Democracy Not Inefficient As Its Critics Maintain The commonest excuse for a dictalorshio is that it gets things done. Democracy is fine in theory, say the totalitarians, but it is inefficient. It substitutes talk for action, and it just can't function p-nperly in a complex and problem-laden world like the present. 'So it is a pretty good idea to look at the record now and then and see how things do get done in a democracy. It just happens that democracy's actual record of achievement is nothing to be ashamed of; it also happens that this habit of talking everything over ai great length is an essential part of the machinery by which things get done. A recent bulletin from the Maternity Center Association of New York points out.that our American democracy has been quietly but steadily solving one of its most difficult and pressing problems—the needless waste of life of mothers and children in childbirth. For two decades or more the maternity death rate in America remained at ft shockingly high level. The science of obstetrics- was making rapid strides, Nit America's material death rate was the highest in the civilized world. For one reason and another, mothers simply weren't getting the care they needed. People began calling attention to this. Newspaper and magazine articles were written, public herJth authorities made speeches—the democracy, in other words, began to talk. But there is one thing the critics of democracy forget .to. mention when they denounce this habit of talking: sooner or later, the talk has an effect. People listen to it and are storred to action. And so it was in this case. The medical, profession studied the problem. It found that a part of the blame was its own. Poor medical training was responsible for some of these deaths; poorly managed and poorly equipped hospitals were responsible for others; shortcomings on the part of individual doctors and nurses were responsible for still others. So the profession went to work to remedy matters. County medical societies offered special training for doctors doing obstetrics. Steps to improve the teaching of this science in the medical schools were taken. New maternity .clinics were opened. The care given mothers in hospitals was improved. ' What has been the result The bulletin from the Maternity Center Association gives the answer: _ "The maternity death rate is no longer stagnant. It is falling steadily and in many states is falling rapidly. In New Jersey and Rhode Island, where this co-operation and self-criticism has reached its peak, the material death rate is far below the national rate." This problem was extremely complex and involved; the last sort of problem, one would say, that a democracy could hope to handle successfully. Yet 1 *| s bei f g solved, and the job is being done in the typical democratic manner— .through- self-criticism and cooperation. For democracy is not, after all quite as inefficient and slipshod as its critics like to maintain M. ri«*. tt. 9, Pat otf. t,.,,i . By DB - MOR WS WSHBEIN Editor, Joumnl of the American Medical Association, And of Ifygein, the Health Magazine Death Rate From Diabetes Has Declined at Most Ages The death rates from diabetes seem to be increasing in most countries The reasons are many. Mast important is the fact that more people are living longer lhaan people used to live When cognizance is taken of this factor, the increase in the death rates from diabetes disappears entirely Thus the rates of death from diabetes •mve declined at most ages and are found to be increasing among men only after 65 years of age and among women only after 55 years of age.

The modern treat- nent of diabetes involves the use of liet and insulin ,-. not only the old rvsulin but also the new type of in- ulin which is called protamine zinc nsulm. The chief advantage of prot- mine zinc insulin is its usefulness n mild cases, and the fact that it bring he patient closer to normal living, ecause usually it needs to be taken nly once a day. Diet is still an integul part of the treatment of diabetes. Control of the diet need not be a highly complicated or complex matter. The diabetic diet is simple. As pointed out by J>. E.P. Joslin. the doctor merely needs to elarn the patient's usual diet, and then make the simple adjustment that arenecessary to meet the special needs of rjis condition. Patients with diabetes frequently do not die of diabetes itself, but rather of the serious complications. The most serious complication of diabetes is diabetic coma in which the patient becomes unconsious and dies unless immediate treatment is gjven. The patient must learn first of all to prevent the onset of coma by learning exactly what to do if he feels suddenly weak. The first step is the giving of insulin, and the second step is the giving of enough fluids and salt, but obviously any patient who has ggne into a coma should be taken immediately to a hospital. In the hospital everything for determining the extent and character of his condition is available. Once there were two classes of people rartciullarly who died of diabetes- namely, children and prospective mot-' hers.

Gorman travels a distance equal at once around the world every eight months yet never leaves Salt Lake City. Total cost of the "voyage" is $41.66. The "world traveler" sees the same scenery all the time because his trips are made around Utah's capital in street cars and busses. He rides sim- py because he enjoys it and because the cost is so low. Gorman's transportation costs $1.25 a week— the price of a weekly ticket. Often, he says, he makes several trips in a single day over the sa/nja route. Whenthe Salt Lake Citytrips get monotonous, he goes to Los Angles and rides the street cars and bussses there. Gorman, so familiar to street car operators by now th«it they call him "Frank," believes he's the world's "number one street car passenger." India end China cambined produce two-thordds of the world's rice. ed long enough to get married and have children. If they did they were unable to Carry the child to the time of birth. Today the treatment of children makes it possible for young woolen with diabetes to grow older. Moreover, ' women who develop diabetes later in life can now have children if they are under suitable care io thata their condition is constantly under control. The chief dangers from diabetes are of course, surgical complications, as represented by gangcene and infec- tions of the skin, The importance of care of the skin, and particularly of the feet, has beenstressed so often thata every person with diabetes ought to be aware of the dangers. The feet should be Washed .daily. Dry skin nnd nails must be softened and the're should be periods of rest for the feet. When new shoes are worn they should be broken in slowly. The feet of the diabetic person should be examined at Icsnt once each week so as to catch ,tl)e slightest difficulties at the earliest possible moment. The circulation of the blood in the feet must be given attention.. «• Every injury or nbrosion of the skin must be suitably treated at the earliest possible moment. Here it may be necessary to avoid the use of severe antiseptics, becuse they may do as much damage us good. •Monday, t)ecfemHor12,1938 The system of sergcatlng all prisoner in sererctc cells was first tried out In acotnpi'chensive way in Philndelplni about 1830.
