A New Tempest
A new tempest has broken upon the country, particu
larly the agricultural regions and political Washington,
in the charge that Soviet Russia, by selling grhin “short”
at Chicago, has helped to break the price of wheat.
Other frhftn what Information was contained in an ex
change between Secretary of Agriculture Hyde and the
president of the Chicago Board of Trade, together with
auch sidelights as were thrown upon the matter by the
statements of various persons, there is little available
in the way of actual fact.
The head of one of the soviet corporations in this
country admitted selling grain short but said it was a
relatively small amount and that the transaction was.
one made in the usual course of business and with no
Intention of driving down the price or hurting the Amer
ican farmer.
Mr. Hyde did not say exactly how the soviet activity
on the grain exchange was injuring the American farm
er, but strongly hinted that, if all the truth were known,
the activity of Russian reds would be found at the
bottom of the low wheat price at present Some per
sons hinted darkly that the whole thing was a plot to
drive down the price of wheat, thereby making the Amer
ican farmer dissatisfied and preparing the way for a
new revolution In this country.
One dislikes to take the side of Soviet Russia in any
argument, especially* one with a member of the presi
dent’s cabinet, but this case does give rise to wonder if
the effect of the Russian activities on the grain market
Is not being gravely overestimated.
It should be easy to ascertain, as long as a fuss is be
ing raised about it, just how extensive these dealings
were. If it turns out that the Russian “sales” of wheat,
which it didn’t have for delivery, were no larger than the
sales of a major grain broker,' who likewise sells wheat
without having it for delivery, Mr. Hyde’s case Is going
to fall pretty flat.
It is too early yet to make a reasonable estimate of
the situation but if it turns out that Mr. Hyde was emit
ting the well-known cry of “wolf, wolf,” and picking on
the Russians because they happen to be in disrepute with
almost everyone, the effect will not be favorable from
Mr. Hyde’s standpoint. The fanners of this country
are not fools and if this furore turns out to be nothing
more nor less than political propaganda, Mr. Hyde had
better seek for himself a sturdy storm shelter.
One item of good may come from the affair, although
it was not emphasised overmuch In news dispatches. It
Is the relation of the Chicago market to grain markets
elsewhere in the world. * Mr. Bunnell, head of the board
of trade, pointed out that a “world” market Is operated
at Chicago. The brokers and traders there are proud
of the fact.
But out here in the northwest, now that it is called
to our attention, one wonders how a “world market” at
Chicago matches up with a 42-cent tariff per bushel on
wheat. If it should develop that Chicago’s “world mar
ket” In any way operates to nullify the effect of the
tariff, it might be a wise thing to curb the ambition of
the Windy City brokers and force them to restrict their
activities to the United Btates.
But &$ yet the whole thing looks to be rather a mess.
The ordinary citizen, including those in North Dakota
who have a vital interest in the grain market and in
grain prices, will reserve judgment on all phases of the
matter until they know more about it.
Coming Home to Rooat
The ins and outs of European politics do not mean a
great deal to the average American, even though 1917
proved that what happens in Europe can have a very
direct and pointed effect on us. However, the results
of the German general election are worth a few min
utes of study.
The most interesting thing about the election was not
the surprising gain in fascist strength in the reichstag,
menacing as that may be to the peace of Europe; nor
Was it the similar increase in communist strength, like
wise a disturbing portent
More interesting than either of these things was a
paragraph in a cable dispatch commenting on the elec
tion. This paragraph read:
“The younger generation, which grew up under priva
tions and suffering of the great war and the blockade
and the post-war inflation period, came out in force.
Persons of 30 or under, disgruntled with the bourgeoise
parties, commonly cast their lot and their votes with the
fascists or the communists.”
There is a good deal to think about in the implications
of that paragraph. It explains things that otherwise
might be puzzling.
The current unrest in Germany may be loaded with
dynamite, both for Germany and her neighbors, but the
cause is not far to seek. The youth of the nation is sim
ply reaching the point where it feels that affairs have
been mlshamyed lor a decade and a half. When youth
gets in that mood anything can happen.
The election indicates, besides, that the cntckern are
romlng home to roost; that a good share of the world’s
•roubles today—much as we might like to believe ottyr
j wise—stem directly from the World war.
| For - and 1918, was busily en
•aged in sowing the wind; and since then, in various
: places, it has been reaping the whirlwind. Russia’s long
affliction with bolshevism, England’s difficulties with
Sadia, France’s hectic search for “security,’’ with its at
tendant militarism, Germany’s crisis hi which fascism
and communism loom up as perilous alternatives—
.{ what; are these things but our heritage from the war?
1 What caused them but the prolonged insanity that be
. That is something that we cannot afford to forget.
Cl fe easy, for instance, to deplore Germany’s restlessness
} m* * heps piously that this restlessness does net event-
ually crack the peace of Europe; but It would be foolish
not to recognise this restlessness as born of the war.
The war, In fact, is not over. Its dire effects will out
live our generation.
War, in more ways than one, is costly and unsettling.
If we are compelled to realize it, It will be good for us.
The Idols of Boyhood
It was impossible for any American brought up in the
old traditions of the national game to keep from feeling
a reminiscent thrill the other day when Boston lined up
two teams of old-time baseball players and put them
through a regulation nine winning game.
The great, almost legendary names of the old days
were there. Cy Young and Joe Wood were among the
pitchers. Honus Wagner, with his bandy legs, was at
shortstop. Ty Cobb, greatest of them all, crouched over
Plate In his old, familiar style. Baseball’s most fam
ous infield, in the persons of Mclnnls, Collins, Barry and
Baker, held a reunion; so (fid its greatest outfield, with
Lewis, Speaker and Hooper coming back to revive old
memories.’ Lou Crlger was there, and Dode Paskert, and
