Can Save Money If War Isn't In Cards If the average government could only find some wny of letting its right hand know what its left hand <loeth, the world niijfht lin'vc a far belter chiuiee of living x in peace these days. The other day, for example, Japanese and Aimcrican oilieinls gathered about the grave of Commodore Mat• thew Perry, in New York, and c.v ,. changed new. vows as to the eternal qualities of the friendship and har- ! 'hiQivy existing between America and. Japan. j. Japanese Ambassador Saito sent, ;v telegram mentioning "tlic indestructibility of the traditional friendship." An official of the American State Department remarked that Japan and America have never been enemies and that the American people - and gov- , eminent "hope that the reconl thus established will never be impaired." And President Roosevelt, from afar, \ shed his blessing O n the memorial ser- .vices .to the 'American seaman who brought Japan into the modern world. 'NoiV alKthis sounds extremely lino, ' and might lead one to believe that prospects for continued peace between the two nations were,, never better— if it'were not that each of the governments involved supports a lighting ^ force as well as a handshaking depari- ,^'ment, and that the fighters don't seem ^ to • know" just what the handshakers. 7 are up to. .. ..'..p ' ., - , The Japanese have boon' spending millions on their navy 'lately. They have prepared a whole chain of Pacific islands Ifor war tiscs. They have refused to be bound any longer by the limitations of the Washington • laval treaty. And, somehow, it is impossible to escape the,conclusion that, in doing •' these things, they are thinking principally of friendly old Uncle Sam across the water. Similarly, America has been and still is spending vast sums on its fleet. The - Hawaiian base is being • made into a' regular' Gibraltar. There are rumors'of'air bases and the like in the Aleutian, islands. And, once again, it is very hard to doubt that all this is being done with one eye on the friendly Japanese over beyond the ; Pacific. In other' words, these two govern- seem to bo • playing.' the old game of talking peace and preparing to fight. ' Either tho peace talk is a lot oC .hoku'm which isn't meant to be taken seriously, or both nations are spending a lot of money that they might just as well'be using for something else, Before we go any farther, wg would do well to find out Which is tllo case. The ordinary American has no quarrel with the Japanese—indeed, he rather likes them, And if this'talk about indestructible peace is to be taken seriously, he could save a good deal of money on his naval bill. . Can't the two governments find some wily of making their right and left hands acquainted? (AllK.) COU&EB NfcWS You Bet Your Life 'If a man were to bet $17,000,000 against $1 that he could toss a booklet into, the air, and catch it as it falls, he certainly would be thought'to'be foolish. Ho probably would win, but the small gain would not be worth the tremendous risk. By the same token, the pedestrian who risks all the remaining minutes of his life just to save a single minute by crossing tho street recklessly, is an .exceedingly foolish man. In a booklet,' "You Bet Yom Life," has just issued, a'prominent insurance company uses the above illustration, among others, to demonstrate tho folly of gambling with your life. ••.-'" And pedestrians, whether gamblers or not, will have to agree that it is a powerful argument against carelessness on the streets. Pork Lure Wanes Surprising na it may seem, congressmen are getting over their traditional passion for pork. They are beginning to realize that there are no political values in patronage, according to Chairman Rajmspeck of the House Civil Service Committee, because they have to disappoint far more people than they can supply wit.K available jobs. ".••' •••'•'•' If congressmen wouldn't spend so much lime on patronage, suggests Chairman Bmnspeck, they could tend to their legislative work—a point which seems well taken. It is probable; too, that if mon running for .Congress had no ; favors to promise, they would be elected on tlyjir own merits and, 1 •consequently, 'the' highest possible class of men wonM be handling the legislative, duties in Washington.

MORRIS HSHBEIN Editor,' Journal of the American Medical Association, of Hygei.i, the Health Magazine The doctor diagnoses whooping cough by its typical coughing spells and by changes which occur in the blood. Not only do tho white blood cells liv number, but also-a particular form of white blood cell known ns lym- pliccytes; r these have ;> single- nucleus or center, when seen under the microscope. The cough Is so characteristic that a doctor seldom lias much trouble In making a diagnosis although, in mild cases, a positive diagnosis may be impossible. In cases that are hard to diagnose, It Is. of course, possible to make studies of the' exactions i 0 determine presence of ifie serins. ' In preventing whooping cough, certain measures arc of crcat importance. After the palicw has recovered the sickroom should be thoroughly cleaned and aired for 24 to 48 hours. Children affected should never be allowed lo attend school and children who have i,ot. had Ihe disease should be religiously kept ni'ci.v iinnu TODAY M-; /iiiirrr, c i< n r m i n K jmmu SS'IMV York :idvi;rlUli]|£ c'Vi-cilllvi", rents licr ileci_>:irjt>ij fiitJiiT** I'ntitifCf lent eMlUc / li> JjAIIHY S5I1TII, ullrnctlvc Jouni; li.'irjiclrtr ari-Jiltccl. and [iromiitly like* Mm rreuu'nilDiisly.

