'League Can't'End War, :• but Still Is Valuable The- Lca'fiuc of Nations has not ' exactly been covering itself with glory in Hie last few years. Having been dc- licd by its enemies and deserted by ' its friends, it. hns withdrawn to a quiet corner of the ulago \\i\A is, seemingly, wailing only for the undertaker to conic and provide a decent burial. But it hasn't been buried yet, and it is still as busy as it ever was in those quiet:, unobtrusive activities . which never do get the headlines. - , • A recent bulletin from the League of Nations Association in New York summarizes some of the things which the league is now doing. It is preparing to summon an international conference on the' sugar . trade, by which the industry may bo stabilized and decent security assured to planters and workers in far-distant parts of Ihe globe. It is continuing to help tho Chinese in their reconstruction prog r a m. League experts are busy advising the Chinese on such matters as health, ' finance, agriculture, hydraulics, and flood control. The league also is enabling Chinese engineers and other specialists to study abroad and get contacts and information which will enable them to servo their country belter. The. league's health organization, ' •" meanwhile, has been • getting international standards seU for such things', as anti-pneumonia serum, stnpliylococcns antitoxin, and so on. Governments and commercial laboratories throughout the,-world,'as a result, are enabled to give their people bettor protection against disease. Standing alone, this catalog of activities is impressive. It is only when contrasted with the great war-prevention work that the league was designed to do that it looks small. Because : the league has failed miserably in tho larger sphere, the solid and substantial work it has done in the lesser one escapes our notice. And yet, with this kind of work being done quietly, honestly, and fully, we cannot say that the league has failed. For if it is doing nothing else, it is at least giving us a constant object lesson in the value of international co-operation and mutual help. The dictators and the war-mongers may rant and strut and Battle their sabers; all the while,'these'Bclf-eft'ac- ing league workers are doing their pail to make men happier and life richer—doing it with a serene disregard for international .boundaries, hatreds, or suspicions. May the power of that example have its effect on us, before the world slips into the orgy of collective throat- cutting which seems to lie ahead of it. President vs. Court Profiling nothing, it appears, by the sad experience of the Literary Digest last fall, tlic Courier News and some hundreds of other newspapers arc embarking upon a poll of popular .sentiment on President Roosevelt's proposal to break through the supreme court barrier to vital features of his New Deal program. The participating. newspapers are published in large and smaM towns throughout the country. Their readers, it seems safe to say, arc about ; as typical a cross-section of American public opinion as could be found. Few of them can qualify as constitutional authorities but most of them have pretty definite ideas about the kind of government they want. Their,views— the views of, plain Mr. and Mrs. John Citizen—arc important because, in the long runYand regardless of the outcome of the present New Deal vs. Supreme Court controversy, they will determine the future course of events in this country. President Roosevelt, we imagine, takes it for granted that the people are on his side. Maybe ho is right, though the American people have always been slow to attempt to overrule the decisions of their courts. In any case it will be interesting, to watch the voting. We invite, all readers to mark and send in the ballots which, will appear in this paper for the next few days and to watch the progress of the voting here and throughout the country as it will be recorded in the Courier Nehvs. SIDE^jGLAINCES There use blinking the fnct Hint today the supreme court is Itself on liinl before the whole, nation. . —senator' Joseph F.

J.: Wiiiit the hell d'you mean? K.: Just what I say. Count Posodini is known to the police and his intimates as "Slick" Daniels, card sharp and con man, who trades the Atlantic ships. Would you like me to tell you just tho sum that "Slick" took off you on the Normandie before you tumbled to it that he was a crook? J.: I see. Posodini is a crook and you found him out, then jumped to it Hint he murdered Blanc so, to protect himself, lie's faked up some cock and bull story involving me, has he?

