Whatever the Bible was, the Bible is. And what it is it has always been. It is not men's thoughts about the Bible that judge it. It is the Bible that judges men and their thoughts. It has nothing to fear but ignor ance and neglect. And the Church need no other fear on its account. The Bible will take care of itself if the Church will distribute it and get it read. Robert E. Speer. Ship-Building to Pick Up The decision to reopen five “dormant” ship yards to speed up America’s defense is a wise and helpful step. Although the announcement, made by William S. Knudson of the defense commission, indicates that yards now consid ered for rehabilitation are on the Gulf and the Pacific coasts, the fact that a start has been made to bring an essential industry more near ly to par is encouraging. It stimulates hope that as the defense pro gram progresses the administration will turn to the south Atlantic coast for further expan sion of the nation’s ship-building facilities, and discover that Wilmington is both advantageous ly located for the production of vessels and al ready has the skeleton of a plant which could be restored without great expense or much loss of time. Should the defense program reach greater proportions, as a result of further Nazi victor ies in Europe, and the demand for merchant W well as fighting ships increase to the extent of making new and larger shipyards an essen tial step, Wilmington would still be in a posi tion to demand consideration. The Cape Fear river from above Wilmington to its mouth is unmatched in availability for this industry. Any area on either shore would serve the pur pose both for convenience of construction and easy accessibility for delivery of materials. A shipbuilding plant is only one of the sev eral projects in which Wilmington could ren der valuable service to the nation in rearma ment, but it is not the least of them. It should not be lost sight of in the effort to promote oth ers. German Air Raids The steady intensification of German bomb ing attacks on England during the last few days may mean that the threatened invasior is on the way—or they may mean that Hitler has decided only on one last concentrated ef fort to make good his counter-blockade. There is no way of basing a definite prophecy on whal is happening now. Nevertheless it is significant that many ol these raids have been directed at British ship , ping along the southeast coast of England and ' in the channel. This is proof that up to now the British are still using those waters. As long as they are able to keep merchant ships ^ there, directly under the wings of German r planes, the chances of an immediate invasion ^ would seem to be small. c This is so because the bulk of a German in- t i vading force must be transported by sea. Air . transport can carry small striking forces, but r these must be backed up by larger bodies of , men equipped with at least fairly heavy artil- r lery. Moreover, these troops must be sup- j i plied. Airplanes are not adequate for this pur 1 pose. t | Thus we are seeing another and larger ver- ^ sion of the Battle of Norway. That was a strug- ; gle between air power and sea power, though ^ the Germans backed their airplanes with ships g and the British navy had some help from the s Royal Air Force. Now again the two are dis- s puting for mastery. This time, however, Ger- j, man airpower cannot count on the same meas- s ure of support, while British ships have air- a planes at their back. c The issue, then, is much more clear-cut than ^ it was in the Norwegian affair. For that very s reason, Hitler may well defer his final thrust until he is more certain than at present that r his bombers can more than offset the power of t the British navy. t - r Carol s Crown Heavy 8 _ r Deportation of foreign families, the heads of r which control large petroleum interests in Ru c mania, represents a desperate attempt on King ^ Carol’s part to strengthen his standing with c Nazi Germany. When the war started Carol’s f affections were centered in Great Britain and - to a lesser extent in France. It appeared at that time that an alliance with the democratic Allies was Rumania’s best bet. But France collapsed and Britain was endangered by the rapidly moving German war juggernaut, and j Carol’s affections swung to Germany. This fickleness is easily understood. Rumania * is a small country, rich in resources but un- j. able to stand alone. She must have a prop to t lean on, and naturally uses the strongest one r she can find. Havipg turned for succor to Ber- c c lin, she dare not now do anything to give of- ^ fense to the Nazis, but