I REVISING WORK RELIEF *No' issue, in the many involved in the six months' intermittent discussion of. relief in the Congress, attracted more attention than that on the Federal Theatre, which went out of existence recently, after three ana ohe-haft years of government sub- stdizatiqfi. The theatre proposition BJay have been meritorious, from an art and a relief standpoint for after all. acting is a. profession and has been for centuries before there wen? other sorts of professions, and thero no question but many a thespian felt need for some sort of financial aid after the 1929 market debacle. But the theatre project, and the art and sculpture project, were marks at which critics could always raise a laugh, especially as it was fcot the conservative actor, artist or sculptor that was on relief rolls, bui the younger and more liberal and long-haired variety who talked toO| ntuch of. Communism, and of new laovemehts and so on. as youth may generally- do. The theatre project concerned the larger «itiesrb«t -its scop* may be realized when it is Considered thai 32 units in New York City alone were halted when Congress balked at continuing financial aid through WPA: there were 3,512 actors anc actresses in all on the WPA roils, and while there were three Broad* ·way productions included, there was also a WPA circus, a puppet show c two, arid several companies engaged in staging classic revivals for hign school presentation, and some outdoor shows. The theatre project had strong backing, including that of Mr;. Franilin D. Roosevelt, but it lacked the nation-wide interest essential to secure votes from members of Congress. who have felt that WPA hr,s Lad too many frills, too mny political bosses. and too much diversion -pf- funds from the actually Personal Health Service By WILLIAM BRADY, M.

The trend is to get WPA down to strictly relief wort, as a substitute for home re l:ei and to serve no other purpose.

No longer will a carpenter be able to earn his monthly allowance in a half-dozen days of work at $11 to $14 a day while common laborer toils throughout the month for the same money.-* · *-· - ·. Under the present act, every type of worker will work 130 hours a month, regardless of whether he is a shovel hand or plasterer. For that amount of work, each will be paid the same money -- a country average of about $61. Certain exceptions are written into the bill. For instance, in parts of the country with lower living costs, the rate of pay will be lower. Further, a single man with no dependents will be allowed less per month, and will work correspondingly fewer than 130 hours to earn it. * » * A Pain In The Neck The disparity of wages between skilled and unskilled workers has been a pain in the neck to the WPA administration ever since the idea of paying the "prevailing wage' ? to WPA workers was invented more than two years ago. The original purpose was to prevent WPA wage scales from undermining the wage scale of labor :n private industry. Since a man working on WPA is allowed to earn only a certain .,vm each month, his rate of pay might be high enough to permit him to earn it in eight or nine days. He was free all the of the month. Colonel Harrington. WPA administrator, told Congressional committees that a man wiih such free time would offer to work in private I industry at cut wage rat as. and thus tend to break down the very wage 'scales the old terms wer» supposed to protect. ! He called it chiseling because H hurt wage scales and because it j tended to keep men on rel : ef who. if [har'er pressed, might 'wve gotten ou; into private employment The new provision will keep WPA workers on duty mos; of each month, regardless of their skills. Harrington said that men compelled to work 130 hours or. relief for an amount they could earn in private industry is iar less time would lively get out and hustle for private jobs. LOOKING BACKWARD Interesting Items Taken From The FUea. of The Daily Me»- Ten Yean Af* Many travellers ask what precaution one should take in the way of prophylaxis against various diseases to which one may be exposed in various countries. In general the tourist or travel- ler planning a visit to a foreign country, particularly a southern or tropical country, or for that matter to southern parts of our own country, is wise to take the following precautions: 1. At least a month in advance of departure be immunized against typhoid and paratyphoid fevers. This is simple enough--you report t o . your family doctor for a "shot" (hypodermic injection) of the bacterin ("typhoid vaccine") today and again for a second shot in a week and finally for the last dose in two weeks. Occasionally the reaction to the first dose is unpleasant -- headaches, feverishness, etc., for a day cr two. But that only indicates how extremely susceptible you were to typhoid or paratyphoid fever, and hence how fortunate that you are now immune or rather that you will be immune in the course of several weeks--it takes several weeks for sufficient immunity to develop to protect one against all but overwhelming, massive infection. 2. Procure a vaccination certificate from the physician who vaccinated you against smallpox if you have been successfully vaccinated within three years. If not, be vaccinated now. ar^J obtain the certificate, which is essential for entrance to many foreign ports. 3. I don't care whether you carry a toothbrush, garden hose, safety pins and black pajamas that won't show the dirt, but I earnestly advise you to drop in for a chat with your dentor and let him put your teeth in good working condition before you go away. 4. Safest to avoid drinking water or milk, in foreign or primitive places, unless you are sure it has been boiled one minute. Likewise shun raw salad vegetables, greens and fruits, except those you pare or peel yourself. Cooked food is always safest. 5. Carry a wee vial of common brown tincture of ipdin, and put two or three drops in a quart of water, shake up, let stand twenty minutes before drinking. If you have'to drink questionable water in an emergency. 6. Carry enough quinine in two- grain pills, tablets or capsules of quinine sulphate, to provide you with a daily prophylactic dose against malaria -- two grains of quinine three times a day thru- out your stay in malarial district. This is the standard quinine prophylaxis against malaria recommended by the World's representative medical experts of the League of Nations. DAILY MESSENGER PATTERNS Other Difficulties And the old provision caused other troubles. Harrington explained. "An example of the difficulties involved in scheduling operations as a result of the Differences in the hours of work for different classifications is afforded by a building construction project in P : .tt-sburgh "Bricklayers are permitted to work only 48 1-2 hours per mona: while the hod carriers worl: 63 1-2 hours, the building-trade laborers 89 hours and unskilled laborers 12C hours. On the same project a plumber is limited to 50 hours work a month, while his helper must bs schedule:! for 71 1-2 hours of work Compressor operators are limited to 56 3-4 hours per month while jackhammer operators getting power from the compressor* are scheduled for 119 hours of work. i "It is obvious that schedules such las thrsc iriider any practicable type [of r'ngg'-Tinn of employment ineffcc- · live in producing efficient opera- I tions."

Tried many remedies, including your formula as given in your monograph on pimples and blackheads, but without much success. Then on your suggestion I bought a peck of wheat from a farmer and began grinding it in our old coffee mill and eating it as a breakfast cereal -- and it is the finest cereal I ever did eat. Since I started this my pimples have cleared up and I am in fine condition. Is it the vitamin B-complex in the wheat, or what? . . . . (O. T. K.) Answer -- I dunno. But everybody should eat plain wheat in one form or another. I have a monograph 'Wheat to Eat" that describes the benefits and gives various recipes. For copy send 1 1-2-cent- stamped envelope bearing your address. If you ask any other question, the envelope requires three- cent-stamp. Beware the Charlatans My husband is doctoring for hernia with Dr He started treatments (injection treatments) over two years ago, has had over 70 injections and still not cured. (Mrs. M. E. P.) Answer -- I fear your husband chose a charlatan -- the man you mention is not a graduate of any recognized medical school. You can't rely on the qualification of every self-commended artist who calls himself 'Doctor." Nerves and Nutrition I am getting excellent results from following the regimen given in your booklet on nerves. I take calcium and vitamin D regularly, also the iodine, and have improved greatly in the past four months. (Mrs/D. F. B.) Answer -- Both or all of the things you mention are rather food than medicine. Hence you will not relapse or suffer any setback when you rest from the supplementary food. Copy of the 60-page booklet "Nerves and Nutrition" mailed on request if you inclose 1-cent- stamped envelope bearing your address, and in coin twenty-five cents. (Protected by John F. Dille Co.)
