumigate the planes at the time of departure.- As new methods are introduced into our lives, they bring with them new health hazards and the worker in preventive medicine must constantly keep pace with changes in our civilization.
