LEVINGS & BREWER (Incorporated) CHICAGO NEW YORK BOSTON Repeaters Bismarck again is extending greet- ings to a pair of champions. It is an old story In the case of Paul Cook, who bids fair to be North Dakota's Bobby Jones, having estab- lished a new mark by winning three state golf championships in a row. Nevertheless, the city rejoices at this demonstration of prowess by a local lad on a foreign field. It lets the coifing fans of North Dakota know that Bismarck is to be reckoned with when titles are being passed around end gives all of us a chance to say: "That's the kind of folks we produce out in this part of the state.” The same thing holds true ir> only slightly lesser degree for Nadine O'Leary, who flashed across the hori zon of the women's golf tournament a year ago like a meteor of the links. Miss O'Leary had a harder battle this year than last, but demonstrated that she has the spirit which makes a real champion by coming from be hind to score a notable victory. It was much the same situation which Cook faced manfully last year when he plugged along behind until the last few holes of a gruelling match. Unless the competition grows keen er or she loses her skill, Miss O'Leary should win many another champion- j ship for Bismarck and may yet give! her cousin a race for honors in the! consecutive championship marathon, j Congratulations are due, also. to ! Tom O’Leary, father of Nadine and uncle of Paul, who taught them their "game.” r Never a champion himself, O'Leary'seems to have that still rarer quality, the gift of making cham pions. For him the thrill is not only that of a teacher w’ho sees his star | pupils demonstrate their prowess, it J is the deep-rooted satisfaction which] comes to every parent who sees his * child achieve heights which he, him-' self, never could attain. Boys Turn Builders The Boys’ Club Federation of America, which represents some 250,- 000 youngsters in 134 cities, reports that boys are not Quite as keen on collecting things as they used to be. They still collect stamps, to be sure; but for the most part seem to prefer to make things. Model airplanes, toys and radio sets seem to be the most popular with these juvenile builders. This shift in interest seems to us to be a healthy thing. Collecting is a rather barren hobby. If he col lects stamps, of course, he may learn a little something about geography— but the lad who treasures up street car transfers, match covers or cigar bands isn't doing himself very much good. Building things is something else. Jt gives a boy a training, an apprecia tion for skillful craftsmanship, that will mean much to him In later years. Long Term Credit About & decade ago the automobile Industry was in a bad way. The mar ket was dwindling. No one wss buy ing. Everyone who could afford to buy an auto had one, and the mil lions of people who wanted cars had neither cash nor credit to buy t.tym The auto makers, thereupon, went out and turned these millions into automobile buyers by adopting a courageous new system of long-term credit. Depression left the industry, to return only when boom times led the manufacturers to oversoil even this new and enlarged market.. In the current issue of the Maga zine of Wall Street, Charles Bene dict proposes that American produc ers of raw materials take a leaf from the auto industry’s book and create new markets for themselves—not at home, this time, but overseas. Kg makes a good case for his pro posal. Poland, for example, needs raw totton badly but lacks the credit with Milch to buy it; why, he asks, should i pot an Junaeitoaa cotton growers* co ibfwratft* group propose to deliver to Poland a year's supply of cotton at ithe current market price, under terms i %> kfT • by which payment could be made in! one to 10 or even 20 years? What is true of Poland is true of China. Benedict predicts that this action would boost cotton prices, open new markets and bring pros perity back to the cotton grower. The same thing, he adds, could be done with other raw materials such as wheat, copper and corn. In the end he believes that the risks in herent in such a process would be overcome and the way back to world prosperity would be found. The whole program seems sound. The most striking thing about the present depression is that :t la caused, not by scarcity, but by sur pluses. There exist plenty of poten tial customers for the surplus goods of the earth. The one great problem is to make it possible for them to buy. Men will probably be talking about the lessons taught by the World war for a good many years. But Newton D. Baker the other day expressed the matter in his convocation ad dress at the Williamstown Institute of Politics about as well as anyone ever will. "The first great revelation