Children Live Longer T HE Population Keierencc ijureau, a research organization that studies and analyzes population trends and •tatistics, has this very optimistic advice to all Americans, "whoever you are and where^ver you live, chances are 4h«t you will live longer than your parents and consider- •bly longer than your grandparents; and your children Will fare even better." The American baby will, on the average, live 21.5 years longer than his grandparents who were born in 1900. Medical progress since the beginning of the century hss made that prediction certain. That indicates that at this mid-century a majority of today's babies will be here when the new century dawns, and they will be carrying with them a large proportion of their parents. Who will then be in their seventies, eighties and even nineties. For some unknown reason, mid westerners are the longest lived Americans. Since on the average women live longer than men, white people live longer than colored and rural people longer than city people, statistics indicate that a white woman living in Nebraska has the best chance to live to be 85 years or more. They don't tell whether she has to be native born, or if she can mi- frate amid the~corn huskers to attain her lurigevily. A natural exercise these days is sticlting the neclc out to ask Junior or little sister what they want for Christmas. Actually, when the first heavy snow and slippery driving day passes, the worst is over. You get used to it. It's tough when you cash a check for a person before you find Wt ht lacks balance. Need Intellectual Resources Some 200,000 of the nation's brighter High school graduates lost to higher education each year must be drawn into colleges to conserve the nation's intellectual resources at the 18-year-old level, a report of the College Entrance Examination Board finds. Half this number can be enrolled in colleges if immediately 100,000 additional scholarships are provided. The other half can be secured through a program of revitalized guidance to insure that another 100.000 High school graduates of superior ability acquire the desire for advanced education .they now lack. These findings were made in a report prepared by Charles.C, Cole, Jr., assistant dean of Columbia College, commissioned by the board and supported by the Nation- ftl Science Foundation. They constitute a must program to remedy the serious shortages of scientists and engineers, and maintain American technological leadership.

Peri.shable presents aj'e either stored in the huge White House basement icebo.xe.s or given to charitable organizations. Much of Ike's mas loot is quietly given to orphans' homes or to other wortl;y groups. Gifts from personal friendcs or special little things which they think might tickle his fancy are sent to the l^residenl. A careful list is kept of each gift and thank- you notes are mailed to the senders. • * • IVIEMBES OF IKE'S Cabinet have just as much holiday spirit as anyone, but most of them have taken time to sit down and pen a little reminder to their employes that imbibing on federal property in oifice parties is against the law. Secretary of Labor James Mitchell, for example, in his note doesn't come right out and say don't drink, fellow workers He just suggests that coffee and sandwiches are just as good lor revving up the holiday mood. At Commerce, Secretary Weelcs is more specific. Old-time government workei's always recall the classic Christmas party story. Seem.s a Veterans Administration oiticial had a snort oi" two and chased his secretai-y down the hall. That might not have been so bad, but she tripped and broke her hip and had to be carted off in an ambulance. Ever since, VA has been the driest agency in town before Christmas. * * * THE WHITE HOUSE STAFF will really have the festive treatment ready for the Ei.seu- howers during the holidays. With the first family in Gettysburg, members of the Washington staff have had time to knock themselves out preparing for the arrival of Ike and Mamie some time before Christmas. In addition to the traditional Chri.stnias holly and wreaths on the doors and windows- inside there will be gaily decorated trees on every floor. They've cooked up several .spo- ciitl-stirprise decorations for the living ciuarieis of the executive mansion.

Is th.ii Ike's Christmas Gifts PKIVATELY, THE embassies here aren't too happy about participating in all the whoop to-do which surrounds the Christmas tree-lighting ceremonies near the Washington monument groimds. They feel they're black-jacked into participating in a commercial project benefiting Washington stores. Sponsors of the event wanted one embassy to fly reindeer to town from its country as a publicity stunt. The idea was curtly turned down. n * * NOTHING WAS TOO GOOD for Uruguay's Ihesident Luis Batlle Berres who came to the capital for an official visit. But the lavish treatment he received may cost Vice-President Nixon plenty of votes in California. In the absence of the President, Nixon liosted a state dinner for the VIP from south of the border. Prominent on the menu were three kinds of Frencli wine. Coinpletely lacking, however, was any sign of California vino. This will be a hard one for the VP to explain to the home folks. * • • PESIDENT BATLLE received a bona fide invitation to come to the United States, by the way. Some recent foreign dignitaries have had to come in by a special back-door technique quietly arranged by the State Department. They first check into a hospital for physical examination or treatment as an excuse to enter the country. * * * « THE DUTCH NOW OFFER a drink called "jenever'' to challenge the current vodka rage. Dr. L. R. W. Soutendijk, Dutch financial coun- seler, featured it at a pai-ty at his home claiming, "it does everything vodka does and more." Over at the Czech embassy they're drinking budweizer these days. This isn't alcoholic de­ lect ion. it's just a native brew and has no re* semblance to the American brand. * * + TWO LUNCHEON CIRCUIT records were broken the other day at the presentation of Harmon trophies to Navy Capt. Marion H. Eppes, for a nine-day, 3,000 -mile sustained airship flight, and to Mariije Lt. Col. James F. Coleman, for tlijdits in the vertical take -off plane. First mark set was total time consumed. Cocktails started at noon. Abut 1:30 great hunks of steak and the trimmings were served. Then siieeclies. Second record was for length of introduction of a speaker. Adm. Charles E. Rosendahl took 45 minutes to present Adm. Thomas S. Combs. Insists On Being Frank Irui''."' Answer: There are similar rumors around the Capital, and they emanate from rather authentic sources. Itis true that Ike cannot ^ivc the time to the details of foreign and <loiiiestic programs that he would devote if he were an entirely well man. But the fact is that nothing especially new or novel has Ix-en presented to him. lie has been required only to okay plun.s which had been agreed upon ;{cnernlly before he became ill. Ou laltor for instance, as Secretary James r. .Mitchell points out, he plans to let the unions and management solve their difficulties, keeping this problem away from the \> hitc House and nut of politics insofar as he can. • • • \F\V I'UOI'OSALS IN BENSON POGRAM ."Secret,ir.v Benson finally got around to dis- <us-,ini; the lai'm problem with him. B ;it there \\<re only two new items in Benson's program, • nul lioili were relatively minor. Ike had only to nod his head in agreement. The new proposals concern the establishment of a soil bank, and an attempt to persuade Con- Ljes.- to fix a maximum on the amount of money wliitli will h(> advanced to individual farmers, eiiliei III lo.iiis or purchase of their crops.

