A Hero In Peace Records of the' United States iinny list it grout number of heroes, and Jtcm'ly all of them arc men who faced great peril on the field of buttle. But there, arc a few who performed their deeds of heroism in lime of pe.-iec, and one of thesu was James Illldebraiul, who died in Atlanta the other day at the age of 80. Hildebraiul was one of the buck privates who in 1901, volunteered to aid Dr. Walter Heed and his. associates in the research that mn.dc it possible; to bring yellow fever inuler control. The scene was Havana, where yellow fever was almost disrupting the, anny. Sonic of these men slept in beds just vacated by men who' ha'd ''died of yellow fever, wore the dead men's clothing, ate put of their utensils, and made every, .'other possible effort to be in- feclcd;' ; , • ' ^ The oth'w'^ illvucf. in Hie most hygienic surroundings, 1 '- but submitted to , bites by .fever-infected mosquitoes.

Few men in our army's history dared more to accomplish greater cuds than did this man Ilildcbrand and Ills buddies. Baseball in Bus&ia Not the least interesting of recent dispatches from Russfa is {he announcement that the great American game of baseball is beginning to take hold in the land of,the Soviets. Already a national baseball league has been founded. : Nine provincial cities have •organized, teams, and' eight more arc being organized in'Moscow, A "baseball department" has been established in the supreme .physical culture department, and the game is being inlroiUimi into the Ucd army. It would be instructive to learn just why baseball catches on in some countries and not in others. H has swept Japan like w-ildlire, for instance; it is as popular in Cuba as in the United States and Canada; and it is making headway in other Latin American lands. But Russia is the only .European country/to date, to go for it. Why should this be? Certainly such countries «» Japan, America,'Cuba and Russia have little in common. How come they all share a fondness for baseball'.' Millions for Relief At the height of the Civil War, northern clt(;/,en s learned with a shock of dismay that their govorument WHS spending- |2,000,000 a day to carry on the light. Such expenditures, in thai period, seemed astronomical—too big for the mind to grasp. One wonders what those startled citizens would have thought if they had been toll) that eventually thoir government \v6uld spend two and one- half times that.much merely to take care of the victims of unemployment. They would have looked, probably, for the speedy end of the world. Vet that is just what is happening. Relief Administrator Hopkins reveals that federal relief rolls are now carrying 22,000,000 persons, with daily expenditures for food and clothing of ?5,000,000. it is a tremendous, unheard-of load, this relief bill. It has to be carried— but it is terribly obvious that it can't be carried forever.
