For the former a good individual and community record means reduced premium rates; for the latter it means fewer payments fpr tosses. , In the bame way employers and insurance companies liave a common m- tefesfc in protecting workers against industrial accidents. A good safety - ' record means for the employer a reduced expenditure for liability insur- - aijce and for the insurance company fewer claims to pay. ' Similarly unemployment insuianco should provide an incentive for reducing unemployment. -That, after 'all, is the real goal. The paitial protection which mburaucc can piovido for the individual against the possibility of loss through unemployment is all very good, but it is no protection . al all' against society's economic loss through unemploymeni, any more than , • fire' insurance provides protection to .society against economic loss thiough • fire. 'Unfortunately in its present .'form 'jthk- social security act provides -ijo 'in- jyc'entiye foy combatting uiipinploymenl. •-Ill fact whatever effect jt may have seems likely to be in the opposite direction. For the act provides for the - payment of benefits to unemployed , • person^ out of a fund to be created by a tax on all payrolls. The employer who stabilizes his operations to provide year-iound employment, who keeps his workers on the payroll in slack periods, is taxed the same as the one who hires and fires to meet the exigencies of daily or seasonal icquirc- ments. The former, in fact, is penalized, for if l\e keeps waiters on the payroll when he docs not need them he must pay a tax on their salaries, while the employer who lays off his men at every opportunity saves not only their pay but the tax as well. ' Thus the " present plan penalizes the concern which pi ovules regular employment to compensate the victims of the irregular operations of other con- cerns. One sWe, Wisconsin, has an unemployment insurance system, established prior to enactment of the federal \-A\V, under which an individual reserve is set up for each employer. He pays only so much (ax as is nec ( cs- saiy to keep his reserve at the level established by law. If his employes enjoy regular work there are no withdrawals from his reserve and consequently he need make no payments. Such an arrangement is just, in that it requires no employer to pay the bill for unemployment in another's business j and it is wise because it affords an incentive for stabilizing employment, thus providing a remedy as well as a palliative for the evil of unemployment. The 'federal law should be changed to permit other states to adopt this plan. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Human Vultures According to labor men throughout the country, coitain atloiuoyii, claim Hgentics, nnd small loan comiwiies arc prcparisg for a bountiful harvest in handling old-age iiuuiiance claims. If true, it is just, another illustration of ttie way "ambulance chasers" nnd pthcr unclhicnl individuals or organizations leap on any chance lo prey upon the unfortunate. But the plans of such gentry lo enrich themselves at Dm expense oE needly old people may be balked, for the Social Security Board reveals that it machinery will be kept so simplified that workcis will need no assistance when their bonolits are due. Any aid needed in the filing of claims will be provided at a large number of (ield offices. HOLIDAY 8/ IDA ft. GLEASON © 19:6, NEA Service "'Meiry Cluisfmas to Ue\!' Don't they know that'he's a dog?"

Biit young do Forest \vas nowhere to be found, and, after wandering aimlessly about the big rooms for several;minutes without seeing:even a servant, Bob stepped into a small library. The room was lined \vith:books, from floor to ceiling, and had two massive carved chairs facing the fireplace. These chairs had very high baclts. Ramon ; Vasquez was standing by a window, "Looks like a long session, even if we weren't held here by what happened last night, doesn't it?" Bob asked. 'HE other man nodded, then •*• scowled daikly "Yes—but if they wanted to, they could get those Mexicans to work clearing .1 path for a car Has anyone come from down below ,yet, do countered. "He was certainly ar- bi(ravy about- things last night." Ramon lighted a cigarct before he answered, and Bob noticed that now every trace of his nervousness had disappeared. "Then you think Pearl Pierre is deliberately holding Us here for some purpose of his own, do you? How about the younger brother?" "He's a. regular fellow in my opinion," Bob answered, "and I believe he'd do everything he could to help get us and the girls put o£ here. If necessary, we might be able; to force them to send someone down for . . ." The words froze on his lips as Pearl Pierre's voice broke in from the doorway. "Not at all necessary to do that, my dear Mr. Graham. Everything has been attended to, I assure you, and the officers will be here before long." He looked at the two younger men for a minute, as though he were enjoying their embarrassment. Then he walked away. "A tricky devil, if one ever lived," muttered Ramon Vasquez furiously. "He's certainly not doing the grieving act over his brother's death, is he'.' Nor Pearl John either. I think they're bolh rplievgd |hat he's out of the way, i£ you ask me." addressed the archeologist igain "Just how do you happen to Know 1.1 so much about things here, Pro- , [ fessor? And just what did you •> mean by saying the de Forests had different reasons '.'.or being relieved at Pearl Sam's death? 1 "I'll, answer your questions in tt order, Mr. Vasquez," Professor '{, Shaw replied. "To the first, 1'lljf remind you thai it's my sion to notice things. A trained scientific man picks . up details that others might consider worth- t less. And, remembei I hive been L here on the mesa for several, weeks. About the de Forest brothers, I am certain that Pearl 581 Pierre is enjoying his new position as head of the family. , "And Pearl John?" asked Bob.J "You can't say he \\anted to slay,. | here with this crew. "That's just it," the professor! went on. "He most assuredly did f not. But Pearl Sam hel against his wishes you know? -. They might get tinough on hoiseback" "Aie you sui'e Pearl Pierre sent for anyone?" Boh "asked. "He seems to have his own ideas of handling 'this affair without much concern about the law." AN odd chuckle, coming from •^ one of the chairs in front of the fire, made both men turn with a start. Professor Shaw peered at them around the high-back of one of the scats. "Pardon : my interruption," . he said,' :t but, youi)g man, you were so right about that ihat it'amuses me. Both the de Forest brothers are relieved that Pearl Sam it gone—but for different reasons." Ramon strode over to the professor, his face dark with rage. "What do you mean, Professor Shaw, hiding there listening to what we were saying?" The older man iose deliberately and faced him, holding up a long thin hand. "Now, now, young man—don't go flying off like that! I was here first, doing a little research work." Ramon looked at the older man for a minute witl:6ul speaking. Then he turned, with an expressive shrug. "Of course we have no choice but fo accept your story, Professor Shaw." He look a quick turn or two about the room, then ypu seem to 1 no\/ so f "'much, Professor Bob said t l moving a step nearei how about that Indian who's always at the I top of the trail? That queer look | ing knife that was sticking out o£^ Pearl Sam's throat wasn't a white' man's knife, you know:' "Ah, the sacred obsidian knife!' The professor's eyes glowed with; sudden interest. "It was most! ancient. Perhaps the most ancient object on this continent A veiy ' very old Indian aitifact which *' was probably used sacrificiallv m the kivas of some forgotten lace | That knife was the reason for my':<< being here.

