What Service To Whom A cuiioufe proposal is being made. II is that Americans contribute lo i\ Kwlyard Kipling Memorial Fund, which, when it reaches §1,000,000, will erect a statue to Kipling in England, e'ndow a library at an English university, and provide certain traveling fellowships to young men "of the English speaking world.." All this is to be as a memorial to Kipling "ami his service to ; the English-speaking peoples." Now Americans who have read and loved the Jungle Tales, mid Kim, and the Light Tlmt Failed, might forget Kipling's freely-expressed contempt for Americans in a -generous wish to honor Kipling, the au'thor. But to honor Kipling's "service to the English-speaking peoples" is another matter. Before Americans honor any such services of Kipling U> the English- speaking peoples who happen to live in North America, it would he an idea to have somebody, tell jusi what they were. ' Besides, Kipling birnseif denied that, Americans speak a language that was more than barely recognizable^ to him as English. Driving Out Tuberculosis Seventy thousand persons tlio in Ihc United States each year front tuberculosis, although the number is. du- creasing laigcly ^hroijg^.lhc of the National TiiberGfilosi^i AsjsociKtlo'u. The association's'"jtiiiitia'l Early: : D'i- agnosis Campaign will be concluded this year m April, the llth stich campaign in the United States. The drives are 1 started for the purpose of. uncovering new and unrealized eases of tuberculosis, and to encourage treatment of tasea already known. By bringing the disease forcibly to the attention of the nation, the asso- c'iatiori has dorfe much to prevent infectious spread, to place sufferers where -they may be cared for, and to. uncover incipient cases before they are actually iiito the illness state. All the association asks is thai if ypii have any of the lubemilonis symptoms—-tiredness, loss of strength and weight, a pain in the chest, continual coughing—you be examined " carefully. A simple remiesl and a life saver. ' 9TJTOUHWAY it Did Happen Here |siDE 9LANCES By George Clark When the.moon turns green, when Hitler joins |ho IViiai B'rith, when Herbert Hoover starts urging a third term for Roosevelt, when the national debt is paid to the last cent, nnd when'your golden hair is turned to silver gray, llic'n you might expect to see a commercial linn 'hauled before a govern- ment'bureau for allegedly unfair trade practices, and then praise the fairness of that bureau's proceedings. Jitit it happened the other clay. A New York linn ordered by the Federal Trade Commission lo "cease and desist" from allegedly taking certfiin brokerage commissions in violation of the Hobinson-Patmah Act, took occasion to express its "high appreciation" of the fairness shown by the commission. To save time and expense, the commission had agreed to apply to this cane the testimony in another which was exactly similar. Can thi.s be a portent? Are we coming to a lime when a government commission and a business firm can deal with each other jnst as any two business firms would do? If so, the millennium must be just around the corner.
