The difference between what everybody admits is needed and ' what is actually possible is very Kfeat. Old age iiensions, unemployment insurance, and the like cost money, and ' if we try to spend on them more tlian \ye can afford we arc iipt to make things woise than they were before. The unfortunate part about such legislation, in fact, is.that it is .subject • to two kinds of pressure. - In bad times there, is a rising public demand to go much farther tliim is either practical or wise. One need only consider the fantni^tui ?200-a-month schemes now being propagandized to realize tins. * * * In good times, on the other hand, there is an influential demand tliut nothing at all be done, oil the ground that'it might "rocl?"the boat needlessly and put a crimp in prosperity. Beset by-these alternating pressures, social security legislation to ditto has made hardly any progress at all. But this winter we art apt to have a different story. The demand is so .strong, that something will almost certainly be done. - . . That being the case, the'tiling, to remember is tlial'secm-ity legislation is only part of, the picture.' •;':•;>:.,•..':: ; , President Roosevelt. )i;is aptly remarked that "there can be no security for the individual in the midst of general insecurity"; and this is a warning against which all security schemes must be assayed. * •» « ' Any pension and insurance .scheme so ambitious that it sets off a genuine inflation of the currency would, obviously, bo a sorry kind of boon for its benelifciaries. You may keep a man from disaster by giving liim $50 a month—but not if your currency depreciates so fast that ?50 will buy only a loaf of bread. Similaily, ii program so expensive that the taxes needed ' to' finance it picvcd actively deflationary, ;< n,i thus postponed general business recovery, would also be a back-handed arrangement. Unless the- economic machine BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS OUT OUR WAY • can • bo • made to function again, no security scheme wilj do very much good. The problem coiiffont|nj Congress, then, is; exceedingly difficult, 'Tlie de,- raaiid for security legislation, must be met—but t|iere ia need for great wisdom and forethought in .selecting the proper niemis. —iiriicc t'alton. The Measure of Education Hurry L. Hopkins, federal emergency relief administrator, has been offering federal funds to various colleges to help /itninec the education of pool- youths who would not otherwise be able to continue their studies; and to lii.s vexed surprise he lias found several privately endowed eastern colleges, refusing to take the money, on the ground that the country already has rnore college-trained men than it can use. This, of coui-HC, 'is perfectly true; but Mr. Hopkins properly replies that it is a great injustice to reduce the number of college students solely on a financial basis, "Why in the world," he asks, "should we assume, merely because some people hnppoji to have inoiiey, that they are the only ones who should have a higher education?" Why, huleed? We may need an '"aristocracy olhbrnins".in this country; but entrance into, it should be based on brain.s, and not on (he applicant's ability to finance liis way through college without outside help. A Billion Dollar Trade Manuel L. Quezon, slulqd /to bu president of the Philippine commonwealth next yciir, tells; interviewers in Baltimore Unit he will do liis utmost to help American business men retain their present $1,000,000,000 market in the islands after independence goes into effect. But he points out, nlso, thiit whether this market is kept depends chiefly on the American Congress. The Philippine government, he siiys, will protect the United States with iiuotas or tariffs if assured of preferential entry into the American market-for Philippine goods. This tt-Jicfe with the islands is large enough to. he well worth keeping. It can he kept, as-Mr'. Quezon says, if we approach the problem intelligently. It should not he too hard to find a way of doing it without, Jit the same time, working any injustice on .American producers. We like to be comfortable. — R. u.

What is called tlin dlaslolic pressure ranges from " to 90 inlllmclers oi mercury. The higher of Ihc two figures represents the pressure in, the blood vessels Immediately after the heart has contracted. The lower pressure is a measure of the resistance rif the smaller blood vessels'to''"the passage of blootl through llieiii. Some types of high blood pressure arc known to be caused by certain definite conditions. Certain forms of heart disease, exophthal- mic yoiter. tumors of the adrenal glands, and certain-'types of Inflammation of the kidneys are definitely known to be associated with high blood pressure. * o « .
