Logan Payne C°- CHICAGO NEW YORK BOBTON The Uses of Adversity If the business depression tnat has been riding us for the lest few months has done nothing else, it at least has provided a stopper for a lot of the bunk and hot air that had been Infesting the land in brighter days. The easy optimism of the old days of prosperity Is gone, and In its place there Is emerging an attitude of self-criticism and skepticism that is a great deal more wholesome. Up to the stock market disaster of October, 1939, the sky was the limit. People who were old enough to know better went around assuring everybody that we had entered Into a new era, in which depression, panic and disaster would be no more. All tears were to be wiped sway, all account books would balance eternally, and prices, wages, production schedules and the spirits of mankind were to keep on rising forever. There was al most an apocalyptical character to these prophecies and revelations. We are a little bit wiser now, apparently. This kind of talk Is not heard quite so freely; and In that fact lies the one great benefit which this extremely unpleasant de pression is bringing. It Is Impossible’ to make much progress when you dis count all obstacles in advance. Success of any kind is only to be had by hard work and deep thought. Provi dence, in its inscrutable wisdom, has not yet reached the point where It Is going to hand the sons of men all the riehes of earth on a silver platter—not even In the United States. But hard work and deep thinking, oddly enough, were i very popular in the period that ended with the great (trail Street crash. Instead, we gave our attention to ne glib talker, to the bluffer, to the man who could see ahead of us but a clear track and green signal Right now we are paying for it. Of eoufbe. lf we simply sit back now and wall about the cruelty of fate, the depression Is not going to do us any good. But If we realise that the bluffer and the high pressure artist have outlived their usefulness, we be able to buckle down and pave the way for a real return to prosperity. The field of economics is one of the most complicated fields there Is. It holds out tantalising possibilities, now and then; the last half-dosen years, for instance, came fairly close to fulfilling all of the gaudy promises that the boosters were making. To find out just what the margin may be between the promise and the reality, and to learn how this margin may be wiped out—these are tasks calling for the best brains the country has. Our present attitude is favorable to the impartial study that such tasks will require. The old attitude wasn't. In the long run the hard times of 1930 will probably be recognised as a salutary experience—even though they are pretty hard to put up with right now. The Real Objection to Gas The use of poison gas Is generally listed as one of the supreme horrors of modern warfare. It is interesting, therefore, to note that the surgeon general of the U. 8. army points out that poison gas killed not more than 200 American soldiers during the World war, in com* parison with the 38,147 who were killed by projectiles. Of soldiers sent to hospitals, some 70,000 had been gassed as compared with more than 147,000 who had been wounded. Obviously, poison gas has not come close to replacing bullets and shells on the battlefield. What causes the agitation against gas, of course, is the way it can be used against civilian non-combatants. A sustained gas bombardment from the air might easily destroy half the population of a big city in half an hour. It is for this reason that gas looms as the deadliest 'weapon in the modern arsenal—despite these figures from the last war. The Last Schooner Is Gone The last of the old fleet of windjammers has vanished from the Great Lakes in the sinking of the schooner Our Son; and those to whom the flavor of the old days is attractive will find a melancholy interest in the an- The windjammers fared worse on the lakes than they did on the ocean. Coastwise schooners are still in serv ice on salt-water, and some of them even clear for over seas ports; but the sailing vessel has been a rarity on the lakes for years. There are too many places like the Detroit and St. Clair rivers, where a schooner must be towed, to enable sail to compete with steam; and the steamboats on the lakes carry bulk freight so cheaply that the schooner’s economic advantage is gone. But the windjammers served the middle west very well, In their day. They helped to build up the Interior of the nation, and most of us will be sorry to learn that the last of them has gone. 1 1 ■*r Our Responsibility in Cuba Senator David L Walsh of Massachusetts is not a sena tor given to the making of wild and irresponsible state ments; consequently, when he declares—as he did recent ly—that affairs in Cuba are in a bad state and that a violent revolution may develop if this country does not take seme sort of action, his assertion deserves some se rious consideration. .t Under the Flat amendment, this country has a more direct degree of responsibility for affairs in Cuba than tor affairs In any other Latin-American nation. We fave Cuba her independence and pledged ourselves