must excel all previous h wooing to convince Hitler that she is in deadly k earnest when she promises to be faithful and ^ J* true. Especially is it necessary for King Carol • to cultivate the good will of the German n fuehrer since Russia 'seized Bessarabia and suggested that sovietization would be quite v the proper caper for Carol to cut at this time. 0 With the purpose of demonstrating undying love for and service in the Nazi cause, and possibly at Hitler’s instigation, the Nazified e government which Carol has set up in his realm has run French and British oil tycoons ^ out of the country and ordered others deported s as a preliminary step in turning over to the n Hitler armed forces the output of their oil a C' wells and the confiscation of their properties. One petroleum company, the $15,000,000 Astra- p Romana corporation, built up and developed with British capital, has already been taken w over. Other seizures are to follow. The prob- d ability is that unless Stalin decides to call a s halt in the proceedings, which he is in excel- tl lent position to do, Germany will soon acquire i< the bulk of Rumania’s oil supply for use in the a forthcoming Battle of England. Rumania, of course, may expect to receive a pat on the shoulder from the fuehrer for its sagacity in choosing the easiest way. Carol might even n get an iron cross. f" . is This, of course, if Hitler wins the Battle of tl England. But what if the British refuse to be P conquered? What if they turn the tables and A defeat the Germans, or prolong the war to “ such extent that Germany and all the countries e] now dependent upon Hitler for existence will tl be glad to return to peace on British terms? How will Rumania fare then? England cer tainly will require Carol and his people to c make restitution and compensate British in- d terests for the losses seizure of their proper- t( ties has entailed. Heavy indeed is the head that wears a r, crown. But it is hardly possible to estimate _ the weight that is bearing down on Carol’s brow. Legion on the Job It is the men of the American Legion upon whom we must depend to spur us to thought r and action, not for war, but for the preserva- t. tion of those principles of liberty and independ- v ence for which they fought—and are still fight ing—but which so many accept as a matter of v course, and fail to appreciate because they are 1 handed out on a silver platter, so to speak. e There are a great many persons who nqver ^ stop to count the cost of a great many priv- n ileges they enjoy and which they accept as tl their inalienable right. The men of the legion ' VlOlTA il__A 1_ n . t. --- W'V UV-V.UUOV, MICJ . Wvll L through hellfire to pay for them. As so often happens from that kind of serv- o ice, there is in the hearts of the legionnaires e an intense love of country, based upon a con- ^ ception of what really constitutes America, j and upon experience of what may and easily could destroy all principles and reduce this country to 'vassalage. We venture to believe i that these same legionnaires know full well t that it ii the fate of the indolent to see their rights become the prey of those who would de- y stroy freedom and independence. \ We cannot preserve liberty without vigilancf 1 —vigilance against an indolent acceptance ol f privileges and against enemies from within or f without. Thus we believe that the nucleus of \ our home defensfe must be the men of the j American Legion—men who not only believe C in America but have fought for it. Thus we place our trust in the program the Wilmington ^ legionaires have drafted for our security. c Air-Conditioned Beds Something ought to be done about the man /ho chose this particular period of time to an ounce the perfection of an air-conditioned ed. It is aggravating enough to thresh about n the mattress these hot nights, to listen to ne clock strike 3 when you ought to be snor mg Sweetly. But to tell us now about an auto matically refrigerated bed is like showing an lluring picture of a pitcher of ice water to a man who is dying of thirst in the Sahara. It jst isn’t fair. In sheer self-protection we like to feel that mere is something wrong about this dream. It mst can’t be possible that there are beds with istruments at the head where you can dial me weather as you please just like a radio pro ram. There must be something annoying bout the way cool air seeps up through the (meets. The air mattress which the bed uses 1 ; probably mmncomfortable. Or, we say to our- ' slves, we should probably lie awake all night • nyway desperately dialing because we ouldn’t find just exactly the right