In (he days back before the World War, the drys were certain Llial na- lioiial prohibilion would solve the problem once and for all. And after 10 years of that, cvcu a great many ardent di-ys were convinced (hat (he lin- nl answer had nol been found. In 103'), wets were jubilant, and gave assurance that under proper lu- gal restriction all would be well, and the problem would be settled forever. Now, already, only live years lidcr, we face a reviving prohibition '"movement on a national basis, together with a gradual legal drying up of local areas. Certainly we ought to have learned by now that no single stroke, no single law, no single plan i.s going to solve forever a human problem (hat has been with us at least since the days of Noah. Constant ami temperate application of all we can learn by experience, the broadest education of Ihe individual, gradual yet persistent efforts to temper and control Ihe worst phases of the problem as they arise—these ofl'er a better hope for the future than any dogmatic "one-shot" Koltilion offered by (he extremists of either persuasion. •I'm not a poor hiltcr, and I'm not n i-real hitter, but 1 nm n fair bitter, „,„! 1 (ell" yon tiic truth he threw balls past me l never even saw.-Gerald Walker. who Hailed .335 chains 1031, spcaMng of Bob Feller. FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, l{ Tlia tturden Of Sickness If there ever was any question (hat the health of the people i.s a matter of public concern, it has been forever .settled by Ihe National Health Survey, being completed by Wl'A workers as the most comprehensive study of its kind over made. On any average winter day, the survey showed, 0,000,000 men, women, and children arc unable to work, go to school, or go about their ordinary business, because of illness or accident. That is almost one person in 20. l.e.s.s than ii.'ilf of lliese arc suffering from chronic disease, and at least 1,50(1,0(10 of Iliem have been laid low by common inlhien/ii, grippe, cold, and tojisilitis. The Public Health .Service concludes that at least 1,200,000,000 days are lust from work in homes, factories, and schools every year of illnesses which disable for :i \veok or more. The total economic loss each year is beyond calculation. Think what it would mean if Ihe common cold could be as effectively banished as smallpox! Tot whal would we do with 1,260,000,000 work days suddenly adtled to national productionV We cannot, al this moment, buy and consume even the production which can be turned out today, even with all these losses through illness. Is it possible lhal Ihe world is «o topsy-lurvy lhal it is actually a "good" thing lhal all people should 1«; .side? War Waifs One of the most heart-rending as- pecls of the long and bloody Spanish civil war has been the fate of little children. One observer estimates that more than 900,000 have been made helpless and homeless during the lighting. The plight of all war refugees is sad enough, but what of these wail's— nearly a million of them—\vh« now are without food, homes, friends or adequate clothing? How can the Spanish nation, regardless of which side wins, ever hope to rear these children into useful, happy men and women? Compared wilh disaster such as this, even the Texas school explosion, re- stilting in more than '100 deaths, pales into relative inconsequence. Goodby, Buffalo! Another old-friend is leaving us—the bull'alo nickel. He i.s 25 years old, with his well- worn design of an Indian head on one side and a bison on Ihe'other. The law permits changing coins every 25 years, and so, just for variety or something, we will have a new kind of nickel this spring, with .IcIVcrson on one side and his old home, Jlonlicello, on the oilier. The design will be different, but the contra! problem will be the same, whether it is the bulfalo or (lie ,lef- ferson nickel—how to gel more of them.
