The Cowls and Democracy The experience of u number of European nations, nolnbly Italy ami Germany, would seem to indicate that when a democratic government fails to function effectively it is likely to lie succeeded by dictatorship. President Roosevelt has been accused of seeking dictatorial powers. There is better reason for belief that he is actually trying to maintain and perpetuate democratic institutions by stream-lining them to meet changing needs. The president was elected in i!)S2 with a mandate to do something about, the perilous situation in which the nation found itself at that time. His re-election in 193G, by an • increased majority, cannot be interpreted other than as a mandate to go ahead with his program. He lias accomplished a great deal but many of his measures, including some of vital importance, have been outlawed iii the courts and others are threatened with the same fate. The popular will, as expressed by « congress and executive—elioscn by vote 1 of the people, was blocked by men holding office for life under appointment by presidents long'dead and accountable for their acts to no one under -heaven. The president ha:l his choice of three courses, lie could abandon his pi'ogriVm, risking development of a situation which -might lead to public - 1 '? demand for revolutionary and unconstitutional action; he, to (he slow process of 'constitutional . 1 .amenrfmenl;_hc could seek more'liberal interpretation of tlic constitution. - The choice, according to information from Washington, was made between' the two latter alternatives. The president reached the conclusion that it was not the constitution but a too rigid and hair-splitting interpretation of it lhat was blocking his program. Evidence that this conclusion was not arrived at arbitrarily i s certainly found in the 1 fact that a number of the most distinguislied members of the court have found most of tho major New Deal measures constitutional. The president has declared that his purpose is to find solution, within the framework of the constitution, for the great problems facing the country. He has determined flmt the obstacle to necessary legislation is not the constitution but its interpretation by men who, in many cases at least, lost, all elasticity of mind long before the problems now troubling the nation developed. He is not seeking subservient judges to do his bidding but rather men who will be less ready than some of the present judges have been to reject new measures, made necessary by new condition*, simply because they are new. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1931 Toward Security Many people have feared that because the government has • begun a social security program, private insurance companies would suffer. People will say "let the government," such rcasoncrs maintain. Well, the social .security act has been in sight and preparing to go into operation all through IMG, and— The Metropolitan Ufc Insurance Co. closed the year with more life insurance in force than ever before, more than 21 billions of it. And 28,400,000 people were holding the '12,990,980 policies. That's usually the way. Government insurance during the World War simply introduced the idea to thousands who never thought of it before. Government sale of Liberty Homls made potential security customers of millions. Government sale in the TV A of cheap electrical equipment caused a big jump in sale of both power and equipment by private companies. So it may prove with social security. Millions who never thought much about it before now are thinking. And •millions not covered, or inadequately covered by the program as it stands, will be reaching out for means to protect themselves further. The government :prograni may well prove not, a competitor, but an educator and a stimulus. •Lone experience lias caused me to come to the conclusion that HID economic crises of the world which como from lime to lime are the result of political notion. —Sir George Paish, British economist. t '* * *'•.•' We want ail Increased output or Booils, but not nn unbalanced output. —Secretary of Agriculture Wallace. •' . • * ; . * T Now I'm hero and- I'm not leaving until I gel an answer. —Harold Hitlen, who was on « love'sltdovvn strike in iiis girl friend's apartment at Excelsior Sidings, Mo. 1 . * * * The depression has sped up the creative impulse of the nation.

