Logan Payne Co. CHICAGO NEW YORK BOSTON There is an old political saying that every time a public official makes an appointment he creates one ingratc and 10 enemies. It is rather a severe commentary on human nature as exemplified in politics, but there is some basis for it, as many an otherwise promising craft has foundered on the 6hoals washed up by disappointment at failure to receive political preferment. The interest which is taken in these appointments by persons whose concern does not appear on the surface may be indicated by the fact that several subscribers of The Tribune recently have inquired as to the appoint ments yet to be made by the present North Dakota ad ministration. One of the leading newspapers of the state, always regarded as friendly to the administration, recently com mented that its success or failure would depend largely upon the selection of men for appointments then in the offing. Since that time a capitol commission has been named and it has selected its secretary. In addition, an ap pointment has been made to the secretaryship of the in dustrial survey commission, created by the last legis lature. The high point of the appointment hurdle will not be reached until July, however, when two members of the board of administration and an entirely new highway commission will be appointed. Matters of such import ance frequently rub the fur from political hides and leave them bare to assault by their enemies. Even the little appointments are regarded as import ant from a political standpoint. Professional interest and jealousy sometimes are involved with regard to selections for so-called technical boards, and disappointments in those quarters may be as keen as in others directly con cerned with political patronage. Persons interested in seeing how such matters work out may get some idea by studying the list of appoint ments which will be made this year. It follows: Chief highway commissioner and two part time advisory commissioners. A mill and elevator commission of three mem bers to have charge of the state mill and elevator. Two members of the state board of administra tion to take the places of R. B. Murphy, whose resignation becomes effective July 1, and W. J. Church, whose term expires. One of these ap pointments will be for six years and the other for three years. A governmental survey commission of five members. Tax commissioner, July 1. Board of trustees soldiers’ home, July 1. Commissioner of immigration, July 1. State board of veterinary medical examiners, one member, July 1. Barbers’ examining board, one member, July 1. Trustees teachers’ insurance and retirement fund, July 1. State board of optometry, June 30. State board of embaimers, July 1. State board of chiropractic examiners, Jan 1. State board of nurse examiners, July 1. Master electrician, state board electricians, July 1. State board of accountancy. State board of medical examiners, three mem bers, Aug. 1. Veterans’ service commissioner, July 1. State board of hairdressers and cosmetologists, July 1. State superintendent criminal identification, July 1 Outstanding Public Service One wonders, sometimes, what constitutes outstand ing public service. There are thousands of men and women in public office today who discharge their duties faithfully and well and of those who hold office by election it is continually said by their friends that they are rendering outstanding public service. Those who serve by appointment or in more obscure positions do not need the advertising and do not get it. They are just jobholders—and like as not worried about whether their virtues would be properly appreciated in the event of a change in political administrations. Public officials are placed in office, of course, to render public service. If they fail to do that they are failures indeed. Public utility corporations have no other job than to serve the public and many of them are worthy of commendation, but their service is lim ited to a narrow field and they hardly ever get beyond it. The recent award of a Pulitzer prize to the Atlanta Constitution, however, for “outstanding public service" not only gives us an idea as to what constitutes this achievement but a glimpse of some of the difficulties involved. Here is what the “Constitution" did to win this recognition, as outlined by Editor and Publisher, a news paper trade journal. Three outstanding editorial crusades won the Pulitzer award for the most disinterested and meritorious public service during 1930 for the At lanta Constitution. The principal campaign was against a ring of corrupt politicians whose activities had pervaded the entire municipal government. Fighting single handed, the Constitution exposed the existence of this clique and demanded official investigation by the grand jury. The final result has not yet been written, but the ring-leaders of the political racketeers are now serving sentences in the Georgia chain-gangs, others have either pleaded guilty or have been convicted, and others are awaiting trial. Concurrent with the fight against the corrupt city hall ring, Clark Howell, editor and publisher of the Constitution and son of the paper's first noted editor, Capt. Evan P. Howell of reconstruc # tion days, brought pitiless publicity to bear against a secret order headed by another small An Independent Newspaper' Where Trouble Lies group who had organized it for personal gain and the fomenting of racial strife. A third salient was the Constitution’s demand for equal justice in the courts for white and col ored. in the case of a cold-blooded murder bf white men of a negro college president’s son. One can hardly disagree with the idea that to expose a corrupt political ring, attack and disperse an organi zation menacing the peace of a community and bring justice to a down-trodden race Is public service. And it is just as easy to see the spirit back of those crusades I for no one but a lover of Justice, freedom and liberty would have dared undertake any of the three cam paigns. What bitterness must have been engendered by that political expose. How the powers of privilege and cor ruption must have castigated and condemned this south ern newspaper for daring to do what institutions with less integrity would not even think of. What chances of unpopularity must this newspaper have taken in its campaign against an unrighteous or ganization. How unpopular must it have been to es pouse the cause of justice for a negro’s murder in the South where members of the black race still are regarded as little better than cattle. If one were to give a short definition of public ser vice by a newspaper as Illustrated by these three In cidents, it would be “to dare to risk condemnation and unpopularity for a righteous cause.” This has been true, of course, since the dawn of history. Almost anyone can remember someone who dared to stand for the right and who suffered for It. This South ern editor knew full well the power of the forces which he was attacking—yet he dared to do it. Not everyone can be a Clark Howell, but it is the actions of men such as he which justify to the fullest the constitutional guarantee of freedom of the press. There is no greater asset to any community than an honest and fearless j newspaper, even though it may not always espouse the popular side or cater to the established prejudices or en trenched commercial or political interests.