of the World war,” said Baker, "was that the strongest nation, under modern conditions, dies, like a bee, wnen It uses its sting. The second great revelation of the World war was un doubtedly the universality of the dis aster.” And the second point Mr. Baker amplified as follows: "The song of the victor, as nc con templated his victim sitting in the ashes cf desolation, died in his throat when he remembered the cost of his victory. . . . There were too many widows’ weeds mingled with the torch bearers in the victory parade, too many ‘mutlles’ seeking limited re admission to factories and workshops, particularly there was too much dis location in the processes of interna tional industry and finance to permit any nation to feel itself safe from a overwhelming share in the common disaster.’’ Intelligent men have been saying precisely these things over since the armistice. Except that he put it much more forcefully, Baker said nothing new. But the amazing thing is that \vc seem to be unable to shape our policies in accordance with these very evident truths. Everyone admits that war is about as costly to the victor as the van quished—but every nation keeps right on preparing for future wars. Fleets, armies and air forces continue to grow; admirals and generals continue to talk about "security”; congresses and parliaments continue to insist on "adequate defense”—and these mocking truths continue to be ignored. Our big task today is to understand that the old use of force in inter national affairs simply doesn’t work no longer. When we once make our selves realize, with Mr. Baker that “the strongest nation dies, like the bee, when it uses its sting.” dis armament schemes can be expected to go forward rapidly. The Graf Zeppelin, completing a trip to the Arctic, returns to Berlin to find its days as queen—or pos sibly king—of the air Just about numbered. By the time the great German air ship makes another long-distance trip it probably will have lost the title of “world's largest airship.” The U. S. Navy ship Akron will be flying in a short time, and the glories of the Graf Zeppelin will be surpassed. The excellent work that the Graf Zeppelin did for aviation will not soon be forgotten, however. The ship proved what airships can do. It set people thinking about them. It demonstrated airships’ safety. It may yield first place to the • Akron, but it has set a noble record. Editorial Comment Editorials printed below show the trend of thought by other editors. They are published without regard to whether they agree or disagree with The Tribune's policies. Generations of commercial inter course and International relationships have not succeeded In nullifying the old maxim that “East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet.” But, it begins to look as though hot weather had succeeded in dissolving racial peculiarities that long have resisted other solvents. At almost the Identical moment, when the China Digest of Shanghai editorially exclaims that “high col lars In hot weather are a mockery” the postmen of England petition the postmaster general for permission to “wear their shirts open at the neck during the hot weather.” It matters not that the British postmaster gen eral ruled “neckties indispensable to the proprieties of British dress” nor that the complaining and incom parable Chinese probably went right on suffering his “high collar mock ery.” * The common aspiration of Shang hai and London reveal clearly that “The Colonel's Lady and Judy O’Grady are sisters under the humid ity." British mail carriers and Shanghai journalists unite to affirm now that “One touch of nature makes the whole world kin," and that the supposedly inseparable East and West are dangerously near severing, at least their sartorial separation, on the subject that “high collars in hot weather are a mockery." The average girl of today Is taller, broader in shoulders, narrower in hips, and heavier than her mother was at the same age.

NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER XXXIX | t T/"AN ROBARD stamped about the apartment, frowning. His man came to the door with a ladden tray. “Put it down, Ito, and don’t stand there grinning! I have a beast of a headache. Shake me up a bromo, like a good boy.” Robard reached for the pad on the table by the telephone, hitch ing his plum-colored dressing gown closer about his waist. Who’d called? Ah, that fool of a debutante he had met last week. Wanted him to call back. Fat chance! He sat, drumming on | the table. A clgaret made him feel better. He inhaled grate fully. Funny Liane hadn’t called. That [ note he’d written had been cal i culated to bring her. It had been | a hell of a dumb thing to do but he’d taken the chance. f “I’m ill and I want to