First, of all, we gel Hie .picture of Hie nrch-criiniiiiil, the "inasier of the underwork!," moving in sohtr fact through a realm , thul, would hrfve been thought loo fantastic even fur fiction a few years ago. , We are criminal aclivities of every kind were inlcjjraled; Iniw the nation's .second city paid million.; upon millions oLdollars in tribute an-. iiiiiilly lo Hie country's inosl notonous crook; how Ihe power of the m;m was so -great that, witnesses I'ciired lo te.-iti- fy against him and policemen hesitated to move acainst him. Then \ve got Iho climax. The great criminal -iil hvH i.s laid \,y the lieels. And why? To answer for Hiiy one of the inmimcrnble high crimes committed by liis agents? Not. at ail. Simply because he hud failed to pay taxes on (be mormons profits his illegal activities hs.d rolled up.

Thfe deal fell through because, as the prosecutor complained, Caponc with "imlmlievublc arrogance" made public the lerius of the deal. The "unbelicvabk! arrogance," of course, really consisted in making the deal in the first place. When be talked about it, Capone was not being arrogant; he was simply bciiitf indiscreet. The whole picture is not, pretty, but we nccd.lo keep looking ;\l it. 1| is perhaps the mosUignilicanl story (hat the republic lias produced in the past decade. — Hruce Cation.

However, when the patient says that liis parents, grandparents brothers or sisters have asthma, liay fever, eruptions, eczema, migraine, or recurrent coMs and coughs; when he say's that many foods disagree with him and that others he .simply cannot eat, because he dislikes ii:etn, the physician must be suspicions of some sensitivity to food and make a special search for that sensitivity. In this search it, is now frequently a s,imp!e matter to tfst the patient's sensitivity by eliminaling all of the usual articles of food and giving him only an extremely simple diet, adding one article at a time until his symptoms of sensitivity appear.

Spending to save. .. through ADVERTISING Not many of us, these days, are troubled with so much money that we cannot spend it. But we are interested, in spending the money we have, to get the most out of it. : One way—and not a new way, either—is to make a budget. Put down, week by ' week, the money that comes in. Put down beside it, week by week, the money that goes out. So much for food, so much for clothing, so much for rent. So much for giving, and for luxuries. It won't always be easy, of course, to stay within the budget. That's where advertising helps you. Ad- y^t^ements in this newspaper tell you how much nigs, butter, breakfast foods, dishes, homes, automo- bHes will cost, before you go shopping! They point out ways to save money. They show you how to cut a little here, a little there. And each day, they tell about new inventions, new products new ways of doing things, that help make this life of ours very much worth living!
