James was, under Governor John S. Fisher, 1827-31. Before taking the gubernatorial oath In the presence of his cabinet and within the viblon oC thousands ot visitors facing tho glusscd-ln inaugural stand, James administered the same ofllclal outh to his running-mate, Lieutenant Governor Sumuel S. Lewis, in the State Senate chamber. None of James'- predecessors had done Unit. Definite objectives outlined by the new.Governor included organization of «' new Stiite governmental division,, a department of commerce, which will "strive to halt the flight ot Industry from Pennsylvania" and "endeavor to bring back to our State those which have already left." Specifically, the department will have three functions, he sqld: ' 1. To provide means whereby the advantages of Pennsylvania as an industrial state may be pointed out to those seeking sites for their industries. 2. To provide an opportunity lor public hearings Sor complaints of adverse conditions in the State. . 3. To provide n means whereby specific recommendations may emanate for the remedy or improvement tit conditions affecting the expansion of business and Industry. . Governor James indicated the pro- posed'agency, which probably would absorb the present Inbor and Industry department, the mines department and other government functions, could be established and operated without extra costs to the taxpayers. "By placing under this department a sufficient number of functions at present miscait elsewhere h, the State Administration, its operation should be made possible without additional cost to the taxpayer," James said, "while efficiency will be Improved by coordinating all State activities in the three lines specified." Its major task, the Governor said, will be to "investigate and correct punitive legislation directed against industry, whether over-taxation or otherwise."

The Governor avoided citing examples of undcsired tax and regula- toiy measures on the statute books but interpreted the November 8 returns as indicating also that the people .were appealing "for labor and industry to clasp hands in cooperation and to refrain from controversy at least until normal employment is reestablished." With cooperation of that type, he assured his listeners, Pennsylvania "can take her present problems In her stride." James tcrved notice there would be no return lo rule of the State by either "overlords" of industry or labor during Ills Administration and commented that "political bosses have no place In labor unions." One paragraph ot tho Governor's address was interpreted as notice that several of tho statutes sponsored not woikablc, but are so burdensome that they prevent the attainment ot the very objectives for which they were enacted." Suits contesting coiibtitutionallty of the compensation law were argued before the State Supiemc Court last week. Without mentioning the name of his pi edeceisor or of the political designation of the retiring State Administration, James predicted a "large deficit" would be left to him and commented that the Commonwealth's government "lias been led Into a scale of living far from warranted by any income now in sight" by the Earle Administration to give labor a "Magna Charta" would be toned down during the James regime. That section, which apparently referred particularly to the 1937 revision of the workmen's compensation law, was: "Certain acts which have been passed in recent years, covering the relations between employers and em- ployes, will have to be amended, but this is not because fault Is to be found with the purposes of these laws, nor with the protections they attempt to offer. Instead, the reason these lawn must be changed is that as they now stand they not only arc The Governor expressed hope that Congress would "sec the wisdom of putting control of the WPA back into the states and removing it completely from political domination." James reaffirmed his campaign pledges to "divorce relief from politics" and to continue adequate aid to persons on public assistance roles. In lauding his Cabinet appointees the new Governor made a veiled reference to the graft charges pending uriainst his predecessor und 13 other Democrats and inferentially accused the Earle Administration of extravagance. Members of the Incoming Republican Cabinet "are especially well qualified," James said, "to do their full sihare in the huge task of running the State Administration through the wringer--of helping to squeeze out waste and duplication and graft." This, he added, "is the largest immediate task before us." By LOGAN CLENDENING. 81. D. cilEAT horror is shown by statisticians and sociologists at the havoc wrought by the common cold. About a million people will bo incapacitated this week from colds, mnkinpr a loss of three thousand ycnrs of working time. That looks impressive but I doubt If thsre is as much trouble as it looks on paper. That work all gets done some way or other. And I have always felt that a cold was kind of a nico thing. It puts you to bed for day or two and lets you rest your poor, old, tired nervous system. You putter around the house and find things in drawers that you had forgotten you had. And it is a great satisfaction to think of those poor slaves doing all your work at the office for you. This idea that a cold In a good thing gets some support from the observations of Dr. Charles Arm- Dr. Clcndcnine will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. WHS.

Colds, according to Dr. Armstrong, are good things in more ways than one. Curbs Other Infections Dr. Armstrong begun to think about the well-known fact that sleeping aickncss and infantile ]a ralysis arc summer ills; and the common cold is a winter ill. Slccn- inp; sickness and infantile paralypls both enter the body through the noso. Is It possible that a good nose Infection with the common cold crowds out tho moro terrible lis cases? Working on this suggestion, Dr ArmstronR made some experiments He washed the. noses of white mice with salt water and pooled the wash ings. Then ho grow a culture of bacteria from the washings and pu minuto amounts of thcso culture: into the noses of other mice scvcra times a week. After a few days he inoculated their noses with tho virus of sleeping aicknes. Sixty per ccn of them survived this inoculation whllo in a control group of mice which had not b'n previously prayed with the bacterial culture, nly 25 per cent survived. Raiwd Rechtance Apparently the prc nous nasal in- ection raised a resistance in thf membrane to other infections. It w»» found that the bacterial spray auictl the production of white blood ells, which hnvo a defensive role- igainst infections. These white ells were poured into the nasal rnu- oua membrane in great quantities. "hey apparently produced immun- ty for ilve days. It is possible that some form of immunization can be produced in his way and that tho experiments mvo n practical aide. Certainly it vould bo worth trying in a commun- ty faced with an epidenvc oj infantile paralysis. A "summer cold", even if deliberately induced, is a welcome substitute lor either of the other common summer infections. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Jlf.
