The IFoys of Peace Need Color The man would ilu the world »n invaluable service who could mnko Ihu adventures ami excitements of t-' 10 mind's struggle with mankind's problems as attractive as the jingoes can occasionally make organixed mutual slaughter, to young men who are .a certain distance removed from it. "Candid .shots" — photographic and literary — have 'doubtless performed a considerable service in Bringing repeatedly to the young man's attention the ghastly, degrading business warfare actually is. Rut how vividly du such ' reminders remain in tlie consciousness when the more brightly colored offerings of the professional "dnimfocalers" are brought into competition with them? Once that, infectious martial music starts hammering away, once the output of pictures — again, camera pictures and word pictures — aeijiiires u romantic air, will those grimmer pictures remain in the mind? They may. They arc hard to forgot. But mightn't the tactics of having made adventurous and admirable Ihc struggles of civilized men's intellects toward peaceful solutions . . . more adventurous and admirable than slaughter ... go a long way toward determining the youthful mind to keep right on resisting that,call lo primitive battle? . From Spain come descriptions of young Carlists, "'Uuquotes," ..followers of the "Falange," going into battle full of the "crusading spirit." You ' read that they "look to the sixteenth century for inspiration," mid something about it sounds romantic. The Loyalists with whom they struggle arc as certain they are lighting .for the preservation of civilization as are their enemies. Sometimes it. almost sounds worthwhile. "It is impressive to note that so many young Spaniards deeply believe in something," you read. Whatever became of that deep belief in peace. Why cannot a belief in rational con. duct be universally inspired, a belief KO deep that it can be transformed into a stronger passion than wars'' A positive belief in reason, an intense passion for it, would help the work of the "candid shots" along.

The laily'.s devotion to her task and her gnuuldaiiglilci 1 is thoroughly laudable, bul can't, .somebody who i.s nc- comj>lixh(!d in such things break tlie news to her, in a tactful and gentle way, about the .susceptibility of the child mind to sensory impressions, especially in the relaxed state just preceding sleep? Nancy will gel the (juill an soon as slie is "ulil eiioutch- to apprecialt: it," her grandmot.lier says.

Iherc is dourer of tlic cccm-reive of what are commonly called bed M'les.

Before Ihc ulcer occurs, however, there is a warning in the development, of an area ot whiteness at the point, where the islccr Is going to occur. This whiteness represents an interference with the circulation as a result of long continued, pressure. Obviously it is exceedingly impor lunt to pi-cvcnl, the occurrence o such ulcers.

