British os U. S. Systems Exceedingly profitless bill none the less interesting is the argument, never conclusively settled, niunt the relative merits of the Hritisli and American •systems of representative government. Tliu British system, undtr which the government is directly responsible to the parliament, ami subject to retirement at. the will of that hotly, i- lliu model for other systems, except in those countries which have pa-milled dictatorships to destroy constitutional forms. The American plan, with the cabinet responsible only lo the president and the president lin- swerahlc to the people only al four y:ar intervals, is used by most American republics. The parliamentary system, as it operates- in Great Britain, makes the government a good deal more sensitive to changes in the popular will Hum is our own government. A British government can stand only so long as it commands the support of parliament. A situation such as faces this country, with Hoover ami his cabinet in the saddle for two more years despile tho rejection of Hoover policies registered at the polly n week ago, would be impossible in England. Their control of parliament wiped out, the prime min- uter and; his cabinet would have no alternative but to resign and make room for a new government reflecting the will.of the electorate as expressed in" the vote for mcnib;rs of the national legislative body. The British system makes the government responsive lo changes in popular cpinion, which may or may not be desirable. But it lias ths undoubted advantage of making impossible n deadlock between the government, as represented by the •ixccutivo and his cabinet, and the people, as represented by their elected representatives. Mr. Hoover's parly, it appears, has a bare paper majority in the new congress, but so many of the members of bath parties, nominally Republicans, arc eomphtcly out of sympathy with the administration, that nobody imagines the Hoover government could survive for a day if il depended for its tenure upon the support of congress. If ours was a parliamentary govern- ivunt Hoover ami hi* cabinet appointees OUT OUR WAY would slep out forthwith nnd In their place we would have a Democratic or a coalition government, headed by either a Democrat or a progressive Kepuhlican—a guvcrununl with the supporl of a working majority of both houses of congress which would be in n position to do something. Another advantage of the pndia- menlary system, as> it operates in Great Britain, is that it makes for parly responsibility foi* tli2 successes or failures of governmenlal programs. Apologist- for Mr. Hoover attribute his failures of the past two years to his lack of absolute control of the senate. For the nexl (wo years they can explain llnil he was under an insurmountable handicap by virtue of his hick of control of cither house. Under the, parliamentary system Ihe government expresses the will of the majority parly, and voters know just where Ihe blame lies when things go wrong. For good or t-vil is no present ixxssibilily of making over our system of government along the liritish or any other plan. Bui there is an opiK>iiun- ily, under -an amendment oli'ered by Senator tleorge Norris, to do away with 011:1 of (he greatest evils of our present system. As things are n:>w constituted not only will our government for the next two years fail to reflect the will of the people as expressed in the recent election, 1ml the discredited administration will actually maintain its old power in congress foi; another year. Tho congress that nueU next month will be a congress of lame ducks—men rejected at the jwlls. Not until December, 1931, barring a highly improbable special session, will the new congress m:6t. Senator Norris proposes thai lame duck sessions be done away with, that the lirst session of congress following an election be a meeting of the new congress. H is a proiwsal that nurils adoption. Whenever the bears arc riclive, expect Wall Street to take it on the lamb.

MOKKIS FISHDEIN' Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hy- gcla, |llic Health Magaiine The mental progress of the child lid its muscular development pro- ccd normally at such a rate that he infant is able to hold its head ip at about tlie third month. About the same time be can be- iln to grasp objects but no', to coordinate accurately. Tims, he will ometimes put in his eye that which le aims at his mouth. By the age of six months, he can •each for objects and begin to guess [>roi>erly at distances. By the seventh month, Ihe normal infant can ill alone. It cannot sit steadily until the eighth or ninth month. The average infant tries to creep >y the end of the ninth month and to walk by the end of the first year. A normal infant can recognize its nothcr around tlie third or fourth nonth and begin to understand words at the end of the lOlh month. It will try to speak a. few words al the end of the first year. There is, however, a great deal oi diifcrence among infnms as to the time when they begin to .speak and as to the time when they begin to put words together in order to make phrases in short sentences. Usually the Infant can make a short sentence by the end of two years. If the nutrition of the clilld poor, it certainly win nol urogrc as rapidly physically or mentally a one that Is fed properly and tha absorbs tlie food that is given to i Thus a child three years old tha has not been properly fed and Urn suffers from rickets may be unatl to talk, to walk, or even to sli alone. The average iwrson -may bellevo that the child is defective mental-' ly, whereas the only difficulty maj he Ihe fact that it has not beer, properly fed or that it has failcc lo absorb the food that is giver to it. Just as soon as such childi-er are given proper amounts of proteins, carbohydrates nnd fats; as soon ^s they receive the minera' salts necessary for proper building of blood and of hones; as soon as their vitamin deficiencies are supplied through the giving of coc liver oil, orange juice, liver anc sufficient amounts of sucli vegetables as lettuce, spinach, cabbage, string beans and similar substances, they begin to show rapid development of (lie muscles, fat develops under the skin and co-or-i dinalely the mind shows improvrj inont, which is proof of tlie that there has been no actual menial deficiency, but only delay be| cause of improper munition.

Soussa hopes to be able to make the trip to the United States this year (o compete in the American amateur 18.2 balkline championships. season is . „ up of the leaved of most plants. Because of the prevailing dryness, forest and prairie fires occur at this time, the smoke adding to the intensity of the Indian summer haze. Smoke from such fires spreads slrwly eastward, gathers moisture to itself, and is followed by clouds and gentle rains. Similar "weather occurs in Germany, where the sea- ion is known as "Old Woman's Summer" and in England, where it is called "All Hallow Summer."" Tlie term "Indian Summer' 1 was probably derived from thj intense licats of the midsummer weather in India and the West Indies. No French Plan Downtown Airports for Big Cities 'PARIS. (UP)—French engineer; have drafted schemes for downtown airports for New York, Ch' cago, Paris, London and Bcr" 1 which would permit airships to MI- load passengers in the heart ot town. f In eacli of the cities, the/engineers contend it is possible.tfc briclct a river with a mile-long .aerodrome combining among other feature central food markets, union railway station, hotels and airp Ten planes could take oil at a time. 1 In New York, the river aujwrt vould have it foundalions en Blackwcll's Island, so that passengers would be but eight blocks from Piftli avenue and Central Park. The scheme for Paris would cost 100,000,000 • francs,- and would mean the covering of the Seine and the wine-market wharves from the National to the Bercy Bridge. Planes lauding there would connect with tl\-> expresses running from Paris lo Cairo, Constantinople, Rorncj Moscow and Berlin, Madrid i::H Vienna.
