Census Will Tell The country's great need of an exact and authoritative census of the unemployed is graphically revealed by the great variations between the different estimates of the number of people who are out of work. The U. S. Chamber of Commerce believes that there tire some -1,000,000 jobless. Harry Hopkins puts the number at upward of 7,000,000. The National Industrial Conference Board puts the total at 8,975,000. The Alexander Hamilton Institute says if, is 10,887,000. Doubtless all these estimates are made on different bases, so that if they were properly "weighted" there would be much less variance. But the wide range they cover indicates very clearly that we shan't ' be able to get an intelligent idea of the real size of the iindmploymcut pioblcm until we have a definite count of heads. resisting the Italian columns. Nevertheless, you are lucky if you can find a small item about the Ethiopian situation i» the back pages of your new.s- paper. Now newspaper front~ pages are crammed with pictures, maps, and details qf the civi) war in Spain, Lefts hope that a yciir from now a greater conflict will not have usurped the front pages. If it's hard to believe that may happen, remember that, a year ago, there was no oulwnrd .sign of a coming Spanish war. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Growing Menace Of wha), use is it to guard a child from dipliOicriu If lie is to bo killed by an automobile? This was the essence of criticism directed against public health officers by Dr. Edward S. Godfrey jr., New York slate commissioner of health. Dr. Godfrey is disturbed by the .fact that few health officers or departments are devoting any ntlciition lo prevention of injury and death from accidents. Instead-, he indicates, they are conlent to leave such prevention "to other agencies or to Hie will of God, concerning themselves solely with problems of diet and contagion." In his belief, health departments havo their greatest responsibility in the field, of home and public accidents; " Vv'ith the death rate from in- feclious diseases decreasing, a n d deaths frqtai; accidents mounting, it seems logical that, as Dr. Godfrey suggests, health authorities attack the growing .menace. _.2J Peacetime Tragedy • In St. _Chamits, a little town near Marseilles, France, a great powder factory blew u]) the other day, with a tremendous explosion that was heard 20 miles away. More than 100 people were killed or injured. Every family in the town had at least one member working in the factory, and long after the blnst^ relatives still' wore winder- ing distractedly through (lie streets, seeking loved ones. It was a deeply tragic happening, but it geejns a bit ironic, as well. For 'the explosives those people were producing doubtless were intended to cause far greater catastrophes, in some futme wartime. And whereas France was stirred by the St. GluiTmis tragedy, the war deaths doubtless would be acknowledged by a shrug and a "c'est la guerre." "It's nothing Bcrious, officer. The whole thing, starle when they got into an argument over which should be allowed to pay the dinSer check." Future War Loss than* a year ago newspaper front pages were crammed with pictures, 'maps, and details of the war . between Italy and Ethiopia. To a certain degree, that war is Ktill going on.

Snow plows- had at last opened the highway passing the farm; telephone trouble shool- ers had repaired the wires. It was possible to send word to anxious relatives, possible to go by car to the nearest town and so continue to New York by train. .Mavcia dispatched two telegrams by way of the telephone, one lo her father's ofilcc in New York, to be relayed lo him in I Florida; and one to Helen Waddell, with a request thai the news oC her safety be given to the Canfield servants and lo her friends, of the visit of several young matrons to Helen \Vaddell, as Marcia's closest friend, in mid-afler- rioon while Marcia's train was drawing close to New York. As women, these young wives of men who had lost money through Kendrick were not as willing as their husband!; to forgive and forget a financial misfortune at the hands of a friend. Their spokesman, over the lea- cups which Helen brought.out for her unexpected callers, was Mrs. Charles Horton. "H's all around town, my dear," said Mrs. Horton, "thai Marcia knew where Frank was and flew out to meet him. Do you suppose that's Into?" "Don't you think Marcia should have the opportunity of giving her own answers?" retorted Helen. "II doesn't seem very friendly, I must say. She'll be home Ihis evening. Why should we talk about her in the meantime'.'" "Well—except lhat it would be rather embarrassing to go to her and ask the blunt question.

The news lhat March) was safe spread quickly through Bobbs Neck, and the hours of neighborly anxiety came to an end. There •followed, so paradoxical are human sympathies, a period of mounting hostility.

There's the telephone now. Shall I tell them you cannot be disturbed?" "Why, no," said Marcia. "I'll talk with them." 'Awkins reported that Helen Waddell was on flic wire.

The modern dispenser of eyeglasses considers the shape of the face of the person who is going lo wear the. glasses, (lie deformities of his eyes, and many other faclors. Eyeglasses may be used to correct ncaisightcdness. tarsighled- ness, nslisnialisiii, failure of the eyes lo work together, and trouble with focusing, as well as cyc- slraln. As they get older tome people need two sets of eyeglasses,'or bifocal lenses which make It unnecessary lo keep changing from distance glasses lo reading glasses and vice versa, Eyeglasses have been developed even with irlfocal lenses, jirpiding for three different distances. f-| For certain vciy severe conrii- Uons of (he eye there are available telescopic lenses, But lhc« arc cs- ccdingly expensive and llieir use- fulnss has been greatly exaggerated by some of the people who sell such glasses primarily (or profit, A recent development is a new kind of eyeglasses that arc Invisible and can be worn under llie eyelids.
