The privilege to nse such terms as "society" and "association is a tremendous weapon for good or for ill. Engraved on expensive stationery the title, induces belief in the nonprofitmaking nature of a group's work. Misused, the term not only de frauds the public, but strikes a body blow at the many necessary and highly beneficial societies, which have done so much in promoting human thought, taking care of the ill, providing opportunity for social intercourse, carrying the burden of the necessary odd jobs of civiliza tion. These should resent misuse of such names. More, they should fight it. There, is no reason on earth why any group should be permitted to masquerade as an "association" when it is not a legitimate association. : 177S-ltotiiaiin Frantiin J . returns to PruladSphia; after ID ytarsabroadJ vat tor.

ASSESSMENTS BOND REGULATION Many were the crimes committed by those who betrayed the investing public during the days of high finance and wild speculation, but greatest of them all was the sale in the United States of billions in bonds of foreign countries known at the time to be bankrupt or nearly u " . Nothing would be gained now by punishing the guilty persons, among whom are some of the country's leading bankers, but the federal and state governments can do some thing to prevent a repetition of this gigantic swindle and scandal. Awake to the need for regulation of the foreign investment business, the judiciary committee of the United States Senate has made a favorable report on Senator Johnson's bill providing for such regulation. Should the bill become law, it would be unlawful to sell foreign bonds in the United States without first obtaining permission from Washington and it would be unlaw ful for the government to give that permission until it had made a thorough investigation. International complications could arise from such a measure if the government did not clothe, its investigation and action with secrecy in cases where permission were re fused. And even then retaliatory steps might be taken by foreign governments resenting interference from Washington. No doubt the outside world will object to any .plan of control, but Cone-ress' first and only responsi bility is to the American people and they stand to lose more througn non-regulation than through regulation, i SO THEY SAY V-"-- - The vital need of a tax system ft that it shall fairly distribute tax I aniens. To do so it must assure jatice in assessment. The tax rate, in to far as equality "between tax-v fayers is concerned, is a matter of YnduTerence. The assessment deter-Viined whether they pay more or kiss than their fair share of the tost of operating the government. Under the circumstances, assess- i went reform should not be devoted wholly to effort to secure relief in particular cases, but that it will also embrace consideration of permanent bettermen of the system. As important as it is to correct ! inequitable assessment for purposes of taxation in individual instances, it it more important to devise reforms in a system which will work automatically to prevent injustice. For this reason the taxpayers as a whole would be benefited If property owners would undertake a study of toe system in vogue with a view to feeing if it can be improved. - Full publicity of real estate assessments, as given in many -communities, has done much to eliminate Inequalities. If every property own er had at his command information as to the value placed on other hold- tags, he would have first-hand cvi- aence as to whether he was being Justly treated. Publicity in taxation ! la a great prevention of favoritism i nd of errors of judgment. I Absence of such publicity does not. twever, relieve the property own er oi an obligation to acouaint him. y Silf with assessment records. They i m always available to him and . t Mold be studied by him at frequent I tervals. The property owner so 1 .tie interested in equality of I tsetsments that he does not keep 1 mself informed cannot expect pub-l c officials to concern themselves , ith his particular case.

What a "club 7" What is a "mutual The idea back of these terms is always that of a group bound to-f rther for the benefit of all mem-I trs, but for the particular profit tf none. There are thousands of legitimate associations which have adopted names like those above, and which have been doing helpful and needed work for their members. Today -they face a new menace. They stand the danger of being classed with the many modern rackets which :jtve been of late eMling themselves "associations," "dubs" and "mutual protection societies" for the mask of respect - tbility which the name gives. TODAY In the Water Now. Gang Rule or Court Rule? Omaha, Great City. Hard Work Pays. By Arthur Brisbane 1 Copyright WO S-r r .7.-r- CHICAGO, May 4. Using the language of the old "Midway," Uncle Sr may say: "rat in the water now. The House has passed the "in flation bill," so-called, and those that spend public money will be able to say, if they choose: "What's a billion among friends or tea billions?" However, there are two kinds of inflation: common sense use of the nation's credit with the backing of its gigantic wealth and foolish inflation, based on reckless spending and money printing. To the question: "What do you think of inflation?" the answer is the same as you would give to the question: "What do you think about drinking? It all depends on how much you drink. One thing is certain. Millions will conclude that the best thing to do with a dollar is to spend it. That will help business and employment. And American common sense can be trusted to use American credit wisely.