INC. needn'l think it I had not the least reason in the world lo wish any ill to Blane and very fortunately for me, as it happens, my wife can prove that I was lying in my bnili at 7:45, when we nil know that Blane was still alive from the fad that he scribbled something on the back of the note thai was sent down to him at that lime. K.: How d'you know Hint? J.: Mr. rjocksavage lotd me and, if you don't mind uol interrupting, as I was about lo add, my wife having been Avith me in our suite from 7:45 until we arrived in (lie lounge at 8:30 to- geiher, thnl proves quite con4 clusivoly that I had no hand in Bte;ie's death. K.: Does it, Mr. Jocelyn? I wonder. I am quite satisAed that "Slick" didn't do this job. Murder is absolutely outside his line of country, whatever he may have led you to suppose when you had your little talk about Blane on the Normandie. J.: I suppose that's another portion of Posodini's cock and bull story. • TT. Mr. Jocelyn, it happens to AV « have been my job to spend a good portion of my life examining the criminal classes and so oflicers like myself get n sort of feeling as to when they're telling the truth and when they're not. It's my belief that "Slick" has come clean with me and, in any case, I'm pretty satisfied about his movements during the time under review, so I think you'd better count him out. Now, if we accept iiis story, il seems that you invited him on board, knowing him to be no belter than he should be, and knowing too tbat he had a definite grudge against Bdlitho Blane. lie took advantage of your invitation because il gave him the opportunity lo mix with a swell crowd where he might have picked up a lot of loose money, but if we're to believe his statement you had far more cause to wish Blane out of the way than he had. You're in a pretty bad spot, Mr. Jocelyn, and I think Hie time has come when yoi;'d better stop lying and tell the truth. J.: You—you're not really suggesting that I murdered Blane, are you? K.: I am. J.: Bui—but, this is fantastic. Besides I've already fold you that my wife can prove that she found me in my bath at 7:45, and thai we were never out of each other's sight from lhat lime 'on, until wo went up lo dinner at 8:30. K.: I have jusl advised you lo stop lying, Mr. Jocelyn. Your wife did not find you in your bath at 7:45, because she was somewhere else at that time, and for the bcsl part of half an hour onwards. During that time I don't know where you were, but it may quite well have been in Blane's cabin. In fact it's going to look like that unless you can provide some other explanation as to how you were spending your time. J.: I was in my bath, I tell you. All I know is that wlrcn my wife came into Ihe cabin, I asked her the.time and she said that it was 7:45. She may have been wrong. II may have been much lalcr. How do T know. K.: It it was : much later, that doesn't improve your situation, •Because you definitely wanted Blane out of the way and, { _unless 'you .can^bring .evidence 'to show wbal you were doing beUveen 7:45 and 8:15, I must assume thai, iy. im lie M since you've lied lo me on ot'ij natters, you're lying now a lhat you were in Blane's cab * * » T. Now look here, Officer, whc| "• or my wife was right I wrong about the time I do know, but one tiling that stai| out a mile is that there is a n on board this yacht who had more reason to wish Blane out] the way than ever I had K.: Who? J.: Why, Rocksavage, of courj Two days ago he was bankrul Now lhat Blane's shares have gol to pot, as anybody knew tli| would the moment ho was de: Rocksavage has been buying e 1 . share in the Blane companies Ihey come on Hie market.

And Ihe ... lie's gol to thank for it is Blanl death. K.: Yes, I sec that, but thcrl one point you seem to have ill gotten, or perhaps you did! know it, because -you wouldl have the same opportunity as 11 had to check up on these liJ stooets. Rocksavage did not leal the lounge to go below al change until 8:10 and even lh| he wasn't back in the lounge til 8:35, five minutes late for c ner.

When these become infecte'd or inflamed, duo usually'to invasion by various types of germs, the n I (lie ted'per- son develops meningitis, which means nn inflammation of - tho jneninges. There arc various types of meningitis, depending on the genii rcsiwnslble. If it be the germ of tuberculosis, the con- ciitlon is tuberculous meningitis. The pneumonia germ causes pncu- mccoccus meningitis, anct streptococci brings on strcptococcal mcn\ Ingitis. Each of thew conditions is the organism sought when meningitis occurs in epidemic form. The condition sometimes is called ccrcbro-spinal fever. Since it was first described, meningitis has gradually appeared all over the Avorld and is probably affecting more people steadily. Dining the World War all armies were attacked to some extent b'y this condition. ' New York hart a severe epidemic in 1904-05 in which there were 2755 cases, with 2020 deaths. Tiic most recent severe outbreak in the United States occurred bd- twecn 1923 and 1930. It is well established that genus which cause meningitis enter t'.ie human body through the nose and then pa; The diagnosis usually Ls made by puncluring the spinal cord with a needle dcveloixxt particularly for this purpose, anrt withdrawing some of the fluid for examination. in this fluid, the germs which cause the infection arc found. Certain forms of meningitis nrc almost invariably fatal. Tills applies particularly to the tubercu- lous and pncumococcus types. The type of meningitis which is most common, however? is that due to a special germ known as mcnlngocoecus.