see you before I go. Won’t you Just tele phone me?” Yes, he had trusted to her ten der heart. Evidently he’d been wrong. You never knew women even when you thought you’d got them all figured out. As he threw hie clgaret into the fireplace the bell tingled. Robard reached for it. Even that movement jarred hie head and he frowned darkly. Hie “hello” was little less than surly, but the tone changed instantly. “Yes, it’s I. A wretched cold.” He coughed. “Doctor’s forbidden me to go out and I wondered if you wouldn’t stop ill about four. I’m having some people for tea.” There was a pause during which he coughed again. “I know I’ve a nerve to ask you but it’ll be my only chance to say goodby. I’ve been ordered to stay Indoors till Saturday. See you then?. Ah, fine. Voir.’* wznmmmm THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE, MONDAY, AUGUST 10. 1931 The Vacation “List”! so it has been ever since. And in case you have put a gift cigar in your mouth, let me explain that tobacco arrives in fragrant clusters and that these samples are the result of years of prowling over tobacco farmlands near and far. ♦ * * The first Sumatra tobacco arrived in New York about 1853, and it was 25 years later that the Duys came also. Being somewhat of a smoker my self, I was interested to discover that while Havana may furnish most of the fillers for cigars, Connecticut furnishes a considerable percentage of the wrappers used in the east. Tobacco, far from being a far-away industry, has been proving an im portant farming commodity right here in the dear old U. S. A. Connecticut Yankees have been to bacco conscious for many a genera tion, and the “shade-grown” product of that state is so called because it There was a smile of triumph on his face as he put down the telephone. He shaved and pres ently could be heard singing in his bath. The oriental cleared away the debris of the breakfast things and swept up the littered grate, bringing fresh logs for the fire. Van sang out from the bath room, ‘‘lto! I want you to get freesia. Heaps of it. And yellow roses. Two dozen. Buy thou sands of little cakes while you’re about it and better get some gren adine.” He would give the scene the air of a party. His histrionic sense rejoiced in the scheme. rpHE stage was set when, a few minutes after four, the door bell rang softly. Van disposed himself in a big chair, trusting he wore an invalid’s pallor. He could hear Ito’s sibilant greeting to the visitor and In an instant she appeared between the cur tains. He sprang up, forgetting his role, to greet her. Liane looked pale and flower like in a black suit with a little black hat pulled down over her bright hair. She wore a silver fox slung across her shoulder. “Don’t get up,” she insisted. He said, coughing a little, “You were an angel to come.” She glanced around. “Am I the first?” “You are and that’s my good luck. I hadn’t time to ask you all the Questions I wanted to the other day.” “I thought you’d sailed by this time.” He looked away. “The date was put over. I managed that.” Instantly she was all concern. “What does the doctor think?” He did not dare to look at her, lest he smile at this. “Oh, I’ll be all right in a day or two. Only, you know, these spring colds are treacherous things.” “I know.” He made her sit in the chair behind the urn. He took her fur, her gloves. “It seems wonderful to have you here. So natural.” She flushed. She turned aside In panic. Was she wrong to have come? Where were the others of whom he had spoken? She looked at the dozen cups, the heaps of cakes, and was reassured. Robard came and sat beside her, looking deep Into her eyes. “D’you know I’ve never stopped loving you?’* She sprang up, affronted. "You mustn’t begin tbat all over again.” v “Why not?” His tone had the old caressing note In it. “I don’t like It.” She put a quiet dignity into the words. She tried with all her heart to mean them. He began again softly, “You don’t love Clive. I can see that. You belong to me, really, and al ways will.” “You mustn’t—l forbid you to say these things to me.” She faced him, eyes blazing. He laughed a little to see her so. “All right, I won’t say It.

