Y.—The death rate from appendicitis in this country dropped almost 40 percent in the shore space of three years, between 1940 and 1P43, it is reported by the statisticians of the metropolitan life insurance company. Thn decline was fom fl.9 to 0.1 per 100,000, and there are indicaitons that the mortality has dropped still further in the past two years. Rhode Island ;uid Maine, according to r.he statisticians, led in the decline, each of these states registering n 62 percent drop in the three year period. Even Nevada, at the bottom of the list, showed an im- piovement of 19 percent. All the other states in the mountain and Pacific regions, however, registered larger relative decline than did vhe country as a whole. The least gains were made in the Southern states, but even there no state recorded a reduction of less than 27 percent between 1940 and 1943. "The recent decline in appendi- cities undoubtedly have been due in large measure to the use of chemotherapy in complicated by peritonitis," the statisticians point out. "But part of the credit belongs to the national educational campaign which effectively warned the public against delay in seeking medical advice and against the use of liixntives in the presence of abdominal pain. Tilers are still many lives needlessly lost each year from appendicitis. The campaign against the disease must continue until the toll is reduced to negligible numbers." What Can I Do for My Country?" has been announced as the theme of the eleventh annual nation-wide high school essay contest, which is to be sponsored by tht local Lndies* Auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in conjunction with the national organization.

Immunization Is Your Best Bet AUSTIN, March 14—"Immunization is superior to all other means of communicable disease control because immunity becomes part of oneself and is always there as a defense against certain diseases." This is' the statement of Dr. Geo. W. Cox, state health officer, who •rtdris: "Immunization is the best and most effective means of protection against diptheria, tetanus, small- iox, whooping cough and typhoid ever." According to Dr. Cox the ges that are best for immunization if children are: for diptheria and c-tanus, 9 to 12 months; Schick test months later, re-immunize if immunity has not been established; mallpo;:, 6 to 12 months, re-vacci- lation at 6 to 12 years; whooping cough, G to 12 months. Tetanus or ockjaw is not common, however vhen it C'.OPS occur it is usually fatal. The tetanus germ gets into cuts, scratches, abrasions and particu- ariy deep wounds, so that it has al- vayp been an important problem of )ublie health as well as military me dicine. Other ways to fight disease are through good sanitation meaures. The provision of safe water supplies, the pasteurizaion of milk the supervision of food and the precautions lave in many communities reduced ;yphoid fever to a minimum. Isolation and quarantine have their place and are extremely valuable, but none of them has the quality of immunity, of being a part of oneself und consequently always available. •Y GALBRAITh Q.

Pictured here arc the records of four "life lines" of our busi- •ness— four things which largely control the destiny of any business, ' whether it be a farm, a factory or a store. They are Wages, Materials Costs, Prices, and Profits. Suppose these were pictures of what is going on in your own affairs. How would you chart your future course from these facts?

WO Ml LI TTLE C PRICE HANCE . s o ^ • '4S •43 •45 •46 Using U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics with J94) prices equaling 1OO, prices of farm Machinery in 1945 were only J04.9. JVhat about wages? Wages have risen steadily for five years. Before the strike which began on January 21 in ten of our plants and which has choked off nearly all farm machinery production, earnings of employes of these plants averaged $1.15,'.^ an hour, not including any overtime. The , Union demanded a 34 cents per hour increase and a Government board has now recommended a general increase of 18 cents an hour, which would make average earnings $1.33 y- an hour. Weekly average would be $53.40. What about materials? No one seems to know how high : materials costs will go. The Gov, ernment has increased steel prices as much as $12.00 a ton, with an average increase for all grades of 1 8.2%. Steel is the most important 1 material we buy, but prices on other materials are also increasing. What about prices? There has been no general increase in our prices since they were frozen by the Government in early 1942. Since then a few small increases have been allowed where particular machines were substantially j changed in design. [What about profits? j Risk is part of the American profit ; and loss system, so we do not, of i <course, ask either our customers l>r the Government to guarantee , that we can be certain of profits eacTi year. The chart tells the Story of our profits during the war. ; Although Harvester produced ;more goods than ever before, it had no desire to get rich out of war, 'no our rate of profit has steadily i gone.4own. What our 1946 profit will be is extremely uncertain. What is the next step? I As you can see, our present situ- .ation is that with frozen prices [ and declining profits, we are asked to pay higher materials coats and to xnajtce the biggest wage increase 'in the history of the Company. Can we do thisV Wages and materials consume fll but a few cents of every dollar we take in. If our prices continue frozen. o»4 cost of wages and Prodi per dollar of sale has declined until in 1945 il was sUghtly leK (Han four cents, as against 84 cents in ]94f. materials continues to rise, obvi« ously our Company will begin to* operate at a loss at some point. The exact point at which oper* ating at a loss would start is a matter of judgment. Government agencies and union leaders may have opinions as to where thai point is. But if they turn out t« be wrong, they can shrug thei^ shoulders and say: "Well, it wasn'K my responsiblity. / didn't make the decision." The management of this Com* P any cannot and will not say that* I dares not gamble. It has to b* sure. Continuation of our service to millions of customers, the ft* ture jobs of thousands of era' ployes, and the safety of the in vestments of 39,000 stockholder* depend on our making as correct r decision as is humanly possible. What about future prices on farm machinery? The judgmentof Harvester's man* agement now is that we cannot safe* ly make the huge wage increase recommended by the Government until the Government authorizes, adequate increases in the price* of farm machinery to-cover th»' resulting increased costs. That is not a judgment that) makes us happy. The Company, does not want to raise prices. Wa, prefer to lower prices, when poSf sible, and we know our customers' prefer to have us do that. We have' produced at 1942 prices, and ho we could continue to do so, have delayed seeking general relief .in the hope that it could baj avoided. Now we are convinced that it cannot bo avoided ftny 1 longer. The price question must be settled. Until it is settled Wft 1 do not see how we can settle tha' wage question. Until th,e waga' question is settled we do not sea how we can resume production/ and begin turning out the machines which we kn,ow farmer customers need. Because of the important . which both farmers and city dw ers have in this controversy, are bringing thesp matters t@ attention.
