The Couft and Democracy It is a peculiar process of renaoii- ing that bh'ngs some of our lognl liiminarios, radio commcHUtors, editorial writers and statesmen to the eon- dusion that American democracy i.s threatened by President Roosevelt's, supreme court reorganization proposal. Whatever else 'may be said for or against the president's plan it !s at least certain that it Mil lessen by not a whit the democracy of our fonn, of government. To the contrary, if, as is also charged, its effect would be to weaken (lie authority and prestige of the suprdme court,' then to an equal , degree it would make our govern- mentVmore democratic. For the supreme court is not a democratic institution. There is reason to believe that it was designed to serve as a check upon democracy. It is certain that it so functions. The word democracy is derived from two Greek words, one meaning the people and the other power or strength. ;A democratic gov.enimeiit Is one iii - which the people rule. Directly or in,: Directly the executive and. .legislative branches of our government arc aub- • jecl to the will of the people. If -we don't approve of their actions we can and do throw, them out and try (< a new Jot. But the supreme court, although exercising, the ultimate jiower to approve or reject acts of; the'lc'gis- lative ami executive branches, is ,not subject to the'will of the people. Its members, appointed instead of elected and .holding office for life, i,,- Q ' r C . -sppnslblo only to their . own con . scie'nces. . ...••' So while it is hai . (i ( 0 SC( , hpw u president's plan for enlarging or « |)!(C | C , >»B tne court can effect any material or ! curb upon it, whatever it accomplishes in llud direction *ili not make ours n ! 0bs democratic govern- dpes Invaded Mai Js ' World, Who'd Know? ' Nothing i s more tantalizing than a s°ry that is only partly told. H j s a very well to use the imagination to Wl m the gaps, but there arc places where this is not enough - T ' lw "• °««ai>le, the little to the movies. This story, origiiviling in India, got on the cables the other day ami was printed in ciivers American newspapers. It told how a monkey wandered into a motion picture theatre in Bangalore. He seems to have come in about 20 minutes after the picture started, walking: im'moJcstcd through [lie main entrance and taking a scat in the popular-priced section. He behaved, according to the story, "like any 'orderly film fan," remaining 16 the end of the picture nnd departing with dignity. Noiv that is ail very well as far as it goes, but it leaves a lot untold. What picture was it, for instance, that drew this adventurous monkey out of the jungle? Was it, by any chance, one of those miraculous tilings in which Johnny Weissmullcr swings gallantly from tree to tree; and if so, did the .'monkey understand what Johnny was saying, and applaud? Was it one of those pcnlhoiise-ard-chonis-tfirl pictures, with a villain who collects etchings and means no good? Or could it have been a gorgeous Hollywood musical,, with phalanxed dancing beauties going through their maneuvers with the camera poised directly overhead? It would be interesting,' too, to know how the-monkey, reacted to the "trailers'—those combinations of adjectives and action which undertake to tell what is going to be shown next week. Is it going too far to say that lie-would seem to be the ideal audience for such things? Far more vital than these questions, however, is the effect which an afternoon of movie-going may have on this ape's future. Will it render him dis- satisliedwitJi jungle life, infected with a taste for human society? Win no wind up by. leading (l j ung | c exodus, so that monkeys as a group take to dropping in on all kinds of human gatherings? The thought is a shnddery one. A chimpanzee might. wander ' into one of our more dignified clubs, drop into .a» easy ;chahv and go unnoticed for ever so long, mistaken for one of the members. A gorilla might stray onto a college campus and become a football hero before the error was discovered. AlitLthc imagination reels at the-thought of a simian invasion of the House of Representative.!). What laws might hot gel passed, befoi'e the correspondents were able to spot the invaders! . . ,;it is a thought-provoking; business, •iis of the monkey at the movie. The Indian correspondent really should have . tolci us 'much more-about it. —Bruce Cattoii.

Dangerous Erisypdas Aj)])eai- s Most Frequently During Winter Months <NO. 158) BY OK:- aioiiitis KiHlor, Journal of Ihc American -.Medical (Usocblion, :m<i n f Hyscia, the Hcallli Magazine The streptococcus causes n cood many diseases thai' affect the "human beine. One of the moM .serious condilions caused by strepto- ttwcf is .crysinelas. It used lo be called St.' Anthony's'Firc"-a fine descriptive, term for the acute brilliant red inflammation of the skin that distinguishes crvtipclas. Erysipelas may appear anywhere on Ihe body, although certain parts arc more likely to be alfrci- cd than others. It pnrls ot a pov- son's body have been frozen the tissues may be .sfl damaged that erysipelas will appear sccomlarilv tenown to Ihe ancient Greeks nnd Romans, tills disease apparently hns attacked human bcinss IT?U- Inrly since Ihe'earliest times. " Erysinclas occurs mcst iid»n during the month's trom Oetolier lo March rather lhan in the Mnn- inerlime, and reaches it.s highest frequency In March. Tills disease is not so common In children as it is In peusons between the ages of 20 and 00. Men have eiyslpelas more often than do women because of ihe nature of their occupations and because they .are exposed more frequently to physical inju,i cs nnd bad weather condilions in the winter months. Before the nature of Infection was understood, there were great epidemics of erysipelas in hospitals. Tho infection would be carried from one person lo another by careless attendants. Nowadays tiie great danger of erysipelas is iccojiiiMd, and any person who has this disease is promptly put inSc a room fcy himself and is assisml an individual nurse or attendant who takes care of him alone, and nsver ROSS ncnr .olher people until the condition is under conlro], People living at home should, o course, emulate this practice, 1. anyone in the family has erysipc- lls, one pci'.'on only should be selected lo iak; care of him. Since the disease is -spread by contamination of Ihe hands of the attendant, ht.s hands should bej i thoroughly ivas!i«l with ROitn and 15 water and, p;rhnps. an Antiseptic ;• solution, each time lhat he leaves the patient. Arrangements must be marie, moreover, to prevent excretions from Ihe Inllammalion or infected area from coming into contact wilh any material that might be used by Fomcone else. isM^jwr-wt'.gssi "No, a present," she said enig- , , , ( natically.
