Cotton's Choice \Vo hiivc no liking for this role of Ciis&imlrn, which is never ;i hii|)|i.v aim. Bui we think it is time Hint the i»ress of Uio coKon boll speak out in vigorous if iimivHiiinrr protest ugii'msl iiolic- ics which, if continued, am end only in disaster. The mere rumor thai Use government might not extend tlie 12-cent "peg" loan to the HK!f> cotton crop was sufficient to cause one of llic most disastrous mnrkct breaks of recent years. What better evidence could there be of tlio nnsoundncss of such a loan? Yet the only remedy which is offered is assurance that the luan will not ,be withdrawn. The government's crop conlrol and price stabilization program was necessary to meet an emergency. Jl is not loo much to say thai it, saved the 'South from economic Kiil'ils benefits will be lost unless there i.s an early realization of the fact that it does not afford u permanent solution of the cotton <iuestion. It does not get at the root of Ihe problem, which is the dwindling of foreign markets for American cotton, and no program which fails in thai can do beltei- than postpone disaster. The .situation today is that American barriers to foreign goods, American curtailment of cotton production, and American pegging of cotton prices have made it difficult for foreign customers to buy American cotton mid profitable Cor foreign growers'to produce cotton. It ruciuires no special insight to see where that sort of thing leads. By continuing to loan 12 cents a pound the government can keep Ihe pain off 'Hie American grower for a time, but the result is to hold American cotton out of consumption and force foreign cotton into consumption. The ultimate outcome is not pleasant to contemplate. Our choice boils down to this: American cotton producers must either meet world comiiclHioii ov they must cut production to lit the domestic market. No compromise can be more than temporary. It us about, time the situation was faced on that basis and a program adopted to lit one purpose or the other. The first requires production and sale of cotton, for the present at least, at something less than 12 cents a pound. It also mm ires modification of tariff barriers wliich prevent foreign nations from paying for American cotton with their goods. The second rcym'res cuiinilnicnl of production to an extent scarcely suggested by tlic current control program. A possible modification of the second plan would be a domestic allotment sy.slem' under which each grower wotiM be permitted a definite production for a protected domestic market, with .the option of additional production for sale at world prices. The first choice—to meet world competition—is to be preferred. But it cannot be made without tariff changes which, despite overwhelming Democratic majorilies in congress, seem remote. The .stcwul choice, while it would involve many grave and difficult readjustments, would at least work. In fact if is probably the only program that will work permanently HO long an the high protective tariff remains an integral part of American policy. Accident Preventers Or. iKrederic \V. Bancroft, associate professor of clinical surgery at Columbia University, reveals that there is a, movement among medical men to foster the establishment of a long chain of medical first-aid stations along American highways for traffic accident victims. I'Vccjiicncy of such accidents, he points out, makes it necessary to provide some means of giving trwilmonl lo victims. A series of lirsUiiii .stations \vould save many lives and prevent much suffering. II. might also have another good I'tl'wl. The pvesenc« of such a chain of dressing stations might shock us into realizing how intolerable our traffic, accident toll really is. Properly shocked, we might some day lie stirred into taking action that would make highway traffic safer. .

For example, a trokcn bone, an inflamed liver, or an Inefficiency ol the tody to digest and ussimllalc EitBjirs properly might \K called structural disease.

A eoiislilcr.ible number of people gel along with less brain capacity than do others. If cells become inflamed, they may In: replaced by cells of the same kind, ov sometimes ll\cic place is taken by cells of fibrous or .scar tissue. If you cut. your hand, the scar ivfiicli is farmed Is not of the s^mo kind of (issue us Iho .skin damaged by (lie cut. If the cells ol ihc pancreas, called the islands of f.ansjrehans, am damaged, they are not repaired by tissue of the same kind, but instead by fibrous tissue. These are the cells primarily responsible for development of the substance called insulin, which is necessary for use of sugar in the tody, If enough damage is done to three .special cells, diabetes follows. * $ « There sve. however, other kinds of discuses Jn which «» definite change i.s found in any cells of til? body.
