According to Dr. Jofcnsont this terr- ; lble social evil is increasing in volume; and flagrancy.

While it should not be im agined that the conditions described are peculiar to say Chicago, a recent report from that city states: Vice In Chicago saloons and taverns flourished. Some saloons were simply houses of prostitution, having adjacent rooms use for voice: host esses solicited at the bars and tables, thence repairing with patrons to connecting rooms. In other cases streetwalkers came into the saloons to solicit.' Bartenders. doormen and toilet attendants served as agents for prostitutes. All which presented a picture disturbingly like the bad cid days before the War." Johnson pays tribute to such "pioneers" as President Eliot cf Harvard, Jane Addams. Frince Morrow end others, who fought C.i or SO years ago for the abolition cf legalized prostitution. They would "smile ruefully at the irony of history" when a prominent American periodical a few weeks ago asked in ail seriousness that hoary Question "Do you think legalized prostitution is the best way to cure the national evil cf venereal disease?" For the correct answer, he adnses that we should read the reports of the SO commissions that have studied the problem as well as medical books, and then visit the clinics and the laboratories. The correct answer to the question, says Dr. Johnson, is: "No. Neither medical ncr social science knows of any practical method for making prostitution safe." Is the Church of Christ deeply concerned about this perilous social situation? The F.eforrned Messen- Ser. Up On The Hill y Tie AsKcis:jd Press! "Anybody wno says life is dull gets a horse laugh from me." So says Richard J. Beamish, 65-fear-old member of the Public Service commission. "My life has been exciting, eventful and full of fighting and interesting things and gets better as I get older," he remarked as he began a cay of conferences and interviews as a commissioner. He was appointed April 1 by Governor Earle to a six-year term en the commission. He was on the Public Service commission curing Pmcbot's administration, and was named chief counsel by Larle before trie t was abolished. Politics has played a big part in Beamish's career. He was born cn election day. November 6, lift. On his twenty-crst birthday anniversary te was admitted to the bar.

Walter Strantz, S4, brought into court in a wheel chair, heard a jury convict him today of murder in the first de-i grce and recommend that he die in the electric chair for the slaying of ; Earl Rowe, Mount Carmel Councilman. The trial began Saturday. The jury took only forty-live minutes to reach a verdict that night. It s sealed and read in court this morning. Strantz slumped over in the chair at the verdict but had no comment. Rowe was shot in his taproom several weeks ago. Earlier the tame night, Mrs. Joseph Yorcavaget was fatally wounded in a quarrel at the home where she was employed as a domestic Sttantj and the woman's husband barricaded themselves in a house after the second shooting. Yorcavage was killed by a posse in the raid and Strantz was wounded in the heel. It was this wound that prevented him from walking into the court hearings.

In the spring a young man's fancy sometime runs away with him. He gets the urge to blossom out in colorful raiment. Not content with fancy habiliment which may be removed at will he desires a more permanent type cf bright-hued dress. So he has some tattooing done on his person. Very pretty. And very permanent. Come a day when he tires of the motto, the full-rigged ship, the rigged ship, the heart and cupid's dart. Try to get rid of them: In tattooing, colors deep in the skin. m They may be removed only by the 1 most orastic operation amounting practically to surgery. The Maoris of New Zealand elevated tattooing to a high art. Tattooing is common in China. Borneo. India and ether parts of the Far East. Sailors introduced the custom to Europe and America. Now there are tattooing parlors, or rather salons, in most large cities. Tattooing has had quite a vogue. 1 , , our Health Many prominent people have sub- of tj.em liT?s in York so we are be-jecte-d themselves to the tattooers j tray'ing no secrets.

