Maf^e li a Safe Fourth ApjH'o.siinnluly n Lliousiind American children suffer eye injuries cudi year, and fully 75 jiur cent nf injuries result in lohil blindness. And, according to figures supplied l>y the National Society for the I'rcvcntuin oT Hliiul- ness, no loss iltan 2'A per cent of all such accidents are caused hy Kourth of July Ih'i'works. Indeed, the figures show that more accidents to children's eyes occur on and around liidepemlciicu Day (han on any other 100 days in the entire year. These figures point their own moral. Fireworks are dangerous things for chililrcrrto play with. The inuii who puts such things into his child's hands may think that he is doing Hit- youngster a kindness; but be is really putting the child under the liaxurd of a tragic injury. It's perfectly possible to give a child an extremely happy Independence Day holiday without touching oil it single firecracker. More parents ought to take tlic trouble lo find onl how it is done. Wade in Unemployment thousand college students met in Newark, N. J., (In; other day to hear men 'eminently successful in the various professions give them advice on the choice of their life work. The importance of making a wise choice was emphasised by one speaker with these words: "The man or woman .in a misfit job is as marked an economic waste as the eight-cylinder engine tliat fires on only three cylinders. And when this waste of brains and energy and productiveness is figured in terms of 120,000,000 people, it becomes a national problem." True enough, in all conscience. But if the man in a misfit job is a great waste, what about the energetic and ambitious man who can gel into no job at all? The economic waste involved in a mass of eight or IL>II million jobless men is one of the most appalling things of modern times!. Sacrifice to Progress A long, long time ago, when people were going to erect a great public building, they would begin by killing a slave or a prisoner of war and seal- ing liis body in the foundations. This was supposed to bring good luck, pros- purity, or something equally desirable. . We don't do tilings like that any more; but we might remember Uml almost every large building project, even now, costs at least one life—anil sometimes u good many more tlniii one —before it guts completed. \VHnei-s, for example, figures just released by the Nevada Industrial Insurance Commission, which show that no fewer than <15 workmen have been accidentally killed while at work on the Boulder Dam project since March, lilSl. This job is a stupendous one and its diU'iculties are vast; the toll of deaths probably isn't any sign of carelessness or improper procedure. It's just a reminder that a great construction project, now, as in the old days, requires its .sacrifice of human life.

However, It Is worth noting thai Individualism did not raise Its liciui when (lie government was putting money into the ]xx;kcl,s of furmcrs or limitless men. Only when government, utter paying LtnelUs, begins to ask for cu-o]>ciiilkm In bearing (lie burden, does (lie fimniT or business man begin lo feel MI much independence and indlvldiiitifcin. The Idea seems to be abroad In (he liind llml what (he Kovcrnmcnl should ilo Is in give the Individual all Ihe break;;, make in •}• for him and save lilni from his past folly. Then, liuvlni; done so much, dm government should respect his Individualism ami not nsk him lo play the game accouling to the rules, nuidc to Insure fnlrncxs to everybody.

