Logan Payne Co. CHICAGO NEW YORK BOSTON Cheer Through the Darkness One of the biggest men in modem America is Walter S. Gifford, president of the American Telephone and Telegraph company. He has risen from obscurity to a point where he sits in the councils of the mighty and his words are heard with respect Place doesn't always mean ability but in Gifford’s case it seems to have no other significance, for if reports are true the man has no pride in the place he holds. He is too busy concentrating on the job to be done. There is a lot of concentrating necessary when one is the head of one of the world's largest corporations. In view of the character of the man, therefore, it will be cheering to many of us to hear his views on current business problems. Speaking to the members of the As sociated Press at New York Monday; Gifford said: *‘l know that there are right now several mil lion men and women who want to work but are unemployed in this country. I have spent a good part of the winter helping to raise money to provide work for the unemployed in this city. But as bitter a picture as that is, it does not change the fact that our industrial civilization has brought us within sight of a democracy of well-being, and has crystallized our intention to see it accomplished. “Before machines added to man’s ability to produce, the cycles of depression were caused by underproduction. Years came when there was not enough to go round—when people died of cold, hunger and disease in such numbers that the world accepted Malthus’ theory. The condition of having people out of work in a country that has more of everything than it needs is, humanly speaking, a vast advance over having people with out clothes, food or shelter in a country that has not enough of the essentials to go round. Before the era of the capitalistic industrial democracy there was no escape from the periodic calamities of underproduction except in those places w'here people could find virgin territories to exploit and in those only for comparatively short periods. “American democracy is founded on the partici pation of all the people in government, in the benefits of education, and in the well-being made possible by ample production.” There is nothing remarkable in that statement and yet it has the earmarks of common sense. Sometimes there is little difference between plain horse sense and downright genius, too. For, after all, Mr. Gifford is right. The problems which we have today are the “problems of plenty,” as a leading Bismarck citizen phrased it in an address recently. Adjustment and readjustment are slow pro cesses, for it takes time to reconcile the human mind to new conditions. It took centuries for mankind to over come the problems of stark want and of always-imminent disaster. The job was accomplished by use of the new tool of mass production. It is not inconceivable that the genius which created and used that instrument will find a method of controlling it. At any rate, the problem presented is one less filled With torture, doubt, despair and agony than the problems which confronted our forefathers. A Pioneer Laid to Rest j Bismarck mourns today as Arthur Van Horn, pioneer | Citizen and builder, Is laid to rest. During a long and active life Mr. Van Horn was an active force for progress in the Missouri Slope country. Active in civic affairs, he gave unstintingly of his time, money and effort to make Bismarck a bigger and a better city. It was he who designed and helped to con struct some of the city’s most imposing structures and for many years he was the executive head of the state board having the licensing of architects in charge. Scores of school and other public buildings through out western North Dakota testify to his genius as an architect and his skill as a planner. No man in the history of the state has left more monuments to his activities while alive and long after his death value and benefit will continue to be derived from the services he has rendered. Arthur Van Horn's life history should serve as an inspiring example to the young men who, in the natural course of time, have come up to share the augmented burdens which he once carried alone. I’ll Write a Book Joseph Weil, self-styled “King” of confidence-men, says he is going to retire and write a book. Mr. Weil has long been known to the police of Chicago, too well and painfully known, for he has caused them many sleepless nights. It might be more accurate to say that he would have caused them sleepless nights were they not Chicago police, but anyway, this Weil has been a troublesome fellow. Everytime a policeman saw him he looked to see if Mr. Weil's hands were in his own pockets or in the pockets of the man standing next to him. In short, it may safely be observed that Mr. Well was a thorn In the flesh, a hairshirt on the back of the forces of law and order. The abdication of Mr. Weil came at a time when he could hardly be permitted to retire from the limelight, for the police had him in Jail and it was their desire of the moment to take him before a magistrate and have that official say harsh words to him. That probably will come later. Sometimes kings have a difficult time, even after they decide to mend their ways and abandon their Jcingshlp. There evidently is something merry and roguish about |fr. Weil for he takes well with reporters and they write pieces about him. It was they who made, him an unof ficial king, perhaps, and it was they to whom he con ifided bis abdication. ; The reason for his action, he said, is a realization that !