Last Place for Politics Wlicn Ihc iialioiuil government i'lir- iiishos unemployment relief on a nation-wide scale, it is of tlic highest importance that the relief machinery be kept' on a non-political hnsis. The one unpardonable sin would he for any politician t n pervert a portion of it to serve his own ends. That the government is doing its best to keep its hands clean in this respect is evidenced by recent happenings in Ohio. - The Ohio governor not long Jiffo made a bitter attack on the relief setup in his stale, charging that it was wasteful and inoQ'icicnt. Abundant evidence WHS immediately oiToreil to disprove his charges; but, he j>ei-Kisted, ' and the suspicion arose thnt what he >e;i)ly ini]ilcfl*wns ;t clwncc to sliih" , llie relief agencies with his own po- .litical appointees.

It is impossible to read that sentence without a feeling of very deep melancholy. For 19M was the year the World War broke out; and this class of 19M j s composed of young men who were horn in that year. What a tragic group of young men! Bom in the year the world broke out in flames, many of them made fatherless before they bud cut their first teeth, brought painfully through a babyhood rendered difficult; 1 by , food shoitagc, blockade, and all the other tenors of the "homo front"—and now, leaching manhood, called to the colors to prepare for a new war! Fate has been more than ordinarily (AUK.); .COURIER OUTOURWAY^ unkind to those 'men. .Fate—and ordinary, every-dny human folly. Soil Needs Preservation One of the most important measures now being pursued by the federal Rovc'niment is the effort to check soil erosion. The problem of erosion —which most of us hardly recognized «a a problem al nil, until recently— was graphically presented in a recent speech by II. M. Bennett, director of the Interior Department's soil erosion service. "Most American soil has bijou tilled only a short time in comparison with thitt of Europe," he says. "Yet in the area east of the Appalachians, where there was no erosion when the white man took the land from the Indian, there are now 100,000 gullies 60 feel deep and a mile long. "America has wasted its soil resources more rapidly than any other country in the world." It is worth remembering thai our tremendous agricultural -resources have been the foundation of our greatness.- The task of preserving them is one of our most vital responsibilities.

First, several people wci^ (nken who knew tliat they always had distress after eating certain fixxh They were fed these foods and , asked to no(c how Ions nfler cat- 1 'us the symptoms appeared. , In some cases the distress com:s I on white the person concerned -still is at Hie table, in these ca«cs the reaction is definitely on? of ssnsitivity lo tlic food concerned in which case the person Is likely' to be very ill. In other cases Ihere i 5 . somi > other factor which is a sort of revulsion against the fond. In study- jiiB Ihess cases it was found that in some instances the nature of Iho food Mcmcd to }K unlmport- an;, since there was no given lime aflsr digestion and absorption and since, in fad, anything put into the stomach, even water, produced discomfort, or pain, or heart burn, or fcelcliinj. H was found also that "people who have d[sttc.y, 'immediately after n rnenl usually cat hturiedif and at times when they are tired out, exceedingly keyed up or espe- cially annoyed. "Tlil-j is Ihc disease of the mclher who prepares the meal," fays an Investigator, "and Mien quarrels with her children ,„• ln'i- barnl HI the (able; It is also the disease of business men JUKI lra - nie/i ivlio snip clown some foot! at a counter and rush | nck to work; and it is the disease of the president of a luncheon club; , cr of the traveling salesman.igor who gives public talks at luni-h- cons and dinnpis." The mechanism of. this kind of ami-ess can bo studied by the «sc of the X-ray. If the stomach Is lillcd gradually nnd ivith repeated swallowing movements, its muscle ntcrs relax and the Introduction of even large amounts of food does not gicntly the ifsstu-c within tlic stomach. If, however, the sujmarh is filled rapidly ami without much swallowing, the muscle fibers do not relax and there is discomiort. Investigators, years ago, shewed that the mere idea of catln« will usually cause the stomach lo'tcgm to gel ready for tho fcori by put- tins; out the gastric juics. if foo-J is Inkcn hastily or In times of annoyance, tills preliminary I]ow don not lake place. The investiuators nlso point out that the reason why people who Bet indigestion after eating like to chew gum is bscanss the repeated sn-nllowhig nflcr th? meal £(arls Hie waves going down the Castro-intestinal canal and stops the waves, in'tlic reverse direction, which produce bslchlng.
