Harris, now e:'ilor of the Times-Leader at West Point, Mi;s., reviews tht victories of wet Democrats in various contests in N:v>* York, Ohio, Illinois and elsewhere, ami" warns the licrty against beinj; led into a repetition of the 1928 catastrophe. Refen-ins to the talk already being Ir.ard of Roc.iwelt, Ritchie and others as presidential possibilities, Editor Hun-is says: "The South and the West, where mcst folks are dry and decent and have full regard for the proprieties, arc not fioing to swallow smother wringing wet." That i;' one point of view, but it seems to us that if the dry members of. the Democratic party arc going to insist that the presidential nominee be a dry, it would !;;• equally reasonable for the wet members to insist that he be p. wet. We have no means of knowing whether the "dry and decent" members of His party outnumber the wet and whatever it is that wets are members, but we do know that there" are enough of both kinds to wreck the party 'irretrievably if they refuse to march under the .same party banner. Now if tile question of prQhj!)i,tiicm is the- tfffrUfh&int issue before the -Amcri-r can ptople, outweighing the points of difference which separate Democrats from Republicans, the logical thing for American voters K to abandon the old r,aitios and align themselves as prohibitionists aii'J aiui-prohibitianists. Any attempt to make th<; Democratic and Rcr.ublican parties, as national organizations, either wet or dry, would be a move toward their destruction, became neither could survive the loss of either its w:l or its dry adherents. vVe do not think any such political realignment is necessary. Let the Ut-m- ociatic party take its stand on Democratic i-sues, behind a candidate for the presidency who best riprcsenls the party's position anj : without regard to his views on prohibition. Let Democratic voters in their primaries decide ~- OUT OUR WAY between wet mid dry candidates fur congnssioiinl Feats. Dry Democratic districts will soiul dry congressmen, wet districts will send wet congressmen, the party wilJ he preserved and we will be jtti.t as close to a rjcrmuiisiit solutipn of the prohibition (juestion as if we threw fill oilier considerations to. the winds and wrecked Hie party.

SIDE GLANCES By George Clark . By William proportionately. Neither human milk nor cow's milk contains a great deal of" iron. When these form thc sole diet of the Infant, the amount of ircu that .it gets is not sufficient to provide for the formation of thc re- ciulred amount of hemoglobin. As Is now well known, liver contains a good deal of Iron that Is usually absorbed by the system. The liver of the child at birth ctn- lalns a fair amount of Iron and this Is,,drawn on by the blood fcr the manufacture of hemoglobin. However, by the end of the first four or five months the reserve supply of Iron in the liver of the child Is exhausted and unless an additional amount of iron Is supplied by green vegetables, eggs, meat and similar substances, the hemoglobin production Is not sufficient to keep abreast of thc Increase In the volume of the blood.