>the twilight of* king* has come.” and as for what hall r do next, he announces he will write a book, “like all deposed monarch*.” All of which may be true or Just an Intriguing bit of nonsense, but whatever it is the honest individual would do well to steer clear of Mr. Well and his ilk. The only real retirement his kind knows comes when a stern judge, with small sense of humor, says something nasty such as, for instance, “10 years in the state penitentiary.” We Entertain a King For the first time, perhaps, since some long-forgotten aboriginal king trod our sod, North Dakota entertains a ruling monarch. The visit of King Prajadhipok of Siam was brief and uneventful. To be perfectly frank, his passage through this state was a necessity rather than an act of desire. His one aim was to get to New York as soon as possible and there obtain relief from the ailment which threatens him with blindness. The little brown man from the Far East was too ill to, show himself to the North Dakota crowds and even if he were feeling fit it is improbable that he would have done so. After all he is one of the few living men who rules over a nation with absolute power. It was something of a pity that Prajadhipok could not be put on display for the benefit of those few persons who have a tendency to worship royalty and all that is con nected with it. Even the most confirmed sycophant could have seen little cause for adulating a frail chap weighing less than 100 pounds and with few evidences of virility about him. To impress an American as a king it is almost necessary to look and act like a king, and anyone would have difficulty doing that if he failed to tip the scales at a more respectable figure. A monarch need not be Falstaffian but he should be sizable to make an impression. Nevertheless, the strong points of our royal visitor should not be overlooked. Reigning over what probably was one of the most backward sections of the globe, he has gone modern with a vengeance and has done much to improve the lot of the people. Having despotic power, he has declined to use it except in a benevolent man ner. This is to his credit and it confirms his claim to kingship in the eyes of the civilized world. It seems safe to say. however, that he would have difficulty obtain ing recognition were he not the head of a ruling house. Som&how, the average American is tempted to chuckle a bit at the idea of a little brown man, be he “Light of Asia” or what-not, enforcing his kingship over people of Nordic birth. A Real Safety Example An example in safety work that is well worth emulation is afforded by the Union Pacific Railroad system. The April issue of its magazine is devoted to that subject from the standpoint of the men who are charged with the company’s safety activities. A car department in its railroad shop worked 300 men for six years and three months without an accident caus ing the loss of as much as a day’s time—another group of 218 men employed in a roundhouse worked 732 con secutive days without a single lost-time injury—6oo men worked two years on a $5,000,000 depot construction proj ect without a single fatality—during 1930 a total of 845 of the company’s foremen completed a record of seven consecutive years without an accident to any of the em ployes in their department—during the past 20 years personal injuries at one of the company’s locomotive shops have been reduced from an average of 50 to an average of 4 per month; a reduction of more than 90 per cent. These are some of the high lights of the company’s safety record They are cited because they show, better than any argument, what continuous, conscientious work can do to reduce accidents in even hazardous industries. There is no secret to safety, nor any golden road to ac cident prevention—lt is a matter of unremitting, intel ligent effort, over a period of time. And the work done pays for itself over and over again—in more contented workers, in greater and better production, and in less wasted time.

A Rubber Chicken Comes Home (Barron’s Weekly) _ Crude rubber, at 6.5 cents a pound, is selling at the lowest price in modern times. Whatever influences may have contributed towards this price that appears ruinous for producers, the whole thing harks back to an attempt at official control of price and output. If another lesson of the futility of “orderly marketing” of staple products is needed, here it is. The Stevenson plan of orderly marketing appeared to be as near perfect as any plan of that order, might be. The planters of British East Indies had a monopoly of rubber production, so the consuming world could be made to pay much higher prices. This was to be accomplished by the familiar “orderly marketing” slogan of controlling distribution according to demand and supply. Exports were to be taxed so as to make the control effectual and permit the officials in charge of marketing to feed the supply to consumers In such a way as to make them dic tators of the price. The plan worked beautifully, at least for a time. When it went into effect, Nov. 1,1922, rubber waa selling at 20 cents, but in time it went to $1.20, and great was the producers' acclaim of the plaq. But alas for human hopes! On its sixth anniversary It passed out of exist ence. The main reason is that the high prices stimulated producers in other countries to plant. The theory of “orderly marketing” of non-perishable products by controlling the flow, and therefore the price, is as catching aa measles. Individuals and governments have been innoeulated with it for the marketing of cof fee, sugar, silk, silver, rubber, and wheat, pnd in every case the governments have merely hatched out a brood of undesirable chickens, all of which must come home to roost. • ‘IOO Per