Ons of the rc- • suits was that their restoration didn't last. One is reminded of this by some of the antics which certain liquor concerns have indulged in since the 18th arpeiidment was repeale.l. For one tiling, retail prices charged for hard liquors have been little less than fantastic. The principle of coU , lecting what the traffic will bear seems to have been followed ovw nrtd over again. A nation which can le-nombci; when ' a quart; of good whisky could be bought for $1.50 now is discovering that it must pay as high as ?6 for the same article. . For another thing, the liquor interests seem to be ready to. plunge back., ijito politics just as they • did 1 before. 1 prohibition. » « • A fair sample is the experience Ohio has been having, '.Ohio's legislature wag c4U«l_into.^ special session to consider liquor r con- trp] laws. The governor mbmitted a plan permitting sales of wine and hard liquor by the glass in hotels, restaurants and clubs, end getting up a- ptate. monopoly to haidle al! retail package, sales. Instantly the liquor lobby got busy. Parties were thrown for legislators. Pressure was applied. The liquor lobby demanded tfijit this bit! be thrown overboard and that licenses to retail packaged liquor be sold to any Tom, Pick .iiid Harry who could raise ?250 for the privilege, » « f The governor had presented a sane and conservative plan hy which the profli. motive could be removed from the retail liquor trade. The liquor lobby, so recently resurrected, insisted that the old set-tin be restored— minus, of course, the open saloon—so th'at the state be dotted with a host "of retailers, each urged by his pocketbook to sell as much boozo as he could, eacli striving to outsell his neighbor. If such tactics are ;i sample of the OUT OUR WAY way the liquor trade Kfiiionlly is going to act, it is evident Hint v|ic tnulu has ie»rp«J nothing by whc.t happened to it in'1919. Prohibition wan iulonled largely because' the li<iuor interests had become too arrogant ami too active in politico; because they hud pi'il Hie lust for profit ahead of every oilier consideration. If they revive tlio*: oil habits, they may tempt a gmt ovmy citinena to reconsider I heir recent «clion in re- the 18th amendment. —Unice Calfeu. The Fight h Off! One-of the best liils of recent news is the fact Hint the iruerillH warfare between Honry Ford and (Jon. Hugh S. Johnson .seems U> have come to an end. Kirst Mr. Ford announced that "we've all got to pilch in mid help the president pull this country out of the hole." Then General Johnson replied that it did his heart good to hear this, adding, "I certainly am going to enjoy seeing Mr. Ford go in there and start pitching." And all this, somehow, sounds moro like it. A lot. was said, not long ngo, about how the NRA chieftain was going to "crack down" on the auto magnate. A regular wharf fight between the government and its most famous industrialist seemed to be In Lhe inaking. Now both sides are talking more softly—and the country at large will rejoice. Mellon Shrewdness Say what you plcnsc about the Mel- Ions of Pittsburgh, they at least seem to Ije who know how to keep their properties from disintegrating in hard times. The late iiichard 13. Mellon leaves an estate estimated at approximately ?200,000,000— and this after four years of -the worst depression the country ever has known! Many a once-proud fortune has shrunk to a fraction of its former size in the last few >vars. Many » man who used to be ruled ;\s a multimillionaire has come down to the "comfortably well off' 1 ojass. Many a loader in linancu or industry has seen his -holdings shrink to a point where tie actually was pressed for cash. But not, apparently, the Mellons. This remarkable family knows how to keep what it gets, in bad times as well as good. SIDE GLANCES By George Clarkl "1 like this chapter where he sees her all dressed up and wants to he her slave."

MORRIS FISHHE1X Kditor, Journal of the American Mcdicul Association, and of lly: gcla, the Health Magazine ' As the. unemployed return lo work, there Is greater liability of industrial accidents. And so II is moro important than ever that you know first, aid in case of ac-. cidental or shock, and make use of It properly when necessary. When a ]H?rson is injured, nearly drowned, or in any other wuy hurt, he may suffer also from shock. In this condition he pale, his pulse feeble, his circilla- llon poor, and his breathing diffi- cull. '• Flrsl, n|d tor a person in shock requires Hint he be placed rial; on his back, with his head low and as comfortable as possible. IP-he U conscious, give him a small nmouul of aromatic spirits of ammonia ns a stimulant. If he is not conscious, a whiff or two of ammonia held under his nostrils may bring about revival. If a person is bleeding freely. Ihe bleeding may be su through application of pressure with a piece ot clean uauze. with a compress or a handkerchief. In a very serious case it may >c necessary to apply a tourniquet. However, this should be done by those who understand how to do II. because many a person has been injured by n louinnciuet rather lhan benefited by ils use. * * « When there Is a severe wound It Is Important to keep yo:ir fingers out of the wound.