This date in history: ' 17S0 General Lafayette, brought General Washington a commission as lieutenant-general in the French army. While our own Washington never was in active service in the French army It is interesting to know that he had the rank of general under two national governments. It was a graceful return of courtesies and an evidence of national good will on the part of the French. ISIS The American Bible society was formed. After more than a century this society is still in existence and is an active agency in the spread of the Gospel." The number of copies of the Bible it has distributed runs into the millions. 1S27 Septimus Winner, an American composer of popular songs, was born. One of his songs, and perhaps the most widely known, was "Listen to The Mocking Bird." He sold the j copyright for the magnificent sum of 55. Other songs of his that were whistled by almost everyone were: "O Where, O Where Is My Little Dog Gone?" and "Little "Brown Jug l"Vu't I Love Thee T There is genuine melodv in the "Mocking Bird" song. -O- 1S49 Madame Recamier, a famous French beauty, died. Her sway as a social leader extended over a period of about fifty years. All the great ones of Paris Cocked to her salons, among them Madame de Statel and Chateaubriand. ' She believed that physical beauty and care of the body are an important and integral part of life. In that respect at least, her influence still goes on. And why not: is not the body the temple of the holy spirit and should it not be kept f.t for the Master's use? Speaking personally, we have no sympathy with the idea of "mortifying the flesh." It is a form of sacrilege. cesw Elizabeth under which it was stated that she is the heir "presumptive" to the British throne. She i not the hesr presumptive, but is the heir apparent. The heir presumptive is her younger sister, Margaret Rose. The heir apparent is the one whose succession to the throne cannot be interfered with by the birth of another possible heir. If Elizabeth, later as queen, should marry and have issue, that child would become the heir apparent. So little Margaret Rose ia only the heir presumptive because the birth of another heir may put her out of the line of succession. But if Elizabeth should die before having issue. Margaret Pose would automatically become heir apparent. If tre were to believe the pictures that the artists draw cf "Mother" for illustrations in magazines and papers for "Mothers' Day" each year the conclusion would be forced upon the world that all mothers are weary old women, happy perhaps but sad and near journey's end. Why, not even our grandmothers look that way nowadays. Haven't the artists grown sickly sentimental toward "Mothers' Day?" Why don't thev show some mothers? There are many, yes, very many of them all around us, moth' ers in the full activity of life, mothers who dance and play with their children and enjoy life with them. Motherhood no longer means being laid on the shelf to pine away and die in weary sadness. Let's have some of this kind next year. And, while speaking of mothers, we'd like to mention two others who have come to our knowledge just within the rast few weeks. Neither jn tte college with her daugh- ter and they are having a lovely time together. Very unusual? Yes, certainly, but it goes to show that not ail mothers are elderly, worn-out women as most of the artists portray them. The presence in town cf the visiting grocers from all over the state calls to mind what marvelous strides have been made since we were a boy in the vast increase in the variety of things that can now be bought in a grocery store. If mother is too busy to prepare a simple noonday meal consisting of some kind of soup, Johnny can run around to the corner and bring back any kind of soup the family prefers, and it will be just as good as any made at home. And if baby's food is not prepared, that too, in a variety of formulas, can be purchased in a can and the baby will laugh and grow fat on it, Those are just examples; it would take too much space to make a long list. There are other differences between the old and the new grocery stores. The old open . cracker barrel, the joke of so many cartoons, is gone; there is no chance now for the crackers to grow stale and gather a layer of dust. The cheese no longer stands exposed where the loafer can stroll over and cut a chunk for himself to be eaten with a handful of crackers grabbed from the old open barrel. And even the bread and cakes that stand on the counters are protected by wrappers and covers of cellophane. And you can't any longer reach into a barrel and bring up a pickle. These improvements not only save money for the grocer but they insure purer food for the consumer. The modern grocery is a great instij tution. Resident enrollment at the Pennsylvania State College has increased nearly 43 per cent in the past decade. There were 3927 students ten years ago. There are now 66S1. EMBLEM OF LOVE Homing Story