Culture in America The most musical city in the United States supports no symphony orchestra, has no opera season. It is \M 1'orte, a little factory lown in northern Indiana which, according to George Kng- les, manager of 1'mlen', Kreisler, McCormack and other famous artists, buys more concert tickets in proportion to its population than any other city in the country. Second in appreciation of music, according to Mr. Kiigbs, is Helena, Ark., sawmill, cotton and "seaport" town. If patronage of the arts is a mcas-. ure of civilization, culture in America appears to have reached it's highest, or at least its most democratic development not in such cast coast centers of self-accepted Bnihmiiis, intellectuals and aristocrats as Huston, New York and Charleston, but in the raw interior exploited as the homo of yokclry and Habbittry.

BY KODNEY DUTCIIEU NEA Service Writer WASHINGTON—One thins about Hoover commission is that they doii'i get out of hand. They remain Hoover commissions lo the end. The histoiy of the Woods unemployment commiltcu, appointed in counccllou with the yreat- problam of joblessness, has been somewhat Ihe coinmltlc: that although courtesy lo Hie prcsidcul demanded thai they hold their tongues while sill' servmt', tlierc was no reason whj they shouldn't speak their minds alter retirement, using any Information they had acquired here. ' Sidu-Step Compirisuns In the last few weeks all that was heard from Woods was occasional announcomcms of large sums being devoted to construction In the country. These were conspicuously unaccompiiniKl by com- 'parativc figuros for similar period" :lnsl year. The Department of 'Comniiirce's bureau of public con- analagons to lhat of Ihc Wicker- function had surveyed new govenv- sham commission, created' prlmari-Y-incnt construction a few month), ly as a means of dealing with the I'"* 0 nll d, despite all the ballyhoo troublesome prohibition issue. ^hcrc had been about wal sort oil Mr. Hoover's enemies aro found j'l'"™' i'^.L^t'^hc rc'r'lt w'as'wUh- char ( ;Ing that both were established ' h H^ bv Wliue Hoiis- order The only as political smokescreens and j ^L^ ™ "?. fibres to'' that the president subsequently 1111- ; s p " ° for' cuts.' Thus If one cals eclatln and supplcmciitf it wilh oilier irotcln substances which provide hree other protein isiiistitucnts, ic will not suffer from nutritional disturbances which he does suf- er when eating gelatin alone. * •• • The protein of mill:, which is called casein, supplies most ol he constituents called umlno iclds, and therefore life can IK naintalncd satlsMctorlly far onger on a diet consisting largely mtlk than it could on a diet 01 gelalin. Because of Ihe relationships ol hesc proteins to the maintenance )f life, they have been listed by he biochemists according to their jiologlc value. Thus the proteins of milk are at the top and those meat follow immediately thereafter. The eminent biochemist McCollum of Johns Hopkins "ound that the proteins of kidney rank first, those of liver second, and those of the muscle meats hird in supplying the body's iceds. After these proteins com? the plant proteins, such as the cereal grains, Including wheat, corn, oats, rice, peas and beans. These substances contain necessary atnino acids, bin not in r|imntitt?s sufficient lo make them compare 'avornbly with milk or meal. It is obviously important lo have this knowledge In attempting to evaluate diets. Such knowledge explains v why a purely vegetarian lict is not as suitable as a mixed diet for the vast majority' ol people. A diet of meat alone, of milk alone, or of cereal grains alone is thus nob as satisfactory as a diet containing sonic of all of these mportant subslanccs. There are cerlaln diseases in which it has been urged lhal a Idgji protein diet is dangerous, and undoubtedly under some circumstances it may be- However, in the vast -majority of cases, the human being can hardly eat a sufficient amount of pro;eins to throw too great, a burden' on his heart, his liver or his kidneys. If the diet is a mixed diet and contains some of all of the important food, tlie amount of protein will probably not be excessive. McLester, in a recent consideration of nutrition and diel, concludes that man must eat a liberal rninnMly of good protein in order to take care o( his body's needs. By a liberal quantity he means at ist ICO grains daily, which is pproximately one-fifth of a ound. It must be borne in mind hat Jew food substances are pure rotein. Of this nature is egg hile. Thus an ordinary glass ot lilk would weigli 220 grams, of •hich 101 would be water and nly seven grams * protein. These even grams would represent BLSURE YOU'RE RIGHT- wu ENGLAND.
