RIGHTS . AVhat are rights, and should people hnve them 1' The Bill of Rights, according (o William Feather, a business man who philosophically observes the Uvery-clay scene, includes "the right to drop used^ chewing gum anywhere, tho right to deface the walls of washrooms, the. right to disturb others by loud chatter in the theater, the right (" occupy a busy lolephone booth as long as one pleases, the right to muscle into the front end of. a queue, and" the'right to block the view of 300 7>eople during an exciting play in any sports event." So many really legitimate rights have been lost in Axis-governed countries that a lot of people are confused as to •what lire rights, and what not. Then; is, for instance, the right to be courteous. Once upon a time the word meant having the gentleness and good manners of people attached to the courts of kings.. Hut every American citi/.en, being,a king in his own right, has also tins'inalienable right to be gentle and kindly towards his fellow man. "\Vliy not .hold on to that one as well as to those somewhat less pleasant'.' .And speaking of courtesy and the rights of others, the following editorial comment, by the Chelsea, Mass.. 'Record, cites these instances of the lack of two essentials of goncl behavior: "It wnw a hot night. One a. m. We hoard them talking—two neighbor women .siuirtg on their front porchfs -Meriting to tret respite from the .Mtiiffinpss of Indoors. So thny calked—and talked. "Suddenly a now note disturbed the night. "'Ladies. If you don't luivi; any better sense than tn talk all night I'm here to tell you. I to go to work at six o'clock, even it you don't.' War worker, probably—yelling from his bedroom window. "If that fallow ihnughr. he would make any Impri'SSion' on thoci. two women by his interruption, lie was mistaken. They talked until 2:30. then apparently went to bed in full conquest of the field of brittle. "How ofen all of tin are thoughtless in our regard for the: other fellow's rights. "War workers are not. always the victims. Sometimes they arc loud. Ion. There was one croup of mill men who came noisily along tho street in the early morning. 'Well, I guess we've awakened th"e whole town!' ono fellow gleefully remarked as he turned Into his own home. They had. • "With working mon and women scheduled on different shifts, it behooves all' of us to consider • the other fellow, AC nlghl. for instance, there is no excuse for loud talk or other noise after 11 p. m." THE INDEPENDENT VOTE That, the indi-pi-iuiiMit. vcitu may h'M'l the balance in the coming presidential ejection is the op'mi'Mi of many close observers of the political situation and the way the " political straws'' appear to be blowing 1 . But just what candidates the independents will favor is something a lot <•!.' politicians in the Dcrnoei'at.ic and h'epnb- lican parties would like to know. . A Ing machine tool shop reports that its men are. doin^- about two-thirds of what they could without hurting themselves. What if fighters did that?" DO YOU REMEMBER?

"YOUR MIND AND BODY" WASHINGTON 13y HELEN TSSSARY (Central Press Columnist) Procopes To Live In Sweden Until European War Is Over Halifax Press. Conferences Informal, Most Interesting JJv J.OGAN CLIiVUENrNG, M. 13. Lift--Ciiving Biotin In Must Foods IT IS -curious that in the numerous popular discussions of the vitamins Ihoi-e is little oi;,.no mention of K. chemical whiclv'-is CundH-- •mentii'l ;; foiv life,, now. named- bio- Lin. It fe, .IH fai' us I Ciin-.soo, one of the vitamins. Yc-l in spile of the perfectly luscious advcriislnp sales appeal, there are no concentrated tablets of biotin offered lo the {,'reat American vitamin suck- .;rs. And the possibilities of the commercial continuity in its favor arc so stupendous! I Car, jusl hear the silky voices oozing out on the evening .air: "Friends, have you hnd enough biotin today? Biolin .spelled b-i-V t'-i-n. Biotin is absolutely necessary for human life. No living or- Kunisni can continue to live without biotin. It keeps the life processes f-'Oinff. It i.s the skin vitamin. For perfect touchable lovable skin you need daily biotin. Folks, are you feeling nervy, out of sorts, is your skir. scruffy — perhaps you need biotin, in the largo hard to swallow, easy to gaff oil, tablet form. Get some today at your nearest vitamin bar," Only trouble with ' this lovely dream is that, with some slight exceptions to be mentioned below, we c:m hMixlly ont anything- that hasn't 1,'ot bio'-ir. in it, and probably we form a good deal of it in our own bodies for self utilisation and supply. Disoovisry <>f Biotin Biotin was originally called a vitamin—vitamin B six. or the rat factor. It was, also put out. I believe, as Vitamin F— tho skin vitamin. The way its existence UYIS discovered was one of the by-products of animal experimentation. Amoiifr the numberless experiments performed in the new field of food resoni'ch in the last three decades, one set aimed to observe the effect of furnishing; rats al'. their protein requirement, .in the form of ef,'K white. What hap-' period was that the rate developed a dermatitis—a skin discnse that really was.,a skin disease. They were sorry "lookihjf rats. I have seen some of them and ' I mean.. they were '.he worst sample's of nils I ever laid my eyes on. Their hair came out in patches and there were scruffs and scales on the skin that showed through and Ihoir eyes were red and watery a:id their claws and tails looked .sore. - '.