Logan Payne Co CHICAGO NEW YORK BOSTON T(ie Gold Star Mothers Just as Burleigh county’s new World war memorial building is a fitting tribute by the citizens of the coun ty to the men who served in the World war, so were the ceremonies incident to the laying of the cornerstone of the building a fitting tribute to those who died in the service and in whose honor the building is being erected. Those men who lie in hallowed graves would have liked nothing better than that the mothers who gave them to their nation’s service should be honored in their places. The recognition accorded to the Gold Star mothers by the request that they be the ones to lay the cornerstone was based upon one of the most poignant memories com mon to the men who served in the war. That is the recollection of the final leave-taking of the folks at home. The turning of the face toward a fu ture which, for the sons of Burleigh county’s 10 Gold Star mothers, ended in death at the front. But every man who served, whether or not he ever heard the roar of an enemy gun or felt the thrust of enemy steel, experienced a wrench at the heart strings as he laid down the duties of the civilian to assume those of the soldier. Members of the Legion knew, too, of the hours of watchfulness and wakefulness, the sleepless nights, the longing hope, the terrible fear which beset the mothers of America as the war progressed. There were some mothers who, by an heroic effort of the will, managed to send their sons away with a smile. If they did so, their soldier sons were proud of them be cause, instinctively, they knew that the smile hid the tears* which only mother love can know. Still other mothers were unable to suppress the evi dences of their grief and their sons left home with the sobs of the person most dear to them in all the world ringing in their ears. Yes. There was something more than a courtesy in the recognition accorded the Gold Star mothers and the war mothers, who also had places of honor at the cere mony. There was recognition of the misery which war brings and of the grief of all the mothers of America as their sons marched Jauntily into the champing jaws of war. The cornerstone laying was a solemn ceremony. For the brief period of an hour the minds of those present turned backward the pages of time. The presence of those nine women who had given their sons gave new incentive to the desire for a lasting peace. Philadelphia Talks of Being Managed Philadelphia is the city which is supposed to be both corrupt and contented. An epigram coined by Lincoln Steffens in the old days of muck-raking fixed that con ception of the Quaker city in the minds of the country. Those who know the real Philadelphia have known all the time that the Steffens bit of epigram was not a statement of fact, but a catchy figure of speech to sell magazines dealing at the time in muck—the magnified and exaggerated faults and weaknesses and bad politics of the day in which Steffens analyzed civic conditions in Philadelphia. From the extent to # which Philadelphia was given to politics not for its own good or Its moral standing, the city now is considering a sharp turn to an opposite course. It is weighing a proposal to adopt the manager form of city government. A committee has launched a campaign to obtain a charter conferring the manager form of administration on the third big municipality of the nation. The famous old Bullitt charter, which was considered to be the most perfect thing in its line from the time of its adoption back about the 80's, has lost prestige because it was designed for a day when the city was divided polit ically into two rival camps, Republican and Democratic. While the Republicans were in the majority, it was pos sible at times for the Democrats to win elections. This tended to steady the conduct of whatever party was in power. Gradually that regrettable situation developed when there was no longer a minority opposition that wielded any influence or capacity. The Democrats dwindled to BP.OOO about 1005. Ten years later they had fallen to 11,000. The one congressional district they were able to control finally slipped out of their grasp. The day came just before the United States got into the war when the last Democratic ward in the city turned Republican. Philadelphia was no longer bitted or bridled. As the strength of the Philadelphia Democracy waned, the topheavy Republican organization became a com bination of antagonistic factions. One was dubbed “the Gang,” the other was composed of reformers, usually in the minority and voting under party titles coined special ly for each succeeding election. Out of this situation grew those conditions which formed the basis of the charge that the city was corrupt. The lopsidedness po litically has persisted. Not so much corruption as dis content developed Now comes the proposal to apply to the legislature for manager form of government. Leading citizens see in the proposed change a means to govern Philadelphia aa a business. Politics have not been able to accomplish that. The charter committee’s statement asserts that one goal is reduced taxation and another the elimination of officeholders from sinecure jobs that merely pad the municipal pay roll. Like other American cities, Phil adelphia has been operated on