Jessup 1 to fill the most important educational post : in the United States will be looked upon by 'many as the answer complete to those who have barked at his heels, feist-like, as he went about the task of building for Iowa a great university. But this will not be Doctor Jessup's attitude. Through all that barren fight against him, now almost forgotten, he never once stooped to the level of the attack. He never spoke ill of those who sought by all means known to them to besmirch his character. His forebearance under enormous provocation revealed him as big enough to do honor to this new responsibility to-which he has been called. To him, the transcendant appeal is the opportunity offered for enlarged service to mankind. Approaching the second phase of a fruitful and dynamic middle age, an independence from interference by his inferiors, could not but present an attractiveness to one's human impulses. But the scholar in President Jessup appraised this independence solely in terms of accomplishment for the advancement of education. He. sought no bed of roses. It's true that the remuneration wilt be of wages and the effect upon industrial production are all taken into account. On the other side of the account are the gains directly due to public health promotion. It is important to take into consideration the tremendous advances made by preventive medicine in checking disease and lengthening life. Public health agencies of the United States --state and national--operate on about $10,000,000 a year, oi 1 nine cents per capita, a small and inadequate sum compared with the average per capita income and the value of the results obtained. Compared with the allotments of public funds for other purposes, those for health purposes seem small. The common cold causes tremendous economic loss in the course of a year. Because it is so common, it is probably responsible for a large part of the eight .billions loss. And yet most colds are avoidable. The worker suffering from a cold is only about 50 per cent efficient, except as a menace to other workers. Employers who provide proper illumination, ventilation and heat for their employes save more than these cost. But this is preventive work they cannot expect public health agencies to do for them. DAILY SCRAP BOOK OTHER EDITORS 3O,OOO IM AH MACHINE. WHJT NOT KILL 'ESI ALT,? Ward Barnes in Eagle Grove Eagle: There is evident and pressing need of radical change in treatment of confirmed criminals. It is somewhat of a riddle how the custom ever originated of sentencing criminals to life imprisonment instead of death. The loading of the costly method of continuing their utterly useless lives upon the law-abiding taxpayers is so apparent an injustice it is a wonder it has been so long endured. Tt rnay well be asked why are their lives prolonged? What good results in any way to them or the world? They rebel against all restraints of law and order even in the penitentiaries, and will go to the extent of murder to escape. Upon what basis is the law and sentiment to keep them alive and saddle the immeasurable burden upon innocent, law-abiding citizens" What moral, or any justifying purpose is accomplished in prolonging these self-forfeited and utterly fruitless lives? Better that all life-term convicts be taken from our over-crowded penitentiaries, placed upon ships and sunk in the ocean. They have forfeited every human right to life.

Being a young man it seems there should be plenty of time for you to think about marriage without wanting a wife that has to help earn Lhe living. A wife's place is in the nome. When a married woman works she spends more money than she would if she were staying at home because she haa to have more and better clothes and, unless she makes a slave of herself she has to hire part of her work done. You will find these working wives are always looking for the cheapest help also.

This of itself, however, would not have drawn him away from Iowa for he has declined repeated offers which contained this appeal, at least one of these while the university was under legislative assault. Except for the expanded opportunity for service, Mr. Jessup would not be leaving Iowa. · -The physical plant of the university at Iowa P^iy is bui' thei'shell of the monument left by 'Doctor Jfessup. ""The really important and last-. : ing item bequeathed by* him "to the commonwealth was the zeal which he implanted in the hearts and minds of those about him to seek : after truth through the processes of intellectual honesty. He fanned the. spark, and always Tto a purpose. Mortar and clay may crumble but 'truth will live on. Walter A. Jessup has served Iowa with a lustrous distinction in his twenty-two years at Iowa City. He deserves, and will have, from every right-thinking citizen of this state a generous measure of gratitude and an earnest prayer of godspeed as he goes to his new post. Selection to carry on the work instituted and developed by such greatness as resided in Henry S. Pritchett and Henry Suzzallo is a handsome citation of Doctor Jessup's consecration to a noble cause. From this point on, the world is the stage for the play of his administrative and scholarly genius. MORE AUTOMOBILES MATERIALIZATION of the prediction being M made these days that the automobile industry will see an increase of a million and a half automobile sales in the year ahead would put thousands of men and women back to work. It might be the beginning of a new era of prosperity, as it was ten years ago for the industrial sections of the country. Production and sale of another million ami a half cars represents in dollars and cents .·5750000,000 and that represents business for every community in the United States. Part of evesy dollar spent for automobiles stays where the buyer earned that dollar, another part goes to the railroad or truck that delivered it, and the remainder upon arrival at the factory is divided into many smaller parts and distributed among stockholders living in every state, among factory workers and officials, among subsidiary mills producing parts, materials and accessories, and among the quarries and mines producing the materials and fuels going into the manufacture of automobiles. Nor does it end there. Every dollar spent for automobiles begets more dollars for the oil industry, for the rubber industry, for garages and garage constructioji, and for those varied enterprises which cater to the motoring public.' Just as the automobile industry, through its rapid'growth, played a major part in the building of our late, lamented prosperity, it might conceivably be the means of reclaiming those good times for us. Something like a repopu- larization of the automobile would do the trick STAGGERING LOSS . CTATISTICIANS of the United States Cham ^ ber of Commerce have computed the enor mous coat to the nation of ill-health and dis ease. They find these cause an economic los of $8,000,000,000 a year, an ever-recumnf waste more than double the expenditures o the federal government. To this great tola must be added the vast auras spent to climinat this loss.

Along came government operation when fares went up to more than 3 cents a mile with extra fares for Pullman trains and surtaxes on Pullman charges. Beginning Dec. 1 every railroad of consequence in the United States has VOLUNTARILY adopted a 2 cent rate along with lower deluxe train rates and reduced Pullman fares. It causes one to wonder If these great public utilities would not be in better financial shape today had the federal government kept hands off in 1917.

