The Neu) V ardsiick of Social Control In describing tiie aim of the new deal as "a prosperity socially controlled for thd common good," I'resitlenl Koosevelt has handed us a new yard- slick. Extent of the reconstruction which accompanies recovery will depend largely on how much we insist on applying this yardstick to the various measures which come before us for adoption. Those eight words can he just about anything we want them to be. They can be an empty phrase or they can be the bannered slogan for a new order. They can leave us jus', as we were or they can produce the most profound changes. It all depend? on how seriously we care to take them. A nation which was truly determined to control its prosperity for the common good would not have room for a number of the things that this nation has had room for-in the last decade. » » » It scarcely would have room for an Insull, for example. Insnll profiled mightily, built np a great financial empire, tied holding companies together intricately, won fame and power and riches—and left the rest of the country holding the bag. . It would hardly have room for a Wiggin, who contrived to .put his own interests ahead of the ivleresls of'his stockholders: or for ;i Mitchell, who introduced high-pressure salesmanship to the world of banking; or foj' any one of half a dozen other financiers, who easily might be named, who collected enormous sums by peddling worthless bonds to their countrymen. * * T It certainly would have very little room for a system which placed the farmer at the mercy of the money lender, and kept depressiv.g his income at the same time that it boosted the price of his necessities. It might not have much room for an industrial leadership whiel: u-is responsible for some of the- coal-and-iron towns of th° eastern mountains; it is very hard to see how it would tolerate some of the deeds of the coal-and-iron police. Nor, by the same token, would it be able to use a labor leader who has OUT OUR WAY been, graduated to liis jsl> from the ranks of the racketeers. You easily can BO or. for yourself and think of other t)iin«s that hardly would lit in an era of social control for the common good. A:id when you get through, you will realize that thin new yardstick could cause a lot of changes—if il were applied strictly. So the big question now in: How arc we going to use it'.' —Bruce Cutton. | SIDE GLANCES By George Ciarkj Triumph of Sanity . James Joyce's f a m 'i u s novel, "Ulysses," at Inst can l>ft imported legally into the United States. Federal Judge John M. Wiwlffcy rules that, while the .book is uncommonly frank here and there, it-does hot anywhere contain "the leer of a sensualist," and hence is not obscene. The ruling ends ;i l;mi which has existed ever .since "Ulyhsc.s" was published; and it is a ruling which all people interested cither in literature or in freedom of expression are hound to applaud. In any book it is I he spirit and not the letter, thai counts. The wording of "Ulysses" easily may be shocking to a sensitive person, lint no one can fail to see that in spirjt the book is serious, dignified, and completely sincere. Its moral tone is infinitely higher than that of a dozen chc:ip sex thril-, lers that you can find on any drug store book counter. That It is at last to get by the censors car. he regarded only as a triumph for common sense. CHURCH EXCUSES, 9} On. W. BuhMt Dear Aunt: I am glad you lounU Just the presents you want to send your friend? and relatives. You are such o good manager; if Jt was otherwise, you surely would find it expensive tor you have so many relatives and friends. It would not do to send out the things you rer cclved last Christmas to any if your relatives as there Is danger of them recognizing but you'can send them to' friends as you aj- ways take such good care of your presents a year later they look .lust us new us when they were bought, it's Just like ypu to ehoji early and get the pick fit..jte fcw- gain counters.

Ttes CURIOUS WORLD B /,S? iMi^ Slill "Captain of the Men of Death" A Model Salary Act For Counties ' A year ago last month Union county adopted a local salary act Initialed by !ts County Taxpayers' Association. This yenv ihe operation of nil tho. county offices is costing Just v,'hat it cost in 1932 to operate the silt-riffs office alone, according to Neill C. Marsh of El Dorado. The snving Hi admlnlsUativx' expense, about $30.000, Is equivalent lo 1 1-2 mills on the assessed valuation of Ihc county. A Joint committee having Mr. Marsh as its chairnmii and representing tiie Arkansas stale Chamber of Commerce, the 'Various County Taxpayers' Associations and the Ten pie's Conference on Government has, after mouths-of study and conference, drafted a "model sulary ncl" for,, [lie benefit, .of 'j/ajiy,,. couijUes thai may desire^-to Initiate such local legislation next year. We are told that It follows closely the Union county measure, which Hie Arkansas Supreme Court pronounced constitutional. An act which made the operst'on of all county offices cost no more than a single county office lias cost previously certaWy looks like (he sort of model the taxpayers of other counties should be a'ad ,lo set. By ,tliis time the taxpayers of all counties should hire learned that they have got to look to tncnuelvcs and their power of local .initiative to control county administrative expense. They sa.v. what happened to a legislative county salary ret at the 1933 session, when the lobbies of the county officials' associations swarmed U'jwn on ihc stata house. Organized minorities have a great nd- vantaee over the unorganized public In dealing with legislative bodies. Di'.i dynamiting a local initiated act Is n aiflereni proposition. —Ai Kansas Gazette. This is the first of three strides by l)r. Morris Fishbtin on luberculosls and measures taken Lo combat this disease. • * * BY DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN* Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hythe Health Magatlne The year 1930 was one of (he most healthful that the United States ever has had. I Gradually, since the time when the germ conception of disease Cuy c ;n--!tni«i i»»ii flrst »'ns .established, death rates and ihc number of people who are ill have been ^^^^^^ steadily . low- riiKt "•ik.rcui,,!, ered. This gradual •:; improvement in fix: public health, has been marred only by the occasional appearance of an epidemic ol unusual virulence, affecting a vast number of people. Such an epidemic occurred in 1918. when influenza swept the world. Occasionally other epidemics, such as that of encephalitis which occurred recently in St Louis, and the recent epidemic of j ainebic dysentery, arouse consternation. Nevertheless, these epidemics affect hundreds, occasionally a thousand iicople, whereas continually for the Inst century, another disease, tuberculosis, has been taking regularly its toll of childhood and of adult life in this country. When Sir Willain Osier called tuberculosis "Captuin of the Men of Dealh," lie defined liic condition which, while gradually yield- future a lessening of disability and cleulh among ndults. Now. tuberculosis is primarily a disease associated with poverty. Since the time of the ancient Hippocrates, physicians have recognized that some people are particularly of the type likely to get tuberculosis. About one-eighth of the human ace dies of this disease. Since practically all human beings soon: later are exposed to the nalady. a combination of factors seems to be necessary for Infcc- .ion. Dwellers in cities, in dark, close alleys and tenement houses, workers in cellars and ill-ventilated rooms or persons addicted to drink, arc much more prone to the disease than arc those who live a. normal life under generally healthful conditions. ' The problem, then, resolves itself in great part to eradication .'of these causes of the disease.
