Proves Security, Liberty Are Compatible It isn't iihvjiys easy to rc historic process when you nro in puddle of it. For that reason wo liuvo been slow to t>ee tho tremendous importance of our current struggle to regain prosperity, and iron out the bumps in our economic life, President Roosevelt touched on this point in his message to Congress. T)ic econpmic breakdown, ho remarked^ had led many Americans to doubl "trie successful adaptation of our historic traditions to tho complex modern world." This, lie added, waa-in itse)f ft challenge to our form of governlnont. • "Ours was the task," Jio added, "Lo prove that democracy could. be miido to function in the work] of today as effectively as in the simpler world of 100'j'curs ago. Ours was the task to do 'more than to argruo n theory."Any American can have his own opinion, of Course, as to whether the administration has performed that task well or poorly. The point to remember is that all-one troubles of tlie last six or seven years simply add up to a great, crucial tost of democracy and freedom. In some countries overseas, \vhcrc - democracy -was of recent and uncci>> tail) growth, that test came out' disastrously. Basel by jlrouhjes they coujd not solve, the people turned 'entirely away from democracy, dccjd- I ed that freedom was a poor thing if ' starvation went "with il, -ajull culled ~ on the dictators to take 'things in ' charge. The dictators were no more able to get at the roots of theso troubles 'than weie tlie liberal governments ',-they destroyed. They didn't fry to. , They merely put their heads down -and tried to butt their way through; and, in doing so, they turned the clock back some centuries. -For in this era of dictatorships there has been a return to nn out..worn idea of human society— the idea that the common 'man exists for the state, rather than that the state ex' ists for tlie common man. Under this idea the state is not required, to remove troubles from the common man's path; the common man is required to accept those troubles— to take it and like it, r. 3 they say— for the sake of the state. It was up to the United States to prove that sort of thing was unneces- sary »nd a mistake, There was just one way the United States could do it: by proving in actual exp«rje)ico that a democracy co'Jld solve these prob- letoia without becoming something other than a democracy, To dale that job has been pretty well done, This may have been due to the wisdom of the government, ov it may have been due to natural forces operating Independently O f ^,o government; For the moment it makes little difference. The point is that democracy has been justified, The world has been shown that It is not necessary to sacrilica liberty for security, MONDAY,' JANUARY ii, Talks Turned For years John Bull has ;jee)i holding his ribs and roaring lustily at America's flagpole sillers, marathon danceis, rabble rousers, and comi? congressmen. Hut recently Uncle Sam began to snicker at the sight of an august British pre'micr scurrying about London trying to circumvent Cupid and prevent his king from marrying a divorcee, And Undo, Sam's chuckles are • beginning to turn into loud guffaws' at the plight of another hallowed .English institution. Famed .Scotland Yard, one of tlie world's greatest police" or- gani/.atioiif), is revealed to have been tormented for years by a lone burglar, one "Flannel Foot," who HOD only has had perfect freedom in carrying out Ills thefts, but frequently telephones police to tell them lie is going on a holiday. It is icfresiling, though decidedly unusual, to sue John Bull stumbling nboi(t,lha slngo, while Uncle Sam rolls in '.the- aisle.

MORRIS FISHBEIN Eilitor, Journal of the aicdkal Association,: 1 and of Hy- gcia, the I^altli-BIagnilne The bjood of man normally contains from 4,900,000 to 6,000,000 red p.lood cells [iii cacli cubic .millimeter. The blood of • wpmnn c'bn- Inl us 4,400,0 00 - to 5,3 50,000 I n - each cubic millimeter. The body of a woman .is smaller nixl obvioiuslyi demands fewer.'red cells In the^ circulation than does the body of a man Ench: red blood cell is only 0.0003 Inch In diameter. These cells grow In the bone nianow, especially In ire ribs, the backbones, and the flat bones In babies, iKmcier, lh£ marrow of''all the bones takes-'part In building blood. After the blood cells Imve been developed, they go from th'c'.'bonc marrow into the blood stream fca- Ing picked up by tho veins, and tnon are carried to the'lungs, Where they take up oxygen.'- The °Wgeri ts carried by tlm r^ coloring matter of the cells called hemoglobin. Hemoglobin Is a complex • substance which contains some iron. If the number of red blood cor^ piiscles falls belou tioimal or If the amount of hemoglobin in IHe blood corpuscles Is deficient, the person has anemia. • » • No»ada>s examination ot the Wood Is considered a vital Mit of any complete physical examination Tlio doctor punctures the e,ir or a linger Up and withdraws a very small amount of blood, usually he will take a little more than a drop for each of several pipettes or tiny calibrated tubes,, which are used.for measuring and counting .the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and blood plat. Ids. He also will spread some of the blood on a slide; the blocd Is then stained .so that he may determine the different varieties of white blood cells and the relative number of each variety. He nlso may mix a very small amount of blood with other fluids to determine the, total amount of ;hcmpglobln. or rod coloring matter, The amount of hemoglobin is Estimated by comparing the color of the patient's blood, when mixed with'..add,, with that of various standard solutions or with tha color of a piece of paper or glass which also is standard. There also are electrical devices with which It is possible to estimate much more, accurately the exact amount of hemoglobin by weight in a certain quantity of blood. • * • Whenever any of these melton's Is used, the doctor Is ab|e to say that the blood Is 80 per' cent'nor- mal, Or 60, or whatever the case may • be. .Very small differences— for example, from 70 to 15 per cent, or from 80 to 90—are not significant. The red coloring matter In tlie blood of a normal man varies from 13.0 to 18.7 grams for every 100. cubic centimeters of blood Thai In the blood of a woman varies from 12 grams to 16.0 grams per 100 cubic centimeters. Tints, 16 granis of: hemoglobin for 100 cubic centimeters of blood Is the equivalent of what used to be called 100 per-cent.