Cent American’ (Hartford Courant) A professor at Columbia university uttered wisdom when he objected to the misuse of the adjective "Ameri can,” applied, as he said, to everything from our high est form of culture to our most brutal manifestations of crime. He also objected to the term “100 per cent,” which is always taken as a necessary part of the phrase. He said that the adjective, thrown at people and at things promiscuously seems to have attracted the attention of people all over the world. “Foreigners come here to tell us what it means and write books in which their com patriots can reed about it, and some of u* are engaged in confirming by our actions and books what these for eigners say. It is pertinent to ask If it is a work of wis dom. either in ourselves or others, to throw the adjective about as it is so currently thrown, with a scope reaching 100 per cent, at art, literature, culture, philosophy, morals, manners, money and murders.” All honor to a cultured man who dares to protest against the continued shouting about 100 per cent Amer icanism, for the clamor Indicates, not that the men or the ideas are necessarily either right or patriotic, but rather that the ahouters have a keen inward sense of their own inferiority and are bearing a tom-tom to dis tract attention fro m their own shortcomings. The “100 per cent American” it so engaged in tho day's work that his has neither the rift* nor the inoifterion to‘call foa attention of foe world to htt bctSiKntt. The really patriotic persons whom meet 0C us hafri khoWn have never endeavored to act as their own publicity agents, nor did they realize that they were worthy Of homage until honor came unsought of them. Perhaps the protest voiced by the professor will avail little but It is at least heartening to discover that there is still a speaker with sufficient courage to tell the truth at a time when the tendency is to Join the crowd and shout. THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE, TUESDAY, APRIL 21, 1931 PITCHING FOOL| SYNOPSIS:—When the kid brother of the Home Ron King, Harry Rushe, decided to also become a big league player he met opposition everywhere, especially from his brother and sisters. Bert quits college for a bush league, plays there two seasons, shifts to another league at better money and while waiting for the season to open meets a college friend, now in the show business. An old Triend of Bert’s is in the chorus. Something Bert says gets the leading lady sore and she swsars that Bert’s chorus girl friend must be “canned.” w ¥ HEARD, Mr. Rinley, and I’ll quit,” Dolly said, promptly, I “I don’t know why Seeva Lunley is sore at me, she’s never spoken to me, but you’ve got trouble enough, as it is, with this thing.” “That doesn’t go,” I put in, hastily, “because it happens to be my fault, not Dolly’s.” “Why Bert, that’s nonsense ” I interrupted Dolly. ’ *T made a crack to Rinley Just now that you could do better in the lead than this dame. She heard me and that made her sore. Of course, she wants you fired." “Bert, I’m afraid you are a Jonah," Rinley muttered. “That settles It—you are a born showman, full of superstition and other junk,” I twitted him, grinning. “See me at the hotel tonight after you get done whatever you have to do.” He promised. Dolly joined me soon to go to supper, but she wasn’t feeling very gay about it. I knew a good place in Washing ton. Harry had taken me there on one of the occasions when we went into the city from his country place. “What does the show need most?” I asked Dolly when we had ordered and I had been able to get some thing the dry fanatics did not open ly approve of. “Another comedian and a lead with a good voice, Bert,” Dolly as sured me. “Book and lyrics are good, except for the need of more comedy. It won’t click on Broad way. I’m betting on that, and that ( is why I just as soon quit now and back and rehearse another, but ere’s not so much nourishment ‘in rehearsing all the time.” “Rinley is worried about it,” I muttered. J . .. “Why not? He’s at the end ot his bankroll and that Seeva Luniey is bleating all the time about getting more money or quitting. Now she pulls this hot one about me.” Dolly Dawson had a swell sense of humor and she laughed. “Speaking of the devil,” I said and directed Dolly’s glance with my eyes. Seeva Lunley was breezing in with some pale-haired chap. She fairly ruffled herself as if -she expected every one to stop and give three cheers. | The Snub! j When she caught sight of us she glared, and muttered to her escort: “Ferdie, I thought you said you would take me to an exclusive place: any one can come here, it seems.' The nervous young man muttered something and they swept on. Poor Dolly, her cheeks burned and her eyes blazed. "Forget it! She doesn’t belong. Most of them are real people. HI bet a thousand to one that some angel put up for Rinley’s production, and he had to start her.” I told Dolly. “That Isn’t gambling—it’s a safe bet.” and Dolly laughed. We had our suppei ana a lew dances. I took Dolly to her hotel tiecause I was to see Rinley there. Like so many others in the show game, Dolly and three of her girl friends took a double room, and :n that manner could easily afford it. There is a sort of lounging room In this hotel, where both ladies and gentlemen may read, write and smoke. I was chatting with Dolly there, waiting for Rinley, when in blows this Seeva Lunley. It made me chuckle. „ . "Watch the fit she throws,” I whispered. But evidently she didn’t see us, 1 thought. I wasn’t wise then, but soon tumbled to her trick. Passing close to the little double seat, or “love seat,” by a smoking