Many Would Risk For Humanity's Sake Jufl wlii'ii you lii'gin to got tliscoui-- agcd by Hie way the human race lakes advantage of every occasion to sliuw the meanness, the stupidity anil the cruelly of which it is capable, something happens thai makes you do 1111 about-face and turn from sadness to admiration. Nol so very long ai;o, it became known that a Philadelphia physician— Dr. John A. Kolmcr, bead of Temple University's medical staff—bad devised a vaccine which lie hoped would be ct- fectivc aguinsl thai dread scourge, infantile paralysis. •Creating such a vaccine'l just a- matter of getting a bright idea, rushing oil" to the laboratory, and then stepping calmly into a place among the immortals of medical science. It calls for a vast number of experiments, HO that science may know exactly what the new serum will and will nol do to persons into whose bodies it is injected. ••;>. V • < '-p f » > • For such experiments, volunteers are, needed. And submitting one's self to tests of Unit kind isn't exactly the softest assignment in (he world. For one never known, in advance, just what's going to hiin|>cn. Taking an untried new serum into your ; vein's : is like leaping oil' into the dark without knowing whether (here is solid footing or a bottomless bog below. Anyhow, the point of all this is thai as soon as it became known that Dr. Kolmcr was working on this scrum, people began offering themselves as volunteers for these experiments. Literally hundreds of people called or . write, asking that the experiments be made on them. N'ow it happens dial the Philadelphia doctor isn't ready to accept any of the-e od'ers. First he wants In sub- rait a paper describing his serum to the American Medical Association. No actual imioculations will be made until after this body luis bad a chance to discuss the entire project and pass on its merits. * * * But the mere fact that human beings, by the hundreds were eager to come forward and lei him try this scrum on their bodies is an extraordinary thing. Down under everything else—under the folly and the blindness and the pettiness that go to make up human nature—there is an inexhaustible store of phtin, old-fashioned courage; a willingness to loss life into the scales and let . it go, if chance runs Iho wrong way, for the sake of a cause, or an ideal. It is the most encouraging thing about the human race. People who can rise above the oldest and greatest of all fears—the fear of death—have divinity in then), somewhere. —Bruce Cation. How I ourisls Pay The value of what are called "invisible exports" in a nation's economy is clearly illustrated by recent figures showing jii;l what Iho tourist trade is worth to France. During li);W, for instance, American tourists spent about 1,500,000,000 francs in France. In that year, French exports I o the United Stales were a iillle more lhan half that value—8(58,000,000 francs, to be exact. In other words, as far as the United Stales is: concerned, the tourist business is. worth twice as much to France as is foreign trade. There's onu other interesting little thing about if. French authorities have tabulated the way in which the American tourist's money is spent in France; and they have found that just 7 per cent of it goes for what might be called wine, women and song. That, considering the popular tradi- lion about the American tourist's way of amusing himself in Paris, seems surprisingly low. Murder in Germany Nobody yet has suggested that Gen. Hugh S. Johnson is. a diplomat. Certainly bis public description of Ihc recent in formal executions in which some two score or more of rebellious Germans died at the hands of Hitler's henchmen was not diplomatic, lie used the words "semi-civilized" and "savagery," which are not terms commonly used by diplomats. But perhaps Use Hitler government, which yesterday made official protest to the United States government, might think twice before doing anything lo keep world attention centered upon the matter. -Murder is murder, and if General Johnson or anyone else chooses to refer to murderers as semi-civilized he is not guilty of using unduly strong language. Mr. Hitler and his friends will nol find it easy to convince world opinion that the general was doing anything except speaking the truth. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Soviet Surgeon Performs Remarkable Operation LENINGRAD (UP)-What is described as one of the mosl rc- narkablc. operations tn medical :iUtory was performed here at the Leningrad Surgical Institute. A tumor the size of a plgeon- ogg was removed frtim the brain o( a young • flrl. The- malignant Siowtli was threatening her with ilindness. The tumor was located only a few millimeters from th« nucleus .•.here all life centers are located. The surgeon, lifted a portion of the brain to remove the tumor. It is understood that only a few times In medical history has an operation of this character been uudcrlakeu successfully. "Well, 1 cerliiinly, told the boss where to get off today." Many Diseases of Children Likely to Affect Sinuses Judge's Rug Aids Bailiff as Weatherman HOUSTON. Tex. (UP)—John Adkins, personal bailiff of Federal Judge T. M. Kennerly, who predicts rainy weather by the rug in tlie judge's oflice, has been called ii[»on to make the "rug Hump again." - Adklns revealed that his ability lo forecast weather changes was due to Hie scams in the rug. He said they were sewt^with "weather stitches." Consequently, every time a change in the weather occurs from wet to dry, the hump comes in the rug. Court attaches said' Adkins' predictions are correct a greater number of times'than the weather bureau's forecasts. ) THIS CURIOUS WORLD V.
