We Should Honor Men Who Prolong Life Our ideas about fume arc jiBeiiliar, Let a man start and win a great war, bringing death and suffering to thousands upon thousands of people and leaving the world with infinitely more misery thfin it hud when he came on the scene, and we will write his. name large in headlines ami history books— as with Napoleon or Bismarck. But the man who actually leaves the world a happier place than lie found it—the man who makes it possible.for people to live longer, who reduces the sum total of pain and despair—is very apt to wind up with a :briel' little footnote so that only the -specialists remember his name. , You can name (he trreat generals of the World-War without half trying, 'for instance: Hindc'iibiirg, "ftaig, Perahing, Foch, LiuleiulorfV, ami half a dozen more. But can you tell what is the claim to fame of these-Uiree physicians — Doctors : George Mil jot, William P. ( Murphy and GcorgO H. Whipple?

For the Sajeiy of Capitalism When Raymond Moley told the Congress of American Industry that the New Deal is fundamentally an effort to preserve American capitalism, ho touched on a point that ought to be remembered in any discussion of the "left" or "right" tendencies of '(his administration. There can be different ideas of Hie best method to preserve capitalism, of course- and the New Deal may be adopting a method somewhat farther to the left than many people Ihink entirely sound. But basically it is not a radical move. The radical 'seeks to tear down the existing structure 1 0 make way for something that he believes will be better. Tho present. administration, when all is said and done, is frying to save it. In that sense it is a conservative administration. Di-.