temperature 1 etween hot and cold conducive to restful ■ leep. However, after mustering all of these argu ments we are sadly forced to conclude that me inventor probably has something there, mat we would take an air-conditioned bed in a minute if somebody offered us one, and that nything would be better than what we have ow. All that we wish is that the subject had ever been brought up. After all, we haven’t n air-conditioned bed, we haven’t any hope or hance of getting one, and we are going to ave to get along this summer as oest we can. o let’s just forget about the whole thing until ill. We’re sorry we brought it up. Editorial Comments From Other Angles LOOK OUT MR. GALLUP Charlestown (W. Va.,) Gazette Just recently the Gallup poll announced the esult of the first survey of the comparative trength of President Roosevelt and Mr. Will ie. This poll was taken before the president ad made his great statement about prepared ess and not involving our country in the Eur pean war. It was taken before he was the andidate of his party. It was taken when Mr. /illkie was at the peak of his popularity and is picturesqueness—just after he had blitz rieged the Republican convention at Phila elphia. And the Gallup poll announced the ;sult as follows: “Roosevelt and Willkie found running almost eck-and-neck in early test of strength.” The figures showed that if “President Roose elt runs against Wendell Willkie” the vote as E that day would have been: elt runs against Wendell Willkie” the vote as E that day would have been: Roosevelt . 53 per cent Willkie.. 47 percent “Neck-and-neck.” Six percent points differ nce. Mr. Gallup and his assistants neglect j i state that in an election of 40,000,000 votes ; lat six points would mean a tremendous num- < er of votes majority. And it neglected to j :ate that if a candidate were to receive as ^ uch as 55 percent of the popular vote it would , mount to a landslide. And they neglected to ate that Mr. Roosevelt before his nomination ] as not far from having a vote of landslide j roportions in his grasp. , But something a great deal more significant J as omitted, whether by accident or design we . j not know. Dr. Gallup and his associates elected to state that they had conducted a j milar poll in 1936. They neglected to state , lat on July 12, 1936, they polled “public opin- ■ n” on the relative strength of Mr. Roosevelt id Mr. Landon. And the result was as fol ws, just four years ago:* ' Roosevelt. 51.8 percent Landon. 48.2 percent In other words the most recent Gallup poll jglected to state that four years ago Mr. andon was in a good deal better position than s Mr. Willkie today. He was much closer to i le president in popular approval than the < resent-day “wizard-leader” of the G. O. P. 1 nd yet with all of that betterment of position i 1936 the Republican candidate, Mr. Landon, c irried just two small states in the national i ection. When the final votes were tabulated i le voting showed as follows: i Roosevelt. 60 percent S Landon. 37 percent The Republican leaders may take whatever ( jmfort they can out of the Gallup poll. We r Dubt if a close analysis of it will bring them i i win an election in a poll and another to win i in the ballot boxes in November.

( It will be that long, in other words, before an j ccurate count can be made of the hearts J ounded in the process of executing the draft, he whole foundation on which the draft was J reeled was the knowledge that the President ouldn’t want it, or get much good out of it, if le getting involved sending any substantial umber of delegates home sore. About 200 of ! le nearly 1100 delegates—about 18 per cent— . fere pledged to other candidates. Obviously J le party couldn’t afford to begin a campaign ‘ ■ith that fraction of its strength out of action. ‘ There were three groups which stood to be 1 ffended: the ones headed by Postmaster Gen- ' ral Farley, Vice-President Garner and Sena ir Wheeler. 1ESIGNED TO LOSS * 'F GARNERITES , From the beginning, the New Dealers figured n losing the love of the bulk of the Garnerites. < t was the other two groups (and their leaders) ( rey didn’t want to send home mad. ’ i The necessary gesture toward the Wheeler l orces was made when the President promised < .merican boys wouldn’t be sent to Europe’s j fars. About the same time, it became evident \ ibor generally wouldn’t follow Wheeler away i mm the New Deal. t So the problem was to find some way of ef- j feting the draft without driving away Farley, v fheeler, and the men who felt as they did. ; [ARMONY TICKET t VERTURES MADE For a time it seemed this just couldn’t be 1 one.

