I.UK" r.nlililoii For the \ew York Acndemy of Meillctnr, Self Medication The physician who rails, against self medication is always a little subject to suspicion. He appears Ike a prejudiced preacher. Yet the old saying, "He who .reals himself has one fool for a physician and anolher for a pa- lent," was coined by laymen, and not by physicians. Extensive experiences, and recent ones in particular, have substantially justified the oft-repeated Warnings against self medication. These warnings appear especially warranted when drugs of un- :nown nature an'd potency are used. Picking at random, we have recently witnessed the disasters caused by "trick" diets. Persons who lave starved themselves or have .ved upon an unbalanced diet have jeen known to develop a multitude of disturbances and diseases. Including tuberculosis. Some have died. The indiscriminate use of seda- ives of Ihe barbituric acid variety have led sometimes to very grave and occasionally fatal disturbances ,n the blood system. A drug for weight reduction, self administered by many, was responsible for a number of deaths and for the formation of cataracts. The most recent example of disaster following self medication with a drug combination of unknown quality Is that of the GO- some deaths resulting from the use of the elixir of sulfanilamide. Another danger in the lay administration of drugs has recently jeen called to our attention hy podiatrists and public health au- .horities. This concerns the in- itilation of nose drops into infants' nostrils for the relief of nasal congestion. In a number of cases the oil so deposited was aspirated, that is, breathed into the lung, and there caused a type of pneumonia. Warnings have been issued by medical authorities urging the ;reatest care in the use of oily ma terials in the respiratory tracts of infants. Like precautions must be exercised in the use of oily nose drops hy debilitated elderly people, and adults weakened through llness. When the oil enters the lung, it acts as a foreign body Irritant and sets up inflammatory changes fa- •orable to the invasion of the tissues by bacteria. The pneumonia may then develop. FASHION HINTS The most striking thing about evening dresses for the young set this mid-winter is thtir sheerness. Dainty pastels, pink, blue, orchid, in net, organza, lace and tulle, are the favorites. Wide girdles, little jackets and othe • decorative details that glisten are used. A pink net. dress posed over pale orchid, and with orchid shoulder slraps, was one lovely model for the young miss. Sequin birds, flowers or bow knots are being used for hair orna ments. FACTS AND FANCIES Stuffings The kind of stuffing to use with meats depends on personal preference. With pork, \' is a good idea to choose one which is not too rich, letting the pork itself supply the delicious flavor. For this reason, n apple stuffing i: a. favorite, be- ause the apples lend the right amount of tart to make the whole dish enjoyed. Witb veal, a meat which contains little fat, the richer dressings may he used. AGED SISTERS HAD $10,000 WASHINGTON, Jan. 4 (/P).— Two aged sisters who suffered near-starvation in a squalid flat they had crammed with more than ?10,000 in currency and coins, rested in hospital beds today. The money, was discovered by representatives of the Southern Relief Society who found Miss Olivia Hale with a broken hip and her sister Roberta suffering from burns on the shoulder. Both women, believed to be more than DO yea •? old, had been injured doing house work. Money was tucked in furniture, vases and cushions. Along with the cash wer laboriously- sketched reproductions of checks, long since cashed which had been given the sisters by Scottish Rite Masons and others. Four persons counted the money for 12 hours and then were not finished. It represented contributions made to the feeble old women for many ears --and unspent. Each of the bills bore notations of the donor's name. Some of them dated hack 10 the years just after thi, CI/M War, ELECfToTFnGHTS FATAL TO TEN MEXICO CITY, Jan. 4 (/P).— Ten men were killed, said dispatches today from Guadalajara, In fights over municipal elections In Jalisco state.

""•**"• PAW, THAT TALE OP YOURS IS TOO FANTASTIC TOR AARS.PUFFLE: TO BELIEVE ' • OLD" FASTER AT COOKIN6 UPS AM ALIBI =~ WASHINGTON DAYBOOK By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.—Youngish Senator Lodge of Massachusetts buttoned a "prevailing wage" amendment to the special sessions housing bill that is proving as tough for administration members to handle as stinging nettle. The amendment provided that n building jobs inaugurated under the 90 per cent housing loan guarantee, all workmen shall be paid the "prevailing wage" of the locality. That means, for all practical purposes, payment of the union wage for carpenters, bricklayers, stone cutters and the like. The President wanted, instead, the English meth6d of paying workmen on an annual basis in Its housing program. He suggested that method of payment at a press conference as a means of rednc- ng costs so as to stimulate building. Apparently even Senator Wagner at New York, father of the housing legislation, was not wholly clear the wage subject, for he was on both sides ot the issue in the same day. When Senator Lodge offered his amendment, Wagner said, after some colloquy: "I propose to vole for the amend ent if there is a roll call." A few hours later, when the bill had been passed and sent to con ference with the House, Senator Wagner told reporters the Lodge amendment would have to come out. He explained it would bu den the Department of Labor to determine what were "prevailing wages" in different sections. But a deep seated reason was obvious. If prevailing wages are paid to workmen building these houses, the President's hope of scaling down the cost will go a-gllmmer ing. A carpenter's wage in many sections is $11 a day. That is the prevailing wage" payable under the Lodge amendment. That is $56 a week for five days. Experience indicates that house carpenters work perhaps 30 weeks a year at their trade, whch makes their an- lal pay $1.650. The plan originally contemplated in the housing bill was to encourage mass production of $5,0l 1 and $6,000 houses by large contracting companies which could provide year-round jobs. If a carpenter worked the year around—50 weeks—at $11 a day, his annual wage would be $2,750. But that would not cut the cost of building the house. Under the English plan the carpenter's 30-week wage would be spread over 50 weeks, perhaps with some increase. Thus the. carpen ter would build houses for 50 weeks instead of 30 weeks, turning out more work. This would reduce the cost of each house. His 30 weeks at $55 a week becomes 50 Weeks at $33 a week That is $6.66 a day, finite a cut from $11. Labor officials have disapproved the idea. If some compromise should be struck to boost the annual wage from $1,650 a year to, say, $2,000 a year, that would give a carpenter $40 a week, or $8 a day. But labor unions say there Is no assurance that more than a tew will get year-round work, while the ol hers, working Ihe same old part time for less pay, will worse off. Housing officials, on the othet hand, sny that unless costs are cut there will be no housing boom and rio work tor carpenters 01 plumbers. A compromise has not yet been found.