the deficit method of financing administration and improvement. Owing to its size and its prestige as the third great city of the country, along with its traditions as the cradle of American independence, the action of Philadel phia in this matter will be watched with keen interest in other parts of the country—especially as political and administrative conditions in the two cities which exceed it in size. New York and Chicago, are both sordid as the result of gang grips on the municipal governments and [threaten to bleed the cities white from overwhelming in V • debtedness. The fight in Philadephia will be the old battle of the “gang" and the reformers over again. It Is not conceivable that the machine will give up its hold without a bitter struggle. Mayor Harry Mackey, the present executive, has played bofh sides heretofore and he could do a lot to swing the referendum either way. If Philadelphia goes in for managerial government it will be interesting to see whether the effacement of unani mous party politics will bring the city real improvement by transferring that unanimity to the basis of business ad ministration. In Cleveland the much touted reform proved to be mere camouflage, while the power of boss rule persisted unabated. Cruelty to Animals The stories of dogs who lay shivering in the rain, or crying plaintively under the stars, hugging the slim green mound which held one whom they idolized, took up a good many pages in the old school reading books. Chil dren read them, learning not only the pronunciation of words, but the meaning of loyalty. And dogs arc really loyal—more than one has given his life for his master. We wonder if the man in a distant city who prepared a terrible punishment for a dog the other day didn’t know this. Apparently he didn't. He kept on, throwing more and more dirt into a hole where he had placed the little ani mal. He packed It harder and harder, until finally the dog was covered, and he couldn't see the eyes. Just the nose was left above the ground. Then the man went away. Neighbors, hearing the dogs cries, came, found the nose, and dug the animal out. The dog had been digging holes in his yard, the owner explained. He had cured other puppies of this habit by burying them in the ground for a time, noses exposed so they could breathe. He was merely trying the same method of punishment and training with this puppy. It is a little hard to realize that there arc people in the world who still viciously inflict suffering on animals. But occasionally we have to wonder if there aren’t some people who might profit a little by a few hours of say, burial with merely their noses exposed. To Spank, or Not t<J Spank? Acting on the impulse, the most natural thing for his dad to do would be to give Billy Jeavons a spanking, but we don’t think we would favor that at all. Billy—ln case you have forgotten—is the 11-year-old Cleveland youngster who stowed away In a big passenger plane bound for Detroit. Puzzled by the unwieldiness of his ship, the pilot landed on Lake Erie to investigate and discovered Billy hidden in the tall. They couldn’t very well drop Billy out in the middle of the lake, so the pilot put him in the cabin with the passengers and carried him on to Detroit, returning him next day. It would be pretty hard* for us to spank Billy for what he did, even though he was foolhardy. For he’s shown himself as a boy with plenty of courage—not a namby pamby sort of kid, but one who probably is going to be a real man with plenty of nerve and courage when he grows up and tackles the problems of the world. Yes, we are glad it was Billy’s dad—not us—who had to make that momentous decision as to whether to spank or not to spank. Editorial Comment Gasoline Pipe Lines .

The potentialities of this daring new method of selling gasoline are alluring enough to satisfy even the most imaginative wildcatter. It is esti mated that the market which parallels one transcon tinental highway consumes five times more gasoline than the projected line can carry. Whatever the outcome, the gasoline long-distance pipc iine is here. It will point many a merchandising moral for the benefit of economists who will see in it an ideal method of reducing the high cost of retailing bulk com modities; it will do away with expensive storage tanks now required by every filling station to hold a two days’ supply of gasoline; it may lead to the Junking of 275,000 railroad tank-cars; and it will probably present many a knotty problem for the Interstate Commerce Commission. It is not quite evident what is to become of refineries long settled In markets hundreds of miles from the oil fields. It is manifestly absurd to pump crude petroleum half way across the continent only to pump gasoline back through another line laid at great expense. To transfer the refineries to the fields is a solution of the problem that will be accepted only after further experimentation. More and more unused crude-oil lines will at first be come conveyors of gasoline. One California company is said to have written off the cost of its gasoline line in a single year of greatly reduced evaporation losses. Equally alluring is the fact that every drop in a gasoline line can be sold to wayside customers, whereas crude oil must first be piped to a refinery