MQltRlS FISJIBEI.N Edllur, Journal of the American Medical Association, anil of Ily- sela, thi> HraUh Magazine 'Hie last, 25 years Imve seen great sclcnlilic advance in the attempt to overcome eollcr. that swelling of the lliraiil which is associated with cnlnrgmcnt of the thyroid gland, nud which sometimes gives rise to n series of symptoms serious to health and menacing life itself. Probably (he most significant development is the discovery of the nlliicticc of Iodine deficiency en the causation of the simple swelling of tlie gland. .Although there arc discrepancies in some of the obscrva- oiis, the fact remains that, in gen- ral, the incidence of yoiter in any oimmmity nn be greatly reduced y Ihe resiilnr giving of small doses f iodine. This fact has been well stnblisheil. ItluT Factors Involved There are, of course, other factors 'hlcli enter in ami which modify le response to the giving of iodine.

These symptoms Include loss of weight, rapid heart and nervous irritability, symptoms which liuvc also been observed among women who have taken thyroid glnnd substances to cause reduction of weight. . It hns been established that the danger Is negligible when the dose of iodine is so small that the total amount taken daily does not exceed the amount taken dally by people who live in districts where goiter is infrequent and who get their iodine regularly in food and water. * * » Nations Differ An international conference on eoitcr was held not long ago in Switzerland and special consideration was given to the taking of iodine In the form of salt to which iodine has been added. In Switzerland tire official preparation used contains one part of potassium iodine in 200,000 parts of salt. In Italy, twice as much iodide is used, and in the United States the proportion is approximately one part in 501)0. it has been found that soafish contain abundant amounts ot this substance and the provision of. a diet which contains large amounts of scafish Is useful in .supplying necessary iodine. Of course, the possibility remains thnt-pcrsons who do not need tile iodine may get regular doses of it through tile table use of iodized salt and thus be stimulated to symptoms of hyperthyroidism. SATURDAY. APRIL '2. .'l9«2 BEHIND THE SCENES IN WITM RODNPy i)\ , m n >.»»rM»». J(y IIODNKV l>l)TCIIKR NEA Scriice Writer WASHINGTON - A fiiiid.imciilnl actor in Democratic-, presidential willies, which explains Ihc present trend and is likely to explain l:e result of th« convention con- esl. Is the contrast between the strength of Governor llooscvclfs losillcn and the weakness of the wsitiou of Al Smith. There ii rome question whether Smith's candidacy should be called candidacy at all. JJul. wliatcwr t is. it Is sup;»s:<l lo |j; tic back»no of the movement lo "stop Roosevelt" anil if ii s^s to the l»int ot collapse the "stoii-Hoosc- volt" movement will collapse alons with it. Tlie apparent strength of' the Roosevelt position as conjured with the weakness of tr.c Smith position stems nil the more remarkable ou yon itr.ill their rrsrKrllvc positions four years ago. Smilh was Ihc lair-haiTcd hero of Democracy and Kooscvoll was tr.e nice fellow who had the privilege of placing mm m nomination at the convention. llnw Times Have ('h.inscil But today— Itoosrvcll ui 50 lar in the lead as a contender for the nomination Umi, he is not certain of victory, tin cut' ci$c is mere than mentioned ns a serious iinwiblllty If he rfces r.n; cnlcr the convention with a majority of delegates nr ciiousr, to p-.a hi,,, ovrr 01 , the rirst ballot, iie will a: lo.vt come very cle-^e to a majority and If h should lose the nomination J would certainly come urar dictating I liii' rmitiw! c.'-.olrc. j The rtlsiii;;uifhcd anal- l»^ who \v.'iv nnanimciis In re• it-:.i;:ons a few mcniihs aso (!:a», bmith would control tlie nomina- iicn have all lowed that tune out (nc viurfow. Ic's a Vote-Getlfr Roosevelt is governor of New I'ork and his party always looks o Mew York when it has a gove- tlrerc. He Is popu!»r wilh ihe voters, as was so well demonstrated In his 1930 re-election majority Of 750,000. For years he has been In contact with party leaders-he was once assistant secretary of tin navy and he has cultivated the contacts rather than let them lapse. He has always been progressive enough to apjwal lo Ihe more forward looking element of the parly no* and to provide a contrast wilh the political philosophy of President Hoover and most'oilier aspirants, His populnrlly extends through ill sections. He has few bitter enemies, \ One docs not mean to suggest Ihal Ihc masses o! valors are rising up spontaneously ( 0 demand Roosevelt, but his strength- Is spread over the-country and not sectional. The Name's Aflnclive His name is attractive to voters and, as a former government official and lately governor of the largest stale, he is experienced in large public affairs. Hi s general availability, from almost any slnrw'l- polnt, is obvious. There Is a debit sde of Ihe picture, of course, bin this summary, coupled with lli-> fact ttmt Democrats arc above all cls« anxious lo pick a winner, win |,eln explain why Roosevelt is marching along lo what looks more and more like victory. Al Smith, on tiie other hand has let himself lor plenty of criticism and a loss of prestige. He announced (hat he appreciated Ihe efforts of his fi lends lo elect Smith del-Rales, but has done or said lujth- Inf to indicate that he considers himself a candidate or hopes to win The result Is lhat while Smith's friends are ijcrmltted to use his name (hey arc very seriously handicapped in all their efforts by a widespread belief that Smith only entered the picture in order to lielp the movement to block Koo<cvell + • * tilt New Hampshire Case Whether . (his common attitude toward Smith is entirely fair is tw- sidc Ihc point, it represents n distinct comedown for Smith which is accentuated by such events as his defeat in the New Hampshire primary, In which Smith's name was entered after the leaders virtually had it rigged up for Roosevelt. And whenever the political stature of a rival leader such as Smith or Speaker Garner seems to diminish Roosevelt automatically looms lam-' er in proporiion. ==?= '- THIS CURIOUS WORLD * ONlte IsTHVOSOr* PAHANA, 1 AUtosT TWO AND ONE-HALF INCHES of= RA1H \ KU.