Johnny Evers, and Roger Bresnahan, and Bill Carrigan,
and Hugh Bedient, and Fred Tenney—a regular roll-call
of baseball’s Immortals.
The old-timers themselves undoubtedly had a good
time of it, and the 30,000 Bostonians who gathered to
watch them must have had one too. And, on the whole,
even those of us who didn’t see the game, and had to
take it at second-hand, through the newspapers, can be
glad that the game was played.
For these men were the boyhood Idols of millions of
men. They had, in their day, fame comparable to the
present-day fame of Babe Ruth and Hack Wilson. No
one knows how many small boys used to enshrine these
men oh boyhood’s highest pedestals; and the adults that
those small boys have, by now, become look fondly back
to remark, wistfully, that there were giants on the earth
In those days.
This idealization of the professional ball player has
been an Integral part of American life for a good many
years now; and, on the whale, it has been a healthful
thing, and It still is. Small boys—and older boys as well
—are bound to have their heroes, and too often they pick
Out men who don’t deserve the honor. The nation, un
fortunately, has a wealth of notorious characters at all
times, from Jesse James to A 1 Capone, whom uncritical
boyhood Is willing to accept into its Academy of Immor
tals without question. The cult of athlete-worship has,
gone a long way to counteract this.
Perhaps the baseball hero is not quite as universal a
luminary as he once was. There are rival heroes now;
golfers like Bobby Jones, football players like Alble Booth,
decent and gentlemanly boxers like Gene Tunney. Still,
the Ruths and the Wilsons and the Groves and the
Cochranes have their followings, and who can say that
they are not equal to the followings once enlisted by
Cobb, Speaker and Collins?
At all events. It has been good to have the old-timers
get together. A great many of us looked upon them as
deml-gods, once upon a time, and they didn’t play us
false. They are part of the legends of our national game,
and it has been a good, healthful game.
The ‘Lame Ducks’ Will Return
This is about as good a time as any to point out that
the “lame duck” evil is still with us.
A great many congressmen and senators have already
been balked by the voters in their desire to return to
Washington. Many more will fall by the wayside In No
vember. Yet all of these defeated lawmakers will con
vene in December, empowered to continue at the work
of legislation for 13 months after they have been voted
out of office.
There is no excuse whatever for any further failure
on the part of congress to eliminate the lame duck. The
Norris amendment, which would prevent a man sitting
as a lawmaker after the voters have announced that they
want no more of him, has repeatedly passed the senate.
It should pass the house at the next session. Not one
valid reason can be cited In opposition to it.
Editorial Comment
Making Criminals by Law'
(New Leipzig Sentinel)
After 25 years Kansas repealed its law under which
it was a crime to manufacture, sell or give away cigar
ettes. In order to close this breach In the wall of pro
hibitory legislation, the people of Oregon will be asked
at the November election to suppress the cigarette by
constitutional amendment.
This mania of a few fanatics to “judge their neigh
bor” is a national menace. They do not wait until' the
neighbor has broken a fundamental law before trying to
punish him; they must pass a new law which i& almost
sure to make him a lawbreaker.
On the plea of preventing crime, these same reformers
propose anti-gun laws under which law-abiding citizens
would be denied the right to own small arms. The self
respecting gun-loving American is thereby placed In the
class with crooks and criminals when he has done
nothing whatever to deserve that classification. Such
restrictive and prohibitory legislation Is all proposed and
presented to the people in the name of liberty and free
dom. The irony of the situation is that when the peo
ple adopt such measures they simply reduce their own
rights and liberties, make hundreds of thousands of new
lawbreakers and'increase business opportunity for the
real criminal element which obeys no laws. In the words
of the San Francisco Chronicle ’“Creating so many
artificial crimes seems a rather high price to pay even
for the pure Joy of passing laws to regulate other peo
ple’s habits.” j
Theory Doesn’t Work
(Halllday Promoter)
In Germany possession and ownership of pistols and
revolvers are strictly controlled by law.
To purchase a gun from a legitimate dealer the law
abiding citizen must first-obtain a police permit. This
can be done only by unwinding a great deal of red tape.
The purpose of the law, of course, is to keep small arms
away from the criminal. That is the theory. But In
actual practice somewhat different results have been ob
tained. A recent Associated Press dispatch shows that
“pistol toting” has become s fixed practice in German
underworld circles and though 98 per cent of all former
dealers in firearms have gone out of business, the erode
or gangster has nq trouble in obtaining his weapon.
This should be of interest to those who sincerely be
lieve an anti-gun law Is needed In the United States.
Such a measure, by making it unlawful for a law-abiding
citiaan to own a gun, aets directly to an aid of crime.
Experiments in various of our states, as well as in
foreign countries, has conclusively demonstrated that it
can't disarm the underworld.
What we do need Is a law that will automatically in
crease the punishment of any criminal committing a
crime with a gun in his possession. A law of that kind
would help the fight against crime without penalising
the law-abiding in the process.
Another Mystery Is Explained
(McKenzie County Farmer)
At last the Coolldge facial expression has been ex
plained. For years It was presumed that the explanation
given by Alice Roosevelt Longworth was correct, L e. that
Cal had been weaned on a dill pickle, but now Lawrence
Saunders in Forbes Magazine gives another reuse *. In
an article on the installation of a new ventilating sys
tem in the executive office in the white house, he says:
“Mr. Coolidge, although he is a lean spare type, must
have found Washington a bit trying after Vermont and
Massachusetts. He used the Mayflower steadily, though
it was not always possible to find a cool breeze, even on
the yacht. Az to the executive offices, Mr. Coolldge not
only found them stuffy and muggy, but that the very
smell offended his nostrils. He kept on his desk s gadget
filled with chemicals supposed to purify, or at least
deodorise, the bad air.”
Thus to a deep mystery explained and the American
people should be grateful to Mr. Saunders.

