^**W " >- i swftV" ~ t rr r j , <* / Page HOPE Easy for Visitors to Think Spain is a Land Flowing With Milk and Honey By DEWITT MACKENZIE AP Vvtjrld Traveler Madrid, Jan. 17—It would be easy lor the visitor in Madrid to leap to the conclusion that Spain is n land tknving with milk and honey, there's such a l>letititude of the good things of. life Available in the capital — at a price. People of means are so accustomed to abundance that amazement was expressed by residents with whom I was lunching in n deluxe hotel because the usual succulent beefsteaks weren't available for that meal. The menu was !'ir,d"d with all sorts of other :"ood, but it happens that there's a short- fcye ut o^et rignt now. at least in the city markets. What was true of food Is also largely true of both necessities and luxuries in other lines. In short, up to the time Mrs. Mack and I left New York at the end of November, probably no city in America had recovered sufficiently i'rcfn war strain to produce such luxi.li ions meals as Madrid can serve-. And of course London and Paris, which we also have visited, j struggle alona far behind. However, it's well that we introduce a qualification right here lest there be any mistaken idea that Spain is riding the crest of the economic wave. She. also has her troubles and her prosperity is rather in the coachdbg category — that is, spotty. Among other things, the cost o£ living-has risen so high that people of small means are having a hard time — a situation With which we shall deal in a subsequent column. - We can say, though, that on the whole Spain's relative economic position among the European countries is good. She ranks well among -.the other neutral states of Switzerland. Portugal and Sweden. Potentially. Spain may be better cCf than present conditions indicate 'Last year's fierce drougth not only resulted in heavy crop failures but emptied reservoirs and thus deprived the country of much water power. Furthermore, the nation's transport systems are run down especially road transport, ana heavy imports are needed to repair the deficit. . Favorable -'weather this year will do much to improve the economic situation. Under normal circumstances that should make the position of the wage earner easier Of course the black market is having a field day in Spain, just as it is m other European couri- This is reflected in all categories of necessities as well as luxuries. And among the necessities are nouses and apartments, which brine premiums "that are far beyond the means of the man in the street "But if you have the cash you can Hope Star Star of Hop* 1699; Pnti 1927, ContolUated January 18, 1929 Published every weekday afternoon by Star Publishing Co., Inc.

That is a trail which in many of the less fortunate war torn countries is being lined with dead. o Rice Beats •s'm Close Game College Station, Te>:., Jan. 17 — (/Pi— The Rice Owls were a shade . ahead of Arkansas . and Texas Chrislian in the Soulhwest Conference basketball race today but they had to live through some anxious moments with the lightly-regarded Texas Aggies to gain Ihe advantage.

Bevin. launching into the controversial trusteeship question, was the first speaker al the assembly meeting to disclose concrete steps by any nation to start placing mandated and conquered enemy territories under the sovereignty^ of the United Nations. The United States is primarily concerned in the trusteeship ques- lion because of the numerous American-conquered Japanese islands in the Pacific. Bevin declared that "with the same courage and devotion" with which (he British had fought in wars of the past 30 years "we now dedicate all our capacity, courage and achievements to building up world order and peace."

He said he pleaded wilh Lr.urcl to intercede but was told: "We are bitler against Justice Abad Santos." The justice's son, Jose Abad Santos, Jr., testified that when the Japanese arrested his father at Cebu City, lie heard him shouting at his captors: "I can't .do thai because if I do I will be breaking my allegiance to the United States:" The son said il. was obvious he was refusing a Japanese demand to collaborate.

WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN | Written for NEA Service I Hayfevcr, asthma, certain var- 1 ieties of headache, ac/.cma nnd | hives are ail manifestations of j allergy. From !> lo 10 per cent of s the population suffers from allergy, i but this docs not represent an in| crease as physicians and patients I alike have simply become more 1 allergy conscious. j When allergic individuals avoid i the substances which causes their attacks, they are normal. Al- I though there is a popular misconception lhal Ihey are more inlolligcnl than average, there is fair evidence to show that allergic porso'ns .suffer less from diabeles. cancer. tuberculosis and high pressure than non-allergic and lhal Iheir life- span is unaffected by their disease except in cases in which complications of asthma develop. Allergic atlacks are provoked by (jaling. drinking, breathing or touching a substance lo which we nre sensitive. Food, bever'- agCH, spices. condiments, house dust, animal, dandruff, face powders, cosmetics, tobacco, insecticides, drugs and chemicals may cause allergic attacks. Drugs and chemicals are more apt lo cause skin reactions lhan olher varieties of allergy. Heredity plays an important role in allergic sensitivity. ALLERGY REACTIONS VARY Some patients develop their al- tael;s after coming in contact wilh extremely small amounts of the offending substance, while others must receive a heavy dose before trouble develops. Allergic reactions can develop immcdialc- ly after exposure or they may be delayed for hours. During allergic attacks, a chemical subh'Umco called hislamine liberated by the cells. Scicnlisls have been searching for drugs which will net as antagonists to hislainine. and bcnadyrl is being tried with fair success. WATCH FOR CLEWS Patients can be of grout assistance to their physicians in carefully recording the circumslance under which an atlack slarled. Sufferers are urged to note the day on which their symptoms started and stopped and those days in which Ihey were worse. No clow is loo insignificant to overlook. A physician was consulted by several men whose face:-- broke out on Sunday eve n!i:i: or Monday morning.

Mrs. Campbell The other day a girl broke off j her engagement lo a man who is i lechnically known as a good catch, and svhen asked why she did so, she replied: "I called the wedding off for ten cents. That is selling out love's young dream at bargain rales, but when Tom refused to give a poor waitress in a cheap restaurant a dime tip, 1 thought that if he had that sort of a Yale lock on his pockctbook i had belter slick to my own pay envelope." ' O wise maiden A Solomon in pelticoats! If ever a dime saved a woman's happiness, that one did. For il showed you just what sort of'a life ' of sordid penny-pinching you would have lo go through il you married a man who would work you like a slave and begrudge Ihe very food you ate. SLAVE-WIVES And there are plenty of such husbands. Men whose wive3 do the vork of half a dozen servants, yel o never have a nickel that they can spend as they please. Wives vliosc husbands dole out the mar; cet money and who arc required o account for every potato and oaf of bread they buy. Wives vhose husbands hold them responsible for Ihe high cost of living and who make lhc first of the Tionlh, when the bills come in, a day of torment that they dread as mich as Ihey would the Judgement Day. Of course, when a girl' marries man who turns her life into cinders, ashes and dust by lhc way ic treats her, her alibi is that she was the viclim of a confidence game. She asserts she was clcceiv ed.
