Others will traverse the woodbinds in quest of gain u as the hunting season will s<>on begin. To these woodland visitors a word of warning to take precautions against the careless starting of forest fires is in order. Kvery year in the autumn season the danger of such fires increases, due t.o the fact that, forests and fields become so tinder dry that a lighted mati-h or cigarette dropped in the grass or leaves may easily start a lila'/e which may cause heavy and irreparable damage. If fires are kindled for the enjoyment of an outdoor lunch they should he lighted in places where there will In- no danger that they will spread and get out of control, Care should I'e taken to see to it that all siu-h fires are completely extinguished before leaving the premises, I'nder no circumstances' should matches he carelessly used on the outings, Xo fire preventive measure slmiild lie overlooked.

GADGET CIVILIZATION From iincniivciitiniial Henry Ford, wlio lias always gone his own way regardless of competitors 1 opinion, recently came another declaration of what he considers an automotive bill of rights. He proposes to raise wages again as soon as the government will lei him. Tli- thinks the $;>-a- day minjmnm IK.- adopted, in 1014, and the $T-a-day to which lie rose in 3020, are not enough, Uul he cannot go ahead now on his own volition, because of government x control through the War Labor .Board. The reasons lie gives for 'higher pay ;m; unusually interest ing, representing a [rank mixture of generosity and pride. "As. long as J live," he says, ''I want to pay the highest wages in the automobile business. 1 ' .But it depends, lie adds, on the workers in the plants given "a full dav's work for a full day's pay," And right there is an entering point 'for controversy. People might argue endlessly about, just what, constitutes "a full day's work" and "a full day's pay." iUr. Ford makes it. look simple. 1^ economic standard is. ••enough money for everybody to own a home, a piece oi land and a car." That is unquestionably desirable, .but others may say it is only the beginning of n 1'ti 11 Mn'd adequate life. AYhat about education, culture, development of the intellect, expansion of knowledge and all that irnes to the making of the 'highest; typo of manhood and womanhood? Gadgets are only a crude beginning. DO YOU REMEMBER?

Cycle Ol,'' Nature WHEN AND if the glorious day comes when we can get n brand new car it will be difficult to make a choice, or so I judge from some of the preliminary prophetic drawings and paintings of models which an enthusiastic car deulcr showed me the other day. "But 'still," I said, "you haven't got as good a machine as I have. So he got huffy and wanted to know what I meant. So I told him about a machine that you poured fuel into three times a day and this kept it running, and oiled It, and even gradually transformed and repaired it when necessary it into next year's model. Human Machine He caught on that I was talKing about the machine known as the human machine. He ;.;aid it would be nice to have that kind of- fuel.' And I said— "Oh! that's easy." "What is it?" he'asked. And 1 answered—"Grass — ;\\\ flesh is grass.". The cycle of Nature which produces living organisms and the fincrgy of living organisms, starts with the sunshine and the air. Plants use these and are even more wonderful machines than animals in that they can use such simple substances and turn them into structure and life. The best physiological chemists have been baffled in trying to turn carbon dioxide, water and sunlight into carbohydrate. They can make soda water and that's about all. They have, it is true, by great effort succeeded in synthesizing more simple sugars, but at a cost of time, labor and money us to make them prohibitive. While the meanest flower that grows does this trick of synthesis with an ease and abundance that puts the machinery of the wise to shame. In the next step in the cycle of Nature this synthetic product of plants is taken into the animal body and turned ir.to calories— into energy. The animal body. of course, needs something else for its nutrition—protein to build into flesh nnd this too the plant supplies, but not quite so surely or abundantly as it does carbohydrates. Besides carbon and oxygen the plant needs nitrogen for proteins. If one were inclined to carp at Nature one could point out that one of its major mistakes, if not its major mistake, was in not giving plants the atmosphere, as they do carbon the power to take nitrogen out of dioxide. Jn order to build their proteins Looking at Life By KBICH A voung fellow who is aboul. ,-^dy to cirn . Hvln B but Hlill too young to join the armed ucrvicc, u°!<ed my advice a couple of day« ago. -I want to prepare myself for a business oraprofCHHion," he said, "but it's so hard to make up your mind." "Well, have you any particular inclination?" I asked him. "Yes I have," he na.id, " "I-like selling.' But my Cal.hcr wants me LO go into somcthios more d.tfni- ficd. He thinks people kind or look down on sidesmen." "What rot!" I replied, "I think salesmanship is the most important business in the world. And then I went on to prove my statement.. Salesmanship is vital in every j phase of life. 1 The baby, by its yelling, sells its mother on its first drink of milk. , No man has yet gotten a wife unless his courtship and proposal were good salesmanship. The swcclest poem languishes unread unless it is sold to a publisher. The finest music, the greatest drama must first be sold to a producer. . The dog, man's dearest friend, tells his desires to his master by pleading eye or begging bark. Nature herself is a salesman— Ihe beauties of the flowers, the verdant green of the trees, the majesty of the mountains and the -randeur of the sea—all these have they must get the nitrogen from the soil. Some of the plants arc very good at this — the legumes, and this is because of all living; creatures only certain kinds of bacteria can remove nitrogen j from the air and these bacteria in- , habit nodules on thi roots x of the legume family. Leguminous plants so' blessed—particularly soy beans —provide the most promising substitute for animal foods—meat, eggs and milk—now known. The protein molecult :s a huge loose structure made up of a number of amino acids. Our edible plants furnish us with most of the essential amino acids and the animal body synthesize these into proteins "of building- blocks of the animal body. The building blocks are fairly easy to get from plants, but growth proteins arc not so certain on a. purely vegetable diet, and for that reason we obtain ihem in practice mostly from animal foods. The lactating glands of animals which produce food for the young—milk—and the rcproduc- • iivc glands which produce the germ of tho young—eggs, natural- i iy contain these growth_ clcrnqnw ,j and we use them. j Besides the energy and the pro- j loin plants extract, from the soil tho calcium, phosphorus, sulphur, iron and vitamins which we need. told more real estate than Hfileimnan ever could. • Every «ucccm»ful man i» a Dalesman. • . .
