E D I T O R I A L S -- ! Courage the Virtue, Kindness the Joy A FTER 11 years of conducting a column called "Everyday Living," Dr. Joseph Fort Newton, former Cedar Rapids clergyman who went on to an enlarged field in the east, has been compelled to abandon his daily writings. "You must abandon either your church work or your column," his doctor told him. The strain of the .two had become too heavy. Properly he elected to continue his church responsibility. /VIE of his old Cedar Rapids *-' neighbors in a personal letter to us about Doctor Newton and his work wrote: "I cannot tell you how much it has meant to me to have enjoyed intimate friendship with this man since 1908. We could not expect to have a clergy possessing his genius, but if we could have one which approximated its spirit, what a difference it would make! "In the 8 years I heard him whenever I was in town, I never heard him preach anything but the Gospel. He never so much as referred to any pseudo-political economy, so-called social science, etc. Nor has he ever written anything that touched upon these things, except perhaps in his life of Lincoln.and Herndon. Though his father was a confederate soldier, he was a worshiper of Lincoln and has written much about him. "I shall miss these daily talks, EO intimate, so sweet, so wise-but I shall hear from him now and then. I hope he fully recovers and that sometime he can return td his writing, where he reached hundreds of thousands every day, whereas in the pulpit he reached only hundreds-once a week." AS AN index to the inspiring *V philosophy which Doctor New- ion .down through the years has preached from his church and newspaper pulpit, we dip into his "sign off' of "Everyday Living" lor the following: "My message has been very simple. To live well we must have a Jaith to live by, a self fit to live with, and a work fit to live for-something to which we can give ourselves, and thus get ourselves off our hands. "We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strange medley of life. But we can decide what happens in us, and that is what counts. How to take life and make it a thing worth while--that is the real test of living. "Courage is the first virtue, as kindness is the final joy. To take life for granted, grudgingly, is to spoil it, whereas to take it for gratitude, bravely and without fear, is to enjoy it, despite all its aches and ills. To be happy is easy enough if we give ourselves, forgive others, and live with thanksgiving. No self-centered person, no ungrateful soul can ever be happy, much less make anyone else happy. Life is giving, not getting. "To live is an adventure of faith, if we are to be victors over life, not victims of it. Faith in God above us, faith in the little infinite soul within us, Jaith in our fellow men--without faith we cannot live. "To all my readers I send greetings and good wilL Hope much, fear not at all, love with all your heart, do your best,-seek the best in others, and trust the veiled kindness of the Father of man, in whose great hand we stand. "Many things change, but now abidcth the faith that makes us faithful, the love that makes us merciful, and the hope that defeats defeat. 'God bless us every one.'" Did You Know? By Frederic J.

TREATMENT OF GLANDS AN acquaintance stopped me on the street to tell me he did not agree'with my remarks about the limited usefulness of the ductless gland extracts in the treatment of abnormal children. He has a child that has been under endocrine treatment for 4 years'showing quite a little improvement. He says it take time for these gland extracts to work. The first 3 years his child was under treatment there wasn't any improvement at all, but during the last year it was marked. When I asked him whether that might not be due to natural growth and maturity, he was sure it wasn't. I turn for support of my views to the article on ductless gland therapy in the very latest text book of medicine to be published. Different authors write the various chapters, so one may be assured that the man who wrote this one is the best and most experienced in his field. Under the heading "What Isn't Endocrinology" he says there are 3 groups of patients often brought to the endocrinologist who should Contrast in 2 Years Boone News-Republican: Little did Berliners dream 2 years ago that the day would come when they would be subjected to the same thing the Londoners were getting then.

