When he adds that getting tip in the morning is terrible and please send him a little extra spending money —parents ought not to get too worried about-what "poor johnnv" to going through. They aren't likely to if they remember how Johnny, or his elder brother, used to write the very same kind of letters from college — when Dad was paying a nice-sized check every month for his son's room and "board in an imposing fraternity house. And if Johnny 'comes home on furlough, sleeps until noon every day and cats as though he had been living on bread and water for six months.

Wert Optometrist 'HE MAKES 'EM SEE" Over Joe Isaacs' Store Phone 540 IIIILTPELLIICIIII BIRMINGHAM. Ala. (UP) - Dr. Tom Spies, who began a campaign to control pellagra after his mother died of the disease when he was a child, reported today he had treated more than 4000 cases in five years without losing-a patient. Dr. Spies studied medicine at the University of Cincinnati, but it was m the South where lie found the natural laboratory for his work—in the meat, meal and molasses belt of Alabama, where pellagra raged unchecked among poor people." Five years ago Dr. Spins obtained leave of absence from the Cincinnati school and went to work at Hillman hospital here with money supplied by various health foundations. He began experimenting with nicotinic acid, which a German scientist had developed in 1867 from nicotine, a deadly poison First he injected the acid into his •cwn body, preferring to risk his own life rather than those of actual pellagra sufferers. When he suffered no ill effects from the injections, he began treat ing the men. women and children who locked to the hospital seeking relief from tile disease which had sapped their vitality. Among the. 4UOO cases treated in the last five year, Dr. Spies said were many advanced ones who seemed to improve "almost miraculously." Many who had been confined to asylums with insanity resulting from late stages of the disease were able to return to their families. With his anti-pellagra work far advanced. Dr. Spies is branching into other fields of medical research. Preliminary studies have - led him to believe that- pyorrhea. forerunner of tooth decay, may be due to some form of diet deficiency. He predicts that the time is not- far away when bakers and other food manufacturers will place vitamins and nicotinic acid extract into basic foods to forestall such maladies as pellagra, scurvy and pyorrhea. igratory Children Seen As Menace To Health Standards Uy Dr. HiVluuxl Arthur Holt Director. Cleveland Child Health Association 1 Written for N'K.V Service The automobile and the trailer have produced a K rciip of migratory children in America. They have, in the opinion of most public health officials, become n menace to national health .standards through no fault of their own. With no fixed abode, urecnrious living- conditions, exposure to ninny himml.s. menial, moral and physical, these children are "rowing up without health safeguards or educational ncivantages—.scarcely a desirable condition in n democracy. It is estimated that more than half a million children each year are traveling w ith migratory families, living in trailer camps. Some are setj up on .sanitary plans and are properly inspected, but there are all too many where no safeguards exist. IMNGtiK TO LOCAL 1IKAI.TH CONDITIONS The water supply may be bad, lack of sanitation may draw flies and nits. Food is .scanty, poorly prepared and poorly balanced. Irregular hours, constant elmnge and disturbed environments make it difficult to get proper rest. The promiscuous mingling of children and adults increases the dangers of infection.
