Our Faoorite Flower The. nafionaj poll by which the American Nature Association .sought to learn what flower should be chosen as the country's national bloom has just ended, with the wild rosa far in the lead. The \vjld rose sot upwards '• of ,490,000 out of the 1,OG7,G72 votes cafct; \and the • columbine, 100,000 votes behind, came in second. It is rather interesting to note that such popular favorites as the violet, thq dogwood, the mountain Inure! and the goldenrod lagged far in the rear, receiving only a fractional ]x>r- centage of the total. Whether we really need a national flower,' and whether one can be chosen out of hp.ml by popular vote, are other questions. For the moment, at least, the wild rose seems to have first call. And if this national poll will induce a few 'Americans, this .spring, to go hiking through the meadows and woods instead of motoring along hard-surfaced roads, it will have justified itself amply. Getting Rid of Details Every school boy is familiar with the copybook maxim that one slioitM ; do things oneself if one wants to make .sure that they are doll" nrp- erly. • : Modern business, however,, steps on that maxim a little bit more i'irn.ly each year. ,• The current issue of The (Jolden.

' .-'.'I must confess that my system rests 'on : the.. self-admonition of 'Never do "anything ; yourself that you can gel someone else to.do for you.'" ••.' For the young man holding his first job, of course, this is punk advice. But for, thV executive it !a excellent. Many a'good executive h : been i-inned •because he did not '.::.- ,\- how to put the -handling of detail, .n the hands of .his subordinates. Failure In the Office The news from the London naval conference continues to be discouraging;. It is gradually becoming ap- OUTOURWAY parent that there is small chance for any real reduction in naval strength; indeed, any agreement that is reached is apt to result in more naval building rather thnn less. This is doubly hard to take because the country had such high hopes when the conference opened. Ramsay McDonald's .stirring remark of last fall—that people everywhere must be prepared to "fnk<: risks for peace"— seem;-, to hnve been forgotten. None of the nation.; iwpresejitcd at the conference appears in ;i mood to risk anything. t Failure of the nnv.il confeicnce would be a dismal eiidmj,' to a groat woik that liml a brilliant beginning.

SIDE GLANCES By George Clark The Heroism oj the Nurse There jiecrn to he certain classes of workers in this wintry from whom heroism can lie uxiwted almost as a matter of course. Tlio telephone girls, for instance, mnkc up such a class, [fiirdly any story of a flood or cyclone is complete without the account of how .--ome gallant "hello girl" stuck to her post in the face of (lunger in order to warn others. If you'll stop to think, we believe you'll agree that nurses belong in the same, cluss, only more so. In the Cleveland disaster dozens of nurses proved their selfless bmveiv— and many paid with their lives. Now, in the fire at Providence, where St. Joseph's hospital was destroyed, the rescue of 168 patients is ascribed, to the heroism of student and graduate nurses, working with nuns and policemen. The Problem of Hazing Hazing is .one of the perennial problems for trie American college. Kvcry college has it.s (roubles will, it at some time or another. Just now it is North Carolina Stnl.- that is the unlucky institution, with three -students expelled for the offense and several more under investigation. • The facts in the case are of the usual kind. Oiiiyttulcnt was pulled mil of bed by masked invaders aiul beaten so badly that he was painfully injure,! Several other students were forcibly given gvolesiiiiu hair cuts. Just: what it is that makes intelligent young men carry: on activities like tins is n puzzler. Ono would suppose that a college man, of nil people, would be above such idiotic barbarities. But the trouble crops out .in all colleges. It almost makes one suspect that there is a hidden, in-born streak of cruelty in 'the American character. Most people tire worrying about the Income tn.v, but the real fret still (s how U,c outgo taxes us. "Are you the short musknil with the large collar?"

"(WELL'S BIRTH On March! 1, 1837, William Dean Howells, American novelist, poe 1 and critic, and often referred to a"the dean of American letters" was born at Martin's F^rry. O. Studious as a boy.

In 1860, in his 23rd year he wrote-a campaign "Life of Lin- toln," in recognition of which he icceived the next year the Venc- liun consulate. In his four years abrcad in that post, he is said to have done his country a great, service in interpreting, through hi? writings. America to Europe.

Krtitor Journal of the Ani.TjC.v.i I Mrrtic.il Association and of Hy- C cia, Ihr Health Ma-niin:- I One of the first symptoms of common cold Is ircc discharge of fluid from the nose. When the tody discharges fluid from any lis'no. the reaction is a protective cue. The fluid serves, first, of a'.l. Ic- \vash away Infectious and l^xlc material; second, to brlun to t'.ic- tnfccled spot the material frcin the blood which attacks the i:ermi. If the cold i;cc:> not pronnlly improve, the secretion stops anil th? nose becomes for a w'.illc quite dry. The organisms do nol hve In a dry slate nnd tend to rile 0:1 the surface oi the mucous mnr.brancs which then secrete fluid to remove the infectious material. Nol Infrequently the cold is n.) limited to the nose, but the Infection and Inflammation of thr membranes extends lo the lininc of the 'slmifcf. the large cavities ndjac'ii to the nose cavity, which serve to pUc resonance to the voice and 'o w.um the air passing into t.'le lungs and for other purpjsrs A common cold \s not like other infccllons diseases, which occur once and then do nol usually a<o pear In the life of the individual | One may have a cold again and again for the simple reason thru the germs which cause colds maybe taken In with the air or on the hands or In various other ways nnd set up Infection whenever the mucous membranes are lowered in their resistance. Hence, most physicians recommend that, the one b:sl method (or prcvenlir.K colds Is to keep the body in as good a condition as possible. This is rtor.e by proper food, the proper amount of rest, exercise nnd fresh air. In many inslances the nose Is so conslructed that H is not possible to breathe easily through both dries; the air currents do not circulate properly, and the' obstruction prevents ih? discharge of material from (he nose. In such in- rlnucrs it may be necessary to opct, the breathing space by varlou- methods of lessening the size of the structures within the nose, by shrinking the membranes or by charges in the septum, Th.> tissues of the human body tend lo sell-regulation. However, they .-csixmd readily to abnormal conditions and if they are to regulate th«msclvcs well, they must b; given n fair opportunity. In many iiulniicus modern surgery is physt- olORic s.ygcry.

That's always the question of paramount importance Years ago folks asked it of the post rider, the soldier returned from the wars, the man who had been down to the settlements, or the neighbor back from the general store. Today, you find the answer in your newspaper. Through the newspapers the news of the world and of the community quickly be.comes public knowledge And remember this—it takes two kinds of news to make a modern paper complete. The first tells of happenings near and far—of fires, sports, elections, accidents, marriages, deaths, great men, great events. The second tells of things you eat, wear and use- things you buy, things being sold to your friends and neighbors. This news is advertising. It's just as important to keep up to date on the advertising in this paper as it is to read about what's doing in the world of events. Advertsing is an essential news service, it is distinctly to your advantage to be guided by it.
