PUBLIC OPINION GUEST EDITORIAL The Daily News believe that public opinion which will permit proper social relations to bring about health, happiness and prosperity, is the biggest problem facing the American people today. As Professor Whiteheatl, the eminent British mathematician and philosopher, expressed it, "the problem is not how to produce great men, but howi to produce great societies. The great society will put up men for the occasion." We know of no better way of helping bring this about in our own community than to get the practical, prominent citizens to, figuratively speaking, "think out loud" on fundamental questions. • With this idea in mind the Daily News will start on Sunday a series of Guest Editorials, written by citizens of Pampa and the Panhandle area. The first guest editor will be C. H. Walker, of Pampa, former editor of the Dalhart Texan, who recently was appointed postmaster of Pampa and who will assume duties of that office July 1. Whatever is discussed by Mr. Walker ill his editorial will be of his own choice. This will be true of all the guest editors. The Daily News management does not propose that id«as in the guest editorials necessarily coincide with those held by the newspaper. It will be the purpose of the guest editorial column to carry the cross-section of opinion of the thinkers of the community and district. . We feel that having problems of the day discussed by various Pampa, Gray county and Panhandle citizens will bring about a much better general understanding and solution of these problems. For, as Spencer said: "It is for each to utter that which he sincerely believes to be true, and add this unit of influence to all other units of influence and let the results work themselves out." SIGNS OF PROGRESS Figures compiled by the federal housing administration justifying an optimistic outlook for the construction industry will be hailed with satisfaction by observers of the business scene. . According to a statement given out by Stewart McDonald, federal housing administrator, substantial gains in home building for 1936 are certain. After the first week in May, mortgage insurance arrangements approved by the FHA passed the $300,000,000 mark. During the first nine days in June mortgages accepted for insurance totaled $14,285,387.—indicating that this month would surpass the increases shown in May. The latest cheering figure is that mortgage insurance agreements are being Offered for FHA approval at the rate of $1,500,000 a day for each working day. In many cities field representatives of FHA are making extensive efforts to acquaint persons with the possibility of financing new home building by means of low cost mortgages. Doubtless such educational campaigns will give further shots in the arm to the lagging construction industry. : As taxpayers read the news of potential revival of an industry which has been slow to respond to recovery encouragement, they will be gratified to reflect that FHA is operating efficiently. All the financing of new mortgages is being handled by private financial institutions. FHA merely insures the private concerns against loss. Meanwhile, too, the construction industry is sitting up and taking notice. BEHIND THE SCENES IN WASHINGTON -BY RODNEY DUTCHER- NEA Service Staff Correspondent • PHILADELPHIA. — Congressman William Lemke's third party candidacy hangs vaguely like a cloud over the Democratic convention. Not too black, nor too low, at least as yet, but conspicuous enough to cause politicians te- ask one another whether it is going to rain and, if so, hbw hard. ;. The "Union Party" holds a possibility of disaster for the Democrats. How imminent or how remote that possi- oility may be will be a matter of argument until the campaign gets under way and one can begin to estimate the extent to which Lemke, with the support of Father Coughlin and his appeal to followers of Dr. Townsend and the late Huey Long, is going places and in which direction. -'• The question here, where it is commonly believed Roosevelt has a definite edge on Landon, is whether Lemke could draw off sufficient votes in enough states to give Landon the election. • That brings up the all-important question: How close is. the contest between Roosevelt and Landon, other things being equal, going to be? The answer to that one is that nobody knows. Anyone will comprehend the situation who looks at the election results in two previous years, 1916 and 1924. Iji^the first instance it will be seen how a few thousand Lemke votes in a single state might decide whether Robaevelt or Landon was to be the next president if the race were close. 1 The second instance demonstrates how Lemke might poll a much bigger vote than anyone supposes he will and still have no effect on the result if there were a strong national trend toward, let's say, Roosevelt. • J. Frank Hanly of Indiana, and Ira Landrith of Massachusetts, ran on the Prohibition party ticket in 1916 an-d polled 220,000 votes. You may remem'ber that the issue hung in the balance for three days because of a close contest in California, Which finally by 3773 votes gave her 13 electoral votes to. Woodrow Wilson and elected him over Charles-Evans Hughes, now chief justice, by an electoral total of 277 to 254, '(' The Prohibition party in California polled nearly 28,000 popular votes. If there had been no Prohibition ticket and Hughes could have won four out of every seven of those dry voters, Wilson woulc} not have been president. There was good reason for believing that the drys would h»ve gone for Hughes. • The contest was close in all respects. Wilson's popular V&e WftS only 9,129,000 as compared with 8,538,000 for Hughes, The moral is that if there's any neck and neck finish aspect to 19.36, Lemke is likely to elect Landon over Roosevelt.

IAGO GALD5TON Sunburn The health advantages derived from sunlight are obvious, but excessive exposure, especially in those unacclimated, may be harmful. Tanning is desirable and beneficial, but burning is injurious. Prolonged exposure to bright sun light in those not accustomed to its rays may be dangerous. In addition to the resulting sunburn the individual may suffer headache, irritation of the lining membranes of the brain and spinal cord, called meningismus, and when the atmosphere has a high humidity, sunstroke or heat stroke may result. For severe eases of sunburn, expert nieclical treatment is required, In milder cases, the individual should go to bed and apply to the burned area a lotion made of vinegar and water, half and half. Where large blisters have developed and the upper layers of the skin Have /or jlteNnvYork Academy ctMcdkmt been raised and ruptured, the application of a brew made of strong tea will bring relief. This should be applied directly to the burned skin, without a dressing. Those who, while exposed, desire protection against ultraviolet light, may cover the exposed portions of the body with peanut, olive or sesame oil. However, these "physical umbrellas" interfere with the heat radiation of the body, and may bring on what is worse than sunburn—"heat burn." When using any of the above named oils one should not be exposed to the sun more than 30 to 45 minutes. Most of the "sunburn preventives 1 ' on the market contain a salicylic radical. Not all are safe to use. It is better to take the medicine of sunlight in graduated dceses until the body develops its own protection in the form of skin pigmentation. Talks Corrective Methods By BROOKE PETERS CHURCH Shell I spank my child? Will he be crushed and humiliated if I do? Will I leave scars oh his personality, crush his self-respect and cow him for life by such treatment? Shall I be taking advantage of his weakness and defenselessness, acting the bully if I lay hands on him and force him by violence to obey my rules? It all depends, not on what one cices, but how one does it. There are just as many bullies among non- spankers as among spankers, just as many children are injured for life by moral suasion and mental torture as by physical force and bodily torture. The bully is always the bully no matter how he expresses hlmsejf. All the .child asks and needs is Justice and the feeling that he is being -punished, not to saM5f.y. personal rancor, but on an- established principle of right and wrong. In punishing a child consistency and reason are far more Important than the form the punishment takes. The child who sees the reason for his punishment and acknowledges it, needs very little correction beyond a word of reproof arid advice here and there, and should need no punishment at all by the time he is eight or ten. The child who always has been punished because his parents were annoyed or hurt or tired, and took these personal feelings out on him by scolding or spanking, will probably never learn the rules by which the world lives, but will be a rebel and need correction all his Hie. Frequent punishment of any kind defeats its own ends. Punishment should never be given in a spirit of revenge. It cannot undo the past, but should look toward the future. If this is kept in mind, what one does to attain the desired end becomes unimportant. M. P. DOWNS Automobile} Loans Hbortjgd Lpni Tehn» REffTNANOJNq Small «nd l*r«e 104 Oonibs-Wortey Bid*.
