Re-Armament Possible By Democratic Means An ominous murmur is beginning to be heard in the Innd in connction with the new re»armamen program. This program, it is explained, will be terribly expensive. Further, it will have to be rushed. In re-arming we shall be competing, more or less indirectly, with the great totalitarian nations, and because we are a free country we shall be at a great disadvantage in the competition. .Therefore, it-is argued, we 'might as well face the fact that in order to re-arm we shall have to surrender some of our cherished liberties. Neither labor nor capital can expect ordinary treatment; national secuity is at stake, and we shall have to countennce all sorts of interference with profit levels, wage scale and the like. It would be a fine thing if, before this sort of talk spread any farther, the people as a whole would get up on their collective hind legs and shout it down once and for all. At first blush H .sounds reasonable enough, to be sure. The totalitarian states can re-arm cheaply—comparatively ceahply, anyway. They can conscript labor and commandeer factories and raw materials. They can tell working men to toil longer hours at reduced wages and make them like it. They can set whatever prices they choose for materials and can ration the supplies as they choose. They can force industries to produce at any profit level the bureaucracy may decide, on. For the duration of the rearmament drive they can suspend any or all of the ordinary laws of economics. A land which can do none of those things will have a hard time matching, ship for ship, gun for gun and plane for plane with these dictator-ruled nations. It will pay much more for what it gets and it will take longer to get it. - -And so we meet this new argument—that until we have re-armed sufficiently •we ought to borrow a few ideas from the people we are re-arming against. _ . Now it happens that-one of the.principal things we are re-arming for is the defense of the American way of life. It is not merely our corrirntercial interests which seem to be threatened; it is the whole system of a free society, the whole network of ideals and beliefs and privileges under which, as we believe, human beings have the best possible chance to gain a little ground in their never-ending pursuit of happiness. And it also happens that these "handicaps" which make our re-armament slow.and costly are fundamental parts of that system. Give them up, and the system itself is no longer recognizable. Freedom of capital and labor are as vital hrthe American way of life as freedtfrn: of speech and freedom of religion. So if we suspend or infringe on them in order to compete with the Fascists, we lose ,the battle Before it begins. Whatever happens after that, we don't Win. We give Fascism its greatest victory right at the start. . It is of the highest importance that we get straight on that point right now. We can pay any price for re-armament—except that price. The Family Doctor oc. By DR. MORRIS FJSHEEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hygeia, the Health Magazine Pneumonia Is Captain of the Men of Death' Among Infections With the coming of the football season, cold, chill winds of fall and winter, and increased exposure of the body to the atmosphere the pneumonia rate begins to rise. Today •pneumonia is among the most serious of all of the diseases and has certainly become the "captain of the men of death" among acute infections. This phrase, commonly credited to Wil- liam Osier, actually was first used by John Bunyan, author of "Pilgrim's Progress" in realitionship to consumption. Pneumonia was known to ancient physicians and was described as long as 2200 years ago by Greek doctors. Our modern knowledge of the disease 1 however, is credited to that famous French physician, Laennaec, who in- Political Announcements VALUABLE HARD FRUIT HORIZONTAL 1 Pictured tropical fruit. 7 It grows on ' the coco -. 11 Opposed to dead. 12 Herb. 13 One that dilutes. 15 Plant shoot. 16 Vigor. 17 Guinea. 18 Arabian tea shrub. 19 Afternoon meal. 20 Constellation, Altar 21 Dry 23,Right. 24 Stone-hurling engine. 29 Swing. ,30 Keno. 31 Expectations. 33 Aches. 35 Habit. 37 Blackened with ink. 39 Frozen desserts. 40 Packs away.

It is believed that pneumonia Is frequently transmitted from one person to another as are other diseases 3f the lungs nnd the breathing tracts, but it is known also, that the germs of pneumonia may be carried in the mouth, nose and throats of healthy persons. Wherever people arc crowded together, the incidence of pneumonia. Pneumonia is nraticulany serious in little children and in okl people and, of course, little children and uld people arc more affected than those of middle ygc. For very old people, pneumonia has been called the friend of the aged, because those who are old escape gradual decay and dissolution, pnsing with an illness that is suden, short and not often painful. Pneumonia is much more common n the city than in the country simply lecnuso' of the overcrowding that ex- sts in cities. Moreover, it is much more common in those who are exposed to cold and to the hardships of life, in people who have their resis- ; ance weakened, and in those suffering rom chronic disease or who over-indulge in alcohol. Whereas many other infectious diseases can attack a person but once pneumonia may attack on repeated occasions. Although it has not been definetly proved that pneumonia is issociated with cold and with chill-- ng the experience of great numbers of< doctors almost certainly establishes such a relationship.
