Logan Payne Co. CHICAGO NEW YORK BOSTON Members of the American Legion Auxiliary will ap pear on Bismarck's streets Saturday with little bunches of red paper flowers In their hands. The flowers will be poppies, which seem to have become accepted as the floral emblem of the World war and for the same reason that the laurel and the willow were emblematic of the blue and the gray after the Civil war. There is hardly a child of this generation who is not familiar with Col. Mcßae's poem “In Flanders Fields” just as the children of another generation committed to memory the touching stanzas of “The Blue and the Gray.” It is to be hoped and confidently expected that the public will show its appreciation of the activities of the American Legion Auxiliary by purchasing these little paper flowers liberally. Each one has been made by a veteran of the world war and the funds received will go to further the work of the American Legion Auxiliary among these honored unfortunates and the orphans of war veterans. The public should buy them, too, for the sake of the memories they will stir up. If one looks for it he can find the love, the patriotic devotion, the self-sacrifice and the heroism which war engenders concealed in th** petals of a simple little flower. If he looks for it he can find the hatreds, the vices, the tortures and the agonies which war brings also. All of these are within the memory of the average citizen, for the war is still less than 13 years old. As it buys and wears these flowers, America should think of the beds of pain to which thousands have been committed by reason of the war, as well as of the thrill ing days when it was in progress. Pacifists have accused the American Legion of being militaristic and, if that is so, the American Legion Aux iliary probably is composed of militaristic women. It is not true, of course, for if the nation agrees on nothing else, it is certain that the men of the American Legion and the women of its auxiliary constitute the best in surance policy the United States could have. They stand as a bar to national cowardice and dishonor and as a bar against national aggression. They stand for sanity in international relations. And they should be thanked for bringing back to us memories, not only recollections of the dark days of the war but of those men who lie, unable to care for them selves. in the veterans’ hospitals. We are too prone to forget these men, some of whom have made for their country the sacrifice entailed by existing in a state of living death. It is sad that we must be reminded of them, but the fact remains that we must. The American Legion Auxiliary deserves the thanks of the nation for thus forcefully calling their plight to our attention. The battle of the vacation resorts is on with enough spoils for distribution to assure victory to all of the combatants. This annual battle is waged to decide whether the summer vacationists will go to the moun tains, to the seashore, automobile touring, to the summer cottage, camping, transcontinental railroad sightseeing or touring abroad. Next fall it will be learned as here tofore that the vacationists have gone to all of these places There are some people who enjoy going to the same resort, in the same %ay and at the same time every year, but the greater portion of the American populace has an insatiable appetite for the novel and strange in vacation resorts as well as in everything else. So nine out of ten of us will go to the seashore one year, to the mountains another year and motor-touring in still an other year. Another phase of the summer vacation is that strange, unexplainable urge which makes everybody at vacation time wish to get away from the scene of his labors. Peo ple who live at the seashore 50 weeks in the year go to the mountains or abroad at vacation time. The moun tain dwellers flock down to the seashore resorts on the vacation excursions and the European and Asiatic prob ably come to America, while Mr. and Mrs. United States are vacationing abroad. A definition for the word “va cation" might well be “a sojourn away from home,’’ al though Webster’s gives it as “an intermission from stated employment.” The only available explanation for the vacation wan derlust is the propensity of the American to become bored with his surroundings and to crave new “hunting grounds.” Perhaps it is a twentieth century out-cropping of the pioneer instinct of the frontier-pushing fore fathers. So important is the personal equation of high execu tives that financial-rating books may in the future adopt special notations to indicate the capacity of the men at the top. In many cases these men are so well known for their achievements that any newspaper reader might be trusted to gite them a fair rating. Ford, Schwab, Owen D. Young, the late Judge Gary are outstanding examples of executives; in this class; but there are thousands cf lesser leaders, men to high places, whose measure of genius is an unknown quantity to those who put money into the shares of their corporations. Annual reports may serve as rough-and-ready indications of their abil ity; but at best they tell only part of the story and they do not always tell it In a version that may be taken at face value. Balance sheets show tangible assets and liabilities to a penny. They even offer rough estimates as to such in tangibles as the value of patents and goodwill, but they are silent w to the all-important factor of management. How, Indeed, could they be otherwise? Who, for ex ample, ooold appraise In dollars and cents the cash value of Henry Ford’s business judgment, his ability for shap ing sound policies, his technical knowledge and his prac £ tical experience?

