After remarking thai tlu foreign customer cannot possibly buy from us unless lip can somehow get the necessary dollars, Mr. McHugh pointed out: "We intensified his difficulty in this matter by raising our tariff in 1930. The tim?j has surely come to forget whether we are Democrats or Republicans and think of this mutter in business terms. This is no time to advocate free trade nor to advocate the sweeping away of the whole protective tariff system to which we have so long been accustomed. But it is time to consider downward adjustments designed to permit the foreigner to sell enough goods in our market to put him in possession of dollars that in turn will enable him to carry out the volume of exports which is necessary to keep a balanced situation in the United States." The remark is commended to all who would like to sos good times return. The Least That Can Be Done It is hard, to quarrel very much with ) the University of Michigan';-; decision to "padlock," temporarily at least, the five fraternity houses in which considerable quantities of liquor were seized by police in recent raids. Students who go to colleges and universities arc more or less entrusted by their parents to the care of the school authorities. It is up to these authorities, to see to it that (lift young people are given wholesome surroundings and a proper environment during their leisure hours. Parents could hardly be blamed for feeling that the authorities were fflll- . ing down on their jobs if student fraternity houses were permitted to keep large stores of liquor on hand. We do not see 1 how the University of Michigan officials could have done other than • they did. OIJTOUU WAY Dancing Prince There is some compensation in belonging to the great commonplace. Its members may dunce with whom tlicy please and nobody knows or cares. But every lime the Prince of Waits asks u girl for a fox trot or a walU the fact is broadcast around the world, and tho maiden is asked just how it felt to have the manly arm of the heir apparent to the liritish throne encircle her waist. Miss Eleanor Nichols, daughter of Naval Commander Newton Lord Nichols, is the latest girl to have IK.TII interviewed on , the subject. With splendid judgment she told the <|iics- tioners that the Prince is a very likeable, human .vouny man. She enjoyed her dance with him. She probably never even t'avc a thought to the lilazonod heraldry Dial belongs to a prince's train, and he didn't, cillicr. llciii},' a prince today, except on state occasions, isn't much different than being a banker or lawyer.

While n bill jicnds In the Arkansas Icylsluliirc to raise the ensollne tax from live cents lo six cents, lion's conies from Topckn Hint Iwlli branches or tho Kansas Itglslnturc have passed n measure providing for Ir-.e coiUimi;ince of Cic present three-cent tax, Ami this action was tnkcn only lifter a member had ur(;ed his colleagues to keep a promise miule to the people ol Knnsas two years ago, that the tax should bo reduced lo two cents a gallon. In Oklahoma there lias been a movement, with Oic present status of which the Candle Is not Informed, lo reduce the gasoline lax from four ccnls (o threo' cents.

I pain concerned In such "caiilctiza-1 lion. I If it Is not certain that the animal tt-hich did the biting Is rabid, the anlmnl should be confined to tee whether or not symptoms of madness will develop. If these symptoms do not develop within to clays, It is probable that the animal did not have rabies at the lime It bit Ihc human being. However, ihe beginning of Ihe Pasteur trealmenl should never wait until tlie animal has died or been killed and. the ncgri bodies, which nre significant of rabies, are found In Its brain. Persons bitten by dogs which have symptoms similar lo rabies should take the Pas- leur treatment even though, all laboratory reports are negative. LJeath from rabies, either In man or in arlmal, Involves so much suffering lhat it should not lie imposed on the animal, and if the animal shows signs of madness it should be killed immediately. Animals which havo been exposed to rabies by having been bitten by other rabid animals should be held confined for at least three monllis or should be killed immediately. The question has arisen as to whether or not {>ct dogs should be immediately innoculstcd against rubles by the preventive melhod. i Physicians nre not convinced lhat | ! this is desirable any more than it " i ib recommended by physicians today lhat all people by routinely innoculated against scarlet fever or lock-jaw.
