Unfounded Criticism A correspondent answers n recent Courier News editorial on the local school situation with the following brief inquiry: "Don't you think the proper UUIIK 1<> •do would be to throw Ihe hunch in Hid Lake that's paying Greene ?<H)0 per month and allowing his secretary $260." Well, despite our high regard for Mr. Greene, we were at first moved to answer yes, provided, of course, such a "bunch", can be locnlcd. Bui wj happen to know that the board of education is not paying him thnt sum, or anything closely approaching il, and if anyone else is doing il our send agents,.whose business it is to know everybody else's business, have b:en unable to fin<i it out. A number of preposterous stories about the conduct of school affairs have been placed in circulation since the tuition system was inaugnrnUd. To believe them or to spread them is merely to make n difficult situation worse. The board of education has published financial statements at regular intervals, and all facts regarding salaries or other expenditures are easily available to all who will take Ihe trouble to ask for them. Serious mistaken in financial policy have been made in the past and must 'be- paid for now. It is at leail lo the credit of the present board that it is not seeking to pay current operating expanses with- bond issuej"- a course of action in former years I hat is largely responsible for the present situation. The school board's business is the public's business, and it is the privilege and the obligation of every citizen to keep informed of the conduct of school affairs and to lend his influsnce to their right conduct. lint criticism, to be of any value in the present situation, must be of a constructive nature. Mere complaining or .spreading of unfounded attacks is not going to help at all. King Boris of Bulgaria too-; the place of the engineer en his train recently and ran the engine a lew miles. It may seem strange to you, but the crew of the iraln is said to have "marveled at his skill."

You arc possibly neglecting the young minds for one cause or another. Possibly you do not mean to neglect your John, but for some cause you do It just the Game. Perhaps it's business, or money crave, or perhaps it's some evil something you let dwelt on your mind. 1 say, men, Jet your conscience oe your guide. God pity the man who is not big enough to waive aside these damnable temptations In this life. God elves us men, men who can stand the test, men who will stand out for the right things in this life, men who will stand for law cnlorcement ,men who will set examples. No one is against law enforcement except criminals and law- violators. So men, 1 ask you now, in Ihe name of God, set nothing buv good examples before our young men and boys. Our L-oys of today are our men of tomorrow. If you warn to be noble think of noble things. As we resolve Ihls 'year of nineteen and thirty, lets think of Ihings that are worth while. As a man thhikelh, so he is. Men, you should lake some lime and pay more attention to these boys of ours. One of these days Toll Taken By Heart Disease Is Mounting Higher Each Year EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is the first of two articles by Dr. Morris Fishbein discussing the future of heart disease. By DR. MORRIS FISHKEIN Editor Journal of the American Medical Association and of Hj- Ctia, the Health Magazine On any tingle day, there are in the United States approxldately 2,- CCMOO people suffering with heart disease. The mortality lias been steadily increasing rising in Chicago from a rate of 108.3 per hundred thousand In 1905 to 210.6 per hundred thousand population in 1925. For the whole country the rate was alnicst 300 per hundred thousand and Is almost double the rate for the next most important causes of (tenth including such serious conditions as cancer pneumonia, tuberculosis and diseases of the kidneys, Of the deaths occurring from heart disease 90 \Kr cent are in persons over W years of age. The disease 01 the heart represent the results of rheumatic fever occurring in childhood and of degenerative disorders occurring in middle life. Most of the consideration of tne future of hcait disease must take into account the trend they are going lo sit in the chair , ., -— that we fathers sit in today One " disease in general during of these days those boys are going p! \5i llB . lt "»' U1 7- to take over our churches, our Ihe . s od of approach lhat it-, gains its; presents the lale of these four It Calvin CODlitloe is gohuj to write a history of the United Stales in 500 words. Well, if anybody can do 11 Cal can. The Hoover crime commission gave the president a report before thi' $250,000 allotted lo it was used lip. That dccsn'i, sound like a legitimate commission. Instead of (lie sun tan complexion, "strawberry nntl cream" is lo be I::L> papula;- lint this year. Which pins an entirely different face on tho mailer. For Tonillmon makes- 1C plain lhat the weir was not a sud.lcn and unexpected catastrophe i men