It is also jiTati Tying to read that the nuuiicipality no lunger owes money nn outstanding uctes. Dunng the three years AViirdeu IAM> J. Mnmhy has been in office, his administration lias paid a total of $811,000 ou notes. The auditors state that no bomiigli officials should at any time expend amounts which are in excess of the biKig- ot as adopted by the freemen, and that if necessary to exceed amounts approved or to make expenditures not contemplated in the original budget, proper mi- tliori'/.ation should be obtained. These suggestions, we believe, are worthy of earnest consideration by our citix.ens and the borough fathers. The auditors again recommend revision of tho borough charter and the creation of a board of finance, or that greater power 110 given to the borough board with respect to budgetary practices. In addition to oilier recommendations, the auditors feel that a study should bo made (if the assessors' office with a view of providing full time operation of the office in order that records may bo complete and up to date at all times. This is a matter which is also worthy of consideration. As to. the bonding of officials and em- ployes not already covered, the auditors state that, the .chief of police and several of the borough bailiffs are not covered although that is required by a special act of April 10, ID 17.. .'lust why this coverage is not required is not stated. Tn calling attention to the fact that the warden is not bonded, the auditors say that "while it is not, (•(•'•(iiii'iid, we believe it is very desirable that this official be covered." The report reflects credit on the administration of "Warden Krophy and his Mssistants, It will, we believe, please tlie citi/ens of this community. HITLER'S PURGE "\Vhen rogues fall out, honest men corne by their own," This old saying is confirmed by the quarrel between N' jind Junkers in Germany, for its violence unparalleled in history. Stalin purged the Kussiaii army a few rears ago. 'Marshal Tukhashevsky, chief of the general staff, Marsha! Bluedier, whoso varied service included war for J China, and many brothers of almost equal prominence were executed. And without any approval of the purge method of government, it is fair to state l.lm.l Stalin afterward made a very good CH'SO for the necessity of executing a few conspirators against a rising government which needed strength and cooperation if it was. to do anything for a downtrodden people, who were making the first hopeful effort to stand erect. This was fit ti time, too, when his country did not have nn enemy hammering at its gates. •Hitler is taking a feartul chance. .Hi* purge may have gained him a few more months of life, but it looks as if he had ruined Germany. An Astoria, X. Y., woodcarver says his neighbors, have threatened to murder him because of his snoring.^ He has appealed to police for protection. AVe dread t'o thintc of what may happen to him if he doesn't get it. 'Loud snoring is upt to put people it keeps awake in a dangerous and implacable mood. \ DO YOU REMEMBER?

