If the (iermans are wise, however, they will not. really use it. For thu Allied Nations, with no intention of launching such a terror, have a similar weapon to use (hernsolves in ease ihu Hermans start it. and that might lie tho signal, indeed, for a '' war to end all wars."

In the news lately are Sir Hughe Knatchbull-Hugcssen and Sir Lancelot Oliphant. PERNICIOUS anemia is longer pernicious. I suppose hfid beucj- begin calling it' disor.ii'.n anemia :ifter Thomas Ad- dlson who first described it. J have before ni= the report on SO living cases of pernicious anemia. Nearly one-fourth of the entire number have beer, kept alive for ten years or more. When it is remembered that it was only IS years ago that the modern method of cure oC tho disease, by liver and Jivcr extract, was announced, and some o: these patients have been kept alive ever since, we see how remarkable and significant is this report. Be-fore the modern treatment the best hope we could hold out Cor Che average cuse was a life expectancy of about five years. Its signi/icunci; lies -in the, fact that this record proves the liver treatment has established itself as a tried and true remedy. So many of- tho cures and treatments we hear about are fly-by-night affairs. Somebody proposes them, and they gei, a groat bally-hoo. They are miracles, they are wonder-workers, they will cure anything. Than before you kr.ow it they disappear and nothing is heard of them again. Nocrl of Clinical Observation We have just gone through that first stupe with the sulfa drug's and we aro'istarting to go through it with- penicillin. I do not say thnt these arc not valuable drugs: they are. but it is certain that the extent of their usefulness will be seen to be loss in tho future, after they have been tested in tho cold white flame of clinical experience, than is thought or claimed for them now. But the use of liver or liver extract in anemia is a method that has gone through the flame. It is IS years old nou - . We know jt wasn't a flash in the pan. It is old enough to go to war. It is classified 1 A. There is another significance to such a record. Pernicious anemia- is one of tho diseases of middle or old age that wo can overcome. The ages of the patients in this scries reported from the Milwaukee County Hospital is arresting. There were no patients in the.age I group 20 to 29 years and only one | in the age group 30 to 39, and only four from 40 to '.19. There were IS from CO to 59. 33 from 60 to 69,' and 22 from 70 to 79. It is distinctly a disease of tho ages between 50 and 70, ' i Symptoms ot Pernicious Anc-min j My readers who arc always asking me how to turn their gray hair ! back to normal will be. interested to know that over half the patients were gray before '10 years of age, and, in one case, '.he hair was restored to its original brown by the treatment. So I can say that the only treatment of gray hair known to me Is to cat liver once a day. At least it is harmless, It i« well for people over fifty years of -age to know what the symptoms of Addisonian anemia are. Fatigue and weakness were present in 75 per cent of cases as the earliest symptom.. This connected with spells • 'of. about six weeks duration • when the skin- turns lemon color, and then the complexion spontaneously returns to normal, with persistent sore tongue (57 per cent of Cases), tingling of the hands and fingers WASHINGTON By HELEN* ESSARY (Central Press Columnist) Political Campaigns And Political Are Plenty Parties Must Expensive Foot That 'Bill WASHINGTON — Expense accounts are always full or "quips and cranks and wanton wiles." Expense accounts are tricky. The most exquisitely honest person when turned ;oose with an expense account goes slightly spotty in his otherwise pure soul and \vocdors "Seems odd that I can't manage to get in a few extra parties or :i present or two. Or even !• that traditional new overcoat un- j dor the heading of 'tips and inci- i dentals.' " j If, however, limpid honesty wash; cs out the spiritual spots in our lici-o's libido (at- wherever it is in which psychoanalytical spots lurk) then the poor wretch is likely to forgot what he spent foe dinner on Thursday and what he gave the porters on the train and end with the expense account owing him money. Such, dear voters, is not always the case with the holder of the campaign expense account. Particularly the account, the vast, extraordinarily vast expense account, allowed the candidates for the White .House. This account is called the presidential campaign fund, It is limited, oiiiciallv. to a paltry i $3.000,000. I Before Carl, A. Hatch, United senator from Now Mexico, began to inquire