Vignette of Borah (New York Post) Of the many discriminating tributes paid to Senator Borah, one of the most Interesting is that from Strick land Gillilan, the humorist. He told Philadelphia Ro tarians the other day that the Idaho senator is one of the most brilliant men in America but that he cannot control his own vote. If he makes a motion and some one seconds it, he Immediately withdraws the motion. Spectators are continually astounded when they see him riding in Rock Creek park going in the same direction as his horse. Once more it is demonstrated that humor can be used for administering a wholesome dose of truth. Let the Government Do It (Kessinger’s Mid-West Review) Let the government do it! Let the government pay for it! Get it from the government! Have the government decide it! Let the government run the industries, fix the nrices and pay the bills! Some folks talk about the government and expect things from the government, and look up to, or down on, the government, as if it were some distinct, separate, living, breathing, omnipotent being, outside of, apart from; and entirely separated from aU the men and women who make up the population and the citizenship of the country. The government has no money, except the people’s money. It can pay out no money, except money it takes from the pockets and the labor of the people. Anything that the government does or decides, or runs, is done, decided, or run, by a man, or a few men, who temporarily are put in charge of running things and spending money. These men are human—all of them? some of them weak, a few dishonest, many incompetent. What is everybody’s business is nobody’s business. if you want to get a report of recommendations, ap point a committee. If you want to get it done—pick out one man and hold him responsible. Individual initiative, equality of opportunity and a representative, constitutional government, have med* this republic outstanding among the nations of the earth —a country that nobody wants to leave and everybody wants to come to. The American congress has to pass laws to keep for eigners from coming here. Foreign governments have to pass laws to keep their people at home, so the countries won’t be depopulated. That is the difference between paternalism, state so cialism, or monarchy, on the other side, and a represen tative republic on this side. Heretical Mr. Barnes (New York Times) Senators Watson and Smoot, replying indignantly to the suggestion of Julius Barnes, General Atterbury, Rep resentative Snell and other eminent Republicans of tariff revision downward, appear to have taken new ground in their defense of the Hawley-Smoot bill. When the measure was being debated, they insisted that it would remedy economic conditions, then not very good. It would, they said, reduce unemployment, increase foreign trade and strengthen business generally. Although the leading economists of the country warned the president that this prediction was not supported by probabilities, he signed the bill. Unemployment grew; foreign trade fell off; business got worse. Now the tarlfrs defenders deny that It has any responsibility for what happened. Ignoring the fact that the Hawley-Bmoot bill wrought none of the benefits claimed for it, Mr. Watson and others now contend that if it had not been passed things would be worse. They cannot prove that. But the econ omists can point to the dismal verification of the proph ecies and to the complete failure of the claims of the tariffs advocates. This contrast will undoubtedly ap peal to the mass of citizens. They will be more inclined to dwell upon the plain fact of their present condition than to take much stock in the estimate of the discred ited prophets of prosperity. When times are good and Democrats and Progressives clamor for tariff revision downward, it is simple to persuade the people that well enough had best be let alone. But in the face of the tariff fiasco, and the belief of such men as Mr. Barnes that immediate revision will help to remedy conditions, the warnings of Mr. Smoot, Mr. Watson and Under secretary Mills will not’ have much weight. That the Republicans who have openly called for a reopening of the tariff question include intimates of the president and wheel-horses of the party organization will be taken as proof of an existing industrial necessity which outweighs considerations of personal or political friendship. The Congress which will meet in December is not a body from which to expect orderly or clean-cut action. It will be difficult for either party to organize the House. To put a tariff program through It, even piecemeal. would seem to be Impossible. But amendments will be offered, and the Democrats may be able to draft, as a party, some complete schedules for 1933 campaign pur poses. That the divided Republicans can do even this grows less likely as the contending leaden are heard from.