In n very beautiful, moving 'way; and If it fails to make your i eyes unusually moist, now and' again, you're a better man than I schools, our.prisons and everything lhat we now control. So let's wake up, fathers, and pay more attention lo our boys. Let's set good clean examples before these boys lhat will step in our shoes and lake over 0:1 r business and carry it on for generations to come. If u'e wilt teach these youmj minds the things that are good and clean and worthwhile ;l will grow up In them and they will be fit to sit Jn Ihe chair that we now occupy. They will be fit to run our business, cur churches, schools and our prisons, and first of all, this great government of ours. So wake up, you fathers, and pay more attention to your boys' young life training and welfare. Let we fathers be able to say just before we pass out of this life lhat we know our boys will bs able lo s'.ep into our shoes and carry on our business and our government as we wish it carried on. Let's hope to say more than that. We as fathers want to be able to say deep down In our hearts, just before wo go over the hill, that we know our !>cy will not fail old dad. Why? Simply because we have always set Gcod, clean examples for him to live and carry on by, that we as fathers have taught and trained that young mind the good and cleaner thliiys In life. .To my sorrow I haven't a boy of my own. only wish I did. I have a daughter, just one, almost, thirteen years of nge. Love her? Words fall to tell the story. She is- daddy's girl The increase in lifo expectancy from 35 years at birth to 65 years means that u much larger number of persons nre available to die at disorders, whereas many died at early ages from the infectious discuses which scientific medicine now prevents. The question has been raised as to whether the increase in death from heart- disease represents an actual increase in the incidence of such diseases, or whether It can be explained, as is the rise in mortality from cancer, by the fact that scientific medicine now makes much more accurate diagnosis, and by the Tact that people arc living 1011301- lhan formerly. Unquestionably both these factors are of the greatest importance. Tiie medical point of view toward heart disease has changed greatly In the past half century, Medicine was formerly concerned primarily the pathologic changes lhat took place in the heart associated with disease, and it, was customary to classify heart disease ecc:rding to the changes found after death. Next came the period of classification according to established causes, and in various clinics it- is now reccynixcd that rheumatic fever, In youth primarily but also at advanced ages, Is responsible for at least 50 per cent of all heart disease; that arteriosclerosis and degenerative changes in the bcdy are responsible for .some 35 ye-: cent; that syphilis produces thn changes in approximately 10 pe:- cent; that the effects- of over-activity of ihe Ihyroid gland may be resiKiisiblc for 1 per cent, and that diseases of unknown erigin arc responsible for the rest. If the human being passes through life without serious discaEe of any kind, his cells undergo a cyole which includes a period of growth, a peiiod of maturity, and a period of degeneration and 'An- ility. Obviously, it Is the hor.e of scientific medicine give to -nil mankind a life expectancy of approximately the three score year.-. and ten which Biblical legend establishes as the expctancy of man. The less of life before the period of maturity, due it heart disease, represents nomlc wastage. •wilh heart disease' costs at leas.-, SIOO.OCO.OOO annually. a tremendous ceo- The care of Ihuss and daddy's boy. I want to say to you men all over this wonderful land of ours I know 1 have dona things In this life just like many others that I should never have done. But there is a time lo sto these wrong doings and that company lhat you have allow*:! your boy to run with has taujbi that young mind the wrong evil things instead of Ihe -jood things in this life. I want to say Is no.w. Fut your foot on such things and keep it there. God pity the man that is so little that he cannot and will not resist these evil 'temptations and wrong doings for the sake of his boy and others. God give us men. I have come to know more about the lives of our young men fnd boys In the past three years that I have held a public office than I had ever known before. There has been young men that 1 loved arrested and brought into my court, to hi- judged and dealt with under the strong arm of the law. Why- were these boys arrested a n il brought into my court? Just this, fathers, and this alone:. you : or the stop i right here and now there's a prcc- liine ious few boys In this life that ever ' boys go astray if they have had the right teaching and training In their youu; life. I say to you fathers .what u you gain the whole world and IDS-' your soul or cause the loss of your son's soul? What have you profited'. 1 I say let's wake up to the facts.