to see to It that her national existence ran fairly smoothly. If anything goes wrong there we cannot wash our of it Base and owed of vocal communication over long dis tances is an essential factor in keeping the modern world •etag. The principal difference between the United States of today and the United States of 50 years ago is that local boundaries have, to a large degree, been forgotten. For A Small Word all practical purposes, state lines have been obliterated. Provincialism has been banished. Much of this is due to the telephone, which has. liter ally, made the world sbialler. One of the greatest aids to national and International understanding and cooper ation is the fact that for a very little money and In a few minutes of time we can speak to a person across the seas almost as easily as to one In the next township. What Will Happen Next? It will be interesting to see whether any criminal prosecutions develop out of the Norris senatorial pri mary hocus-pocus in Nebraska. Evidence submitted thus far makes it seem probable that some tall lying was Indulged In, under oath, by va rious people. Of course, the whole thing Is strictly the business of the people of Nebraska; but the rest of the country will want to see just what, if anything, Is to happen next. The effort to beat Senator Norris by digging up a no body who happened to bear the same name, and inducing him to enter the senatorial primary, was dirty business from the start. Sharing Our Helium Admiral Moffett's suggestion that the United 'States share its helium gas with other nations, so that dirigibles overseas can have the safety features which previously have been exclusively American, sounds like a very good idea. Helium can be produced in quantity only In the Uni ted States. However, the supply here seems to be great enough so that we could spare all that Is needed over seas, and except in war time it Is hard to see how there could be any objection to such a step. Here would be a humanitarian act; It would also be valuable as a "goodwill” gesture. Editorials printed below show the trend of thought by other editors.

Editorial Comment The Hot Dog, 1805-1930 (St. Paul Dispatch) America has taken many European Institutions and adapted them to its needs. Some of these borrowed in stitutions it has improved upon, and not the least of these is the hot dog. The United States, therefore, has a vital interest in the celebration in Vienna, Austria, of the one hundred and twenty-fifth birthday of the Frankfurter. The creator of this well-known sausage was one Johann Georg Lahner, who deserves a sort of immortality fflj his contribution to the gustatory Joys of life. Those who have a bent for nomenclature will be Interested to know that the inventor named his product after the German city where he had learned the butcher’s trade. This, no one can deny, was a beautiful sentiment nobly expressed. The American Improvement on the Frankfurter was its insertion, with plenty of mustard, between the halves of a bun. By this experiment the Frankfurter was transformed into the hot dog, a typically American institution. This Viennese product has been so thor oughly assimilated into American life in the course of years that its European antecedents had been quite for gotten. America is grateful for the reminder. A National Authority on Conservation (Minneapolis Tribune) One of the first and most effective voices raised in the northwest for conservation of wild life and natural resources was that of Carlos N. Avery, who died Sunday at his home in New York, a nationally recognized au thority on conservation. Twenty years ago Mr. Avery was telling Minnesota that its game and fish were a natural resource adding to its summer charm, attracting new revenue to the state and well worth protecting from needless exploitation. His point of view was often contrary to that of sportsmen and their organizations, yet he urged it with a firmness and conviction which resulted in mo6t of the things he ad vocated becoming part of their plans and programs. As great a work as he did in Minnesota, however, was the building up at Hutchinson of one of the state’s strongest and most Influential country newspapers. In experienced in the practical sense when he entered the publishing business, he set a pace apd adopted methods, widely followed later by other publishers which resulted in vast improvement in the quality and Influence of the country press. Mr. Avery demonstrated that a country newspaper can be made attractive, have distinct Individuality and fill a most Important place in any community by assum ing leadership in many neglected fields. He had char acter and real ability. Old friends will learn with sin cere regret of his passing. The Gospel of Confidence (Washington Star) If anybody expected President Hoover before the bank ers at Cleveland last night to deal in concrete prophecy about the business situation, disappointment is the result. The chief executive carefully kept off the perilous ice of prediction. He confined himself to generalities con cerning the “severe shock” and “disorganization in our economic system, which have temporarily checked the march of