Health, makes the following suggestions: "If you haven't done so recently, go to your doctor and have an in ventory made of your health assets. If the audit shows that you have liabilities as well as assets, it-is better for you to know about them, so that you can budget ybnr health intelligently. "In a recent survey of chronic illness in the United States, covering a representative population; of .over 3,000,000 persons, in widely separated parts of the country, It was found that one out of every five had some chronic disease, or suffered from a serious defect of vision or hearing or from some other, permanent physical disability. Responsibility for 1 a large part of the chronic illness was charged to diseases of the heart and arteries, the mental and nervous diseases, rlie'umatlsm, tuberculosis, cancer, diabetes, chronic diseases of the gall bladder and the complications of'syphilis. have been made except those from "the house of labor" and those are Ignored. Congress "gives Itself up to political bickerings" arid "America Is menaced now to a greater degree than ever before." Many others are convinced with Mr. Lewis that something must be done. But they do not agree with him that the thing to aid us in regaining the upward trend is lo promote class animosities and conflicts. They aro more likely to feel that the Lewis policies must share with Adminlstartion policies responsibility for much that unhappily has happened In tho last few months. Policies emanating from both these sources have done much to discourage business, to drive idle funds back into hiding, to discourage replacements and expansions. This is not to say that industry has no responsibilities, either to government or to labor. It does have those responsibilities. To government, it must pay it share of national maintenance; to labor, it must pay a proper proportionate share of profits. From both, however, it may demand a fairness of treatment which does not stifle, choke and suppress. Mr. Lewis seems quite hopeless as;he views the future. What he offers his followers is "organization;" but what for? For more bat- ties, for more conflicts bound to produce more unemployment? Or for a cooperative effort to restore confidence, to unshackle enterprise, to turn relief expenditures Into wages? Only the latter will open the way to a resumption of the upward march. ANOTHER WEDDING "While we are inclined to associate disability from such sources with middle, age or the older groups, it Is interesting to note that among the persons studied these conditions existed in about equal proportion among young adults as In the middle aged and older groups. It was observed also that the increase in the Incidence of chronic diseases began with those just reaching manhood and womanhood those from twe-ity years old and upward— and -reached the max- Wages Or The Dole Probably we are all agreed that wages are much more to be desired than the dole or relief. And there Is something in the contention that money paid in taxes can not be paid in wages. In a protest against increased taxation, telegraphed to Chairman Pat Harrison of the Senate finance committee and. Chairman Fred Vinson of the House subcommittee, A. W. Robertson, chairman ot the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company, says the Westinghouse company's taxes have increased 600 par cent since 1934—from f2,500,000 four years ago to more than $10,000,000 in 1937. The increase since 1035, he TODAY'S TALK By GEORGE MATTHEW ADAMS Author ot "You Can"; "Just Among Frlend»" a imum in the oldest age groups. "The point of special interest in this connection is that nearly every one.ot these chronic diseases starts with slow' beginnings that . may not even be recognized by the ' individual, but that often may be readily detected in a careful medical examination. Early discovery may not make complete recovery possible, but in many instances, through attention to every day matters such as rest and recreation, through some modification ot diet, or through some other readjust- Hent of the daily routine under a doctor's supervision, it is possible to, check the onset of disabling handicaps, and to prolong both life and usefulness. "It is quite r ;j important to have 1 a periodical audit of your physical resources as it is to have your automobile inspected or your bank book balanced from time to time. Neglect (n either case Is likely to cause disaster. This's a good time of the year to have your health account balanced and to start In on a health budget adapted to your physical resources." said, has been more than 111,000,000. Mr. Robertson stressed the point that "perhaps taxes we are collecting for relief are the very things causing unemployment." There may be some degree of truth in that. The degree will, of course, he measured by the amount of taxes diverted from wages to relief, and the proportion of those taxes made necessary to policies of government which have discouraged business from the exercise of its full power of enterprise. Of course, it will also he said, from another angle, that business has simply invited taxation by folding up, that if it will not carry its full share of the common burden by paying wages, then it must carry it hy paying What we all would like to seo happen in