So far this year we have been trying to jjet inured to the klea that the things we used to be r sure of in, eco- .noriiics an<J politics , a'ri; only partly •true! *tfow, just to symbolizs the per- "plckity. of the era, comes the report that the"'fast certainty of science likewise has gone by the board.;. _/*' \'IhC; : f.amous ilichelson i;peed-of-light - measurements have been finished at Pasideria, Calif., by two scientists wlio have been' working on thefn since •'Professor Siiehelson's death in 1931; arid : these men hii've made tlie amazing discovery that the speed of light ia not constant, but flucUiates. ..: . -Now the' interesting thing, about ' this is that modern physics has considered the velocity; of li(>U about the only tKing in the universe which never .. -changes. Even. Einstein's ..relativity * : 'lfreory'. assumes that this speed .is a' ..•~i'fa'(!tor. which is absolute. • : But the painstaking experiments ut 'Pasadena have shown variations Tung- 1 '.-': jng through 'a margin of some 12 ' : 'mj(es : a second—and the lone certainly in'.''Tm<idern physics is - a" r 'certainty < no .'-.rrjilost 'of us, of cotirjo, not being ' physicists -im'd neither understanding . nor caring very much about such • things,\will live out our lives quite" un~- worried by this discovery. : ' ; V-f. ^An^yet the'thing has an aptness, a -'peculiar and ironic timeliness, that ". - makes it stand as aii illustration of '.' the perplexities iof our times in all walks of life. . ..._ . • ' • • Ever since the stock market crash of 1929 we have been discovering that most of the old rides mid standards by which we made our society work are not functioning any more. T h e . framework of modern society lias become enormously comnlc^ and involv- "~:ed; and most of our troubles arise from -the fact that we have no blueprints 'showjog us how the thing tan 'be littcd together and made to work smoothly, f.^ trying one stunt, Germany ' another,'England another, and America-still another. All of us are experimenting, and we are doing so,because we have discovered suddenly (hat there are no hard and f«st rules about it. There are no certainties in this modern world—or, if there are, we haven't found them. Now comes (his upsetting of the last scientific constant,' lo complete the story. It is ii filling symbol of an era that hiis to figure everything' out anew. Realizing the Duty to the Public In many ways Uic most hopeful thing about the present moment in American life is the fact that people generally are beginning to see the necessity of adoring a new ethical standard in their dciilinps with one another. This new standard can be expressed very simply. II is the notion that a man's first duty is not to his pocketbook, but tcj the publio :>t large. You can find a direct statement of it in a speech delivered recently, in Chicago by Earle \V. Evans, president of the American Mar Association. ]n this speech Mr.-Evans urged that the lawyers take conceited action to drive crooks &nd shystcrc, out of the ; legal profession. •' • * *" •"Let it bo understood," he declared, . "that our duty is first, k'.st and always the public interest and not to the interests pf the • profession or of the -, lawyer. The-.'public and the newspapers fed that,; we-ought; 'to be-responsible fpr thefcrook's. ;F;d6n't know but what the 'puplic-an'd -the newspapers; are right.-'-"- v ,.. : ' : -i : "Vyho else is'-there 'who can Let's'clean house. t lt is not enough for the ethical lawyer to'be ethical liimself •and close hia eyes to. everything'done bjyj-nis brother. He should.see that the public is protected, and no ties' of kinship or man are more sacred." .. ,> • Not A .Proper Charge On trie Highway Revenues ' '•> j Governor Futroll's call for u six>clal • session of • the legislature to net, on the highway, debt fc- fundiiii-,' matter Includes provision [or: relund- .

OUT OUR WAY , Milk, which. long has been sidcred ..the 'most "nearly perfect food," wll| t become an even better food", through aid of scientific d'c : velopments. : ' As 'X -result, you -may be assured of an'-falmost pc.rfect;dlet for ycHjr chUdien; especially: ior"'lhfant3. i L. • ' Thf ; Opinion bus oeeh ra'tiier gen-' era! that miik is not a good source of 'vitamins. This- probably is due to the fact that it Is deficient especially 'lii Vitamin C, as shown by the necessity of giving infants milk with added orange Juice. A deficiency of Vitamin D in milk is compensated by taking. extra cod liver oil. You should ^member, however, that Vitamin A appears in milk with a remarkable constancy and the cow that is well fed will supply Vilamru A in normal quantity to the milk from -the store ot thai substance in her body even after many months, while she may con- tinne'on a diet that is poor iii Vitamin A. l « • + There is evidence that the body stores, up Vitamin A in considerable amounts when the amount taken in is abundant. It is possible to raise the Vitamin A content of milk by feeding the co-,v with cod liver oil, fresh pasturage or kale. Vitmain B is hot stored" in the body, apparently, to the extent that ent in the milk of cows ill-places- ere. there is^plcnty of siuiliglit. wd^ nJrtliern latitudes anft ir c'itfe, where ,the value of the sunlight' is diminished greatly by smoke, it becomes:necessary tc;-sup- plement the diets. of infants and Jpossibly of- olden ^People .as .-wsji, with extra Vitamin D.
