The'Popular Front' Era Faces Decline For the past three years, "the popular front 1 ' hns been an important feature of politick in many countries. Fortunately or unfortunatelyi according -to one's point of view, it now appears to be definitely on the decline. The,.British... Labor Parly's annual conference'rejected by an ovcr,whelm- iug vote of 2,360,000 to 2<18,000 a proposal for a united front with the Com- ' munisl, Cooperative and Liberal parties. •, The French Socialist Party in its national convention broke with the Communist Party, to which it had been linked since the campaign which; put the' Popular Front in power in France in 1986. r The vote of 5490 to 1761,' while it merely confirmed a situation which • has for some time existed in fact, nevertheless was surprising in its emphasis. In the United States, the same increasing restlessness at being linked with the Conirmifists is showing itself in,a rising tide. The Socialists who at Detroit several years ago climbed into bed with the Communists for "united ' front" purposes, arc long out, and are • now completely in opposition to the Communist line policies. Thousands of . American "fellow-travelers," shocked at the Russian purge and the savageness' with which they were attacked -in Communist organs the moment they • ',' deviated in any "united front" ..organi-. , zation from the Communist, line, have deserted those alliances. The sincerity " ,'Of Communist support of thejtfew Deal , * began to be questioned when it WHS ' >noted that Communist agitation for dis-affection in the army and navy - ' never ceased, that an uncritical ml mira- tion for Russia seemed to be the test of loyalty to the united front, and that Communist enthusiasm for united front organizations waned as soon as they showed signs of deviating from Communist policies. What sort of realignment for the i future these tendencies portend, it is hard to say, but it is clear t)>a t throughout the world and in America as well, new alignments are in the making. It is the active and ever-present fact of a resurgent Germany that is preventing the British Labor and Liberal parties from unseating the Tory regime which has not, outside the foreign situation, a firm hold on the coun- _, try. The same thing holds France united behind the coalition which over- shadowed the united front. In the United States, too, it is feeling about the foreign situation that has jumbled ' politics until normal alignments on the "progressive" and "conservative" axes are temporarily meaningless. The next year is certain tg see worldwide political realignments whose outlines are scarcely visible today.

C.: "S-s-.s-slu-up! Phew! A-a-a-h! I feel better already! 1 ' Thai's not at all an impossibility, according to Dr. Arnold D. Tattle, former army aviation physician, who finds Unit pure oxygen and a little exercise are the best cure for that dark- brown condition which makes all the world look black. Technically, anoxc- mia, the condition of a want of oxygen, is common in Hying, and pure oxygen is often administered at high altitudes. Dr. Tultio noted that the suffering at high altitudes was worse; among passengers fresh from a bout will) the bottle.

' The Sarabia, Tragedy SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 1930 SIDE OUNCES by CaJbraith The profoimd .sympathy of the'whole United Stales /goes out to Mexico in' ; the tragic •'death of Francisco Sarabia. .'

' Surabia was an important man in developing Mexican aviation industry, a pioneer in. establishing Ui 0 lines-which are linking up widely-separated parts of the republe to the south. But lie was lirst of all a, flyer, with that loucli of daring and recklessness which have niiulc flyers the idol of youth in every country. Sarabia knew well that the type of "flying-engine" plane he flew had killed Lowell > Bayles, Kiissell Boardman, Florence Klingensmith, Cecil Allen, niid Z. D. Granville, one of the builders. But with that touch of fatalism common to all the .great pilots, Sarabia shrugged, smiled, and pushed the plane through, first to a new record, then to his death. A gallant, and skillful pilot, he joins the company of "Conquerors of the Skies" for whom he liad named his plane. COfR ISM tV HE* SEBVICt.lNC. T. M. BEC. I). S Fat.

