Ballots For Health \ Now thai Uie voters have come out of the welter of political choice they must face the challenge of other problems which affect their daily lives. Within a short lime all of us will be asked to stand for or against a .sound health program. We cast 1 a.ballot for good'or bad health' almost every hour, of-the day by "the way we eat stand and sleep, and by our expression of opinion on matters of public health. Late in Noveni : bet', the public' is presented with- a health ballot in (he mails—a letter from the tuberculosis association containing Christmas seals. Purchase of • these seals amounts to casting a vote for health. * The popular vole to stamp out tuberculosis each year has helped immeasurably in. reducing the death rate. Before 1913 tuberculosis was the first rause of death, now it is, Seventh. Striking as that decline may seem at first glance there is no more excuse for resting in idleness than there would be for a company, of soldiers to relax when they have gained three-fourths of the way to an objective. . Tuberculosis still kills more than 56,000 Americans a year. More than .,; 30,000 of these deaths occur between .the ages of 15 and 45. There is no law to force this killer out of hiding for prosecution, but knowledge can eradicate tuberculosis. Christmas seals support the spread of health knowledge. When- we buy them we cast a balfot for health. We are : helping spread the information that periodic X-rays arc important to each and every one of us, that none of us is safe until all of us are safe. New Memorials In the current Architectural Forum, the poet Archibald MacLcish and the architect Charles Magnums debate the question of what form the memorials to' the dead of this war should lake. Mr. MacLeish holds for a "useful" monument, while Mr. Maginuis favors the purely commemorative type of structure. Mr. JIacLeish suggests that most American communities' will be faced with a choice between "monuments of a kind which are already far loo familiar, and structures which' may, by their usefulness, make up in part their lack as works of art." A "useful" memorial, Jlr. Magimiis insists, is a hypocritical sort of economy, like giving a-child a pair of rubbers for Christinas. He holds that no dedication can spiritualize it or make it anything more than a useful building. He cites "an auditorium in an important city in -Massachusetts, built as a monument of the last war, (which) has twice been the scene of dog shows, to the considerable disturbance of the rev- went atmosphere intended for iti" These arc (ho opening' guns of a dc- bnte which is bound to go on sporadically for years, echoing throng)).the halls of Congress and disrupting city councils and civic organi/ations throughout the land. There wouldn't bo. much need for debate if n Lincoln memorial or an Arc dc Triomphe or u Tomb of the Unknown Soldier could be assuenl for each commission. But such happy results of the incut- ing of disceriiinir patron and inspired artist are rare. So jyx'at care must -be taken to make the best use of imperfect material to express for the fallen soldier a gratitude which at is meager, and to honor a service beyond repayment. Hence the debate. But perhaps tlie opening guns have been fired too soon. For there is another debate on the form and structure of a monument to our war dead which must come first, and which will challenge the wisdom and effort of all of us. .That is the structure of a world peace organisation. This monument wo arc at least, agreed upon. Hut its balance of idealism and practicality will be and .should be debated. Its foundations must be examined carefully. This is not alone the job for the craftsmen who build it. It is the concern of all the people, a.s representatives of the men who with their lives "commissioned" this monument to peace. ~ Once the structure of vlhis world organization is built and has given . proof of its enduring qualities, it is probable that, as Mr. Maginnis says, "We shall be at-no loss to find the felicitous .symbols" in gold and marble.

Us impression upon the national consciousness is about a.s profound as that of National Chrysanthemum Week, or Arbor Day. And we keep right on having fires. Perhaps Fire Prevention Week does some good at that, for our record is somewhat better than it was 20 years ago. But it is slill nothing to brag about. Last year serious fires swept the country at the rate of more than 1000 a day. Over 370,000 homes were destroyed or seriously damaged. That is more houses than there are in Cleveland. Ten thousand lives were lost in those fires, and thousands more were injured and maimed. That most of these fires could have been prevented is an old story that needs telling again. So here are some simple precautions which everyone knows, but which might be checked again—and it's not. necessary to wait for Fire Prevention Week, which begins Oct. 8V to do the checking: Bo sensible about matches aud smoking; clean your heating plant and keep it in good repair; clear papers, rags, mattresses, old furniture from storage areas; cover inflammable roofing with fire-resistant material such us asphalt shingles; don't store or use explosive .: cleaning fluid; repair defective oleclri- cal equipment, and disconnect appliances when you arc through using them; use metal containers for ashes, never wood or paper. ,"Il .seems like n dreanii dear!

