Eden's Reception More Important Than His Words What Anthony Eden has had to say on his visit to America has not been nearly as important as the way he has been received . It is a long time since a vistor overseas has been greeted with the interest and the enthusiasm which have met Mr. Eden. From the moment his ship docked in New York he has been the center of an intense and eager expectancy which has gone far beyond expectancy which has gone far beyond ordinary frindliness or more curiosity. And the significance of the fact ought not to be lost on anyone. For Mr. Eden has come to be regarded on this side o fthe Atlantic as the one great idealist of Europe. He is looked upon, that is, as one man who weighs the actions and policies of the day in scales other than those of mere expediency; as a man who somehow stands for the best that there is in democracy and fredom as they face the threat of a revived and greedy tryranny. It may well be thaat this :s not an accurate picture of the man. It is entirely possible that it does less than justice to his former colleagues in the British government. Yet these things are, for the moment, beside the point. Wht matrs is that a European who does seem to stand for something beyond and above the "practical necessities" of power politics has drawn from America such a response as has been given to few visitors in recent mm- ory. Why should this be? Why have so many people vested this dapper young statesman with the attributes of a plumed knight; and why, having done so, do they give him such an eager welcome and wait so anxiously to hear what he has ot say? It can only be because the mass of the people, here and eleswhere, are waiting desprately for someone to tell them how and where they can mak a stand for the civilization, the scale of values, the free and orderly way of life, which ar nowadays so greatly threatened. We grewup in a society which took certain things for granted; freedom, the sancity of the individidual's rights, the assumption that the race has enough of common fund of intelligence, decency and good-will to find its own way out of its troubles, the belief that might does not and cannot make right, Today's world actively threatens all of those values. Scores o fmillions of people are the enthusiastic followers of men who loudly deny thaat the ideals we have lived for have the slightest validty. In the face of those contemptuous denials we have not "known how to act. The best we have been able to do is follow a policy of drift and compromise. We can see its peril but we can thnik of nothing better, and our leaders do not seem to have anything better.to offer either. So when a man who does seem to have a positve answer appear—a man who seems to represent a ralh'ing-pojnt around which the ideals of a free society may be defended — he gets an amazing response. And th chanc that we may have an unreal notion of what Mr. Eden really stands for does not in th least alter the significance of the fact. •ft, M, RMT. V. 8.

Since many plays either aren't suited to movie production when Hollywood does get hold of them, it is the piny in hook form that most of us must rely on; and it is pleasant, therefore, to report that two current Brond- mt:y successes are now being presented between covers by Random House, tit ?2 the copy. These are "Missouri Legend," by E. B^Ginty, nnd "Oscar Wilde," by Swell nnd Leslie Stokes. "Missouri Legend' 'is a surprisingly readable play built around Jesse James. The famous old-timo robber (who somehow by comparison with our latter-day thugs of the Dillinger typo) is depicted as a rather pious homolcwor who carried on his illegal profession somewhat against his will, and whoso big ambition was to setth; down and become :i respectable member of the community. How nccuriitc a picture this is may be u question ;it makes « good, exciting story, in any rase. "Oscar Wililo" dramatizes tho clown- j tall of the famous )x>etdramatisls- | poseur. Perhaps this one needs to In. 1 1 seen, rather than read; the book is somewhat heavy going, unless you are already rather engrossed in the story of the ineffable Oscar. It should bo added, though, that it gives an intelligent and adult depiction of Wilde's sorry tragedy. ](' you've declare' 1 war against some of those odds-and-ends thai are cluttering up your home, it's time to do simething- about it..

MAJOR HOOPLE germ which is not oniinuvi'.y virluent may take on a new form in which it is quite virluent. In the mouths of many people germs are found which are actually virulent at the time they are found, and which seem to hiive been picked up by healthy people from cases of pneumonia, The germs do not live Ions outside the human body. When they a ro exposed to sunlight they die in ;< short time. Apparently' an hour and n half is the limit of time a germ can live in sunlight outside the body. There are records indicating that germs have lived as long as 10 days in a dark room in contact with moist sputum. . There are also records that germs suspended in the air in badly ventilated rooms in which persons with pneumonia have coughed have lived for several hours. Such virulent germs coming in contact with a person who j is susceptible or coining in contact with people in large numbers may cause pneumonia. The symptoms of pneumonia have been frequently described in this column. It is important to prevent the spread of this most fatal of all acute diseases. In preventing the spread of pneumonia it is necessary to bear in mind that it attacks those who have their resistance lowered by cold or chilling, overindulgence in alchol. or by similar factors that lesson resistance. The combination of attendance at a football game on a cold, wet day. with inadequate protection against the winter, and overindulgence from the contents of pocket flask, is an invntion to pneumonia, Nowadays there are new method OUT OUR WAY By J.
