Friday, July 5, 1935 A Safe and Sane Fourth Once again the Valley territory may congratulate itself on having parsed through a safe and sane Fourth of Juiy. Early reports Friday w*.re to the ef fect that not one fatality, not one serious accident that could properly be blamed to the celebration of the national holiday, had occurred. And once more this section may thank its natural resources for the safety of its children and its en thusiastic parents who help the children celebrate these events. A trip to the beaches, to the lake resorts, to the private picnic grounds gives the answer. Probably more than 5,000 people enjoyed the hos pitality of Boca Chica beach for all or part of Thurs day. Fishing, bathing, and just good old fashioned loafing In the sand furnish the best sort of amuse ment to the crowds that dotted Brazos Island from early morn to late at night. The Jetties were swarming with fishermen, big and little, and all reported some sort of good luck, the proverbial “fisherman's luck’ being conspicuous by its ab Vnce. In casting up the assets of the Valley, never fall to Include near the top of the list the beaches, the lakes, the nearby resorts that enable us to play with safety. Livestock at Large Brownsville residents have heard plenty during the past two weeks regarding livestock within the city limits. ^stifled complaints regarding the manner In which horses, cows and other four footed species either run at large or are tethered to the discomfort of neighbors have been made. The city commission hit a happy solution of the question by proposing strict enforcement of an ex isting ordinance which specifically prohibits the tethering of livestock In city alleys and which makes other provisions for the rights and comforts of all concerned. A little more care and caution on the part of children, a few wisely delivered parental hints, and the question would seem to be settled. Zeppelins Fly On A cable from Amsterdam announces that Zep pelins soon may replace steamships as the principal means of communication between Holland and the Dutch East Indies. The chief steamship line, it seems, has been run ning at a substantial loss. Dirigibles, the steamship directors feel, could cover the distance between Am sterdam and Java in far less time and could convert this loss into profit. Plans are said to be under may for buying a fleet of them from the Zeppelin people to be placed in reg ular service under Dutch control. All this has a strange sound to an American pub lic disillusioned by the loss of the Akron and Macon But the Dutch are reported to feel that the Germans know Just enough more than we do about building giant airships to make them safe and reliable. Are we. after all. being Just a little hasty in giving Up on these huge sky liners?

MORRIS flSBBKlM Editor. Journal of Um Iwrt— Modtea! AmdUka and of Bygukk Um Boaltk Mmiki More than 75 year* ago a famous French doctor observed that the type of sick headache called mi graine is. like certain cases of asthma and eesema, associated with sensitivity to certain food substances. More recently, since means have been found for test ing out such sensitivities scientifically, this Impres sion has been confirmed. Moreover. It has been established that in some esses it is possible to free s person from these head aches by finding the substance to which be Is sen sitive and eliminating that substance from the diet. Of course, there are some cases of sick headache which are not definitely of this type but which may be related to nervous disturbances or to disturbances of various organs within the body. As a rule, when the headache Is due to a sensitivity, the pain begins in or near one eye and spreads over one side of the head. Occasionally also It passes around to the back of the head. • • • The beginning of the headache may be associated with confusion and forgetfulness, with sweating or flushing of the tissues, with a feeling of numbnesa In the tongue, the lips, or the nose. Occasionally also there may be a feeling of nausea, the eyelids may become puffy, and canker sores may break out in the mouth. All of these symptoms are known to be Indica tions that a disturbance of the body Is about to take place, and may be a warning to the patient that the sick headache is coming on. It has also been found that excessive fatigue, worry , excitement or constipation may Initiate the symptoms or intensify them, and It Is certainly ad visable for people who have sick headaches to avoid this series of associated factors. People generally have observed that sick head aches are likely to run in families, and the studies of investigators have shown that a considerable per centage of people whose parents have migraine may have migraine also. • • • Equally Interesting is the fact that a good many relatives of the person who has this sort of migraine will have some of the other conditions that are due to sensitivity, such as asthma, hay fever, or skin eruptions. When a study Is made of the foods that are most frequently responsible for sick headaches of this type, we find the foods to be the same as those which most people report as being distressful. Those which lead the list are chocolate, onions, cabbage, cucumbers, apples, pork, and melons. However, there is hardly a single food to which some person cannot report himself sensitive. It is interesting to realize that the individual's own observations as to the foods which cause him trouble are likely to be Just as valuable as the skin tests which are made by the physician. In 50 per cent of cases, the skin test did not Indicate, where as the patient's own observation was able to select the food causing the trouble. ■ In dealing with criminal*, man haa exalted his own feelings of perfection at the expense of others mistakes, has characterized them M sinful and bad. and. by implication, considered himself as good and therefore worthy —Dr. W.

