Thursday, September 5, 1935 !What Others Think About Citrus Advertising Mention has been made from time to in the ooiumni of The Brownsville Herald of the proposed Florida citrus advertising r*jnp*iyn The plan of a •tate fund, proposed by the governor of the state, has met with a universal acceptance over all Florida citrus sections, and If carried out, as it appears It will be, presents still another obstacle to the successful marketing of Vallsy grapefruit and oranges. Just how effective a citrus advertising campaign promises to be Is well set out In an editorial In the Atlanta Constitution, a portion of which follows: "Florida should have taken this step long ago In order to counteract the Intensive advertising cam paign that has been waged by the citrus fruit pro ducers of California, and which has resulted In seri ous inroads by the western fruits Into ths eastern markets that should be dominated by the southern products. "California producers have used newspapers, maga slnes, billboards and every other type of advertising to Implant In the public mind the thought that the citrus fruits of that state are superior to those pro duced anywhere else In the world. "As a matter of fact, neither the California orange nor grapefruit is comparable In flavor and luscious quality to those grown In Florida. Notwithstanding, the western growers have, as ths result of their In tensive and sustained campaign of advertising, been able to reach Into the markets east of the Mississippi to an extent that has taken millions of dollars away from the Florida producera "The California Industry has been alert, wide awake and enterprising and has run rings around the large unorganized Florida citrus Industry, especially In regard to co-operation and systematic publicity. That Is why California is enabled to invade Florida's natural marketing territory, despite the fact that the California fruits have to be shipped 8.000 miles to reach these marketa ... If the fund le wisely administered It will mean millions of dollars In Increased outside revenues for the state. "There Is no threat to the exlstenoe of the Florida citrus fruit Industry, for Its manifold advantages as sure its continuance, but If Florida will give Its cit rus fruits the same backing as has been given to those of California, not only will further encroachment Into their eastern markets be stopped, but a tremend ous Increase In the demand for Florida citrus fruits will result." The Padre Island Causeway Mayor George Scanlan carries with him the best Wishes of the Valley as he presents the application of the city of Port Isabel to the Public Works ad ministration for funds with which to build a cause way from his city to Padre Island. This project has been much before the public eye In the course of the pest few years, and no proposal advanced has been received with greater public favor than this one which would link the Valley mainland with the fascinating shores of Padre Island. Such Is the desire of the average Valley resident to at one time or another visit this Island, that there cannot be any doubt as to ths self-liquidating feature of the causeway, once It Is built. The Valley wishes Mayor Scanlan success In his undertaking. Sunshine, Right Diet Aid In Whooping Cough By OB. MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor. Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hygela, the Health Magmslno When the germ of whooping cough Infects ths child, It begins to have a persistent troublesome cough, sometimes with irritation of ths lungs. This cough is worse at night and occurs In spells—some times so severe that the face turns blue and the coughing spell ends in vomiting. The organism or germ can be found when the child coughs on a plate containing a suitable culture medium. The plate Is given to the parent or nurse, who will expose It five Inches in front of ths patient's mouth for 15 seconds during a natural spell of coughing. These plates are then returned to the laboratory, where the germs are permitted to grow In an Incu bator. In 75 per cent of cases the germs of whoop ing cough can be found on the plates. When a child has whooping cough It should be put to bed and isolated from members of the family who have not had the disease. Moreover, the child should be kept away from other people for five weeks from the day the symptoms appear. The patient should be placed in a sunny bedroom, well ventilated, with temperature between 86 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. In favorable weather the patient should be kept In front of an open window during the day; in bad weather, the patient should be kept away from drafts. To prevent catching cold, the child shoyld be suit ably protected with light, yet warm, bed clothing. Sometimes a binder such as is worn by babies is wrapped around the abdomen to support the muscles during the spells of coughing. In the ordinary cases of whooping cough, the child is not very sick and may be allowed out of bed on the third or fourth day after the whooping begins. If. however, the spells of coughing occur more often than 30 times in 24 hours, or if the child has a rec ord of much trouble with the lungs, it is better to keep it in bed until it is fully convalescent. It has been found that children with whooping cough do well if they spend a considerable amount of time in the sunlight and in the warm air. but people should always protect their children by mak ing sure that the child with whooping cough is not allowed to be exposed to drafts. Due to persistent vomiting, children with whoop ing cough sometimes lose a great deal of weight. It is. therefore, necessary to watch the diet closely., giving small amounts of exceedingly nutritious foods at frequent intervals. Large amounts of food should be avoided, since they cause more irritation and more vomiting. The best time for the small feedings is 10 to IS minutes after a coughing spell. A diet containing milk, eggs, butter, fish, chicken, meat and vegetable soup is bet ter than one with an excess of potatoes, bread, starch foods, or sweet pastries. Dry, crumbly foods should be avoided. Fresh orange juice drinks are helpful in this as in other infectious diseases. Nowadays there are available special vaccines for whooping cough which seem to be good in many cases, and a number of physicians have reported successful results with the blood of convalescent patients which is Injected Into the muscles of the one who is sick. There are many exoellent drugs which aid in quiet ing the child and in relieving it from the difficult cough. These drugs, however, are strong enough so that they should be given only under direction of a doctor. Why the tavern? Wouldn’t a rose smell Just as sweet under any other name? Who ever objected to the name aaloon except the drys, politicians, and various liquor-control boards?—M Louise Gross, na tional chairman, Women's Moderation Union. You should take your Job seriously—never your self. Too many out there (to Hollywood) forget that The real ones don’t pose —Leo Carrillo, screen actor.

