They are gathering here in the niinnnl stnlo convciiLion of the United Diiugliloi'.s of llio Confederacy, an organization dedieiitod to keeping alive ideals which, while they had their inception in another era, are none the less needed today. The meeting should he the occasion for sober thought. Lip service to the memory of dead heroes comes eiisy but avails little. Not glory for themselves i)iiI !i bettor future for the people they loved inspired the sacrifices of those who led the Southern cause. Heal honor to thoir memories demands intelligent and persistent effort toward [lie goal they -soujflif, Historians today agree thai however much political and social causes may have contributed to the estrangement between the North.and the'South that culminated in war in the sixlies, the real cause was economic. The political breach has been healed. Slavery is dead. But the agricultural South still suffers under artificially created economic disadvantages as burdensome as ever. Hope of relief .seems nearer today than for generations. Leaders of thought in other parts of the country arc coming to the beliefi that trade jjar- ric'rs whiety are particukirly, .bmklen- somc upon the South arc also harmful to the country as a whole.. But the South,.so far, has appeared asleep to its opportunity. Instead of united demand for lliat relief which would assure the cotton states the prosperity their resources : make naturally theirs we find southern senators and congress' men inclined to seek little temiforary advantages while ignoring the fundamental issue. Where i s the courage- oils spirit and flic tenacity of purpose that characterized the leadership of this section in former davs? • Let the Dead Be! The California scientist who restored dead dogs to something resembling normal life created a sensation when he asked permission to experiment on UUTOUITWAY restoring life to the bodies of executed criminals. That scn«stioii, however, it) mild compared to the oho created by the 72-year-old ex-policeman who volunteered to let (119 scientist put him to death and experiment on him to his heart's content. This volunteer is Daniel Wooloy. He saya, "There's nothing more for mo la life—why shouldn't I do something for humanity now?" The scientist has had to decline the offer, of course. But. it is an odd thing that the creepy feclinjf which the whole proposition gives most of us comes from the second part of the proposed experiment rather than from the lirst. To put n man to death—that is a commonplace. It is this plan to restore life to the temple from which it has fled that plays tricks up and down our spines. We have an illogical but instinctive dread of seeing the thing attempted.

Whereas tlie average human being needs little additional viliiinin D after he has once grown lo adulthood, there seems to lie evidence that women who arc in tlie period previous to giving birth to a ' child have a derangement of the calcium absorption in their bodies.
