Man Still Mu&l Bow lo •>. ' Power of Nature > ' : The' drouth in the northwest, coming as it docs in a ycai when llio rival; parlies nrc prcnaring once'more to "do soinelhing for the farmer," is a timely little reminder that the old piovorb is still true. Man proposes, but God disposes. r\Ve can make plans, ai'ranijc Tniim- ces, and erect protective walls until we are blue iu the face, but in the end Nature has U\c last word, Whether , the fanners of a given territory are to have a good or a bad year depends, in the last analysis, on mysterious forces .which we cannot conliol and which we .only begin to understand. ' A great deal has been written about 'the extreme aiidity of the last few yehrs in the northwest. We have very pioperly been reminded that our use of our soil has been unwise and im- pi evident, that \vc havc removed our forest cover loo fast, and that we have give)] erosion a helping band by faulty methods of cultivation. But the wind, as a writer in ancient Palestine ronun kcd, blowcth where it listeth; and if it blows dry and hot, week after week and month after month, with never a rain cloud to ride on its crest, the people underneath" it arc going to sull'er, whether they have fanned their laud wisely or foolishly. " And, perhaps it is not altogether a bail thing.for us to rediscover this old ^tiuth. "* I(*may take'"'a liltloaof; the ;"*t\\%iUetli century 'cockines's,.gut' of us % -' JVe have a habit of talking these'' "days ns« if'our destinies were entirely in our own hands. We see the millennium just over the skyline, and although we may differ violently about the way to get there, we are pretty well convinced that a way docs exist "and that we can find it if we just html hard enough. We may be right. But underneath all his modem science and invention, - man is, fundamentally what lie was in the days of Abraham; a lonely and rather helpless creature bent down beneath a high sky through whose blue emptiness his vision cannot pierce. He takes what the world lets him take and no more; and now and then Nature smites him with a tornado, or shrugs her shoulders in an earthquake, or bakes and parches him with a long •drouth, to remind him of that little fact. When such things happen, our inod- .ern civilization CHII pick up tlic pieces 'Vtuid rcjtiiir^the damage faster than the -civilixfttid'n of our forefathers. But it can do no more than they could do to keep the damage from being done. Like them, we arc here on .sufferance. .'Star Session' Justice The decision of a New York supreme . court justice upholding the rife'lit of newspapers to print news of ".slat-'session'' trials—if they can get it—will he applitudoil hy all who hc- licv<; in freedom of the press. In this Justice William F. Uloiiklcy refused to cite a reporter for contempt because,ho :hiul. written the .story of a libel suit afler/ilho court 'had scaled the p.tpcjs in tlic action. The reporter .said lie had obtained his. ne\ys from sources independent of the court. Ju.stlcc Blcaklcy ruled that it is a- fjniarimeiiliil principle of law that pub- h'catioii of an article may iiot be rc- sirained in advance, and he warned thai',; "unless that principle is" observed • in its strictest .sense, the right of the freedom oj the press is nljridt'cd." Thus he struck ill the SI-OWIIM/ practice of holding tiials in secret,. and simultaneously reaflirm'cd constitiitioii- al guarantees of i\ newspaper's rights. Rffecl of Loose Parole Iirmizio (I-upo, tlie Wolf) Saictln, New York's grizy.lcd Malia ton-oral, and thti oldest living big-time gangster i'n the United States, 'is -back behind the bars. Therein lies a pretty' good lesson in criminology. The 60-year-old racketeer had been released on parole from Atlanta in 1920, after having served half of a 20-year sentence. J3ut he went right back to Ins old game. During the last few years the hand of the "Wolf" and his homicidal organization has lain heavily on New York's citizens, exacting tributes in a gigantic racket, eering scheme almost without parallel. So the government repaired its error of, 16 years ago,and flung Saielta back " into jail. x .^ ^ tJ '• s /' Which is another example of the necessity of guarding the country's paiole power, if we are to be safe from return of our' Saiettas.