before it becomes of any use to an automobile driver. By no flight of the Imagina tion was it possible a generation ago to foresee that a vast country would be threaded with pipes to supply fuel to automobiles so cheap that every fifth American could afford to own one. Our Population (Minneapolis Tribune) The census report to the effect that there are 123,000,000 persons in the United States and the further report of economists that the population of the civilized world has reached a point where deaths just about equal births, afford opportunity for many and diverse speculations. The predictions of the Rev. Mr. Malthus are bound to intrude. At first glance Mr. Malthus was egregiously wrong with his theory that population would outrun production and that the human race would wind up in starvation after an exciting period of cannibalism. The human race has managed to produce food much faster than it has produced human beings. In fact, there is from the commercial viewpoint an overproduc tion of food in the world today. Here and there the world oyer humans are grumbling because there is too much wheat or too much meat. On top of this, population in civilized countries, Russia excepted, has reached a stage of stasis. Nationally we in the United States are not as anxious for population growth as we were a few years ago. As the result of debatable economic reasoning and silly nordic sentimen tality we have drastically restricted our immigration. As a result wages are kept up and consumption of faVin products is kept down. We still like to see our cities grow but for the country as a whole 123,000,000 persons is enough. The reason for all this is not to be found in the Mal thusian doctrine of insufficient food. Nevertheless there is more than a glimmer of truth in the Malthus fore* bodings. We have plenty of food no doubt but we are no longer satisfied by the mere filling of our stomachs. We have what we rhetorically c’-‘ -'.ate xs a standard of living, golf clothes, automobiles, radios and whatnot. These are things the reverend Mr. Malthus never dreamed of. but the necessity of having them has taken the place of the necessity of having food which was once a major problem. The maintenance of the standard of living hqs made our former pride in population growth archaic. Even the consideration of persons in the role of consumers is not so attractive as it once was. The big family in this machine age is no longer a commercial asset. Those of us who get into this world are not looking for any more competition. So from certain aspect* Mr. Malthus was right, though he himself would be amazed to see how wrong he was. THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE, THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1930 [ Today Is the I I Anniversary of I On July 31, 1763, James Kent, emi nent American jurist, whose decision in hundreds of law cases are still cited, was born in Philippi, N. Y., the son of a noted lawyer. Graduating from Yale at the age of 18, Kent was admitted to the bar four years later. After he had been several times elected to the New York Assembly the young lawyer removed to New York to fill the new profes sorship of law at Columbia college. With the recognition accorded him by Hamilton, Jay and other* leaders In the Federalist party, Kent rapidly advanced as a judicial officer. From chief justice in the state supreme court Kent was appointed chancellor, then the highest judicial office in the ‘ state.

NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER XXIII /"MDEON greeted Judy with his usual deference, playfully re ! marking that Cuarvcnius must be a slave driver, and that she ought to escape from him now f and then. * “I am escaping from him, Mr. Punch,” Judy replied. “I’m going to Paris soon.” This was news to him. He seemed pleased, and hoped he might he there at the same time to show her the sights. He often ran over to Paris, ho said. Stornaway said he would paint no more that day, and they had tea. Judy poured It, sitting on the couch with her feet on the white polar bear, and remembering how she had sat on it and overheard the two men discussing her. She was sparkling with high spirits, as gay as a lark, and making the men rock with her cheap witticisms and quaint expressions. Gideon left the house with her. She allowed him to walk with her to the corner, where she waited for the bus. “When shall I see you again, Miss Judy?” he asked. “What about tomorrow? I’m busy all day, but will you dine with me?” “With pleasure, Mr. Funcb," she said. There was something pensive and almost shy in her smile, but she was full of inward laughter. She saw the look in his eyes—the old covetous look. His lips were moist as he smiled. He supposed that she had felt neglected because he had not sought her out, and that ehe would now be easier to manage. He thought he had scored the first point in the game. But Judy knew otherwise. • • t TT was the last week in July. New -York was swpltering in a pecu liarly trying moist heat. The sky seemed to be almost over one’s head, and to consist of several lay ers of blankets steeped in boiling water. The air was a grayish yel low. and felt exactly like the hot room of a Turkish bath. Bruce Gideon was In town, and was entertaining his sister at luncheon.