prosperity.” But he did not fail to preach to the masters of the nation’s finance a healthy and hope ful gospel of confidence. He adjured them that in their intimate relations, with the people, as guides, philosoph ers and friends, there rests upon them in a peculiar sense the duty of maintaining that morale without which busi ness recovery cannot be accelerated. Perhaps the president calculated that to dogmatize the bankers of the country about the economic outlook would be akin to carrying coals to Newcastle. One of their own shining lights, Col. Leonard P. Ayres of Cleve land, had told the convention earlier in the day that the end of 1931 might reasonably be fixed as the date when “statisticians’ normal,” L e., the mean between the peak of pre-crash prosperity and post-crash depression, would be at hand. At several points of his thoughful, if cautious, remarks, Mr. Hoover stressed the ephemeral character of Amer ica’s commercial and industrial plight. We have sur vived “a thousand temporary setbacks.” he asserts. “Tem porary” is. of course, a relative term. Hitherto our economic recessions have run an average course of 12 or 13 months. If Col. Ayres’ expert prognostication is well founded, business will have been “in the red,” so to speak, for more than twice as long a period. Yet—and herein lies the kernel of President Hoover’s Cleveland speech—there is nothing in even so protracted a spell of bad times to dishearten, discourage or de moralize our people. It cannot sap or undermine the fundamentals upon which American national wealth and prosperity rest. These remain, unimpaired, as Mr. Hoover usefully points out. That they will, as in the past, prove to be the foundation of revived welfare cannot be doubted. The president counsels the country to take heart from Its history. In the homely vernacular, he says to us that we may be down, but we are far from being out. By their unstinted applause of these steadying senti ments, the bankers converted them into the keynotes of Mr. Hoover’s address. They approved his affirmation that “this Is no time for surrender.” They acquiesced in the declaration that “the spirit of this people will never brook defeat.” Between the lines of his speech runs the plain hint that to put its house in order is rather the task of American business itself. The gov ernment can only cooperate in that process, as it has signally done during the past year and a half. It is well that Mr. Hoover chose, in preference to prophecy, to emphasize his “undaunted faith in those resources and qualities which have driven us ever for ward.” The American people need to regain confidence in their own boundless strength. No surer remedy for the economic blues Is available. The inexhaustible foun tains of well-being are still with us, carrying their cer tain guarantee of a solid future for a virile people of 120,000,000 souls. No less proper than the president’s reminder on this score Is his exposition of the fact that the 1929-30 depression is world wide, springing from causes far beyond our own power to control. “The need of today,” Mr. Hoover observed in his peroration c.t Cleveland, “is continued unity of effort and establishment of safeguards for the future.” If American business takes that admonition to heart, its existing trials and tribulations will turn out to have been blessings in disguise. THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11. 1930 —And It’s Going to Be More Than a One-Club Game, Too! I Today Is the Anniversary of DUTCH SE' On Oct. 11, 1614, the states general of Holland named the country around Manhattan Island "New Netherlands” and granted a charter for its settle ment to Amsterdam merchants. The states general previously had passed a law conferring on those who should discover new lands the ex clusive privilege of making four voy ages thither before others could have admission to the traffic. The ordinance excited considerable activity among adventurers. A num ber of merchants of Amsterdam and Hoorn soon fitted out five ships. This fleet, during a subsequent exploring expedition, touched the mouth of the Great river and the Manhattan, Long Island, Cape Cod, Delaware Bay and other points on the east coast of America.

NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER XXXVIII TVTONA MORRISON frequently observed, with her customary flippancy, that Anne Winter needed a secretary, but to Anne letter writ ing was a form of recreation and had been since childhood. There was a not inconsiderable amount of fan mail these days, which she at* tended to personally and briefly; but the weekly letter to her mother and father was tat and invariably required extra postage. About Rorlmer she wrote: “He’s as sweet and considerate as he can be—« wonderful friend. I feel that It's my own fault In a way, but I’m rather helpless to do anythin* about it If I loved a man enough to want to marry him, 1 think I’d know It, don’t you?*’ It was her father whom , she really appealed to in telling of Dan’s proposal.

Anne smiled. explorers were employed lost no time in obtaining the exclusive trade of the countries thus explored. They sent deputies to the Hague to report their discoveries.

