Proves Security, Liberty Are Compatible It isn't always easy to recognize a historic process wlien you tiro in the middle of it, For Ilia.I reason wo have been slow to see tho tremendous importance of our current slrtifglc to regain prospeiity, and iion out the bumps in our economic life President KoosevelL touched on (.his point in his message to Congress. The ecQjiohiic breakdown, be remarked,- had led ninny Americans tp doubt "th'e successful adaptation of our historic traditions to the complex modern '"world." This, he added,-wns-in itBeH' a challenge to oirr form 6f government. "Ours was tho task," he added, "to . prove that democracy could ho made to function in tho world of today as effectively as in the simpler world of 100 years ngo. Ours was. the task to do more than to argt|e a theory.''• . -Any A'meriean 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 our troubles of the last six or seven years simply add up to •<!, great, crucial test of democracy and freedom. „ In some countries overseas, whcro democracy was of recent and uncor- , tain growth, thai test crime out'dis- . aslrou^ly. Beset 'by (troulijtes they could 'not solve, the people turned . entirely away from democracy, dccid- that freedom was a poor thing if starvation went with ^ 11, -and; called on the dictators to take ''things in charge. The dictators were no more able to get at the roots of these troubles' , than were the liberal governments they-destroyed. They didn't try to. -^Thoy merely put their heads down ' • and tried to butt their way through; - and, in doing so, they tinned the clock back some centuries. " For in this era of dictatorships there has lieen a return to an outworn idea of human society—tho idea that the common 'man exists for the state, rather than that the state ex- ists for the common, man. Under this, idea the state is not required- to remove troubles fro'ni the - common Iran's path; the common man is required to accept those troubles^ to take it and like it, as they say— for the sake of the state. " It was up to the United Slates to prove that sort of thing was unneccs- sary and a mistake, There was one way the United States could do It: by proving in actual experience that ri democracy wnld solve these prob- le'ms without becoming something other than a democracy, To date that'job has • been, pvetty well done, This may have been due to the wisdom of the government, or it may Jiave boon due to natural forces operating Independently of the government. For the moment H makes little difference. : The point is that democracy has been justified. The world lw been shown that It is not necessary to sacrifice libel ly for security, SIDE GLANCES By; George- Clark Tables Turned For years John Bull has ijepn holding his ribs and lowing lustily at America's flagpole sillers, marathon dancers, rabble rotisers, and comic congressmen.

(To He Continued) The FamiSf Doctor Blood of Woman Gonlains Fewer ' Red Cells'Than Does That of Man Church Music In Step With Times Urged FORT WORTH, Tex. (UP)—Music for worship in 1937 should equal the streamlined trend of the clay, delegates to the southwest Baptist Cmirch Music Conference decided. Such music should not be of the "recreational" variety, but melodies of reverence, declared George \V. Card o[ Nashville, Tenn., direc- lor of music pubuications for the Baptist Sunday School Board. "Illogical selection" of music for use in church was scored by Card He outlined three classes of musii 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 shouK be used for formal worship pro grams, the second for • concert, and the third for social programs "It Is a travesty to develop.min up musical program/' added I. E.

(UP) ^- In ,hc weeds and 'thicket of an un- kept corner of St. Etui's cemetery near here lies a glistening white monument to the memory of a leg. The story of the tombstone and the leg "decently buried" there is told by Jolin I/> e w, a retired farmer. ' ' ' About 1BOP, when JjOew was a boyi George Krauder, a neighbor, suflered. an ankle injury. ,\ malignant tumor developed, and Kraur dcr was forced to have his leg amputated.

He also will spread some of the Wood on a slide; the blood is then slaliicd so that he may determine the different varieties of white blood cells nnd the relative number of each variety. ..He also may mix a very small amount of blood with oilier fluids to determine the •. total amount of hemoglobin, or red coloring matter. The iinictint of hemoglobin Is estimated by comparing the color ;of the patient's bjopd. when mixed with acid, with that of various standard solutions or with the 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 ac-. curatcly the exact amount of hemoglobin by weight In a certain quantity'of'blood.

Very small differences—| for example, from 70 to 75 [Mr cent, or: from: 80 to 00—arc not significant. The red coloring matter In the blood of a normal mart varies from 13.0 to 18.7 grams for ever}' 100 cubic centimeters of blood. That In the Wood of a woman varies from 12 grams to 1G.G grams per 100 cubic centimeters. Thus, 1C grams of hemoglobin for 100 cubic centimeters of blood is the equivalent of what used to be called 100 percent.