meet Hale—but, it was a British boat.
He was searched and notes and plans
of the camps were found in his shoes.
Taken before General Howe, young
Hale was sentenced to be hanged the
next morning. His last words were,
“I only regret that I have but one

Collier, now, was different; vastly
so. Dan tried to imagine him get
ting crasy about a girl, but girls
meant nothing in Paul’s young life.
Dan surmised that might be one of
the reasons why women thought
Collier so attractive, though there
were sufficient other reasons why
they should think so. And he re
membered a story about Collier,
how a beautiful young featured
player had fallen for his non

trailed him all over Hollywood, and
had her trouble for her pains.

Some days later, when Dan tried
to Interest Anne in a Sunday of
swimming at Santa Monica Beach
or Venice, she told him she al
ready had been invited to a party
at Malibu. About 10 or 4 dozen
from the cast of the picture she
was working in were week-ending
at the beach, she said.
"I’m jealous, Anne."
"Yes, I know you are," her tone
a little scornfuL
“No fooling. Why don’t you
ever believe me?"
“I do, sometimes."
Anne had a gorgeous time. She
spent wonderful hours in the sun
and the water. She didn’t burn,
for which she always had been
thankful, but she came back a
shade darker. Fred Hurley, the
director, was in the party, and he
was very attentive to her in an
easy, gracious, friendly way that
Anne liked. She liked Hurley; he
showed her as much consideration
as the featured players, professed
to be enthusiastic over the progress
she was making. '
And she was progressing; The
picture was in production now.
After endless days and days of
monotonous drill the dances were
ready; Anne had tapped and
kicked and tapped through difficult
routines until she prayed for rest,
had stopped at the sudden rasped
command Of the dance director;
and then over and over again, hour
after hour of It Add Hurley had
given her the song he had prom
ised her. He was not sorry, he
said, hearing her rehearse it; it
was Anne Winter’s song.
Anne danced as she sang It,
danced with her hands on her hips
and with her arms flinging wide in
abandon, with a chorus behind her,
following. She smiled as she sang;
smiled with flashing teeth and
curving lips and vivid, sparkling
eyes, and she sang in a low,
smooth, mellow-sounding voice,
with a microphone following her
about overhead.
She went through it many times
before Hurley was satisfied; there
were difficulties with the chorus;
an extra “mike" was needed,
placed low to catch the rhythmic
tapping of dancing feet; the sound
chief had a new suggestion that
Hurley thought would help. AUd
once, after going through the
number, Anne swung a why from
the stage and found Garry Sloan
watching her.
He was-leanfhg against a step
ladder, one foot on the lower step,
an arm resting on an upper one.
He looked bigger and brawnier
than ever with his white shirt open