That was the day Garry Sloan asked her to dinner. He was show ing some visitors around the lot at the time and he saw her and in troduced them, explaining to his friends that she was to have the feminine lead in his nest picture. • • 0 TV7HEN they had gone 81oan con “ tinued to talk with her. Of late he had been quite friendly. He said he would like to take her to the Embassy Club that evening If she was not busy, and mentioned that his visiting friends were in the party. "I’ll be glad to go along,” Anne said. Mona saw hla car draw up before the bungalow and she would have run off If Anne had not insisted on introducing her. "Don’t be foolish,” she coun seled smilingly. "Make an impres sion before he gets away.” Mona’s ever-ready wisecracks de serted her when she shook hands with him. The vast area of white shirt front against a black dinner coat was overpowering. She could accomplish little more than a smile. Sloan said they were to pick up his friends at the Roosevelt, and on the drive downtown la the impres sively long phaeton, gleaming with black and silver, he began to tell her of his plans concerning the forthcoming picture. Grand United, he Informed her. Intended to spend a lot of money on it; Lester Moore would have the greatest role bf his career.

Two Chicago policemen always are on gfciard at the home of 12-year-old Billy Ranieri, who was rescued from kidnapers two years ago. Two men were convicted of kidnaping him. Only one of 591 prisoners received at the South Dakota state prison in the last two years had a colleg. edu cation, according to Warden G. T. Jameson. There are about 1,000,000 teachers in the country, with nearly half that number now in schools preparing to teach. And when he left Anne at her door, he said he would like to go somewhere with her sometime when there were "no visiting fire men wanting to see the sights.” "How about a little swimming party Sunday?” And he said, "I'll ask Lester Moore and his wife; you’ll like her.” Anne went with him. Later in the week the Moores invited her and Sloan to dinner. Dan Rorimer’s visits to the bun galow were less frequent now. Anne said nothing about this to him; she did not urge him; and he sup posed she felt that under the cir cumstances things were better this way. Between them had come a slight restraint, though both had sought to avoid such a thing. Mona inquired about him often, and once or twice she had remarked to Anne that she wondered where Dan Rorlmer was keeping himself; but it did not take her long to sense that something had. happened, and she refrained from asking questions that might seem pointed. Paul Collier, too, felt that things were not exactly as they should be, but Paul had a blunt way of find ing out "What’s the matter with you and Anne?” “Nothing. Why?” • • * DAUL grinned and dropped down on the piano bench. His fin gers struck a chord. "There’s a lot of satisfaction in that I guess. Come clean; what happened? Did you propose to Anne and get turned down?” Dan waa silent and Paul struck another chords "Did you?” he in sisted. And Dan'thought there waa no point in hiding the truth from him, so he admitted that that waa what had happened. Paul said, *1 thought there was something the matter. Well . . .” He got up from the piano. “Sorry if I was too curious.” "Don't be silly. It’s nothing to keep locked up in your vest, is it?” Collier smiled. "Well, you should worry. Think of Johnny Riddle and all of those swell clients of bin Johnny’s proposals. If laid end to end, would reach all the way from her* to Denver. I think if Johnny threw his heart out the window it would bounce.” He moved over to the window, rested one long leg on the sill. "Anyway,” he said presently, "Anne’s just a kid. Give her time, my boy.” "You’re a great comfort,” Dan told him with a chuckle. "She’s old enough to know what she wants, I guess.” The little calendar on Rorimer’s desk shed its top leaf daily, and September came to Hollywood. With it came the start of produc tion on his picture. He was having his opportunity now to observe the famous Garry Sloan at work—and Sloan worked. ThO man’s vitality was terrific and it somehow communicated Itself to WINTER SQUASHES, GOOD BTARCHT POODS The squashes, of which there are some fifty-five varieties, claim the gourd for their remote progenitor. They vary from the soft little sum mer squashes to exceedingly large, hard-shelled winter squashes. Hub bard squash is an excellent variety of winter squash, being dark green and yellow color an the outside and golden yellow on the inside. The shell is so form that it often has to be split with a hatchet The shell usually has a warty appearance, although it may be almost smooth in some instances. Other winter squashes contain prac tically the same food value as the Hubbard squash. The small pump kins, the Canada crookneck squashes and the banana squash may all be prepared in the sflme way and they make excellent medium starchy vege tables which may be used at a meal containing either