Tlio youngsters, refreshed Jiud v>liysi- cnlly fit after tlie lony sinninor vacation, are'in fine shape to take up tliu .studies- whicli are so important to Uiuir i'lituru welfare. Tluit all of thorn may enjoy good health 'nnd spend the school year pleas- nntly and profitably is the sincere wish ot' their parents, relatives and friends. There may ho some hoys and yirls 'who. because of the -'bi^' money they are making- in war plants, have decided not to complete their high school course. They may not realize it now, but. they are making a serious mistake. The time •may come when they will wish many times they had remained at school and accjuired a high school education. The jobs they hold today probably will not last long alter the war ends. Meanwhile, they will he passing tip a splendid opportunity for'self-improvement. K out of work later, they may find themselves handicapped '.in' li'o't possessing a high school diploma.

Tt .fools that it will be for their .best interests so. , A CHALLENGE CONNECTICUT MUST MEET •••That 'Connecticut must take thought •lor the future in order to maintain its industrial leadership is pointed out in one of the most timely and interesting articles in the current issue o!.' Connecticut Tndutry. The writer, George 0. AValdo. editor- in-chief of the Post Publishing Co. of Bridgeport, .says: ".-At the end of the present war there will be a struggle for industry such as.this nation has never, bo fore known. From one end of the land to the othor, new factories have been greeted with government loans and lavishly equipped with the best of modern imicbinery. Communities which never had local industries are now bcnefitt'mg by war work and planning to retain these industries in some form after the war is over. JOvery inducement, will be offered by such communities to entice Connecticut's industries away and every legitimate fft'ort (a.nd some perhaps not so legitimate) will be made: to lure from the state the skilled .workers who have been trained in Connecticut production methods. In ;brief .the problem is this: .If \vo can retain, 'our skilled manpower we can .•maintain 1 'oui >: industrial leadership. If we cannot maintain our skilled manpower we shall lose our leadership. . . ,'It behooves us then, as those who love onr state, to take slock of ourselves, find sou what we-are going to do to keep the native skills we possess and to add to them as time goes on." Afr. Waldo, who' is chairman of the Connecticut' Park nnd Forest Commission, writes enthusinst'.cally of some of tlio beauties of Connecticut as only one who loves and admires his state could write. And all that he says is absolutely true. .His inspiring article is one that should be read by everyone who has Connecticut's welfare at heart. Mr. Waldo shows that, our state'must meet .a challenge that will call for serious thought, careful planning and tireless effort, coupled with a strong determination that- -Connecticut shall never relinquish.'its industrial;leadership. People "are''saying the world has to he organized. And U may ho a race bo- twecn the politician's and the captains of industry. r DO YOU REMEMBER?

