China Pays An Appalling Toll For Weakness Half M million people may starve to death Uii.s summer because of tlie drouth. Not in ;i eenliiry lists there been n drouth so severe. Crops have withered under ti blitzing KIDI which has kept, thc temperature at lir> tluj;n:un, day and night, for weeks. Rivers have dried, tip, springs have slopped flowini;. There is no food to Ijc had ;it all, over wide iireitR; Hi scores of villages mid towns even thq supply of drinking water h:is become exhausted. The federal government wants to do something to relieve siifl'eriug, but it is so weak, so overburdened with previous efforts to combat, the drouth and so short of funds that it is doubtful that it will be able lo do anything effective. » • • These few sentences present a living nightmare. They do not apply, of course, to the United Slates. They do apply, however, to China- They were taken from a recent news, dispatch telling of the horrible crisis which China is facing this summer. The Chinese drouth is one of the worst in living memory. So is the one .that has hit the United States. Indeed,"the weather seems to have been about tlie same in each nation—much heat, no rain, a steady depletion of all water supplies, a binning and blistering of all growing tilings. fn the United States it.has meant grail financial lo?s for the farmers and higher prices for the city dwellers. In China il is meaning nothing less than wide-suread .starvation—people dying by tfic scores of thousands because they cannot get food and water. • » • The contrast is instructive. The disaster, was the same, in each case; but in one laud (here was a social and economic organization capable of meel- ing the crisis, while in the other land there was not. In other words, these tenible natural catastrophes that come upon us every so often can be robbed of iheir worst terrors if society is organized to meet them properly. Mankind can triumph over nature if it will. Its worst dangers are those which come when Hie human element itself proves incapable of meeting the challenge which fate periodically otters. • A Curb On Greed The refutations laid down by the new Federal Securities and Exchange Commission contain rules designed to check simulation by corporation officials who like-to take little flyers in Hie securities of llicir own companies- Need of such rule was abundantly shown by disclosures made l>efore the Senate's famous slock markets committee. Case after case was cited in which corporation officials got more interested in making a stock markcl killing than in conducting the. all'airs of llicir corporation in the interests of its .stockholders. This 'not only led to a wholesale milking of suckers in Wall Street; all too often it .subordinated the rights of the genuine investor to the greed of Die s|)eailaling official—to the investor's direct financial loss. If thc commission is able lo curb such activities, business as a whole will be in much better .shape. Order In New Deal It is good (o learn thai thc president has ordered a full survey of all Hie "alphabet soup" agencies in Wa^li- ington, with a view to making their future activities more coherent and harmonious than has been the case in the immediate past. There has been''a good deal of confusion in the capital in the last few months. Part of it arose because .«omc of the innumerable agencies overlapped one mint her, and part of it came because there did not seem to be any definite course charted -for ;,]! 1 0 |u|. low. The conferences which President Roosevelt,.beginning .ought.;U> help end this confusion. The 'jobs that are being attempted are too large and too important to permit of any more drifting or working at cross-purposes. The big need of the day is to get all hands squared away and headed toward somo clearly denned goal. - OUT OUR t still believe Lenin n-as one of the most, masterful personalities of mudeni times. —Col.

SIDEGLANCE3 By George Ctorfc| Benzene Poisoning Shows Wide Increase In Industry "Why is she taking this cruise around the world, if it isn't to let her hair grow hack to i(s natural color?" Soviet Stamps Picture Horrors of War BV DR. MOfcRlS FISHRKIN Kdllor, -Jawul (Tike American .ApacUtiMi, int ol Hy- seia, Ihe Health Mafuiae As benzene and its products become more and more numerous in Industry, physicians continue to sec larger numbers of cases of persons who have been affected by benxeiie poisoning. In the rubber industry and in' ihn inaiifncture of varnishes particularly, .the use of benzene is coin moil. Gasoline Is, of course, a member of the benaene series of chemicals and is not nearly as jmisonous In Its effect on tlie nervous system as are other benzenes. Chief danger of this substance Is its effect on the blood. It not only causes a breaking down of [lie red blood cells and a diinhiu- tlon of the red coloring matter of Hie blood, but also may attack tlie while Mood cells and In that way threaten life itself. These ixiisons also seem to affect the walls of the blood vessels which they render fragile. In this way they predispose the person concerned to hemorrhages. Persons who arc affected by benzene poisoning bleed easily. The acute forms of poisoning with benzene usually l«gln as a result of some accidental situation, l-'or example, a worker may be asked lo clean the inside of a still or 11 lank or to paint the inside ol a Imk, using varnish or ben- zenc.
