JULY Zl, W\\ BEADY WHEN NEEDED There is nu better baruinetor of the uf a nation tlian tlie activities of its industries. Nu nation is better prepared to meet an emer-etu-y tlmn are its industries. Tliis was dramatically proved in the preparedness of private enterprise in the United States to implement the war demands of our government, Kven in the extraordinary things, American industry was prepared. For instance, how many people think of the infallible organixati'Jii reijuired to aid in the. vital .Hed Cross hloud plasma work;' Rapid movement of the precious fluid from 'the donation centers to tiie processing laboratories is as imperative ;rs securing the blood. This problem was left in the hands of the express industry, as part of the day's work for its coordinated system of collection and delivery facilities in every corner of the nation. It. uses specially equipped ret'ritreratot- containers for conducting the transportation under the temperatures required. A "recent survey shows that in JfM-3. approximately 2,875,000 pints of blood reached the laboratories for conversion into dry plasma within 24 hours after donation by the public. While our country was supposed to be unprepared, the dictators overlooked the fact that its strength was in'the alertness and initiative of free enterprise, as compared with the stunted vision and lack of incentive in government-owned activities in foreign lands. THE BIG STICK The recent death of Gen. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., .in the fighting field, where .he had acquitted himself with honor, naturally recalls exploits of .his still more famous father. One seems strangely appropriate at the moment. In if>02, England, Italy anil Germany found Venezuela owing them sums which they were unable to collect. They declared a blockade. President Teddy urged that, they refer the claims to the tribunal ;\i The Hague, established three years ho fore. England and Italy were •willing to try to get their moneys legally. Germany was not. International law meant nothing to her. So 'President "R nose veil sent our whole fleet .under Admiral George Dewey, who had had an important part in winning the recent Spanish war, down off the coast of Vtjncxuela on maneuvers. The Germans looked at it—and promptly gave in. "Speak softly, and carry a big sunk," was one of T. .K.'s famous slogans. The Germans, arrogant, cruel, unwilling to observe legal restrictions or any demands of common humanity, now see our .Big Stick Corning. Force is one thing they understand. VALOR AND VICT.ORY Visiting the American Fifth Army in .Italy, Secretary of AV'a'r Stimsun' announced that "the thrill of victory is in the air everywhere." He did not overlook the fact that the fighting men facing him. and their brothers on other fronts, were the fellows winning that victory. •'I have conic a long way to see this sfcht," he ^aid. "And it was worth coni- ' ing for. The people back home have followed your course on the road to Borne •with pride and admiration. You need have no fear. They will welcome you home, with the heartiest of good will and the g'reatest. of gratitude," They will, indeed. For the citizens'at home know TIOW how great was the peril from which our armed fom-s have ros- cuccl us, and the price that so many of them have pmd to do it, DO YOU REMEMBER?.

