Wells, in his entertainiui; "Experiment in Autobiography," re- rails llitil in his early youtli—Lhc iiye of 13 lo be |>reci-a—ideas such ;it> .(.host; upon wliich Adolf Ililler luis risen to power in Germany had it strong appeal lo him. That was Ijcfore Ihe days of pseudu- scicntilic demonstrations of the innate superiority of the "Nordic" over thu various dark eyed or dark skinned laces, hut to Wells the'idea that his own race was the best of all races came naturally enough, as no douht it does to most of n«. The point Wells makes is that before h(j reached phy- sical'maturity lie had undergone .suf- licient mental development to push such pleasant, nonsense aside. As to his apparent conclusion lhat (lie Gcnnaii people today, in making a fetish of self-proclaimed German racial superiority, reveal an exceptional lack of mental maturity, there may be difference of opinion. The proportions wliich the KM Klux Klan movement reached jn our., own country a few years ago, anil Hie following which such men as Hucy P. Long have been able to muster, are indications that, given the right set of circumstances and effective leadership, it is not inconceivable that we might make ourselves as ridiculous as the Germans in the eyus of an observer liku ',Mr. Wcllsl Aside from all that, how.ever, it is well frequently' to remind ourselves that pride of ancestry is the most fool- ; isli of all prWc.s. An individual wliu possesses cstiniablc (nudities is no doubt in :thc debt of his forebears, but, there is no compensation for the lack of such inmiitics in the fact lhat one's forebears possessed them.' And as to any superiority that may be-supposed to accompany blond hair, blue eyes, a fair skin, and what the fellows who sut store by such things cair dolichocephalism, as opposed to dark hair, eyes and skin and a round head, the question is always in order, superior for what purpose' 1 .' Gentlemen, or some of them at least, may prefer blonds, but the worthwhile work •of this world has been done by so many different types of human beings that it is worse than foolish to try to set up your own or any other one type as inherently better than the rest. OUT OUR WAY 'Horse Sense" LE;: (AUK.) COURIER NEWS A dispatch from Little Rock reveals that IB of the M investigators of Ihe Arkansas alcohol lax tuiil of Hie Uur- eau of Internal Revenue have dunked a "horse sense" test and as a result will be seeking new jobs after November SO, H is a sad, sad story. When Hie' Roosevelt administration came into power it was decided lhat rather than replace- tlto existing prohibition and liiuior tax enforcement personnel wilh deserving Democrats it would "be the course of wisdom to retain (lie best of the men who had gained experience in sucli work in the preceding Republican administration. And it,was so decreed. Jiut Senator Kenneth D. McKcllar of Tennessee, horror struck at the discovery that among those kept on the payroll were numerous Republicans, obtained legislation requiring Ihe discharge and replacement of all agents tumble to pass a test lo be prescribed by the civil service commission. ' Unfortunately it developed (hat contrary to the senator's intention his law applied not only lo the holdovers from the former administration but also lo new men, appointed on the recommendation of Democratic palron- age dispensers. So examinations arc being held throughout the country and if tlio pereentflgc of fatalities elsewhere IK as heavy as in Arkansas the alcohol unit seems in line for lots of new agents. Whether the "horse sense" which they will be required to demonstrate before receiving their appointments will compensate for their 'lack of experience remains to be seen. Scrip Use of Jilytheville relief scrip has Picked up remarkably in recent weeks, which is gratifying not only in the promise which it holds of 'funds at least partially adequate to meet relief needs during the coming winter but in the demonstration which it affords of the willingness of business men and others to eo-oiwrate in meeting a community problem. More than that, is a • tribute to thu hard work .which' lias beendoim by two men, C. H. Wilson, chairman, and Oscar Fcndler, .secretary of the. general committee promoting ttie use of scrip and stamps. It has taken a good many hours of personal effort on their part to get the program functioning on its present promising though by no means 100 per cent effective basis. ' The thought-is suggested that with these two men and a few others making real sacrifices to put this thing across the least that the rest of us can do is to help make their task easier by using scrip and .stamps whenever opportunity offers. So far as corporation!; arc concerned, Ilicy all exist as creatures of the states. —Mark Graves, president, New York Stats Tux Commission. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark ' jp*^ 4 * /N %:: ?/R"V/..

MOHKK FISHBEIN liililor, Journal of U, c American Medical Associaljon, ana of Hy- gcla, the• Heuttli Magazine Science has gone rav enough with '.itmeiU of tuberculosis to i )e n b!e .0 tell why some people ate likely to get this disease while others are nol, and what there is In the physical structure of 11 person to makj him more predisposed to this dls- 'se than arc others. Of course, you know that «,u-h ;>crson lias a constitution which is individually his ami. in other words, no two ol us are made up exactly alike. By makeup we refer nut onlv ID the structure ol the body, but 'also to the powers which it "i ms in It.., blood and in its tissues to resist disease. There seems to tie some evidence llmt nil of us inherit our constitutions largely from our ancestors and that some types of people can resist disease better than others. It is known also that Hie germs vary in their makeup and that they must find soil to which they can accommodate themselves. The germ ol tuberculosis that, affects birds will not live in the body of a human being. On the other Imnd, the erm that alfccU cattle -will. Therefore, in considering how people set tuberculosis, we have to know Hie structure of their bodies, the number and kinds ot germs of tuberculosis with which they come in contact, the kind of foods they eat, the homes in which they live and many oilier similar factors. Today we recognize not only that the constitution of Die body has a good deal to do with the question of whether a person develops tuberculosis, but that the quantity of .Bonus to which lie is exposed mid I the nature of these gsmis may also be exceedingly signiflfaut. •Iw slate this matter "in another way—both the constitution, or heiedity, mid environment are important in considering the likelihood of one's developing tnbjrcu- losis. Of course, we can change our en- viruhmeiils. We can provide nso- ple with proper nutrition, including a sunk-lent amount of mineral salts and vitamins. We can makj sure that they get enough sunlight and Ircili nlv, enough outdoor exercise, anil enough rest. We can make certain that the jobs at which t'ncy work do not bring in irritating factors, because we know that the constant breath- of dusts of a certain type may be associated with an increased amount cf tuberculosis. We can endeavor to find work and conditions of work which are congenial, because even such factors as these may be associated with a lessening or increasing of resistance. We know also that a human body that has been infected with influenza or measles Is in a state In which tuberculosis is more likely to occur. Therefore, particularly after such conditions as thssc, we must see , that the patient .has enough rest before getting up and going back to work. We must see also that his blood is built up to a normal state. We cannot do much to change the anatomical structure of the human being, and thus far we have not fully established special methods ol inoculation against tuberculosis to increase the specific resistance against the disease which may be naturally In the body- However, we con make ccrl jlhat those who are likely to velop tuberculosis be x-..,,i• „, rom sources of lar S e closes of tuberculosis germs. : If society does its utmost to ci Irol those factors that it can pi Irol, it, will probably do B „,', oeal to lessen the tolal amount tuberculosis that occurs <„ „ community. .. .