• Then it was found that if yeast, potato, arrowroot, or casein were added to the diet, this dermatitis did not occur. The rats .you sec were living on nothing- but cgK white which produced a substanec called avadin, -which apparently absorbs all the biotin' which is spontaneously produced in- the bocly. The dermatitis is undoubtedly clue to deficiency of a needed food element. It was first called Vitamin .13 six, or pyridoxinc, but now considered to be really the chemical which has been isolated in crystalline form and named biotin. Exceptions to Statement That exception to the statement that we all got enough biotin in our food occurs only -under .experimental conditions. The other exception is that perhaps biotin is in some way concerned trition of cancer cells. The evidence is still not clear, but in the WASHINGTON — Madame Procope, wife of the Finnish minister whom the United States state department asked to leave Washington about '-wo months a^'d because his country was an ally of Germany, is not in the least dismayed by her lonely and somewhat difficult situation here. At luncheon the* other day she looked happy and healthy. She said the r.uwost, Procope child who will be christened Car! Frederick when he and his brother, sister, and mother shall have joined.his father abroad, is ,-in "adorable, cuddly baby." He is now'six weeks old and. of course, does not know of the frreat talk here, there and everywhere that his coming: caused when his mother was deciding whether or not to accompany his father into Finland a fortnight or so before Carl Frederick made his first appearance in this internationally confused world. Madame Procope and the three babies — the oldest is not more than four—will take the first ship out for Sweden. The English wife of the former Finnish minister to the United States says that she and the children would be on_their way across tho ocean right now were it not far the fact that the ship on which she must sail is momentarily lied up in a Swedish port. Sweden is only about two hours by plane from Finland. Since it has steadfastly remained neutral Mjalmar Procope may easily visit his family there. Madame Procope will ot go to England where her family is living ir. comparative security but will remain in Sweden until the war is over. Undoubtedly the English arc beguiling Old Smoothies. Certainly Viscount Halifax, his Britannic majesty's ambassador to the United States knows how to be charmingly informal at a news conference. And when a great man is charmingly informal at a news conference .it's time for somebody to strike out in behalf of poor old "Pro Bono Pub'.ico." You remember that half-forgotten little guy- enormous volume of research that ! .is being done oil cancer chemistry, j the role of biotin may poHsibly be found" to have possibilities for cancer control This article is not supposed to have any practical application. It aims-to suggest some of the new ideas in research in food factors. Perhaps something " wonderfully useful will come out of them. "What DSC it is?" asked Bismark, when Helmholx described to him a new.idea in pure scientific theory. "What- use is'a new born baby?" replied the scientist. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS M.- L.: Is there any danger in discarding reading glasses? A.: No, if you see just as well without them. Many people arc normally slightly near-sighted or astigmatic when, young and need glasses. But when they get to middle age there is a hardening of the lens. The'eyes correct without glasses in such a case. J. G.: When you say the stomach always secretes pepsin docs that apply to a-case .of hypoacid- ity? A.: Tes, usually.. At any rate stomach digestion goes on pretty well in the presence of lowered 'acid in the stomach, He used to write letters about the terrible condition of the street lamp's way back in the days before iho war. At the British embassy when the ambassador called a news con; fei'ence to introduce Sir Alexander Cadogen, Britain's permanent undersecretary for foreign affairs; and to report on his own trip to i England, I arrived in the marble and black mirrored embassy drawing room a little behind schedule. There sal the British ambassador in white shirt sleeves and long cFgarot holder (with other suitable garments of course"). I-Ie wns as nonchalant as is Mr. Roosevelt, when the president reports on his own foreign goings on. Only Lord Halifax had out- Roosevclted Mr. Roosevelt. He had urged the gentlemen of the press and radio lo take olT their coats, and there ;hc coats hung, wilting, in the August humidity on the back of little gold drawing room chairs. "Here is a situation to be watched," I thought quickly. "When the British ambassador and the press take off their coats and literally roll up their sleeves together, something is going ^to happen." Nothing in particular seemed to happen except reassurance of peace and good will. You'd never have been able to tell from Lord Halifax's manner or that of Sir Alexander Cadogen (pronounced Kay-due-gin) that cither gentleman had ever heard of the Lend- Lease agitation. It was Paul Wooton who asked the G-l-dollar question. "Mr. Ambassador, is it tcue that Britain wishes an extension of the Lend-Leasc?" There was a breathless pause in the general atmosphere. But a pause of a fraction of a .fraction of a second: "I rather believe," said Lord Halifax. "I rather fancy that some people are thinking faster on the subject of Lcnd- Leasc than we ourselves are thinking." Several more 6-1-dollar questions on the same ticklish theme were asked. But the ambassador lost not a single dash of composure. He even tossed off a little joke here a.nd there in the best White House manner. It was evident, certainly to ' an American with a nationalistic turn of mind, that the British, having heard the rough reverberations of their recent trial shot, hinting that we must supply them further with Lcnd-Leasc, have decided to pipe down, as one would say in Scotland, until the mood ot the United States has become more receptive.