But as month after month of inflation aggravated the suffering ot the people, the country seemed almost ready lo disintegrate of itself, without any pressure from oulside. If the people were lo find unity again, it must be the magic unity of facing a common foe. Why not, the secret circle wondered, entice France into doing something to the German people that would make her appear (heir common national enemy? England and the United Stales were already following live German propaganda red herring-, that France was insisting on unreasonable demands to crush poor, helpless Germany. Reliable witnesses have since -staled that German industrialists deliberately curtailed their reparations deliveries of coal and wood to France, precisely in order to goad the French to action. Like so many German ruses, this one worked to perfection. :'Thc exasperated French and Belgians inarched into the Ruhr. rTheir Allies grew cool, the Gcr: man factional frictions dissolved 1 in the need for a solid front. With '. Ihc Socialists nnd (he Nationalists 1 pulling together on the same learn, lo point the men for active combat with the French. Then came the compromise. The German militarists found themselves, however, with trained troops on their hands at the peak of a well-cultivated patriotic frenzy. What lo do with them? To some of the leaders it seemed like a fine time to get rid of the. haled Republic, especially lo the Black Reichswehr groups in Bavaria (which was then run by -eactionary government anyway), o General LudendorlT, anil to his nmil, Adolf Hitler. i ft 4 ' JEITHER Ludendorff nor Hitler ^ realized at the lime, however that the Ruhr crisis had strengthened the Republican government not weakened it. General von Sceekt had seen how zealous!] the Republican leaders had labored for German unity. There wa henceforth' no reason why he ant his associates could not work wiil the Republicans. So when Hitlc and the lesser Munich plotter sought support from army head quarters in Berlin, they got cold shouldered. This rejection made Genera Ijudcndorft and his protege, Ado! Hitler, all the more frantic lo ac Co achieved the dig- recruitment and of Under the prelense ot organizin "field exercises," they surnmone their soldiery to Munich for Nov. 10. Two days before, Hitler sensed !X certain distrust among the Bavarian conservatives. He decided not to wait for his reserves to arrive from the Bavarian mountains and the small town bccrhalls, but to seize power in a surprisc-and- bluft attack. Stale Commissioner von Kahr had called the small businessmen of the district together iix the Buergerbraeukeller, a Munich beer hall, for a leclure on economics. What could be easier, thought Hitler, than to surround the place with the available Storm Troopers, win over the men inside and move on to the government buildings, pursuing the Kapp Putsch technique? Thai is what happened, or almost Hitler, altircc! iir a ~ ' Ibert coat, brandishing a pislol, reclaimed the revolution to the OflO- astonished burghers, and ook Slate Commissioner von r, General von Lossow, and police chief, von Seisser into n anteroom. There, while Goerig soothed the crowd in the main nil, Hitler ouliinccl the form of ic new government in whiclSiiC\Lfc £ them v.'.is lo have a fat jobm^B er his orders. They remai.tfjp np.issivc. Then iic slarled 'to lead with them for their co- peivition and ended, to their disgust, with an hysterical threat to ommil suicide if he failed. * * * |'N the meantime, General Ludcn- '• dorlT, who hadn't known of he change in schedule, was haslily ( jummoncd from his villa in near- ' ly Ludwigshoche. And while he i Tied to persuade Commissioner; von Kahr and General von Los- '_ sow lo join forces with Hitler, • [icichswehr officers on duty in. Munich heard about what they; called the "Wild West scene" in. the Buergerbraeukeller. They; promptly reported to General vonj Sceekt in Berlin. ! General von Sceekt informed: the Munich Heichswehr officers! lhat lie could not tolerate insub-. ordination of any kind. J The Nazi chiefs determined to • go ahead and fake over the gov- ! crnment buildings. General Lu- dendorff volunteered lo lead Storm Troopers. Itis'popul with the Reichswehr men with the police, he fell, v, _ keep them from firing, induce them lo join his side, and allow :; the coup to succeed. : But the police did fire. The ; brave Nazis scattered in all di-; rcclions. The one hero of the mo- j riiCnl was Ludendorff's orderly,; who, by throwing himself in front! of the general, died of the bullet! meant for his superior. Luden-i dorlt marched straight ahead, and: in the end was arrested by the! police.