this country is the development of a government policy which will encourage business to put forth efforts to transfer the burden from relief to employment and a Quick and. unanimous response by business to such a change in policy. These Can't Be Taxed It is worth while to read Plutarch's Lives—to dip iflt them and learn from them. His heroes lives hundreds years ago, and yet the dominant things among the people o that time were war and taxes! The warrior was the big fig ure and taxes were as bitterly fought then as now. And coming down into American history, every schoo boy knows that the war of independence was initiated large ly because of taxes. But in all cases it seems to be, not mer taxes, but unjust taxes. People do not object to being taxe if they are taxed justly. Taxes are essential to any form o civilization. But when taxes become burdensome, and oppress th people, it is time to adjust affairs and find put what i wrong. We owe much of the beauty and happiness that i ours to just taxes,—our roads, parks, public buildings, am our government. Our only quarrel is with taxes that hole us back and kill our initiative. The best in life, however, is not taxed at all! There an no taxes on a love of beauty. Our faith is not taxed. Oppor tunity is not taxed. We can appreciate what we will withou interference, and we can soar as high as we will with oui ambitions. Taxes only bother the material. Our greates gains, in moral and spiritual welfare, come about through unselfish service. When we are busy at this, the question of taxes takes a rear position in our lives. The pleasure we gain from great books is not taxed. Not is the thrill that we get from fine and inspiring art. Oui enjoyment of freedom is not taxed either. Millions in country, enjoying freedom, pay no direct taxes at all. Friendship is not taxed. Many a man would trade his great estate for but one genuine friend! Most of us are far better off-than we think. If we think that we are not very well off and that we should have more than we have—without having to work for it—then we should think of someone who has far less, and who worked for everything that he has,' and yet is extremely happy. Happiness is not taxed—but we have to "work and earn it. And the more we give away of it, the more we have left! Winter Athletics Mr. Lewit Might Help John L, Lewis declares that dangers threaten tho nation and yet Congress does nothing about them. "Mills and plants . . . are closing down and turning men out,"'he told Ills eteel works' convention; "there are no adequate arrangements for relief and no prospects for other employment."

Tomorrow different -OGDEN, THE ONCE OVER •y H. I. (Cupyrlght, 1937, by Thi PHILLIPS Aitoclated Niwipiperi) Exit and Entrance The Old Year tiles, done in b forces vile— It staggers, torn and bleeding, t its doom, And to the New Year throws weary smile Unnoticed In the turmoil and th gloom. It shuts its eyes to hide its dar! despair, As hate and spite still linger at iti side, And dies, upon its whitened lips a prayer That soon may come an ebbing o the tide! II Hatred and malice were its con sorts blind— Evil and greed still follow at its heels; Now does it hope the young New Year may find Surcease from what its wounded spirit feels. Weeping, it shuffle,-, to the shadows cold. Leaving its bloody footprints in the snow, Wishing the carefree youngstei might be told, "Mankind again will never sink so low!" Ill Jealousies, dark suspicions, greed and lust... Through these it groped a twelvemonth, scourged and bruised: Year of revenge, dishonor and distrust, Seeing each day some new dark forces loosed. Now as it totters out, from anguish freed, This is the hope in which it flnds some cheer: Madness has reached its peak and MUST recede Order and love MUST mark the coming year! IV Venom and rancour crowd the Oli Man out, Leering and snarling as he disap pears; Screams of their victims echo al about, Filling the night with terrors an with fears; Yet as the New Year scampers down the night, Somehow this world so stricken and so drear, Feels that the day of mercy and o light May in the coming twelvemonth reappear. V She'll fire rakes great cities and do- nains, Pitiless tyrants torture, loot and slay.... Mercy and love seem something Man disdains- Yet may the New Year see a bette day. Hideous forces thrive and keep command, Threats and dark statements fill the very air,... Yet may the turning be quite close at hand, Sliding the year of sorrow and despair! L'ENVOI i Courage," the Old Year whispers as it ends, Weary's the world, and penitent and sad, Vailing the touch to make all mankind friends.... 'ours be the luck and slrength to do it, lad!" THE EXCUSE-IT-PLEASE ERA If things don't improve it may be necessary for Congress to declare a state of apologies between Japan and the United States. Control of whale catches is now being asked in the Antarctic, a prominent whaler claiming that there is too much competition. If the government wants to do something real big, hero is its chance of a lifetime. NEW YEAR WISHES The frost is on the pumpkin— It's also on the pane— The frost is on my'bank-roll In a way that raises Cain. But the heart is insulated- No frost can touch it there— So here's my frostless wishes For a year beyond compare!

