Sharp Courtesy Contrasts In Homes and on Highways It is surprising that some folk will display rudeness behind the slburing wheel of an automobile which they would not for one moment show toward friend or foe within the walls of their own home. That rudeness is, or should be, extremely embarrassing when it is directed against a friend or neighbor, and, it is bad advertising for a city when a stranger happens to be (lie victim of such rudeness displayed at times by those who usurp the right-of-way •when the rules of the road, and common dency dictate that a little less haste and a little kindness offer not only a better policy but a safer policy. Even those who are addicted to hogging the right-of-way, or are prone to hamper and sometimes block traffic while double parking, should pay more attention to traffic rules for their own safety, for no other reason. * The courts'recognize the rules of the road and in the event of an accident, those who double park, pull out from the curb without signals, or wantonly violata other tratfic regulations throw themselves liable for cyvil damans in the event of an accident. They can be held liable even when the other follow hits them if h e happens to be driving with with reasonable precaution while the other driver is negligent in such matters as simple hand signals. Those who will not be as courteous on the highway as they normally would be at home should take heed for their own protection. Traffic !j s | lts im|)ose a new responsibility on all drivers. nnd Place new hazards in the path of pedestrians and motorists unless every per «>n using the street s observes the stop and go signals. Traffic aids help only when they are USC(1 by gafe (h .. vev - Reckiess and negligent drivers make travel more hazardous on streets in cities where mechanical aids to safety &T« 11 carl J used. Non-Swimmers Cautioned To Stay Out of Small Boats Summer means swimming-time to millions of y ounsr Americans and to a yood many older ones, too. Judging by past seasons and fio- u ,. es furnished by the Y.M.C.A. and the Red Cross, this summer will mean the end of perhaps 6,000 live, in America, ^f^V 6 " 0118 ' Usl year 6 ' 5 °o t death by dro\vning. These were tragic deaths, and " " te faCt that ™" need not have happened if simple S3fety had bee " '«" swim, and to swim well. That '« being made easy tot children in «ville through the courses offered Pool in Walker Pwk uuder tlw •upervision of th« Red Cross and train- cd personnel. But those who cannot swim well should not only stay out oi deep water, but should stay out of small boats. Small boats and non-swimmers form * deadly combination, hi the event 11011- swimmers do get spilled from a boat, the best thing to do is to cling to the boat instead of trying to make the shore. Children are Uie victims of a majority of water accidents. They should be encouraged—but not forced—to learn to swim, and they should learn in well- guarded pools under competent adult instruction. Two Friends of the Soviet Union Kcluard Benes' resignation, like Jan iUasaryk's death, will not help Czechoslovakia or restore its people's freedom. Both acts were gestures of surrender. Yet their negative protest may bring some positive result. Both men were friendly to Russia. Both, though pro-democratic, were not anti-communistic. They were fair and reasonable and co-operative. Now MR- saryk is dead and Benes is finished. Their fate shows what happens when ft head of state "sit? down to talk things over with Stalin," but balks at surrender when surrender fs demanded. VIEWS OF OTHERS A Roof and a Floor Millions of Americans »re sill! acutely concerned with getting a decent roof over their fiends. They do not rend with pleasure the bottling U p of the Taft-Ellcnrter-Wnuner bill In congressional committee. Tills newspaper has never believed that lh« TEW bill is the Ideal solution to (lie undeniably appalling problem of housing. The "Ideal" solution, in (act. mu»t probably await the radical morternizatlcn of in «rch»tc building industry, perhaps along the lines of prefabrlcatlon. It may well require the Industrial and urban decentralization preached by Lewis Mumloid and already being carried out In some degree In Britain. But to drift along hopefully on a seller's market while millions of Americans double up with relatives or take refuge In trailers, slucks or Quonset huLs, and while Bluma tat out the heart of American cities. Is the only alternative offered to the TEW bill by its opponents, who label it "social- Ism.'' There is everything to be said !or keeping Federal interference in such matters as housing to the barest possible minimum. Yet those who cry socialism should lulk to Senator Taft. The public housing provisions ol his bill represent only nbout S per cent of Die annual construction it proposes. It would provide public housing only on a limited scale for the lowest-income groups, for which private enterprise has never been able to provide. Moreover, what its chief opponents tavor is -private- but not "hue" enterprise. They are anxious for Federal -iiUerlerciicc" so long as it provides a floor for the private builder, assuming his risks through government Insurance of mortgages at high Interest, rates, through the Home Loan Bank system, «tr. AS one of the leading spokesmen of the powerful real estate lobby puts In our country we preler lhat government activity shall take tne form ol assisting and aiding private business, ra ther than undertaka great public projects of a governmental character. The TEW bill accepts this philosophy to 3 degree which distresses the Iclt-wing planners, u chief benefits would so to private enterprise, but it would balance the cviarnntccing of private profits by some care for consumers' Interests particularly by Government action in fields' wlicrr private enterprise admittedly cannot meet the community's nccri TllE biu wc r( , lu , r!U( , , 5 not ideal, u , 5 , however, the only visible attempt to a roof for ihe consumer's head as well as a floor for the bunder's investment. -CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.

The most common studies carried out on the blood are of the red cells, the hemoglobin or coloring matter, and the while cells. Only tiny amounts of blood are necessary for these examinations. Usually i drop from the ear or finger is all lhat has to b« taken for this purpose. Cells Are Cnunlrd There are about 5.000,000 red cells in a. measured small amount of blood called a cubic millimeter. There are about 7000 white cells in the same amount of blood. These cells can be counted under a microscope. If the red cells are far below normal, anemia is present.