Madame de Toros looked quite cool. She was one of those people w r ho, though full of energy, never hurry. They had finished luncheon, and Madame de Toros was drinking her coffee and smoking a thin Russian cigaret. She had been questioning her brother about Jbis plans, and had learned that he was going to Vichy for his annual cure, but hot until the middle of August. Though he showed his Spanish descent less than his sister, Gideon had certain foreign traits in his na ture. One of these was the fact that ho preferred to keep himself in health by drinking waters and diet ing, rather than by indulging in any strenuous form of sport. For all that, he was an excellent shot and a first-rate swordsman, in spite of his bulk. “You will be late (or your cure, my dear Bruce," his sister said, “but you’re not looking as it you need it much.” “I’m perfectly lit,” be answered carelessly; “but one must go some* where. The last half of September I shall spend in Venice, as usual. It’s too hot for most of you people, but for me it's the ideal time of year.” Madame de Toros carefully extin guished her cigaret. She took a sip from her liqueur glass, looking rather hard at her brother with her bold, humorous, utterly sophisti cated eyes. “Bruce,” she said suddenly, “who is this little girl you are always aty)ut with?” • • • /GIDEON did not hesitate In his reply. “A little model from Greenwich Village, my dear Thirza. Does It interest you?” “I am wondering why you taka her to the places you do,” she went on. “I have seen you myself ser eral times.” “Why shouldn’t I?” ha asked, with a low laugh. “It has not been your hkblt—that Is all. These are places where you meet your friends. And Manuel saw you with her in the hotels and at all the very smart places.” Manuel was Madame de Toro’s husband. “Well?” asked Gideon, his small eyes meeting his sister’s, with an expression of amusement. “I was only asking,” she said, shrugging her shoulders. She and her brother had always been good comrades. She had no fear of offending him. “Miss Grant,” he said, “is a rather remarkable little person.” “I take It she must be, to* interest you,” sister answered. “But re majkable in what way?” “She is going to be a dancer.

Miss Grant is very in teresting and very—difficult.” “Ah! Not easy to manage, you mean?” It was Gideon’s turn to shrug his shoulders now. “For the moment, she is wrapped up in her career.” His sister smiled. “It has always puzzled me,” she said, “why you have never turned your attention to the girls who would be attracted by you, or to the women of your own set, who value brains, knowledge of the world, and good taste, and to whom life is a line art Why do you waste yourself on these little vulgarians? Think of Ailsa Davenne—what she cost you, and how nearly she ruined your life!” Gideon was suddenly roused. His pale face hardened Into a mask; his forehead looked ghastly under its band of thick black hair. “I will pray you, my dear Thirza,” he said, “not to mention that name in the same breath as Miss Grant’s. And as for the wo men you speak of, they bore me to distraction. All they want is money, and freedom to pdrsue their own particular form of self-in dulgence. As you know perfectly well, I am attractive to no woman —for myself alone.” His laugh rang through the room, silky but uncertain, sugges tive of an immense edifice of pride built upon m shaky foundation. “You are ridiculous, Bruce,” his sister said rather sharply. “Now adays even women do not need to be good looking in order to be at tractive. Why shpuld men?” He did not reply. A moment later he was summoned to the tele phone. • • • TTTTHEN he came back to the little W dining room, his sister was drawing on her loves. “Are you entertaining in Venice in September?” she asked him casually. “I don’t think so,” he answered after a second's hesitation; “but it you and Manuel and the boys want to come, I shall be delighted.” She eyed' him with a knowing smile as she went out of the room. “I'll give you plenty of notice before we come,” she said signifi cantly. He accompanied her to the front door and saw her into the elevator. Then he stood looking down after her with a frown on his heavy brows and an ominous droop at the corners of his ill-natured mouth.

The time spent in understanding and practicing the habits of health at this particular age not only prolongs the golden period of middle life, but acts to prevent a bedridden old age. During middle age the poor habits of living which have been carried on for years begin to take their toll. Little mistakes in eating begin to cause indigestion. Slight over-fatigue begins to bring on headaches. The patient becomes aware that his bodily forces are not being renewed as in youth. / One of the worst features of middle age is the constipation which so often accompanies it. Due to years of wrong diet, without enough .roughage, and to the flabby abdominal muscles, which are the result of lndpor work of today, the colon, after forty is, in most people, not able to perform its full work of elimination. High blood pressure and arterial hardening are also common hasards at this time. Patients with high blood pressure complain of pressure in the head, ringing in the ears, and inability to sleep. When the arteries become hardened and thickened, they do not carry the blood freely to the various organs, and in severe cases these blood vessels may even give way and cause hemorrhages. By keeping the blood pressure down and keeping the arteries flexible, many serious attacks of apoplexy could be avoided. Heart trouble, kidney trou ble and rheumatism are other disor ders which should be guarded against during middle age. The gradual decline in physicial strength after forty is due. to a large extent, to changes in the