In addition, Omaha is one of the country's principal grain centers, handling 75,000,000 bushels of wheat a year, and it is the largest butter manufacturing city in the world, and therefore the world's lr.rgest distributor of life-giving vitamins. It is the fourth railroad center in the United States, with ten trunk lines, bringing traffic to Omaha over 73,250 miles of track. And Omaha has money. Thirty- ninth in population among American cities, it stands nineteenth in annual bank clearings. Having rid its mind of all worry about the coming exposition, which will open on time and in full glory, Chicago turns its attention seriously to racketeers and racketeer rule. Bootleg beer profits, with inferior beer sold at fifty dollars a barrel, constituted the backbone of Chicago's racketeer finance. With beer of good quality sold legally at fifteen dollars a barrel, the mainstay of the racketeer disappears. Their plan now, as proved by numerous bomb explosions, is to make "legitimate business" provide profits formerly derived from illegitimate beer. The proposed racketeer invas ion of business reaches from labor unions to milk dealers, ice and coal merchants, cleaners and dyers and dozens of other lines. Most important, prices and pros perity are rising. Prices of Nebraska farm products on the farm have increased from 28 to 212 per cent. Corn, from 8 cents, and less, to 28 cents; wheat, from 20 cents to 55 cents; eggs, from 7 to 11 cents a dozen; oats, from 5 to 15 cents a bushel; hogs, from 2.85 to $3.65 per hundred weight. And the best of it is that far mers will get a large part of the increased values. They still hold on to their farms, unsold, and now in active demand, farm products that have increased in value by more than fifty-one million dollars, . The boldness of the gang rulers, plainly bent on public intimidation, is extraordinary. Five bombs were exploded, all within a few minutes of one other, beginning at half past two, on Monday, in "The loop," Chicago's business center. Chicago purposes to show that it cannot be so easily frightened, and its citizens, distrusting public officials that have allowed crime to continue on a bribery basis for so long, will take into their own hands the job of wiping out gang terror ism. They will get suggestions rather violent, but effective, from the his tory of San Francisco and from London's line of action, when menaced by a gang of garroters. London used the cat o' nine tails, in every case, within fifteen minutes of conviction, and garroting ceased suddenly. San Francisco s vigilance committees used the rope, without bothering about court procedure, and criminals immediately decided that San Francisco was not a de sirable residence. Chicago must make its choice between rule by gangs and rule by the citizens and their courts. A tropical toad, phyllomedusa bi- color, lays its eggs on a leaf just before a rain so that they will be carried to some pond to hatch. . Cheerful news meets you at Oma ha, on the way here, and signs of prosperity are all along the line through Nebraska. L. B. Tobin, publisher of the Omaha Bee-News, proud of his city and State, tells you that Omaha, second largest livestock market in the world Chicago first, of course has annual receipts. ranging as high as eight million seven hundred and fifty thousand head of cattle, sheep and hogs.

