Whenever did a kin- a dictator, or a president employ a staff to tell hinT'how punk his ideas are? This, surely, is not for Hitler of blood and iron. And, just consider the generous possibilities of one of these conferences for criticism. It is Hitler himself speaking: "Gentlemen, I have just come to the conclusion that we will burn all of the remaining volumes of 'All Quiet on the Western Front.' " "First Critic: You can't do that, Mr. Chancellor. The reaction against the government's last burning was unfavorable. There are a great many German people who believe the book is the finest literary contribution of the present century." Chancellor: "Who says I can't? The word can't disappeared when Hitler appeared. Just to show them who's boss around here, we'll not only burn all of the volumes, but I shall instruct my people they are to read a book I shall write shortly. Gentlemen, the conference is over."

WE PRINTERS LIVE RIGHT! rv SELF-SUFFICIENT NATION REDICTION of Robert E. Wood, president of a great merchandising house, before the commission oÂ£ business research that the future of this country demands a self-sufficient nation not dependent upon imports from any other country, contains an idea that is taking root in the minds of many thinking persons who are studying present world economic conditions. General Wood said that as long as there is the present wide disparity between the standards of living of this country and other nations of the world, we shall tend more and more to self-sufficiency. General Wood said the British Isles and western Europe will figure less and less each year in. the .export trade, and that their problem will be to locate their population where it may be self-sustaining, rather than the exportation of manufactured goods. Each year, according to General Wood, adds eyi- _ HOGS'. Esthervillc NewsT Henr?

General Wood's warning indicates how careful we must be in regard to any legislation lowering our tariffs. As General Wood says, business obtained through the lowering of living standards will never aid our nation. He is right in his prediction that this country will remain upon its present standards, and not allow the lower standards of other nations to force us to different living ideas. We shall remain a self-sufficient nation, rather than allow our people to be brought to lower standards of living. IMAGINED ILL MOST TROUTBLE M Y OLD FRIEND, Dr. Adrian Gibbs, said, "When we do a certain thing, do we ask ourselves if the deed is actuated by reason and logic or by an emotional impulse?" , . . To analyze the acts of man on this basis brings out the answer to many peculiar behaviorisms, The problem is a very important one because so much illness is not organic in the sense that some part of the body actually is diseased, but because the individual is highly emotional or imaginative, and develops a firm conviction that some part of the anatomy is deranged. Thus we see numerous examples of nervous indigestion, nervous headache, nervous backache, weakness, loss of appetite, insomnia, numbness, and many other quite familiar and common symptoms, develop to such a state of importance that Dr. Clendenlnir y^ individual becomes completely study of the symptoms Â«|d a pataB- taking examination fails to reveal any abnormality whatever, yet the patient continues to complain and doctor to another In search of_ health.

According to figures just prepared, the per capita consumption f milk has Increased about 10 per cent in the past 10 years and now amounts to 40 gallons a year, or about nine-tenths of a pint to the Individual daily. Per capita consumption of butter amounts to 18 pounds a year, which is less than in several foreign countries--the Canadians and Australians consume over 29 pounds a year, New Zealanders 34.1 pounds, while the consumption in England, Sweden and Germany is likewise ahead of that in the United States. The Swiss people are the greatest cheese caters in the world. They consume about 16 pounds per person a year as compared with 1'1 pounds in Holland, 10 pounds in England, Germany and France, anil only 4.5 in the United States. However, in the last decade, cheese consumption in this country increased over 30 per cent although it still amounts to less than a fifth of an ounce a day.

In other words, the wise physician knows that the seriousness of the disease Is often manifested in indirect ratio to the multiplicity and vociferousness of the complaints. For example, if a person of the extreme nervous type suddenly becomes numb over one-half of the body: has a very rapid heart; extreme difficulty In breathing; presents a very anxious appearance and cries out vociferously for help because of a fear of intended to relieve distress is beyond the comprehen- j _ wag Djllin?er wor king on a CWA or PWA project sion of most citizens.

Sincere indeed was the applause from the three or four hundred brother editors and publishers as these four nominations were announced by Prof. F. L.

Yet this sort of picture is not infrequent, and may be induced entirely by a functional disorder of the nervous system or, more correctly, by a disorder of the emotional centers. Again, if a person of the same type loses desire for food, refuses to eat enough to maintain body weight and as a result of this becomes greatly emaciated, weakened, anemic, and presents a clinical picture of some very grave organic disease, it would require considerable medical knowledge and experience to believe the entire matter could possibly be caused by a simple physiological disturbance of the emotional centers. Yet these things are true. The pictures are not overdrawn; in fact, a physician encounters them frequently, and is often accused of indifference, callousness or inefficiency when he refuses to become excited and stampeded into doing something which might make the poor nervous patient worse.

The bureau of standards reports a radium detector has been perfected but is not for use in finding radium deposits in the earth.

You are strong for the he man stuff which, you think, denotes physical strength and unusual mentality. How you reach such conclusions is not easy to comprehend. If you hold a position of even a little authority, you go beyond its limits in your dealings with those under you. Unreasonable demands and harsh censorship of those who do not please you are your way of expressing authority on your job. You are strong for the "bawling out" system to get people under you "on their toes." You are particularly severe with the novice in your department. You growl at him, sneer at his efforts and ridicule his training. It seems to be your desire to belittle him as much as possible. Such tactics show that it must have been hard to whip you Into a position where your services were of much value. . . That it was necessary to be severe with you is indicated by your present attitude toward others. 1626--Francis Bacon, aged 65, who didn't write Shakespeare's plays, but who was one of the greatest j geniuses in history, died in what may have been the first experiment in cold storage. He was engaged in stuffing fowls with snow to observe the effect of cold in preserving their flesh when he contracted bronchitis. He died two weeks later, was saved by friends from a pauper's grave.
