PEACE ENFORCEMENT It is generally acknfnvlodyod now that hereafter there must be definite arrangements for policing' tlie world, to avoid 'a general wreck. The 'heads of the British and American governments .have boon busy lately with that problem. It is an enterprise in which anybody can join, nnd the ranks of new world-builders may grow Vapidly from now on. Hero arc sumo suggestions from United States Senator Harold IT. Burton, delivered in a recent speech addressed to the Senate. Iff- .wants the United Nations to retain their organization as ;i "championship team" on a reduced scale, when tho was is over. The Senate, he says, should deliberate further en a treaty to establish such Ho argues that, "if we can keep these nations together, it will not be difficult t.o keep their armed forces, facilities and liases coordinated in time of peace as well as in time of war." The surrender of the Germans and Japanese should help. The present team would he kept intact and in,good condition. Tints there would be no new scheme, hut merely the permanent establishment of existing faeili- fies. Many people, with such power exist- in';', might fear for the freedom of their own coiml i-ies. The majority would be expected to fall back on the principle (hat there can be no general freedom without some law and coercion. BIGGEST NAVY .Americans like; to think of the United .States as the biggest and best in everything. Li one field very important nowadays thai, is undeniably true. Secretary of the Xavy Forrest a I announces that our navy is bigger tlum all the fleets in the world together were five years ago. It is twice (is big as its nearest competitor, the British navy. Since the war began, it has increased "00 per cent, and the program is little more than hull' finished. How discouraging'this must'he to our enemies!

John IToaly, ST., of Oo'nnan street; i.s reported to be slightly improved today after a serious operation at St. Mary's hospital several weeks ago Al Brewer will 1)0 guest columnist next week.