D-l-37 MRS. JOCELYN: Nil, as far as is known at the moment. COUNT POSODINI: Nil, as : far as is known at the moment, but the count is now identified as the ox-convict "Slick" Daniels, so I hope to lie able to, make him tail: as there must be some special reason for Reginald Jocelyn having asked htm on board, when lie was quite unknown to any other mem bcr of the party. MR. ROCKSAVAGE: Stron. motive to do away with Blanc, a pointed out in previous analysis This becoming oven stronger 01 confirmation of the precariou situation of his companies. THE BISHOP OF BUDE: Ni as far as is known at the mo mcnt, hut his possession of a lei ter from Blanc mailed from Ne York on the 5th shows his ac quaintance with the murdered man to be far stronger than ho would have us believe in his first statement. This letter lays such stress upon the friendship existing between the two that it reads to me much more like a threat by Blanc that, whatever might occur on flic yacht, the Bishop had better keep his mouth shut. This is supported by the suggestion in the cable from Scotland Yard that there was Fome unpleasant scandal in which the Bishop was involved in 1017. By Dlt. MOKKIS I'lSlIHElX ] Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, ami of Hyceia, the Health Mazarine It is not safe lo gamble on the possibility lhat a throat infection which looks like diphtheria is real- not diphtheria, but something else. If your child complains 01 sickness, particularly of a sore throat, and if there is any possibility that he has been c^xjsed to diphtheria, a culture should be taken and the material examined immediately. , A doctor should bo Mimmoncd instantly if your child appears to have swelling of the neck or any croUpy condition with hoarseness. Eighty-nvc per cent of ilic deaths Irom diphtheria occur In youngsters umler 5 years of ,vje. In such children particularly, therefore, recognition of diphtheria at tlic earliest possible moment is Important. In preventing diphtheria, the: most significant factors are the use! of the Schick test and ot niphlho- ria toxoid. During the iiiv;l si: months of life, many L-hilclivn arc protected from diphtheria by ma- ADY WELTER: Motive in her 1 case, which was weak in our rst analysis, • is considerably Lrengtliencd by the cable from eotland Yard, in which it ap- ears that she has been cxpcnd- ng a portion of her fortune for umcrous years in supporting a on-commercial group of papers, urther, that she lost a consider- jle portion of her capital in the lalry crash, and is now pvin- ipally dependent upon her hold- igs iii the Rocksavage com- anies. MR. HAYASIII: Nil, as far as s known at the moment, but the let that he wrote to Blanc, ask- 1K for an appointment, brings im much more strongly under uspicion. If it can be proved hat he visited Blane's cabin be- ween 7:45 and 8:15, when he ap- icored in the lounge, it will look cry much as though he is our nan. MK. JOCELYN: As dependent '£ Lady Welter his molive is con- iderably strengthened by the acts about her financial situation vhich have now emerged. From he report of his activities previous to his marriage with Lady Vellcr's daughter it is obvious hat he is something of an ad- •enturer and, since lie was frequently writtcd, probably un- ^rupulous where money is concerned. Moreover, lie is responsi- >le for having introduced into the :arly a known criminal, "Slick" Janiels, alias Count Posodini. MISS ROCKSAVAGE: Nil, as far as is known nt the moment. I then proceeded'to re-examine th<2 whole party.

P.: What's the use, friend? kept up the little bluff yesterday because I had half a hope tha you might lay your hands on th man who gave Blanc his right away. Then I could have gon back to business without any soi of trouble from you folk .at al but it was only holt a hope an I knew that if you didn't get you man you'd pick it up that tV Count stuff was all hooey by to day, K.: Well, that's frank, anyhosv.

The Schick to them through tost, which shows whether a child has this protection in Its body. Is merely a method in which a very small amount of diphtheria toxin is iujcctM under the skin. People who have resistance to disease will have a negative Schick test; tliow wlio have _ not. a positive one. !P . When a person tiocs not possess sufficient resistance to the disease, he may be given this resistance artificially by injection with a substance culled toxoid. Toxoid Is a diphtheria made innocuous, or detoxified. ).»y the addition of formaldehyde There arc both one-dose and two- dose treatments. The majority ot physicians prefer to give the two injections three weeks apart. Injection of this toxoid stimulates formation in the child's body of a substance capable of overcom- in s the diphtheria poison. Use of the Schick test In thousands of cases has shown that about 8 per cent of young babies arc without resistance to diphtheria, from 30 lo 40 per cent ot babies are without resistance at I year of asc, and about 65 per cent are without sufficient resistance ut the age oi 5 j Before the invention of toxoirt it was customary to warn off diphtheria by giving those who had been exposed a dose of the antl- 'oxin.