The only people whq can be more interested in seeing recovery postponed than In having it come under Roosevelt are the pie hunting republicans who hope for a return of fat jobs or gratuities with a change of administrations. What this country needs more than anything else Is a lot'of gorgeous funerals among the pinheads of both parties. A NEWSPAPER'S 1UGIIT Austin Herald: We are asked if a newspaper does not have to publish an advertisement, one that contains no objectionable matter. The courts have held "A newspaper is an ordinary business, as private as that of the baker, grocer or milkman. The publishers thereof have a right to publish whatever advertisements they desire and refuse to publish whatever advertisements they do not desire to publish.'' BUOOKHAUT AND JOHNSON COMI'AUED Imlmmil.'x Record: Difference between Smith Brookhart and Hugli Johnson Is that Brookhart knew what was wrong, but he didn't know how to do anything about it.

This is natural in a way, but as we saw in the articles for the past two days, the condition is so likely to be caused by constitutional changes in the* entire body from hypersensitiveness to common foods, that the dietary treatment is probably the most important clement in Its control. This dietary treatment was seen to be substitution of specially prepared foods for milk and egg feedings. The local treatment of the condition, however, cannot ne entirely ignored. Local applications serve to allay itching and prevent infee tion, and in many ways supplement the general constitutional treat ment. In some cases, of courae, the constitutional dietary treatment is . entirely unsuccessful, and in these Dr. Clcndcninc cases dependence must be placed upon the local applications alone. Most of the skin inflammation and irritation is due to secondary complications of the primary eczema In other words, it is due to scratching and to the in fection of the eczema so that pustular changes occur scabbing- and crusting, and all these can be treated by local applications. The first thing to be done is to get the skin as clean as possible. The mass of scabs, scales am crusts must be removed by swabbing with olive ot or liquid petrolatum and gauze. After this, boric oint ment is applied thickly until the red, acutely inflamcc surface, with or without oozing, is left. If there i much oozing the salve should not be used, as salve do not stick well to an oozing surface. A lotion which has been found useful in such case is Goulard's Extract (liquor of lead gubacetate U. S P.) and Burow's Solution (saturated solution of alum inum acetate) each one-half ounce tn six ounces o water.) After the oozing has been controlled by this lotion probably the beat local treatment for infantile eczem is the use of crude coal tar/ This Is put up in an oint ment with the following composition: Crude coal tar 2 drachms Zinc oxide * drachma Starch S drachms Vaseline '1 ounces If this causes irritation, half the amount of ta should be used, and tar never should be used if ther is pus in the eruption. Water has often been forbidden for use in these cases.. While it is not desirable for an acutely inflamed area, it is necessary to use it under certain circumstances and on certain parts of the body where filth may accumulate. There are some skins, even of infants, which do not stand water without considerable itching, and in these, of course, bathing must EARLIER DAYS lclne a Dally CompUallun of InlercMlns Ilcms from tho "Ten, TivenlJ and Tlllrlj- Veura AKU" I'Hw of IliO GUlbc-Gazetti.. vorce--working wives canse more divorces than anything else.

The event is scheduled for next Sunday night at the First M. B. church. My one regret Is that the community is not possessed of an auditorium large enough to accommodate all who will wish to sit in on the production. Tho armory, out- largest hall, is ruled out for lack of pipe organ and for its pronounced acoustic deficiencies. Using the Methodist church, the largest and most suitable place available, I predict there will be need for a second performance. All churches of the community should be, and I think are, back of this project sponsored by the music department of the Woman's club. No sermon could be quite so effective as the message of song contained in this oratorio. Somewhere recently I came upon a paragraph which told of the universal practice of rising, In aalute. when the Hallelujah chorus in the Handel "Messiah" is reached. The custom originated at Its London premier in 1743 when the king and his subjects were so thrilled that they arose in a body. This chorus Is to Christianity what the national anthem is to a country.

EDITORS MAIL BAG SMALL TOWNS GET THE SHORT END VENTURA, Den. 32.--It s.*ceni3 to me that there ia one source of income that has been sadly overlooked and that in my opinion would permanently end the depression and keep people employed. There are thousands of small towns in the United States that for years have paid fov public buildings and other improvements In the larger towns. The postage rate to all at present is 3c. The larger towns enjoy free mnil delivery and other things. The country dweller has free mail tcrvlce but the small town dweller has nothing. He has the privilege of going to the poatoffice to get his mail and pay his box rent. The postage rate is 3 cents to all. No one objects to the city malldelivery; no one oh- jects to rural mail delivery. But tell me why the small town dweller should not have the same privileges and have better postmasters than at present. Of course all this came about without malice, but why shouldn't it end now if postmasters were paid for the amount of business done instead of classing them. The nirai routes should he shortened lo give more people employment, .lust think of the many more persons who would be employed in carrying the mail than at present. Also many more employed in clerical work to' bring about this change and this would all be permanent with no additional cost to the taxpayer. Let be carefully supervised. In eczema on the scalp, the ointment most generally advised is boric ointment (TJ. S. P. No. 9), made without wax and rubbed and smeared very thickly over the scalp in the morning. After this a cheap cotton cap may be put over the head and left there for 24 hours. After five or six days of this treatment the scalp Is shampooed with mild white or castile soap. It is assumed that these treatments will be carried out under the general direction of a physician, but in most cases the physician will not see fit to make many changes in the instructions here presented. Inasmuch as most of the application and treatment of the cases is in the hands of the mother, and she may switch from one form of treatment to another if the disease changes, these suggestions are presented in the hope of giving her a clear reason for the use of the various preparations.