closely into contributions to campaign funds, the sky was the limit to offerings to any campaign fund for chief executive or—rioffca-teljor. After Senator Hatch got to thinking out loud In the Senate about where campaign contributions come from and where they go. he got the Hatch act organized and propped it up ir. the campaign circus as the stiffcst hurdle any campaigner had had to jump since misled citixcns-began running for public ol!Ice. I won't go into tho details of the Hatch act. It is pleasant ar.d appropriate xo know since its purpose is political purity, that its author came from a little mountain town frngrantly culled Clovis. Tt is also soothing to the reformer who has not yet seen the light, to realize that every expense incurred by a candidate—I am talking now about pei 1 cent), and disturbances of gait (-11 per cent) should send the man or woman of fifty or more to a doctor for a blood count. Particularly striking is that there is seldom any weight loss: the ghastly complexion makes you think instinctively here is a very sick man, and on, investigation it is found he has only a fifth as much blood as he should, yet the weight remains tho same. The best thing about the liver treatment of anemia is that it doesn't make any difference how you takn it. It works by mouth '.cooked in any way, or raw chopped up ar.d served in ice as a cocktail, or in tablets, so long as you take some every dav. Or you can have a hypoclermir of it once a month. QUESTIONS AXD ANSWERS H. H.:. What are the symptom's of stone in the bladder? -What causes, this trouble? Is there any cure or treatment except operation ? Answer: Symptoms: A large number give no symptoms. Others cause pain, stoppage of urination and blood and pus in the urine. The causes are various—in elderly men . prostrate enlargement, in women prolapse of the bladder as an old seque.1 of childbirth, .in children the cause is not known. For complete cure the stone can often be crushed ar.d washed out through a systoscopc, sometimes with urinary sedatives it gives no (71 per cent), loss of appetite (59 trouble for many years. the expenses of a candidate for the White House—must be sworn to and submitted by both the Democratic and Republican national committees every three months to the Senate committee on campaign expenditures. The proper name of this important committee is "privileges and election commit- teo" of which Senator Theodore Grenn is now chairman. Vet, try as the Senate committee and similar conscientious committees do, to obey the law and the letter of the law. there are means of "getting around the Hatch act." For example," under the act, $5,000 is the limit for any contribution to a presidential campaign fund. Y"ot there is a record of one gentleman who gave .55,000 in eight states to the campaign fund of the same presidential candidate. This made f-iO.00'0 in all. Under the federal corrupt practices act no corporation is permit- led to give to a presidential campaign fund. However—that same old "however"—the president- or any other officer of any corporation may send his persona! check to cither national committee, Once this is done, there are ways—(I'm only repeating what people tell me)—of maneuvering tho corpora- tnio into a position to reimburse the check writer. Seems to me that $3,000,000 is something ot a sum. even in the Roosevelthian era, to spend on the task o£ electing a citizen "without whose guiding hand this nation and all other nations must perish from the earth." "Three million dollars: — Why that's nothing at all!" a knowing public servant told me, "Think of the cost of radio time! Those rational hookups are simply terrific!" So are the special trains. And the hand-out to little towns who want to stage a meeting and can't afford to pay the expenses of a speaker or the expenses of getting ou;. p.irnders, or literature. I find thnt. the cost ot "literature" is appalling. Almost as much ns stamps, Why you can't conceive what stamps cost in a national campaign! I almost neglected that little advantage possessed by any president in olHcc when he wants to make a campaign trip. Ho can call the trip by a sweeter name—an inspection trip. Calvin Coolidge -'and Herbert Hoover visited practically every hamlet ar.d farm in the U. S. A. 