He had done a set of stories for one of the big-paying magazines, and he had been asked lor as many more as he could write. "Everybody has forgiven us, Jerry. They have killed the fatted calf, and Bernice is having the time of her young life saying 'I told you so' to her parents. Nothing succeeds like success. 1 wish we might come out to see you and Mimi, but Bernice and I arc thinking of Paris — that is, if this unholy invasion of Belgium by Gef- many doesn't stir much. However, thin why With modern ammunition no war can possibly last six months. "The whole town is talking of your romance. It has been featured in all the papers, and I am sending you the latest account. Nothing authentic, but if your life like this sounds it must be at topnotch. Mrs. Le Brun says that Mimi's letters are rapturous—that she adores the mountains, and that you and she spend hours in the saddle. It sounds good to me at this particular moment, when the thermometer here is in the nineties. "All of our world is, of .course, away, but I have these stories to do—and. as I have said, Paris is in the offing. Olga is also staying on. There is talk that she may marry again—she is seen everywhere with a steel magnate who has just brought his plant ,to St. Louis. It would be the irony of fate, wouldn't it, if Olga should add multi-millions to grandfather's fortune? I wish highwaymen were in fashion, I'd tie my head up in a handkerchief, and strip her some night of her diamonds! Oh, well, old chap, here's to your health and happiness, but" I know you have them without my wishing. What are you writing? Don't stop because you have married a wife. Stiles Sanderson groana every time your name is mentioned. He says you are a genius spoiled by luxury and loving. He quotes Aldrich—you remember, don't you, The Flight ot the Duchess'?: "The woman I loved was now my bride, And the home I wanted was my own, I turned to the Goddess satisfied, But the Goddess had somehow flown . . . "For a man must live in a garret If I had given all the facts—that you work like a slave, while I twiddle my thumbs, we should be the laughing stock of St. Louis." "Do you think I care," J flung out furiously, "what St. Louis thinks ?" "I care," obstinately, "they are my people." There seemed to be nothing to say in answer to that, so we rode on in silence. I had had another letter which I did not show Mimi. It was from the employment agency, and it gave me no encouragement. At this season of the year women preferred work in the s up too hotels to that on ranches. They worry? mi £ht be able to do better for me later. The news seemed at the moment appalling. That very morning our half-breed, Sally, had left us. She and her husband had felt the call of the open road, and she was going back to visit her own people until cold weather came on. I had cooked the breakfast, and had carried Mimi's chocolate in to her. She had been adorable in a frilly blue negligee and lace cap. The contrast between the luxury encompassed by the four walls of Her room, and the state of the kitchen after Sally's hurried departure, had been startling. I had sat and talked With her, trying to make a joke of it all, while my heart was like lead. I proposed, before I left her, that she should ride to the postoffice with me. I had found that out of doors she was more like herself The untidiness of the house oppressed her, weighed on her spirits. While she dressed I had made things as straight as I could. I refused to face the fact that we should have .stayed at home, to bring some kind of order out of the awful chaos of Sally's hotlsekeep- anything aloof, And have few friends and go poorly clad, With an old hat stopping a chink in the roof, To keep the Goddess constant and glad." I read Lionel's letter to Mimi, as we rode home from the little post- office at the crossroads. She made no comment when I finished, but there was a flush on her checks, "It was good of you," I said, as I put the letter back in my pocket, 'to write that mother." way to your The flush deepened. "I knew people would be asking questions. And I didn't want them to know the truth," I turned In my saddle. "Just what do you mean by that, Mimi ? What is the truth?" "Oh, well, things are different, aren't they, from what we expected?" •Teg." "I told Mother that I adore the mountains, and 1 do. And when wo are on our horses, Jerry, I am Happy— that's enough for Mother. ing. Yet, should we have stayed ? And why face facts ? It was with a sort of eat-drink-and-be-merry attitude that I had closed the door behind us, and had left Jason on guard. To push the joys of our adventure to its extreme