Culture in America The most musical city in the United Slates supports no symphony orchestra, has no opera season. It is La Porte, a little factory town in northern Indiana which, according lo George Knjy- les, manager of 1'mk'ivwski, Kreislcr, JlcCormaek and other famous artists, buys more concert tickets in pro]H>rtion to its population than any oilier city in the country. Second in appreciation of music, according to Mr. Kngles, is Helena, Ark., sawmill, col ton and "seaport" town. If patronage of the arts is a meas-. ure of civilization, culture in America, appears to have reached its highest, or at least its most democratic development not in such cast coast centers of self-accepted Brahmins, intellectuals and aristocrats as Huston, New York and Charleston, but in Hie raw inlcvioi- exploited as the home of yokclry and liabbiltry.

BY RODNEY NEA Service Writer WASHINGTON.—One Ihlnj about Hoover commission is that they don't yet out of hand. They remain Hoover commissions to llic end. The history of the Woods unemployment committee, appointed in connection with the great problem of joblessness, lias been somewhat analagous lo that of the Wicker- sliam commission, created 1 primarily as a means of dealing with the troublesome prohibition issue. the committee that although courtesy to the president demanded that they hold their tongues while s'.ill serving, there was no reason why they shouldn't speak their minds niter retirement, using any information they Iiad admired here. Sidi-Slep Comparisons In the last lew weeks all tha'. was heard from Woods was occasional announcements of large 'EIIIIIS being devoted to construction In tlic country. These were con- 'spicuously iniucfompanic'J by comparative figures for similar periods •insl year. The Department of 'Conmiercs's bureau of public con r v K-ruclion Inul surveyed new govern.;. 3uent eonslrnclion . u few mouthy ingo and. dcspMo all the ballyhoo' jitlicrc had been about llial sort of j.thing as a federal ellori to reduce cuts. Thus It one eats gelatin und supplement It with oilier protein substances wlilch provide three other protein constituents, he will not suffer from nutritional disturbances which he does suffer when eating gelatin alone. • *• • The protein of milk, which Is called casein, supplies most ot the constituents called ultimo acids, and therefore life can be maintained satlsinctorlly far longer on a diet consisting largely of milk than it could on a dlel ol BClatin. Because ol the relationships of these proteins lo the maintenance of life, they have teen listed by the blochemisls according to their biologic value. Thus the proteins of milk are at the top and those of meat follow immediately thereafter. The eminent biochemist McCollum of Johns Hopkins found that the proteins of kidney rank first, those of liver second, and those of the muscle meals third in supplying Hie body's needs. Afler these proteins com? Hie plain proteins, such as the cereal grains, including wheat, corn, oats, rice, peas and beans. These substances contain necessary amino acids, but not in quantities sufficient to make them compare favorably with milk or meat. It is obviously important lo have this knowledge In attempting to evalualc diets. Such knowledge explains why a purely vegetarian diet is nol as suitable as a mixed diet for the vast majority of people. A diet of meat alone, ol milk alone, or cf cereal grains alone is thus not as salisfactory us a diet containing sonic of all of these important substances. There are certain diseases in which it has been urged that a higji protein diet is dangerous, and undoubtedly under some circumstances it may be. However, in the vast majority of cases, the human being can hardly cat a sufficient amount of proteins to throw too great a burden on his heart, his liver or his kidneys. If the diet is a mixed die: and contains some of all of the important food, the amount of protein will probably not be excessive.

Baruamr McLester, in a recent consideration of nutrition and diet, concludes that man must eat a liberal quantity of good protein In order to take care of his body's needs. By a liberal quantity he means at least ItX) giams daily, which is approximately one-fifth of a pound. It must be borne In minrtr that few food substances are pure [ protein. Of this nature is egg white. Thus an ordinary glass ot | milk would weigh 220 grams, of which !Cl woidd be water ana only seven grams • protein. These seven grams would represent In the total daily demand approximately one-fourvccnth. Let not, your heart be troubled: believe in God. believe nlso in me.