It is entitled.—Man's-Food, ts.Rhyme or Reason, by Mark Graubard, of .the Department of Siology at Clark-University ' (Pub- ished by The MacMiilan , Com- iany, New York). The emphasis is upon the social, onsciencc of'the food expert, not is .convictions about physiology, i-ood plays too -great a part in the •cncral health of mankind'to have ts choice left to crop conditions, lie whims of the agrarian pro- ucers, to economic depressions or 3 the prejudices and religious aboos oC different groups. No man should be allowed to go n in an enlightened community ating just what he likes or what is whims or prejudices dictate. That is the thesis of Dr. Graubard's •eatise. It is a large order so far ! its practical enforcement is oncerned. but I would be the last, o say it should not be tried. We are very far, in this land of lenty. from any real familiarity ith the spectacle of the social onsequonces, of the effect on the norale of a population of not citing the right kind or food, ut it is probably happening every minute in some pnrt of the globe. Experience* With Heribcrl Think of the experience given, n the graphic words of R. R. Williams, the Boil Telephone chemist who discovered Ihc nature of Vitamin B.'"On several occasions in the absence of a medical -associate, I went at the call of a health inspector to the Tond slum district of Manila to attend, without benefit of medical certificate reported cases of beriberi. Often I dosed the baby myself to be sure to get as much of my precious preparation inside and as -.little outside as possible, and sometimes sat down beside the nnxio-JS mother on the split bamboo floor of the little nipa shack to await results. Within as little ns three hours I'have, seen the. cessation of the weird, almost soundless crying, which, duo probably to' paralysis of the larynx,'is; characteristic 1 of the last stage of." the malady. Easing oCth'o gasping breathing soon followed, and then occurred the smoothing of the wild pulse, the fading of blue lips.. i a hungry nursing, and peaceful sleep." Such spectacles as that must never happen in a world governed by an onlighleneTl social consciousness, The knowledge of food today is not any longer a mass ot haphazard guesses or tradition. It. is, as exact a science as can be found' in tHe realm of • physiology and-' what men ate to eat is no': to be I controlled by the screams of some 1 , long-haired nut-chewcr from the., backwoods. . . • ::.••• Use of Meat A graphic illustration of the difficulties is found in the use of j meat. Scientific, dietectics states that provided it is hygicnically prepared meat is one of the best of foods. It is a bettor source of protein than vegetables. We have no scientific evidence that the protein in beef is any better or worse than that of pork, mutton or horse meat. Yet the religion of the Hindu prevents him-from eating beef, the' religion'of the orthodox Hebrew, prevents him from eating pork, the religion of the Brahma prevents him from eating meat of any kind, an'cl the prejudices of the Anglo Saxon prevents .him. WASHINGTON IJy HELEN ESSAKY (Central Tress Columnist) Reporters Find De A Long Nose But Gaulle No Compromiser Not One To Be Or Diplomat . Carelessly Tweaked • WASHINGTON—It was evident ' that the pink roses and delphinium : on the side table of the residence i at 2929 Massachusetts avenue, where Gen. Charles DC Gaulle held his first American press conference, had been to a party the night before. A dinner party surely. The flowers were arranged with thai mathematical firmness thai florisis exhibit on cenicrpicces. While the general was having his 'Washington inquisiiion done inio French by an interpreter, my mind suddenly leaped back to the pink roses and delphinium I had seer, several years ago in the same room of the mansion at 2929. That centerpiece, had also adorned a dinner party; that was where I met it. It was a dinner party given by the then German Ambassador Hans DicckolT noi long before his recall lo Berlin. Dr. Dieckofl hud been doing his diplomatic best to "sustain friendly relations beiween Germany and Ihc Uniled Stales." Thai is what the agreeable and shrewd German said he was doing. He said il in manner and gny conversation to one of those famous cross-sections of Washington who were guests at his dinner. He said it a few days Inter in this very room at his last press conference as German ambassador. Before Dieckoff's . occupation of 2929 the house had been used by the then Hungarian ambassador, Szchcnyi, And now this morning 'its walls were listening in on a French military man's belief in the not distant liberation of France. Quite a person this French military man, De Gaulle. Not a compromiser. No', a diplomat. He made it quite clear before and after translation that he meant to look at'tor the interests of France no matter what happened to any other i country or its peoples. Rather a blunt fellow. But spirited. And cheerful. His forthrightncss matle a good impression. Not too handsome, nor too beguiling, he looked a true Gaul—no pun intended—wiih his long nose and sloping shoulders. A long, nose, certainly. But not a .nose to be tweaked carelessly. Nor were- the .sloping shoulders to be pushed out of tnc way without ,1 good deal oT force in the push, A self-confident fighting man. That is how DeGaulle appeared to'me. from meat and he would'.view the dinner table of the ^Frenchman .'on horse meat day jyith disgust-amounting to 1 revulsion. Is this rhyme or reason? Dr. Graubard thinks it is merely dhyme. .1 agree, but I-can sec practical difficulties in imposing pure reasoh;on the world in the matter of food habits, . QUESTIONS-AND ANSWERS H. C.:—How would you explain a continuous rectal temperature of 100 and'at the same time a-normal temperature by'.mouth? '.'Answer: This is .normal for everyone. L, G. W.:'—Can you settle those questions? A. says cancer can be seen in an-X-ray. B. says not, telling how .a patient was operated for''ulcer, but when opened was found full of cancer, after, having X-rays taken.. Answer: "The X-ray .will show some but not all cancers. It shows ! lung, bone and most stomach, rectal and bowel cancers. A few can- | ce'rs of the stomach appear to look like ulcers, so the mistake men- I tipned sometimes occurs. The X- | i-ay is no more in fallible than any | other'.method' of - testing-that has | to be interpreted by human beings. ' The !ast time 1 hnd been in this room of 292U, tharc had been views of the Rhincland and . ot the cathedrals of Cologne and Dresden on the walls. Now old French prints spotted the pale gray background. The last time here I had heard a foreign dignitary explain the position of his country and'his own position-to the American public by way of the press. The air reverberated slightly to Teutonic gulteraJs. Today there was a pleasant hiss of French sibilants. i . At the beginning of the con- I •f.e'rencc, the general responded I quietly to the questions asked him. Gradually, as he sensed the friendliness of the group about him and recognized his own opportunity, he grew more, shall I say. typically French. Each time he said "Franco," .1 true Frenchman speaks it "Frohnzz," there was a special emphasis in his voice. Sometimes he pounded the table for "La Prurie." Again ond again ' the same p h r a ? e.s — "Lee - bear - tay and Frohnzz"; "Nnygo-sheOf-ash-ce>un avcc Laz- Ata- You-Nce"; "Lcc Grand-urc of Frohnz?."; "arrange- mon pra-tiquc"... ."Meel-ee-tnire," "vic-tor-co," sounded in a tone of independence. Generally independent was the attitude of the visiting Frenchman. "The capital of France was, is, and always will be Paris!" This trifling around with temporary capitals in Algiers and towns in France was only a contusion of the moment. Of the fuiurc of "FrohnzK." Monsieur Ic General has no doubt. "The French empire —?" "Ah-h-li-h!" (It was the sort of an exclamation that could .not have been heard by 'a pre-war American tourist without travelers checks, a passpor, a trip across the bounding 1 'Atlantic .and an entry into a complicated French port. And now it was being spoken with practically no cost at all to the American tourist and taxpayer. Except of course some' Icnd-lease millions which nobody pays any attention to nowadays. "The French empire— Al —it \vill be complete again." "With Indo- Chir.a?" . . ."Ah-h-hh; Nature! 1- niont," ••\Vhy, it might have been Winston Churchill telling the House of Commons about the British empire after the war.

Somehow they got separated and !he youngster was alone iM flic big city. Did she cry? Did she run to a policeman? No, very calmly, she walked in!o one of the biggcsl banks on Fil'.h Avenue and asked for the 'man agor. . "I want to -apply for a loan," s!io .said in her most dignified niann-r when shown to the official's desk. Somewhat taker, aback, t-he manager asked: "And how much of a loan do you require, madam?"

The girt told him (hat sho had lost her mother in Hie crowd, th»l s*he had no money with her, thai she .needed a. loan of five cents to take-Uie subway -home to (ht relatives whom they were visiting, and fhat she would surely repay .tho loan, the next day. 'Bui what made you come in here for that loan?" asked.the man. "Oh. my daddy works in .1 bank at home and people come lo him for loans all the time."
