In it he pointed,out the reasons .for the existence of navies; and in this crisis in's rommKs aic worth listening to. A nation builds a navy, ho .says, to protect, its shores from .invasion, to keep itself fioin being starved by interruption tit' its .sca-bonio commerce, to protect its merchant ships and colonies, or to implement some overseas policy.

Hitler Raises Fear In Saar On Jan. K! |»lcW.scite will lie held in the Saar basin to determine whether the inhabitants of that rich mining area wish to become part nfjjcvmnny, part of France, or an autonomous area under protection of the League 'of Nations. Hitler's Na/is have made the return of (lie Saar ;\. cardinal point in their foreign policy, lint now it develops that their very determination lo get it back may prove the chief stumbling block in their path. Dr. Michael T. Klorinsky^ professor of economics at Columbia University, who spent the summer in the Saar, investigating conditions there, reports 'thai the'inhabitants have almost no ilesiuo for annexation to I'Yaiicc. They arc German by birth and culture; normally, (hoy would vote over- whclm.ingly for reunion with the fatherland. Kill: UicyVitcu beginning to lie- afraid 'of Hitler.

I.ul'die president's electric power program, reiterated during his visit to Muscle Shoals, is not a thing llw business community can be expected to applaud heartily. ^ furthermore, it is reported in Washington that business .will expect administration concessions on'labor policy—which the administration may prove very loath to make.

NOVEMBER !}4, Explains Apparent Increase in Number of Mental Defectives Association, and of Hygcla, tliu Heal|h Magazine Discussions published relative lo gradual increase in number of mental defectives need not alarm us loo gi'ealty. In fact, two Investigate in Great Britain lave carefully considered tliu possibility actually of Increasing the number of defectives. Dilliculty of evaluating the fig- iircs is great, became present ,'Stliuates of what constitutes mental deficiency differ from those of even 20 years ago. The great majority of cases that are. now called fceble-miiKled would not have been culled feeble-minded In 1900. Some authorities point out lliat the reason there are more defectives now than there used to be Is the fact that we are now savins the live.s of many' more infants Hutu used lo be saved, and that the lives of'people in general are being prolonged far beyond what used lo be possible. There is no evidence lo indicate that the mentally defective have proportionately more children than do normal You should realize that our definition of mental defectiveness is not really a definition of mentality, but one or the social capacity of the person concerned, We judge the clefectiveness of the Individual by his ability to get aloiig with other people in this world. It is now generally known - that many people are much more intelligent than others. Intelligence below the average is, therefore, like stature below Ihc average. It com. - pllcatcs the life of the individual. but may not necessarily .'be n sign of disease. Fortunately, the world ha s jobs for people .of'all-rates of intelligence. It Is" Just as sad to see a man of great intelligence In a job which could be done by a person below the average, as it is to 1 see a iwrsoii with less than average Intelligence trying to fill a place for which lie is not fitted. It has also been well established thai people who are dull and of jow intelligence arc likely to have children of lor i intelligence. Roughly, 15 per cent of people with lessened intelligence come from stocks which exhibit distinct mental abnormalities. On the other hand, (here are "c- casipnal cases even of Idiocy "in families in which the parents and Enmdparcnts are found to be oJ high order of intelligence. Tills means that the normal can carry even over several generations a certain amount of defective stock, .or coitrss, the surroundings in which. H person is raised and all the factors associated with the general environment are important in determining the "extent lo which' defective intelligence will develop. ...... Given a stock which is dull or defective, and an environment which precludes it from education and development, the result -Is quite certain-to be a very low order of mental capacity Auto Wrecker Savtd cow ESTACADA, Ore.