Causes And Cure OL' Gallstones GALLSTONES is something that might happen to anybody. In face according to statistics it alronUy ia.s happened to 10 per cent, of ihe population. And it' you are selective and refer only to people over forty years of age the proportion, is much higher. Some statistics show that in women over sity, one out of four (25 per cent) have Tho reasons for this frequency nre not far to seek. The fin.ll- blndder is one of the bayous, 01 backwaters, of the body. It is a little sac in which bile rests quiet ly most o!' the 2-1 hours, until tho bile is needed in fat digestion and then the gallbladder empties, o: allows the bile to escape into the intestine. The bile contains in solution substances which can crystallize and form stones. This docs not happen unless there is a central foreign body around which to crystalizo. Tho nucleus ol" the gallstone is usually a conglomeration of bacteria o;- mucous o'J disqunmuted cells, the products of inflammation. Since all tho blood 'mm the intestines goes to the iver llrst, in the course of -10 years a good deal of this blood must contain bacteria. This lodges n the gallbladder and forms the nucleus for. first, inflammation ind, second, gallstone formation. Q. E. D.—many people over 40 lave gallstones. Treatment of Gallstones Tho treatment, of gallstones vould seem to be a fairly obvious matter. We can detect them with i very high drprcc of accuracy ind frequency. The dye test with he X-ray is very dependable. So ve are able to tell they arc there, lurgery has reached such a. state f perfection that gallstones can. e removed completely and> finally vith H. minimum of risk. They cannot be dissolved by any medicines taken -by mouth, or in the veins. Surgery is the only way. Eut human nature being what it is and Nature in general being what it is, everybody who has them does not 'necessarily 'run to have them hacked out. on the slightest provocation. For one reason many of them arc silent and give no trouble. -For another, even if a set should flare up occasionally and go on the rampage, medical treatment can control them pretty well and keep a fellow reasonably comfortable for years. For the final reason only a very small proportion of the population really yearns for surgical operations, To say the least they do not conduce to saving money or freedom from discomfort. And I may say I am quite sympathetic to that attitude, I am not at all hardboilcd towards people who are trying to avoid surgery. One may reasonably ask, however, whether the patient is running 1 any grave risk if ho elects to keep his gallstones a while and give up his surgeon. This is especially pertinent now that hospital facilities arc so taxed and patients should consider whether their complaints are sufficiently serious to warrant their occupying a hospital room. Looking at Life By ERICH BU.OfDEIS In ii n address before iho Amer- icnn Chcmlciil Society. Dr. Thomas Midgely, Jr.. its president, complained t.lia-t thei-o ai'o "LOO many o!tl men al the helm." "Their retention," he says, "is denying advainccmont to younger men at the very age when these younger men may be expected to be entering those years when their maximum efficiency will be at- tnincd. "Every executive who has lived beyond the age of -)0 is guilty, to some slight extent, of lot gotiing OUL of the \vny of -the yonr.ger mc-n so that their normal advancement could take place." Then he went on to prove his e.ise by telling his hearers that William Porkin gave us the first aniline dye ;u IS, that Marconi patented his first wireless invention at 2-J. that Howe invented the sewing inachinc cotton gin at l 26, Whitney the 29 am! he himself in quite good health. Two-fifths of his patients had developed complications moj-o or '.ess serious: the duration of harboring gai:- sioncs in this group was about seven years. Of course tho occurrence of complications — jaundice, intractable indigestion, prostrating attacks ot colic—should call for operation, in spite of all objections. Tin's report concludes, however: "Operation mny s.ifoly be deferred in patients with gallstones so long as there i.irc no complications and provided the postponement does not impair the patients resistance." QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS T. H..- What effect does coffee have on high blood pressure? I am 70 years old. Answer: Coffee has no effect on blood pressure. It is good for people TO years old. A Boston surgeon, Dr. Bearse, has reviewed his experiences with his -gallstone patients with these a consecutive scries -of. about 250 questions in mind. He found that patients had had gallstones for over five .years. About three-fifths hail no-complications and seemed Q. Have you any suggestions for overcoming blushing, in the youth or adult? A. Blushing can be reduced if the person will get it out of his or her head that it mutters, rather consider it a distinguished item n personality, making him dilTor- ont from others. Take the attitude it is your own face and your own Business. T. O'R.:—When the foot begin to burn and turn reddish-blue a few minutes after resting on the floor is this a circulatory disturbance, and what can be done about it? Answer: Yes, it is a circulatory disturbance, but may be induced by diabetes. Have a urinalysis for sugar. Treatment is by heat and, leg exercises (letting the legs hang over tho bod, and then rais-" ing them straight up, while lying on the back), but it is serious enough to warrant medical consultation. Mrs. J H.: Please explain the injection called thcelin. I am •!! •years old and very nervous. A doctor advised this treatment. Answer: Theclin is an ovarian derivative that has been very successful i.'i substitution therapy, especially for relieving- symptoms in the change of life. Sir Osier, if I remember correctly, advocated that all old folks should be chloroformed or something like that. And yet—look at the wonderful achievements -of men and women in their fifties, sixties and seventies. How about Gladstone and Pal- mcrston who were brilliant Prime Ministers at SO? How about John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay? How about Thomas Edison and Henry Ford? How about Justices Kolmes nnd BrAiideis? How about Cordell Hull and Winston Churchill and Generals Eisenhower and Montgomery? It is perfectly true that at a certain age — and I don't think Dr. Midgely or anyone else can set that ago-at a definite year of one's life—the body begins to deteriorate and as the blood gets more sluggish, the legs stiffen and the heart can't quite stand the strain. You have to slow down and begin to take it a bit more easy. But the mind often becomes keener ns physical activity decreases, tho knowledge gained in earlier years can be npplied for the benefit of humanity. And that applies not only to leadership but to nil walks of life. Three miles nway from me n 76- yeal'-old lady runs a little store where she . sells - newspapers and magazines anci candy and cigarettes. Hey son a.nd daughter-in- law live with her. They have asked 76-ycnr-old lady. "If I stop work nnd take it easy. "Oh n-o," says the 7ii-ypoiir-old lady. "If I stop work I'll get old. I want to die young, and I can do that only as long ns I am independent and keep in touch with people." I think Dr. Midgely. president of a great scientific society, can learn a lot from Mrs. Koohlcr who runs that little country store. (Copyright, lfi-4-I, King- -Features Syndicate, Inc.)

For Serge Kousscviwky. this is a double anniversary, since it marks not only his seventieth year, but his twentieth in this country as maestro of the orchestra. Under his regime, the Boston Symphony has by common consent been acclaimed one of the Lhrce top orchestras or the nation; for the duration, at least, it is one of the best ihree in the world. At his seventieth birthday dinner,'the maestro's friends pointed out with pride to the fact that he performed more than 100 works 5y A-merican composers, Gl of them first performances. And for Victor, Dr. Koussevitzky h.-*a recorded much of the music for which ic has pioneered in finding aud- enccs, Prokofieff's popular "Peter in'd Ihc Wolf," and his "Ucuien- int Kijc" Spite, Ravel's "Bolero," Copland's "El Salon Mexico," Rich- ird Sirauss' "Thu.s Spoke Zarathus- >.:•;!." and .Roy Harris' Third Symphony can al! be heard as Kotisso- /itzhy plays them, not only in Boson's stately Symphony Hall, but Red Seal discs.
