A Happy Appointment The choice of the President of Archibald JIacLcish to be the 'Librarian, of Congress is a particularly {food one. , MacLeish is not only a poet and a darned good one, but'as well as being one of the country's outstanding men of letters, he has been an artillery captain, a lawyer, and a magazine editor. ' The Red Scare, which has become 'standard procedure in Congress.-in re- 1 garcl to almost all appointments, has been dredged up, it being charged that MacLeish has been a "fellow-traveler" with Communists in various causes. Congressmen would do well to catch up to the fact that MacLcish's most recent literary product was a'slashing indictment in the Survey-Graphic of Hie whole "united anli-Fnscist- 'front" tactic, and as powerful an exposition • as we've ever read of the growing feeling that the best defense against both Fascism and Communism is to get her hind democracy and push like—well, like all-gel-oul. This earned MacLeish a most bitter condemnation.'in-a' rc- • cent number of the New Masses, Com,- "inunist organ. MacLeish has a forward-looking, mentally-keen and searching mind which should do much to m.ike the 10,000,000'items in the Library of Congress of service to Congress and to the people. That is what they arc for. He is, as the President said, "a scho.- .- '^lar and a gentleman," as well as <iu r* gble-executive, It would lie shameful- to see his confirmation'delayed because of. uninformed opposition. • How People Talk When a submnrinc sinks, with many living souls trapped beneath 2/10 Teel of water, ,and telephone cpniniuiiicti- tion is finally established between the doomed ship and rescuers on the surface, what sort of words pass along that wire? If you are ii romantic soul or addicted to fiction, you envision some stirring business of "Courage, comrades! We shall soon rescue you from that watery grave! Bear up, be brave, help is coming!" That isn't what really happens, however. The conversation between the commander of the Sculpin, rescue ship, and the sunken Squaliis, has now been incorporated into the report of Admiral Cole on the tragic event. The first words to pass over the line, from Lieutenant Wil'-'in of the Sciil|)iii to Lieutenant Nicholas'of the Sqiudus, were brief, to the point, They were exactly the words one nnght' use in addressing an auto tourist stranded by the wayside. Said Lieutenant Wllkin to Lieutenant Nicholas: "What is your trouble2" o/ OtU&tA Publication in Uils column of. editorials from other newspapers does not necessarily mean endorsement but Ls an acknowlcdgix«nt of Interest In the subjects dlscuAscd. •SO THEY SAY BLYTIJEVILLE,'- (ABKJ-COUHIER NEWS TUESDAY, JUNE '13,- 19J19 What Do You Think?

An incredulous expression swept over Feiielon's face as lie repeated Ladd's words in the receiver. "Arrest dfary Franklin for the murder of Duke Martin! She didn't do it any more than 1 did. I certainly won't arrest her." Obviously puzzled by Ladd's demand, Ihe police commissioner's tones took on the soothing quality he might use in addressing a child. "After all, she is your own em- ploye." Then, as Ladd continued to talk, Fenelon showed, by his manner that he was partially convinced, "You say that she phoned from Martin's apartment to lip off the Gazelle and .then hung up before she could us questioned? H'mm. 1 admit it's curious. Maybe she does'know more than we think. Well, if you insist, I'll send Jim Chase up to get her." For several minutes after Ladd phoned, the commissioner leaned back in his chair, the fingers of ' one hand carefully resting against (he 'outstretched fingers of the other. His gray eyes were thoughtful. . '.'.'.'.'..' '.". .'.' , Half an hour later Mary was facing Chase in her living room. "I don't understand," she said "You've come lo arrest me. Why?' "Commissioner's orders, Mis: Franklin." Chase's blue eyes wer< gentle and guileless, and his round face, with its undistinguished features, revealed nothing. "This is absurd," cried Mary "I'll call the office." Then shi stopped suddenly after she'd recovered from the first shack. "Bu at least you can tell me what I'm being arrested for." "The murder of Duke Martin.' She was colorless but cool now 1 "Well, anyway it's a> murder," she remarked ironically "May I get my hat and coat, p do you trust me alone? I caul escape through (lie garden." "I'll trust you, Miss Franklin, Chase smiled. "This isn't the firs time we've met." "No, that's so, and on the sam story," called hack Mary, as sh isappeat ed , in to her bedroom; Funny, that night at Janice Vench's you came to rescue me, aw you've come to'arrest rii6." Glancing back to see it Chase vas watching, Mary reached eyerishlyjn-her (op drawer and [ted out Clem's shining, sequined venlng bag. It slill bulged in the ontour of a revolver. Hastily tcpping