starchy or protein foods. In selecting a Hubbard squash, pick out a firm one with no soft spots in the shell, rather chop it open or saw it, then clean out the numerous seeds and cut the squash in small pieces. Put it in the oven and bake until ten der and the top is a golden brown. It may be served right in the shell with butter over it, or the flesh may be scooped out of the shell and mashed and cream added. If you prefer, these squashes may be cooked like mashed potatoes, cutting the flesh into small pieces, boiling mashing and adding cream and butter. It is a good plan to include one or more of the cooked and raw non starchy vegetables at a meal contain ing the winter squashes, but since they contain some starch, it is better to exclude tomatoes or any of the acid fruits at the meal. Both the winter squashes and the pumpkin keep well throughout the winter and they are large enough so that one is sufficient for a meal of a small family. During the fall and winter months you may add variety to your meals occasionally by using these excellent squashes. They are available during the fall and winter months when the vegetable variety is limited. Patients who arc on a non-starchy diet and who feel a craving for some form of starch may Indulge by taking a serving of winter squash which has a carbohydrate content of from 3 per cent to 15 per cent, and has an added value of being alkaline-form ing, since it contains good quantities of potash, lime and soda. It is an ex cellent food for those who have been others around him, so that, though they smarted at times under his ruthless exaetlon and the leak of bis criticism, they responded, as he demanded they respond, la what had come to be spoken of around the Grand United lot as the "Sloan tempo.” There was no other just like hlffii Rorlmer learned. He was a tyrant, lordly and Impatient and difficult to please. But be knew what he wanted. And for that Dan respected him. Between the two there had been a number of conferences, from each of which Dan emerged with more changes for his script Garry Sloan dominated the picture; It was his;] but Rorlmer did not clash with him. Despite the curious resent ment he felt toward the director—a feeling that he had never been able entirely to shake—Dan waa forced to yield him his admiration. He said to Paul Collier; "I give him credit He knows what’ll make a picture good, all right He had me write a couple of new lines for Lester Moor* today. I’m a son of a gun if he doesn’t know more about what Moore can do than Moor* himself.” Collier said, "The best in tbfl business, my boy.” "I guess you’re right But* stubbornly, "I still say that Martin Collins is the guy to work with, Collins manages to leave a little credit for the other fellow.” 'i And Paul smiled. Both of them, he admitted, had their points. "And Martin Collins is a regular guy, all right But you’ll learn a lot of staff from Sloan; see if you don’t* Dan thought he already had learned a few things from him, and a lot about him, during the prepa ration of the scenario; but when "shooting” started and he saw Garry Sloan beside the camera, he saw a different man. Here Sloan was king, a giant blond-headed king la soiled white flannels on a canvas throne. And Sloan did not suggest here; he commanded. He could smile when something pleased him, and he could praise with a brief word or two when praise was someone’s due; but more often In the picture’s early stages Rorlmer would see him frown or shake his head in disapproval at Something not quit* right, and everything would stop instantly and a scene would be done over. "Cut!” 81oan would command. And then, heartlessly: "That’s lousy; that won’t do at all.” But he got things, done. A difficult production schedule had been mapped out, necessitating, because of the director’s exacting demands and the heavy daily ex pense, a good deal of work In the evenings. Often the cast was kept until a late hour at night, and Dan thought Ann* Winter was begin ning to look a little tired. He told her so. “Finding it pretty tough, aren’t you?” But Anne shook her head and smiled at him. "I guess I’m too en thusiastic to be tired. Dan.” (To Be Continued) HEREJTVTOnyOUR^ HEALTH JSy’JDr /SPAV/C * WCCy I «rmoe^or v *iMC smt ww to health- I Al pStowpliiHrig mitt* l I '*£«• mm Lb «l •*.

I have been told that near my 21st birthday I may expect a change for the better, the explanation being that during youth at intervals of seven years a change occurs. Is this true?” Answer: It is true that heart dis orders of childhood often gradually disappear after adolescence, but do not depend too much upon this possi ble change. Start eating correctly so that you do not have an excessive amount of gas pressure against your heart, as such gas pressure is the most common cause of all heart de rangements. Question: H.

Ordinarily, when milk is used at all, it should be used as a meal, itself, and not in addition to any of the customary three meals a day. Stomach Trouble Question: Mrs. G.
