As they sat around HI the tli'in and i'liekvrinj;' liiflit without even the enjoy- iiH'iit of tlieir radios (silent L'or the same j-fiison), they more than unco voiced their displeasure at beiiii;- deprived oL' eleetrie lights, radios and other eon- von it'll cos \vhieii add to the joy of living. Tlio deprivations and discomforts they were forced to endure undouhledly made them inore appreciative of these desir- rib It; I'eaturcs of a modern homo. However, so .far as silence of the radios was concerned, no small number probably breathed numerous siyhs of the relief they felt at being 1 temporarily free from noisy announcers, il crazy" programs and other features to which they so often have had to listen, but \vhieh to others in (he family nnd, perhaps, tin; family next, door, were the finest programs on the air. To a grent many persons one of the most, regrettable losses was the destruction of their shade and fruit trees, which had contributed much to the'u- comfort and happiness over a long period of years. These trees, unfortunately, cannot be replaced with thu same speed witii which electric power can be restored. As the late Joyce Kilmer said in his beautiful poem, "Trees 1 '—''only God can make a tree." And it takes a good many years to reach that stage when they can form a veritable shade canopy. The hurricane brought us one serious thought which is likely to remain with, us for a long time, naim-ly, that mankind of ' itself is absolutely helpless against Nature's elements which come from a source that is beyond all hurruni control—a fact which should make mortal man most humble as he i-e.'ilixos his dependence upon the Creator of th'e universe. That is the great and impressive lesson the hurricane has taught us. DO YOU REMEMBER?

The harassed German soldiers would tell them differently. This is a new kind of war, but very far from phony. POLAND AND THE PEACE The paper scrap drive will get. under way early Monday morning, with trucks- and men of the street department d"ing the work.

