P. grass roots convention, takes the place today of Rodney Dutcher's "Behind the Scenes in Washington" column.—Editor. Springfield, 111., June 17.—If the Republicans were the victims of a "smear Hoover" campaign in 1932, they seem to be getting ready to return the compliment, with Interest added, in 1936. By putting your ear to the ground at the "grass roots" convention of Republicans here, you could get a fair idea of the general line of attack which the O. O. P. will follow in the next presidential campaign. It will be an aggressive campaign, and President Roosevelt will be the principal target. If speeches delivered at the convention are a good indication, Republican strategy is shaping itself for a grand assault on dictatorship and bureaucracy, with Mr. I Roosevelt cast in the role of chief dictator and head bu Ireaucrat If there was a time when it was considered good policy to attack members of the "brain trust" rather I than Roosevelt himself, that time has gone forever. The [speakers here outdid themselves in attacking him LASHES AT ROOSEVELT Consider, for instance, the way In which Robert O Simmons, former congressman from Nebraska, described to the delegates President Roosevelt's comments on the U. S. supreme court's overthrow of NRA. In these remarks, said Simmons, the president was attacking, not the court, but "the constitution that stands as the bulwark between the independence of a people and the collectivist state which the president now seeks to set up." And he added: "Make the question of giving to the national gov ernment the dictatorial powers over the state, local com munities, and individuals that the president seeks the major issue of the 1936 campaign." LINCOLN SPIRIT INVOKFLU Nor was Simmons alone In this kind of denunciation. John Hamilton, Republican national committeeman from Kansas, declared that Lincoln—Lincoln figured pretty largely in this convention, Springfield being his home town—"would stand shoulder to shoulder with us In this Hamilton, describing the present administration as a bureaucratic despotism, set upon a fixed course to .1 Then Harrison Spangler, national committeeman from the *lrst time in larse 4.1. u i a. ...

The idea is that they just did not have sense enough to know the presi dent was joking. The truth, of course, is that the president was far from joking and it was as far as pos sible removed from a "chance re mark." The further truth is that the only reason he isn't following through on that line is because the reaction was not favorable. The further truth is that the constitution stands in the way of the New Deal and if there were a way to toss it aside the New Dealers would do so.

A life sized cardboard figure ot a blond girl ornamented the left-hand cor ner. Issuing from her mouth was a balloon explaining that daily use ot some sort of patented product gave her that rose and gold complexion. Two or three shabbily-dressed men loafed In the ahade ot the bank building. A child on roller Skates came coasting disslly down the Incline and took the cornet on high, both arma spreadeagled for balance. Katharine, nodding to Mrs. Bndance who fan the lending library, disappeared Into the drug store. She had a great many small erranda to do for Ber tine there was soap and witch hazel and mending tape and black Ink on the list. The cut-rate drug atore represented one ot Bertine's pet economies. She could have telephoned to Cap lan's, just around the corner, and had all the purchases delivered as most of the people down on the Point did. But, while she could be wildly extravagant in larger matters, she drew the line here. Katharine gave her order ab stractedly to the clerk behind the counter. She waa not thinking of her erranda. She was reflect ing, with some surprise, that It was really easier than she had thought to forget the tall, slate eyed young man who sat his horse so easily and who had rid den quite suddenly and unexpect' edly Into her life last year, Michael Heatheroe. She had learned to control leap ing pulses when his name was spoken. She had learned to ac cept, without a sick plunging ot the heart, the incredible newa that he waa going to marry the coquettish Sally Moon. Well, and so what? she asked herself.