stand, where Dolly and I were sitting, Miss Lunley dropped her mesh bag. It was some bag. I could see that, all right. She strolled on. I picked up the bag and followed her. Her pale haired escort was still with her. “You dropped your bag. Miss Lun ley,” I said, ana then she pulled her stuff, which wisea we up that it was all a little tricky scheme of hers to let me know just what she thought of me. She, looked me up and down as if I had been a grotesque and distaste ful carved image. “Ferdy,” she said, “take the bag and tip the person!” I heard Dolly gasp at this. I feared she might lose her temper at this point and make a scene. The snooty little sap took the mesh bag, struck it under his arm, producer a bill fold and brought out a dollar Mil. < ‘*Er*-mtny thanks for your hbn eiSe*va*iuniey urns not trying to suppress her malicious grin. “Oh, thank you, sir,” f said. Then X dug down and brought out a handful of change. I thrust some into his hand. “Here’s ninety-five cents back— I beliave a nickel is the size of your Joint tips, isn’t it?” “Er— why— er—why—.” While he was stammering and Another Business Suffers Acute Depression!^ getting peevish I took out my light er, lighted the dollar bill, let it burn two-thirds of the way down and rubbed the charred end across his silly face. "Beat it, you cheap monkey, or I’ll slap your donkey ears down,” I said, sharply. "Call the house detective,” Miss Lunley cried, shrilly. "And some newspaper reporters," 1 added. I turned back and saw Morris Rinley standing beside Dolly Daw son's chair. Dolly was trying to smother her giggles. Rinley seemed distressed. “That would have been funny if 1 didn't depend on a friend of hers for more backing," he informed me. “Sit down, Morris; let’s get all the sickening details,” I told tom. A house detective came up. “Winch one of you socked Senator X—s son?” he asked, glaring at me. “Go change a tire, you’ve got a flat,” I barked at him. Rinley got his first laugh. He knew this chap. He took hold of his coat lapel. “Listen, Dan, it’s a blood curdling yam,” he said and he told what he had seen. “Sue him for a million, Morris,” I said, when he had finished, “on the grounds that he butted in and queered everything just as I was going to finance your show!” The house dick looked puzzled, grinned and departed. I caught a glimpse of the chap, Ferdie, in a distant doorway. And he was the son of a certain senator! Rinley assured me. A note was brought to Rinley. “I’ve got to see her,” he ex claimed. I knew that he meant the Lun ley dame. I went with him. Before he could speak I butted in. “Listen, sweetheart,” I said, “I’ll wire your sweetie about the sen ator’s son if you don’t kiss Morris good-night and go up to bed—and don’t think that 1 don’t know Black!” Miss Lunley looked at me steadily. Dolly had told me the name of her big-money friend. “And* I suppose you are a private detective he’s hired to watch me?" She put it as a question. |“.S/»ow Girls—Your Finish!" j “The secret is almost out. Bliss Lunley. It will be all out when some of my newspaper friends get the low-down on you and Ferdie and the tip, and a few other laughable things.” “It’s just my nerves.” she mut tered. “Nerve is the word. Good-night and no hard feelings. Don’t bother Morris, please, we’re figuring on the shortest route to New York one has to save the miles when walking.” “I ought to laugh, for I see It Is Eour idea of playing jokes on me, ut I’m tired ahd nervous.” We shook hands. “Your friend, the Dawson girl, may stay,” she assured me. When we went back I pretended that all Dolly had told meywas my own idea. “What you need Is more comedy and better comedy. You also need a star with a voice. The chances are that you got your leading lady with your backing.” “You’ve been talking with him!” Morris said, crossly to Dolly. “Not a word. How about your con tract with this angel. Is it down that you must star this Lunley won der?” “No.” “How much do you need to go Into rehearsal again, and get the voice and the comedy.” He named it. It wasn’t as much as I thought it would be. Without touching my own Income I had saved enough to practically cover that need. There was only one more night here. Morris canned his Fhllly date and took his outfit back to New York. I went along. Dolly and x went out for a party that night. Morris ahd his wife were with uj. We rah amuck into my big and famous brother. He had the pretty Uttle Bdit Evarts with him. “Where’s friend wife?” 1 whis pered. “Up country with her mother* who is sick, and don’t grin like that. Belle and I are Just eld pah,” he answered, sotto voice. We made a little party of it Some one, I thinx it was Morris Rinley’s wife, made some remark to the effect that she just knew Morris and Mr. Rushe would clean up big. “Keep away from the market,” Harry said to me, “unless you can afford my broker, and he won’t handle shoe clerk business.” “You’ve got it wrong. I’m taking a slice of Rinley’s new show, Har ry,” I explained. “Get Into the market—shut your eyes and stick a pin In the market list. Buy whatever you hit; it’s much safer,” Harry declared. Belle Evarts nudged Harry and looked at Dolly Dawson. She might just as well have shouted her thoughts. Dolly got It and turned red. “And if you think Bert Is doing it for me, you’re crazy,” Dolly said “ Just to prove it, I’m quitting the revised production.” “Whara the big Idea?” I said, crossly. Bell Evarts and Dolly were great pals a little later. Belle had evi dently seen her mistake and patched it up. But when Harry got me alone right after this he was mighty nervous and ugly. “Bush league, and show girls— your finish!’" he said, bitterly.