He Plays the Game Is golf going to take the place of baseball as our fore most national sport? You may scoff at the suggestion. But sporting goods manufacturers estimate that at least 2,000,000 Ameri cans are golfers. And that is only a beginning. Anyone with his eyes open realizes that a golf craze is sweeping the country like a prairie fire. In popularity, golf Is growing far faster than baseball grew in its early days. For every one that plays golf, there are five who would be playing if they could. In the main, golf still is a rich man’s game. The price of getting into a good golf club is prohibitive for the average man—and usually intentionally so, to keep the membership “exclusive.” The scarcity of golf courses for the person of moder ate means drives home the principle that America has made practically no provisions for recreational sports for the people. The baseball fan rarely plays the game himself. He usually sits and watches some one else play. For this reason, baseball In America is a form of theatricals rather than a sport played by the rank and file. You do not, however, find golf enthusiasts sitting back and watching other players—except an occasional star. The golfer is not a grandstand loafer. He gets out and plays the game himself. Can This Succeed? Approval by Prohibition Director Woodcock of the “prohibition advisory research council” and its plan gives it a sort of semi-official status, but it is not another Wickersham commission and its activities and findings will have no political significance. Ten academe leaders, comprising the council, will en courage the faculties of leading colleges to propose phases of the prohibition problem as topics for graduate theses. In this way it is hoped to concentrate the best brain power of young America on the nation s most perplexing social and political problem. An early answer to the riddle of the eighteenth amend ment is not to be expected from this research work. That is not the council’s purpose. It promises no pan acea, no miracle, but it fully expects to inject into the discussion of prohibition a little more reason and scien tific information. The way is open to the council for a career of useful ness. Prejudice and bias will close that way at the out set. Can the council find students with open minds, or, at least, with minds capable of being opened by exact knowledge? No matter what the researchers discover their conclu sions will never find universal acceptance, such being the nature of the subject of their search. But a little profound study will not aggravate the situation. The drought of 1930 has been called the worst peace time calamity in the history of the United States. In addition to the federal and state relief extended to the sufferers, the American Red Cross is feeding a million or more persons, residing mostly on farms in 735 coun ties in 21 states.

Real Family Life (Duluth Herald) The Duluth Diocesan council of the National Council of Catholic Women, in annual convention in Duluth yes terday, passed strong resolutions urging a constructive program of family education that will offset the invasions of so-called modern ideas that threaten the very exist ence of the Christian ideal of family life as America has known it. These women had in mind such things as birth con trol, companionate marriage and easy divorce. It is good to see somebody standing up for decent fam ily life, and it was time that somebody did. Clean, whole some family life has been the nursery of American strength and power, and it can be impaired only at the risk of the gravest hurt to American ideals and to the future of the race and the nation. Probably the idea that these new notions are modern is a mistake. They represent selfishness and self-in dulgence, which are as old as Eden. But all through human history they have destroyed the individual who cultivated them and the nation in which too large a proportion of its people were given to such practices. The America that we have known cannot survive the poison of self-indulgence and free-and-easy marriage and divorce, and those who take a stand against them are upholding the highest ideals and the largest inter ests of the nation. What About Safety? (New York World-Telegram) Six hundred and fifty pilots are flying 133,000 miles a day on America's scheduled air mail and passenger lines. They are the best of the country’s 15,000 licensed pilots. On them directly depends the safety of hun dreds of passengers and tons of mail every day and night. Yet, like children, they should be seen and not heard. At least that is the way their employers, the air line operators, appear to feel about it. The operators have just vetoed a proposed conference between these pilots and the Department of Commerce. The government had expected to reap valuable sugges tions for the regulation and maintenance of the air lines out of these pilots’ knowledge—the knowledge of ex perience, gained only by riding at the controls day after day and night after night over the airways. The Commerce Department asked the operators if they would send pilot representatives to the conference. A few agreed. Others said they would not. The majority didn’t even bother to answer the Department’s letter. The meeting has been cancelled. At this stage of flying the combined wisdom of every body in the business is not too much. The pilot—the human element —is admitted to be still the most im portant factor in aviation. For the operators to close their ears to his suggestions seems to us a rather stupid form of bigotry. The