IOWA'S MEDICAL COLLEGE part o£ the campaign against the college of medicine at the University of lowu is more inexcusable than the inference being- bandied about that Iowa hasn't a Glass A medical school, or that its standing as such is jeopardized by leaving it at Iowa City. A minority x-eport recently submitted following a study of the indigent patient situation went afield to suggest limiting medical instruction at Iowa City to the first two years of a course, letting the "last two or three be taken elsewhere, for the reason that no city in the state of Iowa, other than Des Moines, has Che environment essential to the clinical years of a Class A medical college." To quote again: "Located at Iowa City and Des Moines, it can be put just wliere the board oE education and the administration of the university would have it, not large but meritorious, and somewhere in the front rank of medical colleges in '· the United States." Intentionally or unintentionally, the makers of this report have been guilty of a gross misrepresentation. Nobody could read what is written without inferring that the college of medicine at the University of Iowa is a second rater. Note that the quoted matter has these phrases, "can be put" and "somewhere in the front rank of medical colleges." There's an unmistakable implication that Iowa's college isn't already "in the front rank." The simple truth is that Iowa has been a Class A medica] college for a long time and is 1 at this moment a Class A school, as .-""wealed by a check-up made by this writer with lue educational · committee of the American Medical tliB past ·week. Moreover, "there'isn't the slightest reason to believe this top-ranking can be jeopardized by anything other than legislative interference, through the medium of curtailed clinical material or circumscribed teaching staff. It is significant in this connection that Dr. Mayo of Rochester should survey the entire field of medical colleges and decide upon Iowa as the training place for a son he wished to have equipped to carry on for him at his famous clinic. The legislature is within its rights, in insisting upon an economical administration of the college of medicine, as well as the other units that make up the University of Iowa. There will be applause for measures which really cut off undeserving beneficiaries from state-financed medical treatment. But there must be a commonsense realization that a great college has been built up at Iowa City with superb plant, equipment and staff ready to serve and do honor to the people of Iowa, No course is open except to maintain this institution at the highest possible standard. received in repayment of policy loans up to Nov. 1. Every element.in this report, which probably would be simulated by other insurance companies, contains its definite note of encouragement. A NEEDED SERMON /"IREAT'BRITAIN was given a sermon by an American living in the American colony in England, which that proud nation will probably not soon forget. Upon receiving a demand for a British income tax, the American wrote a letter to the British ministry saying he would pay upon the same terms and with the same money, thai England is now making paltry payments on its debt to the United States. In his letter, tin; American said, "I am prepared to make a token payment of 10 per cent in silver at 50 cents an ounce." The British ministry lias not yet answered the letter. It was certainly a pertinent criticism of Great Britain's failure to meet definitely fixed payments on a loan which was extended to that country at time of great need. "Deadbeat" is still the word that best describes those nations which let their interest- paying date roll by without so much as a "sorry we can't pay" note to Uncle Sam. OTHER EDITORS Even though there may be a thin disguise, there is present in this situation a manifestation of the capital city's insatiable appetite for more state funds, more of the Iowa taxpayer's dollar. The state house and all of its allied agencies isn't enough. There must be a correction of the error made by early legislatures in not placing every institution at Des Moines. Unless the Des Moines viewpoint, inimical to the university's interest, gains a foothold in the legislature, Iowa is destined to continue on the top rung along with Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Rush and the best medical schools of America. IT LOOKS 'GOOD ATOBODY could read the business report of one large insurance company, for 1933 up to Nov. 1, without feeling that a general pickup of business is definitely under way. To dip into it for a moment: Five thousand more applications had been received than during the same 10 months of 1932 and more applications had been received in 10 months this year than in the entire year of 1932. The number of applications received in 1933 will probably establish an all-time record for the company in question. Settlement option agreements were included in 14,214 policies in the first 10 months of this year as compared to such agreements in 8,709 policies in the entire year 1929. That's a monthly average of 700 a month in 1929 as compared to 1,400 a month this year. New premiums, exclusive of annuities, show an increase of 18.84 per cent over same period of 1932. Kenewal premiums were only 2.68 per cent behind 1932 as of November 1 in spite of bank moratoria, lapses, surrenders, etc. Policy loans a month are now only 30 per cent of what they wore in January and Febrti- nry. Moreover, outstanding policy loans are .000 less in number and $1,128,000 had been SMAT^t, TOWN STUFF Kiwanis Itriiguzlne: The highest compliment ever paid Kiwanis was some big Iwo man's remark that it was small town .stuff. Kiwanis uau bow in humble thankfulness that something like three-quarters of its clubs are in towns of less than 10,001) inhabitant. George Mitchell answers the question "What is the small town?" by saying that it is a place where everybody isn't three months behind on their installments where the offices are filled with native born Americans, where the wild life which slays out all iii belongs to Ihe cat family, where the way of the transgressor is hard, where the traffic cop calls you "Bill' 1 instead of "Hey, you!" where tho editor gels result; if he announces that he is out of potatoes, and where people can tell all about one another by seeing Ihe family wash out on the line. He might have lidded t h a t Die small town is the place where the leaders of the city world are bred am groomed. A list of the big men born ill small towns would take up too much space, but Woolwortli, Do- tterty, Chrysler, Ford, Eastman, Kdison, the Wright brothers, Whitney, McCormick, Franklin, Fulton Morse and Lindbergh are but a few of the well known names of small town people who went to the big city and taught it things it did not know. Will Rogers, Rudy Vallce, Amos and Andy, Ca. Coolidge and President Roosevelt arc others born ant bred in the small town and brought upon "smal town stuff," whatever that is. Al Capone was a city bred man. Why does 50 per cent of America, which consti tutes the small town area, produce 95 per cent of il leaders? What is there about this small town sluf which breeds statesmen, inventors, showmen, mcr chant princes and industrial 'magnates? WHEN IS ILIQUOK NOT LIQUOR? "University ot Iowa Dully lowan: If aii editor of an American newspaper should mount a soap bos an announce to his audience that a cannon' Is not a can non In the United States because the Kellogg' pact out laws war, the general consensus of opinion woul probably be that the editor was "Icidding" his hearers Yet the same newspapers consider it perfectly leg itimate to carry under their liquor advertising a no tiee: "This advertisement is not to be construed as r solicitation in Ihosc slates where advcrlls'ing of liquo is illegal." The reasoning is analagotia. The assiimplion is tha the advertising of hard liquor will have no effect iu dry stales because congress decreed that it shall no be permitted. But. obviously, iu order to eliminate the effect o such advertising, all the readers in dry states wouk have to be blinded to prevent their reading the ads. Some metropolitan papers, a bit more conscientious have done away with the necessity of using such scheme by printing two editions, one to go to we states, with the liquor ads eliminated in the dry atat edition. Perhaps the recent ruling of the attorney general' office that the Reed provision Is unenforceable ' put an end to the need for such childish subterfuge a telling readers that liquor advertising is not liquo advertising when congress says it isn't. ·PROTECT EGGS AND BUTTER Iowa Falls Citizen: Eggs and butter are the Bourc of "bread and butter" money for countless number* of Iowa farm families.