Anyone who is troubled in this way must use special precaution when eating starch to make sure that it will be entirely digested before it reaches the large intestines. This can be done by ob serving two precautions. The first is to chew the starch Well so that it is thoroughly permeated by the saliva. Much of this digestion will take place in the mouth and will be actually continued in the stomach, provided the stomach does not contain too much acid. If one eats only starchy foods, the acid gastric juices are .not stimulated to flow, and will allow the digestion of the starch to continue for some time. The second precaution is to avoid using, with the starches, foods which Would too grsitly stimulate the acid secretions of the stomach. When one eats cheese, meat, or other protein foods, the stomach immediately be gins to fill with the acid gastric juice which is essential to the digestion of proteins. The acid secretions of the stomach are also stimulated by the use of spices and by the taste of acid fruits or vinegar. For this reason it is well to avoid the use of meats, fresh fruits or vinegar at a meal containing starches. It is an advantage to use cooked and raw non-starchy vegetables whenever you use starchy foods. These vegetables supply bulk for the intestines and at the same time do not stimulate the formation of gastric juice as does meat. These vegetables combine readily with either a starch or a protein meal and should be used with both in order to provide the mineral salts and vitamins as well as to satisfy the appetite. Here are tome good specimen meals properly combined: Starch Meal One starchy food such as potatoes, lice, macaroni or bread, two or three cooked non-starchy vegetables, and one or two raw leafy vegetables. Good Protein Meal One protein food, such as meat, fish, eggs, milk or cheese, and two or three cooked non-starchy vegetables .and some raw salad vegetables; stew ed fruit may be used for dessert. Those who have strong digestive organs may not appreciate the value of the right food combinations be cause they sometimes eat meals which are very badly combined and appar- Colman, but only on condition that he never again see an actress with whom he has been keeping company.* By a planned “accident” Colman does see her again and complications fol low rapidly. f BARBS 1 «» - ■■ A man hot under the collar Is fit to be tied—firmly about the neck. * * ♦ “I’m spieling fine,” as Floyd Gib bons, the 217-word-a-minute man, might say. * * * A former president of Mexico is now teaching vocal lessons.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS j Acne Question: Mrs. B. M. writes: “My daughter has what the doctors term the worst case of acne they have ever seen. Her face is a mass of scars and pimples. She has fasted and dieted ic no effect until now we do not know what to do next, as various skin spe cialists have failed to help her.” Answer: Acne is sometimes very difficult to correct during a certain period of life and requires much time and persistent treatment to entirely overcome it. The skin should be cleansed In the morning and evening with warm water and soap. An enema should be used every day, and the patient should use large quanti ties of the bulky vegetables as out lined in my article on “Stuffing for Constipation.” Local treatments with the actinic or ultra-violet light are often helpful in toughening the skin but are not always necessary if the other instructions are followed care fully. The diet should not contain such rich foods as chocolate, cream, malted milk, candies, cheese, nuts, etc. Fasting in Disease Question: A. F. asks: “Has a wa ter fast any advantage over a fruit fast in certain conditions and dis eases? In using the tomato juice, lias the fresh tomato and its pulp any ad vantage over the canned tomato juice?” Answer: I have not found that the water fast has any advantage over a fruit juice fast except in a few cases where the patient has difficulty in handling the fruit juice. I sometimes give water fasts for three or four days before the fruit fast. Elimination seems to be facilitated if the pulp is uot used with the orange juice or to mato juice fast and, of course, the pulp should not be used if there is any inflammation of the intestines. There is no Advantage in using the raw tomatoes over the canned toma to juice. I KFYR * ♦ "» WEDNESDAY, APRIL 39 800 Kilocycle*—s4s.l Meters A.