NEW YORK By James McMuIlin Harvest — The third extension of the coal strike truce at the last min uite revealed two elements in the slatuation that are worth watching. One is the evidence of serious fric tion between John L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers and Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins. Organ ised labor has never forgiven the Perkins appointment. For diplo matic reasons both sides have tried to cover up the mutual antagonism —but the veil is wearing thin. Here was s major strike definitely adver tised for July 1 and yet the obvious government intermediary did no thing to head it off until the strike order was already on the wires. Labor leaders frankly regard Miss Perkins as a glorified social worker and their antipathy to dealing with her when it can be avoided is likely to breed more serious complications in the future. It so happened that Lewis was glad to have an excuse to postpone the strike as long as there’s still a chance for passage of the Guffey bill. New York sharps predict, that tests to come will find labor in a less receptive mood. Federation chiefs can't afford to be too pacific with so much unrest in the ranks. Add to that pressure a deep antagonism for Labor Depart ment policies and you have the seeds for a disturbing harvest. Bill Green needs to play with the ad ministration for reasons of self-pres ervation — but his hand may be forced. • • • nearer — The second point un defined by extension of the coal truce was the great importance of the Guffey bill. Representatives of miners and operators have been go ing through the motions of wage conferences — but the negotiators were well aware they were only shadow boxing. If congress fails to pass the bill this month the lid will be off. And there’s more at stake In the Guffey measure than Just the fata of the soft coal Industry. The bill has led the White House “must list" since June 15 but not a wheel has turned to bring it closer to enact ment This sort of thing fosters the appetite of discontented laborites for direct political action through a third party Leading members of the Progressive and Farm Labor groups are Joining the right-wing Socialists in a determined effort to maneuver the Federation into a united left-wing front. John Lewis is understood to be thorouphly fed up with the run around he thinks hes been getting He has shared the uew of other vet eran labor leaders that the Federa tion is stronger outside of politics— but hes an able opportunist and those who should know say he’s ca pable of a sudden switch if he feels sentiment in the ranks demands it snd if he can’t get the legislation he wants. In that case he might take the play completely away from Green—whom he is said to regard as a bit fogeylsh — and lead organiz ed labor down a new path which could very well end up In a major political realignment. * A A Charting—Appointment of Thom as E Dewey to head the New York City racket investigation has much more than locr.l significance The moye tie* back to Tammany ob struction of FDR's program. Gov ernor Lehman is helping his friend in the White Rouse put the Tiger on the spot. Dewey is able and fear less and about the last man Tam many Insiders care to see on the Job. Rackets are the target of the inquiry — but Insiders figure it’s also aimed at the “invisible gov ernment" composed of Tammany. New York republicans and powerful financial elements. If Dewey makes good he will be come a national figure. He has op portunity comparable to that of Charles Evans Hughes in the New York State Insurance investigation many years ago. The informed rate his chances of success no better than 40r*. He is pitting courage and ability against an extremely po tent combination of talent, money and self Interest. Among other ob stacles is the reluctance of power ful leaders to develop another Hughes with whom they will later have to deal on his own terms. Keen observers comment that Dewey's task is comparable to chart ing the Oulf Stream and analyzing its effect on an immense territory. The material with which he must work is extremely elusive and deeply hidden But accurate cartography would present Information of na tional interest. • • • Breach — Shrewd sources figure the British drift toward Germany and away from Prance is the fruit I Chamber of Commerce Leader Sees Hope in Post/NRA Era - n By WILLIS THORNTON NIA Service Staff Correspandeftt WA8HINOTON, July 2. — Skep tics who wonder II business, freed from what Is considered the hobbles of NRA, will do any better now than '* did when equally free be tween 1930 and 1932. meet no en couragement from Harper 8ibley. The new president of