British Drift Toward Protection (Saturday Evening Post) After the war the British established a parliamentary act for the safeguarding of essential industries, mean ing industries developed during the war and regarded as essential to military independence. It was a special form of protection. Gradually the list of articles In cluded -was extended. Production costs became one cri terion of protection. The'Conservative Party gradually became converted to protection, under the guise of Em pire preference. Finally out-and-out protectionists ap peared among the industrialists and bankers. The Lib erals remained free traders, but their number was small. The Labor Party remained for free trade in foodstuffs, but felt otherwise in respect of manufactures. Finally, the business depression has given a further Impetus to the protection policy. Recently two of the outstanding economists of Great Britain have come out for tariff for revenue—J. M. Keynes and Sir Josiah Stamp. Both were classed as Liberals. Tariff for revenue Implies a limited protection, but still protection. They advocate It as a method of raising prices and thus stimulating business and increas ing employment. These seems to be some juggling of terms. Free traders hope It is not a desertion, but only a temporary compromise. The economists are somewhat mystified by the development. Protectionists regard all tariff duties as protection, whatever the name. Time will tell. In the meantime ountries of Europe and the Americas will watch the evolution with interest, perhaps not unmixed with apprehension. THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE. FRIDAY, MAY 22, 1931 TO xi s>/ "AND vjhat is so rare As A day ‘ »N JUMEIi Study Indicates Cocoa Made With Milk Is Less Harmful to Child Than Tea or Coffee By DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal of the American Med ical Association, and of Hygeia, the Health Magazine It has been a well defined impres sion in the past that tea, coffee, and caffein-containing drinks are bad for children. On the other hand, there nas been a general belief that cocoa is not harmful. On this subject. Dr. Lydia Rohr-*'; points out that few, if any, experi ments have been performed directly on children to establish these im pressions scientifically. Most of the evidence is derived from studies on animals. It is, of course, known that the ac tive principles of tea and coffee, namely, caffein and theobromine, are drugs which in sufficient amounts produce definite effects on the body, the effect depending on the amount given, the way it is given, the condi tion of the person to whom it is giv en, and similar factors. Caffein drinks stimulate energy production, speed up the breathing rate, and increase the activity of the kidneys. It is known also that continued use of tea and coffee tends to produce tolerance, so that one can drink more without be ing affected.

The energy needs of the child are greater than those of the adult, and it is not advisable to replace the food that it should take by substances without considerable food value. Drinks that stimulate the metabolism increase the energy reeds even more. Coffee in the diet tends to replace milk and other food substances of much greater import ance. Cocoa contains theobromine, a chemical substance closely related to caffein. It is believed that it differs from caffein only in having a greater effect on the kidneys and a less effect on the central nervous system. It would, therefore, be expected that cocoa would have the same effect on the child as tea and coffee, although :t might have less tendency to pro duce sleeplessness. Cocoa made with water and sugar has just about the strength of a cup of coffee. Cocoa made with milk is equivalent to milk llavored with two tablespoons of cof fee brew. As a conclusion to these considera tions, Doctor Roberts feels that cocoa made with milk is likely to be less harmful to the child than tea or coffee, but that cocoa made with wa ter is but little different than tea or coffee. what Is called an extravagant buyer, yet I can manage very comfortably on twenty thousand a year.—Lilyan Tashman. * * * Industrial leadership more than anything else was responsible for present depressed conditions, and therefore, should lead the way in re storation of prosperity.—(Dolby M.

ANPERSp REPLY TO HEFLIN On May 22. 1917, President Wilson wrote a letter to Representative Heflin of Alabama expressing sur prise that the president’s position re garding the attitude of the United States in the war against Germany had been misunderstood. The letter was written in response to one by Mr. Heflin to the president in which Heflin called attention to speeches made in the House by two representatives who claimed that the president had said that the United States had “no real grievance against Germany.” Heflin, therefore, suggested that the president, to correct a false im pression, make a disavowal of the at titude accredited him by the two con gressmen. In reply the president wrote, in part: “It is incomprehensible to me how any frank and honest person could doubt or question my position with regard to the war and its objects. I have again and again stated the . . .. wrongs which the Imperial German government has perpetrated against the rights, the commerce, and the citizens of the United States There is no hate in our hearts for the German people, but there is a resolve ..... to overcome the pretensions of the autocratic government which acts upon purposes to which the Ger man people have never consented.” ♦ *« !