Morro Castle, ;i taming while fortress, stood ilhuucttcd against :i cloudless ky of blue, and us the waves lashed up against (he rocks the unliglil WHS caught in tiny rain- >ows in the s|>ray. Here In Havana (ho Empress vas anchored nenrer (he dock han il had been in Bermuda, and ho ride iiiToss Hie harbor was lioi't. They found car No. 27, as- igned lo them, where a beaming 'oimg Ciibano named Adolpli of- eral himself as their cliaiifl'etir- iuide. Dick got in wilh the fiii'ls lid Mrs. Porlcr. Neither the doc- or nor Mr. Gregory planned (o oin Ihe parly, and Joyce won- Icrcd absently whclhei- Mr, Grcg- iry had been successful in finding mother agreeable companion. "J suppose the lirst stop is Slop>>• Joe's?" Didc fished merrily. "Of course." Mrs. Porter's voice uckcd enthusiasm. "That's the place every American dashes or, as soon as a boat touches Vhiviina. Unfortunately." "Why unfortunately- 1 " "It makes things so difficult for no, Hiehard. Tlie drinks are rli'ong, and Americans must al- vays try new concoctions which hey cannot stand ..." Adolpli drove c.vperlly around lie narrow slrccls, where side- i-alks were no more thnn two feel vide, where every corner was a )tind corner. But it did nol motor; he had a good horn and he ;njoyed il. So apparently did ivery other chauffeur in Havana. The city was a bedlam of aulo loins. AT Sloppy Joe's they stopped, • and Joyce slarcrt in obvious lisappoinlmcnt. This place was 'amcd from New York lo Miami, Hit except for ils size and its rc- "reshmcnls, il looked for all the world like an orange drink slam! on a Broadway corner. "Whiit'll we have, Joyce?" Dick isked brightly, as Ihcy found ;i ;ible. isobel answered for hor. "Let's ill have ti Planters' Punch. They're fine iicre." So Joyce, loo, cast in her lol, and four Planters' Punches came uloii{;. Now oilier groups from .he ship were arriving, und Sloppy Joe's faded into Ihc familiar MH'kground of Ihe ship's smoking room. It was easy lo laugh and forget one's inhibitions and become a part of Ibis fay, tempestuous eity. All loo soon Mrs. Porter urged them on. "It's after 10 o'clock, ind we should be at the Jai Alai Samos . . ." IsoW frowned. "Oh, mother, we don't want to sit there for hours! You run on along and we'll have one more drink and join you." "Yes, why don't you, Mrs, Porter?" Dick encouraged, loo. "Adolpli can return for us." She hesitated, but only for an instant. "All right, then," she conceded. "But only one more drink ..." Dick laughed. "Only one!" lie assured her. Hut it was almost midnight before Ihcy drew up in front of the stadium, and Ihe last game was almost finished. Joyce glimpsed a quick vision of a sport that was a combination of lentils ami handball, where the players used a lonji, curved racket, strapped lo their wrists, and reminding one of (lie tenacious claw of some huge bird of prey. And then the game was over. Oiilsidc, Adolpli waited to drive them out to the famous Casino, where fortunes were made and lost on the spin of a roulcfte wheel. TNSIDE (lie Gisimi, Joyce knew inslanlly that here was the spirit of Cuba. Here were the beautiful wonicn she had dreamed of, glamorous anil dark-eyed, queenly in their grace; here were Hie proud and gallant men, Ihc light of conquest smoldering deep within their eyes. Here they came for their amusement, to win or lose, it mattered not. Life was an adventure, gay and reckless and romantic! Soon Mrs. Porler loft to join old friends, and Isobel was carried oft' by a dark-eyed young man who spoke of meeting her on a previous trip. "That leaves us lo seek otir for- lune alone," Dick remarked happily. "Shall it be roulette, or does my lovely senorihi crave another Planters' Punch. That's the bar." "J'll lake roulette." She didn't want lo play roulette at all; she haled lo risk her precious $22. Bul neither did she wnnt lo spend these bright moments iu another bar. They played for many minutes, and Joyce watched the pile of chips dwindle slowly in front o£ ier. It frightened her to sec $10, i20, disappear in so futile a fashion, nnd slic I hough t of Aunt Martha's frugal scrimping. But when she tried to beg olT, Dick urged her on, adding chips from his own pocket lo her slack. Then, .quite astonishingly, she. won. Dick palled her shoulder in spirited approval as the- croupier swept the money toward licr. Wide-eyed, she slared at Ihe incredible pile. She'd won at least four times Ihc number she had stni'lod with! Now, buoyed by her success, ;hc played eagerly. She could lose lots ot chips now and slill be ahead. . , . * « >j E she placed her hela, all attention now to (lie numbers In front of her, Mrs. Porter came up quietly behind the crowd and beckoned Dick, "It's that Mr. O'llara again," she whispered tragically. "Won't, you help me, Richard, please?" 'Of course." lie leaned over Joyce's shoulder, murmuring u hasty excuse. Joyce did not look up until after (he play. Then Mrs. Porler was out of sight, but she did see Dick disappear inlo the bar. She fell a quick and unreasoning disappointment that he would leave her, in a place like this.-'toi' another drink. Perhaps it was half an hour later, perhaps more, and her winnings were increasing steadily, bul Dick had not returned. Now even her success at ronletle was a bit- ler thing. Dick Hamilton, whom she. had admired more than any other man she had ever known, was back there at the bar, drinking himself silly. And Isobel Porter, most likely, was with him! A moment later, her suspicions were justified. One of the waiters from the bar came to the table and asked for her. In his broken English lie tried to explain; "Sorry. The senor, he is—what you call sleeping. Too much— 3'ou know?" Yes, she knew. She ro* from the table and cashed in her chips. Dully she watched (he bills counted oul lo her. Two hundred odd dollars! Well, sometimes it cost more Ihan that to discover what a man was like. . . . She picked up her things nnd lefl the Casino, ^dolph would drive her back to the ship. If she coutcl k not find him, there were olhcr" chauffeurs'. Money did not matter now! (to Be Continued) uc back. Sometimes it is possible o change the pressure on this part y Ihc use of a thin, ring-sliupcd (iblicr cushion Tilled with air. It it semis likely that Uicrc is oing to be a brcakins of (tie skin r a .sore, the use of suitable auti- cptit .solutions is instituted in ptc- enling infection. Tile doctor will Iso prescribe treatment which may ivolvc the use of light or heal or Iher methods prescribed iiccortlina o the nature of the condition. Swift, Mo.

(UP)—A birth record in a family Bible is considered just half as authentic as a prison record in determining a person's true age for n pension. Two tsjic.s of evidence may lie submitted in Oregon to prove an applicant for a pension is 05 years of age or older. Under the first type of evidence only one form of pi oof is necessary, while under the second type of evidence two or more forms of evidence must be presented. [ A prison record comes under j Hie first typo of evidence and ,1 , birth record in a family Bible is classed under the second type.
