Your"Dollar Will Help *. CommiUoe.s licre anil at Osumhi arc busy with the advance sale of tickets for dances to l)u hold the niglit oT January 30 in honor of the Mrlluiny of President HoosBvelt anil to raise funds for combatting iiifnntilo paralysis and t'oi* providing trectnifnt for child cripples. Some of us are too, old lo dance or may havo oilier good reasons for .slaying away from the parties, but there is no good reason why any o!' us who has an extra dollar should fail lo buy a tickfl. Do it us a .small tribute to President Roosevelt, if you fee! that wiiy. toward him, or do it as a small contribution toward tins future welfare of hundreds of thousands of child cripples. Oni>thml of the-money raised will go to linaiic'i: research in life cansi.-, prevention and treatment of infantile paralysis. The remaining 70 per cent will be.kept in lliis comity lo provide treatment for our own crippled children.' . The jjivitt national campaign against 'infantile paralysis is a splendid and dramatic thiiit;. The (axle of wiving for future usefulness, child cripples here at home is perhaps leas dramatic but certainly not less important. A survey a few years ago revealed about 1,200 Mississippi eoulity children suffering from crippling conditions of various kinds. In some cases the handicap may ije relatively slight, iii a few it may be incurable, while of course Hie parents of many are able to provide (he necessary treatment. I5u% there are scores 'aii'd hundreds of children in one own comity who might be made physically sound by the 'expenditure of a few dollars- which their parents do not have. It is an economic, a.s wi'Jl jis ji luiiiianitarifin problem. Without help these children are doomed to lives of dependency upon relatives or public chiu-ity. Proper treatment can make them tise.l'ul, productive citizens. Your, dollar will help. Who Can Say. We Are -•'•Belter''or Worse Ovti- in Paris, a convict named Benjamin Ullmo, having served 2G years on France's Devil's Island, returns, OUT OUR WAY looks oy«i' Hie world o'f IMS, and 'finds il terrible.. He says he's going: buck to (|io penal colony, lliougli lit was offered a job in Pans. The world today disgusts liitn, wiy.s tins man who has seen nothing of it for 2(j yetii's. "What 1ms struck mo jiiosl," he is (juotcd us saying, "is the extraordinary spiritual collapso in the world, and the decline in conscience and intelligence. I have been less impressed l>y Hie niftlc'rial progress ... It is not so niycli the lowering of moral standards, as Hie immeasurable stupidity of preseHl-clay humanity, which regards itself as so superior." Now this is worth listening to, for •A iniin who hii.s seen nothing of the world since 1900 ought to get a singular view of it. But il needn't be swallowed without thought. • » • in the first place, no thoughtful pur- son regards Immunity today as "xo superior." No one can even glance around him without realizing thai humanity today lias all too slim a claim to superiority. tfufi was it so superior in 1909? The United Status was being regaled with the Uallinger laiid scandals, and'Con- gress was busily engaged with the I'ayue-Aldrich tariff. Few look back lit either, incident today with any great pride. '' ' : And lOii'ropu was industriously straining, through its mesh of alliances and colonial and trade rivalries, the hell-broth Unit was to scald the entire earth with World War within five years. There was really nothing so superior about that, either. Thu old argument as to whether people are better or Hum' lk<y used (o be, whether the world is gradually Hilling from a past state of grace, is a pretty futile one. ' * * * The really, imporlant thing:'is thai there is plenty of room'for. .improvement in any case. Whether .spirituality has "collapsed," and whether conscience and intelligence 'have "declined" are not so important, as the fact that they'; aren't what they ought to be today; and that (hoy aren't what 1 they must, be if we are to create'the better world that everybody is hoping for. • : -Mr it is (hi; : improvement in conscience, intelligence, a n d morality among individual men thai will create the real permanent progress of the future. People arc too apt these days to put faith in a "system"; to believe that if this law were' passed, that system adopted, the other panacea ailmihis'ler- «l, every tiling would be all right, —Bruce Gallon.

Therefore, the one important principle would .seem to be restriction or tile carbohydrate foods, Hinclpally because persons with' arthritis have difficulty with carbohydrates, due to abnormalities in their intestinal tract, and because Hip records show that some of these patients improve with lesseniiv of 'V carbohydrate intake. Tlic best diet for any arthritic or rheumatic rJerson, however is n well-balanced diet. More-over you ;>hould be certain that such diet is adctinalc in vitamins and in mineral salts, and contains wf- licient amounts ot calories to keep up nutrition. An example ot such diet is lhe following: Urc.iki'iis[ Fresh fniit—average serving. Orange or grapefruit ' juice—1 (jlilSS. Eg US—2. Racon—3 slices, ftyc Incad toast—I slice. Duller—2 squares.