BODY NEEDS HEALTHFUL START iXJTH properly has been called "the decisive age." ·I Much oC any person's future health and happiness depends upon, the start which the body gets at this time. What a person does Lo himself after the age of 30 is not very likely to influence his length of life or health. There are, of course, a few exceptions to this, but not many. Certainly there can be no doubt that the hygiene of youth is more important than the hygiene of any other period of life. In infancy and early childhood the most important ways to insure future health, are, first, to acquire immunity to the infectious diseases which, we can prevent. These are smallpox, diphtheria and typhoid fever, and vaccination against these diseases is the first health rule. Probably the second most important health rule in early life is to insure against any deformities Dr. ClendcninR TOO MUCH FOR JOWA TO PAV Wehsler City Freeman-Journal: The bill declares it to be the public policy that all traffic in intoxicating liquors (beer not included) should be vested in a system of stores owned and operated by the state under a liquor control commission of five with salaries of 53,500 annually, but the liquor control administration would receive from 57,500 to 510,000 per year, which is entirely too much to pay in times like these and is more than the governor gets. of the body. Most important of all in this respect is to prevent the development of rickets. Rickets is a disease exclusively of childhood, ami consists in the lack of proper hardening of the bones due to the deposit of lime sails aiid phosphorus. It this ia not attended lo, the bones may become twisted and misshapen, sometimes to a shocking degree. Bow legs, knock knees, swollen wrists and twisted arms are all possible with the development of rickets. Fortunately, it is an easy disease to prevent. Tile lime salts and phosphorus arc laid down in the bones, due to the action of a substance called vitamin D which is present in certain foods. The average American dietary probably does not contain sufficient vitamin D, and for that reason it is advised that substances which would ordinarily not be part of th diet, such as cod liver oil, halibut liver oil and salmon liver oil be deliberately added to the infantile diet Au artificial form of vitamin D is "Viosterol, which Is a vegetable oil in which vitamin D has been developed by exposure to ultra-violet ray or sunlight. Exposure to sunlight is the natural way in whicl: vitamin D is formed in the body. Rickets is a disease which is noted particularly in the clinics and physicians' offices in the spring. Anc this seasonal incidence Is due to the fact that during the winter months sufficient exposure to sunlight if- likely to be reduced. Therefore, get the children ou in the sun as much as possible. Even on cloudy day? they will get some exposure because "skyline," as i is called on a cloudy day, will have .some power Ii this direction. QUESTIONS FROM HEADERS IT.

EDITOR'S MAIL BAG WOULD CLEAR CLARK WITH PRORE CLKAR LAKE, Dec. 20.--It seems to me that the editorials of the Mason City Globe-Gazette and Earl Dean's vote against an investigation of the state insurance department might be doing Ed Clark an injustice. Since Mason City is the home of both Ed Clark and the M, B. A. the rest of the state might gel. the idea that there has been something In the affairs of tlie state insurance department that ISd Clark's friends think had better not be exposed. Wouldn't it he lairer to both Ed Clark and the people of Iowa to welcome an invealigation and not leave such accusations as have been made; by Governor Herrimf and others to go unchallenged. WARREN KISNEK. ONCE OVERS tly J. ·!. M U N H Y ..... YOUR CHILD'S OPINION Have you even thought bow you impre.sa you children? Do you realize that your children are studying yo 1 and making deductions that may be far from what yo imagine constitutes their impressions of y o u ? With a child's limited vocabulary it might be har lo express in words what he thinks of your motives an your actions. But the thought, the action, and a child's interpre tation are vivid. Parents are very often surprised at how they hav been misunderstood. Sometimes the child's interpretation of the par ents' action is truer than anything that the parent could offer to excuse themselves. And the worst of H is that the false impression of childhood are very oflen lasting. As people grow older they become more and mor sophisticated and less and less able to see the plai unvarnished truth about themselves. Child language may be inadequate, but chiidre instinctively read the parent's mind. They are not critical--they may only accept con ditlons as true. But they do not forget impressions and a-s the grow older, they learn to know the answer to tl things they have observed but could not understan in early years. Be sincere with children--whatever you do--ai: they respect you. (Copyright, JD33, Klnfi Fcaturcn Syndicate, Inc.)