"And just where was the knife^ kept?" interrupted Ramon. \ For a moment there wis only^] the crackle of the flame in thcj big fireplace, as they .waited In-/ tently for the archeologist swer. That ,\vas why no one no-1 ticed Pearl John in the doovway.S "Why, yes," Professor Shav/a| finally said. "The obsidian Knife ^ was usually in i small vail safe in Pearl Sam's private office. , .."Except on the day Pearl Samg was murdered with; it," Pearls John said sternly. ' He walked diiecllj o\ei to Jhe t Professor, adding •sigmfic^'ily "You haven't forgotten ha\fc yiu , Professor-Shaw that you iskedn for that knife yesterday so >ou 1 could examine it under your nii-^ croscope?" | (To Be Continued) 3 Carutliersville Society — Peisonal /%> ERUPTION GP MONT ppff tr, IN MARTINIQUE, WEST INDIES, IN I9O2, DESTROYED 3O 3 OOO HUMAN i.<VES IN FIFTEEN MINUTES. u „ The common lilac, st^ate flower of New Hampshire, anil one; of the most popular of all flowers to hold a state flowership, is a native of eastern Europe.

Examination of theso cescs may fnll lo reveal tiny pliysical condition which to be primarily responsible, Recent' Investigations have shown that filling of the teeth on opposite sides . with. dissimilar tals may actually result in setting up • electrical manifestations anc cau^c burning of tb'e' tonyuc; occasionally even Irritated patches will appcaa. There are. of course, oilier conditions In which the burning and liritation 'of (lie tongue are entirely nervous. This may be Ihc reason in-cases of-hysteria, loco- motor alaxla, or other ailments In which the nervous system is seriously upset. If a nervous disease Ls responsible. It may be controlled, but In some Instances . no .such condition can be fouml. In these cases, the use of psychologic treatment, including suggestion, may minimize, if not end. the disturbance. * * » Certain types of changes in the tongue are extraordinary, and arouse a great deal ot interest among doctors. Sometimes the surface of the tongue, instead of being smooth, becomes marked by tlccp furrows OUR BOARDING HOTJ5E With Msjor HoGjpl(| ind elevations. As n result, it ooks like a mnp. The condition s aplly called "geographic tongue. The furrows of coulee arc due to development of thick patches on' he surface. The condition usually tends to! disappear if tlio victim uses mouth \yaslios and mild antiseptics, and adopts n well-balanced diet, particularly one rich In vitamins and in anti-anemic substances, such ar, iron and liver. This condition of the tongue seems to occur most often In families. There is. therefore, some Question as to whether the con- riiiion is heredity, or occurs in families because members ot each group lend to have similar diets and habits of life. . • » Another extraordinary condition 1 is called "black tongue." This Is usually associated with ;u, en- Inrgcmcnl of the tongue tissue to-that It has n hnh-y appearance; thus, the appellation "hairy tongue." Various types of organisms have been blamed for this condition, but- none has been found invariably responsible. In every disturbance of the tongue, the condition should be studied by a physician, who will tiy to determine the cause ol the disturbance' and treat it accordingly.