Industrial strikes in June wore rated as not very many, but they added up to nearlv a million lost days. LaBellc France will soon be there with bolls on. By LOGAN CLTiNbENING, M. D. The "Cultural Lag" SOCIOLOGISTS have , a name for nn attitude of mind, .which they cull "oultui-al: lag." For instance, a. lui-fe'e si-oup of influential citizens subscribe, whether they know it or not, to Adam Sniilh's laissez-faire ideas about political economy. They believe, for instance, that periods of unemployment arc the fault of the unemployed: it's u man's own fault, laziness or lack of initia- vc if he is unemployed. The modern economist recognizes that conditions in the world today have forced u.s to po on past that theory ,nd place the responsibility of un- mployment and ius re'.iet on the crovernment:. I do not know whether this is true or not. I am not a sociologist. I use it only because the term "cultural lag" is so appropriatr. to the thinking of many persons about the prevention of contagious diseases by individual vaccination of the. entire population Triumph of Medicine This, which has been accomplished with ' the diseases smallpox, diphtheria and typhoid fever, is the j,-i-eaLest triumph of modern medicine. Indeed of modern science. It is a sheer reversal of the malignancy of nature—a leap of man's intellect, imagination and ingenuity. The only accomplishments of man that arc comparable to it arc his discovery that useful plants could be deliberately grown from the proper seeds, that animals can be donics- ticatod, that fire can be controlled for useful purposes and the principle of the wheel and these arc applications ot the bounty of Nature while preventive medicine is, as I say, a reversal of the malignancy of Nature. It is as meteorologists were able to prevent tornadoes, floods, and earthquakes. And. let us add, the final advantage in tli's field is that thrse particular .methods have been tried so long that we know that they will do exactly what is claimed for them, and they work not haphazardly but the same under all circumstances. Yet in the face of all this there is always a group afflicted with the "cultural lag"—the anti-vac- cinationists and their 'ilk—some crank who is/not going to have his child nllcrl with dead typhoid germs or diphtheria toxbid poison, who continue' to try to oppose these successes of the human genius, These same people fall heavily for such bunk as testosterone to make old men young. But they oppose methods of prevention of diseases that in other days afflicted and killed millions of people all over the world regardless of climate, A! year round regardless of season. Antl-Viicclnatlonists .Group To tell a man of the year 1800 that before a century and a half had passed smallpox, diphtheria and typhoid fever would have disappeared from the surface of the civilized earth and would no longer afflict mankind would have been to invite flat incredulity. The mind of that man of 1800 represents today's group of anti-vac- cinationists with the "cultural lag." Typhoid fever is one o< the best examples. Inoculation of each in- ! WASHINGTON—Most Wash in j;- i ton observers, despite denials to | the contrary, look for something' very much 'along the lines of military domination of'the world by the "bi? four" powers to grow out of the Dumbarton Oaks conference in historic old Georgetown. : The form of the post-war orK.ini- ' xation, and not in accordance with i some iciealir/io--programs which i have been sussrost«d, wherein the i smalfer nations . would have 'an ! equal voice in determining "asr- I jfi-cssors," ! The outcome probably will be i disguised and sugar-coated, but authority to invoke military power to maintain peace will rest primarily in the bands of the United States, Great Britain. Russia and China. And a coalition ot smaller powers will not be able to block the decisions'of the "hip four." In the case of Russia, she is opposed to any plan whereby 20 small republics in Latin America will be able to veto the thoughts of the larjre owners at a conference table. Russia, fifrhtinf,' frantically for peace in the old lc:ifrue, saw all her work RO for naupht due to the inertia and '.nek of forcful direction on the part of the IIURC mass of The smaller '-peace-loving" nations will have a place at the council table, and will hoyc ample machinery for submission of grievances of an international character, but suppression, of atrfrression by force will be the domain of the "bi{; four" powers THE WISDOM of American strategy in the Pacific is becoming more evident daily with hundreds I of thousands of Japs eliminated as I llghtinK units a at little or no'cost in American lives So far. at least 2!50,000 Nipponese warriors have been cut off from Ihcir supplies and left to starve on unproductive islands throughout the Pacific Eventually, it is expected that a handful of Marines will be put -i'ashore'at such'bases at Wotje and ! Millc in the Marshalls, and prob- •! ably Truk,- to mop up the rem- I nants of once-powerful garrisons. By taking key islands and then cutting off nearby Jap-held points from their . source of supply. American forces-have been able to win tremendouus victories without risking the lives of many U. S. fighting • men •The isolated Jap garrisons will never have, tho opportunity to die gloriously in battle for the Emperor. WORLD WAR II'is following almost identically the 19IS timetable in France. But the Allied military high command is making every effort to avoid one pitfall which cost the British, Americans. Canadians and France dearly 20 years ago. This is the massive, attrition!!] battles east of Paris which took such a heavy toll of men and material. Among these, as World War I veterans recall, were the Meusc- Argonnc, the Somme, the Marnc, Verdun and Belleau Wood. General has overwhelming air supremacy, fast mobile units and superior artillery to keep the Germans on the run. The Allies hope to keep the offensive in Franco os-fluid as possible to avoid World War 1's stand-up-and-light battles. Military experts compare the strategy in France with the same fluidity of General Eisenhower's movement in-the U. S. Civil War when sharp, decisive encounters took the place of prolonged battles.

In 1930 in 78 American cities there were 30,000 cases of typhoid fever and -1,1500 deaths. In IfMO in the same cities with a greatly increased population there-were about 700 cases of typhoid fever and about 120 deaths This has been brought about largely by public sanitation, but individual inoculation is still necessary on account, of the menace of carriers. It is fair to say that the war against Japan could probably not have been prosecuted, were it not for an ti-typhoid vaccination. During the Spanish War with an an army of 4,000.000, all inoculated against typhoid, we had 1,200 cases and most of these could be traced to careless or incomplete inoculations. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS F. E. W.:—I have had my chest Xrayed for tuberculosis but always negative. . Also the sputum for. tubercle baciili. But the tuberculin skin test is always positive. Why is this? Answer: The skin tuberculin test is a general test to show whether a person has or ever had any tuberculosis. It is very sensitive and persists after healing has occurred—in fact for life. Whenever a positive skin test is found it is wise to follow up with chest X-ray, etc., but if theyare negative it can be concluded that there is no active tuberculosis THE ARMY-NAVY INVESTIGATION into the Pearl Harbor disaster, which began in Washington about a month ago. is expected to be completed in about a week. Information to this effect has been given Senator Homer Ferguson (R.) Mich., who is withholding introduction of a resolution for a congressional investigation pending completion of the current probe. •• Ferguson says he doesn't know whether the Army and Navy will hold sessions outside Washington when they have completed their work here, but contends that this is unnecessary. YOU MAY LOOK FOR WPB to start downhill soon in tho matter of importance and rank among Washington war agencies. WPB probably will sink from a first-line organization to a'subordi- natc place under a demobilization setup co-ordinating all the necessary activities incident to concerting to .peace.

And plan again- the way your used to do ..He will be strange but only for a while. And when the scars of battle fade away. He will regain the crooked, boyish smile. He 1 will be young and arrogant, and gay...Wait for him then — and keep your courage high. Yours' is a dream too beautiful to die.— Don Wahn.