Does your food look good and taste good? If your mouth waters while eating it is evidence that you are really hungry and that you will receive good from your food, but if you do not want to eat, or if you feel upset while eating, or soon afterward, then you are in no physical or mental condition to use food. You might think that eating is the simplest thing in the world to do, yet all sick people have much to learn about it. Very few people know how to make their minds help them while eating; and the proper frame of mind is very important for a good diges tion. The happy and contented mind is the best insurance for good diges tion. If the mind is worried, anxious or tired, then poor digestion will al ways follow. I I have just received a letter wherein a young lady asks about her boy friend. She says he is always angry, so angry he trembles. Then she tells me that his food simply won’t agree with him. Without knowing it she has explained why his food is dis agreeing with him. Anyone who is always angry, worried, fearsome, un happy, blue or depressed does not j need to tell me he has trouble digest | ing his food. You cannot keep up an unhealthful state of mind for very long and at the same time have a good digestion. The influence of the mind on di gestion is very powerful. You will know from your own experience that bad news and a meal coming at the same time will cause the meal to lie in your stomach like a lump of lead. Many people are in the state of mind where they are downhearted, anxious over whether they will get well or if they will digest the next meal. Worrying over indigestion makes it worse. I get thousands of letters from people who have “nerv ous" indigestion. Patients with this trouble may be able to digest then food some days but not others. On the days when the patient’s nerves get upset, so does the stomach. The young lady’s friend probably has this type of indigestion. She wants to know if it is serious. Prob ably the stomach trouble is not, but the anger is. As Dorsey said, “Man is a creature of habits, and a few bad ones can ruin him for life.” (Being angry or worried is a bad mental habit which can wreck any digestion. My object in pointing these things out to you is this: The mind is so THIS CURIOUS WORLD 'fitfZEO. &RO, ISOOCM\BD7& PO&*CT£D &/GAH&LAMS. Conversation Under Difficulties! Vl'/ /li4f Important in gaining good health that I want you to know how to get the help which the mind can give you. Let your mind help you get well. Dr. McCoy will gladly answer personal questions on health and diet addressed to him, care of The Tribune. Enclose a stamped addressed envelope for reply. I would like to drive this message home to you: If you are happy you will have a much better digestion than if you are worried or blue. I have watched thousands of pa tients during the fluoroscopic exam ination. The fluoroscope is an X-ray to use in studying the organs while alive and moving. We can study the stomach and intestines and see how they work. Under strong emotions digestion is slowed up, or it may stop completely for several hours. We know that an anger or fear emotion has this efect in the body because it causes the release of adrenalin into the blood. Adrenalin stops digestion. Those who are greatly disturbed men tally should not attempt to eat at that time, but wait until the mind is calm and happy. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Cracking Jaw Question: J. K. writes: “I suffer from a peculiar affliction and an ex tremely painful one. The jawbone becomes dislocated or so it feels. The pain is intense until it adjusts itself. After that, the area around the ear is sensitive and I cannot chew food or open the mouth with freedom. The trouble clears up for a time, although a cracking noise can be heard and felt most of the time. Answer: A cracking of the joints is usually caused by loose ligaments or a lack of synovial fluid around the joints. Sometimes what appears to be a cracking of the Jaw can be caused by the clogging of the eu stachian tube leading to the mouth and cars, which is stretched when the mouth is used, or the jaw is moved, and produces a cracking. The pres ence of the sensitive area around the ear would tend to indicate that this condition might be the cause.