limits, I suggested later that we ride back to the house—get the little car, and motor to the hotel for luncheon. When we returned that night we could have a picnic nupper—there would be no dishes, no cares until the next day. Mimi was at once lighted by anticipation. "You're a darling, Jerry." And so young was I, so ready to be happy, that I flung all forebodings away from me, and took my .holiday with a will. When we entered the hotel, we were much observed. We still wore our riding clothes, and we created, as always, a sensation. I Was picturesque in- corduroys and broad sombrero, while Mimi, in gray, with her peacock feather, was like a gallant boy. I asked for a room, that we might make ourselves presentable, and when I had signed for it I cast my eyes idly over the names on the register. ' Then, suddenly, the world turned black. There was a scrawled signature which seemed to'have a sinister, significance; a name I should never have looked for in that place. I lost my nerve completely. I wanted to pick Mlml up and fly with her back to our ugly red- painted house and shut her in. I was overwhelmed by a sense of impending catastrophe. I controlled myself, however, and followed the boy to our room. As the bright light from the window streamed upon me, I sr.vv Mlml observing me with some curiosity. "How pale you arc, Jorry? Aren't you well?" I caught at that as giving me n possible excuse. "I have a beastly headache. Would you mind very much if we had lunch in our room?" A shadow fell across her face, but she managed to say, cheerfully, "Of course we'll have it—if : you'd rather." •My mood changed in a moment, j decided recklessly to take the : chance. If the thing was to be, it would be. Why try to hide ? "I'll : rest a bit, and see what happens," : I told her, "I don't want to spoil our day." : We went down,' finally, to the dining room. We were-late, and most of the guests had eaten and gone. I had little appetite, but ' Mimi was hungry, and enjoyed the really delicious food. She was as gay as you please and talked and sparkled. I responded as best I : could. To people at the otheri • tables we must have seemed at our, ease and carefree. And how could 1 they know that the sight of every- tall man who entered the room drained the blood from my face and made my heart beat madly? It was not until .we were a mile ; or two away from 'the hotel that li drew a quiet breath. Mimi insisted 1 on driving the car back, and I did! not protest. My nerves were; shaken, but that was not the reason I let her drive. I had a feeling that in keeping her eyes on the road she might miss seeing, clearly, anyone who passed. Nothing happened on the way home, but I knew the blow would fall, and it did. Three days later we were riding up the trail towards the lake in the cup of the mountains. The ascent was steep, but our ponies knew every inch of it., They stepped carefully, and took, what seemed almost insurmount-i able hazards with an air of lazy ac-j customedness. It is impossible toi give in words the charm of that high country—the wine of the air,! the perfume of sun-warmed ever-1 greens, the color and contrast of golden aspen and gray rocks, the emerald shadows of 'the wooded! spaces. We came at last to a plateau, j- where our horses rested. From this height we could survey the! trail below. We could see thei faint line of it, lost here and therej among the trees, but emerging al-j ways in a zig-zag descent towards! the valley. Not a soul was in] sight. I lifted Mimi from her horse, and held her in my arms. "This is our world, my dearest. Say that you love me, Mimi." . She said it. She seemed all mine) in that moment. My doubts fled.| . She was mine, no one could takei her from me ... We had brought our lunch with! us, and when I brought it from: our bags, I saw that Mimi was again staring down the trail. "There's someone coming up," she told me. I crossed the intervening space and stood beside her. Far down a horseman was ascending. He wore a broad hat, which, at that distance, gave the effect of an anl-; mated mushroom as it bobbed up: and down. As he came -nearer we caught the "tic-tac" of his horse's hoofs on the loose rocks. Then we saw his lacquered boots gliaten ini the sun. He rode in the English style, and lacked the swinging- grace which makes the cowboy the centaur of the plains, Higher he came, and higher. I was aware of the horseman's height, of his length of limb. Then suddenly my breath seemed to leave me! I knew who it was. The thing had happened! Here! was the man whose name had .been! scrawled on the register. Andy Fuller was riding up the trail! (To Be Continued)