WASHINGTON By RAY TUCKER BOMB—High American Legion officials have Just waked up to the fact that the program for their na tional convention at 8t. Louis late this month Includes a slap In the face at the Rootevefc administra tion. It has caused consternation in inner circles. Some months ago the Legion in vited Bainbridge Colby to deliver the principal address at the annual reunion of the vets. Although the former Secretary of State was then working behind the scenes for a third, anti-Roosevelt party he had not proposed It openly. Since then his challenge to the White House has ruffled the Democrats and pleased the GOP. Th; Legion s publicists apparently failed to warn National Comman der Frank Belgrano against the in vitation to Mr. Colby. Now they wish they had. for it’s too late to withdraw the bid without making matters worse. The Legion always registers its devotion to the consti tution Mr. Roosevelt is charged with attacking, and the setting furnish es a perfect stage for anti-adminis tration oratory. • • • BONUS—The incident comes at a particularly embarrassing time. Congressional leaders have made the bonus important business lor the January session. In a reelection it stands a good chance of passage even over another veto. But the issue hangs by a thread. Although the president will veto it again he can let it glide through simply by keeping hands off. Some conservative interests formerly op posed to lull payment think it might be a good Idea to remove It from politics once and for all. Others ieel It might be advisable to put more money in circulation. Against these considerations is the admin istration's unadvertised insistence on cutting expenditures more sharp ly than most people realize. A Legion-sponsored blast by Mr Colby may blow the bonus out of the 1936 political picture. More over. the legionnaires and the Vet erans of Foreign Wars have re newed their warfare over what kind of measure should pass. With their ranks divided it looks as if the ex soldiers are running into an anti bonus barrage laid down by their political generals. • • » BARKIS — Close friend* Insist that Senator Borah will angle for the republican presidential nomina tion. Before he left for home the Idahoan defined the kind of man the GOP must nominate against President Roosevelt—and the defi nition fitted nobody but the sen ator himself. He said:—“If my party nominates the right kind of man. If they nominate somebody in whom the people have confidence as free from the control of the in terests, he will be elected. They wont care whether he is a repub lican. democrat or progressive, and there will be the greatest smashing of party lines in American political history." There are even more subtle signs that the senator is willing—at last. Although the leading sponsor of Russian recognlton he has not whispered against the administra tion's threat to cut off relations. He supported Inflation measures which, according to his private polls, are popular in the west. And .since he cast his first vote for Brvan in 1896 he has always been a sound money man. Watch Mr. Bo rah I • • • BUGGY — The government will spring several surprises when the famous New River power litigation is argued before the supreme court at the next term. Attorney Oeneral Cummings’ representatives will sum mon Chief Justice John Marshall as their chief witness against a host of private utility lawyers headed by Newton D. Baker. Mr. Baker's clients want to utilize water from New River In Vlfginia fcr a private power plant. The gov ernment opposes the grant of a water-power license on the ground that the stream Is navigable and therefore out of bounds for private utility exploitation. So the question brlls down to the actual navigability of the river. Government counsel have dug up records showing that a Virginia commission surveyed the stream In colonial days and conclud ed that It was navigable. The head of the commission was Mr. Marshall Here enters the “horse and buggy” motif. The river was navigable to small ships In use at the time of Marshall’s exploration, although modem vessels cannot traverse It. But the supreme court has held that subsequent changes dc not Invali date the original conclusions—once navigable, always navigable. So In this Instance the court’s "horse and buggy” phllosoohy may work to MT Roosevelt's advantage. • • • Issue—Republicans who are out to win. regardless of the man to be chosen tc break Roosevelt, are try ing to hold back the enthusiasts urj til issues are better defined. They calculate that court decisions will demolish much of Roosevelt's pro gram: that thereupon Roosevelt will tell the country that his program would have saved It and that he must be granted power to put his pro gram through. If this situation de velops a “real Issue" will be drawn: Roosevelt vs. the constitution. Many OOP politicians think that Colonel Prank Knox Is going too fast. They regard him as promising ma terial and they don't want to aee him whipped out before the actual fighting begins. • • • Budget—Secretary Morgenthau is quietly stepping out as something more than the president's messen ger boy. The administration's deris ion to play up economy moves Is a belated concession to the Secretary I of the Treasury and his unobstrurtv* Ot BLUE DOOR ,| - -- — - - - - " - - - - I I I wife.

Tonight, as usual, her hair lay in sculptured aeatnees above her fretted brow. “If you think you can spy on a bunch of girls—even young fools like those —and still keep your self respect, you're grimly mistaken, my friend and employer!” “It’s tor the good of the student body that yoa did this, dear Jane,” Madame said reasonably.

She pat down her cap and began to pace the floor. "Tell me all. Jane!" "Of course II tell you all.- an swered Jane Emerson impatiently ‘T wasn't snooping around In that beastly damp woods to amuse my aelf." And she talked for half so hour while Madams Leehki lis tened. Down the corridor a door opened softly, then dosed. "It's Elaine Chalmers getting home." said Madams sah&ppily. "1 shan't be able to prevent her tak ing that trip to Ohio, of course She’ll be on legitimate leave when she does It." "And God knows what harm she'll do.” said Jane Emerson. *Tt isn’t as If these were boarding school girls we're dealing with. They're grown young women.

"Especially Elaine!" echoed Ma • dame, and tried to recall what coo deep to pirn knt me wotdd dip neetkai there vu between Jane Emerson and Elaine’* family. How did that old story go?