TARIFF IS TOO HIGM,~AM> YOU SHOULD OUICEL THE. war debts/ , If combination with other foods are strawberries the most healthful?” Answer: Strawberries are consid ered an acid fruit And may be used with a meal of non-starchy vege tables or with milk. It is a good plan to occasionally make an entire meal of them. They contain more iron than any other other fruit. Dermoid Cyst Question: Mrs. R. asks: a dermoid cyst?” Answer: A dermoid cyst is a con genital cyst containing bone, hair, teeth, etc. They do not often in. crease in size, but it is usually bes to have them removed. TODAY IS THEvf JJesp PROTEST AT ODESSA On May 13, 1917, a Jewish demon stration took place at Odessa, Russia, where some thousands gathered in front of the Rumanian consulate to protest against recent ill-treatment of Jews in Rumania. One of the delegates elected by the crowd presented to M. Grecianu, the consul general, a written protest against the reported acts of violence. The consul general telegraphed the protest to Jassy and communicated to *.he delegates a telegram from Jassy stating that the whole Jewish ques tion was to be dealt with in the cur rent session of the Rumanian Parlia ment. Just two days prior to the protest at Odessa a deputation of Rumanian Jews called on King Ferdinand and presented him with a note beggihg him to take the native Jews under his protection. Accompanying the note was an appeal which the native Jews had distributed to Jassy on May 6. Probable lament this summer: “It’s a great life if you don’t week-end.” A Texas man is walking around the world backward. There’s one man, at least, who puts himself a step for ward every backward step he takes. A New York woman suggests a ‘ traffic dance” as a means of avoid ing death and injury. The only trouble is that it is liable to make a “hit” with the motorists. The cruiser Chicago, which is soon to become the flagship of the U. S. fleet, has a black goat named A 1 Capone for mascot. A black sheep might have been more appropriate. No, Dorothy, the Wilkins sub marine crew won’t drink anti-freeze no matter how cold it is up at the Pole this summer.

For the first time his famous brother has a chance to watch him hurl. IT was no place for me to have jumping nerves, at my first appearance off the bench, with the Chester team of the big Tri-State League. ' „ I realized that well enough, just as I realized that for some unknown, and perhaps uncanny, reason my brother Harry had arrived to watch me play for the first time. I didn’t know, then, that he had planned to run dow* to see me and then cover the jump by airplane. “He’s here to see me flop,” I thought, “and to tell me i again that I’ll never make a really big player.” It was so unusual to be nervous/* as I was at a moment, when I should have been as cool as cracked ice, that it made me worse than ever, i The umpire was giving me the signal not to delay, But send down the ball. I thought of my old scheme that I used in my early days when I got rattled or nervous. I deliberately ignored the man at bat. I made myself see the old “target” down at the plate such as I used when I began my solo practice. , That helped. I had been so long winding up that when I slowly un wound and scratched my neck 1 heard some of the fans voice their disgust and annoyance. Then the ball went down. The umpire called it a “ball,” and that helped because it made me sore. I knew well enough that it had cut the platter sufficiently to be a strike. I sent down the sharp low drop and the lad with the willow swung around with nothing to his credit except a dent in the air. , The second one was like the first. The lad grinned. He made a swing again but it was an out drop that time. As he slammed down his stick and walked back to the bench my nervousness was over. I felt a big surge of relief. Three in a row went down and I had hurled ten times. By rights I should have tossed only nine, for that first one was a clean strike. However, what the umpire said had to go. | Too Confident j And I had fair luck with the stick, getting a clean single, stealing sec ond and coming home when Jim Pearl cracked out a three-bagger. Beginning of the fifth and now we were three to Allison’s pair. Things looked better. I felt better than ever. I had another stubborn fit on. I believed that Harry was there to give me the laugh. He had admitted to me that he didn’t believe I was fast enough for the Tri-State League. That was last winter when I had flaunted my con tract in his face. So I was on edge. I had to do bet ter than my best—l had to out-do myscli t Prom the bench I threw him a glance now and then, when waiting my turn at bat. He grinned at me each time, but his grin didn’t mean a thing. He might have been con gratulating me on my “luck” in the fourth frame, or it might have been a derisive grin. Crackeri, which was the real name or Allison’s star batsman, found me in the next frame after I had downed two. He found me fair and square when I had sent down my most powerful ball. It came straight /or me, and I tried to reach it, fear ins I did I couldn’t hold it. I felt the wind from it as it sailed over my fingers. Then I heard a yell before I had time to turn. My little friend. Mike Slavin, had sailed up as though he had springs on