Adams-st, firemen reported. George E. Sokolaky physics And chemistry Many who arc Interested In history, eivka, and character building by precept complain about the weaknesses of the public achoola throughout the country. But recently reports have been coming in complaining that the young people get Inadequate training in chemistry, physics and mathematics and that therefore we are running short of engineers. A correspondent from Oklahoma writes to me: "A recent survey in Oklahoifra showed many high schools that teach,no physics And many taught no chemistry and also quite a number , that offered no kind of science at all—even 'general science.' This was made as an answer to ' complaints that high school students entering college were deficient in English and math. That most of them had to take for instance remedial math in college they should have gotten in high school." A former teacher from Idaho writes to me: "My sister, a teaoher, visited second grade in a school in Indiana. The teacher spent a whole period teaching them that four fish and three fish were seven fish. The whole discourse was changed to make the impression that four fish and three fish were seven fish. (They can only understand symbols, not sums.) "I took an eUhth trade student, who had rotten an abaolate lero on his mid-year mathematics test, for remedial work. Hr didn't know his tables, and his addition and his addition and subtraction were done by marking up or back according to the process. He did not know the days «f week in rotation or the months of the year. One problem was 1 year 6 mo equals- -mo. He did not know what it meant. He said there were only t in the elass who could do the work. The teacher screamed and 'hollered' so no one asked for help. "The arithmetic Itself had been lowered to about sixth grade ability of the year 1914. I don't know v/hen it was lowered." I have received numerous similar letteis which cause one to wonder what is being taught in these schools. I do know that freshman in one of the mo;5t important universities are required to take a course in EnglLsh which, In my day was taught in early High .school. That mei that the standards in High school must lUV* been lowered .several time.s a.s indeed they haft been. But what is. tatight to our children? WNrt is done with their time? The White* House conference on education seems to have devoted itself to a consideration not of education but of .school buildings. What have they done about 'the .suhiects that/are being taught and why this, of all countries, should complain of a lack of engineers? These are questions that ought to he a .sked by parents of school superintendents—what are they doing? I came across a senuence called "English-History," in which English and history are simultaneously taught as though they were one subject. Already geography has been absorbed by history and now it nil depends upon whether the teacher knows her English or her history. It is probably against the rules to know both! At any rate, the child,, does not get a full dose of either sub,iect and will go to college, if she gets into a good one, a dlf- advantage. In the same school, I found that foreigners had been cngagcA to teach current events: so it was all aboht the United Nations and the greatness of European civilisation but the United States was portrayed in meager terms, as a country that has everything but ^shares little. This White House conference on education might also have taken up the sid).icct of report cards which are hecoming increasingly complicated, so that parent.s are unable to comparisons to guide them as to their children 's progress. Such schools as go in for fancy re» port cards have dropped the comparatives or numerical marking.s such as 100 percent or 40 percent, but go in for siib.jective, phys- chological analysts of the teacher's mind and personality rather than of the .•'tudent's. They tell not about the student which may or may not be important, depending upon the relation- shin. What is required of all teachers Is objectivity which is often difficult Id attain. The simpler the system of reportinr'. the easier It will be for the parent to co-operate in the edu (!a* tion of the child. The Doctor Says: ' JORDAK, MR DEADLY CARBON iMONOXIDE LURKS IN BURNED GASES EACH year a number of tragic and unnecessary deaths result fiom accidental carbon monoxide-poisoning. Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas which appears in dangerous quantities in the air we breathe when too much oxygen is burned up by such ;,hings as a running automobile motor oifj a gas heater. Since this can occur only in a closed space, accidents of this sort are far less common In warm seasons when windows and doors are likely to be open. When a person breathes in a toxic (poisonous) amount of carbon monoxide this gas combines with that portion of the blood known as hemoglobin and replaces the oxygen which Is normally attached to the hemoglobin. • 1^ * THIS RESULTS in starving the tissues of life-giving oxygen and the person who is exposed long enough to sufficient qualities of carbon monoxide quickly becomes unconscious. If it continues he dies without regaining consciousness. When only small amounts of carbon monoxide are present warning symptoms may be present such as headache, dizziness, nausea, muscular weakness, and a generally uncomfortable feeling. It Is only when large amounts of carbon monoxide are present that the victim becomes drowsy and unconscious so fast that these symptoms are absent. • • • THERE IS PROBABLY no such thing as chronic poisoning from carbon monoxide. One would expect it to be found in people who are exposed to small amounts of carbon monoxide for lo.ig periods of time, such as those working in certain mining operations, near furnaces, or in garages. Actually such persons do not seem to be harmed in any way. The use of defective stoves or furnaces and running the motors of automobiles In closed garages, however, are Invitations to the next world. • • • IF STILL ALIVE, a person who has been exposed to carbon monoxide should be removed from the bad air at one. Artificial rseprlatlon , and giving oxygen as soon as possible are desirable.