She was afraid to open that door. The pounding in the silence of the cony morning struck blows of apprehension into her. At last she reached the door and jerked it open. > * ' "Hi, there! You're a' sound sleeper." . It was Jennifer, a little less lovely in the gray light. The hem of her while satin gown .was soiled. Her hands were blue where Ihey .clulched her evening wrap about her shivering shoulders. -Her hair was in disarray but her manner was jaunty enough. Daphne was unable (o speak. Her fears turned to swift anger (hat bubbled up in her throat. Without speaking she turned and went into tho bath, started the hot water in the tub. Then she stepped back to the living room and lighted the hearth fire. ' "Sit here," she said shortly and drew a chair up before the fire. Jennifer sank into it and waved her chiffon handkerchief airily above her head. "Thass what I call service. You're a good sport." Daphne had knell'.down to take off Jennifer's slippers. Thass. The 'word returned to her. She sal back on her heels. "Jennifer," she . asked gently, "have you been drinking?" Jennifer kicked oil her slippers and sat up a bit slraighter. .Her head moved in r ri gesture Daphne knew too well but her voice was not as brave as she meant it to be. "What if 1 have been? I'm of age and I know what I'm doing. Why don't you go to bed?" "That's what I'm going to do. I don't trust myself to talk to you now. Your tub is ready. We'll discuss this tomorrow." Tho mantle clock struck six. Twelve hours later it svas striking when Daphne Jet herself into her living room. This was the hour she had dreaded all day, a day that Jennifer had stolen from her. This should have been a memorable day in her life. A day lo savor her new-found happiness. * o * INSTEAD U had'been a day filled, .with heaviness and weariness. With the weight of her responsibility and the knowledge that it was unfair that she, who was only a girl herself, should have to meet tlm problem that Jennifer had proved herself. She had expected to be greeted with sullenness, with defiance. Perhaps Jennifer would not -be there at all. "Jennifer!" "Hello, darling, welcome home. I've a treat for you tonight. I'm making something you like lor dinner." Jennifer was in the kitchen. Daphne caught her breath in sheer surprise while she took in the unexpectedness of fresh flowers in the bowl on her desk, the small table smar'tly set for two. She took firm hold of herself. She was not lo be wooe'd this way. But she took her cue from Jennifer and responded brightly to Jennifer's questions about fhe day until they had cleared away the dinner and sat, with their coffee, before the blazing hearth. • "Might as well make up your mind to it, Jennifer, the time has come to talk. I want to know where you were last night." "You i might as well make up your mind, you're going to hear some unpleasant things yourself, Daph. One of the things is that I'm not going to be treated like a child anymore. However, I'll tell you where I was last night. I went on a party with George Blumenthal." "Who in heaven's name is George Blumenthal and why did you lie to me about wanting to go out with Tuck?" "George Blumenthal is a very charming, very rich young man that I met at a parly somewhere. He . . .he knoys a lol of people and. he happenetlr to call me up and'ask me out'alter! you had left." Daphne knew that Jennifer was lying. "TfXHC, here, Jennifer, just /long as I'm supporting and responsible (or you, you take orders from me. You're ing back to school tomorrow a finish your course/ You are going out with men 1 haven't m You're not going (o 'take anotl drink. Is that plain?" .

You're not support mo anymore. I'll have a job marrow and you cm like it leave it." Tears welled up in the da eyes and (hen Daphne clasped 1 two. hands, togelher and tura away. • - Instantly Jennifer's arm's about her and she pressed 1 wet cheek to Daphne's. *'•**. ' "QH, I'm sorry! I'm sorry!" s cried. "We were both ang and you've always been wondt fu) to me. I'm a-little tea Daph, but I'll try not'to do again, f promise.
