HARRY J. WIBLE, Editor and Publisher Members of Illinois Press Association Terms of Subscription One Year s onth----::--:_-_---:--:-_- .............. : Sl.00 Three Months ........ - ............... 50 Thursday June 23, 1932 PENSIONS Out of all of the discussion of veterans&apos; Aidf and bonus proposals , interesting and useful facts have emerged They are worthy, it s4ems to us, of serious study. Take, for example, the fact that in the great war the United States had less than four and a half million men mobilized on both sides of tho Atlantic and had a casu- alty list of only 360,300 killed and wound- ed, but in this year's veterans' relief bill we have appropriated $1,072,064,527. That is 26.1 percent of our total national expenditures for the year. Now contrast those figures with those of the other na- tions that had many times our number of men mobilized and proportionately much lger casualty lists. Ge:'many had 13,- 000,000 men undcx ai'n:.s, Fl'm:ce 8,410,- (Mff Great Britain 6,609,000, and Italy 5,675000. Out of those 33,625,090 en the ea'uatw iists of those four nations, dead d wmnded, amounteo to lti,331,86_, c:" almos"c 0 percent. Those were the people who were hard- est hit by the war, and they might be ex- pected to be carrying a far heavier burden in the way of relief Tot the injured and support of the families of the killed, than we, with our comparatively trifling per- cntage of casualties. But on the con- trary, the total amount provided for pe- ons by all four of those nations combin- ed is smaller than our alone, only $830,077, Veterans' relief constitutes only 5.8 percent of British ixpenditures and only 17.5 percent of the French budget. We have been advised of the activities of the National Economy League, whose slogan f "millions for the war disabled and not one cent for political pensions." Archibald B. Roosevelt is secretary of the National Economy League. Mr. Roose velt was one of the four sons of Theodore Roosevelt who served in the World War. One of his brothers was killed and he himself fs a war casualty. When he, re- pr0senting a group of veterans and other citizens, presents a petition to the Presi- dent and Congress for elimination of ex- penditures for war rans who are not in fact suffering from disabilities incurred in service, and estimates that that would save the taxpayers of the. United States 50,000,000 a year, at least what he says entitled to a respectful hearing. We do not think that any necessary ro- Iief hould be denied to any former sold- ier, sailor or marine who was actually dis- able P I 'l'hc Family Doctor l By John Joseph Gaines, M. D.

I give it on chill-days only, getting' in three doses (which should total at least ten grains), the last doso at least one hour before the expected chill.

The malarial poison will have been conquered. Of course the bowel must be looked after, and the diet kept in the bounds of good, easily-digested food. This outline is for the acute form of malaria, which will not become chronic if properly dealt with. Quinine is a specific for ma- laria. Space forbids discussing tlie "eStivo- autumnal" type.

Not by work, but by repeated revelations of the maner side of human nature. All sorts of unpleasant characteristics come to the: surface under the stress of hard ti:ez.

All this i d.pressing. BUT . . When in lu:::an history has there ever -- "  tir.:e so many million people were acting generously and sympathetically as now? I can name dozens of concerns that have continued to operate at a loss because the owners felt the responsibility to their em- ployes, and other dozens that have fought off any reduction in salaries to the last possible moment and then made the heav- iest cut at the top. I know one large city where twenty- five hundred volunteers have each adopt- ed an equal number of destitute families and carried their members through the winter. I can name a struggling lit- tle college whose unpaid teachars volun- tar-ily asked a ten per cent reduction in salaries in order that certain poor stu- dents might not be compelled to quit. The action of the railroad men and ex- ecutives gave me cheer. It brought back a vivid mmory of a certain Sunday morn- ing when I was seven years old. My father, a clergyman, had never pur- chased a Sunday newspaper. On this par- ticular morning he came down to break- fast looking deeply concerned, and said to Mother: "I fe today that I must know the news before I go into the pulpit." The news that he had felt he must know was about the railroad strike in Chicago wtiere men were killing each other, and Grover Cleveland had ordered out the F(,deral troops. We have made a lot of progress in the intervening years. A wise old professor in my college: used to quote the following verse from the Psalms: "What is man that thou are mind ful of him ? or the son of man that thou visitest him ?" Most people, he said, interpret that to mean, "What does pretty, futile man amount to, that you (God) should give him any thought?" A better interpretation, the professor argued, is this: "What a wonderful crea- ture man must be that even God is mind- ful of him and likes to visit him." We can get almost any view we choose of human nature. Man is just "a little lower than the angels" or just a little hig, her than the beasts. According to how and where we look. Parking Troubles Old Parking troubles are not new. They date back at least as far as 1600, when Charles II issued the following, order: "Wheraa.s the excessive number of hack- ney coaches in the City of London are found to be a common nuisance, the streets and highways being thereby made impassable and dangerous; "We command that no person or per- sons permit or suffer said coaches to stand or remain in any of the streets. "Given to our court at Whitehall the eighteenth day of October, 1660." If we rememb(r rightly there is an old saying that there is nothing new under the sun.

For t'elve weeks adult classes have been faing the issues raised by a study of soe of the characters who lived and some of the events that took place nearly four thousand year ago. Have studied them not on- !y .as Rible History but also as the avmg experience of men and women who inhabited our earth at that time and sought the fellowship With God. ller we have asked our- selves: Wha have these people to teazh us? Hew can we aply their Principles of problem-solving to ar- selves ? How can we improve by their mistakes ? How can we go forward m our day as they went forward in theirs? By such questions we have built up a e.mradeship between and us, between their times and ours, so that they do not seem to be so fay away from s. Joseph with his life struggles, Jaec with his family cas, Abraham with his slendid statesmanship have their modern ty- pes that we easily recognize among i the men whom we know to-day. B cause of this close association bet-i ween heir struggle and ours, they t should be able to'teach  Our que- ! tion now is, What have we learnll from them ? <-, to make it more di- rect, Hve we learned from them! during these twelve weeks? Obviously a lesson is learned when we are able to apnly the principle of iving to the preblenm of life. It is not learned if we know only how -- some one eliza met his ,problems. We' must be able to meet our own be- fore the lesson is learned. To illus- trate: The story of Joseph ad Poti- phar's wife has been told so vividly tbt it is easily remembered. Count- less people can repeat glibly just what Joseph did to resist the tempta-: tion to sexual sire But a Peraon chould not say that he has learned l an from Joseph's expei until he is able ,to aoply Joseph's principles of meeting temPtation to .his own problems of the sex life. l Our temptations may not e to I in the form of a Potiphar's wife. are other forms quite as in-i sidus and sensual.