"Polo, gel the clips on Duke Martin and make it snappy," bawled Crossip irritably, though lie admitted being frankly scepti- cal about the mysterious message. "Wishful thinking on the part of some crank who'd like lo sec Duke humped off," he sourly told Nate Johnson, his assistant editor. "But just on general principles give our man Noon an a buzz at the E. G7lh street station house. Tell him to jump over and ask Martin it he's been shot. Also tell him to keep the tip under his hat." "I guess it won't be the first time Martin's been asked if he wore dead," remarked Johnson, pushing back his eye shade, adjusting his spectacles and rcagh- ing for the bulging brown manilla envelope Pete brought back from the reference room. "Oh, Mac Rogers!" lie sang out to a lean, lanky chap \viU\ earphones on his head. "Get off rewrite nnd, do a background story about Duke Martin from these clips. He's supposed to have been bumped ofT. But don't (urn it in until we confirm the tip. The Dove may be stalking publicity." Then to Bob Roberts \vho was sitting alongside Rogers, "Shoot up to the Dove and find out when Martin was last there." While Johnson talked, Crossic phoned Tom Ladd. "Yep, a mysterious gal calls us and says Duke Martin's been murdered in his apartment," Crossie told his managing editor. "Sounds like a phony lo me. But we don't want to be left asleep at thel switch. The lady had a convincing voice according to Mac." He pulTcd on his pipe. ""What's that? Trace the-call? Sure'we •fried, but it's a dial phone. No. There's no switchboard there. We fried that too. What! Fcnelon has Martin's private .number? Okay. I'll'call'you baclc-'in five minutes." Crossie, looking like a windmill In action, waved'arms, legs and body as he leaped from his desk to the copy table,, "We're goinj to treat Martin's murder as if it were true," he spoke rapidly to Johnson. "Build up a big story and release it with a special extra as soon as it's con- fumed." ' . '. " "If it is," pessimistically threw in Johnson, Cut Crossie paid no attention. He was talking to Fenelon. * * * JJEAD men/ can't hear. Duke Martin lay still and quiet while the phone rang incessantly. Sharply, its repeated jangling echoed shrilly through the empty apartment, lonely even in its gorgeousness. " ":_ Nor did the proprietor of the Dove stir when his front door was once more pushed open and Tuckie Thompson, an animated sequined figure, tripped gaily in. By contrast, the apartment was as still as the grave. "Oh, Mr. Martin," Tuckie called out cheerily in her falsetto voice. She was in the highest spirits. "Mr. Martin-n!" She stopped abruptly at the sound bl the telephone, then rushed into the living room and picked up the receiver, still unaware oJ the body lying'on the Boor, arms outstretched, de-: fenseless for the. first lime, in death. , "Hello, hello," she answered shrilly. "No, this is Mrs. Thompson. Did I call you a few minutes ago? Certainly not. . . . 1 don't understand you. Has there been a murder committed in this apartment? 0£ course not! This is too absurd. In another minute I'll bang up this receiver. Who are you anyway?" < "Drop that phone!" A man's voice fell heavily on Tuckie' wildered ears. She jumped hysterically. Receiver and phone crashed to the floor. Suddenly the whole room seemed lo be filled with big men, some in uniform The leader,, who had spoken so abruptly to Tuckie, picked up the telephone as an excited voice began shouting through the receiver. He listened for a moment. "Nuts on the Gazelle," he said briefly, slipping .the, receiver into place 'and putting the-'telephone back 'on the table. He jumped as a wild shriek rang through the room. Tuckie nad, • discovered Martin's - body. With terrified eyes she slated at the pool of. blood near the Head. "My God!" she cried. "Look at Duke Martin. ,He's dead!" • "You're' not bad, old girl," said the .detective, soothingly. "They all. act the way you do. You'd think the one guy they cared about in the world was the man they'd shot." He chucked her under the chin. "So you gava it io him at lasl, huh?" ' .. "Officer," she cried. "Do you knovy to whom you are talking?" Winking at the other men. "Lady yefs-de-Vere, 1 ' I suppose. Well, we'll take you to headquarters." .•**.*HEN lie became suddenly hard. A "Where's the eun, sister?" "I don't know what you're talking about," she whimpered. "Watch her, Reilly," he ordered. "Grogan and I'll search (be apartment. Murphy, you and Mike go over this room and look on the terrace. While they looked, Tuckie talked excitedly, wildly. Nothing she.said made sense. She wanted to know why they thought Mr. Martin had been shot. She wondered who had done it. and she asked why they didn't take his temperature to see if he might not still be alive. "I guess you mean pulse, lady," laconically answered Reilly. "That guy's beyond the pulse feeling stage. He's stiffening now." After that Tuckie grew more confused. "What arc you looking for?" she demanded fretfully, drawing her frilly lace cape about , her shoulders. • .V "The gun, lady, the gun." "Is that why you won't let me gol" she asked queroiisiy. "One of the reasons." Then to the detective, as he returned, "Find, it, Burns?" "No. A couple of you fellows go down and look in the street for it, under these windows. Murphy and Mike, you stay here to keep an eye on Martin until the coroner comes. Reilly and HI take Fluffy Ruffles to the station house."' Tuckie was so befuddled by this time that she made no protest. What mind she had was blank. In her senseless way she began to think the publicity of a murder trial might enhance her value. Fame, good or bad, sold tickets. "Maybe T did do it," 'she prattled as they led her away. (To Be Continued) THE FAMILY DOCTOR T. M. *«•. M.