That isn't a good omen. We came down to the end of ^ s t year with a saving of 84 lives over the previous year. Much of hat, however, is accounted for by he fact that for a considerable part of 1942, there hadn't been a drastic reduction of speed and for a part of the year gasoline ration- ng wasn't operative. This year the comparison is going to be on terms of near equality. What difference there is ought to favor this year. A 35 mile speed limit was in force throughout 1943, as it is now. Gasoline rationing until summer last year was on a 4-gallon-a-week basis unti" summer. This year it will be on a 3-gallons-a-week basis for A books. This will mean some slight reduction in the total miles travelec this year. At least a few cars too have been taken out of circulation b e c a us e . they're "over-age." These factors, however, are somewhat counter-balanced by the general deterioration of all auto mobiles because they are a year Ider., E v e r y t h i n g considered, this ·ear's safety record in Iowa and hroughout the country ought to ie at least as good as last year's. That's what disturbs me in the howing for these first 2 weeks of 944. --V-Camps for British Youth gather from the following little squib from the London Sunday Dispatch that Britain, like our own country, Is jiving some serious attention to iie post-war youth problem: 'State-owned holiday camps for the special use of the younger jeneration in big towns and cities would place the health of the future mothers and fathers on a sound footing.

Reminder of War ENGLAND'S ministry of home *-* security in its review of 1943 reports that 2,347 civilians were killed and 3,421 seriously injured by enemy air raids in the first 11 months of last year. This is but a slight reduction from Britain's air raid casualties of 3,112 killed and 3,948 wounded in 1942. Sneak raids still account for almost daily casualties in England's coastal to\vns and the midlands. Here in America, air raid protection has been virtually disbanded, hut England has not relaxed its vigilance. Night and day the British civil defense services continue in full operation, with fire guards, air raid spotters, radar screening, and auxiliary services working full time. Luftwaffe raids on Britain are now small-scale, hit-and-run attacks, but even these nazi nuisance bombings have taken a serious toll of life.

TJITLER has saved us the neces- ^* sity of trying Count Galeazzo Ciano. DNB reports insist that Mussolini's swashbuckling son-in- law was shot by a firing squad at Verona, along with 4 other members of the old fascist grand council--Marshal EmDio De Bono, Giovanni Marinelli, Carlo Faraschi and Luciano Gottardi. These 5 had bumped Benito off his balcony last July. When the fascist knighthood was in flower, Ciano was the toast of Borne. For all his neat uniforms and glittering decorations, he was a greasy little grafter, who made the most of his marriage to Kdda Mussolini. He was fascism's crooked foreign minister. The ruthless way Hitler firing squads have rubbed out fascist "traitors" like Count Ciano will give rise to new Russian demands drome, whereas he is just a fat boy, whatever that is. If left alone he will develop normally and cease to be fat after puberty. Second is the child who does not do well in school. There is a feeling among would-be progressive educators that such a situation demands a survey by an endocrinologist. There is only one endocrine abnormality which leads to mental retardation and that is cretinism, or congenital absence of the thyroid gland. This will respond to thyroid feeding, but to be successful it has to be done during the first few weeks or months of life. And obviously the diagnosis can not be made at this period on the basis of mental retardation because the baby hasn't enough, mental life to evaluate clinically. And if the parents and doctor wait until the full-blown picture of cretaism develops--the frog baby, with heavy countenance, protruding lips, thick skin, lack of growth, pot belly, insecure posture, delayed dentation and sluggish reactions--it is too late for thyroid; the damage is done. The condition should be spotted by the obstetrician or pediatrician during the first weeks of life. One hint for diagnosis is a persistent navel hernia. Third, loss of hair, whether it be plain baldness or the spotty loss of hair known as alopecia acreata.

They have nothing to do with loss of hair. A bald man will get just as much good from ductless gland treatments as he will from a barber rubbing snake oil in his scalp-which in both instances is no good at all. Questions and Answers L.

Beck in Centerville lowegian: Whatever one's opinion of Wendell Willkie as a republican and a presidential candidate may be, he is entitled to fair treatment. That he has not had in the book, "One Man-Wendell Willkie." Writing in the Boston Herald Bill Cunningham says that seldom have more errors of fact ever been packed into a like number of words. ' The book tells of a dinner in New York attended by Glen Frank in which certain men of wealth were seeking for a candidate. The dinner, says Cunningham, was never held. It tells of loans made by'Lament to the Cowles newspaper interests which were never made. The writer finds flaring misrepresentations all through the book. He points out their. absurdity measured by the facts.