I repeat, health is the essence of beauty. One characteristic symptom of pellagra, a nutritional disease due to insufficient vitamin G, is a roughening of the skin which resembles In ap pearance an old sunburn. Probably many cases of so-called "eczema" or "psoriasis" are really instances of this degenerative change from a partial deficiency In intake of vitamin O. McCollum and Simmonds described the better-than-average nutritional condition induced and maintained through an extended portion of the life cycle by the more liberal use of "the protective foods" in the diet as "the preservation of the characteristics of youth." Langstroth noted that the skin of individuals whose diet has long been poor in vitamins became sallow, coarse, thick and harsh or dry, and that when the Intake of vitamins was increased the akin and complexion improved steadily, and the eyes, which had been dull gray or congested, became brighter. It is well to remember that the skin and complexion is part of the body, just as are the eyes, the teeth, or the feet, and accordingly are subject to the laws of physiology. When there is anything wrong with the skin or complexion it is reasonable to infer that there is something wrong with your physiology, your nutrition, your hygiene, your way of living, and it is silly to hope that you can correct the trouble by the use of a thick cosmetic. Among the foods rich in vitamin are liver, kidney, round steak, egg yolk, dried peas, beet greens, raw cabbage (cole slaw), malted milk, lettuce, Carrots, watercress, fresh milk, and dried yeast—though yeast is hardly a natural food for man. An ounce of dried yeast contains from 250 to 500 units of vitamin an ounce of beef liver contains from 260 to 340 units of vitamin G. It is easy to eat six or eight ounces of liver a day, but an Ounce of yeast a day is difficult to take. In any case where there is reason to believe the trouble is due to lack or insufficient daily intake of a particular vitamin, It is generally better to in crease the intake of all of the vitamins. Vitamins do not occur Isolated, but always in combinations of two or more, in nature. It it in the refining, cook ing, preserving of food that the natural vitamins are removed or destroyed. For instance, wheat contains vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin and vitamin E. In the milling and refining to white flour most of the vitamins are removed fend discarded. Fresh raw milk contains A, B, and G, but most of the O is destroyed by par-boiling (pasteurizing). Sugar cane contains some vitamin B, which goes into the molasses, tile refined sugar having no vitamins at all. Eggs, milk, cheese, wheat (the entire kernel or berry), liver, round steak, the greens or salad vegetables and fresh fruits in season, are the im portant items to include in the diet to provide the vitamins to maintain health. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Iodin Doesn't Grow Stale I have iodine which a doctor prescribed for me six years ago. Is it too stale to use as an iodin ration now? (Mrs. 8. J. D.) Answer—If it is tincture of iodin lt is probably stronger now, by reason of evaporation of some of the alcohol. Iodin doesn't grow stale, as do many adults who fail to take their ration of it. Sulphur and Molassea Kindly print the formula for the old fashioned spring tonic and blood purifier, sulphur and molasses. (Miss R. T.) Answer—Mix flowers of sulphur and old fashioned molasses in equal quantities. The dose Is a teaspoonful or two twice a day. I don't know what it is good for, except a mild laxative. I do NOT advise it for little nieces, nephews or grandchildren. Vitamin Milk Please tell me what metabolized vitamin milk is and where it can be purchased? (Mrs. C. B. C.) Answer—Ordinary milk from cows that receive a daily ration of irradiated yeast, which imparts vitamin to the milk. Large dairies in many com munities provide this milk. It la a good way to insure adequate vitamin for infant or child. (Copyright, 1935, John P. Dille Oo ummet eatti broken hearts about with them. Few—very tew. A broken heart was hopelessly out of date. Like hoop skirt. Only she wished she might not ever catch glimpse of either one of them—Michael or Sally again. She hoped they might go out to California or Hawaii—any where that was definitely tar and removed from Innicock. Then she could take up ber sketching, her delicate, definite water colors that Evelyn Vincent said were actually salable: she could make something of her life. Some day. perhaps years and years in the future, some shad owy. dark, tall man would come along. She would tell him it wasn't In her to care, really, any more but he would persuade her. against her will and her better judgment, to marry him. "Black ink. did yon say. miss?

Two rather bulky men, in stiff eity clothes, stood aside to let her pass. They were frankly strangers in Innicock, where you knew ev eryone, from the man who swept the streets and rejoiced in the Blmple name ot "Christmaa." to the boya who sold the daily paper Katharine waa aware of them now only aa figures blocking her path. But as one of them spoke to the boy behind the soda coun ter, a name broke into her con sciousness. Michael's name. DRAWN By Mabel McEKotl 6 93*. NEA Seivke, Inc. by a eurioalty she not explain or deny could Katharine loitered at the weigh ing machine, apparently intent only on the black numerals which slid into sight as she stepped upon it and dropped a penny into the slot.

Then she was in traffic, her small brown shoe pressing down hard, hard on the accelerator. Out the River Road, library and English novel and rolls for lunch eon completely forgotten. Ber tlne had said, rather querulously, to hurry back. But Katharine could not bother about Bertine now. If you hall a friend and he was in trouble, you did some thing about it, didn't you? She did not argue lt out she was not aware of any problem needing to be decided. It was as simple aa this. If Michael were in danger, and ahe knew ot it. why then she must warn him. She had alwaya known. In the back ot her brain, that there waa some mystery about Michael. But whatever he had been or done, ho wasn't to be caught like a rat in trap. Those hard-faced mea with the badgea should have noth ing to do with him. She raced past the Meraer house without turning her head. There were two white flashes on the lawn that she assumed to bo Sybil and Diana, but Katharine dared not take her eyes off the road even to wave. Any moment the men would be turning out ot Innicock's main street to find the winding roads that ran back ot the hills to the riding school. Any minute. a a LOW-SLUNG, black car passed like a streak and for a ment Katharine'e heart plunged again In fear. But the driver waa only a alip ot a girl In checked red gingham, with her wild curls flying in tbe breeze. Katharine turned Into the lane there were already one or two cars parked there. Tips came oat of the stable, with a look of sur prise for her. Mr. Heatheroe about?" I think so. If you'll wait Just a i n u e i s s Her relief waa so great that her knees began to tremble. If he had'been out on the bridle path however would she have got the news to him? Tips disappeared.

Hts cool eyea would have abashed her If ahe had not been so terribly intent. "No. not the house." ehe al most ahrleked. "Clear away. Look, lt'a frightfully important. You're in danger." "I? What'e wrong?" He did not have the air of a guilty man —but then you never could tell. "Get Into my car." She threw a hurried look over her ahoulder. "I can tell you there. They'll be coming any minute." He opened the door for her and she flung herself in. She had the engine running, triumphantly. "Come along," she cried. "Hur ry." He was in the seat beside ber. She was out of the lane and away, winding up the road away from tfce town.