You feel that after read ng Americana like “Frontiers of he Northwest” by Harold E. 3riggs (D. Appleton-Century: $5). Briggs is professor of history at he University of Miami in Florida, rogether with such men as Dick, Sister, Vestal, he is performing a 'c'l service these days in recreat ng the spirit and the times and the ives that have made the nation. In “Frontiers of the Northwest’ 3riggs tells the story of the Upper Missouri Valley, comprising North md South Dakota, Montana, Wyo ning and the overlapping portions >f Idaho and Colorado. You will >0 far for a more varied, more Iramatic chapter in American his ory. Here is the saga of the buffalo lunter, the miner and the home iteader all rolled into one. Mr. 3riggs begins with those incredibly ree and wild days before the Civil Var when buffalo by the thousands hundered across the great plains md he ends with the final era of nodern agricultural settlement. In letween, he has caught the full frama of Virginia City and Helena md the Black Hills Gold Rush, of ;he long trail from Texas and the wvHpv nf the cattle barms. Appropriately, the author has di vided his book into six “frontiers,” whence its name; the frontiers of the miner, buffalo, cattleman, sheepman, settlement and agricul tural. The result is a volume easy to read, clear - cut, exceptionally valuable for reference. It is in many respects a perfect companion volume for Dick’s "Sod House Frontier,” published by Appleton Century two years ago and tracing the history of Kansas, Nebraska and the Dakotas. Whether he’s writing about the Union Pacific railroad boom, the Johnson county cattle war or the frontier whisky consumption, Mr. Briggs provides good reading and some good humor. There is, for instance, the story of the Colorado goldfields “grocer” who ran his ‘istore” in a tent. A stranger, dis covering the proprietor sleeping aetween two whisky barrels, woke lim up, inquired what staples he lad in stock. “Stranger,” said the “grocer,” T have sardines, pickled oysters, smoking tobacco and some of the lest whisky you ever seen.” 1 kr vii n /• _ v. t. jooiess Dements Exceed 14 Millions State jobless benefits in the 32 nonths of payments from January, 938, through June, 1940, totaled 14,903,248.27, the Wilmington em iloyment service division office of he unemployment compensation ommission, reported yesterday.

She’ll be with mu again, and soon, in “There’s Magic in Music.” Also you’ll notice that she’s jrowiijg up—and out—and prettier, susanna Foster hoots any such mmpliments, but that’s no sign >he isn’t hungry for them. She bught to be. There have been times n the past year or so when even he the Paramount publicity de partment strained itself to find a ’ood word for the impudent kid with the precocious larynx. Today I got on the set just in ;ime to hear Producer-Director An irew Stone say, “Okay, Susie— ve’re ready when you car scrape hat ice cream off your face.” And Susie snarled “Oh—on my 'ace, huh?” and waved me into ier dressing room. Talking at the -ate of a radio announcer, she put bn a new mouth and re-jiggered an eyebrow and sprinted out for a scene. This was her introduction :o a music camp at anterlochen. \s a tough kid from burlesque, and with a chip on her shoulder, Medical Care SY LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. “They poison me, but the guides ion’t mind them at all. All the leas and mosquitoes in our neigh lorhood concentrate on me and lever bite my wife. My wife at racts fleas only, while I am eaten ilive by mosquitoes and do hot iver remember having had a flea >ite.” Is there any scientific basis for hese inaccurate observations? Yes -yes, indeed—they are not inac urate. They are perfectly true. Ind the subject has been studied vith all the ardour which medical nvestigators bring to more serious ind consequential matters. It has wen been given a five syllable lame: if you are sensitive to mos [uitoes, bees, wasps or fleas you lave “entomogenous allergy.’’ Sometimes insect bites really are erious—even to death. Dr. Meuse elates the story of a vigorous nan who was stung on the septum if the nose by a bee. Supported iy a friend, he walked to his house i few yards away and lay down. He ose immediately to go to the well, tepped a few paces, fell and ex lired. It was thirty minutes from he time of the sting to the man’s LCd III. Skeeters As Bad A woman—the history is relat d by Dr. Vaughn of Richmond— /as stung just once by a bee. She ollapsed before she could* reach re dining room. A physician who /as called found her shocked and ulseless. She was revived by the se of adrenalin. She had had two revious experiences. Mosquitoes may be almost as ad. An American woman went to Canada and reacted to mosquito ites so that her whole .face was wollen, the eyes closed, and the rms swollen to twice their ordi ary size. Extract Helps An extract of mosquito "poison” iluted and injected In small, in reasing amounts will reduce this Jnsitiveness to nil. That's what rppens to the guides. The mos ritoes themselves give the guides she meets a flock of other musical prodigies. Her opening line as she slams a door behind her is, ‘‘What a dump!” From ther on, she raises Cai about getting an upper bunk, sarcastically notes the ab sence of stripes on the camp uni form, and abbreviates a lecture on the honor and spirit of Interlochen with a vaudevillistic ‘‘Ta—dah-h-h” finale. Two years ago, it would have been acting. Little Miss Foster was a sort of tough customer who suspected the motives of every body and spoke her opinions on everything from the amount of sal ary she got to the amount of dra matic ability of many of Holly wood’s pet stars. It is only partly through consideration for Miss Foster that I pause here; her crit icisms were almos* identical with mine. In some ways, the script paral lels her career: She plays a kid soubrette in burlesque, warbling opera while a strip-teaser sheds clothes behind her. The studio got around the Hays Office by making t" ' disrobing act a Dance of the Seven Veils—whir1- i. Art. The I the treatment—a full course in al lergy immunization. Clewes reports a patient who was so sensitive that gnat bites caused such dropsy and swelling as to keep her in bed for several days. Clewes collected the gnats and made an “extract” of them. After several treatments the lady could lie out near the lake and “be bitten with pleasure.” The reaction of different people to flea bites varies widely. In the San Francisco Bay region, which abounds in fleas, they do not en croach on the rights of most of the local population, but are a source of great misery to new comers until they acquire an im munity. This usually takes sev eral months, and in rare instances is never acquired. With insects which poison by in jecting a fluid under the skin, an extract can be made of the sting ing part of the insect—heads of mosquitoes, tails of bees and wasps —and a solution of the offending ' agent obtained for immunizing pur- ; poses.. ' Questions and Answers M. L. F.—“I would like informa- j tion concerning tuberculosis of the , bone. I have not been able to - find anything about this particu- ! lar form of tuberculosis. Have' there been no studies made of it? Or is it rather unimportant in com- i parison to other forms the disease has taken?” Answer—Tuberculosis of the bone has been the subject of a great many studies and is a very im- t portant subject. Orthopedic sur- ( geons deal with it constantly. It 1 occurs usually in children and af- i fects most often the bones of the 1 spine, of the hip, the knee and the elbow. It may run along for t a long time and be called “rheu- t matism” or ‘‘growing pains.” \ Treatment is by rest, immobiliza- £ tion of the part by braces or casts, and the general treatment of tu- I aerculosis.

Just now she's filling an embarrassing gap between the two big front ones with a sliver of do more harm than good?” Answer—Sponging in high fever; is probably the best method of treatment that we have. It is not necessary, however, to use soda w- ter. Plain, tepid water, of a temperature of about 75 should oe used and during the bath the tem perature can gradually be reduced to 65. The patient should be sponged one limb at a time, then the abdomen and chest in front then the back, keeping the rest of the body covered. The sponge bate should last about 10 minutes. 2 Many Kennedy Home Gifts Acknowledged The Catherine Kennedy home resterday expressed thanks lor tne ollowing donations: Laundry, Ideal and Sunshine regetables, Miss Ida Keyes: nr vood, D.
