League of Nations No Better Than Its Members It' you hiiyc innocently wondered why the League of Nations was (inile unable to tlo anything .in the least' effective itlojij? Hie linu of .'lowing up Jjiinm's seizure of lumtory in i\I;iti- churiii, you might prctHiiljly ruad tlie cnrrenL cubic dispatches about Italy's dispute with Abyssinia. Just wiuit has been happening in those. suii-spiUon outposts along t!ic Ethiopian border is not at all clwir— " won't be clear, probably, until the smoke clears away ami a good many young men of both races have died. But it is evident that the excellent old t'fiine of imperialism is being- played, •anew, • ami the wind-tip will probably sec a new sector of Africa experiencing the joys of European rule. T\\o or thicc things are rather significant. » * . One is the fact that Abyssinia appealed to the League of Nations to settle the dispute, and that Italy refused to permit it. Another is that Prance, according to a recent cable, "has agreed tacitly to give Ihily a flee hand in dealing with Abyssinia, wen to taking over most of lliu country," In other words, Italy is behaving toward Abyssinia—\\illi liuropu's gen- • eral, consent—in much the same way that Japan behaved toward China; and this need not imply a criticism of either nation, because that is the way strong nations almost invanably behave toward weak ones. Our own nation got possession of California and the other .southwestern states in much the same way, incidentally. Now the thing to btar in mind in this coiiimclipn ; s simply the fad that a stream can rise no higher Hum Us soiiK-o. An international organization cannot impose on any nation a rule of 'conduct which all its member nations .jure not ready to accept for themselves. * • * * The league, lo be brief, coidd not p keep Japan from taking what it wanted iti Hie Orient bcc.uise the loading members of the league have done the .same -sort of thing themselves and OUT OUR WAY arc prepared to do it again if they see fit, Tho plain fact, then, is that no international league can keep the peace until the nations which compose it are ready to turn over a new leaf, individually, in their own dealings with other nations. The Italian squabble wilh Abyssinia is clear proof that we have no! yut reached that point. It explains why the league was impotent when Japan raided Manchuria. —l-Jruc'c BL1THEV1LLE, (AKK.) COURIER NEWS' Fewer Deaths Under Stress One of Ihe oddest things about the depression is the fact that the death rate has been falling. When people nre going hungry and arc- unable lo iwy for medical care, you would expect more of them to die; on the contrary, in such a representative state as New York, the death rate has dropped from J2..J per 'l.OOO inhabitants in ID2!) to 11,1 in J«I;H. The chief explanation, according- lu 0. J. V. do Porte of the New York stale health department, is fairlv simple. It is, he says, "the fact that state and federal governments have assumed ever greater responsibility for maintaining of life among the millions of unemployed and their families." A Mhwrp -commentary on American society, when you stop to think of it— the fact that so many people get better attention when thi-y arc broke than they do when they are self-supporting. Thought Throttled I'rof. Hermann Oneken, historian of Berlin University, lias been ordered by the Nazi government to discontinue li course of lectures he has been giving- to university students this winter. The reason is that he had the temerity to [nil, on history an interpretation dillerciil from the official Nazi version. That is, he denied that the course of history supports the theories which Nazi leaders profess to find in it. •• This little incident gives us a good glimpse at the suppression of thought which' is inevitable under an authoritarian regime. The function of a university is to hunt for and publish the truth—to hunt for it without preconceptions and to present it without fear or favor. A dictatorial government, cannot permit that, it can permit the publication of only a certain kind of truth- its own kind. Among the lirk (fiisiuJV.iels o r „ dictatorship is the free inquiry which is a university's excuse for existence.

Keep Your Face Clean If You a Clear Complexion KV UK. iUOllltlS h'dilor, Journal of thu America Medical Association, and of Hy- (,-eia, (lie Heullli Magazine Whenever the least little pimple •r blemish appears on your face or call), don't try to jrick at It with our flneers, no matter how clean hey may be. Doing so may make he condition worse and cause the pread of what is generally called cue. Acne usually refers lo that type 3f eruption which comes on in ng men nnd women in the ps- iod between youth milt manhoud tid womanhood. The scalp is caly, Die skin slightly '. greasy, nd marked by n considerable lumber ol blackheads and pimples. Sometimes these pimples break, orin crusls. and leave either liny ills in tlie skin, or scars. Since this condition is associated isunlly ivlth an infection by germs vhlch arc almost constantly pres- nt on the skin, cleanliness is of ireatcsl Importance. n is particularly important that he material from the scalp does lot spread down over the skin, if here is much infection on ii;<; orcheiul, (lie hair should be kept liorl. I'lciily of good soap and warm vater Is of «rcat liclp in lias mn- iilion. Solt water is preferable ind any good iion-ii-rilalin^ soap vill help lo clear up a greasy, scaly kin. If a clolli is used in washing ilhc face, thia clolh should be boiled each time after use and a new cloth should be taken frequently. It is sometimes helpful in such cases to apply repeated 3iot towels or io scam the face. .Tlie flow of pcrcjriration carries with it a good deal of infected ma- ileriid. After a scries of sucli hot I applications, it, Ls well lo apply cold briefly, lo contract the swollen blood vessels and iwres. The question oilcn is raised about (he use of makeup OH a face frequently covered with pimples and blackheads. Makeup will do no liarm if 11 is completely removed each evening ami applied freshly the next day. * * • The lotions i.-sed on Die face preferably should include those that are antiseptic by their content of alcohol, and which arc at the same time astringent. In many cases, it will be found that persons with acne arc constipated, n ml that they overeat. Both of these conditions should be corrected. There arc many cases in uhich the condition Is very resistant and in which the skin needs lo have its resistance stimulated. This can bo accomplished sometimes by suitable treatment applied lu the blooil, inclndini; the Injection of nonspecific proteins. In other cases, the condition may be helped by right use of the X-ray. The Editor'.
