Medical Progress While medical science has niuilo important advances in its war upon ly- plioid fever, smallpox, diphtheria nnd most other contagious diseases it apparently has lost ground lo heart disease, cancer ami diabetes. In 1900, for example, in a certain American city, the death rate from typhoid was 110 per hundred thousand. Now it has dropped to 1.6. In 1900 the death rate from .smallpox was GG.4 per 100,000. Last year there was but one death from smallpox in a population of 000,000. In 1900 the diphtheria death rate was 5G.6 per 100,000 against a present rate of only 4.1. In the same city thirty years, ago the death rate from diabetes wns 4.4 per 100,000; today it is 19,5. The cancer death rate in 1900 was 54 per 100,000; today it is 108.6. The heart disease death rate at the turn of the century \va.5 08.4; today it is 1GC.4. Have ^we then succeeded in conquering due set of diseases only to fall victim to another? ,Not exactly. It seems to be the rule of life that nil of us must die. Cancer, heart disease and diabetes . arc principally diseases of middle age »nd old age. Probably the chief cause of their increase is the fact that medical impress lias enabled us to live longer than .we did thirty years ago. We escape smallpox, typhoid and-diphtheria to die of something else. Whcn ; our physicians learn more effective methods of controlling diabetes, cancer anil heart disease the mortality statistics will probably show alarming- increases in the death rate from some other diseases of old age. But most of us will agree, that it is more satisfactory to topple over with heart disease at 65 than to die of diphtheria or smallpox in youth. It is the increase in the average span of .life and activity, not the mortality rates, Lhat tell the real story of medical progress. reported that while more than half of tlic persons killed in automobile accidents arc pedestrians, deaths among drivers are increasing at a far more rapid rate. Since 1927, jleaths to pedestrians have increased only D per cent; among drivers, in the same period, deaths have incrent-od 35 per cent. In other woids, deaths among pedestrians arc increasing only about as rapidly as the number of pedestrians increases; deaths among drivers are increasing more than twice as fast as the number of automobiles increases. Evidently, we need "careful driving" campaigns much more than we need "don't jay-walk" campaigns. Matches From Russia The danger of Moscow may be causing some of our statesmen to lie awake nights with fear, but the United States Army, nevertheless, does its part to help the finances of the Soviets by buying all of its matches from Russian manufacturers. Officials of the army (|uartermaster corps point out that they arc compelled by the rules to buy Russian matches— because they can buy them more cheaply than ^airy other kind. This excellent little object lesson illustrates the crux of the whole matter. If, in the long run, the Russians arc consistently able to undersell their capitalistic European competitors, the Communist regime will probably endure. If they fail, it won't. For this modern commercialized and industrialized world offers its greatest prizes to tho man or the nation that can produce goods at the lowest expense. Sajer Drioing is Needed The pedestrian, apparently, is learning how to take care of himself in traffic much better than the motorist is. The National Safety Council has just The Basic Reasons for the South's Recovery The Soulh hns suffered with the rest of the country In the present depression. I3ut the Manufacturers Kccord gives llrst page position to the statement, of a correspondent that the South will "almost Inevitably" come through these llnus In better shape than nny other part of the country. The Soulh, it is pointed out, Is essentially a producer of raw materials, although its mnnii- fnctures of seml-IInlshcd and finished products have b:cn greatly expanded niul diverslfic:!. Tile South fiirnlslu\s a linger percentage of the domestic requirements of metallic and nonmetallic minerals, cluys, forest products and farm products than nny oilier section of the United States. Even last year, the combined value of these Southern products of mine, forest and farm exceeded $6,090,000,000, and this wns wholly new wealth that had to be produced before other Industries could pursue their operations. We are reminded lhat these basic natural resources have not been diminished in volume by the stagnation of world trade, or impaired in quality or intrinsic value. We are reminded also that as business and manufacturing revive, the Southern producer uf primary raw materials should be the first to feel the effects of quickening activity, because the very things' he has to sell arc the very things the notion as a whole must, first procure as the basis of renewed normal production nnd revived prosperity. —Arkansas Gazette.

My dreams have been realized It Is with tile utmost p'easure thai I welcome you, at the head of the American contingent, to our shores." Latsv King George chatted for a few moments with each member of Persliing's staff. He conversed with the general for a quarter of an hour, shoeing hands enthusiastically as they parted. This ceremony at the palace was followed by a series of calls and entertainments.

H. Slinw, manager of the Seattle branch of the Federal Reserve bank, of San Francisco. Two dollar bills are looked upon as nuisances by bankers and the people alike. Nobody seems to want them, and although people of the. West are not so superstitious about them as those in the East, they prefer other bills, and thq S2 currency could be withdrawn without inconvenience to anybody, Shaw thinks. "Remarkably few $2 bills are circulated here." he said. "Last onth we distributed 1C.500, as mpaied with 229.000 $1 bills, id only a small percentage of the iCs and twos we circulate ever lurn. The only explanation I ve is that Seattle residents pre- r silver dollars to small currency, Kl the 51 and S2 bills, therefore, get into the possession of urisls who take them away." her mother, who wns both n com- vaoA Im cns ,, ccl in on \ his scason "Mark my wards," as the student said in handing his essay to the English prof.
