Mr. Rasi^ob's Plan We do not see wJiy any Democrat, no matter liow linn a hclicvur in tliu prohibition of ulcoholic bcvfnijfcs, should take exception to John J. Kaskob's proposed solution of the liijnoi' issue. ' Mr. Itnskoh proposes not repeal of nntional prohibition, nor its modification with respect to those states that desire it, but simply urges recognition by the Democratic party of the fuel that the United States is a large nation, embracing many kinds of people living under widely different conditions —a nation wlios: strength and unity can best be preserved by permitting to its constituent parts a maximum'of self determination on all iiue.stions which do not involve the safely and integrity of the nation as a whole. New York and California do not wish to be told by Arkansas or Kansas how thciv local affairs arc to be manage:!. Nor do we in Arkansas wish to have our mode of life determined by the idsas that may prevail in Ohio or Montana. Tl is good common pense, as well as good Democratic doctrine, to permit the states of the union a maximum amount of freedom in-the handling of their own affairs. It is just this freedom that Mr. Ki'.skob proposrs the Democratic party should advocate with respect to prohibition. But he •.goes farther than this. that : control of the liquor traffic, even in .stales thai. dry in sentiment," is a difficult "problem, he would not withdraw fedci'al assistance .in niforcemcnt from the states which, wisli to retain prohibition. In brief he advocates simply this: modification of the prohibition amendment to permit the sale of alcoholic beveragus in states which desire it; vigorous federal co-operation in preventing shipment of alcoholic beverages into states which retain prohibition. Adoption of such a plan ought to satisfy all hut the small minority who have a passion for imposing their views on other people. It would also.,have the bnielicent effect of taking prohibition out of national politics. Science vs. History Ambitious biographers, by their relentless r.scarchi's, arc not the only ones I: i'nl on exposing the unreliability of traditions \vu havu come to associate with the niiikti's of American history. Science, it now appears, lend a helping hand. At tin. 1 University of Wisconsin the • other day, Dr. .(. II. Ma thews, an ox- perl in ballistic^, announced that Daniel Boons, that hardy pioneer whose- hair- raising exploits among the Indians thrilled us as youths, was really a terrible shut. The smooth-bore .gnus they had in those day.--, the professor contends, weren't at all ' conducive to accurate shooting. So Dan'l couldn't possibly have dune all those things attributed to him l>y the writers. Thus another tradition bitts trie dust. If wn must concede that this colorful Indian lighter was a bum .-hut, most of us will right fully continu?. ID regard him as a pood si-out. That is, unless additional ivcoarch reveals anything to the cnntvarv!

OUT OUR WAY expressed by the diaenoslj |,ype r I thyroidlsm, Is i'.self a serious con- Iditlon regardless o! the effect It [may have on the blood pressure Certainly it Is associated u-lth an unusual increase In the chemlslry of the body, with speeding of the pulse, overstimulatlon of Ihe nervous system, and other serious symptoms. Hence there Is plenty of reason for applying modern scientific medicine in its control, Including removal of the thyroid gland, in the presence of such symptoms. The direct relationship between hyperthyroidlsm and changes In the blood pressure may not be clear, but, as has been stated, the other symptoms ore so definite that the absence of any effect on the lowering of the blood pressure need not be taken as a reason for avoiding proper surgical measures.

Imagine yourself setting out to do the morning's shopping under such conditions.You'd drive down the street, looking in windows for the articles you needed - -the blouses for Johnny, the half-dozen bath towels, the toilet soap, the ginger ale for tomorrow's picnic. You'd stop, ask questions, examine the towels, smell the soap, wonder if here was your money's worth or if you might mid something better farther on. And though you followed this procedure mile after weary mile, you could never be sure. Computed simply in terms of gasoline and tires and shoe-leather, advertising saves you a startling sum every year. And if you add the value of your time, the amount is vastly increased. - When you buy a product Lhat is advertised you know in advance what you will get, how much it costs and where you can obtain it. That is why, in millions of modern homes, the newspaper advertising columns are a daily guide to purchases. Read the advertisements, decide what you need, then buy with assurance. : nn<.-'.!.;.ii<,js l 5V,ys:r:ai-o h.ivt :-.i.u-y \IUV.M ii.nv. : : :u-u-.lit of th? :r..-.
