Spending, Like Thrift, May Be a Virtue Some little time ago a Cleveland engineer won a prize of 58000 or thereabouts, for inventing a new welding process. Since then there has been n Steady procession of salesmen to his door, and the other clay a newspaper sent a reporter out to ask the man's wife how she felt about it all. The lady was pretty wellfed up with the steady stream of callers, ns can easily be imagined; but the interesting thing about it is that the one she 'seemed to resent the most was an investment broker who submitted a carefully itemized investment .plan to take care of the prize money sensibly. What she objected to was the fact that this man's scheme was altogether too sensible: it would have accounted for every penny, leaving no smallest loophole for a little free and easy spending just for the fun of it. Perhaps this is not the best moment to suggest that there can be limits to the virtue of thrift. Yet it is somehow refreshing to run across a person whc understands that money is valuable only if it helps one to get a little racre fun out of life. We all want security, of course. Yet for most of us, the measure of Security which we get is apt to depend pretty largely on forces over whicli we have no control whatever. We can save for a rainy day as valorously as we please, but if economic maladjustment sends us a whole sucession of cloudbursts the best umprella we buy will be inadequate. Meanwhile, the money we do get is paid for by hard work. What do we buy" with it? Food, lodging, clothing—and such little extras as we can afford. And often enough it is on those extras that a good part of the fun of living depends. Maybe it is foolish, in a way, to take hard-earned cash and spend it on a trip to Yellowstone—or on a new car, a recreation room, a set of season tickets Jo the local football games, or anything else that isn't absolutely necessary. But it is foolishness of that kind that helps to make life enjoyable. Also, in a perverted sort of way, that kind of spending is a pretty fair sort of hedge against hard times. For when you have spent your money on something you wanted and have had your fun with it, you've had something no future depression is going to take rKvay from you. If you lose your job next year, or all your investments go sour, or you have to start supporting your son-in-law, that can't rob you of a good time you've already had. And perhaps the present is a good time for a little disquisition on the virtues of spending, after all. A business revival is on the way; the seers seem to agree that it will be helped along by a "buy now" campaign. A too-thrifty people could choke off that revival before it got started. In any case, there's a lot to be said for this Cleveland woman's rebellion against the "too sensible" plan for handling her money. The really sensible way, often enough, is the one which allows for some totally unnecessary spending. •E. M. Reff. U. S. Pat. O£t. By DB. MORRIS F1SHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hygeia, the Health Magazine 'Diagnosis and Nursing Important in Treatment of Pneumonia Whereas it was once thought that there was. but a single pneumonia germ, it is now known that there are many different types Classification includes up to 22 or more Some types are much more mportant than others, because, of the frequency with which they are found. Soir»e forms of • pneumonia germ which are not virulent are found frequently in the mouths of people so that bacteriologists report that 80 to 90 per cent of people carry pneumonia germs. Many times, however, these germs are not capable of causing disease in a normal person. It seems possible that sometimes a germ which is not ordinarily virulent ma ytake on new form in which, it is quite dangerous. The germs do not live long outside the human body. When they are exposed to sunlight they die in a short time. Apparently an hour and a half is the limit of time a germ can live in sunlight. There are records indicating that germs have lived as long as Po/;(ica/ 4rtfi0iiiicem<mfs The Star Is authorized to mnke the following candidate announcements Subject to the action of the city Democratic primary election Wednesday, November 30: • For Mayor J.

There nre also records that germs suspended in the nir in badly ventilated rooms in which persons with pneumonia hoye coughed have lived 'or several hours Such virulent get'm's coming in contact with a person who is susceptible or who is in contact with large numbers of people may cause jneumonia. The symptons of pneumonia have jeen so frequently described that little is to be gained by telling about them again. It is important to prevent he spread of this most fatal of alt icute diseases. In preventing the spread of pneumonia, it is nccesary to bear in mind that it attacks those who have their resistance lowered by n alchol, or by similar factors that essen resistance. The combination of attendance at i football game on a cold wet day, with inadequate protection against he winter, and overimlulagunce from he contacts of a pocket flask, is an nvitation to pneumonia. Nowadays there are. new methods f diagonisis and of treatment which can be carried out by competetcnt lectors, and which save the lives of ;reat numbers of those who have the lisease. The fact which is most important is getting an ea rly diagnosis ind then treatment. Nursing is so mportant that most modern doctors, f possible, put the person with pneumonia in a hospital.

Ernest Hemingway's new play, "The Tifth Column" (Scribner's: $2.75), is a tucly of the Spanish war written un- ler pressure—both external and in- ernal. The external pressure was supplied the rebel airplanes, which bombed /laclricl liberally during the time Mr. Hemingway was writing the play. As is notes in a preface, stfm'e 30 or more >ombs exploded in the immediate vi- inity of his hotel while he was work- ng on the manuscript; his accounts if airplane raids, then, can be taken as authentic. The internal pressure comes from VIr. Hemingway's own emotions—the mpact on his mind and heart of the things he saw at the front. And thi.s jressure has given a new heat and in- ensity to what he has written; the occasional fumbling aimlessness of "To •lave and Have Not" is gone Mrs. Hemingway now has Something to say and knows precisely how he wants to say it. "The Fifth Column," accordingly, nVakes excellent reading; it sounds as f it would be first-rate theater, if—as seems likely—it ever reaches Broadway. It has to do with espionage and counter-espionage in wartime Madrid, with loyalist agenLs ferreting out the rebel sympahizers who are directing the reael attacks. It is a grim, swift-moving and savag melodrama, with passages of inspiried writing; ail in all, it is very much worth reading. Included in the book are some two- score short stories and sketches, some of them new, some of them previouly published, some of them' first-rate and some of them so-so. The collection is good to have; but it is "The Fifth Column" that is the main attraction as far as this reviewer is concerned.
