They, are the 64,000 blind whose reading is limited to l;ooks and magazines published in braille and whose knowledge of day by day happenings in the world depends on what they ;irc told or what others read to, them. , , A young New Yorker has announced that next fall he will establish u daily newspaper for tlie blind. The young man himself is blind; he. has been sightless since he was t) years old. With the assistance of charitable organizations, lie continued his schnol- ing, won scholastic honors and u college degree. The proposed newspaper will be published in braille. It will contain advertising as welt as news and will be issued five', days a week free to 5,000 blind iir^hc .middle Atlantic states. Later it is hoped to extend this number so fhst the newspaper will reach blind persons everywhere in the United States and Canada. There is something singularly appealing about this effort of the blind to aid the blind. To those less handicapped it brings renewed realization of the thousands of blessings and advantages jo commonly accepted ns to ' be forgotten. The young publisher states bis object in establishing the newspaper is to make it possible for the sightless "to take a more active and profitable part in society." The words may stand as a challenge, to those who can sec. BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS A Memory We Would Not Want to Revive The American home has always been a good deal like the weather. There was a lot of talk about it, but very few ever really did anything about it. Sentimental songs about Getting Back to That Tnmble-down Shack, and Shanties in Old Shantytown have been extremely popular, though it's hard to see just what there is that is really attractive about shacks and shanties. But apparently there was a lot more reality i n these songs than there is in most popular fnngs of the OUT OUR d»y. A report of the American Public H«alth Association reveals some sfart- Hns things about Die Great American Home. • » • Only one-sixth of rural homes liave plumbing. Less than onc-i'ourlh ol' the nation's homa.s have running water; less than half Iwve electricity. Hi. Hnvcu Emerson, presi<lent of Die association, points out in addition thai many private single dwellings are lire- traps, an<l that (lie average AnR-rinan home is wasteful of heat hecaii.-c not properly insulated—and very iincum- I'ortiiljle in summer for the same reason. He adds that many small homes of the south lack the screens in doors und windows that alone will prevent malaria among the occupants. In addition to this, as applied to individual homes, recent revelations in the New York City investigations of tenement conditions have shown horrible conditions of housing that are duplicated to some degree in almost every American city. * • • the lu.ige'Sihou'sing remodeling program of President Roosevelt gains considerable support. Certainly there can be tio better use of federal funds than to loan them for rebuilding the American home into something that will IM: lit to .sing about. Perhaps, if the housing program is successfully carried through, a future generation of song writers will cease to chant of tnmhled-elown shacks and cabins in the cotton and write some tender lyrics to "That Fireproof, Insulated, Tile-bathroomed Old Klcc- trical Home of Mine." At least that would be .something worth singing about. —Bruce Cat ton. Still at Odds After "due weighing" of evidence, Dr. F. Scott McBrirte, general superintendent of tho Anti-Saloon League of America, tinrls tliiit repeal has failed deplorably to sojve the liquor problem. After similar "weighing," tlie New York State Ak'oliolic Beverage Board finds that, repeal in the Empire slate has brought about riet'tnile evidence of social, moral and economic improvement. Repeal undoubtedly has had its benefits and il, also undoubtedly has given rise to sonic conditions which seem worse than was the case under prohibition. But turning a blind nye lo a situation that does not mutch up with tlie investigator's personal prejudices, and magnifying everything tlint does agree with his viewpoint, will not bring the nation any closer to solution of tlie vexing problem. There is such a thing as temperance in investigation as well as temperance in the use of liquor, and some of the fact tinrior.^ might employ it in their research.