If the soil falls to conform to the last word In tests from Java and Sumatra, there’s no one to blame but nature; and man has learned how to use scientific methods to over come handicaps of climate and earth. Ohio, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, it seems, have remained a few laps behind Connecticut, and the crop of those states, I was told, goes into the five -cent cigar which, one has been constantly reminded, is what the na tion needs. * * * Out in Amsterdam, where most of the Manhattan wholesalers, includ ings Mcinherr Duys, go to look over the colonial stock, it seems there is a perfect Job. It’s that of the “test smoker.’’ This gent—there are many, as a matter of fact—has merely to sit back in his chair, light and make his money. Good, bad or indiffer ent he has to smoke it, even as at an American banquet, which is why he flash he had her in his arms, his mouth deep on hers. ’lfhere!” He let her go. “Now can you say you don’t love me?” She dropped, shaken, Into a chair. She moaned, “I shouldn’t have come. You lied to me?” “Of course, I did. I never should have seen you alone other wise.” She put her shaking hand to her lips. They felt bruised. “You think I'm cheap. Easy! You have a line, they saj, You think it will work with me, too!” He set his jaw. "That’s not so, and you know It. I wanted you for my wife but you wouldn’t wait for me.” “Wouldn’t wait!” It was her turn to laugh now. “That Is funny.” “It Isn’t too late even now," he cried, pressing his advantage. “Come away with me next week and Clive will be glad enough to give you a divorce. Unless,” he was watching her face shrewdly, “unless it’s an annulment you want.” • * • 'T'HE telltale color in her face * made him realize he had guessed her secret. “I hate you,” she moaned. “Give me my things. I'm going.” He barred the door. “Not like this. You can’t.” He was on his knees beside her. He put his big handkerchief into her hands. “Don’t cry, little love,” he wheedled. “I’m sorry. I am a million kinds of a fool. But I love you so!” Weakly she wept, her head on this man’s shoulder. The fire blazed up and the room darkened. She stood up. struggling for com posure. “It’s too late for you to talk like that to me or for me to lis ten,” she told him. She sought her vanity box and repaired the ravages left by tears. “I shan’t see you again, then?” the man asked. She shook her head. *Tm sailing on the Conte Rosso Tuesday. If you change your mind come to me.” “My mind’s made up. This Is goodby.” He put his hand out to touch hers but again her nearness and sweetness were too much for him. He kissed her once and dice again. She stumbled and would have fallen had he not caught her. Ito’s voice was heard in the hall. Neither of them had noticed the sound of the bell. Llane drew on her gloves and with the as tonishing quickness of her sex was quite composed when the ser vant entered. She gasped at the name he gave and turned. Clive was saying, “I’ve come for my wife.” “I want to explain,” Llane be gan haltingly. The door was shut behind them. Van, debonair and at ease, waved his hand at the tea table and said nonchalantly, “Stop a bit. The others will be along pres ently.” This Clive chose to ignore. He said briefly and coldly to his wife, “D’you mind if I hurry you a little? We’re dining with the Williams* tonight, you remem- may eam his dough. And the buyers stand around waiting. His is not the Job of critic, or he would be more highly paid. What the buyers are waiting for is a peep at the ash. If this comes out a certain combination of whites and grays, the deal Is on. If there Is no black rim around the lighted sector, again the deal is on. Once the demonstration has been made, the sampler can toss the cigar away and take up another. In the course of a working day, he demon strates 150 cigars, more or less. Every two hours he Is given a bottle of milk to soothe his palate. * * * And ‘whereas the Sumatra and Java farms have Chinese who are to the tobacco born, and can expert the crop almost from the roof, America is rearing a generation of young women whose decisions are hard to overrule. Hundreds of girls are used in the Connecticut tobacco farms and are as quick at noting the quality of the leaf as any Chinese coolie in the Dutch colonies. The hard-boiled leaf selectors have a way of taking the lighted end of a cigar and pressing it against a leaf.

GILBERT SWAN. (Copyright, 1931, NEA Service, Inc.) HOOVER WAR APPOINTMENT On Aug. 10, 1917, Herbert hoover was appointed by President Wilson United States food administrator un der the terms of the Lever act. Hoover at once developed an organ ization for stimulating production, checking hoarding and speculation and conserving food supplies. Be cause he had comparatively little power in his hands, he called on the people for cooperation. He received almost universal backing for his re quests. Among the food limitations he call ed for were meatless and wheatless days. By enrolling thousands of volunteer workers and local commit tee members he was able to extend the food administration to every state, city and village. During his food administration work Hoover es tablished the U. S. Grain Corpora tion. Sugar Equalization board, and Food Purchase board, all for the pur pose of a more centralized handling of food supplies during the emer gency.