With her marriage to tall, blond Jack Barrett less than three weeks away, Ann knew she should be profoundly happy. Her trousseau was almost complete, only her wedding dress had yet to be chosen. Aim had a vivid mental picture of herself in traditional w hite satin, offsetting the srlossy black sheen of her hair and sparkling brown eyes. Slim and small and dimpled, Ann Harris knew she would look well. Lately, however, the feeling of discontent had grown within her until now she was very nearly miserable." Ann was SO, and to a girl of an engagement ring can be extremely iimportant. Of course, she told herself, she loved Jack just as much, ring or not it wasn't a matter of how much she loved him. When they first became engaged they had agreed to use Jack's small fund of money to furnish an apartment, paying cash as they bought. For a young man of :5 Jack was extraordinary practical. "It's like this, honey," he explained. "If I have to stretch the bank roll to include a ring, we'll have very little left for furniture and the like. And we don't want debts that's no way to begin our life together. So if you're willing to wait until next year, we'll have a chance to save to get you a really good ring. I love you so much, Ann, I fe-el sorry asking you to wait for it, but it's just not sensible to go into debt." "I don't mind," Ann said then. She hadn't minded, that is, not much. But after weeks of interrogation from her friends, weeks of giving each one the same answer, Ann's desire for an engagement ring had developed into a necessity. A ring was tangible evidence of mutual love. She felt that it would be like putting the cart before the horse, if she had to wait until after marriage for the customary symbol of an engagement. She longed to have admiring groups exclaim over its beauty and to wish her joy, as other girls always had. Instead, they all looked puzzled when she told them she wasn't going to have one just yet. As the days passed and she was obliged to explain the situation with increasing frequency, she tried to avoid meeting people. That was rather rifficnlt, because being a prospective bride, she was naturally the center of attraction wherever she went. Whenever possible, she kept her gloves on so that her ringless left hand would remain unnoticed. Ann couldn't force herself to suggest to Jack that they do without something for their apartment instead of wainting for the ring. It was Jack's money, and she would not beg for anything, anyhow. She was tempted to buy an imitation diamond with her own earnings, but decided not to hurt Jack that way. It would not mean much, but be just for appearances, after all. She did try to drop him a hint as to how she felt. They had been shopping for furniture, and Jack had declared in favor of a more expensive dining room suite that seemed to her unessential. "But, Jack," she arguel. "If we spend a little less, we'll be just as satisfied and, besides. I like the maple set. It's sort of gay looking." "Well, my child, we're not always going to 'play' house." he teased, with an undercurrent of gravity. "When we're old I think we'd appreciate the walnut more than the gay looking maple." "Perhaps, dear." Ann sighed. "I thought we could save the difference and and use it for something else BEAUTY CHATS By EDNA KENT FORBES AN INTERESTING DIET INVENT A GOOD DIET Don't let a reducing diet ge you down: Miss Forbes suggests you invent yourself non-fattening dishes which will taste attractive, and yet reduce you. There is no reason why a reduction diet should not be an interesting one. It might even provide more variety, and . better tasting foods than your usual diet, the one which has obviously been too fattening for you. To reduce, you must of course eliminate certain things, candy and nuts, any fried foods, rich cakes and puddings, thick soups, ice cream, and you must cut way down on butter and cream and oil. Most foods taste better when steamed, broiled or baked. Try original mixtures of vegetables, such as carrots and cauliflower and peas, with a sharp curry sauce poured over thern. Don't fry eggplant, cook it with tomatoes. Make yourself a thin soup of bouillon and beets, and eat it with a. dab of sour cream on the toj Russian bortch, this is. Cook any half-dozen tasteless vegetables together with a lot of onion, put them all through a sieve and eat the resulting puree. Invent all sorts of vegetable and fruit salads, and eat them with mayonnaise made from fine quality tasteless mineral oil, lemon juice and an egg yolk, salt and pepper. Or a French dressing of mineral oil, lemon, salt, sugar, paprika, and put all in a jar with a thick slice of onion to give it flavor best dressing you PAUL CHABAS, WHO PAINTED "SEPTEMBER MORN" DIES IN PARIS Paris, May 10. (AP) Paul Chabas, who painted the famous picture, "September Morn," in 1912, died today after along i long illness. He was 65 years old. For two years Chabas had been an invalid, and the only painting