Mrs. pcvereaux Is the former Miss Doris Anderson of Blylhe- ville.: .. BY DR. THOMAS D. MASTERS Written; tot NEA People sometimes learn to lake their-own pulse—and, In so doing, frequently ,become needlessly disturbed over' the variations In pulse rate Hint they find. Lacking n fuller background of information about the subject of pulse rate, they are likely lo misinterpret tlie readings and give these changes undue emphasis In their thinking. ie pulse Is a figure that expresses the number of times the heart beats a minute; Tho heart Is In. the ' simplest terms, a hollow muscle, which contracts ihythml- cally,,6eiicllng the blood to all, parts of the 'body along an arterial elf- cull. , The contraction can be observed as a wave : In the artrles, which conduct fresh blood away from the heart. With the veins serving to conduct the blold back to the heart, the simulation of the blood considerably resembles the oil system of a finely rcqulated machine. RATE VARIES WIDELY Even recently, the widely varying pulse rate' among normal young men has not been .sufficiency recognized. Tlie average pulse-rate at rest Is about 05 or 70 times a mln- te, swinging normally between a ow of 45 and a high of 105. Physical activity greatly concll- ions this group of figures. So do a lumber of olher factors, such as ge, Illness ,and the kind of dispo- ttlon the individual person ma> lossess. Furthermore, women teml 0 run a slightly faster pulse rale han men. If one lies down, for example, he average pulse hate Is GO, with 1 low of 40 nnd n high of 100.. U ic sits, the average Is 15, the low 48, and the high 105. In a sland- Oerrnany's latest twin - engine fighter hiis an increased armament and bomb' load Instead of top si>eed and cliiivb. t ng position 1 the average Is 82, the ow 64, and the high up to 124. \ny muscular exertion increases the lumber of times the heart beat*, iust as stepping on the gas Increases the strokes made by the listen In an automobile. Emotion factors can be of astonishing Influence over the pulse rate. Anger and fear can run up the number of beats as specdllly as running a physical race. An argu- iient about politics, a religious conflict, or the emotion of love Itself can be serious excitants to a pulse rate. The person who files Into ton- turns at tlie drop of. a hat nearly- always has a i higher pulse rat« than Ihe fellow who takes life somewhat more phlcginntlcally. Actually, these differences' have nothing to do with the essential health of the ]>eoplc Involved. NO UK At, HKMini INDICATOR There seems-to be no satisfactory relationship between the basic pulse rate and physical 'fitness to do work, If the former Is taken while the Individual sits. There k n relationship, however, between the .capacity for work and the rale of the recovery ot the pulse after exercise. The greatest variations In pulse rates are likely to occur In persons" unused to exercise, but even highly trained athletes occasionally have pulse rates exceeding the norm By and large,, le pulse rates of normal, healthy young people vary greatly from the accepted norms— and the person \vho Is constantly taking ills .pulse and predicting heart failure for himself beca\tse he finds his-pulse rate .slightly above or below the single figure Hint he thinks Is nonnnl must realize that the rate alone may have no significance.

BY PETER KDSON Courier Nfws Washington Correspondent Newest problem developing on he manpower front Is a wartime abor migration which Industrial nanagement Is not yet able to ful- y explain, its manifestations are rapid turnover In the labor force, with a high quit rate, terminations of employment often exceeding lew Wrings. This new labor migration In the tildst of a wartime boom ot pros- »rlty has been developing gradua- ion Is no longer news. But the 'list complete roundup ot the problem has just been brought back to Washington by Lawrence A. Ap)ley, executive director of the War Manpower Commission, following a swing around the country to get first-hand Information on today's manpower situation. The problem is according to Mr. Applcy, most In evidence In the Pacific coast region, where another "spirit of the guld rush days" is leading many war workers to pull up stakes and move- on to some other claim where they hear the diggings may be belter. One shipyard on the west coast reported that of 20,000 workers hired, only 5000 stuck on the job fi'om Ihe time they were hired to date. Another yard wllh a labor force of 30,1)00 lias a r&ord of 250,000 hiring* to keep the force Intact at the 30,000 figure. NOT HOUSING, TRANSPORT Oil WAGES Exit Interviews are now conducted by personnel directors and employment ment lo find the reasons behind a workman's giving notice that he Intends to quit, but so far they have not revealed any deep underlying motives for this laboi unrest. In most histances, the conventional causes of quilting are found not to exist. Housing problems in most, of the established yards are now licked. Transportation — the problem of getting to and from work—may have been solved by the construction of new travel facilities such as special bus lines or through shuttle trains loading and unload- in gon • special sidings, conveniently located. They won't le used to capacity, men preferring to crowd six or more In a passenger car to creep over corrugated highways in rush hours. Working conditions and wages JOB FKECZIN'G ,'HKC'KS AI1GKATION Within local war production ircas where employment conditions e been established, there are certain restrictions on the move- nenl of labor. A workman can't itilt one Job to take a similar Job n a nearby war plant unless he gets a release trom the first employer. That's to prevent pirating and job-shopping by workers for higher pay. These controls apply locally, however, and Is not regionally. They would apply, for instance, In San Diego or San Francisco areas. They would not apply regionally, however, as In the entire five-state Pacific Coast region. The administrative problem ahead for war industry management and labor therefore becomes one ot checking this new kind of liilgra- tory movement by region's. Restrictions of the local area War Man- |»wer Commission stabilization agreements may have been winked at a certain extent, If a workman from one area showed up In another area where there was a labor shortage. A tightening up on these voluntary restrictions can do much to check further development ot this migratory movement, It is believed. Biggest contribution to licking the problem can probably be made by securing the co-oiieration of war workers themselves In taking one war job and sticking to it. The alternative might be something like a national service bill, which laboi doesn't want, but which Ls now before Congress, anyhow. Jobs now aren't "frozen" though that word Is loosely used to designate voluntary employment stabilization agreements. A national service law would actually freeze jobs, but the effort will be made to continue present voluntary practices, without compulslo.n Concern About Morals Should Begin At Home Miss Donna Wimderlleh, daughter f Mr. and Mrs. W.

In spite of nil this, when the urge lo move hits a migrant worker, nothing on earth seems able to hold Jiim on his job, and he ups and gits. One phase of tills wartime 'turnover of workers is the development of an out-migration of considerable proportions. People who rushed to the west coast to get jobs in the airplants and tlie shipyards have grown restless nnd gone back home labor shortages and increasing employment have developed in the >laces the}' came from. Another phase is pure restless- less or wanderlust.

Pinkham'a Vegetable Compound. This famous liquid not only helps relieve monthly pain but also accompanying tired, weak, nervous feelings of this nature. This.

They are doing omethlng new and exciting, and it Is sitting around doing what le lias always done, and so she just plain jealous. Or perhaps Mrs. Smith's hus- and is In service and she can't e near him. If she is the type •ho spends her life wondering ;hat he Is up to, she Is almost ure to be suspicious of the wom- n who work with him. She falls aiily for any talk about uniform- d women, and enjoys repeating It. No one Is naive enough to suppose that every girl In military ervlce has high standards. There re too many girls from too many ypes of environment to make any uch th|ng- possible. BETTER THAN MOST But they are a superior lot, and s a group they are probably as well-behaved as any group of young 'omen in the country. The big mortality problem today sn't a problem concerned with vqmen In service—but with scat- er-bralned high school girls who re crazy over uniforms, and hang around on street corners waiting o be picked up. Let's worry about them and let he women in uniform look after hemselves. They are old enough o. And they are doing an important enough job so that (hey should- I't be hampered by a lot of ugly, naliclous gossip. They deserve praise—not a slap n the face.
