JVo End tn Sight It is now just a little more than two years since a minor and probably provoked clash at the Marco Polo bridge near. Peiping sent Japan and China down into the grim whirlpool of war. Two years—and no end in sight. The quick master-stroke that was to have beaten China to her knees at small cost has miscarried. And a million Japanese soldiers stagger on into the vust interior of China, victorious but frustrated, captors of a rich prize which slips through their fingers as they grasp it. The Chinese dead lie rolling in the ditches, aiuMhe steady stream of little white boxes containing the ashes of the • Japanese dead trickles back to Nippon endlessly. There are tales of vast slaughters, cities wiped out, hundreds and thousands mowed down, but the mind ran not grasp them. That is a curious thing about the human mind. It is only so big. -A man on a window-ledgu threatening to jump off, or oven a eat marooned, on a floating log, will stir super-human elTorls to save the victim. But the mass death of thousands is so overwhelming that the mind simply refuses'to cope with it at all'and remains almost indifferent. ' That is why-a single slight incident, frjvial perhaps-in itself, can reveal the , horror of 'a war when the great 'panorama fails to impress at. all.-Such an }-_ incident is" a little one just'told by a correspondent in Japan, P. '''W'V'- • ="-'• " >-n i .-'•; , A ^Japanese surgeon, rushed to the .Chinese front in the early days of Ju-- - Iy,;. 1937, has been through the whole campaign. .He lias never seen a boy . born shortly after,he left. So his mind, amid the grimness of a military surgery, dwells'on the little daughter he left, behind him. A'mid the grinding repetition of horror: on hoiror that is war, this surgeon writes home to 'his wife. And with his little daughter he loves so much. The little daughter he oves so much. The thing- that buoys him up is the thought of the daughter's laughing eyes and endearing hands that will greet him when he" returns home. So in each letter from "somewhere near Hankow" comes the special page ' written to his daughter. But she does not see them. She died last year. And the mother, knowing the strain under v/hich her husband is working at the front, has not had the courage to tell him"his daughter is dead "When I sea bis letters to our daughter, I think my heart must break," slio said. • Break, sloul- little Japanese worn-: anhearl! You are only one^of inany inilions, Chinese and Japanese. For thai, too, is war. The toll of war is lalten not only among the dead and wounded. It is also counted in broken hearts which never quite heal. A Hm-d year of Die war in China opens. No end is iii sight. And there will be no end until'there are enough broken hearts to cry in a commanding voice, "For what!" o/ THURSDAY,- JULY -13,- 192S 7 , SIDE GLANCES by Gajbralth ' •SERIAL STORY THIS CURIOUS >VORLD publlqatloa in tills colunaa of editorials from other newspapers does not nece«su-l]y meati endorsement but Is an acknowledgment of loin the subjects discussed-, Ho\v Is Arkansas, To Meet These Demands?

M. **•.«.• ft. M*. ••» Injury- to >Kiieecap Requires X-Ray And Finest Surgical Technique BY DR. MORRIS F1SHBEIN Editor, Journal of the. American Medical iVssocistlon, and of Hyseia, the Health Mataiine What people crdta»rlly" call, the kneecap is described by the doctor as the patella. >Vhen the -kneecap breaks.because, of-various'types of injury, it is hard to. straighten the leg. The kneecap can. break hot only from falling on It; nibre recently a number of cases have been reported in which the kneecap was struck, suddenly against the dash board of a motor car. The rnoi«rn doct:r- will .want first of all., to have-an X-ray picture to know exactly what the conditions are underneath the skin Of course, if there is not toa much swelling and pain, he can flnd out about conditicns by feeling with bis fingers. Hcwever. an: X-ray, taken from several different angles, will show exactly how the fragments cf the kneecap are-distributed, and this will let the surgeon know what he ought to do. If there are several lines of breaking in the kneecap, without, however, any separation of the parti the surgeon may be able by the use of splints or caste to hold the leg quiet and thus to permit the parts to grow together. If there Is a great deal of excess blocd or fluid in the knee joint, he may.decide to withdraw seme of this material, using a sterile needle and a syringe. • * n If the doctor puts on a cast, which mar extend from the toes up to the. groin and include as much of the thigh as possible, it may be necessary for the patient to remain in bed fcr four to eight weeks. After this lime the cast Is removed. Then the patient may begin to bend the knee. It will be "ounrt that it docs net bend easily. Of help In this connection is the of hot. wet compresses cr : dry heal two or three times daily and gradual manipulation cf the 'knee. However, if the fragments of the kneecap are widely separated because of the pull of the muscles and the- ligaments en the broken - it may be necessary for the surgeon to operate en the Imee !oint, 'opening- it with the patient mder an anesthetic, and then drawing the fragments together. Tills Is usually done by using stain- ess steel wire. At the same time After the operation it Is necessary again to put a plaster of Paris cast on the knee, for four or-'flve weeks, at the end of which time ttie cast/Is removed. Then the patient is encouraged la begin exer : clsfh&r the knee and to bear weight en'it with the knee in'a straight position. He is cautioned about putting his weight on the bent knee for some time. From eight to 12 weeks may be required, before a strong .knee is developed, and as much as • six months may pass before the knee Joint has returned to normal; This may all sound exceedingly simple, biit It represents .. the development cf modern, scientific medicine and surgery, applied to a simple injury which formerlj in manj instances produced complete and permanent incapacity.
