He is a farmer and, living in the middle west, knows the problems of the farmer. That he is fearless is evident from his previous and his present distinguished war service. He is a loyal citizen and stands for good government. "Since MacNider possesses the attributes referred to, and the electorate would welcome a man possessing these ideals, all found in one man, it would be an easy matter to sell him to the public. In fact, he-needs no selling--just put him in the picture and the people will accept him." All of this activity in General MacNider's behalf is proceeding while he recovers from severe wounds wrought by a Jap grenade in distant New Guinea. His primary interest, as all who knoiv him appreciate, is getting back into the thick of the fight. That is the kind of general he is.

"NEW" KIND OF PNEUMONIA 'Our Mother" _ 4 received the other day an ^.envelope literally covered, f r o n t a n d back, w i t h stamps. It was an air mail--"par avion"--letter from Dwane Roy Dreher of the U. S. navy, posted in November from a Persian gulf port. In it was a verse written in tribute to "Our Mother." This was the carrying note accompanying it: "Being unable to be home on Mother's day, I am in the hopes that you might dedicate this to my dear mother on that day." Well, Mother's day is still a long \yay in the future. I'm taking the liberty, therefore, of passing along the verse at this time: We ill kn.w thai Ihtre Jj jrai«« Which i« freely flveo, Ol bc.Uly. of ollbl J»d a,yj, And the Joy «[ Uvlnc.

Incidentally glass-making is said to be America's oldest industry. From government blueprints has come another important weapon for winning the war -- standardization. For the duration, at least housewives will be seeing their favorite products in simplified form--thirteen standardized sizes for jars, ten standard sizes for bottles. SAVt MAHPOVYIR fOH WftRPOVitK known as "handi-quarts," lias been reduced five ounces, catsup bottles weight lias been reduced 25 pounds per gross. These are lypieal examples. New standardized bottles and jars will have smaller openings or closures to help save, on rubber, metal and other war essentials. Metal consumption alone will be reduced 20 to 40 per cent. Already housewives are seeing glassed fruits, vegetables, coffee, corn syrup, molasses, floor polish and furniture polish in abundance. Now cooking oils are being glassed and scores of other products are rapidly being converted to glass packages. Glass, which requires no vital war materials, is soldiering on the home front and (he war front. .-The -- IDAYS BOUQUE To HERMAN M.

What the future holds for him^of course, is not predictable. For one thing, nobody knows for sure that the war will be ended by nomination time next year and it's our guess that if the choice lay between war service and politics. General MacNidcr would not be slow in choosing the former. But it is certain that Americans will not be found ^appreciative of the kind of citizenship exhibited by this distinguished lowan in both peace and war. * * * Books for Fighting Men ANNOUNCEMENT of a 'second Victory Book ** campaign emphasizes once more the demand for new, instructive, recreational reading matter by America's fighting forces.

This form of pneumonia has been named virus pneumonia I and has been known to the I medical profession for several I years. It is not particularly dif- Iferent from other forms of pneumonia except that the germs which are present in the other forms are not found in | the virus pneumonia cases. In one epidemic all the cases I occurred in infants secondary ' to whooping cough and measles. Dr. Clendenine In another series of cases occurring in adults, the disease was characterized by a racking cough, little or no sputum, high fever and a slow pulse, x-ray shadows which were out of all proportion to what was found by the stethoscope, and a prolonged course terminating by slow fall of temperature. The patients are left very weak, but only about four deaths have been reported to date. In fact, only about one out of ten patients becomes critically ill, most of them running a fairly mild course. If the cat transmission idea is correct, this will be the second kind of pneumonia which we have encountered in recent years, transmitted by pet animals to human beings. The first was psittacosis, or parrot fever, which was prevalent several years ago and undoubtedly was transmitted^from pet parrots who became sick with ; harge, cough and fever and transmitted ca P aclt y to a ABOUT BOOKS By John Selby Weight of quart milk bottles, DID YOU KNOW?