Now that the characters talk, audiences are no longer satisfied to see them scamper across the prairies on spirited horses or perform hazardous leaps across precipices without rhyme or reason. A conspicuous example of the new type of melodrama is “Desert Venge ance,” Columbia’s all-talking feature starring Buck Jones, which comes to the Capitol Theatre tomorrow. The plot deals mainly with the regenera tion through love of a desperate bandit. Many scenes are laid in Sky fields, an old ghost city, high up in the mountains. Here reigns a des perado as king of all he surveys. He has hi-jacked the loot of a rival bandit lord and prepares to repel an invasion. But a girl, a very unusual character, enters the situation, and as usual the issue becomes vastly more complicated.

SYNOPSIS: Bert Rnahe gives npcollege and everything In of becoming a big league pitcher.. This la against the wishes of nis famous older brother, Home Run Harry, star batsman of the big leagues. In his sixth year with minor leagues Bert had made a fortune on the side and had many adventures; has been successful in all except winning the girl he loves. In an Important game Bert attempts the biggest grandstand stunt a pitcher can do—has the outfielders called in to the bench and attemptstoretirethe side with all the field unguarded. He fans two players but the third smacks the bait I COULD have bet big money that my heart jumped right up and choked me when Jim Pearl swatted the ball. Jim was a heavy hitter. . ... It was bad enough to have him hammer the old pill when the outfielders were all on the job. But I was trying out the crazy stunt of having the outfield all called on to the bench and trying to shut out the side with only base men and short. Naturally when Jum swatted the ball It made me sick. It was the eighth I had sent down In this Inning and the first to gel smacked. But one smack of the ball send ing it out into the far field with nc one there was sufficient to spoii everything and make a Joke of me I know I held my breath when Jim hit the ball, but my eyes fol lowed it. No such luck as a foul! It was low and well inside the line. Saved! Something tall and red-headed flashed out. It was Red Flannlgan on first bag. Tall, skinny Red—once my bitter enemy. He shot up at an angle and hooked on to the ball. That was all there was to it. : He stood on the sack, grinning. Jim Pearl stopped sprinting, shook his head sadly. The side was retired—thanks to able assistance from Red Flannigan. The shouting was terrific. Hadley, being clever, rushed us to the bench ready for our chance. Pudge Waters was the first man up and he chuckled and pranced and popped the ball down between first and second bags too high for the fielder to reach with a step-ladder. Pudge was on third bag before he was signaled to rest. Cracken followed with a single, as if finding Pink Davis was our easiest stunt. Pudge trotted in. And I had the luck to single. It was a riot then—the‘Chesters' time had come—they were all shot They had held up beautifully de spite their celebration of the night before with red Honor, but now they were sliding. We gathered in four nice fat runs. And so at the beginning of the seventh it was 6 to 6 and every fan knows that it isn’t the low-scored close games that always supply the most excitement. I went into the box feeling more confident than ever before. I didn’t send out the fielders again, of course, but I tried to pretend to myself that they were out. One man was out on a foul, one got to first and the next two were down. We pranced in to add to our six. This time one of our new players was up first and made a nice clean hit, low and slow enough to get him to first before the right fielder could get up to the ball. Red Flannigan was up next Red was grinning. Usually he scowled. Any one might have believed that the ball was just what he had asked for. It came down with one of Pink’s famous twists but Red had seen them before. He drove it so high, wide and handsome that our boy on first trottel around with Red at his heels. How those things happen no one can explain, but it ripped those boys apart We piled up another four. Ten to six for us with two more innings to go. \ Poor Hank Foster, as bright and likable a manager as any player ever had, was fast losing his goat— he was prancing around and say ing things to the men he seldom said, things that rattled them more than they helped. Jim Pearl' got a two bagger off me. but he never got beyond that although he tried desperately to steal # They "rallied a little then and held us down to a run. One more frame, eleven to six. I felt that the Chesters simply couldn't overcome that. Our visiting rooters were doing what the Chester lads had started, yelling, in measured time, “Bum bum —bum” and so on and on, and also doing the tom-tom stuff with their feet. It didn’t help our rivals any more than the Chester fans had helped us, and it mighty near broke us up, along with the way they started to slaughter us. But now it was the other way around. A speed ball of mine, the first of the ninth, was smacked heav