NOW CO O.V WITH THE CHAPTER XXIII TJOB disregarded Belly's advice to save his matches and drew a cigaret lighter from his pocket. He lighted it and the tiny flame showed the relief and hope in the girl's face, as she smiled up at him. For a moment he forgot everything else, as lie drew her to him. Then the f;ict that they were in an. underground prison, being held there for some mysterious reason, came back with crushing force. Bob got to his feet and, with Belly's aid, hobbled painfully about the small room they were in. Tho only exi! scemec) to he a low tunnel, barely high enough for a man lo crawl through. While she held the light, he started into (he little tunnel which, almost at once, began to pitch sharply downward, He struck a match to sec where he was going. ... "I'm coming,- too,. Bob," Betty said, behind him. "I'd'; go any place rather than stay ajone again. Hero's the lighter, It seems to have gone out'. Maybe you can fix it." ;:/. , . • But the lighter.' evidently had exhausted its .fupj.yfor. repealed snapping of flie'.'flint "brought no results, ?. f- • • '• "Six matches left," Bob nounccd. "Are you game to go on? There must be some end to this," Several minutes of carefully feeling their way along the musty tunnel, a distinctly fresher current of air came to them from beyond Bob struck one of: the precious matches and peered ahead, * » » SUDDENLY lie stopped, drawing her close to him, and whispered, "A light! I just saw it. You'd better stay here while I do some scouting. No use telling the world where we are. If they're after us, let's let 'em worry a while." Belly agreed and Bob, crept away. She waited a minute, straining her eyes into the dnrk- ness, then decided that anything would be belter than being trapped in this stilling place and rapidly followed him, a feeling o£ panic gripping her. Now she could hear footsleps. The next minute she collided with Bob's heels. "I—I had to conic • on," she breathed, as ho twisted around. His fingers on her lips was his only response, and Betty realized that they had come to an opening info a large rooin of'.some sort, a room''that ' could be glimpsed faintly by the light from a single candle above.their heads. A man was kneeling nn the floor of the room, his hands moving rapidly as though he were uncovering something. Suddenly their attentjon was caught by a" sound from the opposite side. Soiijeone cjse was coming into the room. Betty gave a little gasp as the second rpan tensed, then sprang like.a .mountain lion on its prey. Tho next instant everything was confusion. A kaleidoscopic whirl Of thrashing arms and legs flashed before tlie girl's restricted view. Clouds of dust rose from the loose dirt and Betty smothered .a sneeze, as Bob dvew back, whispering close to her ear, "I'm going out there to help lick de Forest. If we can get him down, we'll get out. Slay here till I come back, llere are the matches." : ..-•.*:** TJEFORE she conld reply, he , thrust them Into her band, pulled himself from, the tunnel and swayed to. his feet. Betty edged up into his place so that she could see what was going on. \Vas it the Indian 'guard who was lighting with tie Fiirest on ' the floor? '-"' ;' : Betty turned away with a shudder. It was primitive, brutal. She had never supposed men co. fight with sitcli animal feroc Then, at a movement from B she leaned forward again to what was happening. Both fighters were on their feet n as though an umpire had int, vened, and were circling rou and round, waiting for mi OIK ing. The Indian was facing h but the other man's back was ward her. As she watched i •andle was knocked from place on a shelf on one wall, a went out . The darkness that gripped t place made the mad struggle the more horrible, and Boh, w Ins injured leg, was out there, t At any minute they might t, him.

(To Be Continued) Church Music Iii Step With times Urged FORT WORTH, Tex/(UP)—Music for worship in: 1037- should equal the streamlined trend ot the day, delegates to. the southwest' Baptist Church Music Conference decided. Such music should not be of the "recreational" variety, but melodies of reverence, declared George W. Card of Nashville, Term., director of music pubuicatlons for the Baptist Sunday School Board. "Illogical selection", of music for USE in church was scored by card. He outlined three classes of music as follows: 1. Heart, or worship. 2. Head, or educational. .3. "Hoof," or recreational. All three had a'place in church activities, he said. The first should bo used for formal worship programs, the second for concerts and the third for social programs' "It Is a travesty to develop ministers to a high point and have a knock-down, drag-out, whoop-'er- up musical program," added I. E. Reynold, of Fort Worth,-conference president. Monument Erected To Memory of Leg MENOMONBB, W's. (UP) ^- In the weeds, and tjiigkel of an mi- kept corner of St. Paul's cemetery near here lies a glistening white monument to the memory of a leg. Tlie story of the tombstone and (lie leg "decently buried" there is told by John Loeiv, a retired fann- er. About 18CO, when IXMJW \va_s a boy.' George Krauder, a nsighbor, suffered, an ankle injury. A malignant tumor developed, and Kraii- der was forced to have his leg" amputated. Krauder gave his dlsmembersci leg a fitting burial and marked the grave with a rnarble si ill) 18 by 10 inches Inscribed — "fJis^-Q e o r g e Krauder."