That’s all.” His tone forbade further confidences. • •. • T IANE’S brain was whirling. What sort of woman was she anyway? She had gone to Van’s apartment openly. She must have known what was about to hap pen. She had promised loyalty to this man at her side, the man whose name she bore. Painfully she cried, “But I must! lam ashamed!” Clive turned to glance at her. His eyes gleamed in the shifting shadow of the moving motor like blue ice. v “He was making love to you. That was it?” he asked in a harsh voice. She began softly to sob. “Don’t do that! I can’t beat; it.” He put a hand on her arm. “You’re Just a child. All this was a mistake. You’re not able to cope with the harsh realities of life.” She dashed the tears from her eyes. This was so far from what she had expected that surprise held her for a moment. “I’m not so young,” she pro tested. “I—oh, I hate to say this, to hurt you, but I can’t stop car ing for him.” Her eyes implored him to understand. He frowned. He spoke almost as if to himself. “I’ve tried to protect you from this. Perhaps I’ve been too slow, too simple. Perhaps I should have warned you earlier. But you must be protected from Van. It—oh, it’s impossible! Even it you were free.” The last stung her. “Why?” “Don’t ask me. I don’t want to go into it now. Perhaps later.” , In despair the girl cried, “What is all this mystery about Van Robard? My mother hints black* ly of something and will not tell me. And now you. I want to know. I—l love him!” she fin ished defiantly. “You are my wife,” Clive re* $ minded her in a warning tone. She threw caution to the winds. * “Oh, we’re living a farce,” she cried. “You’re nothing to me nor I to you.” He winced but she. rushed on unheeding. “There’s nothing between us but a word that can be broken.” “I’m holding you to that word,* 4 he informed her. “I asked only the loyalty you might give to a friend. That and the pride you might feel in my name. You can’t say at this stage of the game, ’I love him,’ and let it go at that. It’s not good enough for me. Put here to save you from yourself. Van has loved before. Don’t for get that! Early and often. And t not once has he put a ring on a woman’s finger.” > She laughed. “He’s never real ly loved before.” Clive sighed. It was so hope less to argue with a child. (To Be Continued). " it Daily Health Service Many Beliefs About Fat in Diet Now Classed as Superstitious Experiments Show Fats Not Only Necessary But Userui, Recommend Oils and Butter EDITOR’S NOTE—This is the eleventh of a series of 26 timely articles by Dr. Morris Ftshbein on “Food Truths and Follies,” dealing with such much -discussed but little known subjects as cal ories, vitamins, minerals, diges tion and balanced diet. * * * BY DR. MORRIS FIBHBEIN (Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association) There are all sorts of superstitions and ideas concerning fats in the diet. There are people who are convinced that all fats are indigestible, that fats mean nothing but added weight, that they simply cannot eat fat and that fat goes directly to the places where it looks worst and annoys most. It has been proved by experiments in laboratories that fats are of spe cial value in the diet because they contain high quantities of the three fat soluble vitamins A, D and E. When animals or children are fed diets lacking in these substances, they respond promptly with series of se rious symptoms. Many experiments have been made on feeding white rats with diets that contained no fat. Animals can be grown from weaning to maturity on diets deprived of neu tral fats. On the other hand, ani mals have also been grown success fully on diets which contain 86 per cent of the total calories in the form of fat. Fats are useful in the diet not only for raising calories, but also because of the special flavors that they have. For this reason, oils, such as olive oil, are used in salad dressings. The fat of the egg yolk and butter fat, and the fat of cod liver oil are the very finest sources of vitamin A and D. Chemically, the fats are composed of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. They contain less oxygen and more carbon and hydrogen than do the carbohydrates. The fats of various animals vary according to the species. Animals hard pressed to maintain the morale of their people because of food short age due to reduced production and to cargoes lost by submarine destruction.

Ani mals that live on meat have harder fats than those which live on vege tables. In times of starvation the fat serves to spare the protein. Er gosterol, which is the source of vita min D, is in fat. The primary use of fats in the body is to carry on the work of the body, to furnish heat, to spare proteins, and to supply the vitamins. When fat is taken into the body it is not digested in any way in the mouth and very little indeed in the stomach. The greater part of the digestion of fat takes place in the small Intestines, where it Is acted on by certain secreted juices. Because it is difficult for the juices of the body to penetrate into the fat, the digestion of fat takes place slowly. Foods which are rich in fats are therefore retained longer periods of time in the stomach and in the in testines. There is plenty of evidence that fat is stored up in the body. When swine are fed on cotton seed meal, the lard shows In characteris tic color reaction of cotton seed oil. The same is true of butterfat. The body’s requirement of fat varies from approximately 2.1 grams of fat per pound of body weight at six months of age to 1.4 grams per pound of body weight from the age of three to the age of seventeen, and thereafter about one gram of fat per pound of body weight. A gram is roughly one-thirtieth of an ounce. Anyone who eats some butter, some egg yolk, a little bacon, or other fat meat, a little olive oil or other food oil will supply from the point of view of fat about all the fat that he can possibly need. Infants frequently receive an ex cess of fat as shown by loss of ap petite, loss of weight, and a special color in the excretions associated with too much fat in the diet.