Given proper equipment, Pulisli forces have lived up to tlieir fine mili- tary'record of former centuries, nnd huy,c shown themselves more than a match for the Germans. This Polish participation in the "war 7iot merely yivos tliem a chance to ji'ct even with the Naxis. II. is of direct hone- fit to Poland. The coming peace conference is likely to pay the most heed -to those countries which have contributed most to the victorv. According to an item in the Chase News, the game of bocci was brought over to the New World by the Dutch settlers many, many years ago. The game in the U. S,, considered Italian, is played the world over. In England it's bowls— which Sir Francis Drake, the English admiral who defeated the Spanish armada, was playing it when news that, .the armada was approaching was announced,— and in the U. S. it is known as lawn bowling. In Scotland it's curling, only the Scots use brooms, ice, and discs instead Zeke Monahan made a wonderful catch at a ball game at Linden park Friday night, and in so doing cut off at least two runs' that might have been scored otherwise. The speed of the Nazi retreat almost suggests that the eastward-moving Yanks may soon join forces with the wostward- moviay Knssians. Unfortunately it won't be so easy as that. The Nazis still have- a sting loft, and will make it felt. It's mostly the 'strong- abused in public office. men who a?'c PSYCHOSOMATIC medicine, us we pointed out yesterday is. a field of practice which has lately received, a. great deal of attention from I'hi.' leaders uf the medical profession. The word psychosomatic is derived from the Greek roots—psy&h, meaning' the spii^- itual parts of n. ,1111111, the mind and the soul, and sotna, meaning the physical parts,( the body. Its fundamental concept is that jt is just as important to know what kind of a mnn the disease has as what kind of a disease the man has. Just as in noriruil living psyche and soma are biologically one, there is no division between thorn, so are they in the development of most chronic disease conditions. In treating them we cannot affords to concentrate on the physical state alone. "In any problem involving a sick person." said a wise old physician of. former tinics, "there arc two elements. One is the disease itself • tihd the other is what the patient thinks of the disease. The physician can always to a certain extent control the latter, even if ho can't make much change in the physical condition." Wide Application To show how wide are th'c applications of this branch of medicine I review some of the articles in a recent symposium. 1. Circulatory disorders. Remembering Fran/ Alexander's dictum that psychosomatic symptoms are not symbols of emotions, as so many neurotic symptoms arc, they do not express an en-.otfun, but are the physiological a.ccompani- ments of an emotion, it is easy to understand out of everyone's experience how the heart and blood vessels arc affected by the psyche. Blushing, pounding of the heart, fast pulse arc all physiological accompaniments of psychic states'. Translate these into hot flashes I and palpitation and you have the | functional disease equivalent of a psychosomatic state. Blood pressure is an ideal example of a condition where there are both physical and spiritual sides to the problem. Co 1m people are not likely to have high blood pressure: I do r.ot believe this is cause and effect, but that both arise from a basic personality pattern. The high blood pressure people arc those with the driving force and energy. To calm them down is io improve their state. 2. Digestive disorders. Just as in the circulatory f.eld there are high pressure and' low pressure groups, so in the realm of digestive disorders we find whole blocs o fsluggish and other blocs .of over-responsive persons. They arc both expressions again of funda-' mental personality patterns. The extreme examples in both groups WASHINTGON—Lt. Gen. Kurt Dittmar's intimation that Germany will accept compromise peace terms are expected to. be followed by other peace feelers as Ihc Allied soldiers start .breathing hotter '(!o\vn Hitler's neck. ' But, like til* German propagandist's left-handed request for a compromise, all Xaxi peace feelers will be rejected v.niil the Germans accept unconditional surrender. The position 01 the Allies was made Germany by Secretary of Suite Cordell Hull who said the Naxis must give in completely. He was bricked up by both.Demo- crats .i.'id .Republicans in Congress on this issue. Olllcials in Washington not given to rash predictions noWe.xpect Germany '.o collapse wj'Jiin the r.ext | 90 days if not sooner. They believe, j however, that the German fold-up I will come through decisive defeat on the battlefield—not through surrender of the country. business basis, free of dilettantism, poi-U novel experimentation and vote-cnt icing "spending sprees. This, business leaders declare, will mean that the federal budget will have to become absolutely bnsinoss-iikc \vithin the narrowest limits that condi;ions will permit. A budget of from 23 to 25 billions is realistically anticipated. This will preclude, they say, hog- wild extravagance on Vv'PA-ism and grants to war workers and veterans. REMARKABLE ALLIED MILITARY PKOGRESS.^has relieved American business leaders who hriye been viewing the unprecedented cost of modern war with consider?)bio concern. They say that the estimated cost of the war will enable a free enterprise economy to pick up. and carry on—provided that taxes and expenditures of the government arc on a sound economic and arc Constipated.-They cruet. "Oh! p.'irdon me," is ofter. on their lips. They drink beer. The ovnr-rosponsivo ones have heartburn and good appetites. In fact they have hunger pains. Their intestines arc forever rejecting waste. "Tact's go to a night club" is too often on their lips. They drink anything, but secretly prefer soda water. Nearly all forms of colitis belong In the psychosomatic group. Among the riticer things that the new specialty has dug up is that a tendency to colds, proneness, to accidents, stuttering and nllerfry tend to occur in personality pattern groups. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ALTHOUGH JAPAN HAS BEEN IMPROVING her fighting planes for the all-out aerial battle for the Philippines, China and the Japanese homeland there is no indication UH she has improved the quality of her fiyors. Xavy Secretary James 'told newsmen recently that our naval aviators face tough yoir.g because Japan has been able to add speed, maneuverability and fire power ;o carrier and land based planes. Earlier in the war, however. Japan had both numerical superiority and speedier planes than American pilots. Despite this advantage ih Japanese wore outwitted and outfought everywhere by well-trained, smart. American pilots. Tho biggest handicap of i.he Japanese hiurh command is that Nip- ponrse youths are less mechanically-minded than American boys. United Stales flyers arc also given better basic schooling and training when they are aro accepted for pilot candidates. Most American flyers who have fought, the Japs believe that Jap pilu'ts aro "brave but stupid."

There is a general feeling in party councils Hint blows .-it Truman will come in retaliation for Democratic tactics in smearing the Republicans as "pre-war isolationists," however. As soon as_ the cries Of "isolationism" and "vested interests' become loud enough the Republicans will let go. They may do so before then. In any case inside reports indicate the Truman ice will be broken by Dewey's, Gov. John W. Bricker of Ohio. At best Truman will bo depicted as the "creature" of a corrupt machine.