hung on the wall of the room where he spent most of his days was his own copy of the picture that made him world famous. "I love that picture," he said recently of "September Morn." "They call it my masterpieces perhaps it is. I only know that in it is all that I know of painting." "Matinee de Septembre" was painted at Talloirse on the shore of Lawe Annecy in Upper Savoy with something, we planned to gret later." "Oh, don't worry, honey," with masculine misunderstanding. "We'll be able to manage it all right We're not going to start cutting anything until we have to." So that was that. But it was exciting to tramp in and out of the stores btiving things for their new home. Ann was mildly surprised to find out how many things were re quired to start housekeeping. If it had not been for the stormy discontent deep within her, her sky would have been cloudless. Jack's mother remarked one evening about the weary droop that had settled upon her. "You're looking tired, my dear," she said, regarding Ann with concern. "I think you're rushing around too much." 'Tin quite all risht, really," protested Ann. "Haven't you two got everything now?' Mrs. Barrett refused to drop the matter so lightly. "I wanted you to take me to see the apartment later, but I think Ann had bettor rest right here this evening. You're going to spoil your complexion if you don't," she smiled at Ann, but her eyes remained serious. Engaged girls generally look starry-eyed and possess an over-abundant supply of energy, she thought. "Look at me, young lady," Jack said sternly. "Brown eyes like yours are prettier without dark circles underneath them. Ann you're looking pale, too." "My goodness?" Ann pretended shocked surprise. "I must get my compact." Throughout the evening. Ann tried to be gay and merry, and Jack was satisfied. His mother was tenderly solicitous. She made Ann comfortable on the divan and left the two young people alone. Later, she returned with a tray of chocolate and small iced cakts. Watching her hands moving among the tray things, as if fascinated, Ann felt the tears sting her eyes. She fought for control, pressing her lids together hard for a minute. As she opened them she glanced quicly at Mrs. Barrett and their eyes met and held. Ann turned away, but that instant was a revelation. "Jack," Mrs. Barrett said to her son. "I think this child needs to get some sleep. You take her home now, and don't plan anything for tomorrow. Ann can take a day off I've a strong feeling she needs it. When you get back, come up and say good night to me. I'll be waiting up for you." Next evening when Jack called at the Harris home he found Ann still a little pensive. Her kiss lacked its usual warmth. Jack sat down. Without speaking, he reached for her hand and forced a small box into it. "Jack! Oh, Jack!" Ann was instantly alert, at one knowing, yet disbelieving. Her eyes filled w ith happy tears as she opened the box and saw a modest diamond ring sparkling inside. A tear dropped before she could w ink it back, and splashed on Jack's hand. "Gosh, I'm dumb, sweetheart," he said gently. "You should have told me how much a ring meant to you. I wouldn't have known even now, if mother, hadn't told me. She told me in no uncertain words what her own ring means to her I hope you'll forgive me for being so stupid, dear." For an answer, Ann threw her arms around him and kissed him. "I love you, Jack," she said. Boston Post. ever ate, and not a calorie in it Cut all fat off meat Make yourself grand Irish stews with lamb, onion, carrots and peas and almost no po- ! tato.

Whiteheads are harder to clear off the skin than blackheads, because of the covering of skin over them. There is always some risk of a scar in pricking the covering, and it is best to work for the clearing of the pores, so there will be no need of forcing the impact through the opening. Constant daily stimulation of the skin will be needed to do this, by using creams or oil, also trentle massage, hot baths for the entire body, preferably hot showers, in which the skin over the entire body is steaming. Work for stimulation all over the body, and the complexion will share in it. By freeing the pores all over the skin, there is less work for all pores of the complexion.

The original hangs in a great Paris townhouse, not far from the suburb where Chabas spent his last years, but he had not seen it since it was bought several years ago by C. S. Gulbenkian, wealthy Armenian, its present owner. Chabas insisted he had no desire to see the original. "If I had never seen it from the day I put down by brushes after painting it, I could make a perfect copy," he once said. The price paid for this original was not revealed, though it is known Chabas in his prime virtually dictated his own prices. At least three of his pictures have brought 100,000 francs each a sum equivalent to 400,000 francs, or $18,000, today. When anger rises, think consequences. Confucius. o the DEATHS AND BURIALS J.

