CULTURAL PROGRAMS Officials of the Federal Communications Commission, issuing a ruling under which the Commission will examine radio broadcasts to make the sending stations responsible for possible effects in foreign countries or their programs open up a new and interesting phase of radio telephony. The Federal Communications Commission, under the free speech clause of constitutional law, has no right or authority to curb any broadcast, unless there should come a subsequent court ruling thereon, but the Commission has a hammerlock hold on radio station owners because the Commission can by law, fix the power, and withhold or cancel the license of any offending station. This may not always be so, for there will be test cases sooner or later, and just now, the Commission appears to be in the *3addle on determining whether this or that program meets both American and European standards. Radio has become an effective instrument of propaganda abroad. In Germany and Italy, radio stations outlayed by dictator-led governments, broadcast the inside news Innocent Bystander I PROGRAMS (Time Is Eastern Standard) NEW YORK (#)--America's railroads, their development and progress, arc to be depicted in a special hour's broadcast on WJZ-NBC next Friday night.

Nothing will create a greater!» smgle agency with the duty to volume of traffic for the railroads i regulate all carriers, and proper except greater economic activity. that government-controlled and censored newspapers cannot and do not publish. German stations make special broadcasts in English to attempt to influence the Bntis public mind, and British stations broadcast the side of democratic governments, hoping that Germans and Italians in large numbers will be listening in. Government leaders abroad now hasten to government radio stations literally to air their opinions and grievances, and .radio is playing an important part in some phases of public issues ana public discussions. How much U. S. shortwave stations could exert influence abroad remains to be seen, and how much attention American radio set owners would pay to foreign programs is also a question. Those who have tuned in on static-ridden short wave programs from abroad usually) find the results far inferior to pro* grams available at a turn of a knob | to almost any station at home, and j if there is anything more dreary i than an official German or British j explanation of new international complications, it is difficult to conjure such a substitute.

The right, to vote has generally bccu regarded as a privilege, hard- won lor the rank and file of citizens in most democratic countries. But there is another aspect of the question-- the duty to vote. There arc many citizens who value the privilege so little that they do not exercise it. In some recent by-cleclJonr in England only about a third of thr persons on Ihc register went to UM polling booths. Sir Frank Sanderson is a Oon- scrvali vc Member of Parliament wht mould put an end to such dllatori- IICK, He proposes to introduce a bill into the House of Common* which would make voting compulsory, thow who neglect the ballot being liable to « fine.

The substance now Identified as thlamin is pure vitamin B, which occurs only together with several other factors in the group called vitamin B-complex. White of egg is the only known food source of vitamin G (otherwise called vitamin B-2 and now identified as riboflavin) without vitamin B, and I can find no food source of vitamin B without the other factors of the B-complex. Extreme deprivation of vitamin is the cause of beriberi (the Singhalese term for extreme weakness), a form of slowly developing paresis or paralysis occurring in the orient and occasionally in this country. Altho beriberi (polyneuritis, multiple neuritis) is comparatively rare in this country, it is fair to estimate that many millions of people in North America who are reasonably well to do and not unable to get proper food but just well enough informed to select it, suffer from outspoken ailments and millions more fail to enjoy vite tho they might enjoy it if they only knew the essentials of nutrition, due to insufficient daily intake of vitamin B complex. It is contrary to my Hippocratic principles to suggest diseases or to display symptoms for readers to try on. But if I can say anything here that may induce anybody to take a step in the direction of better health, then to hell with Hippocrates and th code of medical ethics or rather hail to both of them (Hippocrates bids his followers "Do good if you can but do no harm" or words to that effect, and the code of ethics contains no injunction against teaching the public how to keep well). So just run your eye over some of the good effects an extra ration of vitamin B-complex may produce if eaten, say, with breakfast every day: Improves appetite; normalizes perverted appetite; restores sense of satisfaction with moderate or reasonable amount of food (especially carbohydrates) in persons who are overweight, flabby and who gorge on starches and sugars habitually or periodically; corrects constipation; relieves colon derangement or so-called mucous colitis; improves carbohydrate metabolism (vitamin B acts somewhat like insulin in this respect); improves action of the heart when there is weakness of heart muscle; helps to prevent or overcome juvenile hypochromic nutritional anemia; corrects faulty growth, riding and pitting of the nails; prevents chronic fatigue; prevents or overcomes ordinary neuritis; in. creases rate of growth in children whose growth is retarded; correct bradycardia (too slow heart beat) in some cases; tends to diminish craving for tobacco, alcohol, drugs; relieves vague numbness, tingling or pain in legs; improves circulation by increasing tone of involuntary muscle of heart and arteries. Among the better sources of vitamin B-complex, all of the entities of the complex including the "anti-gray hair factor," weight factor, growth factor, nicotine acid (perhaps specific preventive of pellagra) and others not yet chemically identified, are wheat germ, wheat bran, plain wheat, lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, spinach, prunes, oranges. The most economic concentrates are described in monograph "The Years of Youth"-- for copy send three-cent-stamped envelope bearing your address. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Canker Sores Please recommend something to relieve canker sores in the mouth. I have them frequently and suffer a good deal. (Mrs. F. A. J.) Answer -- Touch each sore daily with equal parts of tincture of iodine and glycerin on a wisp of cotton wrapped around end of toothpick. This smarts momentarily, but relieves the soreness or pain thereafter. Gently rinse mouth many times a day, especially before and after food, with an agreeably warm solution of heaping teaspooJJ-. f ul boric acid in pint of boiled .water. Avoid brushing teeth. See that any foci of infection in tonsils ;0t teeth or gums are properly treated; Hold Everything: Why don't you answer: the .plain, question I sent in three weeks ago,? ! I think your "health service" is a ' joke. (Anonymous Postcard). '· Answer -- Ol 1 Doc Brady select*' questions which he thinks suitable to answer here.