CHAPTER V ' ' COURTNEY'S explosive explanation at the news of a "Mrs. Peter Henderson" startled Helena. She brought'her lips closer to'-the mouthpiece of the. telephone. "You'll be here, then? And you understand:Peter's message about bringing Leah?". •' . ; ; '' "Of course I'll be" there'" the lawyer said. "But if you're really his 'witp'i'll be damned if I' understand jPelcr's' 1 message about bringing Leah. But I'll bring her though,-if that's what he wants. And if she'll come." Helena replaced the instrument in its cradle and dropped her bewildered head into her hands. John Courtney's tone had been unmistakable. So had the implication of his words. "Yes, I'm Peter Henderson's attorney. What's up .now?" Apparently Peler had more' than once been in trouble of some sort. And who was this Leah? Why had Courtney said that if Peter was really married he was "damned" if he "understood Peter's message about bringing Leah?" "Helena's whole body grew cold.' Was—was Leah really John Courtney's friend . . . or was she Peter's? Returning to the larger room, Helena found that Fain had been light. Sandra 'was leading the doctor, across^ the room. Helena hurried toward the physician. Your Baby s Health Call Doctor, Then Induce Vomiting, Should Your Child Take Poison IW DR. MOHItlS FISHBEIN .Cliildren occasionally pick up drugs in the : housc and. not nn- dcrstnndiiiB tl\D danger, swallow materials which mcnuce health and life. The first thing to do under these circumstances Is to call Hie doctor nt once, telling htm. If possible, what you srspect is the nature of the poison the child has taken. This is important, since most poisons have special antidotes, and the doctor "then can bring with htm the cue especially suited to the case. In the meantime, the child may be caused lo vomit it you are quite certain that he has swallowed iwlson. Fnr this purpose a slron? solution of salt water, taken warm in fairly large quantities, is about as good as anything. Everybody .knows that 'putting Hie finger Into the. tack of Ihs threat induces vomiting, When the child gags. It rtocs not require much encouragement to cause him to vomit. One advantage of I.irne quantities of. salt water ,is that it will weaken the mixtrrc of the poison even if the child docs not vomit. If the child has swallowed cans- tic substances, such as acids or things that burn, olive oil in water, or egg white in water, is a useful first old remedy. Always try lo find out the nature of the poison. An empty bottle in the vicinity, or presence of some of the poison In a cup In a utensil, oti the tablecloth flcor,,oi clothing may bs a valuable sign. An unusual odor on the brcatl may indicate the substance tlmt has been swallowed. Burns on the lips, tongue, and cheeks arc doctor anil«d down at her sky'beyond her window Hoi ' young, troubled face.

But it was nothing in the span of time compared with the few minutes the physician spent alone in the room with Peter. ' ' But finally she looked up to se< the doctor coming into'jhe main room of the lodge. His face was inscrutable, his manner jtill calm. Helena from Sandra's comforting- presence to learn Peter's condition.' ; "How is he, doctor?" < The serious-faced little man met her gaze. [."Your husband is to rather a serious state, Mrs. Henderson. Concussion, of course." He lowered his voice. "His condition complicates matters." Sandra rushed toward them, her eyes blazing in her excitement. "Doctor, if you're bluffing— if you're stalling and don't know the answer to this-^yoa'd better call a specialist from the city." The ' little doctor faced her calmly. "My dear young woman, this is a very simple case. Even simple enough for a poor country doctor like myself. A young man has been overdoing himself; for months, possibly years. Under the influence of alcohol he dives against a submerged stump, incurs a concussion of the brain. Even a specialist from the ' city could do only what I am going to do." "And what is that?" demanded Sandra. "Wait," smiled the doctor. "Make the patient comfortable, and ... wait. I hope it will be possible for me to stay here tonight?" Under his steady gaze Sandra wns quickly reasonable, and contrite. "Please forgive me, doctor. I — we're all so wrought up. Of course you may stay here." "Thank you." The doctor turned to Helena. "I want to suggest that you get some sleep, Mrs. Henderson." Helena nodded. Shc let Sandra ffuide her to the door of her room, but she felt certain she would be unable to 'sleep. Nevertheless, she lay fully dressed on the bed, arid soon had drifted into a troubled doze from sheer weariness,. -I'm his wife.

"On the tr night plane. Someone drove tl over from the town." She ) tated, then went on. "You ki-'! that Leah Frazicr came, ttf Helena did not answer at al, and Sandra added another qil.l tion. "Peter told you about Leal.I A cold fear look hold Helena's tieart, but she said, "i He asked me,to tell Mr. Condi; to bring her along."

Pelil Hours later she sat facing OLi Courtney, her eyes red with <-,] slant weeping, her lips pale sagging. He had been talking B several minutes, but Helena r| not heard him.
