In their long range significance they may be of vast importance. For one of the postulates of the Chamberlain policy toward the dictators has been an implicit fear, distrust and dislike of soviet Russia. Anything, the British lories have felt, was better than admitting Stalin's Russia into western Europe. If possible, it was felt, a conflict between Russia and Germany might be arranged which would weaken both powers. And in any event nazi domination of eastern Europe would supply an insulation for the western side of the continent against the Russian infection. That Britain and Russia are in a deal to check Hitler thus signifies a right-about-face. The reasons for this reversal are not far to seek- Hitler was supposed to be tethered by the Munich agreement and his public promises to an Same fellow who once remarked that taxes are P K ld * b J the s. we at o' the brow now is worried about the 45 billion debUimit for United States The old family album contains nothing more humorous tnan can be seen on Fifth a v e n u e t o day--or maybe even Federal avenue.

Anyway, she tries and experiments, and there is confusion for a time. An old formula, gracious- Dr. - _ Doctor Engel's book is a very sound exposition or wellrbalanced dieting for the purpos» o£ reducing. He emphasizes the value ol vitamins and minerals in a well-balanced diet and points out particularly that these should be included in any diet which is meant for reducing. Some of his epigrams, to which I do not entirely subscribe, are as follows: "Cream gives you bright eyes" 'Raw carrots freshen your skin" "Steaks make beautiful legs and shapely arms " ·Starches and sugars keep fats happy at their work." * "*vu* a' meir "Cheese soothes the nerves.'' Celery builds the bones." "Eggs prevent brittle nails." Another book is called Oh, Doctor! My Feet! by Dr. Dudley J. Morton. This contains what seem? to me some very good advice, which is not entirely the same as that found in other books on the feet especially the question of fallan metatarsal archeo.' For many years it has been thought that such an arch extends across the foot'between the first front ends of the first and fifth long bones of the Doctor Morton breaks with this idea and has a number ot interesting things to say about arch supports, shoemen and shoes, which I will take un in articles later. v tion, fay Dr. J.

Unfriendly Deed "love my friends too much to send them a letter with a threat in it to the effect that if they do not send out five letters immediately they will lose all they have," writes Mrs. I. C. Hodin of Chicago. Within a week she had received five identical letters along that line. "I£ more people," she concluded, "have me on their sucker list, they may just as well save their postage, because I can't be bothered." Mrs. Rodin throws a new light on the friendship angle Involved This much can be said: Nobody who is a true friend and average intelligent at the same time would be guilty of such an inconsiderate act as passing along a chain letter. The appeal of the chain letter Idea, of course, is primarily to those who are ruled by ignorant superstition. The Courteous Driver ^ a m obliged to Lee Bailey sfor a little safety preachment, out. of which the following is drawn: "The courteous driver is the better driver. He invariably shows his driving ability by adopting good road habits. "" e . always gets into position well before turning. If he plans to make a right turn, he pulls over into the lane nearest the right curb or roadside and signals well in advance. He approaches tne turn slowly and makes if sharply. "JdivKs it "When approaching a left turn, he pulls ,nto the lane nearest the center of the road and gives the proper signal before he reaches the corner. "He respects the rights of other motorists, keeping over on the right-hand side of the road and always leaving plenty of room lor oncoming and passing traffic. Before overtaking a car- he makes sure that he has plenty o£ room to pull out of line and to get Back again with ease and safety He gives warning signals with his horn but never uses it unnecessarily. "When traveling at 40 miles an h £ ur .°" the open road he keeps about five car lengths behind the vehicles ahead--and more when traveling faster.

OBSERVING Scotty's Disgust ^^^ lind it quite easy to under- I^HE stand and to sympathize %B^ with Death Valley Scotty's disgust. He's a tough hombre in his battles with hard nature. The nas^ tier nature is, the better he likes it. His idea ot a perfect time has been sitting out in the sun in a temperature of 120, with the only possible shade the flapping wings of the vultures hungrily circling overhead. But let Scotty tell his own story of torment and misery: '·Death Valley's gone to hell. It didn't uster give you no grace. I wolved out its traps. I fought the devil with, fire, and fire, water. Snakes bit and Injuns shot me. But them days is gone. It's a government park now. They wheel in there with baby carriages. You cain't sit down in the rocks without a ranger at your elbow. They even taught the Injuns to use powder puffs." Tough on Scotty, inured to hardship, out in the open in wind and sun, joyously holding his rendezvous with snakes and injuns the pesky old critter finds himself with a castle on his hands in Death Valley, a castle which cost 2% million dollars, which he wants to sell. The government has made life too soft for him. --o-In Appreciation ; suspect there are a good many others--in fact I've seen proof of it--who feel toward Fred Shaffer's weekly bird feature exactly as the writer of the following note: '·Bird Editor: "I am interested in your articles and I wish you would continue them I am a Girl Scout and your articles help me in my work very "Evelyn Auspin."

While John W. Deering, a convicted slayer, stood before a firing squad in Salt Lake City, his heart action was recorded by an electro- cardograph film. The heart beat jumped from a normal of 72 to 180 and maintained that during the several minutes required to complete preliminaries for the execution. When Deering was asked for a last statement, his heart beat fluttered wildly, then calmed after he spoke until bullets ended his life. The heart beat stopped 15 6 seconds after the latal bullet was fired, but Deering was not pronounced dead until 2'.i minutes after the shots. Define chemurgy. C. B. The word is derived from the Greek words "chemi" meaning chemistry and "ergon" meaning work.
