A Break For All of Us John Sh-Dnnald, missing witness in the Mooney case, has liucn found ;it. last; and in that fact lifts n bit ol 1 great jjood luck, not only for Tom Mooney and Warren K. Hillings, but I'm 1 the nation as a. whole. Ills sudden ai>i(cai';iiK'D makes it probable that Mooney and liilliiujs will at last be rulc-ascd from iirisou. That will not only be a good thing for them. It will be wholesome for all of us, whether we like it or not. San Francisco held \\ pVL'piiralness parade in 191G. A bomb, left in a suitcase at the corner of Stuart mid Market streets, exploded, killing a mim- ber of people. Mooney and Billings, labor agitators, were arrested and charged with HID crime. McDonald was the star witness. He swore he had seen Billings leave the suitcase on the corner, join Jlooncy and talk with him and then walk away. Chiefly on the strength of his testimony, the two men were convicted and imprisoned. Five years later McDonald appeared in New York and swore that lie had iicd. He had never seen Mooney and Billings at all, he said; he would not have been able to identify them if the police had not pointed them out to him in jail, lie prepared lo'go back and tell his story; but when lie learned that he would be prosecuted for perjury lie vanished. ' Now he has turned up again, and it is hard to see how Mooney and .Billing!} can be kept in prison any longer. F. C. . Oxmaii, (lie only other important witness against them, has been proved to be a liar. The judge who tried Mooney and nine of-tliu ten surviving jurors who convicted him have asked that the • men be freed, saying that they arc now convinced of their innocence. JMc- • Donald's filial appearance ought to sct- tie things. This, we repeat, is good luck for the '. whole country. Public Campaigning • Paul Marsh has set a good example for all candidates for county office in adopting a policy uf making his campaign promises in public meetings.

A clean political light, waged in llu 1 open, with eveiy candidate oil record on what In: divl's to be the. issue.-; uf the race, is what is lie.tied It) enable thu voting public to make an intelligent and .sound choice. 17, 1030 SIDE GLANCES By George Clark ' The Motorist's Fault The fact that must grade crossing accidents are strictly the fatill of the motorist and not of the railway is strikingly brought out in a recent incident near St. Albans, VI. At n crossing near thai cily a mo- tori>t drove hi.s car into a Central Vermont railway locomotive and damaged the locomotive to the tune of *1!>.1>0. The ni.ilwiiy surd for ihe sum, and the motorist's insurance rompanv has paid it in full. The railway contended that the motorist was entirely at fault, since he drove out on the crossing despite (he fact that crossing bell and scmaphone were giving him the proper warning. As a gfneral tiling, il can be said Unit most grade crossing accidents are due to the motorist's negligence. This railway's action in collection for damages to the locomotive is a good reminder.

The announcement by a scientific research commission which lias .'.tudieci the field for nearly a year indicates that it may prove one of the most imimrUtnl iron sources in tile world. The ore contains an average of 50 per cent iron and lies iK^ar tile surface in some places even on the surface itself.

MORRIS 1TSHHKIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association and of Ily- Kflu the Health Magazine For some years it has been realized that overweight after middle life is associated with increasing death rates frcm the degenerative diseases. The degenerative diseases include such causes as heart disease high blood pressure with resultant brain hemorrhage, diseases of the kidneys, and hardening of the arteries. Persons who are underweight have a higher death rate usually from diseasrs affecting the lungs, u'.il thli uniavorahlc fact is balanced by their lower rate from degenerative diseases. In connection with this point of view, statisticians for two of the largest lite insurance companies have recently made an analysis of the relationship of underweight and overweight to certain causes cf death. I'igurcs Are Expressive If the death rate of people of normal weight is taken as ICO, it is found that people v:ho are overweight have a death rate from heart disease 151 iicr cent of the death rate from diseases of the kidneys of people who arc overweight is m'pei- cent of the average; from diseases of the arteries. 1G5 per cent; from apoplexy or hemorrhage cf the brain, 1G1 per cent, and frcm cancer, 111 per cent. The striking difference in the death rates is Ircm diabetes. People .who are overweight and have death rates 257 per cent of the average. It has long been rcccgnized that overweight after middle life has a definite hazard in relationship to diabetes, and experts in the treatment of diabetes warn again and again against this hazard. Among people who are overweight there arc also excesses in the figures for angina pectoris, appendicitis, hardening of the liver and typhoid fever. As the figures studied for people who arc underweight after middle age. it is found that the death rate for heart disease is 81 per cent of the average; from kidney disease. 77 percent; from diseases of the arteries, 74 per cent; from bruin hemorrhage, 70 per cent, and from diabetes. 64 per cent. The figures fcr cancer among Ihose who are underweight are about the same as thoie who are overweight. It has long been recognized that malnutrition is likely to bo associated with tuberculosis. This fact was definitely sustained when the lubercitlcsis rates for girls between the ages of 15 and 25 were fonnrt to be higher than for normal girls who are underweight. Amcng tho^e who are 15 per cent or more underweight, It is 231 per cent of the normal; on the other hand, nmcng those who arc overweight tuberculosis lias a mortality rate of less than half the normal. Why the Rale Is Higher Physiologists who have- studied (he subject believe thai the hiijh rues among overweight people from degenerative diseases ar6 due largely to the extra burden of work ml on ihe heart, the kidneys, and blood vessels by extra bulk cf the body. Much overweight is due to thch hereditary character of the human being. A large percentage, however, is due to bad dietary habits and bad hygiene, and the physiologists are convinced that such overweight can be modified: by proi>er diet and exercise, with great benefit to health and longevity. Sir.ce underweight is aparcntly less dangerous than overweight unless il is excessive, there is a little advantage in being slightly underweight. The chief problem would seem (o be ascertaining the besi weight for health nf the person concerned, and to maintain that weight by sensible hygiene. Little Brown Church In Vale Loses Business NASHUA, la., (UP) Six couples a day, on (he average, plighted their troth ai the Little Blown Church in the Vale here during June, the Rev. William Kent, the church's pastor, announced. Unemployment, the pastor of tile church which furnished inspiration for the well-known song said, was resixjnsiblc for the decrease in marriages from the 190 recorded in 1929. Last year, the church's records tliow GJ3 couples were married in the little frame building. June 18 and June 25 were the most popular days this year, the Rev. Kent said. Seventeen couples appeared for the ceremony each of thos days while 1-1 couples appeared on both the Mth and 21st.