the U. 8. Chamber of Commerce towers from his more than 0 feet as he replies: "It's an unfair comparison. The accomplishments of American busi ness ought not to be judged by any particular brief period. "They must be judged by the re cord of many years, during which they have brought this country to the highest living standards in the world. The record of any brief and abnormal period is an unfair and absurd standard of judgment." "Little Man" Represent*! In Chamber Teday, Claim Indignation Is not visible in this soft reply Visible Indignation s no part of the equipment of Harper Sibley, whose personality bears the marks of a background almost ex actly like that of the president of the United States — Groton and Harvard. But It comes near breaking out In discussion of administration state ments that the U. 8. Chamber does not really represent American busi ness. "We have been steadily broad ening our base of membership, which has shown *a marked pickup in recent years. We have field men traveling the country, constantly in touch with American business men of all kinds. We know from them what American business men are thinking, and the rising tide of disapproval of NRA has been quite clear far a long time. "There is nothing to the charge that the chamber represents prin cipally great accumulations of cap ital. In the meetings of the nation al chamber the small cities actual ly outvote the large ones. Our av erage member. I believe, comes more nearly representing manage ment and the small proprietor than he does capital and big Industry. Seek To Save Benefits Gained Through NRA “The first direct effect on our organization of abandonment of the codes s resumption if volunt ary trade association work, which we had been carrying on for years. When NRA came along, the gov enment codes of course supplanted what we had been able to accom plish In trade practice agreements. Now we are resuming that work In the expectation that many of the advantages that came In with NRA will be kept through voluntary trade association agreements. “Possibly the best and greatest effect of the whole NRA experi ment will prove to have been edu cational. If there ever were very many business men who felt at liberty to conduct their businesses without regard for anyone else, competitor, employe or the public, there certainly aren’t many now. Rays Employers Are Aware Of Social Responsibilities “The social responsibility of I .- -- Hnrper Hiblry Head of the U. 8 Chamber of Commerce, but a bif-scale farm operator by profession. Harper Sibley expresses confidence in business to go for ward to recovery, believing the defunct NRA taught many lessons. Sibley is shown here with a prize-winning ear of corn from his Illinois farm, largest in the state. business has been borne In on every business man. and the tech nique and advantages of coopera tion have been learned as never before through the making of the codes of fair competition under NRA. It taught many men to get together who wouldn't even speak before." On the point of leaving for Paris to attend the meeting of the International Chamber of Com merce. Sibley pointed out that the sweeping decisions of the U. 8. Supreme Cotut in the Schechter NRA and Prazler-Lemke cases left the U. 8. Chamber scarcely more sure of Its ground than labor or other elements of the country. The chamber has a committee studying the decisions to determine whether all the program of the chamber Itself as recommended shortly before the decisions, is now to be considered constitutional. Believes lamer Price* Vital To Home Industries While Sibley made a personal appeal to the chamber members to kc |> up NRA wage and hour schedules and protect collective bargaining, he believes there are some Industries which must first deflate somewhat. That la. he be lieves there are some fields In which grater production can only be obtained by offering a cheaper product so people can buy It. That, he admits, might mean temporary lower wages In that field until pro duction rose, enabling wages to rise again But he feels this situa tion applies only In certain in dustry Oddly enough, the president of the U. 8 Chember of Commerce today is a farmer. At least one of Sibley’a principal business Inter ests U farm management, and he usually programs himself as "Man ager. Sibley Farms. Sibley. 111.'' For years he has been a leader of the chamber's agricultural com mittee Sibley farms Is a big opera tion; he once sold 300,000 bushels of wheat at a crack. He went along with the government reduction program and collected substantial benefits but was opposed to the ex tension of AAA power recently au thorised. Just short of 50 years old.
