Record of the Past Is Reason for Optimism Unless all signs fail, America is taking a new climb out of the depression Industrial production expanded in October for the fifth consecutive month unemployment figures are dropping rapidly, and business s=>ntir-ent ns n whole is unnusually optimistic. No one knows, of course, how far and how fast this climb will be continued. We shan t be able to say goodby to this depression until our business indices have reached the 1929 level; indeed, because our population is ere-iter now than it was. then, that level will have to be surpassed before we can truly say thnt nafaon-wide prosperity is here again. irW^rti^ky^t u'lfth 0 ' be 3 P<?rf6Ct gUWe ' ln ° • W0rld ^ ehanged "s tlle Saturday, December 3; 1938 During the last half century, American business has been hit by five full- drew depressions-including the present one.

Ground down -oy one of the most oppressive regimes that ever existed, these blacks were stirred to action when the aBstllle fell in 1789; in less than two decades they won not only freedom from slavery "but independence from France. Their story is told by C. L. R. James .}-» Black Jacobins" (Dial press: •3.75). end a colorful, terrifying and thought-provoking story it is. A year before the .Bastfile fell, there was no slight sign that the half-million slaves in the French colony of San Do- tninso had about reached the end of their servitude. But the French revolution had world-wide repercus- -ions and nowhere did it jar more violently than in San Domingo. The I* ' rench masses, when they found their /oice, insisted that freedom be extended to the black men across the sen md presently the island was aflnme. Strangely enough, the blacks won their freedom by their own resour-se.s. ince the intitinl impetus had been given. Somehow, these downtrodden x-slaves produced a statcimm like oussamt Louverture, a military genus ike Dessaline ;lhey fought British •panish and French in turn, anni- troops, suffered and inflicted one'of the most horrible atrocities in the history of all warfare—mid in the end made their freeclo mgoocl. Mr. James presents this story not as a bloody bit of ancient history but as a peculiarly apposite and timely study of revolution. His book ha", overtone which make it well wortl reading, aside from the story's intrinsic interest. _ M. tttg.tr. 3. Fat By DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN^ . —*» "«•• jTiwnitio r J^nuBIft Edtfof, Journal of the American Medical Assodntlon, nhd of Hygeta, the Health Magazine Athletes Should Watch Weight When They Stou Athletic Activity ' People often wonder whether men who have done much rowing, running, swimming, or played much basketbny. football or baseball are likely to have heart disease later in Hfe. It is usually believed that the at- hete develops a heart that is large in response to the stresses that are placed upon it and thnt as a result of thnt, when he stops' his athletics, degeneration occurs and his heart be- comes weakened. In those sports in which the mus-i cular activity lasts for n long time.' as, for example, in rowing In long- distance swimming or running, the heart is likely to be large in relationship to the size of the body. Sojne authorities feel, however, that the men are able to do the athletics because they have large hearts rather than that they have large hearts because of Well-controlled athletics will never harm a heart thnt is normal and heal thy. The chief danger to the athlete, ns to everyone else, is the danger thnt he will undertake his athletic activities too soon after he has hat! n severe cold, Influenza, pneumonia or some 1 other illness nnd Hint under such circumstance his heart will not be able to hear what is, for him ns for anyone else, an excessive strain. Obviously, it is of the greatest importance thnt every person who indulges jn_nthlelics have the henrt ex- serious , ",v, henrt is wenk, the young man is likely to find it out after he goes into athletics and actually be unable to continue the performances. When an athlete gives up ills muscular work because he goes Into business, because he gets married or for some other reason, it is not only the henrt thnt is subjected to new circumstances but also the body as n whole. The nlhlcte who gives tip training la likely who gives up training Is likely to begin eating more than he did previously. Soon he develops a serious increase iii weight. The failure to indulge in exercise to any extent, associated with the overeating brings on the degeneration thnt is typical of the period after middle nge. The best advice, therefore; is tof the mijii who lias been athletic to try to keep himself reasonably fit after ho gives up athletics by controlling (lie amount of food and drink that he takes, by continuing n resaonable amount of exercise, and suitable attention to his body. If he will watch his weight and his blood pressure and if he will animation lo determine whether or not the organs of the body arc fun- cturing normally, there is no reason why the athleta.should not. live as long as anyone else "ml, indeed, even longer, So They Say If we could only gel together without aify lawyers 'hanging 'iround. we could work out something.—Frank WiiUnco, who says hi 1 is I'm: luisbnnd of Mac West, commenUng on his.plnn In /Ml n divorce, I'm out to be-it the record cf a guy 1 u«cil to. pnintn ibou 1 His name w.-s Methuselah. — Rev.
