Bathhouse John a Product of Bad Government surmising to read of the death the other day of Chicago's ; Iderman. "Bathhouse John" Coughlin. The man belonged to another erv he was a «et piece from the day of the muckrakers, and it wn, c hard to r?sli"p that he had survived into. these post-depression times. AMcrman Coughlin was a picturesque figure— a canny, dapper, jovial person with a flair for writing verse and a marvelous sense of political realism. And aUhoush it was this picturesqueness of his which made him famous, he wa=> a fignifieant figure in American politics— a man whose career is deeply towftupt've for all. students of the ins and outs of democracy. The ward boss is a familiar creature in our municipal life, and Coughlin Wgs typical of the breed. In alliance with the equally- famous "Hinky Dink" Ker<mu;he rilled the first ward of Chicago for decades, delivering its votes with monotonous regularity and battening on the time-honored mainstays of priv- il^ge, protection and perquisites. Naturally enough, he was execrated by the BTod rwople who are pained by civic corruption and misrule; yet somehow he r- 0 ld his place to the end, and the periodic waves of reform never unseated him.. For the ^reformers seldom understand the Bathhouse Johns and the Hinky Dinks. Usually they look on such men as the causes of corrupt government, whereas in reality they are the symptoms of it- And it is that ftttle fact which makes the career of a man like Coughlin worth study. The ward boss doesn't exist in a vacuum. Like all other social institutions, he arises because he is needed. He is the product of forces which our social organization sets in motion, and the only way to end the kind of government he represents is to change those forces. If we have wide slum areas, great masses of people who live forever on the knife edge of utter insecurity, a city government which has at its disposal favors -that will mean millions to the recipients, powerful interests which insist that that government do nothing to disturb them— if we have all of those things, as we have in most chips, then we have the ingredients of bad government. . .The, bad government which results may operate through such men as Bathhouse John; but such men are not the prime movers. Chicago's government will be no better, now that this particular boas is dead. The conditions which produced him have not changed. Through public education, through the evolution of a more just social system, through the raising of our standards of civic morality— in such ways we may eventually attain honest, efficient and impartial civic government. Until that day comes, we shall just have to put up with our ward bosses, Tuesday November 2fl, 1938 Political Announcements The Star is authorized to mako the following candidate announcements subject to the action of the city Democratic primary election Wednesday, November 30: For Mayor J.

Once the strategic Ottoman city was conquered, generals believed, hundreds of thousands of Allied troops would be freed to fight elsewhere and a clear road would be theirs to Russia. Capture Constantinople, it was said, and the war would end shortly. > So in the dim dawn of April 25, 1915, the Twenty-fifth division landed at Gallipoli in the Dardanelles. They debarked at fivd positions below the Hclles 'cliff, and were entangled almost at once in the barbed wire strung through the water. Then, from their fortified trenches, the withering fire of the Turks began. The Allies flung nearly 500,000 men against that hail of death, lost a quarter million in the attack. For eight months the grim struggle went on, until at last floods and winter pressed the Allies to evacuation. Seldom had there been a finer epic display of courage, but defeat was inevitable. Leading the Allies in attack ^yere the intrepid Anzacs, Australian and New Zealand troops. They were so-called from the combination of letters, A. N. Z. A. C.—Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. An Anzac trooper is shown hero on a N e w Zealand stamp, one of two commem- o r a t i n g the 21st anniversary of the heroic but fut i1e engagement at GalU- poli. •; '(Copyright. 1338, NBA Service, Inc.') By DR, MORRIS F1SHBEIN Editor, Journal of tlie American Medical Association, anil of Hygcla, the Health Mngnzliie Laughter an Involuntary. Reaction Plays Large Part in Qtir Lives All sorts of books have been written about laughter and its significance in relationship to health and human welfare. Real laughter is an involuntary reaction like yawning or crying. Few people are able to give a false laugh the sound of reality. Certain aiiim'nls may mako sounds like those of human laughter, but while animals may indicate enjoyment, no other animal but man actually laughs. Some physiologists hnvo claimed that laughter is n healthful performance because it depends on a series of spasmodic repeated contractions of all of the muscles involved in breathing, and especially of the diaphragm. The contraction of the muscles of the face that is associated with laughter is also •perhaps helpful—but laughter docs not always yield a pleasant appearance Children laugh -nrore frequently than adults probably because they have not yet had the experience that is associated with adult years. Perhaps by the tithe we arc older, there is too inuch of sadness in our memories to encourage Inughter. In general, laughter has been found to be a most healthful phenomenon. Most of the proverbs associated with laughter indicate that point of view: For example, laugh and grow fat; laugh nncl.be well, and similar phrases. There are, however, certain diseases in which laughter may be excessive, uncontrollable nud actually indicate tile pres- •once of mental disease. There seem to be some diforfences of opinion as to just what time of life the baby first laughs, Even tiny babies seem to smile, which ViVosl scientists are convinced is not actually laughter but merely an expression of some'internal mechanism perhaps associated with "gas on the stomach." Real laughter apparently appears first in babies after they ore one month old and In many babies• much Inter. Laughter' is usually not associated with any harmful reaction except that occasionally it may be followed by hiccups duo to the stimulation of the diaphragm. Occasionally, also, when Inughter is excessive, it may be nsso- clated with a sudden revulsion of the sto'iu'nch or contraction of the diaphragm resulting In vomiting. It is, of course, also known that excessive laughter may destroy the control of the baby over the nervous and muscular mechanism associated with bodily exretipss so that children may occasionally soi Hhemsolves following excessive laughter For this reason, it is well to avoid stimulation of excessive laughter by tickling or other means of stimulation. The complete absence of laughter in a child is probably to be associated with a qonditlon of ill - health.' If a child fails to laugh with a fair amount of frequency by the lime ithris reached two or three ',r.onth<t of ago. somb ox- Irnnenus cause must be sought for this failure.