MORRIS FISHBEIN Chicago knows its , "protection Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hygeia, the Health Magazine A sprained ankle is one of the most common injuries. A slight failure of complete support throws the weight of the body unnecessarily on a group of tendons, and a sprain frequently follows. A sprain represents stretching or tearing of the tissues of the joints. It must not be confused with fracture, which is a breaking of bone. In many instances, fracture is over looked and the condition diagnosed simpy as sprain, with the result that healinx- takes place slowly, if at all. It U, therefore, exceedingly important to have an X-ray picture taken in every dounuui case, ana sometimes several pictures will be necessarv to determine the presence of verv small fractures into the surface of bones. Sometimes authorities treat sprains by putting a plaster cast on for a few days, ele vating the foot and leg, ana wen applying suitable adhesive straps to snve the foot complete rest. After some seven ' to fourteen days, when inflammation has subsided and healing has begun an employment There is money in circulation, and George Brandeis, able merchant of Omaha, knows it. With his young associate, Karl Louis, he presents interesting facts and figures, including the facts that he realizes the importance of first getting what the people want, then letting them know about it, in advertising. Says he: "I have just ordered a solid eight-page advertisement . for next Sunday, in ' the Omaha , Bee-News, which prints year articles. Mr. Louis and I read them every day. That eirht-page advertisement we shall follow ap with full page advertisements. . When yoa art ia business, do not leave too much to the public imagine-tioa. Tell them, about it." That plan is recommended to other merchants, who wonder what L wrong with business. NIAGARA FALLS, N. Y, May 4. (A1) Archbishop Aftimios Ofiesh, who said God commanded him to marry Marion Namey of Wilkes- Barre, Pa, in defiance of Syrian Orthodox Catholic church law de manding celibacy of its clergy, in the opinion of the church s synodical secretary has "lost his balance." Furthermore, the secretary be lieves the archbishop unfrocked himself by his marriage. The secretary, the Rev. Boris R. Burden, in calling a church council today to meet here May 6 to 8 to consider the matter, said church law was plain in saying if priests of the Syrian church married they were to be deposed and not to be taken back into the priesthood. Father Burden said "back of his marriage question is the matter of what is the authority of the church, xxx The will of God must be tested by v its being in accord with the law of God's church, x x The church and its clergy here in Amer ica are required to follow the laws and teachings of orthodoxy rather than the individual notions of gospel evangelists, x x x Earnest and sincere, honest and devout he is, we love him, but we are confronted with an attitude on his part which convinces us that he has lost his balance." Father Burden explained ' the archbishop not only believed he had received a divine command to marry Miss Namey, but also that he had been directed to abolish the rule of celibacy. The archbishop and his bride re mained tonight on a farm near here. They were united here last week by a common law marriage agreement. Father Burden said they met when the archbishop taught a Bible class in Wilkes-Barre while visiting the parish there. Miss Namey, he explained Vas a brilliant atudent and leader" in the class. Archbishop Ofiesh is 55, his bride is in her early twenties. In connection with the proposed 30-hour week. 6-hour day, 5 days "work," Mr. Brandeis presents a theory which many young gentle men will abhor. He says hard work does not hurt anybody. , He used to work in the Chicago Boston Store for Charles Netcher, the owner, when Mr. Netcher slept every night on the hard counter, and sent out for his meals. Brandeis and Netcher used to arrange furni ture, rugs, etc on the sidewalk, in front of the store, before sunrise, to attract business. Later, when Mr. Netcher married (his widow runs the store now) Brandeis took the job of sleeping in the store. Says Brandeis: "But I was a sybarite compared with Netcher, and I ased to get blankets frost the bedding department, sleep with them on the counter, snd put them back ia the morning."

These anklets may be removed morning and evening for contrast bath, that is alternating baths of one minute each in hot and cold water, until the feet have been in the water ten minutes. A recent development is the application of beat through the passing of electric current through the tissues. This tends to hasten subsidization of inflammation' and recovery. A simple outline for the treatment of sprained ankle follows: 1. Put the patient at rest promptly, assuring freedom from bearing weight on the feet. 2. Elevate the leg and ankle.' 3. Apply ice-bags. 4. Call a physician. When the physician arrives, h$ will probably arrange to have A- ray pictures made, if necessary. He will arrange for. strapping the ankle with adnesive, or, if the sprain is severe, put on a plaster- of-Paris cast. In less severe cases he is likely merely to apply a snug bandage of gauze or cotton. Under no circumstances should the feet be allowed to hang for long periods, since this will tend to ac cumulate fluid and produce inflam mation with more pain and swell- All that will seem dull to many young Americans, whose motto is "Why should I kill myself?" But George Brandeis has not killed him self. At thirty-five he drives his automobile to his cattle ranch, 350 miles from Omaha, leaving home before daybreak, get there in time for lunch, rides his horse all after noon and drives back at night. And, like Netcher, Altman, Mar shall Field, Gimbel, Wanamaker and thousands of other hard workers, he has made a big fortune and is HIS OWN BOSS. That is better than being bossed by someone else all your life, if only for six hours a day.