'inspection" trips. "And just the other day President Roosevelt went on that naval .survey in the South Pacific where the soldier vote grows." Sic semper expense, accounts; They're all alike. There's an overcoat 'concealed in every one of them. LATEST TUNES Reviewed by JAMCK ltlie.4 New York, N. Y. (Special)-Twenty-four hours after Spik Jones and his musicians, the fir.s big-time band to entertain doughboys in France, had discm barked from a troopship, the band leader took to the air over a loca radio station here to appeal fo sleeping quarters for his \vearj men. Unable to notify friends in ad vance of his arrival on the trans port, because of security reasons the bandleader, who became well tno'.vn through his Bluebird re cording- of "JDer Fuehrers Face,' -axiod from hotel ;o hotel and elephonod dozens of others without success. The returned musi- ians spent the night in Turkish jath establishments, in hotel lobbies, and all-night ncwsrcel the- iters. Spike Jones himself found billet 0:1 a thick rug in the hotel room of an Army lieutenant who had recognized him at the hotel desk. Tho Spike Jones crow, under auspices of U. S. O. Camp Shows, went overseas early in July and for two months followed the troops in iheir drive through France, often pulling on performances for men who had been in battle ihfi previous day. Because they lived the life of front-line soldiers. Spike relates, seldom seeing a comfortable bed and eating "K" rations, the boys were looking forward to a splurge of hotel conveniences on their arrival in New York. Still clad in their khakis, the musicians rushed TO telephones after disembarking. When this proved to no avail, ihey piled iruo cabs and made a swing around the hotel circuit. They finally - gave up in the wee hours of the morning. The next day. siii! unable to :3nd rooms for his musicians. Spike came up with an ipsiraiion. He operators appealed io Martin Block, emcee of tho "Make Believe Ballroom" radio program on Station \VXEW. WTien Spike's record of "Der Fuehrer's Face" was introduced in 39-12. Block offered to present a. copy of the disc to each listener who bought a war bond, with the result that millions of dollars worth of bonds were sold. Block put Spike on the air and within minutes tho telephone calls began pouring in.. Ten minutes later the switchboard was lighted up like a Christmas tree. The studio found itself unable to handle nil the calls and extra were put on. 'I think we turned up enough idle suidio couches." Spike says, "to accommodate the First Army."' Estimating that only 15 percent of the 7 i >ot:cniial market for records is equipped with phonograph turntables. RCA Victor Division of the Radio Corporation of America predicted today, in a news letter to its. dealers and distributors, an enormous increase in record sales when production of phono~raph instruments for civilians is sumod. Discussing so-called "revolution- -iry" new methods of recording such as strips of film, or tape or a wire, RCA Victor rcpor.K| that ius :-csearch laboratories ; investigating the possibilities recording Techniques for Os|"j benefit of tho various fields zf which RCA operates, but conduce| that the present typo of record::, for home records is regarded the most practical, "The disc method provides zjl sic of exceptionally high quality ill low oasis, in such simple form lh;:| a child' can make full use of :•_' RCA Victor reports. "Moreover.," offers the advantage of pre-election. We may hear any ponies c: a symphony at will, or all of :'. The perfection of automatic record-changing mechanisms -of low cost within recent years has :sj4s possible to pre-select a sv=- phony or musical program ihs: can be played for more than s^ lour. In our opinion, nothing .IOT contemplated in the laboraton'H or in use commercially at press:: ^hows any signs of offering s-jci 'lexibility. tonal fidelity ar.d simplicity, at low cost, as do the co=-| •entional disc and phonograph." In a glance aheaci to post-wvl ivcntualities, RCA advised its :-s and dist.-iburors tnat many u-ovcmcnta in recorded music xpecied, but not necessarily o\-e:-l ight. The use of synthetics o: Jlasiics in record compounds •»•£ i-ovido better records, with less urface noise and that are :able to breakage, RCA Victo: redicted. Further progress is 3=- icipatcd by tho company in dcvti- pment of techniques for record- ntr orchestral music "for ;ho ci- of the home." as distinguished from performances of- signed for the Concert hall, ac'cinc that this would bring: about eve: more natural quality. As another factor, RCA Viewpoints to the widespread use- of i"- dustriaj music — the reproduction of recorded music over plant broaii- casting systems—to help increase war production, and declares ;ha: as wartime rosirictions or. tf.« manufacture of sound syszenss ar lifted, there will bo a comnicnsar- ately larger demand for the discs. Chief obstacles in the way °mooting current demands for records. RCA Victor also pointed on- are limited manufacturing facilities, manpower and packing material shortages.