ily and saUed beautifully right in to the second baseman’s paws. The second man couldn't con nect at all. The third man tried to whang it up into Canada somewhere, but started it for the moon instead. The catcher didn’t have to move more than a foot to take it in. And the game was over. After the Game j I beat it for the dugout. The re action of it all had got me. I was all in and it was more from the nervous strain than physical exer tion, because I had pitched nine innings and felt better than I did this time. Some of the rejaorters came down with Hadley as f was dressing. “Where did you get the crazy Idea?” one of them asked me. “Well, it isn’t original, a chap out West did it, and once Rube Waddell did the same thing. In both instances the ball never got out of the infield,” I explained. “You and Rube Waddell, eh?” and the reporter laughed. “Yeah? And you and Horace Greeley, eh?” When I pulled that one a yell went up. The reporter was a nice boy. He got red and said he didn't mean to make any crack. However, he had every right to, be cause it was one swell-headed stunt for me to have done and it prob ably would have been better for me if it had failed. I had agreed to see Chalmers. He came in just before I left. We were to remain and play the third game in Chester. When next we played those boys, two of the three would be in Allison. “I wish you had done that on my team last summer,” was his greet ing. . “Ho, do you?” and I grinned at him. “You know Hank Foster would never have let me try it.” “Perhaps not. Hadley just told me he did it against his better Judy • ment.” “So did I,” I confessed, “but it looked like a good place to stop the murder—your boys were tying us up.” We chinned for a while, and when he got a chance he said, “i’ll give you a ring tonight. I may want you to come over to my place. I’m going to get at the bottom of that.” teT&Z; tt! Nebon jot jealous without any reason,” I protested. ~Tvt given oat a statement that we got our plans mixed and each waited for the other until it was too late. It sounds rather fishy, but it’s the best I can do.” ‘‘lt’s good enough. I don’t think many know about that fake letter, I agreed. Red Flannigan and Hadley went with me the short distance to the hotel. I felt mighty foolish over the way so many crazy fans were crowding about me. Once inside the hotel and up to my room, Flannigan dropped in. He suggested a drink. I wanted one, but decided not to break my rule. “It was a swell stop you made, Flannigan,” I said. “Aw, jees, I had to, didn’t I?” was his answer. “I suppose ydu thought I was crazy." “I thought it was too much gran’ stand stuff until I tumbled to what happened after—it shot ’em all to an’ that was what you was up to.” "Right,” I said. "You sure got me into swell com pany and where they pay big money.” It was his way of thanking me. Mr. Hadley told me, when we went down to dinner, that some of the newspaper boys had sent the story by wire all around. “Oh Lordy,” I groaned, “my brother will see it and be convinced that I’m a nut.” "Listen, Bert," and Mr. Hadley leaned over to me, “when a man succeeds he’s always right. It’s only when he fails that he’s wrong. You can't convince the fans now but what it was exactly the .*ight thing to do. If Pearl had whanged the ball over into the far end of the outfield, then they would have for ever condemned you for it. There’s no answer to that—it’s just human nature.” That night, to get a little ahead of events, I got a wire that created a big laugh. It read:— “Pay you any money to pitch for the Matteawans, in the Nut league.” The wire came from Detroit. Meet Mrs. Nelson The Gothams had been playing the Tigers in their home city that day. The wire came from my brother, I was sure of it. It was while we were finishing dinner that Hadley got a telephone call. When he got back he said, “Chalmers.” “What’s the latest?" “Look here, Bert—l’m not going to have you fussed. If you want to drop it, say so. Chalmers wants you to come over to his place.” “Well, he told me he might tele phone and might ask me over. I might as well see it through,” I agreed. ‘I don’t know, I don’t want you get fussed up,” Hadley protested. “Trying to wrap me in pink cot on?” I asked, with a laugh. “I want you to take things easy; can’t afford to have you worried,’* he declared. “I’ve got nerves enough to stand anything since Jim Pearl smacked the pill out today,” I told him. So we went over to the home of Chalmers together. As soon as we got In Chalmers looked at me rather keenly. “Do you want to meet Mrs. Nel son?” he asked, adding, “she is in the other room—she seems to want to see you right away.” “Now, look here, Chalmers—l won’t have Bert upset,” Mr. Hadley declared. “It isn’t going to upset me, I’ll meet her, face to face,” I declared —as I got up to go to the ad joining room to see the woman. Who is the woman who caused Bert all this trouble? The mysterious lady has a sur prise up her sleeve which will be revealed in tomorrow’s install ment of this exciting baseball serial—“ The Pitching Fool.” (Copyright, 1929, Oraphic Syndicate, Inc.)