his feet. He hung to the pill although he landed on the back of his neck. The little devil s?t it all O. K. i had my lesson. Never again would I give Cracken a straight ball, no matter how speedy I could make it. It was Hank Poster, our manager, who told me afterwards that I sure had speed on it, otherwise it would have gone out of the field. And so we played up to the last frame. Three to two in our favor. It was getting dark. The perfect day had changed late in the after noon, and black clouds made it al most impossible to see. At the end of the ninth Allison had a run. It was a tie uid too dark for a decisive inning. In many a game we have had it was called because of rain, but never in my experience on account of darkness. However, it was good pub licity for us all. Our local papers were full of it. Great baseball was expected that season, the writers de clared, with Allison and Chester so evenly matched. I came in for some praise. “It seems.” one writer expressed himself, “that this new hnrler, Bert Rushe, wasn’t so much of a £2°^ i ‘L as .“any thought. He and Pink Davis make a strong pair of tossers. He has a flock of curves that kept them guessing, and his only break was when he thought he could fool Cracken with a straight speed bail.” All this followed later. As soon as the game was called I made a rush over to see Harry. J Talk With Harry | “What’s happened—any trouble?” I asked. Nope—going on in a plane, I’ll he on hand ahead of the team. Thought I’d drop down, and see you,” he explained. VTe went to my hotel for dinner. The reporters flocked about Harry as usual, but after a while we got a *’ ayand had a table by ourselves. “What’s the verdict?” I asked, after he nad talked for ten minutes about various things and never mentioned the game once. “Why, i told you they were fast players, Bert,” he said. “I know you did. I found you were right. You also told me they were too fast for me. Were you right about that?” “It depends, Bert. If you can keep up today’s pace you’re plenty good for ’em. If this is just a freak spurt, watch out.” “Meaning that if you ever once admitted that I could play good ball it would just about choke you, what?" Harry studied me. “No, Bert; you have the wrong Idea.. I’m trying to let *'ou down easy. You played such good ball that I’m afraid you can’t keep it up. Your stick work wasn’t bad at “But my hurling?” “We-e-ll,” he said with irritating slowness as he buttered a roll, "your pitching is better than good—it amazed me ” "Well—well, you amaze me.” I gasped. “It’s one thing to practice with you, but quite another to see you in the box in a real game, an important ?;ame as this opening one was to you oiks. Bert, I thought you’d get rat tled. You’ve got some tricks that are great and you used your head. The way you threw that base stealer out and started a double play was real baseball.” For the' first time In more thr-i five years my star brother had ad mitted that I could play baseball. He had done more than that, he said it was “better than good.” That mirp wwH> nu hmnwv *-~aßrrr*"g I went over to the landing field and saw him board the plane with his friend, who was a mail carrier. When I drove back to my hotel Hank Foster was there with Darwin. We went over to the office. Chal mers had been chatting with Harry during the game and Harry never once quoted him. Probably Chal mers never told him of our run-in the first day I hit Chester. “Can you keep that up all season?” Chalmers asked when I blew in. I looked at him reproachfully. “You know I can’t. We all have our off days, and then our off weeks. If I could keep that up and was sure of it, I’d be in my brother’s outfit,” I told him. Hank Foster, our manager, went over to Chalmers and said, “Pay me.” It seems that Chalmers had said, after the game, that I would have a swelled head. Hank bet him that I wouldn't. Chaim Sr's bet that I would assure him I could play like that every day. We “played the came over” for a while and then I went back to my hotel for some rest. We were to play that tenth inning before the second game started! It might or might not have been Sood ethical baseball, but it was usiness. The grounds were never so filled as on this second day. Be cause we were so evenly matched and the papers had made so much of it, and because of the extra and decisive inning to be played, the crowds sure turned out. No matter what many may say or think, it certainly does pep up the ball players when there is a big and excited crowd of fans out to see the game. Manager Foster got Pink Davis and myself together. “Which one of you wants to pitch this tenth inning, the ’left over’ from darkness?” he asked. I looked at Pink. He looked at me. “Let ‘Handsome’ do it,” he said. The boys had started calling me ‘Handsome’ because Jim Pearl had nicknamed me that the first day we met. "Let Pink do it,” I answered. “Toss for it,” Hank ordered. There was no argument. It spoke volumes for Manager Foster’s es timate of Davis and myself, it meant that he considered one of us as good as the other. I won the toss, to my half worry and half delight. I’m here to tell the universe that when I trotted into the box and fanned three I was mighty happy. . Then they walked Pearl and fannedthree of us, myself included.