over to her closet, she cached In for a galosh, rapidly luffed the evening bag in the toe nd tossed (he overshoe back in he corner of the closet. A moment later she joined the detective. * * » ROT her mood was not cheerful when she climbed into Ihe car vith Chase. She was very angry now. She had had time to think .he whole thing over. It was a frame-up. They did it to get her o talk. Well, she'd never talk. After one- or two attempts at making conversation, Chase lapsed nlo silence too. He wondered what the commissioner was up to now. He hoped the commissioner would not be too hard on Mary She was a good sort. For an instant he eyed her, then with a slight frown, looked away. She was too young and pretty to be mixed up iti this thing. Mary sat tensely in the car. She admitted she was nervous. The glare of the sun on Lafayette street tired her eyes. The noise of traffic was deafening. Her attention wandered. She glanced a (lie clock on the dashboard. One o'clock. At this hour yesterday Duke Martin was alive and she was lunching with him at Peter's The sun was shining brightly svhen Mary followed Chase into police headquarters. People passing on Lafayette street paid nc attention to Her. Back in his office at the Gazelle Ladd was giving rapid-fire orders "Send in Crosswell," he bel lowed to his secretary. "I've had Mary Franklin pickec up for the murder of Duke Mar tin," he announced as the nigh city editor hurried in. "Now want the story played across eigh columns, and splash it. Start you lead thus ..." Ladd began writ ing rapidly, then handed the be wildered night city editor • th story.-, 1 • ' . '• . . ' . "I want only two cbp ! imprinted Two, 1 ho more. Then we'lfgo i baci to the old story. I want two ..c'ffic boys sent each with a copy t these addresses and let 'em holler n extra. • Let 'cm holler, 'Mary 'ranklin, society editor, arrested or racketeer's murder.'" PHK managing editor of the 1 Gazette waited impatiently in :ie basement, while the presses ot he paper rolled oil (he two copies. "Hero you are, fellows," he ailed out excitedly, as lie handed i copy to each one of ihe two ilficc boys. Before they had left the- room he pressmen were rcplaling the giant presses and the real edilion was being rolled. At half-past one, a small boy appeared in the 900 block on Fifth avenue. "Extra, Extra," ha called. "Society editor held in racketeer's killing." His voice prew louder as he passed 019. 'Extra, extra," he yelled. "Mary Franklin, society editor of the "azetie, held' for the murder ot Duke Marlin." The door of 019 opened and J llem Shirley ran wildly down (lie steps. "I want a copy of that paper," she cried. On Murray Hill, in front of the John Burden house, the same scene was being enacted. "Extra, extra," cried a small boy in front of 119 East 37th street. "Mary Franklin, society editor of the Gazette, held for the murder of Duke Martin." The door of 119 was flung violently open and Jack Burden raced down the steps, two at a time. "Here's a half dollar for your paper," he cried. He was still standing on the front steps reading it when the boy hurried off. That same second, Mary was facing the- commissioner. "There are certain aspects of Duke Martin's death which v. r c feel you can explain, Miss i'rank- Jin," Fenelor, said. He pulled up a chair for hef^ and gave Chase a nod of dismissal. "Now tell me exactly what you know. I understand you were the last person in Duke- Martin's apartment." "There's no proof of that." Fenelon offered Mary a cigaret. "Ah, but there is. Mr. Rogers, o£ your paper, tells me he recognized your voice when you phoned to tip off the Gazette." She blew a cloud ot smoke through her nostrils. "1 have nothing to say." She was on her own ground in this situation, but in the reverse role. She knew all the answers. While she was parrying another question of Jenelon's, the door opened and Ladd rushed in. Mary jumped_..up. "You've brought, all this oh me.; I. hate you," she cried.

There arc many different theories as to just how Uils poisoning is brought about. No one cause' accounts for all the varieties and symptoms of the condition. However, It becomes clear that the associated changes in (he blood pressure, the increased amount of fluid in the brain, and the accumulation in Uie'blood of various toxic substances all have some part. Because of the variations in the manner in which the condition occurs, doctors classify three kinds .lie bowel by giving suitable remedies. It may be possible for him o relieve sonic of" the most serious symptoms by releasing some of the fluid from the spinal canal. Once the immediate serious symptoms are brought under control, it is possible to encourage the skin to act by the help ot heat, to keep the bowels open and to eliminate fluid and waste material through the bowel.