SUIT OVER DAMAGE TO FENCE AND TREES The cutting down of a wire fence and alleged damage to shrubbery has involved three property owners of tightner's hill, north of the city, in litigation which has been held for the action of the grand jury by Alderman Jacob Stager. The defendants, Morgan Kohr and Joseph Matthews, are charged with malicious mischief on complaint of Robert Hoffman, head of the York Oil Burner company. State Trooper Lawrence L Priar is the prosecutor in the case. Hoffman alleges that Kohr and Matthews cut down about thirty-nine feet of steel wire fence and that they broke down and damaged three ever green trees and shrubbery on his property. The defendants deny knowledge of the damage to the fence and shrubbery, which they allege are not on the property of Hoffman. Letters From The People COMES TO DEFENSE OF V. N. A.

A., which is known throughtout tho nation, redounds to citizens of York and to the women who have served unselfishly on its board of directors. Not so very long ago, the treasurer of tho association disappeared. It camo to bo known that the missing treasurer was not bonded. This fact, to a great number of persons, is hardly understandable, for the posting of a bond by those who are financially responsible is an almost universal practice. The board of directors of the Visiting Nurse association have worked diligently and intimately in the cause, for a number of years, progressing very well with mutual understanding, mutual faith and mutual trust among themselves. In their devotion to tho cause and their associated fellowship, it is quite conceivable, that tho thought of demanding a bond might have been considered a gratuitous insult not essentially different than a man demanding that his wife or children secure bond, insuring him if their fidelity. Leave it be understood that this writer is not defending a loose business practice, nor minifying the enormity of the directors' mistake, but trying to be fair to a group of women, deserving of no little credit, and under the present circumstances rating a bit of sympathetic understanding along with the condemnation. Consider if you will the blow experienced by the V. X. A. upon discovery of tho mysterious absence of tho treasurer whom they trusted. Consider the stunning realization, too late, of the importance of a posted bond, even among friends. Tho disappearance of a prominent person is invariably bound to raise a question or two in the minds of tho general public. The question unanswered often works a deviltry of its own among the bnffled populace. Whispers arise like strumpet winds. Doubts spring up and a cyclone of rumors, mostly unfounded, sweeps the community. Certain citizens it seems are seized with something akin to mob frenzy. Some one cries out they are shielding the guilty person: others screech: "What is the matter with the newspapers?" "Why don't they tell us the truth?" (most invariably, these folks adhere to a rumor of their own fancy and imagine that it is the truth). The press, they expect, should be a detective agency. It is with the feeling of disquiting futility that I WTite this, for when suspicion is rampant, neither goodwill nor reason can prevail. And nt no other time is it easier to condemn than to construct. The letter signed "Several Financial helpers." appearing in this column last Saturday, made vocal many of the doubts and whispers concerning the plight of the V. N, A. It did more, it condemned the association and invited the opinions of other persons on the matter. It is perhaps well that the writers of that letter (which suggested "a thorough housecleaning") did not come out into the open with their names. A day may come when the truth with its implications will be uncovered and published. When the truth comes to light the writers of the above mentioned letter. . May readily disclaim their outburst and thank the very pusillanimity that kept their names from the letter. Until the truth is discovered and brought to light, we should keep the faith with a great institution in a good city. ROBERT B. BICKEL. N. S. P. P. C GOODS Editor The Gazette and Daily: Food stands first in the life of a people. The yearly food requirements, per capita, of the U. S. Department of Agriculture, compared with the real picture, reveals a startling deficiency: Annual Liberal Diet 1929 Peak Production (Lbs. per capia per year) (thousand of Lbs.) Items Pounds Deficiency Surplus Flour and cereals. 100 16.022.&I2 Milk 636 26.967,000 Potatoes 155 1,030.670 Beans, peas, nuts 7 1,396,240 Tomatoes, citrous fruits 110 1,382,926 Leaf and other green vegetables. 