Indignation and Sorrow Should Mean—Action The United States has blown off ;i good deal of steam lately, telling the world how indignant it is over Hitler's most recent outrages against the Jews. This has been all to the good. The sentiment does the country credit, and it has undoubtedly helped to solidify sentiment against the Nazi philosophy of life. But it is about time for the people of the United Str.tes to ask themselves just how indignant and outraged they really are. Are they, in other words, indignant and outraged enough to do .something concrete and substantial for the victmis of the Hitler terror? Germany contains something in tht- neighborhood of half a million Jews ivery consideration of humanity and plain decency demands that as manv as possible of these luckless people be moved from the country. But to do "that will take a great deal of money, tume careful piminuig-and last but not Wast, the provision of a new place for them to live Diplomatic relations have not been severed, but by recalling it.s ambas- rador f and voicing its indignation ir. less official but equally eloquent wavs. rh ! tU , n / "' ^ tates h ,f *° wn * at thr fate of the.se people fc-to „ certain ex- Ki.t. at least—a matter in which it is directly concerned ,iv« VV som h SU ^ ests , Ule P**iWlity that the people of the United States might 6.™ some serious thought to the question of relaxing their immigration r»- See?

Beauty Shop, 119 IM-Dec-30c Preached Prohibition To America in !849 A SPARE, bushy-haired figure, •'* Ireland's famed "Apostle of Temperance," Father Mathew, stepped from the steamer Ash bur- ton at New York June 9, 1849, to receive a tumultuous welcome. He had come to the United States to preach prohibition. He was officially greeted on July 2 when 'thousands more gathered in his honor. For two weeks thereafter there were receptions in City Hall. He visited countless churches and induced I many to take the pledge of absti- i nence. From New York the devout Vlathew went to Boston where he neld sessions on the Commons, -ns most dramatic moment in the listoric old city came when 6000 ersons held Up their hands in a single silent pledge. From a tour of New England, .bather Mathew journeyed to Washington where he was .welcomed by President Filitnoro and jn both the House and Senate He went next to the south. In one small town on the Mississippi alone, 700 followers took his oath The distinguished Irish visitor spent two and one-half years in America, toured 37,000 miles through 25 states. More than 600,000 persons took the oath. H came at a time when dozens o orators traveled the country ii the cause of prohibition, he wa past CO, had suffered a stroke o paralysis and ill health before hi trip. Yet he left the greatest ira pression on all. He returned to Ireland in-1851 He as shown here on one of two current Irish stamps honoring his work and memory. <Copyri B ht. 1.935, NEA service luc New Shock Treatments May Mean Great Reduction of Insanity In planning the National Health Program authorities endeavoring to estimate how much in the waypf facilities would be required for the increase in coses of mental disease in cases of mental disease. Today patients with mental disease occupy 47 per cent of he total available hospital beds In the Urn i ted States and the annual cost for J15 °' 000 ' 000 The number of people in. hospitals for mental disease increased more than -10 per cent from 1926 to 193G. All sorts i of explanations are offered to a.ccpun"t for this increase. According to Harold fr ??'" ° f lhe Uniteci Stfltes Public Health Service, the apparent increase in mental disease is usually crdited to the complxity and strain of modern life. This increased strain is. in turn associated with the tendency of more and more people to live in cities where the speed of life j s far greater than in rural areas. A part of the increase is due to the fact that we now recognize as abnormal, conditions which were formerly given little attention. The development of child guidance clinics and the increase in study of mental proble'ms in recent years is an indication of out- changing point of view. The only way we have of determining the extent of mental disease is by the number of people assigned to hospitals for the care of the mentally de- decuve and.the insane. This does not include the vast numbers who are on the borderline and who may show onlv occasional temporary aberrations. The fact.that more and more people are living in the cities with less opportunity to take care of the sick «it home, means that more and m«re people will be sent to hospitals. Therefore, the number of people ad'mitted to nental hospitals is not necessarily an accurate measure of the number of cases. Notwithstanding these deductions however, mental aberration I.s still a serious matter in the United Slates It is believed that out of the Z.I'MROO childrn born in Iftffi vnually children born in 1!OT, eventually 110(100 to 120,00 will be committed to hospitals for mental disease. Even though the incidence of mental disease has not been increasinR as rapidly as is suppoed, it is a vast and .significant problem. Fortunately, new discoveries relative to the treatment of general paresis and dementin praeco.x may have an important effect on the nu'.nber of admissions to hospitals for these? diseases. The heat treatment malaria treatment, and other methods used in general paresis, and the insulin shock and metrazol shock methods used in dementia praecox may bring about important deductions in the total number of cases of this character.
