Back of tlio unemployment, the privations, and the lost profits c!' Uio last few years there rises ii picture of what we might have done if only we could have found some way of keeping ;il! tho wheels turning. This picture liiis now been given deliiiitc form by (lie rcporl-of the National Survey of fotcntial Pi'iWuet Capacity, authorized, hy the federal government last March to sec just how far our actual production and eon- stimplion fell short of what was possible. The report''submitted by. Uii.s group is one of the most important documents offered the American .people in recent years. It stales bluntly that thu sviuils of .every citizen could have been,met without (he necessity' for capacity production. In other.words, whiil-some ot 'tis have long suspected is proved to be true—there v is no physical reason why anybody in America .'should lack for anything. ' •• . * * * In the banner year-of 1920, for instance, we produced food worth nearly ?27,000,000,000. But been use 59 per cent of our families get along/ on in- coriies-jpf less th;m ?2,000 a .year, they were forced to consume diets, containing too little moat. If we had produced ?3,000,UOO,000 more of food products, every family could.have had « proper diet.. In 1920,-'also, we bought 20,000,000 men's suits, 173,000,000 dresses, 0,270,000 men's coals and GM,GOO,000 pairs • of women's stockings. '. Put the clothing industry was capable of producing between.'two and three times as much, in each of • these groups; every citixen could have had plenty of decent, wcU-!\tUnu clothing without calling on tho industry for capacity production. * * * , . If all our unemployed 'doctors and nurses had been put to work, every person in America could •'•have had perfect medical treatment for §<!2 n year. If our building industry worked at capacity, every family in Amor- icH,could be occupying a plftisnnt, tip- to-<lato home-inside of 10 years, i Our trangportatioi) system could be expanded enormously ;uid. run profitably; we could easily spend $12,000,000,000 a'year on'.education, instead of npproxinwtcly $3,725,000,000, as we do now. How is a Utopian picture like this to lie I'CHlixgd? The board rcinurkx Unit each of OKI- 27,000,000 families must have a buying power of $4,700 a year— which, as they say, is a nood trick if you can do it. Hut however dill'iciilt the attainment of that goal may bo, the importance of the report as a whole, can hardly be ora-cstiniiiled. Everybody can have enough oil everything, if we can just liml the secret, —Unite To Keep Children Erect If the infantile paralysis .serum developed by Dr. William II. Parks, of the New York city health department, proves UK effective as he believes it will be, humanity will be indebted to 'that Kctitletmui, about as .deeply us it is ever indebted to anyone. Dr. Park has found a serum which ho believes grants immunity against tin's dreadful disease. Approximately 25 people have been iimoculated with it so far; all have received immunity. Kurthcv tests, of course, will have to be made to .see whether the immunity is permanent, and to make sure also that there, are no unforeseen faults in the process•; but the present outlook is exceedingly encouraging. In any case, it will take some time before this serum can be made available to physicians oiilsidi.- of Now York. Hut if present expectations are fulfilled, a tremendous achievement in preventive medicine will have been made. Example of Inflation Those who feel thai, inflation of the currency-would be a good thing for the country ought to get together; with the Texas negro who decided to go in for a little inflation, of his own. This 'man took a one-dollar bill, touched it- up with a bit of green paint, ami made ; it read, $1,000,000. Then he took it to a bank and tried to deposit all except $200 of it, which' ha,:'askcd for in cash. Unfortunately, it. was. just at this point; that he fell afoul of the law, «nd he probably will have no chance to make any further experiments. But his effort was not so different from that of the inflationists even so. In each case, money- is pushed far beyond its real value and made worthless. .Whether you, dp.:'the.trick with green paint or a government decree makes little difference*. . WEDNESDAY.

MORRIS nSHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, ami of Ify- Beia, the Health Magazine.. I hsve mentioned frequently in this column the unusual forms of painful conditions which develop in certain kinds of jobs. Probably you know about writ- let's cramp, but are you aware IliaL there are similar conditions occurring among telegraphers, hammerers,, and twislrrs? Writer's cramp scorns to occur more, often in people who arc inclined, to be nervous and anxious than in those who ate more stolid cd in writing. Telegrapher's cramp is something of the same kind, but occurs to men who punch the telegraph key nnct ntflicls the hand and arm that arc concerned in the work. The twister's cramp occurs to people in Uic weaving industry who spend most of. their lime twisting for weaving purposes. In each instance, of course, a change in occupation and a rc- inoval ot the particular stress which brought on the disturbance will releave the condition.
