Meeting the School Situation The not unjustified public resentment at the tuition charge for high school students which became effective yesterday should not, mid we arc confident, will not interfere with the ' continued effective functioning of the school system. A situation extending buck for u number of. years, for which the present school authorities cannot he held accountable, combined with such other circumstances as the failure of the six-, mill voluntary tax and the failure of valuations for tax pur|K>ses to Iteep step with the growth of the city, resulted in a condition that had to be met. The school board met it in what seemed to be the only practicable way available, and unless a bad situation is to be made worse the board should receive the help and co-operation of the community. It seems probable now that the tuition fees, while undoubtedly n severe burden upon the parents of many pupils, will not have llio effect of forcing any pupils from school. They should not be permitted to do so. Education must not be regarded as a (privilege to bo'enjoyed by the children of those in •comfortable economic circumstances. Rather it is an obligation of the community to all of its children mid one which, for its own welfare, it cannot afford to neglect. Every boy and girl in Blythcyillc is entitled to the opportunity of a high-school education, and -•' thobe pfcrenls wlio can'fiot pay the tuition fees should fed that in accepting Help to keep their children in school they are taking not charity but simply . what is their right. It is the hope of the school authorities that the new plan will not cause the loss of a single pupil. Sacrifices on the part of parents, well worth while, and help from the community at large, will make possible the realization of this • hope. Let us help meet the present situation in every way iwssible, but let us also insist that the tuition system be accepted only as an emergency measure, not as a permanent solution of a problem which it is the community's obligation to meet in another way. OUT OUR WAY One Obligation The most pessimistic predictions concerning the probable rcsultfi of the breuk in the Mijr Lake lovee last week apparently are finding justification ns the flood waters spread over the Little river bottoms. Several thousand people, a large part of them small farmers with few resources of their own, are-or shortly will be either homeless or dependent upon outside help for Hie necessities of life. Tim effect of the flood upon the economic life of communities outside Hie iiren actually inundated may or may not be serious. Cc'ilainly there is no reason, to .suppose that lilythcvillc, Osccola and other points in the eastern part of tlie county will suffer more than an indirect and minor loss. I3ut we have an obligation to tlie actual victims of the flood that outweighs any passible 1 influence the sii nation may have upon our own affairs. Tlie lied Cross, it seems evident today, will assume the full financial burden of caring for those left homeless or without means of providing for themselves. Hut much will still depend upon the people of this and other nearby communities —neighbors of (lie flood victims. The Red Cru?s and the local committee which has the situation in charge deserve and should have all the help that we can' give (hem. That does not mean that any of us should embark upon haphazard efforts to extend aid. It doss mean that all of us should stand ready to respond immediately and promptly lo any call for co-operation which may come through those who are in charge of the rescue and relief work.

MOBBIS FISHBEIN Editor Jonroil of the American Medical AiMclatlwi ind of HytcU Iht Health Maiailne In a survey of the Increased Incidence of undulant fever the condition now quite definitely associated with contagious abortion cattle, the British ministry of health has become convinced that tile disease Is actually Increasing In extent and that this Is largely due to the spread of the disease among the cattle. CoiUagious abortion occurs In goats, cattle, sheep, swine, mules, horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea- pigs, rats and mice and cases have been found even in chickens and ducks. It Is apparently the disease as It occurs In cattle however, which Is primarily related to undulant fever In man. in cattle, tlie condition may nqt produce symptoms sufficient to affect the animal's general health, although it does prevent the nor. inal birth of the calf. It Is the general opinion that cattle Infect each other through eating food which has been contaminated by litter in (he coa sheds or by eating grass In the meadows contaminated by the prod- cts of the disease. The germs re also to be found in the milk f an infected cow. Sometimes a ow. which Is otherwise quite leallhfnl, but which has become nfectcd with this disease, will se- rete milk containing the germs. Apparently the human being be- omes infected not only through drinking milk taken from a cow which has had the disease of con- asious abortion, but also from landling infected cattle alive or dead. Sometimes, farmers send to he slaughter house cows which have become sterils as the result of Infection.

L WASHINGTON LETTER Dc?pltr All tlie Uproar About Pro hihilion, K Ts Btcomins Apparent Hut Conjrcss May Dllch Frac tically All of President Hoo- vir's Program for Bel tcr Enforcement «y UODNKY DUTCHES j WASHINGTON—Such sincerity ns .here may be., in Congress is about o be tested In its action on the administration's new prohibition enforcement program. Up to the time this program was presented by the president, the National Commission on Law observance and Enforcement, Ihc attorney general and tlie secretary of the treasury, everyone here appeared s» rabid or panlc-strlcfccn on the subject that any such program presented seemed rather certain lo be made into law as soon ns Congress could jam it through. The dry majorities in both houses nrc so enormous that It Is a plat- tude In Washington that the drys can nave anything they want. And yet. on Capitol Hill, one encounters a feriing ol grave doubt as to whether mere than one of the administration's major rccom- inendnliciH will be enacted during this long session of Congress. That cue is the purely administrative matter ot translcriug control of enforcement from the Treasury lo the Department of Justice. The proposal is an old one and there aws only by extraordinary drastic ucasurcs. There are those who hiuk that the recommendations before Congress are very far Irom sufficiently drastic. Bishop Cannon IRS suggested a $200,000,000 appropriation and Dr. Clarence Tine Wilson of the Methodist Board of Temperance, Prohibition, and Pubic Morals recently favored use of Ihe army and the navy to enforce tiie lav;. BuV here you have Congress shying away even from a few changes In administrative detail and court procedure. The important angle is that even some of the most enthusiastic drys are openly objecting to the merits of the projxisals. especially in tin Senate. The .commission's recom mendalicns for the trying of many violations before the United State commissioners has come in for es pceially .hard knocks, with much worry about the danger of limiting (he right for trial by-jury. But proposal is of grcat'lmportancc. lo Commissioner Doran himself ha said that it won't do any good tc hire more prohibition agents unt the courts are speeded up. Even the proposal to transfer en 1= no ve:y gccd reason why it | forcement from Treiuury to Justlc should rot have been acted upon will encounter a Jam in the Sen years ago.