When young children become angry
they often hold their breath even to
the point of turning blue In the face.
In some cases the child may persist
until he Is unconscious, but death
from this trouble Is practically un
known. The situation Is very alarm
ing to the mother because she may
not know what Is the trouble nor
what Is best to do.
Holding the breath Is a means by
which many practically healthy
young children get what they want
from their parents. It will usually be
found that the child holds his breath
after he has been corrected or when
something he wants has been taken
from him. He may do this after some
strong excitement, as from fear, anger
or pain. He usually begins to cry and
then catches his breath. He may
utter half strangled sounds and his
face begins to turn blue. The child
may continue to struggle for breath
while the spasm lasts. After the
paroxysm Is over the air rushes Into
the lungs with a peculiar sound which
has been given the name of “child
crowing." As he breathes again, the
blueness fades and the color gradual
ly returns to the face. In some cases
the spasm lasts until the child is un
conscious and convulsions may also
occur, but this Is unusual and does
not take place with healthy children.
What occurs is a contraction of the
muscles of the larynx or voice box
which closes the glottis. This condi
tion is sometimes called a spasm of
the larynx or spasmodic laryngitis.
The spasm may come on during the
day or night, but nearly always .*s
brought on by excitement.
Children with rickets, adenoids or
nervousness are most often affected,
though healthy children may Inten
tionally develop this habit. Holding
the breath is often the result of a bad
nervous haMt which the child has
formed. Usually, it is first begun
when the parents pay too much at
tention to a child when he Is crying
because he Is angry. He finds that
by holding his breath he can gain the
center of the stage and have his own
way. If the child Is otherwise healthy
these spasms should cause the moth
er no great alarm. If the child is
nervous, he should be helped to form
a steadier mental attitude.
In persistent cases the child should
be carefully examined to see if there
are enlarged adenoids or an enlarged
thymus gland.
The best immediate treatment is to
throw a cup of cold water into the
child’s face, as the sudden shock will

had seen a whole stage cease
activity at a gesture from Sloan,
and utter silence reign where, an
instant before, there had been bed

a hand people stopped.
“Miss Winter," he said with a
smile, and he straightened up from
his lounging stance, spread his
feet, thrust his hands in his pock
ets. “How are you?” he asked.
Anne smiled, too. “Very well,
thanks, Mr. Sloan."

ward the set she had just quitted.
“I’ve been watching you," he said,
and paused, and Anne waited for
him to speak again.
“Very nice," he said.

“I mean you." Sloan’s smile
broadened at Anne’s momentary
bewilderment. “I mean your voice
is very nice. I like It. I’ve been
listening to you sing."

Many mothers find that a quick slap

Rheumatism and Weight-lifting
Question: E. M. R. writes: “I am
a man 29 years of age and have been
working outside lifting heavy weights.
I have pain and stiffness In my knees,
and the. muscles seem to twitch be
hind the knees. I eat quite a lot of
meat and smoke a number of cigar
ettes a day. Do you think it would
cause rheumatism?”
Answer: Rheumatism is not caused
by eating meat, nor by cigarette
smoking; neither is it caused by lift
ing weights, although the latter may
be an Irritating cause. Rheumatism <
Is in every case caused by autointox- '*
ication, from self-poisoning through
using the wrong kinds of food or
from local Infections of various kinds
which are the irritating causes start
ing an attack of rheumatism. How
ever, the soil must be laid in autoin
toxication first or rheumatism could
not develop. A reasonable amount of
cigarettes a day will have no effect
upon your trouble. Use a limited
amount of whatever food you do use
and do not be afraid of a small
amount of meat, providing it is pre
pared properly and combined jn the '
right manner with vegetables. It
might be necessary for you to give up
your heavy work far a time and give
your knees a rest.
Foods to Avoid with Catarrh
Question: A. R. asks: “What foods
are non-catarrh-producing? I am
on my seventh day of fasting, taking
only manges and grapefruit, and have
reduced my weight from 175 to 168
pounds, but would like to follow a diet
that would cure catarrh. My tongue
is still very coated. What should I
do for that?” ,
Answer: Foods that can be said to
be catarrh producing are starches,
sugars and fats. So if you will leave
these foods out of your diet for a con
siderable period of time, I am sure
you will find you will get very satis
factory results in overcoming your
catarrhal difficulty. I am glad to
note that you have reduced your
weight ind I hope you will continue
to do so until it reaches the normal.
You must expect to have a coated
tongue for several months, as this
does not clear up until the system
has adjusted itself to the new way of
dieting, and until you are practically
in perfect health.