Looking at Life By ERICH BRANDEIS "YOUR MIND AND BODY" WASHINGTON My HEI-EX KSSARV (Central Press Columnist) Finnish Minister's Wife Still Popular, Well-Liked Britain-Born Mme. Procope Plays Difficult Role Well By LOGAN CLENUJS-MNG, M. " A Menacing Disease EVERY WAR which' the United States has ever f. o u fr"h t hlli > brought back to temperate, regions an increased incidence of malaria. We take Massachusetts ui-ound Boston for an example because we have very complete reports on that region. This area is pre-eminently not a 'malarial country. The weather is- not conducive to the brooding of the mosquitoes which' carry malaria, and there arc no extensive swamp lands to furnish the ideal habitat for the mosquito. Under normal conditions within historical times the incidence of malaria in Massachusetts is almost nil. Tn ISM .however, soldiers returning from the Civil War who had been fighting and living in southern climates raised the malaria incidence in Massachusetts to a high peak and furnished a reservoir so that even the civil population had some experience with the disease, After the Spanish American War in the same region the same results were noted, Only in a more marked degree. From 1915 to 131!) there was a slight rise in the reported incident, duo 'entirely to sailors in tho Marine Hospital. Now returning soldiers from the Pacific. Italy and Africa raise the incidence anew. Malaria Arnus In the whole area of the United States we have in our own time malaria always in Louisiana, Mississippi and parts of the Gulf States, though it is kept pretty well in control. In the memory of_ mar. living it used to be prevalent' farther north—in Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri, Ohio and Kentucky. In fact it was the great infectious disease which plagued tho early settlers in the westward march. Eut the draining of the swamps and idle water and mosquito control has largely wiped it out. The men of the armed forces from the Pacille area are bring-ir.g back some of the worst complications of the most malignant forms of malaria, The ordinary, usual form of malaria—chills and fever every day (the acstivo-autumnal form), or every other day (the tertian form), or every fourth day (the quatidnn form) can be supposed to he recognised by any medical man. But the queer forms may prove a great puzzle in a non-"• malarial country whan tho physician is not on the alert to suspect every sick person oC having some form of malaria. Typos of DlKCiixc! There is, for instance, the comatose form when the patient begins with an active delirium and ; sub-, sides into .1 deep state of unconsciousness, a coma. And the algid form which presents' a severe', acute digestive disturbance with nausea, vom.iting and dia.rrhoc'a, 9 There may be no actual chill in- either of these forms. Or again the haemorrhagic form with passing of bloody urine (blackwatcr fever), or bloody vomiting, etc. Then the cachectic. or anemic form with onset with great prostration and hacmmorhage into the retina of the eye a'nd great depletion of the blood. It is unlikely that malaria, par-- ticularly the malignant- tropical forms, will gain any foothold in this country.-Quinine is.'as it has- always been, a sovereign remedy. And our supply, of quinine, threat- WASHINGTON 1 —Finnish Minister Hjalmar Procope's refusal to accept this government's offer to withhold the recent "Here 's Your Passport—Go at Once" offer until the third Procope baby is born was dedicated, I am sure, by Mme. Procope .herself. Mme. Procope Is English, as you know. \\Ticn Finland joined Germany;.'; side in the war, she found herself in a dramatic and highly difficult position. Her ,own country was an enemy of her husband's country. "A most awkward situation," Margaret Procope prob.-.bly remarked in her casual British way. "Bill we'll make the best of the nasty mess." She did make the best of the nasty mess. She behaved with dignity and much, sweetness. Washington increased its respect for Tjalmar Procope because of his wife's loyalty. When it was evident that a new Pi-.ocopc baby was soon to arrive in this troubled world, Mme. Procope appeared utterly undisturbed by the prospect. She grew handsomer and more serene than ever. Her baby is expected within a. fortnight or so. But until the last week she was going about to par- 'ties as usual. Entertaining at one of the many Legation dinners or luncheons. Mme. Procopc has not hud an easy row to hoc at any time since she came to Washington from England, the sudden and unexpected bride of the then most-fotecl of the capital's corps of diplomats. Hjalmar Procope- had been and always will 'be a complete Beau Brummcll, a cosmopolite more definitely than a Finn. Many women in Washington— widows, misunderstood wives and debutants—imagined themselves in love with this romantic fellow. He had a sparkling personality and a special way of saying anything and every thing, If for example he were to remark with bright-eyed and provocative simplicity. "This is indeed a 'luffly' day," you'd believe if you weren't mighty knowing that he W.-LS trying to tell you that it w.'ts you who had made the day so "luf.- iy-" A. light manner that few suspected was always impersonal was Hjalmar Procope's great, charm and greatest asset. While he was looking intently at you and talking of the "luffly" day, he wasn't thiking of you at all. He was turning over in his alert, mind ihc very best, way of beguiling you into helping his troubled little" country, Ar.d if he spoke of that ••luffly" day in a''sort of "we understand each other" tone, that was the part of his business. Moro- ly routine. As automatic as the polite covering words used by any good diplomat to conceal thought and intention. As I said at the beginning, each one of dozons of women hnd sort of hoped at lirst that the fascinat- 'ing Procopc would offer his hand and his heart to her and her alone. Naturally when he produced a surprise wife there was much rcsent- ; mont against the faithless fellow. More against the successful wife. Actually Procope hadn't been faithless at all. He had merely been misunderstood. . The surprise wife, the former Margaret Ross, was stared at and discussed thoroughly. Soon, however, it was. evident that she adored her husband and that he adored her. At the outbreak of the war she was one -of the richest women in England. Coal and great land holdings. That sort of thing, Slowly the strange wife became one of the most popular women in Washington. Her devotion to her husband .and her pluck, won ihc affection and the admiration of this town. ••I cannot' find my proper niche on life," writes u. girl' from Hollywood.

Everybody ought to do the boot he can in whatever t;isk he :» given to do. But don't go around yearning for something else, something more important. Don't try to be a. "somebody." Jirst be yourself. People who are so darned' anxious to get ahead think too much of themselves and. not enough of the world in which they live. I have talked to many successful people, ojid I have come to th:: conclusion that to them succe«:s haa. been less of Jin effort than failure to others. It isn't su<-,h a bad idea to follow the philosophy of Popeyc, the SuiJorman: "J yam what I yam" Find out what you are, then develop your abilities.

Public health officers are alert to the draining' of s%yamps and killing of mosquitoes in potentially malarial distri.cts, as I am reminded by an announcement from the extermination committee of Nassau County, New York. Malaria is, let us remember, tile greatest disease scourge of the world. It is, the real Fourth Horsc- • man of the Apocalypse. ' QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS' .P.

INTERNATIONAL MARRIAGES can be tragic in time of war if. "the parties concerned" arc not made of stout stulT. Frances Bunker Rosso, the. American wife of the former Italian ambassador to the United States. Augusto Rosso, .has proved that she. like Mme Procope, has the qualities heroic-wives arc made of, Frances has followed her husband about from one difficult spot to another. She was traveling across most of the harassed countries of central Europe at just about the moment those countries were declaring war against hcr own country or her husband's country. • But she didn't run back to the United States for safety. She is in Rome now. Delighted of course, that -Italy is at peace with the United States if she is living meagcrly and not without anxiety. Courtney Letts Espi!, one of the most popular diplomatic wives, trotted off to Argentina with her husband. Felipe, recalled Argentine ambassador to Washington. Her letters to friends here show her untroubled, tactful ruid clever as she was in the good Washington days.
