Our No. I Hed'ith Problem Jlost of us teiift to heart disease as ;t personal ami private affliction—a tragic tiling which slrifefes ftt n youngster or a family broad-winner, a painful and common companion of advancing years. What we often fail to realize is that heart disease uonsl.i- tutcs this country's greatest health problem. Because of this the American Heart Association, an organ i/ation of doctors specializing in heart disease, has overcome the medical profession's customary reticence :uul launched a campaign to acquaint America with tho facts. "The result is the first National Heart Week, Feb. 9-15. This is not a fund-raising drive, though funds arc urgently needed. (As late as 10-1-1, money spent on research in heart disease amounted only to IV cents for each death the disease caused, as against an expenditure of $2.18 for cancer, and $502 for infantile paralysis.) The purpose of -National Heart Week is to inform. The statistics which the Heart Association has compiled are appalling. Heart disease is -the leading fatal disease among children from JO lo lfi v II causes nearly lialf the deaths of persons over 45. Its crippling effects result in enormous economic losses. YeL there . are 'immediate steps that can be taken, in addition to the necessary long-range programs of education and research. Ari urgent problem concerns the care of children afflicted with rheumatic fever ami rheumatic heart disease. Recovery requires a period of continuing treatment, and the pe- Hod of convalescence is measured not in weeks and months, but in years and even decades. Yet few communities •have made any special provisions for .child patients who need public care. Probably few even realize the need. ' There is also the need of vocational guidance for cardiac cases who must change their job for some less taxing \vork. This may require re-train in?, additional education and perhaps temporary financial help if the afflicted person is to get the most from the re- stricted life that he must lead. Nationally, there is the matter of education. The general public needs to be taught why heart disease is our primary health problem, and what can he done ahotil it. Its community as well as individual aspects must be recog- ni/ed. Further, there Is need for better postgraduate facilities io train more doctors its specialists in this disease. Lastly, there is research. JU'uent progress has been made in checking two of tlie five basic heart diseasi's. lietler and more general treatment of syphilis has reduced the prevalence of syphilitic heart disease. And surgery has been effective in some cases of congenital heart disease. Hut the cause and prevention of high blood pressure, hardening of ihu arteries and rheumatic fever remain to be discovered. It is not impossible that th'eso causes and preventions will one day be found. Bui it will require time and facilities and a skilled army of scientists lo attack the problem. And that lakes money. We hope that philanthropic organizations will become more aware of their opportunity lo assist this work. And when and if Ihe public is asked to help, we arc sure that ?L will respond as generously as it hns in campaigns against other diseases. Old G! Custom We arc told that tlie Japanese who presented a wooden sword and petition to General MacArlhur was reviving ar. ancient custom of petitioning the em- poror—a custom which in the old da 1 ;.] usually ended with the petitioner's execution. H might also be noted that ihn general was continuing a tradition when he kept the wooden sword us 'i present for his son. This tradition isn't so ancient. lUit it will probably warm the hearts of a, good many veterans to learn that Ihe top brass has succumbed to the powerful and prevalent GI urge lo "liberate" souvenirs.

The elder Hamilton seemed cov- diol enough, there was no sliffncss in his manner, just a'sort ol morose impatience. Parker explained to her afterward, "Father's never bad time for anything but work, especially since my mother died. It's only been three years, you know. He lold me he was glud I was marry- .ing you, if it would last. Imagine that! He doesn't know you like I do." "You do have a lot of faith In me, Parker," she said as they drove aivay from tho bank. "I made a fizzle ot my first marriage, you know," he reminded her "O£ course it was just a college crush. We were married jusl , a couple ol months and then it , sotjt o£ fizzled and we got a divorce. She wasn't your sort, Cas- I sie.

"You're the kind that .'.-ill say all that stud about lor better or worse, in sickness and in health, till death do us part—and really mean it]"" Castie looked away. She felt a queer sense of guilt. "I will mean it!" 1 she thought fiercely. * * » TT was that afternoon that she told them al the office that she w;is leaving. Mr. Drummond patted her shoulder almost affectionately. "Sorry to see you ' go, Miss Fletcher. And if you ever want lo come bnc'.v—" his lal plcasan face Hushed ever so slightly and corrected himself hastily What I mean is—if yon should get bored, or want for any rcosoi o go back to work again, we'd bo glad to have you back.

It was chilly, so that after n moment she put her arms in the sleeves of Ihe new gray coat. Her hands in the pockels were clenched. "Mike," she whispered.