MORRIS FISHUEIN Kdltor, Journal ol the American Medical Association, and of the Ikalth M«azfrii The light case of Infantile paral- •sls which Jinx attacked Ida Luplno, beautiful film actress, Is one of what appears to be an pldemlc of this vicious disease n California. There have been previous epi- lemics In lhat .stale in 1025, 1927, nil 1030. The epidemic of 1930 vns llic most extensive Callfor- ilu ever experienced. In lhat •ear. 1903 cases were repoitcd, villi 157 doatlis. At present the disease Is preadiiiK rapidly and lliere Is no iope of n decrease before llic coin- rig of tlic first cold weather. It s typical of infantile paralysis hat it is a summer and fall disease. In California Die cold wrallie'r s not likely to npi>ear until late November. For llils reason doctors arc advising people not to take small children Into California al the present time, because small children arc much more likely lo catch this disease than arc older people. * • » Infantile paralysis, like scarlet, lever nnd diphtheria, is sprcac frequently by healthy people who are carriers of the disease, rather than by direct contact with tin sick i»rson. A few years ago it was gener ally suggested that infantile pa ralysls might be prevented by inoculating children with the blood 'of those who have recovered from Hie disease. Later it was shown lhat even the blood of healthy grown-up persons IIILS in it certain powers of prevention against this disease, perhaps because of slight attacks of Ihe disease and the carrying of antisubstances of Ihe disease in [heir blood. Not enough evidence is avall- ble, however, lo warrant a gcn- ral recommendation for the IHOC- lalioh of all children who might •o exposed, either with the Ijlocxi f persons who liavc recovered or with the blood of healthy grown- p people. * • • indeed, there is still some doubt is lo the value of the injections f (he blco:l ol those who have ecovered, In treating a child who las been definitely diagnosed us laving Infantile narnlysls. _ Every cnild who develops an llncss ivith sore throtil, fever, icadiichc, pains in the sloniacli or howsiness should to regarded as possible victim of an infoctious iseasc and should be kept in bed diagnosis Is definitely intil the made.

Thai rest should cover u long period of time, because there sometimes, are periods of quic-t between-periods .of. severe illness in the, various singes of (his disease. : Not all children who arc Infected wllli this condition are paralyzed. Those who arc not paralyzed sometimes are capable of spreading the disease when they seem to be well. . • : Swimming Pools Make' Bow at Chicago Club* CHICAGO. (UP) - Swimming poois rapldfy are making their appearance til a number of exclusive golf ciiibs hi Ihe vicinity. At present, three of the clubs either have completed projects of that nature, or nro in the process of doing so.

Sh» called aftw Jane: 'It'll be a Dice Christmas present to yourself to land thfs Job—or did you Intona to go home for Clirlst- mas?" ""vTIielher I land U or not, I'd not going liome." Go home! Something of her first rebelltou and fury cams back to Jano aa she thought of that. Whether «ha got tha job or not.

Kandel offices with her color flaming, her eyes defiant, and spoko to tho Important youth. In tho reception room so peremptorily that he leaped to announce* her. And she, entered Mr. Ovid Kandel's presence far more Ilka Queen Vash- II at her height than an anilous applicant for a plum of a job. Mr. Kandol was unaccustomed to such an approach Jind It Interested him. Ha asked the usual Questions and Jana answered them almost offhand, tes. sha could type.

She could flic, sha could—suddenly sha camo alive to the situation, grasped iho fores and Intensity of the man before her'aven as he reo- ojnlzed In her-some of his own characteristics. Now she knew she wanted to work for him, that he could command hor loyalty and aid and her blind ambition. "All ot those things you're asked me." *he said. Interrupting him, "they're the usual secretsry's stuff. Anyone can do them. You certainly; require mucu mora than that." "Aa for Instance?" asked Mr. Kandcl, Ellll re era Interested. "You want someone who can hindle people whom you don't want to see, but also don't want to aa- lagonize.

"Then you'd belter make U worth my while to learn It." Mr. Kandel whistled. "What do you want?" he asked. "Forty dollar* to start and a (10 raise »t the end ot a year If I'm worth It." Mr. Knndel settled himself for tha pleasure of a dicker, with tha double purpose of finding out whether the girl knew how to bargain, and of paving himself a third of the salary he had paid her predecessor. By dickering and by saving Mr. Kandel had largely made his great financial success But Jane, In his own phrase, eat up to him. He was to her no more than Jlrs.

At tho end of an eihitaratlng 20 minutes they came to an agreement, somewhat above his Intention. Mr. Kandel was to pay $37.50 a week for alx mohths- Then If satisfactory Jane would receive 510 and a $5 raise each six months after that until she had reached a maximum of {60. "And by that time," Mid Mr. Kandel, "you'll probably own this business and I'll be out on the street panhandling for a cup of coffee. When can you start!" "Now, If you want mo." "There's your desk.
