I It would seem that, there are enough issues on which opinions may honestly differ, without resorting to character- assassinations, innuendoes and whispcr- ijijir. reports which are never based on facts but. which arc always unfair to those against whom the attacks are made. Persons in public office and candidates for office arc subject to legitimate criticism, but false statements concerning. them and their private lives should never be made, even in a political campaign. In fact, untrue assertions arc- neither criticisms nor arguments but are despicable mouthings which should never be uttered. Those who indulge in them re- grot and feel ashamed later because they have made such utterances. Politics is a game that can be played fairly, squarely and cleanly. And that is. the only wiy the political campaigns should be conducted. DO YOU REMEMBER?

Buring the .'30 days of his vacation, Eddie Kolnncl, a former outfielder with Buffalo, will play with the Washington Americans. Then he will go back to his job with tilt- New York city department of sanitation. Tn the long run this is a better occupation than baseball, because it is loss dependent on youth, and after 2;3 years of service the holder gets a pension. Only the shortage of hnseball talent makes such an arrangement acceptable.

"I have never heard o: them out there, hut they mny. be. They are found in the Atlantic seaboard slates 1'rom New York- to Georgia, and in those regions there • is only one species. In southern and midwestcrn states, ns far north as Minnesota and Wisconsin, another species is .found. They may be much more widely distributed than that—I' am sticking to tho regions where .scientific study has identified- them. . , r . Their favorite local . habitat j3i in woodlands where there is a considerable growth of underbrush. Blackberry bushes are their especially favorite haunts. .They are not found in cultivated flclds or In well kept lawns and parks.

Some - places which seemed ideal for them have been combed and examined year after year without finding'any while close by In another spot with the same woodland characteristics they are f ou n d in plcntious abundance. 1 . Feeding Haliix Unknown One of the things we don't know about them is what they feed-on. The popular belie!: that they live on berries and fruit juices cannot be substantiated. The idea that they live as parasites on small unim'als also .falls down. Such small animals have been examined repeatedly without finding any crs.. They have been found attached to tho skin of snakes. The season of their activity is from about July second to the end of September. But they are not so fierce as the summer wears out. The popular belief that they climb up the body and get. on the chest and In the armpits also breaks down under cxperimcnta nvestigation. They get into' the ankles and knees, and if you walk waist high through bushes where they live you will'get them at the level of contact, but the fellow who got them under the armpit lay down so as to give them n good chance. They are very small—150. microns, about twenty times,, as big as a human red blood cell—invisible-to the naked eye though-they can be seen with a.hand lens. They pass through tho weave of any ordinary clothing. Attached To Skin They do not burrow into the skin, but sink their pincerlike jaws into. the skin and stay attached. They are especially likely to seize the skin at the edge of a hair'fol- licle as a good place to get a grip.?

It -argued tho problems of the world with even more.vim than Washington talk' usually docs. Perhaps this was because the pve-dinner juleps, were so thickly- frosted.

The.air w*s cool and the environment' encouraging. First, wo took up the warning Secretary of War Henry L.. Stinson gave after his return from an inspection, of the battle fronts "Tho end is not in sight," cautioned the war secretary. "Well,. maybe the end is not in sight-^day after tomorrow—" said the military expert, "but you can make me bciievc that something o great importance to us is not going ore inside Germany. Tniok of wha recently happened there in terms •of" our' own .country. If i6 nava officers tried to assassinate President : Roosevclt right here in Washington, we'd think something •was wrong, wouldn't we? We'd look into our own state of nationa health and victory and get a little scared, wouldn't we? We'd be like•)y to- thinlc the jig was up unless we made some sharp changes." The. diplomat 'across the tablo spoke: "I think you're probably right'about Germany. But as for Japan,' don't get' too optimistic about, the change in the cabinet 'and 'the ousting of Tojo. "I lived in Japan, you know. I know a change in government heads comes along as simply there as a change ' in administration in the United States. More simply- most of tho time.

For prevention for those going in the v woods, sprinkling sulphur powder with a talcum shaker over the skin and clothing is ..100 per cent efficient. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ' E. R.: Is it safe to reduce with a licensed physician at a clinic using thyroid extract and will it have any effect on the eyes? • Answr: The hyroid disease known ' as • .'cxjipthalmic goiter causes protrusion -of 'the eyeballs, but no one has ever been able to produce-, this effect with thyroid extract. The amount of thyroid extract used in reducing treatments is never enough, if properly given, to do any bodily harm. G. W. M.: Is there a permanent cure other 'than operation for a ruptured, intervertehral disk? Answer—Most of them get well or adjust with time. In-answer to a question regarding electric treatments for cataract;.you^.said they were not'to be.used because they wasted t'ime when real treatments would "be 'beneficial. ^To what treatments do you. refer; doctor lends to 'think there is no treatment. Answer: The proper treatment of a -cataract is to be under the care .of-an oceulist:who will watch the /..cataract until the exact, time t .ripens and is .proper for surgical .-removal. in- this country in November it would be -easy to translate this normal political occurrence into headlines something like this: "Roosevelt Overthrown; Entire U. S. Cabinet Quits in Rage. Conduct of Wai- 'Believed Responsible for First Drastic Shift-in. U. S. Govev- ernment in 16 years."" The geographer, who had been silent, now^askcd for a "freshener" iri : 'his -"glass 'and produced a good topic. "The war prisoner in this country will certainly absorb some of our American ideas of free and decent living. This makes me think that right after peace is made "we sho'uld go into the subject of exchange students in a big way, "Before the war we sent a handful of .exchange students to foreign schools and colleges. We tool a handful of foreign boys and girl into our own colleges and schools After the war. we should make th< exchange not in dozens or hun dreds, but in thousands. That's thi wise way to teach the young of al countries to understand . and like each other." "Ah, ha!" spoke up the business man in'our-talkative little group "You just said 'like each other. There you. have- the -danger in youi altruistic plan. Don't you realize ihat liking each other often means loving each, other and —marrying each other? "Are-you going to be satisfied ;o have American .girls and boys marrying into foreign nations? Some of these- nations we want to help, we'd • rather not interbred vith. "Do you think you can send a ot oC impressionable youth trot- ing wide-eyed around the universe vithout having some startling acial mixtures in Che next generation? 'I don't mind being practical, von if my business is diplomacy." The- man from the State Depart- lont WHS talking again. What; <lif- ercnce does the mixing up of racos make?
