This is made inescapably .clear by tlie remarks of President Roosevelt and Relief Director Harry Hopkins at the vecent relief conference at Washington. . . No matter what the federal government may do, as the president iwinted put, in the end the whole thing comes back to tlie responsibility of individual citizens and ortfaimntiom. And as a supplement to tliis there is Director Hopkins' blunt assertion that "I don't know a place in the UuiteJ Slates where relief is adequate." So far us'Blytheville and Mississippi county are concerned this simply means that the Red Cross this year requires the support of the general public just as much as it did in year.-; when there was no federal unemployment relief. The federal government can and is helping provide unemployed people with shelter and food—the bare necessities of life. But lhat is uinly a part of tho relief problem. . The federal relief agencies, for,'example, make no provision for mcnicnl or surgical care for without funds to pay for them. A civilized community cannot permit unfortunate victims of accident or illness to die for want of care, even though no department of government admits responsibility h: such cases. Physicians and surgeons give liberally of their skill, bnt hospitnlizntion and ambulance transportation are often essential and cost money. The local Red Cross has handled scores of such cases in the past year and must be prepared to handle many more in Ihe year ahead. That is only a part of iU work, hut it is a highly important part and an expensive part. There is scarcely u community in this country that has not had the benefit of this service. It must be maintained and to maintain it is essential that the chapter he provided with adequate funds.

"What's up? Christmas here again?" Body Can Stand Poor Air Better If It Is in Motion BY DK. MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Mtdkal Association, and of Iljr- gtla, the Health Magazine I suppose you know that sitting long In a cause you hot, stuffy room to feel fatigued. will But perhaps you believe, also, that this is due largely to lack o[ oxygen and an excess of carbon dioxide in the air. Well, you're wrong, if you think so. scientific investigators blame your fatigue on lock of ventilation. Sir Leonard Kill, famous British physiologist, has pointed out that natural ventilation set up by differences of temperature inside and outside a crowded room usually is enough to precent poisoning by chemical changes. Even when doors and windows are shut, chinks admit enough air to maintain a suitable chemical composition. Men have stayed under 'water in a submarine until oxygen has fallen below 17 per cent, an atmosphere in which a match will not light or a clgaret burn. Yet they liave recovered. * • * « There naturally Is about 5 per cent of carbon dioxide and II pe'r cent of oxygen- in the depths of tlie lungs. Breathing automatically Is ' arranged so. .' as to amounts the same. keep these You'll find -It -hardest to breathe oxygen at high altitudes, whero there- is ICES!. of this gas in each pint of air • than in an ordinary closed room.-- Men living .it high altitudes have .to become acclimatized. .Their hearls muse pump more strongly and tw,re. rapidly. They liave- to take JO breaths to make or.c step. , People who live more than 25,000 feet In the air. such as those who try lo climb Mount Everest, must have strong hearts, plenty qf red Wood, big lungs, arid deep breathing power. If a man breathes pure oxygen, he cap fly 44,000 feet high; without It, lie cannot survive 25,000 feet." There was a time when all sons of diseases were believed to be due to bad vntilation and to gases coming from marshes and sewers. Now it Is known that the diseases actually are due to germs transmitted from one person to another. In fact, sewer air has been shown to be freer from microbes than is ordinary-air breathed in most homes! There alstfwas/a belief'that night air \vas unhealthy. But night air Ij Ju'st'-'as healthy as day air, provided ''ft' Is not contaminated by germs or infested with mosquitoes, which carry germs. Formerly a person with tuberculosis was told to live near the young so as to absorb their strength. Now it is known that the young catch their tuberculosis in this manner. . Monkeys in zoos used to die of tuberculosis.- which they caught from human beings. Today tuberculosis has been abolished-from monkey houses by giving-the animals free' ventilation through, the r.oof. incandescent lamps.:to keep them warm in bad weather, 'warm, dry places.for sleep, .plenty of. good food'to. eat, and sunlight'.whenever possible. : They ;also have: been, provided with artificial, sunlight. • through .ultraviolet ira'vs.- • ,~ •<*• 1604-SirWalter Paletoh trial „ ' for treason ana- imprisoned, , D.C -for- first tiTne.I&vVn of new era--fear, huTnonsts and, _^ lobbyists.

"And she didn't leave a forwarding address?" Daimister per- stsicil. He knew, even as he asked, that she hadn't. Juliet France had gone away from the Hctel Tremont because she didn't wjiu anyone lo be able to find her. Evidently she hadn't trusted him, .hadn'l believed him -when he said lie would try to help her. Or did this disappearance hare a:i entirely different meaning! Did It mean that the alory the girl had told him that morning was a inn^le of He?.- made out of whole cloili to apnea! to .hts sympathy! Did :t mean she was a clever adventuress'.' "No, thcro's no forwarding address." the clerk said briefly. Uiuinlsler thanked him. turned hock toward the door. This time he wont out to the street, hailed a l:nl ,ind told the driver to take him to the Shelby Arms. He felt rather as though ha had divert (rom a high spring-board and landed fiat. Tlie more ho thought of It the more he was convinced thai the girl had useil him lo suit her purpose—anil how well she had done It, loo:—then arlfully gone her way. \viiat Uiose purposes were, what part he had played in iliem. linnnlaier could not guess.

If you'll just wait a moment while t get someone'to take charge of the desk—" H "// they could only.fnd thai ifomun —." His-t/ords broke off as he turned Ihe 4<V- OANNISTER muttered,- "Damn!"! and drew his brows together.

He wanted to-know now, more than ever, who Juliet France was. He wauled • to know whether or not she had killed Tracy King—and if so, why. Tlio cab slowed .and came to .a halt. Bannister got'out, paid the river and walked slowly up the teps. For aa instant he had Ision of a Blender, .green-clad Igure silhouetted .against rancc—a figure that drew back 'rom the stormy^ njglit, (hen darted .'Into-It.;. But the. vision was sono almost'as,aulckiy-as -it had Bannister : pullea itho heavy door open and^ stepped He was E DISAPFEAUED.

The only detail tint was unlike a.homo was th» hotel desk at the rear.- A man .ttood there.

Bannister, addressed the clerk^ "Are. you .Mr. Link?" ho asked. "My name Is.Bannister and I've/a note here from Chief Henloy—" A swift changoot expression- was It alarm or something stronger?—came over the clerk's face, "Yes I'm Mr. Link," he admitted. "You sent you?" Eay Chief Henley Bauntster presented the envelope containing the note. U had b*>n tenant, and led'the way to the elevator. Neither spoke during the ascent. Bannister. lliouglit lhat llio uniformed youth-who operated the elevator displayed considerable Interest .as ; they stepped oni on Ihe third floor and that he lingered lo see. .which .direction they would lake. Thenitha sliding door closed and tho- elevator was on Its way. Side by-side the two men moved down-the corridor. Evidently Mr. Link was not overly «i>crienced In-tho ways of police departments and\ detectives. "You're a. special investigator, are you? Mr. Bannister*?" ho asked "Is that why you're here?"
