The idea was that if you had a theory to test, and suspected that there was something wrong with it, you selected the dizziest example you could think .of and carried it to its logical conclusion. Then, when you had a thoroughly ' cockeyed situation on your hands, you proved that the theory itself was vphony. You did this by reducing it to absurdity—"reducto ad absurclum." For a long time now the theory that remote ties of ancestry and language should determine a people's government has been widely held. It led to •-much map-making at the Cersailles conference, nnd more recently it gave Herr Hitler a fine excuse for pushing his drive to the east. Now the Italians have picked it up. looking toward expansion in the direction of Tunisia and Corsica: and it begins to look as if the old high school process of reductio ad absurdum had set in. ' it may be quite true that the bulk of the Tunisians and Corsicans are eithei of Italian ancestry or speak with a pronounced Italian accent. But if that means that those territories should immediately go under the Italian flag, "then Uncle Sam himself is sitting on a lot of^subject peoples who are under the wrong flag. Ey that theory the Dutch ought to reclaim n good part of Pennsylvania, and Spain should take over large portions of Arizona and New'Mexico. „ Sweden would get a large area in Minnesota and the Dakotas, and by right of discovery and settlement should be entitled tc part of New Jersey. The French would' , have a respectable claim to New Orleans, and Italy coull lay claim to a good bit of land along Long Island Sound. Poland could reclaim many city blocks : in. Chicago and Germany could assert title to much of St. Louis and Cin. cinnati. New York City would be split about 30 ways, considerable territory in the west would go back to the Indians, and Japan would get Hawaii. All of this is pretty absurd, of course. Yet it follows quite logically, once you accept the premise that remote ties of blood and language are all-important. And if logical adherence to that theory leads to absurdity in this country, perhaps the same thing is true elsewhere. The plain fact is that this blood-end-language business has been over- Worked to an amazing dtgree. There are far more important considerations to be applied in determining national boundaries, and it is high time the fact was realized. There have been so many migrations and so much shifting and intermingl- ir.g.of peoples that the map can nevei be unscrambled and peace can never be attained on a blood-and-language basis. As long as that is the accepted shibboleth there will be wars and rumors of wars. The world's hope for peace ' depends on recognition of the fact that some saner and more practical means of determining who shall rule whom must be found. Third ot n scrls of five articles i on carbon (tnoxlde nnd luw to n- void It Since mbst of the deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning occur in garages or in factories .or in mines wher.e numbers of men may be exposed to the gas at one time, the health sections of the various labor departments and of various industries have worked out a series of recommendations to be followed whenever one or more persons suddenly become unconsious as a result of exposure to carbon monoxide gas. It might well be in every factory where this possibly exists, in the gas in steel mills, celluloid manufacturers, acetylene welding, brass foundries, garages and service stations, and indeed in every home where illuminating gas is used, that the following eight warnings be familiar: 1. If there is a yellow flame heating your machine report this fact at once." There should be a blue flame at all times. A yellow flame gives off carbon-monoxide. 2. Never use n gas-h r .atod npoliun.io which is eonncted by flexible rubber or metal U'bing. The only flexible tubing v/hish does not lenk is an approved ••loth-covered tubing. 3. Do you suppose thr.t you can fine aleak in your tubing by running .1 lighted match along it? It will ligh only when there is a very large leak. There may be many small leaks whicl make it dangerous to Work at your achine, even t hough those places cln od not permit enough gas to go through t« actually light when you apply a match. 4. When you are working over an open flame, do not put any utensil on the fire which covers the 'flame too completely. This keeps the air out, and increases the amount of carbon monoxide gas produced. ' 5. Do not try to patch a leak or make any adjustments yourself. Close off thhe gas till the repair man comes. G. If the gas presure changes report the fact at once. If there is too large pressure, the gas will not burn properly and will give off considerable carbon monoxide gas. there is too little pressure some of the port holes in your appliance may not Ight. This will happen particularly f they are dirty, and filled with soot. Those port holes which do not light eak a certain amount of Ras. and inure your health. 7. If i'ou find that you get n head- iclie at your work, carbon monovldc nny be present in the air. Look for leaks nnd poor connections. 8. If you are not feeling well see \ doctor' right away. If you get n icadace at work due to gas, try some other kind of work. A Book a Day By Brut* Tlic Screwy Slrtc or [tiur.Tur If you tun imagine n book which is like n blend of "You can't Tnkp It With You" nrul "Merrily We Live." with fnint overtones of ''1 tie Thin ivinn, • you can got some itlcn of Robert George Denn'S new murder mystery, "A Murder .of Convenience" (Crime Club: $2). Mr. Demi discusses the slaying of an elderly capitalist, mid shows us two tough private detectives circulatinK among the deceased's family in the hope of solving the crime; but only incidental to his portrayn! of one of llio screwiest families in current fiction. Between father, who spends his time in the basement fighting tbeb World War on a large-scale relief cin emigre chauf-ptheRu.ssiannaiwIim map. nnd the Russian emigre chauffeur who gaily insults everyone in the household, the family is both im- probable and comic; nnd while the boo kamounts to little nsn mystery yarn It does make highly amusing reading in other respects. If straight mystery fare is what you seek, try "The D.A. Holds a Candle." by Erie Stanley Gardner (Morrow S2>. The imlL'taliguble Mr. Gardner /Irops Perry Mason temporarily to stiow a small town district attorney denning up a mess which falls in his lap when a hitch-hiker is found dead in n tourist camp. As in all of this author's book's, the action is fast and the plot i.s skillfully construct- . cd. All in all. here's u first-rate thriller for a winter evening. Al«o recommended is "Then There Were Thr'w." by Geoffrey Homes (Morrow. S2). In this due a private ilick and a newspaper editor unravel one of the neatest try-and-fiml-the- bocly mysteries yet encountered. this reviewer has This private dick, Ij.V the way . is n salty and refreshing I'lij'.nick'i-; Mr. Homes ivuiUI do worse than put him in (mother book.
