A Plea For 50,000 Children There .ire 50,000 school t-hiulvcn in America who can't see newly as \vull as tliey should sue, according to MM iin- iiouiicemenl miulc rtconlly by Lewis H. Can-is, the mannifinf; director of llu- National Society lur tin: I'rcvc-nlion. of Tin's Jisiiro in itself m;iy not sniiml ' so startling. But the fact tlml only 4,000 of this group are rtcoivinu snct- ial hist ruction is appnlliny. It menus tlmt -16,000 boys and girls ;irc .sitting in I'liis.sroonu, i lying to compote in a race in which they are luin.iicappLd at tlic start. They arc probably beinj? called stupid in n good ninny inslances when tbeii- eyes, not their intellects, are at fault. Children themselves do not always ( know what is wrong. Tliey have no ' way of knowing why tlm Loy across the aisle understands exactly where 1 the teacher is pointing when she turns to tlie colorwl map thai hangs on (he . wall. To thc children with defective eyesight tho 'map is a pink and green blur. They don't, know why othor c-liil- di'Gii complete (ho answers KO quickly when the instructor places a list of priiilcd ([tieslioiis in front of the cla-s. Now and then a child will discover thsit the blackboard is moving far- - ther and farther away, Thc words in his text-hooks are growing smaller and smaller. When that occurs, lie has H strongs,-startled scnstv of fright. He is afraid liinl he i-.. going blind. But he won'f say thc lulled word out loud. ll c thinks lhat if ho keeps the secret to .-himself maybe it won't happen. So lie locks it up in a sensa- tive, misunderstood, little heart. ^ There are 14 slates in Die United 'States lhat are providing special in, st ruction for children who^e eyes are defective. Tiicy are ' placing" lamps in the darkness. But. in th c oilier. 34 stales, tlie limulicnpptM children go stumbling along tlie same road the others take, faltering, O f course, and wondering why they can 1 ! keep up. The amount of added expense required for special instruction in such inslances L; just a farthing compared to the human anguish that a chili! u-ilh defective eyesight can suiter. Furthermore, his menial and spiritual visions are quite likely to become as blur- re;! as his physical sight, if his "1 ;1K - ging" continues. -Bruce Calton. A Viial Problem Efforts of the American Federation of Labor to gain Congressional regulation of the soft coal industry |>oii)l to a problem tin.I ought to be engaging the attention uf the country's best brains. Pre.-iidwit William Green of the federation says that coal miners are "not living—just existing." And Henry \Varriim, counsel for the United .Mine \\VrktTs, dccl.'trc.s of Hie coal industry: "That its capital structure is being destroyed and its labor wage shamefully ciellaleil; that communities dc!;; ; /i<lij]g on it arc being pauperized; that it is Die scene 01' violent labor dispute, the victim of unprecedented eiil-throat competition . . . and that, in tho liiia! oll'orl to survive, it i- wasting beyond future recovery 40 per cent of thc coal it mines." Here is a matter that deserves Con- giv.ssional attention al once. A Philippine. Boycott? A di-pak-h from Manila to tin- Niw York llerold Trilnmo reports that tin- I'hilippino Civic Union, of the insurgent Filipino politic-ill groups, is laying plans ( w a boycott of American inamifiiclwes as a menus of expressing the islanders' desire for complete ami immediate independence. If such a move should be put into ell'ecf, it would jjivo lo an exceedingly odd situation. The nation is pledged to set the 1'bilippines free. Bills arc now pending in Congress to .set a definite date. iiut if the boycott became effective, it is highly probable that the American government would at once devote all its ell'orl to breaking the boycott— would try, in other words, to keep (he Filipinos from demanding that which it has already promised them. And in the excitement thc promise of independence might, be forgotten for • another liwo decades.

Dr. Zwick believes that tho spontaneous disappearance of thc warts must Ire due lo seme chemical change in the bort.v which makes tlic body an unfavorable soil for Hi? causative virus or organism responsible for the wart. ! Sometimes war Is disappear after I irritatlnn with the ultra-violet cr i with the X-rny, which may also change thc chemical reactions in tlie human body! Various' drugs have teen applied which sometimes do actually destroy the wart afirt on other occasions change the condition of the blood. Tha mere fact that warts disap- . pear spontaneously causes some doubt as to the use of any method of treatment, since it is never possible to. say whether or not tlic warts would have disappearedwith- out, thc Irf.itment. It is known that actual snrgicnl removal of the wart or its- destruction by appropriate agents docs get n'd of tlie wart every time. Other methods quite frequently fail.
