It was all so remote, so unreal. The newspapers spread their daily revelations like scenes in a hectic drama, and the first days of the World War unfolded like a play before a fascinated American audience. We have had a lot of education since then. First, the w o r 1 d is changed, changed utterly from that pre-war* ., world!tha't believed in the honor of the pledged word in international-dealings as in personal affairs. Many people actually believed that a great nation which had solemnly pledged its word to respect the neutrality of a small neighbor would do so. even to its disadvantage. We know better now. The War which began 25 years ago, and all the dealings SIIKC, J-ave established the new inroraiiLx'na! morality, that a nation ' dues \yl:?j its leaders conceive to be a gcoQ idea at the time, and every man now shares the astonishment of old Bethmcnn-Holhveg that a nation should insist on the validity of "a scrap of paper." Even Britain, which chose so to regard the guarantee of Belgium, is now revealed as less meticulous about Nine-Power Pacts in the Pacific. The United States knows now that when Europe brews war-broth it may well serve it piping hot at any time. We r are serious about the European b situation today, we study it as we never did in 1914, for'we, know that no s.tu- pidity, no blunder, no irresponsible and headlong course is too mad to be unthinkable in Europe. ' That is why people incline to listen carefully when they learn of the New Federal Unionists, a group now forming to seek to advance the plan of a world-wide federation of democratic nations. It is a thin, small straw on the whirling waters of the world today, but many will grasp at it with the desperation of the drowning, for today we know what we did not know in 1914 —the waters are deep and treacherous. The idea would be to unite free nations in a/union bound together by guaranteed civil liberties, mobile and united defense, stable money, an immense free trade area, and facile commerce and communications. Such a coalition would be so powerful economically and defensively, that it is felt others would wish to enter the OUT OUR WAY union, which they would he welcome to do on mooting the conditions, Perhaps it is a somewhat filmy dream, but it is to .the credit of the world that people are still left in it who will not resign it to a dog-eat-ilog future that can result in nothing but a new Dark Ages, How far this movement will get, no one can say. But it is launched at a time when thoughts turn naturally hack to-August, 19J'J. and review in'.smliic&s the results of the era launched in those dread days. Pact With Panama There is every reason to 1)0 glad that Die long-pending treaty with Panama, clarifying the rights and duties of both the United States and that country in case of world wars or disturbances, has at last been ratified by the Senate. " The United States has done well to make concessions, to yield on disputed points, for the world needs today the example of a powerful country willing to arrange amicably with a weak neighbor their mutual interests. There are countries in the world which would probably not bother to negotiate with Panama, but simply move in a military force and do as they like. • The world may well listen to President Avosemena of Panama as lie says, "With the pulling'in efl'cet ; of the new treaty there will be initialed an era of frankest comprehension based on spirit and justice in the special relations between the two countries." We hope and believe President Arosemana is right, and that the example will not be entirely lost on the world. Nine Million Acres During 'the past five years, the federal government has bought nine million acres of poor land. How good the land was can be guessed from its price, averaging only n trine over §5 an acre. This vast acreage gives another hint at the way in which the face of the country is being remade. Most of the laud is being used .for; national • forests} grazing, recreation and yiltl life refugees, Indian reservations, or leasing to state conservation agencies. The hope is that it will be of more use to the national economy in this form than when it was' being farmed by desperate farmers unable to get a decent living on it. Only the future, and with careful study at that, can show whether the national balance- sheet on so vast a venture is in tho black/ SO THEY SAY SIDE GLANCES by G*R>ra'rth SATURDAY, JULY '29, 1939 "Which do you think would be most likely lo bring us some dales—new clothes of a telephone?"

He finished with a dramatic nourish on a high note and (he applause was enthusiastic. A dozen or so travelers wailed wilh Roselee, Christine, Dick and the three old-time cow hands whom they had hired as part of 1he ".ilmos- phcre"'for Goldcrest. As were the others, Franklin was attired Ihis morning in cowboy costume. He had borrowed a guitar from one of the cowboys to accompany himself singing and Christine Palmer had gazed happily at him while he sang. It was her idea that he help entertain the waiting crowd, and it had proved to be an excellent idea. A coupe slowed down .and stopped. lioselee greeted the two women who were in it . "Good morning. Were you interested in seeing Goldcrest?" "Yes. Can we go right on over?" "No ma'am. But if. you will please wait for a few minutes— we are having a lot of fun—-we will all go in together. You see, we hnvc all our guides here this morning to greet a special bus parly at 10 o'clock. They're due any time. We're having songs." Roselee smiled at them, and her elusive left dimple flashed, and the two women in the car smiled hack and said they'd wait. "More than a hundred college students and some faculty mem- hers from a New York university are coming," Roselee went on. "Buses of them, on a coast-to- coast tour," How lovely!

Franklin and the two nirls were busy with the college crowd, but when tho last bus came Dick and Roselee, riding in their light service truck, led the caravan over the rough two miles lo the ghost town. Franklin and Christine, rode with' the visitors, trying fo show as much hospitality as they could. For one thing they enjoyed being hospilable, especially since this was a group of collegians approximately their own age, but aside from that was the salient fact that Ibis mom- ing's callers represenlcd a money "lake" which \vould approach $200 all told. When they had all alighted again at the edge of Goldcrest, to walk slowly through the now routine routing worked out by Dick and Franklin and Roselee and Christine, the crowd was more like a picnic assembly or a crowd before a football game. Youth dominated the guests this morning. Boys and girls were making the inevitable wisecracks and asking upward of a million questions. More sedate adults could only follow and look on, but the good spirits there were contagious. They saw the old abandoned residences. The corrals and blacksmith shops. The feed slores—one with a bell which they rang and heard echo powerfully in the great rocky canyon there- the interesting old graveyard, the bank and barbershops and other business places were all visited.

Doubtless Franklin would call him, she told herself. But Franklin didn't call, and in spite of the bustle and the laughter and the constant happy hum of voices around her, something made Christine glance out again to check up oh eccentric Professor York. Maybe she ought to go bring him in, the old dear, she thought, kindly. Roselee and Dick were very busy with the younger folk in the big dining hall, she noted. She saw Professor York unobtrusively head down the - street just gazing here and there, then suddenly cross over. Moreover, he was going directly toward the Goldcrest bank! That itself needn't have benn alarming. And yet—something froze Christine Palmer to attention there. Some nanuiless inner fear. The fear was heightened when she saw Professor York look hurriedly around, then disappear inside the bank door. She glanced at Franklin Larraway, caught the awed look of recognition now on that young man's countenance. She started to walk through the crowd to join 'Franklin, but in that moment he left the hotel and himself ran hurriedly across" and (To Be Continued) THE FAMILY DOCTOR . M. ***. ««. •.

MORRIS FISIIBEIN Eilllor, Journal of (he American Me dical Association, and of Hygeia, the Health Magazine Among the most important of the discoveries of scienlific medicine in recent years are' those re- laled lo the isolation nnd uses ol the specific hormones of the sex glands, both male and female.

When this glandular material Is given lo rats nnd mice it lias been lound that small noses will cause stimulation of the activities of the female sex glands, whereas larger doses given over. a long period of time will produce a depression of this activity.
