lecord Proves Progress Made By Scientists YORK, N. Y. —"Striking evidence of the progress of medical and sanitary science is the fact that our country has not had a major epidemic in a generation, and in the past half century we have experienced only 'one serious outbreak— the influenza epidemic of 1818-1919," according to Dr. Louis T. Dublin, second vice-president and statistician, of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. On the eve of the 100th anniversary of the American Medical Association, Ci. Dublin notes that tht prevailing mortality a century ogo was from two to three times what it is at present, nnd that according to modern standards, the death rates from some of the infectious diseases were incredibly high. "It was not unusual," Dr. Dublin states, "for the death rates from typhoid fever and from diphtheria to exceed 100 per 100,000 population; at present, there are cities Which havo not had f>. single death from either of these diseases in years. The death rale from tuberculosis in many ureas was well above 300 per 100,000; today, there are 10 States with rates under 25 per 100,000. Especially heavy wus the loss of life in infancy and early childhood, nearly half the total deaths from all causes occurring under age five." In addition, epidemics of cholera, yellow fever, .smallpox, and other diseases periodically ravaged the population. A yellow fever outbreak in Philadelphia in 1733 ; carried off more than one eighth of the population, and only five yoars later 7DAYJ5AWEEK SIMMONS Grocery & Market We have what you want — or will ffct it for you! 1213 AIcocli Phone Borger Iliway 171" Does Stomach Gas and Make Miserable?

"Many of the disease'; which in yean; past took a heavy toll of life have been stamped out, While others have been reduced to minor proportions."

HOLLYWOOD—Are you tired of living a dull, humdrum existence? Da you got bored with your daily routine. Would you like to live ?.n exriting-, glamorous life? Well, you can. You can be a motion picture star for the small insignificant, sum of Sail. Now if n't that a stupid bit of chatter? Rut you'd be surprised at the mimbt-r of suckc-rs who fall for that same routine in Holly- > wood every year. We cull it the J phony littie theater lacket. IJul before I te!l you any more about it, I want to make it plain (hat there are many jjuod, leRi- timalc little theaters in Hollywood and its neighboring towns. The good ones provide a great opportunity for young talent. But where you find the good, you also find the bad. There are any number of shady operators in the little lhe.il or racket who wait, behind the bushes of fancy promises for Little Red Hiding Hood to come clawing into Tlbllywood looking for fame. HOMETOWN SENSATION Let';; lake the case of Sadie Jom:s. Back home she is the sensation in the senior pltiy. So Fi.v'fg boards the train with a box ol c.nndy, her first orchid, and a head full of hopes and dreams. She has the idea that the train slops at Stage •J at M-G-M. But when she gets to Hollywood. Sadie can't even find a studio for the first three weeks. Pour months of tramping around to easting offices wears down her morale. Then along comes Mr. Phony Little Theater with the offer to give her a part in his play for the little sum of $50. He tells her that the audience: will bt full of talent scouts and she's a cinch for pictures. So she pays her $50. But she also signs a contract Sadie probably has no more talent than a scars-crow. Bui dues he tell her so after the first week and advise her to go back home and study home economics or marry her favorite boy friend? No. He- continues to hold out false hopes and collects more money on a regular weekly or monthly basis. TWO-WAY TAKE Now say that Sadie has lots of talent. She dors a couple of performances and Konif alert talent scout signs her to a studio contract. She makes money. But she suddenly discovers that "the phony little theater con- tiact which she signed has a little clause in tine print, just a little sentence she failed to read. It's a two-way take for the phony confidence men of the unprinci- paled racket operating under legitimate name. These few give the Whole Hollywood little theater business a black eye. The little theater has a definite and much-needed place in Hollywood. It discovers and develops talent for the entire entertainment inductr}. But unless Hollywood cleans out these phony racketeers who rob and cheat new talent that come to our town, we may find the time when the whole little theater structure will go to pot, and \ve will have no training ground for our future stars. $2,500,000 FIRE THOYES, Frtuice — ift't -• Fire which started last night in gu.-» line storage tanks here caused damage estimated at 300.000.000 franc:.
