Some Lessons The flood's accounting will nol all be on (be wrong side of tho lodger if the''lessons taught by tho experience of recent weeks are remembered. Lessoii number one, we believe, is that in a flood or any other serious situation it pays to keep one's shirb'v on. The valley from' Cairo south has .'suffered almost as much from hysterical talk and groundless fears as it has from actual water. Those guilty range all the way from supposedly informed and responsible army and governmental officials to plain folks on the farms ai\d in the streets. Radio and press certainly share in the blame. Lesson number two is that existing local flood prevention and drainage works do not afford adequate protection for parts of our own nnd otliei 1 counties in this region. The prompt carrying out of the government's program for the St. Francis and its tributaries is essential. The obstacle now is the right of way. II should be provided at once. Lesson number three is that while we have a first class system of main line levees protecting us from the Mississippi, they do nol afford certain protection against any possible ffootl. They are successfully carrying the highest water on record. We believe they could carry several i'eet more. It should be kept in mind, however, that; the present flood is coming very largely out of the Ohio river alone. The Missouri has been very low, and the , upper "'Mississippi nofc exceedingly high. What would be the situation if such a ""super flood" on the Ohio _/should be joined at Cairo by other floods from the 'north and west? We •have a very direct interest'in an effective flood control system for the streams which send their water into this valley. But we want reservoirs and other works to liold the water back, not levees on the streams to the north to hasten its progress southward. 'Thumbing' on Way Oat? A feature of American life thai has flourished since a lad first asked for a ride on a hay wagon seems to be on the way out. According to a voter- • an hitch-hiker, wlio has thumbed his way for same 60,000 miles in 41 states, it is growing harrier daily to obtain vides by this method. Speed, he be- lieves, is making hitch-hiking a dying art. ••;..'•' And the Interstate Commerce Cow- mission lias recommended that states enact legislation barring ridc-thiiiub- ers from trucks and other vehicles subject to the Motor Carrier Act, If the wagging thumb and the pleading eye are rendered ineffective, it would seem to be a good thing all around. There would be no more instances in which drivers are robbed, or even slain, by hitch-hikers to whom they were giving riites. And, undoubtedly, more American youths would remain at home. "Ambassadors" . Foreign trade is under suspicion these days, what with neutrality legislation, ami delicate questions of which side is going to use what purchases in what war. That is why it is 'good news to learn that an American truck-builder has just contracted to send 130 heavy trucks to Iran (Persia that used to be) to replace camel trains on an Iranian government transport line between Teheran and the Persian Gulf. And the. scfmc company is sending 36 more such trucks fo Mexico to help build a; government railroad line in Yucatan. Foreign trade like this is the best sort of American ambassador abroad. The purposes of peace are served, friendly neighbors get used to using sturdy, honestly built American equipment, and everybody is the gainer. . If one-tenth of the elaborate machinery, of international relations, the intriguing and scheming for international advantage that takes so much time and money, were applied to ends such as this, the world would be a more peaceable and a better place in which to live. Tt is. a reminder that peace has her victories, no less than war, and they are better, more lasting, and greater victories. SBWSM?

We do not as yet recognize any specific method of inoculation against the common cold. Certain vaccines are". promoted for this purpose,, but they still are considered highly experimental, and are not rccmmended by the majority of doctors. With available methods of prevention,, and with the specific control of infectious diseases that is possible, the prevalence of diseases in the United States is a definite charge against the intelligence of its citizens. America seems to have more than 350,000 cases of measles, 200.COO cases of smallpox, 189,000 Control of ..diphtheria is Jefl- nitely in sight. With development of research and better understanding of these diseases, it is reasonable to predict that the future will see still more of the infectious diseases brought definitely under conlroi.

That conception of disease no tiger prevails. It, Is known now thai n child need not suffer from these infectious diseases, and that it is possible to avoid some of them, particularly if parents co-operate with health departments and physicians in preventive measures The city of Manchester N.'}!., has not had a single r.-ue of diphtheria for five years. It should he possible for every city in Uv United States to achieve a .similar record. During tho first six months of his life, because of bie,m feeding and the immunization received at birth, a child usually has m c re- sislance materials ncccwary to overcome many infections. Moreover, the mtralng infant, breause of his helplessness, fc usually Isolated from contact with many sources of Infection. After the sixth month, however, he Infant stops nursing and be- ins, to . move about more, it Is necessary, then, to give him Ihe advantage of modem preventive methods which Increase his re- sistance lo certain diseases. At the age of 9 months, children may be vaccinated against smallpox. The vaccination usually Is made in the upper part' of the loft arm or on the outer side of the left leg, nljove the knee. It will prevent, smallpox in the vast majority o[ cases. By the twelfth month children should be immunized against, diphtheria. The method now used involves Injection of a substance called diphtheria toxoicl. Tlic doctor usually will inject this Into the loose tissue of ami or leg, or occasionally inlo the back or the abdominal wall. Some physicians u>e two closes; ethers a one dose tox- oict. Usually the child bCRlns to develop immunity immediately after the injection and within four months is protected against diphtheria for some time. Vaccination against diphtheria and smallpox is today an established procedure for all children. When there arc epidemics of scarlet fever in a community or in institutions where there are many children, such children should be vaccinated against this disease. For whooping cough and measles, the methods arc not established and are only when epidemics threaten. ;; • If a child or an adult Is to travel lit foreign countries where Ihe focd nnd water are not so '.veil .vinilatetl as they arc in the Vnitcd States, he is wise to guard MAN TO MAW BY BEARD, I'D FIGHT IHEM TO THE KAF F - KAFF -F^ OF THEIR STAMP HOOT FROM TME 0, 'TIS- BETTEK THAT 1 AW'T AIM'T TELUM'A JO, SOUL7H' TROOT^ IM TH& rAAN WER 1 EXPLAINED, UK1T1L.-TME SKIES BLOW CLEAR—MERELY TELL.