135 7,300,936 Other vegetables and fruits ....323 12.326.000 Butter 35 2,234,688 Fats, bacon and lard 17 2,833,000 Sugar and mol&oses 60 2,461,450 Meats, including fish 165 1,986,265 Eggs (individual eggs) 360 13,723,370 (Cirsular 296, U. S. Dept. of Agriculture) On this basis the most accurate figures disclose an annual deficiency of approximately 27 billion pounds of milk, (the equivalent of 13 billion quarts), a deficiency of 1 1-S billion pounds of totnatoes and citrous fruits, a deficiency of more than 12 billion pounds of fruits and green vegetables, a deficiency of 2 billion pounds of meats, and more than 13 billion eggs and 214 billions of pounds of sugar. In other words our so-called "economy of plenty" with its 527 million acres and its 6 million farmers, has failed (not only in one year, but in a 5-year average test) to meet the adequate food requirements of its people to the astonishing extent of nearly 100 billions of pounds of foodstuffs! In order to make up a large portion of this annual food deficit we were forced to import some 22 billions of pounds of food. Under no stretch of the imagination can this be termed an economy of abundance. Ample food (26,919 million dollars worth, including confectionery, restaurant fare, liquor and exports), was produced in 1929 to satisfy the nutrition needs of the people. Since the buying power of 16 million non-farm families (59 per cent of the total of all families) was under $2000, these families were unable, obviously, to enjoy the more expensive foods. Consequently, the national diet show an excessive consumption of starch and sugar 'and a deficient consumption of fruits, vegetables and meat. These 16 million families no doubt had to defer their purchases until a percentage of the available food had reached the "requisite degree of obsolescence and physical decay" to warrant price reductions. Food to a total of 30,692 million dollars only 3000 million dollars worth more than was produced would have provided every person with a "liberal diet" (See page 12, Stiebling and Ward, "Diets at Four Levels of Nutritive Content and Cost," Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C), as well as luxury food and liquor to the amount consumed in 1929. Since It would take many years of education and propaganda before the American people could be persuaded to shift from bread over to milk, fruits and veg- GOES TO COURT FOR LARCENY BY TRICK Kll Williams, York R.

Our food processing facilities are already capable of satisfying the recom'-mended consumption. In the groat prosperous year of 1929 the male population of the United States was supplied with a bare one-third of a garment of new outerwear. While, at the same time, the capacity on a plant basis was barely able to supply a fraction less than a single new suit of clothes for each male. In other words, in this land of plenty, where two new suits of clothes per year may be a reasonable expectation, the American ability, with existing plant equipment and material capacities taken into consideration, disclosed a deflc-ency of some 66 million suits. For the female population, which fared much better than the male, there was barely one-half garment (skirts, ensembles and suits) per capita: while on a minimum living standard basis of two new outer garments each, the deficiency was in excess ot some 52 million garments. Yet in 1929, in order to supply our population with barely one-half a new garment each, we were forced to import more than one-half billion pounds of wool and cotton, to sav nothing of other fibres. And had we then had the mechanical capacity to supply two full garments each, we would have been forced to Increase our supply of cotton, cither bv additional importation or cultivation, by a full 5 billion pounds; and our wocii by more than 1 billion pounds, which means an increase of six times onr present number of sheep and an additional 17 million acres in cotton cultivation. In 1929, 57 million men and bovs purchased some 29.09 million suits, 9.27 million coats and 173.06 million skirts; 57 million women and girls purchased 206 million dresses and frocks, 614 million pairs of stockings and 259 million pieces of underwear. If production had been limited by physical factors only, the men could have had 79 million suits. 21 million coats, 396 million shirts. The women could have had 4S5 million dresses and frocks, 1069 million palre of stockings and 510 million pieces of underwear. The clothing budget (amounting to more than 18 billion dollars) provides for 67 million men's suits. 28 million men's coats, 363 million men's shirts, 275 million dresses, 681 million pairs of women's stockings and 427 million pieces of women's underwear. ,This budget, In most '.terns, has been kept well under capacity operation of the plant. It does not require all the cotton available in 1929, but will necessitate an Increased importation of wool and silk the former only for a short time. Such an importation could be arranged by increasing the exportation of other commodities desired in foreign lands and easily produced here in excess of domestic needs. This budget would require a three shift operation in a majority of cotton textile mills. Production in 1929 (including styled goods, custom tailoring, etc.), amounted In retail value to 10.176 million dollars. (This budget calls for production at the rate of 16.769 million dollars (including furs, which are not listed in the budget). Even then, an excess capacity still would remain, suffcient to allow the Inevitable demands for (luxury) wearing apparel. TRUMAN 3. KEESEY. A