MORRIS TTSHBEIN Kclilor. .Touriinl of the American fll c il i c a I Association, and of lljgcin, the Health Magazine 'Hie two diseases in which modern psychiatry has made the most definite advance nre paresis and dementia praecox. In Europe paresis was called the "officers' disease" because enlisted moi\ in the army who developed syphilis left the'array at the. expiration of their enlistment, but the cfficcrsV continued until they became much older and eventually developed paresis from untreated syphilis. The fact that many a soldier :amc back from the tropics and seemed lo escape the disease caused Prof. Wagner von Janregg to nssuitic thai some of the tropical diseases were antagonistic to syphilis. This led him to try the inociiliuion of patients with paresis with the organisms cf malaria. Apparently the fever produced by Uic malaria was significant in opposing the disease called general paresis. * • * Today artificial fever,, or heat treatment, seems to bo bringing about remarkable results in' the control of this disease. The two great cp:chs in this regard are the discovery by the Japanese investigator, Ncguchi, that the disease is caused by the spirochetcs) of syphilis which get into the brain, and the application of the heat method to the control cf the disease Most recent in the wcrk of psj-- chlatry is the attack on dementia praecox. or schizophrenic insanity now responsible for at least 60,000 patients in institutions and per- hnps another 30,000 in 'early stages of the disease. Some experts say there arc m:_re people, including nolcd statesmen, poets and financiers, H-tio have this disease in a mild stage outside the institutions than are inside. The. new methods of treatment include the use of fnsnlin to produce a form ot shcck, and the use of metrazol lo produce convulsions, Apparently the use cf cither of these drugs -sets up fundamenta" changes, in the constitution cf the person concerned—perhaps in brain—and the physical changes llius developed tend to vcact on the disease, Apparently considerable numbers of patients whs formerly would have spent all their lives In sani- | tcriums and hospitals are now fce- ng released and arc able to carry in the usual work of the day. * * « Both methods are .serious in their application and should never be used except in a' hospital under controlled conditions: In fact, the convulsions induced by the mebra- aol are in some instances so severe as -to-cause slight breaking of the Jones of the spine which are pulled on when the muscles and ligaments ccii'tract. All over Uie country today experts are combining these methods with mental treatment and with the use of other remedies lo bring about improvement In patient with Dementia praecoic or the insanity of adolescence. If this condition cnn be brought under control, the.saving in lives and money will be well nigh uncountable. f In a survey of his life and work ' just before he died, Dr. William; Alanson While, one ot the most' noted psychiatrists ever developed in America, condemned that tendency In medicine which 'tended to make the specialist a glorified technician and caused him to forget that, every patient must be considered as a whole human being, including his personality and psycho- logic attributes as well as the physical changes that have taken place in his body. This new emphasis, on the consideration of every sick human being as a whole is one of the greatest triumphs of modern psychiatry. quaintcd attempts to pay for 5'our.l meat on the diner.
