We Might Put Science to Beneficial Use The job of the scientist, snys Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace in a recent Scientific American, is not finished when he has handed the world a new discovery, lie ou^hl to he prepared to insist thai his discovery he used to benefit mankind. The secretary's remark is not u new complaint, hut since- it is one thai has been consistently ignored, for many decades, it is worth while ID stop and have another look nt it. "Instead of oomplaccnl after-dinner speeches in sweeping defense ol science," fays Mr. Wallace, "I should like to find our more articulate scientists insistiiii! that the benefactions of science he used only in ways that are plainly in the ycncrid welfare. ,. "It would be ciu-ouriifdiie to find, nmoiitf .scientists everywhere, .some evidence of honest indignation at the way the gifts of science have been turned iiguinst society and therefore against science itself." * * * It takes only a very little thought to reveal what the secretary is talking about. Brilliant men, for example,, discover the secret, of flight, and enable men to soar through the air like the birds; -.., and so far the chief result has been -'Mo make war infinitely more . horrible '^iml to include women and children on its casualty lists. Other brilliant men devise ways of enabling man to increase immeasurably his capacity to produce useful things. As a result, a few men gel very rich, while a great depression sweeps down on the land and millions of men are unable to get jobs of any description. Still other brilliant men make it possible for voices and music to be sent hundreds of miles through the air; and we .get, accordingly, a mass of trivialities, banalities, and stupidities thrown at our firesides evury night in a volume to make the angels weep. You can cite many more examples, but these are enough to show that the secretary was quite justified in making his protest. We have today enough marvelous inventions to turn the earth into a fruitful and idyllic garden spot. If scii- —Bruce Cation. OUT OUR WAY The South Should Benefit Tlic rccipim'iil lurilT liill, which ;i|>- piirL'iiLly is SUDD to Ijocoinu Isiw, ia tuil ii free trntle measure, DV even a very long slep in that ilirwlioii. It involves no al>;inilonnicnt of Ihe protective lariir principle, but rather a mixli- Ikation of it to fit chaiiKi'il cuntlilions. of its limitaliuiis Hie liill tines not promise tlie South i-umplete relief from tlie ocoiiomii; liandiaip im- iler which il has labored for a hundred years. H does, however, promise definite benefits, the extent of which will depend upon how tlie powers which the measure entrusts to the executive branch of the government are used. When tlin bill becomes law the. president will have authority lo modify existing tariff duties by as mud) as GO per'cent. This power, the bill contemplates, will be used lo enable foreign buyers of American products to pay for them in goods which they produce and we can use. Liecausc cotton is the chief American export product, ami because tobacco, naval stores, lumber and oil are. also export products, Ihe South should benefit particularly through whatever stimulation the bill may provide for foreign trade. Such benefit, it should be pointed out, will be Ihe result of no subsidy, but rather will come from partial elimination of subsidies Ihe-South for years has helped to provide for producers who have been unable to meet foreign competition without tariff protection!

This saved the church a lot of money. I have always been in favor ol "better government for less money." as we had no preacher of course the members began o drop out, and as we had Jo ew members I could see no rea- to spend money for another preacher. 10,000 SNOWSH06 PA66ITS HAVE BEEN SHIPPED FROM WISCONSIN TO NEW YORK STATE SINCE A\ARCH.

According to Dr. S. S. Goldw;itev, hospital commissioner, who lias just drawn up now rules limiting free hospital treatment to who are unable to pay, a man and his wife who have to livn nn an income of than ?20 a week are officially indigent and need not pay for hospital services. If they have a child, the limit is ?25 a week; if they have two children, it is ?;!0 a week—and so on. Here is s-oimitlring that makes one slop and think. To lie sure, ruUw lire geared to New York's metropolitan area, where living e\|)eiises arc higher than in many other places. Nevertheless, considering the number of men who arc employed—and glad to be employed—at ?20 a week or less, it is evident that our boasted standard of living may not be quite as high as we have thought.
