Lei Us Protect U. S. From /- /sm.s Whatever else the last few years may have been, they certainly have coiulilulctl a great field (lay 1'or HIE royal order of crackpots, It is doubtful if this country ever before saw such u. huge number of liaiiaceas and isms being advocated nt one linle. You can look over the field and take your choice. If you can't fmd at least one booth Hint olfers the , wares you like, you are at liberty to go out and set up • one of your own. Now tho f pccliiclo of all these panacea salesmen crawling out from under plank.-; and urging us to snvc our con nl ly by doing this, tluil, or the other unusual ami peculiar thing, ' H disturbing to a great number of sensible citizens. Bt^L what the?e sensible iliU/.ens usually overlook is the fact tlwl they themselves have cleared the roiul for the procession of crackpots, by failing to make -an ell'ccfive protest against the ills which the lust few years have brought, upon uf. This point was admirably brolight out recently by Msgr. Michael J. Heady of Washington, assistant general suc- relary of the National Catholic Welfare Conference, in a speech in Cleve- land. -;..' .'.'-•'.-'.' 'Msgr. Ready's argument: was simple and direct. The country, hc'.snid, simply cannot and will not put. up : forever witli unemployment, huiiifey, injustice, p aiut greed. If the ordinary, God-fearing citizen fails to make an ed'ccliye pro-. test against these things— through his church, his civic group.*', his use of the ballot, or whatnot — someone else is goiiig lo. If that someone else lunis out to be a bushy-haired' individual with an idea that all our ills will be solved if we confiscate all bank accounts \arger than $75, the, ordinary 'citizen has only himself to blame. "In a word," says Msgr. Ready, "we must hunger and thirst after justice to save the soul of society. For, I say boldly, the preservation of Clm.-tian society depends upon our courage in making it really 'Christian. • ' ' ' "Do we wish to lake the leadership in this task of reconstruction and perfect a society on the specifications of Christian social teaching, or shall we leave Uic l«sk to crack-pot reformers?" Stupid'and wolfish as we oflen seem, to be, the number of intelligent and level-headed citizens, nevertheless, is greater than the number of those who can be taken in by the honeyed words of the panacea salo.-imm. If some ism or other, finally does .overwhelm Ihe country, it will be simply because the great mass of the l«o))le' waited too long before letting their hearts and their consciences drive their brains to the task of putting the national house in order. —Bruce Cation. College Mwi Wwiicd! There is exceedingly good news awaiting the college graduates of 19HC. More jobs are open for them than at any other time since 11)31. Robert F. Moore, secretary of appointments at Columbia University, points oul, for instance, that ninny business and induslrinl orgaimalions were faced with "an alarming gap" in their, personnel forces because of depression economies. As a rcsull., not only are there four times as many requests for college graduates this year us in 1035, but the starling wage level has risen. Whereas the lop salary n young • graduate could expect last year was $100 a month; compensation this year is ?125 for the best positions and ?tOO for "average" jobs. Those Dial formerly paid practically nothing j )ow offer up to $85 a inonlh. This represents the beginning of a foothold for-youth. The absence of tluit foothold lias been one of the great tragedies of Ihe depression.

One of the simplest methods is to wrap some adhesive ta]>e lightly around file thumb. Tills makes the sucking somewhat disagreeable and, ft'ith a good many babies, will prove lo bs sufficient to break the habit. Another method is to place a still cardboard over the child's elbow, so that t'ne ami cannot bo bent. And still other ideas are the application of bitter medicine on the thumb, the use'of wire rings, aluminum mitts, and similar vices. The elbow cuffs' seem to be the most effective.
