In that he sets an example for other men, particularly those I
whom he leaves behind to carry on the work which he pushed
forward with unceasing energy.
Though every man in the Tribune organization treasured!
him as a friend they also remember that he was an outstanding!
glory to the newspaper profession.
And as "30" is marked after his name in the halls of news-l
eternity, we perform the last sad rite. We turn thel
^ule as a sign of mourning.
It is the profession's mute way of saying, with the poet:
"There is no death the stars go down
To rise upon some other shore.
And bright in heaven's jeweled orown
They shine for ever more."
The Hope of the Future
Nothing offers greater hope for America than the manner inl
which both the public and individuals of wealth have rallied to|
the support of our schools.
Had not North Dakota schools needed the money, for ex-|
ample, the people of this state would never have voted a sales
tax upon themselves.
Were it not for the deep-seated belief that education offers I
the greatest hope for the future, wealthy men would not con-1
tinue to endow institutions of learning or establish scholar-1
ships that ambitious and worthy boys and girls might attend
Thus the level of intelligence is slowly being raised. Illit-I
eracy is being beaten back. The avenues of learning are being
opened to more people. A deeper understanding of both econ
omic, cultural and political forces is coming to the average
man. The result can be nothing but gootf, for we need not only]
greater individual intelligence, but a higher level of mass in
One of the phenomena which has always puzzled observers
of the electorate is the manner in which mass intelligence usual
ly departs from the standard which would seem to be average
for any group if its component parts were taken separately.
In such cases it seems that the lowest common denominator

One Farm Export Up
Despite the wholesale decreases in our exports of agricul
tural commodities, it is interesting to note that one product has
bravely bucked the tide. This is the humble soybean, a relative
newcomer to American agriculture.
Rich in oil and proteins, stock feeders and dairymen in
Canada and Europe found use for soybean meal at current prices
and it moved out of the country in larger volume than ever be
if lore.
It wasn't so cheap, at that, the average farm price In this
country for the 1935 crop being estimated at 73i/2 cents a
This product might or might not be a good one for more
extensive trial in North Dakota, but one thing is certain. That
is the soybean raiser will not have as much competition as is
true of farmers who go in for small grains, beef, corn and hogs.
Even the Hilltops
incurring cold spells such as we now are experiencing may!
improve rather than impair the agricultural outlook for this
section. If, as often happens, growth is retarded until spring]
sets in permanently, the danger of damage may be reduced and
when the crop really starts to grow it will come along boom|
The situation now is ideal for such a hopeful prospect. There I
is plenty of moisture in the ground to start a crop and the freez
ing weather will keep it from being evaporated until the farm-1
era can get into the fields.
Old timers, watching the recent snowfall and noting thel
manner in which the moisture has penetrated the soil, heave
a sigh of content and remark that this spring, "even the hilltops
will be green."

Turning the Rule
In life it is a rare thing for word of love to pass from manl
to man. Where deep affection dwells there is no need for trite
expression. The things unsaid are quite enough. The friendly
touch of hand the kindly gleam of eye the unspoken thought|
we fully understood and friendship grows.
And so when death strikes, the living tongue is mute. Thel
Vague meanderings of our troubled spirits probe the trackless]
paths of an unknown world, wishing a loved one back again.
Thus we of the Tribune can find no words to express thel
Sorrow which we feel as mother earth takes George D. Mann
to her long embrace. A poet might, perhaps, express the sym-|
pathy which goes out to his widow from every Tribune heart.
But in death there also is consolation. If it is the great I
leveller it also opens the gates of glory. It is something to|
know that the man who held our affection lived and died brave
ly, true to tine spirit which glowed within him throughout a|
useful life.

Washington, March 31.—The can

More than ten years before the discovery of vitamin O by Mellanby
(1916) the a German investigator Erdhpim (1907) regarded
enlargement of the pmthjfPid glands, which generally occurs In osteo
malacia or softening oTlSSs and in other dwal^lng dtoeajw of toe
«ln»iahMi, u a compensatory process. That is, the parathyroid glands pre
sumably secreted something which was lacking in such disease states.
tStaywehive considerable evidence that cither an insufficient dally
ration of vitamin or leak of exposure of the naked skin to sunlight or to
ultra-violet rays from some artificial, source, la a factor in enlargement of the
parathyroid glands.
As a rule the parathyroids thus compensating for deficiency of vita
min or defte'fyy of exponure to ultra-violet light or both do not oyerdo
the Job, but secrete an increased supply of the parathyroid hormone (in
ternal secretion) only as there Is increased need for it. In some instances,
however, the process Is earned to excess, and then the patient suffers from
hyperparathyroidism. The parathyroid glands, It must be remembered,
may greatly increase their function without becoming enlarged to any
noticeable degree.
children who do not reoeive optimal rations of vitamin or suf
ficient exposure of naked skin to sunlight .or skyshlne or to ultra-violet
light, the parathyroid flgndf are quite likely to overoompensate, usually
without appreciable enlafgement.
Here we arrive ft-the llmit^f our present knowledge. Just beyond, we
expect, we shell find tfee keys to many maladies, both of children and adults,
which have hitherto baffled every effort of physicians to conquer them.
I do not wish to raise any hope where there Is no hope. On the other
hand I am eager to bring good tidings when there is a brighter outlook.
In this column last mohth I told everything Z could tell -about the new
treatment of chronic arthritis with massive doses of vitamin D—synthetic
vitamin necessarily, since no natural source can provide enough In suffi
cient concentration. (The details are available by mail on request if you
pay the freight—inclose stamped envelope bearing your address and don't
waste my time or your postage asking me for this or any other Information
unless you provide the stamped envelope bearing your correct address, for
I'm an awful crab about doing such chores for birds who ask favors).
Spring is approaching and with it the sun's rays daUy yield more and
more of the precious ultra-violet, especially when the sun is highest, around
noonday. There is some ultra-violet even if there is no direct sunshine it
Is In the skyshlne or the diffuse daylight.
Get out of your thick head delusions or obsessions about "taking cold"
and begin today soaking in your share of ultra-violet, by taking a regular
noonday sunbath or expoelng as much of your naked skin as possible to the
sunshine or skyshlne—say for half an hour daily. I haven't room to list
all the benefits to be derived from this practice. But know that Ol' Doc
Brpdy ls strong for nudism for health's sake.
Economical Food
Pasteurised milk costs us 11 cents a quart. We can buy raw milk from a
dairy for 26 cents a gallon* How can we treat such milk to make it safe?
:..(lfrs.D. J.E.)
Answer—Bring It to a boll for one minute and it is as safe as any milk
for anybody.
Type ef^Obeetty
Following your booklet I reduced 35 pounds In about four months, but I
still have rolls of fat about my hips, though my legs and my face are very
thin.. (Mrs. H. D.)
Answer—Evidently your obesity is of the hypopltultary type. Your
physician could help you by administering pituitary injections. Persons
w:th ordinary nutritional obesity, send ten cents coin and stamped addreseed
envelope for booklet "Deeign for Dwindling."
Can a Woman forty-live years of age, Just getting married, expect

Answer—Of course the fertility is lees at that age, but any woman who