ductless glands. Suddenly taking on weight, or becoming thin and wrinkled, after forty, are signs of harmful changes taking place in some of these glands. One of the best methods for improv ing the condition of the glands is to take short fasts, as this tends to nor malize their section. Sir Arbuth not Lane, the noted English physi cian, says. *An occasional fast is beneficial for the middle aged, and especially if there is a tendency to obesity.” Women have learned to fear this period of life. However, nearly all of their troubles might be avoided if the proper dietetic and hygiene rules were followed. Almost every one of this age has some degree of prolapsus It happened that a domestic hitch prevented the Toros family from starting for Europe on the follow ing day. They were obliged to spend another couple of nights in their New York house, though it was practically shut up. On the morning after her lunch eon with her brother, Madame de Toros was rung up by Vincent Stornaway, who told her that be had been asked to send her portrait to an international exhibition in Madrid, and he wanted her con sent. “I will come and'have another look at it,” ehe told him. The portrait was still in his studio, awaiting final touches. “I’ve for gotten what it looks , like. If it's not too ugly, you can send it to Madrid, it you like.” She made an appointment with him, but was unable to keep it on time; but ehe went, on chance, about two hours later. She found Stornaway out, and his studio tenanted by a little person in rather startling clothes, whom she at once recognized as the girl she had seen with her brother. She was glad of the opportunity of judging Judy Grant for herself. She smiled with her pleasant self assurance as she advanced into the great room. Judy was a little gaudier even than usual. She wore a dress made of a Homan silk scarf, with wide stripes of turquoise, rose, black, yellow, and green, hardly any Reeves, and a low-cut neck. At close quarters, Madame de Toros was struck by the girl’s wonderful pansy eyes and the glorious light in her red-gold hair. She was still more impressed by the flower-like quality of the little face and its ex pressive innocence, in such start ling contrast to the garishness of Judy’s general appearance. It wgs the face of a child, thought the woman of the world—so truthful, so candid, so. utterly lacking in guile.. “Is Mr. storngway painting you. Miss Grant?” “I am' sitting as a model. That’s my trade, you know. I have to live while I’m working at my dancing. It was through Mr. Stornaway that I met Mr. Gideon.” Madame de Toros could make nothing out of it. "Are you expecting Mr. Storna way?” she asked. “He should be here directly. My appointment was for about a quar ter of an hour ago.” Stornaway came In just then, and Judy slipped lnto.|he model’s dress ing room. Madame de Toros in spected her portrait and told the artist that he could send it to Madrid to be exhibited, if he liked. “I suppose it’s what you call strong,” she said with a grimace. “It’s, certainly ugly!” She did not see Judy sgaiq. She went away more disturbed than be fore. Either the girl was very deep, or she was a specimen of her sex that eould only be described as unique. • (To Be Continued) f» Intestine, further hampering its Or.

The chemical result is that toxic material finds its way into the blood stream and the body thus poisons itself. After forty you should cut down on the starches and meats and use more fresh vegetables, raw salads and fruits. More systematic exercise is needed after forty. The body rusts ' out more quickly than it wears out. and regular exercises and the right diet will keep it flexible and ward off the rusting process. Mental exercise is just as import ant as physical exercise. A man or woman makes a great mistake who tries to retire from active mental work. Proper mental activities with out undue strain promote happiness at this time of life. Your accumula tion of knowledge and experience should enable you to enjoy the ma turer years of your life if you will make the effort to preserve your health. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Correct Blood Pressure Question: R. J. asks: “What, as s rule, is the correct blood pressure ol a man 68 years old in good health and spirits? Mine is 160 systolic anc 100 diastolic. Many thanks for your information and advice.” Answer: The systolic blood pressuri should range between 118 and 13i millimeters at any adult age, but per haps 145 millimeters would not be toe high If you have a tendency to high blood pressure. Your present blood pressure is certainly too high but can be easily reduced through living on a careful diet. ' Packing Lunches Question: O. J. asks: “Will you kindly give me a few suggestions as to what would make a whoiesome and nourishing lunch to be carried to work? Up to the present my lunch has consisted of bread and meat or jam sandwiches. I am quite aware how faulty that is considered, so would appreciate your help very much.” Answer: You can put up a good lunch with real wholewheat bread sandwiches, and also add some non starchy vegetables which can be kept warm in a thermos bottle. Be sure tc get the real wholewhat bread. At lunchtime the sandwiches may be freshly buttered, and peanut butter or lettuce added. Such cooked veg etables as the following may be used in the thermos bottle: spinach, as paragus. string beans, squash, celery. In addition, add to the lunch some fresh raw salad vegetables such as lettuce or celery, wrapped in a damp cloth which will keep them crisp un til noon. I will be glad to send you an article on the subject of packing lunches if you will send me \ large self-addressed stamped envelope. (Copyright, 1930, by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.)
