When is a Chicken ' Nul a Chicken? |)COl)le object lo U\c use "I pigs, or animals of any liiml, for Uie iHirposc of scionlitic t.'xpwi- mciitiiUou. More people olijwl (o Die use of lunmui beings sis ifiiinc-a iiijrs. A what-is-il? has l)cen tievclo[)«il which ought to make everybody happy. Whether it fan be ciilletl a syiilhelic human or a synthetic chicken is soiue- fhing the congenital hsiii'-splillci'^ .should have it picnic debating. There's no guinea pig'in it, but, lignralively, life ris-it laboratory guinea pig is. HID career that has been curved out for it. You produce it by grafting human tissue on a chicken embryo, it responds lo baclerinl and virulent infections in <i manner highly simitar to a living human being, and makes il possible lo study at lirsl hand many serious human diseases thai could nol be produced in an animal. No, it doesn't walk and talk and light about politics. Right now it just fits around looking like something that has been dropped from a great height into a stone mixing bowl. Hut this is the question which obviously suggests itself whenever siny kind of what-is-il? pops tij) in a laboratory. Where do we go from here'.' Suppose that the men who evolved (he what-is-it? get to fooling around with that synthetic-human chicken sonic dull morning and come up with a new, improved model which ... . say ... exhibits a tendency to break out into wild laughter at intervals, or tries lo comb Us hair. Are these experimental boys going to be content with what they have done then? Do you think so? No. The next notion would he to develop the arms and the chicken I'eaih- could be made to sweep around the laboratory every morning. It wouldn't be long before (he im- provcd model would bo fooling around with grafting human tissue i(sclf, and there's enough grafters in the world already. No, boys, let il alone.

OUR BOARDING HOUSE Surprise, Surprise The coming thing is .something Hint i.s just beginning lo arrive 1 . Jl becomes relinilo that Die coming thing lias arrived when people slop . remarking about the fact thai it's here. That it'.i hero to stay, beyond any shadow of n doubt, becomes definite when people start remarking about instances of its absence. That makes il difficult to be certain just ivhaf coiirlii.siuiis lo draw from tin; a|>ix','irjiiic(! of I he story aboul woman oll'icx'lioldi't'.s in lierkshire county, ft [ass. II. seems that in eight of the ISO towns in the county there are no women who hold public oll'ice. Should, this occasion surprise, or should the surprise bo occasioned by I he I'lifl thai Ihe absence of woman officeholders in eight towns is considered an extraordinary enough .situation lo remark about? A few years back the notion of government by mother, wif'o, and sweel- heai'l was simply comic-art material. J'.ut now look, look! When it's news thai certain towns have no woman officeholders, it's going to bo news before long when a mere man dues hold office. It's enough (o make the males throw their knitting through the window. Hoy's Ambition A person who is blind is a pin-sun whom many men can never completely know. Men who have their sight, but lack imagination, regard him sis .something entirely different from themselves. I-el .such consider Alfred Alditigcr of 1'Yankforl, N. V. Aldingur, blind Cur the last 20 years, who rcalix.ed his life's ambition the other day. What do you imagine il was lie wanted to do? Was it some si range thing you would never have thought O f? Think of some of the ambition^ you entertained H.S a boy. Wlial Altlingcr always wanted U> do, and what he finally did, was rid,, n tire (ruck to a lire, and operate the siren. That ought to bring Iho blind a little dower lo yon now. What seems to set this particular, man apart from • his fellows is thai ho did finally ride a truck to a lire.
