Threat of Bombing Cities Is Ace Card of Dictators > Word from overseas has it that the British government hopes for an international agreement to ban the bombing of civilians in wartime. Negotiations, for a four-power treaty to that effect tre to begin shortly, it is said, with Germany, Italy, France and England as the interested parties. An agreement like that would be very nice, if it could just be signed and lived up to. Yet one does not needto be an incurable cynic to suspect that such an agreement is the one thing which the Fascist powers will not grant. It'is common knowledge that the democracies knuckled under to the dictatorships at Munich because they were scared to death of what the German and Italian air forces might do to them. England still has tht world's greatest navy, an dthe French army—despite all that has been said about German rearmament—is still as strong as any in Europe, if not stronger. Yet because they were outclassed in the air, England and France caved in. And that fact carries its own moral. While military experts are not yet unanimous about the role of air power in modern warfare, it is pretty generally agreed that—from a strictly military point of view—airplanes cannot win a war, in the old sense, by themselves. The'y cannot seize and hold territory. They cannot destroy armies. The final decision still belongs to the man on the ground. So the democracies were not threatened with military defeat, in the old style, at Munich. What they were threatened with was something very dif- efrent—and infinitely worse: destruction of then- great cities, the death of many- thousands of women and children, a disorganization of civil life on a terrible scale. It was this threat that compelled them to back down. They could have won, the war; but they could not have won it without suffering losses too frightful.to contemplate. toother words, the threat of torching civilians was the the ace card held by the Fascists. It was the one card which the democracies could not match. Without it, Hitler could not for one minute have overawed his rivals. It is clear, then, that any international agreement' to outlaw the bombing of civilians would (if entered into sincerely and lived up to on all sides) deprive the dictator states of the one big advantage which has enabled them to get their own way. : _ Does anyone suppose that Hitler and Mussolini would agree to any such thing? The world today needs few things more desperately than it needs an end to this threat of raining death on defenseless civilians. But to expect those who profit by the use of that threat to eiveit up meekly and without protest is like expecting the lion and the lamb to lie down together in perfect friendship.

MORRIS F1SHBEEN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and ot "" ' the llenlHi " Modern Medical Science Extends Average Duration of Life The will to live is deeply rooted in all mankind. From the beglnlng of time man has sought not increasing years, but increasing years ot usefulness. One of our leading biologists, Dr. Ray* moncl Penl of Johns Hopkins, indicates thnt until we are 20 years old we do no pay much attention as long we live, but after thnt age we begin to think what we can do to preserve our health and to realize the 70 years of age which is the life cycle of man. Apparently the older we get the more anxious we are to keep on living. Just a few days ago a man who had reached the age of 87 wrote, asking a lot of questions because he wanted to be certain to reach the age of 90. With the development of modem medicine gerat help has come to enable most human beings to reach at least GO years of age. This help, however, is chiefly In the earlier years of life. In 1890 only 72 per cent ot boy babies reached 10 years of age; now 01 per cent rench 10'years of age, Tn 1890, 600 out of every 10,000 whit males who had reached 70 years of age manag ed to live to the age of 90. Now only 563 out of every 10,000 white males who have reached the age of 70 live to reach 90, (Moreover, (here is no evidence at all thnnt theh life cycle of man has been extended and there docs not seem to he any likelyhood that it will be in thenenr future. All that lias been changed is the average duration of life. Frequently I have pointed out in these columns that the people who live long are those who come from parents and grandparents wHo have lived long. The sons of fathers who did not live long may reasonably txpect to live a shorter period of time than the sons of fathers who did live long. This factor becomes operative more particularly after the age of 60. Thus at the age of GO th sons of fathers who lived to be 80 have n life expectancy thnt is -10 per cent greater than that of the sons of fathers Who died before the nge of 50. In his consideration if the subject Dr. Raymond Penrl has made n special study of the realntionship of the use of tilcholic beverages to long life. Everybody knows the anecdotes of the old men who lived long and were persistent liquor drinkers nnd of the old men who lived long and never drank n drop of alchol. ht'c statement is sometimes made thnt the latter did not live longer but that it only seemed longer. Nevertheless, the exact scien- tifc study of this question leads to the goncrnlconclusion that moderate drinking docs not slgnificatly shorten life, but thnt heavy drinking does seriously diminish the length of life. Investigations also showed quite conclusively that after the age of 40 to 45 a man will shorten his life by heavy physical labor.
